Fight Collagen Deficiency



Did you know the physical signs of aging in your skin, hair, and nails have less to do with “getting older” and more to do with a collagen deficiency?

Luckily, you can restore your collagen levels to feel your best again with NativePath’s Grass-Fed Collagen Powder.

Collagen acts as an antioxidant, which helps to fight off harmful free radicals and repair previous skin damage, leading to a reduction in dark spots.

We suggest enjoying 2 scoops a day (morning coffee is a great way to do this!) to get the max benefits.

Fulfillment Stuck? Pivot Your Career Path


You’re a talented and ambitious person… so WHY aren’t you getting the fulfillment or happiness you deserve in your career?

The traditional career ladder might have you stuck.

But it’s NOT your fault! Flexible career planning – the kind that adjusts with your life stages and creates true happiness – is NOT taught in school.

QUICK TIP: Start with a “Good Vibes File”. Round up all the positive feedback, accolades and wins you’ve accomplished recently. Are there any common themes? What was it about these projects that really lit you up? That’s a good place to start steering your career towards! But, while it’s a quick win, I know that tip won’t answer all your questions…

That’s why I’m offering a FREE mini-guide called: “Define Your Dream Career in 5 Easy Steps”.

You’ll gain strategies to instantly clarify your work related values, unique talents and strengths, and identify the world of options available to you, so you can…

  • Escape the cycle of quiet quitting and burnout,
  • Connect with your work from the heart, and
  • Get on track towards happiness in your career – FAST!

I have helped so many clients create careers and lifestyles they LOVE using these exact strategies – and I’m going to hand them to you for FREE.

Click “Download” to get your free copy.

Life isn’t a straight line, and your career doesn’t have to be either! It’s time to trade that feeling of being stuck on a rigid ladder for a career path that’s as free and vibrant as you.

It’s 100% free, get it here!

Pumpkin pet of the week

Meet Pumpkin — he was adopted via the local Animal Humane Society.

His humans can’t believe no one else wanted him because he’s so sweet and affectionate (when it’s on HIS terms).

Pumpkin loves to curl up and hang out in a basket, crawl all over his parents in the middle of the night demanding pets and asking for treats. He loves to lay on his human’s legs during naps on the couch.

His family loves him with all their hearts!

💌 We’re huge pet lovers at The Assist and want to feature a pet each week — fill out this form for your fur baby to be featured!
