My name is Carly and I am passionate about living unapologetically from the core of my soul.

I have a sailor’s mouth, a romantic heart, and sometimes I don’t know when to stop talking. I’m passionate about lighting others up and finding happiness in every day. I also laugh a lot, often at things no one else laughs about. Yes, that means I get awkward sometimes but even that can be funny.

My “qualifications” come in the form of walking the walk of the talk I talk. I require of myself: authenticity, self-compassion, and limitless curiosity. 

My journey has led me to meet some of the coolest people on the planet, with new ones showing up all the time. As much as I love to connect with others, literally my favorite, I tend to spend a lot of time by myself, flowing in my own curiosity and creativity. I also love commas.


It’s my mission to give a voice to my real-time, soul-level processing and to embrace my vulnerability and authenticity to the limits of my comfort zone and beyond.


It’s my vision for Owning Authenticity that with each new breath, we arrive as a new version of ourselves – owning fully the lessons we’re learning along the way. Healing, growing, learning, and letting ourselves off the hook at every opportunity for the “sins” of our past self.


In both my life and my work, I value freedom, unconditional love, courage, vulnerability, intuition, and faith, as well as innovation and continuous improvement. I live and work through the perspective of a growth mindset, forever growing through what I go through.

You might be wondering why “Authenticity” isn’t on the list of my values, sharp eye you have! Allow me to clarify that in my understanding, authenticity requires freedom, unconditional love, courage, vulnerability, intuition, and faith, as well as innovation and continuous improvement.

History of Owning Authenticity

July 9, 2016 I stepped foot on my spiritual path and found Abraham Hicks

December 13, 2016 I lept off the cliff and left my corporate job in favor of allowing my path of entrepreneurship to unfold, allowing universal forces to show up for me. My first real act of faith and self-belief.

April 2017 – August 2020 Built and established my first business, an independently owned and operated grocery store in my hometown in Kansas.

August 2020 Began working with my first life coach, Melissa, and was introduced to my Natal Chart for the first time

March 5, 2021 Established my YouTube Channel: Owning Authenticity

April – July 2021 Spiritual Hibernation following the passing of my Grandma. Discovery of what I would later call “Radical Rest Theory

September 25, 2021 Began a challenge with myself to release a new video on my YouTube channel everyday. I wanted the practice, since I had no video editing skills to speak of at this point. After ~85 days I transitioned to uploading whenever I felt like it which is still pretty often.

January 2, 2022 Set the intention to livestream on YouTube every Friday in 2022. I livestreamed for 40-some Fridays before I switched to every other Friday.

December 7, 2022 Opened my second independently owned and operated grocery store in a small town 50 miles west from my hometown
