Listen To My Latest Podcast Episode: How to Integrate Speaking with Digital Courses or Products
It’s the dirty little secret we don’t talk about in online business.
We sneak it into the bathroom, hide under our sheets, or in the pantry pretending to find the kids snacks...
glued to our smartphones, “working”.
We have online businesses to run, so we have to be online, right?
A quick pop onto Facebook to check replies for that last post.
Then over to Instagram to see if any non-bots answered our question sticker (still nope).
Each grab of the phone starts the involuntarily, yet obligatory app circle:
All 3 accounts.
DMs. Stories. Feed.
Jump to Facebook
Notifications. Groups. Feed. .
Back to Insta.
Why am I here?
Maybe a little Slack, Vox + Marco Polo?
24 minutes later you have no clue what you just did for “work”.
Cut the crap, we can’t intelligently call this work.
For me, it became more of an escape.
From what? I do not know.
To where? Also not entirely sure.
Our smartphones take us to...
I believe that the secret to finding and rocking your IT FACTOR stems from the inner work we do on ourselves.
When you’re clear on who you are and continually strive to become the best version of yourself, the law of attraction kicks in and others are drawn to you like a magnet.
If you’re a fan of personal development like me, listening to podcasts, books and taking online courses, you’ve most likely experienced the high that comes when you get inspired to dream and hope.
You’ve also most likely experienced the overflow of information, drinking from the fire hose of inspirational how-tos, chasing the next motivational hit, never stopping long enough to allow information to transform into knowledge.
Today I’m challenging you to consider the level of intentionality you place on your learning: are you growing in the right areas?
And secondly, do you have the capacity for the information you consume to become knowledge? Are you giving...
It's that word that seems so immeasurable—trust.
When growing your audience and authority online, building trust with others is a requirement.
But trust is slippery because in the online space, we are SKEPTICAL of things on the internet!
So how do you get strangers on the internet to TRUST you?
What exactly is trustworthiness? And how do you go about elevating it in this skeptical online space?
Cue my expert guest, Andrea Howe.
She’s the Founder of the Get Real Project and co-author of the Trusted Advisor Fieldbook: A Comprehensive Toolkit for Leading with Trust.
I first met Andrea almost a decade ago when I hired her to come into my former company to run a workshop with our team on building trust based relationships.
She was so effective we brought her back again and again.
When I was creating a 3 part series on the “know, like and trust factor”, I knew the...
**This is Part 1 of a 3 part series on building the “know, like & trust factor” with your online audience.**
You can infuse your personality into a presentation, podcast or video, but if your emails resemble dry toast, you won’t keep your audience.
In business, every single touch point you have with someone is your chance to strengthen or weaken their perception of your brand.
What’s your current email relationship status?
If you’re like many online entrepreneurs, who aren’t copywriters, chances are it’s complicated.
Maybe you dread writing that weekly newsletter to your list or have lackluster engagement with the emails you DO send.
Whatever your email “complicated status” situation is, I’d like to play matchmaker.
Meet Bobby Klinck.
A Harvard Law Grad turned online entrepreneur—but he’s NOT your typical lawyer. He doesn't do suits, he hates legalese more than you do, and has a tendency to...

I’m sure you’ve heard that videos are gold on social media, but did you know that LIVE videos get SIX times more engagement than a regular video?
Maybe you’ve been thinking about video for your business, but your perfectionistic side has been holding you back.
Or maybe it’s the tech.
Maybe you’re terrified of the camera or have no clue what you’d talk about.
But here’s the thing:
“Live video is a great way to create that authentic connection with your...
I’ve established a pretty solid work-from-home routine this last year, keeping my kids in daycare 4 days a week so I can run my online business.
But then…March 2020 happened.
Quarantine and kids are home 24/7.
What’s the right way to feel right now?
Lucky for being able to be home with my kids and still make money?
Guilty because others have had their world turned upside down and I’m still standing?
Annoyed for playing Candyland for the 97th time with my 5 year old when what I want to be doing is write?
Guilty again for thinking and writing the above?
Lonely because even though my inner circle is small, and I don’t see them often (#introvert) the thought of NOT being able to is quite depressing.
There's no right way to run a business through a pandemic. However you’re feeling, try to give yourself a heavy dose of grace.
Just focus on the things that are most important to you.
As we each figure out this new way to work, I thought...
We have far more control over our energy than we think, including nerves like stage fright.
Today, my guest, Whitney McNeill joins me for a conversation about the connection between our mind and body, managing your energy through those pesky nerves, the power of affirmations and mindset and so much more (plus of course a few random tangents from yours truly).
Whitney is a Certified Medium and Spiritual Teacher that teaches entrepreneurs how to connect with their intuition and energy so they can make aligned decisions, live their life purpose, and attract abundance into their business and lives.

A few weeks ago, I was chatting with my good friend about the ups and downs of being a strong, opinionated woman in business.
I knew I had to pull the curtain back and share it with you, so I’m bringing you a bonus episode with my friend, Heather Block.
And we’re skipping the small talk and getting straight to the good stuff. Touching on topics that many shy away from (like the fact that we have egos… and so do you). From confidence, self awareness to asking better questions and ditching the identify that’s holding you back, grab a latte and dive into my chat with Heather Block.

A perk of running your online business is taking zoom calls in your sweats. But those big goals you’ve set aren't going to happen from behind your laptop.
To grow your audience (and your programs), you’ve got to get more eyeballs on your business, which means stepping into the spotlight to get noticed.
But the big question for many entrepreneurs is: when’s the right time to start speaking on podcasts and stages?
The answer? Much sooner than you think.
Joining me in a conversation on visibility and getting started before you feel ready, is my good friend, mentor and client, the legendary Tarzan Kay.
Tarzan shares the story of the first time she ever spoke on a stage. It happened to be Amy Porterfield’s and she was in a line up alongside Jasmine Star and Marie Forleo. Listen in to hear what happened when she stepped off.
Tarzan reminds us that “if you have no audience, you have no business” and generously shares tangible tips and...
When it comes to delivering a talk to your ideal audience - your topic matters. It’s how you stand out in a sea of pitches and jump out from a lineup of a bunch of other talks. Sure, your content and delivery will make you shine, but it all begins with the topic you choose.
