My secret weapon

When it rains it pours. Know what I mean? I am thankful for the events Im working on, however sometimes they all seem to come at me at once. That in addition to being a mom, wife, friend, neighbour…it can almost be overwhelming. But I’ve got a secret weapon.

My tribe. My people. My peeps. I am lucky enough to have a supportive family (parents and siblings included) and an amazing group of people who stand beside me and behind me in just about everything I do. It’s hard not to feel confident moving forward through anything with this gaggle of groupies on my side.


When I plan an event, they are the first ones to sign up or share a post. When I’m taking on a tough workout, they’re my biggest and loudest cheerleaders. When I feel like it’s getting close to being too much, they remind me that I can take on anything because I am strong and capable.

I also have my virtual team on my side. These are the folks out there in the world who I look up to am inspired by. A few are my business coach Eleanor Beaton, the Guy in the Grey Hoodie himself, Todd Durkin, Spiritual Athlete Jill Payne, Mel Robbins, Gretchen Rubin, Instagram account lovingmyselfloudly, my Australian run buddy, Benzi…the list goes on. I find support and encouragement from authors and speakers, coaches and bloggers.

All of these folks, near and far, are my secret weapon to take on the world. What (or who?) is yours?
