Don’t Go So Hard Towards Your Goals That You Forget to Live

“I can help you make six figures in 6 months.” But no one ever asked me if I’d be happy doing what that took. Just like “I can help you lose 20 pounds in 2 months.” But what if the means in which to get there sucks? There was a time in which I was willing to sell my soul …

“HIRE ME SO YOU CAN BE LIKE ME”

Feel familiar? I used to do it all the time. I stalked women on Instagram who I wanted to look like- and for the low cost of my health, sanity, and hormones- I COULD! This is where it gets juicy… I did the same thing for business. I stalked women on Instagram who were biz coaches who had the life …

Word to the Wise: It’s Not About YOU

I know why you’re not getting more clients. You don’t need Facebook ads, flyers, new biz cards, and you definitely don’t need to join a hoity-toity local networking group. You just need to stop focusing on YOU. If you’re in a service based industry in which you help other people in any capacity, your business isn’t about you- it’s about …

My Biggest Fear In Life

My biggest fear used to be getting fat. Everything I did was centered around not gaining a single ounce- no really, EVERYTHING I did. Since I’ve left the vicious cycle of diet culture, I have a new biggest fear: living a passive and reactive life where things feel like they happen TO me instead of FOR me. My biggest fear …

Am I Pretty Enough to Run a Business?

THE WORST BUSINESS ADVICE I’VE EVER RECEIVED: “Make sure you always have makeup on when you’re recording videos. Video is forever! You better make sure you look good.” Uh, I don’t really wear make up, so no thanks? But I was so torn- do I really have to make sure I look pretty enough just to record a video? Am …

Weight Loss is Not a Behavior

The problem is that we associate certain “looks” with certain behaviors. I use my sister (who’s my best friend and whom I love and adore, by the way) as an example often. She always has been and always will be thinner than I am. And there was a long stretch of time where I resented her for it. Now I …

3 Ways To Work Smarter in Your Business Today

I cancelled work for the first time ever to go have fun. Being a business owner is hard, being in the fitness industry is even harder- you’re working when everyone isn’t. This means when your friends and family are off- you’re usually working. I committed to the grind of entrepreneurship years ago- and hung my hat proudly on my “no …

Pursuing Weight Loss Was Making Me Sick

I was never sicker than when I was pursuing weight loss. My body has taken many shapes over the years. It’s been bigger, smaller, leaner, stronger, bigger again, smaller again… But I was never sicker than when I was obsessed with whatever shape or size I was. I’d pull two-a-days, I worked through injury and pain, I starved myself, then …

Awareness Is the First Step to Change But It Isn’t THE Change

“When am I going to start feeling like I’m living my life? Like… intentionally participating in my life instead of just feeling like I’m on the sidelines of my life going through the motions?” I asked my therapist that a few weeks ago. I knew the answer and I was fully aware of the problem… Awareness is *only* the first …
