The Power of Truth Telling:


  Listen On Any Platform


Truth is something that we say we want.  Until it makes us uncomfortable.  Or those around us uncomfortable.  

When I first decided that I needed to move away from my full-time job, I had some hard decisions to make.    Despite the fact that I loved some of the things I was able to access and create in that position, there was no avenue for growth.  

I had to lean into the faith that I would find the support I needed to launch my own business.

I always saw it as something different than a traditional interior design business.

I had become accustomed to helping people that wouldn’t necessarily be hiring an Interior Designer or Decorator to help them create the vision that they had for their home.  I knew that I could use technology to reach more people and help them create spaces that inspired them without breaking the bank.  When I took the leap, I only had a fuzzy image of what that might look like.

And as the Universe always does when you allow it to, it brought me the perfect mentor to move toward a life of “health, wealth, and joy” as my guest’s program promised.

Business coach, Tobi Fairley is an unapologetic truth-teller.  She believes in living a life aligned with who she is at her core.  She transitioned from an award-winning full-service Interior Designer to a Business Coach for designers and creatives like myself.  She has always been a visionary.  Bolding embracing life has kept her at the forefront of both the Design Industry and the rapidly evolving use of technology to do more with her expansive skillset.

Tobi Fairley is an innovation igniter, thought architect, and one of

the leading voices on reimagining what it means to run a successful,

creative business in an equitable and sustainable way.

As an award-winning interior designer and business consultant with over

23 years of experience helping high-achieving, creative professionals

take their lives, their companies and their spaces to the next level,

Tobi holds degrees in Accounting and Interior Design, and a Masters

in Business Administration (MBA) from the Sam M. Walton College of

Business at the University of Arkansas. She was awarded the prestigious

Walton Entrepreneur of the year award in 2009.

Though she made her name as an Interior designer and Business Coach,

today Tobi helps Designers, Coaches, CEO’s and Organizations create

more health, wealth, joy and impact through her programs, top-rated

podcast, and inclusive communities.

When Tobi’s not running her high-end residential interior design firm,

leading her online membership community for ambitious creative

professionals, DesignYou, or recording an episode of her top-rated

podcast, you can find her working on her upcoming book, thinking deep

thoughts about how to change the world, painting, or curled up with a

few good books and spending time with her family and 2 pups. Tobi lives

in Arkansas with her attorney husband and teenage daughter.

We follow the evolution of her personal business path full of golden nuggets of wisdom.  She drops some serious truth bombs along the way.  She reveals the moments that led to important mindset shifts that forged the path to who she has become as she creates opportunities for other creatives as she visions forward.

Tobi’s boldness in her use of color and pattern, which she is famous for, translates into her passion for helping others succeed.  I was a fan long before I downloaded her workbook which transformed my life and business.

You will be inspired (and maybe get a little teary as I did) when she shared how she faced the hard truths about herself in the process of supporting her daughter through the evil waters of Middle School and mean girls. 

 It’s a gut punch of self-loathing transformed into self-love.

In this episode you will learn:

  • Why the broken business model had to be drawn for a young businesswoman to create a successful life beyond the “business.”
  • The strengths we have as women + creatives that aren’t part of that original success blueprint.
  • The fallout of following the wrong blueprint for success.
  • The mindset shifts helped Tobi transform her personal success blueprint.
  • The critical things her daughter taught her about herself
  • How the difficulties that she was helping her daughter through prepared her to use her voice in a way that aligned with her personal values.
  • What walking the walk REALLY means and what that looks like as a creative business owner

We laughed. We got teary-eyed.  We found power on the other side of this brutally honest conversation.

I wish everyone could have seen the light in Tobi’s face as she saw her current self through the eyes of 8-year-old Tobi.  

A magical moment of what it looks like when you are living a life aligned with your truth.

It is a wish I have for everyone, especially the extraordinary hearts that listen to this podcast.

Because I know that YOU are seeking a life that is aligned with your deepest truths.

Sometimes we need someone to guide us.  Sometimes we need to be brave and embrace our own truths.  That is why I chose the essential oil roller bottle “Brave” as the oil of the week.  See the details below in the essential oil section.

Liquid courage doesn’t have to be (and shouldn’t be) alcohol if we are telling the truth

I am so grateful to Tobi for the honesty, transparency, and inspiration that she provides in this episode.  Please go find her on all the socials linked below.









"What other people

think of you is none

of your business."




“If you can’t be comfortable with people not liking you, you’re not going to get very far in trying to change major things in the world.”
