Are you DOING the work, or GROWING your business? Aug 30, 2022

Brandee’s story is SO much like ours. It was almost like looking at our story in an alternate dimension. I really resonated with this part of her journey. The messy middle. I don’t think I have ever heard a more accurate description of this part of business. 

The messy middle is...

Searching for validation: with possessions, respect from others, and from within Jul 06, 2022

"We often talk about this, who you are as a boss and who you want on your team -- She says one of her pieces of advice was, getting the right people on your bus."

I felt this comment deeply! I have always said that a team is only as strong as the weakest link and if I am on that ...

When your ideas suck, and what's great about competitors' negative reviews Jun 14, 2022

One of the points that stuck out to me during our talk with Christie and our CWS afterward was the conversation around seeing your clients as people and not as transactions. When you see them as people first and begin that dialogue as person -to - person, reaching, selling, and serving those...

Evaluating your business ideas (even the dumb ones) Jun 08, 2022

I met Christie almost 4 years ago in Palm Springs at a conference. At the time, I was our marketing team and wandered into her session hoping to gain some clarity on how in the hell I was supposed to do this job I knew nothing about. The session was immensely helpful, but what I really loved was...

Can you be both a supermom and a badass entrepreneur? Jun 01, 2022

"When you've been in business for that long, I'm sure there were moments that were dicey and lean and hard, but you can look back and think that even though it felt like a low at that time - all things are working together to get you to where you're at."

It is such an honor to talk to someone who...

Work Life Balance is Bullshit Jun 01, 2022

"Here I am in the conference room trying to do a presentation and this little one is in the bathroom throwing up and I thought Oh My God, what am I doing? I should have canceled or rescheduled - I felt like that was the worst moment of me trying to incorporate my business and being a mom."

I...

Partnerships and self reflection Mar 07, 2022

I stand by these words. Being in a partnership has been one of the hardest parts of my life and one of the most rewarding. One of the things that makes it so hard is the fact that YOU (in my case I mean me) and whatever it is that you are going through, is a part of that deal. This is the case in...

Your Identity is not your Function Feb 21, 2022

As a high achieving person - this concept of being identified as your function really hit home. I can’t think of a time I had a label that was not defined by what I did. I am a boss, a sister, a mother, a wife, a wedding planner, a venue owner, an employer, a speaker, a consultant, a...

Overcoming Disability to Help Others Jan 17, 2022

So much inspiration - I was left in awe of John and all that he managed to accomplish given his circumstances. I especially loved his ability to relate that to any and everyone who may be going through something tough, and believe me, if you haven’t already been through a hard time, your...

Being Grateful and Overwhelmed Jan 10, 2022

Have you ever felt this? I mean really, truly, felt like your better option for a life and career is to just hang up the boss hat and work for someone else? 

If you haven’t ever - I would love to know what your secret is! I have said this exact thing more times than I count! When...

It's not failure, it's just an unsuccessful attempt Jan 03, 2022

Happy New Year! That is for those of you who have not heard it enough already! I love a new year and we are excited to start this year off with Abbie as our first 2022 podcast guest! I loved her energy (I will have what she's having) and even more than that - I loved her message, I think it fits...

2022 Goals Dec 13, 2021

What a year it has been! There have been a lot of highs and a lot of lows. Some of my most favorite memories and some memories I would like to never remember have come out of 2021. 

In the episode we reflect on the year we had and what we want to change for 2022. I have to admit that I...
