The beginning of a business is fun and full of promises. We get super excited, we've never been so motivated! Then, comes the launch phase. Our stuff is SO GOOD, everyone is going to buy and we'll be an exception to the average success rate.

Nothing. Some open rates, a few engagements, mostly from our friends and family who want to encourage us.

CELEBRATE THE RESULTS: IT'S AN ABUNDANCE THING!

CELEBRATE THE RESULTS: IT'S AN ABUNDANCE THING!

Strappy red heels are on.

Shoulders glow with a splash of glitter. 

Laughter swirls through the air just as joyously as music.

Everybody loves a party. The celebration is how we honor the best moments of life. Yet beyond the fun of snagging that pretty dress from our favorite boutique or dancing into the night with our dearest friends at an electrifying event, a pretty dope phenomenon is happening in our heads as we celebrate.   

Hooked on Dope

…dopamine that is. 

15 WAYS TO KILL RESISTANCE AND GO FROM HOT MESS TO MEGA SUCCESS

15 WAYS TO KILL RESISTANCE AND GO FROM HOT MESS TO MEGA SUCCESS

What is emotional resistance? Resistance in its simplest form can be those tasks that keep us "busy" that are stopping us from moving forward, getting the things done that we need to do to help us hit a major goal.  

Resistance often looks like anxiety, stress, worry, judgment, fear doubt, self-sabotage, avoidance, escaping, self-criticism, and even anger. 

Emotional resistance comes in many forms, shapes, and sizes. It's important to note too, that it looks different for everyone. It can start to show up as a constant dispute with your spouse or significant other, angry about the weather, family drama, many family obligations that you have to do, a fight with a dear friend, client issues and all of these things added together are signs of resistance. Resistance is the obstacles that are presenting themselves to you to prevent you from hitting that goal, making a life change or following your dreams.

5 TIPS TO BOOST YOUR PRODUCTIVITY

5 TIPS TO BOOST YOUR PRODUCTIVITY

Ever wonder how others get so much done in a day? 

I used to wonder the same thing! I always felt like there was NEVER enough time in a day. I'd have a to-do list that was overwhelming and I would quite honestly never get it completed. I'd add them to the next day and guess what? They wouldn't get done again. Why? Because other to-dos became more important or I simply wasn't interested in doing them. 

Wasn't interested in doing them? You got it! I loathed the tasks. I would procrastinate and avoid doing them and stay "busy" doing other to-dos. Can you relate?

5 SIGNS IT'S TIME TO HIRE A BUSINESS COACH

5 SIGNS IT'S TIME TO HIRE A BUSINESS COACH

Wondering if now is the right time to hire a coach?

Not sure it it's really worth it?

Listen, I totally get it! I know how scary it can be to invest in a coach. Especially when it's thousands of dollars. My first coach was a $5,000 investment for a 90-day program. After going through a bad divorce my credit was severely damaged. That meant no loans, savings or credit cards. I had nothing! What did I do? I honestly borrowed against my 401(k) to make it happen.

Was it risky? Absolutely!

Was I scared that I wouldn't get a ROI? Hell yeah! I was petrified.

10 WAYS TO GET THE MONEY YOU NEED TO INVEST

10 WAYS TO GET THE MONEY YOU NEED TO INVEST

Are you ready to invest in your business, but don't have the money? 

There is nothing that hurts my heart more than when I talk to an entrepreneur and they tell me they NEED what I have to offer, but they don't have the money to invest. Quite honestly, it makes me really sad for them. Now I can see if it's a 4-figure or more investment, but when it's a minimal investment for a high valued product or service it stings a bit. I'm talking anything from $7-$197. 

If you can't invest for less than $200, then are you really running a business? Are you taking entrepreneurship serious?

IS FEAR IMPEDING ON YOUR SUCCESS?

IS FEAR IMPEDING ON YOUR SUCCESS?

IS FEAR IMPEDING ON YOUR SUCCESS?

Let's talk about fear today, shall we? What is fear? According to dictionary.com, fear is: 

a distressing emotion aroused by impending danger, evil, pain, etc., whether the threat is real or imagined; the feeling or condition of being afraid. 

Woah, doesn't that hit you like a ton of bricks? What fear are you experiencing right now in your business? What is scaring the bejesus out of you that you can't seem to push past? 

As you know, the life of an entrepreneur is not a walk in the park. It takes hard work, determination, perseverance and let's be honest, some brass ovaries. We are faced with situations and circumstances daily that challenge us within our lives and in our business. I'm sure you can think of a few situations right now that cover both, right? 

I want to tell you that we all have fears, we all have to find the courage to face our fears and push through them. It's not easy, but it's worth it! My client Rachel, says, "What you fear the most is often what you must do".  How true is that, right? 

We know that deep down, what we are feeling fearful of is what will  propel us in the direction of our dreams. But why don't we push past it? Why don't we, as Nike says, "Just do it!"? The reason is simply that we let these fears take up a permanent residence in our minds. We believe the stories that we're telling ourselves. These limiting beliefs that are holding us back from greatness are taking over our power to succeed. Not any more! YOU are a courageous lady entrepreneur that laughs in the face of fear! TODAY, fear will no longer hold you back. Today, fear is getting its eviction notice and you're going to serve him its papers!

MY PASSION & PURPOSE

MY PASSION & PURPOSE

A few months ago, I was feeling lost, stuck, insecure, unfulfilled in my life and knew I wasn't living my life with passion and purpose. I knew that I wanted to start my own business and for some time I had been looking at starting an online boutique. I LOVE boutiques. However, I was still not 100% convinced that opening a boutique was my calling. How was I really helping people in a positive way? How was I truly giving back to others? For me, it wasn't enough. So I struggled with trying to find my purpose. I know I wanted to help inspire, empower and enrich women's lives, but I had no idea what I was going to do. So I continued to ponder...
