Goal setting is an important aspect of personal and professional development. It enables us to identify what we want to achieve and to develop a plan of action. But, while goal setting is beneficial, it can also present challenges. And if we intend to achieve our goals, it's important that we go into goal setting with our eyes open.

Why is goal setting important?

Goal setting provides direction. Without clear goals, we can feel ...

What is good? What is bad? How can we be sure? Does it matter? 

I'd like to make the argument that it doesn't, and that we shouldn't be so quick to assign a label of good or bad to any situation.

But that is not as easy as it sounds.  And don't get me wrong... I’m not on my high horse pretending I’m above this--I’m totally not. But it’s a place to aspire to and mindfully approach. Because the benefits wa...

The standard against which we measure what work should look like, how we must push ourselves until we have nothing left, how working all hours is the only way... it doesn't work for everyone.

As entrepreneurs, it's time to shed that old thing and look to a new way where well-being is the priority. Self-care is productive, and a surefire way to bring more success and vitality into our work.

This episode is a bit meta, because I am using the example of creating a lead magnet to illustrate my process of creating a workflow.  And since we go through the lead magnet process, you can download my lead magnet checklist on how to create a lead magnet, too! See what I did there? ;)

This episode is a result of several conversations I've had recently about the process of workflows, how important they can be, and h...

Have you ever felt stuck in a particular choice and wondered if it's too late to change direction? It's a common thing—thinking you are stuck, but the truth is that it's never too late to change direction and pursue something new. That's easy to say, though.

Change your life? Really? Um... yes!!! A slow practice is any activity that encourages you to slow down, focus on the present moment, and cultivate a sense of stillness and calm. The goal of a slow practice is to help you disconnect from the fast-paced demands of modern life and create more space for reflection and introspection.

There is so much noise out there about what we all "should" be doing in our business and in our life... but from where I am standing, it seems like we all could use a little less of that.

But where do we start? How do we know when and where to make a change?

We all have morning habits. Whether yours starts with an alarm clock, a pet who is tired of watching you sleep, children who need attention, or the gentle sunrise doing its thing, most of us begin the day by waking up and shuffling out of bed.

Once we are up, we tend to our personal care, maybe change out of our pajamas, maybe not, and then head out of our bedroom to face the world.

From here, anything goes, and that's where the...

Do you think we are either born with a skillset or not? How do you think about your business launches overall? What does your approach to new projects, failures, and your personal and professional development look like? How do you process the times when things aren't going so well? The mindsets that we adopt shape everything in our lives, which means we get to choose how we think, react, and grow.
