It’s HEEEEEERE!!! The RiSE HiGHER Podcast is LIVE and ready for your earballs!
This podcast was inspired last year when I hit an EPIC FAIL. Well … at least in my eyes. I give ALL the gritty details about it in Episode “0”, the Welcome/Intro Episode.
The short version is that I was totally in my shit, feeling sorry for myself, and wanting to quit what I’m doing. Through an inspiring and authentic (and divine) conversation with the amazing Katrina Scott of Tone it Up, she shifted me out of my negative downward spiral and back into my own power. Kat vulnerably shared a some of her own challenges and what she does to rise higher and overcome to keep moving forward.
After my convo with Kat, my soul was flooded with divine messages. One of the divine downloads was to do this podcast to share the ‘not so pretty parts’ of life, AND to have my guests share how they overcome their challenges and setbacks for others to learn and benefit from.
Sometimes you just need to hear the stories of others to get your power back and to see possibility to get out of your place of stuck-ness, alone-ness, or darkness. That was exactly what Kat did for me.
It’s time we take off our masks and share the truth and challenges of life, and that’s what my amazing guests do. They get raw and real.
In these heartfelt conversations, I draw out the actions steps, practices and habits that worked for them – the very ones YOU can use immediately in your own life to rise higher and take your life to the next level. And even if you’re in a great place, how to go even higher.

Do you ever feel stuck, stressed out, or overwhelmed and wish you could have some help, but you’re either afraid to ask, or you don’t know how to ask? I totally get how hard it can be to ask for support and to feel comfortable with receiving it. So many people tell me that they struggle with it, so you’re not alone.
Asking for help is not something many of us have been taught to do. Instead most of us were taught to be strong or independent. I know I was. And if we needed support, it meant we were not smart enough, good enough, or worthy enough.
So, instead of asking for support, you try to do everything yourself. You think that you’re the only one that can do it your way, or you say ‘no’ when anyone offers to help you and then you wind up stressed out, overwhelmed, tired, or feeling stuck and alone and you don’t know what to do.
We have all been there! So check out today’s video that I shot with FitLife.tv for 4 Tips To Make Asking For Help Easier.
“Be strong enough to stand alone, smart enough to know when you need help and brave enough to ask for it.” – Unknown
As you know, I’m ALL about Self-Love. One of the elements of self-love is self-compassion. This one was hard for me to embrace because I was on auto-pilot with the self-judgment and self beat-up. You feel me? BUT, if you want to stay motivated and inspired in life and to experience true and everlasting inner peace, then being compassionate with yourself is a must!
I shot this Mindset Monday video with FitLife.tv where I share some ways that you can open your heart to self-compassion. Check it out and let me know what you think. My desire for you is that you know your own love because I know it will transform your life.
Need a little help to overcome the fear that’s holding you back from what you want in life?

I just got off the phone with a friend who’s been struggling with her business.
I could feel her pulling her hair out on the other end of the phone when she said, “I’ve done EVERYTHING and nothing is working!!”
I asked her, “What’s everything that you’ve done?”
She listed off some actions that she’s taken to build her business. As I listened to her, ideas and strategies that she hadn’t tried yet began popping into my mind. I was pumped to flood her with more possibilities.
Once my friend finished sharing I started rattling off my ideas.
One idea after the next, I heard, “yeah … but …” followed by some reason for why it wasn’t going to work, or that she had kinda-sorta done that, or some other obstacle that was in the way for why it wasn’t possible.
After slinging out 4 ideas, and getting smacked down by ‘yeah but’s,’ I felt myself getting frustrated. (I could see why she was stuck and frustrated!)
I stopped sharing, and I stopped her by asking, “Do you even want this to work? Because everything I’m sharing with you, you keep shooting it down. You keep coming up with some excuse or reason for why it’s not going to work, and that’s what’s blocking you from what you want. It feels like you’ve got more reasons for why it won’t for than you do for why it will.”
Now, I’m not saying that my ideas were the ones that were going to catapult her into the impact and success she wanted, but being closed off to possibilities is definitely not going to get you what you want.
Those two words, “Yeah … but …” are dream killers. Those two words block out possibilities and keep you stuck. Those two words have you focus on what won’t work rather than what will.
If you feel blocked right now in getting what you want, check in for a moment to see if you’re a ‘yeah … but-er…’
Do you have reasons and excuses in your mind that you keep telling yourself that are holding you back?
Ahem, things like ‘yeeeeeah … buuuut …’
:: I don’t have what it takes (I need to learn more)
:: I’m not good enough
:: I don’t have the money
:: I don’t have the time
:: It won’t work for me
:: People don’t want to hear what I have to say
:: I’m not good at _____ (or I don’t know how to do it)
:: I’m afraid
:: I can’t do this
:: I lack focus/not organized enough
:: I’m not as good as he/she is
OR, are you open and willing to all possibilities? Because that’s what’s required if you want to manifest your miracles!
If you want to call in the things you desire, ya gotta stay open. And one step in the right direction to have that happen is to switch the “but” to “and.” It’s a game changer.
So if you catch yourself saying ‘yeah…but…,’ switch that up to ‘yes… and…’ then keep your heart open to possibilities that will move you towards what you want.
To give you some examples :
:: Yes, I don’t have the money, and I know I can create it
:: Yes, I am afraid, and I’m going to go for it anyway!
:: Yes, there may be people who don’t want to hear what I have to say, and there are people who do!
Our language creates our reality. Use language that supports you in achieving all that your heart desires, because you deserve it.
Comment below and let me know if you’re going to go from ‘yeah, but’ to ‘yes, and’!
And if you do, what new action will you take today as you ‘yes, and’ something in your life?
