A simple technique to ensure you don’t miss the moment.

This past Memorial weekend, I stayed in a huge converted barn with 12 of the most important people of my life. It was a non-bachelorette bachelorette weekend. Instead of penis straws, we had candles infused with specific prayers to manifest our desires. Instead of the Vegas strip, our view was a gorgeous grass-fed cattle farm.Continue Reading

Try saying this to yourself once in a while.

Two weeks ago I mentioned that Mike and I are doing a super-intense workout and nutrition program to get in tip-top shape for our wedding. It’s taking up a lot of time and requires quite a bit of energy and pre-planning. As one of my girlfriends from childhood said, though, “You’re never going to regret looking amazingContinue Reading

Is doing this sucking your energy? If so, here are 4 simple steps to cut it out.

I used to have this thing where I really wanted everyone to think that I had it all together — you know, that I was perfect. During this same period in my life (because real life is, indeed, often like a novel, full of perfect irony and poetic justice), my credit card debt was mounting.Continue Reading

How to teach your kids about money (or anything else, for that matter).

A lot of folks I know (myself included) have either been through so much therapy or taken so many personal growth seminars that they’re hyper-focused on not screwing up their kids. And while I think that every soul who comes into this world has their own karma and that we’re not solely responsible for ourContinue Reading

Don’t go changing without this.

So Mike and I are doing this nutrition and workout program to get in shape for our wedding. We tend to try different cleanses and nutritional approaches rather frequently, so I didn’t think much of signing up for a personalized online coaching program from a guy who Mike found on Instagram. But it turns outContinue Reading

When it comes to your money, which type are you?

Last week there was some serious eclipse action whispering to all of us, “Let go. Let go. Let go.” And as we let go of what no longer serves us and protect our time and energy for only that which truly lights our souls aflame, it feels like a rebirth. I started getting über clearContinue Reading

The most powerful way to protect your time . . . and your sanity.

I’ve been hearing about getting on the “No Train” for years. And until very recently, I thought I was on it. I thought I was clear on my priorities. I thought I was protecting my time. I thought I was saying no to the wrong things so that I could say yes to the rightContinue Reading

No matter who they are, they will be touched.

I find myself frequently wanting to send fan mail and gushing texts of love. I used to hold back because I thought that if someone had reached a certain level of success, wealth, fame, achievement, or — insert whatever word you’d like here for “bigness” — they were probably saturated with positive feedback. When Money: AContinue Reading

The answer you’ve been looking for.

Mike and I just flew to London, where we’re hanging out with my family and their menagerie of amazing animals, until this weekend when I speak at the UK and Hamburg Ignite Conferences. (Side note: my family has a dwarf hamster named Crusher who’s pretty much the cutest thing I’ve seen in my entire life.)Continue Reading

Figure this out before you go spreading the word about your business (or yourself.)

Though I’m a natural blonde, I have uncharacteristically intense eyebrows for my coloring. After a few weeks without maintenance they start to look like caterpillars. And I start to mistake myself for Groucho Marks when I catch my reflection quickly. Yesterday I’d had enough and I booked myself a last minute appointment with my badassContinue Reading
