Reidentification at any age is hard. But for those of us in our 50s and beyond, your regret can sometimes stop you from becoming your best possible self.
Have you ever felt this way?
However, there are those rare times when someone walks into your life and reminds you that it's never too late to tap into your zone of genius.
My client, Andrea Daniels, CEO of Brightside Referrals, found her lane over 12 years ago and has been tapping into her niche ever since.
In this week's episode, we sat down and talked about how asking for a little help (from me) changed her perspective and why there is no better time than now (in her 50s) to scale and grow her business.
As a senior care placement specialist, she will walk you through the process and demystifies what senior living actually is. Her job as a problem solver is to look for ways to find solutions for the next phase of one's life.
You will hear how she and I collaborated in a creative way to take her business to the next...
As an entrepreneur and business builder, it's not uncommon to lose your voice.
Do you struggle with telling your story, sharing your narrative, or explaining what you do and who you help?
Developing your core message at any age is difficult, let alone in your 50s. But, when you are able to tap into your purpose, the storytelling gets a little bit easier.
In this week's episode of the podcast, I am chatting with Zafira Rajan; a narrative brand strategist and storytelling guru. As a personality-driven copywriter, she helps her clients find their voice and uncover their creativity through the writing process.
She teaches that sharing the quirky stuff matters. And in doing so, one is able to get more vulnerable in sharing the stuff that makes them extraordinary and unique.
By the end of this interview, my hope is that you will have a few more tools in your toolbox to unblock your voice and start a righting ritual that will reclaim your creativity.
Here are a...
Do you remember the game, follow the leader?
I can almost see my 7-year-old self, marching in a line, following every move that the "leader" was telling me to do.
When I started to scale my business and add digital products, group experiences, and outside opportunities, I spent a lot of time listening and following those that have done it before me.
Because they had been financially successful( or so they say), I thought that they had all the answers. The truth is, I already had all the answers inside of me but didn't see them or have the confidence to believe them. It took me a while to follow my gut and when I did, that's when everything shifted.
I am privileged to be able to talk to lots of people who are either simply thinking about an idea, expanding what they already have, or starting from scratch and I have learned, that there is no one formula, blueprint, or recipe for how one gets to where they want to go.
In this week's podcast episode, I will...
Here are a few key takeaways.
Creating order out of chaos is liberating
Is your computer a mess?
A cluttered computer can be challenging to navigate. Thus keeping those random photos, downloaded pDFs, recipes, and important documents tidy and organized is key to both your creativity and productivity.
In today's episode, "Get Your Shit Together," I am giving you bite-sized actionable tips you can take and apply to build your digital filing cabinet.
These simple tips will inspire you to clean and organize your computer so you have the confidence to use your machine in a way that serves you.
Here are the 5 tips you can expect to learn:
Build the structure first
Identify the different pillars or "drawers" of your life
Pick one topic and one topic only
Purge and merge
Create your labeling system
Being a systems girl myself, there's one thing I've learned, it's that having some simple systems in place not only helps me with clarity but also leaves lots of room for growth and creativity. Whether you are building a business or not,...
It's so easy to get caught up in all that noise, especially as a creative, solopreneur, and business builder.
And it's even easier when you are surrounded by a group of like-minded humans (a.k.a. one of my masterminds) who were all plotting and planning a strategy around their black Friday offerings. But after two weeks of marinating what this could look like, I realized that I have never ever bought anything on black Friday. I was struggling with offering something that simply did not align with the how and the who I want to collaborate.
Instead of following the leader, I made a decision to stay with my integrity and scrap the whole idea.
It's not just the offer itself. The hoops I would have needed to jump through in order to unhinge that idea would have amassed about 40 hours' worth of behind-the-scenes work.
And when I...
Did you grow up believing that there was only one path to success?
I believed that you:
Went to college
Got a 9-5 job
Nabbed a partner
Start a family
Plan for the future
Balance career and family
Retire and live your best life
For most of us, not the case.
Generally, it doesn't always work as planned.
Most people I talk to are content. Most have gone down something sort of resembling that laundry list above and it’s “good enough.”
For me, life took a turn of events that I would never have seen coming. One after the other; tragedy, loss, and then a cancer diagnosis. I was so angry at the universe and was waiting for it to give me a break
It was this quote that gave me a little mini Ah-Ha moment; “Most millionaires have 7 streams of income.” ~ Tony Robbins.
I always thought being a Jackie of all trades was somewhat of a negative. As a multi-passionate, I...
