In my job as a motivational speaker, here's what I SAY that I believe: That we, as women, do not need to apologize for wanting to look our best!

According to Dr. Michael Roizen, about 65,000,000 people suffer from back pain. He also says that you are likely to have a serious episode with your back once every 15 years of your life. Strangely, that's the same schedule that divorce runs on for some people. A coincidence? I think not! It's rather hard to be chipper and happy when your back is cranky!
