It takes courage, my love.

What does it take?

….to dream big and choose action over fear

… to work smarter and harder than you ever dreamt possible

… to have passion and never apologize for it

… to find balance when you’re riding the carosoul, afraid you’ll never catch up

…. to be authentic to your soul, your values and your beliefs

… to lend a hand, when it’s the last thing your capable of doing

… to reach out, when your prides too big seek it

… to be wife, mom, friend, family, employee, entrepreneur, disciple

… to hold on tighter, have faith and choose gratitude….always! 


All these things take courage, my love, but in Christ, all things are possible.

“When work, commitment, and pleasure all become one and you reach that deep well where passion lives, nothing is impossible.”  ~ Nancy Coey


Start Today.


You’ve heard it before, but I’ll say it again…

  • what a difference a day can make
  • if I look back to a year ago, I would never have thought I’d be here
  • If you would have told me this, a year ago, I would not have believed you!

Truth: the common thread through all these sayings.

If I look at my own life or even the lives of my friends, the changes, growth and happiness that have transpired is one years time, is absolutely incredible.

One year ago…

  1. I was working a job a felt trapped in, too afraid to reach for my dreams…yet again and “fail.”
  2. I began to pray consistently, about everything… no matter how Big or Small
  3. I decided to lean on God alone, to guide me through the transitions and show me my path
  4. I took things day at a time and found happiness in each and every day, whether it was a small success in business, a great day with friends or a peaceful walk with my boys.

And Today, I can honestly say….

  1. I have never been happier and wake up every day smiling
  2. I have never been more content
  3. I no longer obsess about the future or where I want to be
  4. My anxiety and OCD, have lessened their stronghold on me
  5. My friendships, faith and marriage have strengthen and deepened to levels I never thought possible
  6. My priorities align themselves and reveal when things are out of whack
  7. I truly believe, 1 day, 1 talk, 1 pray or 1 meal can change my attitude and outlook
  8. I saw clearly, for the first time, why things fell the way they had and learnt more from my “failures” than ever
  9. God revealed His awesomeness, once I gave up control and let him!

Sometimes, the tiniest seeds harvest the greatest successes.

So, today, I dare YOU….

Plant a seed today.
Plant what matters to you.
Do not let fear, doubt or anxiety stop you.
Just do it, nurture it and watch it grow.

Taking a Breath.

This last week, I’ve felt scared; so out of character, I wasn’t quite sure what to do with the feelings. At first I let them fester, only to build and lead to a full out melt-down.

Before Kailey Michelle Events, I had a business face. I approached work with my black belt in Brand Management and followed a strategic list of steps, methodically memorized, to get from here to success. I never worried about how I was received, how I should market, how long it would take me to book business. I knew the drill and the “controlled planning” kept fear at bay.

Through the re-birth of my business, I lost that business face; more like smashed it to the ground. I shed the mask in favor of authenticity; me, front and center. While it’s beautiful in the making, reality leaves me shaking in my boots.

  • “Will people like the real me? my heart!?”
  • Will I book enough business?”
  • “Will people be turned off by public declaration of faith?” 

It manifests, I know. Couple that with everyone else’s opinions/ advice on what you should be doing,  and the mind begins to spin, in 50 different directions. 

And before you know it, your driving in the car screaming for God to calm you down.  Well, I would think!  😉 

And then He answers, through the honest words of a respected man. (He knew I’d listen)

“The rush to get to the next step makes us ignore the value of being where we are – seeing, feeling, experiencing.

We are so afraid of being left behind that we make everything a race.  Is it any wonder the stress we all feel to perform?  To create magic instantly?  When you build your business on speed of delivery and ultra-responsiveness you ignore the natural flow of creation.

There is theater to creative business.  If what you do requires three acts, there is no sense forcing it into one.  You rob your creative business of the arcs all great stories are built on.  Make no mistake, you, your art and your creative business are storytellers.  Selling the Cliff Notes version only gets you clients that have no appreciation for the nuance and necessity of time.

Take a breath.  Have your creative business take a breath. You cannot make it happen yesterday, but tomorrow will be more than worth the wait.”

Thanks Sean.  I needed that.
