Are you called to stepping up BIG in your business + life, to share your gifts with the world powerfully + abundantly?
Are you ready to be uplifted to the next level – in the numbers of people you help, the abundance you receive back + the magnificence you shine?
I’m offering a very special, limited opportunity to attend an exclusive, intimate, powerful entrepreneur’s retreat with me + my family at Paradise House. For 3 days, I’ll be mentoring + guiding you in taking the next leap in your business – giving you the strategy, marketing, energy uplift + money mindset shifts you need.
There’s only 3 spaces left in my September retreat – my October retreat + private sessions have already been booked out!
This is a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to get maximum attention + mentoring from me to take your business + life to a whole new level.
I have no idea how long spaces will be open – this email is going out to 20 000 women.
I can’t wait to share an incredible time with the women who step up to say YES. I just know deep in my heart how radically uplifting it will be, and how it will go on to transform the rest of their lives.
P.S. If you’re ready to step up + play BIG in the world, to help the people you were born to help, I’m ready to help you make it happen. No more running around in the dark, trying to work things.

What’s more – I can promise you – it just gets better + better as it goes along. How much joy, love, abundance, prosperity + purpose can you stand?
I’ve built a thriving, gorgeous business that’s moving into a half-million-dollar a year company from my creative gifts. It’s been the most thrilling, incredible, spiritual & fulfilling ride of my life.
I’m able to create blog posts, programs, videos + art at a rate many other creatives + business owners find bewildering.
And I’m also able to do it with joy, ease, fun + a whole lot of prosperity.
There are many reasons for it.
You see, many people are all creatively blocked up.
What’s more, it’s costing you – being creatively blocked up like that is costing you money, time, happiness, success + fulfillment.
When you are creatively blocked, you are afraid of making mistakes. You are afraid of being your authentic selves. You are afraid of being judged. You don’t trust the voice inside you or your own vision. You aren’t connected to your inner muse.
I’m going to teach you how to dispel all of that –
so that creating becomes effortless, joyful + easy for you too.
You’ll step totally and completely into the sacred creative flow – and bring you giant surges of the money, time, happiness, success + fulfillment you’ve been craving.
What it means when you step into your Creative Goddess self is that you share your gifts with the world. You pour out the miracles that are inside you. You let your creativity heal you – and go on to heal thousands more. This world needs you to be a Creative Goddess. And you need you to be one too.
Head over here to here the gushing praise + sign up to have your life, creativity, happiness + business transformed.

Once upon a time, I tried to divine the future.
When you first grasped a pen, I watched: left handed like your Daddy?
right handed like me?
As though that would tell your destiny.
Did you talk quickly? Did you walk late? Were you afraid of loud noises?
Shy or boisterous?
As though all the calculations would tell me who you are,
and who you would be in this world.
And then I found the truth:
I don’t know who you are.
And I love you all the same.
apple of my eye, lightbeam from the heavens,
I have no idea about you
and it doesn’t matter at all.
One day, right now,
you’ll grow up.
Will you be artistic? Or sporty? Studious? Or a fun-seeker?
I don’t know.
It doesn’t matter.
Will you yell at me when you’re a teenager? Slam doors? Chase down boys or run after girls?
I don’t know.
It doesn’t matter.
I have no idea what you’ll be when you’ll grow up. It doesn’t really matter, as long as you are you.
I don’t know if you’ll travel the world. Or settle down early.
I don’t know if you’ll be a mama, or not.
I don’t know if we’ll always get along, or if we’ll be best mates, or if you’ll need time out from me for a while.
I don’t know if you’ll get married, or never get married, and if you’ll love men or women or middle sex, or as I say to your Daddy “Who knows what relationships will be like in the future!”
I don’t know what you’ll think of the world, and if it will differ radically from me or your Daddy.
I don’t know if you’ll live until you’re a wild 95 year old like my gran, or if you’ll die like my brother before you turn 25.
I don’t know if you’ll live here or there or everywhere.
I don’t know if you’re here for a long ride, a short ride, an easy ride, or a challenging ride.
It doesn’t matter. I will love you anyway.
I don’t know who you are.
That’s your business. That’s your thing for you to work out.
I don’t know if you’ll always be happy, or if you will hurt.
I will do everything in my power to help you be happy,
but at a certain point, it’s all up to you.
And it’s the best and most beautiful choice you’ll get to make, again and again, in this world.
My only job
is to love you
with my whole heart.
And that’s the easiest task I’ve ever been given in my life.
I’m a productive mama. I create a LOT. I get a lot of shit DONE.
And I also have an incredibly balanced life:
I work only 3 hours a day – sometimes an hour more, sometimes an hour less.
I’m the CEO of a multiple six figure company.
I create blog posts + new programs at a pretty astonishing rate.
And I’m also an “attachment mama” – I still breastfeed my 2.5 year old, and we co-sleep, and I spend the vast majority of my time with her + my husband. She’s always been with me or my husband or both of us since she was born.
So: how do I do it?
How do I get stuff DONE while balancing mamahood + a booming, beautiful, abundant business?
1. You make it happen
I’m really blessed that my business has meant my husband no longer needs to work. He is at home with us to be a daddy-o and study Psychology part time. We’re juggling to make sure that all our needs get met – Ostara’s need for love, care + attention, his need for time to study, my need to run my business + not lose my shit.
For the first six months of Ostara’s life though, Chris worked full time and would leave before we got up, and be at home only an hour or so before me + Ostara headed to bed. There was no chance for time out for me, so I did what I had to: I ran my business from my iPod. I would write thousand+ word blogposts with one finger. I’d be replying to Twitter at 3am. I came up with my own million dollar idea – the Goddess Circle membership program in the dreamy haze between night time feeds. And I launched it in the morning from a mattress on the floor with a six month old baby jiggling on my knee.
It ain’t easy. But it IS doable. When you’ve got faith, courage + unwavering passion for what you do, there isn’t any other option.
2. You carve out time for yourself
Once I was ready to, I started carving out time for myself.
I gave my husband the gift of leaving my daughter with him on his own to let him and her work out their dance together.
I gave them the opportunity to form their own relationship without me in the way.
And their bond got stronger and stronger.
Now she’s totally cool with my afternoon work stints.
“Honey, I’m going down to do a couple of hours work now.”
“No I’m not going in the car. I’m going to my office. You can stay here and play with Daddy and the dogs.”
“Doggggiesssssssssss! Okay! Bye bye!”
(And then she waves, and nods her head furiously, and blows me kisses. Then she fetches Charlie’s leash so she can take him for a walk around the house. This pretty much happens every single day.)
If I didn’t have my husbo available to give me the time out I need to do my business stuff, I’d work out another solution.
3. You include your kids
I was talking to Marissa, my dear Chief Operations Officer/other side of my business brain this morning. Every week, we have two hour long strategy + soul sessions together… aligning our to-do list with our intentions, talking out the big soul expansions we are navigating through.
I LOVE that photo of you… that one you made into a new banner. And knowing what I know now… I want to know what was happening behind the scenes in that photo. You always look so serene in your photos, but I’ve been at one of your photoshoots. I know what they are like. So tell me what happened at this one!
That above is the photo in question.
And Marissa’s right: she’s seen what goes down at our photoshoots.
And we only had a few minutes to do it, and there was me + my hunky husband (who is the talented photographer behind most of my photoshoots) + my gorgeous 2 year old daughter Ostara + Marissa.
And the photos turned out gorgeous + serene of course.
What you didn’t see of course was that we struggled to find the right backdrop, and we were running against the clock, and it was steamy hot, and Ostara was REALLY not interested in being there. And me + Chris carry on our time-honoured photoshoot dance: he’ll start taking photos, and I’ll start yarking on at him about making sure the ISO is at the right level, and the exact framing I’m looking for (because I’m a visual control freak who wishes she could be behind the camera + infront of the camera at exactly the same time). And he’ll promptly ignore me, because he’s the least push-aroundable person on the planet, which I find simultaneously very sexy and also annoying. And he’ll start teasing me to make me laugh, saying that me laughing is more natural a photo than me posing smiling. And he’s right – as usual. That man is ALWAYS right. And about 360 seconds into this malarky, Ostara is finished, and DONE for the day. And I haven’t got all the photos I wanted, so Chris takes Ostara + lets her sit on his lap to drive up the dirt road behind the cemetery along the canefields (SAFETY FIRST, PEOPLE). And in the 120 seconds of peace that results, I climb up a tree + snap some photos of Marissa + get eaten by ants. Then we pile back into the car, sweaty + borderline cranky + spotty from ant bites. And we get some pies to sooth ourselves back down.
AND THAT’S HOW YOU DO A FAMILY-INCLUSIVE PHOTO SHOOT.
I’m gonna be real with you, sometimes I felt a bit like this:
I know some people would wonder why we don’t get a sitter for Ostara + head out for an hour or more + do it leisurely.
For us, we’ve tried really hard to integrate Ostara into our lives as much as possible.
Me + Chris are creative peeps. Our lives pre-Ostara were saturated with art + making music + creative projects + lots of reading. So that’s what we do now as a family. And it takes a shitload more patience + a bit more flurried activity to get it finished. It’s a whole new skillset.
That’s why I recorded the Creating with Kids video workshop – to document (like a reality tv show) what it’s like to create with kids + how to actually embrace the fun while we do it. It documents me + Ostara (as a wee one) doing a painting together over the space of a couple of days, along with other creative projects we get up to. You get to see first hand the soul lessons that come about, the infinite number of boobfeeds, the ways we set it up to make it as loving + happy as possible. Because mamas need their creative time, and their babas need to see them do it + be a part of it too.
Somedays it’s the most dreamy day of creating ever. Somedays, like the photoshoot, is a little more soul medicine.
It’s just how we roll. It’s a little bit messy, and a whole lot of amusing, and a whole lotta real love.
We know that by including her, it’s just going to get easier + easier. It’s her normal to have creative parents who like to have “special projects” and photoshoots at the cemetary. And we’ll get smarter + smarter about how to make things flow even more. Being a parent is the fast track to becoming a Bodhisattva – it shaves off all your hard corners, and sloughs away your shit until you become as smooth as a river stone.
Most of all — this is my life, and I wouldn’t want it any other way. I LOVE this business of mine. I LOVE that I get to live my passions every single day. And I LOVE that I get to be a mama + spend so much time with my family.
It’s totally okay to be a mama… and to have other passions outside of mamahood.
I love that this way of life gives me CHOICES – the choice as to how I spend my time. The choice for my family to move to where we need to be. The choice as to how we get all our needs met. It’s why I’m so passionate about being a business goddess. I want to help other mamas get there too – to the place of freedom + choice as to how they want to live their good life. This world is changing so rapidly – and the #1 way I see it changing is giving women + families those gorgeous choices.
It’s all doable.
