The Catalyst To My Deep Depression, Emotional Eating, & Call To My Selfish Era – Shamelessly Ambitious Episode 136

Filed in All Episodes, Business Strategy, Emotional Intelligence, Leadership Development — June 3, 2024

Welcome to the first episode of Nomad Musings. Possibly low quality audio, but high quality connection. 😏

Ya’ll know that 2023 was a hard year for me. I was dealing with some friendship breakups that fucking sucked. Why are friendship breakups the hardest?? I lost my passion for health which is SO unlike me. I lost my consistent workout routine & I was eating chips and ice cream like my life depended on it. 🥲 && I really hit my breaking point where I felt so numb & paralyzed by life that I needed to turn it all off in order to make ANY decisions moving forward… For which I am so grateful because I was able to dive head first into my health. Today I am officially down 30 pounds and I am damn proud of myself for the work I’ve put in. I finally feel my spark coming back. For life, business, relationships, travel, && health. Ugh, I am so proud of where I am at today and the quality of life I’m producing.

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).
