Female IQ Venting Challenge

The other day I was training a client and our conversation went something like this:

CLIENT: I’m just not feeling it today.

ME: Some days are like that. What’s going on.

CLIENT: I just feel like I’m 50 and I want to be doing something work-wise that I’m proud of.

ME: Oh, I’m 42 and I still think to myself, “What do I want to be when I grow up.”


ME: Absolutely. There are days I feel completely unmotivated to do anything with Female IQ. In fact, I’ve been a content rut all week.

CLIENT: I just want to cry sometimes.

ME: I think a lot of do.

CLIENT: It is good to know I’m not the only one!

After our venting session, we decided to do a 45-minute workout and we both slayed it. Laughing as we did a challenging ab exercise. Cursing burpees. And getting our sweat on. It was as if we needed just bitch for a minute and just shed some of our frustrations before we could be energized to do the workout.

Inasmuch, post-workout we both went to our respective offices and crushed some deadlines. Suddenly, I had content to post and she launched into a project she had been procrastinating to start.

This week Female IQ challenges you to vent. Whether you scream into a pillow, have a FaceTime bitch session with a friend, or you write down everything that’s appears to be getting in the way of your success, just #vent.
