Traci and Kayla are life transformation experts, who also happen to be mother and daughter. They will motivate and inspire you to turn your dreams into plans, succeed in achieving your goals, and transform your life from the inside out. Together they educate through courses and coaching that can be found in their shop: The Inspired Lifestyle.
When it comes to changing your life, it is essential to stay motivated towards your goals while feeling hopeful in your results. Expect the kick in the pants required to motivate you towards taking action, while receiving gentle reminders of hope along the way to keep you consistent. Not only will you see tangible results, but you will overcome the behavior patterns within yourself that stop you from achieving more.
Traci and Kayla are passionate about helping you feel confident in yourself and experience fulfillment in your life no matter where your starting point is. If you have a dream, we know how to help you make it happen.
Their combination of psychology, youtube, and motivation is the missing link in the self help section.
They are the perfect collaboration to ensure your success.
We are passionate about helping our clients see results happen in their lives. We recognize that changing your life is a huge undertaking and there are different phases to that process. Individually we are the expert in part of the transformation, but together we are the whole package.
When we work together, we are able to guide you in the entire life transformation process. We help you get clear on who you are, what you want, how to get it, and also guide you through the process when you get stuck or need help accepting yourself. When you change your beliefs, patterns, and lifestyle habits not only will your transformation last, but your results will continue to grow even after our work together is complete.
The top two reasons people fail in keeping results in their lives are that they don't commit to make their changes a lifestyle, and that they lose momentum & consistency. In order to achieve your results and keep them, it will require 30% strategy and 70% structure in your choices and actions.
THIS IS WHAT MAKES US THE KILLER COMBINATION TO ENSURE YOUR SUCCESS.
Traci is your Trauma Informed Guide & Structure to keep you accountable in the consistency of your commitments. She will also be your teacher to help you understand the thoughts and feelings that influence the behavior that stops you from implementing change and seeing results.
Kayla is your Lifestyle Designer & Strategy to help people just like you design and get detailed in how to spend their time each day to ensure the success of their desired results. She will be the inspiration and motivation in your journey to get your routines, habits, and lifestyle choices moving.
We collaborate to ensure that you are getting the most out of your experience with us. When you are ready to change your life, investing is necessary. We want to make sure that with any investment you make with us, you are getting the whole answer, and not just parts of it.
This is what makes our courses, offerings, and collaborations so impactful. Goal setting alone leaves out the understanding of how to overcome self sabotage behavior. Only focusing on the big picture leaves out the practical steps in how to get there. You need dreams AND ambition to experience success. It isn't enough to believe in your dreams, you need daily action steps. It isn't enough to be in routines and good habits without meaning behind it or direction.
If you struggle with the combination of these, WE are your answer.
My success turned lots of heads and I followed the best advice I was ever given: to launch my own company. I officially Co-Founded my company "TRACI & KAYLA" in San Francisco, alongside my business partner.. my mom - Traci. Today I write, speak, and inspire anyone who is ready to reinvent themselves and transform their life.
I moved my life to New York City to pursue my highly coveted career as a fashion model. While I loved strutting the catwalks there was something in me that wanted more. My ambition took me all the way to the prestigious firms on Wall Street where my financial experience grew servicing the elite of Manhattan.

"Traci and Kayla made me LOVE my 2-hr daily commute. Yes - I look forward to it now. I put many of these on replay as they are not only hilarious but chalk full of impactful, inspiring nuggets of truth to live by. Love these gals."
"Traci & Kayla are simply amazing. I was recently introduced to them and immediately fell in love. The topics they discuss, their approach, the WAY they explain things - it all makes perfect sense. I've listened to 18 episodes in the past 7 days and with each one something had resonated with me. Some episodes make me want to cry because they get it. I'm so happy and grateful for their podcast and all that they do!"
"I wake up to these two every morning as part of my morning routine driving to work. They have helped me to learn to be more cognizant of what my intuition is telling me, and help me to start my day on a positive note. I feel like I'm talking to friends every day."
"These two lovely (and witty!) ladies have become such an essential part of my daily routine. I think it is incredibly important to surround yourself around positive energy and good vibes and this channel has it all. Their stories are hilarious and they have the ability of really making you feel powerful and connected to yourself."
"This show makes my heart so happy!!! These two amazing women know how to tell stories, make you laugh, and inspire you in just 30 mins!!! You can't walk away from listening to them without grinning ear to ear!!! The energy is so contagious... If you wanna get REAL with yourself, If you want to be a better person, and If you love to be inspired...These ladies are it!!! I love you ladies...My life will never be the same and I THANK YOU from the bottom of my heart!!!"
"This podcast has become my new favorite routine in the morning. I love all of the funny stories you tell, as well as the inspiration I get by the time the episode is over. These ladies have so much wisdom and love, it is such an honor to be part of something like this. It feels like I'm hanging out with them in a coffee shop while we share funny stories and talk about how to transform our lives over a cup of joe (liquid gold). There are some episodes that have brought me to tears: this is amazing! LOVE you both! Keep shining!"
