You deserve to

love your life


One of my biggest fears when I sold my company…

One of my biggest fears when I sold my half of Simple Green Smoothies in 2016 was that no one would invite me to speak on their stage or ask me to be a guest on their podcast.

Which dives into a deeper human fear that I believe can live deeply in all of us… that no one would want me or love me.

I felt if I was no longer a part of the business that opened so many doors and opportunities for me, I’d no longer be worthy to share my message and voice.

It’s wild how we can hook our identity and our worthiness into our businesses. From a company I grew to reach over one million people without any paid advertising, I allowed my self worth to be linked to the external numbers that so many people were in awe of.


You are NOT your business. Your worthiness does not equate to the amount of money you make.

No matter what business you build, you can walk away. And what you walk away with, whether you lost money, or lost followers, or lost your confidence, you can REBUILD.

You are a builder at heart. Remember that.

I am a community builder, dreamer, entrepreneur, spoken word poet, mother, wife.

I am resilient, creative, nurturing, loving, encouraging, present, alive.

Who are you? No matter what losses and unexpected changes happen on your journey, know that you bring the essence of who you are everywhere you go, because that cannot be stripped away.

So remember your biggest fear could be a story you’re making up that’s stopping you from making that next bold step in your life. Many unopened doors are waiting for you. Which is one of the things we talk about in today’s podcast episode. We talk about making the leap from one successful business to another and all of the fears and hesitations that come up in the messy middle.

Do you want to own a business that can run without you?
