My closet and I had an intervention a few weeks ago.
Our mediator was my dear friend and personal brand stylist Carrie Montgomery.
Her work has been featured on Super Soul Sunday and The OWN Network, Hay House book covers and too many magazines to keep track of.
I hired Carrie to support me in the planning process of my latest brand photo shoot and in hitting the reset button on my wardrobe.
I was ready to trade up the baseball tees and sneaks for a look that felt more in alignment with where my business is going and growing.
And while I knew I was signing up for a total closet makeover, I could have never prepared myself for the emotional transformation my work with Carrie would bring with it.
During our virtual fitting, I cried when I realized that every single one of the pieces I purchased from our look book she created for me were too big.
I tried on piece after piece and was astonished as I realized I had been wearing clothes that were 1 to 2 sizes too big for me all the days of my adult life.
It was an emotional realization and reflection on the fact that I've never been able to fully see myself.
I used to call myself "big."
I was ashamed of my weight, the size of my pants and what I looked like in comparison to my more petite friends.
I struggled with an eating disorder for 15 years of my life, haunted and tormented by food, using exercise as means of survival and worthiness.
Six years ago, I decided I couldn't go on living like this.
I worked hard to heal my relationship with my body.
I made a vow that I will never abandon myself or this sacred body, ever again.
And when I realized that the clothing sizes I had been purchasing for so many years no longer fit this body, it rocked me to the core.
What else had I been hiding away?
How else had I been diminishing myself in my life, career and relationships?
Carrie held space and showed me what we could create through using the power of my personal style.
She showed me how to truly see myself for what feels like the first time in my life and for that, I will be forever grateful.
It's amazing what a great pair of pants can do for a girl.
What we wear on our bodies and the way we feel about it matters.
I can't wait to share with you all of what we created soon!
My new website launches on January 2 and it's going to be epic.

In this free training, I will share with you how:
- I created a multiple six-figure business as a full-time work from home mamapreneur.
- I maintain a steady stream of new clients at the rate and pace I work best.
- I maintain a 2-3 hour per day work schedule so I can be home full-time with our toddler.
- I have more time and space for fun projects and collaborations, new revenue streams and charity work that is important to me.
