It’s good to have desires.

It’s good to WANT more in life.

It’s important to have dreams and ambitions.

When you’re in pursuit of your dreams, you’ll revel in inspiration all around you. It feels powerful and exhilarating. 

If you find yourself looking at your vision board or your goals for the new year, and you feel like you’re far away from making the things you want a reality... there’s likely some dream busting going on.

Most of the time, you see me buzzing with possibility, energy and excitement. 

Every now and then, I stumble and fall. This journey is, after all, up and down along the way up. 

Toward the very end of 2022, I found myself in an unexpected funk. I was consumed with disappointment and allowing myself to have quite the ego tantrum.

The longer I sat with disappointment, the more I realized I was connecting to one particular negative ...

In today's episode, I’m sharing with you an interview I did with a woman who’s been part of Fiercely Empowered Mama since the beginning, when I was building it in real time.

She’s no stranger to this podcast. Ever since she first connected to me and this work, she’s taken it and run with it in so many ways.

I love our story of how we came to be.

I had posted about FEM in a local natural mama group, and Laurel reached out to me, a...

If you’re in my world, you know that this is the time of year when the doors are open to Fiercely Empowered Mama, the core offering of my work.

I’ve been doing some incredible interviews with current FEMs. It’s really quite miraculous what we’re able to do inside this container. The transformations of these women and their families are so profound.

So I wanted to share these stories of awakening to our power as the healers of our...

Toxicity is NOT just what we're exposed to. It’s what's stuck and stagnant in our system.

Many of the health problems that we live with are problems we can control by getting rid of what should be moving through our systems — not collecting them. This collection leads to autointoxication. 

I guarantee, after listening to this episode, you’ll understand how much our bowel health impacts our full health. You’ll see how quickly misse...

When you’re told that a project is going to take six months to a year, and it ends up being completed within the same day…

This is an example of what we call Collapsing Timelines.

And no matter how big or small the win, when you collapse a timeline, it feels miraculous… like you’re holding a magic wand.

In this episode, I share with you a simple, yet fun, example of how I unexpectedly collapsed a timeline by simply allowing my s...

When you feel like you're failing or, even worse, that you failed?

Let’s talk about this.

Here’s what I know to be true... 

When you make the decision to be all in with your soul’s purpose, your mission, your big (and scary) dream, the Universe will conspire to support you in making it happen in the most profound and unpredictable ways. 

You have to decide first and make that first move.

THEN. Things start to fall into place.

This is exactly what happened when I left my corporate career in 2018, said YES to building Fie...

Today’s podcast is inspired by all the posts I’ve been seeing online lately that are asking, “What should I do to boost my child’s immune system before they head back to school?”   And as you may have guessed, 99% of the time, the response they get back is a recommendation for elderberry syrup.   Don’t get me wrong, I love elderberry syrup. But it isn’t something I've ever done as a daily immune supporter for myself or my child....

In today's episode, I talk about getting a taste of my own medicine.

As you may know, “medicine” doesn’t always taste good. But if we allow it into our lives, there’s always something beneficial in it for us.

In fact, getting a taste of our own medicine can be one of the fastest ways to shift and evolve to even higher standards.
