5 Things Making Me Happy

I’m not going to lie to you, the last few months have been brutal. California is being ravaged by lightning storms and fires, I’m anxious about the state of the world, and our country, and the upcoming election, we’re adjusting to distance learning and working from home on top of each other, and don’t even […]

Redefining Having It All

What does “having it all” mean to you? I love this question because it forces you to hone in on what feels important and essential to you as an individual and clarify your core values. Values-clarification is a huge part of what I do in my virtual programs, and my one on one business mentorship, […]

10 Things Helping Me Through This Hard Time

2020, am I right? I think I’m still in a bit of shock over everything that’s happened this year. I rallied hard the first few months while sheltering in place, and now I cry at most commercials, and sometimes break down at the dinner table. I know there are others who are dealing with much […]

The Power of Incremental Change

I started this month tired, anxious, and worried about the future, the health of the people I love, and the safety and lives of black people in this country. With the world feeling so scary, and not feeling confident that I know what I should be doing (much less what to tell anyone else to […]

What Minimalism Is and Isn’t

I have built my business (and entire life) around the concept of doing, and having, less, but better. My philosophy has been informed and inspired by the minimalist movement and ethos, however, as a busy working mom who happens to love pretty things, I have customized a minimalist philosophy that works for my real life.

5 Things Making Me Happy

I have been hearing from so many people that they are feeling an intense pressure to “take advantage” of this time at home and be wildly productive. If you’re feeling a wee bit overwhelmed by the voices in your head and the nine billion self-improvement classes, meal prep courses, and How-to-Pivot-Your-Business classes, cluttering up your […]

Where to Start?

It’s a strange and disorienting time. So many of us have suddenly found ourselves working at home, juggling kids who are off school, and trying to check things off our lists while staying safe and sane. It’s a juggle to say the least. For those of you who feel like you have the bandwidth to […]

When Things Feel Beyond Our Control

It’s an intense time in the world – many of us have been forced to cancel plans, work from home, and be flexible with upcoming events and social outings. It feels disorienting.
