Brand Authority + Leadership

Yesterday I was flying across the country, back from one of my longest working holiday experiences - it got me thinking about how we claim our own independence. Where we’re at politically in the world, and particularly as women, we’re at a place for the first time in history where we can actually + truly redefine what freedom + sovereignty means to us. We’re coming to terms with our global history (HER-story ;) ), + rewriting the script. My own history is this. I’ve always been a free spirit. Growing up, my parents had us traveling regularly to our lakeside cottage + as a busy family of eight, we enjoyed road trips + the adventure of driving cross country to visit relatives every year. Then, as a young adult - after a serious + toxic long term relationship - I decided my healing could be found through embracing my independence + freedom. It took me to...

I dare you to show up 100% every single day in your biz for 7 days and watch how things shift. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Seriously, try it! ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Many confuse showing up 100% with our own indoctrinated judgement of working our arses off to the point of exhaustion. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ To me, having 100% daily commitment means: ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ✨ Choosing activities that will move you forward in the pursuit of your dreams ✨ Starting day off with meditation, journaling, yoga, running, petting your cat...

I was purging + rummaging through old photos yesterday and found this. My son was just born and my then photographer husband requested an impromptu pose to test a new innovative way to photograph people in the studio: digital! It was 1995 and it was a brand new invention + technology at the time where film was still being used in the industry. ie. you couldn’t see the photograph you’d just taken. I remember thinking that it was an amazing invention that was finally in the consumers hands! And the coincidence was I was also reinventing myself as the GIRL who I knew I was at the time vs the WOMAN I knew I had to be in order to be the mom I wanted to be for this beautiful boy. It was a pivotal time in my life that help me to gather strength for my next phase… being a single mama of...

For many years, I’ve been coaching entrepreneurs on how to keep up with staying true to who they are + who they’re becoming + how to be in alignment with their brand + biz goals. Because guess what? We personally change + grow + evolve just like our business. We’re the pioneers + creators of our business + personal brand so it’s a natural progression that we occasionally find ourselves at a crossroads, feeling called to pivot in another direction - either in a small or in a BIG way. Like all transitions, they can feel isolating, confusing + daunting - particularly if there’s any amount of internal doubt. And the longer we grapple with this results in some form of self-sabotage which can easily block our business success. In my (+ my clients) experience, getting the support needed to move through this reinvention/rebranding phase is critical. #notfearmongoring Whether it’s through a coach like myself or...

According to Forbes, women in the U.S. are starting businesses at twice the rate of men. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ When I read that today it inspired me to share a reminder that it’s not only ok for us as women to embrace ambition - if you’re an entrepreneur, it’s a requirement. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ And I actually don’t believe for a red hot second there’s anyone out there who ISN’T ambitious. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Nope. But it may feel that way to due to social conditioning. (and um.. nooo you’re not lazy) ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ After years of speaking directly to women entrepreneurs on their hearts desires, missions + dreams, I can say for certain it sure as heck isn’t the lack of ambition but rather the lack of belief in themselves that can often result in hesitation. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ This week I’ve had the pleasure of meeting with half a dozen ladies who have inspired me to a whole other level of mindset + unstoppable ambition within myself! ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Isn’t...
