My Own Struggle With Mental Health

My Own Struggle With Mental Health

Since it’s World Mental Health Day, I thought it was appropriate to share a stigma about my own mental health. Over the past 20 years, I have suffered from Panic Attacks and Anxiety caused by well, the unknown. I go into a place where nothing makes sense to me - my...

The Feeling We Are Chasing With Things 

The Feeling We Are Chasing With Things 

In my meditation this morning it came to me, “why are we always seeking new things, like furniture, cars, clothes?" Because these things make us feel good about ourselves in some way. When we have those things, we have feelings like “I made it, I am of value, I am...

Becoming An Entrepreneur – false starts and nagging heart

Becoming An Entrepreneur – false starts and nagging heart

Clients, friends or first-time acquaintances sometimes ask, "how did you become you?"       Well, that's a loaded question full of ups, downs, and circles of course, and I think what they are really wondering is how did I create my life, my business and my way of...

Island Life. The move to more freedom, nature and creativity

Island Life. The move to more freedom, nature and creativity

Well, I am sure you've witnessed the big move Ryan and I took to Vancouver Island. Some people have asked, "what was with the move, were you always planning on moving to the island, what influenced your choice, how is life over there?" So in this post, I will sum it...

A New Truth

A New Truth

I’m white and privileged beyond my comprehension. I need to evolve that comprehension and enact it. I want to preface this post with this event page: http://makennaheld.com/leadershiprecipelive/ I had NO IDEA we would dive into white privilege, colonialism, racism,...

The Importance of Partnership

The Importance of Partnership

I believe nothing happens without it. I’m starting to realize that life only works through partnership. I don’t know anyone who ‘did it alone’ without the help of another. I used to say (and maybe I forget and still say it from time to time) that “I did this, or that”...

The Gifts of Discomfort

The Gifts of Discomfort

How a 10-day trip to Nicaragua pushed my buttons and pushed me further.  I just spent 10 days in Nicaragua with Chantelle Adams and 10 change-making women. My mission was to film (alongside my partner Ryan, naturally) their volunteering journey in the rural village of...

IF YOU’RE NOT MAKING SIX FIGURES IN SIX MONTHS, JUST CHILL

IF YOU’RE NOT MAKING SIX FIGURES IN SIX MONTHS, JUST CHILL

Don’t believe everything you see or hear. Growing a company isn’t as easy as you think—and that’s ok. Money and me. We’ve never really had the best relationship. I guess it’s because I never really cared for it. I lived my entire 20s in pure “experience mode”. I did...

Fixating On My “Fatness” Is Light Killer

Fixating On My “Fatness” Is Light Killer

On the long road to knowing, owning, and sharing my light, I’m getting a little better at seeing where the major potholes are, and how they slow my progress. Lately I’ve been seeing that fixating on my “fatness” is a big one. What’s a light killer? It’s whatever...

5 “You’re FIREDs” led to 4 dreams coming true

5 “You’re FIREDs” led to 4 dreams coming true

Where does a story begin and a story end? It’s really tough to say when it comes to my life because each story has led to the next, to the next and on I go. I keep evolving, changing and getting more clear on what I would like my life’s work to be.
