Origin™ Interview Series: Part Two – A New Way of Being to Prevent Burnout

Women impress me. They really do.

Today I want to introduce you to an Origin™ member who lives down the street but who found out about our community through a friend in San Francisco! (Don’t you just love the way the world works?)

Shauna’h is the mother of twin 5-year-old boys, she works full-time at Bates College, she has a direct-selling business and an Etsy jewelry shop, and she volunteers to support families who are new to our country in getting settled.

Yep, she’s got a lot going on.

During our chat, she told me that she used to approach all of her goals by pushing harder and trying to run faster towards them. And this way of being had left her feeling overwhelmed and apathetic about life and business.

But then Origin™ came along, and she’s discovered a whole new way of being that’s not only prevented burnout for her (which she’s been all too familiar with in the past), it’s also helped her notice a significant uptick in business. (People are approaching her to join her team!)

Click the video below to learn more about how Shauna’h’s new way of being with Origin™ at her side has transformed the way she mothers, the way she runs her businesses, and the way she moves as a woman in the world.

Want to learn how to work in a sustainable way where you can be present for your business and your family, not to mention find more grace like Shauna’h has done? My free Sustainable Success Workshop is coming up October 10th.

Get on the VIP Waitlist so you don’t miss it.

Get on the list for the FREE Sustainable Success Workshop Series. Starts Oct 10th! 


What did you learn from Shauna’h about a new way of being as an entrepreneur and nurturer? How can you apply it to your own life? Let me know in the comments!


The Origin™ Interview Series: Part One – Attracting Unexpected Success Through Saying No

About a month ago, I had the honor of spending the day having heart-to-hearts with four of the extraordinary women who are members of the Origin™ Collective. I got a little misty in each and every video (these women are incredible), and I finished the interviews with an even fuller heart, knowing that what we’re creating…

How to Do Less When You Have Way Too Much to Do

This summer my “Do Less” philosophy has been biting me in the ass. If I were to give this summer a title it would be “The Summer of More.” I didn’t intend to have a summer that was bursting at the seams, but that’s what happened. We kicked off by launching Origin™ with the most moving parts…

There’s No Such Thing As Being Behind

I’ve never been part of any group of people doing anything where there wasn’t at least one person who felt behind. They hadn’t completed all the reading. They hadn’t yet gotten their period. They hadn’t been kissed. Or asked out. Or asked to dance. They hadn’t watched all the videos or completed all of the…

Privilege, Discomfort, and the Courage to Pay Attention

I was walking out of the West African Dance class that I TA’d in college when a tall, slim African-American guy from class caught up to me on the green. He was dressed all in white with these gauzy, drawstring pants that gave his whole style a timeless quality. He had big hair and nice…

It’s All Part Of It

The other day I was really enjoying the process of doing my makeup but also feeling like I should really get to work on my burgeoning to-do list. I mean, applying makeup isn’t exactly a revenue-generating activity for me. But then I stopped myself and thought: Enjoying the process of adorning myself is self care….

Optimization Without Exhaustion

I get it. You want everything to be more streamlined, more efficient, speedier, more productive, more profitable, and absolutely optimal. I want that, too. Yet in the constant striving for the best, we can run ourselves ragged. So how do we shoot for excellence without ending up in a puddle on the floor each night…

How (and Why) to Write a Letter to an Angel

He barely spoke English. I spoke no Italian. I couldn’t figure out why he’d been so head-over-heels for me and then turned into an ice cube so suddenly. I only had two more weeks in Italy, and it seemed such a waste to leave with a broken heart. So I wrote a letter to his…

(This is part four of a four-part series on the phases of creation. (Here are parts one,  two, and three if you missed them.) Everything you ever birth – be it a baby, a book, a business, or a brunch – goes through these four phases. They sync up with the seasons, the lunar cycle,…

Financial Ease Is a Possibility For You

A few weeks ago I stood in a circle of amazing men and women around a fire pit at a Summer Solstice celebration. Each person was sharing something they were grateful for that they’d manifested since the Winter Solstice 6 months before. One friend in particular shared that she’s doing work (and getting very well…
