Leaving San Francisco

It’s taken me a long time to be able to write this. As crazy time flies, it’s been close to a year since I left San Francisco, what had been my home on and off for 7 years. Leaving there officially October 17, 2017 in retrospect was the best thing I ever did. (If you don’t want to read the background skip down to “ripping off the bandaid”).

Reconnecting to my Divine Feminine Energy

You might have read the title to this and thought....WTF? But for real, it is something that maybe since I left San Francisco is a conscious effort to stay connected to. I felt like I had lost it in a lot of ways.

You might have read the title to this and thought....WTF? But for real, it is something that maybe since I left San Francisco is a conscious effort to stay connected to. I felt like I had lost it in a lot of ways.

I chose challenges that were vast and hard in lots of parts of my life that kept bringing out my masculine energy in order to succeed, or so I thought that’s what I needed. In the end so many times I felt I moved away from my true essence, which is love and more on the feminine energy side.

So Here I Am

Written for She Ventures May 2018. The time leading up to those events was a deep period of transition and transformation for me that started back in October 2017. Life took a lot of twists and turns, some expected and some not so. If I am honest though, the past 10 years have been a period of transition, transformation,  and reinvention to shaping me into the woman I am today.

Movement and Ritual

Movement has been a necessary ritual in my life for over a decade. What that looks like varies day to day. Turns out movement is the ultimate emotional boost! Having a bad day, feeling depressed, feeling anxious? Move your body even for 20 minutes...those awful feelings start to melt away.

Filling Your Heart Instead of Your Pocket

Life is a series of choices, a journey and not a destination. When is the last time you made a major life decision/choice based on whether it would bring you joy? If you are like me, about August this past year I came to the shocking realization that the answer for me was never. All of my major life choices had been made around having purpose, life fulfillment, life bucket lists, accomplishments, but never joy.

The Solo Traveler

There have been a lot of moments the past 4 days on my scooter riding on desolate and very dodgy roads, swimming in the sea with no one else there but me, or hiking down trails that warned people the "trail was broken" when I kept looking around and saying out loud, "thank you, thank you, thank you!"

Getting to 50/50

While my path in life has in no way been linear. All roads have led me to look/experience the lack of equality that exists straight in the face. This is regardless of the industry I have worked, as a solo female founder navigating the capital landscape, as a philanthropist and activist speaking out against gender-based violence, and in every boardroom I have sat in.

Changing the Face of Adventure

Adventure has the power to change lives. I know so, because it changed mine. There was a time where I could not run a mile, where I had never spent a night under the stars, where my perception of what was possible was in a sense limited. Luckily, slowly but surely the beauty of nature and adventure made it’s way into my life in my 20s but really in my mid to late 20s when I was overstressed with business school, working full time, and had multi-hour commutes. Adventure became my way to preserve balance, sanity, and creativity.

FUEL SMART GROWTH WITH GREAT CULTURE

The journey of a founder is not a linear path by any means, and the juggling act is continuous. So what happens when all lights are green and funding is in and/or traction and revenue high and it’s time to grow and grow fast? One thing is for certain, don’t lose sight of your culture when approaching growth.

All That We Are

I do not belong in a box. I just plainly do not fit in one. I have always known this about myself. There are so many aspects that make up who I am that I would struggle to lose any part of that in my work, my relationships or in my passions. Yet, I have struggled at different times in my life by feeling I was putting myself in one in order to move forward.
