❤️ happy almost 3rd birthday, little bird!
Remember those years (or decades) ago when you started your business not realizing ALL the things you had to do, and that there isn’t just ONE way of doing things?🤪
I've personally stumbled into everyone else’s processes thinking it’s THE way to build, and ended up feeling overwhelmed & “shoulding” all over myself - I should create this, I should be in this niche, people tell me I should help these types of people….should, should, should.😩
Maybe you've been there too...where down the path of biz we look at our lives and think - SHIT - I don’t think I feel fulfilled in my business and/or life anymore! WTF should I do?
Then we start to validate things (because we are big-hearted like that)🤦♀️…
…I “should” be happy, I’m doing great work!
…I “should” be grateful, not everyone has the life I do.
…I “should” be lit up, my clients love me.
You CAN have your dream business and the lifestyle that leaves you feeling like your heart, mind and soul are being 100% fully expressed.💜
But first, you must commit to the process of releasing how you think you "should" be doing business.
There isn't one way. There is only YOUR way.🦋
This is the work I do with women entrepreneurs like you 👉Guide them home to what THEY really want by releasing the shoulds, getting clear on the business & life legacy that feels good to them & is inspired by their soul, then aligning their biz (and self expression) so that they can receive it.
If this sounds like the journey you are seeking, send me a DM! I'd love to connect.

How do you find your passion? Honestly, I find this a strange question. 😀 It’s a bit like asking what kind of ice cream should I like?
We don’t worry about whether we like chocolate or strawberry or butter pecan (my favorite!). We’re not worried about what other people think about our favorite ice cream flavor.
We just know what ice cream we like.
Now I realize what ice cream you like isn’t a life-determining question. 😜 Which makes it a lot easier!
But the idea is the same.
How do you find your passion? Ask yourself instead... What do you like doing? What makes you come alive?
Life is too short to not be doing something you enjoy!
Don’t get me wrong. Not every day will be amazing. There will be days you have to do things you don’t love.
But most days?
Most days should be filled with something you love.
And I promise you, you know what you love.
You know what sets you on fire.
You might just think it won’t work.
Or you can’t make money at it.
Or what will people think?
But this fire here?
It’s not worried about any of those things.
It’s just burning.
You are free to be fully alive. To be happy. You are free to set your soul on fire!
What do you like to do?
Go do that! With all you got.
The world needs that thing that sets your soul on fire. (How do you make a living at it? Use what you love to solve a problem for someone)
But first. The most important thing.
What makes you come alive?

The more you research and study on your industry, the more you have certainty. Confidence is key. Tag your friends. #livewithpurpose
Yep, I always try to implement a bit of positive psychology into my daily life. For example, I have recently discovered this @personalisedjournalapp.
I just love using it!
There is something in this world you were put here do to, only you can do.
It doesn't have to make sense it just has to make you happy. The key is to go inwards and let it unfold.❤

This has been the coziest, calmest, quietest, family filled holiday season ever and as much as my brain is in “2019 full steam ahead” boss babe mode... my body and energy is literally screaming at me to come to a full stop, rest and enjoy.
Feeling super grateful for this guy who has always been my rock of calm but this year more than ever. I couldn’t do life without his support especially on the days I am driving the hot mess express and struggle bus rolled into one.
Just because things haven’t happened yet, doesn’t mean they’re not on the way. Trust the unfolding of your life ✨ and enjoy the here and now along the journey.
⋆ Life is a journey to be experienced. You are the creator of your map. ⋆
Are you creating it? Or is your job creating it? Is your spouse creating it? Is society creating it? Are you intentionally making moves? Or, are you standing there letting others push you in any direction? Letting others dictate the direction of your map and what you do with your time & energy? Going through the motions, routines & habits just to survive another day?
This is a friendly reminder to not let life, or others, control you. But for you to control your life. If anyone should influence you, let it be God. Go after your passions and dreams. Break the mold you’re in. Don’t just react to life, create life. 💫
Part II of @NowWhatFaciliation
& I's interview is now live. In this video, we explore the benefits of converting "passion" to "obsession."
"That's definitely been the biggest challenge in this whole journey. When I was obsessive over developing my linguistic ability when I was 8,9-years-old I knew for a certain period of time, it had to be myself ... [because] my classmates had a seven-year advantage in speaking the language with their family & friends, I knew that in order to make that time up ... I had to work four, five times as hard."
The rest of the conversation can be found in both of our bios!! Appreciate the support!

Happy Friday !
When I was growing up, I assumed that if it was on the shelves of a store that it was safe to use. As an adult, I started reading labels doing the best I could. Now, I understand that labels don't tell us everything and even laws protect companies from listing all the chemicals used in their products or calling them other things like "fragrance."
Sometimes I'm in disbelief that just a few years ago, I had no idea this existed. And a lactation consultant just told me this morning not to buy cheaper ice cream - that it's cheaper from how much air is in it and the amount of chemicals used. 🤯🤯🤯
I'm still doing the best that I can, but with a little more knowledge each day. Knowing where our products come from and what's in them should be easy to figure out. Not a whole obstacle course! It's so sad that so many toxic-laced products are often for babies, kids and the homes they live in. 😢
There are better options. At least I know I can count on one company for my family. And we’ll go from there.

~Take the time to make your soul happy.
With all the hustle and bustle of the holiday season, remember to take some moments each day FOR YOU. Whether you realize it now, it makes a difference of what you give back to others. .
Tomar un camino, siempre nos va a alejar de otro 🍀 Emprender nos hace sacrificar estabilidad y emplearnos, libertad ~ Si estamos en una relación sacrificamos pensar individual y si no, nos perdemos compañía 🍀 Me dijeron, "no todos podemos pasar meses viajando", y la verdad es que si, podemos, pero hay que estar dispuesto a dejar cosas atrás 🍀
Los límites no existen, pero la realidad es que si vamos a tener que sacrificar cosas, personas, dinero, lujos o estabilidad ~ Conócete y entiende que caminos estás dispuesto a abandonar por perseguir tus sueños
Choosing a path, will always takes us away from another one 🍀 Entrepreneurship makes us sacrifice stability, and being an employee, freedom ~ If we are in a relationship we sacrifice individual thinking and if we are single we missed romance and company 🍀 A few days ago someone told me, "not everyone can spend months traveling," and the truth is, we all can, but we must be willing to sacrifice many things 🍀
You can do anything, there're no limits, but the truth is that you will have to make sacrifices, people, money, luxuries or stability ~ Know yourself and understand what paths you are willing to abandon to pursue your dreams
I was having a conversation with someone today about “feeling good enough” or “feeling happy”...
Pretty crazy how the human brain works sometimes.
“I’ll feel smart enough when I know how to do X”
And then you learn X, and then you’re like, well I’ll actually feel good enough when I know this next thing!
And then you learn that, and boom, a new thing comes up that you feel like you need to know before you can truly feel like you’re good enough. .
For some people, this happens with happiness too.
I’ll be happy when I land my first client....
Turns into I’ll be happy when I hit 5k a month..
Can turn into, I’ll be happy when I’m at 10k a month...
But we gotta cut this shit out. I caught myself thinking about that today and came to a big realization. I’m probably not the only one that feels that way.
But for some of us, our brains are programmed to feel like we need this next big thing always. .
It’s okay to want more. But we have to realize that 1) we are good enough, smart enough, at whatever point we are currently at and 2) we have enough and should be grateful for it.
Coming from a feeling of lack does nothing but holds us back. Focus more on what you have and more will come. Focus more on what talents you already have and can share, and watch how much better you get. ❤️💚❤️
Educate a woman and you educate a nation. | African Proverb
It’s true! But first she needs access to that education, and in many of our partner communities the cost of uniforms or school fees are barriers keeping them from going to school.
✔️This is why we pay local tailors to make high quality school uniforms, made specifically for each student and labeled by name (like the ones pictured here in Malawi).
✔️The kids then receive these brand new uniforms in exchange for giving us an old, discarded piece of their clothing. These are the old clothes that we bring back to get repurposed + sewn into the unique patches you see on @youmeclothing
✔️Our sales then go back to more uniforms in another community, clean water projects or job training programs - whatever the biggest need is.
It’s about YOU + ME working creatively together, sacrificing to help each other + make the world we want to see.

“Turn Your Wounds into WISDOM!”
Day 26: Magically Turn Mistakes Into Blessings..
I know it’s hard to believe sometimes, but every single mistake is a blessing in disguise. We’ve talked about this before, reflecting back on a situation that didn’t turn out the way you had hoped, and finding the positive within it. Today’s exercise is very similar. Think back on a mistake you made in your life, it can be big or small. Make sure it is something you still think about, and it still bothers you today. Once you’ve chosen your mistake ask yourself the following questions: What did I learn from this mistake? What are good things that came out of that mistake? Life is about learning, and sometimes we are presented with the same problems or situations over and over until we gain WISDOM from it. Gaining wisdom from your mistakes is the key to success, because it means you were able to decipher the lesson within the problem then implement what you learned in the future. The implementation is the most important part because it means you not only found the value within your situation, but you were able to find a solution that would help propel you in a more positive direction. For example say you got pulled over by the police and received a pretty hefty speeding ticket. Ask yourself the questions I mentioned above. Then turn to gratitude. “I am grateful to the police for stopping me because, I wasn’t focused on what I was doing, and I put my life, and others lives at risk by driving so fast.” Hopefully the next time you get in the car, you will be more focused on driving and the speed limits. Don’t forget to continue to write a list of 10 things you are grateful for and do you magic rock exercise before bed!☺️✌️💫

DON'T BE DECEIVED BY THE TURBULENCE IN YOUR LIFE. IT IS NOT WHAT YOU THINK
So, there I was, a bankrupt, depressed pharmacist... Everything was supposed to be fine and yet, it felt like my life was falling to pieces
Little did I realise that everything was actually falling together
I had dreamt and prayed about living life my way
Living life to my true design
I had felt out of place in this 'successful' life I had built but I would have kept going with it... I did not know any different
My whole life had conditioned me into thinking that the best kind of life was one where I was a professional and had a great steady job and did good stuff at church at the weekends and evenings
Not a bad life by any means... And so, when all the turbulence began - it felt scary
I felt out of control and I went numb
And for 4 years, I allowed myself to be full of self-pity
And so I was stuck for that period of time
But I look back and I am thankful for the turbulence
I am thankful that I got shook out of a life that did not suit me
I cannot say that it has been all fun and games but I can say, I am soooooo grateful that things played out the way they did.
I get to live life the way I want to now, PROSPEROUSLY
I have learnt to say 'no' without all the guilt and shame and feelings of being some kind of a rebel... I love myself more now than I ever have
Life feels on track
I feel capable of handling any challenges and as I expand, there are always those but it is cool because I have also learnt to trust Papa, for real rather than just by mouth.
I am not perfect by any means but I can see now that all the turbulence in my life led me to new, more expanded states... I remember the month before winning the Porsche Boxster, writing off TWO CARS and I still remember crying my eyes out on the side of the street when the second accident happened just 3 weeks after the first - It felt terrible
And yet, it created room for the Porsche
Now, am I saying that terrible things always have to happen before the good things come in?
I do however believe that if we could be more responsive to the intuitive nudges within us that try to guide us smoothly to ⤵⤵⤵⤵⤵⤵
