Behind every successful person is a mentor, a coach, a consultant, a friend full of encouragement or tough love — or both. 

And whether we’re talking about success in business, leadership, parenting, or life, behind every story — however you define success — there’s also a pile of good books!

I have one you need to add today. Continue Reading Book Recommendation: The Financial Mindset Fix

With the entire world watching, Simone Biles is teaching us one of the greatest lessons of all time on success versus self-care.

Dedication feels like an understatement to describe what it must take to survive the grind necessary for an American athlete to make it to the Olympics. Simone has made it look easy, shattering records to become the most decorated gymnast in the world. And let’s not forget her incredible courage to fight for survivors of the horrific abuse at the hands of Dr. Larry Nassar, or that she grew up in foster care after first struggling with hunger in a home where her mother battled addiction.

If you’ve been a part of the Think Tank of Three tribe for a while, you might have noticed the crickets around here. During the last few months, we have hit some roadblocks and had major changes come into our lives. Instead of trying to push on through and deliver sub-par or half-assed content, we took our own advice and took a break.

But we have regrouped, brainstormed, made some changes and updates to the site, and are now back and working to bring you more support and empowerment from successful women in our community.

We still have a bit more work to do before we are able to share our newest guests and updated posts so sit tight. I promise new content is coming and we couldn’t be more excited for it!

To keep you inspired until then, we wanted to share some of the content that we’ve been reviewing and relistening to as we build back up to Think Tanking again. In the spirit of putting on our own oxygen masks first, we pulled some of our most popular posts on Self-Care out of the vault for you.

The year 2020 will go down in the books as a year of change. A year of unveiling, unburying, unburdening. It will be known as the year of the pandemic. The year of #blacklivesmatter and a push for social change. The year 2020 is the year Think Tank lost a third and gained a third. We learned painful lessons. We saw soaring successes. It was darkness and light. Pain and inspiration.

As we come together to finish off 2020 and look ahead for the opportunities of 2021, we hope you know how grateful we are for all of you. This tribe has been the light that helped us grow, mourn, learn, and unlearn. Thank you for being a part of this amazing community of women empowering women.

See you in 2021!

This is part two of a two-part series with Dr. Dorian Hunter. Welcome back to part two of episode #39.

We’ve had seven months now to get used to the new normal between the pandemic, life in quarantine, the mask debate, civil unrest, the kids at home, working remotely or trying to work remotely or not working remotely. The economy is shifting. The election is coming up and the news is constantly telling us it is the worst of times.

What the hell is normal, and how do we cope with a life that is so far from normal, let alone thrive? Continue Reading Mental Health in 2020 with Dr. Dorian Hunter – Episode #39 Part 2

The holiday season is kicking off and we at the Think Tank are watching the end of this year with great anticipation. Needless to say, 2020 has been a whirlwind, crazy, and chaotic year filled with lessons, struggles, and successes.

As we reflect on where we are and where we’ve been, we want to take a quick pause to say thank you to our readers, our listeners, our guests, our teams, our friends and our family. You are all an incredible tribe that we are so proud to be a part of.

Thank you from the Think Tank of Three.
