Episode 21: My Full-Circle Moment

About the Episode

In this episode of the Shamelessly Ambitious Podcast, I’m telling a story that I always prayed I’d get to share but never knew when I’d be able to. It’s the most vulnerable I’ve ever gotten in a public setting and I am honored to bring this story to you and have it on record for myself for years and years to come. THIS is something I NEVER want to forget.

I’m sharing a very personal full-circle moment. This is the type of moment when you recognize that you have faced so much, gone through so much, and experienced so much and that it has all been for a very specific reason. 

Are you ready to get emotional with me?

Thanks for listening. Thanks for being here.


  • The “why me?” moment that happened, more than once
  • The deep financial struggle we found ourselves (hint: bankruptcy was just the tip of the iceberg)
  • The moment that felt like rock bottom as I closed down my private practice and had to move in with my parents
  • The time when we sold everything we owned and renovated an old RV to travel the country and find our next home
  • The terrible lawsuit we faced AND then lost
  • Why I believe all of our hardships brought us to THIS very special full-circle moment
  • The next epic chapter of our lives in our new dream home

I am the definition of duality—I swear like a sailor and break rules like it’s my job, but I also hold incredible space for my clients and work my ass off to help them achieve the success they’re after (but faster).

My background in counseling and my experience founding three multi-6-figure businesses gives me a unique perspective on what it means to show up and serve as an ethical and successful CEO. Leaning on my experiences, along with the experiences of the hundreds of women I’ve been honored to work with, I offer founders a psych-backed and human-first approach to scaling their legacies—both in and out of the office. 

I don’t believe in a one-size-fits-all approach to anything, but especially business. Because at the foundation of any profitable, sustainable, ethically sound business is one thing: humans being humans. And to do anything without first considering the human behind the action (i.e., with intention and vulnerability) is to remove our most powerful predictor of success—ourselves.

Around here, you’ll find a personalized and multidimensional client experience paired with a few tastefully dropped fucks. You’ll also find a new way of being in business that’s sustainable, ethical, and built around your life (not the other way around).
