Three Message of Self-Reliance
#1 Flush the Fear, a DIY Guide to Eliminating Fear. It's a Moving Experience. I challenge you to boldly go where no one has gone before. Equipped with 2 ply TP and a plunger, I'll talk about the experience of living a self-reliant life; one without fear, dependency, and negativity. Be prepared for sassy and slightly irreverent humor while drawing you out from the messy mindset that holds us all back in life. I promise it's clean; even for your grandma's ears! I open up my tool box to arm you with knowledge, skill and guts to let it go. Because the most important Do It Yourself project you will ever tackle is not the toilet flapper - It is YOU!
#2 DIY Branding - How I landed 80+ TV appearances in Philly and How You Can Too! I share tips on how to connect to the media, pitch for air time and brand yourself as a trusted resource for repeat content. You learn the right approach to building lasting media relationships without hiring a PR agent. Let the world know what you have to offer!
#3 DIY Skills Every Girl Ought to Know - Home ownership doesn't have to be scary or costly. You don't have to feel like a fish out of water in the home center. Learn basic DIY moves to save money, time and aggravation taking care of your home, office or apartment. Clogs, leaks, loss of power and more. Self-reliance may start with the toilet, but spills over into real life to build smart, capable and confident women. Don't underestimate the girl with a drill!
