About the Episode

You may have noticed (or let’s be real – you’re probably as busy as me and had no idea!) that last week a new episode of Shamelessly Ambitious didn’t come out as it normally does. I changed my mind about recording last week’s episode because I was sick, slammed with behind-the-scenes tasks getting ready for our move to Costa Rica, and simply could not fit it in without stressing myself to the max.

In the past, I would have pushed through at all costs… But I dropped the “I do hard things” motto after finally realizing that’s how I kept ending up in burnout over, and over again.

Which brings me to this episode, where I’m talking about the actual key to preventing and fighting off burnout. And it’s not what you’d expect! My anti-burnout remedy is not about doing MORE self-care. My friend, today I want to introduce you to the concept of emotional power and truly invite you to recognize that your emotional power has the greatest impact on your business and ability to thrive. 

Being a CEO requires you to have perseverance. In order to be someone who can persevere, you have to be standing in your highest power. Perseverance is not “doing it no matter what” – it’s doing it in alignment and doing what feels good. It’s honoring your highest energy and owning your emotional power. Tune in to learn all the juicy details! Thanks for listening.

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).
