Realistic Tools For Growing Your Business

Does enjoyment ever cause you pain?

Nov 18, 2018

I have bad news, my friend: you don’t deserve to indulge this Thanksgiving.

You don’t deserve to indulge in worrying you’ll screw up the turkey or the punkin’ pie.

You don't deserve to indulge in comparing yourself to family, friends, or even the old you.  

You don’t deserve to indulge in too much: over-eating, over-drinking, over-giving.

Hell no, sister. You don’t deserve to indulge in that shit.

Tired of stuffing yourself with something that’ll make you feel like shit tomorrow - be it dessert or self-judgment?

We all do it: indulge in things...

3 Ways to Stay on Track this Holiday Season

Nov 11, 2018

My kid’s Halloween candy lasts him through January. I know. Ridic.

I usually love to steal his Reese’s Peanut Butter Cups…and weirdly, this year, I did NOT indulge in my yearly tradition!

I’m off sugar for an auto-immune eating protocol, which got me thinking about how I normally behave as we descend into the Holiday Season…

It’s that time of year for bullshitting ourselves that we deserve to indulge.

I mean, we all deserve some fricking time off from the rigidity and protocol we normally follow. Right?

This year, I want to come out on the other side of...

Is Indulgence A Dirty Word?

Nov 08, 2018

Today, I'm asking you to think about what you would do if you got the following invitation. What if I told you that you'd want an all-expense paid trip, where you would get to luxuriate in the indulgences of an onsite spa,  and a four-course dinner.

I mean, that's a hell of an invitation. Right?

You would totally take me up on it because it would be a fantastic escape for you. It would be 100% indulgent and it would feel amazing.

This month I'm focusing on this idea of indulging with my coaching clients, especially as we head into the holiday season in America.

Now indulge is...

The luxurious indulgence that may be causing you pain

Nov 04, 2018

Luxuriate in the indulgences of an on-site spa, personal sommelier, and four-course dinner.”

 

A hell of an invitation, right?!

Indulge” is a luxury word…its definition is to spoil, pamper, pander, coddle, humor, treat.

To allow oneself to enjoy the pleasure of.

This fascinating word often has a positive connotation, but I’m here to argue another point.

Why? Because as I make a comeback from poor health, I’m thinking about my indulgences:

 

I’m being totally indulgent & having a sundae.

Tonight, I plan to indulge a few...

How To Create More Time Every Day

Nov 01, 2018

Today, I have a question for you.

Have you ever said that you wanted something?
Like, really wanted it, but somehow you've never made it happen?

I mean, I bet you wake up in the morning thinking about this thing. It's also likely you go to bed shooting all over yourself because you didn't do anything about it today. If you've ever done this, guess what?

You're normal.

You're human, and you're in very good company.

My clients and I struggle with exactly this problem, and I call it cheating on ourselves. Why do I care if you're cheating on yourself? Well, I really want you to understand,...

What if what you’re doing no longer brings you joy or happiness?

Oct 31, 2018
 

What happens when the job that you have doesn’t quite fill you up anymore? What happens when you’re just feeling “meh” about things?

So many of my clients express to me a feeling of “meh” or that something isn’t right in their life. All the little things that happen day to day seem more frustrating than they used to and they feel discouraged. Wouldn’t it feel better to wake up every day wanting to shout “Yes!” at the thought of getting to work? Wouldn’t it be amazing to enjoy every moment of the day rather than figuring out...

Ever felt like where you are right now isn’t exactly where you need to be?  

 

Meet Julie: she wanted to leave her job and thought she wanted to be a health coach. But it didn’t feel right.

 

She played around with becoming a running coach. But that wasn’t filling the void.

 

One day, diving deeper into “What do I really want?”, she started talking about her Psoriatic Arthritis, explaining her auto-immune disease & telling me how she manages debilitating pain daily.


She’d apparently been suffering in silence for years! She was my...

When is a shitty situation the better choice to make?

Oct 23, 2018

Ever have a situation so heavy that it was…HOPELESS?

A client who’d been doing SO great messaged me! She’d met all her goals, managed her mindset, moved forward…

Then went back to her hard job. Which she mostly loves. And is good at. But she’s feeling a little oppressed by it. Disheartened & exhausted.

Here’s where her brain is: “There isn’t a moment where I’m not thinking or stressing about all my work-related responsibilities. It’s taking away from my personal & family joy.

“BUT I...

How to make history - even if you're a little late to the game

Oct 23, 2018

Jack sat at the table, incredibly agitated. He’d seen a man across the dining room of the restaurant and was upset by him.

The man, an older man – well into his 70s – was having a bottle of wine, eating alone.

His solitude made Jack sad, so he created a story that the man was awaiting a dinner partner. It quickly became clear that the gentleman was waiting for no one.

He’d taken himself to dinner.

This rubbed Jack’s soul the wrong way, and the more Jack watched the man, the more upset he got.

He wanted to connect with the man. Let...
