Hard conversations are just a part of life. They’ll come up in our relationships with partners, with kids, with our friends, and even with ourselves. So of course they come up in business, too: with contractors, employees, clients… you name it! But instead of avoiding conflicts and all of the scary stories we tell ourselves about…

Have you ever had an experience with a business or salesperson that made you feel tricked, blindsided, or otherwise icky? Like an acquaintance who invites you over for dinner, and then wants you to buy a bunch of Tupperware? I had one of these experiences recently with a shop owner who had over-the-top and, frankly, rude sales tactics….

When you hired your accountant, or your cleaner, or even your masseuse, was it pretty clear what you were going to get? How much it was going to cost? It should be – most service professionals can describe their services and prices succinctly and directly, with no extra frills or apologies or caveats.

Coaches should be no different….

It’s so discouraging when you have an idea you’re really excited about and someone else dismisses it out of hand. It’s hard enough to get up the courage to share our biggest, most innovative ideas with other people – and even harder to hear them laugh about it, or say it’s impossible, or look at you like you’ve got a screw loose.

I just wrapped up one of my Ask for Everything challenges, and I’m feeling floored and inspired by the results this group has generated. I do this challenge a couple of times a year, and I’m always blown away by what people can get and achieve when they’re willing to ask for what they want.

Many of us are afraid to ask for what we…

When it comes to your business, your income, or your financial security, answer this: Are you waiting for someone to come rescue you? I know you’re a strong, independent coach, but even strong, independent people can say and do things in a way that makes it clear they want a White Knight to swoop in and save them from…

Have you ever had a business experience that was totally…creepy? Like a pushy, icky, or sleazy experience?
Like, for instance, a friend invites you over to her place for brunch, and you’re like “Yaaaaaaas!”
But then, there’s a TWIST! Once you step inside her house, you realize…She wants to sell you Tupperware or sex toys…

Summertime is prime relaxation time for many of us. I even have a client that purposefully downshifts her business in the summer so she can really lean into chilling out, spending quality time with loved ones, and all the other good things summer provides. This intentional scaling back is really different from what I see a lot of…

Y’all know how I feel about diets. They don’t work, they distract you, and they keep you from living your best life now. And they usually require you to rely on willpower to change yourself, which creates a dangerous cycle: diet, fail, feel weak and powerless, and start the whole thing again. Yuck.

A lot of business advice in…

We’ve explored the many reasons why women earn less than men in the past three episodes, but today we’re taking a different angle. Today I want you to ask yourself: What’s the true cost of earning less? I don’t just mean financially – I mean, what is it costing you in terms of your relationships? Your quality of life? Your…

There are a whole bunch of reasons why women often have less money than men: they’re frequently earning less to begin with, undercharging for their services, carrying more debt, and being funneled into lower-paying jobs. But, another huge factor is that women tend to invest less than men, and therefore miss out on the big returns…

In addition to coaching clients one-on-one and running masterminds and doing my podcast and all the other jazz that I do, I also lead retreats in Italy.

With each retreat, my goal is to go completely over-the-fucking-top. Fresh flowers in
every bedroom. Glam photo shoots in an ancient castle. Home cooked meals prepared
by an…
