Transformation requires more than a meme.

Affirmations are helpful. Manifesting your wildest desires is a worthy goal. Daily prompts and check-in posts have their place but I am not going to focus on that.

I believe in healing and in integration that is personalized to you.

Is Your Business a Road to Redemption?

What does “making it” actually look like?  Who will you be and what do you need to accomplish to find redemption? The therapist in me would like to issue you an even deeper question. Who told you that you needed redemption anyway and is it really true? Is it possible to have your business just because you want it and not to prove your worthiness which by the way was a job it was never meant to have?

Step Up Into Your Brilliance

I am often told “You are so lucky that you are working for yourself now”, or “I wish I could do that too”  There is no luck involved in this I promise you! But there are steps that you can take to begin to step up into your brilliance! These are some of the steps I took and that I teach my clients to as well.

Why Comparison Does Not Equal Judgement

It can happen in an instant as an entrepreneur. One moment you’re feeling on top of the world and you’re thrilled with your business and the next, you’re spiraling into a sea of self-doubt. A lot of things can trigger that negative narrative but one of the major factors in the thought process is comparison. As you’re going about your business, it’s easy to get derailed by someone else who appears to be doing better, thinking smarter, or going further than you are, even if you have very little evidence that they’re outperforming you.

5 Surprising Reasons Entrepreneurs Procrastinate

When you can give yourself space to take a long look at the deeper reasons why you struggle with procrastination, you give yourself the best opportunity to make a shift — in your thoughts, and mindset, and actions.

Does Your Business Design Include Emotional Sustainability?

In my business I see clients abusing themselves with what appear to be highly driven and success-gaining behaviors. They strive; hustle; they bust their asses; they work themselves silly; and yet, no matter what, they don’t get relief. Do you know why? Because the solution is not to do more work or strive for more success. That only creates a vicious cycle that spirals. The solution is to engage in activities and in quiet contemplation to focus on feeling loved, and worthy, getting actual satisfaction from what you’ve created, and not needing outside approval to validate YOU.

Why Looking Back Helps Your Business Move Forward

We need to take an honest look at our life experiences and how they support us, how they can create challenges, and even create a pathway towards change, we do not drop our baggage at the door when we start a business, take a job, or enter into a relationship. It is wise to look at everything we bring to the table.

You can’t just do the work once and forget about it!

I think too often we don’t give ourselves the time and space to really create a bigger picture of what we want in our business or in our lives, for that matter. The creation of our business first comes from a deep WHY and then gets buried by the HOW. If we took a moment to explore the notion of ourselves in relationship to our business, and what paradigm we want to have, I believe many of us would have a different outcome.

Trauma Triggers and How They Show Up in Your Business

I recognize this trigger of mine. We have had a lifetime together. Instead of spending energy trying to get rid of it, I have spent my time getting to know it and how it shows up for me so that I can move past it and step around it. I am grateful for the knowledge of this trigger and that I have embraced the brilliance that was created by doing things My Way.
