Does your life seem to not have the excitement conversion you were hoping for?
In a space where the market place is expansive and the everyday entrepreneur is
right beside you in the Starbucks line, eyeing the same empty table you wonder,
“Can I keep up this pace?” In a place where there are not enough hours in a day
and your work day ends not at 7pm but more like 1am, you wonder quietly…
“how can I keep this up?”
I’m not going to try to sell you on a 4-8 hour work week, rather, I’m going to be
real with you. My first words of advice? Cut that sh*t out! Seriously! Look, you
sweet adorable soul, here’s the rub about your hard work and dedication, your
body will find a way to shut down from this non-sense. You will get sick and
suddenly won’t be able to function. Clients that are waiting will have to deal
with an unexpected delay that no one saw coming. Exhaustion dries up creativity.
Don’t you just love this time of year when the woulda coulda shoulda’s creep in?
Let me share one of mine. Not so long ago I was the girl behind the brand.
Let me explain here, I was the girl behind the dream. Someone else’s dream.
I was the makeup artist, sales exec, personal assistant, artist selling someone
else’s art, marketing person at someone else’s firm and any supportive role you
In a movie I would be the leading ladies best friend. Then one day I had enough.
I wanted my life to be extraordinary life. Extraordinary in the sense I wanted a
global with me voice in my business and in my personal life. I now live in
New Zealand and have a thriving business.
This is your time. This is your someday. Trust your gut and go with it.
The Breakthrough and Giving yourself and effing break!
My breakthrough was coming to terms with my block in wanting to promote
myself. I started by treating myself as my own best friend and my #1 client.
It’s your time to plan and let go of your 2014 goals and look into 2015. This
time of year it’s all about promoting yourself like a PR pro in the slow months.
I take my previous goals to the beach or my favorite waterfall on my hiking
trail and release it in the water every year. I now see that goals come to
fruition when they serve me and others best. I don’t sweat the small stuff.
I know I’m ready for something greater.
