#093 - Why I’m Pressing Pause
I’m pressing pause on the podcast. This is going to allow me, as a business owner and leader, to take a step back and recalibrate, so that when I come back, I’m showing up at my absolute best. During this pause, there won’t be any new podcast content, but in my time “off”, I will be rethinking the podcast and creating my vision for it. I’ll also be working with my team in the back end of the business to help create organizational efficiency and get everything streamlined so that the business can make even more of an impact.
In this week’s episode of On Purpose, I talk with you about:
Why I’m pressing pause on the podcast Why I feel like it’s time to take a step back from content creation How to focus your creative energy so that it goes further Why working on the backend of your business is critical to growing as a business owner

#091 - Inspiration from Ariana Grande to Get Over Imposter Syndrome [REPLAY]
Due to Alex being sick, today’s solo episode is a replay of one of her favorite past episodes (Episode 037)!
Believe it or not, there was a time when I used to feel like the biggest fraud.
Today I’m an online business coach, but I first started my career as a photographer. I remember on my first few shoots I would show up full of nerves, wondering if I was worthy of being on the shoot, wondering if I’d know how to pose my client, or how to overcome the awkward silences.
I look back now and know that I was suffering from something called ‘imposter syndrome’. When you’re first getting started with *anything* in life, it can be very common to feel this sense of unease, as though you haven’t fully proven yourself to be worthy of whatever it is that you’re doing.
Well today I’ve got some advice on Imposter Syndrome for you, all inspired by pop princess Ariana Grande.
In this episode, I chat about:
putting yourself out there without shame embracing the new, awkward, clunky phase of your business how to get people's attention before launching a new product how to build upon momentum
I hope it inspires you as much as it did me.

Not too long ago, I came down with strong feelings of anxiety and overwhelm. My anxiety was my body's way of telling me that something was going on. I was taking too much on and I needed to slow down.
