So many ideas and things to do but not enough focus 😬 How did yours go?

My clients are DIFFERENT.
They don’t just want to start a business.
They don’t want to sell something they don’t believe in.
In fact, they’re not interested in selling anything they didn’t create themselves, or at least play a hand in creating.
They’re not interested in a conventional life or in following the status quo.
My clients want to create something of their own.
They want to start a beautiful, successful business with SOUL.
They want freedom to do what they love and live an abundant, fulfilling life by their own design.
They want authentic self-expression and to share their gifts and art with the world.
They may be afraid, and they may not believe, deep down, that they’re worthy of the life and success they dream of…
But they KNOW they’re meant for more, and they can’t imagine settling for anything less.
There is nothing more fulfilling than having a client entrust me to help her bring her vision to life.
There’s nothing more exciting than watching her ideas become real, tangible, living things that are doing good in the world.
There is nothing more beautiful than seeing her blossom 🌸 in her life and business as her most heartfelt dreams come alive. (And there’s nothing better than living it myself in my first business, Wabi-Sabi Botanicals, and now in sharing my gifts and experience as a business mentor.) I love my work and clients. So much. 🖤
It’s my biggest painting ever! I feel proud of this. It’s a concept that aligns with me- communication. As a teacher, I am always talking about effective verbal, facial, visual, and written communication. We communicate SO MUCH MORE than we are aware of. ✨ From left to right this mural uses ASL and writing to express the cornerstones of effective communication: Ask, Understand, Listen, Look. ✨ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
It’s sometimes hard to listen to what seems unsavory, understand what seems absurd, see something that seems wrong, and ask about something you’d rather not know. But. You know. That’s the only way that we can grow. We can’t walk around assuming the worst intent. The world, and people, are more beautiful and forgiving than that. ✨⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
I am accepting mural Projects for 2019. DM or email me to get your project going. 😊 ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
As you probs already know, this month marks my 10-year business anniversary!
I wanted to celebrate the milestone by sharing 10 of the many, many lessons I’ve learnt over my 10 years in business.
From the importance of self-motivation; the natural waxing and waning of enthusiasm and passion; the non-linear march of progress; and the joy of self-direction, I discuss the things about being self-employed that I love – as well as the things that are an endless source of challenge.
I hope you enjoy this look at my own personal business journey, and that you might see some of your own experiences reflected in what I have to share.
Listen now on Apple Podcasts, Spotify, or wherever you listen to pods 😊

I quit my software sales job about a month ago and here’s what my new workspace looks like. ✨ SUPER cute, isn’t it?? 😂🤣 No co-workers, no big office building to go into every day, and no headache from dealing with corporate BS. #iAintSorry 😑 •
People told me it was “ballsy or bold” but to me it’s just the necessary next step for my life at this point. •
My jobs haven’t been a walk-in-the park since I finished college 8 years ago and I’ve been frustrated for wayyyy too long because I never got a chance to really show off my real talent in the workplace. •
Time after time, I was give excuse after excuse for why I didn’t qualify for the jobs I really wanted. So I was stuck in this cycle of unpredictable and unstable sales jobs that didn’t even suit my strengths or my personality. •
After years of fighting, I decided it was just time to give MYSELF the chance to do the work I loved. 💁🏽 (double tap if you’re all about giving YOURSELF a chance! 💕) •
I believe when something is meant for you, it’ll always work out somehow. And on the other hand, when it isn’t meant for you, you just can’t force it. 🤷🏽♀️ You’re supposed to be doing something different, so it’s your job to figure out what that is and move on with your life. •
Maybe you’re frustrated too because your work life isn’t what you thought it would be after college and you know you’re capable of more. •
Or maybe you actually got what you thought was your dream job, but it’s not feeling so "dreamy" now that you’re doing it. •
Stay encouraged and know that the right path for you will reveal itself in time. When it feels right, you’ll know it without a doubt. Just trust YOURSELF!
