Is it possible to prepare for the unknown as a business owner? What about the unknowns of becoming a mom and preparing your business for maternity leave? I am so excited for you to meet another one of my team members, Audrey Skelton, who is expecting her first little one at the end of 2020.

397: Free Marketing Strategies That Actually Worked for Me This Year
When we were talking about different ideas for the Goal Digger Podcast, one of the topics that came up was what this year has done to our stamina as business owners. So many people are coming close to throwing in the towel. And I get it, we were all tested in new and challenging ways this year. Maybe your marketing budget was slashed. Maybe you didn’t have one to begin with. Maybe what you were doing in the past isn’t hitting the mark anymore and you don’t know where to turn. This episode is all about free ...

396: No Biz Experience? Learn As You Launch like Bella Lam
When Bella Lam made the switch to eating vegan and gluten-free, she was instantly faced with the major lack of offerings in the market for her dietary needs. A chocolate chip cookie that fit her needs was like a unicorn. So Bella thought, why not me? Why can’t I create something that’s clearly missing from the market? That’s the short version of the Coconut Whisk origin story, but I’ll let Bella tell you the whole thing. Bella created Coconut Whisk, building the company alongside her personal brand. She was...


395: 4 Easy Financial Habits for Successful Women
When everything on the outside feels OUT of control, I do my best to return to this: What can I control? What do I have power over? What can I ACTUALLY change? What habits, routines, or thoughts can I shift so that I don’t stay feeling stuck? So while financials are a big, top-of-mind topic these days, let’s talk about financial habits that successful women possess. Because even though things may feel shaky and unpredictable in the economic climate, you DO have control over how you show up in your life and ...

394: Are You Staying? What it Means and Why It Matters
I actually emailed her way back in 2011, when I was just starting my photography business. She graciously answered every question I sent as a complete stranger, thousands of miles away. Over the last decade we’ve been quiet cheerleaders for one another, but I will never, ever forget the way she showed up for me when I dropped into her inbox, a mere admirer of her photography.  She’s a mother of five children, an author, a speaker, a retired photographer, and so much more. I want to get deep with Anjuli toda...

393: The Importance of Narrowing Down Your Niche
Some business experts actually believe that the number 1 mistake new business owners make is NOT niching down enough, and therefore speaking to a massive, unspecific crowd rather than a highly fixed group of people who would BEST benefit from their product or service. But I get it! When you’re starting out especially, you want to get as many clients or customers as possible. It feels scary to try and focus on a smaller group of people! Why would you want to exclude anyone? After all, customers equal profits...


392: Lessons in Fearlessness and Curiosity from a 15-Year Old CEO
Who here started a lemonade stand as their first endeavor into the business world? I did. My brother and I dragged a cooler of Kool-aid down to the end of our driveway and I’m pretty sure my mom called the neighbors to drive by so we’d get a few customers. My lemonade business started and ended there… But when this guest started her lemonade stand, it transformed into something much, much bigger. Mikaila Ulmer is the youngest guest we’ve ever featured on the Goal Digger Podcast. She started her lemonade com...

391: Before & After Digital Course Academy: 3 Students Share Their Fears and Success
These three students decided to take their own plunge by investing in themselves and enrolling in Amy Porterfield’s Digital Course Academy. This program is the gold standard for anyone who wants to create, launch, and scale an online course… And that’s exactly what Danielle, Chrissy, and Nicole have done over the last year. But investing in the program wasn’t a decision that came lightly. Their fear and reservations could’ve prevented them from diving into the water -- could’ve held them back from all of th...

390: The Most Powerful Pivot You Can Make Right Now with Amy Porterfield
If we were to play word association for 2020, I’d bet the very last word that comes to mind is “certainty”. Many of us are watching our peers navigate big changes as we ourselves pivot and adapt. Whether it’s personally or professionally, we’re making decisions that we could’ve never predicted would be on our plates at the start of this year. Pivoting is the theme of this conversation with my friend Amy Porterfield. She was one of the voices I was listening to when I pivoted into the online course world, an...


389: The Real Story Behind How I Started Creating Online Courses
My very first dive into the deep end of the online course world was the result of a friend’s comment on a social media post. She was signed up for this “discovery” call with a business consultant and told me I should hop on, too. By the end of that call I was pitched a course and I made the investment, and those two choices were the start of my career as course creator. Kylie is back on the show to ask me all the questions about online courses, what my very first course looked like, what I did to change my ...

388: Is an Online Course Your Next Best Step? Listen to Find Out
You know you’ve got something to teach. But could you really put it into a course? I’m willing to bet the answer is YES. If you can coach one on one, if you can lead a group of people to see results, even if you’re teaching in an informal or unofficial capacity, then you’re equipped to dive into your first course. Vanessa Hicks is an incredibly talented wedding photographer, she leads a 12-week mastermind group, and now she’s looking at her business in a pandemic world thinking about what’s next. A course i...

387: My Mentor Taught Me How to Uncover What You Can Teach
A funny thing happened when I was growing and gaining some success as an entrepreneur… people began coming to me and asking me how. How did I regularly get clients? How did I curate a social media presence that brought in awesome leads? How did I market myself to actually create consistent income in this unpredictable, heavy service industry? So much of what I was learning about entrepreneurship and marketing wasn’t from my college degree or someone teaching me — it was from DOING it. What I’m completely ce...


386: How She Crafted a Career Where Passion and Profit Intersect
Educator, advocate, activist, storyteller, consultant, philanthropist, dog mom… Just a few titles that my friend Jess Weiner can hang her hat on.

She is a brilliant branding mind with a special super power of connecting companies with their communities. Jess is also expanding her work to connect with her own community ...

385: 3 Steps to Build a Business Concept You're Passionate About
Where passion and profit intersect… THAT is where you want to build your business. Most entrepreneurs get into doing their own thing for a few main reasons: to pursue independence, impact, or their passions. Often, it’s some combination of all 3 but along the way, it can be easy to lose sight of that initial intention. That, my friend, is what we want to avoid. This episode is all about digging into those personal WHYs — the core values that motivate you and what you’re deeply interested in pursuing — and h...

384: The Secret to Selling with Certainty in Uncertain Times
Have you told yourself you’re bad at selling? That it’s scary or slimy? I have. Selling used to be my downfall. And then I learned (with the help of books and my coach and teachers like this guest) that selling requires a mindset shift. And this conversation will help you make that shift and start selling with confidence.  Ivirlei Brookes leads her students through the same transformations that she’s experienced herself, which is what makes her coaching so impactful. Her mindset tools for reframing your app...

Have you ever had that fleeting thought pop into your mind about starting your OWN podcast? If you’re a fan of podcasts of any kind then you’ve probably considered it at least once or twice.

Are you ready for a YouTube lesson?  Molly Burke launched her YouTube channel with make-up tutorials and fashion content, growing it into the massive platform it is today with over 2 million subscribers.

How does she continue her mission while creating video content people can’t help but watch? And what are the behind the s...

Why not switch things up a bit? I’m tossing my interviewer hat to Kylie, the manager for the Goal Digger Podcast, and she’s putting me in the hot seat.

379: New Ways to Serve Your Email List in 2020
This episode is NOT about ways to sell to your list. We’ve all heard the stats about how every $1 spent on email marketing, about $44 is made in return. We KNOW that email marketing is the way to sell and see big profits, and I have tons of content that covers how to do that well. But one of the keys to success in selling to your email list actually has nothing to do with selling or introducing your offer. It’s those in-between seasons, when you’re not in a launch or pushing a new offer, that you form stron...

378: What is an Integrator and Do You Need One?
Each time I make a new hire for my team, I think to myself: “HOW did we survive without this person?” This sentiment is especially true when it comes to Marisa Vittoria, my Integrator. Pre-Marisa, we were all honoring our own workflows, existing in a constant loop of Google Docs and Slack messages, and seeing what we’re capable of now… We were definitely not reaching our fullest potential.  What does an Integrator do and do you need one on your team? And how can you be your own Integrator and establish syst...

377: 3 Simple Ways to Take Responsibility for Your Education Journey
As an educator, a big piece of my job isn’t just to get students to sign up for my programs -- that’s only step #1, really -- the next and more important piece is that I want them to take action, digest & implement the materials, and experience big wins and results.  I want to help you not just dive into a program with hopeful intentions, but to complete the materials with purpose and a plan so that you can begin refining and implementing and reaping the reward that comes with investing in your education.

Is mindset front-of-mind for you? While you’re working on your business, crafting marketing messaging and dreaming up new ways to serve your clients, are you also working on you? As this guest will tell you, mindset is often the piece of the puzzle that’s holding you back from your greatest potential.  Topsie VandenBosch is an expert in entrepreneurial mindset, helping women shed toxic thought patterns, negative thoughts and beliefs that prevent them from showing up, and making bank in their businesses. Her...

375: This is Why No One is Seeing Your Content
When I was just starting out, I blogged Monday – Friday for YEARS… And while it’s admirable or even shocking, looking back those blogs weren’t really doing much for me. In fact, they were sucking up my time and not getting me anywhere closer to my goals. I’d share a new blog post once on Facebook, and then move on to creating the next. It wasn’t until I started creating content with intention and a plan that I started to see REAL results. The solution isn’t creating more and more and more. It’s not spending...

374: Candice Kumai Shares Her Advice for Reinventing Yourself
From cookbooks to TV, magazines and more, Candice Kumai is a well-known name in wellness. In fact, she’s known as the Golden Girl of Wellness. She beautifully weaves her advice for healthful living into stories about her life and heritage, all with a mission to inspire a new generation of wellness lovers and creative artists.  I have so many questions for Candice. What has the journey been like for her? What messy middle moments taught her the most? And what has she learned through exploring her culture and...


373: What You Should Actually Be Blogging About
I believe that blogging isn’t just important for your business to run to its fullest potential… it’s necessary. But the MAIN issue I see entrepreneurs facing is just knowing what to write about. Writer's block is real and there’s only so much to cover in your area of expertise, right? Nope! I want to share with you the things that you ACTUALLY need to be blogging about. Yes, some of this will fall within your business niche, but not always. This system has allowed me to blog 4 to 5 days a week for the 9 yea...

372: What It Means to Niche Down Your Journey and Live Into Your Work
Myisha T. Hill wears a lot of titles -- single mom, a speaker, an activist for Mental Health, an author… That list continues on, and yet she’s found a way to do those things well, and even thrive in each area.  You might quickly think, wow, she’s got balance figured out, but that’s not what she teaches. Myisha is a life synergist, and through her work she debunks the myth of work/life balance, leading her students to find SYNERGY instead. If burn out, overwhelm, and confusion seems to narrate your life or b...


371: Pre-Launch Secrets to Create Buzz and Warm Up Any Audience
In the early days of my brand launching was more of a battle than a sweet cakewalk. Nowadays, we’ve got launching down to a T. We don’t have all the answers -- OH, we are still learning so much every single week and through every single launch. But truthfully it comes down to a lot of little things, and ONE major thing that makes the key difference. I want to talk today about the pre-launch. I believe pre-launch, the period of time before you make the actual offer available or open the cart, is the make or ...

370: How Her Mission to Fund Underestimated Founders is Changing Venture Capital
Arlan Hamilton is a champion for underestimated voices. With her company Backstage Capital, she has invested over $10 million in over 130 companies with underrepresented founders; those who identify as women, People of Color, or LGBTQ. Arlan herself identifies as all three, and she was sleeping on an airport floor when she knew she had to do something about the fact that no one in Venture Capital looked like her. In this interview, Arlan digs into the catalyst moments that lead her to the world of Venture C...

367: Answer These 3 Questions if You Want to Have it All
So I got a Peloton bike late last year, and I have to be totally candid here, I wasn’t sure if I’d fully buy into it. I knew I wanted a new way to move and care for my body so I followed the rave reviews of some friends and got this machine delivered to my house and vowed to just give it a shot. Now let me be totally candid again — It’s not necessarily the bike that keeps me coming back every day. It’s this community of people cheering me on and sending virtual high fives, and maybe most of all, it’s the in...

366: 11 Ways to See Life and Solve Problems Like an Entrepreneur
I’m sharing the 11 simple ways to start thinking like an entrepreneur -- because if I know one thing, it’s that entrepreneurs are often born of a need that only their individual gifts, personality, and experiences can fill. No one is BORN an entrepreneur -- you become one over time and grow into that role like your big sister’s old hand me down shoes you used to wear. It starts out weird and uncomfortable, and then with time and experience, it becomes a natural way of being. It’s not an overnight thing, and...


365: Pep Talks on Transformation from Our Team Funny Girl
Oh, how I have waited with anticipation for the moment you’d get to meet and experience this woman in full force. Brooklyn Wagner is high at the top of my list of both funniest and wisest people I know, not to mention she has a massive gift of copywriting that makes emails feel like a warm hug from a BFF.  I’ve seen such a transformation in her since she started two years ago, and I think hers is a story you’ll hear yourself in, in one way or another. Press play to hear what she’s learned by doing scary thi...

364: Start a Podcast THIS MONTH With These 3 Steps
I started to see a trend recently. More and more people are starting podcasts during their social isolation time, and it surprised me at first...But then it all made sense. Practically the entire world is at home right now, and while lives are still busy and we still have responsibilities, it’s opened up this opportunity for some to have the time to dream again. And we’ve all got stories to share (maybe now more than ever) so a podcast? Well, it’s the perfect medium to get them out into the world. So if you...

363: Lo Bosworth Explains Why a Storytelling Strategy Works
One of my favorite shows of all time has to be Laguna Beach and I still watch all of the spinoffs that continue to grace our television screens to this day. So when the name Lo Bosworth rolled through my inbox I did a double take. THE Lo Bosworth wants to come on MY show, when I’ve been watching hers for years? It’s so fun to see how Lo Bosworth leveraged that platform and created something of her own. But it wasn’t a straight line from a TV career to running her women’s wellness company. Her career is rich...


362: This ONE System Was the Missing Piece I Needed in My Business
My business coach gave me a piece of advice that has forever changed how my business functions. I actually used to manage a team of 20 without any sort of system or task list. My days used to feel frantic and frazzled… But now, I’m focused and freed up, and it was all thanks to implementing his advice. In this episode, I share how we use SOPs in my business, and more importantly, WHY they’re so important and HOW you can begin to create them for yourself, too. Projects and processes feeling nebulous and hard...

361: What is Tapping? A 5-Minute Guided Practice for Anxiety and Stress
Have you heard of tapping? It’s a technique that mixes meditation and psychology and acupressure to manage everything from stress and anxiety to limiting beliefs and more. Maybe it sounds woo-woo on the surface to you right now, but the research behind tapping is enough to make even my analytical mind curious. And maybe you’re wondering too, could tapping be for me? Jessica Ortner is here to teach us the world of tapping, the science behind it all, the massive benefits of the technique, and even lead us thr...

360: 5 Ways to Show Up On Instagram in This Season
It can feel awkward and narcissistic and exhausting to try and show up on Instagram in the middle of a crisis and it can leave us second guessing every post… You might’ve found yourself wondering these same things over the past month or so: am I being insensitive? Am I invoking fear or panic? Am I an expert in this subject? Am I adding something truly helpful to the noise of social media right now? Just because the world is paused around us doesn’t mean we don’t yearn for the same connection, joy, interacti...


359: Boot-Strapped to Billion Dollars: The IT Cosmetics Story
If you want to talk about putting in the work to make your dreams happen, you have to talk to my friend, Jamie Kern Lima. You might be wearing one of her products from IT Cosmetics right now… But before the billion dollar brand was even a thing, she was a TV news anchor struggling with sensitive skin who could never find a product that worked for her.  She created a cosmetics brand that would go on to be more than just products, but an inspired community of millions of women who share their stories of overc...

358: Can Money Buy Happiness? An Unscripted Conversation with my Business Coach
Dean Graziosi is my business coach, and he and I are very different. We approach almost all aspects of business and life differently, but sitting down with people who aren’t like you is exactly how you grow. We have this friendly banter as an odd couple in business, and I love learning from him. I’ve shared conversations with Dean before on the Goal Digger Podcast, but I hope you don’t mind me opening up my little vault of content to share with you a conversation we recorded together with a vision of launch...

357: Steal My Pinterest Strategy Secrets for 1 Million Viewers
With social media, there’s one constant we can count on -- Change. Doesn’t it seem that just as we’ve got it all figured out, the powers-at-be switch it up again? But never fear because my team and I get to work breaking down new strategies to share with you, so you can get on top of the changes faster. The most recent change we’ve been navigating? Pinterest.  A few months ago we received embargoed information from Pinterest in partnership with Tailwind that stated the way the algorithm prioritized and dist...


356: These 5 Thoughts Are Holding You Back
Have you ever talked yourself out of something even though you really *really* wanted to do it? When I’ve had this inner back and forth of should I, shouldn’t I, it’s because I know deep down what I WANT to do, but I’ve heard other voices in my head telling me why I shouldn’t or why I’m not qualified or why I’ll fail… We ALL have these voices that come at us in the form of external messaging and then internal reminders, again and again and again. But we can learn to recognize our limiting beliefs, and decid...

355: An Action Plan to Manage Financial Fear and Anxiety Right Now
I cried on our team call last week. You know the season we’re in is leaving no one unaffected by financial challenges or health worries or our sense of security and normalcy being shaken. I’m overwhelmed and exhausted. And I know I’m not unique in my experience. With layoffs and furloughs and business dropping out from under us -- Financial insecurity is impacting so many.  So what can we do about it? How can we manage the fear, make the best decisions, and even just TALK about what we’re facing so our mone...

354: The 3 Things I Wish I'd Done Sooner
No regrets… But hindsight is usually 20-20.  It’s funny looking back at life and realizing just how many things we could’ve done better, streamlined sooner or simply made smarter decisions about. I’m not an advocate of living with any regrets, but I do think looking at our past is a valuable way to see just how far we’ve come and what we can do better going forward. This is about pinpointing the things I’ve learned to share with you and *hopefully* save you from potential regrets or heartache or frustration...


353: A One Product Business Can Be Successful, Here's Proof
Question: How can you draw a straight line from yourself to the cash? Answer: It’s as simple as ONE product. You only need one product, and one strategy to turn a profit. And that’s how Danielle Leslie built her business. Now she teaches her students a system for creating and launching an online course that proves complexity isn’t necessary. It’s about leaning into the systems that WORK. This stuff is my JAM and I’m excited to nerd out with another course creator right now. Honestly, her approach to course ...

351: This is the Woman Bringing a Hormone-Free Birth Control Pill to the US Market
I watched everyone’s jaw drop to the floor when I told my team what this woman has accomplished. At 15-years old Keiana Cave was researching the BP oil spill and inventing new ways of detecting toxins in seawater after spills. Before she was barely 20 she’d received millions in funding to continue her scientific research. Now at 21, she’s inventing a non-hormonal birth control pill.  She is a scientist and a CEO, she’s a woman innovating for women, and she encourages girls to pursue careers in science, tech...

Fair warning: We both shed tears during this conversation. “Ed Mylett wants to interview you.” I remember that email landing in my inbox.  With so much time and effort focused on making THIS show great, I don’t say yes to many outside interviews these days. So I am so proud and honored to share this conversation I had with Ed. I’ve never been this real before, and I’m grateful Ed invited me to tell my story in a new way. I invite you to listen with your heart wide open, because that’s how I shared my world ...

303: Beyond the Titles: Who is the Real Ed Mylett?

302: How to Deal with Difficult Clients, Refunds, and Unsatisfied Shoppers
Negative reviews. Angry emails. Refund requests. Stubborn or needy clients. Snippy social media comments. Passive aggressive communication. If you own a business, you've dealt with some, if not all of these -- I’m talking about negative feedback from customers or clients, and if you're a human, you know it never feels good. But rather than harping on the criticism, moping in feelings of rejection, or lashing out against the naysayers, I want to walk you through the exact system my team and I use to deal wit...

301: 5 Things You Need To Do on Your LinkedIn Profile Right Now
Confession time: There’s one major platform on the internet I’m not using to its max potential.  I’ve got Instagram down to a science, a healthy and effective strategy on Facebook… But there’s still one big one that eludes me and that platform is LINKEDIN.  Like my profile is there, I have a really old picture, a few notes about me… But that’s it.

300: How to Hit Your Profit Goals Through Price Setting
How much do you cost? One of the most challenging parts of running a business, especially in the beginning, is putting a price value that's fair, smart, not to mention profitable on the products and services we offer.  I invite you to hit play on this episode if you’re wondering if your price is right -- Bob Barker style -- that it's not too high and pushing potential customers away, or too low and practically giving away your resources for a steal.  Should your price reflect the late nights? Hours of dream...


299: Have a College Degree but It's Not Your Passion? Listen to this.
What do you want to be when you grow up?  How did you answer that question growing up? It can be anxiety inducing when you’re multi-passionate or when you haven’t quite figured out what your true purpose is. It can be an even worse question when you’re already on one path and realize, maybe this isn’t my thing? Shea McGee is part of the husband and wife team behind Studio McGee, an interior design firm known across the country for a bright and clean aesthetic. But Shea didn’t start there. In fact, she earne...

298: The Secret to Rest and Why It'll Make Your Business Better
This is your permission to take a day off. Actually, it’s more like an order. Because if I know anything about you, the thought of waking up tomorrow and turning off your phone, muting your email, and tucking your laptop away in your desk makes you feel anxious and frazzled.  But I want to help you take a day off without those feelings. I want a day off to make you feel elated and free! You can't -- and shouldn't -- expect yourself to be connected to work and even social media all day every day and still ma...

297: The CEO Mindset Hacks She Used to Build an Empire
Let’s play a game of word association. Ready? The word is CEO. What do you think of? I used to think of an old white man sitting in a boardroom leading a meeting. Let me tell ya, that vision has changed big time. It looks like a strong woman, a woman with vision, creating a business that serves others and creates a life she has always dreamed of living. I see her when I look in the mirror.  Claiming that CEO title and seeing yourself when you think of those three letters isn’t easy. You might still think of...

Would you believe me if I told you that you can make money selling stuff that you didn’t even create, test, or fund? It’s true!

Think about this… How often do you recommend your hairstylist, your favorite hotel, that skincare product that changed your life, or another product or service that you adore to your friends or following online? We all do it to some extent, ...

295: No One Told Us THIS About Being a Working Mom
No one told us THIS about motherhood… and we’re talking about it mama to mama, CEO to CEO.

294: One Big Clue That You're Ready to Outsource and How to Start
The thought of doing THIS when I was just starting out made me woozy.  Why is it so scary to hand off a piece of your business to someone else? When you're the one running the show, it can feel impossible to hand over even a little bit of the reigns. It could be a time thing (who has the TIME to hire and train someone?) or it could be a trust thing… Like who could actually do the thing just as good as you? I get it because I've felt ALL of these emotions. I was gripping onto my business with white knuckles ...

The FIRST online course I ever paid for back in 2015 and the crazy thing that happened next… ya ready?   Before all of *this* I was just a wedding photographer, trading time for money, being a weekend warrior, with hardly anyone on my email list trying to figure out how to be happy, how to create a business that could run while I rested, and how to be successful working for myself in my PJs.

288: How to Figure Out Anything as a Multi-Passionate Entrepreneur with Marie Forleo
What’s that three word phrase that kicks off a race? READY? Set. GO! It makes a few assumptions: That you have to be READY before you can set yourself up to GO. It might make sense for a foot-race, but otherwise, it’s totally wrong. If we all waited for when we were ready to go anywhere or do anything, we’d never begin. You need to start before you are ready. That’s what Marie Forleo did. Chances are if you’re in the online business space, you’ve heard of B-School and it’s incredible creator, Marie Forleo. ...


287: How to Change Your Sales Mindset to Make More Money
Raise your hand if you love selling. Anyone? Anyone? No? I see way more people with their hands way down. I get it. We’ve all been sold to in a way that feels sleazy, pushy, and manipulative and we don’t want to be those people.  As consumers we’re naturally inclined to be skeptical of whatever product or service is being peddled. That mindset block transferred over to me as an entrepreneur, and it took some careful undoing to finally realize that I can sell differently. And you can, too. This episode will ...

What does she have that I don’t have? You ever ask yourself that while scrolling your Instagram feed? Raise your hand if you’ve ever compared yourself to someone you saw on social media!

Are you lonely? Making and maintaining friendships as an adult can be HARD. My friends aren't just a group of ladies to grab a glass of wine and gossip with -- these women are the people who know my soul, want to hear about my heartaches, and ignite some of the deepest belly laughter and go-get-em inspiration ever.

281: A New Strategy for Emails That Engage and Actually Get Read
GUESS: 58% of humans do THIS first thing in the morning. If you’re one of the 42-percent who probably use the bathroom first thing, good for you.

277: The Secret to Overcoming Imposter Syndrome
Imposter syndrome is feeling out of place in the scenes you’ve dreamed up for yourself. It’s reaching that big goal and looking around thinking, “I don’t belong here, someone is going to call me out, I’m not supposed to be here.”  Imposter syndrome plagues even the most accomplished, successful people because it has nothing to do with our qualifications or experience.

My business mantras include -- One: Done is better than perfect. Two: Nothing is urgent.

273: Why I Shouldn't Have Been Afraid to Become a Mom
I was afraid to have a baby. I wasn’t a maternal woman, I loved work so much, I enjoyed every ounce of freedom, I wanted Drew to myself, I didn’t want to “ruin” my body and I required 10 hours of sleep a night...  There were so many reasons why I worried about becoming a mom and yet this yearning came on, 5 years into marriage after we vowed we’d never have kids. That was the start of a caption I shared just one month into motherhood. It’s how I felt before I knew how I would morph into a new version of mys...

271: Why Your Business Needs a Blog
Is blogging dead? A woman in my mastermind asked me the question at my mastermind retreat last fall. It wasn’t the first time, and over the years I tend to hear this question more and more.  As a girl who started this entire business simply by launching a free Wordpress blog over eight years ago, it’s safe to say that I’m kind of hooked on blogging, and I get a little defensive over it because it was my baby for all of these years.  Have you questioned if blogging is even relevant anymore? Or are you just s...

A few weeks ago, I was standing on a balcony in Puerto Rico… The sun was setting, I was staring down at the beach, holding a glass of champagne and I had a moment. One of those moments when time freezes and you see this sort of highlight reel of a part of your life.

239: How Being Decisive Leads to Success
Decisions, decisions. Are you good at making them or do decisions fill you with fear and doubt? I haven’t always been super decisive, in fact, in the past I would’ve categorized myself as a wishy-washy people pleaser. Can you relate with that? You want to make everyone happy so you let others make decisions for you, like where to eat for dinner or what movie to watch. Now Drew would probably argue that I’m a little TOO decisive, but I know what I want and now I don’t really waiver or question my decision. I...

233: What No One Tells You About "Success"
I want to be super honest with you. My success changed my world. Most women say they are equally afraid of success as they are afraid of failing… That says a lot.

You ask about this a lot and I think it’s worth devoting an episode that’s real and vulnerable about my personal experience of...
