We're taking a little break from our "Make Your Business Boom!" series to share with you this gem, !

We can do all the prospecting, marketing, nurturing, and fancy sales… but ultimately we need to ask for what we want ladies.

No matter if it's a real life baby, or a business, or in this case a podcast, that first year is HUGE!

The learning, the growing, the stretching, the figuring it out and a few sleepless nights.  

It’s been a huge, EPIC year in all the ways. But creating In The Nitty Gritty was a true highlight for me, and kept the fun in 2020. From creating content, to recording to sharing it with you all… I loved it all!

#53 Brené Brown and me....

In Brené Browns book Dare to Lead, there are so MANY great nuggets (obvs, because she's brilliant) but the one I want to talk about here is values.

She says we have ultimately two values that we abide by in life, or are the compass for us to help us navigate this winding journey of life. They may change during the different seasons of life, but ultimately they keep us anchored, grounded, and rooted in who we are and how we lead.

#52 My Top 10 Goals Setting Tips

Add a heading

It's December 23rd today! 


We have about 7 days yet to the end of  the year, and for some, the thought of throwing in the towel sounds lovely.  

"Put a fork in me. I'm done."


"It's the most wonderful time of the year."   

Well....yes and no right? 

It's definitely different.  

I love the traditions, the running around delivering gifts, the singing, the church service, the food, and the kids sitting all together in the same room for more than 5 minutes loving each other and…

#48: 3 Simple Steps to Your Epic Life


Hey , 

Maybe it's a long holiday weekend, or the fact that the end of 2020 is on the horizon that I'm thinking about goals and leveling up.  

Or maybe it's because I'm sitting in the ski chalet while my kids are having the time of their life and I feel like I won the lottery! 


You see, two years ago my brother took my entire family skiing.  That would be 5 kids and me.  Downhill skiing.  No small chunk of change. 

But he gave me the vision - I wanted to be able …
