Homecoming

Do you choose a theme for the year? My theme for the year is Homecoming. When I reflected on what I wanted 2021 to be like for me, I kept coming back to the idea that I wanted to really feel like I was sinking into myself. I want to show up as myself 100%I […]

Slow down, to go fast

Happy New Year! I’ve been using January to ease myself back into this year. For me, the new year kinda kicks off in February, which I admit, is not typical. The way I approach the start of the year — and goal setting in general if I’m being honest — is completely counterproductive to what is shoved […]

Kamala Harris

I keep thinking about Kamala Harris’ performance during the Vice Presidential debate last week. It was such a familiar scene. A woman of color who is clearly the smartest and most qualified person in the room but has to bend over backwards to showcase her confidence and her expertise in the most delicate way possible, […]

Entrepreneur Anniversary

I saw a Facebook memory this week reminding me that 9 years ago, I walked into my manager’s office and put in my two week notice. 9 years ago, I took the ultimate chance on myself and my dreams and my vision. 9 years ago, I quit my corporate job and never looked back. The […]

Are You Talking Yourself Out Of Joy?

Have you ever consciously made the decision to not get too happy, too comfortable, too “fill-in-the-blank” simply because IF something happened you didn’t want to be disappointed? Example: Let’s say you’re up for a promotion at work. Instead of allowing yourself to be excited and think about the possibilities, you squash those feelings of excitement so […]

Put It On A Post-It

There’s this thing I do. I write reminders to myself on Post-It Notes. I’m not talking about what I need to grab at the store, or my to-do list. I write down badass notes to myself.Notes that reaffirm Greatness. Joy. Soul-stirring Adventure. Then I place them in the most random places, so when I least […]

There’s No Such Thing As Balance

‘How do you balance it all?’ Women get asked this question all the time. If you’re ambitious, high-achieving, are a wife and/or mother and look even remotely put together, people ask you this question as if you have some magic formula locked away. I won’t even get into why men aren’t asked this question. How […]

Dreams

Have you ever had a dream that was burning inside of you, but for some reason you couldn’t get it out? Maybe you were too busy or didn’t feel ready. Whether it was internal or external, something was always there preventing you from moving forward on your heart’s desire. I’ve been there.And I’ve been annoyed […]
