"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.
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?
- 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!
"We're not here to celebrate perfectionism. We're here to celebrate how quickly we return our thoughts to love."
- Gabby Bernstein
I spent the a transformational weekend with New York Times Bestseller Gabby Bernstein at the Kripalu Center for Yoga and Health. She speaks and publishes with Hay House (yeah Louise Hay's company), writes books and does workshops all over the world.
And guess what? She's not perfect. She's human. She cries. She has bad days. She told us that she hadn't slept through the night in days.
And she's INSPIRING. She knows what she wants and she goes for it. She manifested an Oprah interview AND a New York Times feature. Now that is some powerful stuff!
If you've been following me for awhile, you might look at me and think,"She's so lucky" or "She's doing some cool things."
I'm going to let you in on a secret: It's NOT LUCK! I asked for all of it. I demanded all of it. I have made a very strong and clear choice to go after everything I decide I want for myself in my life.
In the winter, it was spending it in sunny Antigua. In April, it was having my dream photoshoot in Paris. May brought meeting powerhouse business women Kimra Luna and Selena Soo. This past weekend I spent with a powerful room of women and Gabby B. And in 2 weeks we will be completed selling all of our things and starting to travel around the world.
I want to be very clear... these are all the product of my manifested reality. I have felt drawn to these experiences, visualized, journaled and tapped on my fears or blocks around them. I trust in myself and the Universe that these wonderful things are available to me.
And the cool part is that I can teach you to do this too if you are open and ready for it.
My client Megan was a fast learner and on nearly every other call would have new opportunities pop up for her.
Whether it was a licensing deal for her artwork, a new commission, a blog interview, while working together she realized how powerful her thoughts and mindset were to the success of her business.
She even won a "Best of Boston" award during our time together!
Are you ready to have someone in your corner who shows you the exact steps to having the life and business you desire? Everything you want IS possible for you- even if you can't quite see it yet.
I'm still offering clarity calls to those who are ready to stop playing small. Spots are open this week, but they are going to go fast so book as soon as you see this! Here's the link. I have 4 spots open for 1:1 consulting until October. THIS IS YOUR CHANCE. You are reading this for a reason and I invite you to explore the reason and see what happens...
Here's to living your life in FUN!
Is it serving you?
I've been teaching this week- at Fashion Summer Camp!!
And my mantra with the girls is "As long as you create it from your heart, it's perfect."
At camp, it's a "prepare for a mess" kind of place. The kids are out of school and I get excited to let them go where their inspiration takes them- no matter what that looks like to me or anyone else.
I'll admit, I have a mega-perfectionist streak. And for a long time I thought it was necessary to be successful. But, it doesn't serve me to lead with perfection.
What's important to me, what I desire for my life to look like, is just plain FUN (being perfect doesn't feel fun to me!). I want to explore, learn, grow, be challenged and teach.
So I proclaim...
- If driving your beat up old car feels fun to you- do it!
- If eating out at restaurants on weekends feels fun to you- do it!
- If wearing your old comfiest shoes feels fun to you- do it!
- If traveling around the world feels fun to you- do it!
- If taking a walk twice a day feels fun to you- do it!
Everyone's desires are completely different. I want to encourage you to do whatever is FUN for YOU!
I'm gathering an amazing group of business women who want to live life in a way that feels more FUN to them. I'm giving them support, high level trainings, accountability, a community and (when it's needed) a big push in the direction of their BIG goals for 2016.
If you aren't on track to reach your 2016 business (and life!) goals, I'd love to have you in my Signature Mastermind program.
I want to be clear that it's not a formal course with modules-- it's more than that. A CUSTOMIZED 5-month program for you and a community of game changing women.
