I get super anxious when opening emails from my clients. Am I alone in this feeling?
See, designing logos is a creative task and therefore requires putting a little bit of yourself into it. This is why designers tend to have a ‘style’ or ‘aesthetic’. It’s because that logo is our own little work of art. We all try to separate ourselves from it emotionally, but it can be quite hard if I’m honest.
So, for that reason, I get super nervous and anxious when opening an email from a client. What if they hate what I’ve presented? I love it but will they? What if they fire me do to my lack of talent?
I have confidence as a designer but it’s the moment I go to open that email that the little self doubt monsters start to creep in.
So, I have started to try a few things that seem to help ease the pressure.
1. I only open emails on my desktop. Whether it’s positive or negative feedback, it always feels overwhelming when reading it on a smaller screen.
2. I only open emails when I am prepared to take in feedback. If I’m not in the right frame of mind to receive it, then I shouldn’t until I’m ready.
3. Self affirmations and reminders. Remind myself that I’ve done this so many times before and have had many satisfied customers. It’s somethings not right, it’s not personal. Also, reminding myself that’s it’s just a fucking logo. Though it’s absolutely important to the success of someone’s business, it’s not the end of the world if I don’t get it right on the first try.
4. NEVER read emails right before bed.
So, there you have it. A few techniques I’ve been trying lately. Any that work for you? I’d love to learn from you ✌🏼
I have decided to close registration for our Live You Fully event in New York.
We will leave it open for the next 72 hours only.
A couple of reasons... #1 . I have moved away from more is better and truly am looking for quality at this event vs quantity. I can remember as I was growing Elegant Femme I thought a measure of my success was bigger numbers. More people at my events, more Crèmes, more revenue...more, more, more.
As I have matured and let go of a little bit of ego 😜. I have grown to understand that the number isn't as important as how I am feeling, the way I am going about it, and that more doesn't always mean better;0.
I want to focus on the women who are coming and the event itself. So together with Spirit we can create the most, powerful, transformative event ever.🙏 Which I am so excited because I have added two brand new components to support you.
One is a pre event training to assist you in connecting with the energy you will require at the event. And the other is a post event "What's Next?" training to assist you after the event so you can integrate all you have learned.
You not only receive two full live days with me, you receive pre and post (avant and après) time to support your entire experience!
#2 . I am taking the next two weeks off to be with my boys and enjoy the rest of the summer with them. The last two years has taught me so much about what matters. There is an elegance in the Simple Life that I am craving and enjoying. For me, at this current life stage, I would rather be in the ocean 🌊 with my boys than trying to 'make sure' I have enough women at our event.
The way you honor your Beautiful, Soul-Led life is about the choices you make.
It is time to trust yourself to take the time you require to EXPERIENCE the life you have created in a way that fuels you, uplifts you and fulfills you!
If you are not yet coming to New York, I would love to support you in creating a life that reflects who you really are, so you too have the freedom to make choices that support you.

Det är lättare att lägga till saker än att sluta med något. Och för att börja med något som ska göra mig bättre på något sätt måste jag få det till en vana. Det tar ca 21 dagar att skapa en vana och det kan vara jättejobbigt. Så min tanke är att om jag skriver det här få mer press på mig att fullfölja det jag ska.
Jag bestämmer inte min framtid utan det gör mina vanor! Jag kan däremot bestämma och kontrollera mina vanor och de skapar min framtid.
För att skapa en vana som för dig framåt måste du veta vad du vill. Varför, vad är syftet? Sen krävs det att du har en plan och disciplin.
Imorgon ska jag avslöja vilken vana jag ska börja med.
Esperienze a 5 🌟🌟🌟🌟🌟 Qualche anno fa non avrei mai immaginato di poter essere invitata a 22 anni (Settembre 2017) a una cena di Gala tanto prestigiosa, in uno degli Hotel più belli di Madrid, con una sala solo per noi, musica dal vivo solo per noi e le colonne portanti della nostra Azienda lì a raccontarci tutta la loro esperienza 😍😍😍
Come mai così tanto? Solo per aver fatto il nostro lavoro! E non vedo l'ora di replicare quest'anno a Parigi😍🇫🇷 Manca davvero pochissimo!
Check out my Live video for an amazing offer to 2 people!
I want to help you move into the best version of yourself. If you’ve been struggling to figure out what your focus is, or you’re trying to pinpoint what might be holding you back, I’d be honored to offer you a free 1:1, 20-minute laser coaching session with me.
It is absolutely free, no pitch and I believe we can make a huge shift for you during our time together!
If you’re seeing this and it resonates with you, slip me a DM! Or if you know someone who would benefit from this, please share this with them.
These sessions will go to the first two individuals who hit me up in my DM.
For you outside of the two, we can definitely set up discovery calls, if you want, and see if you’d like to start moving into the best version of yourself.
Sometimes we forget that every morning has the potential to be a fresh start ✨🤞🏼
If you've hit a wall with your business then pause, rethink, sleep on it and wake up knowing you can start over! 🌱 💫
This is me outside the doors to Sciences-Po in Paris, where I studied abroad in 2007. Fresh-faced and green, I was ignorant and naïve to so much then. Ohhhh the lessons this would teach me. It all started when…
On my second day there I took le métro to a department store to buy a towel and a few other necessities that I’d decided not to haul in my luggage. When I went to the counter to pay, I couldn’t find my wallet. Then it hit me – I’d been robbed on the metro. It was crowded and I’d stupidly left my purse (pictured here) unzipped as bodies pressed against one another.
I was crushed. The lowest of the low. Again, stupidly, I hadn’t taken out any of the €250 that I’d made sure to exchange before flying over (for emergencies, ya know?). I hadn’t set aside either my credit or debit card in my room. I had NOTHING. Alone in a foreign country.
I’d lost an enormous amount of money to me at that time. Not to mention that the only access I had to a phone to call my bank & credit card company were via payphones that needed –get this- *a credit card* to use!
I sat on some steps alone and cried, feeling hopeless and desperate.
But after time spent panicking & pitying myself, I reached somewhere deep inside and found a resourcefulness I never knew I had. I found solutions and fortunately also the generosity of strangers. It reminded me of the kindness *and* malice of humankind.
The point is this!
1- Zip your purse. 😂
2- Growth is painful.
3- As much as we’d love to take all the credit for overcoming obstacles, we can’t do it alone. We need help.
What are you going to do today to get help and grow? 👇🏾👇🏼👇🏿
Today's nutty delight brought to you by the wonderful @stocksinthecity and has been fuelling me all day. No idea what she put in them but they are tasty tasty. 🤗
Here's a nutty question for you, what's your favourite nut?
I remember being so intrigued with cracking Walnuts and Brazil nuts open as a kid. With the nutcracker only seemingly making an appearance at Christmas time. So much pleasure in the accomplishment of each nut cracked and gobbled. ...
Want to crack more nuts in your life and feel as good as I did as a kid? Join The Weekly, our weekly ish newsletter. We share plenty of tips to get you going (in life, not really with nuts, but I think you get that 😉). >>> www.thedaisypatch.co.uk/ weekly or just message me direct!
Love coach? But scared to share your Truth because your clients might end up crying? How does your ‘being nice’ get them the epic transformation they desperately need in order to find love and have the babies they're dreaming of?⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
Yoga retreat entrepreneur? Scared to CHARGE THE BIG BUCKS for your retreat, (aka your worth) avoid taking deposits (because it's not convenient for your clients) and fear being seen as too money oriented? How does that low income at the end of the month make you feel, when you barely manage to make ends meet and can’t afford to take that break you were hoping for? #worthconsciousness ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
Business coach? But can't bear the thought of raising the price for your program? You'll not be able to serve at your highest level for very long; Undervaluing yourself & overworking always leads to depletion.⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
The thing we fear doing is often the thing we absolutely must do to breakthrough . . .⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
And it’s usually not that big a thing. It’s just hugely terrifying for us.⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
-> Share your truth ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
-> value your epic greatness ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
-> charge your worth ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
-> quantum leap type transformations are life saving and thus priceless⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
If you're resisting following through with what you know to be you, your soul will start hibernating . . .⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
I'M SEEING FAR TOO MANY GREAT WOMEN losing themselves to their mentors / gurus / marketeers / coaches.⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
It pains me so much to see someone show up as a mini version of their mentor.⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
YOUR GREATNESS IS DOING ** YOU ** ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
Your soul is who you are at your core.⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
... continued PART D
Today I feel different...I had a moment in the shower where I felt outside of my body. I examined myself piece by piece as if I just woke up from hibernating for a very long time. My body and soul feel completely new. At first I was like “oh my gosh I’m so weird” but I stopped myself with that thought...
I am not weird, my body has been through so much this past year and it’s ok to feel foreign and new. So I am accepting these feelings and I am going to take time to explore it more. I have a good feeling that this is going to be such an awakening and positive for me moving forward. I can’t wait to share my next chapter with all of you! 💗
“Here you leave today and enter the world of yesterday, tomorrow, and fantasy.”
Update: Check-in day (yesterday) was crazy busy but also so amazing as well. I finally got to start this journey that I’ve been thinking about since back in February when I got accepted. My room is set up, my roommates are SO awesome, I’m getting settled in and finding out what my life is going to be like for these next 5 months. And let me tell you, I’m pretty fricken excited. Still a bit overwhelming with all the new-ness coming my way but I’m just handling it all one step and one day at a time. And I know it’ll all be okay. I mean I’m working at the most magical, happiest place on earth, how can it not be??✨ This is the time for my new adventure and time to create my happily ever after. And I cannot wait💜
I started my yoga practice 15 years ago. I have scoliosis and lordosis and was told yoga will help with the regular back pain I was getting. I am the one in the room doing all the modifications…and I know I will never look like the cover of a yoga magazine. I always struggled with balance since one of my legs is shorter than the other, and a big part of my yoga practice has actually been learning to love my body and what my body can do.⠀
I started meditating 11 years ago and had the similar struggles. I (not so quickly) learned how meditation isn’t always just sitting there…that there are different types of mediation. That you can turn a walk into a mediation. Or even sipping your cup of tea.⠀
I took up restorative yoga and my world changed. I learning how much of this world I don’t know about…and wanted to keep learning. Graduated from my yoga teacher training 7 years ago.⠀
7 months ago, I had a concussion. Shockingly, I am still affected. Photosensitivity, audio sensitivity, daily migraines, insomnia, dizziness, shortness of breath, blurry vision, slowed cognition, and unfortunately more. ⠀
One thing that has helped me during this time has been meditation before bed with my eye pillow. It soothes and relaxes my tired eyes, and I sometimes add lavender or citrus to help calm and rest my mind, and stimulate my immune system. ⠀
It’s been a rough journey, but I am finally getting better. I’ve been getting to use my yoga and meditation practice to help, and have tools like adaptogens, teas, and diet tweaks that have changed my world. It has an ongoing learning journey I have enjoyed tremendously and am realizing I don’t share about enough…⠀
I’d like to know something from you…which of the following things would you like me to start sharing about? Feel free to name more than one: my learnings about diet tweaks, teas/herbs/adaptogens, yoga, mediation, manual therapy, daily life balance with a full time job, self care, relationship/marriage, law of attraction/attracting your soulmate into your world, my psoriasis journey and foods I now avoid, how to have a proportional life…. Let me know, I’m excited to share…⠀
