I haven’t done #fridayintroductions in a bit so here you go, 5 things about me.
1) I’m enneagram 9 with 1 wing!
2) I went on a vegan diet about 4months ago now, & I haven’t looked back. It happened without me trying too hard like I have with other ways of eating in the past, so I know it’s what I need to do for my body this season.
3) I’m passionate about seeing women come to their God-given identity because it’s the antidote to knowing your sphere of influence, and what you have the authority to speak on. When you know who you are, you know what to say, especially in the marketplace.
4) My feet are always cold 🤣
5) I need at least 7hrs of sleep to function. So I can’t be an effective member of #teamnosleep 🙊
Anything surprising or that you can identify with?
Y’all see this picture of me, but behind it there are days:
❌ where I lack motivation
❌days in which I eat more than I should ❌days in which I doubt of myself
❌days where I compare myself, and I question myself why am I not where I want to be at?(physically and mentally)
❌days in which I’m about to give up..
But the first thing that comes up to my mind is what is my why? Why am I doing this? 👇🏼🤔
💗Because I love myself enough to take care of my body
💗It makes me feel good although I’m not where I want to be at
💗Bc the simple fact of knowing that I’m doing everything I can to take care of myself physically makes me feel like I’m winning in life
💗And bc I CAN, I am physically capable of walking, running, and exercising and this is my way of being thankful with God for this blessing.
For me, eating clean and going to the gym is not just about having an amazing body, it goes beyond that. 💯🙌🏼
So if you loose motivation, take the time to reflect on what is important to you? What is your why? What is the reason you’re here and keeps you going?
And ask yourself:
💫Is it worth taking care of myself physically and mentally for that reason? 🤗💓

“As you are shifting, you will begin to realize that you are not the same person you used to be. ⠀
The things you used to tolerate, will become intolerable. ⠀
When you once remained quiet, you are now speaking your truth. ⠀
Where you once battled and argued, you are now choosing to remain silent. ⠀
You are beginning to understand the value of your own voice and that there are some situations that no longer deserve your time, energy, and focus.”⠀
Read this somewhere this week, “He’s the Alpha and the Omega, the beginning and the end. We are to walk and work out the middle.”
Love that even in the middle we aren’t alone. Ours is just to receive the invitation that’s already extended. Even in our businesses.
In the first few years of my business, I put myself on a constant roller coaster.
I’d get a client. Highest of highs! Celebrate! It’s working!
The next day, I’d be panicking over when the next one would come in.
I’d come up with a BRILLIANT name, idea, outline for my next launch. CELEBRATE! This would be my time. First $10k month here I come.
Then panic through the entire launch, obsessing over everyone who didn’t sign up.
And in every moment of panic, frustration, stress, uncertainty, I let myself get pulled into a tailspin of research, looking for the next program or healing tool or manifesting ritual I could buy to figure out why my business wasn’t working.
A few thousands spent and programs later, I finally realized the problem wasn’t in my lack of skills or my mindset or my offers.
The problem was my consistency.
I gave up on my business every other week.
Start stop. Start stop. Start stop.
And I see so many of you doing this, too.
Momentum is going to be your best friend in your business. And if you really want to make it happen, take a minute now to declare that you are DONE giving up.
I want to give you a clear AF action plan so you understand exactly what to do, day in and day out, to start creating consistent income in your business. And no, this plan is NOT 42 steps or going to take you 8 hours a day. Ew. It’s simple. It can be efficient AF. And it can give you time and money freedom.
And that’s what we’re doing in the upcoming Live Your Legacy Business Training. It’s free! Let me know in the comments if you want the link to join us. * a note here: part of the problem is my business was actually my offerings (mainly how I was building and marketing them), and I did have some mindset nonsense to clear up. But the biggest reason entrepreneurs struggle to create consistent income and impact is this start stop roller coaster. So I’m here to help you blow that up. Sound good?
PS yes, this graphic was inspired by Shia Laboeuf’s classic motivational video. That is YouTube gold.
3 of my top tools for staying organized in business (Hit the little bookmark to save for later!):
👩🏽💻 Asana: This free (yes - free!) tool is literally the saving grace behind my productivity and advancement in business. Not only are my daily tasks listed out for everyday, I can also set push goals to ensure I am making advancements in business. This is also an AMAZING tool for assigning out tasks to my little team.
👩🏽💻 GSuite: Ladies and gentlemen, I have worked for a lot of companies and tried just about every email platform in the books, and silly little Gsuite is still my all time favorite. It's easy to organize, everything important lives in the cloud and Google Calendar is SO easy to block schedule and plan. For the most part, Gsuite also easily integrates with any of your other scheduling/organization platforms. And it's only $6ish/month per user!
👩🏽💻 Acuity by Squarespace: Best. Scheduling. App. Ever! When someone wants to book a meeting with me, instead of wasting valuable time going back and forth, I simply shoot them my link and it is up on the calendar! The platform is also highly customizable and syncs with your calendar. I only pay $15/month to have tons of time back in my day. Although I'm a die hard Squarespace fan, You don't need to have a Squarespace account to use Acuity!
Here's to productivity and allowing more time for things you love! 🥂
