When I decided to start the podcast I knew I wanted it to be a place for entrepreneurs to hear the real behind the highlight reel, the messy […]

If you do this one thing, you cannot fail. Back in my days as a Fortune 100 financial advisor, that’s exactly what I was promised. And for five years I thought about that one thing each and every year when I was setting my goals, yet year after year I fell short.  What I couldn’t […]

I waltzed into 2021 ready to officially relaunch the business after a year off, eight months pregnant, and just sure that 2021 would be our “come back” year.  Well, #spoileralert, things didn’t quite go as planned.  Turns out having a baby, deciding to move back home halfway across the country, living in house limbo for […]

Confession: I’ve totally been that person a week before taxes were due sorting through receipts and trying to get my quickbooks up to date.

You guys have journeyed with me through all the highs and lows and messy middle moments… I think it’s about time that you get to go behind-the-scenes and hear more of the untold stories that I’ve never shared publicly before (many of which have shaped how these last few years have played out). While many […]

I know taking a month-long paid sabbatical (or a three month long paid maternity leave) can sound impossible. But I’ve now taught hundreds of my students and clients to do the same with one simple step: learning to track your high and low seasons. (I know that probably peaks your interest, so I’ll make sure […]

For years I’ve heard clients and students say they want to replace their corporate salary with income from their creative business.

I think we can all agree, finances is one of the most intimidating parts of running a business. Even as a former fortune 100 financial advisor with a business degree, I still get stumped from time to time on tax forms and the “right” way to do something when it comes to my business dollars. […]

It’s official. Covid-19 is currently topping the charts of my google search box. These past few weeks have been a whirlwind often leaving me swinging precariously on a pendulum from panic to peace, fear to faith. As many of us have jokingly (or not so jokingly) panicked over the toilet paper shortage… what’s less visible […]

It’s been six months since officially announcing 2019 as my last year in business. Well, today is the day! After hitting “publish” on this post, I’m officially closing up shop!

“I just wasn’t getting it.” Flustered and tired, I met Kat at a pivotal moment in her business. On the outside her company appeared to have it all.
