By | Get Your Groove Back | Leave A Comment

If you want help to start or grow your own business, you’re in the right place.

Allow me to introduce you to my business coach, Marie Forleo. She’s the founder of B-School, a coaching program designed to help you bring your dream business to life. B-School only runs once per year. And that time is NOW!

I’ve been a student of B-School for the last 3 years. It taught me how to build a for-profit, for-good, heart centered online business. By applying the program, I’ve grown this empowerment community to more than 45K women, and my coaching advice videos have been viewed more than 500,000 times. I’ve done this from my home office (or my couch or dining room table) with my dog at my feet.

Maybe your dream business isn’t feeling so dreamy, and you need some structured support to get back on track. You could be making progress, and be ready to take things to the next level. You might be working in the corporate world, fantasizing about making your side hustle your full time thing, or you could be toying with the idea of starting something. No matter what path you’re walking, B School can help you get clear and GET GOING.

I’m so thrilled with B-School that I’ve become an affiliate partner. That means I earn a commission if you decide to enroll through my affiliate link (at the bottom of the page). I’ll be rolling my sleeves up to help you slay this thing when you enroll through me. In fact, I have an entire bonus package for you. Think of it like a little insurance policy for your success.

When I started my business, the last thing I wanted to think about was marketing. (I’m an empowerment coach. I wanted to focus on working with clients. ) Eventually, I realized that to find clients I’d need to start marketing. (Sigh.) Even worse, I was going to need to do it on line. (Yuck.)

When I thought about online marketing, it brought to mind cheesy jargon and squeeze pages. I wanted no part of it. Happily, I connected with Marie Forleo and her program B-School, where I learned that marketing doesn’t need to be sleazy at all. In fact, authenticity rules in the online world.

Marie taught me how to market from the heart. Using her strategies, I’ve grown my empowerment community (this very one you’re part of) to more than 45K women from 9 different countries, and in just two short years, I’ve reached more than 500K women through my coaching advice videos. (That’s a lot of empowerment, right?)

I’m doing work I love, helping people I care about, and I’ve done it through on-line marketing. If I can do it, you can too. If I can do it, you can too. Check out Marie’s free training video to learn more.

I’m so excited! B-School IS HERE!!!

I almost didn’t start my business. It was 2015, and I was working in a corporate job while yearning to venture out on my own. I wanted to do more meaningful work, and I fantasized about having control of my schedule. I was holding back because I had this picture in my mind about what a business was supposed to look like. It included employees and investors, and that sounded terrible to me.

It was about that time that I learned about the amazing Marie Forleo and B-School. I took her free business workshop, and it changed EVERYTHING. Marie introduced me to the concept of the micro-business, which is just like it sounds. It’s a business that’s kept intentionally small. It’s location independent, and has no employees. Just like that, she gave me another way to look at things.

I enrolled in B-School, and launched my current company, which now lets me offer empowerment coaching to thousands of women in 9 different countries each day – from wherever I happen to be. B-School helped me make my dream business a reality. I’m a forever fan, and happily this year I’ve become a partner as well. If you have a dream business in you, I enthusiastically encourage you to check it out. You can start with Marie’s Free Business Workshop about how to make a profit while making a difference.

How To Connect With Your Power

By | Get Your Groove Back | Leave A Comment

How to connect with your power.

What would you do if you felt powerful? Would you start that business you’ve been dreaming about, or ask for a raise? Would you use the word no more often, put an end to people pleasing, or start speaking your mind?

If you were feeling your mojo, what would you allow yourself to accomplish? Would you stop playing small and talking yourself out of going for things? Would you wear your ambition with pride, and collaborate with other women instead of feeling the need to compete with them?

While I haven’t had the opportunity to meet you personally, I’ve worked with enough women throughout my 15 years of professional coaching to know that your answer to these questions is YES.

Yes. If you felt powerful you would say no more often. You would stop it with approval seeking, and start speaking up for yourself. You wouldn’t say yes when you mean no, and you’d give yourself permission to go for what you want. In fact, you’d celebrate the very act of going for it, and you’d look for ways to cooperate and support your fellow sisters as they went for it too. (Totally awesome, right?)

You would do these things because when you’re centered in your own power, you show up to life as the best version of yourself. And let me tell you, the best version of you is a BADASS. When she takes charge of things, everything in your life improves.

Your career becomes more fulfilling and you start to succeed. Your relationships deepen and take on new dimensions. You get your financial house in order, and you become more confident. Your focus sharpens, your energy increases, and you begin to feel good in your own skin. You can live every day as the most empowered version of you. I’m here to show you how. Read More

How To Navigate Change

By | Get Your Groove Back | 6 Comments | Leave A Comment

Welcome to the season of the New Year’s Resolution. Have you made yours yet? Research shows us that about 41% of Americans do. It also shows that by February a whopping 80 percent of resolutions have been broken. While that statistic can feel a bit daunting, you don’t have to be part of the 80 percent.

You can join the gang that gets stuff done and makes change stick. (Those would be the people in 20 percent land). To do it, you just need to learn how to manage change. I’m going to teach you how to do that today. First, let’s talk a little bit about change itself.

As a life coach, I’ve helped clients make personal and professional changes for more than 14 years, and I’ve come to believe that all changes (even the positive ones) create earthquakes in your life. Some are little. Some are major. All of them shake you right to your core.

That’s because the process of changing is an active one. It asks something of you. You don’t get to sit back and let stuff happen when you’re dealing with transitions. Changing times require you to roll your sleeves up, and engage with your life like you mean it.

You have to decide what you want, alter your routines, and be willing to look at things in new ways. Change even asks you to expand the way you see yourself. As you can imagine, all of this altering and expanding feels really uncomfortable. In fact, it creates something called uncertainty.

Uncertainty is basically doubt on steroids. It places you in unpredictable territory, and that sends your brain into high alert. Which makes you feel like you’re coming unglued. It can also send you screaming back to your old way of doing things. (That 80 percent is starting to make sense now, isn’t it?)

Maybe you’re the one initiating change as you go for something you really want. (If so, you go girl!) Or perhaps you’re on the receiving end of an unwelcome and unwanted change. (If so, I’m sorry. That’s so hard.)

No matter how you got here, if you’re flailing around in the change zone trying to figure out how to make it through, I can help. (And don’t worry. There’s nothing wrong with you. You’re totally normal flailing around in there.) In our current episode of GrooveTV I’ll show you how to navigate change like a champ. Press PLAY already. Let’s kick some resolution booty, shall we?

How to Get Unstuck

By | Get Your Groove Back | 4 Comments | Leave A Comment

If you’re human, you’ve probably been stuck a time or two. In fact, if you’re reading this, there’s a good bet you’re stuck on something right now. (If that’s the case, please keep reading. I can help.)

Being stuck is exhausting, because even though you’re not actually getting anywhere, you’re in constant emotional motion. You see, stuck comes with it’s own playlist of dark feelings.

In the beginning, you might be frustrated, impatient, or indignant. Eventually, after fighting stuck for a while, you transition to feeling angry, sad, and possibly even hopeless.

Stuck-ness involves struggle and repetition. Maybe you’re having the same argument over and over again with your spouse (or boss, or parent, or child) where you talk the problem to death, but you can’t seem to solve it. Or the same kind of person could be showing up in in your life again and again, derailing you with their drama and distraction.

You could be in the worst of stuck, where you’ve fallen into a self-defeating pattern. This is the stuck where you’re doing something that isn’t good for you (or your life). You know your behavior is in conflict with what you say you want. You know it’s not good for you. But you keep doing it anyway.

Maybe you’re spending money you don’t have, or you’re procrastinating and avoiding doing what needs to be done to move your life forward. You could be self-harming. Maybe you’re drinking or popping a pill to numb out, pounding bags of Doritos to comfort yourself, or confusing sex with love (and therefore having quite a lot of it).

How to set a boundary.

By | Get Your Groove Back | One Comment | Leave A Comment

With the holidays upon us, I thought it would be appropriate to have a discussion about boundaries. Because the truth of the matter is this. Your to-do list is about to birth holiday quadruplets, and your schedule now includes a ton of time with extended family. (And that is not always easy.)

Family is the source of so much love and support. It can also be the source of a great deal of angst and unnecessary drama. We’re all spoon fed this picture of holiday bliss and togetherness (especially now that we live in a social media age), but in my work as a life coach, I’ve found that family stories are a lot more complicated than that.

Everyone has a rulebook they use for life. Your rules tell you what’s okay, and what’s not okay. They guide your behavior, and they dictate what you expect from other people. This would work great if everyone played by the same rules, but (of course) that’s not how it works. People’s rules for life differ as much as people do.

When you think about rules in this way, it makes sense that gathering a large group of people together (even when they love each other) is going to result in some level of dysfunction and conflict, doesn’t it? While there’s little you can do to control the presence of challenging circumstances, you are totally in control of how you respond to them.

I want you to respond on purpose, so today I’m going to teach you how to set boundaries. A boundary is a behavioral fence. It helps you define limits for others, and it helps others define limits for you.

Hear me now. Relationships without boundaries do not work. They create misunderstandings, and breed resentment. (So it’s really important that you deal with setting boundaries, even if it makes you uncomfortable.) Let’s master boundaries in our current episode of GrooveTV. Press PLAY already. You’re in charge of you, remember? Read More

How To Get Motivated

By | Get Your Groove Back | Leave A Comment

You know that thing you want? (It’s the one you keep fantasizing about and wishing for.) You can have it. You really can, and it will be just as fantastic as you keep imagining. There’s a catch. (Of course.) You can’t think your way into a fantasy-come-true life. You have to behave your way there. You have to live for the life you want. (I can show you how to do that. Keep reading.)

The unpleasant truth about lost dreams is that most people don’t have what they want because they aren’t willing to do what needs to be done to have it. (Ouch, right?) Big accomplishments ask for big behavior. They require your engagement, your effort, and your consistency.

To have what you want, you’re going to need to do some things you don’t want to do. (Probably a lot of them actually.) You’re also going to be uncomfortable more times than you can count. You’re going to have to stretch and grow. While that’s simple (if somewhat unpleasant) to understand, it’s not an easy thing to do. Motivation can help you do it.

Motivation is an energy that helps you buckle down and do what needs to be done (even when you REALLY don’t want to do it). Motivation is an internal fuel that pushes you through blocks, and pulls you into those fantasies-come-true I mentioned earlier. You CAN have your dream life. Motivation can help you claim it, and in our current episode of GrooveTV we’re gonna get you some. Press PLAY already. Your mojo is waiting. ☺

We’ll handle this in three simple steps. (Like always.) Here we go… Read More

How to put the passion back into your life.

By | Get Your Groove Back | 2 Comments | Leave A Comment

When was the last time you felt passionate?

I’m not talking about sexual passion. (Though that’s what most people think about when the word is used.) I’m talking life passion. When you have passion in your life, you wake up excited about the day ahead of you, and you take on projects with enthusiasm. With passion in your heart, you become the girl who goes for it. (Even when you’re going for daunting or difficult things.)

A passionate you is a powerful you, but if you’re like most women, you probably haven’t felt the fire in a long time. (It’s tough to feel passionate when you’re drowning in your own life, isn’t it?) If you’re deep in the drowning part right now, you may doubt that passion is possible for you, but that’s not true.

Passion is possible for you, and you can claim it today. (I promise it’s true. Keep reading.)

The topic of passion itself can feel tough to grasp. What’s the big deal anyway? Who cares if you have it? What difference does it make? The thing is, it can make a pretty big difference. You see, a life without passion can turn you into a member of the Walking Dead. (In case you haven’t watched the popular show, those are flesh-eating zombies I’m referring to. Super fun to watch on TV. Super stinky to live like one.)

If you’re stuck in zombie land, living on autopilot, going through the motions, and just trying to make it through the day, this blog is for you. A life without passion is a life without joy. You deserve so much better than that. Let’s go claim your better right now, okay? In our current episode of GrooveTV we’re gonna create your very own passion formula. Press PLAY already. Let’s light your fire. It’s time.

How To Ditch The Drama In Your Life

By | Get Your Groove Back | Leave A Comment

If your life isn’t working the way you want it to, there’s a pretty good bet you’re part of the problem. I know that sounds harsh, but I’m here to give it to you straight. So let’s talk straight.

If you’re doing drama, you’re creating problems in your life that don’t need to be there. Drama drains your life force. At its essence, drama is a distraction. It asks you to focus on things that don’t matter, creates emotional turmoil, and feeds off of your energy like a parasite. (Gross, right?)

Drama is a self-inflicted wound. It’s also an addictive cycle that keeps you depleted, stuck, and spinning around in a dark little vortex, feeling sorry for yourself, making people uncomfortable, and destroying your dreams.

I want you to stop it. (For real. Knock it off. You’re better than that.)

I wish I could tell you I know so much about drama because I’m a life coach. (And that does help.) But the truth of the matter is a little more uncomfortable than that. I know drama because I used do drama. (On like an epic scale.)

Because I’ve lived the drama cycle, I know that it does much more than just keep you stuck. Drama HURTS. When you’re in it, you feel anxious, unhinged, angry, and upset. You obsess. You stew. You play out little scenes in your mind where you really let so-and-so have it. (I used to run movies in my head.) At times it can even feel like you’re coming out of your own skin.

You don’t have to feel this way anymore.
Empowered women don’t do drama. You’re on the path to becoming an empowered woman, so let’s ditch that drama of yours, okay? In this week’s episode of GrooveTV I’m gonna show you how in 3 simple steps. Press PLAY already, and leave your drama in the dust. (Seriously, can you hear Mary J?) Read More
