463: How To Gain Power With A Proactive Pause

8/3/2020
I know I’m not the only one who has experienced a massive regression into reactive tendencies during this wild season of life... Look, I pride myself on being proactive instead of reactive. I coach on this. I thought I had it LOCKED DOWN.

Something I’ve been testing lately - with much...

461: When Glennon Came To Visit

7/27/2020
Two weeks ago, Glennon Doyle Zoom bombed a Momentum Mamas meeting while we were talking about her book, Untamed. To say we were surprised and delighted would be a huge understatement. I was almost speechless. And sweating profusely. She was everything I hoped she would be: funny, humble, raw, brutally honest, and wise as hell. She spoke about why the pain must come before the rising and how revelations make necessary space for revolutions. While I have never shared our membership...

457: There Is No Going Back To Normal. Thankfully.

7/13/2020
What if the beauty of a revolution is that you don’t get to “go back to normal” afterward? Living through a pandemic and a cultural revolution in the same few month period has caused a massive shift. A much needed shift, in so many ways. A shift that is providing hope - if we commit to doing better moving forward. This is not to say there have not been losses and traumas to grieve during this time. The losses have been profound. But, there has also been new levels of awareness and...

455: 3 Steps To Create Core Values You Can Confidently Commit To

7/6/2020
A few years ago I was at a workshop for business owners and we had to create a list of our core values. We were given a list of 40 or so values to choose from and had to narrow it down to our top 5. I couldn’t do it. I cried. It took me longer than anyone else in the room to narrow my list down to just a few core values I wanted to commit to. The process of discernment around this brought up a lot of emotion around why certain things are important to me. It forced me to look at myself,...

453: 5 Small Steps to Build Big Courage

6/29/2020
Practicing courage is a lifetime of showing up and taking small, uncomfortable steps. Sometimes things work out for you. Sometimes they don’t. Sometimes the rewards are quick and amazing and so gratifying. Sometimes it’s all really messy and ugly and painful. Regardless, for many of us (all of us?), routinely practicing courage is the only way to continually become more of the person we aspire to be. Am I right? When I think of who I am becoming, all I see in front of me is a series of...

If there has ever been a time to persist, it is now. Persistence leads to change and growth and evolution and POWER. And...there is no denying that persistence is hard. It can be overwhelming, exhausting, and feel so relentless. It is all those things, but that doesn’t make it impossible. In our fatigue, it’s easy to lose track of the importance of what we are working toward. To stay persistent we must give ourselves permission. Permission to: Do better Commit Take imperfect...

I think it’s safe to say that 2020 has broken many (all?) of us over and over. A friend recently introduced me to the idea of being antifragile, based on the work and book Antifragile: Things That Gain From Disorder by Nassim Nicholas Taleb.

Primarily, she works with biz owners to help them find their voice (or, as she calls it, uncover their biznality) so that marketing and talking about their business feels like a natural extension of themselves vs an out-of-body experience.

445: Mastering Pandemic Decisions: Postpone, Pivot or Repurpose?

6/1/2020
In the last 3 months, we have had the opportunity to postpone, pivot, and repurpose nearly every aspect of our lives - over and over again. It has been hard, heavy, confusing, and disorienting to say the least. But 12 weeks in, I’d say we have begun to master these shifts. We are able to take a critical look at the opportunities in front of us each day and assess: “Is this a time to postpone, pivot, or repurpose.” I know these decisions are becoming more clear for me, as I make them over...
