I ALWAYS get asked "How did you go from ICU Nursing, to fitness, to business?" And the truth is, I just made a business out of the things I'm good at. Problem number one.
Resistance. We felt it this morning from our 5 year old. His first day of 1st Grade. The leap from Kindergarten to Grade 1, we're told is huge. Less play time and more structured learning. But we send Oliver off with the same message to every first day, every play date, every sporting practice, "Do your best, have fun, you've got this, dude." Even in the midst of doubt, worry, and his tears. I couldn't help but wonder if our days were the same today.
In not a big surprise that the research is telling us this is the most distracted time in history. I can't help but wonder is this a good thing or a bad thing?
I have a mission and I'm on a bit of a self love journey, so I have to be prepared to use it. For boundaries. For asking for what I need. For speaking my truth. For talking out disagreements. For podcasts and live videos. For speaking in front of crowds. For hosting workshops. For singing my baby Happy Birthday and telling my husband that I love him. Are you shying away from using your voice or are you standing in your power?
Social media is the quickest, cheapest way to start engaging and it doesn't take a degree to master it. Just make sure whatever platform you pick, you're building a buying audience through consistency. Everyone wants posts to go "viral", but I'll take consistency over being a one hit wonder any day. But if you're not sure where to start content wise, here are the four most common emotions that make posts go viral.
We were actually having so much FUN that we paid extra that night to extend the wedding until 2 am. Although wedding wasn't our business, it was still about providing an experience. When making an offer in your actual business (or if you're not an entrepreneur, when asking for a raise or picking a job). It's all about the experience.
I was hitting a serious funk in my business in the Fall of 2018. I wasn't feeling my network marketing business anymore. I was also hosting monthly workshops, teaching my ass off, to people who never intended to hire me, at a studio where I couldn't control the marketing. The days of the workshops came and I didn't even want to go!
I walked to the center of the stage and I delivered my one true sentence, "I moved 400 glorious miles away from Mommy Dearest." The crowd laughed (ironically I wasn't trying to be funny!), and my mentor, Bo Eason, commented on how strong, powerful, feminine, and unapologetic I was. I was holding my stance, smiling, and for the first time in a long time, I felt good.
