Hey y'all! I wasn't planning on recording this episode today, but as conflicts increase in Gaza and Israel, I wanted to share some of the things I've learned along the way when it comes to running your business during crisis. Especially some best practices I've employed for myself in case they're helpful for you too! In this episode, I'm diving into:Using your voice and establishing boundaries around feedbackKnowing your position & responsibility in regards to your leadershipOur 3 core responsibilities as business owners to our communities, our businesses, and ourselvesAnd how to lean into restorative practices when you're feeling emotionally flooded with the harsh realities in this worldAs I mentioned in this episode, I will make mistakes with my language, word-choice, and understanding, and I most certainly do not have all the answers, but my inbox is always open to sit with you as you rumble with your own.
Oh friends... this is a fiery episode today! Get ready!Today, we're finishing our DreamMoney™️ Series with our final episode and I'm so excited to dive in!

Lastly, our world is experiencing massive upset with the war in Palestine and Israel right now. It is essential we name the atrocities that are happening while continuing to run our businesses. Here's the blurb that's in my emails this week if it's helpful to find some words to say when they can be so hard to find. This isn't to share as the "right" way, but I've had several of you reach out sharing how helpful it was as we navigate this week together with sensitivity and care for our community members who are the most impacted. I hope it can be a starting place for you with your own communities."A note to our community - I ashamedly do not know enough about the history of Palestine and Israel to speak to the current events with the sensitivity and care they deserve and I'm learning more and more each day, but anytime there is a loss of innocent life that is connected to hate, it rocks our compassionate community to its core. While we are a US based business, we acknowledge our global community.  This is especially important in the context of making every effort to name and bring attention to current events vs. carrying on as "business as usual". Although we are in a promotional time period this week to serve those not directly impacted, this is in no way, shape, or form, a decision meant to be insensitive to our community members who are most impacted by the recent events in Israel. "

Hey, hey TBD Fam! We're cruising along with our 5-part series as we break down the D.R.E.A.M. of DreamMoney™ and this week, we're talking all about Ease. Come to find out, I have a lot to share on this because Ease has not been easy for me! We're kicking off a 3-4 part episode series on just this concept alone, especially: What ease is and isn’t.  This is where we’re starting today. Creating financial systems that add clarity because if we want something to feel easeful, there needs to be organization and a system that isn’t overwhelming. Ease around earning.  How we can create more ease for revenue to come in - but I’ll go ahead and tell you - ease does not mean doing nothing and poof - money arrives.  But there are definitely strategic ways for ease to be part of the plan and I’m excited to dive into this one. And lastly, I know I want to talk about mastery because when we think about things that feel easeful - there’s a lot of comfortability, confidence, routine here and I want to talk about how we specifically create it!  So, let's dive into what Ease is and isn't today! I'm sharing:My personal journey with this core value and all the 4-letter words its brought up along the way. The things that interrupt ease and what to do instead. And the difference between ease, effort, and efforting. You ready? Let's dive in!

Hey, hey, y'all! Today is a VERY special episode because I'm sharing my new signature framework name for the very first time and I cannot wait to move this baby out in the world! In this episode, we're diving into 6 key considerations (of several) that make a strong brand name: Names that create an instant resonance (like ohhhh, yes! I want this!) Names that create an instant curiosity (like yess! Tell me more!) Names that are part of your dream client's long-term vision (your brand name is part of where they want to ultimately go) Names that also have a clear opposite (tune into the episode for this one, for sure!) Names that are clear vs catchy (although a name that does both is #GOALS) Names that are very close to how you normally speak (this ensures its a name that doesn't feel forced or like "fetch" in Mean Girls - IYKYK 😉)Obviously, this is a big undertaking, which is why naming things is no walk in the park! This is also why it's so incredibly meaningful for me to share this brand new signature framework name with you today! I can't wait to hear how it lands. Come celebrate with me on IG!! 🥳Links mentioned in this episode: Come learn live with me all next week during Leap Week where I'll be walking you through my brand new signature framework for the very first time!Come celebrate with me on IG! Send me a DM and let me know how this new name lands!! I'd love to hear from you ❤️

Redefining Patriotism

Redefining Patriotism


Hey, hey TBD Fam! It's a holiday week here in the U.S. and if you, like me, don't feel particularly celebratory celebrating the idea of "freedom" in a country when so many freedoms don't exist, you're not alone! Since waking up to White Supremacy in 2016, I've been on a deliberate journey of redefining my relationship to the U.S.'s past & present while doing the inner work of staying steadfast to the possibility of a more equitable future. In this episode, I'm taking you behind the scenes of my choice to abstain from celebrating the 4th of July and honor it instead. Plus, the work I'm doing in this season to maybe reclaim this holiday (still undecided) and most definitely the process of redefining patriotism.

Oh hey, TBD fam! I'm officially back from house hunting in Vegas and I most definitely came home with more questions than answers, but I'm super glad I went, it's definitely still on the table, and I'm also not so sure it's a place that feels like home... yet. With that, I took an extra week off the show than planned to give myself a bit more space to bring you my absolute best content and I'm so glad I took that extra pause because this episode is SO GOOD! Over the past few months, I've been slowly de-scaling my business and in this episode, I'm breaking down: Why I'm doing itWhat it looks likeHow it's doubling my monthly recurring revenue (MRR) from Q1 + then some!One of the trade-offs I'm making to shift into this less scaled business model (this is a big one!!)Plus, one of the gains I'm focused on this shift generating too!I can't wait for you to tune in! Let's do this ❤️
Oh, fam! This topic has been so present for me lately as I've been navigating some forced timelines that are never going to work out in a feel good way in the end. If you've ever felt like you're in this tug/pull dynamic with your business where there might be some subconscious ultimatums happening behind the scenes... definitely tune into this episode! I'll be back in 2 weeks to pick things back up where we left off. Until then, that next step is always on its way ;)
Hey, hey! Following the recent live training series on mapping out a Values-Driven Launch, I wanted to dive into creating a Values-Driven Sales Process that will surely be a huge part of this overall strategy! Inside this episode, I name some of Kelly Diels' work around the Female Lifestyle Empowerment Brand and how so much of what this model promotes is a feminine-washed version of misogyny and what we need to shift into instead. Inside a Values-Driven Sales Process, we're intentionally de-conditioning ourselves from a lot of the so-called "best kept" sales & marketing tactics and running them through our values system instead. The result is a sales process that:Allows your values to leadAllows your values to be deeply feltAnd also intentionally contributes to a person-centered way of selling that honors others humanity, sovereignty, and agency! Let's dive in! Links mentioned in this episode: Lisa Kuzman for her "consent at every turn" Kelly Diels and the FLEB phenomenon
