Every Friday I am going to feature a woman that I adore. They exude all the qualities of an Alpha Female and I want to dig into their lives to get some nuggets of knowledge to help us all live happier, healthier lives balancing life & work.
Definition of an Alpha Female
An Alpha Female is a powerful and assertive woman. Her confidence is due to being an intelligent and intellectual problem-solver. Being an Alpha Female is a State of Mind based on choosing ambition and being proud of it. She strives for a happy and healthy work/life harmony.
She is the brightest star in her constellation. When an Alpha Female stays true to their authentic selves and their missions they shine. An Alpha Female puts herself first so that she can fill up her cup and then have more energy for her friends, family, and coworkers. She strives for synergy with the world around her. She knows that work/life harmony is found by staying true to your priorities and what makes you happy. She is never complacent about striving for better and nurtures relationships with all the people in her life.

What do you think of the definition and how are you an Alpha Female?
I love the definition. Striving for synergy in the world really resonates with me. I’m an Alpha Female because I’m constantly striving to better myself and everyone around me I think it’s important as an Alpha Female to lift others up and provide value and love to the lives around you. I cheer for the success of others as well as myself.
What are you most passionate about?
I’m most passionate about helping women breakthrough limiting beliefs and habits. I know what it’s like to feel stuck and think, “well, this is just how I am”. Once I figured out that I could change anything I didn’t like, I felt unstoppable. I love helping women discover their unstoppable power as well.
What does work/life harmony look like for you?
Work/life harmony looks like weekends without work. As a business owner, it’s hard to stop working. I’ve learned to listen to my inner voice that says “Take a break”. On the days my schedule is booked, I make sure to breathe deeply and relax throughout the day.
Share with us a time when work/life balance was out of wack?
What was your aha moment that taught you it was ok to take care of yourself first.
Oh gosh, self-care is so important. I once scheduled 9 clients for one day. I had no room to breathe in-between sessions. It was too much. By client number 6 I was anxious. After the client left I sat in meditation for 10 minutes before starting the next session. It worked miracles! I was calm and focused on helping the next client.
How do you nourish yourself?
I meditate and do self-hypnosis. It’s so important to take the time to nourish ourselves so that we can nourish others!
What is your weekly fitness routine like?
I enjoy yoga and weight lifting. I workout about 3 times a week, which works really well for me. I love the way I feel after a great workout!
What are your daily habits for winding down at night and reducing stress?
I unwind by taking a bath and locking the door to keep the kids out! Before bed, I say affirmations and make a mental list of what I’m grateful for. Taking the time to just sit with my thoughts and do this helps reduce my stress tremendously.
What are some pain points of being an Alpha Female that you have to problem solve for?
I struggle with the amount of tasks I have to do per day. I don’t like to leave anything unfinished. The reality is, not everything can be completed in a day. I’ve learned to break longer tasks up. The more I do this, the more comfortable I get with leaving something for tomorrow.
What is your definition of happiness?
Happiness to me is living a life centered around love and pushing out any fear based behaviors.
