Ep. 9: How to Stop Procrastinating (3 Simple Steps)
Today, I want to talk about procrastination.
Such a juicy topic!
And I know, you know what I’m talking about….
Snoozing your alarm clock
No going to that yoga class that you said you were going to go to
Ignoring that email that you know you need get back to
Putting off doing the ONE thing you know you need to be doing in your business…
We all experience procrastination, especially as entrepreneurs…
But WHY do we do it so much and most importantly, how do we stop it?
First, please know that procrastination is TOTALLY NORMAL…and can actually be a GOOD sign. :)
If you procrastinate, if you put things off, if you have things on your to-do list that you aren’t crossing off. There’s nothing wrong with you.
In fact, it might even mean there’s something, right.
So, what do I mean by that?
There are two categories of people who procrastinate the most. The first is grad students… people who have a ton of pressure, a real bar for achievement, with a lot to do in a short amount of time.
The other category of people who procrastinate the most is entrepreneurs. So if you are starting your own business or you’ve been in business for a while and you find yourself procrastinating. You are not alone.
The important thing about procrastination is knowing that sometimes it’s actually a sign that you’re a little bit of a genius. Pretty awesome, right?
So grad students and entrepreneurs… both really smart and really ambitious.
So why do we hold ourselves back? And why do we stay stuck?
The reason is because we have such a high capacity for visioning where we want to go. We know what we want to do. We can almost see it and taste it and feel it. We know we have a heart to serve. We know what we’re capable of. But, where we’re at, is often quite far from the vision that we have for ourselves.
And when there’s a major disconnect between where we are, and where we want to go, it creates a sense of overwhelm.
And so, we use procrastination as a tool to relieve stress and help calm that sense of overwhelm that inevitably comes when you are a visionary leader, a creative or someone who has big expectations and dreams for what you want to create with your life.
So, YAY if you’re a procrastinator… it probably means you’re quite smart, you’re quite ambitious and you really do have a big vision for what you want to create in your life.
We simply use procrastination as a tool to reduce stress, to give ourselves a moment of “being off the hook” and momentarily ignoring all that we need to do.
So the first thing to do is to really get clear that you’re NOT alone. There’s nothing wrong with you. This is totally par for the course. And often means they are actually on the right track and not that you’re doing something wrong. It doesn’t mean that you’re not going to be an amazing coach, consultant or professional or that you don’t have what it takes.
So listen in for 3 really simple tips that you can start putting into practice right now to start to grind away at that overwhelm and that stress… so that you procrastinate less and find more ease and flow in your day.
STEP 1: Break things Down into Small Steps
When we break things down into small, simple steps we are able to get out of overwhelm and into ACTION more quickly.
Take action now: pick ONE thing on your to-do list that you have been putting off… what is the smallest step you can take right now/today to make it happen?
STEP 2: Set a Time Limit
According to Parkinson’s Law, our task expands to fill the time we allot for completion. In other words, if we have all week to submit a proposal by Friday at 5pm we will often send it at 4:59pm when we are down to the wire (I know you know what I’m talking about ;)), conversely if you give yourself 1 hour to complete it and challenge yourself to get it done in that time, you o
Ep. 8: Are you Meant to Be a Healer? Let's Find Out!
Today I want to talk about why so many women feel so afraid to stand up and own their place as a Spiritual Leader and Healer on the planet right now.
I have heard it from at least three or four women this week who said…
“I know I am meant for more.”
“I know that I’m here to do healing work, I have had gifts since I was a little girl where I could see things, feel things, and heal others.”
“I’ve always had the sense of wanting to give back and really be in service to the world doing healing work”
“I’ve been told ever since I was young that I’m too sensitive, that my “gifts” are woo, woo, or hocus-pocus, or witchy work. People always say: ‘how could you ever even think about making a living doing that?!”
So let’s talk about that, shall we? Because honestly, right now more than ever, we need the ones who can heal to step up and do so.
Are you meant to be a healer?
Please let me know if anything that I shared resonates or like hits home and what are you taking from this week’s training?
Remember, you’re not alone and you don’t need to figure this all out alone.
I encourage you to take action now…whether that’s joining us in The Aligned Female Entrepreneur program, or stepping up and claiming what you’re creating for the world, or maybe it’s just starting to think about this in a new way and consciously CHOOSING to contribute to this being the new reality.
I love you. I believe in you. Keep going.
And I’ll talk to you next week!

Ep. 6: 3 Simple Steps to Go from Busy to Super Productive
“I’m super busy!”
We allll hear it and we all say it, but the truth is that being busy isn’t the same as being productive.
Recently I talked to a client who was getting so much done, but she could feel that she was shifting to an old energy that she used to bring to the job she had before starting her own business.
“I’m noticing that I’m not taking time to celebrate myself, acknowledge everything I’ve done, and relax! I’m almost obsessed with being in this busy place of moving forward,” she told me.
Can you relate?
When we move at such a frantic pace, we can FEEL the anxiety and the inner pressure.
But we’re not sure how to let go of that frantic energy without feeling like everything is going to fall apart.
In this episdoe, I’m sharing with you a few simple ways to go from busy, frantic energy to a place of feeling:
productive clear focused extremely capable of getting stuff done …WITHOUT all the stress that comes with being busy.
(Yes, it’s really possible!)
What do you do when you are feeling that frantic, busy energy? How do you move from a place of being busy to a place of being productive?

Ep. 4: 3 Steps for Stepping into Your Higher Self
We all have secret longings in our hearts — an inner knowing that we’re meant for something great in the world.
And that’s not just meant for some of us, that’s meant for all of us. Every single human being was born with a desire in their heart, a purpose of their soul, that is meant to be expressed.
What does this look like?
Maybe you’re in a job and it feels good…but not GREAT.
Or you have a body that you feel is pretty healthy…but you know you could be more fit.
It might be a relationship…you don’t really know if you’re with THE ONE and you’re not sure what to do.
It can show up in a multitude of ways, but the core issue is that we KNOW we’re capable of something, or we feel like something might be possible for us.
But we’re not sure how to get it.
We’re not sure how to begin.
We’re not sure how to make it REAL.
That keeps most women really stuck. We stay in a job or a relationship or a body we hate, often for years.
In the video below, I’ve put together some simple tips that you can use to move beyond feeling stuck.
It’s time to step into that more powerful, expressed, radiant version of yourself.
Now, I’d like to hear from you!
In what areas of your life do you feel stuck? What can you do this week to begin to step into your higher self?
