Born to Be a Badass

Oct 14, 2019

This episode was such fun to record! My daughters are both in their 20s, one lives in Boston and is a PR professional, and the other lives in Silicon Valley and is a bartender and student of graphic design.

Their experiences and insights are different but complementary, and they share very useful tips on how to deal with common challenges that affect not just millennials but all women.


  • The bar scene, unwanted attention, setting boundaries, dealing with inappropriate questions
  • Friends looking out for each other – tips and tools
  • Street scenarios
  • Using ride-sharing services (eg. Über and Lyft)

This episode is being brought to you by the Born to Be a Badass Prep School – the premiere self protection course that teaches you everything you should have been taught about how to be safe in the world as you were growing up but weren’t.

If you’re like me, you were taught how to cross a street and how to swim, but probably heard very little if anything at all about the dangers you might encounter at work, in your relationships or out an about in the world. Maybe that’s because your parents didn’t know what to teach you, or maybe it was just assumed that bad things might happen to other people but not to you.

THIS is the program I wished existed when my own daughters were growing up. Heck, it’s what I needed to learn and never had a clue about in my younger days.

The Prep school is an online program where you will change your mindset and learn to make the most of your innate abilities to protect yourself. You’ll learn what to look for and how to recognize potential dangers, what to do in bad situations, and how to manage fear. You’ll discover how to tap into your body’s natural protective skills if you have to fight, and how to deal with the aftermath of an incident.

Not only is this a virtual program you can do from anywhere at any time, you get lifetime access to the content, access to my private support group, AND a gift certificate to use towards one of my LIVE hands-on training events that builds upon this Prep School curriculum.
