Yesss sis!! #Repost @msmodabox
Thank you!!! @freshmes for the kind words and sharing!!! #veryempowering ➡️➡️➡️・・・
You asked why Freshmes was created? Partly because of women like Monica. She’s not only inspiring, but she knows where she came from and continues to “pay it forward”. She’s still humble, approachable, and she’s got GRIT. We are honored to feature Ms. Phromsavanh, because of these traits.
So, ladies- whether you’re in a transition with your career, a SAHM, a working woman, a small business owner, or running a global empire, and maybe even running your own country- literally (we are featuring a couple 😉!) - YOU are ALL important. One common denominator is that we all “master the juggle”. We are all women and status does not make us “greater”, but fortunate- and that when we get to that certain level, it’s so important to “pay it forward” and be accessible to so many other women needing that “lift up”. Success requires extreme focus- and to whom much is given, much will be expected.
We adore you, Monica CEO and Founder of ModaBox Thank you for being so gracious to accept our invitation to feature you!

Comfort zones are beautiful but nothing ever grows from there. Its easy and convenient to stay stagnant and content with where you are.
It feels great it's comfortable its what you know what you're used to. But let me tell you if you want to become the best version of yourself and achieve everything you've ever dreamed of you have to leave your comfort zone and get uncomfortable.
Take risks and do everything they said you can't do. There's nothing cute or good about being the same position and same person every year. Life is about growth if you aren't constantly evolving you're just existing 💯
It’s one thing to develop and build a personal brand, and it’s a whole other thing to actually *embody* it!
But what does that even mean?
And how do you do it?
Tune into today’s episode with Lauren McPhillips of @thisrenegadelove to hear her honest and heart-centered approach.
EPISODE NO. 67 IS LIVE “Lessons in Self-Expression & Embodying Your Brand”

I’m just as guilty as anyone of procrastinating, and the irony is I TEACH PEOPLE NOT TO! But, we’re all human and turning away from what seems painful, arduous, scary, or intimidating is normal. Really. 100% normal. Here’s the thing- get ready for wisdom from the Gods- it ain’t going away, so just do it. Life changing stuff, right? Look, procrastination is not new or unique, so the the truth is, the directive from me isn’t going to be new or unique. If you let it sit, you prolong the pain... ironically you’re procrastinating because you don’t want to feel some kind of pain. Do you see the crazy-making? So, move. Go. Do it. Stop complaining and stop making it worse in your head. Get off social media. Put your phone down. The longer you sit thinking about it, the longer you’re stuck in the pain. So, get your butt moving. No excuses. Send me a message when it’s done. That’s how we do this together. Now, GO.
Here we are all at✨Encounter 2✨in front of an amazing, huge inflatable beehive. There may be a great metaphor there but can’t quite figure it out yet...👑🐝?..
So, I was internally debating a few things while thinking about posting this ⬇️
💥Most people (including myself) don’t generally read long ass Instagram posts, so is there a point in getting into some STUFF here?
💥How real should I get? Is Instagram the forum to talk about disappointments and challenges? Or should it just be pretty and sparkly and fun?
Ultimately, I decided to go for it and reveal a few thoughts about this night because it’s important to me and I feel being truthful about the process is necessary, especially in this context and on a platform that’s so inundated with perfection...
🌱Yes, we’re all white. As hard as it is for womxn founders, it’s even harder for womxn founders of color (who statistically receive even less funding) and so it’s so important for me to include womxn of color consistently in these conversations. Not to mention it’s super boring to have womxn from similar (ish) backgrounds! I’d rather speak to it rather than pretend it’s not there and then work harder to change it.
🌱Although I like the conversations to be intimate, not as many people came as I would’ve expected and it’s hard not to be disappointed by this, especially as a new founder where you consistently have to rely on yourself for inner confidence/sense of accomplishment as it rarely comes from the outside. ⬇️
🌼The conversation we had was super meaningful and we learned so much from each other! The founders and aspiring founders who joined us were so inspiring and knowledgeable!
🌼 I’ve found these conversations have consistently helped me to push through disappointment and give me actual tools to improve my own work.
🌼 We got to enjoy the work of some amazing queer artists, including this inflatable beehive by @strega_maria. “Painted Dreams” by @patrickbellagone was beautiful, too, and, interrogated many of the weird societal dichotomies of the traditionally male/feminine through a vivid and funny lens.
So there’s that! If you read all of this, wow thank you! MORE TO COME 💕
I love serving others but sometimes I lose sight of then taking care of me. Thank you to my amazing mom who put these posters around my house. She knows I am a visual person and sometimes need a few exclamation points haha

You've been asking for it, and now it's HERE!
This Friday is the deadline to join my STORYCRAFT MASTERCLASS
The masterclass focuses on crafting your compelling story to use in multiple channels (the stage, social media, conference pitches, media) and I've personally never seen anyone else teach a masterclass quite like this
👉🏾Knowing your story improves your confidence, messaging, visibility, client acquisition and so much more
. 👉🏾I'm taking my decade of experience in broadcasting, public speaking, storytelling... and unleashing it inside this 8-week masterclass. You'll get insider secrets on the gold that pros use to get their markets attention through storytelling-- and keep it
It's the things I do, too;)
👉🏾If you want to have a higher impact in the world with your message and expertise, this is for you. (And you can take part in the masterclass from anywhere around the world)
The masterclass also includes: • 1:1 critiques on crafting your story • Gaining clarity on your PITCH • Understanding the biggest MISTAKE most people leave out of their story • How to secure leads with your story and speaking • Key elements to improve your conference pitch • Tips on Delivery, Stage Presence and Confidence • How to Speak Your Message MORE
Frankly, it's just a ton of ridiculous value
If you've been stuck on any of the above^^^ this is for you
And the good news? It's the first Storycraft masterclass, so I'm giving it to you good ol' folks at a seriously discounted rate
Bofta, WHY are you doing this?
Bofta: Group coaching allows me to serve more people around the world vs. strictly 1:1 coaching AND people have been asking me to do something like this, so I'm trying it out.
All right, back to bid’niz:
It's a Beta group, that means I'm offering it at a BETA price.
The price will go up after this first masterclass group.
I'm only taking 6 fine folks in the first masterclass
If you want to secure a spot, comment below or message me TODAY
Time is short
That is, if you want it at a substantial discount

What do you love about what you do? 💞
Yesterday I asked you what makes your business different. And if you're anything like me, maybe you found yourself struggling with that question.
Why would anyone choose me? There's nothing unique about my work! That's what we tell ourselves.
But the truth is: you do have something special to offer just by being who you are. I mean it.
Maybe it's the heart behind your mission, the urge to share what you learned from experience, or the education and experience you bring to every client you serve.
Whenever I experience doubts or fears in my business, I remind myself of what I love, of my why.
I love serving women in business and amplifying their impact in the world.
I love hearing about my clients' successes as a result of selling with meaning and heart.
I love translating your vision into designs that connect + convert.
I love being both a team of one and a team of many when I work with others.
So what do you love about your business? Tell me one thing in the comments!
I'm sure by now you've figured out that my happy place is the beach. It's the place where I am immediately transported to when things get tough or I simply need a moment. It's amazing I can find a moment of peace by closing my eyes and thinking about my toes in the sand on Maui or St. Lucia or Hilton Head.
Where's your happy place? #happyplaces

With my passport in hand, I was off. .
My first big trip by myself--and it was all the way to freaking Kenya. .
My mom was a hot mess, afraid to send her baby out into the unknown (20-year-old baby lol).
But I was ready. Ready for adventure. Ready to do something different. I grew up in the suburbs of Chicago. There was a whole world out there to explore. .
What if I get malaria? (yup, that happened).
What if I get robbed? (yea, that happened too).
What if I immerse myself in a totally different culture and come out a brand new person? That DEFINITELY happened. .
I grew so much in those 6 months. Grew in my faith. Learned how to speak some Swahili. .
And learned that life is a GIFT. Clean water is a gift. Proper medical care is a gift. .
The truth is that I went to Kenya to try and serve others there, but the people I met ended up helping me more than they'll ever know. .
So grateful for those adventures ❤️
Forgive them all..your mom, dad, sister, brother, cousin, aunts, uncles, ex’s, friends, teachers, pastors, etc. Forgive everyone and don’t leave yourself out. There is a powerful transformation that takes place when you truly forgive. You feel light, free and alive. Forgive those people so you can began the process of living your best life. Baggage free #flyhigh#forgiveness#nothinglikeit
Your brand is not your logo, your website or any other pretty things. Don’t get me wrong, that is part of it and is needed to built a profitable brand, but it is not what a brand is. ▫️
Ultimately in layman’s your brand is two things:
1. What are people saying about you, your products, services or business.
2. What kind of emotions do you evoke when people come in contact with you, your products, services or business. ▫️
If you you struggle to identify these 2 factors in your business chances are you don’t have a brand. But no worries though, once you can get clear on these 2 factors it will help you with creating more effective brand strategy and ultimately begin to help you to attract more of your dream clients and customers. 🔑
Lydia Shaffer and Lauren Hiles (owners of Coastal Styling Studio) go WAY back! They graduated from Smithfield High School together in 2006, then graduated just months apart from each other at Rudy and Kelly Academy in 2007. Lauren and Lydia have worked in Salon together for a little over 7 years and they believe that life keeps bringing them together for a reason.....and that reason is COASTAL STYLING STUDIO. 💛🌊💛
I got this thing going right now.
I’m claiming and owning the totality of me.
I’m using my energy to attract what truly interests me.
I’m not apologizing for my sexualness.
I’m learning what the elements of a free, expansive, and sensual relationship are- with me, and others.
I’m not making myself wrong for all the pleasure my body is having.
I’m finally into receiving the judgements that come along with ALL of this.
AND, I’m not making ANY of it significant.
