Control what you can control.
One of the biggest lessons I’ve learned over the past few years was to stop letting shit that was out of my control upset me.
It’s not an easy switch to make but it’s one that will literally set you free.
You see, you can’t control other people’s actions so trying to will just leave you chasing your tail and frustrated…and probably super disappointed.
You also can’t control people’s reactions to what you do or what you say. But what you CAN control is your own reactions, your own actions. Continue reading “Control What You Can Control”
13 coaches hired and close to $90,000 spent.
Business, Lifestyle, Mindset, Nutrition, Life, & Energy Coaches. Intuitive healers. Energy readings. Personal Trainers. Money Mindset sessions. Meditation training.
I started investing in coaching before I was making any money online.
I had recently left my $60k a year, salaried position and had no backup plan.
I paid for my first coach with cash I was scraping together by doing random freelance work for body shops and small businesses in my area.
I hustled during the day to run their businesses, projects, and marketing, then would work on building my knowledge, skills, and expertise with the information I was learning from my coach in the evenings. Continue reading “Investing in Yourself”
The past few years I’ve spent the majority of my time alone.
A lot of it by choice, a lot of it simply because I refuse to “fill” my space just for the sake of filling it.
The past few summers it feels like I’m either spending the weekends traveling, surrounded by people, living the dream and feeling so full or I’m home, by myself, feeling full but also wishing someone was there.
Wishing might not be the right word. But honestly I’m not even sure any of this is going to make sense or even truly get my point across. I’ve been thinking about writing on the topic for a long time but could never find the words to really describe this strange state I find myself in a lot of the time.

“You are such an amazing example of a fierce, gentle leader”.
I received that comment in a message the other day and I am so in love with that statement.
You see, a few years ago I made a massive commitment to myself that I would never be fake. That I would show up fully as myself every single day, in every single way no matter what. Even though it’s hard sometimes, I made the commitment and it’s one I take extremely seriously.
A lot of times I will meet someone “in real life” that I’ve connected with online and they will tell me how I’m the exact same in person as I am online and I just smile because that is my point! And it’s always great to get confirmation that I am in fact coming across as authentic because I’m truly just being me. Continue reading “Leadership”
I remember a time when going to the gym was the last thing I ever wanted to do. When cancelling a training session was always an option when my day was going bad or I wasn’t feeling well.
Oh how things have changed…
Now, the worse the day, the worse I feel, the more I want to be in the gym. The more I want to put my headphones on, stare myself in the face, and prove to myself how strong I really am.
Today I feel like a zombie.
Pouring myself into my clients for over 16 hours this weekend drained me (and lit me up, but energy hangover like whoa).

“I know, I know… My life is so glamorous”…
I’ve caught myself saying this a few times lately, sort of poking fun at myself as I’m conducting my daily life… you know meal prepping or spending my holiday weekend working and organizing my house. Like this morning…it’s Memorial day and someone texted me asking, “What are you doing?” And I thought to myself as I was walking through the grocery store… “Man, my life is so glamorous” and I laughed out loud.

Guys… she doesn’t know unless you tell her. That thing you wish she would do or the fact that it makes you sad if she leaves the house and doesn’t kiss you, she doesn’t know. Open up your mouth and tell her. Say the words. Because I promise you, she doesn’t know.
Ladies… He can’t read your mind. He doesn’t know what you want. He doesn’t know that little thing he does makes you want to scream. He doesn’t know that you long for him to come up behind you and wrap his arms around you. Open your mouth and tell him. Tell him what you need, what you want, what you feel like you’re missing.
I speak to people every day who don’t feel fulfilled, who aren’t happy, or think their relationship is missing something, and let me tell you…it is. Continue reading “Communication”
