If you've ever wondered what goes on "behind the chair" then you're in for a treat! In this episode, I chat with Terra Harvell, six-figure stylist, salon owner and educator, and founder and CEO of Harper Ellis Hair Co. Terra candidly shares why she's had to learn to fall in love with fear on her journey as a beauty entrepreneur, the importance of cultivating a strong community, and how she juggles it all as a multi-passionate business owner.
Terra has built a flourishing business behind the chair for nearly a decade and has turned her craft into a six-figure income. Her impressive resumé includes being the Founder and CEO of Harper Ellis Hair Co and owner of Salon Five Zero Four in Fort Smith, Arkansas, but she hasn't stopped there. After mastering the artistry of the business, Terra quickly realized you must provide the FULL package in order to be an industry leader. Cue The Harper Ellis Hair Co. Academy! Her Academy has educated hundreds of stylists digitally and in cities such as Fort Smith and Nashville. Not only has she educated on her exclusive hand-tied luxury hair extensions method, but she has also shared her knowledge of all things business and marketing that led her to becoming a six-figure stylist. Her dream is to share her valuable knowledge in hopes that it will help other stylists find as much success as she has found!

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.

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.

As women on a mission to change the world, our energy and overall wellness should be our priority. I don't know about you, but if I don't feel good, I can't accomplish everything I am determined to accomplish. I've been on a quest to improve my health over the past few years, learning everything I possibly can along the way. That's why I'm so thrilled for today's episode. I sat down with Charlotte Traas, director of education for New Chapter vitamins and supplements to talk all things gut health. You guys know my favorite mantra, "Trust your gut.

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 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.

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.
