Are you in 'waiting mode?' (+ baby update)

Happy FRIIIIIDAY!! Hope you're doing well and having a beautiful day. Personally, I've been living in 'waiting mode' the last week or so waitin' on this baby! It got me thinking about how often in life we are in the 'waiting mode' instead of appreciating the day (and making the most of it). I think tomorrow's gonna be the day everything changes. I recorded a lil' mini podcast episode sharing updates and an inquiry on the concept of WAITING for things to happen in life vs. actively working...

Welp, I'm about a day away from my official baby due date! Please send all virtual positive vibes ✨ I am totally bewildered that sometime soon I will shift my identity to becoming a MOM! I recorded a short podcast sharing some life + course creation updates below if interested in hearing more! Also, if you want to learn from an inspiring seasoned course creator, I highly recommend listening to last week's podcast episode with Jam Gamble! Jam teaches people how to use their voice as their...

9 months ago I was laid off from my full-time course-creation job. Today I found out that same company eliminated another 20% of the workforce in a company-wide downsizing. Truth is… getting laid off was a true blessing in disguise for me. Not only was I able to go all in on working on my biz (helping inspiring experts create their online courses)...but I'm expanding my family and got married and pregnant! So if you’re doom scrolling today and start to feel fear and scarcity…I encourage you...

Happy Thursday! Do you have something on your mind or heart that you REALLY want to do, but can’t seem to get it started or build meaningful momentum? You may be facing: THE RESISTANCE. Prolific author Steven Pressfield writes extensively about this topic. He has sold 1m copies of his books, and yet spent 17 years writing (and attempting to write) before he earned his first paycheck. I thought of his work and quotes as I faced resistance this week! In the course creation world resistance can...

Happy Thursday! This quote recently woke me up: "Though it may seem like the world is falling apart, we are actually living in a very special time of global transformation—moving from the Information Age to the Intuition Age— and right now we’re experiencing the early signs of this sweeping change."- Penney Peirce (author + teacher) Have you noticed a shift? We have access to all the information on the Internet to solve virtually any problem, and yet sometimes we don’t take action. What...

I got my driver’s license last week! A true joy (and relief) to finally check this one off the bucket list. Now here’s the thing…my husband and I have one car and it’s a stick shift. He loves it. I am *ahem* learning to love it. I took driver’s lessons with an automatic and it felt like a breeze. Every time I drove his car it felt like an awkward struggle. Well, the truth is STARTING the car is the hardest part. The stalling and chugging when I was first learning was embarrassing. Of course I...

Happy Thursday! Sending you lots of uplifting wishes for a new season and a new quarter! A quick reminder and invitation to share with you today. Whenever I feel “stuck” in life, I realize I have fallen back into a pattern of wanting to do everything right (or ‘perfect’ the first time). Hooo boy that slows all progress to a halt and also takes the fun outta everything. I offer you this reminder today: taking imperfect action on anything (i.e. a long overdue conversation, posting on social...

Earlier this week I was on a four hour training hosted by one of my course creation mentors about the future of online courses. I have a 20 page Google doc of notes. Let’s just say, the future is VERY, VERY bright in the online course world. Online courses hit a peak in 2020 when online learning accelerated out of necessity, though it’s continuing to skyrocket. But, there’s one big difference. The aftermath of the last couple years has left many of us feeling disconnected and isolated,...

Launching my podcast last week really shook me up. Creating it felt easy and fun…but releasing it? Hooo boy. My sister–in-law texted me about it, and I realized REAL people in my life will actually HEAR IT! Cue me wanting to hide. And by hiding, I essentially mean disconnecting. In the past, a few beers could help me disconnect. Now, being 7 months pregnant, my disconnection “tools” are eating way too much sugar (hello brownies) or too much YouTube. It definitely sucks when the fear...

Happy Thursday! Today I am thrilled to share that I’ve launched a podcast! Spotify Apple YouTube Quick story: When I got laid off in July of last year I thought it would be the ideal time to start a podcast. Then I got pregnant. Then I got morning sickness. And the idea to start a podcast stayed as an idea. When I got married in January and became Gwen Aussem I joked that I finally need to embody living an awesome life. This led to the idea percolating to start recording solo episodes of how...
