You deserve to

love your life


I’m still buzzing from this…

I am filled with so much love and gratitude right now.

Grace Kraaijvanger gathered The Hivery community to celebrate She Builds book release party on Tuesday night. The event was sold out with 50+ people there––including my family, my Support Squad (close friends, my life coach, my therapist), and current and past clients.

It was a beautiful evening! And I’m still buzzing. 🐝✨💛

Also a heartfelt thanks to the generous event sponsors:

If you didn’t make it to this event, but you’d still like to celebrate with me in-person and have an opportunity for me to personally sign a hardcover copy of She Builds, it’s not too late.

Join me on Thursday, December 1st at 7:00pm in Walnut Creek, California. Cozy up with other incredible community-centered women in a women-owned Coffee Shop for intimate behind-the-scenes tips and insights on how we can embrace the anti-hustle mindset. We’ll also enjoy vegan light bites, wine, and good conversations.

During my release party, Grace asked the room, “How many people want to write a book?” 75% of the people in the room raised their hands. So many of us have stories and messages we want to share. And I’m excited to reveal what authors need to succeed when it comes to writing a book that impacts the world on the Lead with Love podcast.
