This week we’re talking – Self-Esteem! What do you do when you’re self esteem tanks?

We all know that our worth and self-value starts in childhood and that, as adults, we behave according to what we believe and how we feel about ourselves. Take your self-esteem and identify seriously. Identify a way to work on strengthening your self-esteem every day. Need an idea, keep reading……

My guest is one mother that took matters into her own hands. When her daughter began to question her worth and her identity, Mom got busy! Múkami Kinoti Kimotho’s designed and produced a line of 13 dolls to impact the lives of children worldwide. But to her surprise, many adult women started purchasing the dolls for themselves. They stated, the dolls symbolized pride, motivated them and touched them deeper than affirmations. So now, along with affirmations on the refrigerator, they now have an Avatar on their desk. Encouraging them to stay the course and follow their plans to design a life around the things they like to do versus the things they must do.
