At some point I just got really sick of the fluff. I wished there was a way to listen to inspiring content without a bunch of fake enthusiasm and "extra" stuff. Long story short, I decided to make it happen.
I became obsessed with that feeling that hits me after a particularly inspiring coffee date with one of my likeminded girlfriends. I knew that I could replicate that feeling for my listeners, and the podcast was born.
It's called "You Might Not Like It" because that was my greatest fear -- that I would create this thing and that no one would listen. But that's the funny thing about fear, as soon as you put a name to it, it loses its power.
That name reminds me every single day to go after the things I want so deeply, unabashedly, and without fear. It reminds me that I'm the one who holds the power here.
There's this moment after a few cappuccinos and a good conversation with a great friend where we both take a deep breath. There's a moment of quiet and a look of inspiration that I can see her in eyes. She's ready to get home and tackle a million things on her to-do list.
I'm addicted to that feeling, because the inspiration is mutual.
Her motivation fuels me and her story gives me life. The fire I see in her eyes and the passion that runs through her veins gives me a sense of purpose.
So since I can't have coffee with everyone, this podcast can be our date. There's a fire within you and my promise is to keep tossing sparks your way

Regardless of the industry, our goal is to bring value and show a side of the business you've never seen before.
Gimme a double-high-five emoji if you sometimes fall prey to those nasty, negative thoughts that tell you you'll never reach your goals, so you may as well quit now.
Here's the thing, you can actually turn DOWN the volume on that negativity, and turn UP the volume on the positive. Trust me when I say it's a total game changer to make that switch. And you deserve it.
Need someone to grab you by the shoulders and give you a good shake?
