It’s time to keep an open mind, suspend judgement, and hear me out as I pose the following question:

What would you do if your long-term partner wanted to open things up in the bedroom, and asked to bring in a “third” or play with another couple?

A three-way? Swinging? Opening things up? REALLY? Yes, indeed. These are all cage-rattling questions — straight from a viewer — that I take on in today’s Jacquie Straight Up. And, yes, things are going to get a bit steamier than usual on this week’s episode!

Dear Jacquie,

I have been in a relationship for seven years with a man I love. My partner has now expressed that he would like to spice things up in the bedroom, and wants to bring in a third, or maybe another couple.

DESIRE.

Now THAT can be a loaded topic. But the DESIRE I’m diving into today on Jacquie Straight Up is the type that is absolutely essential to your success.

The great author Napoleon Hill put it best:

“Desire is the starting point of all achievement. Not a hope. Not a wish. But a keen pulsating desire that transcends everything.”

WOW. I love that.

It’s truly incredible what you can accomplish when you have a BURNING DESIRE to make it happen. Just think about it — I’m sure you’ve experienced this to some degree in your own life. I know I certainly have. In fact, in today’s Jacquie Straight Up, I share with you one of my own BURNING DESIRES, one that was directly related to the photo-shoot I talked about during last week’s episode.

I was recently in LA for a photo shoot, surrounded by a team of incredible people who helped to make me feel so good, so sexy, and so inspired. It was all about the hair, the makeup, and the wardrobe…and then came the lights, the camera, and all the crazy action. Such fun!

But this week’s Jacquie Straight Up isn’t about me and all that glitz. It’s about the fact that during the shoot, it dawned on me that one of the most important things we can do for ourselves is to surround ourselves with people who bolster us, people who think positive, and people who believe in us.

My LA team was in my court; they were rooting for me; they supported me 100%.

This week on Jacquie Straight Up, there’s champagne, there’s excitement, and there’s some extra pizzazz…because I’m CELEBRATING!

I just received some great news, and I’d love for you to get into it with me!

As you’ll see in today’s episode, this news came EXACTLY at the time when I needed it most. I had been dealing with what seemed like an unending string of bad news, and I really needed a break. At the point when I felt like I just couldn’t take it anymore, I went out to my yard, lay on my back, and screamed out to the Universe:

“Give me a break! GIVE ME A F*CKING BREAK!”

I was angry. It was contrary to all the spiritual solutions that I have studied.

It’s July 3rd. Summer has arrived in full force. And I’m back in the brilliant Palm Springs sunshine.

As you can imagine, it’s hot here in the desert, and I’m escaping the intense heat in the best way I know how: IN THE POOL!

Yup, I’m broadcasting from in the water, live from my backyard. Woo-hoo!

I must admit, poolside blogging isn’t my typical modus operandi, and this is a first for me. But, you know what? As I’m sure you’ll be able to tell in today’s video, I enjoyed it!

There is always a first time for everything…and this is all part of becoming your own soul mate, and not being afraid to go against the grain or worrying about what others think.

Today’s Jacquie Straight Up is coming to you direct from the coastline of beautiful British Columbia, Canada. The place I called home for over 20 years (still do, truth be told!), I was back to visit my beloved family and friends, to take in the incredible scenery, and to indulge in BC’s truly amazing culinary delights.

British Columbia is stunningly beautiful, and there are few other places on earth where I feel so connected to nature.

Being connected to nature is so important. Why? Well, for one, when you are out in the wilderness, some cool things can happen!

In fact, while I was walking along a rocky beach one morning, appreciating all the beauty surrounding me, I felt compelled to share what had struck me while breathing in the clean air: my absolute favorite — and foolproof way — of dealing with dilemmas and finding inspiration.

Is it time to issue yourself a challenge? (And I mean a BIG one!)

This week’s video is inspired by a truly incredible man with a fantastic name: Deri ap John Llewellyn Davies. He’s a Welshman, a successful business man, dedicated family man, and adventurer extraordinaire. He’s also the author of the hugely inspiring book, Life’s Great Adventure.

The book blew me away! In it, Deri describes how he faced some of the greatest adventure challenges on earth, including scaling the earth’s highest peaks and completing the world’s toughest foot race, the legendary Marathon Des Sables: six back-to-back marathons across the Sahara desert. Yikes!

And here’s another cool part: Deri not only brings you into his world of epic adventure, but also inspires you to reconnect and rediscover your OWN adventure.

I bet that you, like me, deal with a bunch of fear that sometimes holds you back from really killing it in this life.

Maybe it’s fear of failure, success, change, criticism, or rejection — heck, there’s tons of stuff that scares us! Some rational, and some not so much.

In today’s Jacquie Straight Up, I share with you how I was spooked by one of my all-time biggest fears, just a few weeks ago while I was hiking. My heart just about jumped out of my chest! But it did cause me to start thinking about the power of fear, and prompted me to share my top three ways on how to effectively deal with it, and get on with a kick-ass life.

So I’m not an “arts and crafts” kinda girl, but this week, I’m about to go all “Martha Stewart” on you…but with a twist!

In today’s Jacquie Straight Up, I share with you my absolute favorite way to create your own VISION BOARD.

Why? Because vision boards rock. I love them. I use them. They, quite simply, WORK.

I’ve found that vision boards are incredible tools for manifesting your goals and dreams, and they help you create the life you want and deserve. Honestly, if you don’t have one in your life, now is the time!

If you have a computer, a printer, and a camera, then you’re good to go. Watch the video above and I’ll show you my simple and fun formula, one that I know will help move you closer to your kick-ass life.

OK. So in this week’s Jacquie Straight Up, I get down and dirty.

I’m outside, DRIPPING with sweat, and covered with dust.

I’m wearing zero makeup and my hair’s been stuffed into a straw hat. Truth be told, my outfit alone is enough to cause some of my fashionista friends apoplexy (although I’m probably the only one on the mountain in a Helen Kaminski hat and LV sunglasses)!

It’s HOT — over 30 degrees Celsius (86 degrees Fahrenheit) at eight in the morning — and I can barely catch my breath.

And with all the huffing and puffing going on in the desert heat, let’s face it — I’m not so fresh…probably not my sexist moment.

But you know what?
