Recently I've been obsessed with the differences between confidence and self-confidence.
With confidence you look to your past experiences for evidence that you can do something and do it well.
I feel very confident brushing my teeth, pouring a glass of water, driving a car or riding a horse because I have done those things many times before. I have a lot of evidence that supports feeling confident in those areas.
Self-confidence on the other hand is INTERNAL. It’s based on the belief you have about yourself. Self-confidence is an emotion that you generate without any history to back it up or external evidence.
So why does this matter?
Because having a strong belief about yourself and your abilities without evidence to back it up will get you closer to achieving your goals. It will propel you forward as you build your business and continue to...
Are you a wellness entrepreneur? Do you have a business that helps to transform people and makes the world a better place?
Then what do you think is keeping you from making more money?
Do you think...
I could go on and on.
If you are a wellness entrepreneur and you want to grow your business and serve more people and make more money, then read this carefully...
The money you make is a direct result of how much you believe in yourself.

We can’t talk about entrepreneurship without bringing up that four letter word FAIL!
If you’re reading this and you’re an entrepreneur, then I’m going to assume that you know that failure is a good thing.
I’ll assume you know putting yourself out there as a business owner, making mistakes, and learning from them is how we grow as individuals and as entrepreneurs… and it’s also how we grow our businesses.
So I’m not going to share WHY failure is necessary because you already know that. I’m going to talk about failing on purpose.
I learned about the failure file from Ramit Sethi who is the author of I Will Teach You To Be Rich and the book Your Move: The Underdog's Guide to Building Your Business.
Here’s the deal (and any successful entrepreneur will tell you this), if you want to be more successful then you need to double, triple, or quadruple the amount of failures...
A couple of weeks ago I watched a great training session with a powerhouse Master Coach who was coaching other coaches and female entrepreneurs.
This Master Coach makes approximately 18 million dollars a year coaching women on weight loss, and she was speaking with this young woman who is also a coach. This young woman was feeling incredibly frustrated and defeated because her business wasn’t taking off.
At one point during the conversation the young woman said in frustration, “why isn’t all the work I’ve been putting into this business working!?”
And the Master Coach took a moment, and said to her very calmly “Because you haven’t been doing it long enough yet, you need to keep going”
Well that just upset this young woman further, and she said, "ARE YOU KIDDING ME, I’VE BEEN DOING IT FOR FOUR YEARS!!"
And the Master Coach said “For 9 years it cost me more to run my business, than what I got out of it. I went from...
Why is making massive changes in our lives hard to sustain?
We are wired to stay safe. We are wired to survive.
When our “normal” is eating crappy food and drinking too much alcohol, we feel safe. There's a comfort in making those choices because it's what we do on a regular basis.
Then there comes a time when we desperately want to make changes in our lives, but our brain freaks out because we’re stepping outside our safety zone. Maybe it’s losing weight, or quitting smoking, or starting your own business, or cutting back on alcohol, or quitting your job… it’s natural for us to RESIST change.
Intellectually we know making these changes are good for us. We know incorporating healthier lifestyle choices into our lives will in fact help us to survive and live longer… but our brain doesn’t see it that way. All it sees is that we have felt safe eating crappy food and drinking too much wine, so making these changes must be a bad thing....
When You Know Your WHY, You Know Your WAY!
I’ve been talking about knowing your WHY with my coaching clients a long time before Simon Sinek made it popular.
We see the question “what’s your why?” in books, podcasts, motivational talks and workshops. It helps us establish meaning and a purpose behind our drive.
Knowing our WHY also helps us develop a sense of purpose. Studies show that people who feel a sense of purpose make more money, are happier, healthier & more confident, and deal with stress & anxiety more easily.
So here I am, on a 30-day renewal and today is day 9.
Have I slipped a little? Yep! In full transparency, on day 6 and 7 I slipped and didn’t fully stick to my plan. I’m back on track now, but what I realized is that I didn't get clear on my WHY at the beginning of the 30 days so it was easier to justify cheating.
No one is forcing me to do this 30-day renewal. I can drop it today and forget about it...
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...
Embracing that "everything happens for a reason" can be a tough pill to swallow sometimes. Especially when in those dark hours of deep depression - as was my case a few years ago.
However, once I believed my life could change for the better, much discovery led to recovery and the realization that I could help others.
I was interviewed by Carol Graham, host of the Never Give Up Hope podcast, to discuss my journey and how what happened to me is now fuelling my entrepreneurial spirit, as well as my passion for business and life coaching women.
In this podcast, Kelsey gets interviewed by KC Armstrong, host of WMAP Radio. They discuss challenges and how to bounce back stronger than ever. Kelsey dives into her personal struggles and why she decided to get into the sort of life coaching and health coaching that supports and empowers women.
Manifest. How huge is this buzzword? No doubt you have heard it thrown around a lot. Regardless of its trendiness, I really believe in the power of manifesting and I’m going to tell you why.
Not long ago, over brunch, my friend was telling me that she really believes in the power of manifestation, but her boyfriend doesn’t.
She’s a young writer, and one of her high level goals is to write for the New York Times. It’s a lofty goal, and not an easy thing to achieve, especially being Canadian. So when her boyfriend was in New York for work, she asked him to bring her home a copy of the newspaper so she could display it in her house and have it act as a symbol to help her make her dream come true.
She was a bit shy in telling me all this because she didn’t know how I would react,...
