You made it!
We’re officially one month into 2022, and the pressure for a “new year, new you” is finally starting to float away.
And you know what? This is when the real fun begins.
If you’ve been feeling like you need to do more and may “already be behind” then you’re really going to want to read this.
I’ve said it before and I’ll say it again: You’re exactly where you need to be. 💯 It’s so easy to get caught up with what everyone else is doing. To compare your chapter one with someone else’s chapter ten.
If this sounds like you, it could be a sign that it’s time for you to get on TikTok. 🤣 (Come find me there!)
Or it could be a sign that you need to change your CONSUMPTION HABITS.
The thing about social media that people often forget is: you have complete control over what you consume, and HOW you consume it.
You are the boss of your life. You make the rules.Over the recent weeks and months, I’ve been reflecting a lot on these questions:
(Because if you read my last email, you know I’m all about how it feels vs. how it looks.)
And the truth is, no one gets to decide how I answer these questions but me.
I’ve recently made a big shift in the way I consume…
I’ve gotten super particular about WHO I allow into my thoughts, my heart, and my social media feeds.
Don’t get me wrong, I’ve had my seasons of over-consumption. Where I’ve been a sponge soaking in teachings from all of the podcasts, all the books, all the freebies, courses, and social media posts.
And let me tell you: It can also lead to massive doubt, overwhelm and confusion.
It messes with your inner peace.
I’ve come to realize that if I truly want to attract more joy, peace and love into my life, then I need to get super selective about what (and who) else I allow in. 🔥
Now, I only have a couple of leaders I truly follow: my mentor and Abraham Hicks (if you know, you know).
The messages they share are the only ones I listen to, because they bring me into alignment with my truth.
As a result, I feel completely clear on:
If you only take one thing away from today’s email, I hope it’s this…
It’s time to get really intentional about who you follow, what you’re consuming, and how it’s impacting your life and your business.
Nothing is worth losing your inner peace over.

Let’s put an end to the narrative that success = money, once and for all.
What would happen if you were to let go of the idea that you need to make this your “best year yet” and instead just surrender to what makes you happy?
It’s easier said than done, I know.
But maybe that’s because you’re making it more complicated than it needs to be.
By now you probably know — I’ve never been a big fan of goal setting.
It’s a process often rooted in what you do not have, a desire for control and a lack of worthiness unless you achieve. Over the years I have seen that the less you try to control, the more abundance you attract.
I really only have one goal for 2022: more JOY, more LOVE, more CELEBRATION of life/self.
I believe when I make “joy” my north star, and let go of all other distractions, everything I could ever want or need will come to me.
After all, your dreams wouldn’t have been placed in your heart if they weren’t possible for you.Read that line again…
Do you feel the weight being lifted from your shoulders yet? There’s something so freeing about trusting that everything will unfold so much better than you could have ever imagined, when you find your joy and follow inspired action.
When I reflect on everything I’ve created and achieved in my life, I feel immense gratitude. The little girl in me is screaming in excitement at how far I’ve come.
I’m already living every dream I ever imagined for myself.
At the same time, I know there’s this new level of magic just waiting for me, and I’m so excited to experience what’s coming next.
Even if I don’t know what it is yet.
Even if it means getting comfortable in the discomfort. In the uncertainty. Even when I wish I had all the answers and could figure it all out in advance.
I don’t need to plan every next step or take action on every idea.
It’s less about doing and more about being.
Being open to receiving what’s meant for me.
This is when the MAGIC happens.

I’m done with creating a list of goals for the new year.
I’m letting go of the idea that I need to check certain boxes off by <this> age or in <this> amount of time in order to be happy.
I’m releasing the societal pressure of achieving the dreams and desires projected upon me.
Instead, I’m choosing to trust the process. I’m focusing on simply finding my joy every day.
I’m living in a state of surrender.
And while it sounds simple in theory, it’s a constant work in progress.
I had a good cry the other day.
I was speaking with my grandmother and she asked me when I was going to have a baby. I could feel the gravity of her expectations. I could hear the disappointment in her voice as she realized her opinions did not align with mine.
But this is my life, and I get to choose how to live it.It’s easy to get caught up in the idea of what you should be doing.
It’s easy to get caught up in the idea of what you should be doing.
You think your business should follow a certain path in order to be successful; your life should look a certain way in order for you to be happy.
And as a result, you end up setting goals based off of what others make you think you should be doing or wanting, instead of what you know in your heart is right.
Suddenly, you’re celebrating your 40th, 50th or even 60th birthday and looking back at what you’ve accomplished so far in your life, only to realize none of it really matters. You don’t actually feel fulfilled, or joyful. Because you spent all these years chasing someone else’s definition of success or happiness instead of creating your own.
I know how it goes, because I’ve been there.
When I first started my business, I was operating in the wounded masculine. I thought I had to be hustling all the time in order to be successful. This was who I was showing up as every day. As a result, this was the energy I was attracting back into my life and my business.
And everything about it felt so heavy and wrong.

Let me ask you something…
When was the last time you walked away from something that you wanted to work?
If that question instantly created a lump in the back of your throat, listen, I get it.
Sometimes the hardest thing to do is to walk away from a relationship or situation that’s no longer serving you.
But it’s also one of the most important steps you can take for your growth – in your personal life and your career.
Usually, the signs are already there. You just have to turn the blinders off in order to see them.
At the end of the day, you don’t get a prize for “sticking it out.” In fact, doing so could actually be detrimental to your relationships, life, business and most importantly, your peace of mind.
For me, I saw this to be true when I broke up with a client.
Holding onto any type of relationship, including working relationships, that are no longer the right fit in hopes it will “get better” is only hurting you and them.
Saying "yes" to one thing is actually causing you to say "no" to something else. Everything has a cost.
I’ve made this mistake myself (more than once, actually).
The story sounded a little something like this: I remember feeling so hopeful something would shift when I took on this client. I saw the potential, and I believed in the possibilities of what we could accomplish together. But if I was being honest with myself, after a few weeks (let alone months), it was clear that they were not ready to do what needed to be done in order to get the outcome they were looking for.
And after six months had passed, nothing had changed. Sound familiar?
Here’s one of the hardest truths to accept: YOU AREN'T HERE TO FIX ANYONE.And it doesn’t always work out as planned.
You may have the best intentions, only to find out it was never the right fit to begin with.
You get to choose where this goes next.
You’re the CEO of your life and business, after all.And this is why it’s essential you don’t get so caught up in the doing, that you forget about BEING…
· Being the leader you know you’re capable of being.
· Being brave enough to connect with your truth and carve your own path.
· Being the business owner you, your team and your clients deserve.
So, if you’ve been looking for a sign that it’s time to let go of that relationship or situation, that’s no longer serving you and your business, this is it.
There’s never going to be a perfect time.
But if you want to continue to grow and evolve into your most joyful, empowered self in 2022, and attract more of the right clients with ease and grace, it starts right now - with letting go of the wrong ones.
If this is resonating and you need more direction, I have good news for you. This is exactly the kind of growth strategy I’m leading students through in LAUNCH YOUR POWER – an online course designed to help you master your impact and step up as a leader in your life (without the stress, overwhelm and anxiety).

Here’s something that probably comes as no surprise…
I love sales.
Or perhaps a more accurate statement would be: I love aligned selling and connecting with others.
To me, sales are about creating opportunities for me to serve my community.
But not everyone approaches selling this way (especially in the coaching industry).
I know this because I’ve been on the receiving end of some pretty gross sales tactics and even ended up in tears! 😢
You know the kind…
Where the “coach” on the other end of the call points out everything you’re doing wrong, fear mongering you into thinking you and your business are going to be a total failure if you don’t invest right now.
This type of sales strategy feels forced and fear-based. It’s rooted in lack mentality.
This is not how I sell, and it’s not how I coach my clients to sell.
I believe you can create a successful business that brings you more time, profit and joy, without actually feeling like you’re selling anything at all.
When you’re selling from a place of alignment and abundance, the sales come with ease.
HERE ARE MY TOP THREE TIPS FOR ALIGNED SELLING:
1. Pretend you’re having a conversation with a friend.
Leave the formalities at the door and just be yourself. Show them you genuinely care about what’s going on in their life and business. Remember, people want to work with people.
2. Bridge the gap between where they are and where they want to go.
While your sales calls don’t need to feel rigid, it does help to have some structure to your process. This helps bring clarity for the person on the receiving end. Ask questions to understand where they are now and what their goals are for the future. Then be honest with yourself: are you the solution? Is this truly the right fit for both of you?
3. Make it easy for them.
If you know you can help them, show them how. Customize your solution to their needs. Give them a small win they can walk away with, to help build trust. If you want to take it a step further, ease their mind by offering a refund policy. Show them you believe in what you can accomplish together, and help them see you’re all in.
4. Be prepared to walk away.
It’s so important to make sure you are unattached from the outcome. When you’re coming from a place of service over selling, it means putting the client first. If you’re not the one who can help them, let them know. And then let them go.
If you’re truly ready to transform the way you approach sales in your business, a VIP Coaching Day could be exactly what you need. We’ll spend the day working through your sales process and addressing any mindset blocks getting in your way. I guarantee you’ll see massive shifts in your business before the end of the year – if you’re ready to do the work.
I can’t wait to help you reach your sales goals.

I have some exciting news to share with you today (and a small favour to ask).
But first, let me ask you this: do you shy away from sharing certain aspects of your life with others because you’re afraid of being judged?
I get it. You hold back from expressing your true thoughts/beliefs/emotions, and as a result, you don’t feel like you are showing up as your authentic self.
You’re tired of pretending and living in fear, and you want to find a community where you feel supported and accepted for who you are.
This is why I created The Ladies Community (TLC). ❤️
I don’t know about you, but there’s something I’ve noticed about Facebook Groups over the years…
They can feel a little toxic. ⚠️
One person posts asking for travel tips for an upcoming trip to Austin, and suddenly there’s a full-on debate about boycotting Texas to take a stance for women’s reproductive rights.
(In case you missed it, the person posting was me. 🙋🏻♀️)
Listen. There’s nothing I love more than seeing women stand up for one another. And I understand how this topic could trigger some people. (Don’t even get me started on the political status of Texas – that’s another conversation for another day).
But why is it that we’re so quick to jump to conclusions and pass judgement from behind the keyboard?
What our world, and especially our community, needs right now is more connection, not division.
This means sharing, commenting and engaging from a place of love and acceptance rather than hostility and projection.
This brings me back to the big announcement I wanted to share with you…
TLC is getting a fresh new look (if you’ve noticed our new cover photo, community description & more to come).
One that resists the cultural celebration of stress, overwhelm and busyness, and instead embraces taking back control of your time and happiness.
TLC is rooted in a global mission to support female-identifying leaders and entrepreneurs in raising your consciousness so you can create a productive life and business filled with joy, meaning and success. But in order to fulfill that promise, I need to know: how can TLC best support you in reaching your goals?
