Steering Your Business with EASE

The Innermost is coming to Asbury Park, New Jersey, this November 5-7, 2023.  It’s a live event designed to help you UnGoodGirl your business as quickly and painlessly as possible.

BUT WHAT AM I GOING TO LEARN, YOU ASK…

Let’s start with the fundamentals: how to steer your business to pleasingly profitable places, no matter the circumstances.

The world of owning a business is laced with ways to waste money, time, and energy ABSOLUTELY EVERYWHERE. You can easily waste maaaaany thousands of dollars, a few years of your life, and all the energies that cause grey hairs to emerge without making ANY real progress.

Good girl conditioning makes everything about owning a business WORSE.

Specifically, it makes having what you have and wanting what you want nearly impossible.  Those are the keys to navigating entrepreneurial waters cleanly and quickly.

Conditioning dictates that you aren’t reaaaally allowed to have what you have.

You aren’t to talk about your achievements, talents, gifts, powers, or accolades. You aren’t supposed to talk about money, either, which means that even discussions of funding and pricing can become taboo. Because you aren’t allowed to simply HAVE WHAT YOU HAVE, it becomes difficult to feel like you’re a ‘real’ business owner or that your success isn’t just ‘luck’ or ‘a fluke.’

Fully owning what you have, inventory style, is essential to directing your business with confidence in both your abilities and resources.

If your conditioning is fully intact, you won’t know what you want — which is the key to creating a business that brings energy and meaning to your life.

I have talked to MANY MANY MANY female business owners who do NOT want a business. They may have one because they had a hobby and spent too much money on it, so they tried to make it a profitable enterprise, or they may have taken the next ‘logical’ step with their talents, or they may have been forced to use their back-up plan when in financial hardship.

The key to undoing this conditioning is simply to SPEAK ALOUD WHAT YOU WANT AND THEN KEEP HOLD OF IT NO MATTER WHAT ANYONE SAYS.

No one on earth can ‘make’ you want something. It’s your job — your sacred duty, even — to be precise and clear about what, exactly, will light you up.

Sometimes the key is to let go of what you don’t want to make room for something better.
Sometimes the key is refining what you already have to make it sing.

No matter what: refusing to acknowledge what you have and what you want will end with a loss of time, power, and energy.

Listen to this episode of That’s What She Said to explore having and wanting in more detail, and to tease out the ways navigating from a place of secure resources and deep desire can help you starting right this moment.

If you enjoy what you hear, come to The Innermost!

P.S. My whoooooooole business at the moment is focused this one event, this one time, and it’s going to be PURE. MOTHERFUCKING. MAGIC. Check out The Innermost, okay?

What’s that, you want the scoop without listening? Here’s one of my favorite of Erin’s poems from her latest book, (Im)Perfect Blooms.


Do Nothing

Do nothing like a lion
napping in the shade,
waiting for the heavy sun
to drag across the sky,
for the heat to abate
into cool sweet darkness.

Do nothing like a bird singing
in no particular direction,
taking off in an eye-blink
to another branch
without warning or reason.

Do nothing like a baby hippo
cradled in the river,
doing a slow-motion moon-bounce
as its stamping feet
prance on the rocky bottom.

Do nothing like a rabbit,
back feet splayed out in
relaxation, munching on
a casual dandelion
under the covered comfort
of a blackberry bush.

Do nothing because
it is yours to do, always,
for this earth has fruit and shade
and water and it is never
had to be this hard.

Be wild and rest.
It is your birthright.

UnGoodGirl: Money Skills and Feels

Much of my work this year is in continuing to UnGoodGirl myself — and then translating that transformation to all my peeps.

Listen to this That’s What She Said podcast episode if you’re ready to dive in to ways you can begin freeing yourself from money bullshit, starting right now.

We begin the UnGoodGirl podcast series with two money truths:

1. Part of good girl conditioning requires you to say “I’m not good with money,” whether that’s true or not.

I have watched women who have paid for a house with cash or received $250k grants from NASA or gotten a full-ride scholarship to their college of choice or earned six (or 7!) figures last year say THEY ARE NOT GOOD WITH MONEY.

Consider that ‘I’m not good with money’ is a default that’s installed by good girl conditioning, not AN ACTUAL TRUTH.

2. The default money feelings available to women are shame — WHY AM I SO BAD AT MONEY / FAILING WITH MONEY / SO FAR BEHIND — or guilt — WHY DO I HAVE MONEY AND OTHERS DON’T / WHAT DOES HAVING MONEY SAY ABOUT ME / AM I SECRETLY A MONSTER FOR HAVING X AMOUNT OF MONEY.

Consider that you deserve to enjoy the money you have, or to not beat the everloving shit out of yourself if your money levels aren’t where you’d like them to be.  Neither guilt nor shame will help you face, enjoy, or grow your money. 😉

P.S. Money is your friend.

The Good, The Bad, and the Binary

In this episode of That’s What She Said, we’ll talk about The Good, The Bad, and the Binary.  I’ll walk you through the ways the concepts of ‘good’ and ‘bad’ fail women in particular, due to our good girl conditioning.

Spoiler Alert: the difference between a ‘bad’ girl and true evil is A SPECTRUM SO BIG THAT IT TAKES ABOUT 20 MINUTES TO DEMONSTRATE USING VIVID EXAMPLES FROM MY LIVED EXPERIENCE AS A BUSINESS COACH.

You’ll hear the results of THREE YEARS’ worth of wrestling with these concepts come together in one 41-minute podcast episode. 👇🏻

P.S. If you’ve ever had your brain tell you that you should be further along by now, listen to this.

Bruce Report #2 // PURE JOY SPAM, BABY!

2023 has gone from zero stars to a full TWO stars! ⭐️⭐️

And you can blame Bruce Springsteen.

In breezy, professional speak:

A new Bruce Report episode of That’s What She Said is up, and it’s all about my encounter with The Boss, remembering what giddy feels like, and how deeply vulnerable it is to share sheer joy.

In how-I-actually-feel speak:

BRUCE SPRINGSTEEN AND I HAD A MOMENT AND IT LOOKED LIKE THIS

AND FELT LIKE THIS

AND I AM STILL SMILING FROM THIS FACE (NOPE I didn’t have a camera and YUP he’s holding my gaze and YUP the anonymous Bruce fan who sent me this is AMAZING)

AND HERE IS THE NEW BRUCE REPORT.

💥 If you’re like, WAIT WHO CARES ABOUT YOUR SEEING SPRINGSTEEN?

I decided to make 2023 about as much joy as I possibly could when I found out my mom was dying. Then she died (fully story here, poems about it here), and dad got cancer, and then he had surgery and he’s okay(!!!).

I’m seeing Bruce on tour 6x this year to balance my pain and joy scales, because the past six months have been WOW PAIN. Bruce Report #1 is here.

IN MATTERS OF ADDITIONAL JOY: 👇🏻

Bubs is obsessed with bubbles. 🐶

Hugs,

K

P.S. This is LAST CALL for the Dublin Imaginarium!

Join me for a few days of re-imagining your life from the ground up, starting with every area of life where you say you’re ‘fine’ but actually, you’re breathing fire and your family members are low key surprised that you haven’t burned the house down with your dragon rage. 😉

All Bruce media bits were given to me by a random fan whose name I don’t know but who was sweet, kind, and delightful enough to send these along! Thank you, guy!
