Setting Boundaries Like a Boss

 

One of the topics I am asked to speak about the most, whether it is as a speaker, podcast guest, or with my own coaching clients is boundaries.  The subject of boundaries comes up so often because it might seem simple, but is actually quite complicated.   

There is no cookie-cutter, one size fits all situations solution.  Boundaries are culturally determined, affected by our personalities, temperaments,  stage of life, mental health, personal...

Balancing Passion & Profit with Heather Zeitzwolfe

 

Many of us start out with one goal in mind - creating a business around something we are passionate about.  In fact “Follow your passion and build a business you love” is probably the most popular headline for a huge number of online business coaches nowadays.  It’s a very seductive promise and a glamorous fantasy, but it is simply not enough to keep your business boat afloat. 

Now, don’t get me wrong, passion is important, and maybe even...

People Pleasing is Killing Your Profits

 

I think it's really important as women and business owners that we understand how our culture has conditioned us to have certain beliefs, expectations, habits, and behaviors that interfere with our ability to achieve our goals and be successful. Most of us don't even realize all the things that we are doing that are killing our profits. So I'm willing to offend, to annoy, and even risk being a trigger because I think for those of you that are ready to hear the unvarnished truth and...

The Multipassionate Creative Career with Sarah Mac

 

Growing up singing and dancing in the UK, Sarah Mac fell in love with the theater and decided that a career in the performing arts was the one for her.  A believer in manifesting opportunities in alignment with her desires, Sarah found herself taking advantage of one exciting experience after another.

Changing Your Mind, One Thought at a Time

 

I often say that human beings only have two problems: We are always thinking and we always believe ourselves. While this may sound sarcastic (and it probably is) the underlying truth is that for many of us, our thoughts are the source of our suffering, not our circumstances.  That’s not to say our circumstances might not need some changing, but plenty of us have everything we need to be healthy, happy, successful, and fulfilled and we aren’t, because of our...

Question Your Fear

 

In the years I’ve been coaching bold, brilliant, badass female entrepreneurs, I have never once encountered one that was not capable of more than she was experiencing in her business success.  Sometimes the issue was skill, occasionally it was will, but nine times out of ten,  it came down to fear.  Fear of failure, fear of criticism, fear of being envied, fear of embarrassment, fear of proving someone right, even fear of betraying their roots are just some of...

Women & Money: It's Complicated with Melanie Lockert

mindset money resiliency Nov 01, 2021
 

The more women I talk to, the more I realize that almost all of us have “issues” with money.  We either aren’t earning enough, are living beyond our means, are caught in the trap of student loan and/ or credit card debt, or are terrified to ask for what we actually need to float our boat.  And this doesn’t even begin to cover the fact that most of us grew up hearing all manner of money nonsense from our parents that virtually guarantees we...

Negative Self Talk

 

One of the things that is so frustrating about the human brain is how often it cranks out negative self-talk, no matter how smart, capable, or successful we are.  In this solo episode of The Driven Woman Podcast, I spill the tea on how the brain actually works, why there is nothing wrong with you just because you have negative thoughts about yourself (spoiler alert, just about everyone does….) but how simple it actually is to change them and think better thoughts. ...
