How Can I Help You?


I'm back. 

Wherever you've been, off in that creative and beautiful mind, on an exciting trip, diving deep into healing or thrown deep behind-the-scenes of a new program launch, I hope that you have had very real (and long) moments of feeling back…

Are you back?

  • In this season of life, are you feeling that you've landed back in your purpose?
  • Landed back into what really light's you up, and, therefore, what "business" will continue to be about for you?
  • Back to giving yourself more permission to express your true self, not just via your blog or on social media, but with all of your most important relationships?

In short, are you coming back to yourself and feeling even more you, even more honest and true to the person that matters most ~> you?

As I ramp back up from my most recent loss, this is what I've been diving into, a coming back to self. (For those of you who are new, it may not be what you expect to learn about in a business newsletter, however, when it's a part of my life, it's also a part of my business: I lost my Mom unexpectedly three months ago, and also lost my 22-year-old brother, unexpectedly, two years ago. The winds of change…).

And, in ways, I do feel — back:

~ Back and ready to share around what you need most support with in your businesses and brand expressions.

~ And back to, generally, give this life all that I got.

I do have a lot to give, and I know you do too.

So…how do we continue being the givers and the livers, the person who lives life to the fullest? (Sorry, I don't mean to make you think of liver pate :-).

So here's the thing that grief forces you to look at straight in the face ~> we can give more fully of who we are, be most generous of spirit and of greatest service when we have made time to give to self…to reflect, sit in stillness and, generally, make our enlightened no's a must.

Have you made saying no a must lately in your business and in your life? Have you been reflecting daily and weekly on what's working and not working for you? Have you made time to sit in stillness knowing there's as much creativity and strength in it, as there is in the drive you have to build am empire?

Over the last three months, I have re-designed what feels like my entire life and business:

I've tweaked my business model, changed my program launch plans, taken myself off of countless newsletter lists, further refined my weekly schedule and what types of activities I focus on during weekends, as well as let my team and family know, in no uncertain terms, how much self care and stillness will continue to be folded into it all…

I was pretty good at it before and, let it be known, that I will be exceptional at it now. Join me. Let's be exceptional at reflecting more often, at giving generously of our enlightened no's and at being more still, so we can really hear the space between the words and meet our most cared for self.

It's such a gift when we give to ourselves and are able to support others even more fully as a result.

So there it is.

Be exceptional at coming back to yourself and continue the exploration process by asking yourself: what may I need to tweak in my life and business so I'm expressing my true brand of woman?

What does my brand need to express that hasn't been expressed yet?

How does your marketing need to change or evolve to feel most like you?

What might you need to fold into your offerings so they include not just what you think will sell, but what will shine and most serve you?

As I shared with my Mom Mogul Success Society clients last month, success has many definitions and every week, every month and every year, we need to ask ourselves, once again, what our own definition really is. At different seasons, we have different versions of success and we need to base what we do (or don't do) based on that very definition.

Allow your current version to come front and center to really take care of you today. That's what true success does…it takes care of you.

Forget what others have told you success is, come back to yourself and make decisions based on what you, deep down inside, truly feel.

Today, my definition of success is based on how still I can be while still also getting after my passions, goals and serving some of the best clients around the world. (For those of you reading this — you are some of the favorite parts of my days).

Life and entrepreneurship call us to create and do every day, more and more in line with our values, however, the problem is that we're too busy to listen, most days. Today, however, I'm listening rather intently.

Which brings me to this. In the spirit of being back, really listening as well as doing things differently, I'd love to ask how I may best support you in my giving and sharing via my virtual love notes (aka newsletters)?

What are your most pressing questions around creating a meaningful business, while still having a life? To creating consistent income? What part of your authentic brand is yet to be figured out? What are your biggest obstacles as far as your expression is concerned?

Seize the moment — let me know! I'll be choosing a few of the most common themes and will reply with my Success and Brand Coach hat on.

Until we connect again, Creative Heroine, I wish for you, your own moments of radical (yet simple) stillness.

Here's to meeting the self whose way better equipped to serve, lead and guide with full heart because she's given herself the gift of time…

To your enlightened no's!

Life is good,






p.s. Just post your comments below and let me know what's on your mind, as far as branding, expression and authenticity (or similar) are concerned. I'll be looking forward to hearing from you!

My Mom’s unexpected passing (where I’ve been and what I’ve been thinking)


I have been quiet for a little while now.
Over a month ago, I lost unexpectedly lost my Mom. As many of you who have followed my journey the last two years, you also know that I lost my baby brother unexpectedly in a car accident two years ago.
Talk about an avalanche of change in the last 24 months. As you can imagine, these two physical losses are heartbreaking. I wouldn't be being honest if I didn't also tell you that that they have also broken me open in the most positive way. New ways, in fact, that I’m uncovering every day.
I’ve lost (physically) but I know that I have and will continue to gain a new (emotional and spiritual) perspective, everyday that I stay open.

Specifically, I know that I will gain a new and even deeper way to love, to serve and to transparently share.
In this time that I haven’t been communicating with you, I’ve gone inside, and in many ways, looked up. You could say I’ve looked up for guidance around how to best heal. I miss my Mom and Dino terribly! (The photo above was taken at our family home just two months ago before she passed).
Life will look up as I continue to look up. Thankfully this is just the kind of woman my Mom was and is also what she passed onto me…

One thing I know that helped me begin to heal from losing my baby brother was serving others (acceptance was met somewhere at the intersection of helping others and taking time to be still and also help myself).

I remember sharing this with my Mom many times over the last two years. She would ask me how I was “doing it” and this was almost always my answer: supporting and serving others.

One thing I will forever be grateful for is following each other’s grief journeys so closely. She was my confidante and I was hers, and for that, I am extremely grateful! Where there is love there is life, and, there is still so much love between us.

As happens with tragic or unexpected deaths, I haven’t made sense of it all yet, of course, but, I want to share as much as I can. Why? Because we can't do it alone (we aren't meant to do it alone) AND writing is my medicine. (It is great medicine).

You may follow my ongoing sharings on my personal Facebook page HERE.

I trust that pieces of what I share will support you on your journey of change. Because, as humans, the truth is that we are all on a journey of change…
Lastly, as always, I am acutely aware that in order to create your most powerful authentic brand as a woman, you must work, everyday, to create yourself. And sometimes this can come from allowing things, such as death, to show us how to live today, REALLY live, today.

If you have a choice. Choose really living today.

So, that's where I am at the moment. I'm happy to be back sharing with you. Thank you. Sending you all my love.

Life will look up as you continue to look up…

I'll be in touch again soon.

Life is good,

The lessons given at my 2-day retreat (INSIDE)

Today I leave for a week to Cannes, France and I’m counting my blessings. (And though I’m definitely excited for the holiday/trip, counting my blessings has actually very little to do with leaving to Cannes, France for a week). :-)
I’m on a high coming off of a two-day retreat with the Mom Mogul Success Society Mastermind. My clients and what happened at the retreat has completely energized me.

When you do what you love, it energizes you.


What a powerful two days of working on that which helps us to quantum leap in business and in life.

If you would like to quantum leap into your greatest revenue or brand expression potential, I trust hope the following will support you…

How to Claim Your Next Quantum Leap (7 soundbites)

1. Get still. In order to richly evolve a part of us or a part of our business, we must first get still. Getting still enables us to hear and therefore get clear around what we truly want, not what society or others want for us. Once we know what we really want, we can then work our actions, schedule and habits in alignment with those desires. To experience dramatic change, we must be relentless in staying true to our authentic nature and desires.

2. Letting go, not over-thinking. The more we let go of that which weighs us down, the more we can soar.

She let go. Without a thought or a word, she let go.
She let go of the fear.  She let go of the judgments.  She let go of the confluence of opinions swarming around her head.  She let go of the committee of indecision within her. 
She let go of all the ‘right’ reasons. Wholly and completely, without hesitation or worry, she just let go. She didn’t ask anyone for advice. She didn’t read a book on how to let go. 
She didn’t search the scriptures. She just let go.  She let go of all of the memories that held her back.  She let go of all of the anxiety that kept her from moving forward. 
She let go of the planning and all of the calculations about how to do it just right.
She didn’t promise to let go. She didn’t journal about it. She didn’t write the projected date in her Day-Timer. She made no public announcement and put no ad in the paper. She didn’t check the weather report or read her daily horoscope. She just let go.
She didn’t analyze whether she should let go. She didn’t call her friends to discuss the matter. She didn’t do a five-step Spiritual Mind Treatment. She didn’t call the prayer line. She didn’t utter one word. She just let go. No one was around when it happened. There was no applause or congratulations. No one thanked her or praised her. No one noticed a thing. Like a leaf falling from a tree, she just let go. There was no effort. There was no struggle. It wasn’t good and it wasn’t bad. It was what it was, and it is just that. In the space of letting go, she let it all be. A small smile came over her face. A light breeze blew through her.
And the sun and the moon shone forevermore.
~ Rev Safire Rose
3. Authentic Passions. Get as swept up by passion and the devotion for what you do or are offering, as you do the vision of the dollar amount you want to make. Get to know your purpose, your why, and tune into it every single morning before you start thinking about what (the money). The money will come if you honor the depth behind the business.
4. A Miraculous Mindset. It's all true. When we change our thoughts, we change our life. Find the energy you need to push towards that next quantum leap by choosing thoughts that feed you. And, as connected, resist the urge to judge everything that happens in or around you. Judging if something is good or bad depletes us of our life force energy. Drama isn't good for business but daring is…dare to joy more and judge less.
5. Leadership. Accepting your loving leadership or teacher role (we're all here to teach something!) will support you to not only experience the quantum leap you so desire but to “hold” the position once you’re there. Give greatly and remember that being a leader is not about being perfect but more about being human and infusing heart into all you do.
6. Brand Expression. Your brand, the “container” that supports your audacious revenue goals is another all-important element. Being out there consistently with one message and one message only does wonders to experiencing the quantum leap we desire.
7. Revenue Expression. When we are able to create an environment inside of us that not only knows how to create income on demand but that, most importantly, knows her worth at a deep level (hello, abundant wealth/money mindset), we are able to create offerings of true value for those who need them most. Win-win. It's a beautiful thing when you know your worth and you express it by creating offerings that help others experience theirs.

Short and sweet for now, Creative Heroines, because I leave for my flight soon!

Ready, set….leap.

Enjoy your business, enjoy your life!

Life is good,
