I was blown away this week by the responses of women to my question about the top 3 struggles that you experience on a daily basis and wish you didn’t.

First of all I need to let you know — whether you answered that question to me via email or are answering it in your head right now: 


Feeling some self-doubt or the need for approval? Not Alone.

Struggling to get it all done? Or like you barely have the time to read this whole email much less tackle THE LIST? 

Girl, you are definitely NOT ALONE on that one.

Dissatisfied or frustrated in your work or that you don’t have your dream job? NOT ALONE.

Feeling like you are too smart, have way too many credentials (or are too old) to still be hounded by insecurities and inner static? NOT ALONE.

Guilty about missing that workout? Or guilty about not being with your kids? Or not getting enough done at work? SO NOT ALONE

Feeling overwhelmed by the freaking intensity of seeing children separated from their parents at the border and swinging wide between pissed off and a big emotional heap? 

Oh, my friend. NOT ALONE

Which is why I am super excited to tell you about my upcoming Free Video Class.

How to Flourish and Find Freedom from Self-Criticism and a Never Ending To-Do List (at work AND home).

Saturday June 30th at, 12PM Eastern/11AM Central/9 AM Pacific

You are Not CRAZY, you are just growing!

In fact if we could somehow convert the INCREDIBLE amount of inner criticism, self-doubt, and guilt women feel into electricity – that would be it for fossil fuels.

We could light up the planet if we could only redirect the inner critique and static.

And I think we can. 

So lets clear house.

Lets tell some BIG truth.

Let’s kick to the curb some of those internalized voices from our status-obsessed culture to create a life that YOU love.

*the irony being that doing this is also going to free your most potent contributions in your work, creativity, and relationships.

REGISTER NOW (go ahead and do it before you forget)

and enjoy this weekend a bit lighter.

And the next time you find yourself overwhelmed or worse yet judging yourself for not having it all together — remember you are not alone. And not only are you not alone, you were made to flourish.

Last week I launched my podcast! You can listen to the first episode here which is about the one question you can ask to pop out of overwhelm. I also share the behind the scenes details of our family transition from Nicaragua to North Carolina for the summer.

And am excited to share with you that I am going to be donating 50 percent of the proceeds from the PRINT version of The Flourish Formula to Nicaraguan nonprofits! More soon. Coming out THIS MONTH, just in time for summer reading! Stay tuned.
