Such a big and scary word that we usually have a negative connotation with it, but fear is really just a survival mechanism our bodies have to keep us alive. It’s a natural emotion that will always be there, especially when we are about to do something outside of our comfort zone.
We can use this fear to our benefit, not just to keep us alive but to help us expand, as something that can guide us in our decisions, by showing us the potential dangers that we can come across.
When we see it as a friend and even a guide, we can plan, prepare AND recognize it as alerting us that we may be growing, changing, expanding, and then choose to move towards it, move through the fear.
Because what really matters most, is HOW we react and deal with it.
Fear can be a great passenger seat buddy and let it alert us to potential threats and harms. BUT if we let it tell ourselves “No, I can’t do...
If you've been following along on Instagram or heard some of the podcasts I've done, you might be familiar with my story of working in a correctional facility...
I felt like I was trapped in a box, confined, so uncomfortable, and consumed with negativity and unhappiness. I felt suffocated and like I was living out a nightmare of being imprisoned myself, by letting life just happen to me, doing what I thought I "should" do. I wasn't consciously choosing what next steps to take in order to change my situation, I just went with the flow of what was there in front of me.
Once this became so completely unbearable, is when I decided to take the reins and begin DESIGNING that life that I actually wanted for myself, and it was this moment of intense clarity where I came to the realization that I could change my life. It was a profound power that said: “It’s my life and I am in control of it.”
I had the realization that no one was going to make...
Have you ever listened to someone's story and feel totally moved by it?
Watched a movie, heard a Tedtalk, read a social media post that moved you? That made you feel impacted or inspired?
It's such an amazing feeling knowing that there is someone out there that you can relate with, that sensation of knowing that you're not alone.
And yet we so often hesitate to share our own story because we're afraid of the criticism and judgment that we might get from other people.
And to be honest, I've definitely been there myself and still have tons of stuff I haven't publicly shared yet.
BUT instead of holding back from a place of fear, I'm just now consciously choosing this unfolding, in my own time, because I know that what I've been through can help others.
What you've been through, can HELP others. We get to choose our own timeline and keep things private if we want to, but we didn't go through these experiences in life to just struggle alone. Maybe there's a gift in the...
Do you have times when you wake up feeling like you just don’t want to get out of bed?
Like you're stuck, unmotivated, overwhelmed, or resistant?
We all have those moments. But those feelings can either mean that you are tired, need rest, more breathing room in your schedule, delegating and outsourcing. That means it's time to build some support into your life and business!
Listening to your true intuition and designing your schedule in a way that serves the vision you are creating for your life OR you’re feeling the fears and letting them eat you up and make the decisions for you.
If you’ve made a commitment, honor it. Show up, it’s always worth it! Unless there is an actual extenuating circumstance, then evaluate the situation and make the aligned decision on how to move forward with the thing that is stressing you out.
9 times out of 10 when you feel resistant, DOING the actual work will be the exact and only thing...
Let's talk about ABUNDANCE. We hear this word all the time. It’s defined as a large quantity of something, the tendency of nature and of life to manifest, grow, and become more. As entrepreneurs we strive to manifest our beliefs, grow our clients and become more for ourselves as a person.
Last year, I made the choice to really introduce myself and get out there, connect with a lot of people who I admire and who share the same beliefs as I do and to learn everything that I can about the “next level” to help grow my business and myself as well. I admit, it was terrifying but also AWESOME!
This year, I have been invited to dozens of guest speaking events, podcasts and virtual summits and I know that many of these invitations stemmed from the NETWORKING that I did at events last year and it made me realize the VALUE of going to summits, networking events, live events, in person meetings and now, still the same events...just virtual. It’s...
I got to film a regional commercial last year and it was super fun! I love getting to do that! It's not my big goal destination of producing my movies or being able to star in films on a bigger level which is part of my vision BUT it's one of the STEPPING stones on the way…at least in my journey and I’m truly grateful for that.
I remember when I was still in a correctional facility and being in a place that was so uncomfortable and because of a turning point in my career, I realized that this is not how I want to live for the rest of my life. I was willing to take the scary step to start pursuing that dream. It didn't matter how ridiculous or foolish it seemed anymore. It is simply something that I knew I wanted to do, SO I made the choice and took the leap to start pursuing professional acting and those micro-decisions that I have made in the past, all add up and have led me to this EXCITING path that I am now on and I am so happy you’re here along this...

As the new year rolls in, let us believe that good things are about to come and that we are ready for it, we deserve it and we are worthy of it.
Ever since the pandemic started, we've been spending most of our time at home. I was already working from home, but now, pretty much everyone is... AND it's now transformed into the shared office, a school, a restaurant and even a gym...relate much? So I'm curious, what is your absolute favorite place in your home right now? Me, I love hanging out on our patio and being able to feel the breeze and soak in that natural light. So when I decided to do some redeco, I really put a lot of time, effort, energy and ok a bit of as well, especially because it has become my favorite home office area.
I spend the majority of my time getting things done while sitting outside every chance I get. And now, this boho chic bungalow is finally done and I couldn’t be more happy with how it looks and the vibe that it gives.

I wanted to share with you my TOP 4 online platforms that I swear by in my business since they have made my biz life so much easier and more efficient.
The first one is LOOM. This platform will save you a lot of time and energy when you need to leave a message, give instructions, feedback and replies. It lets you record your face, your voice and your screen. It even allows you to highlight your own screen on how to complete certain tasks. I use it almost everyday to communicate with me team. AND they also have a chrome extension that makes it super accessible, free and easy to use.
The second is ZOOM. This is the perfect platform for your meetings, training, webinars and classes too. It even lets you record the entire meeting so you can play it back!
My third favorite platform is CALENDLY. It makes online appointment scheduling easy peasy. You can find the perfect meeting time by just sending your link that shows your available dates or even specifies only certain...
Can you believe it’s 2021 already??? The last year just went by so fast. At the beginning of 2020 we probably wrote out some personal and business goals, and then fires, covid, civil unrest, elections, travel bans, separations and more happened and we were all throw off of track. But I’m curious, how many of these goals were you able to check off your list? Regardless of what is happening around us, we still hold great personal power.
Is being healthy part of your new year’s resolution?

Do you have business goals that you haven’t hit yet?
Do you have projects that you’ve been putting off?
Do you have anything that’s left for the remaining of Q4?
If you haven’t achieved these goals,...
