Today I wanted to share 7 Books that are EASILY Digestible and changed my life....
First I want to start off by saying that I am a SLOW reader and I always have been. For the longest time, I was embarrassed by this. I had friends cranking through a few books a week and I just could NOT keep up.
I decided to give myself permission to read as SLOW, as I want so I can really understand and absorb each book.
These books were all EASY to read, digestible, and I was able to actually take action after them, which is something I feel like is super important.
You can READ get all the advice you want but it's important to actually implement it.
Also I visited the Ryan Holiday Book Store this weekend! It was so damn cute, located in a small town, and he had notes on certain books that explained why he loved them so much! And it inspired me to make this
I WILL be reading this multiple times. It's a great book on self sabotage it gives you reasons for WHY you feel...
Happy Halloween, Crew!
Most of you are aware of this, but Halloween is literally my favorite holiday. I love the idea of dressing up and not being so serious for a full week (yes, I celebrate all week).
This week I was:
As much as I LOVE Halloween, to be honest, historically, October hasn't been the best month for me. It always seems to be filled with drama, breakups, deaths, moving...
You ever have that month that you are kinda holding on and just waiting for something bad to happen because, well, it always does. That's this month for me. What's interesting is that things actually were going good, but my body was FILLED with anxiety, anticipating the worst.
Last year, despite IG pictures that seemed happy, I felt super alone, was going through a breakup, and I was struggling to find my place when I was living in Colorado.
Yes... you heard that right. I was sitting outside at a cafe, minding my own business, doing some work and all of the sudden I felt a drip drip on my head and shirt.
I looked up, and there was literally just ONE bird sitting on a ledge above my head. He KNEW what he was doing.
I posted about this and so many people messaged me saying, "it's good luck" and this got me thinking. Why? Why is it good luck?
What if it is just making light of a seemingly bad situation?
If we can say that good luck comes for a bird pooping on your head, why not take that same perspective when other bad things happen in life?
"The primary reason that many cultures believe that it's good luck to have a bird poop on you, is because the chance of this happening is fairly rare. In fact, it's about as rare as a win in the lottery. Therefore, many people who get pooped on, immediately go and buy a lottery ticket.
It has been calculated that in the USA, the chance of getting pooped on...
It's been a busy few weeks. I had a week home in Austin and then I got asked to speak at a men's group in Saint George, Utah.
This was my first paid speaking gig since the pandemic. I was so damn excited to get on stage, share my story and provide value to a group of over 60 men.
I flew to Vegas and had to be driven 2 hours to Utah, passing 3 time zones! (Nevada, Arizona then Utah.)
When I arrived, the guys where all doing ice baths and activities to work on themselves to make them better men/humans.
We then got to the house where I would be speaking.
I was definitely nervous, even though I was prepared. And when I got up there, my mouth immediately became dry as I started the talk.
I started off with some questions and then lead into talking about my story on how I became an "accidental ninja"
I honestly didn't even know what the show Ninja Warrior was when I tried out, I just had someone pushing me to try out because they had this insane...
Today I wanted to take a moment to chat about my mom's hospitalization.
Last week I went off to New York City. I had this trip planned for over a month a month. The plan was to reconnect, explore the city and go to tan event called Strong New York.
A week before going, I got the phone call nobody ever wants to get.
I had noticed that my mom was not answering me much during one of her favorite days, her birthday.
It was strange, so I talked to my stepdad and he informed me that she had been hospitalized.
You see... my mom is an amazing woman.
She is a force. On top of that, she is ALWAYS checking in on me and the rest of the family.
She's 63 years old, and a perfectionist who literally puts 110% into everything she does.
I have really been enjoying working closely with a select group of women. I am super proud of my client, Aimee. After not working out in awhile, we got her back in the grove of hitting 5 workouts a week, starting back to the basics, mastering them, getting decent schedule down.
She was ON A ROLL… until well, life happened. Her cat went missing, and she finally found him, (I can relate this so much since I used to have an outdoor cat.)
Because of this, her schedule got a bit messed up. She wasn’t able to get her workout in early like she had wanted. Instead of beating herself up about it and stressing, she simply just moved her workout to a different time that day, from the normal 7am to 1:30pm.
Not only did she make the time, she also realize how damn good it felt to take her mind off all the stress and get movement in.
It’s in this moment as I read her messages and schedule her workouts for next week that you can SEE exactly why movement isn’t just about...
I’m super excited to welcome one of my dearest friends, Jess Glazer on the show! Jess is a business coach, mentor, speaker, and philanthropist. A former school teacher and personal trainer, Jess turned her side hustle into a multiple 7-figure business, and she helps others do the same. She teaches her clients how to extract what they know and their lived experience and turn it into courses, programs, and content to help the world.
In this episode, Jess and I are going to talk about the importance of mindset and how to shift your mindset into a place of abundance.
Mindset is a muscle, like anything else. We really do need to flex it and work on it every single day. You’ll have days where you feel stronger, and you’ll have days that you feel weaker, and it’s important to get support through your mindset journey.

Sometimes we think things are going great. And then something happens that completely shakes it. It might be super minor, it might be larger scale. But after we feel stuck, in our heads and we just can’t seem to get to feeling like ourselves again. This has happened to me numerous times, especially in dating. I never fully knew why specific events triggered me so badly. But I did realize a pattern. Some took me longer to get over than others, but as I started using this “tool kit” , believe it or not, each time something happened it took less time for me to recover. I still felt very similar feelings but now I was able to handle it, grow and move on. So let’s go through the tool kit on things I have learned through my journey.
I clearly remember being so triggered a year ago. I was excited about dating this guy, we went on weekly dates, he was a gentleman, held doors open for me, planned...
