I want to retire the words Me Too

While it’s the day before American Thanksgiving, and I know I am supposed to say how grateful I am to have you in my community (which I am), wish you a happy holiday (which I do), I also need to be honest and say my heart has felt like it’s been cut open for the better part of the last …

Meet my hunky COO (big announcement)

Alexia Coaching, Happiness, Public Speaking, Work-Life Balance Leave a Comment

In some capacity, I’ve envisioned making the kind of announcement I’m about to make for the last four years, even if it wasn’t until this summer that I felt certain it was time to make the following decision. Drumroll please… I’m excited to introduce you to my new COO, my husband, Stephen. While both Steve and I are a little …

How to align with spirit to call in speaking opportunities beyond your wildest dreams

Alexia Coaching, Happiness, Public Speaking Leave a Comment

One of my clients, “Joyce”, had been in a 60-day email exchange with a Fortune 500 company. After choosing not to follow-up anymore, the company emailed confirming a date for her presentation and agreed to her full speaker fee. Another client, “Alice”, with zero corporate consulting experience, received a call for a full-day consulting opportunity. In less than a week …

One of my favorite lines in my Step into Your Moxie keynote is, “We teach what we have to learn. And remember.” I believe that most transformational speakers and entrepreneurs have been called to their work, and are sharing a message, that intimately relates to a lesson they have had to learn (sometimes over and over again). And this is …

Join me in the convergence of spiritual and active people

Alexia Communication, Happiness, Leadership, Personal Branding, Personal Development, Women in Business Leave a Comment

Political commentator and social activist Van Jones has said, “It’s in the convergence of spiritual people becoming active and active people becoming spiritual that the hope of humanity now rests.” I don’t believe these big words are over stated – even if they were initially articulated before the current times they describe. There has never been, nor do I suspect …

Who (and what) are you hiding behind?

Alexia Coaching, Communication, Happiness, Public Speaking Leave a Comment

Over the last few months, multiple friends from my pre-business life have re-emerged. And in each case, the person has said something along the lines of— Lex, it’s so great to see you claim your voice and step into the spotlight. Hearing such words is incredibly validating. For while I’m one of the lucky ones (I had parents and teachers …

How much spotlight can you stand? (join me for a FREE event)

Alexia Coaching, Communication, Happiness, Public Speaking Leave a Comment

Last week I did something very uncharacteristically Lex. I bought a purse. A name brand purse. A purse that totalled more than my last three or four purses combined. And it made me deeply uncomfortable. I first saw the purse a few months ago during what happened to be one of my highest earning months of the year, and I …

F*ck. F*ck. F*ck. F*ck. F*ck. “What did you say, sweetie?” I asked, hoping I’d heard my daughter incorrectly.   And then she said it again. And again. And…again. After I put my eyes back into my sockets, unclenched my jaw and remembered how to breathe, my immediate next thought was, I’m a horrible mother. I knew my daughter had learned …

How to find freedom as a speaker (and in biz) – interview with Natalie Sisson

Alexia Happiness, Money, Public Speaking, Travel Leave a Comment

Up until 4 years ago, building a business around speaking and training DID NOT amplify my freedom. Rather, it got me in my way of it. I felt like I was constantly waiting for an HR leader or event planner to get back to me and let me know if I was the chosen one for an opportunity. I selected …
