    Can we chat about your regrets for a second?


    I hear you. You’re right.

    You would’ve, could’ve, and maybe even should’ve experienced something different.

    If you had done something different...

    But you didn’t.

    You did what you did, and now you’re here... somewhere you really don’t want to be, doing something you really don’t want to do.

    I’m pretty sure they call that regret- which really doesn’t have to exist because you still exist.

    You’re still your living, breathing self- which means your life is not over- which means you have the ability to do what you really want to do- where you want to do it- at anytime.

    I’m pretty sure that’s called not settling- which you have the right to do, at anytime.

    What I’m really trying to say is:

    Stop settling, beloved.


    Until Next Time...


    P.S. I figured out a way for me to remind you not to settle, every morning, before you leave the house.  It's my Don't Settle Reminder, Mug. Cute, right?  Get yours here.


    I'll spare you the "everything happens for a reason" speech


    The worst things you can say to someone who is hurting, anxious, doubtful, scared, overwhelmed, and tired of being tired is:

    get over iiiiitt...

    move ooooonn...

    let it gooooo...

    Or, here is one that will get you the side-eye, quick: everything happens for a reeeeasoooon.

    I don't want you to stay in your hurting, anxious, doubtful, scared, overwhelmed, and tired of being tired space.  But, I also don't want to get that side-eye.

    So do this instead:

    1. Feel what you feel. If you're feeling hurt, loss, overwhelmed, disappointed, betrayed, or whatever... It's not because you're weak, it's because you're human.

    2. Prepare yourself before dealing with it. Figure out the proper way to respond so that you don't react. Reacting just deals with what's at hand responding is something that will love you forward.

    3. Do not take action or make a decision from a place of weakness. Bad news can be something that knocks the wind out of you. Don't make your next move until you gather yourself and catch your breath.

    4. Look for the lesson or opportunity to grow. You will find that the tough lessons that you come by are the most meaningful ones... grow with it.

    And when you've work your way through processing all of those feelings, and feel strong enough... 

    get over iiiiitt...

    move ooooonn...

    let it gooooo...

    I don't know the reason for your struggle, but I know eventually you'll be okay.



    Until Next Time...


    Moms In Business

    I think it's safe to say that moms are doing things differently, these days.

    Every mom I know is making her way through a successful career, while raising beautiful and bright babies. Gone are the days of either staying at home to raise your children, or corporate crushing at the expense of your family goals. Moms are mastering both. 

    As a mompreneur (mom in business,) I get the opportunity to build with an amazing group of women.  I meet up with them in virtual masterminds, small groups, and every chance I get, I share with them in person.

    That's exactly what I plan to do on September 24, in Atlanta.  Melanie White of has asked me to join her and an amazing panel of women at the Mompreneurs: Mamas in Business event.


    I am excited to be opening up this event, as a guest speaker, followed by a panel discussion with other moms in business.
