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!

Why I burned the boats {and you should too!}

I just finished up my taxes for 2015.


What I realized going through the numbers was that 2015 was a really hard year for me. 

As I looked through the charges on my card, my income, what I spent money on… I was a little shocked.

Not only was it my lowest income year ever as an adult, it was the first year I ever spent money on personal development. I had basically negative money and spent the majority of the money I made on investments in MYSELF. (I actually can’t believe I’m publicly talking about this…)

WHY DID I DO THAT?
Because I was stuck. 
I couldn’t do it by myself anymore.
I was struggling.
I didn’t know what was wrong with me, with my business.
I was tired.
I wanted more.
I couldn’t deal.
I knew it was the tipping point…
And my family, friends, my poor boyfriend—they just couldn’t help me. 
They didn’t know how to help me.
They saw I was down, depressed even, and didn’t know what could get the funk out.

You see, in 2013, I started teaching a monthly webinar to mobile retailers. I got to use my 7 years of retail expertise to teach a higher level of running a retail business— AND I LOVED IT. Every freaking minute of it. I was psyched when someone wanted to consult with me 1:1 and usually stayed on the phone with them longer than the 1 hour allotted time. (If you talk with me these days, you know I do that still sometimes!)

That pull of teaching was calling me last year. I knew I was meant for more than where I was, and I couldn’t quite put my finger on how, when, who… I didn’t have a clue what was next. I just knew I loved teaching, helping women run their businesses. Give them the good, bad and the ugly I had experienced myself.

I knew my life had to stop the crappy pattern it was in, and I was fully convinced that scraping together the money I had to do it was the answer.

So I bit the bullet and decided to “burn the boats” as they say. I spent $5500 on my first group coaching program. I was obsessed with the women who was running it and it became a non-negotiable for me to sign up for the program quickly after I listened to her teleclasses.

What came out of me burning the boats?

  • More money coming in from places I never expected
  • A solid relationship with a fantastic coach who pushed me and nurtured me at exactly the times that I needed it
  • Awesome business best friends who I speak with weekly (some daily!)
  • incredible trainings and workbooks I still reference to run my business
  • A renewed relationship with my boyfriend (I stopped asking him for help with my biz!)
  • A revived relationship with my family-- my mom wasn't worried about me being depressed anymore
  • A new ME. I renewed ME. A ME who knew exactly what she wanted to do, how she was going to do it, and the energy and tools to go out and do it.

That’s how I ended up here, in your inbox! You see, I know about a lot of things… but one thing I know for sure is when I need help.

THIS IS MY FIRST COACH EMILY! She's the one who pulled me out of a dark place and got me on this incredible road of consulting and coaching women just like you.

My dad once said to me: “Emily, I’d rather invest in you than the stock market. I believe you will always make better returns than the market.” And HELL YES- I agree with that. I will ALWAYS invest in myself. I am an incredible investment… and as an entrepreneur I’m not afraid to invest in myself to grow my life and my business.

Ask yourself right now: Are YOU the BEST INVESTMENT your business has got? (Hopefully the answer is yes!)

  • Are you where you want to be in your business?
  • What’s stopping you from getting to your goals in your life and business?
  • How are those obstacles taking you out of the game and crushing your dreams?
  • Is it time for you to end your every day suffering? 
  • Why do you feel like you have to endure this pain alone in your business?
  • Is it time for you to bite the bullet and ask for the help that you need to get yourself to the next level?

Is it time for you to make the best investment yet and invest in yourself?

60 days left...

Maybe you’ve been thinking, “Wow, I’m so busy. Overwhelmed. My business is doing really well, but I think I should have more time, more money in the bank, know what to focus on… My family is sick of my talking about my business 24//7. I know I want to grow this business more, but I feel too all over the place to make solid decisions to expand and grow.”


Sound familiar? Feel familiar?

I know what it's like. I understand how it feels to be 'just keeping up' and like every day means so much. If your life has become about 'just getting through the day' and 'when can I have a glass of wine'... I need you to know that it doesn't have to be like that anymore.
 

** I fully believe that you have the right to the opportunity to grow and develop your skills in your business.
 

** I believe that having frequent feedback from an industry professional will help you be comfortable taking risks in your business.
 

** I believe that support from someone who has been where you are will give you the comfort and security to be vulnerable.
 

These core beliefs are why I became a coach/consultant.

Why do I say coach/consultant?

My coaching is based on a holistic look at your life and business and how they affect each other:

> Deep diving into time management & match to your core desired feelings
> Kickass Mindset for optimum success and money growth
> Energy practices- how to manage your energy to grow business without being stressed/overwhelmed/tired
> Accountability, encouragement, the push needed to go outside your comfort zone

My consulting is focused on systems and structures to help stabilize, maintain and grow your business:
> Manage Open to Buy and become financially efficient utilizing Stock to Sales logics
> Analyze Sales History Data
> Develop Monthly Buying Plan
> Create a Markdown & Sales Plan
> Develop Marketing Plan via Social Media Presence & Email Marketing
> Manage Website/ SEO/ Create e-commerce or social selling income streams
> Plan out growth strategy
> Create monthly, quarterly and yearly goals

Having read the above list of what I do... are you doing most of that at this point in your business? Does some of that sound fun/relieving/exciting? Let me ask you:

  • Are you where you want to be in your business?
  • What’s stopping you from getting to your goals in your life and business?
  • How are those obstacles taking you out of the game and crushing your dreams?
  • Is it time for you to end your every day suffering? 
  • Why do you feel like you have to endure this pain alone in your business?
  • Is it time for you to push yourself out of your comfort zone and ask for the help that you need to get yourself to the next level?

Last July > This July

Last July, I was sitting on this bed, staring at my computer and crying my eyes out.

It was supposed to be a fun holiday vacation, but I all I could think about was how I had no money. How I had no hope and how the hell I got myself into this situation.

My brick and mortar business was struggling, I had panic attacks every time I was in my mobile business... and as for the 3 other businesses I had running--- well, they were the ones paying the bills. I was tired, sad and in hindsight, I'd say I was depressed.

I knew I had to make a change-- and the change was certainly not to go back to a typical 9-5 job.

A month before this, I had started listening to an audio training series from a woman, also named Emily.

She had this incredible outlook on life and business... there were quotables inside the trainings, and I had taken notes on notes trying to figure out what her secret sauce was.

See, I was the type of person who always said, "I can figure this out, I don't need help."

But at this point, I was so deep into my entrepreneurial life, I wasn't quite sure how to figure this out myself. And sure, these audio trainings we amazing-- inspiring and with instruction-- but I realized that I couldn't replace a freebie training series with a true course with a real person to help me.

And that's when I gave in. Well, with a little help.

Emily was selling a 3 month course at the end of the audio training. I looked at the sign up page for the course probably a thousand times, continuously telling myself I couldn't afford it. But deep down, I knew I needed to sign up soooo badly. Like THIS was THE thing that would change my life. If I didn't take this risk, I'd continue along my path of depression.

I tried to sell some things, ask my sister to use her credit card, and moved some bits of money around. But it still wasn't enough for the first payment.

My boyfriend Greg had seen how much I would light up listening to the trainings, and that I had this glimmer of hope when I spoke about signing up for the course.

The day I was sitting on the bed crying, he came in and asked what was wrong. It was the last day to sign up, and I couldn't because I didn't have the money.

He left... and in less than 2 minutes, he came back with his credit card. Passing it to me, he said "Use this to sign up and you can pay me back when you can."

I almost didn't take it... Who was I to be using his money? This was admitting defeat in the biggest sense possible. I would never ask a man to pay for something like this. I was taught that a woman should take care of herself.

I shut down the voices running through my head and took the card. As soon as I got the confirmation for the course sign up, I felt a rush of relief come over my body. I knew that I was a good worker, I could get things done. And now I had an expert telling me exactly what to do to change my life for the better.

I was saved.

That was one year ago.

Since then it's been a whirlwind:
- I closed my brick and mortar store.
- I sold my mobile business!
- I started a business consulting business!
- I've been completely booked since I started consulting. And my clients are getting insanely positive results in their lives and businesses!
- I launched 2 new programs, a mastermind and intensives.
- I spent the winter in Antigua, a week in Paris (where I had my dream photoshoot!) and am about to travel around the world for the next couple of years.
- I've worked (and continue to work) with the top coaches in the world in business, mindset, public speaking, personal development and internet marketing.

And personally:
- My relationship with Greg gets deeper everyday.
- My mom and I are closer than ever before.
- My dad has a new level of respect for me as a business woman.
- I have ah-mazing new business besties all over the world. (And my super sweetie long time besties are reaping the benefits of my enhanced personal development, making continual improvements in their lives!)
- I feel happy, safe, inspired and vibrationally aligned every single day.
- I live with a greater sense of purpose and clarity than I ever have before. 

I live with a passion for not only MY dreams, but I'm obsessed with my CLIENT'S goals and dreams. I have seen so much transformation in my own life, I can't help but be addicted to seeing them transform as well.

Being successful in life and business REQUIRES being vulnerable. 

If I hadn't gotten over myself and what my mind was telling me to keep me safe, I absolutely wouldn't be where I am today.

I had to take the risk, I had to ask for help, and I had to be willing to put myself into situations that were uncomfortable (trust me, there were more than just in this letter!).

There are 174 days left in 2016.

How are you going to choose to be vulnerable? 

Are you willing to get uncomfortable for the sake of success, the chance to live a fantastic life full of every desire your business can afford you?

I believe in you and I'm obsessed with you achieving your dreams and goals!

Here's to living your life full of everything you desire!
xo,
Emily
