What does your typical day look like and how do you make it productive?
I prioritize self care, knowing that if I’m feeling good and energized, I will be more productive. I wake up early, between 3-4 am. I meditate, go for a beach walk or a surf, do a weights workout, eat an organic, whole foods breakfast, have or practice Vaginal Kung Fu with my jade yoni egg. Or both.
My primary work is writing and creating video and podcast content. I do this and take breaks outside throughout the day. I surf, or lie on the beach to harvest my Vitamin D at high noon, and spend time tending the massive fruit forest I’m cultivating as a self-sufficient garden.
If I’m feeling a creative plateau, I will give myself, or have my partner give me, some orgasms. Sexual energy is creative energy and if we’re not creating babies with it, we can consciously use it to make things in our daily lives. This is what I teach, and this is the pathway to creative genius!
How do you bring ideas to life?
Through my vagina! Because sexual energy is creative energy, by revving up that energy and consciously using it as a power source, we tap into the manifestation power of the universe.
What’s one trend that excites you?
People waking up to the truth of our reality and questioning the nature of what we are being sold. Human sovereignty is where it’s at and I love seeing people claim and take their power back.
What is one habit of yours that makes you more productive as an entrepreneur?
Daily sex or self-pleasure. I go straight to the source!
What advice would you give your younger self?
If you are ever feeling lost, find a way to be of service. Help someone, volunteer and give your gifts to life in some way. This re-aligns you with the flow of the universe and puts you back on track.
Tell us something that’s true that almost nobody agrees with you on.
We don’t need “experts” to tell us the truth about our own bodies. WE know our own bodies and how to heal them, better than anyone else does. True healing comes from within, not by outsourcing our power and disowning our innate wisdom. We have all of this inside of us and can tap into it at any time.
As an entrepreneur, what is the one thing you do over and over and recommend everyone else do?
Have more sex. And better sex. We can use this energy to shape our lives. This is the biggest secret that is hidden about sexual power—that it is our creative energy source. All of my work is about tapping into that energy and using it as super fuel.
What is one strategy that has helped you grow your business?
Staying loyal to my truth and vision and not caring what anyone thinks. I’ve had a lot of ideas that are before their time. Being a creator and innovator means that no one has done many of the things I have done. This requires courage to put myself out there and be the first of my kind. I’ve pioneered the entire genre of holistic sex and relationship coaching, and put the practice of Vaginal Kung Fu and jade yoni egg weight lifting on the map. And had a blast doing it. I love to create content that is fun, playful and provocative.
What is the best $100 you recently spent? What and why?
A new bikini. Getting daily Vitamin D on as much skin as possible is the best health hack going. I keep the hours between 11am and 2pm open every day. These are the prime hours for Vitamin D gathering. I go to the beach, do a midday meditation/power nap and lie in the sun. I body surf or surf. I make sure to get 30 minutes of raw sunlight on my front and back sides.
I feel totally regenerated and renewed for the second half of my day.
What is the one book that you recommend our community should read and why?
Honestly, I don’t read other people’s material anymore. I’m more interested in sourcing my own original ideas and creating, rather than consuming. Truth is within all of us, and my work is about helping people to uncover it, and leading them back to it so THEY are their own authority.
What is your favorite quote?
“If you’re not scared sh&$tless, you aren’t aiming high enough.”

I’m all about the idea of up-leveling and constantly evolving into the next level. Grow or die. For me, the litmus test for growth is whether it excites me or not. If it turns me on, it’s the right path.
