Be A Woman Who Lifts Up Other Women

Have you ever been in a situation where a “friend” is telling you something another “friend” said about you? Of course, you have… we all have, unfortunately. These types of conversations used to really bother me until I started asking the question: “Why does someone feel comfortable enough around you to talk about me?” If you were really my friend or someone that I can trust, then you should stop the conversation before it gets started. I should never be the topic of discussion because you wouldn’t let that happen.  I have found that by asking this when someone approaches me with water-cooler gossip about myself, you learn…

5 Hacks to Grow Your Instagram

If you are trying to grow your business, then you know that Instagram is a platform you need to embrace. But here’s the thing: Instagram is always evolving and changing their algorithm. You must have some tools in your toolbox that are going to take you the distance even when the platform pivots. I started out this year with an Instagram account that I have had for almost 8 years. I would use the occasional filter. I would maybe throw in a hashtag or geo-tag, but mainly the account was a way for me to keep track of memories. When Court and I launched the Unshaken Podcast, I…

When The Grass Isn’t Greener

We have all heard the saying about thinking the grass is greener somewhere else. And in the same breath, we have heard the grass is green where you water it. But has anyone talked to us about what to do when you feel out of water and your grass is starting to fade? You are trying your best to keep things alive and well. You want it to be the best yard ever! I know, girl me too. I know how hard it can be to remember what life was like before our kids, how our husbands looked at us when we first started dating, and even how…

The Art of Delegation

Let’s face it sister… there is only so much time in the day. Time is also one of the only finite things in life so when its gone, its gone forever! I had to learn how to delegate tasks to make more time for the things that I truly enjoy in life. At first, some of these are going to be tough to hand off to someone else, but in the long run, you will thank me! Remember, there are certain things that must be done by YOU. No one else can record a podcast episode for me. No one else can show up to work for me……

Is Your Dream Big Enough?

Do you ever wake up in the middle of the night with a great idea? I don’t sleep with my phone nearby, but I do keep a pen and paper on the bedside table so that when a great idea hits, I can write it down.  Recently, I started thinking about the projects I have going on and my six-month, one-year, and five-year plans. And it terrified me. “Grow the podcast by X number of listeners per season” and “start making $10,000 a month on top of my full-time job.” WHOA! That sounds crazy and scary and farfetched, right? Maybe so, but if your dream doesn’t scare you…

The Easiest Snack Around

YOU GUYS! I am a snacker. Being in the office makes me hungry for some reason (LOL) and I have been known to wander down to the vending machine and pick something that is not so great for my skinny jeans. I have also started fasting (yes, fasting- blog post coming soon!) and working on eating less carbs during my snacks so I can savor them for my main meals. With all that being said, I wanted to find something I could snack on with no guilt. I am a huge cheese lover and enjoy munching on Whisps- Cheddar or Parmesan cheese crisps. LIGHT BULB! I should make…
