Before branching out with my own business, I spent over 10 years in the office products industry developing consumer products. In fact I worked for my family’s business and was planning to take over the company in the future with my siblings. But funny how plans usually have more twists and turns then you anticipate…. It was the desire to help people on a more personal level that led me from the corporate world to my work with small businesses. Although my career and life goals changed, my work in office products truly shaped and developed my love for the aesthetic and branding, the need to always provide a superior customer experience and it is where I honed my 1:1 management skills, by working with co-workers, customers and outside vendors. As someone who works with online businesses, my clients vary dramatically at times, but my #1 love is to work with coaches – life, business, career, leadership. Why you may ask? Well, the work that coaches facilitate is so deeply personal to me. They are the people that pulled me from a really bad professional and personal situation. (Remember how I said I worked for my family’s business, well unhappiness at work quickly invaded all aspects of my life.) My life coach made me see that I had amazing talents to share with the world. And here I am today… loving my work again! When not providing amazing client care (and performing the occasional magic trick or two), you can find me taking a stroll with my super supportive husband and our two rescue pups, catching a Gilmore Girls or Kitchen Nightmares marathon, or geeking out over all things organization.

Stop Going It Alone (+ Are You Missing Out?)

Later this summer, I’ll hit the 5-year mark in my business. Yes, my business is my name. And there’s the appearance that I’m doing it all on my own. But I didn’t do it alone. To get to where I am today, which is intensely joyous, deeply grateful and blowing my own mind at every damn turn, I purposefully put supports into place to help along the way. A business coach.A leadership coach.Multiple masterminds of similarly driven business owners.A lovely assistant who has my back.A super small circle of trusted friends.A roster of badass clients who care about me as […]

Do You Really Want a Sexy Business?

I recently stumbled upon this quote from Greek philosopher Aristotle, “We are what we repeatedly do. Excellence, then, is not an act, but a habit.” I don’t usually seek out quotes and I’m honestly not into philosophy either. Yes, I enjoy a good philosophical quandary on The Good Place, but I pretty much glossed over the subject in school (each and every time). When I randomly happened upon it, I immediately loved the quote. And was equally surprised by the source. What struck was how true it rang for me. As a business coach, I see this very scenario play […]

Take That Darn Vacation Already – Here’s How!

As the warmer weather is coming (so they say, but I also heard snow might hit next week in my area), I’m reminded of vacationing. Taking time away from the day-to-day to explore new areas of the world, indulge in new surroundings, take advantage of new experiences. I remember my first year in business. I had just come out of wrapping up a full-time job in the corporate world while simultaneously launching my own business. I just wanted a break. A sacred time without client deliverables and emails and blog posts and the daily grind. But I was terrified to […]

The Simplest Way to Get Stuff Done in Your Day

I was recently brought in as a guest expert for a mastermind of business owners to answer any and all of their business operations questions. That’s right; for 90 minutes, the coaches, writers, and creative professionals presented their burning questions about structuring their days, how to work with their teams, what pieces of technology to use, how to manage their inboxes and so much more goodness. Even though the call was at the very end of my day, I left feeling a deep sense of gratitude for these women. The group was delightful. So open and receptive to learning more […]

Systems = Money for YOU

I’m going to cut right to the chase today, dear Reader.  I want to tell you the story of a client, Lena. She’s a life coach for mompreneurs. She loves her work. She loves her clients. She doesn’t love asking people for money. More accurately, Lena hates invoicing clients. Like with the same “let’s do this and change your life” positive passion that she brings to her work, but it’s a “nope, this is not my thing” level of dislike for invoicing. On our call, I asked her about a client who started working with her a few weeks back […]

Is Connection Hurting Your Business?

I mentioned before that I use an Apple Watch. I love how it allows me to be alerted of reminders and set timers and communicate with my client teams. It keeps me in the know. It keeps me connected. It allows me the time to jump fully into a task without checking the clock because I know the timer will go off exactly when I set it to, and I won’t be late for that client session. Funny enough, I resisted getting an Apple watch for many months. Now it’s one of those devices that has me saying, “How did […]

The Key to Solve All Your Problems

You know when you have a project or a vision but can’t quite get things to click into place? Not even enough to get the ball rolling? Maybe you saw yourself assuredly delegating tasks to your assistant. But then realize you don’t trust her to fix any mistakes. Or you felt yourself effortlessly lead that mastermind workshop. Only to realize you have nothing to say as you plan the workshop outline. Or just maybe, it was the cool, confident way you handled that sticky client issue during the last session. And then you remember “cool” and “confident” just aren’t you. […]

How to be a Better Coach in 1 Simple Step

You’ve heard that it’s important to use your client’s exact words in your marketing because it’s a signal to that person that you know exactly what problem they have and what they really want most in their lives. You’re saying, “I understand and I can help,” to that person. But, what about the language you use once that person becomes a client? Why do we refrain from using jargon in our marketing activities but fall right back into the habit of expert speak when we’re working with a client? Because the thing is, if a client isn’t following along during […]
