The Perfect Place To Write Is . . .

Your life story is meant to be out there, helping people.

😜 It really does feel mad, keeping it inside, doesn’t it?

It feels like something (big) is out of alignment . . . like a core part of you is meant to be breathing a different way, but it. just. isn’t.

When I left my full-time government social work career to become an entrepreneur back in 2009, all I could think about was getting my book done, so I started traveling, to places I was *certain* would be perfect to write in.

I mean, how could my books not get done?

🌲🌲🌲What else could I possibly do for two whole months in the cabin I rented way up north in Canada? It was just me, elk, bear, deer, and about a million birds. The town I stayed in had 40 houses total, and there wasn’t even a grocery store for two hours either direction (I would make the drive once a week and stock up!).

—do you think the book got done then?

No, it didn’t.

🌵 🐫 🌵 I also stayed in the middle of a desert, in a mesa, just me and my cat—this time with wild boars (desert pigs!) and lizards and snakes. For six months!!

—do you think my book got done then??


I hardly wrote at all. I was too distracted meeting new people, exploring new terrains, … really anything but getting my first book done.

📦 📦 📦 I had ALLLL my (eleven) boxes filled with my notes for that book and other books I wanted to write, shipped to each of those places, at $200-300 per trip, set and ready to get it all done—I rented the perfect stereotypical ‘writer’s paradise” homes to get them done, but nope. Nothing!

The time it DID get done? Was actually a very busy time in my life (not to mention dramatic, with some chaotic personal relationship dynamics I had going on at the time).

✅ ✅ ✅ It was 2017, I lived in a normal town, close to a giant city, ran my business, had a part-time job, was even getting some EMDR treatments for some post-traumatic stress symptoms that were surfacing (in case you don’t know, that treatment is *exhausting* … sleep for days, exhausting).

Yet — my first book got done.

I got so sick of not having it done, I was beginning to feel like expired milk, watching decades go by, still no book in my name on Amazon.

So, I stopped riding “someday” magical thinking traps, and I did what it took to make it happen.

….what is my point?

My point is your external environment has very little to do with your productivity — unless you let it OWN you, instead of you owning it.

Screw the perfect laptop, perfect pens, quietest homes, rooms, towns. None of those matter.

✅ What matters is your inner determination. Your decision to get it done, by a certain time, is most important.

✅ Second? Habit.

You don’t need several hours a day, you just need to get into a habit of writing, every day. Like exercising, before you know it, the book will be done (just like those 5 pounds fell off with you barely noticing).

👩 ✍️ ✅ The last thing needed is accountability—nothing gets done without tracking. You know if you’re able to motivate yourself, and if you’re not sure, ask yourself if, in the past three months, you’re seeing the results you want (i.e. pages and pages of writing done….aka a book almost done).

If not? Get support. Find a mentor to connect with regularly (I have “Gina in your pocket” text, phone and app support) as well as a group of *incredible* people in my Life Story Superstar daily writing group, which you can find more about here:

Whatever you do, get it done.

Down and done, whatever it takes.

❤️ For you.
❤️ For them.
✨ For it (your soul, your God, your mission = the reason you were given your life, in the first place!)

Want to feel JOY? Positive affirmations are not the answer.

Trying to “be positive” 24/7 is exactly like drinking, drugging, gambling, overeating or any other addiction.

Too many humans are out there saying “you’ve just got to be more positive” or “your mindset is not in the right place”—which leads to hiding, stuffing, numbing, avoiding or pretending negative emotions don’t exist altogether.

—YET, how the brain works?

When you numb one feeling, you numb them all.

*read that again*

You can’t eat chips to numb out anxiety ( 🙋🏻‍♀️ me!! I used to do that) or douse yourself in positive affirmations to pretend you’re not sad.

BUT you can enjoy chips sometimes! Use positive affirmations to complement your grounded, energetically healthy state of being 💯

The real work, to build and maintain a healthy infrastructure? is to FEELING YOUR FEELS.

😢 It’s ok to be sad.

😦 It’s ok to be scared, even terrified at times.

😡 It’s ok to be hurt, angry, frustrated, annoyed too.

What’s not ok, is pretending you’re not feeling anything, ESPECIALLY if you’re an entrepreneur, where risk

—read: facing the unknown, hence feeling scared at times—

is an essential part of the game we play on a daily basis.

Just feel them, let the emotions and feels play out, all the way through.

After you do, your energy body will breathe, you’ll hear your instinct again, then know exactly what to do next, every time.

THEN you’ll be free to feel joy, uplifted, excited, energized —the socially acceptable feels that can’t happen without feeling the other ones too.


PS. Emotional mastery is *essential* when getting your life story down on paper, because you visit all kinds of emotional places as you write, and you want to present your story in a grounded, healthy, empowered way so it can help people.

I just opened 2 spaces open for 2 hour intensives to get your life story outline down and done, plus your step by step plan, so you know exactly what to write AND any questions you have answered. Contact me for all the deets ✨ (my social media pages are all listed at very bottom of my home page

Your Soul is Your Beyoncé

Some of y’all are giving online coaches and mentors wayyy too much power right now – so here, let me show you how to take your power back.

When you hear them pushing “mental toughness” ???

Ask the ONLY guide that matters in your life right now and always, the top of the top dog, the only Beyoncé in your world worthy of your total, blind obedience: ✨YOUR SOUL ✨

Just ask this simple question: Am I entering the arena of growth right now, yes or no?

—If the answer is yes? Keep listening to them.

—But is the answer is no?


Press stop.

Block ‘em if that’s what you need to do right now to shut off the noise (especially if they’ve sneakily started colluding with self-sabotaging voices in your head, without you noticing, until now!).

🙂 you can always re-follow, press play again later, unblock WHEN YOU ARE READY 🙂

They don’t know better than you. Because the best mentors? At the top of their game? With the largest audiences (trust me I’ve hired them lol)?

💛✨They will always guide you BACK TO YOU.💛✨

I have always done this with my clients too, because I’m here to *empower* you, not have you depending on me for advice for the rest of your life.

The healthiest mentor/mentor relationships are not based in need (though it may FEEL that way, especially when you first start working together) — they are actually based in 💜 desire 💜

💜 DESIRE to have someone walk the next part of your life/business/health/relationship journey with you.

💜 DESIRE to make things go faster (they have a lot of shortcuts).

💜 DESIRE to laugh along the way—like pee-your-pants laugh as the load of doing everything alone is lifted off you, then you realize you can actually enjoy every bit of the ride (it’s really always just a choice).

💜 DESIRE to make it feel easy, because they’ve already moved the mountain you’re currently moving, so it’s not stressful to them.

Your heart comes first. It’s what guides everything, it’s the gateway to your soul, which is the only mentor you ever NEED in life.

✨✨✨Your soul is your #1 life guide, ALWAYS + IN ALL WAYS ✨✨✨

So when you hear coaches/mentors (including myself!) say, “keep going, no matter what” it does *not* EVER mean against your inner direction.



Barf! 🤮


When I say this kind of thing it’s prefaced by me saying “you’re in the arena already” or “you’re here because you already know this, for yourself and within yourself” or “you want this result over here, so you’re in the energy of going after it already, this is the way.”

—> that’s because you’re the ONLY one who can enter any kind of growth arena.

You choose FIRST, because you were guided internally, THEN you invite people along for your ride.

🚗✨You’re in front, leading the trip, led by your soul, they’re your amazing team peeps hopping along for the ride, willingly taking a back seat to your soul’s guidance and direction.

You’re in front, they’re in back when it comes to your life.

Not the other way around.

Don’t give anybody else that power!


PS. Is your soul directing you to get your life story down on paper and delivered to the world, so it can inspire others? Are you ready to practice standing in your personal power daily, to start/get back into the practice of listening to soul first?

Holding Pressure to Get Your Book Done!

You can learn to hold the pressure … you can even have fun while you do.

What pressure?

💥 the pressure of staring down the blank page, after watching YEARS (maybe even decades) go by without you getting your life story down on paper yet.

💥 energies moving through you – all kinds of them, including from your social media audience and every single person who reads your life story.

💥 you beating yourself up inside for not having your life story down on paper yet.

💥 money pressures that wanna squeeze the life right out of you, especially as you carve out time, to get your story down and done.

💥 stress and any health predicaments that show up for you and others you care about and love.

💥 the pressure of re-visiting each moment of the slice of life story you know you’re meant to share with the world – you GET TO learn to master this pressure, so nothing from the past will hold power over you ever again.

💥 people you love, in your personal life, going through their stuff: even being cruel to you at times.

💥 annoying people, loud people, even violent people (note: nothing about this says TOLERATE…this is about holding whatever happens, when it pops into your life unexpectedly).

💥 the pressure of what’s happening in the world right now.

You can hold it all, stay grounded, sit in your truth, wisdom, strength,

No. Matter. What.

You’ll trust yourself to move through ANY energy you come across while getting your life story down, delivered and done ✅

People around you will feel safer to be fuly themselves as you do 💙💗

Money will pour in and stay in, now that there’s a welcoming, solid, stable energetic container for it to land in 💵 💰

Your mental, emotional, physical health will soar! At an energetic level, you become untouchable ✨ 💪 ✨


PS Your life story is meant to be birthed into this world 🌎 ✨

Will you show up for it, to master all you get to master, while getting it down on paper, done, then delivered tot the world?

My group of 🌟 Life Story Superstars 🌟 has gathered and we meet DAILY, Monday to Friday, for 15 minutes, on Facebook Live, to do this work, to make mastery a habit.

To say goodbye to watching another day go by without honouring what we know we are meant to write down and share with the world—and there’s SPACE FOR YOU 😀✍️💕 join us here:

JUST BEING YOU … with money in your bank account!

I’ve always loved “JUST BE YOU” messages …

but they also really confused me, and pissed me off.

I mean, I loved BEING ME,


the only reason i was reading other people’s stuff online,

was because I needed to be a me


So telling me to “just be me” and the money will flow like magic, made me CRAY CRAY.

It had me spinning, real bad….

🤷🏻‍♀️ was it a trick?

🤷🏻‍♀️ was I being duped?

🤷🏻‍♀️outright lied to??

I didn’t get it.

What the F does that even mean,

make money being me,

when “me” literally has zero money in me’s bank account?

—🤔 🧐 Something was missing.

Of course, I didn’t want to CHANGE me altogether, I just wanted to add whatever that thing was that I was missing, that was stopping me from being prolific in the finance department.

So the only thing I knew to do was save save save my money, to finally talk to one of these mentors I so deeply admired, who kept telling me to be me, be me, be me!!!

😀 🦋💰 💕those mentors telling me to be me if I wanted to make all the monies 😀🦋💰 💕

When I finally did, I GOT IT.

All the money I invested in them seemed insignificant, like what they taught me, was worth SO MUCH MORE.

That if I wanted to, I could access even more money, to work with them more…

…because popping in their energy had me accessing THE ENERGY of the unlimited universal bank accounts we all have access to.

When we concentrate on THE ENERGY of things, first….so what we really want even has a chance to manifest in the physical, in the first place!!

(that’s what they’re all gonna tell you, some version of that…which is gold….trust me 😉 )

What have you got to lose in trying this coat on when you’re broke anyway?


So choose a pretty coat you like,

and get on with it.

It’s the pattern interrupt you need,

to get out of the spinning.

To stop the CRAY…

and return to YOU.

Being you … all the way you,

this time with da money.

A Mic Drop From the Universe

I was shocked to see what I was doing to myself, before I finally reached the place where I had cleared up enough inner stuff to publish my memoir.

It was a “look up to the sky, talk to the Universe” moment:

🤷🏻‍♀️ You mean to tell me, that my struggle bus with money had to do with my romantic relationships with men, all along?

🤷🏻‍♀️ That those romances were meant for me to see that nothing could really bring me security, except me?

🤷🏻‍♀️ That until I felt solid, whole, complete, stable and sovereign within myself, my business would stay at a “manageable” size, preventing me from experiencing my dream for it to grow, grow, GROW?

🤷🏻‍♀️ That I could never have *ever* finished my book without working through all this first, because writing a book is holding people, holding community, through powerful transformation….

💪 and you gotta be strong enough to hold that, in order to live in the frequency of powerful transformative author? 💪

Universe (Nodding): Yes, yes that’s right.

ok then!

When Money Stands in Your Way

💰 💰 It was scary *no terrifying* for me to face what was REALLY going on in my relationship with money 💰 💰

Like that deep deep shame and subservience I felt whenever somebody paid for something for me.

I would instantly flip into Cinderella mode!

Like I owed them my life or something.

Like I owed them everything,

—not just the few bucks they spotted me.

YET…at the same time…because I was in Cinderella mode, I had *no idea* how to bring in the level of cash that would have me supporting myself through life, which meant I had to rely on others for money (until I learned).

😡 😠 😡 this was such a frustrating, VICIOUS CYCLE for me, I can’t even tell you!!

I KNEW I was a powerful soul who could step into her capability, but for the life of me I didn’t know how.

I hated how mean people looked at me, called me “mooch” and “freeloader” then treated me exactly how I felt about myself in those coping days: LIKE A CINDERELLA.

All I wanted was to be independent, thrive, and write checks to organizations I cared about, like animal humane societies!!

😑 Yet there I was, stuck as F*CK 😑

Completely unaware of how old trauma, was ruling my life …

How I was living according to the belief that money was OWNERSHIP —-something I picked up early on in life, that got mixed up in trauma, programming me to give it wayyy too much power over me and my life. Causing me to want to avoid dealing with it, fight it, or run far and fast as I possibly could from it!!!!

My nervous system literally reacted to money like it was a bear charging at me, coming to steal my freedom.


99% of people are unaware of what goes on in their subconscious minds,

=clueless (like I was 🙋🏻‍♀️) to how much power we *really* have to change things!

‘Cuz when we do the work, of uprooting, shining the light on, then clearing what’s laying below our conscious awareness,

…the impossible becomes possible.

…what we once thought could never change, changes.

…we start living how we truly want (vs yearning/wishing/hoping we’ll one day have it)

💜💜💗💜💗 I now live with a much warmer, empowered, more nourishing relationship with money!

I have even been teaching money courses in person and online since 2009, to share this wealth of wisdom I’m so grateful to have mastered, with others!

Ever since covid, my “money healing” work has looked like helping people moving old energy out of the way, so they can make space for success, as they define it, by getting some of their own personal life experiences down on paper, then, if they want, share them with their loved ones/the world, just as I have here.

(🌸 just visit my website if this work is speaking to you 🌸)

I do this because EVERY kind of success is literally created by connecting deeply to others, so that we can help them. Sharing personal stories is the best way to connect and reach others in a meaningful ways —and because most people aren’t doing it, it also gives you a leading edge.

BTW…I so appreciate my Cinderella response that I lived with for so long today, because it was how I needed to think, feel and behave to get through some tough situations. It helped me cope, survive …

…at the same time i’m EVER GRATEFUL to have cleared remnants from old trauma that left my ✨sweet brain 🧠 confused about whether I was still in danger or not, and therefore living like that Cinderella coping pattern = pushing money away.

(unresolved trauma causes MASS confusion about present time and past time in the brain, in case you didn’t know 😉)

It wasn’t easy, but I know you’re ever persistent, ever resilient, EVER COMMITTED to having the experience of life you want to be having, like me, so don’t you dare give up, Sister! Hang in!


The Way BEYOND Selfishness

Putting myself first sounded downright SELFISH to me.

🌎 I mean, our rent on the planet is service to others, is it not?

Yet at the same time, a part of me, deep inside, was like, “WHAT ABOUT MEE??”

It was there long enough, loud enough, that I knew it wasn’t meant to be ignored, pushed aside, numbed away—it felt important, even as my monkey mind and early “good girl” conditioning worked 24/7 to shut it up.

So … I set out on a journey of self-exploration, now I’m sharing here, from the other side, what changed EVERYTHING for me:

🤷🏻‍♀️ 🤷🏻‍♀️ 🤷🏻‍♀️ What I didn’t realize back then, that I realize now, is that putting myself first, meant connecting to SOURCE first…which is the only place we can ever really serve others from, by:

🧡 holding a big enough container for them (when we connect to source, the size and power of our containers have no bounds or limits)

🧡 coming from the right place, one of pure focus on them, pure service, by knowing who we’re meant to serve, aka our life’s purpose, AND

🧡 being fed and nourished ourselves, because us serving them = what makes it possible for us to do our life’s purpose in the first place.

So, it wasn’t selfish at all.

That impulse inside was trying to show me a different way, through continuous aching for loving attention, DID get to be heard, even nourished, to full bloom, after all 🌺 (I knew it! 😉)

Coming from source/soul (whatever you call the energy that created all life) is *always* win-win, see that??

They get fed, you get fed, everyone thrives—all at once 💗

Far from selfish or (drainingly, exhaustively) only about others.

✨Living from soul is always the way ✨


The Genius Pressure Cooker


I grew up watching hockey but haven’t watched it in about 10 years now …

I was visiting a friend last night who is a hockey NUT so we watched Vancouver play Minnesota.


= perfect for me, a mindset maestre, to witness…



The energy was off the charts.

I was literally at the edge of my seat those last 10 minutes,

when Vancouver needed ONE GOAL to tie (it was 4-3 for Minnesota at 5 minutes left)

—-THEN they scored!!!!

—-THEN just 11 seconds into overtime, Vancouver scored again!!!!

😆 👏 👏 eeeeeeEEE!!! 😊🙌🤗

It was so freakin’ exciting ….

So here’s my point: PRESSURE COOKER.

Playoffs are all about pressure!!!

My friend kept saying “I’ve never seen them play like this” yet she’s been watching them for years and years.

These players were deep in the cooker, and it brought out their best.

My question for you 🌟 SUPERSTARS 🌟today is: how often do you put *yourself* in the cooker, to give yourself a chance to see your best????

The players who scored didn’t know for sure they would score, or even get shots at the goal.


and what I’m inviting you to take with you today:

is that the only way to guarantee it COULD happen, is by getting yourself in the game.

(another way of saying it: only way to guarantee you 100% won’t score/reach your goal, is not putting yourself in the game at all)

✅✅✅ Send me a message if you’d like this kind of support on the regular for your next success goal—-which, of course, is created by sharing our life stories with our people, to inspire the heck out of them,

and let them know, without a doubt, that we are all in this together, when we say yes to ourselves, and proclaim, “I’m going for it!!!”

Success is created by getting in that pressure cooker ourselves (sometimes life chucks us in there against our will too) then showing our people what’s possible for them,

LEADING THE WAY so we can really help them from the other side, through our books, our businesses, just the way we are….

…because watching those players, the top 1% mindset/pressure masters in the world, sure inspired the F outta me and my friend and so many others last night.

They showed up to * practice* rocking out their genius, under immense pressure.

We showed up to witness what that looks like.

….and that’s either the end of it for us, we get the high, let go, then go back to our old lives in a few days, once the high wears off.


We claim that we were meant to step into our greatness too, then take action to do something about it.

👏👏👏 send me a message if that’s you ✅ or visit my website

so you to see what pressure cooker containers I have available for you to step in, and show yourself YOUR BEST through, right now 💗
