Best Ever YOU Magazine Fall 2023

Updated: Oct 19, 2023

The Fall 2023 issue of YOU Magazine is here!

What a perfect time to be YOU! Fall is a perfect time to set some new goals and assess your life. It’s a season of change. It can be very calming to be ahead of the wave of the holiday season by taking a step back to pause and implement some new goals and set boundaries to create success in all areas of your life. Without this intentional thinking and behavior, we’re often carried into the holiday season and feel like we can’t get ahead. Even after the holidays as we push into January, sometimes we look back at our bank account, health or more and feel that aftermath of exhaustion rather than joy.

This season’s issue is all about showing up for yourself in all moments. We welcome Sophia A. Nelson as our feature and cover, who is the author of several bestselling books including Woman Code and Be the One You Need. When I first met Sophia, it was during one of our online Best Ever You Conferences where she agreed to be the keynote. As she was speaking it was difficult to put my pen down as I was taking so many notes. I walked away with a sign that hangs over my office desk “Remember Your Value”. It’s something that reminds me of Sophia and reconnects me to myself time and time again. I’m so very grateful for her time, energy, and kindness I am proud to share her wisdom and teachings with our audiences. If you haven’t done so already, I’d encourage you to pick up her books, as they are gamechangers.

We have several contributors in this issue who also share their expertise with us. They take on the topics of anxiety, depression, and chronic pain and help us be our best through these moments.

We'd also like to thank Stephanie Honikel for her beautiful photography for our featured guest, Sophia A. Nelson. Stephanie Honikel is a top rated and highly experienced Northern Virginia Newborn Photographer specializing in newborn and family portraits in Northern Virginia and the Washington, D.C. metro area. From providing personal wardrobe styling to creating beautiful custom artwork, Stephanie truly offers a one of a kind and stress-free experience for her clients.

Whatever is going on in your life, both positive and perhaps challenging, this issue helps you pause, reflect, and regroup and what better time than now to start. I offer a free life assessment at – click Toolbox. This assessment is one that I use in my life, around this time in September, which is my birthday month. Often people will download this assessment and complete it during the holidays to stay on track or around the first of the year to set intentions and actions for the new year.

We’re here for you! it’s an amazing time to learn, grow, change and find success in all areas of your life.
