Mostly unpacked, decorated, and praising the lord for sprawling square footage. Excited to make this space the best one I’ve ever been in πŸ€βœ¨πŸ™πŸΌ I missed the east village more than I ever imagined I would. More soon as soon as I can take a breath.

Before I forget, the special pricing for The Woman You Want to Be ends TONIGHT! I wouldn’t miss this one πŸ˜‰

Life changes when you stop lying to yourself.

I know this because I've lied to myself about many things throughout my life.

I've lied to myself about the kind of love I felt I deserved.

I've lied to myself about the bad habits that held me back.

I've lied to myself about the people I thought I couldn't live without.

I've lied to myself about about the kind of behaviors I was okay with receiving from others.

I've lied to myself about why I should try not to be too much, too powerful, or too real for people.

Lying to yourself is easy because you don't have to get uncomfortable. It feels easy to lie because you don't have to face the sh*t that can be really tough to face. Lying to yourself keeps the people around you comfortable too, and it's never fun to rock the boat.

But here's the thing, babe. The moment you find the courage to say the things you need to say, to make the changes you need to make, and to ruffle the feathers that need to be ruffled, you are free.

Free from pretending. Free from hiding out. Free from dimming your light.

The moment I faced every single thing I lied to myself about is when I truly started to become the woman I want to be. And I am still creating that woman every single day. Through every single truth. And every single moment where I choose myself over an excuse.

Radical honesty is in for 2024. What have you been afraid to say out loud?

Let's make this the year we flip the f*cking script.

Let's make this the year we speak our minds, hone our voice, and do it all with unshakeable confidence.

Let's make this the year we ask for exactly what we want, and stop settling for anything else.

Let's make this the year we stop begging for a seat at a table that never wanted us in the first place, and instead build our own damn house.

The Woman You Want to Be is still open for enrollment at an incredibly low and generous special price.

Join me for 7 days of inspiration, guidance, and direction beginning on January 15th.

Here's to rocking the F out of the last few days of 2023. You've got this. We've got this. Let's do this.


Cheers to the last Friday of 2023 and the last Friday in the jewel box β˜οΈβœ¨πŸ’• It’s been a beautiful year in the clouds but I am so ready to get back to the East Village. I miss my community, I miss my family, and I miss my walk-in closets πŸ˜‚ I will miss this view but nothing compares to a neighborhood vibe in New York City, and I know where mine is. I’ll be sharing my move in my stories all next week! Stay tuned 🍾




The Woman You Want to Be is open for enrollment. And there’s a very generous special price available for a few more days.

It’s time to do things differently. It’s time to become the main character in your life. It’s time to choose yourself. 🩷🩷🩷

New program now enrolling! Woohoo! πŸ’–πŸΎπŸ‘πŸΌ

In every moment of every day, we have a chance to start over. But there is something so undeniably electric about a brand new year. There is a collective energy of hope in the air that reminds us we can be, do, and have anything we want.

At the end of every year, I ask myself, who do I want to be next year?

So I’m going to ask you: who is the woman you want to be in 2024?

This is your invitation to show up differently. To leave the past behind, realize your inherent worth, and boldly become a high-value woman who lives with intention.

To become The Woman You Want To Be.

This is your chance to reset the vibe, decide what you will and will not accept into your life, and fully own what you want.

A chance to design a beautiful life, in all areas. Your business, your bank account, your love life, your friendships, your lifestyle – it all gets to be abundant AF.

There is a version of you who has already arrived.

She’s already done it.

She already has what she wants.

She has already figured it out.

It’s time to bring her into the room.

What would she tell you about what's possible for you?

What would she tell you about your fears?

What would she have you do next?

Your only job is to align with the version of you who gets exactly what she wants. I’m going to help you do just that.

Join me in the 7-day immersive workshop where we will ask the hard questions, release the low vibrational energies, reprogram your thoughts and beliefs that keep you in a place of lack, and set you up for ultimate success, abundance, and happiness in 2024 and beyond.

7 days of inspiration, guidance, and direction. Each day for 7 days, you will receive an email from me with journal prompts, exercises, mantras, and more to help you design your best f*cking life in 2024. AND we'll be doing 3 LIVE calls where I will be coaching you, brainstorming with you, and supporting you through the process.

Enrollment is open at a very special price for a few days only! Link in my bio to grab your spot ✨

Yesterday I crossed 11 million unique downloads on my podcast, Style Your Mind.

11. Million. Downloads. πŸ₯‚

I don't think I have fully grasped the magnitude of what this means. Especially since I record this podcast from my desk in my Manhattan apartment, usually in loungewear, with no fancy studio and no big team.

And that's one of the reasons I'm writing to you today. When I launched this podcast in 2017, I had never listened to another podcast before. I had no plan. I actually really wanted a radio show here in New York City but talk radio had become a thing of the past (I am the queen of nostalgia! I miss late night radio!) and everything was moving over to podcasts.

At first I launched an online radio show called Slay Baby Radio through a small online media company, but I realized I could not reach my international listeners through it. My good friend Noa Shaw suggested I move over to a podcast, and the rest, as they say, is history.

To date I have garnered over 11 million unique downloads. I have listeners in over 180 countries. My show has been featured in Forbes and Oprah Daily. I was featured on a billboard in Times Square last year for National Podcast Day (remember this photo!?)

None of this happened with a manager, a PR team, a marketing campaign, or fancy equipment. It happened because I got curious, I chased my passion, I put myself out there, and I just f*cking went for it.

Whatever dream you are sitting on today, holding back on because you feel like you aren't ready, I urge you to just get started. You truly never know where it will lead you.

You have everything you need. You are not too early. You are not too late. You aren't too old and you are PERFECT right where you are.

To celebrate hitting 11 million downloads, I am opening up sponsorship opportunities for the show! I do this a few times a year to offer women-owned businesses a chance to advertise on Style Your Mind.

Sponsorship packages begin at $2500. If you feel you are an aligned partner, please e-mail me at [email protected] and we'll send you more details.

Thank you so much for all of your love and support! I truly could not do any of this without you. 🀍🀍🀍


I have so many fun live events coming up in NYC! The next reading is happening this coming Monday in the East Village at the and it’s free πŸ₯‚ Then February is packed with more exciting events like our Galentine’s Day bash with πŸ’˜ and of course, my live performance at directed and produced by ❀️‍πŸ”₯

1 SPOT LEFT for the Girl on Fire mastermind 🌟

As we wrap up 2023, I want you to ask yourself, what are you doing today to make sure that when that ball drops on New Year's Eve you feel READY and EXCITED for 2024?

Will you drift into another year as the same person, doing the same things, thinking the same thoughts, talking to the same people?

Or will you blaze into 2024 with fresh ideas, fresh energy, fresh vision, and a fresh group of women who are all thinking BIG?

Whenever I think about my future life, I remind myself that I need to make decisions right now as my future self. What would the woman you want to be do right now? What moves would she be making? How would she be setting herself up?

Don't let yourself talk yourself out of the support you deserve, babe. Don't let another year begin without committing to yourself.

Link in my bio to apply. We kick off next week. Will you choose yourself? ❀️‍πŸ”₯βœ¨β€οΈβ€πŸ”₯

Last week I woke up to several messages saying things like:

"Please send me the invoice ASAP, I want to pay you!"

"I did my application! Can you accept me so I can pay lol"

"I want to buy every single thing you put out there"

All right before the holidays. All during a time in the world where there's a lot of frantic energy around the economy. The truth is, this is a regular occurrence for me.

I have never found it "hard" to make money in my business. From the moment I started my business over a decade ago. Before Instagram existed, before hundreds of thousands of followers, before I was a bestselling author. It's never been hard because I never believed it would be hard.

And I want that for every single woman on that planet. Truly. πŸ™πŸΌ

A lot of people discount the energetics of success but I can tell you as someone who's been an entrepreneur for over a decade, energy is everything. And the conversations you're having and the people you surround yourself with will 100% impact all of that. The rooms you are in and the support and belief you receive from those around you have a direct impact on your happiness, your purpose, and your income.

I invite you to become really TRULY aware of the things you are saying about what is possible for you. Are you talking to people on a daily basis who are panicked over the economy? Are you taking part in conversations about how "nobody is buying anymore!" Because fear is rampant right now and it's easy to get sucked in.

It is safe to release low vibrational people from your life. It is safe to seek out those who lift you up. It is safe to choose yourself.

Come back to yourself. Come back to your magic. Come back to your power.

You've got this.

PS - There are 2 spots left for the Girl on Fire mastermind. If you desire a supportive group of high-vibrational women who truly want to see you win, if you want to walk into 2024 with a fresh plan, fresh energy, and fresh vision, I invite you to join us.

Change your conversations. Change your life. The link below has the application. Love you! ❀️‍πŸ”₯✨
