GET STARTED TODAY CREATING YOUR TALK!

Join my virtual community & receive my FREE SOULFUL SIGNATURE TALK TEMPLATE
to attract your ideal clients and grow your tribe as my thank you.

Website Optin (Automation)

Preparing for my SUE Talk next week has been an amazing experience so far and has come with a few insights:

1) The value of support - Receiving coaching for my talk has made the experience so much more FUN and far less nerve-wracking than if I was doing it on my own. And wise input from others has helped me create a more compelling talk!

2) Every word counts - Distilling my message down to 10 minutes has been a challenge. And it’s helped me clarify the essence of what I'm truly here to share and realize that fewer words can still have enormous impact. 

3) Public speaking still brings me to my edge - I'll be sharing a story that I've never publicly shared before in my upcoming talk, and what an opportunity this process has been to let go of more anxiety, self-doubt and worry about what others will think. 

I can honestly say I'm truly grateful for my “stuff” coming up, so I can consciously release it. 

Thank you for your loving support and being on this journey with me! 💛

This amazing guy. I have to stand on a rock now to be taller than him. One of life’s greatest gifts is becoming a mom. Happy National Son’s Day 💙(which was yesterday, btw)

Hey there! It’s been awhile since I’ve done one of those introductiony-type things here (truthfully, never). So I thought I’d give it a whirl since it seems like “the thing” to do here on this platform. :)
 
The truth is I’m pretty inconsistent with posting, even though I REALLY want to be consistent. (Consistency is KEY, they say… right?) I’m also told I have to have a social media strategy, branding photos and tons of content to post everyday, PLUS I need to be creating videos, reels and stories to keep you engaged! It all seems so overwhelming at times…
 
Yet. I feel the part that really wants to play the part, look good to you, and look like I really know what I’m doing! (Hence, my smart-looking branding photo that reminds me of when I worked in the corporate world all those years ago.)
 
And. Now I’m 53, have had my business for 9+ years and a lot more perspective. Truly, I’m here to show up as ME, trust myself, trust my timing, trust my WAY, and allow myself to be guided from within. 

I’m a Soulful Speaker Coach and Creator of the popular Speak Shine Sell Workshop to craft your client-attracting signature talk. (There’s one coming up October 28 & 29, btw.)

Women entrepreneurs hire me when they are tired of hiding out or holding back their voice—and long to be fully expressed with their true gifts and message. My clients courageously step into the spotlight with a soulful signature talk (I help them create this) and attract their ideal clients with ease (I help with this, too), as they unapologetically say YES to being seen, heard and highly visible.
 
That’s the cut & paste version :)

And to round out the picture, here’s what a few clients have shared with me recently:
 
Continued in comments below…
Happy Friday, loves. Friday is Venus’ Day and named after the Germanic goddess Frigga. Venus energy is about love, beauty, luxury and abundance. 

Friday mornings I typically put on uplifting tunes, wrap up loose ends from the work week, and tidy up my office. I often schedule my workshops and webinars on Friday mornings, too, because of its "feel good" vibe. 

Then, I love having lunch with my husband at the beach (beauty & romance) and take off in the afternoons for boogie boarding, self-care or a shopping treat. Today it’s boogie boarding! 

What do feel-good Fridays look like for you? 

#soulpreneur #soulfulbusiness #spiritualbusinesscoach #speakercoach #feelgoodfriday #boogieboarding #beachlife #womenempoweringwomen
Happy Thursday, beautiful souls! 

Thursday is Thor's Day, the Norse god of strength and protection. In most Romance languages, the day is named after the Roman god Jupiter. 

Jupiter is associated with growth, expansion, healing, prosperity, good fortune and miracles. 

So Thursdays are another fabulous day for client sessions, meetings, collaboration, networking, connecting, sending emails--as, in my experience, most people tend to be in an expansive, positive mood. (Because, hey, tomorrow is Friday!) 

Sending love to you on this Thursday and hoping you are in a wonderful, life-giving mood. 

Also, a special shout-out to my client @creatively_jessica for her awesome “I love you” t-shirts! 

What is your typical Thursday vibe?

I can’t believe I get to dress up and go to my first in-person networking event with these two lovelies, @ananieto1230 and @josee.wecanstyle, today! {photo from 2 years ago}

Wednesday, Mercury's Day, is all about communication and mental energy. Remember the Roman god Mercury, the swift messenger of all the other gods? 

Wednesdays are such a great day to send out your e-newsletter, speak to groups, create a lengthy post on social media, develop curriculum, and attend a networking event! 

I typically have a lot of energy on Wednesdays—I see clients and also schedule my Soulful Speakers group coaching sessions on these days.

Haven’t touched business cards in 18 months, so just now remembering to toss some in my bag before I head out the door! 

What is your Wednesday vibe?

Did you know that Tuesday is named after the Roman god of war Mars? In Spanish, it’s Martes. Tuesdays are about action, vitality, and passionately going for what you want. 

I spend a lot of time on my laptop on Tuesdays getting sh*t done, seeing clients, and working on projects. The energy moves on these days! 

I also have my weekly strength training sessions on Tuesdays to activate my warrior goddess even more 💪✨💪

It’s no surprise that Tuesday is statistically the most productive day of the week! 

What energetic qualities do you notice on Tuesdays?

Have you noticed that each day of the week has a unique rhythm to it?⠀
⠀
Named after a Greek, Roman or Norse god or goddess, each day contains a powerful archetypal energy. ⠀
⠀
When I became a business owner and started setting up my work week incorporating the energies of each day, it became a game-changer for my business and my wellbeing. ⠀
⠀
For example, Monday is the Moon's Day. Moon energy is feminine, intuitive, creative, emotional and introspective. No wonder I resisted plunging into Monday meetings all those years in the corporate world! 

So I stopped seeing clients on Mondays. It became my "transition day" to reflect, plan out the week, write, create content, and reconnect with myself, especially if I've had a busy social weekend. 

I also have a 1-hour, deep-dive phone call on Monday mornings with two of my closest friends where we mastermind together and share our personal & business desires, reflections and insights. A ritual we've continued for more than 8 years now.

What’s your Monday mood on this Moon Day? 🌓

For a few years I've dreamed about leading an in-person retreat for my community. Has this been a desire or calling for you as well?

If so or even if you're just curious about retreats, you'll want to tune in to my delightful conversation with retreat planning expert Tamara Golden of @journeyworkretreats {link in bio}

We cover a ton of ground in just 30 minutes, including: 

 * The 3 elements that must go into every in-person retreat (including one that many retreat leaders leave out), so that your clients walk away with lasting transformation and results.

* What you need to have in place in your business before hosting a retreat.

* When is the right time to offer your first retreat (Tamara illuminates this "sweet spot" for many business owners).

* How to make money from leading an in-person retreat--including both short-term and long-term ways to bring in revenue.

While we don't know the outcome of this pandemic, Tamara believes (and I agree) that NOW is a great time to begin planning an in-person retreat. People are HUNGRY for more meaningful in-person gatherings, while Zoom fatigue is only growing. 

Listen in to our "all about retreats" conversation. {click on the link in my bio}

My vision is to create an in-person retreat for women entrepreneurs that is a mix of practical business-building stuff (speaking, visibility & messaging) along with fun, pleasure & play. Stay tuned, my friends…✨✨✨

First day of middle school, 7th grade. How did this happen?!
Happy birthday to my amazing love 💕 Celebrating your kindhearted, fun-loving, soulful self is one of life’s greatest joys.
Recently I interviewed the fabulous @isabeldraughon, life transformation coach and spiritual mentor for ambitious women entrepreneurs. 

Isabel shares how women can connect to their inner power--what she calls "the loud whisper"--unleash their voice, and free themselves to live their most amazing life. 

Living in survival mode right before her 40th birthday, Isabel tells us about her 3 a.m. wake-up call that had her discover the truth of who she really is. She went on to become a two-time marathon runner and start her business, where she coaches and inspires her clients and community to tap into their "loud whisper."

The purpose of life is to know yourself and love yourself and trust yourself and be yourself. 

The older I get, the more I realize it truly is as simple as that. 

Wishing everyone a happy holiday time 🥰
Last night with this amazing man 💕Celebrating our 14th wedding anniversary ✨
Happiness is… getting together with a dear friend, longtime client and one of my founding Soulful Speaker members @omvalerie for a beach walk and lovely, nourishing connection time 💛

Kian’s 6th grade promotion is what’s been happening in my world. It’s been his best year yet, despite Covid, and I’m so very grateful he was able to do in-person school with his friends and the most amazing teachers. 🙏✨💛
Recently, I got judgey with myself at a classy sales training with a wonderful mentor. 

Why am I not better at this? (We were doing a role-playing exercise.) Why is this feeling so hard? Why does SHE sound so much better than me?

Ugh, so confronting! 

Afterwards, I realized I wasn’t giving myself permission to SUCK. To be messy, unpolished and boldly out front with my not knowing. 

I was holding back my voice, as I wanted to come across as the cat’s meow and like I really had my sh*t together. 😯

So I had a pep talk with myself. 

I said: I’m still ok. I’m still a leader even though this moment feels hard and messy, and I feel like I should be further along than I am. (In fact, it seemed like most of the women in the training were struggling.) 

I said: There’s nothing wrong with me, and there’s no right or wrong way. I love myself, no matter what. 

And next time, I thought: I DO want to stretch myself, even if it’s just a little bit further out, and dare to SUCK! 

Happy Friday, everyone 💛 Where’s one place you’re wanting to edge out a bit beyond your comfort zone and maybe even dare to suck while doing it?

I LOVED my recent conversation with @peggylebo on OWNING the power of your true voice! 

Peggy is the founder of The True Voice Method, a singer-songwriter and vocal coach. 

She shared so many incredible insights on how women entrepreneurs can find and free their most authentic voices—and make their greatest impact.

#mondaymusings Hi, my friend. How are you doing? I took a week-plus rest from IG, and it’s had me ponder my love-hate relationship with social media—and be with a myriad of thoughts & feelings. 

Many times I feel the joy & pleasure of connecting here with amazing people like you, sharing my insights, promoting my business stuff. And other times it feels like pressure. (Ugh, I really hate feeling pressured.)

I notice feelings of resistance come up: Do I REALLY need to post so often? Do I REALLY need all those hashtags? I notice thoughts of comparison and competitiveness: Am I doing it right? Am I doing enough? Is it good enough? I notice thoughts of complacency: What’s the point of all this anyway? Do I really need to even share this post? 

And yet, here I am on a Monday evening showing up with no strategy in mind other than to speak what is on my heart and create a deeper connection with you—and with myself. 

Because it all comes down to this: I am very, very human, and I’ve learned (still learning) to embrace with compassion ALL parts of me. I am also magnificently and gloriously divine! I AM THAT. The awe-inspiring, jaw-dropping beauty of this life is the coming together, the dance of the human and divine, and being, feeling and embodying all of it. 

YOU ARE THAT, TOO. I see your light and send you my love 💛
