“My brother introduced me to coaching and I fell in love immediately. Because, it was like all the big juicy questions that I had been thinking about my whole life I now got to sit down on purpose with someone and ask things like ‘What do you want? Who are you being? What’s important to you?’” (03:44)
“It’s [Rockstar Camp] a leadership development program that’s unraveling the shame that we have around being seen and heard. It’s unraveling the conditioning we have that I can’t do something unless I do it perfectly.” (12:21)
“I believe that being an entrepreneur and running a business is the most intense personal growth path you could possibly choose.” (14:54)
“One of the reasons I started building Rockstar Camp is because, as I was teaching coaches how to build a business, the people who were succeeding were the people that were willing to be seen and heard in public.” (18:37)
“Feminine energy is about connection, pleasure, intuition. It’s about outrageousness. It’s about fun. It’s non-linear. It’s non-logical.” (20:02)
“For me, it’s [Zen Money] the being and the doing, which is what coaching is all about. And so, I have to be in a right frame of mind and a right frame of being in order to do the things that are required.” (25:46)
“It’s being in an empowered state of mind and state of being so that I am more powerful than my money. I’m in control of my money. My money’s not controlling me. That’s Zen Money.” (26:54)
