New things on the horizon



New podcast logo…new website design! Super excited to be able to move forward and be more involved and interact with all of you!

I truly appreciate all the support you guys give me! I’m going to be integrating a new section on my blog where you can ask me questions regarding business, marriage, motherhood, ANYTHING and it will be confidential. I will answer two questions a week via blog or IG live.

I’m having a hard time picking a name for my new column. HELP!

Should I call it: Life with Yolie

or  simple:  Ask Yolie


Let me know below!

Monthly spotlight: Call me Christine


My first monthly spotlight is on a really talented lady named Christine.

When I first started my blog, I used my personal selfies and never thought of hiring a professional photographer. When I came across her instagram profile, I knew two things; her pictures were fun and that I lacked the courage to pose for pictures.

Yes, I’m that girl that can post 100 selfies on social media but it was a struggle to put my professional headshot on my business card! After hyping myself up and browsing a couple of local photographers, I knew I loved her style and I had to contact her.

Before our first shoot, I was SO NERVOUS. I had never done this before and all her subjects always look so relaxed and professional. Once I met her, I realized I had nothing to be nervous about, she made me feel comfortable and walked me through the whole process. She even bought me ice cream, how can you be nervous eating ice cream?

If you’re in the San Francisco Bay area, I highly recommend her! You can check her out on her social media handles: 


Yes..there’s a new episode

Guess what? There’s a new episode on my podcast. Wait, you didn’t know I had a podcast? Well, I do. It’s called Mom, Wife & Boss Life. I would love for you to listen to it and let me know your thoughts, if you love it please write a review. I will truly appreciate it.

So episode 25 is a recap of an event I attended “Tim Storey Live with Sarah Pendrick of Girl Talk Network”. It was motivating and it was great to network with everyone.

Successful woman


I just stared reading Lori Harders book “A Tribe called Bliss” and it’s a must read for females! I will give you guys the full review once I finish it but I can already tell it’s a good one by what I have already read.

Social media is our life filter

yolanda villa podcast

I have come to the conclusion that social media IS our life filter.

I always talk about how I wish I had a filter on every day so I don’t have to do my makeup. But I guess that’s what social media is. Showing people the good and keeping the ugly to ourselves. Sometimes we forget that behind a social media post there IS a real person!
The grass isn’t always greener on the other side. So don’t worry if your grass isn’t green right now. Keep working your land!!

Just thought I’d share that!

Happy Friday. Enjoy your day and hug your loved ones!

YESS!!!! You go Yolie!

the unfiltered wife-2Yes, that’s me patting myself on the back. I started the behind the scenes work to start the new series of my podcast.  Drum roll please!!! Say hello to my new baby


A new look on how we view female entrepreneurs. This is the real deal. The Unfiltered Wife podcast!

This new series was my first target goal BUT I needed to change the direction of my career and put myself out there first. I needed to put myself in an uncomfortable situation so I could get comfortable.

In a few days I will be letting you guys in on who I will be having as guests. I’m super excited and seriously can’t wait for you guys to listen to it!
