I do know that this world is filled with some pretty amazing people.

People who’ve taught, mentored, challenged, and disagreed with me.

People who’ve inspired, believed in, and loved me, even when I stopped believing in myself. They helped me take another step when I wanted to give up.

People who are experts in nutrition, wellness, business, design, parenting, life coaching, accounting (definitely not me), and so on. You get the point.

For years I asked, “Is there a need for another person dishing out advice, spreading inspiration, and sharing knowledge & opinion on health, wellness, business, and lifestyle?”

I kept telling myself, “No, there are enough people who do those things; use your gifts to do something else. No need to put yourself out there.”

The thing is, we can only run and hide from what we’ve been called to do for so long.

Eventually, the pull of our life calling gets so strong that we can’t ignore it anymore.

We begin to understand that we (yes, both you and I) were not just made to survive but thrive.

Once we get to that place, it’s no longer about you or me.


Humans are designed to thrive.

We need each other to do it. We need more than one person or one approach.

So here I am, sharing pieces of myself to help you know that you can keep going.

Yes, we can do hard things.

No, you don’t have to do it all today, nor do you have to go alone.


Your mistakes are ok.

A good friend once told me that people are more forgiving than we give them credit for.

And for the love of ice cream, keep showing up. Show up for yourself. Show up for your work.

Show up for your people. Show up for us and the world we are living in. As you can see, this is about us elevating up.

It’s more than just rising up personally and professionally; it’s about rising up in our community and beyond.
