The internet is FULL of online assessments for your personal and professional growth. And, yours truly is a sucker for a great online assessment! I’m all in. All in! But you want to be careful before you start just clicking your name and email into any ol’ website so here is a list of my favorite for personal and professional growth assessments:

LifeScore Assessment

I love Michael Hyatt! Though truth be told I rarely remember his name and often say something like, “You know, the guy who was CEO of Thomas Nelson.” Name forgetting aside I LOVE the LifeScore Assessment so much all of my private coaching clients complete it every quarter.

16 personalities

The 16 personalities website explains their assessment this way, “get a “freakishly accurate” description of who you are and why you do things the way you do.” Sounds good, right? Start your own journey of discovery at


The GEMS® personality training has been a long standing favorite of mine. Not only does it break down what your own unique personality is, it also gives you information on what motivates you and how to communicate with all personality types. The complete training is available on her website. However, you can get a FREE personality starter kit at

Mandy just found this amazing assessment on how to bring more of your own unique personality into your brand. In my opinion this is a game changer, and a must for every business owner!

Are You Emotionally Healthy?

Do you ever wonder if you are emotionally healthy? Technically if you even wonder that at all it’s a sign you in fact are. But let’s talk about how to improve your emotional health and let things go.

In an article called Improving Emotional Health by authors Melinda Smith, M.A., Robert Segal, M.A., and Jeanne Segal, Ph.D., emotional health is defined as having:

A sense of contentment. A zest for living and the ability to laugh and have fun. The ability to deal with stress and bounce back from adversity. A sense of meaning and purpose, in both their activities and their relationships. The flexibility to learn new things and adapt to change. A balance between work and play, rest and activity, etc. The ability to build and maintain fulfilling relationships. Self-confidence and high self-esteem.

We will all experience negative and damaging emotions in our lives, so we must know how to effectively handle them in advance!

A wise woman once said, “We are all born with the ability to get over it!” When we were children and fell down, we didn’t stay mad at the pavement for days or harbor ill feelings towards our shoes. We got back up, we brushed ourselves off (Or mom/Dad did!) and we got over it.

You have to get over things if you want to be emotionally healthy as an adult.

I know life has hurt you more than just falling on the pavement did. I know what happened to you wasn’t fair. It hurt so damn bad. But emotionally healthy people learn how to get up and get over it. They learn how to forgive and release. Even if it’s 2 steps forward and 1 steps back.

Emotionally healthy people take care of themselves so that when bad things happen, they are better able to deal with them. Resting, exercising, letting it go, writing in a journal, praying, eating well-balanced meals, and spending time with others.

When you let things go and take care of yourself, you will be emotionally healthy. They are small but simple steps you can implement today to improve your emotional health.
