About the Episode

What do we do when life or business feels hard? In this episode of the Shamelessly Ambitious Podcast, I’m sharing the 3 steps that I follow when things feel really hard and when I just feel uncertain.

This has been coming up so, so much among my clients, among myself, and with my friends & family, and I felt the need to have a deeper conversation about it with you all. 

So, let’s dive right in.


  • The feelings that came up right before my first in-person speaking event after the pandemic
  • Three questions you can ask to get real honest with yourself
  • Taking action for the sake of curiosity instead of results
  • Persistence versus consistence
  • The three steps you can take to get yourself out of a rut when life or business feels hard

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).
