We’ve been getting a crash course in navigating the unknown. Like in a super macro way. No effing around, 2020 has us on the edge. The edge of our seats, the edge of our capacities, the edge of evolution. When you’re at your edge, what are the coping mechanisms that pop up first? Distracting or dissociating? The ol’ numb + soothe? Controlling yourself, others or your environment? Fits of fear or flight? Being able to be with uncertainty and navigate the unknown is a skill we can actually develop. But being able to regulate ourselves before our lizard brains take

There’s A LOT of advice out there about how to grow and scale your business. If there’s one repeated pattern I’ve noticed with entrepreneurs when they’re at the stage of expanding from a one or two person show into building a team it’s a sense of confusion and overwhelm. What’s the “right way” and which advice should be taken? Meet Erin. She’s an entrepreneur who had to scale WAY BACK in terms of the time she could spend on her business. During the first few months of the pandemic, she and her husband moved, had no child care and she
Time scarcity. What causes the experience that there’s not enough time? Is it simply factual, not enough hours for all the things? The responsibilities and commitments, even more intensified during particular seasons of life; the career, the family, all directions, pulling at time. Or is it possible that space, downtime, slower paces are too terrifying to inhabit? That when they seep in, busyness soothes us, so we fill them? This exploration and topic is my motha lovin’ jam. Meet Stephanie. She’s been in business for 14 years so she’s not new to the game of hustle and juggle. She’s established,
In our more practical moments, perhaps we know that aspiring to “have it all” is unrealistic. And yet, the pursuit of a thriving career, achieving new levels of impact with our gifts, all while cultivating a rich family and community life…yes please. Do you find yourself stretched in all the directions, really wanting to trust that ‘you’ve got this’, but know that if just one more thing gets loaded on your plate, you’re effed? Meet Jeannine. Business owner, mother of two, expanding her capacity to meet the needs of her world while rocking her calling. I’ve worked with Jey one-on-one
If you’re feeling ready to pivot into new territory with your gifts, we’ve got a juicy coaching session for you to bear witness to. If what you’ve pursued up until now has felt like you’ve been doing what you’re good at and even contributing in ways that are needed, but aren’t the true territory of your dharma, this session is for you! Meet Opal. She’s a writer and poet and is wondering if she can actually turn this love into a living. Wanting to move out of care work, she doesn’t fully trust the path because the form isn’t clear.
For years, I found myself in the same pattern. I’d be pursuing a vision or goal, something right on the edge of a whole new territory of creativity, genius, and impact. I’d feel electric with possibility. Then I’d get sick. I’d pull back. Daunted and disheartened, I just wouldn’t have the energy for it. Especially the pieces that felt vulnerable, risky, hard. I assumed I’d just taken on too much. I first caught the pattern when I read The Big Leap by Gay Hendricks. One of the concepts he unpacks is what happens when we try to make the leap
If you’ve never had this experience, I’ll be shocked… You have a vision for something you want to create. You care about it, deeply. You know it will make a difference. You know it’s yours to pursue. And then…you think about what it will take to actually make it happen and…rush of fear…it’s going to be so haaaaaard. We can absolutely be simultaneously inspired, fired up and ready to rock, while anticipating the grind ahead with heavy fear. So how to lighten the load? Especially when the work is in a territory that is charged, full of challenge and grit,
Can you trust your instincts? Do you make decisions and lead your work and life from that which feels aligned with what you’re called to do? Or do you find yourself overwhelmed by the noise, people pleasing or picking up what’s not yours to carry? Meet Julia. When the pandemic struck, it became clear that the career she was embarking on wouldn’t be possible in the near future. Inspiringly, she pivoted and started her own business! Now as she builds her body of work, she’s looking to sharpen her instincts for alignment, to cut out the noise and advice of
Are you just totally confident and comfy in certain contexts, but frozen, over-thinking and self-criticizing in others? Does it feel baffling that you can go from being in-the-flow, aligned and clear one minute to blank and blocked the next? In this episode of Coaching for the Collective, we explore the phenomenon of being able to freely jam when in conversation and relationship, but how a blank page brings forth all the demons! What if they don’t like it? What if it isn’t good enough? What if this exposes me? Are you editing your message before you even begin? Anticipating how
This episode of Coaching for the Collective was so fun to record because I got to jam with TWO values centered entrepreneurs who are taking their friendship to the next level: Business Partners. What could go wrong, right? There are so many that caution forming business partnerships with friends or loved ones. But when done well, this can be a way to truly merge vision, values and genius to co-create something extraordinary! Not only do we cover some practical ways to future proof a partnership (which can totally apply to other relationship agreements btw!), we also explore how to embed
