Need a short and sweet meditation pick-me-up to end your week? Excellent, then have I got something in store for you.

Often times I find money is a taboo topic, so let's break down that mental barrier, learn together, and walk confidently in the direction of our dreams. I've learned from personal experience that once you have a financial plan, any stress that was once associated with your finances starts to lift. Even if you're paying off debt, or saving an emergency fund, or working towards another big goal - just having a plan and im...

Have you ever started reading a book and had the realization that this is the exact book you needed to read? Well, I've been having that exact experience with Jen Sincero's You Are a Badass: How to Stop Doubting Your Greatness and Start Living an Awesome Life. I've listened to it on Audible many times, but I recently picked up a paperback copy and it's been speaking directly to my heart and soul. Sound dramatic? May...

Buckle up friends, because have I got an episode for you. This week I'm sharing all about some recent developments for our little family, including getting our home under contract to sell so that we can relocate to our dream hometown AND practice geoarbitrage at the same time. Talk about a win-win. Or a win-win-win-win-win…as the case may be!

If any of the resources mentioned in today's episode pique your interest, then you...

Have you ever read a book that fundamentally changed your life?

To say that Rachel Hollis has helped me pivot my life in the direction of my dreams would be a vast understatement. She’s inspired and motivated me to be audacious, without seeking approval or permission from anyone else. Just for the sake of it being in my heart and having the desire to see it through. So this week we’re diving into our first of many Book Reports (beca...

I don't know about you, but I've been feeling anxious lately given the season of life we collectively find ourselves in. When that happens, I find it's best to get still, come back to my breath, and meditate on my mantra, "I am here now." I always feel lighter after using it. I hope you too find it helpful.

When things get hard, what do you reach for to pull you through? To encourage you? To inspire, uplift, or motivate you? Well for me, I go to my personal mantra, over and over again. I tell myself, “I get to do this. I can do hard things.” Because there is strength and power in words and how you use them to speak to yourself. My mantra’s gotten me through 12 half marathons, 1 full marathon, 2 child births, launching my business, and...

At the heart of the Live By Design Podcast is the belief that you and you alone are responsible for your health and happiness. And because of this, you have to make yourself and your dreams a priority. Nobody else can do the thing for you that brings you joy. Nobody else can run the miles, take the spin class, dance it out, or do the meditation for you. One way that I make my well being a priority is through goal setting. And not j...

As someone who enjoys being on-the-go, learning to sit still long enough to meditate and experience all the benefits it holds was no small feat.
