Number 1️⃣rule: honesty first.
▪️Hurt me with the truth before you tell me a lie.
▪️Most people would rather you say what they want to hear.
▪️If you want results, sometimes you have to hear the hard truth.
Don’t you dare tell me that you don’t have it in you to want something more for your life. Don’t tell me you have to give up because it is difficult. This is life or death too. This is the difference between living a life you’ve always dreamed of or sitting alongside the death of a person you were meant to become ✨ —Rachel Hollis
I was once the girl that was run by my anxiety and depression, I saw no way of helping myself. I sat in my dorm room, crippled by panic attacks each and everyday. I had no motivation, no purpose and absolutely no direction for my life. I thought if it got bad enough, if I cried hard enough someone would come into my life and “save” me. If I truly hit rock bottom, someone would swoop me up and plop me into the life I dreamt of. I thought I just needed that one break....
Life most definitely does NOT work that way. The universe doesn’t respond that way.
The universe listens up when we decide to take ACTION. When we decide to be our own hero’s, when we decide to wipe our tears, get up off the floor and take that one step forward. You have to decide to work on YOUR life. Your relationships. Your energy. Your finances. Your mental health. Your physical health. YOU decide.
Some of the strongest people I know have had to go through some hard stuff, and they used it to make them stronger. Used the hard stuff to learn the lessons and be ready to take on the next level of their lives.
Don’t you dare tell me you can’t... because I will tell you all the reasons you CAN ✨
People are illogical, unreasonable, & self-centered.
Love them anyway.
If you do good, people will accuse you of selfish ulterior motives.
Do good anyway.
If you are successful, you will win false friends and true enemies.
The good you do today will be forgotten tomorrow.
Do good anyway.
Honesty and frankness make you vulnerable.
Be honest and frank anyway.
The biggest men and women with the biggest ideas can be shot down by the smallest men and women with the smallest minds.
Think big anyway.
People favor underdogs but follow only top dogs.
Fight for a few underdogs anyway.
What you spend years building may be destroyed overnight.
People really need help but may attack you if you do help them.
Help people anyway.
Give the world the best you have and you’ll get kicked in the teeth.
Give the world the best you have anyway.
🔘Which choice will get you where you want to go?
🔘If you have a map going somewhere but it's not a map to where you WANT to go, you cannot use it.
🔘No matter how many other people are there.
🔘No matter how nice it looks.
🔘No matter how useful the map is to other people.
🔘No matter how much you paid (or didn't pay) for the map.
🔘If THE MAP ISN'T TAKING YOU WHERE YOU WANT TO GO, IT'S USELESS TO YOU.
Did you ever want to be a detective when you were little? I did. I used to watch so many Sherlock Holmes and Agatha Christie mysteries with my mom that I even dressed up as Sherlock Holmes for Halloween one year - let's hope there aren't any photos of that, yikes! 🕵️♀️
Just because my detective career never took off doesn't mean I don't use some of those skills in my business. Ah, the curiosity of finding out what's REALLY going on that's more than meets the eye. 🔍
In my business I wanted to know how some people are able to connect with their audiences effortlessly to grow their following and make sales. I found out that some businesses use storytelling as their secret weapon to draw in their audience like a magnet.
If you've ever wanted to learn more about storytelling to see what's really going on, join my free 5-day story challenge as we demystify the magic of storytelling and I'll help you start using this skill effectively in your business. Sign up now using my bio link or: bit.ly/5daystory
The best thing you could possibly do for your brand is to simply just be you! ❤️ ⠀
It may have all been done before, but it’s never been done by you! ✨ Yes, researching your competitors is a must, but injecting your own personality into your brand is what will really sets the you apart! How amazing and liberating is that? ☺️⠀
I always ask my clients before beginning a branding project, what three words best describe their brand… These three words almost always describe their own personality or personal style too! 🤗 My three words are fun, feminine and a little bit vintage. What are yours? Would love to get to know you a little better! 💞 Let me know in the comments! X
Two years ago around this time I started going to therapy for the first time.
I knew I was about to get engaged and I was so excited, but had some sh!t I needed to deal with and heal personally (anxiety, depression, fear, scarcity, lack).
It was the best decision I ever made. I went on a regular basis for about 9 months and it helped set me on a path of self awareness, self empowerment and self love. -
I feel like these topics are popping up everywhere, and it’s so important to talk about them, YES, but it’s also important to move through them. Don’t stay stuck. Don’t focus on the lack, mess or inadequacies. Feel them fully, then let them go and do the next right thing. You can’t be a victim and victor at the same time. -
What’s the next right step? I was having this conversation with a friend today. But HOW do I do that? WHAT is the next right step? Start paying attention to your ✨thoughts + words✨ what are you actually thinking and speaking over yourself and your life?
The Power by Rhonda Byrne is a great jumping off point if you want to learn more on this topic, I highly recommend it.
Ps- yes it’s a library book. I know it’s 2018 and we have audible, kindle etc, but I still LOVE going to the library🤓📚
Have you ever wanted something so bad that it was all you could think about... you wanted it so much that you put all of your energy into its attainment... without stopping to question your actions. And as a result... it happened... you achieved it!! Success is often seen as this unattainable pinnacle that’s only for a select few of us... but actually success is for everyone who wants it bad enough... it doesn’t just happen by luck or chance, it happens on purpose... you CAN do this, go make it happen 💥👊🏼

I’ve been spending a lot of time lately learning and reading everything I can get my hands on - to the point I’m totally overwhelmed! 😅
Social media and the internet in general are so full of information, it blows my mind how many amazing resources you can find and learn from when you start looking. 📕
I’ve been getting really into business and marketing podcasts and resources as of late. I literally don’t even know where I should start with a marketing strategy! Or rather, I have so many ideas, I don’t know which one to try first. 📝
I would be really interested to hear from you guys, where did you start with marketing your work? What’s the first step you took? What was most effective? 💻
C L I E N T S H O U T O U T // Emme went all out with the Hannah theme for her site @theparentpal in which she hopes to "bridge the gap between home and school by coaching and empowering parents to be more active in their child’s educational career. Parent involvement has a significant impact on student success and I can make that involvement easier on everyone."
Since launching, Emme has written a book, working on a new one, published countless blogs and even started a shop where you can buy books, workbooks and merchandise curated by Emme herself. .
The hard stuff? (meaning the shop, the pop-ups, the extra opt-ins) She did it herself after launching - proud much?
The face behind the madness... I’m not glamorous or a Barbie but I do have a talent and a passion for what I do!! I have developed this business in the course of the last six years just starting out with a simple sewing machine making a car seat canopy for my newborn daughter in 2012. After realizing how easy they were to make I opened my first Etsy shop, it was pretty easy to maintain only getting 3-5 orders a week on top of my full-time job and being the mother of two infants. In 2014 I purchased my first embroidery machine off of eBay for only $1000. Shortly after that I decided I needed a much bigger machine!! So I got a bigger one and was flooded with orders from the community and still had a full time job!! In Sept 2015 I took this on as my full time job and never looked back!! In March of 2016 I made 1 simple shirt that said LOVE with a Texas as the O and things LITERALLY blew up overnight!! I called it the “iconic love shirt” because I sold over 36,000 of them and they were in every Hallmark store in Kentucky, Indiana and Florida!! In May of 2016, I had 5 full time Etsy shops, 7 employees, 2 more machines and no time for sleep!! It is still to this day growing rapidly with over 40 orders a day, not counting my local shops and wholesale orders!! I could not have done any of this without the support of all of my friends, amazing customers, family and the grace of God!! Just wanted to share a little about me and how I got started!! Love y’all!! #blessed#sewfancydesigns#sewfancy#embroideryartist#spiritshirtqueen#bossbabe#ceolife#buildingmyempire#nevergiveup
I’m back home in California now and I’m missing New Orleans something FIERCE!! I miss the people, the city and the FOOD! New Orleans is the only place I’ve been to where I literally ate rich and fried foods all day and STILL managed to lose two pounds. It’s MAGICAL!! I can’t wait to go back! I love my business because I get to go to all these amazing cities I’ve never been to before! Austin, New Orleans...and NASHVILLE NEXT YEAR!!
I was thinking recently about something @aubreymarcus told me. We were talking about how an entrepreneur should get started, and I said that *starting* was simply the most important thing—not to worry if something’s perfect, or even ready, but just to get it out into the world and start testing your idea and yourself. And Aubrey said yes, but took it a step further: The entrepreneur needs to make it to their first failure, he said. Because failure is inevitable. And your response to that failure will tell you everything about whether you’re ready and able to keep going. #entrepreneurship#notebooks#jasonfeifer
Have you noticed that the top entrepreneurs are successful because they operate from a space of love? ❤️💕
Forget your offer. Forget your funnels. Your “beingness”🙏 is the most important piece of the puzzle 🎲. Think about it, when you evolve your energy ⚡️ you’re more appealing and desirable. People are drawn to you and want to work with you.
So, next time you feel frazzled 😥 and overwhelmed in your business, take the focus off you!
Instead of asking “am I good enough?” 🤔 or “who am I to talk about this?” LEAD with “How can I serve?” 🙌🏻 “How can I operate from a space of love?” ❤️Heres 3 spiritual challenges I’ll leave you with :
1️⃣ LEAD with service without expectations 🙌🏻💘
2️⃣ Focus on helping people grow and expand 🌿
3️⃣ Just be you and watch your ripple effect unfold 🌊
