It’s so easy to look at what all of your friends and fellow business owners are doing and think – well crap, they’re way ahead of me. I’ll never get this right. But here are the facts: when someone else is killing it, that doesn’t stop you from doing the same. You may be on a different chapter of life than they are, but that doesn’t mean you should toss the whole thing in the fire. 

Today, I want you to take your powerback back call...

By the time that we're witnessing someone success, it can often be perceived that it came kind of out of nowhere, as if the success just fell into their lap. Oh, they're lucky. Oh, I wish I had what they had already. But here's the truth. We're only witnessing a chapter of their story. What we've missed are the encyclopedia sized chapters leading up to the climax of their life and career that we're now exper...

Earlier this week we talked to Jamie Elizabeth Thompson about the Power of Sexual Energy. In this episode she shared that creating a self-care routine can not only raise your vibration, but allow you to be still, connect with your source, and manifest innovative ideas that don’t typically come from logic. 

 

So how can you create your own self-care routine? Everyone’s needs are different, but here are a few ways that you can take you...

Let’s talk about sex, baby. I have been manifesting this episode for months!! 

The power that we hold within our bodies is one of our most resourceful yet underutilized tools. The power of sexual energy directly correlates back to your success, your freedom, and your livelihood. And when that energy isn’t released, it has to go somewhere – body pain, depression, anxiety, anger…  When you’re exhausted and burnout, it means that you’v...

Stop downplaying your wins. 

Somewhere along the way you were taught that anytime someone gives you a compliment or praises something that you’ve done, your response should be to tell them all the ways you’ve screwed up. You go right into how crappy the day is, or how much you paid for those shoes someone thinks are amazing. 

When you’re winning, allow yourself to win. That starts with believing that you’re worthy of it first and the...

Sharing your story with the world can seem underwhelmingly, kind of overwhelming. You're saying nobody wants to hear my story. Who's actually going to read it? What if they judge me or say something negative online? Being vulnerable and putting yourself out there takes gutsy off its own. But when you do, the power starts to unfold.

Today we're talking about the power of storytelling. And to do that, I have the most amazi...

There’s a lot of pressure to always be “ok.”

How are you doing? - “ok”

How is business? - “ok”

How’s the family? - “ok”

How many times have you responded with OK knowing damn well that everything was indeed NOT OK? Feeling sad or upset or defeated isn’t the same as having negative energy. The good vibes only movement has people feeling bad for feeling bad. Sometimes life is just hard and you’re not feeling like a unicorn shooting confe...

Building a business is much like building a house. Before you put on the roof, you must have walls. And to put up walls you need a foundation. But before you can even consider ANY of that, you must first have a plan – a blueprint.

When you started your biz, you were most likely winging it – and guess what? Most business owners are. But if you’re ready to increase your credibility, get in front of the RIGHT clients and start making m...

You’re thinking – which means you’re in the future that hasn’t happened or stuck in the past that’s already gone. Or you’re feeling, which means it’s hard for you to know right or wrong. Today I have a very special guest who’s talking all about that “secret” part of success that not many people dig into. It’s literally one word, and I can’t give it away here.

JB talks about finding calmness and clarity through ONE thing, and that’s ...

You’re feeling all kinds of emotions, but the world (like memes and that successful person you look up to) has told you to be strong; keep hustling; work, work, work. When did we take emotion out of leadership? You’re bottling so much up — of course you feel defeated.

This week you get to take your powerback by letting that shit out. Ugly cry. Break some glass. Yell. For heaven's sake, FEEL. Because when you feel, you empower yo...

It can be difficult to navigate your way through the storm. When it feels like everything is crumbling around you, you’re faced with a lot of decisions, or you just don’t have clarity on a situation, your body is going to go into overdrive – resulting in overthinking and underdoing.

The best way to take your powerback in the chaos is to clear the air, nix the grey areas and make a decision. Making a decision is the easiest way

You love being a mama but also love your career. And let me guess — you feel guilty. You also feel guilty for not having your dinner game on point, for missing an important game, for wanting to go out with your girlfriends, and for yelling when you’re mad or crying when you’re sad.

You’re not alone. Mom guilt is paralyzing and stops you dead in your tracks, regardless of how passionate you are about something. Today we’re gonna tal...

I’m a sucker for Frozen and in the recent movie, Anna gets hit with a lot of huge life changes in a short period of time. After she (and I) wiped her tears, she drops this: 

“You are lost, hope is gone
But you must go on
And do the next right thing”

Life comes at you fast and when the water seems to be filling in around you, it’s easy to get lost, overwhelmed, and shut down. But when we take a step back, Anna reminds us that we don’t h...

Posting meaningful content that speaks to your audience sounds like a great idea, but how the heck do you stay ahead of it?

Your news feed is a reflection of what you’re allowing in your life. Can you control what other people share? No. But can you control what regular information you allow in your life? Absolutely. 

By tolerating people or businesses that cause a negative reaction in your mind and body, you’re telling the universe that it’s ok to continue sending it. In other words, you get more of what you give. 

Instead, the next time that person pops...

Often when people lash out, have a strong opinion, or are judging who you are or what you’re doing, it’s a sign that they’re experiencing something of their own. When you recognize projection, you can hold a space for them to let out what they need to without having to absorb it for yourself. You can kindly thank them and energetically return it to them. Everyone’s opinion of you isn’t yours, it’s theirs.

“She thinks she’s all that.”
“Well, someone has a power trip.”
“Look at her, out there, AGAIN.”


Confidence is often associated with arrogance. When you’re at peace with yourself, people often think that you’re either faking it or have some weirdo potion that you drank to make you happy. Truth be told, confidence is one of the greatest gifts you can give yourself and the people around you.

Acknowledging and accepting the shadow side of yourself isn’t always easy. Sometimes this comes with facing things you’ve pushed to the back of the closet, bringing up old emotions, shame, fear, and anxiety. There is great power in owning your ugly bits though because when you claim them, no one else can call them ugly. Whatever you own can no longer own you and there’s great freedom in that.
