Love Every Piece of Who You Are

Love Every Piece of Who You Are

“You can love her with everything you have and she still won’t belong to you. She will run wild with you, beside you with every step but let me tell you something about women who run with wolves, their fierce hearts don’t settle between walls and their instinct is stronger than upbringing. Love her wild or leave her there.”
-Nikki Rowe

I was recently told that photos like this probably “turns other women off” from wanting to work with me or learn from me or join forces with me in any way…

And I get that. Trust me, I do.

But at the same time, that’s the opposite of my purpose for the way I show up. I show up this way, being extremely true to everything I stand for and believe in AND everything thing that I am as a woman and an individual in hopes that people see a light into the opportunity to do the same.

My hope is that it’s seen as power and respected because truly, that is the point.

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”

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”

Actively Changing Hearts & Minds

Actively Changing Hearts & Minds

A woman who is actively changing hearts and minds.

That sounds much better than “influencer” if you ask me.

When I first was put in a position to be able to be heard, I took it seriously. When I first realized that I could teach and help people learn a position or approach something differently, I took it seriously.

It all started in other peoples businesses. It started with training people for support positions, creating processes that served the organization as a whole and then empowering people to take responsibility for their own actions and the roles they were playing.
