Joyful Ambition – A Reclamation
How GOOD can you let it be?
I was asked this poignant question a few years ago and it really helped me see that sometimes I was shutting out the good with the bad.
I wasn’t allowing the good.
The same has felt true for my own ambition.
The truth is that my ambition has scared me.
That’s no longer the case. Now, I see “joyful ambition” as a possibility for me – for all of us.
I’m sharing how this is true and what’s required for it to happen on the podcast this week.
Specifically in this episode, I’ll share with you:
0.55 – My word of the year (it chose me, I didn’t choose it)
1:57 – I ask you to consider, are you shutting down the *good* things along with the bad?
2:19 – How I felt about ambition before
3:26 – The definition of ambition and why I love it
5:50 – Some common phrases people say about ambition (these are fascinating!)
9:16 – 3 things required for joyful ambition
I share all this in hopes of resparking your ambition if needed, and encouraging you to allow yourself to be the ambitious person you are.
3 Phases of a Small Business
Do you know which phase of business you are in?
You will after listening to this episode!
I’m breaking down the 3 core phases of business so you can determine which you are in and have some guidance and framework for where to focus and how to create your unique strategies for each phase.
These have been so helpful for myself and my clients and helping us understand our business’ needs. I hope you will find them useful too.
In this episode I’ll cover:
1:08: Why I’m sharing these phases with you
1:54: Where this concept of 3 phases of business comes from
2:39: The first of the 3 phases
13:49: Phase 2 and what this phase means for your business
31:23: Phase 3 and how you shift in this phase
45:39: A bonus – what phase 3 develops into

Be an Aligned DOER in Your Business
Are you ready to take aligned action (aka be a DOER) in your business?
If you are as ambitious as I think you are, I bet the answer is yes.
Sometimes we get stuck in the “BE” part of ourselves, dreaming of our desires and who we are becoming that we disconnect from the DO part.
I offer you my knowledge and support in how you can enjoy both the BE and the DO (and the HAVE) in this episode.
Specifically, I’ll share with you:
1:14: The “Be, Do, Have” framework
2:26: What I want us authentic and ambitious people to “take back” that will actually help us create in our life and work
4:15: How we can create more aligned ambition and achievement
6:41: What I do when I’m really committed
11:29: Some of the ways I sell in an aligned way
13:25: My prayer and hope for you for this new year
14:01 A question for you to ask to help you become a more aligned DOER
You CAN be authentic and ambitious AND A DOER.
Ready for more?

Permission to Do & BE Different in 2021
Let’s slow down for a moment together.
As we come to the end of the year, I know many of us are racing to see 2020 end.
I understand why we are doing this, but I want to also encourage you to pause for a moment and reflect.
The truth is, January 1st can mean something big for us, or it doesn’t have to mean anything.
We don’t know what may change in 2021.
We can’t control most of it.
We can, however, control how we slow down, what we give our attention to and think about, and who we want to be.
Now is a great time to reflect on this year and who you want to BE in 2021.
I’m even making it easier for you by giving you the 3 questions I’m reflecting on these days (including my fave leadership question!) on the podcast this week.
Tune into this last episode of 2020 to give yourself the time to reflect (plus I’m dropping some big news about the show moving forward that you won’t want to miss) and if it feels right, share what pops up for you with me on Instagram or Facebook.
See you in 2021.
Authentic & Ambitious,

End of Year Wrap Up – Lessons Learned in 2020
I’m coming at you fired up about some lessons I learned in 2020.
2020 has been a weird year, right? With Covid and the election I spent a portion of 2020 stressed and overthinking, but I’m glad I did.
Because these lessons didn’t come easily, but they are BIG lessons.
They’re big lessons for me, for you and for the world.
Enjoy this little recap and dive into my 2020 lessons and if you reflect too, I bet you have quite a few lessons you learned this year as well. I’d love to hear them, share what feels right with me on Instagram or Facebook!

What Open Heart, Slow Tango, Big Profit Really Meant
Did you pick a word of the year this year?
I picked 3 (y’all know I’m not concise, why start now!).
You may remember, they were :
Of course, I thought I knew what those meant for me this year. Then 2020 happened.
Now that I have actually experienced these words this year I have some reflections on them and what they really meant.
Sharing this fun recap with you this week on the podcast and invite you to reflect back on your word of the year as well, did it mean what you thought it would?

Dayum, she's good!
Allison has the coaching and leadership IT FACTOR and this podcast gives me life every week. I'm continually blown away by her smarts, humor, and honesty. There are episodes I listen to more than once because the message is so dang good. Include this podcast in your weekly routine. You life and work will be better because of it.
So genuine, raw and authentic it’s challenging to hear at times. I’ve been struck with truth and have had multiple realizations and epiphanies while listening!! Truth, discomfort, growth- in that order ;) Allison opens the curtain and brings it 🙏🏻
Allison is the real deal
Allison is one of the most generous, honest and soul-centered business coaches I have ever met. She shows what it's really like to create a life and a business that connects us more deeply to ourselves. I love listening her raw, honest perspective. A must- listen.
