    EP178: (Part 1) Intrinsic Leadership: Made for Women Reluctant to Lead

    EP178: (Part 1) Intrinsic Leadership: Made for Women Reluctant to Lead

    Traditional models of leadership are not built for women. Women think that they will have to over-deliver and over-own more than they already are. They think leadership will be a drain on their already limited time and energy.
    I think it is time for a completely new way to look at leadership. We need leaders that are driven from within, who are standing in their power and grounded in themselves. We need to reject broken masculine models, heal our wounds and step into intrinsic leadership.
    We are tackling this juicy topic in a two-part series and in part one we’re exposing all the things that keep women in reluctant leadership.

    EP177: Embrace Your Natural Cycles for More Success & Freedom

    EP177: Embrace Your Natural Cycles for More Success & Freedom

    I am a big believer in following your natural rhythm in both life and business. I know that I have very distinct periods of activity and output versus periods of rest and contemplation. When I fully embrace this push and pull, I am more likely to feel grounded and work in my genius. When I get pulled out of this rhythm, it is a lot harder for me to get anything done or feel good while doing it. 
    That’s what Laura and I are digging into this week as we discuss our own natural cycles and how we honor them. We also talk about how today’s business environment (and the world) tries to get us to be constantly “on” and how we can resist this pressure.

    EP176: Hire the Team that Will Take YOU to the Next Level

    EP176: Hire the Team that Will Take YOU to the Next Level

    I have made huge strides in the way I think about hiring. I am connecting with the people I really need in my business and getting things off my plate that I don’t want to do - and I am doing it all in a way that feels great. 
    I didn’t used to feel this way about hiring at all. I thought building a team would be exhausting and time consuming, and I was worried about giving up control over every little aspect of my business. But as I have grown and dreamed up bigger dreams for my business, I have realized that business is ultimately not designed to be done alone. If I want to have the impact I know I am capable of having, I need help.
    In this episode Laura and I are talking all about hiring, and not just for business but for life in general. We talk about how to find the right people instead of accepting whatever opportunities or people come our way, and how to trust ourselves enough to know the difference.

    EP175: Being the True CEO of Your Business

    EP175: Being the True CEO of Your Business

    Do you think of yourself as the CEO of your business? I know for me “CEO” used to sound too… big. Or complicated. Or stressful. It sounded like the opposite of what I wanted my business to be.
    But recently I have been playing with the idea that I can and should see myself as the CEO of my business, and that I get to decide what that means to me. I don’t have to follow the blueprint of CEOs we see in our lives and in the media - I can be a CEO that aligns with her own values and her own strengths and so carves her own path.
    Laura and I are digging into what it takes to become the CEO that you and your business really need and why we as women need to step into this kind of leadership.
    I talk about why I always thought that I wanted a small business and what has changed my mind lately, and Laura shares a bit about the sheer creative power we can access when we start to think of ourselves as a true CEO.

    EP174: How to Come Up for Air and Avoid Burnout in Stressful Times

    EP174: How to Come Up for Air and Avoid Burnout in Stressful Times

    Usually our lives are made up of patterns that ebb and flow. As a business owner, things in your business may rise and fall by the month or the quarter. But this year has thrown all of our regular cycles and routines up into the air and sent us scrambling to make new ones. All that scrambling has meant many of us have been “on” for months now, and that we haven’t come up for air or taken the breaks we normally would.
    Whether you have been feeling stuck and stagnant or you have been running nonstop, it is time to do the opposite. This episode is all about disrupting whatever routine you have developed lately and checking in with what you really need.
    Laura and I talk about burnout, staycations, and why each of us needs to come up for air right now. We chat about reconnecting with our bigger visions and why this is the fuel we need to keep moving forward and build a new future for us all.

    EP173: Redesign Everything for Your Strengths and Forget Your Weaknesses

    EP173: Redesign Everything for Your Strengths and Forget Your Weaknesses

    This year has made it clear that we need to rethink so much about our lives and communities. And I know that in a lot of ways this is scary, but I think it provides us with a huge opportunity, too. 
    Now is the time to dig into our deepest desires and bring them to life. Now is the time to release old patterns and make room for new ones. Now is the time to tap into our strengths without self-consciousness or fear and let go of our “weaknesses”. 
    In this week’s episode Laura and I are talking all about why we need to redesign absolutely everything. We’re also discussing the weight women often feel to compensate for our “weaknesses” and why we should simply focus on our strengths and ask others to help us fill in the gaps.
