Guys, I stayed up until 1am last night crying my eyes out because I’m finally far enough along with this project that Gabriella needs to be in childcare full time (she started with a sitter this morning). I kept thinking about all of the new things I will miss throughout the day, about if she gets hurt and mommy isn’t there to help her, about whether or not she is going to feel abandoned because I’m leaving her in the care of a stranger. It took me the better part of my restless evening and morning to find the positive in all of this. Gabriella is one day going to understand what it takes to start a project and see that project through, no matter what sacrifices she has to make along the way. She is going to understand that there are NO limits (age, sex, race) to what she is capable of achieving if she is willing to work hard for it. And she is going to understand that if she does something she loves and makes her truly happy, the people she surrounds herself with will be happy too. There is no manuscript to being a mom and full time boss! But knowing I can be an example and set the bar for her to have a successful, happy life is all the motivation I need to get through this transition. To all of my hard working mommas out there, keep kicking ass and being the best example you can be to your children! Much respect and admiration being sent your way. ❤️ #girlboss#womeninpower#womenempowerment#singlemom

You MUST change the way you are thinking about things. When you generate revenue from selling your book, your product, providing a service, or working with a client, DO NOT SPEND THE MONEY. Use your money from your 9-5 to live on and use your business revenue to build your business. Put the money you earn from selling books and hosting events, etc back into your business and invest in coaching, re-up on supplies and materials, increase your learning. Change your mind, change your habits and your life will change!

R E A L T A L K // This shoot gave me MAJOR anxiety. Every time @martymotivates and I try to shoot together it rains... and this day was no exception! •
You can plan for a lot of things, but some things are ultimately out of control. This day was the beginning of a 5 day thunderstorm in Dallas and the clouds rolled in as we were shooting. I thought about cancelling but decided that we should continue and make the most of it. •
We ended up with dozens fewer extras then originally planned for, had to change some of the shots on the fly, and navigate changing sun/black rain clouds. I am so. glad. we. did. I think it actually may have turned out better than we planned. •
Some things are out of control, but we have a choice to make the most of our circumstances. Rain or shine, make it happen 🤛🏼
designing a life you love is not for "other people." it's for you. and me. and us. it's for us to determine, to commit to, to go after, to never give up on, and to certainly never apologize for.
let us know - what are you doing this week to go for it?
I’m a solutions girl. When it comes to challenges, some are quick easy fixes—others, are just plain old hard. And sometimes there isn’t a fix at all—just a new direction. And the best part of it is: as Walt Disney said, “It’s fun to do the impossible.” Happy Monday—whatever you need a solution for this week, here’s your reminder that everything is figureoutable. | #mondaymotivation#chandelierevent
