Sometimes it all needs to fall apart so we know what really matters...

Can we start this post with a big huge hallelujah that Mercury is no longer in retrograde AND that it appears that spring is finally upon us!  It’s been one hell of a winter and I can say that I feel like I’m crawling my way out of a cave after months of hibernation.   Today, I am feeling an aliveness buzzing through me and a renewed energy for my passions. 

This is why we practice

This week our province (and indeed, our entire country) has been in the darkness of terrrible tragedy.   A bus crash on a rural highway involving a semi and the Humboldt Broncos hockey team bus took the lives of 15 people, leaving another 14 wounded, many critically.  As I sit down to write this post, it’s 10:30 on a Tuesday night and I’ve just driven home 45 minutes from the city listening to the Current on CBC featuring several conversations about the accident.   For many of us living in Saskatchewan, travelling the higways is a big part of our day to day lives and I don’t think there is a single person here who hasn’t taken pause to feel the profound impact this accident has had on this province. 

Why you should consider hiring a sex coach - like, yesterday!

When I first heard about the coaching profession, my first instinct was to question it.   I couldn’t understand how hiring someone to help you sort out your life could be of any value - and perhaps it wasn’t even a legitimate profession.   I figured there was enough self help, yoga, and holistic diet plans out there that one could probably just sort things out on their own.  I also believed that results won through hard work and self comittment were bound to be more valuable results than just having someone else tell you what to do. 

This might be why you feel burned out.

What’s your favourite season?  

Mine is summer.  Hands down.  Granted, I live in a part of the world where summer is short and magical - we only get about 3 months of predictibly warm & sunny weather each year.  The rest is windy, rainy, cold, snowy…. 

I suspect I’m not alone in my preference for sunny, warm days.

You’re doing Instagram all wrong... again.

The guide was born out of a Fire Starter Sessions Creative Jam Instagram coaching package that I offered to women that included some mindset work, an Instagram training and a photo shoot specifically for their Instagram feed!  I had so much fun with those packages, and from what I learned offering those packages I was able to build out my most recent coaching package: Magnetic. 

The Seductress Speakeasy Series.

So... a podcast was like, on the far off horizon.   You know, something that I may do - - one day. The idea has been banging around in my mind but nothing really solid was forming.  

Until I started planning my upcoming Webinar series that will be starting on March 5th.  As I was planning, I kept thinking of how cool it would be to keep these webinars going as a podcast series… because they are going to be THAT freaking amazing

3 money mindset tips that could change everything.

Have you ever found yourself wanting something so badly that you did everything in your power to make it happen? 

That is exactly what I did when I decided to take Layla’s Sex, Love and Relationship Coaching program.   I remember when I first saw the price tag ($10,000), I had a moment of pure sticker shock and complete fear and doubt that  that I’d be able to pay for it.  There’d be no way I could find enough cash, credit or anything to make it happen.  Never mind adding in the two bonus week retreats in Mexico and Palm Springs on top of it. 

How to actually manifest the life you desire.

You’ve done all the preparation.  You planned out your epic year of awesome.  You have dreamed all the big dreams. 

Now, to just get started. 

Getting started is often the hardest part.   I’ve been sitting here for about 20 minutes procrastinating writing this post as a good example of that.   I know exactly what I want to say.. but taking those first few actions steps, even if it is just writing a few sentances can feel kind of daunting at times. 

Read this and start building your super sexy & seductive email list today!

My relationship with newsletters and email lists is a long and sordid tale.  I can’t even begin to describe the state of my back end when it comes to mail chimp.   Which made me wonder if I could provide you with adequate support around builidng an email list. 

But, when I come to think of it,  my less than stellar history with email lists makes me even more qualified to tell you what to do because I have definitely lived what NOT to do.

Want to know my secrets for teaching truly transformational classes or workshops?

I can clearly remember the very first time I taught a yoga class.   It was 2010, I was about a month into my yoga teacher training and a friend and I went to the YMCA for a yoga class.  We got to the practice space and there were about three other people in the room waiting for the class to begin.  We waited… and waited… and waited.   But, the instructor didn’t show up.   Feeling particularly confident that evening, I offered to guide a practice...

How to get the support you deserve.

I’m going to fully admit why I’m writing this blog today, it’s because I had one hell of a fight with my partner.   You see, we were both feeling like our needs were not being met within the relationship and it was getting worse and worse as I got busier with building my business.  Things finally came to a head, and while we managed to work things out - I think a conversation well in advance of the meltdown would have done us a world of good and saved us a lot of suffering and frustration.

Starting a morning ritual will change your life, and this is why...

Last week, I told you all about my struggle with organization and how I created a solution to help me feel more ease, pleasure and joy while also being mindful of the hustle needed to move my business forward.   My daughter sees this - and while she has these tendencies - she also has the mind of a child who has grown up in the technology age.   They’re so freaking good at finding solutions... because.  Google.  

Steal my Planning workbook!

I’ve never been an organized person.   I’m a creative.   Organization is like soul death to me.   I thrive in a little bit of chaos, it excites and compels me to think differently.  Often chaos is a necessary component to my creative process.... most of the time (read on if you are curious about when chaos is good, and when it hinders my process) 

Makeover your Instagram in 21 Days

At the later end of 2017 I decided to take on a fun new project.   I had been speaking to so many women who are creating an online business and were feeling stuck around how to use social media effectively.   There were a few big problems that these women faced when approaching their relationship to marketing their brand online through Instagram in particular.
