Someone recently asked me if I work with “newbies.” She assumed that I didn’t.
I work with some newbies, but it’s deeper than that.
I’m not the person who works with people with a Plan B. I’m the person who works with people who are dedicated to building a business.
Plan B isn’t so bad. It’s usually the responsible path. The path of least resistance (at first glance anyway.)
It’s usually the path that we hope will make everyone happy, including ourselves.
I will be sharing the stage with Elizabeth Gilbert next month in Seattle at an event called Connect: Transform What Really Matters hosted by Darla LeDoux.
My eyes leak a little when I really think about this. I’m delighted, honored, and so excited to share my message about Courage.
This book has changed my life. I’ve recommended it to hundreds of people and bought for close to a dozen people. Listening to it is my favorite – it’s just Liz and I doing the dishes or running errands.

Unity. Kindness. THIS is who we are.
Today marked the inauguration of the new US President.
Exhale fear. Return it to sender with consciousness attached.
Expand your energy…bigger. bigger. Expand.
Remember that fear (and narcissists) will do everything possible to convince you that you are helpless and broken.
Here’s the truth: you have the ability and power to create. WE the people create change.
We stand for unity. We stand for kindness. We stand for equality. THIS is who we are.
We’ve felt it haven’t we? The shifts. The shadow. The discomfort. The awakening.
I haven’t known quite what to say yet regarding recent world events – the elections, Standing Rock, shootings, the division, and that’s just in the US. A few days after the election results came in, I was relieved to travel to Australia to speak at an event of over 150 SOULpreneurs.
My heart was able to heal a little so I could get grounded before I spoke out of pure fear, anger, or sadness. I was embraced by the most nurturing and kind people in Melbourne – thank you to Rachael Jayne Groover for the opportunity.
When people ask me why I focus on working with mostly women, I used to apologize because I feel really bad when people are left out and I didn’t want to leave out men. #ilovemen
I stopped apologizing a couple of years ago, but my energy still shrunk.
And now I don’t apologize.
I do work with men, and most of the people who are attracted to my work are women. I no longer say “Ignite, the women’s conference.” Ignite is my 3-day event for soulpreneurs. I don’t care if you have boy parts or girl parts, if you aren’t an asshole and you really want to change the world, then you are welcome.
I remember when my friend Priscilla said, “I’m done chasing the dream, so I choose to LIVE it instead.” That was a couple of years ago and I still think about it because it went straight into my heart.
I could so relate with that, considering the path of burning down my business in 2012. Why? Because I was chasing a dream..that wasn’t even mine. It’s what I thought I SHOULD want.

What does chasing the dream look like?
Well, here’s just one of many examples I can share:
