Whirlwind

Whirlwind

Last week I found myself sitting in a quiet room housed within a building that was created in 1875 alongside the river in a small town that feels like it had to be here when America first started.

I knew I had a deadline that I was already past to deliver the latest podcast episode and then it dawned on me that I did not bring my ‘podcast notebook’ with me. 

 

Shit. Now what?

Energy Exchange

Energy Exchange

More and more frequently I’ve found myself in conversations with various people from all different walks of life about things they’re noticing make them feel overly drained or zoned out.

 

One of my friends said “I always feel like I’m more dumb and a zombie after scrolling”. 

 

I went on to explain to her how normal that actually is (these days at least) and how it’s actually a massive exchange of energy that’s happening that we’re really not recognizing, therefore not making different choices OR giving that action the space it deserves without draining the life out of you.

Real Security

Real Security

Security. What does it really mean to you? Have you ever thought about it? Where does it come from? How do we create it? Or can we truly ever have it?

There are a lot of questions posed by this word that many have never taken the time to think about before. 

Sometimes we go through life grasping for things that make us feel just a little safer or we create defense mechanisms that we think give us security. Is that kind of safety and security actually a ruse? 

This topic was brought up to me recently in terms of what I help people build in the form of a solid foundation within themselves and their businesses. And man, was it a cool moment on seeing another layer to this practice. Continue reading “Real Security”

Break Yourself Free

Break Yourself Free

Mastering others is strength, mastering yourself is true power.
-Lao Tzo

I learned a few years ago that the moment I stopped trying to “force” anything with anyone else and focused on mastering myself and only myself that everything… shifted.

And I mean, everything.

Too many people go put themselves through slow torture their entire lives by being overly concerned with what others are doing, saying, or being. It’s not your job to master them. That’s their job. And I promise you that you’re not doing ANYONE a favor by putting that much time into “trying” to “help someone”. Continue reading “Break Yourself Free”

Show Up and Trust The Process

Show Up and Trust The Process

I was having a conversation with a client yesterday that said “I wish people would realize that investing in a coach doesn’t really cost you $2k a month, it makes you so more than that $2k. So it’s never like you’re ‘losing’ money or out another expense” and while I appreciate that sentiment and that absolute CAN be the case I had to remind her that unfortunately, that’s not always every person’s experience.

Expansion

Expansion

This girl had no idea what the “idea” she was toying with at that time could turn out to be.

The beginning of living life differently and accepting all of it.
The beginning of living life differently and accepting all of it.

Being whisked away to South Beach, staying in fancy hotels, having people wait on us at the beach, buying custom made hand-beaded dresses for fancy events, sitting poolside at one of the most expensive properties in Miami, eating amazing food every second possible.

I remember feeling like it was all surreal. Awesome, but surreal.

Little did I know that that was just the beginning. The beginning of living life differently and accepting all of it. Continue reading “Expansion”

Journaling

Journaling

Have you ever wondered how a journal can be so valuable? How a pen and paper can be something that some put on such a high pedestal that it is proclaimed as one of their most valuable tools?

Let’s flash back in time… this method has been being used by brilliant minds for as long as humans have been able to write. Documenting your thoughts, writing out your feelings, discovering new things about yourself or something you’re pondering by writing it down has provided us some of the best pieces of literature or education we have.

It can all start with a journal.

One of the most popular questions I’m asked is how to properly journal in a way that helps you.

Everyone says they don’t know what to write or feel silly so I decided to create not only a guide to why journaling works and how you can remove all of the stigmas around how it’s “supposed” to work so it can work for you but I also created a guide of prompts that you can download and use to help you when you’re feeling stuck.

The guide is provided in audio form, linked below. In the episode I break down what journaling really is, things to know, how to make time for it, and how you can make it best work for you.  I also created a free downloadable list of ideas for you to use to start your own journaling journey.

The prompts can be easily downloaded onto your phone or laptop to access anytime you’d like.

I’m excited to share my favorite tool with you in a different and more detailed way than ever before. I hope you love it!  Happy writing!! 


Let’s start a discussion here; Is journaling a tool that you’re already using in your life? What is your favorite way to use it? 

Greatest Gift

Greatest Gift

A while back I got a suggestion to record something talking about my biggest “ah-ha moment” and as I thought about it, a bunch of things popped into my head. As I was revisiting it one stuck out more than the others. 

Honestly, this has been a moment that birthed a thousand more and is something that I will forever be grateful for. 

Have you ever had one of those moments where you hear something and then something inside of you just clicks? That’s what this moment was.

I was listening to Gary Vee speak at his book launch for the #askgaryvee book and something he said sparked a curiosity in me that’s been very much alive ever since. Continue reading “Greatest Gift”

High Performers

High Performers

I remember being told that balance didn’t exist. That if I wanted to truly build something I just had to keep my head down and do the work.

 

Good thing I don’t always follow instructions because that would have never worked. When I did try to operate that way back when I was working a “day job”, it landed me in the hospital more times than one.


The truth is, craving that balance has led me down one of the best paths I could have imagined and as a result, I get to share it with other people so that they can have it too. Continue reading “High Performers”

What To Do When People Are Shitty

What To Do When People Are Shitty

What to do when people are shitty….

 

I was in the shower pondering on the way different people approach different situations and I thought about that question; What do you do when people are shitty to you?

 

Well, I feel like we all may have a go-to reaction that we’ve developed over the years when faced with people being sucky towards us but is that really the best option?
