Rock’n Roll Mom And Her Little Rebels

Rock’n Roll Mom And Her Little Rebels

“Don’t you dare turn the dial. Let me hear this song. I‘m gonna teach you kids about real Rock’n Roll.”

I’m on the highway with my car overflowing with rowdy little boys. My son’s in the passenger’s seat driving me crazy with his terrible DJ’ing switching between stations precisely when a good song comes on. Finally, there is some decent music to help me survive the day.

“The roof, the roof, the roof is on fire.”

“The roof, the roof, the roof is on fire.”

This is cool. Everybody’s rocking out.

Mmm. These Norwegian kids are actually learning some English from this. I’m such a good mom teaching kids valuable skills on the go while juggling family and business like a real power woman.

“We don’t need no water let the motherfucker burn.”

“Burn Motherfucker Burn.”

The car explodes with little boys screaming:

“Motherfucker. Ha ha. Did you hear that? Motherfucker!”

Oh holy shit. The kids are gonna come home cursing like adorable little death metal rockers because of me.

What’s next?

Piercing and tattoos?

My son won’t get a single play date ever again. He’ll be the cute kid with the irresponsible mother they have to protect their children against.

This might make me the black sheep of the neighborhood but I have decided to follow Chrissy Hynde’s example: stop pretending to be a responsible cookie baking kind of mother and instead fully embrace my inner rock’n roll mom.

Taking up smoking would just make me cough too much and maybe even puke, so how can I get into the rock groove as fast and easy as possible.

The answer of course is getting my dirty hands on the ultimate rebel garment: A leather jacket.

Now if I was a really bad mom I would of course go out and flirt with a bearded, tattooed guy just to steal his jacket, but since there’s still an ounce of goodness left in me I think I’ll go shopping instead.

Here’s a quick look at my favorite Rock Mom Leather Jackets:

You’re Too Old To Dress Like That!

You’re Too Old To Dress Like That!

Who do you think you are Hilde?!?

You can’t dress like that.
That dress is way too sexy for someone your age. Ever heard the expression “mutton dressed as lamb?”

My inner critic was getting all riled up and had even taken on a posh British accent since I finally had made it to London and was shopping on beautiful Regent Street.

I didn’t dare walk into the Karen Millen store. A gorgeous feminine palace full of sexy man-eater dresses that were just a tad too expensive. Not a place for a suburban mom like me.

I scraped some courage from the bottom of my purse, sneaked inside, and tried it on.

The dress fit me like a glove.

Still I wasn’t the type to dress like that. I was a respectable slightly boring mom wasn’t I? My young wild days were long gone.

Looking for some objective feedback I asked some cute, young American girls for their honest opinion. I couldn’t detect any deceit in their eyes when they said the dress was perfect, so I pulled out my credit card.
The Sexy Dress was left hanging all alone in my wardrobe for 2 months.

I wore on the first warm summer day and felt like such a fraud.

I was self-consciously pulling it down to cover my wrinkled knees and imagined people talking about me behind my back. “Look at her.”

The next time felt much easier and before long I was so at ease in it that I even wore it to work.

Now the dress is the star in my About page photo and it was worth every single penny.

I’m so happy I silenced that inner voice and took a chance on a new exciting garment that turned ME into a new exciting person.

We all have ideas about who we should be and how we should look, but are these old ideas really in our best interest?

Are we projecting a brave and powerful image to our clients?

Are we strong and inspiring role models for younger women?

 

How would YOU dress if you could look at yourself objectively and see yourself in the same positive light that other people do?

I bet you would be sexy, vibrant, edgy, power- and colorful!

Do you perhaps also have amazing garments crying in the closet because they never get to go to the party?

Or – have you longingly stared at that perfect dress in the store window and thought that it wasn’t for you?

I’m dying to hear your stories.

Is this what it’s like to be married to Tony?

Is this what it’s like to be married to Tony?

“Did you cut yourself shaving again honey?

OMG. You’ve got bloody cuts all over your chest!”

My Bodyguard aka husband just looked down and said:

“Yeah it’s the ice.

Tony made me do it.”

 

You see. He was taking his Tony Robbins morning routine very literally.

Every morning he would go for a jog in the dark winter morning all while shouting Tony’s incantations along the way:

“Every day in every way, I’m getting stronger, STRONGER, S T R O N G E R.”

High as a kite on endorphins and self-help, he would strip off and dive into the crazy cold North Sea.

This morning there was ice on the water but there was no way that was gonna stop HIM.

Just freaking DO IT.

He thought of Tony. Jumped in. Cracked the ice with his feet.

WOOAHH. I’m Superman!

The shock of the icy water was nothing compared to the numbing pain of realizing: “I’m surrounded by razor sharp ice and I can’t get out!”

He WAS able to get out but not without blood, tears, and a newfound realization that “Just Do It” can get really ugly.

Strangely enough it’s the same in online business – also when it comes to style.

Our coaches and gurus tell us to just get over our fears and Just Do It but honestly: Sometimes we fall flat on our faces because we’re not prepared.

My beautiful biz buddy, let’s call her Donna was devastated when she caught a glimpse of herself in the TV monitor in the studio.

“Who’s that fat old lady? Oh, no. I look like my mom!”

She was in the middle of being interviewed on national TV but forgot all about what she was going to say when she saw herself on the screen. Donna simply froze and uttered a few stupid sentences before they kicked her off the podium:

“OMG. I was a disaster and everyone will see me fail on national TV.”

Donna’s favorite blue dress that she had thought looked wonderful was SO ugly on camera. It amplified every single bulge on her body.

“OMG. I had no idea I had all that back fat! If only I had taken the time to prepare and get myself a dress that made me look beautiful.”

She had jumped into doing the TV interview but just like my husband she was now up to her neck in freezing water surrounded by ice daggers – or rather: she was being broadcast on national TV looking like a frumpy old mom instead of a successful business woman.

But how do you prepare your outfit for a TV appearance and do you actually need to?

Look, if you’re in online business then you WILL be doing all these outward facing marketing activities like Facebook Live, webinars, TV-shows, video podcast interviews, YouTube interviews, and TV shows.

The only way to nail them is to look so super confident that you can focus 100 % on delivering your message and not worry about your outfit. Then you have the added pleasure of having everyone compliment you on how gorgeous you look too.

It really pays to think ahead and learn what to wear at these events because your old dress or your work-from-home yoga pants just won’t cut it.

 

Most women are afraid of looking big and this is a real concern when there’s a camera involved since what they say is true: The camera adds 10 lbs.

The very best way to look slim and sleek on and off camera is to learn to dress for your body type.  The blouse that looks good on a small chested lady doesn’t work for a big chested one and vice-versa. Our bodies are all different and this means we all need different clothes.

It doesn’t have to be hard though.

I have created a quick mini-guide called The Instant Tummy Tuck and Booty Booster where I show you how to look 10 lbs lighter using fashion tricks alone.

You’ll learn the 3 most common mistakes women make when dressing their bodies starting with a warning about the Big Mac top:

Exactly like the infamous hamburger, this top is everywhere and everyone buys it – but all it does is ruin your figure.
