Dear Diary

I woke up today with the idea that this blog should be a diary. Yes, just like when you were 12 and used pink glitter pens with fluffy cotton on the eraser top.

And since I’m my own boss, I can do whatever I want. (Highly recommend.)

Dear Diary is the new blog. You will find here confessions, the mindset issues I’m working through, the business moves I’m making behind the scenes. Basically, the dirt. Be honest, everyone loves dirt.

So today, I am working on the content for the Not Another Masterclass (Series), along with videos, and I’m crafting the material for Summer School.

What I want to be doing is transplanting my peonies from NH to VT, at the new house. They just started spouting and I’m told it’s the perfect time to move them. (I’ve accumulated about 15 in the 25 years I’ve lived in NH and I don’t want to leave them behind.)

Anyway, the two things connected in my brain in an odd way…

We’re told there’s a right time for everything. We like to push too soon, or wait too late.

But what if that’s not even possible?

What if what you thought was too soon was meant to teach you something? The same for whatever you thought was too late?

What if there is no possible way to fuck up? Because no matter the circumstance or outcome, you are exactly where you are meant to be? You are there to learn something that allows you advance, getting you closer to where you intend to go.

I won’t lie: The idea relieved a shit ton of pressure. It’s impossible to be behind. It’s ridiculous to think I can be ahead of the curve.

I’m on my own timeline, so who says what’s early or late?

I used to tell this story where, in my head, the universe is a giant hand moving pieces on a chessboard. Our goal is to win the game. The universe wants that too. But we have no idea how many moves will be necessary on that board in order to win.

Ergo, too late, too early, failure, mistake, fuck up, freak out, are just moves getting us closer to the win.

Feel me?

So no, I’m not moving peonies today. But I am certain I will get them moved when I am supposed to in order to learn something or win. It’s one or the other. That’s how my world is set up.

What about yours?

Are mistakes the death of you? Do you cringe at the prospect of failure? That’s a great way to put yourself in a box.

Meantime, the Not Another Masterclass (Series) starts in 2 days, on May 15. That’s where my focus lies. I call it a month of out-of-the-box thinking and a rave for your brain. You should get in.

People like us

People like me, who come from less than nothing but a bucket of emotional trauma, aren’t supposed to build 7-figure empires from scratch.

We’re definitely not supposed to do it in our bathrobes, while smoking cigarettes, on camera.

We’re not supposed to make it up as we go.

We’re not supposed to trust our instincts.

We’re not supposed to achieve more than most.

They tell us to follow the plan, listen to the experts, color inside the lines. And god help you if you don’t.

But guess what?

Without the flipping plan, you’re free to do whatever the hell you like.

Want to know how I got here? 

By breaking every goddamn rule. 

To celebrate the fact that I get to do whether TF I want, I’ve decided to invite you to learn how to do the same.

Enter the “Not Another Masterclass (Series),” coming to you May 15 through June 5. I called it that because it’s fairly common in this industry for people to hear “masterclass” and expect a commercial. But my classes aren’t that.

In fact, nothing I do is like other people. And I love it that way.

So, the classes…

There are four, one per week, that look like this:

  1. Leadership YOUR way – May 15 (you are NOT who you think you are)
    We dive into what it looks like to lead on your terms, without frazzle, burnout or going broke. I learned a long time ago that success came from a combination of mindset and strategy – my own strategy that came from my own mindset. It’s an enigma in a paradox and I’m going to untangle it for you now.
  2. Business on your terms – May 22
    Expanding your capacity to receive, but also to give. It’s NOT all on you. But as long as you think it is, you contract. “It’s too much.” “I can’t.” “I don’t know how.” Bullshit. Here’s where I show you how to help yourself open up to what is truly available to you right now. (are you available for what is trying to help you?)
  3. Money in your hands – May 29
    Visibility without apology, without worrying you’re posting “too much” (as if that’s even possible), and without overthinking how someone could possibly be offended. The crap you tell yourself about showing up shapes your content. This is an incredibly important concept.
  4. Serving people YOU choose – June 5
    How tying all of the above together allows you to call in the right clients, while holding some MF boundaries and knowing worth.

Now, listen, I know no one taught you to trust yourself first.

I know we live in a bizarre culture that loves for people like us to fit in.

But sweetheart, none of that makes a profitable business or an impact.

And you do want to make an impact and help people, right?

If you’re ready to make noise, innovate, often go by the seat of your pants and succeed, then this is for you.

If that gets your pulse racing, sign up. You’re my kinda woman.

I can’t wait to see how you lead on your terms. Click the button!
