The life changing skill of becoming your own coach.

284: The life changing skill of becoming your own coach.

It took me a very large chunk of my career to realize that if I truly wanted to empower my clients to live their life in a way that nourishes their health, I needed to teach them how to lead NOT to follow.

I think it took me a while to figure this out because I had never been a part of a community that taught health through the lens of self-leadership.

So, I created one.

In this episode of the Grace & Grit podcast, TWO members from the Rumble & Rise community share their experiences and how the skills they have learned helped them to mend the relationship they have with themselves and fortified their confidence to direct their own lives.

Self-care is really just basecamp.

274: Self-care is really just basecamp.

YOU are an incredibly unique human expression.

YOU are here to cause, contribute and inspire things in the world in a way that only you can.


It is really freaking hard to be a fully expressed human doing the work she feels called to do in the world when you are living in a constant state of illness, reactivity, frustration, and self-doubt.

Self-care isn’t about fitting into your skinny jeans and feeling Instagram-worthy on your beach vacation. Self-care is what allows you to show up as your most vibrant self so you can do the most important work of your life. It’s the basecamp for the mountain you are really here to summit.

So, in this episode, I explore the basic measure that makes a massive impact on fortifying your chemistry, so you are in the best condition for whatever it is you decide to make this lifetime about.

Your Weight is NOT the Problem

273: Your Weight is NOT the Problem

Our culture LOVES to focus on “weight loss” as the linchpin to improved health, but that is problematic for so many reasons…

There are a TON of unhealthy ways to lose weight.
It is possible to be thin and metabolically obese.
Your lifestyle habits influence your health more than your weight actually does.

In this episode of the Grace & Grit Podcast, I challenge you to drop the “my weight is the problem” storyline and instead, shift your focus to the real problems.

Preparing to Succeed

272: Preparing to Succeed

Trying to make a significant change in your life without doing a little prep work (carving out time, making a plan, putting forethought into obstacles that may arise) often makes all the difference between success and failure.

Yes, prep takes time.
No, prep is not fun and exciting.


Prep makes success so much more likely.

Which is why I chose “Preparing to Succeed” as this week’s podcast topic.

Facing the Truth of Your Life

268: Facing the Truth of Your Life

Who you are currently being in the world is a culmination of the things you have practiced so many times you have quite literally become those things.

Clients will often say, “that’s just the way I am” as if they are bound to that way of being forever.

Not true!

If your practices to this point in your life shaped your current state of being, new practices can develop you into a new state.

To develop new practices, however, you are going to have to face the truth of your current practices (minus the blame, shame, and judgment).

In this episode of the Grace & Grit podcast, I am sharing a few tips and tricks on how to do just that.
