Do You Have a Mean Girl in Your Life?

You’re smarter than her, so why’s she still around?

The Mean Girl . . . oh, she’s a devil. Deceitful, sneaky, conniving, jealous, a little sassy, and a big talker. You know the one.

When she’s all up in your face, you just can’t seem to shake her. She knows just when to show up–when you’re down and out or when you’re about to go for something big or change an old pattern. She loves to ask the question in her snarky fashion, “Why are you doing that? Are you sure you want to do that, you might get hurt, look stupid, fail, etc, etc?”

Look, what it all boils down to is that we all want to be seen and heard. All of us. In our relationship with our spouses, our parents, our bosses. We want to be noticed, cared about, to be appreciated, and/or be acknowledged.

This includes the three identities within us: Your Mean Girl (aka your ego, aka your gremlin), your Inner Child, and your Wise, Older Woman. And it’s up to...

You Must Use This Tool If You Want to Grow Your Business, Income, and Life

As of this month, I’ve been meditating for 20 minutes a day for seven years. It’s the most important thing I’ve done in my life to increase my happiness, fulfillment, and income.

Meditation’s made me a different person. A better person.

There’s a saying,

“You should sit in meditation for 20 minutes a day. Unless you’re too busy (insert: stressed, nervous, or anxious), then you should sit for an hour.”

If you know you’re a worrier or future-oriented person, trying some form of getting into the present moment is a proven way to reduce that stress. Meditation’s a great option, and so is dance, EFT, breathing techniques, exercising (e.g. running, walking). It doesn’t have to look like sitting on a meditation cushion cross-legged with forefinger and thumb touching.

And I know not everyone has 20 minutes–let alone an hour–but these days with everything going on we HAVE to find a way to go inward...

Your Need for Safety vs. Your Need for Growth

This world right now is asking–no, BEGGING us to show up–show up in ways that we might not be used to or comfortable with. Showing up fully to ourselves, to our home life, to our businesses, to our communities.

For most of you, that’ll mean standing up to “your story.” The story that protects you and gives you a reference point. The story and/or stories that have created a safe place for you to retreat to–albeit maybe not the most powerful place, but safe. The story that says, “If you leave me, you’ll have to create new stories trusting yourself fully.”

Whoa . . . that’s big. It’s no wonder we don’t want to let go of our stories. They got us to this point.

Living in a Story

Recognizing that you’re living in a story of the way it was, the way it’s supposed to be, or the way it should be, is the only way to unlock the freedom you desire: freedom from money worries, freedom from internal struggles in...

Why Financial Well-Being Starts With Self-Care

I didn’t expect it to happen like this . . . but it was (and still is) a pivotal time in my finances.

Money was SUPPOSED to come to me through hard work, persistence, and hustle.

My coaching business was about a year-and-a-half old, and I was (and still am) coaching others on their money mindset and creating a healthy financial foundation that would (will) serve them for the rest of their lives (or at least this lifetime.) Money mindset is a set of beliefs and thoughts that shape your habits around money.

My personal experience, my training, my education, and my research all led me to this path. Yet, I was only a few steps ahead of the people who so courageously and willingly look at their money mindset and choose me as a guide through it–and I was only a few steps ahead of my clients on some level.

Until last summer, when I encountered a quantum leap around my finances . . . and it all started with a crack on my windshield.

A Crack in the Windshield

Be The Light: A Message Of Inspiration For The New Year

Be the Abundant Gift of Light

“Travel light, live light, spread the light, be the light.”

That’s what the tag at the end of the tea bag said. I let that settle in for a few moments, in which I felt, well, “light”.

Abundance to me feels light. Light in the sense that there is an ease about it — a fluidity to it. When I feel abundance, I feel peace. Abundance is more than plenty of luxuries. It can be found in all areas of life, and in this season of celebration and holiday, it’s easy to seek it out.

This season, you could say there is ample light, present in the form of candles on the menorah, brightly lit decorated houses and Christmas trees, or the light from a fireplace warming you on a cold day. Keeping your focus on these comforts reiterates the prosperous nature of our world.

So this holiday season, take it upon yourself to bask in all of the abundance available to you today, and know without a doubt, true wealth is...

Stressed About Money? Tune Into Your Body...Not Your Wallet

Mind, Body, and Spirit.

If you’ve been in the personal development scene for any length of time, you know that the Mind, Body, Spirit connection is huge. You can’t impact one of these elements without impacting the others. Being human means we’re made up of all three and all three are interrelated. Focusing on only one such element creates an imbalance, which holds us back from being our whole self.

Think about it: you could have the fittest body, eat the best of foods, and live a physically healthy lifestyle. But without “feeding the brain” abundant and compassionate thoughts, or creating space for your highest self to come forth (a.k.a. awareness in the present moment), the table is only built with one leg and will inevitably fall.

There is an inherent organizing power in the number three. Marketers understand this…
Three Musketeers.
Three Blind Mice.
A, B, C. 1st,2nd, 3rd.
Third time’s the charm.
Gold, Silver, Bronze.
Snap, Crackle, Pop!

How Self-Esteem Relates To Money: This Practice Will Save You And Your Bottom Line

One of the hardest obstacles to overcome in my personal coaching journey, as well as building my coaching business, is knowing my value. The value I place on myself, the value that I give to others, and the value of my workshops and programs.

When we truly discover what we bring to the table, it’s a very powerful place to live from. If we’re not taught how to value ourselves and our thoughts early on, we start to seek out our worth elsewhere. One such place is through money, a concept which can get very misconstrued.

Let’s Talk About You As A Valuable Commodity  

If you live in a world whereby money is your benchmark, then it’s likely your value is tied to actual dollars in the bank account and/or the accumulation of material items. While there’s nothing wrong with desiring things, check in with the intention behind it.

Does achieving a certain amount of revenue, each month or each year, make or break you? Does money dictate YOUR value?

The Smartest Investment You Should Make Year After Year

August is my annual time of reflection on what I have accomplished over the past 12 months, in addition to what I want to experience over the course of the next year.  Yes, I have my monthly and quarterly assessments, but August is my big one.  Not sure why.

It's not the first of the year of the beginning of Spring.  Maybe I still can relate to the kiddos starting their new year at school or maybe it's the noticeable change in the weather that comes here in Colorado.  Hot summer days turn to a hint of cooler days in August, and I start to turn inward for the Fall and Winter.  Or maybe it's because I quit my full-time job in August and started my full-time coaching business that same month.  Yeah, that feels about right.

In what ways do you take the time to reflect on your past 12 months and what you want your next 12 months to look like?

Apparently, it doesn't matter when in the sense of what time of year, as long as it happens.  As a solo...
