Our resident confidence coach, Jen, recently created a poll (turned mega-thread!) over in our #teamtall group. From this, she has created an epic 3 part, 'Tall Body Series'. It's a brilliantly relatable read and you'll be able to have your say by voting in the poll at the end of the article. You can see the full post on ☞ tallguides.com but here's a taster... “You’re rather masculine, aren’t you?!” I froze. My 13 year-old-self stood, rooted to the spot; towering over my peers and the pretty, popular girls who had befriended this particularly gobby lad in the year above, who was desperately trying to impress them.
I could hear the girls stifling awkward giggles, and found myself juggling the urge to burst into tears with visions of ripping his smug face off.
Tipping 5’9” (and counting, back then), with size 8 feet and a dress-size-up from my own mother, I constantly felt like a giant sore thumb compared to the petite, dainty girls who were everywhere I looked. Even with my best mate coming in at just two inches shorter than me, I was nowhere near confident in my own skin, and hadn’t yet found much courage in my young voice, either.
But then all of a sudden, out of the blue, came my reply. I coolly shrugged, and looked him dead in the eye: “I’m probably more masculine than you’ll ever be.” The crowd cracked up. He stood there grappling for words. One of the girls turned to me, and through hysterical squeals uttered, “Great come-back!” I turned on my heels and marched off with my friends, perplexed as to what had just happened and very aware of the heartbeat inside my ears.
To this day, I still have no idea what came over that shy, self-conscious girl to produce that kind of SASS. I would truly love to go back in time and give younger-me a massive hug, for standing up for myself so hilariously.
And besides, what’s so bad about masculinity?! (Dictionary connotations include ‘strong’ and ‘bold’; I’ll take that). For me, this is one of those go-to memories that I believe defined my choice to pro-actively pursue confidence, over insecurity.... Read the rest on ☞ tallguides.com
Our resident confidence coach Jen is back & this week she's shining a spotlight on mental health. "...Ladies, it’s time to talk about what’s going on in these glorious, high-rise heads of ours.
Some of you may have seen a popular article trending on social media lately, whereby Michigan-based Madalyn Parker shared an email conversation with her boss about taking two days’ sick leave, for the benefit of her mental health.
One of the reasons this piece attracted so much attention was the response she received from her company CEO, Ben Congleton; in which he celebrated her proactive decision to prioritise her mental wellbeing by doing whatever it took to look after herself. (What was that, Ben? I can’t hear you beneath the pile of CV’s that just have flooded into your life!) But quite honestly – would you do it, ladies? Couldyou do it… if you needed to?
Time. Space. Help.
Three game-changers which can revolutionise a multitude of problems; from burnout to anxiety; insomnia to stress..." Read the full article over on the wellbeing pages at tallguides.com 🔝 Link In Bio

Our resident confidence coach Jen knows what it feels like when life punches you in the face... and she's fighting back! "...Have you ever felt like you’re living out some bizarre, Bill Murray-less groundhog day?
Inertia has her beastly claws in you, and you’re sick of experiencing, quite literally, the same sh*t day in and day out with no clear idea of how you can get out of it.
There is one of two ways this is going to pan out, dear tall one.
1. You aren’t quite sick of it enough to change anything just yet. And that’s ok. There’s only so long we can stay put before we’re truly ready to move. The right time will come; and when it does you’ll be ready and raring to go.
2.Things need to change. Like, yesterday. Staying in this situation, this scenario that actually isn’t true to what you WANT or who you ARE, is no longer an option. Not for one more single second, sister.
Just recently I had one of those metaphorical life experiences happen which puts this whole conversation into a real-life, tangible context..." read the rest 👊 link in bio ☝️

Our resident confidence coach Jen has got her winning mindset on as she pushes her comfort zone & prepares for today's white collar boxing match to raise money for charity. Her latest article is a brilliantly motivating read: 'Another One Bites The Dust'
"...I love this song by Queen. (Come to think of it, actually, I love every song by Queen <3). With my first ever boxing match looming in just a few days (yup – still not done talking about this badboy) I’ve been spending a bit of time this past week or so pumping up my confidence, my self-belief and my grittiest, most badass inner determination. It’s sass central over here.
After all, if I’m not walking into this with a winning mindset… What the heck am I going to be walking out with?!..."
