As you continue to be hit with the ‘New Year, New You’ vibes that encourage everything from starting a Keto Diet to taking endless free trainings that end in pitches for multi-thousand dollar programs, I wanted to give you a few ways to make more money that cost nothing more than your time.

$0 way to make more money #1: Separate your work from your worth in the world.

The value of your work is dependent upon many factors; some economic, some artistic, and some woven into the fabric of society itself. That’s why tying your work — specifically, the number of dollars it brings in — to the sum total of your worth is bound to disappoint you.

If you’ve ever said, “I’m gonna charge what I’m worth” or “they’re not willing to pay what I’m worth,” stop EVERYTHING and listen in. That’s dangerous talk, and we can untie your work from your worth in this brand new podcast episode.

$0 way to make more money #2: Clear energy and plan for the year ahead.

Clearing the energy of the past year while making simple, straightforward tweaks to your calendar can help 2019 be a touch less frustrating than 2018. If some part of you wants to usher in a clean slate for the year, particularly in business, this podcast episode will help.

Also! You’re not behind or wrong or dumb or hopeless if you don’t have a 2019 plan. It’s January freaking EIGHTH, you’re a living breathing amazing human who doesn’t have to waste one more second on perfectionism of any kind.

$0 way to make more money #3: Pay me, dammit!

If you’re afraid of making more money because you think you’ll somehow change — like making six or seven figures means you become a racist, sexist, no good, very bad asshole of DOOM (been there, thought that) —

Or you don’t think you deserve to get paid fairly for your work.

Or you don’t trust yourself to make more money.


Pay Me, Dammit! is a free class about money, but it’s really about all the ways money is a stand-in for the ways you’re holding yourself back. We tackle ‘em, together, and then I throw down scripts and techniques that just plain make you dollars.

Lemme know what happens when you listen to any/all of these, please! I’d love to hear about it, and I’m always here to answer your questions.

Get. Bigger. (That’s what she said.)

In this interview with Nick McArthur, we talk all about the ways we make ourselves small (and smaller still) in order to fit in with the world, and how to begin reversing that pattern.

“We know what the world wants from us. We know we must decide whether to stay small, quiet, and uncomplicated or allow ourselves to grow as big, loud, and complex as we were made to be. Every girl must decide whether to be true to herself or true to the world. Every girl must decide whether to settle for adoration or fight for love.” — Glennon Doyle

I could give you a bullet-pointed list of the things we cover, or you could just trust me and listen ’cause Nick is brilliant, witty, wise, and sure to get you ballsier every time you lend him your ear.

We’re sick of seeing women play small, put themselves last, and get passed over for mediocre white men all over the damn place.

We want to live in a world where women a.) don’t hesitate to sell their work at a fair price and b.) advocate for their own time and well being without apologizing.

Ballsy helps you do reverse the patterns that keep you small, exhausted, underpaid, and stressed the fuck out.

P.S.  You’re not crazy.

YOU’RE AMAZING!!! For the month of June, we donated $819 to Together Rising through the big book and breathwork sale! I just cried in a coffee shop while typing in the credit card info.

YOU. INSPIRE. ME. (Also you’ve given me a reason to use a Chris Pratt GIF, so thank you/you’re welcome.)

A student who just finished the Space e-mail class reported, “I was using my phone 5-6 hours on average at the beginning of the class and now I average 1-2 hours a day. Huge drop! I feel like I have so much more internal space.”

Second: can we talk about making a better world?

I want to live in a world where women a.) don’t hesitate to sell their work at a fair price and b.) advocate for their own time and well-being without apologizing.

(Key words: without. apologizing.)

It frustrates me when I see women putting in endless hours on their businesses to end up with no real return on that investment. (I’m talking spiritual, emotional, or financial returns — nothing. Nadda. Zip.)

Further, I’m all too familiar with stories of women fighting for scraps of business time after they’ve taken care of household chores, partners, pets, coworkers, kids, ailing family members, employees, and/or the next door neighbor’s house plants while they’re on vacation. (Not even Flight of the Conchords ‘business time’ — actual real world business-y business time.)

I want you to have a profitable, life-giving business — and the clear boundaries that come with it.

That’s why I’ve created Ballsy with my friend/colleague/raddest human Nick McArthur!

Ballsy is an online course to help you sell more work with less frustration (and hesitation!).

Nick and I will help you do the inner work required to sell more products and services. Inner work, like dig around in your own beliefs and habits, identify what’s holding you back, and then toss out whatever no longer serves you. This isn’t just RAISE YOUR PRICES AND THEN GO CRUSH IT advice.

In the words of Ballsy student Lauren Van Mullem:

“Ballsy takes a very different perspective on business – it’s not ‘how to run business like a dude;’ it’s more like how to get past the bullshit we’ve been brought up thinking is normal so we can do business like the brilliant women we are. And that message is very. Much. Needed.”

Listen in on Ballsy session one, titled You’re Not Crazy:

You can absolutely-positively-I-freaking-promise learn to sell your work without apology or hesitation. You don’t have to give your work away, undercharge for it, or make up discounts on the spot.

BUT you’ll have to be Ballsy to get there.

It all begins July 16th!

👉🏻 Alllll the details here.

Buy your spot in the Ballsy online course right here for 3 monthly payments of $133.

See you on the other side, where we’ll start the Make Your Money Back Challenge! YUP we want you to start by making your money back before we even get started.



TL;DR In the first session of Ballsy, we’ll cover how the course came to be, as well as:

+ Male privilege: it’s a thing. Let’s talk about what that means for those who identify as female.

+ Differences between being male and female in the world (from Nick, who’s lived as both)

+ Differences between selling as a male and female in the world (from Kristen, who’s ghostwritten and subsequently sold millions as both)
