One stubborn thought.

Oftentimes we have been practicing a thought so long that it is almost unconscious to us. Our brain has been in the gym lifting and practicing over and over and over so that these damn thoughts are strongggggggg. So how do you change these stubborn thoughts? You take the dumbbell out of it’s hand and force it get on the spin bike instead. In other words- you help it choose a better thought to get really good at.

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

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

  • 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.

They need to read just one more book. Or clean their office office or organize their schedules first. Before they can launch. Before they can hire me. Before they can do the things they really want to do.

How fit is your business?

Every damn time I take a spin class with Sammy Friedman of Grooveryde (also luckily my CFO-in-training at Cleveland Flea) or at Harness Cycle, I emerge feeling inspired, empowered, clear. In other words, I feel like myself– a powerful, intelligent, gritty, talented Female Founder.

And today, I found the words to express what I usually want to tell all my coaching clients and business owners at Cleveland Flea– SURE IT’S HARD BUT THAT’S NO REASON TO QUIT.
