Episode 85: Wrapping Up The Year With A Bow And Some CEO Boundaries

About the Episode

Ah! I can hardly believe it… this is the final episode of 2022. I’m so freaking glad you’ve been such a big part of my year! This space is my favorite and one where I can be so vulnerable and it’s because of you! So thank you for being here.

In this episode of the Shamelessly Ambitious Podcast, I’m here to chat with you about some really important CEO moves to be making as we close in on the end of the year and embark on a new one.

This is a really good time for you to take a 30,000-foot view of what’s feeling good, and what’s not feeling good. These observations will probably shed light on some new standards or new boundaries that you can put in place. I just recently did this too, so I’m sharing with you what came up for me and a little bit of my BTS process to help you do the same.

As I said in the episode, “I know that you built your business for time freedom, abundance, and all the glorious things. In order to be the manifestor, the attractor to those things, live them now. Create them now. Build the boundaries and the business standards now.”

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).
