Grief as a process of life Dec 06, 2021

I loved hearing Inez’s story - it was real, honest, hope-filled, and such a journey! One of the things that really struck me is how grief was not the end of Inez’s journey but the beginning of a new one. She lost so much in a day - her career, her second family, a life plan, and that...

The Power of Words Nov 29, 2021

Inez’s story is one that I will never forget. I was mesmerized as she was talking and describing her journey to where she is now. It was such a windy road and a LONG journey to get where she is today. This one part of her story really struck me hard. She was talking about her first...

Passion that energizes your business Nov 22, 2021

Scarcity mindset - it's a thing! I know what it feels like as a business to say yes just because you are afraid to say no...What if another client doesn't come along? What if another company gets the gig? What if I regret this ‘no” later? All of these feelings are valid - and pass...

Boundaries in Life and Business Nov 15, 2021

Boundaries feel like a 4 letter word sometimes - especially as someone who is a people pleaser. My very first boundary that I struggled to make, but successfully held tight to, was with my parents when I was 19 years old. It wasn’t made because they were being terrible parents- rather it...

Chasing the Journey not the Outcome Nov 08, 2021

 I think it's being stuck in the river and it's just taking you like where it's going, but she did mention that. She said especially about business, and I think having a very entrepreneurial mindset, that it is not about chasing the outcome. It's about chasing the build

This was such a fun...

Defining Success Nov 01, 2021

This week is one of our longest recordings and honestly the time just flew by! Jess was so wonderful to talk to and she left me really thinking and noodling on things for days after. The one thing she said that really stuck hard and really had me contemplating was when she was talking about how...

Taking the shame out of failure Oct 25, 2021

There were so many great takeaways from our interview with Larry- but none has stuck with me quite like this one. Failure is just an unsuccessful attempt. I can’t even tell you how much my mind was blown when I heard this! It was straight up a light bulb moment.

For me, failure has always...

Ridiculous Personal Goals Oct 18, 2021

Is having a ridiculous goal really ridiculous? Even when we were talking this through - I could not conceive of a goal that I would deem ridiculous enough to not work toward! We have interviewed many people and benchmarks and goals are a reoccurring theme - from getting a purse you have been...

Are you a doormat? Oct 11, 2021

I am so proud of the fact that my daughter, especially sees me pursuing what it is that I want to do. What it is that I need to do, whether that's like going to a conference or going on vacation, or like taking time for myself or pursuing something that I love cause I don't want for her to...

Throw back those damn lemons Oct 04, 2021

 

I remember when Beth said this in the interview and I felt an immediate jolt. I have felt this exact feeling -that life was happening TO me and not FOR me more times than I would like to admit. It was these times where I wasn’t an active participant in my life and felt personally...

When do you know it is time to build a team? Sep 27, 2021

I love that term “Scope for Imagination” because I think it is so necessary in attaining a fulfilling and meaningful life. Every entrepreneurial journey begins in someone's imagination and I think somewhere along the way all of the ins and outs of running a business narrows your scope...

Do you have someone to sort your socks? Sep 20, 2021

I know I said in the episode that I don’t need help but spoiler alert - I actually do. After listening back to our interview with Randi I couldn’t help but wonder why do we value self-sufficiency above all else? For years I wore this as a badge of honor and in reality there is no one...
