I’ve been waiting and waiting to share this with you…

About a year ago, I learned that the host of one of my favorite podcasts, The Startup Sessions, lived just a few miles away from my home in Portland. 

So, even though it felt a bit uncomfortable and a little fan-girl of me, I sent the host, Michael, an email to say thanks for creating such great content. Then I asked if he’d ever like to meet for coffee and tell me more about the podcast and his work. 

He said yes.

So we met and chatted about simplicity in entrepreneurship and about growing a business that suits your lifestyle. (These are two big things our coaching practices have in common.) It was such a rich conversation that I left that coffee shop wishing I could have recorded it to send to all of you. 

That’s why I’m excited to bring you something even better today. This month, I joined Michael on his podcast to do an official interview on how to simplify your business. And yes, we talked plenty about how simplification can help you create more freedom, fulfillment and growth.


Michael and I had a real, no-filter conversation – and we packed in plenty of actionable tips you’ll want to steal. Here are just a few of the topics we dove into…

  • Why business design and simplification are so important (5:36)
  • My greatest challenge in business (8:10)
  • Why consuming content is usually a bad idea (13:00)
  • How to decide WHAT tasks get delegated (18:15)
  • The benefit of having ‘focus’ (23:30)
  • Michael’s brilliant Project Parking Lot concept (32:01)
  • How perfection impedes progress (33:08)
  • How to design a business without "busy-ness" (43:05)
  • How team support looks in my business (48:58)
  • My favorite tools for simplifying (53:40)

So fire up iTunes, plug in your headphones and listen in. I know you’re going to love this interview – and hope it inspires you to take action and start simplifying your business today. 


With love,


P.S. Make sure you listen to the end of the interview because I’m giving away not one but two free gifts that you’ll really want to get your hands on. And one is time-sensitive so download the episode and listen in soon!
