Welcome to wisdom Wednesday’s. Today I want to share with you a mistake I made when I was just starting out, how I fixed it, and what success it brought me in my business. ❌ I worked for 7 days a week in my business from open to close for nearly 2 years straight. Sales were not increasing, and even though I thought I could handle the workload, I was showing signs of anger, stress, and depression. ✅ I realised I was working in my business and NOT on my business. It was imperative that I needed to surround myself with talented individuals that could not only produce amazing coffee and food, but compassionate and caring enough to look after my customers. 🔥 The right team has allowed me 3 days away from my business - NOT to relax and play, but to work on the business. (Side Note - I am still present in the business EVERY SINGLE DAY). Working on the business for me is:
👉🏽 creating systems and processes
👉🏽 quality control
👉🏽 content creation and marketing
👉🏽 customer liaison 👉🏽 team building
👉🏽 social media presence
What are you doing to grow your business right now?

30-Day Summer Body Quest – Day 9
Today is a day of failure. Failure to execute my discipline. I ate outside of my time period. I was supposed to stop eating at 9pm, but I ate later than that. I was at a bar drinking liquor. I had exactly 3 glasses of 40 Creek on the rocks. Then I totally forgot my 9pm eating deadline and ordered a shrimp appetizer. I’m not going to beat myself up too badly about eating outside of my time period. The reality is I was prepared for failures. Now I must get myself back in line and continue my quest. Hopefully my recent failures won’t affect my weight loss too much. I will see tomorrow because I have to weigh myself. ******************
WE CELEBRATE EVERYTHING ELSE BUT WHAT REALLY MATTERS!!!
☆WE ARE FREE!!! ☆What is Juneteenth? A DAY OF FREEDOM ♤On June 19, 1865, Maj. Gen. Gordon Granger came to Galveston, Texas, to inform a reluctant community that President Abraham Lincoln two years earlier had freed the slaves and to press locals to comply with his directive. ☆Why did it take so long for the news to get to Texas? ♤There is no one reason why there was a 2½-year delay in letting Texas know about the abolition of slavery in the United States, according to Juneteenth.com. The historical site said some accounts place the delay on a messenger who was murdered on his way to Texas with the news, while others say the news was deliberately withheld. ♤Despite the delay, slavery did not end in Texas overnight, according to an article by Henry Louis Gates Jr. originally posted on The Root. Gates said after New Orleans fell, many slavers traveled to Texas with their slaves to escape regulations enforced by the Union Army in other states. ♤The slave owners were placed with the responsibility of letting their slaves know about the news, and some delayed relaying the information until after the harvest, Gates said. ☆Where does the name "Juneteenth" come from?
♤Juneteenth, which is also known as Freedom Day or Emancipation Day, is a combination of "June" and "nineteenth," in honor of the day that Granger announced the abolition of slavery in Texas.
I don’t always succes,actually a rarely do. Im just whiling to try over and over again! This is what happens to a sketch gone bad. Ink dump from my mixing palet.

Wasn’t good enough for this aint good enough for the other one!#failureisnotanoption#sailormoon#princesserenity#ink#wash#beurk#caca
So my ❤️ is gonna get broadcasted here a bit, well as much as y’all read anyways🤪. Failure!?! Why does it always mess with me in such a crazy BIG way? I hate the thought of it. I have so many amazing, great things in my life yet the thought of failing those I love stops me dead in my tracks, thoughts, and actions immediately! Please tell@me I’m not alone here? Maybe because of a failed marriage. Even though the one I have now is STRONGER witH more love ❤️ than ever, and bound by the 3-strand cord that won’t and can’t break. Or maybe because I have a daughter who doesn’t speak to me😢(I will always love, think about, and pray for you Hailey) even though my relationship with my other kiddos 👶🏼 has grown by leaps and bounds and me and my two babies are closer than ever. Or maybe because of my first business venture in life, had so many issues, I was so young, not much support that I just gave up. I DONT KNOW, I just don’t know why but failing is something that rocks me to my core. With Newfangled, I don’t want to fail for not only me and my family but also YOU!! You deserve a product that stands on firm ground and for great reason.

A nostalgic modesty that lets them show the world that they ARE different AND unique, but can also be a girl full of ❤️ and DREAMS, without showing her lil’ body to the whole word. We are #newfangledbrand#stronggirls#uniqueanddifferent and #modestyisbeautiful . Bottom line..... we are here for you. To help you foster the uniqueness in your little girl...despite fear!! Let her dream and be modest in the simplicity of who He created her to be.
Oh yeah, and soon to be #strongboys too. Yup if you read this far we’d love to hear your thoughts on a small boy line we have in the works. What would you like to see?

"There is no such thing as failure. There are only results". - Tony Robbins
Oh man, how many times did I prevent myself from doing things, just because I set my mind to failure before starting?
It used to be an automatic thought every time I had some new idea and Baam!: That's how you kill opportunities without even trying to figure them and putting just a little effort in it.
It does seem like a normal thought though, right? My brain would set aside anything I wasn't familiar with in the first place, so it automatically excluded the unknown in order to protect myself from disappointment.
But what if there was another world of great opportunities and friendships on the other side of that barrier? What if it takes you to a new passion, to a new friend, to a new place you didn't know before? I sure damn realize know that they are far more worth it than any slight disappointment there is.
Don't be afraid of the unknown and stepping out of your comfort zone. Believe in yourself and great things will follow!
