Your online presence matters

Have you ever considered starting an online business? Or better leveraging online opportunities to market, sell, and systematize your services? When I started my company in 2014, I didn’t have a clue about online businesses. I had an idea as to what I wanted to do and how, but I …

Dressing for success

I have a love–hate relationship with fashion. I’ll be the first to admit that when I’m wearing an outfit that I love, it makes me feel great. But I also feel like it’s one more way for men and women to judge women and hold them to unrealistic standards. For …

Start practicing your power pose

I just finished a video call with one of my annual mastermind members and she showed me her BIG plans including an accompanying soundtrack – YES!!! These weren’t little plans. They were B-I-G. I was blown away. When she saw my jaw drop, she said, “This is your fault. This …

When I was at GALCON in April, a podcast listener shared with me some awesome news. She told me that she’s been using the Life & Law Planner™ and is now on track to reach her goals. Which is great, right? But then she shared that the thought of reaching …

Balancing ambition and motherhood

I’m not a mom. But I see those of you who are. Working nonstop. Wanting to be a badass boss and an amazing mother. Between logging hours at the office, school, and home, you hardly ever get a break. You put yourself last and rarely get a moment to yourself. …

Want to do summer camp with me?

Picture this… A fun-filled summer with endless sunshine, books on the beach, bottles of Prosecco, late-night laughter, a warm breeze, and business development. Ha! Okay, that last part might have thrown you for a loop but let me share why I think this summer is the PERFECT time for you …
