Hey! I’m Steph!⠀ ⠀ One half of the dynamic sister duo that is Dreams N Destinies!⠀ ⠀ I thought we would do some intros this week and tell you a little bit about me and why I am a great biz bestie ;) ⠀ ⠀ Reason #1 -> I get you! ⠀ ⠀ I have never done well having a “real job”.⠀ ⠀ There were a few I enjoyed, but I would always feel stifled, frustrated, unfulfilled, and bored.⠀ ⠀ Inevitably, I would almost always get to the point where it felt like a little piece of me was dying when I was at work.⠀ ⠀ In 2013 I decided to make a change. To start my own business.⠀ ⠀ It was the best decision I could have made and I haven’t looked back! ⠀ ⠀ It hasn’t been smooth sailing but it’s been a journey worth taking.⠀ ⠀ It definitely hasn’t been a straight path to where I am today - it’s been a crazy winding journey that took me from starting a cleaning business, meandered into the digital world and now into coaching and product creation.⠀ ⠀ But, I can tell you, I wouldn’t be here without ever single detour and derailment. Every challenge, stage, person I’ve crossed paths with has all been a bigger part of the process that has led me here.⠀ ⠀ Remember that when you have a tough day. Remember that when things don’t SEEM to be going right. You can’t even imagine how all the pieces will fall together if you just keep moving forward.⠀ ⠀ Now is the single best time in history to be a women in business, and I plan on making the most of it. Not just by creating success for myself - but for helping other women grow their businesses and find the success they deserve!
If you are a #bossgirl with a side hustle who wants to grow her business to full-time, what would you do with a $1000 grant and how would it impact your business? ⠀ .⠀ .⠀ .⠀ .⠀ .⠀ .⠀
When you learn to enjoy and embrace the process rather than get hung up on the destination, you become unstoppable! ⠀ .⠀ .⠀ .⠀ .⠀ .⠀ .⠀
There’s nothing better than getting to build a business with one of your best friends ❤️ (and sister) ⠀ .⠀ Did you know there are 9 of us siblings? ⠀ .⠀ Truth - our vision is to build a family empire that will one day have each of us siblings playing a role in each of our own personal zones of genius.⠀ .

Happy Saturday! ⠀ .⠀ What are you doing this weekend? . . . . .
The one thing that holds me back from turning my side hustle into a full time business is ___________⠀ .⠀ .⠀ .⠀ .⠀ .⠀
It’s easy to focus on all the things that aren’t going right - BUT it’s especially dangerous when you’re an entrepreneur.⠀ .⠀ Especially when you’re just starting out, it’s easy to struggle with seeing all the things that “aren’t working” or are moving more slowly than you would like.⠀ .⠀ The important thing is to not take “failures”, set backs, or slow times personally. ⠀ .⠀ At times it may be a sign of something you need to do differently or better - but it DOESN’T mean YOU need to be better.⠀ .⠀ Entrepreneurial life is an ever changing world and you need to always be growing and learning. But if you start internalizing these challenges and beating yourself up over them - you halt the learning process.⠀ .⠀ Remember “I need to DO better” not “I need to BE better” ❤️⠀ .⠀ .⠀ .⠀ .⠀ .⠀
Want to know why we think RIGHT NOW is the very best time in all of history to be a woman with the dream to own a business?⠀ .⠀ Right now history is being made and we believe this era will be recorded in history books as the entrepreneurial woman revolution.⠀ .⠀ Right now there is a huge shift happening.⠀ .⠀ We all feel the ripple effects but almost no one is talking about it the way we see it...⠀ .⠀ Let’s change that, shall we?⠀ .⠀ How many of you dislike the Walmart self check outs?⠀ .⠀ We don’t - we love them.⠀ .⠀ We see it as times changing, as they always have and always will.⠀ .⠀ But this change is special for the entrepreneurial women out there.⠀ .⠀ Never had there ever been a more perfect setting for women to “have it all”.⠀ .⠀ Why?⠀ .⠀ The Internet.⠀ .⠀ Seriously, @garyvee is the only entrepreneur that we hear regularly talking about just how powerful a time we live in.⠀ .⠀ To many of us, the internet seems like “old news” because it’s been around long enough that it doesn’t FEEL new.⠀ .⠀ But here’s the deal.⠀ .⠀ If your a woman - you no longer need to choose between kids and a career. You no longer need to choose between having a home life and having a work life.⠀ .⠀ You. Can. Have. It. All.⠀ .⠀ Does that mean it’ll be easy? - no.⠀ .⠀ But it never has been, it’s just now becoming slightly easier and at least it’s feasible.⠀ .⠀ The Walmart self checkout is something we love because it highlights the change, is just a bit of a push for those being complacent in their dead end jobs, and has just enough impact to be scary enough that more women start looking at their options and begin trusting in themselves, their potential and start pursuing their own ambitions.⠀ .⠀ What do you think? Are you willing to embrace the change vs wasting effort to fight the inevitable? ⠀ .⠀ Will you choose to see the potential vs the threat?⠀ .⠀ Will you step out into your desired role and pursue your passions, listen to that drive within and begin taking action to live the life you desire?⠀ .⠀ .⠀ .⠀ .⠀ ⠀ .⠀
“What 3 things should I invest my time and money in when starting out” my answer suits those just starting or those wanting to scale their side hustle. . 1) A mentor - free or paid. You need that ONE person who knows you and your business inside and out. That one person who know where you’ve been, where you are and where you want to. To give support, constructive criticism and hold you accountable. . 2) market research - clarify who you are serving, what they want and/or need (sometimes those aren’t the same), research the language they use, the pain points they talk about, and validate your idea with them. . 3) Content! Without content - you aren’t going to grow and audience - no audience, no customers. All too often people get caught up in branding, designing a website and researching advertising. All of that is 5 steps after you start creating content and putting it out there. . What do you think of these 3 points? Agree or disagree? . . . . .
How many times during a week do you feel that dream pulling at you? . How often do you sit at your desk at work, you may be there now, and start imagining “some day” when you call the shots. .

In honour of #mentalhealthawarenessday we published an article today on the journey as a mom, wife and entrepreneur with anxiety.⠀ .⠀ Excerpt: ⠀ .⠀ "I tell you all this, not because I think it’s a unique story, but instead because I think it’s so common.⠀ .⠀ But, when you’re in it – you feel alone.⠀ .⠀ I think this is an important conversation to have, especially for entrepreneurial women.⠀ .⠀ The pressures women everywhere face every day are intense. But couple that with literally being responsible for every aspect of you business, the lives you’re impacting (whether that be clients, customers, or staff), the income you generate, and the pressure just continues to increase.⠀ .⠀ And when it gets to be too much, there is typically no one to cover while you “take sick time”.⠀ .⠀ On top of all this, I also truly believe that entrepreneurs are “wired different”.⠀ .⠀ We are always “chasing the next thing”, brainstorming our next idea, program, service, and never feel like “we’ve made it”.⠀ .⠀ And it seems no one understands what we do or why we are doing it.⠀ .⠀ If we aren’t aware of this and don’t take the time to celebrate our wins, build a network of likeminded people, and learn that we are not alone, I feel it is a recipe for anxiety and depression."⠀ .⠀ Know you are not alone, and although we are not professionals (and if you are in crisis, please call 911) we always willing to chat and are just a message away!⠀ .⠀ (Link to read full article in comments)
