RIDICULOUSLY INSPIRING ENTREPRENEURS

A JOURNEY TOWARDS
LOVE & ACCEPTANCE

I KNOW WHAT I SHOULD BE DOING, SO WHY AM I NOT DOING IT?

You know that girlboss who you totally admire and would LOVE to pick her brain over coffee? Well, here's your chance to hear her speak about everything from the tips that make her so successful, to where she finds motivation on any given workday. 

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? 

I can be that girl. 

There's no coddling, no sugar-coating, no people pleasing on this podcast. If you're looking for rah-rah tales to stroke your ego, this ain't the show for you. But if you're ready for a good ol' dose of TRUTH, let's go.
