Instagram vs Reality

Look at the left to see what im really working with today 🤣🤣🤣

We love the beautiful photos... Dont get me wrong. @womenbymag made me look amazing in this! The light, the room, the outfit, the hair, the makeup (thanks @cynfulmakeup for glamming me up!

Shoots like this are sometimes a part of my "workday" too but not on the reg!

The 2nd picture is more my jam when I am at home.

I'm in yoga pants because i am usually about to workout or I just finished working out, or because i really jusy like comfy bottoms. No makeup. Hair is frizzy and half blow dried because I didn't have enough time. Books, papers, planners, cords and all kinds of things around me. I am probably hungry because i forgot to eat. But I ALWAYS have warm beverage somewhere within reach.

Homemade Medicine Balls are my go to lately. Thanks to @ky_crook_on_purpose for the recipe! Its soooo good!

However... All of that is exactly why I do what I do anyway. Success to me is yoga pants and no makeup on a Monday.

Success is also stilletos and photoshoots on a Tuesday.

Both scenarios are very much a part of my life and i am here for it!

All this to say, we do what we do when we need to do it because we are CEOs.


We build empires. We make money. We change lives. We impact millions.

Whether you do it in fuzzy socks or stilletos is completely up to you. I'm cheering you on either way.

If you wanna share, I'd love to hear about your Monday!

TRUTH: Your Middle-Class Upbringing Will Keep You Broke As A Joke.

It's time we have the money conversation.

This message won't be for everyone. So, If you're feeling your blood boil by the thought of talking about money, keep scrolling.

Truth: your middle class upbringing will keep you broke as a joke.

The middle class mentality has always focused on:

1. Pay off debt - cuz Omg. Debt is your mortal enemy!

2. Save enough for 6 months. Rainy days come, the other shoe drops, gotta prepare for the worst!

3. Make sure you're putting away money for retirement - plan your entire career for this!

4. Make "just enough" for all of the above. Forget about the generations after you. You just teach them the same thing, right?

Yea. Even if ALL goes well, those are crappy goals. So, like I said... We need to have this conversation.

THIS may shock you - money makes your decisions. Money determines what part of town you live in, what house you buy (if you can buy one at all!), what college your kids choose, if you afford to take your fam on real vacation this year, or do we visit Grandpa. Again! Money decides whether or not you add a side of guac or nah. Ppl pay lip service to God/Faith/Trust. But let's be real. Money (or lack thereof) is making the choice.

Not saying it's right. Just saying it is. I watch people live like this EVERYDAY.

So, I plan to say in public what I've always taught in private with clients - a lot of that rests around money.

How to make it.
How to keep it.
How to stop being ashamed of wanting it.
How to have a healthy relationship with it.
How to trust yourself with more of it.
How to stop listening to people who don't have it give you advice about it.
How to heal from the awful things you've been taught about it.
How to align your purpose with it.
How to make money a tool, not a destination.
How to stop repelling it.
How to stop being afraid of spending it.
How to stop judging people who have it.

All the things. Order the mixtape.

Let's get this conversation started!!!
