I've been called the OG of copywriters for creatives, wink—I hook up women with words as a launch copywriter & brand strategist. Even while raking in more than 7-figures since I've been at it, I believe working from a place of rest (not hustle) IS possible—and I want the same for you.
Pour some bubbly (or du café, mais oui) and read the story >

How to Set Your 2020 Goals with PowerSheets

Reading Time: 6 Minutes July and a Powersheets review is here! Y’all, I love this month—I hung up the stars and stripes banner yesterday over the mantle, started re-watching the Founding Fathers documentary series on the History Channel, and already put my 6-mo.-old Tal through a test-run in his American flag smocked outfit: we ready. Bring on the watermelon, […]

Powersheets Progress: July Recap & August Goals

Reading Time: 6 Minutes Eek—Powersheets review time again! June is my ABSOLUTE hands-down favorite month of the year (December is close second, as Christmas has my heart).

Powersheets Progress: May Recap & My June Goals

Reading Time: 8 Minutes

If you’re a fan of Emily Ley, you know about Lara Casey, and vice versa. They’re buds, launched businesses nearly side-by-side, and are known for their products: Emily for her planner and Lara for her Powersheets.

Traditional goal-setting? It just didn’t work for me. I needed more than a shame-inducing piece of paper of New Year’s resolutions!

Here’s the exact method I use to achieve goals now, using a workaround method to sync up my Powersheets and Simplified Planner!

Powersheets Progress: April Recap & My May Goals

Reading Time: 4 Minutes February, you were cozy, full of rain showers, airports upon airports, plane row middle-seats, and sleep-in mornings. This first morning of March, I felt like a bear stretching post-hibernation, and ready to bounce towards a bit of a “hustle-ish” season after a few months of quieted winter days. 2017 wrapped with a big house move […]
