When I talk with my mother clients I often hear about “mom guilt”. What I have learned from my own journey of processing “mom guilt” (that bubbles up after working long hours, travel, or having a career that I love) is this…Read More
You and your money are in a relationship. What kind of relationship do you have? Is it challenged, resistant, stubborn, fearful? Is it easy, supportive, trusting, expansive? Most of the time whats creates a challenged relationship is vagueness, unclear agreements, expectations, unconscious projections. Vagueness creates anxiety. So the antidote to vagueness is clarity. Clarity creates calm. Learn more…Read More
I take my clients through an exercise that is so simple, yet so transformative, and often times the first time we’ve ever felt truly heard and understood. It’s called having a loving conversation with yourself. In the article I take you through real life examples of how we talk harshly with ourselves and how we can shift into loving conversations.Read More
I discovered Emotional Freedom Technique (EFT) also known as Tapping, when I was leaving my consulting career and stepping into being a full time entrepreneur. To say that I was afraid during this transition would be an understatement. Feeling terrified would have been more accurate. Read here on how I used EFT to move through my deepest fears into inspiration and abundance.Read More
I receive a lot of questions from clients who are still working in a career or job that they don’t like, but haven’t full transitioned out of yet. This puts clients in an challenging position, that is similar to when you are still living with someone even after you’ve separated, divorced, or broken up. It is clear that there’s nothing left, but you are still there until you can find a new place for yourself. So, how do you stay happy, focused, and energetically protected in a job that you hate, do not enjoy doing, and could even be a toxic?Read More
Procrastination is one of the most discussed topics in coaching sessions. Where does it stem from? How can we move through?
As with most obstacles and challenges, we can often want to fix them. Instead, true, sustainable change and transformation from obstacles and challenges comes through understanding and healing the core issue. We can fix the challenge, or we can heal it. My method of coaching centers on healing.
Procrastination can stem from many sources, such as fear of failure, excessive perfectionism, low energy levels, and lack of focus. So, where does fear of failure and perfectionism come from? At the core is our inherent worth, shame, guilt, and lovability.Read More
Growth is not comfortable. If it was more people would be going to the gym, leaving that lifeless relationship, putting energy behind the business idea in their heart. Growing requires stretching to new levels. Growth asks us to go somewhere we haven’t gone before so the path is unknown, uncertain and can feel scary. Growth is also not linear so we can easily take two steps forward and two steps back before moving three steps forward. But growth is inevitable and is the only thing we can rely on. If we are not growing, we are dying.Read More
I am an introvert through and through. Regardless of what people might think or see on the outside, I was that child and adult until just recently, who got purple splotches when talking to strangers or speaking in front of a group. As a child I was too shy to talk to my teachers, extended aunts and uncles. Through my adulthood I pushed myself outside of my comfort zone but with a lot of resistance and awkward moments. So, for me to willingly register to have a booth at an expo and publically speak was short of a miracle.Read More
Something is bothering you. A challenging situation at work, your relationship isn’t working out the way you had hoped it would, your kids are testing your patience, you’re having trouble finding a job and money is tight. These are some of the challenges that my clients have struggled with this week alone. We all have challenges and things that disturb our peace. What matters more than fixing the problem, is looking at how we are relating to ourselves as we go through the issue.Read More
I see it over and over again from women I talk to at my circles and in discovery calls. I found myself in the same situation over and over again too. How do you hire a coach when your finances are limited? In my experience, and in a lot of the coaching books, when people make a choice to be ALL IN to life, this energetically propels you to move mountains, and life brings abundance ALL IN to you. Probably more so than you ever have in your life. This is where the magic happens. And yes, it is scary as hell. Probably the scariest investment you will ever make.Read More
I can't tell you how many times in the past I would have an idea, write it down, and then let it fade away in a journal, stashed in my drawer underneath sentimental cards. I usually have at least one person in every batch of new clients that has that notebook full of entrepreneurial ideas that they never take action to build. You feel me?
That is why I've been studying some of my most successful clients, and tracing my own times of rapid growth and stagnation. What have I found? Being decisive is key and in order to be decisive someone has to be connected to and trust themselves. This is a lot of the work I do as a coach with my clients. Teaching them to trust their gut and be decisive with it.Read More
Forgiveness is a hard concept to grasp. Especially when we feel justified in our resentment when someone has done something "wrong" or "bad" to us. However holding onto resentments has detrimental effects on our health, both physically and mentally.Read More
Do you ever find yourself saying this? If so, you're not alone. Usually what triggers us into saying this phrase is that we set an intention for something to happen, become attached to that intention happening exactly the way we envision it, and then become resentful when it doesn’t happen. Getting triggered and feeling like "it's not fair" is an awesome opportunity to practice your consciousness skills, your mindfulness tools, and your spiritual practices.Read More
I've seen entrepreneurial endeavors bring about the same inner chaos as other major life events (disease, divorce, death, addiction, job loss, new job, marriage, new baby and new home). I've seen women struggle through every step. I've seen women not have the funds in order to energetically allow her business to grow. I've seen women claim they cannot afford a coach because they so financially strapped. This kills me as a coach. Because I've been there myself.Read More
I have supported lots of individuals as they made this transition from employee to entrepreneur, and I have coached myself and received coaching through this transition. There are differences between the industries, the businesses and the personalities. But there are similarities in how we transition and build. Here are the integral points to keep in mind.Read More
I first learned about the "Owner versus Victim" mindset from Steve Chandler back in 2010. It was such a startling and simplified way to distinguish in the nuances of my language and where I was residing in my mindset, that was determining my actions. What I also learned from Steve Chandler's distinctions is that ownership versus victimhood can be applied to all areas of life, not just work, money or business.Read More
