Woah, the entrepreneur life can be intense. Here’s how an analog old-school tool keeps me calm and clear in the driver’s seat.
When things get tough, when things get scary, it’s amazing what a little oxygen can do. Courage is as close as your next breath.
In which a noisy parrot totally breaks my concentration and then manages to teach me such a crucial business lesson.
As entrepreneurs we can get so used to Hustling that we just assume it’s just part of the work we’re engaged in. But what if it’s not? What if it’s just so much static on the line?
Pushback on price from a client? That’s a good thing. Because you are not for everyone.
There will come those times when you think, I can’t. When nothing goes according to plan, and you’re aghast and breathless and you think, Oh hell no. Do it anyway.
On the fourth anniversary of my business’s founding, I’m reminded to celebrate my wins, drink champagne, eat cake. :)
Now that I’m basically writing job descriptions for people to come on board and help me scale this biz, I realized → I need a job description, too. As CEO, what’s my responsibility? What’s yours?
How much faster could we get to our goal if we brought others on to help us, if we just traded dollars for Done?
When one’s pretty well-laid plans for 2018 go out the window in the very first month of the year, well, that’s a good thing.

How falling into a multi-day funk led me to what this year is really about for me. How the work feels matters, so why shouldn’t it feel exactly how you want?
Yeah, there’s a reason why this was the very first cruise I’d ever been on in my life. But guess what? Turns out it was just what I needed, though not in the way you’d expect.
The first two days of vacation, I realize now on Day 3, are really all about a gradual lowering of expectations, of standards, if you will, as you shift away from Doing and more into Being. This transition is not an easy one, and may be accompanied by feelings of irritation, restlessness, grumpiness, and a contradictory overwhelming desire to sleep.
What those questions you’re asked over and over again in your work, can do for you. Yes, they give you wings. So: use them. Fly.
How your business is right now is no big mystery. The good news? If your system leads to your results, then guess what you can do?
Getting away from my business for a three-day conference (even though it’s my favorite one ever) was not easy. But oh, the massive benefit of Pressing Pause and building a runway for big ideas to land.
I think we coach what we ourselves most want to learn. And here’s what doing the homework for the group course I’m leading taught me, again, about why your own story, your lived experience, is always and forever the right starting point in your work.
Pssst, what it’s really about? Connection, baby. Ease. Wisdom.
This has been such an intense year so far. Nine whole months of intense. And then last week happened: fire, devastation, ruin, loss. And inspiration to keep going, to keep going, no matter what you’re facing.
Getting Real about your numbers can be unpleasant. Believe me: I so know. In my own experience, what taking a hard look at my spending taught me about standing on my own two feet.
Is it really either/or? Are you either creative or good at business? What if the idea that it’s one or the other is a lie?
We get caught up thinking that the path to success is six-figures, seven-figures, but what if selling less means you actually earn more? Here’s a client who did just that.
Here’s your chance to unroll the red carpet / yellow brick road at your client’s feet. Where will the work with you take them?
Next up: getting clear yourself & being transparent with clients about HOW it works to work with you. Like, specifically: how do you want your clients to communicate with you, which tools do they need for greatest success?
Yessss, we continue with our creation of the Welcome Packet, to extend excellent service and transparency to our beloved clients. Starting with TIME. As in when can they have yours.
OMG, in which I receive the most awesome Welcome Packet from a new consultant I’m working with. Which in turn inspires this love letter to RULES.
No more tears is my policy, when it comes to working with people on their money, But
sometimes those tears are tears of joy. When a CEO is born.
Not all habits are created equal. Habitual anxiety about money, about the numbers in your business? That’s a habit you want to break. Stat.
Telling the truth about who you really are, injecting that into your business deeply, is scary, but oh-so essential. Here’s me showing you mine, coming all the way out as a Business Witch.
