It’s no secret that highly productive, successful people have morning routines.
When a client is struggling with any area of their life, one of the first things I have them look at is how they start their day.
It doesn’t seem like it would have that much of an impact on a person’s results, but the truth is that, when you’re talking about achieving a goal, it can absolutely be the difference between success and failure.
When I talk about a morning routine, I mean a set of habits that you design and carry out every morning, or at least most mornings, with the intention of directing your day the way you want it to go.
It’s about being intentional with your life.
You know that days turn into weeks and weeks turn into months and months turn into years.
If you aren’t intentional about your days, those seemingly small segments of your life, it is all too easy for them to turn into years where you’re NOT making progress toward what you want,...
Welcome to Fashionably LATE with Danne Reed!
In this episode, I'm continuing the four-part series where I'm breaking down what Fashionably LATE means. The "L" stands for Living with Passion and Purpose. The "A" stands for Allowing Your Light to Shine. Those were the two previous episodes.

When I first started my personal and professional transformation journey, I was riddled with...
About 10 years ago, I embarked on a journey of discovery that would alter the course of my life in ways that are still unfolding.
Prior to that, I was living the life of any other crazy-busy mom, doing all the things, and rarely having a moment to think (or even think about thinking).
Me Time? What the hell is that!?!
The funny thing is, I was so busy every. dang. day, that I didn't have time to stop and reflect on ALL the days that were passing while I was raising the kids, feeding them and taxiing them around town, working and building a business with my husband, and let's don't forget the laundry, dishes and housework, and the occasional dinner out with friends.
But a car accident and the resulting several months of introspection, followed by a ridiculous, but pivotal argument with my husband, finally shook me loose from my day-to-day "grind" and made me realize that time was passing without my notice of it.
You know that saying, "Life is what happens while you're...
