Magic is about to occur but first …

You have to give up your addiction to certainty and your addiction to the stories that have gotten you here. You don’t actually have to “become” anything to be successful or happy. You actually need to UN-BECOME all the BS stories that you’ve boughten into over the years, or worse, have been told, and dig down deep and pull forth all the greatness that already lives inside of you. Most of us have NO idea how capable we are …

Be Authentically you.

The emotional pressure on maintaining a false exterior is an incredible burden to carry and a heavy load. You will always be hiding and repairing the cracks in the facade. How about instead of constant maintenance on the projection, you tune the projector to run on truth, an effortless energy resource? First step is to stop projecting perfection. Perfection is bullshit. My mentor @tonyrobbins taught me that People will always try to be perfect and that’s why …

Choosing vs being Chosen

I just got off a coaching call and we talked today about choosing vs being chosen. Whoa, that’s a tough one for a lot of people. Ever notice this pattern that rears its ugly head when it comes up? The one where our worth relies on someone choosing us? Whether it’s – friend, a job, a parent, or a partner… The mindset is “will I be good enough?” When we look at things through this lens …

What’s the good in this? A great question to ask when things don’t go as planned.

From the outside, we may look the same as our single friends (with no children), but the insides of our lives, minds and hearts are completely different. I’ve never really spoken openly about being a single mom because it came with a boatload of shame. I felt and still do feel responsible for walking away from my son’s father when my son was a newborn. I got pregnant on birth control at the age of …

New Year = New Habits

Happy New Year! Research shows that nearly 80% of us who make resolutions fail to keep them by Super Bowl Sunday. Whoa! That’s quite the stat. Why is that? There are two reasons why we’re so bad at reaching our goals: The first is that we bite off more than we can chew because we are eager for change, but lack a vision, a plan or clear goals. The second reason we fail to achieve success is …

From Addict to Entrepreneur

If you could sit down and talk to a younger version of me over coffee right now, you would find a girl that didn’t allow herself to fail. To mess up. To say the wrong thing.  To do the wrong thing. To wear the wrong thing. To look the wrong way. To admit her failures. To take chances. To post a picture that was unflattering. To admit to having flaws. To being HUMAN. My younger …

Do You Have Your Priorities Straight

How many dinners or bedtimes have you missed, how many evening have you watched your kids score goals through your partner’s text message instead of being there? When was the last time you left work on time and didn’t open up your phone or computer until the following morning? How many times have you said, “We’ll take that trip next year”? We work to live, right? Meaning we work to make money so that we …
