I’m so excited that today is finally here. It is the official launch of a book I co-authored called Behind Her Brand. My story on how my business has evolved over time is included in this book, along with nine other phenomenal women in business who are living out their dreams.
This book takes you on journeys of real life lessons, obstacles, think tank processes, disappointments, and the victories of 10 successful female entrepreneurs. It’s one of the first books I’ve read that shares both the ups and the downs of being in business for yourself, but of course I’m biased. I love the honesty and integrity these women bring to the table as a generation of women who are taking their place in the world of entrepreneurship and not afraid to share everything they know with anyone who asks.
I’d love to keep this conversation going. Comment below and let me know what your greatest challenges are as a women in business, or as a woman who is thinking of starting her own business.

Is it time to shake up your world a bit? It might be time to choose something different, or at least shift your perspective about success, love, and life. If something’s not working for you it’s time to change.
Change is positive. Change is exciting. Change is necessary. It is good for your mind, business, relationships, and your soul. When you embrace change, you can step into your life in a more fluid way, less rigid, and bring forth something better in the world for you and those around you.
Here are four things you can do to create more success, abundance, money, and joy in your business and life:
Born to Be Amazing
Most of my life I have struggled with the idea that I am even close to being Amazing, much less beautiful, successful, courageous, brilliant, etc. I have always been able to see the sparkle in others and watch them be amazing in who they are and what they do in the world. Seeing myself in their reflection was different. I felt less than, and never good enough. After spending a lot of time devouring God’s word, journaling and learning about who I am, I suddenly had a revelation that changed my whole perception about being called Amazing and really owning it.
You are not here by accident. You matter. YOU are a daughter of the King. YOU are God’s divine creation, his work of art, created to do good and exciting things, which God prepared in advance for you to accomplish.
And just as an artist works with clay, God is going to stretch and mold you in the process.
Your soul needs to be stretched to successfully meet the demands of life. God allows you to have a series of stretching experiences that will prepare you for what’s ahead.
Are you frustrated because,
…you know what you have to offer the world will impact and change lives, but you aren’t sure how to design a profitable business around it?
…there are so many online ways to market your services but you don’t know where to start or they don’t feel authentic to you and what you are offering?
…you know deep inside your purpose is bigger than you, but limiting beliefs and fear of becoming visible stops you from taking action to promote your services or products?
As a purpose-inspired entrepreneur, I know how you feel.
Do you have a great idea that you’ve been thinking about, dreaming about, planning, or even procrastinating about? I love planning, and planning is important, but sometimes we focus so much on the planning that we never get around to taking action and pursuing our dream.
One sure way to failure is to over plan and miss your window of opportunity. You analyze the situation so much but you never actually take action. Perfectionism and fear of failure can keep you from moving forward.
Every woman in business experiences peaks and valleys of success. If you look at what you want to accomplish in the next five months and suddenly feel overwhelmed, you are not alone.
Here are five strategies that are sure to give you a fresh perspective on your business and life as you kick those feelings of being stuck, frustrated or unsure to the curb:
1. Nothing is forever
Nothing in life is forever and that should encourage you to minimize your frustration when you encounter circumstances you don’t like. There is something in your life right now that is not permanent. If it is something you love, in what ways could you embrace and enjoy it more? If it’s something you dread, just hold on a little longer. This too shall pass.
