you can build







a business from nothing.

I know you can, because that’s exactly what I did. In February of 2015, with a newborn on my chest, a two year old at my ankles, and $600 in my bank account, I started a business. My family needed groceries, and as a dietitian, I had a skill I thought people might pay me for if I played my cards right. Also I applied for #allthejobs and got none of them, so there was that too.

I invested a whopping $50 in a website and I started a business. A few hours a week at first, during naptime. Then when I could afford it, a few hours a day during Mother’s Morning Out. I paid myself $800 a month–for groceries and partial rent– and invested every other hard-earned penny the business brought in (only about 200 more dollars) into childcare. And just like that, I became an entrepreneur.

you're not crazy







you're visionary.

If you’re reading this, you probably didn’t wake up one day and say “today I want to be an entrepreneur!” If you did, you might be certifiably crazy. (file under: conversations for another day.) No, more than likely, you ended up in an uncomfortable situation. You like eating (yay!) and the grocery fairy doesn’t exist (boo!). Or maybe you saw a need that desperately needed to be filled, and no one else was filling it.

So you decided to do something about it. To take a leap of faith. To dive into the unknown. To take a crazy idea in your head and breath it into existence.

Maybe that’s where you’re at today. Throwing spaghetti on the wall, hoping it sticks. A few hours a week, maybe more. Coming home from your 9 to 5 to work 5 more while the rest of the world sleeps. If this is you, I want you to know, this is only just the beginning.

YOU WERE MEANT FOR SO MUCH MORE.

 

I know you are, because I know I was, too. But I didn’t believe that then. Back when I was working for $800 a month around everyone else’s schedule and doing work I thought I had to do to make ends meet. What I didn’t know back then was that you and I–we were meant for so much more.

Sometimes we forget to dream bigger. We play small and safe. Ask permission. Risk nothing. We tell ourselves we’re happy supporting other people’s dreams, believing ours aren’t as important. We’re not as capable. Our visions are not as worth pursuing. But, excuse my French, that's bullsh*t.

you matter







& your work should, too.

I was 22 when I graduated college. A week later I got married. 18 months after that I had my first kid. I played life by the books, did all the things I thought I was supposed to do, until one day things just...changed. And I realized, hey, I might have to figure out life on my own. 

I realized that all my best laid plans might not work out, and at the end of the day, if there was something I wanted, it was up to me to get it. Not my husband, not my kids, not anyone else around me, just me. And so I did what you have to do in that situation: I stepped up to the plate.

THE ONLY PERSON STANDING IN YOUR WAY IS YOU.

 
 

 

When I realized I was worth investing in, that I was just as deserving–my dreams just as worth pursuing as every single person close to me–I stopped playing small, and started wanting more for myself. Stopped working for “extra” income, and started working for dreams I wanted to fulfill. Stopped surviving, and started dreaming.

I took risks! Made investments. Said, “thank you for your opinion, but this is not your decision to make.” I signed a 5-year lease on an 1,100 square foot studio space. Hired a team. Hosted events. I started a cold-pressed juice company and I closed a cold-pressed juice company. I tried a lot of new things. Some that worked and some that didn’t–  and for the first time in my adult life, I experienced what emotional and financial freedom felt like. And it’s epic.

Today I run a consulting company for some of top influencers and entrepreneurs in wellness. I've helped to launch a start-up company at Google, spoken to entrepreneurs at Harvard, and together with my amazing team work with female founders all over the world to help them create passive income and scalable business models doing work they're passionate about. And it all started because I started believing it was possible.

you have







everything you need.

The truth is you already have everything you need to live the life you've always dreamed of. You just have to dig deep and find it. I didn’t start taking risks because everyone else stopped standing in my way, I started taking risks because I gave myself permission.

I started experiencing success beyond my wildest dreams–trips to Paris! designer clothes! matinees in the middle of the day because I can dammit!–because I believed I deserved it...and I worked my butt off to make it happen. 

That’s why I’m so passionate about female entrepreneurship. Because you deserve to have the life you’ve always dreamed of. You deserve to feel fulfilled and empowered and have a life that's deeply meaningful. Your dreams are *just as worth pursuing* as anyone else’s.

Because when women win, we all win.

You don’t need someone else’s permission. You don’t need someone else’s validation. And you definitely don’t need someone else to pay yo' automo' bills. (cue: Destiny's Child). You just need a bigger dream and a plan to make it happen. And that's where I come in. 

 
 

BRING YOUR IDEAS TO LIFE.

YOUR VOICE, YOUR DREAMS, YOUR VISION...IT MATTERS.

AND YOUR WORK SHOULD TOO.
 

That's where our stories meet— because you don't have to do it alone.
