Abiola Abrams – Author and Empowerment Coach

Join Me at the ‘Body Love, Body Acceptance, Body Bliss Healing Retreat’ in The Berkshires! (Video)

Do you want to take the same issues with you into the new year?

This year has been a powerful and a year of transition for many of us.

Are you ready for 2015 in mind, body, and spirit?

My mission of changing the world by helping Big Vision Women change their corners of the world is coming into fruition with miracles, mojo, and magic!

I started out with a new program called the Love Body Spirit Whole Life Detox Program and then published my second book, the award-winning “Sacred Bombshell Handbook of Self-Love.” Every day, I become more clear about my coaching practice, writing, and speaking as my ministry and everything I do as an act of service.

I know now that I am the Midwife for Your Inspired Life and I am going to be partnering with other coaches to bring you powerful offerings. This healing and empowerment retreat for women is one such magical experience. Wherever you are, I hope that you can join us in Massachusetts…

How to Stop Self-Sabotaging Your Business!

Just for Heart-Centered Entrepreneurs! 7 Ways We Sabotage Our Own Success! (Audio)

How are you sabotaging your business success?

How do you as a heart-centered business owner define being an entrepreneur?

“it’s time to make an important distinction about what, at bottom, a true entrepreneur is. Why? Because it concerns the very engine of economic growth and the people we are counting on—desperately—to rev it up. Consider the following two definitions of “entrepreneur”: one found in Merriam-Webster’s dictionary, the other from Dictionary.com. Merriam-Webster: “one who organizes, manages and assumes the risks of a business or enterprise.” Dictionary.com: “a person who organizes and manages any enterprise, especially a business, usually with considerable initiative and risk.” The difference is subtle, but fundamental: It’s the word “any.”

Dictionary.com has it right: Entrepreneurs, in the purest sense, are those who identify a need—any need—and fill it. It’s a primordial urge, independent of product, service, industry or market.” – Via Forbes Magazine

‘We must, we must, we must increase our bust.’ – Judy Blume; Remember that?

“The five year survival rate of breast cancer is over 90% when caught early. The first sign is often a breast lump or an abnormal mammogram. Stages range from early and curable to metastatic breast, with a variety of treatments. Male breast cancer is not uncommon and must be taken seriously.”  – WebMD

Inner Bully Redux: The Shadow of The Inner Critic (For Mental Health Week)

“Sticks and stones will break my bones but words will never hurt me.” That’s a lie — and the most damning words often come from ourselves. We say things to ourselves that we wouldn’t say to our worst enemies. I share tactics and healing techniques on how to make peace with and change the impact of the Inner Critic in the Sacred Bombshell Handbook of Self-Love.

Let’s talk about it. The photo is from an upcoming shoot I did for the web series “The Drive.”
