You’re not in this alone. My journey is yours and yours is mine. That’s why I’m sharing with you my stories, strategies, and best tips to help you rise.

Inner circles of successful women on the rise

This week I’m focused on one thing and one thing only. Empowering women to rise by helping one another! Did you know that a recent study from Northwestern University showed that women with an inner circle of other successful women were more likely to earn more money and have higher …

Ever feel like a “diversity add” on a pitch?

If you’re a woman or minority, you’ve probably been added to a pitch team at the last minute. Whether expressly stated, you know you’ve been brought in as the “diversity add.” While you might be grateful for the opportunity, it’s difficult to stand out and shine when you’re given less …

The fear of success

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 …

What it’s really like to start a business

Everyone said I was crazy when I walked away from my firm and started my own company in late 2014. And, I probably was… but I’ve not once regretted my decision. Over the past two years, I’ve covered all kinds of topics on my Hustle & Flow podcast, but I’ve …

What a week!

Last week was amazing! Over 600 attorneys participated in the annual Get It Done Challenge – a week dedicated to spring cleaning our crazy to-do lists and getting a reset for the second quarter. There were so many breakthroughs and success stories from last week that I wanted to make …

A lesson I wish I’d learned much earlier

Here’s something you may not know about me… I used to be a super reactive hothead. Even when I managed my emotions in front of others, it still created needless internal drama and turmoil for me. It wasn’t until my breakdown (aka spiritual awakening), as Brene Brown would say, that …

Chief troublemaker

I’ve been keeping this secret for so long that I can’t believe I’m finally able to share. When I first learned of The Female Quotient a few years ago, I quickly wanted to learn more about the woman behind the company. Her story was absolutely awe-inspiring to me and she …
