We had the good fortune of connecting with Emily Yager and we’ve shared our conversation below.

Hi Emily, how does your business help the community?
B10xB, which stands for Be Ten Times Bolder, helps you to become a ten times bolder, more confident, & badass version of your already awesome self. The B10xB Movement is an army of tens of thousands of incredibly talented, bold, fearless, decisive risk takers & leaders, just like you.

You see, instinctually, our brains are hardwired to stay in our comfort zone, & we were hardwired like this to live in the wild. In modern-day society, this doesn’t help us; it actually hurts us. B10xB helps you reprogram your mind, or in other words, we take the patterns of thought that don’t serve you, & we help you rewire your brain so that you link pain to making the weaker choice, & pleasure to making the bolder choice.

Throughout my journey in the entertainment industry as a model & in life in general, I discovered most of our “problems” we face lie within the fact that we don’t feel confident in ourselves. This can manifest in a multitude of ways, whether we’re facing a big decision, taking a bold step in going after our dream life, or making that first move to talk to someone that we find attractive or that we believe could hold a great opportunity for us in business or even in friendship. The point being, everything I’ve achieved in my life thus far is because I chose the bolder path, time & time again, even when it felt uncomfortable or scary. We all need to pay more attention to our inner voice. Most times it comes in a whisper, & then we must at once, boldly & confidently take action in that direction our inner voice leads us.

What seemed like a lifetime ago, I struggled with depression, anxiety, ADHD, doubt, & a lot of restlessness in my life based on what I thought “I should” be doing, even though it appeared I was “crushing it” on the outside. Through working on my mindset day after day, spending thousands of dollars on coaching & hypnosis therapy, & investing almost 2,000 hours into personal development on my journey so far, I’ve been able to take the dream life I once imagined & watch it come true. My life continues to unfold in the most beautiful, ethereal way possible. The consistent theme? I’ve moved boldly & confidently in the direction of what I want in my mission, my relationships, wealth, & fulfillment.

In this past year, taking the bolder choice really kicked in for me when I had the decision to keep doing what I was doing with modeling, life coaching, & influencer partnerships, or to team up with my soulmate, the one & only bold, intrinsically inspiring & optimistic motivational speaker, Cesar L. Rodriguez. Now together, we spread The B10xB Message across the world & get to co-create this vision in its entirety. Looking back, going all in with B10xB is the best decision I ever made because the level of fulfillment I get out of serving the community in such a way is invaluable.

So why am I so convicted by this message? Because I want to EMPOWER you. I want you to know that you too, can create the life of your dreams, & your vivid picture of achieving your goals will continue to unfold steadily if you make the choice at the start of each new day to live with boldness, confidence, & know in your soul, that YOU are what the world needs. You are special, & you have an incredible gift, even if you haven’t discovered it yet. To get there, push the limit. Let it be scary, yet carry this empowering perception of yourself through everything, & you will succeed, no matter what.

I am 100% confident that if everyone on this planet immersed themselves into becoming ten times bolder, spent more time caring about the way they feel, & did what feels good to them regardless of what society or their friends or family say, then this world could join together in a force like we’ve never seen before.

This is what the world needs right now. If you want to get plugged in to our community, send me or Cesar a DM on Instagram for the fastest response time. We’d love to hear from you, & as always, live life in the bolder zone baby!

Alright, so for those in our community who might not be familiar with your business, can you tell us more?
I’m most excited to spread The Be Ten Times Bolder message globally & to continue transforming the quality of people’s lives. B10xB is one of a kind because while we have coaching & training at the core of The Movement, we also have a clothing line & a way for other ambitious, passionate go-getters to join our community of like-minded individuals. You’re part of a family when you come under our wings. We have an incredibly diverse army of people who have united in one way, through sharing how being ten times bolder has changed their lives. When there are hundreds of conscious creators unified in the same philosophy, & all are living as heightened versions of themselves, this collective energy can move worlds.

I’ve gotten to where I am today professionally by fearlessly taking the bolder path, no matter what. While the bold path requires real growth & there’s no “get rich quick scheme” for authentic, lasting wisdom & wealth in your mind, body, & spirit, the richness there is in this journey on the bold path far outweighs the construct of time it takes to hit “checkpoints” of outer success.

It’s astounding to witness the person I’ve become in a couple of years just from committing myself to the growth process & doing whatever it takes to create what I see in my mind. Now that you know about B10xB, you’ll want to show up consistently as a ten times bolder & more confident version of yourself. You’ll feel compelled to tell others about The Movement because once you’ve established a track record of showing up as the bolder & more confident you, you’ll have a unique journey to share. Whether The B10xB Message has changed your life in business, your health, your mindset, or your relationships, your journey is celebrated in this family.

If you had a friend visiting you, what are some of the local spots you’d want to take them around to?
A visit to Wilmington definitely calls for chilling at the beach! Need I say more? You can go boating, jet skiing, wake surfing, swimming, or simply just enjoy the sun & read a book. There’s also a lively walking & biking loop around the beach that looks over the harbor, so getting in some exercise here is quite enjoyable too.

Cesar & I have been plant based for 2 years now, so I mostly do our cooking in house, however hitting up a couple of the vegan friendly spots out of the slew around Wilmington is on the agenda. Here are the go-to spots: Sealevel City Vegan Diner for a killer veggie burger, Adapt Kitchen & Juice Bar for an Açaí Bowl along the beach, Cafe del Mar for a PBJ smoothie which legit tastes better than a PBJ (Yeah, I know, huge claim but true), & The Bento Box for some plant-based sushi.

Honestly, I have a passion for cooking delicious, healthy vegan foods, so my best friend would get spoiled Four Seasons Resort style with my homemade smoothies, juices, & plant-based pasta, pizza, sandwiches, & burgers. I always joke if I could go on vacation anywhere, it would be my own house.

The pandemic has changed the night life & party culture here to a degree, but really anyone you meet in Wilmington is super chill & really cool. We have an amazing group of people in the community. Everyone is moving & shaking here in their own unique way & you can find them just about anywhere out & about. All you have to do is take an interest, drum up conversation, & there you probably have your new next best friend, & a reason to keep coming back to the coolest beach town there is (Another bold claim, but what else would you expect from the First Lady of the Be Ten Times Bolder Movement).

Who else deserves some credit and recognition?
While I truly believe that each of us are shaped by every experience & individual we meet in our life, maybe once in our lifetime, we meet one person that changes everything for us quickly, drastically, & dramatically. This happened for me in October 2019 when I met my soulmate, Cesar L. Rodriguez.

I got hired to be a very successful executive’s exclusive photographer at an event in Miami, & Cesar happened to be the keynote motivational speaker at this event. When he was on stage moving with all his swagger & a voice syrupy smooth with just the right amount of rasp, he began talking about the movement he started called B10xB.

You saw everyone on stage decked out in B10xB apparel, & he began teaching the captivated audience on how to become a ten times bolder, more confident, & badass version of themselves. From the moment I saw his elevated energy, bold mindset, & enthusiasm for life, I knew I wanted a one-way ticket to wherever he was going.

Once I secured the catch of a century & we started creating together, I saw how people would send Cesar messages saying, “You have changed my life” or “Your videos & teachings have helped me through some of the darkest times in my life.”

In one swift moment, I boldly stated, “That’s it, I want to build this movement FULL FORCE & add my own flair to changing how people see themselves.”

I knew I wanted to entrench every part of my being into growing & learning everything I need to know so we can change lives & spread the message of this B10xB Movement to all nations. I’ve been 100% committed & all in with B10xB since December 2019, so with that being said, Cesar L. Rodriguez has earned my shoutout. He’s the founder of The B10xB Movement; A modern-day philosopher with the smoothness & swagger of a rapper; A true born leader; The smartest & most personally developed person I know. Most of all, he’s the one who loves me unconditionally, mentors me, pushes me to grow, & sees me for who I am.

All the stuff you read about in the fairy tales isn’t made up. It’s true, because I’m living it right now. I feel honored to get the chance to experience this once in a lifetime multi-dimensional love & partnership. We work, we play, we create, we experience, & we grow together. Cesar, thank you for all that you are from the bottom of my heart.
