Every successful entrepreneur has a good mentor or coach. In my opinion, everyone should have one. You can’t go it alone, nor should you. We all need someone who will help us build our business, achieve certain life goals, see our blindspots; provide guidance, insight, feedback, some tough love, and inspiration - someone who gives us the support we need to grow and prosper in life or business.

The coaching industry has exploded in the past several years. There is seemingly a coach for everything. According to IBIS World, this year the US business coaching industry is worth an estimated…

Say you’re just starting out as a coach or consultant. You have your “genius zone”. You know the results you’ve been able to achieve for yourself or others. You’re an expert in your field and have a great idea for that online course or program that you know will help so many others achieve their goals and dreams. Then…

SQUIRREL!

You start seeing all of these ads by marketers pictured in front of a Lamborghini, boarding a private plane, or on some luxurious vacation who specifically help coaches, consultants, and entrepreneurs…

I’m sure you’ve read time and time again about the importance of gratitude, and I agree: It is very important to have an attitude of gratitude in life. I have a daily gratitude ritual. Hell, I even published a gratitude journal. I am all about gratitude!

I recently read an article that started with: “The #1 thing that holds people back from having a smoothe-as-honey lifestyle, where you can just get up, feel great, and connect with other people in meaningful ways, is… Not being grateful.”

Easier said than done! Sometimes when the shit show of life is really hitting…

“When you let go, you create space for better things to enter your life.” — Unknown

We’ve all been in the position at some point in our lives where we have to make the decision to let something or someone go.

I recently had to make this decision with the animal rescue I co-founded. I decided to take a 3-month sabbatical to focus on certain areas of my life I’ve been neglecting for the past seven years because I’ve been pouring my heart and soul into the organization and the mission itself. And while it’s only temporary, it was still…

You always see me recommending meditation as a tool to help in various areas of self care and personal development. However, many don’t actually know how to meditate. Either they don’t believe they can quiet their mind, or they feel they don’t have the time or a way to take 10–15 minutes just to themselves.

There’s also the belief that you have to be some sort of Deepak Chopra-like spiritual guru in order to develop a meditation practice and routine. While it’s true that you could gain a deeper sense of spirituality when you meditate, or go into a trance-like…

This post is for those who’ve bought into programs and struggled to succeed. I am sending you a ton of love right now!

This whole financial freedom in just 8 weeks; or thousands of new followers at the blink of an eye; or create a whole new prosperous online business overnight is all smoke and mirrors. It’s fake news folks. Sorry to burst your bubble.

The truth is: To succeed, you need a foundation, a strategy, effort and time. You can’t be a stay-at-home mom with no money, no followers, no experience, no knowledge of business, tech, social media, etc…

I can say I am a pretty strong person, both mentally and emotionally. I’ve been through a lot in life that would make some people crumble. Not that I’m bragging. I just have a lot of fortitude. Maybe it’s because I come from a family of strong women including a mother who was a street cop in Atlanta. If we’d cry, she’d give us something to cry about. We had to toughen up. There’s no crying in baseball!

I also co-founded and operate a nonprofit animal rescue. I see the best and worst in humanity everyday. There’s no shortage of…

Me? I wasn’t a morning person. I was so the don’t-poke-the-bear type before my first cup of coffee. Everyone in my family knew this. They would speak in hushed voices and not say a word to me until I gave them the go-ahead. Oscar the Grouch had nothing on me! But, that also meant my days were pretty crappy. I constantly had negative thoughts and emotions about anything and everything. My life was a amalgam of hurt, regret, guilt, shame, worry, fear, and disappointment.

The problem was: I was completely unconscious of it. “This is just the way I am”…

This holiday season is going to be quite lonely for many. With new lockdown orders, and in some areas curfews, many aren’t comfortable traveling or attending social gatherings. I have seen a number of posts and comments by friends and friends of friends about spending the holidays alone, which can be quite depressing.

We’ve already seen an increase in anxiety, depression, loneliness and isolation since the COVID-19 pandemic began. Suicide rates have also been on the rise. Cook County, Illinois and Fresno, California are just two major cities who have reported and increase in suicides this year with a 13%…
