Book Description

On a scale from 1 to 10, how do you feel today?

Are you struggling to find the capacity you need to get through your day, and to meet work deadlines and social commitments? Are you anxious, overwhelmed, and creatively blocked? While you aren’t the only one who feels this way, you are the only one who can shift your mindset.

The ability to manage your energy and channel your emotions is the most important tool for unlocking greater resilience, drive, and joy in your life. Renowned corporate speaker, multi-sport athlete, and former celebrity trainer Jill Payne shows you how to Be a Dime, living a life that is the highest expression of yourself, from the inside out.

Drawing on her ten years of experience working with individuals and organizations, Payne’s program is grounded in maintaining body, focus, and dialogue, regardless of what is happening around you. How you move your body, what you choose to focus on, and the dialogue you use with yourself—all of these can be optimized to harness the power you already have within you. The workbook exercises included will help you find your way back to your true self: your dime self.

With exuberant compassion, Be a Dime will guide you in consciously choosing energy, allowing you to show up in your daily life on a higher channel, and as consistently close to 10 out of 10 as possible.



“From people in their early 20s to parents raising their kids, [Payne] has worked hard to ensure there are realistic approaches to energy and mood management for everyone”
