I Didn’t Just Wake Up One Morning
Feeling Scared & Powerless

If you ever feel like you just don’t fit in, or feel the world is just a little different, I want you to know that I’M WITH YOU!

I know what it feels like to have no friends. I know what it feels like to be teased and bullied for being different. I’ve been through ALL OF IT. In fact, I spent most of my life wishing that I WAS just like everyone else. I spent a lot of my life TRYING to be like everyone else. And guess what? It didn’t work.

I buried myself one moment at a time, numbing the pain from a career that was killing me by binge watching for three days straight without a shower (seriously though!), devouring an ENTIRE tub of Ben & Jerry’s at a time, the daily “take-the-edge-off” glasses of wine.

Maybe all that had something to do with why I used to look like this…

Yup, that’s me!

The life of the party and completely miserable.

But I’ve Come A Long Way
(and you will too)

I came a long way from…

  • Believing I was alone and ashamed of my life …to helping thousands turn their lives around.
  • Escaping my problems binging on booze, junk food, and endless tv …to discovering my own power rituals based on neural science and ancient wisdom
  • Crying uncontrollably in the middle of the night …to waking at 4am each day (yes, even the weekends)
  • Avoiding looking at myself in the mirror because I didn’t like what I saw …to losing 40 pounds and amazing energy without coffee
  • Sick and tired of feeling so lifeless and in a rut …to running my own agency & coaching business, doing what I love with dream clients

Let me ask you something… Have you ever felt stuck and held back? This can’t be the first time you attempted to turn your life around, right?

In fact, if you were like me…I was searching for the answer! You read countless “self-development” books, tried dozens of “programs” on Facebook and Instagram, listened to endless hours of YouTube videos, did energy work, workshops, got the crystals, oils and sage…

I’ve seen what works and what doesn’t.

Secret #1
Negative Emotions Are Good For You

The self-help “gurus” has been lying to us for decades!

You’ve been told to only think positive thoughts. And if by chance you let a a negative thought or emotion slither into your mind, you’re toast. Worse, you brought bad events into your life simply because you had a negative thought.


I am not against positive thinking or anything that makes your life better (I’m the creator of the Gratitude app, for Pete’s sake!) I am against teachings that make your life worse – especially when the “gurus” parade around as if they are our savior.

Of course life is better with a positive outlook but burying negative thoughts will ruin you. Reality is a good place – and running from it by repressing negative emotions is holding you hostage.

Negative emotions are telling you something and the longer you ignore them, the louder they’ll get.You need to pay attention to ALL of your emotions. There’s a big difference between feeling all your emotions and repressing them.

Listen to what your emotions are telling you, but don’t set up camp and live there. Fear, boredom, guilt, blame aren’t in the driving seat, you are.But they need to be in the car along for the ride because they can help you read the map of life.


The next time you feel anxious, jealous, insecure… ask yourself “Is it true?”.

I know, it seems too simple but this question works like magic. It tricks your brain into automatically searching for the answer. Our brains aren’t wired to make us happy, they’re wired to keep us alive. Your negative emotions are shining a spot light on an event in your life that got wedged into your subconscious and is secretly running the show.

Expose that belief by asking yourself if what you’re feeling now is true. What you discover is truly eye-opening!

Secret #2
The first 7 minutes of your day can change your life.

As soon as I woke, I would reach for my phone and check email, reply to messages, read the news and social media, all before I even woke up. I thought I was being productive and ahead of the game.

I didn’t realize simple ten minutes each day was setting me up to FAIL. How harmful can looking at photos be?? But then I realized… you know what, I’m already stressed about my day and feeling like a loser because I missed the big social even all my friends posted about…and I’m not even out of bed!

I been putting myself on the back-burner and everything was suffering–my health, family, career. I craved a week long retreat…but with kids and bills to pay…it simply wasn’t in the cards.

Then I wondered “How can I possibly fit in a morning routine, not feel tired all day…and what about the kids?”

At first, just the thought of getting up early gave me insomnia. Then I discovered that an hour long morning routine is a myth!


You’ve been told…

you have to do a specific routines each morning (including freezing cold showers!) and if you miss a morning you’re a “self-sabotager” loser who is destined for mediocrity.


Your morning routine doesn’t need to be an hour long and it doesn’t need to be another stressful thing you “should” do. Your morning practice has to feel GOOD AND EASY.

You crave waking up because you enjoy your routine–not one of those things where your force yourself every day wishing you enjoyed it.

Not only that, but 7 – 10 minutes each day will make a huge dent if you use them wisely.When you first wake, your brain is in an “alpha” state which is just like how you feel when you meditate. This is when your mind is most impressionable because you’re relaxed and open to new ideas.

What you do in those precious 10 minutes is what matters most.If you’re checking Facebook, email, the news and stuff, then you’re giving away all your power. You’re letting what you see in Facebook influence your mind, determine your actions and course of your day.

Same goes with lying in bed replaying negative events in your life. You’re giving away your power. But if you bask in daydreams, write your goals, feel genuinely grateful, or meditate (even a few minutes), then you’re impacting your brain without the ego or “what-if’s” running the show. You’re actually changing every other small action you take that day, and your entire life.

Isn’t that amazing?!

Secret #3
“Fake It ’til You Make It”
Is the Worse Advice Ever

You’ve been told to fake it ’til you make it, especially if you want to be successful.

Anyone telling you to whip out your credit card and buy expensive stuff to you can fake your way to happiness is setting you up to FAIL!

Here’s why it’s the worst advice you could ever follow. If you’re faking it, you’re literally telling yourself inside your mind, “I am going to fake this.”

“I am a fake.”

“I am inauthentic.”

“I am not real.”

“I am not able to do this.”

This is a lie! This is setting you up to believe that you don’t have what it takes.

You CAN be successful doing what you love. You CAN feel confident in your decisions. You CAN have fun and enjoy life.

So what do you do instead?

Simple. “Act as if.”

“Act as if” instructs your mind to look for the source of what you want inside of you. It assumes what you want is already there, you just have to find and develop it.

This sends your mind to very powerful questions…

What would I do? What would I say? How would I act? How would I behave? How would I dress? How would I approach people? It puts the power in you because it brings the action out of you, rather than looking for motivation outside of you.

All of a sudden your entire perspective changes.

Comparison is evil. You’ve been told that you should be successful by a certain time. That you should be wealthy in 12 weeks or skinnier in 3 weeks…

Your goal is a LIFELONG healthy lifestyle and YOUR life is different than Julie, Betty or whoever. Everybody’s body, mind and spirit are different. You can’t look at Julie who was successful in weeks and say “well I’m still not there after my first month so I’m failing and I’m gonna quit”

That’s why we quit right?! Because we’re comparing our results to someone else’s! Maybe Julie doesn’t have kids! Maybe she has family connections.

Are you getting this?! Pretending to be like someone else puts you on the wrong track. You are unique and the world needs that! Your ideas, talents, aspirations and perspectives are a big treasure and comparing it to others keeps it buried.

So instead of “act as if”, ask yourself the question “What would / how would _____?” If you’re going to act as if I were the greatest business woman in the world, what would the greatest business woman in the world do in this situation? How would she behave? This puts you in the driving seat on your timeline with your best assets.

Big things happen. You don’t feel guilty for investing in yourself each day.
You realize that being selfish is actually not selfish at all. Your energy, confidence and clarity fill you up so you have plenty to give to others.

The “fake it ’til you make it” advice gets handed out like Halloween candy and it holds you back. It’s BS, don’t listen to it! Replace that with “act as if.” When you act as if you’re confidence shines and that brings out the behaviors, the attitude, the actions – everything you need to lifelong purpose.

My 5 Step Process

Over the years, I’ve witnessed clients radically shift their lives, many after a single session with me. They successfully gotten off of prescription drugs, increased their income and discovered meaning and purpose again.

Wanting to help more people join the movement, I created One Habit Challenge. At the core of the live 21 day challenge is identifying your tired old stories and beliefs and giving them the heave-ho so you can create new ones that are in alignment with who you truly are and what you truly want (and that will help you gain clarity if you’re a tad fuzzy about who you truly are and what you truly want).

We work on raising your vibration, shifting your consciousness and getting you in the flow so your new stories can go beyond just, “sweet, these new stories sound totally coolio” to you actually believing and acting on them.

Over the past 10 years, my 5-step process focuses on short wins to get your momentum going, creating the life you want, and long-term based on tried and true honesty, integrity and passion for the people you serve.
