WHAT DO I POST TODAY?! Ever had this thought that you have no idea what you should actually be doing in your business to hit your goals? I know it can feel like there are a million and a half things that you should be DOING, but you're drawing a blank on what to say on social media to make your people actually listen to you. And when you do post, you hear crickets... What gives?!?! This is probably one of the questions I get asked most as a branding and social media expert: "I don't know what to even say. How can I make posts when I am feeling uninspired?" My answer: TURN ON YOUR COMPASSIONATE HEART CHAKRA. You are in business to SERVE, so listen up sister! There are days I wake up feeling like I just want to pull the covers over my head and chuck my computer out of the window. TODAY was one of those days. But guess what happened the second I got on the phone with a client.... I knew exactly what to say! Why? Because I was in service mode instead of forcing myself to say something mode. Posting on social media is no different. If you're just posting to post, nobody can FEEL you. Of course it will feel like child labor to get the words out. When you step into service, turn on your heart chakra, and FEEL into the struggles and desires of your ideal client, you can get out of your own way and actually write. I teach this formula for turning on your heart chakra in order to write, potent, authentic post inside of my 90 day mentorship program, the Aligned Brand Academy. If showing up consistently on social media is one of your weak spots, you need ACCOUNTABILITY and you need to tune into the big ole heart of yours. There are only 7 spots left in the ABA that begins on May 27th. Want in? I'd love to support you if you're feeling like this is your next step in business and branding. Drop a ME in the comments if you want more info on the ABA or you're ready to apply! P.S. Let me know your biggest struggle with knowing what to say on social media in the comments! I'd love to give your some feedback <3

People are always chasing numbers, burning out, hustling hard, and trying #allthethings and STILL not seeing results. And I remember being in those shoes once too. When I first launched my business, I was building websites and doing graphic design for women entrepreneurs and feeling like there was something MORE that needed to be shared. I’d design the most stunning brand collateral, hand it over to the client, and watch them struggle to BE their brand online, not just look the part of a fancy influencer with all the bells and whistles. Success doesn’t come when things look a certain way. Success comes when you BE a certain way. That’s why I scrapped the old way of branding and created my signature offer to lead people through what it means to create an ALIGNED brand. I teach women to clarify who they really are, why they are here, and how to turn that into a thriving magnetic brand online. That is what the Aligned Brand Academy is all about: YOU getting to BE you in the marketplace and having people pay you for your gifts. No more fear of being seen. No more confusion over what to do for your business today. No more icky sales vibe. No more feeling like a fraud. This is the work soulful women need to build 6 and 7 figure brands. I stand by that 10000% There are only 9 spots left in the Aligned Brand Academy that begins on May 27th! Ready? Leave a 💛 emoji in the comments for more details about the ABA 😘

What if putting yourself out there felt like frolicking through an apple orchard in a sundress? Well, my life literally looked like that a few weeks ago on retreat in Sedona with my own business coach. But, it wasn’t always so peachy perfect. Not until I learned this one skill. Here’s how business gets to feel so good: I follow my internal compass and let my body wisdom lead the way. I didn’t choose my next step based on the money I had in my wallet. I always make investment decisions based on one thing: a full body yes. We are fearful creatures, us humans! If you give your mind the chance to wreak havoc on your big goals, it will convince you that you’re not ready, you’re not capable, you won’t have the time, you won’t be able to pay for it, blah blah blah. Here’s the thing: the woman you’re wanting to be in the world isn’t the woman who doubts herself or her resourcefulness. She’s the one who follows her inner yes and moves heaven and earth to hit her goals, especially when her family is relying on her. Don’t hold back. Don’t say “I’ll do it later.” Don’t wait another second to give to yourself. You are ready. It’s time to show up as the leader you know you’re meant to be. 📷: @kileyshaiphotography at Sedona, Arizona

What if you stopped chasing freedom and you let it chase you... all the way around the world perhaps 😘

Let's talk NICHE One of the big mistakes I see entrepreneurs make (especially heart centered ones like us) is choosing a niche. You've probably heard, if you're talking to everyone, you're talking to no one. And, IT'S TRUE. You may have also heard you must choose a very specific niche market in order to have success. BUT... The bigger mistake I see is choosing your ideal client solely off of who will buy your product or service instead of who lights you up. Why fit yourself in a tidy and neat little box based in fear? Rebel! Rebel! Soulmate clients are not simply the people who hand your their cash. NO NO NO. Soulmate clients are the ones who believe what you believe, understand the value of your work, are ready to invest, AND they bring you major joy to work with. You cannot choose a niche by asking yourself who wants what you're selling. You must choose your niche by clarifying your why, understanding your own value, and turning on your heart chakra to FEEL into who you're MEANT TO SERVE. I teach aIl of this inside of the Aligned Brand Academy, which is now open for enrollment. If you've been struggling with choosing a niche, understanding how to speak and attract in your ideal clients, and you're ready to uplevel your energetic capacity for success, I'd love to support you inside of the May collective of the ABA. If you're wanting more details about how the ABA works, or you're ready to apply, drop a ❤️ in the comments, sister! at San Luis Obispo, California

I believe we spend too much time looking outside of ourselves for inspiration on how to look, how to be, what to create, what photos to post, what font to choose for our logo.. blah blah blah. There is nothing sexier than your authentic truth. It's true. When you're aligned with your authentic truth, EVERYTHING starts to flow. You stop looking outside of yourself and you turn inward. When we compare ourselves to others, we actually turn our power against ourselves. Comparison leads to self criticism, anger, frustration, judgment, and a whole slew of other emotions I'd rather you not experience. I want you to feel confidence, radiance, enthusiasm, joy, authenticity, and power when you think about how AWESOME you are. That's when you stop asking the world if it's okay to be who you really are. That's when the universe gives you a gold star and a whole lot of abundance to match. Are you constantly caught in a comparison loop? What's the hardest thing about being your authentic self online? Tell me in the comments sister! at San Luis Obispo, California

What is the universe you’re creating for yourself? You are the co-creator after all 😘 Go big, don’t hold back, ask for help, love on those you adore, and give yourself some grace. Tell the universe what you want, believe it with all of your heart, and don’t stop until it’s here NOW. at Sedona, Arizona

Chasing freedom? When I started my business, I had a dream of being location independent and financially free but... One big problem: I didn’t have any proof this was possible for someone like me. Sure, there were people bee bopping around the world with their laptops staying at luxury resorts, but I didn’t KNOW any of them personally. Everyone I knew had told me to study the right thing to get a “good” job after college. Everyone else I knew was working as a waiter figuring out what was next. Was this actually possible? Was this big dream I had worth pursuing if it left me broke and alone? Today I’m sitting at the airport with 18 stamps in my passport, a thriving business, and the freedom to work anywhere I damn please. In order to have my dream I had to take scary leaps, chase things that no one I knew was chasing, and invest in myself. The only way to have your dream is to be daring and BELIEVE in yourself. No one believes in your dream as much as you do. NO ONE will do this for you. If you’re wanting something you don’t currently have, ask yourself what you’re willing to do to make it happen. Ask yourself if you’re willing to let it be easy. If you’ve been feeling that call to join the next round of the Aligned Brand Academy but you’re terrified of investing in yourself, investing your time, investing in this big dream of yours, I dare you to take action. 😘 You can apply at the link in my bio ✨

When I first started my business, I did what a lot of brand new entrepreneurs do: I played small. What does small look like? For me, it was ignoring that tiny voice in my head that said “you’re supposed to be doing something else, something more.” I ignored that voice to chase after cash money. I figured my business idea couldn’t just make me feel excited... it had to be “profitable” and it had to make sense to everyone else. What I know years down the road: nothing is more worth chasing than that dream that makes no sense to anyone but you. Money loves dreamers and trailblazers. Money loves to show up for those who show up for the highest alignment. If you’ve been sitting on a dream, or you’ve been slaving away at a job that doesn’t feel aligned, I dare you to go deeper. Ask yourself: if you couldn’t fail, what would you do?! Then, go do that thing in some capacity. I’ve made the most money in the least amount of time when I aligned my brand with what that little voice in my head was begging me to do all along. Out of that alignment, I created the Aligned Brand Academy. If you’ve been hiding from your real purpose, I’d love to support you in realigning to create the massive success and fulfillment I’ve found by rebranding through the chakra system (yes, I just said chakras). The ABA is now open for enrollment for May 27th start. If you’re wanting more details about how the ABA can help your launch or grow your brand and business, drop a ❤️ emoji in the comments and I’ll reach out 😘

EXCITING ANNOUNCEMENT!!! Building a brand and business can be OVERWHELMING with all the trainings and freebies promising you results that ultimately don't work. I for one am soooooo tired of hunting for all of the answers, aren't you? Here's what I've found to be true about building a brand & biz. We tend to look outside of ourselves for how we are supposed to look/sound/be in the online space to have success. You don't need another 3 keys or 5 step guide to find success. Why? The keys are within you. When we use all of our time and energy searching outside of ourselves for the roadmap to success, we ignore the blueprint we've been given from the start: YOUR ENERGY. With every client I've ever coached, they all needed different strategies and had to work through different blocks. ALL of them had to stop searching outside and take their focus inward before finding their own alignment. What happened when they stopped searching and started getting ALIGNED? - They finally created aligned offerings that felt EASY to sell - They uncovered THEIR why and learned how to leverage that why to build their audience and increase their following - They've abandoned old business practices that weren't working and started marketing their way - They've integrated ALL the passions into one epic offering - They've stepped into their role as coach and expert instead of standing back on the sidelines watching others teach what they've been wanting to teach for years Alignment is the number one thing you must have in order to make any strategy work. Your energy is your roadmap to success. They blocks you hold within your system are keeping you from the results you crave. YOU don't have to look outside of yourself any longer. You get to be aligned and build and aligned brand that positions you as the expert, not the one searching for success. I'm excited to announce that the next collective of the Aligned Brand Academy (my 90 day soulful brand mentorship program) is now OPEN for early bird enrollment! We start May 27th.

There isn’t a single strategy more powerful for growing your brand magnetism on social than this: UPLEVEL YOUR AUTHENTICITY. Authenticity is sexy, it’s magnetic, it’s abundant, and it’s enough. I know you’re wanting me to talk about hashtags and how many times to post a week, but GIRL it’s not about that. Your magnetism comes from your energy. When you understand your brand essence and you embody it, you start attracting in your soulmate clients. It’s when we are misaligned, trying to be someone we’re not, doubting ourselves, or pushing to hard that this whole social media thing feels icky and complicated. Wouldn’t it feel so much better to let the perfectionism go? Wouldn’t you love to be paid to be yourself?????! YES! If you’re not already inside of my free Facebook community “The Inner Essence Collective” go get your cutie patootie booty inside that group for more tips and free trainings on social media and brand magnetism 😘 at San Luis Obispo, California

“What if you I’m meant to be was always me?” This line from @jonbellion hits me every time. It’s always felt like I was chasing this better version of myself, comparing who I wasn’t to who others already were. I would look out on my teachers and mentors and think, THEY are so radiant and inspiring.... I want to be like THEM. That chase and striving for the beauty I saw outside of myself was exhausting, but also so unfulfilling. Why? Because no matter how radiant and sparkly you may look on the outside, if you’re not being yourself and matching your external expression with your authentic truth, you’ll always be searching for the missing piece. So here it is: ALIGNMENT is the missing piece. Who you’re meant to be is YOU. When you stop looking outside of yourself and focus on your own inner alignment, that’s when life begins. Call on #ganesh to clear all of this comparison bullshit out your way. I promise, who you are is pure magic, even if you don’t see it yet. I do! Does that resonate?

I had to share this from the Inner Essence Collective because I am loving reading your comments! So make sure you leave one! Want to know the third chakra activation trick to creating offers that people can't wait to say yes to? The answer is JOY! Like this card from Gabby Bernstein says... JOY is the ultimate creator, and I couldn't agree more. When you turn on your excitement and enthusiasm, you're activating your third chakra. That's your center of willpower, taking action, and being passionate about your work. When your third chakra is out of whack, you become addicted to the hustle and things don't flow with ease and grace. You BURN out. Burn out does not equal joy and it sure as hell doesn't equal dollar bills. When you're in your true power things flow with ease and grace. You're filled with JOY and so are your potential clients at the thought of working with you. When you are excited, your people get excited! Joy is contagious. In summation... You need more JOY! How are you creating more joy in your life and business this week? Tell me in the comments! at San Luis Obispo, California

How do you answer the question “what do you do?” When you start with WHAT you do, people perceive you through their lens. You become JUST another health coach... just another person selling essential oils... just another coach (whatever that means). I like to flip this question on its head and start with WHY (thank you @simonsinek). Tell them what you believe. Tell them why you do what you do. When you lead with your why, people perceive you through the lens you’ve created. Then, they get to decide if you RESONATE with them. When someone believes in your why, they lean in. Then they can take in what you do through your why. If you can’t clearly tell someone what it is you do, they will never buy from you. Inside of the Aligned Brand Academy, I teach this formula of creating resonance (hello throat chakra). The next collective of the ABA is opening soon! If you want in on the early bird pricing leave a ME in the comments. 😘💛✨ at San Luis Obispo, California
