Episode 3: Done burning out? The 4 phases of growth and sustaining success.

Subscribe Now on iTunes

There’s an old myth out there that tells us that success needs to look like constant exponential growth and having “big wins” all the time—and if that’s not what it looks like for you, then you’re falling behind. That’s total BS.

This “Go big or go home!” mentality is both exhausting and unnecessary.

If we drew our professional and personal growth out on a piece of paper, it wouldn’t look like a straight upward line—that’s never been sustainable in the long-term.   Instead, sustainable success looks more like a cycle, including moments of having no idea what you’re doing, to cultivating and sharing an idea, to reflecting on the execution and results.

In this episode, Karlee explains the four phases of modern success, what they practically look like, and how to unapologetically get the most out of whatever phase you’re in right now.

Here’s the deal: it’s time to stop playing small in order to make others feel comfortable. Give yourself permission to lead with your idea, with what inspires you, and what uplifts you.

Tune in to learn about this wise approach to knowing exactly where you are in your phase of growth, which steps make sense for you, and how to ultimately live on your own terms.  

In This Episode You Will Learn:

How to consciously create the life you want. (4:15)

● The myths around vertical success. (5:04)

●  The four phases of upward sustainable success. (11:26)

●  Why taking the time to be still and listen to yourself is essential to moving forward. (13:53)

● How to protect emerging ideas from being squashed by questions and imposter syndrome. (16:23)

● What a culmination practice practically looks like. (24:47)

No sooner does change come calling, than the dreaded questions arise, right?!

Those questions might sound like, "What am I going to do next?!" or "Who am I to think things could get better?"

Subscribe Now on iTunes

What’s the one thing that if you went a little deeper into it, it would make everything else in your life either easier or not necessary at all?

The answer might not be what you expect.

This episode is NOT about traditional goal setting (you know, the kind of goals that you set because it's what everyone else is doing, and then you can't following through on them, or worse, you do follow through but don't feel any better). If you feel like you’re good at dreaming and setting an intention, but then struggle to follow through on goals to the finish line, today’s episode is for you.

The key to follow through is nourishment—not punishment. The goals you set for yourself should be sourced from you, excite you, and nourish you.

In this episode, Karlee explains how to define these self-sourced goals, create the roadmap, and actually follow through all the way to success.

Here’s the thing about people who follow through on goals: they don’t just think and talk about it. They take action. This method will help you build confidence, ensure that the goal excites you to your bones and is realistically achievable.

Tune in to learn the five-step method of creating the self-sourced goals that will nourish you and that you will follow through on. 

In This Episode You Will Learn:

The key to following through on plans to achieve goals. (5:10)

● What characteristics make an effective goal. (5:51)

● How to build confidence with setting and achieving goals. (9:58)

Episode 14: How Other People Talk To You: Discover the one person that actually elevates you

Subscribe Now on iTunes

You have a new goal in mind, or some good news to share - but who are the people that will "get it" will have your back as you grow into something new?

Ever noticed that there are some people who really celebrate with you? They can’t wait to be by your side, supporting you, and giving you space to gush your heart out. But then, in contrast, there are others that just never seem to get excited about the things you care about.

There was a basic assumption that the foundational purpose behind relationships is to be supportive of one another during hardship. While this is really important, it’s not the telltale sign of what makes the strongest relationships.

Episode 25 - Feeling Stuck or Exhausted? Great, there is something right with you.

Subscribe Now on iTunes

Why can't I keep up with everyone else?

Why don't I have the energy or answers to take the next step yet?

Am I missing out on an opportunity, or am I going to fall even father behind than I already feel?

If any of those thoughts are relatable, it could be because you're accidentally comparing yourself to the knee-jerk-swift-action way of working and living that has become our cultural norm. And frankly, that way is not working, for anyone.

So, if you’re used to doing the grind, and all this hustle got you a life that looks great on paper – but it’s leaving you feeling stuck, drained and unsatisfied at the end of the day, this is an indicator that the way things are – and the way society tells you to expect you to run your business and life – is just not working for you. And that’s okay.

It’s okay to not have all the answers right now.  You aren't exhausted because something is wrong with you, you are exhausted because something is right with you.

You see, we’ve all been taught one way to move about work and life: aggressively and immediately. Karlee is here to tell you that this is based on an outdated belief and just not sustainable over time for anyone. Ever.   The women who are truly thriving in our modern economy are the ones that do things a little differently.

In this episode, Karlee breaks down why “hustle culture” and "sperm wisdom" are unsustainable in today’s world for most, and provides doable strategies to help shift your mindset and expectations of yourself, your work, and your business.

Tune in to start living in a way that truly works for YOU in our modern economy. 

In This Episode You'll Learn:

How women in leadership roles changed the world during the 2008 recession. (2:15)

How to do better than the outdated testosterone-based leadership strategies and move toward a sustainable strategy for leading your life and business. (6:04)

The cyclical and selective nature of working and living in the world. (10:23)

Episode 26 - Self-Sacrifice is Not the Future of Business or Medicine with Shavawn Boyer, RN

Subscribe Now on iTunes

So, you have a vision for what you want your life to look like – but you keep being pulled in different directions. You feel responsible for doing all the things – and society tells you that your role is to lose yourself in service to others.

How are you supposed to take care of others when you are so depleted? And what if you don't have the time or means to take a spa weekend or travel the globe (none of us have that right now anyway)?

In this episode, Karlee chats with Shavawn Boyer, a nurse currently helping in the fight against COVID-19. She’s dedicated her life to helping heal others – but a few years ago she decided she would no longer do that at the expense of her own mental and physical health. And now she's more clear than ever about what she is going to do in order to stay on the front-lines to help others for the long-haul - spoiler: it's not about sacrifice..

It’s time to break free from the "I'll get to myself later" mindset. Permission granted to put your mask on first, and here is exactly how one woman did just that when simple things like just drinking a cup of water or going to the bathroom felt like too much of a burden when she worked - like it might distract from the mission at hand: being of service to others.

There are multiple voices in your head, pulling you in multiple directions all at the same time, right? Some of those voices are from the people around you, and some are from within yourself. So which opinions and thoughts you are you meant to listen to?

When the time comes to make a decision or life transition, you’ll inevitably be bombarded by OPOs: That's what Karlee calls "Other People’s Opinions" - and they are rampant! So, having a formula to discern which ideas or opinions are valid and which voice makes the most sense to listen can make all the difference in the world.

By the end of this episode, you will know even more about who you uniquely are at your best when making decisions. This framework is like a good shampoo - once you know it, you can rinse and repeat it again and again as new opportunities come your way.

Tune in to learn how to filter out the OPOs bombarding your mind and tap into YOUR inner voice and your best decision making .

Subscribe Now on iTunes

You work plenty hard, so why does it never feel like enough? How come each time you sit down on the sofa, your mind races and you feel behind on at least 10 projects you keep meaning to get to? Hint: this is NOT an issue of time management or doing more.

If you are a human woman on planet earth, chances are you’ve been surrounded by messages telling you that you aren’t enough since childhood. "Not enough" is smog that you unconsciously breathe in each day; it influences your mind, body, and interactions with the world around you.

On this episode, Karlee guides you through a simple 3-part process to finally know what “good enough” looks and feels like in your world. You’ll get clear on what you value and have the energy to get to all the things that are most important to you. By the end of the episode, you’ll be on the path to knowing that you are enough and doing enough, without having to work nearly as hard as you currently are.

This isn’t a one-time fix-all solution, it's a reusable framework that will guide you to realign your actions with your values and stay healthy as healthy as possible in the "smog" for a lifetime.

Tune in to get clear on your values, start enjoying the present moment, and finally experience more than enough

Episode 29 - Can’t Focus or Get Motivated? How to hide under the covers AND still prosper.

Subscribe Now on iTunes

You are grateful for the good things in your life, but sometimes you still feel like you need to curl up into a ball. You wonder why just pushing through it isn’t working anymore – and where did all the motivation go?

A lot of us are expecting ourselves to behave normally, even though things are not normal right now. It’s unfair to expect ourselves to work like robots when we are – in fact- not robots. We are human beings who go through seasons of churning out incredible work, and seasons where we need to plant some new seeds within ourselves.

On this short and sweet episode, Karlee addresses what’s truly going on for so many women that are not finding the motivation to show up in the ways we used to. She shares doable action steps to refuel your energy, focus, and motivation – and it only takes about 2 minutes and the awareness of your 5 senses.

When we are feeling exhausted and get a little too close to our regular routine, we start to get tunnel vision. We see the goal ahead, but none of the opportunities on the side that will refuel us. So if you’re career-driven and need to show up even when things are challenging, this episode is for you. The truth is, the fastest way to move through your lack of motivation is to move through it, rather than shove it down or avoid it.

It’s time to set the stage for your renewal. It’s time to make yourself a nest, get in there, and incubate until you’re ready to break out again. 

In This Episode You'll Learn:

●  Why it’s REALLY okay to not feel as focused or motivated as normal right now. (7:22)

●  How to refuel your motivation and focus: get cozy. (13:50)

●  Why it’s essential to work within a space of beauty to inspire creativity. (15:12)

●  How to create your our professional nest. (16:49)

●  How to use your 5 senses to identify what you need to refuel your motivation. (18:00)

●  The difference between resting and checking out. (22:14)

Imagine what would happen if you just told yourself, “I’m not going to do that thing today.”

Episode 31 - White Women Don’t Turn Away - 4 Ways to Amplify The Voices and Work of Black Women

Subscribe Now on iTunes

Sometimes we must to throw the plans we have out the window, step out of our comfort zone, and go against the status quo to acknowledge what needs to be presently addressed. This is one of those times.

As women with thriving careers, you’ve already done the hard work of developing a skill set to be courageous. You have asked yourself tough questions. You have made the hard, but true, decisions to work more in alignment with what you value. You’ve developed a muscle for educating yourself and taking brave action, even if you’re unsure if you’re doing it right.

So let’s put this skill set to good use right now.

"There’s been a surge of racial protests throughout the United States, and frankly, it needs to happen. And right now, it’s time for white women – including myself – to lean in and listen deeply to Black Women and Women of Color who are qualified to be leading us forward", said Karlee.

This episode’s a little different - Karlee creates intentional space to step back, and instead amplify the voices of Black Women educators and leaders.

White women will walk away from this episode with a valuable framework to know your role in the essential conversations and racial justice that needs to happen. And in her in her usual, "make things doable" style, Karlee shares 4 resources for elevating your anti-racist journey including podcasts, books, movies, and ways to take action.

And if you're thinking, "Of course racism is bad, but I listen to Messy And Magnificent to learn about running a business/career that works for me, what does racial justice have to do with my career?"...then this might help:

Karlee explains why she choose to get simultaneous degrees in both Business Mangement and Community Justice - because in a capitalist culture, there is no such thing as “it’s just business”. The way we treat each other through our work is the way we shape our world. When we put space between our values and our work, we fragment our energy and create pain for ourselves and others

GOOD BUSINESS IS ABOUT COMMUNITY AND RACIAL JUSTICE.

Tune in to find out how to start having the important conversations required for all women to rise.

In This Episode You'll Learn:

●  Why NOW is the time to support Black Women Leaders and let them lead the conversations around race, equity, diversity and inclusion. (4:51)

●  Why good business, at its core, is about community justice. (6:52)

●  4 ways to educate yourself and be an active part of the racial justice that must happen for all women to rise. (11:00)

●  Why our discomfort about race (white women) is not relevant, and what to do if someone calls you out for doing/saying something harmful. (14:00)

Episode 33: Got Information Overload? How to get clear and sturdy so you can keep rising right now

Subscribe Now on iTunes

The message to "go big or go home" is rampant, outdated and unnecessary in our modern economy. It's the professionals that go deep, and intentional, rather than fancy and complicated, that are reaping the benefits of lasting professional growth in our new economy.

If you’re constantly feeling the pressure to move from one thing to the next, to the next, always doing the most - and that isn't working for you - it's because you are ready to learn a better way.

In our modern culture, women are not given room to digest what is happening in real-time and this is by design - a busy woman can't be nearly as powerful as an intentional woman is.

The truth is, growth is not about being “on” all the time. Just like the rest of nature, human women go through phases, too.

In this episode, Karlee throws it back to Episode 3 to go deeper into the 4 seasons of growth. You'll learn how to leverage your unique phases, helping you spot where you’re at right now and know which doable steps will take you to the next level so that you can clear busy work off your plate today.

Here’s your invitation: Even if you’ve heard Karlee talk about the 4 seasons before before, listen in - now is not a time for more information - it's a time for transformation and that happens when we go deeper into what works rather than trying 20 new things. Something from this episode will resonate with you, and you may find that you’re in a totally different phase of growth now.

Tune in learn to leverage your time and skills to bring you satisfying results that spark your best work and sense of self.

In This Episode You'll Learn:

Why Karlee implements a monthly “culmination week” into her practice. (0:48)

●  Debunking the “no pain, no gain” myth. (7:12)

●  Why self doubt shows up, and what to do about it. (16:24)

●  What to do when you find yourself at a loss for what your next steps should be. (19:04)

● How to protect your new good ideas so they can take root. (21:47)

●  The key to follow through: how to sustain yourself when you begin working on your project or idea. (24:51)

Episode 34: Recovering From Perfectionism: How Women Make Progress Without Sacrificing Their Joy

Subscribe Now on iTunes

To all my perfectionist sisters out there: can we just pause for a moment, and acknowledge that you're living amidst a global pandemic, massive civil unrest, and there's a good chance your job and home life have changed significantly too. All this is happening at once, and yet you feel the need to get everything done, done right, and done right now, right?!

So here’s a question for you: what’s the rush when it comes to the little stuff?

You’ve had to navigate all this new territory without anyone handing over a roadmap, guiding you on how to make progress. As a recovering perfectionist, this poses unique challenges and barriers to prioritizing your values, feeling calm and clear, and even letting go of the things that don’t require your attention. And brings up another question: Where can you afford to relax a bit without things falling apart?

In this episode, Karlee shows you how to locate that roadmap in your life to guide you away from needing things to be perfect and back to a state of clarity and ease. Karlee defines the “perfectionist” lifestyle and what it’s really all about (spoiler alert: it’s not about doing a good job), and what signs along the road indicate that you might be heading back into perfectionism. Karlee also talks specifically about where you can upgrade your life to understanding what needs your attention, and what you can afford to let go of.

Tune in to learn how to elevate from a state of perfectionist fear into what gives you nourished fulfillment, both on the job and off.

In This Episode You'll Learn:

●  What is perfectionism, and why is it NOT about doing a good job? (6:09)
