In this episode I am sharing an experience dealing with “trolls” or negative people on the internet.  When we are building our businesses online, sharing vulnerable stories, we are putting ourselves out there and it leaves us exposed.  When we get a hater who messages on our post, or sends a dm, we can choose how we respond.  I recently received a nasty one, and wanted to share the experience with you in a podcast episode.  In this episode we discuss:  1) Our haters are always there, people will disagree with us, and they're allowed to.  Their response is not...

Own Your Choices Own Your Life

In this episode, I want to share some thoughts in response to what do I do when I am in a funk?  There’s this weird message (unspoken) in social media, building an online business, of what do I do when I am in a funk? Or even more ridiculously, assuming people in the online space don’t have off days or that they’re in a funk.  That is when we’re not even being fair, reasonable with ourselves.  That is where comparison can be a really slippery slope. In this episode, we discuss: 1)  How to identify when you are in a funk, what does that look like for you, and how...

Ask Ask "What is This Teaching Me"

Own Your Choices Own Your Life

In this episode, I am sharing the go-to question, that I refer back to on a regular basis.  If we are always willing to learn and grow, and if we are asking for growth, then life will be forever teaching us lessons.  What we choose to make that mean is all on us. I have lived and embodied this question and lesson especially over the last month. In this episode, we discuss: 1)  We decide at any time what something is teaching us.  We are a victim of our circumstances or a the victor of our story.  We always get to decide. 2) How we all sign up for our soul contract and...

Is Perfectionism Stopping You? show art Is Perfectionism Stopping You?

Own Your Choices Own Your Life

In this episode I am talking about perfectionism and how it is a 20-ton block that we hold onto to keep ourselves “safe, protected and we believe unaffected by the potential opinions and judgements of others.”  As Brene Brown says, “If I look perfect, live perfect, work perfect, I can avoid or minimize criticism or blame.” Perfectionism is a learned behaviour that typically comes from childhood and a lot of times it is a block that we use to keep ourselves from being hurt, yet all it is doing is keeping us from being seen.  In this episode we discuss: 1) I am a recovering...

The Power of Your VoiceIn this episode, I am sharing some thoughts and misconceptions when it comes to “finding your voice”.  You actually don’t need to find your voice.  You haven’t lost it or never had it, you haven’t used it because you are waiting to feel confident, to trust it or to find a way to avoid criticism or judgments from others who might disagree with your message. In this episode, we discuss: 1)  Action breeds confidence.  The only way to start to build confidence is to get into action.  Let it be messy, not perfect, this is how you let others...

In this episode, I wanted to share some of my back story on how I got here.  It comes down to we think we know someone’s story but we never do. We know the chapter we are reading and what we perceive the story is.  As I was breaking down the content for the HOW program, and combining that with the book content from The Gap and The Gain it had me stop and want to share this journey with you. 

In this episode, we discuss:
1)  The steps in my early journey, the bold and scary moves I made and the impact that they made in my life to bring me to this point.

2) How important it is to measure ourselves backwards - by how far we have come and what that looks like. We can have goals moving forward but we must measure our progress by looking backwards.
