7 years ago I posted the picture on the left as my “goal” physique. I wanted to be strong. I wanted to have curves. I wanted to look that way AND feel healthy.
I had zero idea how to get there.
I would try the regularly suggested methods of eating and all the “fad” ways to get the booty and abs… guess what? None of that worked. And I would go through cycles of consistency, not feel better, not get stronger, and in turn would get discouraged and then give up. Continue reading “Real Change”
I was reading an article this morning about fear… and honestly, fear is something I spend a lot of time paying attention to when it pops up because it has so much to tell us if we’re willing to listen.
So, this morning I decided to extend my morning practice into some meditation coloring. As I was filling in the swirls of the mandala, I let my thoughts flow freely. And after about 10 minutes of that I started to ask myself “What are you so scared of?”
Because I’ve been feeling the presence of fear lately, but it hasn’t been clear as to why or what it was that I’m scared of in my current situation. Continue reading “Overcoming Fear”
Someone just reminded me that it is Friday.
Honestly, other than knowing who’s calls are on which days I typically don’t pay any attention to the what day of the week it is.
In my world, my weekends are pretty similar to any other day. Granted, I don’t do calls on the weekend or take appointments but I’m still creating, still responding to emails and supporting my clients, and still building my brand.
To some of you that might sound terrible… you know to “work on the weekends” but here’s the thing I want you to understand… I’ve built my life this way on purpose. To where every day is amazing. Every day I get to spend my time doing what I love in one way or another. And I’ve designed it to where everything I choose to do each day fits directly into what I’m building. So basically, me living is me “working”. It’s all the same to me.
Spending time alone… strengthening mindset, resetting, and quieting so I can listen.
Visiting with family or friends… fueling my soul, gaining different perspectives, and keeping my heart happy and relationships balanced.
Writing about my life or my experiences… clearing my mind, fueling my soul, and spreading my message in the process.
Driving or flying anywhere… time to think. Clear my mind. Get creative. Record voice messages to myself, my team, my clients. Catch up on audio-books or podcasts.
Getting my hair done… time to catch up with an old friend (fuel for my soul), gain perspective through those conversations and have some time to be disconnected from my phone in the process. Plus the tangible finished product provides a very necessary part of my brand as well.

My favorite question (Well, one of them):
Q: What are you training for?
A: Life. I’m training for life.

“I used to think it was some extravagant thing, but now I realize it’s just your life.”
I was talking with a client earlier this week about how her lifestyle has been shifting. Her perspective has changed and she now looks at life very different than she used to. She made a note that everyone should always work with me for at least six months because she thought she was making breakthroughs before but this is a whole new level.
I explained that it’s like a muscle. Being able to pay attention enough to actually SEE purely is not something you can just turn on like a switch, it’s something you must work at, strengthen everyday, test, flex, grow. Continue reading “Transformation”
“Building an online business and brand online with nothing to start with, that’s a whole different breed”.
I get a lot of questions asking me how I started my business.
So I start going into how I saw a need for event promotions and staffing that was actually organized and I took it. But you see, that’s not the answer anyone is looking for… They want to know how I started my ONLINE business. Which makes sense because now, 95% of my income comes from my virtual business.

Friday night 1 am… just finishing the day.
I’m not one of those entrepreneurs who runs around saying “if you’re not up at 5 am you’re never going to be successful” or “the late night hustle and grind is a must if you want to win”.
I don’t believe you HAVE to do anything. In fact, I actually think you’ll be MORE successful if you’re getting enough sleep, working out, eating well, spending significant time not working and disconnected, etc…. basically you have to take care of yourself if you want to be able to build and maintain a successful business.
