Let's jump right in...


Who/What are you watching or listening to right now? What has you interested in them/it?


I love to go for walks in nature with my pup Nugget, we live right by a lake and it is a special place for us both. I also love to host gatherings! So I will often have a house full of incredible world changing women aka my beautiful friends over and we will share delicious food while also sharing our souls, our desires, our intentions and supporting each other as we rise! My favourite thing to do normally is travel and experience new places and people, I love learning about new cultures and being fully present with the beauties I am experiencing. I also love to hot tub under the stars and have beautiful convos with my 3 boys and going on adventures with them lights me up!

What was your first business and why did you start it?


My first business was speaking and training in schools on values for kids! I delivered over 800 speeches in 5 years to mostly elementary schools and loved every minute of it! I started it because I was working in the schools at the time with special needs children and had my own young children and felt like I had a lot I could share to really make a difference while making learning about important life skills and values FUN for kids!



What book changed or greatly influenced your life and why?


Ahhh, I have so many favourites but the one that is tattered and torn because it has been with me around the world and loved almost daily for years and is sitting on my night stand is, Journey to the Heart by Melody Beattie. What I love is that every morning I just open intuitively to a page and her words always seem to be the exact thing I need to hear, it has become a part of my morning rituals.



What is your favourite quote? Why?


"Out of suffering have emerged the strongest souls; the most massive characters are seared with scars." - Khalil Gibran


My oldest brother had this tattooed on his arm and after his sudden passing I found so much comfort in these words. He lived a great life and left a legacy of love but also had much suffering throughout his short time here. I found myself after this loss experiencing many more heartbreaking moments while still grieving and I have this quote now hanging on my wall in my bedroom to remind me that these moments are only making me stronger and reminding me who I truly am.



What's the scariest thing you've ever done in your business?


After many personal losses I stepped back from my business and basically let it all go to focus solely on my healing journey. This was terrifying because I was now a new single mom and my business felt like the one thing I could count on but I needed to take a pause and find myself again. So I honoured that time even though it was scary wondering if I would be able to create the success again.


I went from $500,000 revenue in my business a year to $30,000, that was my biggest leap of faith. But once I was ready I pivoted, launched a new business model and focus and rebuilt to $250,000 revenue the next year while still honouring a slower pace so that I could continue to heal and do the inner work my soul was craving! I learnt that even if I burn it all to the ground I will be able to rebuild and create something out of nothing, because that is what we do as entrepreneurs!


We are innovators, we are resilient, we are creators and we are oh so powerful! I am grateful I took that time to honour my soul and nurture my broken heart and in that I found a new fire, a new belief, a new work I was ready to birth into the world!



What has been the biggest mindset shift you've had since you started your business(es)?


In the year that my business was on pause I found myself still speaking around the world with all expense paid trips to Paris, England, Spain, Cancun, New York City and all over the USA. I had the most fun and felt the wealthiest I ever had felt making the least amount in my business. This shifted my belief that money was the means to me feeling and living a wealthy life. I released the attachments I had to money and healed my money relationship. This brought me to a place of trust and ease within my business where I no longer was striving for the infamous 7-figures but instead was setting the intention that I would experience feelings of wealth, overflow, joy, expansion, adventure, pleasure, play through my business. And the money is now just a byproduct of the alignment to my desires!



What excites you right now - outside of your business?


I am excited to take dance lessons! I have always loved music and dancing, I even taught Zumba years ago. But I am going to sign up for private salsa lessons and take my latin dancing to the next level... I am going to be shaking my booty but while following someone's lead! (that will be new for me;))



What is the legacy that you're creating?


I am living my WHY, I want to show other women how to defy the odds, to be a new statistic of women rising, women succeeding, single moms being so wealthy they set their grandkids and great grandkids up for success. Showing all that come after them a new way of being, living, loving and leading. Where all parts of them are welcome, all aspects of who they are are seen, loved and celebrated because they no longer look to anyone outside of themselves for approval, love or validation that comes when they just know, they know they are love, they are truth, they are power. This is my why.


To create Financial Independence and Generational Wealth in my own life to show other women and single moms (especially) the way to LEGACY Money which goes beyond what is in your bank account, it is about experiences, lessons, impact, and possibilities. You are now the way shower for all who are blessed to be in your world, present, past and future! I am here to show you the way to YOUR Legacy - the way to re-claiming your power which will sustain you through any struggle or setback.


The way to standing so fully in your truth that no lie will shake your core. The way to unlimited belief in the life you were sent here to create that is beyond what you can possibly even imagine in this moment. My life is my mission. My life is my WHY. My life is my message. My life is my LEGACY… I am a LIVING LEGACY, living out each day, with each breath the legacy I am creating in this moment and for generations to come.



Favourite time of year? Why?


Springtime, all the blossoms, the fresh crisp air, the birth of something new, the sunshine beaming all around me. It is such a welcome season after a long cold winter. This is such a symbol for the seasons of life and I cherish the springtime moments in my own life too!



Who/What's making you belly laugh right now?


I often watch Brooklyn 99 with my teenage boys and love laughing with them though my youngest usually needs to back it up and play it again because I am laughing so loud I miss the next punchline!



What big, wonderful, cannot-wait-until-it-happens goal are you working toward or dreaming of right now?


I have always wanted to take my boys to Africa because when they were 9, 7, 3 years old they raised money to build a school in Kenya. I had given them a toonie (I am Canadian) and told them to use their creativity and talents to turn it into more for charity. When I asked where they wanted to donate the money they created and they said to build a school I thought it would take us years to raise $9000. But in just 1 year these boys raised $11,000 through lemonade stands, magic shows, public speaking in schools and bottle drives! I would love to take them there to see the school they helped build 11 years ago and give back more to the community.



When overwhelm creeps in, what is your go-to solution to moving beyond it?


I love getting into my body through dance and movement, EFT and breathwork. I know that if I can get into my body that will get me out of my mind and into the present moment where I can let go of all the fears and doubts and just BE!



Best business advice you've ever received? Did you follow it when you first heard it? Tell us about it...


Create it before you think you are ready. I don't know who or where I heard it but I found the courage to launch my very first online course without a website or sales page and just a post and a PayPal link. I had the outline of the course and that was it but I launched anyways and had 11 women sign up for my 6 week course and paid me $250 each which had me SO over the moon excited that someone would PAY me online for a course I created! That same course went on to make me over $400,000 in the coming years and became the foundation to all my other programs, events, retreats and opportunities to speak! I am so grateful I launched before I thought I was ready or had my course even done!



What do you have going on in your business or coming up soon?


I am launching my own work again for the first time since I burned it all down 3.5 years ago because I was behind the scenes helping others launch their work into the world. But now I am ready to step back out there and share what I have learned and support others in creating wealth on their terms and launching the #LUXEway because it is time for us all to add more pleasure and play to our businesses! I am running a 5 day FREE series, $10K Course Creation to help people create and be ready to launch their own course quick and dirty, like I did with my first one! I know this will propel them into a powerful energy of momentum! And then I will be sharing my signature work, LUXE Launching where we will dive into the energetics of money, the LUXE Manifestation Method and the Embodied LUXE Launching Method. I will support you in tapping out the fears, doubts and frustrations that can come with a launch through EFT so you can release the stories holding you back from going bigger in your business. And we will also get into the strategy of launching your programs with pleasure and play and then add on launching with partners so you can amplify your impact and income!
