    Talk 30 to Me

    Talk 30 to Me

    It’s My 30th Birthday!! As I begin this new chapter in my life, I’m taking time to share some of my biggest takeaways from my 20s which include being open to new experiences, defining what success is for myself and understanding that this is NOT as good as it gets.

    Key Takeaways:
    You will not have all the answers in your 20s. Embrace the journey of self-discovery even if it means not having everything figured out.Imperfection is part of the process. You'll stumble, make errors, and that's absolutely fine—mistakes don't define you.The art of exploration also involves recognizing when to let go, when to move forward, and when to release what no longer serves you.The comparison game is nonexistent when you've defined what success means to you—because that's what truly matters.30 isn't a finish line—it's a starting line. It's not an end; it's the launchpad of new beginnings.
    Join me in celebrating this milestone as I raise a toast to what's ahead in this new decade. Cheers to 30!

Purpose Over Perfection

Meaux got me together in "purpose over perfection". I struggle with following through on my ideas because I try to be perfect. After listening to this episode, I feel motivated to start my business again. Thanks Meaux!!!

Too Real!

Meaux does not disappoint! I love everything that this podcast stands for...including the name! I really appreciate that she is candid about her experiences and doesn't take herself too seriously. It's the right amount of realness and the right amount of humor that makes you feel like you're getting advice from a friend.
