It's been an exciting #ThirdThursday for amshot! Some of our team members attended the September PUG meeting held at the stunning NW OKC office of our friends Roan Resources. Meanwhile, The Mettise Group's peer advisory Posse and Tribe groups held their September meeting at our office downtown while Mr. @swashburnillustration himself was hard at work installing art for next week's exhibITion art show. (P.S. Look closely for a sneak peek of Sam's work!) #PowerBIUserGroup #PeerAdvisory #exhibITion #ITisArt #EmpowerYourCommunity

Story is a sense making device for our brain in a really cluttered world. Tell a clear, compelling story that enters into your customer's narrative and all of a sudden you've created a little bit of magic. ✨✨✨
Sweater weather!!! πŸ’—πŸ’—πŸ’— Just like the changing seasons, your business is meant to follow seasons as well and I love the way Autumn reminds us to take a breath and prepare for colder days. After meeting with my accountant last week (yay quarterly taxes πŸ€—) he reminded me that all business owners (and especially entrepreneurs) should be stashing away 6 months of savings. Write down your big goals for your business and life and but also keep the more "mundane" goals in front of you too.
I interviewed a man today who started a company 25 years ago and created a large garden that eventually grew to be the size of a farm so his employees could have fresh produce. I love this. When entrepreneurs tackle problems with a heart of service, they can change an entire community (and the world...) with their vision. How are you being generous with your resources, creativity, time or talent in your business? I'm really curious... please humble brag below. πŸ‘‡πŸΌπŸ‘‡πŸΌπŸ‘‡πŸΌ πŸ“Έ: @littleton_abby
A long time ago when I was fresh out of college and had just dipped my toes into the working world, I interviewed for a marketing job with a sassy chain restaurant. The interview process was intense and they required their potential employees to take a few tests - problem solving, MATH (why?), and a personality test. - In my last interview, the manager sat me down and told me he was a little worried about my personality test. - "We want you to take this job. We'd like to offer it to you,"he told me. "But your test scores show that you have a real issue with authority. It seems you are a bit of a rebel and don't like to be told what to do." - I looked at him with wide eyes... "It said that?" I sputtered. "Ummm.... I'm not sure that's accurate." - You see- I had always followed the rules. I was a rule stickler. I was the opposite of a ride or die rebel. I wanted straight A's and to always be seen as professional and (let me cringe here...) NICE. - Anyway- they offered me the job, doubled the salary I was currently making and said they'd take my rebel soul. - I turned it down (another story for another day) but I think about those test results often. A computer test knew more about the future me than I did and for some reason this is hilarious to me. - Because it turns out- the parts of me that were nice and sweet and "don't want to take up too much space here" gave way to a woman who loves to push against the status quo when possible. Maybe it's the entrepreneurial spirit or maybe it's just getting older or becoming a mama? - But listen, if you are going to start your own business or make a big impact, dig deep enough to find your voice and don't be afraid to use it. The world needs innovators and problem solvers... the world needs rebels. πŸ”₯

And maybe one of the hardest... I've been on the phone all day with rockstar women and here's what I know to be true... the world needs you to show up and stop apologizing for your dreams and the space you take up. Charge what you are worth, get excited about your passions, and get comfortable with your why. The world needs people who are fully alive. The world needs you.
When someone you love and admire says- "hey, we really want you to speak at this leadership thing," your response should obviously be "heck yes!" And if you completely panic about it later and wonder if your hair looks too blond for people to take you seriously, that's okay too. It's also okay to get on a radio interview to talk about a speech you haven't written yet and cross your fingers that you figure it out before the radio spot airs. Mostly though- it's best to just stop freaking out, call in the heavenly forces, outline your speech, practice and get back to what you are supposed to be doing with your life. πŸ€·πŸΌβ€β™€οΈ (This isn't a representation of my life at all.

Happy in life, doing what I want and showing up everyday to inspire others. There is no better joy than another's smile. Met a lady in line at Starbucks today, she asked "what is plant based? " I quickly googled it to accurately tell her why it was important. She stated, she used to be a vegetarian before kids, but has struggled over the years and was trying to get healthy. With a quick mention of my journey, I lit a fire under her that inspired her to reach for it! Amazed with possibilities, she cracked a large smile and said "Thank You" . . .

Hello Leaders.....there is amazing Leo energy in the skies above that are going to help us become astronomical advocates for our groups. β €β €β €β €β €β €β €β €β € You may have noticed some common threads in posts....creativity, heart opening meditations, leaders stepping up their game. β €β €β €β €β €β €β €β €β € This is all Leo energy... with Mercury in Leo, North Node in Leo and Venus in Leo.

My physical body is sick again. I’m really just a bit over this illness... β €β €β €β €β €β €β €β €β € Until I received the message that I’m detoxing my bodies (spiritual, emotional, mental and physical) of my old self...of beliefs that no longer serve me. This gave me a whole new perspective and filled me with gratitude for all the ascension sickness I’ve experienced. β €β €β €β €β €β €β €β €β € After sitting in that I had another aha...that all this spiritual work I’ve been doing is not about creating a successful business so I can leave my teaching job...but it’s about me being the best version of myself....and you know what..... β €β €β €β €β €β €β €β €β € I can do that now!

Leadership can be hard work. Believe me, I'm a high school teacher and there are days where leading by example is exhausting. β €β €β €β €β €β €β €β €β € But I know that the days that it is easy and I'm loving what I'm doing are the days where I am collaborating as a leader, where I am seeing those I work with as equals and we are creating as a team. Love that space.... β €β €β €β €β €β €β €β €β € This is where and when I shine. β €β €β €β €β €β €β €β €β € And if I try to fit into any other leadership role of authoritarian, or the risk taker or the booming look at me leader...it just doesn't work for me. β €β €β €β €β €β €β €β €β € And that's ok. Because I know for me collaborative leadership lights me up. And this type of leadership is confirmed in my Astrology chart. β €β €β €β €β €β €β €β €β € #leaders #leadership #leadershipdevelopment #leadershipcoach #leadershipquotes #leadershipcoaching #soulleadership #insightful #insightfulthoughts #insightfultransformation #grouptransformation #transformation #egotosoul #astrology #greatleader #soulblueprint #thevision #riseandaalign #easywork #womeninleadership #womeninbusiness #livebyexample #enlightenment #leadershipdevelopment #leadingwomen #empowerment #empoweryourcommunity #transformyourgroup #lifestylebusiness
Happy Father’s Day πŸ’š #repost @jiminymagazine and thanks for this lovely interview πŸ“ #abovestudio #summeressentials #wovenbag #summerbag #haveabove #heartabove
Tolerance is not what we should be striving for. We should be striving for acceptance. We should be striving for empowerment. We should be striving for celebration. Saying "yeah, I guess I acknowledge your right to live. I guess I tolerate your existence." Is not something to be praised for. It is not something you deserve a pat on the back for. Allowing someone to exist in the world without harassing them is the barest of minimums and I will not pat you on the back for it. Thank you to those who push their message to the masses. Thank you to those who have been strong and inspired me to do so. Thank you to those who came before me.

Hey y'all, I missed the #prideproject post yesterday, but I got u today! This quote is something that I believe very strongly. Seeing other people like you being unafraid of who they are, and not caring how uncomfortable it makes others really shows you that you can do the same. This is why representation is so important. If you have never seen anyone like you accepting themselves or being accepted in the media or in your personal life, you will never know it is an option. You will never know that you can accept yourself and stand for your rights- or that you even have them. Another big problem is the type of representation. Everyone has seen an lgbt movie where the character is kicked out, beat up, or ends up commiting suicide. On top of this, the characters are almost always white. We need more positive, diverse stories to let our kids know they are possible. For me, artists like Janelle Monae have been a huge inspiration for me to start speaking out and being more open about certain topics. She's one of the first black lgbt artists I've seen who actively speak out about her experiences and incorporate it into her art. It made me realize how okay it is to put it out there and that other people like me are doing the same. I wanna be that for others, and you can too! Let me know if I should make a list of people who inspire me, I love talking about them πŸ’• - #representationmatters #bethepersonyouwanttomeet #bewhoyouneededwhenyouwereyounger #blacklgbt #empoweryourcommunity #inspireeachother #janellemonae

#tbt We still dreaming about a perfect picnic πŸŒΈπŸ’šπŸ–#Repost @dreamypresets at @msnerriss β€˜s launch blog party 🎈
Wassup y'all it's day two of #prideproject 🌻 I just wanna talk about the topic of coming out, and my hate/love relationship with the concept. I think while it's empowering to own your identity and finally speak on what you have been suppressing, there is also underestimated power in knowing you don't have to do all of that if you don't want to, and knowing that the necessity for it is only born out of oppression. If people were to acknowledge the presence of lgbt and stop assuming everyone is "straight until proven otherwise" then there would be no issue. In some ways, coming out has been turned into another form of othering lgbt people. Everyone chooses to forget that it's possible for someone to be lgbt until they are sat down and told. The message this sends is "I'm not going to acknowledge that these people exist unless it's right in my face." And also, it teaches lgbt children that it is normal for them to be different and viewed as an outsider. No straight person has had to sit their family down and say "by the way this is who I am." No straight person has bawled their eyes out for fear of being disowned for who they like. And when lgbt people are viewed as lying or omitting the truth for not going through these conversations, it only hammers in the message that this is an inherent part of life. It teaches us that it is just always going to be the norm for lgbt kids to have announce who they are, and to be assumed something else otherwise. This is a topic I haven't seen spoken on very often, and I thought I'd put it out there. If you feel coming out will be healing and necessary for you, go ahead and be proud πŸ’₯ If you feel it is unnecessary, or you live somewhere that it would be physically unsafe to do so, it's not an obligation. You don't have to announce yourself. It's okay. - #empoweryourcommunity #happypridemonth #blacklgbt #supportlgbt #acceptanceovertolerance #20gayteen #respectthefro
