I am so excited to get this out into the world.

I didn’t just decide one day to write this book – the events and circumstances in my life begged for it. You see I’ve got some serious ‘street cred’ when it comes to Sh*t Going Sideways – but I always find the light. Read on, I’ll explain.

I help women (and men) choose joy through soul-centered navigation

It was out of my own deep personal loss and challenges that I developed the secrets to survive life change and loss so that those navigating life when sh*t goes sideways would remember their inner guidance system, trust their connection to the Universe, and find joy within the chaos.


So, go all in. I do.

In this book I set out to bring you into my world while helping you shine your light on your own. I’ve naturally been one to find the cracks of light, even in the darkness. Sure, it has not always been in the exact moment when life feels like it’s crumbling, but it happens somewhere along the path back home. In these pages I share some light stories that I hope will make you laugh, but I also want to bring you deep into some of my heavy, Universe-tilting losses. I share this all with love and the wish that you will see yourself in these stories, you will remember your inner wisdom, and you’ll find your own joy.

Use this book to reconnect with all the parts of you and to expand your views and understanding of your physical and nonphysical worlds. These exercises and reflections will encourage you to be your own guru, your own guide, and your own touchstone. They will also remind you that we are born into families and communities and that we thrive with dynamic and healthy relationships. We are stronger together. Lean on each other but drive from a place within. We are here to raise our frequency together, to share the lessons, love, and joy. We are here to support each other.

What readers are saying:

“When Sh*t Goes Sideways is a refreshing and enlightening kick in the ass. Through expression of her own personal stories of tragedies, obstacles, and setback the author provides outstanding strategies for attaining a life free from self-imposed blocks so many entrepreneurs place on themselves – myself included. It is both smart and logical mixed with the perfect amount of mysticism that is sure to inspire even the most skeptic critics. The self-reflection exercises included in each chapter allows the reader to jump in with both feet and make this book their own personal guide to clarity. For those willing to truly take a journey to freedom from self-imposed limiting beliefs, this is a MUST read.“

“When Sh*t Goes Sideways is a breath of fresh air! The book interweaves personal experiences with the tools needed to find your Self, with a capital “S!” I found Ms. Tripodi’s approach to be honest and accepting. I identify with my Catholic faith and Ms. Tripodi’s steps allow me to maintain my faith while exploring other parts of my identity. The steps won’t replace but can only strengthen my faith AND my spirituality. As a mother, she takes us places that we’ve all been and places that we’d never want to go but through her honesty and with her intuition, she gives us the power to connect with who we really are. I like that I can revisit the chapters and the steps and discover different pieces of myself. One of my favorite lessons in the book is “You are responsible for the frequency you broadcast.” (Tripodi p.68) With the help of When Sh*t Goes Sideways, I can continue to work on what I broadcast to others, and to myself. Definitely a great way to start a new year!“
