I work with people who know that they’re supposed to be making a big contribution but for reasons they can’t quite pin down, they’re just not doing it. I help to light that inner spark that sets their revolution in motion.

When did you stop
waking up to the teasing
brambles of the sun?
When did you stop
enjoying the feeling of mud
between your toes?
When did you stop
playing with the elements,
Who told you it was impractical
to spend hours daydreaming in
a clear blue stream?
Who told you it was to be this
way or that?
Who told you your voice is
Who told you your song
is not to their liking,
and therefore to none?
Who proclaimed leisure
useless and empty of
passion or purpose?
Who told you it’s wrong
to want that and not this?
Who made evil out of your Desire?
Who said you cannot build castles
in the ground and
told you that all these obstacles
Look around you.
Everything is a dream.
It is a large collective dream made out of
all of the individual stories we are weaving
into it, as one large consciousness.
Our stories, what we give credence to,
what we give power to,
what we choose to believe as “real”
becomes a story that ultimately weaves
itself into that collective dream of All.
If you don’t like the stories of the collective dream,
if they make you suffer or feel
then change the story.
Choose to live the story of
love, enoughness, connection
oneness, unique truth,
devotion, purpose & impact.
All of the stories of the one, collective dream,
that humans have been creating and weaving into it
all of these years, the ones that are small,
that make you feel bad,
are just that.
someone’s story that they created and thus
lived and assumed as truth or fact
and then placed into the collective dream
that we are all creating and contributing to
second of the day.
All of the shoulds and the should nots…
are just that— a dream.
A piece of someone’s story.
Here is your choice:
What is the story you want to place into the collective dream of All?
What is the work of art you want to create from your life, lived?
The canvas is blank.
The dream is ready to be dreamed.
You are the artist and the creator.
What is the dream that you want to dream in the story of your life?
What is the story that you want to live
and then place into the collective?
One of fear, judgment, separation, repression,
self-hatred, and violence?
a dream that not only changes YOUR story,
but once placed into the collective dream of All,
begins to transform the dream of All to one of contraction
into one of Expansion?
Have you ever placed a drop of blue dye in water?
The droplet begins to merge with all of the molecules
and ribbons of blue begin to permeate the water until
the whole glass of water is now blue.
That is what it is like
when you change your story.
When you consciously choose to step out of
Nightmare and instead,
step into a dream of your own making,
where you feel good and expansive and IN love,
and connected to your
Let your heart fill your creation.
Let that creation be your dream.
Let that dream be the drop of blue
that permeates the entire collective dream of All
and CHANGE the collective nightmare of humanity…
into a Dream of Expansion.
Choose a different story.
And you will see all of humanity
change around you.
If you say you want to change the world,
this is how we start.
For every thought, feeling & story that you
unconsciously take on and live out
influences your actions,
influences the collective dream of All
and each action can contribute or not contribute
to the nightmare.
Choose kindness, compassion & love.
That is how we change the world.
That is how we change the world.
Here’s the deal.
I’ve never done this before.
And I wasn’t planning on doing this at all.
But after getting so many emails about it,
I’ve decided it and I’m super excited to share with you
that I’ve extended the application deadline for the
Rise Mastermind until Friday, August 8 at midnight EST.
Well after Monday’s deadline for application, we got
a ton of emails from people who still wanted the opportunity
to sign up. They’ve been hearing “around town” about the
amazing women in the mastermind and about how powerful
the Rise Mastermind has been for past participants who
are getting results like making 5 figures in the first 4 months
of their new business idea or getting products they created
picked up for national attention & distribution etc…
And it’s clear you are one motivated, committed bunch of badasses.
So I want to reward those of you who are really serious about
making your dreams, your purpose and your impact happen.
One of the things that I’ve noticed in working with over
4,000 entrepreneurs in the past several years is that the ones
that end up having amazing results, like my mastermind client,
Amy, who through the work she did in the mastermind, transitioned
out of her day job to a private practice that made $100,000
in her first year of business, is that they all have one thing in
common—wanna hear it?
They’re afraid, but they do it anyway.
So right now, you might have been on the fence about applying.
And your brain starts to come up with all sorts of questions like:
“Yeah, but how much does this cost?”
“I’m moving soon, and I have the money to invest for a massive return
on value in my life and business, but shouldn’t I be careful with my money
because of the move?”
“I’m too overwhelmed with the programs I’ve already bought, let me
finish those first and then I’ll do this next year”.
“I’ve been burned before by other coaches and programs, how do I
know that this isn’t history repeating itself?”
“Can I trust myself to do the work?”
“Who are the people in this mastermind? Will they truly benefit me?”
Before you know it your Soul which is a YES YES YES to signing up,
has been totally shushed and pushed down and your brain has taken over.
And your brain, unfortunately is also filled with limiting beliefs, fears and
excuses for why you shouldn’t move powerfully ahead in your business.
So who are you going to listen to you?
Your limiting beliefs, fears and excuses?
Or your Soul, which is the GPS to the life and business you were meant
to embody and lead with on this planet?
Thought leaders and change-makers take risks.
They are afraid, they have doubts, but they listen to their Souls and LEAP.
If you want to make impact with your work and become one of the most
sought-after thought leaders in your industry, you have to act like one.
People who flounder for years and never get anywhere always have
tons of reasons, excuses and “logical” explanations for why they should
just keep doing what they are doing and not invest in their businesses.
If you’ve been doing this–there’s no shame in this.
I used to do the same.
But my question for you is, are you really going to stand by again
in the sidelines, for another day, another month, another YEAR while
you stay stuck, frustrated, struggling and in fogginess about the very
thing you were put on this planet to do?
The very thing you are alive for?
We’re more than halfway through the year now.
By December you could have a thriving business that is aligned
deeply with your soul and your great work in the world.
You could be enjoying seeing your impact reach far and wide
and really start to see the difference your work is making in the world.
Or you could be exactly where you are right now and keep on doing
the same thing. And then January will come around and everything will
be the same. When you could have been out of this frustrating, fearful
place months ago had you joined the mastermind and gotten deep support
from your fellow Sisters and me, a master coach with laser-focused insight.
It’s time to wake up my love.
Step out of that slumber.
The world cannot afford to have you sleeping.
Life is short and every day is precious.
Do you really want to be just comfortable?
Or do you want to be alive, changing the world and helping others
with your great work, feeling deeply fulfilled and connected?
And I don’t know of a safer, more loving container of amazing women
to take your business and life to the next level in, than that of the
Rise Mastermind. This year’s women are BAD-ASS and are already
supporting each other in the forum, networking and making connections.
So listen–I’ve told my team member Michelle to stand by for the next
3 days to be there to answer all of your fears, doubts and questions
about the Rise Mastermind.
We want to help you.
And if there is something Michelle can’t answer I will personally
respond to you myself.
Because I can’t stand to watch you put yourself aside for one more
day. It’s time to Rise, my love.
Quit the BS excuses and come take my hand.
I’m waiting for you on the other side of this threshold, with a warm hug,
a group of smiling supportive women and one of the most powerful
containers for stepping into your power as the thought leader you
were mean to be, that exists.
I’ve just come back from a week long trip to see my newborn nephew,
Henry, in Baltimore, Maryland. He is so precious and I miss him already!
And I’m about to head off for a much needed month to live & work in nature
in the beautiful mountains of Panama (where I hold my mastermind retreats).
But before I hit the road I wanted to let you know that today is the
deadline to apply for my Rise Mastermind.
The response to the Rise Mastermind has been amazing.
Within 24 hours of announcing the program was open for applications,
we had a flood of applications come in, from some absolutely amazing entrepreneurs.
We have a group of incredible change-makers and thought leaders
in the program! Women who are really committed to changing the world
with their unique gifts, who are building businesses that are truly aligned
with their purpose and who really are here to take it to the next level
and rise to the top of their game.
Already they are supporting each other on the forum, networking
and getting to work. Are you the missing piece in our puzzle?
We have only a few spots left now in this intimate mastermind circle
of high-caliber women on a mission and I don’t want you to miss out.
And if you’ve been on the fence, then I’m talking to you right now.
Listen, love. You can keep doing what you’re doing.
You can keep buying the books that promise you “foolproof templates”
and keep purchasing the super popular programs that everyone else
but how has that served you?
If you’re like most of the people who have come to work with me,
you’ve been doing that for a while and here you are months or even
years later, and you’re still not making the impact you want to be
making… feeling frustrated because you know it’s time to really
be visible so that you can make that difference and rise to the top
of your game in your industry…
but you just can’t seem to find the blueprint or template that will
make that happen.
That’s the thing, love.
There is no template that you can buy that will show you how to
step into the role of powerful thought leader, that you were
meant to be in.
The most successful entrepreneurs and thought-leaders are that
way because they created their own template for themselves.
And that’s the work we are going to do in the mastermind.
We’re going to get really real, help you work on the inner game
that you need to have to make the impact you know you are
here to make and you’re going to get some solid advice on how
to grow your business in a way that is aligned with your Soul…
so that you can Rise as the thought leader & change-maker you
were born to be.
This is the work that has helped my clients do things like:
- Make $100,000 in their first year of business
- Have a $10,000 month in the first 4 months of business
- Be asked to speak at global peace summits
- Be published in major news publications & get tons of press
- Transition from a very successful business to a personal brand
- Give a speech to thousands of people that was met with a standing
ovation at a very popular entrepreneurial event.
If you’ve dreamed of impacting the world in this way.
If you’re ready to build a magnetic, thought leader brand that actually
makes a difference in the world and that you feel good standing behind
because it is 100% a reflection of YOU.
Then today is the last chance to apply.
Click here to apply now.
Here’s a recap of what you get in the program:
- Monthly 1:1 coaching with me in an intimate group setting
- World-Class Thought Leader Guest Mentors
- Your Own Private Mastermind Circle (hand selected by me)

you’ve always known you were meant for.

Application deadline is TONIGHT.
I’m sure as you read that subject line, you’re thinking,
“what the heck does my business have to do with Lisa’s
Oh, but it has everything to do with him.
I’ll tell you why…
When I was in my mid-twenties, I made a decision to give a chance
to a man that my body had always been a no to.
I heard rumors that he had a major thing for me for 2 years.
Still, I had always rebuffed his pointed looks and his attempts to flirt
with me when I was out with friends and ran into him because the idea
of dating him had never really entered my mind.
For some reason, 2 years later, I decided to give him a chance
and date him, even though when I look back now, my body and
internal wisdom kept giving me a clear no.
But I went against myself without realizing it and dated him.
About 6 months into the relationship, not only was he borderline
emotionally abusive on a regular basis, but he also cheated on me.
He chose to never tell me.
And I didn’t find out about this indiscretion until a year later.
And I only found out because he left his emails open on my computer,
and forgot to close out a long email from the woman he had cheated
on me with, who was furious with him for how he treated her.
(I didn’t blame her honestly!)
Now, I had never been cheated on–I had always picked really good,
loyal men to date who were always crazy about me and had good hearts
and this was the first time I had ever had an experience like this.
I remember when I found out I felt like the ground fell out from underneath me.
Still, I went against my better judgment (once again) and gave him a second chance.
Another year went by.
He ended up moving in to my apartment for a few months while he searched
for his own job and apartment. But 6 months went by, I was suddenly paying
for almost everything and he still had no job or apartment to speak of.
Then one day, he left his cell phone at my house and he called me from
another phone, asking me to check his voicemails for an important message
about a job he had recently gotten as a teacher.
When I went into his voicemail to retrieve the information from the message
for him, , I stumbled upon the wrong voicemail and found out that he was
having an affair with one of his students!
Cheating on me, once again. Yup.
At that point I ended the relationship and chalked it up to a lesson learned.
Shortly after that I met the next person I would date for 6 years.
I remember in the beginning of dating this new person, I could feel all of
my trust issues wanting to come up.
What if this new person cheated on me?
Could I trust them when they were talking with their female friend on the phone?
What if this happened to me all over again?
If I had picked this deadbeat boyfriend before, could that mean my “picker”
was off and that I had picked another cheater again?
How could I be sure that I wouldn’t be cheated on again?
But I also realized that if I chose to bring my old experiences from that
bad relationship into the new one…
- I would be miserable, paranoid and suffering in the new relationship
all the time and would never get to truly enjoy it and experience it fully.
- I would create a bad experience for my new partner and never give the
relationship a chance to succeed because I’d be projecting all my old fears
from previous bad experiences onto the new relationship.
So in that moment I decided I wanted to choose to feel good.
I told myself, I am NOT bringing my baggage from the last relationship
into this new one. I refuse to be jealous.
I choose to trust.
It was as simple as making the choice to trust.
And I did.
And guess what happened?
My new partner was loyal and totally different than my cheating ex.
I got to enjoy that relationship fully.
It was one of the relationships where I grew the most as a person.
And even though it ended 6 years later, we amicably parted ways
and still to this day remain very close friends with a lot of love for each other.
I never would have grown and had the experiences I had in that relationship
had I brought in the baggage from the old one into it.
And I’m telling you this story because there are definite correlations
between my story about my cheating ex-boyfriend and the success
of your business.
As I’m currently talking with and enrolling people who applied for the
Rise Mastermind, sometimes they share a fear with me…
And it’s a fear that I have found to be pretty common in many entrepreneurs
who are ready to play a bigger game and who have invested in their businesses
before through other programs or products.
Even though they feel highly called to the experience, they tell me
they had coaching before or did a program already and they had
a bad experience… or they didn’t end up DOING anything with the
information they invested in and they’re still stuck where they were before.
They are afraid to leap into what their heart is telling them to do,
because they keep being afraid that what happened in the past,
will happen again.
Or that they will not put in the work, just like they did last time.
They bring all the old “baggage” of their old experiences and project it
into the new experiences they are trying to have.
And when they do that, they become too afraid to take the leap,
and never give themselves the chance to truly flourish and go for their dreams,
because they are still stuck in the experiences of the past.
My love, this is a form of self sabotage.
Because what ends up happening is that you begin to create
a negative experience for yourself in the future before it has
even happened. And since we are powerful creators, guess what
will happen if you bring that baggage?
You will literally create a bad experience once again, no matter
how hard that program or coach tries to make it a good experience for you.
If your attention is on the fear of repeating a bad mistake again, then
that is what you will create.
And I don’t want you to keep doing that to yourself, because I want
you to be able to say yes to experiences that could be great for you,
whatever those experiences might be. (not just my programs)
So here’s the deal:
Next time you feel called to do something, join something or work with
someone, think of my cheating ex-boyfriend story and the decision I
made to NOT bring that baggage into the relationship after that.
Don’t bring your past baggage into your future business decisions.
It will weigh you down.
And you’ll never get to truly fly on your journey forward into the
life and business you really want to create.
In fact it will probably weigh you down so much that you’ll never
get off the ground.
So here’s the deal–if you’ve been sitting on the fence about applying
for the Rise Mastermind because you’re afraid that it will be just like a
bad experience you had in the past, or you’re afraid you won’t do the work,
like you did last time…
I invite you to feel into your heart and ask her/him what it wants.
What is your Soul called to do?
If you’re ready to create a positive experience for yourself, where you’ll
have a coach fiercely dedicated to your success, a group of amazing people
who are cheering you on and loving accountability so that you keep your
commitments to yourself…
then I invite you to apply now for the Rise Mastermind.
We’ve had more applications than available spots now and at the rate
that people are enrolling, I think we’ll be sold out in a week.
Click here to apply now.
The application deadline is August 3rd.
Choose to trust.
Choose your experience and it will be so.
You are the creator of your life.
A few months ago, I said something to one of my clients
during a retreat that left her with her mouth open.
I then wrote a Facebook post about that very thing I said to
her and it incited QUITE the conversation.
But even though it shocked my client, and shook up the people
who I wrote to on Facebook, my client proceeded to have
a major breakthrough a week after I said “the thing” to her.
And I had my inbox flooded with emails about how much my
Facebook post had helped those who read it make big changes
in their businesses that ended up bringing in more income.
I’m sure you want to know what this “thing” that I said to her is.
Don’t worry, I’ll tell you in one second.
But before I do, I want you to know that this “thing” is the one thing
that I think keeps so many coaches, experts and entrepreneurs stuck
at a certain point in their business, spinning their wheels and unable
to move beyond that ceiling of income and impact they’ve reached.
And it’s so important, that it’s one of the core principles of the work
I do with my clients that gets them results like making $100,000 in
their first year of business or being asked to present their work at
global peace summits so they can really make a difference.
Okay, fine, fine, I won’t make you wait any longer.
Here’s what I said to my client:
On that day, she was sitting on the couch during a retreat and we
were talking about how to increase your visibility in your business.
We started talking about the best types of emails to send to your
clients and how often they should be sent, in order for her to get more
people to open up her emails.
She said to me “isn’t there some blueprint or template that you can
give me that will guarantee higher open rates. I mean I know
there are templates that the marketing gurus say work,
can you give me a few of those templates?”
I looked at her and I said “sure, there are lots of people out there
who are selling you templates that guarantee more people will see
your stuff and that might even convert into more sales…
I even know many of them myself (I’ve been studying marketing
and how to become more visible online and offline for years)
and I could give them to you….
but I’m not going to”.
She blinked twice and looked at me with her mouth agape.
“Why?” she asked me.
“Because that is not what is going to get you the type of
business with massive impact and the type of income you want.
That’s not the stuff that makes powerful thought leaders that
change our world as we know it, and that’s the work you came
to me to do, isn’t it?”
There was a long silence as she let it sink in…
“Well, what IS, then?”, she said.
(She was about to have a big breakthrough, so naturally she
was resisting me a little, this is totally normal, I got this ;-))
“YOU.” I replied firmly and with deep love.
Okay, so you might be confused right now.
So many people tell you “just be you” as a pat response to
any problem you have and so naturally, I can hear you thinking
“yeah, but what does that MEAN??”.
I’ll clarify for you in a second.
You see, my client was experiencing a symptom of a common
“disease” I see every day in this entrepreneurial world today.
An obsession with blueprints and templates.
Just look at common everyday marketing.
Almost every guru that is trying to sell you something guarantees
you some blueprint or template to make it “easier”.
Now there’s a good reason for that.
Psychologically speaking, our minds like the idea of not having
to do that much work and just following someone else’s template
so that we can just sit back and watch the money roll in by
following some simple, easy, step by step process.
There’s only two problems with that.
1) The guru who is selling you this template/blueprint is usually
selling you something that worked for them and a handful of
their clients who are similar to them.
There’s no customization to you and your uniqueness.
That’s why most of my clients come to me already having
spent tens of thousands of dollars on other popular programs
and have nothing to show for it in terms of increased income,
visibility or impact with their businesses.
2) Following someone else’s blueprint is never going to allow
you to step into the type of success and impact you know you
are here to make. And in the long run, it’s actually going to make
things harder for you. Take it from me and my clients. Obsession
with templates led me to almost tank my business because I
ignored my own internal guidance.
While I am not totally against blueprints (I think they can be very
helpful in the beginning of your business) what these gurus who sell
you templates and blueprints fail to see is that after a certain point in
if you really want to start playing a bigger game…
if you really want to stand out in the oversaturated market of “experts”
out there and start playing the same kind of game that some of the
people you really admire are playing.
You’ve got to ditch the templates.
And you need to build a unique, thought leader brand that cannot
be replicated because it is a perfect reflection of you and there is
no one out there like you.
Building your own brand on your own terms, in alignment with what
you are here to do on this planet–that’s nothing a blueprint can teach.
And that just so happens to be what I specialize in.
Aligning you with your mission and helping you move past the things
that are holding you back from taking it to the next level, so that you can
have more of what you want, which includes helping others (my people
are all humanitarians at heart).
THAT’S what is going to take you into playing a bigger game.
And if I know you, you’re here to really make a difference in the world
with your unique gifts and your mission. Playing small or being stuck
means your message won’t get out there, not in the way you want it to.
It’s doing this work that has helped my clients achieve amazing things.
Take my client Amy Fortney Parks, for example.
When Amy first came to me, she was a child psychologist working for
the school system. Her business was filled to the gills but she was
barely getting by and was not feeling that passionate about her work.
A year later, working with me to transcend the blueprints and instead
build something totally unique to her, we removed her limiting beliefs
around what she could charge and what she could do in her biz,
and she’s made $100,000 in her first year of business.
She’s loving her work more than ever and is quickly becoming a top
parenting coach, being sought-after for her expertise.
So here’s the deal, love.
If you want to learn how to break through to your next level of income
and impact and you’re tired of following tired, overused blueprints
that make you look like every other cookie-cutter expert out there…
and you want to build a powerful, successful business where you are
the leader who gets to help many, many people transform their lives
and leave a legacy…
