Tell us about your program “40 And Fabulous! How to Stay Fit from Your 20s to Your 50s”?
Forty And Fabulous is all about paying attention to your changing body. Being a high-performance athlete, my body is constantly changing. There’s a need for certain vitamins, foods, exercise – everything counts. I have learned how to monitor where my body is and make adjustments as necessary. Forty And Fabulous teaches women what to look for and how to be in tuned with their body – and then shares tips to help them make those adjustments. I had to learn how to do this the hard way. I don’t want other women to fall into the same pitfalls that I did.
What advice and motivational words would you share with budding models and fans to help them climb the ladder of success?
Four things. Go to a good modeling school. Get good pictures. Get an agent. Then, fight like hell for it. The first three dictate preparation. The last determines your will. Nothing in life is going to be easy, you might as well at least be on a road where you can live your passion.
You have been recognized as celebrity ambassador, donating countless hours to motivating thousands of high school students, military families and Troops, as well as creating awareness for animal rescue and welfare through your www.pawtographs.org foundation. How has giving back impacted you?
One of the greatest accomplishments I have ever achieved was when a high school student said, “Because you did it, I can do it too.” Each one of us has the ability to impact a life and open a mind, to get someone to believe enough in themselves – to at least try. If we, as leaders, can follow that up by being supportive and kind with regard to their efforts – whether they succeed or fail, that’s even more impacting. Whether I’ve helped people or animals, sometimes my efforts feel drowned in the
Overwhelming abuse of this world – but then I remember, that’s unproductive. Because in helping one child or one animal, if everyone lived this thought, together we’d make a difference.
