Trying is Lying

with Irina Baranov

Hello, Bonjour, Hola, Good day, Dia Duit (that’s hello in irish). I’m feeling very international today. I’ve been getting emails from people all over the world saying how much they are enjoying the podcast and how it’s adding value to their lives. It’s so amazing to see you taking action, and implementing what we talk about on this show. So, keep it up, keep making change because life only get better when we do.

So, there’s a couple of exciting things to share with you today.

Have you heard of this new app called periscope for your phone? If not, check it out. It’s live video streaming. For example, I can turn on my phone and do a live video and you can watch it and ask questions or write comments. It’s really neat. I am now scoping (that’s what’s it called when you do a video), you can follow me and my handle is tanyafraserrhn. Once you follow me, anytime I’m doing a scope you’ll be notified. If you can’t watch the video live, you’ll have 24hrs to watch the replay. I’m thinking I’ll do monday motivation videos, maybe take you into my kitchen and cook, or do a workout, or maybe just do one of my rants. Again, you can follow me at tanyafraserrhn. Periscope, check it out, it’s so future.

I’ve been working on a very big project secretly for a while now. It’s one I’m so proud of, so excited to share with you. I’m creating The Cut the Crap membership club. What the What?? Yes. I am. Learn more.

What is the cut the crap membership club?

Well, firstly it’s going to be a fun place to hangout. It’s designed for you and me to inspire, motivate, push and give each other an arse kicking when we need it.

We all have dreams, goals and desires and we all have good intentions of completing those goals. But it’s hard to go it alone.

When we have someone to help us along the way, when we have a group of people going through the same thing, then we can hold each other accountable and achieve our goals with greater success.

This group is going to consist of support, I’m going to show you how to manage your time more efficiently, I’m going to help you create more balance in your life, be happy, find more energy, have more self-confidence, feel more empowered, strong and of course healthy.

You will get to work out with me through videos, you’ll get meal plans and recipes, I’ll teach you how to organize your kitchen. how to prep meals, we’ll cover many health topics, there will be live video q&a session and live hangouts with me and other experts in the industry and so much more.

I just have one favour to ask. visit at the bottom of the page there is a link to survey. if you fill this out this survey you’ll be helping me create this club for you. And if you complete it there is a thank you gift for you at the end. to thank you for your thoughts, insight and time. Because I appreciate you. is offering you a free audiobook of your choice and a free 30-day trial membership. Just go to and choose from over 180,000 audio programs – download a title free and start listening. It’s that easy.
