Fair Trade Jewelry:

Threads Worldwide partners with artisan cooperatives to create life-changing work in more than 15 countries around the world. By life-changing work, we mean just that: work then pays artisans a fair wage, empowering them to provide for their families and make a difference in their communities. We focus on women because they invest up to 90% of their income in their families and communities.


I'm so pleased to partner with Threads as a brand ambassador – their mission lights me up like Fourth of July! 

Many of the artisans who handcraft our pieces are survivors of sex trafficking, have special needs, or are facing social, economic, or political hardships. This work enables them to reach their potential to thrive, not just survive.

 

2018 #Toyota #Sequoia 4×4 TRD Sport – definitely a hauling machine with its 5.7-liter V-8 producing 381 hp and 401 lb-ft of torque. Better save up for the gas money tho!

2018 #BMW 640i xDrive Gran Turismo Review – The 640i GT isn’t a station wagon and it isn’t a crossover, so I'll just say it's a super fancy sedan.

2018 #Nissan #Armada Platinum 4×4 – this SUV was super swanky and felt luxurious – yet there were very few extra costs to all the swank was standard with the Premium model.

How to move from Surviving to Thriving

One of the highlights of my speaking engagements this year was the Rise Together Women's Conference in May. During this candid talk, I discussed childhood trauma, survivor traits, how to pivot & reinvent after trauma and, (the best part), how to THRIVE!
