Authenticity & Vulnerability. 

When Messy & Magnificent first hit the airwaves, these values are what Karlee felt needed to be front and center. They would come through in every breath, every episode, every fit of laughter, and every heartfelt expression of empathy. 

This was what we needed more of in the world then. And a pretty rough year and some change later, this secret sauce is what continues to make us stand out. 

Living into our ideals. Walking our talk. Practicing what we’re preachin’. Being authentically, vulnerably, unapologetically ourselves. 

So, how do we do it? How do we continue to grow, elevate our message, and stand out from the crowd? 

We keep digging deeper, sharing more authentically, and wholly supporting this growing community that we’ve created together. 

Today, Karlee and Anitza open with a reflection on where we’ve been, what we’ve learned, and where we are today. Then, we travel back to one of our earliest episodes where listeners asked deep, juicy questions about how Karlee manages her work & life, and the mindset that helps her embody those ideals. This is a deep dive into how to run a successful business, find real work/life balance, learn from mistakes, and rise authentically. 

If you’re ready to learn how you can approach your life and business with more authenticity and more nourishment, then this episode is for you!
