This Is Not A Race

This is not a race. There is never any reason to feel rushed or behind. When energies of agitation or suffocation start creeping in, take some deep breaths. It will bring you back into alignment. I found myself feeling very suffocated this afternoon. I had SO much to do, but no clue where to start. It was an overwhelming and anxious energy that felt strong and intense. Every thought that came into my head was negative, hateful or judgmental…and not towards others, but towards myself. All I kept hearing was, “You are not enough. You do not deserve to have … Read More

A More Soulful Business

As business owners, we find ourselves DOING all the time. There is always so. much. to. do. And here’s the thing: Doing and working are important! It’s how your business moves forward. But I know for some of you, there is something inside begging for more. When you close your eyes and visualize the life you really want to live, does that include working 10-12 hour days? Does that include feeling stressed or anxious about all you have to do, whether you have time for it or not? Does that include rushing around doing all the things, all the time? … Read More

How to Effectively Plan Your Day

Do you work from home? Or do you aspire to live that “laptop lifestyle?” No matter how wonderful it all sounds, working from home does come with a lot of distractions: laundry, cleaning, making food, taking care of the dogs, helping hubby get ready to leave for the day, answering texts from mom and mindlessly scrolling through FB… Side Note: Do you ever catch yourself scrolling FB and think WHY AM I LOOKING AT FB?!? I HAVE SO MUCH TO DO TODAY! SNAP OUT OF IT!!!! Ok, glad I’m not alone! Anyways, despite the distractions, working from home is AMAZING. I … Read More

Becoming Virtual Nomads…

Sometime in early July 2015, Adam and I got a wild hair and asked each other…. “Wouldn’t it be cool to just buy an old RV, fix it up and travel around the country for awhile??” At this point in our lives we were trying to figure out the next step or stage in our lives. We had been living in Wisconsin now for about 3 years (in Door County, which we love!) but we just weren’t sure if this was the place we wanted to land. We figured traveling the country would help us see what else what out … Read More

Creating Vision: Success v. Significance written by Josh Coats

I’m in a lot of team pages on Facebook, and I see what happens in those team pages. Most of it is really great stuff, but one thing I notice a lot is people saying something like Dude, Beachbody is a business that’s all about helping people. I saw Carl Daikeler speak recently, and the passion he had for business was just oozing out of him. I absolutely loved it. I literally fell in love with that man that day (not weird, I still love Adam! haha). It’s just a speech that I’ve really been processing lately. Sometimes it takes … Read More

Stop Making Excuses Building Your Online Business

I feel like this is the time of year when a lot of people start to let the excuses creep in. It’s getting to the holidays, and I know most people feel that because it’s a time to celebrate, it’s also a time to slack off, right? I’ve been chatting with a lot of coaches lately, just getting the pulse of the team, if you will. The conclusion as of right now: People are giving me excuses Saying they don’t know what to do next They don’t know how to meet people Don’t know how to expand their business Don’t … Read More

Four Ways to Work Virtually

Let me ask you a question. Do you work full time? What do you do? Do you work for yourself? An employer? Whatever it is, do you work from home? Or do you go to a workspace each day to complete your tasks? Is there any freedom in your schedule? I’m curious! If you do stay home, what does it do for you? I think it does something different for everybody. Maybe working virtually or from home is not for everybody. It may be something a lot of people desire, but when it comes down to it, may not be … Read More

Life Won’t Wait

It seems so easy for each of us to get caught up in the Corporate shuffle and living to work, or rushing through our day. We get so distracted that we never really take the time to love what we have and ENJOY it! In my former life, as a corporate zombie, myself along with so many others would walk around in a stupor looking depressed and barely awake! I would hear people say all the time, “It will get better when…” When what? When you have more money, when you have more time?!? Let’s be honest, when will you … Read More

Getting Outside Your Comfy Zone

Over the last month, I have done a lot of things that have put me outside of my “comfy-zone”! Things like leaving my corporate job to work for myself, learning how to drive all over again with a stick shift, running a marathon and recently deciding to apply for a Mast Trainer with Powder Blue Productions. All of this stuff has been SUPER scary for me! Didn’t they always teach us in school to “think outside the box”? YES!! But how many of us actually followed through and consistently challenge ourselves to get out of that “comfy-zone”? No one ever … Read More
