Why I Created The L.I.F.E. Method (& Why Alignment Matters)

Why I Created The L.I.F.E. Method (& Why Alignment Matters)

During my really busy weeks with a big workload and lots of projects in the queue, alignment is priority number one. I not only double down at my desk.

I double down on my mat too.

The activities that keep me aligned are what I prioritize no matter what’s in the queue for the week.

Whether it’s meditation, cycle syncing, solo strolls in the sunshine, a sweaty strength training sesh… I put it on the schedule first.

The L.I.F.E. Method makes it possible for me to create a day-to-day based on: me.

Because you can’t show up for your business if you can’t show up for yourself first.

And to be honest…

The moment I started prioritizing myself was the moment everything changed for me.

✨ I showed up for my marriage differently.

✨ I showed up for my kids differently.

✨ I showed up for my relationships differently.

✨ I showed up for my business differently.

I created The LIFE Method because there was nothing else out there that could lead me back to alignment with myself.

A practical approach to creating a new way of being simply didn’t exist.

I wanted something tangible, something I could do on my own, in my own time, and something that would get me aligned and on the right path asap.

What would happen in your life and business if you did the same?

When you don’t prioritize you, your business can’t thrive. Because then you’re unable and unwilling and unaligned to show up for it. 

Despite what a million other coaches will tell you: you are the business. 

You. Are. The. Business. 

So nurture and nourish yourself like you are.

The L.I.F.E. Method quite literally helps you base your entire day-to-day on YOUR source of power, YOUR innate being, and what makes you, YOU.

The things that energize you, that keep you sane, that fuel you and bring you back to your why are the pieces of you that not only sustain you…

They represent the essence of you that you are selling, too.  

What you’re *actually* selling is hidden in the transformation you are representing.

Read that again. (And more on this soon, tbh.)

This is your essence coming alive through your business. This is embodying your work. This is walking the talk. This is the next paradigm of marketing.

Let The L.I.F.E. Method align you to it.

Welcome to A New Season of Transformation

Welcome to A New Season of Transformation

Welcome to a new season of transformation.

I’ve taken some time away from my work this summer… mostly to realign. I’ve also invested in myself, especially in my well-being, and as a result, my business is emerging once again, reborn, renewed and revitalized.

Here’s the truth: as an entrepreneur, you’re on a never-ending journey of self-discovery.

This is WONDERFUL because you get to decide:

  1. To begin a new routine, a new strategy, a fresh start for greater ease and alignment…
  2. To end old patterns, behaviors and structures that don’t support your alignment…

Because, as always within a journey, you will get to a point of uncharted territory.

Old patterns and behaviors aren’t the go-to anymore. Old ways of being and doing aren’t serving you anymore. The old you simply… just… can’t continue.

But there’s beauty in this moment… if you let it be beautiful.

Something else takes over. Something healing. Something more loving. 

That something is you, emerging stronger, wiser, and better than ever.

Like a literal phoenix rising from the ashes.

If you’re on this journey too… burn, baby, burn. Re-align like your life depends on it, because it does.

Your business depends on you – that new version of you that will heal you, save you, free you. 

You’ve got what you need to pick up the pieces, pivot and get after it. 

You’ve got what it takes to enjoy your business, to relish in marketing it, to truly love being a business owner. 

Building a business, either after a pivot or from the ground up, *can* be fun. It *can* be flowy. 

You just need to create the structure to *hold* the flow, fun and ease. 

That’s truly what you’re craving, isn’t it?

That’s where The L.I.F.E. Method comes in. And I’ve remastered it once again to reflect this truth, so that you can really get to the root of alignment and gain clarity in your next steps. 

We all want our businesses to be aligned to who we are, what we stand for, how we want to make money and how all of this will sustain us. 

The L.I.F.E. Method provides the structure *and* the alignment. 

If you haven’t done so yet, give it a try!  

The most you’ll get out of it? An entirely new way of being. 

The least? Greater self-discovery. 

Talk about transformation, huh?

Your Permission to Break the Rules

This is Your Permission to Break the Rules

I don’t know about you but I’m so done following the rules… your rules, their rules, heck, even my own rules! 

From the absurdities of the social algorithms to the policing of content by followers and non-followers alike, it’s all just utterly ridiculous.

And it takes the fun out of what we’re all doing on social media. 

We’re here to connect, learn new things, take in other opinions, be entertained, share our joys, our struggles, our human experiences.

Sometimes all that is holding us back is the fear of being seen…

…As humans with challenges and struggles, 

…As someone who wears many hats (mom, wife, boss, goddess divine…),

…As an individual with many interests, hobbies, skills, and talents.

You don’t have to share anything. You can also share everything. 

What would happen if you decided to make social media a little more playful?

What would you share if you decided to incorporate more *play* into your social strategy?

How can you infuse more fun in the connecting process?

We’ve become so mechanical… the user has quite literally become the computer.

Sameness does not mean oneness. Uniformity does not mean unity. 

I love sharing my life… not because I think it’s aspirational or influential or anything like that.

I share it because it’s my source of joy. It’s my source of inspiration. I share my ups, my downs, my highs, my lows, my story, because connecting – with all of the parts of me I wish to share on here – is meaningful to me. And fun. And that’s OKAY.

So, #sorrynotsorry but if you see me sharing more of me, different sides of me, various pieces of me, myself and I, you can either embrace it or keep it moving. 

I’m here to have some fun. Who’s with me?!

My Birthday Blog – This is 35

My June 21st birthday message to you…

If there’s one thing, one piece of soul-powered inspiration that I would share with you over and over again… one message that comes from my heart and epitomizes all of the knowledge and experience that brought me to where I am today… one thing, just one, it would be this:

Stay true to you. 

Some of us don’t know what that means. 

Some of us don’t know where to start. 

Some of us may think “duh!” And others may be like, “huh?”

But, just for a moment, really consider it. 

Is what you are doing, who you are being, and how you are living truly aligned with what you WANT to be doing, who you WANT to become, and how you WANT to live?

We put things off. We wait. We say we’re not ready. We take into account other people’s thoughts, opinions, beliefs. We say “one day.” We think we have all the time in the world.

Right now is all we’ll ever have. The present moment is all we’ll ever have to do, be, and live. 

I’ve spent the better part of my life going through the motions of the day-to-day, waking up to the same routine, then rushing, rushing, rushing through the day, without a conscious thought of why, just to fall asleep and do it all again the next day. 

Until I took a moment to really check in with myself and ask, “Is this truly aligned?”

Here’s the truth: the only person who can tell you that you are aligned is you.

What might be aligned with one person may not be aligned with you. What may be true to someone else, may not be true to you. 

So how do you start being true to you?

I created a practical approach to this whole idea of alignment – one that takes into account the only thing that matters when it comes to alignment: you. 

The L.I.F.E. Method helps you identify your desired lifestyle, identity, feelings and expression, so that you can create your desired reality. 

My birthday wish is to get the method into as many hands as possible. Of course it will take some time, but you can help. Who can you send this to? Who can you share this with?

Imagine the kind of world we’d be living in if people approached their own lives with this type of consciousness and clarity. Imagine if more people built and designed their lives with intention.

That’s the kind of world I dream of every day. 

Because this is how you stay true to you.

Re-Aligning for Greater Ease

Re-Aligning for Even More Ease

In a previous blog post, I talked about the energy of alignment – and that once you commit to living your life in an aligned way, there are energies around you that protect that alignment. I’m currently in a state of actively re-aligning.

It’s kind of like being in the late third trimester of pregnancy… when you’re reconfiguring your environment and way of living to prepare for this new life. 

After the initial launch of my Soul-Powered Business Program, I realized that there are still some elements that weren’t entirely in alignment with how I want the program to run on its own and also with how I want my members to consume it. 

This doesn’t require going back to the drawing board. It simply requires pivots.

Alignment is, more often than not, a series of pivots you make in an effort to become one with your soul – for how you want to live, be, work and show up for it all. 

A few questions I’m asking myself are:

  • How can I bring members from point A to point B even faster and in a simpler way?
  • How can I bring more joy and fun into the experience of moving from point A and point B?
  • How can I help people truly enjoy the pivot? How can I embody the joy of pivoting myself?

It really all comes down to ease. Re-aligning to ease is what I am currently moving through.

Are you embracing ease in your business, and if not, what kind of pivots do you need to make so that you can?

Rest is Productive

Rest Is Productive

Rest is productive. This is something that I have known to be true for quite some time but have only recently decided to put fully into practice.

You see, it’s easy (especially for a Type-A-Recovering-Perfectionist like me) to get caught up in being consistent for the sake of consistency. 

Maybe that’s how it used to be. Show up constantly and consistently until you get the results that you want to see. 

The world is changing though. A new, more enlightened, more refreshing approach to building business is manifesting all around us. 

And we’ve been brought here to give ourselves and others the permission to put their hearts first and at the center of it all. 

That means before we think about it, we’ve gotta “feel” about it. 

(Yes, I know that sentence doesn’t really work but hear me out!)

I used to think through (aka strategize) everything. I’d plan, plot and overthink my way through pretty much everything in life, including my business. I did it all even if it didn’t feel right, even if I didn’t feel like doing it. 

With my most recent launch, there were elements of my program that I wasn’t fully aligned with, and consciously or not, I still allowed myself to be influenced by the coaching/consulting community to create an offering that fit into the current model that is considered “standard” out there.

And thankfully, this new type of energy is protective. It helps you re-align so that you can create something in tune with what your heart longs to create in their world. 

And so, that is what I’m currently doing. I’m feeling my way through everything I do, say and share. Instead of doing, I’m in a state of being (of seeing, sensing, breathing, moving) with my heart.

Yes, it’s a little scary and unnerving for someone like me.

But it’s also totally wonderful. 

So what has come from my restful state?

>>> A more aligned approach to the next chapter

>>> Greater clarity in my next steps

>>> Full faith in what’s to come

Path of Inspiration = Path of Least Resistance

Path of Inspiration = Path of Least Resistance

Believe it or not, the path of inspiration wasn’t on my radar until my early 30s. I used to have a heck of a time figuring out what inspires me, and I used to find consolation in the fact that so many others did too.

How we got here isn’t hard to figure out… We’ve simply grown up in a culture that seldom focuses on inspiration. Instead, we focus on taking the “safer route” of job security, and if we are brave enough to start our own businesses, we look to what others have done and follow their steps for building them. 

So many of us are under the illusion that the path of inspiration is the riskier path. Why? Because of the unknown. Because nobody has walked it yet. I’m here to tell you that the path of inspiration is actually the safest path of them all.

Because when you follow your bliss, you’ve got God, the Universe, and all the forces that be on your side. Opportunities arise. Synchronicities abound. Miracles happen. 

Have you noticed work is easier when you are inspired? Have you noticed that work is more exciting when you are inspired? Have you noticed that wonderful coincidences and circumstances happen like magic when you are inspired? Have you noticed how much more “in flow”  and free and alive you feel when you are inspired?

No matter where you are on your journey, you can redirect and detour to the path of inspiration. I’m here to help you do that.

My Soul-Powered Business Program opens for enrollment in just a few weeks. This program features my proprietary methods, the L.I.F.E. Method, S.O.U.L. Method and L.O.V.E. Method.  (These are the methods that lead you to your inspired path and then set you up to go full speed ahead.)

What it Means to Choose Your Hard

What It Means to “Choose Your Hard”

One of the biggest belief-shifting statements that I wish I was told at the beginning of my entrepreneurial journey, almost 10 years ago, is this: “You get to choose your hard.”

This statement is true for every area of your life where you desire change. Whether it’s for nurturing relationships, losing weight, making money or building a business, we all do things that are hard, but we get to choose what that hard looks like.

Take me for example. Right now, we are in the process of sleep training my son, Declan. He gets two dream feeds a night, and one of those takes place at 3:00am. Now, because I would normally be waking up at 5:00am, I have now chosen to stay up after this dream feed. 

And let me tell you: It’s hard waking up at 3:00am to give myself 3 to 4 hours of me-time and work-time. It’s hard having to go to bed at 8:00pm, instead of watching one more episode on Netflix with my husband, so that I can catch some sleep. It’s hard working on a Sunday afternoon when I’d much rather be chilling on the couch with my family. It’s hard being a stay-at-home mom and an entrepreneur with a vision and a mission.  

But this is the kind of “hard” that I’ve chosen. This is the “hard” I’m choosing right now.

Because it would be much harder if I let myself sleep in just to scramble and stress all day. It would be much harder if I didn’t make time to meditate, or write, or read, or create – these are the things that I need to keep me, me. It would be much harder if I bailed on my business, because it’s my passion and the greatest representation of my purpose. 

The truth of the matter is – we all have to do hard things. We get to choose what’s hard though. “Hard” is relative. It’s hard pivoting into something more aligned. It’s hard building a business that matters to you. But you know what else is hard? Staying exactly where you are. Wasting another day of your life doing something that doesn’t light you up. 

The soul-powered path isn’t always the easiest. It can get uncomfortable. It can get scary. It can get exhausting. Here are three things that keep me going, particularly when I start to question what I’m doing or when it feels like things aren’t moving fast enough for me. 

  1. Impermanence keeps me going. This is the notion that not everything lasts forever. Everything comes to an end. Every season brings new challenges and opportunities. Declan won’t be needing dream feeds forever – he might no longer need them a month from now. I might be able to have more help a month from now. I might be in a totally different place a month from now. 
  2. My “why” keeps me going. The why is everything in business – it’s not only the motivating factor, but also what compels you to stay disciplined and determined. When I pivoted into e-learning, I decided that I was going to be relentlessly persistent in the pursuit of my dreams, because I have a vision for my family. I have desires that can come to fruition if I can stay the course. 
  3. And most importantly, my inner knowing keeps me going. This is the strong, undeniable truth deep within me that on the other side of all this “hard” that I’m facing at the moment, is something really, truly incredible. I keep imagining what that will look like – when I finally sell out my program, when I can finally create more courses, when I can have more options for me and my family. It’s so clear and strong in my mind and in my heart. 

I’m not someone who wants to choose between being a stay-at-home mom and an entrepreneur, and so I choose both. It might make things harder in the short term, but the long term impact will be amazing. Make sure you’re showing up for the right kind of “hard” – the kind that will lead you to exactly where you want to be.

Remember Who You Are

How to Remember Who You Are

Remember who you are.

Before the opinions mattered…

Before the noise got too loud…

Before the world made you forget…

Before you put the constraints on yourself…

Remember where you come from… from an infinite source of power and l o v e.

It’s absolutely possible for you to create the life that you can’t stop thinking about. It’s time to show up, be seen and shine. 

I recently had an epiphany. I’ve been envisioning this “dream life” variation of my current life for a long time. I’ve also been fairly specific with my visions – where we would live, the car, the home, the lifestyle. However, I realized only recently that where I am in my life right now is exactly what I’ve dreamt of for the longest time. I’ve dreamt of having this life for so long, and now that I have it, I forgot that it used to be a dream. 

This realization made me understand manifestations differently. Yes, we can manifest a dream life, but only if we surrender to what we have now. Because what we have now is enough. In fact, it’s probably what we’ve wanted at an earlier point in our lives. Releasing the hold on my next vision puts me exactly where I need to be – extremely grateful for the present, for what I have, for the people here with me. 

This realization also made me realize how easy it is to forget who we are in our core – infinitely powerful beings that come from love. We live in a world of absolute freedom. We can create and do whatever we want and be whomever we choose. When we remember who we are, we can do anything.

When you feel as though you have forgotten your power, pull out your journal. Write down the painful story that is making you suffer, self-sabotage or procrastinate. Then re-write it into a new version that is both powerful and loving. This is the story that is true.
