It’s FALL! The days are growing shorter. The air is getting colder. The leaves are starting to change colors and fall from their branches. The darkness is coming. The earth will go to sleep soon.

This is such a powerful time of year. It’s harvest season.

Time to celebrate. Time to reflect on what you’ve created and nourished. Time to honor the MANY lessons you’ve learned. Time to let certain things DIE that are truly over. You must allow certain ways of being to DIE within you to make space for the the NEW seeds that will grow into the next year’s harvest. 

We have just about 3 months left of 2018. Let’s hunker down and focus on what transformation you are ready to experience AND lead your people through.

Know this: Transformation is all about navigating TRANSITION.

That’s what this episode of GET GUTSY is dedicated to.

Sep 12, 2018

First off, I’m back! I’ve missed you.

Secondly, do I have an amazing episode for you!

A little backstory >> Over the last decade of mothering and growing my business, I had gotten really lazy with exercise.

EVERYTHING else seemed to take priority over exercise.

Yes, I had my yoga classes that I loved, but when life got full (which is like, always!) I tended to get to 1 – 2 classes a week. I’d fit some hikes in here and there and call it a day.

I thought this was the way it had to be until my kids get older and/or my work life slows down.

Well 2 months ago, I was called to make a change. Because I wasn’t feeling as optimized as I wanted to. I felt sluggish. And not as strong as I want to feel.

So I decided to make a fitness a priority no matter how much was happening in my life.

But I needed a coach and a program to get me on the right track. I needed a clear-cut plan to follow that takes out all of the guesswork. And I wanted workouts that I could mostly do at home or in my neighborhood.

Enter: AMANDA TRESS and the FASTer Way to Fat Loss.

This woman and her nutrition and fitness program have changed my life for the better.

So I just had to invite her onto the show today to learn more about how she has created a true wellness revolution. Plus, I just wanted to get to know her better. And Amanda held nothing back!

Tune in to hear:

  • What a doctor told Amanda as a teenager that she refused to believe
  • How the fitness industry chooses you
  • How she transitioned from training clients individually to training groups of women to scaling virtual fitness bootcamp groups
  • The power of Intermittent Fasting (and why she was willing to face criticism for making this strategy a core component of her FASTer Way to Fat Loss program)
  • The ways Amanda leveraged live video to grow her audience and sales
  • Amanda’s view on the most powerful marketing tool available (are you utilizing this effectively in your business?)
  • The power of accountability
  • What makes the FASTer Way to Fat Loss so unique and so effective (I’m sharing my personal results from round 1 of the program!) and how you can join us for the next round of this program
  • Amanda’s biggest lessons learned this year as she has grown her business into multi-millions of dollars in revenue

I left my successful corporate career in New York City more than 10 years ago after yoga teacher training (went from 6 figures to 0 figures overnight!) to follow the path to happiness because I was tired of bitching about my job and feeling like shit.

Listening to my inner voice was liberating and terrifying all at the same time. The conventional path seemed much more "normal" and popular ... yet my soul was taking me in another direction.

I knew I wanted to help women break free from jobs + lifestyles that robbed them of their joy and freedom.

I found initial success in building my business by working with fantastic coaches and joining masterminds with other serious business owners. And I did this while having babies with my husband and raising our children while growing my business on a very part-time schedule.

But even though my business looked good on the outside, I still had this dull ache on the inside. Because I was hiding out from my true nature. And I felt a tremendous amount of anxiety and stress as an entrepreneur. And this was spilling over into my personal life.

And then I decided to learn from GABBY BERNSTEIN.

I had heard of her for YEARS, but honestly was triggered by her because she was doing and saying so much of what I wanted to be doing and saying! She was featured in the New York Times, writing bestselling books, being interviewed by Oprah, giving talks to big audiences. All of the things!

Finally I heard SPIRIT loud and clear say to me: LEARN FROM HER.

And so I did! I went to her retreat at Kripalu with my best friend (cried my eyes out feeling so much love in that room + then felt so much freedom from feeling my feelings!) ... and immediately signed up for Gabby's Spirit Junkie Masterclass training. Completed that and then signed up for her Level 2 training.

I've been on a roll ever since doing this work and sharing this work with my coaching clients. My business keeps growing ... and I'm working "less" than I ever have ... and doing MORE of what lights me up.

I'm living a life beyond my wildest dreams.

Because of our work together, my life is full of magic. I manifest the most amazing wins, opportunities and people in my life.

Now it's your turn! I am sooooo excited to invite you to come hang out with me and Gabby as you feel the power of saying yes to cashing in on your calling as a SPIRIT JUNKIE.

We’re going DEEP!

Last week was a doozy.

Not only did we hear the news about Kate Spade’s death by suicide on Tuesday, but on Friday we heard about Anthony Bourdain’s suicide.

Fuck. So much pain.

Kate and Anthony had it “all” it would seem. Success. Career. Money. Travel. Options. Family. Celebrity.

So what happened?

A big conversation about mental health and depression is now happening, and that’s a good thing.

Because success is a nuanced road.

Nobody gets out of here alive.

The question is … what will you do with the time you’ve been given? And are you willing to get help on your journey?

Let’s be real with each other.

That’s what this SOLO episode of GET GUTSY is dedicated to.

What do you want?

In your work?

In your relationships?

In your body?

In your mind?

In your soul?

Be real.

If you can’t be honest with yourself, who can you be real with?

I have found that so many women are living on the periphery of the truth. They’ve got one foot in. One foot out.

When it comes to the sacred work you are here to create and contribute to the world, this lack of commitment will crush you. And crush your business.

You can’t be soft here.

You can’t be a dabbler.

You can’t aspire to be average.

You can’t be wishy washy.

You’ve got to take a position and go after it like your life depends on it.

You’ve got to step into your GENIUS.

This, my love, is the power of the FULL MOON.

So to help you harness this FULL MOON ENERGY we are in right now, I have a few tips for you on this SOLO episode of GET GUTSY. And I also REVEAL something that I’ve been working on for many moons. So excited to share with you!

May 23, 2018

It was the fall of 2009 when I realized my new-ish coaching business wasn’t going to make it with the model I had been taught in coaching school. I was a new mom who didn’t want to work a full-time schedule, but still had big dreams to help my tribe of women. I wanted to figure out this online business world, but needed a guide, fast.

Enter ALI BROWN. This woman helped me save my business. I directly credit her mentorship with getting me to where I am today, a multiple-six-figure business owner serving clients all over the world (plus, I’m a mom of 3, still not working a full-time schedule!).

So you can imagine how PSYCHED I am to share Ali’s brilliance with you today. I call her the OG (Original Goddess) of the industry. She was the woman who paved the way for so many of us here today.

And in true Ali fashion, she made a bold move a few years ago when she made a sharp right turn and completely redesigned her business and is enjoying extraordinary results.

Why did she do it? What lessons does she have to share? Where is this industry headed?

Tune in because she shares all on this episode of Get Gutsy.

May 15, 2018

It's easy to get lost in life. It's easy to follow the crowd. It's so easy to get trapped in a life you *thought* you wanted only to realize after you get it, that this ain't it! It's even easier to silence your voice and think that your needs don't truly matter.

In our quest to "prove ourselves," it's easy to push against our bodies, our intuition, our values, our natural rhythms.

This is not a sustainable approach to life, love, health, relationships or your career.

As women, we are designed to flow with the moon, but so many women have forgotten ... we push, push, push and try to operate in a structure that robs us of our power.            

We burn out. We get sick. We disconnect from our body and our truth and the work that is ours to create and contribute.          

The old ways of WORKING (not listening to your body, pushing, forcing or trying to control outcomes) do NOT work anymore (let's be honest - they really never did!). You’re on social media A LOT yet feel lonely.  

It’s noisier than ever. The advice you receive - from so many sources - contradicts itself. You’re more confused than ever. Some days your fear consumes you and you simply want to crawl under your blanket and hide.   

Do you feel this too?  

There is a better way ...

Join me and Christine Gutierrez for this real and raw conversation about what it means to unleash your WILD WOMAN MAGIC and how YOU can join us at our 1-day retreat in New York City where we will dive deep together.

Areas we touch on:

  • What psychology really is
  • Trauma and addiction
  • Healing is messy
  • What does your body really need?
  • A veil is being lifted + layers are being peeled away
  • Be mindful of biases
  • Go deeper into your leadership

About Our Guest:

Christine Gutierrez, MHC, is a Latina psychotherapist, love addiction expert, life coach and expert in trauma, abuse, & self-esteem. Christine’s mission is to empower as many people as possible to heal their pain and own their worth.

2018 is well underway. HOW ARE YOU DOING? HOW ARE YOU FEELING?

What I really want to ask you is ... are you FULLY telling the TRUTH?

This question can feel S-C-A-R-Y and a bit triggerish.

Don't be afraid.

To celebrate the FULL BLUE MOON, I share some tips to help you unleash your wise, wildish nature to claim your stories, truth and soul voice (it is THE WAY to get what you want).

I'll also help you prepare to bask in the glow of this magical lunar phase. The FULL MOON IN LEO is all about being SEEN, being VISIBLE + being HEARD.



Absolute love,

  • Why she decided to close her lucrative copywriting agency and start fresh, even though on paper it’s totally irrational
