Dose of Clarity: Stop questioning & start trusting...

 
 

Don’t you just love a totally inspired idea? (I do!!) It wakes you up at night, feels totally thrilling, and you can’t help but think about it constantly and talk about it incessantly. You’re in love. Fired up. Ready. In flow.

Then you start questioning its viability. Doubting your ability to make it happen. Wondering if it’s really as good as you originally thought. Probably not...

And suddenly that totally lit-up feeling is replaced with a pit in your stomach. Now it seems too big, too worrisome, too impossible. What happened???!! How could something that felt so freakin’ good just days ago now feel so ughh?

In today’s Dose of Clarity episode I’m exploring this phenomenon and will be sharing why it happens and how you can avoid letting questions kill your dreams in the future.

 
 

P.S. If you’re ready to cultivate more Calm, Confidence and Clarity in your Life + Business, you need a Clarity Cleanse. Starting August 21st, I’m leading a 10-Day totally free Clarity Cleanse to help you strip away the stuff that’s no longer serving you and help you tap into your deep inner knowing so you can move it to the forefront of your life and business. Join here.
 

P.P.S. Don’t worry, The Clarity Confessions aren’t going anywhere! I’ll still be bringing you amazing interviews every other week, but these Dose of Clarity episodes will give you a chance to learn more about my personal (never-ending) journey towards Clarity :-)

Confession #028: “I would still be on my couch trying to figure it out if I hadn't made that investment" with Nicole Liloia

 
 

Today I am so excited to introduce you to Nicole Liloia, a business strategist for women who want to make more money doing work they love. After receiving her Masters Degree in Social Work from Columbia University in NYC, Nicole received her first taste of entrepreneurship when she opened her own private practice while still working at a non-profit. Using her background as a licensed clinical social worker, Nicole now focuses on helping her clients slow down, reclaim their lives & fill them up with things that truly matter.

In true Clarity Confession style, Nicole opens up about how her own negative money mindset kept her from accomplishing her business goals, and offers helpful advice for anyone struggling with overcoming their own mindset blocks.
 

 
 

Listen to Nicole's Clarity Confession to learn:

  • Why taking the steps to build a business can give you more clarity than you may realize

Dose of Clarity: How to manifest anything you desire...

 
 

So first off, I have to let you in on a secret. I don’t really like the word “manifest”.

To me it suggests that there’s something magical about creating the life you desire. But honestly, nothing could be further from the truth. We ALL have the ability to create a life that we totally adore -- it’s our purest state and truest nature!

In today’s Dose of Clarity episode I’m diving into what manifesting means to me and how to harness it’s power to draw in the stuff you really want for yourself and your business.

 
 

P.S. Don’t worry, The Clarity Confessions aren’t going anywhere! I’ll still be bringing you amazing interviews every other week, but these Dose of Clarity episodes will give you a chance to learn more about my personal (never-ending) journey towards Clarity :-)

Dose of Clarity: Not NO, just “Not Yet…”

 
 

Do you ever hit a BIG obstacle and figure it’s the Universe saying “NO!” to whatever it is that you’re creating?
 
Well, I’m here with another take on that -- one that I hope will encourage you to realize that some dreams and desires are worth sticking with until they blossom into their fullness.

Confession #025: "My first year was a year of self-discovery and trusting my instincts" with Michelle Knight

 
 
My first year was a year of self-discovery and trusting my instincts. I started this business with NOTHING in mind!
