I LOVE giving gifts! I love it.
I love thinking about the person I'm buying for... I love shopping for them... I love wrapping gifts, making cards and adding to their holiday experience.
Over the past few years since we moved to New York, our gifting budget has shrunk quite significantly. It's almost non-existent BUT that doesn't mean I still can't enjoy my love of giving gifts.
Here is a fun list of gift ideas I've created that might help you find that perfect gift for someone on your list - even when your budget is a bit tight (and let's be honest... after 2020 that's the case for many of us).
The Campo from BE Outfitter is a hammock, rain poncho, shelter, and ground cover all packed into one incredibly functional and packable product. They also sell amazing backpacks AND there is a 30% discount off the entire site right now.
The Anamaya Cookbook Membership is perfect for people who love to...
What does that mean to you?
I’ve been thinking a lot about this lately as I’ve been shifting my energy and how I spend my days. Normally my days are time blocked from the moment I wake up to the moment my head hits the pillow at night. Meetings, sessions with clients, working out, creating programs, updating websites, meditating, working with my staff, eating, professional development, webinars, social media, writing, shooting videos, going live, family and domestic responsibilities.... ALL the things and more squeezed into a very short day.
That's the way it's been for a long time, but not any more. Over the past several weeks I've:
One of my stories is that nothing ever works out for me.
It’s been playing over and over in my head a lot lately. The voice has been getting louder and louder… especially over the past few years.
If I were to sit down and make a list of all the things that have worked out for me, I’m sure it would take a significant amount of time. It’s not lost on me that throughout my life I’ve achieved a lot and have been very successful. Intellectually I know that I’ve accomplished a lot. I recognize that I’ve had many incredible experiences and I’ve lived an amazing and fulfilling life on so many levels. But my story is that I can’t do anything right… nothing works out for me… why do I even bother. Blah, Blah, Blah!
I KNOW that everything happens for us (and not to us)… I KNOW we create our own realities and circumstances… I KNOW our challenges help us to learn and grow and evolve… I KNOW the...
I learned about them from Dr John Amaral, who studied with and was mentored by Dr Donny Epstein.
The 4 Sacred Seasons are Discover, Transform, Awaken & Integrate.
When you’re in the season of Discover, shit is hitting the fan so-to-speak. Life has thrown you a curve ball and you’re being asked to discover something about yourself that you’ve been avoiding, suppressing, numbing, resisting… all the things we do as humans to evade the stuff in our lives we need to take a closer look at, acknowledge and accept about ourselves or our situation.
Transform is the season when you are full of energy and you take massive action! It’s actually more painful for you to NOT take action in this season. You see the future… the future is now… you set goals and work towards achieving them. You feel invigorated, motivated and excited about what you’re creating so there’s a lot of momentum and action.
I’m tired of feeling like nothing is working.
I’m tired of being sad.
I’m tired of working so fucking hard.
Recently I’ve taken a few things off my plate and will continue to over the next few months. I've sold one of my businesses... I stopped running my Mastermind for Female Entrepreneurs... I've opened up my schedule... I've put a pause on 1:1 coaching... and there will be more changes in the upcoming months.
My focus now will be to wake up every morning, meditate, tune into what I really need to be focusing on… and do THAT.
I will do the thing that I’m guided to do during my morning meditation and journaling practice.
If I receive a message during my meditation that says I need to focus on spending more time with my daughter… I’ll organize my time around THAT.
If I’m guided to write a blog post that day… I’ll do that.
If I get a message that I need to reach out to a specific friend or family member…...
Do you feel like fear has you handcuffed? Do you feel you don’t have what it takes to transform your income, wealth, happiness...and essentially your LIFE?
I keep hearing my clients say “How do I recover from this?!” There is so much stress and uncertainty fueling our fears, so I've recently done a few free trainings on how to uncover your untapped potential in order to increase and amplify your wealth, confidence, happiness, self-love and abundance.
I’ve been on this journey myself for the past decade, and after building multiple businesses, launching dozens of programs, coaching hundreds of women, and transforming thousands of lives… AND from the feedback I received from those free trainings, I decided to create a new 6-month program for women. I know the massive shifts that will happen globally when more women heal their emotional pain, step into their roles as leaders, and align with the higher version of themselves.
Have you ever heard of...
If you run a business, I can tell you, from experience, that you will not run it as well as you could be if your health is suffering.
In this video I share not only what the challenges in my life have taught me, but how I've learned from my regrets and created an incredible life that I'm very grateful for.
How have your challenges sculpted your life?
In this video, we'll check in on your mindset and how it relates to money.
It's so important to get comfortable with being abundant!
I currently run six businesses, and some of those are bringing in six-figures in revenue.
It's not magic... I did not come from a wealthy family... It's taken focus and determination and I'm here to tell you that earning the kind of income you want is totally possible!
All you need is an open mind so take notes and I'm sure what I have to say will serve you in many exciting ways.
Note: This video was part of a series I ran in my free Facebook group The Powerful Womenpreneurs.
I’ve struggled with self-worth issues and insecurities most of my life. I know it’s a common struggle for many people. I was never a part of the “cool crowd” growing up. I was tall and lanky with red hair and freckles, and always felt like an ugly duckling.
Some kids were super smart, others were super cute, there were the naturally cool kids, and the quick-on-their-feet funny kids. I didn’t fit into any of those categories. I was bullied for most of my school career... I was made fun of, lots of name calling, signs on my back, spat on, publicly humiliated, ganged up on, and more. I hated going to school on many occasions. It was a very toxic environment for me.
All that being said, I did have a few very close friends who I’m still tight with today. I moved away from Calgary after College and wanted to start a new journey. I tried to detach myself from the toxicity and moved around a bit. I lived in Vancouver,...
