Let Go of Comparison and Cultivate Confidence with former Miss Nevada - Hilary Billings

Let Go of Comparison and Cultivate Confidence with former Miss Nevada - Hilary Billings

June 7, 2021

She shares her journey from inadequacy to confidence and invites us as women to build each other up and let comparison go.

Meet former Miss Nevada, celebrity interviewer, red carpet host and recovering perfectionist - Hilary Billings.

She’s the host of the Red Carpet Confidence Podcast. She shares her journey from inadequacy to confidence. Hint: “Fake it till you make it” isn’t the answer.

She’s shared the stage with the likes of William Shatner and Bon Jovi...and the list goes on and on.

She’s been a featured contributor for USA Today, Elle, Huffington Post, Extra, and Entertainment Television.

Her story is more than glitz and glam. She is also a burn survivor and a graduate school reject...and that’s where her mission and passion come from.

It is nearly impossible to not feel inadequate in a world where accomplishment badges are everywhere. Hilary calls them, ‘Comparison Monsters’, and they cripple our confidence.

Align your actions and your words bit by bit, until you feel what you seek to feel.

Parent Teacher Conferences: Quick Tips for Parents with Dr. Ray Queener - What Questions to Ask

Parent Teacher Conferences: Quick Tips for Parents with Dr. Ray Queener - What Questions to Ask

June 3, 2021

Do you ever wish you knew the right questions to ask at a parent teacher conference? What if Parent Teacher Conferences were comfortable and easy for you and you walked out feeling really great about your child and their progress in school? Wouldn't you love if someone gave you questions to ask your child’s teacher? When things are going well and when things may be a little rocky. Well, I have just the answer for you! 

Dr. Ray Queener recently retired as Superintendent in Minnesota and is one of few superintendents who was never a school principal. He’s a father of three, and likes to hunt, fish, golf and read. Currently, Dr. Queener is a senior consultant for Teamworks International, a coaching company for school and district administrators. Today he is on our podcast because he knows exactly what’s it like when you have to meet with a teacher for a regular parent teacher conference and maybe when you have to meet under not the greatest of circumstances. 

I invited him on our show today to help you the next time you have a meeting with your child’s teacher. Maybe you get an email from your child’s teacher saying they want to meet with you and your heart skips a beat? What happened? What did my child do? Or, maybe you have parent conferences coming up and you are secretly dreading it. Well, after talking to Dr. Queener, he was sharing with me ways to think about and plan for your parent conference that I think might help you know what to say to your child’s teacher in a conference, questions to ask to get the results you both want: your child to be successful, thrive, grow, love school and to become life long learner!
