Are you inviting stress and overwhelm into your life? Are you pouring it a cup of coffee and allowing it to stay awhile? Not after this episode. I'm serving up my secret strategies for dealing with the stresses of every day life and work, and providing some mega perspective to help you decide what you're available for in your world.

Thank you to our sponsor, Metal Marvels!

Metal Marvels is a brand for badass & bold women who don't fit societies standards. Katie, the creator, was always searching for mantra jewelry with more powerful & in your face messages. Being a woman who curses like a sailor daily, the messages just weren't out there. So she created the amazing Expletives collection that gives women jewelry that helps them feel empowered to be themselves, to be bold, and use the word fuck as frequently as they want. Societal standards for women and success, are bullshit and she runs her company that way too showing that someone who curses like a sailor, has tattoos and purple hair, can be extremely successful in this world. Make sure you follow Metal Marvels Instagram for daily inspiration, a heavy use of profanity, and badass products. And you can save 20% off for being a Style your mind listener.

What if "someday" never comes? One of the most motivating and empowering truths is that we are all going to die. And nobody knows when. So why are you saving all of the beautiful, life-changing things you want to do for some imaginary bucket list you'll probably never actually check things off of? Why aren't you doing all those beautiful, life-changing things NOW? In this mini episode, I'm serving up some real talk to help you turn your bucket list into your to-do list, and start creating the wildly gorgeous life you deserve to live.

Can we talk about what a f*cking circus it is when you begin something new?! My apparel launch has been a MASSIVE success. I am thrilled, fired up, excited, humbled, and grateful, but OMG - I am WORKED! It's been an incredible lesson in the inevitable hiccups that come along with blazing a new trail for yourself. And I truly think so many women never start the things they dream of starting because they dread the hiccups. They dread the craziness that always tags along when we leave our comfort zones and try that new thing. In this episode, I'm talking about my own experience with this, and giving you 5 solid strategies on how to navigate the challenges that come along with new projects and keep your head above water.

Have you ever shared a win or a celebration that you were proud of, only to have someone try to knock you down? A funny thing happens when we reveal our confidence; it triggers those who are lacking it.

This is a big one for my boss ladies who struggle with putting themselves out there!

Growing up, I always assumed if a woman was powerful, she was a bitch. I never understood that you could be assertive, yet kind. I never understood that you could be empowered, yet EMPOWERING. In this episode, I'm sharing a personal story about how I overcame people pleasing and learned how to be unapologetic in my life and my business, and how you can too.

On a cold November night in 2013, I boarded a plane at JFK airport by myself to go to London. I decided to take a solo trip to get inspired, and meet with the only 2 readers I knew I had there. I was in heavy fantasy mode, dreaming about what it would be like to quit my job at MTV and do what I love - and also bring my brand to the U.K. In this episode I share that story and also talk about the importance of patience and the magic of believing in something when nobody else can see it but you.

A few months ago, my publisher reached out to me to let me know that they wanted ME on the cover of my new book (insert freak out moment here!) I had a TON of emotions flowing through me when I got the news – I was super flattered, nervous, excited, anxious - you name it. I happily agreed, but kind of put it out of my head until a few days ago when my editor emailed me to say they had scheduled the shoot – and it was happening in less than 2 weeks!

For anyone listening who has ever had a big event – whether it was your wedding, your own book cover, your brand photo shoot, a big presentation – ANYTHING like that – you know the feeling of paranoia that sweeps over you when you’re just a few days away from that big day.

I felt those nervous feelings creeping in when I learned about the shoot, but this time, I was able to stop myself in my tracks and flip that anxiety into peacefulness by RECLAIMING my POWER. Rather than stressing out, I decided to get into action and start doing confidence-building activities that would make me feel good. And I want to share the EXACT steps I took with you guys so that you can use them as inspiration if you find yourself in a similar situation where your insecurity takes over.

This episode’s power mantra:

Confidence is available to me at all times.

I used to haaaate working out, and I found that any time I tried eating healthier it felt like a chore. But a few years ago, everything changed for me. I've been able to reprogram my mind and not only get motivated and excited to live a healthier lifestyle, but know exactly how to get back on the wagon when I fall off (because we all fall off). If you're looking for tips on getting and staying inspired to exercise and treat your body well, then this episode is for you. We'll explore the mind/body connection and how powerful it is to recognize the other benefits of living better beyond weight loss or looking more toned. I know this chat will push you to start demanding more for yourself, and do it all from a place of love and self-compassion!

Has anyone ever told you to be more realistic? Well I've got news for you: reality is completely different for everyone. And nobody has the right to tell you what yours should look like! For years, people told me I was living in a dream world and guess what? I am! And it's fabulous. When I look around at my life, it looks totally different than most people's, but it's real for me. And your fantasy world can be real for you, too.

In this episode, I am giving you my personal step-by-step guide to dreaming BIG and embodying the woman you want to be.

This episode's POWER MANTRA:

"My thoughts create my reality. And my reality can be as fabulous as I choose."

Have you ever had one of those days where you just feel awesome? Everything feels in flow, you feel clear, energized, ideas are flowing, you feel creative and just in the zone? That is what it means to be in a high vibe. It’s basically that feeling where you believe EVERYTHING is possible and nothing can get in your way. (I love those days!)

On the flip side, there’s that state of being in a LOW vibration. That’s where you feel stuck, frustrated, jealous, BROKE, drained. All those crappy feelings that NOBODY has time for.

If you’ve struggled with getting into that HIGH VIBE state, there are some ways you can shift your energy instantly so that you can feel fabulous and start attracting amazing things into your life and I'm sharing them all in this episode.

I'm also sharing a personal story about how I shifted my vibration before leaving my full-time job to pursue my dreams. Because I do not believe we can live our best lives while we're in a low vibration. All change starts with our ENERGY.

 

POWER QUOTES from this episode:

"You have every opportunity in every moment of every day to choose a high vibration."

"What we attract is a direct reflection of our energetic state."

 

This episode's MANTRA:

"My natural vibration is of joy, clarity, energy and love. I redirect any thoughts that do not serve my highest self."

Most of us learned from a young age to equate success with money and power. We hold high-powered CEOs, rich entrepreneurs and celebrities on pedestals, assuming that because they are “successful,” they have it all. We click through their Instagram feeds in awe, we binge-watch their reality television shows, and we spend our hard-earned money to see them speak and perform. But do we ever wonder if they are actually HAPPY?

I invite you to redefine success with me today. I invite you to acknowledge that SUCCESS IS A STATE OF MIND. Something we all have access to. Something we can choose to tap into. And in this episode, I'm showing you how.

Power quotes from this episode:

"When we operate from a place of power, we understand that if we believe we are successful, then we are."

"I invite you to acknowledge that success is a state of mind and it is something we all have access to."

Have you ever found yourself clicking around on Instagram or Facebook innocently enough, looking for “inspiration” – only to find yourself feeling totally consumed by someone else's life or business? I know its happened to me, and its happened to pretty much EVERY single woman I know.

In this episode, I'm giving you actionable tips for how to get out of "compare and despair" mode, elevate your thinking, and stop thinking about what SHE'S got and start focusing on what YOU have.

Power quotes from this episode:

"One of the most common qualities of the evolved woman, as I love to call her, is that she does not allow feelings of comparison to swallow her whole."

"When you have mastered yourself, you naturally celebrate another woman: her beauty, her success, and her accomplishments."

"When you stand in your own power, competition dissolves."
