I’m so excited to share this brilliant business diva with you today.
I first met Allison at a networking event in San Francisco. I instantly noticed this tall, gorgeous, stylish woman when I arrived at our event.
Throughout the weekend, I learned more about Allison, her business journey and her amazing work helping purpose driven women tap into passion and joy in their life and business. Allison is the Business Joy-ologist and I hope you enjoy meeting her as much as I did.
Q – What does Self-Care mean to you?
Play. Nourishment. Self-awareness. Flexibility.
Q – Was there a time when you did not take care of YOU and how did it affect your life & business?
Absolutely. You know those moments when you are so into whatever you’re doing that 3 hours you say “I’m hungry … just 5 more minutes” and then 2 hours later you say the same thing? I’ve had my share of those. Only to be left feeling stiff, irritable, and incapable of producing quality work. My poor husband usually gets the brunt of my hangry irritability if he’s around. Poor guy.
Q – What are your top 3 Self-Care tips that women can incorporate into their lives?
Tip 1. Take consistent breaks for stretching, booty shaking, fresh air … even when you’re on a roll. It will ensure you stay on a roll … instead of getting irritable and hangry.
Tip 2. Try not to ignore sexual pleasure and surrendering. It can be easy to get into masculine mode when running your own business. One of the best ways to stay creative and inspired is getting that sexual energy flowing. This can look like sex, self pleasuring, breath work and meditation specifically designed to move this energy and essentially anything else that get’s those (creative) juices.
Tip 3. Friends/Support System. Basically anyone that encourages you to be the best version of you and gets + supports what you’re up to. It gets really easy to stay up in your head creating all kinds of stories, and talking to a girlfriend, fellow entrepreneur, mastermind partner or coach can make all the difference in the world.
Q – What’s something (fun, silly, surprising) that we can learn about you?
I’m like a big, happy dog when it comes to road trips and boat rides. The fresh air and wind, view and the feeling of being alive are just too good!

When she’s not helping purpose-driven women discover & express ALL their gifts in a thriving business they l-o-v-e you can find her swimming in the nearest (hopefully warm) ocean, having deep conversations with strangers at a coffee shop (with whipped cream on her mocha) or cuddling up with her man.
