I’m giving notice.

 

For the last 7 months I have been birthing my new baby of a business like my life depended on it.

And for the last 6 months, it felt so, so right.

I was pushing and pushing myself to get my website up, then a new website, then a new name, more marketing strategies, consistent multiple weekly newsletters, learning more, travelling more, and working with phenomenal women who desire to create worldwide impact in their new online businesses.

I was flying high!!! I’m not sure there has been another time in my life where I have felt so “on purpose” - exhilarated, or quite this passionate.

But about a month ago, that exhilaration started to level off, and overwhelm started to kick in.

I felt a major shift happening inside of me, and I was terrified for my business baby.

What does this mean? I don’t want to slow down! I’m just getting started!!

I leaned on my coach for guidance, I asked my angels for advice, and I talked it out with my best friend.

I mentioned in my Facebook live post that I was making a decision to invest in a masterminding event in NYC that my heart was guiding me to make, but my head was confused as to why.

For me, whenever I’m in doubt, I allow my heart to win every time, and every time, it’s right.

I knew I still needed that last bit of clarity for myself and my business that I hadn’t gotten yet.

You see, I have big dreams. Big, BIG dreams, like you.

 

 

 

For me they include serving as MANY women as possible in the pursuit of living out their purpose in this life - of tapping into their hidden unique gifts - and sharing them in a BIG way, with the world.

 

 

 

 

I desire to empower thousands, even millions of women, from worldwide stages, best-selling books, online trainings, and 1x1 mentorships.

So how could this all be possible, if I slow down?

I set my intention for New York to reveal these answers to me.

And it delivered.

I learned that life + business is like driving a stick shift.

When you first pull out onto the road, you’re in 1st gear - the gear the engine works the hardest in, especially the faster and longer you stay in it.

Then you shift to 2nd gear. Even though the engine has gone down a gear and gets to slow down here, the vehicle actually is better able speed up. And this goes on and on until you are in 5th or 6th gear, cruising down the highway at whatever speed you desire - the engine actually working with the least amount of effort.

Ever heard of a car that was all “highway” miles - it’s a good thing!

I connected and masterminded 1x1 with some of the very top powerhouse women in my industry at the Plaza and Pierre Hotels in New York - these women have businesses in the multi 6 and into 7 figures, they are just under or around 30 years old, and they have had their businesses less than 2.5 years.

And none were on the verge of breakdown and overwhelm.

So I know it’s possible, and now, I even know how.

I got on the plane to come home yesterday, and started writing down my ah-ha moments for myself and my business.

One of them was - you’re fired.

I am no longer available for overwhelm. I am building a business I love, so I can have a meaningful LIFE I love too - not the opposite!

Overwhelm - you’re being let go.

I am no longer available to build my business the way that everyone else is, or tells me I should, including my own ego.

Comparison - you’re being let go.

I am no longer available for the grinding of my own gears. My inner guide is telling me it’s time to switch out of first gear, and into second - Because sometimes, you’ve got to slow down, to speed up.

Self-Inflicted Pressure - I am letting. you. go.

{Seriously though, with that last sentence I just felt a huge weight lift up off my chest…}

Why am I telling you all this, gorgeous|*?

Because I see it glorified all over the internet about the grind, the hustle, and the sleepless nights - like it’s something to be proud of.

Don’t get me wrong, I worked my BUNS OFF those first 6 months - but it felt right. It felt good. It felt exciting. It felt eassssy. I’m not saying not to put in the time and effort. What I am saying is, check in with yourself to make sure you are not just building a business you love - you are building a LIFE you love, too.

When it stopped feeling joyful, I knew I was being guided to change. To shift gears.

And this is what I want for you, beauty.

I want you to know that it’s possible.

It’s possible to build a life AND business you love, without feeling overwhelmed 24/7.

It’s possible to grow a massive, meaningful, worldwide business, in a way that is joyful and invites ease into your life - not disintegrates it.

It’s possible to slow down, to speed up.

How do I know?

From seeing behind the curtain of some of the top women in business - who even have young families too.

And because I am going to be an example of this myself for you lovely, from now on. This is my promise to you. Feel free to hold me accountable.

In fact, I invite you to!

I know that growing a business is not all fairytales and pixie dust, there will be times we are soaring down the freeway at 5th gear, and we’ve got to rev up a bit into 4th or 3rd gear (TEMPORARILY!) or we are starting a new program, perhaps there is a small phase of 1st and 2nd gear throughout our passion projects for the world - but we don’t have to stay in those gears with our engines over revving and heading for overheating.

Listen for the purr of your engine, of your soul. Continually find your sweet spot, and adjust as needed.

To me, this will make for the journey of a lifetime.

I’ll see you out there, gorgeous, on the road to our dreams <3

 

Follow your heart always,
