There you are, working diligently to get something done, sticking to your commitment to pick up the tasks your coworkers or employees needed help with. But now it’s 7 p.m. on Friday, and you would rather be able to stop working and get the essential moment to recharge that you know you need. You ask yourself, “Why did I say yes to doing this?” 


If this feels familiar to you, here’s what I want you to know: Women have not been taught...

As a high-achieving woman, you have new and great ideas all the time. Inspiration visits you, excitement builds up and you start laying out every detail in your plan of action and what barriers you’ll have to work through. Well, all except one: doubt. 


Though doubt, on the surface, looks like a barrier, it’s actually the sign of a good idea. It’s a sign that you are stepping out of a smaller version of yourself and into a new opport...

Authenticity is the buzzword on social media in the business world right now. But there is a difference between authenticity and "polished vulnerability" or just plain oversharing.


A few months ago, Karlee noticed Lanna Brown shift the way she shows up on social media, and the immediate outpouring of support and engaged she created - connecting with people in meaningful ways and bolstering her community. She has rucked up t...

You’ve got a full plate for the week: meetings, emails, little fires to put extinguish at work, a family and a life to tend to. Maybe you’ve gotten caught up in the movement of life, and although you do plenty throughout each day, you still feel like there’s still so much more to do.


If this resonates with you, ask yourself this question: what’s one thing that you can do this week that would make everything else a little bit easier?

You’re working as hard as you can, trying to get everything possible done before someone or something else calls for your attention. When you first started your career, it felt essential to answer all those calls, to stretch yourself, and appear superhuman to your coworkers, clients, and boss.


Here’s the truth: Hustling can only get you so far. What worked then may not work for you now. In fact, it may hinder your ability to be prod...

Tell me if this sounds familiar: 


As you go about your workday, your phone is ringing and pinging constantly, someone in your household continuously interrupts your flow, or maybe you’re the go-to person for many people in your life. Your attention gets split in multiple directions, and by the end of the day, you’re left with the leftover crumbs of energy that you need to apply to the work that’s important to you. 


So, how can you sh...

You're working hard, putting in your time and energy and resources, day in and day out. Why aren't you experiencing the same results you'd like to be getting then? 


There's a myth in our society that good work is the same as hard work, but the truth is that this isn't always the case. At some point, the "I will do all the things" mentality that once helped spur some growth will become the same thing that ...

I bet you can think of at least 10 more things you'd like to get to this week, right?! And no matter how much you do, there is more left that still feels undone, or not where you'd like it to be.


High-achievers are great at being aware of the tasks or goals we want to accomplish next. But pro's learn that when we only focus on what isn't done yet, we sabotage ourselves, our energy levels and our best work.

Something is holding you back from doing your best work, but it’s not about your energy, ability to follow through, or experiencing brain fog. It’s about nourishment.  


Throughout history, women have been brainwashed into giving everything they have away, leaving them with nothing to invest in careers, health, or relationships. It’s time to shift that trajectory and discover how everyday rock stars like you can get professionally no...

There’s an outdated notion that there are different versions of ourselves: one that goes to work and one that has a personal life. However, in today’s business world, that mindset will hold you back from experiencing fulfillment and authenticity in your work and life. 


You were never meant to fit into a box. So far, corporate culture has not been able to contain the expansiveness of a woman fully showing up at work – but now this is...

You have a lot of people around you that you love, yet you can’t fully be yourself around them anymore.

If this is resonating with you, it’s likely that your group isn’t genuinely your group anymore. They don’t light...

People count on you, you are the stable shoulder for lots of folks on the job and off, so what happens when you are going through radical change? How do you continue to be a leader when your heart is heavy and your mind is somewhere else?

After 4 months of laying low, parts of the world are starting to open back up. While it seems like everyone around you is prepared to go back to normal, you might be feeling called to go inward. Maybe you’re starting to realize that during this time, you were showing up for everybody else, doing all the things, and only now are you feeling the call to re-energize and reground yourself.

"I crave a sense of spaciousness in my days." "I miss getting to create for the joy and nourishment of it." "How do I know what the right choice is here?" These are the kinds of questions that women who have been taught that taking care yourself is frivolous, brush up against. What if it's all too easy to push off what you need for tomorrow? And the next day. And the next.


When you find yourself in that p...

To all my perfectionist sisters out there: can we just pause for a moment, and acknowledge that you're living amidst a global pandemic, massive civil unrest, and there's a good chance your job and home life have changed significantly too. All this is happening at once, and yet you feel the need to get everything done, done right, and done right now, right?!


So here’s a question for you: what’s the rush when it comes to the l...

The message to "go big or go home" is rampant, outdated and unnecessary in our modern economy. It's the professionals that go deep, and intentional, rather than fancy and complicated, that are reaping the benefits of lasting professional growth in our new economy.

Someone just asked you to do something for them, and before you’ve even had the chance to think it through, you find yourself saying, “Sure! I’d love to!” . Then, when the time comes to actually do it, you feel resentment rising within yourself. Familiar? 


Saying “yes” is a knee-jerk reaction for many of us. Whether you say “yes” out of obligation, genuine excitement, or just muscle memory, that feeling of resentment or exhaustion t...
