From the time we are young, we’ve learned to start dreading Monday mornings around 5pm on Sunday night. “Sunday Funday” … “Working for the Weekend” and phrases like that just reinforce our deep hatred for the “first” day of the week.
WHYYY do we put so much stress into Mondays?? Monday didn’t ask for it! And honestly, because we have had these chronically negative thoughts and emotions about it, it’s making everything just SO.MUCH.WORSE!!!
**THIS IS A MINDSET ISSUE!!!**
What if you never fully realized what day of the week it really was? What if Monday was just another day of the week? What if we could just flip the switch an turn off this chronic thinking that Monday was ‘bad’?
I’d like to help you feel better about Mondays NOW, so here’s 3 tips for switching your MONDAY MINDSET!
- If you have to set your alarm, make it something soothing. Birds chirping, beautiful classical music or a fun song that makes you feel really good. When you hear the alarm, say “I’m so excited for today!” (even if you don’t believe it yet! you’ll get there!)
- During your morning routine, talk yourself into having that great day. Talk aloud or in your head saying things like, “My drive to work is going to be smooth and fun!” “I’m going to crush that meeting today!” “I have plenty of time to get everything I need done.” Again, even if you don’t totally believe it, we’ve GOT to start re-programming the chronic thinking that’s not been so helpful all these years. Trust me.. see what happens.
- If a moment of contrast occurs, like a kid spills their cereal on the floor, take a deep, calming breath, and laugh!!! Laughter will immediately raise your vibration, calm the energy of the room and help you see the situation in a more positive way. Every moment where we can ‘flip the switch’ like this is moving the momentum of your day towards ease and fun!
Try these Monday Mindset Hacks and let me know how it goes. I know my Monday is going to be awesome, even though it’s the first of two travel days in a jam packed week. MINDSET!
Ready to MASTER YOUR MINDSET with ME? Awesome. I'm teaching a 4 week RETAIL MINDSET MAKEOVER class and I want you there! But only if you are really ready to TRANSFORM! Here are the details & waitlist sign up:
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.

My deepest desire is for you to have a successful boutique that supports your passion and life. In the work that I do with clients, I not only lift them up to fly, but I also help them figure out what needs adjusting in their business plan (that's the "consulting" part of what I do)!
