Do you ever wonder why you do certain things, and why you don't do certain things?

On our path of personal growth, most everything can be traced back to our core values. When we do things that are aligned with our values, we experience more freedom, flow, magic and joy. When our values have been compromised by ourselves or by others, that's when we feel disconnected, riddled with dilemmas, anxious, even lonely, and stressed.


Can you succinctly name the top 2 that you live by?

Any values you'd add to the list beyond synonyms of existing ones?


Although I embrace 80 of the above values listed, my top 2 core values of freedom and integrity. Ever since I made the choice to live by my values, moment to moment, regardless of what others may think, my life has been so simple and effortless.

Your values are your internal compass that guides you to:

  • make decisions quickly without regret,
  • step into uncertainty, trusting that what is to come is even greater than anything you could have foreseen, and
  • wake up fulfilled that you are the best version of yourself and making a difference in other people's lives!


There are certain things in business and life that you are just not meant to do alone. You can, but its' so much better to do them with people by your side, championing you on.

As an overachiever, or as a human being in general, one of the hardest things in life is to ask for help. I know. I never asked for help. Ever. Until I learned (the hard way) that it doesn't make me weak, incapable, imperfect or less valuable of a person to ask for help.

What a paradox: asking for help made me even stronger, more capable, and more valuable to my clients and to the world. Go figure!

If you need a boost in discovering, applying and living by your values, book a Clarity Session.

With infinite grace,

xo, Ella
