  • Comments Off on Sage’s Rage: rules of success for #brainiacs

you’re constantly hearing you should aim for big goals.  you’re like many girls who are doing amazing things and flying off the achievement charts.  

but when the dust settles; you feel dazed and confused.   i’ve felt that way many times before.

over the years i realized i needed some tried and true tips for making it as a brainiac girl…

images1- be proud of your brainy self

often we see celebrities in the media getting all the shine.  but don’t forget there are tons of brainsters behind the scenes making moves.  be confident that your love of brainy things is all you need to be truly on top.



2- eat brain feeding food

working hard can often mean working your brain silly.                               brains needs extra special fuel to imgreskeep them working right.  i LUV smooties cause they are easy to make and pack a punch of brain busting vitamins.  pop in a blender your favorite fruits, veggies plus h20 and watch how much ‘smoother’ your brain roars.


3- take lots of breaks

imgresi love to sleep.  so much so, my family often jokes that i’m ‘doing my homework’ when i’m asleep.  but a busy girl has learned that you need to reboot when your brain is on overdrive. be sure to get a full nights rest.  also make time for zone-out breaks during the day for at least 10 minutes at a time where you do nothing but chill.

4- create fun times

working at your dreams can be a great time. but it’s really good to have a life outside of work too.  don’t feel that you have to do something that other people find fun.  if you’re not smiling or laughing out loud; it doesn’t count. whatever floats your brainy boat is where to go for fun.

  • Comments Off on Sage’s Rage: Class of 2014 difficulty awaits

It’s graduation season and lots of celebrations are happening.  

Rightfully so, because graduates have worked hard to accomplish their goals.  But it’s also clear that the day after graduation difficulty awaits.  The challenge becomes what to make of the education you have received.   You’ve got goals; go for it. But when you fall (trust me you will fail) keep getting back up…the key is try & try again…

One of my favorite teen experts, Josh Shipp, had some great words for this year’s grads.  Here’s what he has to say


i feel very honored to have received the Excellence award from Women’s Academy of Excellence (WAE) as part of their PEARLS scholarship gala.  

WAE is an all girls public school in New York.  it’s not just a school; it’s a family.  

the spirit of the school is all love.  the principal, teachers, staff and students exude respect, kindness and hard work every day.  

the award was given to me, but they deserve all the accolades for what they are doing for their communities and the world.  

to prepare so many great female minds to go out into the world is the highest achievement.  

THANK YOU WAE for all you do.

i’m leaving the TEDXTeen event totally on fire

it’s incredible how these young visionaries are making such a mark on the world at an early age

to those out there just plugging along with life, let their stories push you out of your comfort zone

don’t let age or circumstance stop you from pursuing SOMETHING that makes the world better
