No way to sugarcoat it.
We consume a crap ton of content everyday.
The first few months of the year, I couldn't shake this idea that if I could just quiet some of the outside noise, I could maybe, just maybe, start showing up and sharing my truths in a more real, authentic, and powerful way.Read More
I’m a big believer in fate and live by the saying, “everything happens for a reason.” So I’m taking this hot mess of a week, turning it into some valuable lessons learned, and sharing the encouragement with you!
But First, Story Time
I took “the leap” and left my corporate job back in May of 201X. However, I transitioned right into part-time, seasonal work doing social media for a local small business.
Because the work was seasonal, I went through weeks and months where they needed a lot more help from me, so I’d be there all day, every day, which had me remembering what it’s like to b ein that hectic, pre-leap, side-hustle stage.
As you probably know from experience, it’s exhausting and mentally straining!Read More
Today's goal: to give you some major aha moments!
At the beginning of this year, I headed to NOLA for 3-days to attend the Rising Tide Society Leaders Retreat. I was expecting to eat some beignets, meet some cool people, and come home feeling a little more inspired.

My head was spinning — and clearer at the same time — after learning from incredible speakers and selfless leaders.
So, naturally, I wanted to share everything I learned with you.
Since you don't have all day, I compiled my top 5 aha moments / lessons learned for you.Read More

"I would love to have business besties, but I don't have anything to collaborate on right now."
This message showed up in my inbox one day and got me thinking...
Is there a preconceived notion in our online business world that the only reason we need business besties is to collaborate on stuff?
Business besties serve such a greater purpose than a one time collaboration.
Yes, collaboration is one of the many benefits of having a business bestie, but it is so not the only reason.Read More
As entrepreneurs, we have this problem I like to refer to as #allthethings.
You might also know it as shiny object syndrome…
Basically, we have all the ideas all the time, and it’s hard to stick with any original plan we create for our business. (Can I get an amen!?)Read More
I'm a little resistant to change when it doesn't absolutely need to happen. I like to wait for a sign and know without a doubt that it's the right next move.
So months ago my husband started hinting that it was time to replace my car.
Then he slowly introduced the idea of test driving different vehicles.
Then the next thing you know, we were popping into a different car dealership each weekend. (He's a sly one, that smart husband of mine...)
So, how does our car search relate to branding?Read More
