Here is a brief overview of our conversation.

I recommend you listen to the more intimate audio to receive the full energetic connection of this transformational conversation.

I know you will enjoy Ande’s vibrant personality!


Please share a life-altering transition and transformation in your life.

Adversity is a wonderful teacher and personal trainer for thriving through life’s journey. While we’re in the midst of a perfect storm of adversity, all hands are on deck, and it can be hard to understand the learning and the knowing of such a difficult time. But adversity builds very important muscles… guaranteed to come in handy during every stage of your life. Adversity really is opportunity in disguise.

As I look back on the early days of my life, I see a lot of valuable lessons provided by Coach Adversity. While I was scrambling to keep my boat afloat, I didn’t realize at the time how learning to navigate these murky waters prepared me for the hope, faith, courage, resilience and tenacity I would need to thrive through bringing two beautiful boys into the world.  Listen to the audio for Ande’s harrowing story of how she lost 3 babies before giving birth to her two beloved sons.

I share this sad but triumphant story with you to illustrate how important it is to keep your eye on the prize and get the support you need to thrive in life. Don’t let adversity stop you from living the life of your dreams.  Everything we learned from ‘birthing babies’ we applied to future ‘potholes’ of our wild and wonderful journey together. Life is filled with opportunities in disguise… I encourage you to use tenacity, resilience, trust, faith and courage to thrive through your struggles in life while keeping your eye on the prize. It is worth it.

What are your favorite sacred feminine rituals?

Journaling in the morning; smudging and spending time at my sacred altar space.

How do you relate to your body, sexuality and power?

I love my body… I love my sexuality… and I’m still working on how best to move through the world powerfully while empowering others.

How do you embody being a sovereign Goddess?

Rolemodeling.I first embodied my sovereign Goddess when I founded Goddess Granola and gave myself the title Chief Executive Goddess. From then on it’s been a time of honoring and celebrating the glowing, glorious Goddess I am… and holding up the mirror for other women to see their inner glowing, glorious Goddess.

What was you Inspiration for your Possibility Partners TV Show?

I wanted to create a safe space for Entrepreneurial Adventurers to come, share their stories, their ruh rohs and their woo hoos – so we might all be inspired, encouraged, reminded, and embraced for having the courage to pursue our dreams and see the possibilities. Every week I spotlight an experienced entrepreneur who shares their adventure – how they came to be an entrepreneur – their challenges – their celebrations. Through this storytelling format, other new and seasoned entrepreneurs find inspiration and encouragement for their entrepreneurial adventure(s).
