#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.

What’s your word of the year?

#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.

#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 …

#46: Back on the Farm🐄

Podcast - FB IG (MB) (8)

Growing up on a farm was a privilege, although I didn’t think so at the time.

But now, so few people get the opportunity, and I can’t help but think they are missing out. Missing out on the nitty gritty of what it takes to really create the food we eat, the family bonding that goes along with that, and of course all the smells. Nothing like fresh cut alfalfa.

This episode we dive into foundations of starting a business strong so you can grow up big and strong. We’re going to hear all about…

Hey , 

Can we all agree? 🙋🏻‍♀️

There is nothing like a great backside. 

A lean, tight, money making backside!





I'm talking about your back office y'all.  


You can have a stellar location, beautiful office, perfect marketing materials and even provide a great product or service.  But if you don’t have a back office that keeps you informed, organized and on track it doesn’t matter.
