How I Decide What to Put In My Boxes | The Bianca Jade Quarterly Box

I get this question a lot: How do you decide what to put in your subscription boxes?  Well, it's easy! I simply put the things I absolutely love inside each mailing. Buuuuuuuut, each individual item selected also has to be relevant to industry trends and achieving physical results. I test EVERYTHING on myself first, research the item profusely and determine whether it is something that will enhance the lives of my subscribers but also immediately win them over as they're opening the box. I want them to come to expect great surprises and not be able to contain their excitment and curiosity from the minute the box is delivered. So, even though it's easy...it's also very hard. It's the reason why my team takes 3 months to plan and design each mailing. Just figuring out the theme of the box can take a while, too, because I want to come up with something that will resonate with my subscribers. I realize that it's a box based on the things I personally love and use but I...

My Road Trip with Ford

The Fall of 2015, I had the most amazing time road tripping throughout the Tri-State area with Ford Motors in a 2015 Ford Escape. We filmed all my fit adventures while on the road and gave away road trips and incredible lease deals to people who entered the #WhereToNow sweepstakes. The concept of the beautifully captured campaign was that an exciting adventure could be as close as your backyard. You don't have to travel far-away to experience something new, healthy and active. We often take for granted the wonderful parks and historical sights within the region we live in. These are great places to work out and find inspiration. So why not make a day trip of it? The #WhereToNow campaign is no longer viewable on YouTube or TV (my road trip was all over the news!) as it came to an end in December 2015. But please check out these 15-second mini-clips and let me know what you think. What kind of fit road trips have you been on lately and what tips do you have to share?...

The Juggling Act

My life is anything but normal. 8 years ago I left a career in corporate advertising to pursue my dream of reporting on health & fitness. I ended up creating a brand, launching Mizzfit.com and becoming an entrepreneur and TV host.  It’s crazy where your passion can take you if you let it. Mine landed me a huge campaign with Ford Motors! I refer to my life as a juggling act because there are so many facets of what I do that need to be in constant motion. I have what seems like a billion projects going on at once, and if I ignore one of them—well, you know what happens—the balls, the chainsaws and flaming sticks come toppling down on you and scatter. It’s risky business juggling a lot in your life, but for me personally, I live for the thrill! To keep everything afloat, balance is a necessity. I strive for it because as much as I love work, I want to make time for other things too. Like walking my dogs—a job in and of itself with how they tangle me...

Why You Should Always Ask Yourself #WhereToNow?

I went on a gorgeous road trip in a 2015 Ford Escape with Tri-State Ford to celebrate the “Where To Now” sweepstakes. I made some amazing stops—this one was my favorite—and had a lot of time to think along the way. I kept thinking about how unexpected my life path has been. I’ve worked really hard to get where I am, but if you had asked me years ago whether I’d be in the driver’s seat of my own business and reporting on women’s health, I’d think you were nuts. Life is unpredictable and you could end up anywhere. But that doesn’t mean you can’t look ahead a little and put your dreams into play. If there’s one thing I know it’s that... adventure, opportunity, love and fulfillment don’t just come knockin’ at your door. You have to go out and find them. You essentially have to ask yourself what’s next in my life…what road will I take and where do I hope it will lead me? If you’re not asking yourself these questions, how are you ever going to...

A Hidden Gem on my #WhereToNow Road Trip

I’m not one of those fitness girls that doesn’t eat. Healthy, yummy food is how I reward myself. On my road trip to fit with Tri-State Ford, I’m finding great places to nosh post-workout. I’m venturing to hidden gems in my 2015 Ford Escape to celebrate Tri-State Ford’s “Where To Now?” adventure and sweepstakes! Being on the road over the summer and fall has been magnificent. I’ve logged a lot of ME-time in my Ford Escape on my way to run in the woods HERE and to find balance HERE. Now, I’m looking forward to spending some quality time with a friend. The scenic route is a must as I think about all the things I have to catch my friend, RJ, up on. She and I are both self-made, independent women. So we talk about everything from relationships to business. We’re all about empowering each other. It’s easy to get lost in thought when you’re driving, which is why I’m relieved to have the 2015 Ford Escape’s SYNC 3 easy-to-use navigation system to keep...
