A self-care tool that will fix your life.

This tool will help you.

Show-up shame.

We’ve all been there. We decide to be truthful. We decide to be seen. We decide to show up in a way that our heart is asking.

I don't check email until the afternoon. Here's why.

Before I did self-coaching around it, my inbox represented to me:

  • all the ways in which I was failing people by not getting back to them immediately

  • my lack of control over my inbox (why couldn’t I just keep it at zero!?)

  • my inability to organize properly

  • people’s disappointment in me (emails are just sitting there unanswered, “just like what people expect from me”)

  • My inability to time manage perfectly– all the stuff I never had time to get to

  • A general feeling of “You’re doing it wrong”

Now, it’s a joy to check. Today I’m sharing how I found love for my messy inbox AND began to clean up my act.

3 reasons to narrow your niche.

When you create for the wrong people:

  • You never get better at what YOU like doing

  • You begin to resent your business

  • You don’t like the work and it makes it really really hard to deal with the tough stuff that inevitably comes up

  • You find it hard to explain why you’re different than others because your heart isn’t in it and you aren’t getting better

  • You are not your own boss

  • You’re not creating a distinguishable brand that gets more distinguishable over time

How can you avoid this? Narrow your niche!

Making it work in your new creative business.

The pressures of business will kill your creativity. More than likely if your business is growing, and you want it to continue to deliver you more money, it will require you manage your mind more effectively to continue liking it. And for it to continue delivering to you.

Should you even run a creative business? Are you in the middle of believing it’ll never work? This post is for you.

Give yourself credit.

How often are we not surrounded by work that could be done, clothes that should be folded, unread emails in our inboxes, conversations that were left on an unclear note, bodies that might do well to get a workout, books that are half-finished and untidiness in various corners of our lives?

So, amid all the work and untidiness of it all, how do I find happiness? I’m sharing that will you all today.
