  • It’s confession time! What really creeped me out when I started my business


    Hola ,

    I have a confession to make: years ago, when I started teaching about how to apply the principles of abundance in group settings I knew I wanted to make a business out of what I loved to do in my day to day life.

    The problem I faced was that I was too shy about putting my work out the into the world because I was afraid of what others may think.

    I knew I had to learn marketing skills to be able to share my message with a large amount of people around the world and make money with my coaching and speaking careers. The problem was that just the sound of the word “marketing” gave me the creeps. I could see in my mind these sleazy infomercial kind of marketeers and I wanted nothing to do with it!

    So, what were my options? I didn’t have any… I just kept doing what I was doing hoping that  word of mouth would take me far. But the truth was, it could only take me so far.

    If I wanted to commit and make a living doing what I loved the most, then I needed to get out of my comfort zone and jump into the online marketing world.

    I usually say that if you ask you will receive. Well, I asked the Universe to guide me to make my business dream a reality and within no time, Marie Forleo showed up in my life.

    The first thing I learned from Marie was how to approach my marketing from place of heart and soul. Read More

  • The biggest leap of faith you’ll ever take (And big changes coming for 2016!)


    Have you ever faced a situation where you had to make a major decision that would change the course of your life?

    Did your body cringe in fear, yet your soul knew it was exactly what you needed to do?

    If you’ve ever found yourself facing a huge life change, you know exactly how much power a single moment in time can have: the moment you decide to do something totally new.

    I’ve been through a major changing event in my life the past weeks. After eleven years living in Hawaii, I am moving to Austin.

    I know, you may be thinking, Austin Texas? But there’s no surf there!

    Believe me, I am aware of that, yet this is my next step to take. Let me explain… Read More

  • The seven questions to ask yourself that will help you make any decision in life


    Lately I’ve been presented with a “dream” project. A project that would pay me great money and propel me to huge exposure in my career. Something that I’ve prayed for to happen in the past has been presented to me at a time that felt like the “perfect time” to do it.

    But there was a problem:

    There was an energy behind it that was harsh.

    Boundaries were overstepped.

    I didn’t feel safe.

    I didn’t feel comfortable.

    For a few days, I tried to “make it work” in my mind. “Oh, I can do this. I only have to push through for a few weeks and then it will be done. I’ll get the money and all the glitz and glam that comes around with this”.

    But in truth, as I started asking myself a few questions, I realized that I can’t make it work.

    I don’t want to make it work.

    I do want the money, but I want peace and Loving in my life above anything and everything else. Read More

  • Do you feel fear of the future? How to overcome your rumbling mind and move into an abundant mindset


    Today I want to share an interview I did months ago with Mind & Money Coach Kylie Patchett.

    What started as an interview focused on how to move into greater Abundance in our lives, ended up as a raw, honest conversation about fear, overcoming hardship and finding a way to deal with our unconscious thoughts that are keeping us apart from our peace and happiness.

    When we recorded this interview, I remember feeling this energy of Abundance “taking over” me. There was a sense of enthusiasm coming through me and I couldn’t stop nor control the flow. I usually go where the energy leads me and in this case it was to share about a very personal process throughout the months that followed the separation from my ex-husband.

    I always believed that if any of my experiences may help other people to overcome their own challenges then I will share with an open heart and in all honesty. This is exactly what happened in this heartfelt interview. Read More

  • Four tips to overcome perfectionism


    Are you putting off launching your online program, writing your book, getting your website ready or doing your sales copy?

    Over the past few years, I’ve talked to hundreds of women who shared similar scenarios:

    They had a dream, but they didn’t want to fail. So they didn’t do anything.

    They said they were working on their projects, but they got stuck in the details. They wouldn’t let go of their work, wouldn’t let others see it, until it was absolutely perfect.

    Or even worst: they wouldn’t even start working on their projects because of the high expectations they had placed on themselves.

    The problem is that we stop moving forward because we get stuck trying to achieve perfection.

    When your creativity is held inside you, you get stagnant and start feeling disconnected from your Higher Self. When you’re disconnected from your true nature—the one that creates, manifests, activates, and shares, you may start feeling sad, angry or even depressed.

    Most of the time we have these feelings, because we’re avoiding what we need to do. In that avoidance, we get lost.

    If you are going through this situation, I want you to try something different. If anything, try it only for a day and see how it goes. It may be the start you need to break through. Read More
