Kids make fantastic teachers.
They have an interesting way of teaching you things that you might not be able to learn anywhere else.
Kids are straightforward, honest, and incredibly innocent.
All this makes them perfect for delivering life lessons you might not know you needed.
My 3 year-old taught me one of the most valuable lessons I learned in one of the purest ways.
She told me 4 words that I will never forget.
“Mommy I miss you”
As a parent this can be heart wrenching to hear when you have been home with them all day.
While I was there with them physically, I wasn’t present with them.
What they missed was the connection, not my body sitting there on the computer.
I was too busy serving all my 1:1 clients, marketing my business, and trying to make a living that I forgot that my kids who mean the world to me are my #2 priority (after my own health of course).
Before this interaction I didn’t even realize that I was spending far too much time on my...
You need to sell your soul to succeed.
Well not exactly that…
The BIGGEST lie is that you must work an inhuman amount of time to see success as an entrepreneur.
Think sleepless nights, working on weekends, and having to skip those fun family parties. (Which let’s be real, it’s basically selling your soul)
If you’re not spending every waking moment working on your business then there’s no way you can succeed.
Contrary to popular belief, more time put into your business doesn’t mean you’ll get more out of your business.
In fact, it’s the opposite and doing this will only put you on the fast track to burn out.
Fortunately, you don’t need to work 16-hour days to grow and scale your business to 6 figures.
What if I told you that you can grow your business to 6 figures in 16 hours a week?
The thought of this might seem crazy!
Know that it’s not just a pipe dream or something that’s only reserved for the upper echelon...

Last year I spoke with a woman on the phone about working with us in one of our high-level masterminds.
I am sharing this with you today because even though I have really good systems and a good mindset around sales, sometimes I make mistakes too.
I was not using my system and being diligent about following up with this particular client.
I let my own brain get in the way of helping her.
I made excuses for why I shouldn’t follow up with her.
Things like “I don’t want to bother her.”
“She just booked out of nowhere so she probably needs more time to get to know my brand better.”
And “I just don’t know if she is my ideal customer.”
I shudder when I think about the truth of these statements, given what I know now.
I spoke with her just last week and immediately I realized that I had failed her.
Since that time, she invested in multiple courses to try to learn all the...
Last year, we ran an event and in one day we got 2000 visitors to the registration page.
Sounds like a dream come true for most online business owners.
Well you know me, I always tell it like it is and share the real raw truth.
Our conversion rate sucked.
When I looked at what our copywriter had written...it stood out to me like a sore thumb.
One word made the difference between 90 more people registering for the event.
See the copywriter was trying to target the higher level entrepreneur that we usually serve in our higher level programs.
But the word “next” excluded everyone who had not yet reached the 6-figure mark.
And this particular event was meant to be for list growth and getting clients into our ascension plan, not to sell them right into the highest level.
When we changed that one word we increased conversions and were able to capture 90 more people from that single word without...
Sometimes I feel like I am on top of the world.
Like I can do hard things, like a boss, like a badass.
And other times I feel like a complete failure as a business owner, as a mom, and in my life.
Can you relate?
This is just a part of the human condition.
When I hear people ask me how to grow their confidence so that they can sell more.
Or how to maintain that sense of “I can do anything” after the 50th rejection for the week.
The best answer I have is, #1 there is nothing wrong with you.
You are a human with a human brain that tends to generalize, and be really good at finding problems.
And more importantly, you are not the human that is on the sidelines, not going after your dreams.
YOU are showing up and going after your dreams.
It is natural to experience fear and doubt when you are playing life full out.
These feelings are what have...

This morning, I spent some time deep cleaning my house.
You know, getting to the nooks and crannies that don’t get cleaned as often.
It got me thinking about how in business the same type of thing happens.
We are focused on the daily to do, the weekly and monthly tasks that need to get done...or worse yet just reacting to the chaos (in the case of my house the 100 tiny toys the kids just dumped on the floor).
That we forget about those nooks and crannies.
The difference between our homes and our businesses is that nothing will really happen if you don’t clean the nook or cranny.
In a business not ensuring that every nook or cranny is properly tended to can lead to massive inefficiencies in your workflow and your business’s profitability.
So what ends up happening is you work more and more and more on the daily urgent stuff and next thing you know you have nothing...
A few months ago I discovered a woman that teaches how to take care of natural hair and I fell in love with her.
As a privileged white mom, I had spent thousands of dollars on products, tried a ton of techniques that left both my daughter and I in tears until I found this blog that taught me how to care for my daughter’s hair.
But you won’t believe what she had the courage to do.
She stepped into the shower on video and literally showed how to take care of her hair.
I remember the moment that I saw her do it.
I was so grateful that she had the courage to step out of what society deems as “normal” (and no she was not naked she wore a bathing suit).
I was glad she wasn’t too embarrassed to get into the shower on video so that she could make an impact on families like mine that really needed this information.
And so today, my message to you is that you do the equivalent of stepping into the shower on...
Facebook groups can be one tactic to grow your audience, but it doesn’t have to be the only. If it's not 100% aligned with what feels good to you, there are a million other ways to build a business.
If you still want to build your audience through Facebook groups and you are wondering how to keep a group engaged, you need to give yourself grace. If you stopped engaging and showing up in your group, you need to have some forgiveness and not be hard on yourself.
And so if you are struggling to get more interaction on Facebook, because you didn't show up in your Facebook group you need to clear that, otherwise, when you do decide to show up, you will feel shame and guilt. And that's not going to serve you. Long-term, it's not going to create consistency and persistence, which is what you need.
Nothing in the past needs to be changed. You can just move forward. And as long as you are in alignment, as long as you're intentional with what you're creating, then you can move...
