Confessions of a Tiny Panamanian Artist With a T-Rex Heart



This is totally embarrasing you guys. I don’t know how April (my business bestie) convinced me to do this. 


Watch my confessional video before I change my mind about sharing it publicly + delete it forever.



Now it’s your turn to make a confession. Spill open in the comments. Bonus point if you feel like a loser for sharing. That means it’s probably a good one. 


And I promise I won’t think you’re a loser. I mean, did you see me dancing in my onesie?


Thanks for sharing. Love you even more when you do.

Got Questions? Sure You Do



Whether you’re thinking about joining Operation World Domination or OWD & B-School, we bet you have questions + doubts + hesitations + that feeling when the plane reaches maximum altitude (and your seat is right next to the toilets).


We had millions of questions when we were considering investing that much money in one swipe. Picture intense nail-biting + bank account staring + long conversations with our husbands + ice cream-binges.


The process is intense.


The decision is scary.


We know.




You might even be recycling your temptation to join from last year or even the year before that. Your thoughts are probably racing: “Everyone is doing it, I don’t want to fall behind.” “Am I ready?” and “What if I already know the material and I just need to apply it?”


We know the drill. That’s why we’re hosting NOT ONE but TWO Happy Hours to spill the beans about all things Operation World Domination AND B-School, to help you make an informed decision.


Is it a good fit? Maybe it is. Maybe it isn’t. You won’t be able to resolve your brain chatter until you ask. And we’re not suggesting you ask your grandma. Ask people you trust + who know the ins and outs of being a girl boss.


Pick your date! Save your seat!






On the call we’ll tell you everything you need to know about our mastermind + B-School. Plus we’ll stick around for a laser round of Q&A in the end, so come ready to tackle us with any fears you might have about hopping the fence.


It’s scary. We know. This IS a BIG deal, so we’ll come prepared to tell you the truth about EVERYTHING…even if it’s not what you’re hoping to hear.


We’re not planning to through glitter in your face + lure you into buying something that’s not for you. We truly want you to make the best decision for yourself.


Hope you join us for one or both HAPPY HOURS. Come early. There’ll be dorky dancing.

PS: The first call is happening TODAY at 3PM EST. Save your seat right here!!!

Win a Scholarship to Operation World Domination



Have you heard? My friend April Bowles + I have created the most amazing program called Operation World Domination + before you start making excuses about not having enough time or money. hear me out!


Operation World Domination was built with you in mind: the entrepreneur who would rather create than promote her business, who would love to make $30,000 from her next launch or $150,000 this year (not millions and millions), who doesn’t want to run a team of 28 people but would love an assistant and to hire out certain projects like product photography or videography, who wants to figure out how to apply marketing concepts to HER type of business.


The creative who has trouble focusing and jumps from project to project, and still doesn’t have a signature product or service, who wishes she could find her perfect biz bestie, and who needs hand holding to make it to the finish line.


You might still be thinking that you don’t have the money to invest in this kind of program.


First, that thought comes from a place of scarcity and if you’re running your business with that mindset, it’s no wonder that you aren’t making the kind of money you want to be making.


Second, I’ve got some great news for you.


Click play! Or keep reading.



To recap, April + I are offering a full double scholarship to Operation World Domination, for a creative entrepreneur AND their bestie.


If you win, you (and your friend) get:

  • 8 weekly mastermind calls
  • an invite to a private Facebook clubhouse
  • the coolest mug in the galaxy
  • 1 year subscription to Sunday Society
  • 1 year subscription to Life is Messy Bootcamp

6 Tricks to Make Your Pricing a Non Issue

6 Tricks Pricing


PRE-S: Operation World Domination is coming up. I’m co-hosting a live Happy Hour call on Feb 22 at 3PM EST with my partner in crime April Bowles. Bring your questions + favorite cocktail. It’s totally free and should be so much fun. Save your seat!


As a full time artist, I’m a big advocate of charging what you’re worth. NO! not swapping work for exposure. I mean trading work for money honey.


This isn’t a cute hobby folks, it’s how I pay for groceries (and cute shoes).


But I know putting a price tag on your work is scary. What will people think? That I’m full of myself? Will I turn them off? Will they go to Walmart instead?


Today I’m going to give you 6 things you should do that will make your price a non-issue.


To recap what I talked about in the video:

  • Define your ideal client’s problem
  • Show the solution
  • Focus on the results
  • Make a clear offer
  • Add testaments to your awesomeness
  • Remove risk   

Do these 6 steps + see how price becomes irrelevant.


Thanks for watching.


If you’re ready charge what you’re worth (without pulling your hair out) + step into your zone of genius, check out Operation World Domination: A Mastermind for Creatives & Innovators.


I know you can’t possibly buy everything you see on the internet. But! If you’re planning on treating yo’ self + investing in business acceleration this year, we promise you, this is it!
