Ep. 219: Fear vs. Intuition and the power of a Social Media Sabbatical

This week, I'm diving into a long-asked-for topic: how to tell the difference between fear, intuition, and the voice of the inner critic.

Ep. 218: The Problem with Good "Advice"

How do you handle conflicting advice from all those smarty-pants influencers on the internet? And what do you do when trying to follow said advice ends up with you at the bottom of a tailspin of overwhelm, fatigue, and feelings of definitely-not-enoughness? I've got you covered in this week's episode where I share how I'd love for you to approach managing this advice, why there's nothing wrong with you, and why success formulas often fall flat! Oh, and you'll also hear me talk about:...

Ep. 215: 3 Things You Don't Know about My Business

When it comes to online business, it's easy to make assumptions about what you think is going on behind the scenes based on what you see publicly.

Ep. 213: The "Going Hard" Aftermath

Ever wonder if you're the "right" kind of creative or if you're doing your creative endeavors the way you should?

This week, I'm diving into the question of what it means to do creativity the "right"...


Ep. 210: The Sneaky Side of Fear

Fear. It's real and sometimes it's loud. But what about those times it's *not* so loud? And what about those times that fear is in control of our actions and we don't even realize it?

This week, I'm diving into three specific stories I've told throughout my life (one very recently!) and looking at what impact telling them has had on what I believe about myself.

Can you slowly and gradually shift a habit or do you have to go all in? Is it possible to actually change something about yourself that you've believed to be true your whole life? How do you know when a change is necessary or when it's antithesis to the person you really are? And, then, if you are ready to try out the change, where do you even start?

Ep. 201: On Anxiety

Let's talk about anxiety and real life and what happens when you make a bold move toward something you really want and it's *still* hard. This week, I'm taking you through the inner workings of my brain and sharing my recent experience with purchasing a home in Colorado and how that kicked up my anxiety BIGTIME.
