(This post does not come without massive grief, emotions, heartache, and tears.)
Yesterday I was sitting in a restaurant looking out at the ocean, having an extremely productive morning.
In fact I had just come off of an extremely productive weekend, getting things done that would move my dream business forward.
Everything was going great and then I opened instagram and the first post I see is from Lewis Howes and he was sharing the sudden news of Kobe Bryant’s passing, after a helicopter crash.
I was immediately sick to my stomach.
‘This isn’t real. There is no way.’ I thought to myself.
So I looked it up, and YES, it was in fact true.
I felt like I was going to vomit. I couldn’t believe this was happening.
About 30 minutes after I read that his 13 year old daughter was also with him.
In fact there was 9 people on board, and there were no survivors.
In an instance my whole entire mood, energy, and life changed (more on this below).
Did I know Kobe...

A question that I get asked often is ‘What made me decide to become an Entrepreneur?’
That answer is both simple and complicated.
I will give you the simple answer first.
I lost my corporate job and had a decision to make which was to go for it and become an entrepreneur or go back to the corporate world.
After spending 10 years climbing the corporate ladder and achieving success, I was ultimately tired of working extremely hard for someone else and being a slave to certain hours and days.
I was tired of getting screwed around with my pay.
I was tired of working the same hours, day in and day out.
I was tired of being limited to my holiday time.
So when I was presented with an opportunity to take the leap of becoming my own boss and doing whatever Entrepreneurs do, I went for it.
This also happened...
I don’t know about you but I actually crave a break from the social world on the regular.
And this weekend I was reminded just how much I enjoy when I have no wifi or cell service.
I spent the weekend at my dads and he did not have any wifi and I had no cell service, it was BLISS.
But before I paint this picture that it was amazing, I want to explain what happened when I realized I had work to do and NO wifi to complete anything….
I had planned on getting a few things done over the weekend and left them on my list because I knew I would have time to get them done
But when I realized I would not have access to complete those things (due to wifi) my monkey mind went into overdrive.
“You are going to be behind with your work now” (judgement / negative)
“Why didn’t you just get it finished when you could?” (Personal beatdown)
“What are people going to think if you do not post like you said you would?” (Judgement / pure craziness)

Good Morning You Beautiful Human and Welcome To A New Week!
This past week I have felt a BIG shift in my life. Things feel different. My creativity and drive are high right now and things are flowing.
This shift happened because of a couple reasons:
(Like this desire to understand oneself...
I remember a time when I used to always be worried about doing and saying the right thing.
I was always thinking scenarios over again. I would wonder if that person was talking about me.
It was crazy.
I was trying to keep up this image of the person I thought I was supposed to be.
I became very dark inside and I was on auto-pilot just living my life. My mind was always in the past, the future, and the what-ifs.
For so many years I was always worrying about everyone else opinions over my own.
But, I don’t live like that anymore.
I live in a place where I don’t give a f*ck.
I live in a place of ‘ let them talk about me. Let them talk about how I came out of nowhere.’
I found my voice, my self-love, my self-worth, and my self-acceptance.
I live with the lightbulb turned on inside. I live with freedom and flow mentally.
We become prisoners to our own life. We become prisoners to our own thoughts.
Your reality doesn’t have to be stuck in your thoughts. You...

In 2013 after spending the weekend partying at a music festival, drinking copious amounts of booze, consuming drugs, and getting hardly any sleep, I started to get little dots of dry red skin on my legs.
As the months went on, my partying and lifestyle went to a whole new level. The little red dots started showing up everywhere on my body. My legs, my arms, my face, my whole body was covered in these little red dots.
Naturally, the first thing I did was google ‘red dry skin dots on my body’. Self-prescribed doctor Danielle had everything under the sun!
Keep in mind at this point in my life I was just a motivated, rah-rah, positive person. I didn’t really understand the whole mindset, our spirit self, and what was really going on.
After going to the walk-in clinic, the verdict was “I am not sure what you have but take...
