Shimmy LaRoux's Slow Burn

Shimmy LaRoux's Slow Burn

By Shimmy LaRoux

If there is one thing I've developed as a burlesque performer, it's an opinion (that and audacity). So what better way to share my thoughts than with a podcast?

Slow Burn is a podcast with the thoughts, musings, and tomfoolery from internationally award-winning showgirl and Playboy International Playmate Shimmy LaRoux!

I may use the art of the tease, but I won't make you wait!

4. Let's talk about goals...
Goals My 3 part plan for setting goals 1. What have you done already? Did you hit your goals from last year? Why/Why not? Also, take some time to celebrate your wins and try not to be so hard on yourself for goals you didn't hit.  2. What do you want to do...and WHY? Why is it important to add this as a goal? What do you want to get out of it?  3. What are you going to DO to hit that go? Be as specific as possible  Lather. Rinse. Repeat!

Taking 10 days off from shows taught me a lot about the power of rest. I talk about rest as resistance and 7 types of rest.  Links: The Nap Ministry: https://thenapministry.wordpress.com/ Po' Chop: https://www.itspochop.com/ 7 types of rest: https://lifehacker.com/the-7-types-of-rest-and-how-to-get-the-kind-you-need-1847223651 Be sure to let me know what you think!
