Advice from our WSA Experts

We asked our featured guests to share some of their valuable wisdom with us.

Dr. Darlean shares that “you shall live and not die, please allow me to show you how. Call me, write me or visit me and I’ll be there for you even when you don’t know there is a you.”

Shinese says “fear is a natural instinct don’t make it an obstacle use it as fuel to propel you to reach your goals. You can not experience growth when you remain in your comfort zone so own your career, build a powerful personal brand and improve your image.”

NatalieĀ encourages us not to deny negative emotions, but instead go through them, follow their path. They will lead you to deeply buried pieces of you that are the key of long lasting fulfillment.

Marnie champions us to remembers that “o matter where you are or where you come from there is nothing that you cannot bounce back from. Facing, Letting go and burying the damage outside ourselves is the key.”
