For the first 6 years growing a business without social media seemed impossible. I wanted to put my phone away and be present, but I was always working. I wanted to build a business with God at the center, but I didn’t know how.
After years of striving and struggling,
I finally surrendered.
God showed me how to grow a successful, online business in less time using podcasting.
A business that glorified Him. A business that didn’t depend on social media.
The business God helped me build allows me to put my laptop down, be present, spend time with my family, make a significant income, and create Kingdom impact.
In 4 short years we’ve passed 1 million +
downloads on the podcast and over half a million in annual revenue.
This business isn’t anything I could have
dreamed of or created on my own. But God.
My calling is to show you how to do business with God, for God. To run a business that glorifies Him while creating income and impact for His kingdom.
I was an introverted mommy’s girl who grew up in a tiny town called White Rock. My dad instilled in me a hard-work ethic, silliness, laughter, an obsession with coffee, and a never-give up attitude. My mom showed me what it means to be selfless and love with a servant's heart. She taught me unconditional love.
Middle school and high school were a hot-mess express (rebellion and identity issues anyone?!). I’m going to not so casually skip over those precious years. Haha!
By my mid-20’s, I had channeled my ambition into achievement. I double-majored in accounting and finance, and went on to become the youngest financial controller in a global company by the age of 26.
I met my hubby in 2010 at work (he was the auditor #sorrynotsorry) and the moment I saw him I said, “I’m going to marry him.”
And I did.
That was it. I knew I had to stop letting ‘busy’ and ‘more’ run my life. I knew I needed to surrender, to let go of control and to redefine what success meant for me. To fully and truly trust God for the first time, ever.
I was a Christian on paper, but I was missing a relationship with Christ. I was missing the rest only He provides. I was missing His path for my life.
I got out a sheet of paper and I wrote down who God wanted me to be. I started with time with Him, surrender, obedience. To get healthy, to show up in my marriage and motherhood BEFORE my business. To serve instead of sell. And to grow in my faith in order to have a fruitful future.
I found myself broken, searching for identity. The money was gone. The team was dwindling, fast. I vividly remember running the numbers in our accounts and going to my husband with a tear-streaked face… telling him, “We don’t have enough to pay the bills.” He lovingly and calmly said, “It’s okay babe. We will borrow it from Miles' savings account and I’ll sell my Harley motorcycle.” Just like that. He selflessly loved me through my mistakes, and held my hand through one of my darkest seasons.
It’s moments of pure grace and God’s loving hand that got me through that tough year.
It was 2012, I was newly married and we were ready for a family. Brad and I decided it was my chance to try my hand at something new… something where I could work from home and raise our future littles.
I got lost in chasing success the world’s way. I rose to the top 1% of my network marketing business and by 2015, I ‘had made it’. I walked the stage carrying a 60K bonus check in front of 20K people… little did I know how much success was stealing from me.
In the 2 years that followed, I gained 60 pounds, had a newborn, was riddled with anxiety attacks and felt consumed with the uncontrollable desire to work and do more. Achieve more.
I now know that I was holding my worth and worthiness inside my worldly success.
In 2016 my business crumbled. The 1,000s of people in my downline seemed to disperse overnight. I wasn’t able to rebuild faster than it was falling apart.
I had made one dire mistake - I had put all my eggs in someone else’s basket.
I kept praying to God to guide me, to direct my steps. To use my business for his good. To show me how I could impact and lead the women He needed me to, without doing it the world's way...
In October of 2018 I woke from a prophetic dream. The message was clear: Start a Podcast. HUH?! I didn't listen to podcasts and I had no idea how to start one. That day, I kept feeling the Holy Spirit prompt me so I grabbed the $20 Amazon mic I had stuffed in a drawer, plugged it in and pressed record.
I felt the click. I knew it was an answered prayer. A way for me to show up in my authenticity, build a biz around my littles, and wear #PJsAllDay. haha. Hallelujah!
4 short years later I am in awe of what God has done through this platform. How He has partnered with me to grow something that has truly become a ministry. He is so faithful and I'm forever thankful that I was obedient in answering his command.
Today, I GET to help women get clarity on their callings, create a Kingdom business using podcasting and courses, and maintain their boundaries, and priorities.
It’s proven one thing to me: your dreams pale in comparison to God's dreams for you.
I felt like I was showing up all the time on social media, YouTube, lives, blogging, and launching course after course with no real traction. I knew I was on the right path, but something was off, something was missing.
