I love working from home and the freedom that has come from building my online business. HOWEVER, the flip side of that is the isolation can be really hard. It wasn’t something I had anticipated struggling with when I ended my career as a hairstylist and became an online lifestyle coach. I was so excited to be pursuing my dreams I hadn’t considered the impact socially distancing myself would have. The need for connection led me to the following tips I won’t wait any longer to share with you.Continue reading
If you’re new to working from home, all that freedom can really have an impact on your focus and motivation. It’s easy to create excuses and reasons why you can push something off til later. Unfortunately, when we push things off til later we create our own stress. To do lists can pile up quick and with it stress and anxiety.Continue reading
I started working from home a little over four years ago, after working as a hairstylist for 13 years. To say it was a change is a massive understatement. I went from being around hundreds of people a week to the quiet freedom of solo-preneurship. Let me tell ya, the first few months… couple of years might be more accurate… were a weird battle ground of figuring out what worked for me and how I approach work.
Although hanging out in my sweats all day while typing away on my laptop seemed perfect at first, I started to lose myself and really needed better boundaries and guidelines.Continue reading

As your workload increases, do you find yourself cutting corners to meet deadlines?
Are those corners you’re cutting personal?
After a while, have you noticed those cut corners impacting your wellbeing?
Does your career excite you and bring you happiness? Before starting Vibrant Lifestyle Coaching, I can say the last few years of my career as a hairstylist were no longer fulfilling. That lack of fulfillment led to anxious commutes to work and long draining days. Those long draining days and the energy that came with them started leaking into other areas of my life. I soon found myself stuck and in denial about my power over the situation.
In the beginning, I would focus on the things that I still loved from the job. However, over time those pockets of joy just weren’t enough. So I focused on pouring into other areas of my life but soon that left me drained as well. It was like dissatisfaction was a steady state in my life.
Can you relate?
One of the main reasons I notice my clients stay too long in positions that no longer bring them joy is fear.
Fear of the unknown.
Fear or failure.
Fear of their big dreams.
If you can relate and find yourself in that place where fear has you stuck and losing life, I want you to remember something:
So much of life unfolds in the doing. Your fears tell a story that keep you stuck and it’s just that a story. It’s not your truth or even the reality of life. Until you start making moves towards your big dreams you have no idea how life will really respond. Your trust and effort will bring about your wildest dreams but first you have to get out of fear’s grasp.
A job that excites you is waiting for you, you just have to believe in your ability to make it so.
There’s so much power in slowing down and tuning inward on your journey to a life that fulfills you. Make some time to check out this video series on The Power of Slowing Down and bring more energy for the life you’re living into your world.
We’ve all had that coworker who does the most. There’s levels to the doing the most game but right now we’ll specifically speak on the office butt-kisser. The one who goes above and beyond and it induces the most epic eyerolls. The coworker who inserts themselves in every situation to keep eyes on them. The coworker who seems to know everyone’s names and what’s happening in their lives. The coworker who seems to be on every project inserting their two sense. The coworker who has something to say about everything regardless of whether they were asked.
It makes you crazy how despite being so annoying, every opportunity seems to fall into their lap.
It’s infuriating and leaves you wondering if anyone else is just as triggered by this person. There are even days that leave you wondering if anyone is really that genuinely helpful and thoughtful. Continue reading
