(0) Comments | Posted October 23, 2014 | 11:22 AM

I want to share something today that's really important to me, because I see it happening all the time. I'm going to talk in the context of business, but this is relevant for any area of your life you may consult the "experts" around.

Several years ago I became the...

When Your Friends and Family Don't Support You

(0) Comments | Posted October 2, 2014 | 4:40 PM

When we feel called to do or create something in our lives, it's not always going to align perfectly for the people we love. We may be called in a direction that goes against our family's belief system, makes our significant other uncomfortable, or causes us to butt heads with...

You Can Love Your Life, Even When It's Hard

"Life is fun."

This is a text I sent to my best friend last night, without sarcasm or an eye roll. I meant it, with my whole heart and soul. This isn't something I would have said a few years ago... I would have said "life is hard" or "life...

I Wasn't Supported for Years and Here's Why

(1) Comments | Posted September 17, 2014 | 7:11 PM

For the majority of my life I've proudly declared how independent I am. While being independent is something that will always be true of my personality, I recently had the very eye-opening realization that I'm so frustratingly independent because I believed I had to be most of my life.

I Used to Be a Liar

(0) Comments | Posted September 3, 2014 | 4:04 PM

Seriously, I lied all the time.

I lied every day about what I really desired, regardless of how big or small. I lied about who I was to my friends and family. I lied to my bosses and clients. I lied with every breath, word, and action, and especially with...

I Pulled Away From My Tribes (And Why You May Want To)

(1) Comments | Posted August 19, 2014 | 7:19 PM

At the end of last year I made the conscious decision to pull away from my communities. My mastermind tribe, entrepreneurial groups I was in, mentors, and even some of my fellow business building friends. I was feeling unhappy with my business and like it needed to better reflect who...

Be Seen, Loved, Appreciated and Valued for Who You Really Are

(1) Comments | Posted August 15, 2014 | 2:18 PM

For the majority of my life I felt like people didn't see me.

When I was younger and in school, it was feeling like I had no real friends (I really only had a few sporadically), like people were always more "into" or interested in everyone else, or like no...

There Is No One as Impressive as They Seem

(0) Comments | Posted August 6, 2014 | 11:54 AM

I'm super hard to impress, don't get star struck, and am not a fan girl. The reason is, I know a simple secret most other people don't realize: no one's as impressive as they seem.

That's not to say people don't do amazing and incredible things, or that they themselves...

I Learned a Lot From Being Three Months Behind on ALL My Bills

(0) Comments | Posted July 31, 2014 | 5:06 PM

Recently I was challenged by a commenter to share a story on my "happy blog" of a time when I was so behind on things for several months and didn't know what I was going to do. This person was in a very negative space and assumed I wouldn't have...

How to Take Bold, Brave and Imperfect Action

(0) Comments | Posted July 16, 2014 | 6:22 PM

I spent last weekend at Chris Guillebeau's World Domination Summit Event in Portland, OR and it was, as always, absolutely amazing. What I love about attending events with multiple speakers is that we all receive the individual messages we need to hear through ideas interwoven into each talk. Our minds...

When Life Feels Overwhelming and Impossible

(0) Comments | Posted July 9, 2014 | 1:00 PM

Someone I love has been going through a rough patch lately, and I want nothing more than to make it better for them. Being a coach and personal development writer, I noticed my desire to start coaching and "inspiring." Instead, I paused and thought back to my experiences going through...

"There are years that ask questions and years that answer." -- Zora Neale Hurston

I can't remember the first time I heard this quote, but I know it didn't resonate very much at the time. Today, however, it fully resonates and gives me pause. Today marks the start of...

What to Do When You Just Don't Feel Like You Fit In

(3) Comments | Posted June 24, 2014 | 2:33 PM

I've always felt different, like I was born in the wrong time period, or maybe even on the wrong planet. I just don't "fit" anywhere or with anyone. You'd likely never realize this if you spent any amount of time with me, but it's true.

When I was younger, I...

The Power of Meaning (and Applying It to What Really Matters)

(1) Comments | Posted June 18, 2014 | 11:08 PM

Do you ever stop and wonder why certain things matter to you? Why you do the things you do or work so hard for the things you work for? Do you ever question who decided something was meaningful, important, or stylish? Or do you assume there must be a reason...

4 Things You Need to Know to Become 'Fearless' in Your Life

(0) Comments | Posted June 11, 2014 | 6:57 PM

There's a huge myth around fear that I want to dispel today and it's that certain people are more fearless than others. I'm sure there are exceptions to this, but for the majority of seemingly fearless people, the correct term would be more like fear-filled.

I've done a lot of...

Start Wanting What You Really Want (and Stop Wanting What You Don't Want)

(0) Comments | Posted June 5, 2014 | 7:19 PM

There's something I've noticed lately that a lot of people do, myself included, that isn't in alignment with manifesting amazing things in our lives. Simply put, we act like we don't want what we really want.

For example, I've been training for my October half marathon for the last three...

Don't Miss the Signs

Change is tricky. Some people fear and resist it with all their might while others welcome it with open arms. Sometimes it just depends on what the change entails.

For big changes... like changing jobs or professions, deciding whether or not to stay in a relationship, or considering whether or...

What Has Left an Imprint on Your Soul?

(0) Comments | Posted May 16, 2014 | 1:49 PM

Towards the end of last year, I woke up feeling deeply tired. I'd gotten plenty of sleep. In fact, I'd had more than enough sleep in the last week. But I was tired... so very tired.

Being the introvert I am, I figured I just needed to "shut down" for...

"I'm just not the person I need to be to make it happen yet."

Sound familiar? You're talking about your big dreams or vision and what you want to accomplish in this life, but you stop yourself short with a phrase such as the one above. You believe you're not...
