How my yearly income became my monthly income...

How my yearly income became my monthly income...

I have something to confess: I made more money in the month of December 2017, than I did the entire year of 2015.

I love talking about making money. And as an entrepreneur, I’ve made a lot of money. But in 2015, I didn’t. I almost cried when I actually SAW what happened in the numbers.

You see, I started my mobile boutique The Fashion Truck in early 2011. It took off with massive success. I opened a brick and mortar version in 2013 and slowly had a downward spiral into the depths of my own mind. Turns out, I don’t really like sitting in a store (even though I had the cutest store ever!).

In 2015, I wrote my book, The Ultimate Boutique Handbook, and consequently became deeply depressed. My energy became really dull and super scattered- I was teaching illustration classes, doing styling and closet clean outs, hosting a massive food truck festival and, oh yeah, still running my 2 boutiques.

I WAS A HOT, DEPRESSED MESS.

Looking at my expenses from that year, I see $8.99 at Tedeschi over and over. You know what that was? The cheap bottles of Barefoot Chardonnay I’d drink to ‘feel better’ and ‘relax’. (Hint: they made my depression worse.)

In hindsight, I was running. Running quickly away from the fact that maybe this wasn’t my end-all-be-all dream life. Maybe I wouldn’t have the pack-n-play in the back room of the store for my future baby to take naps in while I re-did the window displays. Maybe I wouldn’t buy a house in the town I grew up in and live down the street from the store. Maybe what I wanted when I was 17 years old, wasn’t actually what the now 32 year old self wanted at all…

Believe it or not, my entire revenue in my business that year was a whopping  $38,993.77. Yep, the woman who was making well into six figures the previous years suddenly nose dived. I paid myself $12,066.66 (I’m not kidding, these numbers are directly from my profit and loss statement) and luckily I survived with the help of my now fiancé when it came to splitting the bills. 

But... SOMETHING HAD TO CHANGE.

Mid-2015 I decided to sign up for a group coaching program where the coach talked a lot about this thing called ‘mindset’. I had never heard of it before, but I was interested. I liked the idea of shifting thoughts, and a this point, I’d try anything.

I went hard and fast... instead of running away from my fears and problems, I ran at them with every technique I could find. Most of 2016, I even had my own mindset coach who pushed me on every tiny trigger that would come up.

By 2017, my entire life had COMPLETELY CHANGED. I was off the anxiety meds, sober, traveling the world, making money while I slept and utterly in love with my life.

Cut to December 2017 when my revenue was $45,073.51…FOR THE MONTH.

What's shocking to me is that once I set my mind to change, it took me about 2 years to go 360. Only 2 years!

It’s time I teach this to you. Mindset has become the most important topic I teach in 2018.

Mindset is the first 3 weeks of my big Six Figure Blueprint program. I see the women in Six Figure Blueprint that have gone full force into it make the most incredible changes- no joke. Hitting goals before the end of the month (then beating it by $3000 in the last 3 days!), hiring housekeepers and nannies, letting go of past beliefs that held them back in their new boutique business, BEING HAPPIER and seeing that their lives CAN be AWESOME while running their businesses…

I need you to get in on this. ASAP. I’m over seeing the “mindset stuff” pop up in The Fashion Truck Tribe, and I bet you’re over it yourself. I’ve decided to give you a taste of my second book and the EXACT steps I took to transform my life in a 4 week Bootcamp-style course called the Retail Mindset Makeover.

In 2017, I did a ton of trainings on my spiritual side: I got Reiki level 2 certified, I became a May Cause Miracles facilitator and completed my Spiritual Teacher Training with Gabby Bernstein's Spirit Junkie Masterclass. I flew to Sedona to meditate in powerful vortexes, have shaman healings, go to Native American medicine wheels and dive even deeper into the work I'm here on this planet to do. I took up Kundalini yoga and recorded transformational meditation tracks for my membership site.

Whatever you believe, mindset work is the deepest level of business training you can study. It's a lifelong journey of self love. "Where there's self love, there's no fear. And where there's no fear, there's no anger." Or what I like to say... no worry.

I'm ready to teach you how to tame your worry, master your mind and create more peace inside you and your business.

Does that sound like something you'd like in your life?

The 4 week course will open for registration on March 22. It will be the only time I teach this course LIVE and IN PERSON with you.

Do You Need A Business Partner?

"Would you rather feel overwhelmed or peaceful?
Of course you'd rather feel peaceful.

Would you rather like to feel energetic, and adventurous and excited about something? Or bored?

You must move toward what you you've become... or you become complacent and dissatisfied.

To take action from a place of split energy is always unpleasant.

So let's say you're focused on something that's not working. To dig in and try to offer more effort and to think harder about how your going to get it done, just causes you to pile more engines on in opposition

So the rule of thumb that we would apply, if we were in your position, is that we would follow the good feeling thoughts."

- Abraham Hicks

This past weekend I watched a video of myself from 2014. Talk about having a pile of opposition showing up all over my face.

I looked terribledepressed, like I wasn't even there... straight up dead behind the eyesSeriously, look at the screenshots from my videos!

I was 3 years into my business and I had what everyone on the outside saw as major success. On the inside I was falling apart. In those 3 years I had crashed my first fashion truck (my business), developed crippling reactive arthritis for 3 months where I could barely walk or move, was chained to my desk all day, everyday and felt like my business was at a total stand still. 

On top of it, I was SO worried ALL.THE.TIME. about everything- money, customers, social media, buying, money, family, my relationship, what the hell I was doing with my life. Seriously, to have spent three years riding the highs and lows of my business had made me a complete wreck. Can't you see it in my face?

I spent much of 2014 depressed and overwhelmed. I didn't know how I had gotten to that place, but it sucked.

I felt alone in my business and wanted to take a vacation from my life and run away.

I wish in that time, I had someone to help me.

My family, my boyfriend with a business degree, my friends... they're all amazing listeners but the real deal is that they aren't business consultants, they're not life coaches... and they just didn't understand what being a boutique owner felt like.

In that time, I needed someone to simultaneously lift my spirit up, tell me how to adjust my business to keep hitting my numbers and be my ally to pull me out of the lonely, overwhelmed situation I was in.

In 2015 I ended up on a woman's email list who sent emails that resonated with me. I loved her message, I listened to her audios and felt in my heart that she was the one who could help me figure out what I was doing with my life. 

I signed up with her as my coach and wow, how quickly my life changed. Changed in the best ways... I got happier, I felt lighter and a year and a half later I'm the happiest and most creative I've ever been in my life.

By saying yes, admitting that I needed help, I got exactly the help I needed! Help from an expert to get me from where I was to where I am now. Her 1:1 support was like the business partner I never had and so desperately needed. She knew about things like manifesting, journaling, online marketing, Facebook Ads... all these things I never had the energy or awareness to deal with before.

I now live a lifestyle that I LOVE and have a business that LIGHTS me UP! Every three months I travel to a new spot that I've co-created with my boyfriend, I have the most delightful clients who get massive results, the relationship with my family is only about being family, and new opportunities flow to me with ease (very exciting things coming soon!)My business is easy, makes perfect sense and I am more centered and focused than I ever believed I could be.

You don't have to keep filling your head with doubts, questions and struggles. You don't have to be alone in your business. You can have clarity, alignment, and forward momentum, right now. It is possible for you! 

When you work with me in my 1:1 Boutique Consulting Program, I am your best business partner ever.

I help my 1:1 clients make these shifts so they can take winters off, they can spend more time with their kids, buy the car they most desire, have freedom to take vacations and love their business... with ease.

Who are the types women who work with me in my 12 Week 1:1 Boutique Consulting Program? 

They are:

  • Ambitious & Creative
  • Have had their retail business for 2-4+ years (although I have helped many of total newbies!)
  • Ready to do the work to have the life they desire
  • Happy & Positive
  • Not scared to invest in themselves and their business
  • Know that where they are now isn't working and something has to change

Maybe that list sounds just like you? And perhaps you can relate to how I felt in my third year in business, lonely and ready to ask for help? 

Right now I have 4 spots open for my 1:1 Consulting Program. I'd love to invite you to schedule an appointment to connect with me if you feel like what I've said speaks to and you're really ready to create change in your life and business. I know these spots will fill up by the end of the month so if you're reading this and feeling excited, click that button below and let's talk!

Here's to making lots of friends and making lots of money!

My $35,000 Plan

My $35,000 Plan

I only watch very specific television shows, and one of my favorites lately is ‘The Grinder’ on Fox. Rob Lowe (total hottie!) plays an actor who for many years was a famous TV lawyer, and now he’s returned home and works at his family’s real life law firm in Idaho. He never passed the bar, but his TV show antics seem to always work in real life.

Anyhow, the episode I watched last week was all about how he decided that to be able to solve the BIG case, he needed to get wrapped up in a side story. That the ‘side story’ would be able to distract him enough so he could connect the dots and figure out how to work the angles on the BIG case.

Of course this got me thinking about how my mindset practice is my FOREVER side story, helping me solve the issues that come up while running my coaching business. I spend between 1-4 hours A DAY on journaling, tapping, drowning myself in audios and reading. I’ve unlocked blocks I didn’t know I had, solved problems in my relationships with others, and gotten the clues to what’s holding me back from the next HUGE levels in my business (I hit $35k this month already. $40k is July’s goal!!)…

And now I’m helping others do the same. Last week on a call with a client, she said “I spoke to a total ideal client, but she probably can’t afford my $4,000 rates.” I immediately stopped her… 1. Because her rate is $5,000… and 2. Because she was putting her own limiting beliefs about money onto this woman she had talked to for 30 minutes.

I gave her the assignment to write down all the reasons she is capable of charging $5,000 and why someone would pay her $5,000. Guess what? Two days later she signed a $5,000 client!

In business, a person’s side story should ALWAYS be mindset work. Lots to do, do the mindset work first. Got nothing to do, do some mindset work.

So many coaches are throwing around the term "mindset work" but not telling you WHAT that MEANS or LOOKS LIKE! Let me be specific about what mine looks like so you get an idea of what it looks like for a $35k month:

I focus on ONE GOAL and became laser focused on that one goal.

I wrote the goal down every day— and the goal has a deadline.

>> My morning routine:
1. Wake up, be aware of how I feel.
Listen to Abraham Hicks good morning rampage.
Write down how I want to feel today.
2. Then move on to journaling around my goal. What it would feel like to have achieved the goal, what I would do when it happened, how I would act, and then I close my eyes and visualize myself with the results.
3. Then I listen to Steve Seibold’s positive self talk on self esteem and personal development. I kept myself around high vibe people and things.

>> During the day:
I’m aware of my thoughts and feelings. If something negative comes up, I stop, write it down and journal and tap about it. I also listen to more Abraham Hicks and subliminal messaging music.

>> Before Bed:
I go back to my ‘how I want to feel today’ notes and once again, focus on my goal and the feeling that the result of that goal is going to bring. I journal more, tap if I need to, and end the night in meditation. As I lay down in bed, I start to think about how much I appreciate everything around me: the bed, the air conditioning, the pillows… all of it. And I drift off to sleep with some gentle music.

Hope this helps YOU have a $35k month!!
xo, Emily
