I’m not going to lie. When I first started out as a dietitian, I was underpaid, overworked, and felt defeated because I was not making the impact I knew I was capable of. I was burned out before even kicking off my career.
Just because you CAN do it all, doesn’t mean you should.
Going from ‘solopreneur’ to CEO feels like a monumental change. But it all starts with mindset—Trust me, the actions will follow.
Even if you’re doing everything yourself as a ‘one person show,’ that doesn’t mean you’re doing it well (Sorry, but it’s true). I am GREAT at making content. I love it. It’s my jam. But building out a funnel? I CAN do it. But would it be done better and faster if I handed it off? Hell yeah! So I do. Offloading tasks that you don’t enjoy, aren’t the best at, or that take you too much time is the foundation for transitioning from solopreneur to CEO.
As an entrepreneur, it can be hard to decide where to spend your money to improve your business. Should it go towards a team member? Coaching? New equipment? Or… should you spend it on new Nike dunks instead? (We’ve all been there…just bought a new pair of dunks the other day. Worth every penny.) Check out the top 4 investments for entrepreneurs based on my own experience growing a multiple 7 figure brand!

The nursery came together right about 38 weeks along and I truly couldn’t love the space more and what we picked out. The below graphic shows everything we bought from either Target, Etsy, World Market, or Amazon mostly and even includes the diaper bag I’m obsessed with. I knew I wanted a neutral room she […]

Part 1 of our wedding series is here (Getting Ready and First Look). One of the most magical parts of the day was the ceremony. I have to say I didn’t give our ceremony a ton of thought leading up. I’m not sure if it was because we were reading vows that have been said […]

Today I am chatting all about my morning routine! I get a lot of questions about my apple cider vinegar drink, what kind of coffee I drink, or how I start off my day so positive, so I thought I’d share! Journal. I spend 10-15 minutes journaling in the morning. Usually it’s thoughts I have […]
