If you’re a parent and you run a business from home, it can often feel like your attention is being pulled in a million different directions.  Remembering pajama day at school, scheduling calls with clients, managing your own team, and getting everyone out the door in the morning is enough to make anyone feel overwhelmed. And that’s…

Picture…the most wonderful lifestyle upgrade you can imagine. Egyptian cotton sheets on your bed. A jacuzzi in the backyard. Oprah moves into the house next door and invites you over for homemade banana bread every Sunday because you’re her #1 favorite neighbor. Your life is never the same. You’re on a new level.
I recently got…

Sometimes I cry when I watch somebody going all-in on a performance, whether it’s Beyoncé crushing it onstage, Serena Williams winning another Grand Slam, or somebody else demonstrating an unfailing commitment to their craft. It’s so incredible to watch someone truly show up and kick ass. And we can learn a lot from these people: an…

Are you playing it safe?
In your life—and in your business—are you keeping things neutral and bland? Are you diluting your opinions? Are you treading hyper-cautiously to avoid offending anyone?

Writing a book is a huge accomplishment in itself – it takes time, dedication, and pushing your creative boundaries. But getting that book published, either on your own or with a traditional publisher, takes all that and more.

I’m embarking on a book tour for my own book, Bare, which is my second book and the first I’ve had…

It might feel like it’s hard to differentiate yourself in the coaching business, but that’s partly because so many coaches get stuck in vanilla-land. I love you coaches, but you have to put your true self out there – in your copy, your offerings, and your social media – if you want to attract awesome clients who really want to…

Life coaching has been around for a while now – before the internet was even invented! – and, like most industries, it’s changed with the times. Before, coaches would mostly meet with people 1-on-1, like a therapist does. Now, there are so many ways to connect with clients that it can all seem a bit overwhelming: webinars, social…

When you have a super happy client, you have no doubt about it: they sing your praises on social media, talk about you to their hairstylist, and brag about you to basically everyone they know. They express gratitude and awe about how well you get them and how much you helped them in bringing their dreams to life. These are some of…



Imagine you have a huge break for your business – something like being featured on Oprah’s book list, or getting a social media shoutout from another huge celebrity about how great your offerings are. You’d be thrilled of course, but you’d quickly be inundated with requests from other people, too. Would you have the capacity to…

If you’re an entrepreneur, you’ve undoubtedly seen an Instagram post or Facebook update from another entrepreneur at the beach, in a rainforest, or in some other crazy cool place working on their laptop. This is such a common and misguided trope about what it’s like to be an entrepreneur. And who would want to work at the beach,…

We all have passions beyond our main business, even if we absolutely LOVE what we do every day. But most of us buy into the common refrain, “Focus on one thing, and get really good at it.” This isn’t bad advice, but it might be holding you back from enjoying all the things you’re good at.

If you’re a multi-passionate person,…

A few months ago, I got the opportunity to interview a BOSS named Nicole Walters. She’s an entrepreneur and business expert with an impressive list of accolades.
