What to do if you’re working hard but not liking the results

The other day, I took all 3 of my kids to the park and plopped them in swings. And as I watched their varying degrees of success with swinging, I had to think of you (and me) and how we approach "working hard" and "being productive" and "trying to make things work." I...

There are only 2 types of fear. Here’s what you do about them…

Let's talk about 4 letter F-bombs, shall we? In this case, I'm talking about FEAR (though I do drop the other one you're thinking of quite regularly as well). People have lots of theories on fear: you have to push through it; it'll always be there; you have to learn...

How to get focused and feel good

Recently on the blog, I talked about one of the biggest lessons I've learned. About the importance of running towards what you DO want (as opposed to running away from what you DON'T want). (Did you see it? Need a refresher? Read it here.) We actually talked about...

101 Signs You May Need Money Mindset Help

Because sometimes it's hard to tell if something is right for you, here's a handy list of things that may mean your money mindset needs some tweaking (caveat: for many of these things, it may not mean anything "bad" if they're true for you, but if you're going down...

Are you hanging on TOO tight? {3 ways to let go}

The other day, my kids were fighting over a toy (a Shopkins… *insert collective sigh from all parents of girls between the ages of 3 and 9*). Big Girl had it first; Middling wanted it. And so, to prevent Middling from getting it, Big Girl clutched it in her hands....

You’re meant for something bigger, so why do you feel stuck?

"The most uncomfortable place to sit is on a fence" - Yours Truly on the podcast The Startup Sessions. Michael Knouse, the host of this show, recently told me this episode has been downloaded almost twice more than his average shows and sits at the top of the most...

Why you need to experiment more {and how}

Sometimes, experiments fail. I almost always write my blog posts (or any other writing) at the end of the day. What most people would consider the middle of the night. Today, I thought, "I wonder what happens if I write in the morning." No attachment to it. Just try...

You don’t have to overcomplicate showing up

I'm just gonna leave this here... What external results/relationships/things are you willing to let go of to just feel good right now? What areas of your life are easier and harder to detach from?...

When it’s hard to show up

According to Steven Pressfield, if you sit down in the same way, with the same intention, and show up to do the work, "the muse" (as he calls it) will (eventually) show up for you. Let's hope so. Because I just had to start a post with that line as I'm sitting here...

On consistency, shoulds, guilt, and forcing it

I just started a blog post, and I hated it. So I deleted the whole thing. I could feel the tinge of forcing it. Sitting down to write again because I did so yesterday, and so I "should" again tonight. Last night, after I hit publish on my first post in 14 months, I...

I haven’t published a post in 14 months – here’s why

I went through some insane growth last year. Personal growth. The kind of introspection that cracks you wide open, and you've been so used to it being dark that, even though you're grateful for the light, it's blinding and, quite frankly, annoying at first. I was...

Money Blocks, Mindsets, and Mantras

I’ve talked with hundreds of entrepreneurs, and you'd be amazed at how much they have in common when it comes to money. They admit to uneasy “why isn’t this working?!” thoughts while middle-of-the-night-staring-at-the-ceiling (sound familiar?). I've helped gobs...

Your worst case scenario really is not that bad

If you chronically give discounts/undercharging, are hesitant to make big moves in your business, are curious about how I finally left corporate, are any type wellness entrepreneur, or just need a bit o' courage for this entrepreneurship thing, listen to my podcast...

When You Want It All & You Want It NOW

If patience is a virtue, it's one I've only recently begun to embrace. Up until recently, I was a proud card-carrying, type-A lady - a bit high strung, and antsy to have everything done right away (and certainly "on time," whatever that means). I took this approach...

The First Step To Get Unstuck

By the time people talk to me about how stuck they are, they've usually tried a LOT of things to get unstuck. And usually, the first step most people try to get unstuck is by looking for answers "out there." If they're stuck in their business, they've tried learning...

Why You Feel Overwhelmed All The Time

Overwhelm has got to be one of the most prevalent and debilitating feelings a person can experience. It can range from bouncing between browser tabs, accomplishing only 10 seconds of work at a time, to full blown paralysis that results in copious Netflix-watching and...

What To Do When You Have Too Many Ideas

Once upon a time, I suffered from Too Many Ideas Syndrome. I had no idea what to do with all my ideas because they all seemed simultaneously fantastic and not-quite-right. And I hear from creatives, entrepreneurs, and other generally-rebellious types all the time that...
