Too many people are out there to tell you NO, that what you want isn't possible. Stay the course and continue to ask. Tell Everyone: A good idea needs to be nurtured and shared, you never know where a conversation could lead. Many entrepreneurs are afraid that if they share their ideas then someone will steal them. Someone could try to "copy" you but no one in the world will create what you can. Ask the Right People: I firmly believe that plainly asking for "it" is the most important. Simply know what you want and go for it. Once you know what you want and you tell the right people your idea, now it's time for the ask. You are not asking for a favor. You are enrolling someone in the belief that this is a possibility and you are going to make it happen.

This Girl Daisy has always admired and loved photography, so she was fascinated when she heard about a family photographer, Audrey Blake, pivot her business to get some “quarantine” captures!  In fact, her passion project #allstoopedup went viral when she photographed over 100 families in Essex County, NJ highlighting their family quarantine experience from their front stoop in her #6ftshoot to memorialize this once-in-a-lifetime event.  Her photos received national attention and were showcased on Good Morning America and The Today show. In this episode, Daisy and Audrey have a fun, loving conversation how when faced with adversity creativity can open doors and opportunities not foreseen when comfortable. In March, when the entire world was asked to stay home due to global pandemic; Audrey came up with the idea to capture this moment, in particular in her neighborhood.  She visited her neighbors and offered her professional photography services to capture them on their front door #allstoopedup while shooting the photos 6 feet apart.  What sparked this passion project for Audrey was when she heard in the news that school children where going hungry across the USA since the schools were closed and parents were losing their jobs. So, in lieu of payment Audrey requested donations to the Community Food Bank of NJ, raising thousands of dollars to help those in need. For more than 15 years, Audrey has used her gift to capture real life moments with her camera and charisma to tell family stories.  She is a storyteller with pictures.  Her infectious personality, grace and professionalism while shooting sets her apart from the crowd. If you want to freeze time and capture your children at a certain stage in their life, she's your girl!  Audrey explained to Daisy that she noticed that so many families were stuck at home experiencing beautiful moments and she wanted to help them capture them since they would someday treasure these family memories.  As a photography iphone teacher, she realized that she had the skill set and creative calling to help families around the world to catch these moments on their smart phones or cameras; so she shifted her business once again and offered a new service, Virtual Session Shoots.    Daisy was awe struck to see the quality of the photos created virtually.  You must visit her website and see the blog,  You will want to book a virtual, asap! Daisy truly admires Audrey’s work since it is all about storytelling.  She has created a very distinct portfolio of themes that she specializes in such as Bedtime stories, Legacy sessions dedicated to grandparents interacting with their grandkids and honoring the traditions of the old with the new generation. One of Daisy’s favorite is Fresh 48 which captures the first 48 hours of a newborn.   Audrey announced that she will be moving to Florida and is available for family shoots, although she travels throughout the US.

This Girl Daisy created this podcast as a digital “family room” to provide moms with a much needed self care PAUSE in their day offering tips, tools, and resources to become a better mom, better wife, and simply a better YOU!   This year one of the premier parenting resources reached out to Daisy to become a Miami Moms Blog contributor.  She was honored to have been selected, but since she always loves a good story and also loves sharing a good resource, she invited founder and owner, Cierra Bragan, to make big announcement about their 2 year VIRTUAL birthday bash...where all you Moms are invited! In this episode, Daisy and Cierra have an uplifting conversation about the importance of moms coming together since we know motherhood is “hard but it does not have to be lonely”, says Cierra.  Cierra shares with Daisy that out of her own personal need while expecting her second baby, she “birthed” the Miami Moms Blog as a business.  Not being native to Miami, and becoming a new mom in an unfamilair city can be daunting. She realized there was a need to have a trusted source that moms could turn to for everything dealing with parenting (since babies don’t come with a manual).  Therefore, Cierra brought “Miami Moms Blog” part of the City Moms Blog Network Sister Site to Miami. She explained that there are nearly 90 sites across the country dedicated to connecting local moms.  The Miami Moms Blog provides resource guides from finding the right preschool to family friendly hotels & restaurants, to photographers to party planners and so much more For now two years, Cierra has been living up to her goal to encourage, equip and empower Moms in Miami with relevant content and a meaningful community, online and offline.  So in showing her gratitude to this wonderful community of moms, Miami Mom Blogs is planning a Virtual Birthday Bash on Tuesday, July 21st – 8 – 10pm.  Visit their site for tickets.  It will be a fun night for Moms to virtually connect and have some fun.  The team at Miami Moms Blog got creative and will have a DJ, giveaways, cocktail demonstrations and much more.  Daisy and Cierra invite all Moms to give the kids to Dad for one night and get ready to dance in your living room. Stay Informed with the best mommy resource in town.  Visit Miami Mom blog website https://miami.citymomsblog.com or Follow Miami Moms Blog on Instagram, and Facebook  Let’s get this sisterhood of motherhood growing!  Subscribe today and leave Daisy a 5-star review, that’s how This Girl podcast continues to move up the charts and continues to bring you stories that matter to YOU!

After 3 months in Quarantine, the world is getting ready to head back and return slowly with a new way, new restrictions and new regulations.  But are you ready to reset?  What have you learned during quarantine?  On this episode, This girl Daisy invites mindful quarantine buddy Gabriela “Gaby” Martinez-Fonts, mindfulness ambassador and founder of Mindful Wisdom Now to reflect on lessons learned during this global pandemic.  Together they discuss what realizations and adjustments they are both willing to make before hitting the "RESET" button. Daisy and Gaby have an intuitive conversation about the positives and negatives that surfaced while being quarantined.   They share reflection exercises, which they both have done with their families in order to come back from this Universal pause with more purpose and intention to becoming better. Putting her mindfulness expertise into practice with her own family, Gaby shares how she and her family held an intentional conversation and did a reflection exercise, where she posed three questions to her family (where all three 3 kids participated – ages 8, 10 and 12): What did you like about quarantine? What did you not like about quarantine? What do you want to keep in our family that we learned during quarantine? Daisy also approached this quarantine time as an opportunity to refocus and reflect, before hitting the reset button.  She focused on a holistic approach, and did a personal inventory where she is with her body, mind and spirit.  She created a RESET report card for herself, and family to review.  This RESET report card serves to hold each other accountable in the areas where each needs to take action in becoming better.  Daisy and Gaby would be disheartened to see the world return as if nothing happened;  so tune in to their invitation on how best to reflect before you reset! The day we recorded, one of our favorite resources, the Greater Good Science Center Magazine, was in sync with our thoughts and actions and published an article asking you to list your lessons learned.

This Girl Daisy continues to shed light with an optimistic approach to this Universal Shift that the world is currently experiencing .  In the mist of the suffering; we are also witnessing the beauty of humanKIND, rising up to spread kindness all over the world (in fact, Daisy wishes the news would cover more of those stories).   Therefore, This girl was captivated to introduce to you Marly Q. Casanova an inspirational speaker, award-winning event creator, non-profit coach and philanthropist on a mission to inspire people to PARK (Perform Acts of Random Kindness) worldwide. At the early age of 10, Marly Q discovered she had the “superpower” of kindness. Marly Q shares her personal story (once featured on the TEDx platform) about how a teacher inspired her and since then she has been on a lifelong mission to inspire others to spread Kindness.  In a very fun and candid conversation, Daisy and Marly Q discuss how we all have a superpower but it sometimes takes the leap of faith, courage and lots of hard work to follow your purpose and passion.  But once you do follow your passion, it is a game changer that can change your life and make a big difference in the world. Marly Q is know for her acronyms, it is no coincidence that her non-profit PARK project stands for Perform Acts of Random Kindness.  Her mission is to be the spark that motivates people to spread kindness.  She also recently launched her own podcast, TIME to be Kind (and yes, there is an acronym – Time stands for - This Is My Experience!).  In her podcast, she interviews people that are performing “random” acts of kindness and making a difference in our world. Her superpower is contagious and I highly recommend if you are looking for a way to give back and get involved to share your kindness, become a member of her Qrew and be a PARKer.

Love is in the air this month and This Girl… Daisy, reminds you to love yourself and wants to fill your LOVE tank!   With intention, Daisy asks you to take a pause in your day to reflect, preferably write down, what you truly LOVE to do?  She challenges you (that besides loving your hubby and kids that for most of us this in on the top of the list of things we love to do) to be more introspective and search within a little deeper, and really remember at least 5 things that you LOVE to do?  Then ask yourself, when was the last time you did any of the things on that list?  For some, this exercise is not as easy as it sounds since with motherhood, moms have a high tendency to forget about themselves since they are primarily giving to others.  Daisy shares with her listeners some of the top things that she loves to do, and in fact you can probably guess some them (such as dance) since she works hard on making time for her self and intentionally shares her posts on her instagram @pocketfulofdaisy especially on Friday favorites to spark that reminder. She also reviews Gary Chapman’s Love Languages, since she is keen that this can be a game changer in your relationships; not only with your partner but with your children too.  If this is the first time you hear about Love Languages, there are five love languages: words of affirmation, acts of service, receiving gifts, quality time and physical touch.  Everyone gives and receives in a special language, and if you know which one is your loved ones it truly strengthen your relationships and makes them more meaningful. She invites you to take the quiz available on Gary Chapman’s website, to find out your Love language: https://www.5lovelanguages.com To better serve her mom listeners, our host Daisy along with Gaby Martinez-Fonts from Mindful Wisdom Now, invite you to make a date with yourself & attend their upcoming workshop dedicated to self love.  This is part of their Grit, Grace & Gratitude woman gatherings to be held on Thursday, Febraury 27th in the evening.   At this workshop, they will guide you through an interactive gathering consisting of movement, wisdom and mindfulness. Since there is no instruction manual or road map when you become a mom; the “Grit, Grace & Gratitude” workshops will give you real life shared experiences, tips, tools, and strategies to become a better mom, better wife, and simply a better YOU!  For more details about the workshop visit Daisy’s instagram or Gaby’s insta account @mindfulwisdomnow This Girl podcast was created with the soulful intention to serve woman seeking to make connections, get enlightened, inspired and to spark conversation – one story at a time!  If you enjoyed this podcast, share with a friend and subscribe today -- Rate & review - so that This Girl can continue to bring you topics that interest YOU and climb the charts For More details about This Girl podcast, visit Daisy Blanchard on instagram @pocketfulofdaisy or website: http://www.pocketfulofdaisy.com

This girl, Daisy Blanchard, is fully illuminated and excited to kick off her third season with clarity and focus especially since she is joined with her soul sister, Gaby Martinez Fonts, mindfulness ambassador and founder of Mindful Wisdom Now.  Together they created a tradition for the past 3 years to create vision boards, and on this episode, they reflect and share their personal growth journey on how the vision boards have been a positive creative tool in manifesting their dreams, one year at a time. Although some might think that vision boards are bogus, for these two inspirational women, it has proved that the power of visualization can really work. Daisy & Gaby both believe in the “law of attraction” and visualizing goals and dreams daily, can send a powerful frequency into the Universe. As they briefly reviewed their vision boards, Gaby explains some mindfulness practice techniques in achieving more clarity while creating your board.  They both agree that the beauty of vision boards is that there are no rules, and you can create what is right for you using images, words of affirmation, pictures, and embellishments like glitter and stickers (our host Daisy is a sucker for sparkle and stickers).  What is most important for them is that your vision board evokes a feeling. The more a vision board focuses on how you want to feel, the more it will come to life. Daisy & Gaby are holding their inaugural woman’s gathering to inspire and bring light to this new decade by hosting a 2020 Vision board workshop on Thursday, January 16.  For more details, visit Daisy’s instagram @ pocketfulofdaisy or Gaby’s @mindfulwisdomnow – they have limited space so if this podcast and creating a 2020 vision resonates with you; DM either of them, and take the first step in creating your vision!  Beverages and supplies included. $20 per person.

This Girl brings back Dr. Sara Dorison, child neurologist, to give us an urgent update with regards to the vaping epidemic spreading life threatening illnesses and causing deaths.  Daisy asks practical questions to Dr. Dorison about what do you do when you find out your child is vaping?  Dr. Dorison, who specializes in pediatric neurology, states that parents should not be naïve about vaping but encourages them to get informed and be proactive. The e-cigarette was first presented as a “safe alternative” but that has clearly proved otherwise. Vaping is surging among American adolescents. According to one national survey, 3.6 million middle and high school students used e-cigarettes in 2018. Dr. Dorison shares astounding facts about the immediacy of the addiction due to its concentration; a juul vaping pod is equivalent to smoking a cigarette box (more than 20 cigarettes)– the high levels of concentrated nicotine makes it highly addictive. Dr. Dorison stresses the importance of keeping your teens safe by having real honest and candid conversations with your kids as early as middle school. Yes! since they are 12 they know about vaping, it is all over the schools and the news. Dr. Dorison’s suggests to work on prevention, to test your kids for high levels of nicotine, and explain to them the real facts and concerns about vaping and addiction.  She reminds us "good kids are making bad decisions!"  Keep in mind that the vaping industry is not being regulated and the rising cases of serious illnesses is bring this industry into serious investigations.  For more information, you can also tune in to Episode 07 - part 1 on the Vaping Epidemic. Some quick facts & resources: FDA is investigating more than 215 cases of life-threatening illnesses The CDC – Center of Disease Control issued WARNING! to stop buying bootleg and street cannabis e-cigarette product The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention has a useful website onwhat the federal government currently knows about vaping and e-cigarettes.

Are you struggling with Spring Cleaning as much as I am? This Girl Daisy invites Professional Organizer, Jessica DeSiato from Thoughtfully Organized to share some insight and tips on how to declutter your home! Personally, I was intrigued with the Marie Kondo method, asking yourself does this time bring me joy? If the answer is NO, be gone with it. This Marie Kondo method is now universal technique where the Japanese organization expert teaches people around the world to rid their homes of clutter.  I read Kondo's best-selling book, The Life-Changing Magic of Tidying Up  last year, which did motivate me but it was short lived (I have a tendency to accumulate). Moreover, this year Kondo has mainstreamed her method even further when she debuted her new Netflix series, Tidying Up with Marie Kondo. I mention this because, last year, Jessica helped me clean my office space however, this is not a one time achievement.  Staying organized takes continuous effort or in my case I need a professional organizer since I suffer from the accumulation syndrome.   In Episode 28, Daisy and Jessica have a refreshing conversation about how to begin organizing your home. Jessica suggests asking yourself 4 basic questions that can help you maintain an organized home:  How long has it been since you have worn this? Does it fit you? Is it in good condition? If this was at the store today would you purchase it?
