Episode 3: About money, with Ashley Feinstein Gerstley

I was thrilled (and terrified, and all the things) to talk to my friend and money coach Ashley Feinstein Gerstley, founder of the Fiscal Femme, for Episode 3 of the podcast. Money is one of my greatest areas of challenge, and over the past three years Ashley has helped me do some very raw, deep, honest work around it. So in this episode, I come clean about how I’ve behaved in the past and we talk about how to come into right relationship and live your truth with your money. Ashley also...

Become a founding member of the Speak Your Truth Community! πŸ’«

Last week I announced that I'm starting the "How To Speak Your Truth" podcast, and I was overwhelmed with the supportive and amazing response. I am so grateful, thank you!! And most importantly, I am so honored to be bringing forth these conversations about speaking our truth.

As a voice coach, I believe the deepest extension of working on our voice is being able to share our truth. It's freakin' hard work, but it's so worth it. Because when we live fully in our...

I'm starting a podcast! πŸŽ™πŸ˜

speak your truth May 16, 2019

Have you ever been totally nervous to share something? Because I am today! I had all the excuses about why I should just send another warm up video in my weekly newsletter and save this announcement for next week/next month/next year.

But then I realized that I have a super unique opportunity. Because I can actually model the content of my new project at the same time as I share my news.

I’m going to use the framework from my “How To Speak Your...

So this picture may be a bit blurry, but I'm still so excited about it because it's from the other day when I was directing a music video!!

I know, say what?!

I actually spent 5 years of my early career primarily as a theatre and film director, but this was totally new for me. So why was I directing a music video? Because of Ashley. (She's the one with her hair up in the lower left-hand corner of the pic).

Ashley’s been my client for over a year....

Uncategorized Mar 07, 2019

Raise your hand if you've ever felt nervous recording yourself on camera. ‍

If you fear or avoid being on video, you're certainly not alone in your resistance. A large majority of people experience the whole public-speaking-is-scarier-than-death thing. But that’s not an excuse... if you've got a fire in your belly to share a message with the world, you're going to need to 'put yourself out there.'

Maybe you want to create the online business you've...

How To Speak Your Truth: The Conclusion

speak your truth Jan 31, 2019

Here it is, the Conclusion video of the How To Speak Your Truth mini-course!

I'm going full-on philosophical with you today in this final video of the course (the thoughts I'm sharing are specifically derived from Vedic philosophy). I know that what I'm saying is controversial, so see if you agree...

My argument is that though there may be a sort of absolute "Truth" (with a capital T) embedded in our universe, we as individuals don't get to decide what that is. The...
