    Meet my mom

    Meet my mom

    This is a really special episode because my guest today is my Mom, Margarita Ortiz! 
    She is going to be sharing her story with us.  She's been a single mother who has struggled her whole life with bi- polar disorder and she has done a lot of work on herself and has completely transformed her life.
    My Mom and I have faced challenges and struggles in our relationship, parent- child relationships are tricky!
    Our childhoods and the way we were raised affects us and shapes who we become as adults.  So if truly we want to understand ourselves… why we have blocks and the complicated relationships that we have with the people who raised us, we need to first understand our parents and have compassion for their story.  
    My Mom is my hero, she never gave up on me and she helped shape who I am today. I'm so excited to share with you who Margie is, her story, her background and the experiences that made her the woman she is today.
    Enjoy the episode!

    Si ella puede, YO puedo! How these Latinas in the Sistahood are changing the world

    Si ella puede, YO puedo! How these Latinas in the Sistahood are changing the world

    Todays episode is FUEGOOOO!!!

    I hope you're ready hermana!

    I had the absolute honour of interviewing 5 of my fellow Latina Sistahood members who have been healing generational trauma and completely transforming their lives and shifting the landscape of the Latin community.

    As a Latina who grew up in an environment where working on yourself and healing was unheard of or taboo, it was very important for me to be the example of whats possible when WOC do this work.

    When you see yourself through other women, it gives you hope and inspiration to keep going.

    These women do just that for me.

    Each one with their own powerful story and legacy to leave.

    I hope you see yourself in their remarkable stories and realise that Si Ella puede, TU PUEDES.

    How to build TRUST in your Romantic Relationships

    How to build TRUST in your Romantic Relationships

    Relationships are such a massive topic, one I have done quite a few episodes on.

    This episode in particular was a listener request.

    I recently asked my Instagram audience to tell me what they wanted to hear on the podcast and I got this question a few times.

    Shout out to Mel who asked me "How did you learn to trust your husband (Hamish) after being in multiple relationships with people who treated you badly"

    I had many "failed" relationships before my marriage to Hamish and each of them taught me so much about MYSELF and how I was treating me.

    Today I share how you can start to build trust and create an incredible romantic relationship that lights you up and fulfils you.

    It is possible to find DEEP, lasting love. I have it and I never thought I would.

    I hope this episode inspires you to pull your journal out and get to "Sherlock Holmesing"

    Want to take this work deeper?

    How I made $500K+ on Instagram

    How I made $500K+ on Instagram

    In 2018, my husband Hamish and I were broke. Some weeks we couldn’t afford the basics, let alone little luxuries. I even found myself scrounging around the backseat of my car, trying to get enough change to buy a loaf of bread.
    It was in the shower one afternoon when I had an epiphany – it was the ‘aha’ moment that led to me finally pursuing my dream of becoming a confidence coach.
    So I started with what I had … the fire and passion to show up and create the community and connections I desired. 
    Join me in this episode, as I share with you how we built our business on instagram and went from $0 to over $500k
    Yup, it’s TOTALLY possible. 
    Even if you know one knows who you are yet and you have a smaller audience.
    If you commit to SHOWING UP you can create more money and more impact too.

    When Friendship Gets Tricky

    When Friendship Gets Tricky

    Today's episode is on a topic a lot of my listeners have requested I talk about… FRIENDSHIPS!
    So many of us struggle with balancing friendships, especially as we grow and evolve.
    We think we are not supposed to shift friends or let go of friendships that no longer serve. 
    This simply isn't true, as we change and shift so will friendships and sometimes we have to let some friends go.
    I've found that a lot of us really struggle with communicating clearly what is happening for us as we grow and other people around us are not.  And then things can get a bit tricky..
    Feelings can get hurt, resentments can build, and assumptions can be made.  
    When we find ourselves in the position of having outgrown a friendship it is our responsibility to communicate clearly and to take a step back and assess how and why we attracted these friends into our lives.  
    How do we do this?  
    Tune in as I share some insights and action steps you can take to help you navigate when your friendships get tricky!
