Fear, Relationships, Authenticity, Balance, Money, Excellence, and Growth... Those are the 7 Core Topics that anchor the insights available in this Kit.
In short, The Execumama's Survival Kit is a customizable Lifestyle Management Resource for women, mothers and entrepreneurs.
The book explores women's emotional wellness from a place of practicality (how we really feel on a daily basis) and desirability (how we want to feel on a daily basis).
Women can expect to explore their emotions, address their current lifestyle challenges, and learn what I, and many of my clients do to maintain a true alignment with the kind of lives we choose to define, design, and live.
You will learn how to put your emotions in perspective, and even use your emotions (even the sucky ones!) to get a better understanding of your own patterns, emotional needs, and actions.
Part How-to and part Why, the Kit is based on lifestyle assessment and management strategies, with a focus on individualized soulwork (supported by the worksheets).
Learn how to
- OBSERVE your truest self
- APPLY your observations to your daily actions (your Work-Life flow)
- REFINE your actions to stay aligned with your ideal life at home and at work.
The stories, insights, poems, and worksheets that made the cut are all based on real experiences in my life, and in the lives of the resources I tapped for this Kit. I challenged myself to stay away from concepts and focus on the things that would SHOW (not tell) how to stay above water when the journey gets overwhelming. I absolutely rose to the challenge, as you’ll see when you invest in
Mother. Wife. Daughter. Sister. Friend. Business partner. Writer. Entrepreneur. Those parts equal the sum of me, and that reality can provide both a soothing symphony and cacophony of chaos. I write, speak, and lead workshops around how to prioritize ourselves in both the symphony and the chaos.
I believe radical self-expression is the path to work-life fulfillment.
I write for the women who are often seen as the beacons of light in their own circles, and are often mislabeled as too strong to need a hand, or already fully aligned with everything they’ll ever need.
We can be all those things, but we’re also emotional, fearful at times, and susceptible to bouts of doubt, frustration, anger, and all the other “stuff” that comes with living the Execumama lifestyle.
My wellness practice at The Life Design Agency focuses on lifestyle management, conscious parenting, entrepreneurship, and leadership for women who blaze trails, birth ideas, build brands, lead families, and love hard.

Harmony, NOT Balance
You are the type of woman who is strongly inclined to believe that her life is filled with divine purpose. Something inside tells you your unique talents and passions can lead to something incredible. You see yourself on the journey to uncovering and embracing that something. You may not always know what it’s supposed to look like, or how it’s going to happen, but you feel a connection to a Higher version of yourself.
This inclination—I call it your Divine Architectural Project— doesn’t come with an all-access pass to Easy Street. People tend to think that women like us shouldn’t even be stressed out because we’re often looked at as the leaders, or the stronger ones in our circles. We’re the ones our friends call on or think of when they want a dose of Let’s Get It! Everyone says we’ll always be okay because we’re resilient, savvy, and confident.
We value that perception, but sometimes it leaves us questioning ourselves, and subsequently muting parts of our divine experiences, particularly when it comes to our own real voice. Let’s start by exploring the power of the human voice.
I’m not even talking about complex word structure and eloquent oratory here; I’m referring to the simple magic that lies within basic utterance.
The word Utterance has its origin in the Middle French term Outrer (or Outré), which translates as: to go beyond. This is in part why a good chunk of my practice focuses on the throat chakra (Vishuddha). I believe in the power of our words, but even higher than that, I connect with the power of un-muted voices. I know from experience what can happen when women like us allow ourselves to stay muted. We omit the option of going beyond, and we stay within the confines of our past, and of society’s depiction of who we are, how we serve, and what we can and cannot accomplish. Have areas of your life been put on MUTE?
There are two main reasons women like us allow
ourselves to stay muted:
Clutter and Lack of Consent.
Clutter is the “stuff” we allow to occupy our minds and our physical spaces (homes, offices, cars, etc.) when we get stuck in “gathering mode” and forget to utilize the power of Processing.
Processing is the conscious act of assessing something
you’ve gotten (whether it’s a tangible item or a new piece
of information), with the intention of deciding whether you
want or need to keep it. Sometimes, information is given to
us so that we can juice it, take the nutrients, and move on.
Other times, it’s given to us to use for a particular part
of our journey, not to add to our permanent files.
Look around your home, for example. You’ll find closets,
corners and hidden areas that are accumulations of things
you haven’t addressed. You haven’t deliberately picked up
the item and decided whether it serves you right where you
are now. Not whether it served you in the past, but whether
it serves you
I know. You’re busy. And focused. And you’re doing your best to stay sane and inspired while you design this life for yourself and the people you love.
