Sex and relationship expert, Hilary Silver, joined us on Inside the Women of Denver to discuss some of the most common challenges couples face. Hilary’s model for healthy, fulfilling relationships that last involves two wholes - not two halves that make a whole.
Hilary’s model relies on two individuals both self defining, self determining, autonomous people who make up a relationship. Despite the many challenges that couples face throughout the seasons of their lives, “it always comes back to how both people are showing up to the relationship,” says Hilary.

Networking, whether you love it or hate it, there is always room for improvement in the way we approach an event. And, just like an exam, the more prepared you are the more confident you’ll feel.
This week on Inside the Women of Denver we tackle the top 3 networking mistakes that people make and how these can be avoided. Networking expert Penny Brenden, owner of The Connecting Experts, shares her tips on how to work the room and exit with your goals achieved.
The first mistake being that you show up with no goals at all. You just show up. Penny explains that you must show up with intention, having done some research and put some thought into who it is you want to meet.
Second is the tendency toward verbal vomit. Rather than planning you message you spout out all about your business without thinking strategically about what it is you want to say first. The trick is to work your message into the conversation rather than recite your elevator speech.
Finally, asking the question “What do you do?”. Remember, it’s a conversation. Penny suggests asking something more like, “ Is this your first time here?”

On this episode of Inside the Women of Denver we interviewed Teena Evert, LOVE Success Mentor of Ignite Love Now. As a mentor, Teena shows women how to shift their destructive relationship patterns and create a love life that supports the best version of themselves.
Teena explains to us how she uses the feminine and masculine to help women find balance within their love and professional lives. She explains the conflicts that successful women experience while trying to be it all - be superwoman. She explains how the drive to be successful often requires the use of our masculine energies but these qualities are transferred to the home life it can cause conflict with partners.
Her methods require much self exploration in order to find love that supports an individuals' true self and she explores the answers to two key questions:
How do I find fulfillment? This question is one explored in many aspects of our lives and Teena’s process helps women first to find themselves. She helps women to gather the pieces of themselves they lost along the way and learn that their true selves are worthy of love.
How do I want to feel? Through really questioning this, women can discover what is really important to them in a relationship and find a partner that supports this vision. It is a process of self-discovery which helps women let go of pre-conceived ideas.
