No joke. I bawled my eyes out.
I couldn't figure out why I felt so emotional and at first I struggled to make sense of it. I tried at least 3 times to write a blog explaining how I felt and I realized that I wasn't being true to my emotions. Whenever something is heavy on my chest, I express myself better in video. And so this morning while in my pj's, I jumped on InstaStories and went live.
I tried keeping it short, but if you know me, that's hard! Anyhoot, indulge me for a minute or two and tell me what you think/how you feel about reaching another decade.
Watch my video below:
Who knew this topic would resonate with so many people? I first shared this message on my InstaStories (@iamjamgamble) and was told that I absolutely needed to share it with others as it will be gone in 24hrs!
Conflict is definitely something we've all gone through once or more in our lives and I'm sure we've experienced the physical side effects. In this short video, I actually thank my negative experiences for their rich and valuable lessons.

When I've been interviewed for articles or have sat on a panel, I am often asked how I manage to do it all.
I find myself stumped because I don't feel like I do it all! I am simply doing what I love...which I guess seems like a lot because they all fall into different categories yet are all connected.
As a young woman growing up, I remember being coaxed by my parents and sometimes teachers to find a job that could provide me with financial security. Back then it had nothing to do with what you loved but more about which could give you better pay, benefits, and a pension. Now that I am older, it finally makes sense why I changed my mind every year in high school about (interior decorator, culinary chef, midwife, and CSI agent...see where my mind was?...) what I wanted to be when I grew up. I wasn't meant to be just one thing! I guess...I was meant to do it all.
In this interview with ON TV, I talk briefly about how I discovered my personal brand and ultimately what that did to help my career soar.
So what about you? Are you someone who believes in the 'power' of personal branding? Are you like me and have multiple passions on the go? I'd love to hear how you juggle it all! Share your answers below and help start a discussion!

I’ve been carrying a sack of guilt for the past month and it’s finally taken a toll on me. I’m calling it out, I’m addressing it, and I’m taking control.
I’ve been trying to determine what I’ve been carrying in this big ol’ sack of mine. Is it a feeling of inadequacy? Am I going about things wrong? Am I not doing as well as those around me? What is this feeling?!
Last night as I was trying to tackle my to-do list at 11:30 PM it came to me. I am feeling this way because I have a Fear of Not Keeping Up.
I’ll be the first to raise my hand and admit that I am an impulsive idea starter. Are you too? Something comes to me, I jump on it, and thennnn…..another idea pops up and that last one takes a temporary back seat. Sometimes I manage that feeling, and other times, like now, it begins to eat me up inside.
So I decided to share my concept of FONKU on Facebook Live. I talk about what FONKU is and how to deal with it. Yes, it’s long! When I’m super passionate or excited about something and start vlogging, it’s hard to summarize in 5-10 minutes! So please, allow me to have your attention for 20 minutes.
Perhaps FONKU is the reason behind how you’re feeling now. If so, talk about it! Share your feelings, let out those fears, and give yourself permission to not feel guilty if you’re not keeping up. Believe me when I say that it's OK!
I’d really love to hear your take on FONKU, so please be sure to share your comments and feedback!
Last week I had a revelation. It dawned on me, yet again, that although our work environments expect us to go above and beyond, some people around us, don't. Why is this so? Is it jealousy? Is it competition? I've tried to figure this out for years and I still haven't figured it out!
I took this topic to Facebook Live and I'm glad I did because I had friends who felt comfortable enough to talk about their passion conflicts in their work places.
Below is the full video and I am absolutely confident that it will resonate with many of you. If you know of someone else who can benefit from this message, please be sure to share this blog with them.
Stay well friends,
