THE JOURNEY OF “NO BRAINERS”
HOW IT STARTED
I SAT ON THE PLANE AND CRIED LIKE A BABY... not even going to lie. This is how the magazine was birthed. Me sobbing on a plane like a major weeper with the poor man, Mr. Joe sitting next to me giving me the occasional sympathy glance.
See. I attended a LIVE masterclass of sorts where 9 boss babes gathered around to discuss business and strategy. The event was called “BRAND BUILDERS” and was hosted by the lovely Jasmine Star, who poured business wisdom over us in the course of one day.
As I listened to each woman's story, their goals and the tasks they set before them. It dawned on me... I was living small. and every. single. thing. I was doing was, let's just say, not right. At least not right for me... and the dream God placed within my heart.
Between each business strategy session, we had a “coffee break” where everyone would mingle… everyone but me. I would race out the door of the building and pace outside in the sunlight with tears streaming down my face.
See. Major weeper!
Why was I crying? Well. Because at the time, I was coaching women either in a group setting or one-on-one which I loved; however, I felt like there was a disconnect. Our coaching sessions would last for 4-6 weeks pending on the client and then… off they would fly like birds out of a nest. With me hoping everything we discussed in that time together would hold. And if you ever worked with a coach or even a trainer in a gym, you know that LIFE HAPPENS!
Sometimes, in those 4-6 weeks, you would get derailed… a family member would get sick, you planned a week’s vacation or something else would happen. I get it! But that was time gone in our coaching together. And as I sat there, crying… in my heart, I felt like I could serve women better, BIGGER and more meaningful.
Thankfully, it was a four hour flight back home and I was able to collect myself enough to come up with a game plan. How to stop living small + start taking action... how to best serve others to the best of my ability by using the talents God placed within my heart.
(we all have talents, don't lie... you got some, too + they are pretty bad-sass)
In an airplane somewhere over Arizona, mapping out all the details... and vowing not to live small but to serve others BIG + better! But allow me to share with you what EXACTLY is NO BRAINERS… and how it may be just the thing YOU are looking for, love!
WHO IS THIS FOR:
This is for the woman who knows nutrition is important to her mental well-being and overall health; however, is tired of eating bland chicken breast and if someone offers her broccoli, she may just punch them in the throat. A woman who is living a beautifully chaotic life yet always feeling drained and unable to be fully focused with the ones she loves. She longs for simplicity and for someone to provide her a game plan of what to eat + when while giving her the tools to learn for herself.
NO BRAINERS is for the woman who knows her overall wellness isn’t just about what she puts in her body (through nutrition) but also what she places ON her body (through beauty products) and the environment around her (music, the words she is feeding herself and the people she is surrounded by).
This is for the woman who would like to take action yet needs bite-size consumable information to help make simple tweaks into her daily life without the overwhelm. So that she feels proud of herself when she lays her beautiful head down to sleep knowing she took action today towards a healthier and more vibrant life.
The NO BRAINERS magazine + the community fills my heart with such joy and I am thrilled to be sharing it with you, love. But let's dive a wee bit deeper!
There is something about joining a tribe of women who are on the same journey as you… (which is to live the healthiest life possible)! By purchasing NO BRAINERS, you will be placed in a private + supportive environment where we can dive deep into your own wellness goals!
What happens in NO BRAINERS, stays in NO BRAINERS…
it’s like Vegas in that aspect!
In the private setting, you will have access to Me (hold the applause... just kidding) as well as other women who are striving to live their best life as well! There are daily posts, bonus recipes, LIVE classes and even LIVE Q&A calls!
GUT-HEALING, BRAIN-NOURISHING RECIPES
This is my jam! I LOVE exploring new recipes which are filled with REAL ingredients to help nourish your body. With each issue of NO BRAINERS, you will receive at least 5 family-style recipes approved by my "meat and potato" hubster + 5yr old twins.
Seriously. If 5 year olds will eat these meals, you know they must be good! Am I right? Note: majority of these recipes are gluten free, legume free and for the most part, dairy free.
Within the NO BRAINERS, you will receive tools and information to make this a lifestyle. Just bite-size consumable information! Because who needs more OVERWHELM? Not me!
You heard of the saying, "give a man a fish, he has dinner. teach a man to fish, he eats for life." Well, it goes something like that anyways... and that's the point of this!
Each month, we will dive deep into one topic where you will receive information from a guest who has experience in our monthly topic! This will be delivered in the magazine plus a LIVE CALL within our private community, so you can ask all your questions and have the “guest contributor” answer!
PLUS, you will receive an action plan to help you start implementing when you are ready! A few of the topics we have covered thus far include: Intermittent Fasting, Keeping Our Resolutions, How to Optimize Your Morning, etc.
I know that's a LOT of information to read + take in... plus, if you are like me, you may appreciate "bullet-style" learning more.
So, here goes, love!

Plus... a few extra goodies from moi! I got to keep some surprises.
One of the exercises I ask my ladies to do before we start working together is this... and let's do it together now, okay? Good.
Take a beat to focus on the person YOU want to be in 30 days... is she sleeping better? is she taking a wee bit of time each week to focus on her? are her kids eating a wee bit healthier? does she notice in the afternoons she isn't reaching for coffee/soda, but actually having energy? does her pants fit her in all the right places? is her skin clearing up? does her belly feel happy and less bloated/crampy?
Really focus on WHO you are striving towards... HOW she is feeling... WHAT is she doing... WHAT does her typical day look like now? Write it down.
Yep. I'm serious... write it down.
Now... thank this person.
Thank her for making the sacrifices. Thank her for believing in you to get there. Thank her for all the healthy steps she took forward each day. Thank her for making that investment in you. Thank her for the time she took for herself. Thank her for it all... simply thank her.
Keep this letter on your nightstand + read it... each morning before you start your day + each evening before you lay your head down for sleep. Read where you are headed + how much you appreciate yourself. Even if YOU are thinking our NO BRAINERS magazine + community isn't for you... maybe it's the wrong time... maybe it's not a good fit. No worries, love. Seriously. No worries, you have to do what is right for you.
My only hope for you is for you to live your most optimal self... for you to have energy to play, to live and to be present in your life. To share with you all the information I have learned so that YOU can implement and do what is right for you. Plus, provide a positive rich environment for support and camaraderie.
