5. What is your biggest pet peeve?

People who are rude, especially when given extra opportunities to be kind.

6. If you could have dinner with anyone (living or not) who would it be?

I’d have dinner with Neil Gaiman. He’s an incredible storyteller, and strikes me as being deeply curious and delightfully inquisitive. I feel like dinner with him would inspire an even greater childlike curiosity in me, which would undoubtedly make a positive impact on my work in the world.

7. Why is having a powerful personal brand important to you?

To me, having a powerful personal brand provides the opportunity to constantly explore the next evolution of my own freedom, so I can share what I’m learning in service of all women’s freedom. The greater life I have, the more impact I make; the more impact I make, the more brand recognition I attract; the more brand recognition I attract, the more it inspires me to live a great life. It’s a continuous loop that nourishes me, my business, the women I serve, and the people they touch.

8. What is your #1 tip for fellow women entrepreneurs?

Years ago, when I was coaching women to find freedom from emotional eating, I had to face the reality that I had become a workaholic. I was teaching women to have freedom, but I myself was un-free. When I realized this, it was obvious that this incongruence was affecting my ability to make the difference I wanted to make, and something had to change immediately. I began looking at what I was using work to avoid in my life, and began to put my attention on those things. What I discovered was that as my freedom deepened, I was more honest and courageous in my message, and my business grew quickly.

It’s so incredibly vital that we live our message; as Gandhi said, we must “be the change”. When there’s misalignment between the core of our message and how we’re actually living, it is felt and it affects our ability to make the impact we want to make in the world.

If there’s a place where you are not fully living the core of your message, it’s time to put your attention there.
