How to turn that idea of yours into a reality


Hey friend,

Every single day this week I’ve done one life-changing thingThis one thing has made such an awesome impact on both my business and life. It has given me a sense of companionship, forced me to see things from other perspectives, AND it’s encouraged me to venture outside of my comfort zone. (can you tell I’m excited?)

What is this magical thing I’ve done daily this week? 

I’m so glad you asked 😉 Well … it’s Skype calls. And not just any Skype calls – but Skype calls with interesting people from around the world who, like me, run their own businesses, and love every second of it. 

Yesterday afternoon I had the pleasure of speaking to Vicky Lyashenko of and she gave me some of the BEST advice I ever could have asked for. To find out what her advice for me was, and how I decided to put it into action, you’re gonna have to watch this video:

I know that whoever you are, sitting there, reading these words of mine – you have an idea. Maybe it’s a big, grand idea that feels far too huge to ever be taken seriously. Maybe it’s a small idea that you’ve had for a while, but you’ve been putting it off because you’re not entirely sure of how to push it forward. Whatever it is – this is a sign to MAKE IT HAPPEN. No matter what excuses you’ve been feeding yourself as to why you can’t do it yet – just ignore them and push on. Get it done, one small step at a time!

Thank you, February: A Recap

Ever reach the end of the month, and wonder where it went, and how it flew by so quickly?

Ummmm … yes. Haven’t we all?

And … it sucks.

Because when you think about the last 28 days of February, it’s all a blur. ESPECIALLY as a busy entrepreneur.

So, I decided to do a little bit of investigation. Because – well, why not?

Here’s what I’m proud of this February: 















And … WHOA! There you have it.

The artist within …


Back in the day, I used to be a photographer. It’s true. I would take image after image of the beauty around me, adding my own unique flair, doing my best to present the world with a piece of art that would make a difference, that would make someone better for having seen it.

Today, life isn’t too different. I may no long be a photographer, but I’m still out to create art that makes a difference, that aims to make someone better for having been a part of it.

It’s crazy.

Only the tools I use are different. The rest is all the same.

I just spent months crafting a premium product for my business : The School of Killer Impressions.

And it was an artistic process – from what to name the program, to which topics should be covered (and in what order), to figuring out the best way to present the information, to create the best learning experience as you possibly can.

I created The School of Killer Impressions with the same thought and detail that I create a photograph.  With love, with thought, with care, and with creativity.

When I sit back and look at my end product, I’m pretty damn proud. I know that this is going to change lives. I know that this is going to make a difference. I know that I’m onto something .

But do you want to know the best part? After all of these months of planning and creation of the product, it’s finally live. It’s actually happening.

There is an amazing group of students who are experiencing this creation of mine. And, honestly? It’s the most exciting thing for me.

These people mean so much more to me than they know, because they are gifting me my first chance of seeing my baby “born”.

It’s wonderful to see an idea become reality.

And maybe that’s the difference. With my photographs, everything was so very … instant. Idea. Planning. Execution. Enjoy… all within a few days of each other.

The School of Killer Impressions has been so different. I poured months into creating it, and the whole time I had zero proof that it would sell or not.  I just had a passion to teach, and a hunch.

And here I am. With my very first class of passionate students.

And the feeling? It’s absolutely incredible.

To everyone who is a part of the very first round of The School of Killer Impressions, I so appreciate having you on board – each and every single one of you have blown me away with your talent, skill, passion, and dedication to make your dreams a reality. You inspire me. And you are exactly who this course is for.  Thank you.

For everyone who reads this blog, and is a part of my journey – I love having you on board. Thank you for sharing this with me.

With love,


Scholarship Winners – The School of Killer Impressions 2014


You know the days when, instead of feeling down about how much farther you have to go, you feel proud about how far you’ve come? That’s today for me.

Today I had the pleasure of sifting through all of the Scholarship entries for The School of Killer Impressions, and I have to tell you – this was one of the best experiences in my business, because for once, instead of being the one making the video, I was the one watching the video. It’s amazing that I’ve been able to build a community of women who are so inspiring to me, and so similar to me – it has inspired me so much to pour even more of my heart and soul into what I do.

So to every single person who entered this scholarship – thank you for sharing yourself with me. You are not forgotten, and I hope from the depths of my soul that you will still join us for The School of Killer Impressions, because an addition like YOU to the group would be invaluable for everyone involved.

Even though this was one of the best experiences in my business so far, it was also one of the most difficult decisions I’ve ever had to make. I so badly wanted to scream, “YES, YOU’RE IN!” to each and every single candidate, because they all deserved it.

All of these videos were full of so much heart, so much passion, so much dedication and LOVE. It felt nearly impossible to choose the winner, so instead of choosing ONE winner, I decided to choose THREE winners!

The winners of The School of Killer Impressions Scholarship 2014 are:

Alessandra Migliorini
Nina Médard
Clarissa Rodriguez

Aaaaaahhh! Congratulations to these three winners, please send an email to so that I can be sure to have your correct email address for The School of Killer Impressions which starts on Monday!

To everyone else who entered, but didn’t win – it was such an honor to get to know you better, and I really hope you are still able to join us for The School of Killer Impressions.

Remember – today is the LAST DAY to enroll – and with our 4 month payment plan, there’s just no reason not to!
