I'm going DEEPER with this whole 'YOU'VE GOT TO PAY YOURSELF" idea this week. Because really guys, you HAVE to start taking a salary from your boutique business... and this week I'm going to tell you WHY you MUST pay yourself! I feel like I'm trying to convince boutique-land to adjust from a very old martyrdom mindset, to a "money flows in and out of my business with ease and grace" mindset!
Here's my top 3 reasons why you really MUST start paying yourself:
1. We have to evolve into a modern relationship with money! Te internet has changed everything but our ideas haven't- we still get caught up in the 'work hard, make money' mentality. Let's get excited to unplug from the old and plug into the new concept of money!
2. Most flows as energy-- when you don't pay yourself, you won't be able to spend it and they cycle of in/out energy flow gets blocked.
3. We love to be rewarded as humans!! Even a small amount to allocate to yourself to get your nails done or a dinner out can feed the positive flow and give your brain a pat on the back for putting your all into the business!
"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 terrible, depressed, like I wasn't even there... straight up dead behind the eyes. Seriously, 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.

Here's to making lots of friends and making lots of money!
Last Wednesday, we took off for 3 months in Antigua, Guatemala. It had been about 6 weeks since I had flown (after logging a flight every 2 weeks during the fall!) so taking off somehow felt like a new experience.
Or maybe I was just seeing it through new 2017 eyes?
When we took off from Boston Airport… and made it above the clouds to the bright blue sky and blinding sun, I realized that taking off on a flight is so similar to taking off in business.
Starting and growing a business is truly like flying, defying gravity. Defying what you’ve been taught, told to do… and not staying stuck on the ground with everyone else.
It all starts with boarding the plane. It’s exciting and you are committed to taking that trip now, walking down the aisle to find your seat.
Just like writing a business plan, you’re settling into your seat, buckling up for the ride to come.
The runway leading to take off is easy, smooth and your stomach has butterflies. Kind of like when you start telling people what you’re plans are… maybe you start a Facebook page or begin to buy products.
Then you take off, and the view is great! You’re seeing things you’ve never seen from that angle and height before. Your perspective of the world shifts, you start to step into your role as a business owner.
But just as you are feeling comfortable there, you hit the clouds. This is the bumpy part, your vision is blurred, you can’t see the ground anymore and it can be a little scary. There are some clear spots, but mostly thick, cloudy areas. Maybe you have to hold on or ask for help during this stage of your business. You need an experienced pilot to keep you on the upward trajectory.
Until that moment finally comes, you’ve climbed above the clouds… you can see the sun, the skyline horizon. It’s light and bright.
Looking down you see those clouds from before are now puffy, like cotton balls, and actually, so beautiful. The sun is so bright, it blinds your eyes, but it feels amazing on your face. You feel the lightness, weightlessness, the incredible pure bliss of being so high in the sky, somewhere where— for all intensive purposes— humans shouldn’t be.
We’ve been told for so long that humans shouldn’t start businesses. It’s hard. It’s a lot of work. You’ll never make it. Most businesses fail after 2, 3, 5 years.
Maybe you are in that cloudy stage of your business? It doesn’t feel consistent, smooth and with a clear path? That’s ok and that’s where I get excited to help.
My private consulting is meant exactly for that cloudy stage. You’ve got a business up and running, but gosh, it seems like it’s going to be hard to rise above the clouds and feel the sun on your face.
You have new ideas every week. The technical part of growing seems daunting, where should you start? And maybe you feel like sales have been good, but the money in your bank account doesn’t reflect the work you’ve been putting in.
Maybe you're ready to hire a consultant who teaches and guides you on how to not only get through the clouds, but basking in the sun on the other side? A coach who knows how to help you with all the technical stuff, but can give you all the mindset support when shit really gets real in your business.
SOUNDS EXACTLY LIKE MY 1:1 CONSULTING PROGRAM!
I’ve re-opened only 4 SPOTS FOR 12 WEEK 1:1 CONSULTING. Yes, the 1:1 Consulting program that literally TRANSFORMED women’s lives in 2016.
Last year, I helped women go from $6k months to $16k months, buy new cars, start from scratch to a $10k 1st month in biz, have fully booked out schedules (with down time!), move to their dream locations… and honestly, be happier, feel more calm and run their business with ease.
If you're feeling like you’re ready to take 2017 by storm, but all your BIG plans feel a bit too overwhelming already…
STOP RIGHT THERE.
I want to help you get a FIRM GRASP on 2017 and really make shit happen this year.
You can choose to give yourself a chance, rather than saying: "oh well my dreams are probably too big...", you could buckle down for 12 weeks with me and REALLY make yourself proud.
Prove it to yourself that you can defy gravity and make it through the scary cloudy part in your business.
🌟 You'll hardly recognize yourself by the end of these 12 weeks! 🌟
This is a super high-level customized 12 weeks. You'll get training videos, book lists, workbooks, everything you need to succeed.
You want a business partner? Great- that's me for twelve weeks. You'll have weekly 1:1 calls with just me and full email access to me for the entire length of us working together. We’ll talk through any blocks that come up and I’ll give you all of the woo-woo stuff I do to keep my vibe high and hit my goals.
You + Me... we're going to deep dive into your business to figure out what is going right to push it, what's going wrong, and stop it. No more wondering why you have too much inventory or why there's not as much money in the bank as you thought there should be.
Picture this: In just 12 weeks, you've got your business running like a super profitable machine, you have a plan set up and in place, and you KNOW it's all working exactly the way you imagined in the dreams you had about your retail business.
I know finding good teachers is the hardest part.
If you want to do what I've done... be featured in magazines, win awards, have six-figure years, know the latest in internet marketing and social media, develop a strong money mindset and go out and kick butt in business... I'm probably your teacher.
