In today's quickie episode, I'm sharing my top tips on how to gain confidence and level up your skills as an entrepreneur.

This power chat will show you how.

Today I'm bringing you an encore episode that I feel really strongly about sharing again. It's my conversation with my friend and peer, Amanda Frances. Amanda is my most-frequent guest, I've never had anyone on the show 3 times before, so this is a big deal. She is a self-made multi-millionaire, thought leader, business coach, self-proclaimed "money queen" - and most importantly, a good friend of mine who I respect and admire very much.

I decided to share this episode again because I feel like now more than ever, we are in a time where people are looking at their lives — and at whether their relationship with money and the dynamics at play in their finances do or don’t serve them, feel good to them, or work for them.

Today I'm chatting with Morgan Bloomer, stylist and buyer for Phoenix + Kate boutique, and self-proclaimed "outfit mixologist." Morgan is literally a beam of sunshine, a total girl's girl and has an eye for style AND business. She is one of my dearest clients and I've had the privilege of learning about her vision + her business from the inside out. We worked together during the Coronavirus outbreak to not only help pivot her business model in the interim, but also maintain a positive and creative mindset necessary for our current climate.

In this episode, we talk about starting before you're ready, the importance of relationships in your business, how Morgan had to pivot her retail brick and mortar business during COVID-19, why the way we dress impacts the experience we have in the world, the connection between style and confidence, her brand of "closet therapy" and so much more. Grab a cocktail and get ready to dive in!

I don't know about you, but I am guilty of what I refer to as, "future tripping." This is where you start to think WAY too much about the future, and almost obsess about things that haven't even happened yet - or may never happen! Future tripping can cause anxiety, because we take ourselves out of the moment. I find I'm much more at peace, much more creative, much more focused, and much more powerful when I can just be in the NOW. When I can be mindful of the present moment and truly sink into that.
 
I have a very special guest today that I'm so excited to share with you. We are going to dig into this topic, as well as so many other aspects of mindfulness and what it looks like to feel more present, so that you can create the life of your dreams.

It’s incredibly important to speak our dreams into existence. That means speaking positively and optimistically about the things we want, and talking about them with certainty that they will happen. Of course, we must do the work, but the way we speak about our dreams is crucial to their success. We must believe, beyond a shadow of a doubt, that we will experience good things that help drive our vision forward. We must believe that the right people will show up, at the right time, and guide us on our journeys. We must believe that we will be successful, and we must be bold enough to say it out loud. In this episode, I'm sharing my tips on how to do just that. Grab a pen and a notebook and get ready to dive in! This is a good one.

Around 2014, I met a woman named Noelle Santos on the internet. Neither of us can recall exactly how we “met,” but we both recall Noelle contacting me through Snapchat, asking for advice around an idea she had to bring a bookstore to the Bronx, where none existed at the time. At the time, Noelle was working a cushy, corporate job on Wall Street, earning six-figures and putting her accounting degree to good use. She was comfortable, but after seeing a petition on Facebook to urge her local congress members to build a bookstore in the Bronx after the last Barnes & Noble went out of business, she became extremely uncomfortable.

The Bronx is a borough of 1.5 million people and ten colleges, and also Noelle’s hometown, where she currently lives. Furious and frustrated, she signed the petition, but immediately decided she wasn’t about to wait for the politics to align to get her bookstore. And in that moment, she got to work.

I sat down with Noelle recently at The Lit Bar, the bookstore/wine bar she built herself from the ground-up five years later after crowdfunding support and a whole lot of hustle. As we sipped on our wine (she had a Cab, I had a Chardonnay), we reminisced on those earlier conversations we had as she was rallying to get the store created. We talked about the importance of choosing yourself to get things done. We talked about the criticism she’s faced despite her good intentions, and the daily challenges that arise while embarking on a brand-new industry.

Get ready for this empowering conversation!

Do you remember growing up and reading those Choose Your Own Adventure books? They were a series of children's gamebooks where each story is written from a second-person point of view, with the reader assuming the role of the protagonist, and making choices that determine the main character's actions and the plot outcome. The stories were formatted so that after a few pages of reading, you'd have a few different options, which would lead to more options, and ultimately a few different endings.

As I began intentionally designing my own life, I always felt like I was in one of those books. I am well aware that I have endless options, and I am the creator of my story. We all are. In this short, but powerful episode, I'm giving you a loving kick in the butt and some major inspiration to start choosing your own adventure and living the life you know you're meant to live.

I don't know about you, but I have spent a lot of time thinking about my past. Ruminating over situations where I could have done things differently, obsessing over why I didn't do things sooner, wishing I could have said something different.

And do you know where that's gotten me? Absolutely nowhere.

I love the mantra, "Control the controllable" because it reminds me that worrying about the past, or things no longer in our hands, is a waste of time.

Every single thing you do today is weaving you into the woman you want to be tomorrow. Every single thought you think is shaping your future self. Every single action you take is setting up the world around you to either support you, or sabotage you.

In this episode, we’ll talk about how to shift our energy from focusing on our past to creating our future.

Have you ever found yourself dimming your own light to keep others comfortable? Maybe you don't want to share a major win in your business because you're worried you'll come across as bragging. Maybe you're worried about turning off your colleagues by being proud of your accomplishments. Maybe you're worried about being "too happy" or "too successful" because you think someone else may be annoyed by it?

Whatever the case - it needs to end. When we dim our own light, we send a message that women should not take up space. When we shrink ourselves, we send a message that being confident is something to be ashamed of.

It's time to celebrate our success! It's time to acknowledge how far we've come. This episode will tell you WHY it's so important and HOW to do it.

What happens when our dreams come true and we don't recognize them? In this episode, I'm sharing the importance of visualizing success as a woman in business, and also being open to changing that vision at any time, for any reason. Our best work comes from feeling our best, and we can't get there if we're clinging to old ideals and never checking in with ourselves. What's important to you right now? What do you value? What kind of woman do you want to be? How do you want to feel? We'll dig into all of these questions and more in this juicy episode.

I want you to ask yourself this question honestly: am I more focused on building a business, or building my social media following? Highly successful business women aren't concerned with likes, followers, or little blue check marks. They aren't concerned with how famous or loved they appear on the internet. They're concerned with making an impact and making money. In this episode, I'm sharing some real talk about what it takes to shift from Instagrammer to business woman and how to become intentional about your time.

Whew! It's nearly September, ladies! Where did summer go!? As we close out another season, I'm back with a life update, and some thoughts around why we should make (and break) our own rules, what it looks like to choose hope over fear, and why I am a huge fan of CHANGE.

I like to say I see the world through rosé colored glasses. I make it a point to choose optimistic, positive, blissful thoughts, which create an optimistic, positive, blissful reality. The first step to making any real change in our lives and our businesses is to change our energy. Our energy, or vibration, is the frequency we put out into the world that determines the quality of our experiences. Getting in a high vibe is the quickest way to supercharge your soul and skyrocket your success. We cannot create quality content from a low vibration. In this episode, I will help you identify what is, and what is not serving you, raise your frequency, and create your energetic outline for your success.

We need to talk about mental health.

As someone who has struggled with her weight for most of her entire life (I joined weight watchers at 11 years old) I know what it feels like to have a completely dysfunctional relationship with food and with my body. After becoming a professional dieter, and losing and gaining weight like it was my job, I was done. Done beating myself up. Done starving. Done binging. Done putting the keys to my self-worth inside a pair of skinny jeans. I spent years reprogramming my brain and finding ways to accept myself for who I am and what I look like, regardless of what the number on the scale said. I immersed myself in the body positivity movement and it saved my sanity. I finally learned to love myself – fully. I felt better, like I could breathe again.

But at the same time, I knew I wasn't my fully being my best self if I was overweight, and on the road to putting myself at risk for disease. Not to mention, not feeling entirely confident in my skin. Yes, I loved myself. But I didn't love my reflection because I knew, deep down, it wasn't me. Being 100% honest here.

And then recently it hit me – you CAN be body positive. You CAN love your body. And STILL want it to be leaner, stronger, smaller, and healthier. You can love your body, and want to make it better.

I had made “weight loss” a dirty term because I thought wanting to lose weight meant you didn’t love yourself. And that’s completely untrue.

What a revelation.

And we all know a good revelation leads to a revolution…

In this episode, I'm sharing how I gained a completely NEW perspective on weight loss, and have already lost over 10 pounds in 3 weeks in the most positive, effortless way possible.

You know who I love to follow online? Grassroots girls who are doing business THEIR way. Girls running shit out of their bedrooms. Girls with an insatiable hunger for success, believing with every single ounce of their soul that their small business in their small town is WORTH it.

I don't follow the "big" coaches, public figures, or super popular entrepreneurs. I am alllll about the DIY hustle. I don't need to see fancy photo shoots at expensive hotels in faraway exotic lands. I wanna see you in your living room with your dog packing up makeup orders. I wanna see your selfies, in your workout clothes, helping others, in your little corner of the world.

Unknown. Underground. Girls with SICK potential and grit and glamour and an unfuckwithable drive. THAT is what inspires me. In this quick episode, I'm telling you why PROGRESS beats PERFECTION any day of the week. If you've been holding back because you don't feel you have "enough" to offer, then this episode is for you.

It's my birthday! As I enter my 38th year of life and my 10th year as a blogger-turned-coach-turned-author-turned self-empowered woman, I have a LOT on my mind. I've been thinking about how I want to continue showing up in the world. As a woman. As a business woman. As someone who has a lot of eyes on her, and a massive platform to express herself through and help women.

I'm going to admit something: I sometimes edit myself. I sometimes hold back on saying things I really want to say because I don't want to offend people. Or ruffle feathers. Know what's interesting? I NEVER did this in the beginning of my career. Because nobody was really paying attention. And if they weren’t paying attention, they weren’t judging. And if I wasn’t being judged I felt safe.

But as I've grown and become more of a public figure, I fell into the habit of biting my tongue. This isn't to say I haven't been real, but I've held back on expressing my thoughts at times because frankly, I just don't want to deal with people's reactions. I don't like negativity.

But I just can't go on muting myself because someone may have a problem with something I do or say. I can't risk MY truth because of someone else's response to it. In this episode, I'm digging into why we should all be unapologetically ourselves, why that doesn't mean we're being "bitches", and why we need to take some of the pressure off others who we admire.

In this episode, I'm breaking down how and why last week was my biggest week EVER in business. From the mindset shifts I made, to what I needed to let go of to make it happen, I'm letting you guys in for a behind-the-scenes look so that you can use some of these strategies to push yourself and cultivate your own success. I'm also sharing my perspective on why you shouldn't be scared to put yourself out there and sell your products and services and why it's really SO much easier than you think.

If you're an entrepreneur who has been in business for less than 5 years and you're still not experiencing the success you desire, consider joining my brand new masterclass: StyleYourMindForSuccess.com. I'm giving you 7 weeks of on-demand exclusive coaching in both audio and digital content that will help you make the mindset shifts necessary for reaching the next level in your business and in your life.

Happy International Women's Day! You ladies know I preach about the importance of supporting women every single day. I write about it in my books, I coach my clients on it, and I discuss it in my girl gang, the Slay Baby Collective. It's not just an annual holiday for me; I talk about it in television segments, on the radio, and on this podcast every single week. It’s my passion and my life’s work. On social media, one of the ways to promote this message and connect with other like-minded women is to use hashtags like #girlpower, #womenempoweringwomen, and #endgirlhate, to name a few. If you’ve searched these tags, you’ve probably seen more and more accounts popping up lately with the same message. And it’s not just Instagram that’s making girl power so cool lately. Pins, patches, and tee shirts available at major retailers like Nordstrom and Bloomingdales with cutesy terms like “Girl Gang” are popping up everywhere. But the question is, are women really practicing what they post, and wear? And will they practice it beyond a few months of pretty quotes on social media and a sweatshirt from Wildfox? I ask this, not because I’m doubtful. If anything, I’m hopeful. I think it’s wonderful that women are seeing the importance of getting behind each other. But I want to encourage all of us to check in with ourselves and make sure we’re taking these terms and applying them to our lives and our careers.

Empowering women means paying them too.

As some of you may know, I have been exploring my relationship with alcohol since the end of 2015. You can read more about my journey on the blog (click here), but I know I am not alone when I say drinking does not always serve me. In fact, it rarely does. Throughout the years, I've found myself hungover on way too many occasions, unable to reach my health and fitness goals, and just not operating at my optimal capacity. It has wreaked havoc on my confidence, left me in a bit of a fog at times, and hindered my spirit. I am ready to LEVEL UP in 2018, and booze isn't really a part of that program. I'm not saying I will never touch a drink again, but I am seriously cutting back - again. If you're considering a Dry January, an indefinite break from alcohol, or you just feel like you want to cut back a few days a week, then this episode may motivate you to do just that.

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. In this episode, I'm sharing a personal story around this, as well as some inspiration to start owning who you are, shining your light, and stop shrinking yourself for someone else's comfort. 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.

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."

“We can’t become what we need to be by remaining who we are” - Oprah.

When we release something from our lives, we allow ourselves to detach from thoughts, feelings, people, and situations that are no longer meant to take up space. Whether it’s a relationship that has run its course, or a job that is no longer a fit for you, or a home you once lived in, we must let go of these things to invite the new. We must let go of the past in order to evolve. And as I always say, an evolving mind is a healthy mind. In this episode, I'm giving you actionable tools on how to let go and start enjoying the next phase of your life.

I discovered the power of mantras and affirmations when I first read The Secret about eight years ago. As a word lover, I was so excited to learn how to choose words with intention to literally design my life. Ever since, I have created mantras for myself almost daily to remind me that I am in control of how I want to feel, and I am in control the way I want to live my life. It sounds simple, but we really do choose our thoughts, which ultimately shape the direction of our lives. In this episode, I'm sharing a few of my favorites and reminding you to think about what you're available for in your life. Enjoy!
