In fact, I can have both. I can have a baby, I can have maternity leave, and I can have a business all at the same time, because that is one level of success that you reach when you realize that you don’t have to choose either or, but with a little creativity that you can have both.
Welcome to the first official episode of our Season of Abundance! Today I felt like it was important to talk about something that has actually come up a lot in my conversations with clients and conversations with the women that are in the mastermind that I am a part of.
Well, you might have noticed, but we have a new name around here! We have closed the chapter on Legally Aligned and opened a new one. Today I want to tell you a little bit about why we did it.
Well, wouldn't it be nice if we could do it all? But instead, since we know we can't, let's consider the value in finding the right people to contribute to our business to help it grow. If you're new here or you have been listening from the beginning, Lindsey and I...

We are going to dive into the journey, systems, and partnerships that come with moving into full-time blogging, and with no one better to join in on the conversation than Sakura!
Today is simply an honest conversation from business owner to business owner. How we run our businesses, and the processes we create to onboard and off-board our clients is extremely unique to us. But, finding efficiencies and sharing resources has never compromised that right?
While asking for help may not be our strong suit, in business we all need a little help sometimes. It’s impossible to be an expert in marketing, accounting, legal, and everything else you need to keep your business running and flourishing.
With our wedding day 1 month from today, November 21, marriage is on my mind. For those of you that are not familiar with my decision to leave corporate law to start my own law firm, it was not a solo decision.
In the world of entrepreneurship “partner” has been reserved for business partners before the explosion of influencer and affiliate marketing.
Since the launch of this podcast, I have been waiting for this conversation and I’m proud to say that the timing finally feels just right. My dear friend Lindsay Schwartz joined in on the conversation to-do what she does best and equip us to create our next launch strategy.
To be totally honest, I truly did enjoy wedding planning. Our families and friends are incredibly supportive, plus many of our vendors started out as cherished clients/friends. I trusted the process and I had a vision of the “perfect wedding day.”

Not only do we get the perspective of Katie and how she helps businesses through her work as a virtual assistant. She specializes in admin, support, podcasts, management, and web design.
Planning a wedding during COVID has tested our patience, vision, and plans, but though it all our Vendors continue to amaze us. I have been sharing a few of our vendors over the past few months, but today I wanted to put them all into a single blog post because it’s with their grace and understanding we were able to move both our location and date and pull off a wedding that is a beautiful as I imagined and safe for our loved ones.
I shared with you in past episodes that I am a huge advocate for systems in business. I want to share one with you today that has become a staple in my daily routine. I use Dubsado to manage all of my clients, within my firm, Guide My Business and for my one-on-one coaching services with female attorneys.
Let’s be honest as entrepreneurs have a common trait… we tend to have trouble delegating. Well, that’s until we are ready to get out of our own way and serious about our financial goals.
Three years ago I sat down for coffee with today’s guest when her business was still running out of her apartment. Now years of business experience and incredible growth later we get to hear from Sam Abrahart, CEO of The Mayfair Group! In this episode, Sam shares some invaluable insight into the importance of having a mission-driven business, creating a culture where everyone feels valued, and providing REAL mentorship for women through their internship program (where interns NEVER have to run for coffee!)

Let’s talk about the art of getting organized in our desktops and computers. Since our lives revolve around what is on our computer it sounds like it’s about time to get organized, am I right?!
Each of us have our own financial goals, and while I believe in abundance, today’s topic is focused on creating a financial plan. With that being said, I want to provide you with a perspective and steps on how to visualize, create and manifest a financial plan for yourself or your business!
Has knowing that you were not the “first” ever prevented you from creating an offering? If you are silently admitting that you have held back from pursuing a beautiful idea die because its already being done, you are not alone. If you read my post about the lessons I...
I am sure that you are expecting this, but my number one tip for what you should have in place before hiring interns is an Internship Agreement. True story time: Yesterday (no exaggeration) a client sent me an email in a panic because a seasonal intern had submitted...
As you may know, I am a dedicated follower of my schedule and I rarely stray from it. But, if I can be completely honest with you, after leaving my corporate job, I had to reinvent the way that I worked. Not only for productivity, but to embrace the perks of being my own boss, and hold myself accountable to taking advantage of those perks.
The first time my team suggested a podcast in 2019 I laughed. Followed by “That’s a hard no.” I had no intention of reconsidering the idea or much less changing my mind. I also had no clue what 2020 had in store for the world. Cue a change of perspective.
Allee Williams who has been a friend, counselor, and business consultant from the beginning, is here to answer that question with an abundance of easy steps to transition from serving your customers for free to monetizing from the value you provide.

There will come a point in all of our lives where we simply cannot do it all by ourselves. Especially in our businesses. That is where outsourcing is introduced as our saving grace.
While you may want to bring this relationship to a close as quickly as possible, keep in mind that ending a relationship should be treated as purposefully as starting one. Timing and delivery can be everything.
If you know me, you know I am a big believer in the power of systems in our business and how that makes room for our lives. From increasing efficiency and productivity to protecting the time of my clients, systems have changed the way I manage my business.
Success is an innately personal journey guided by the seasons of life. Do not shy away from your pursuit of success, financial abundance or feel shame in contentment.
Sage reminds us that “when you start authentically speaking about yourself and your business it’s amazing how quickly you can start connecting with people through your business on a genuine level.”
My niche is empowering small business owners to protect themselves and their business in every aspect. Did I mention, that can also save you time and the hassle to go great lengths to get credit for the work you created?!
