Values

Living a 100% authentic life means being 100% clear on your values.

Inclusion: I reject racist patriarchy (and all its oppressive manifestations), and commit to fighting the harm it causes through my work, privilege, and money.

Growth: I never stop learning about myself and others, which necessarily means owning my faults, admitting my mistakes, and listening with an open heart and mind.

Courage: I am committed to living out my values even when it’s emotionally, financially, or otherwise. That’s the heart of being a Gutsy Boss.

Social Justice

When you support my business, you are aligning with a vision of a world built on the principles of justice, equity, and human dignity. I am committed to running an inclusive, anti-racist business.

I recognize that as a white, well-educated, middle-class, able-bodied, and neurotypical woman, I hold much unearned privilege and power. I also realize that I’ve knowingly and unknowingly upholding racist, sexist, and otherwise oppressive ideas in the past. And I know that it’s my responsibility to challenge the unjust framework of a racist patriarchal society.

I am always engaging in the process of unlearning my own racist patriarchal conditioning, and in developing anti-racist beliefs and practices both personally and professional. I aim to better educate myself so that I can continue to align my values with the way I live my life and run my business.

Every human deserves a life that feels safe and secure.
