Scuba diving in a pool may not seem like a big deal but for me it is a HUGE deal! 💦I am breathing under water. 💦I am relying on something else to breathe. 💦I am claustrophobic. There was a lot of patience from my scuba instructor @t.mccabe to get me to where I could give this “ok” sign underwater yesterday. 😰Most people think claustrophobia is a fear of small or crowded spaces. I can actually handle those types of situations now fairly well with self talk. I can be in a crowed yoga room or sauna as long as I know I have the control to get out if I need to. However, my greatest fear of all time is having limited air or not being in control of my own breathing. 🚌 When I was little, I was in a school bus where kids were goofing around putting their coats over each other’s heads. Someone did it to me and I screamed, cried, kicked and hit until I was free. I scared everyone even myself. This was my first experience with claustrophobia and at the time I wasn’t sure why I reacted the way I did. As an adult, I will avoid pretty much everything and anything that might make me feel claustrophobic... even something as simple as wearing a hospital mask over my mouth and nose is very uncomfortable for me. I’ll sweat, breathe heavily and take it off every two seconds to get a bug gulp of air. 🚁 Something that happened more recently was when I went skydiving this summer. When I agreed to go I had no idea that when I jumped out of that plane I would not be able to breathe during the free fall. No one tells you that ahead of time because to most people it probably isn’t a big deal, it’s only a few seconds but to me it was an eternity. When we jumped out of the plane I couldn’t even enjoy the experience until that parachute was pulled. All I could think about was that I couldn’t breathe and how long until she pulled the shoot. 💦 So, why did I agree and pay for a week of scuba dive training in Thailand? Firstly, I don’t know if you’ve noticed but I like to take risks and really push myself. I want to see if I can conquer this life long fear. Secondly, my instructor is a friend I have known for a very long time and well respected in his profession. Stay tuned 😰💦😱
👉🏻 What is one thing you do and have to do each morning before you can start your day on the right foot?! 🐾 For me, it is letting Cali up on the bed for a 15 minute snuggle! Snuggling with her makes me feel good but it also stops me from grabbing my phone as soon as I wake up. It allows me to lay in bed for an extra 15 minutes and not go for my phone the second I wake up. Instead, when I wake up, I call Cali, get a good snuggle in and allow myself to just lay there and think about how I am going to tackle this new day. 📷: @business_nate _ _ _ _ _ _ _ #pitbulladvocate #pitbulllove #ilovepitbulls #girlswithbullies #rescuedogsofig #dogsofcanada #puppysnuggles #dailyfluff #womenwholead #theeverydaygirlathome #alittlebeautyeveryday #theeverydayproject #makeitblissful #myheartisfull #feelthefeelings #raiseyourvibration #goalgetter #vibratehigher #attitudeofgratitude #thinkgrowprosper #behappynow #dontquityourdaydream #livemoremagic #womenceo #ceolife #beyourownboss #BYOboss #lovewhatyoudo #lovewhatyoudodowhatyoulove #dogsthatsmile
#fbf This is me 10 years ago, I was 22 years old... so cute and young with absolutely no idea what I was doing with my life. I can see the uncertainty in my face. There was a lot going on in my brain at the time. My friend talked me into going to this party to get me out of the house. You could say, I was going through a "quarter life crisis." I had just: 💙 left my high school sweetheart 👩‍🎓 dropped out of university 😳 rented a scuzzy apartment 👩‍💼 and started a new job. All of the above were some of the best decisions I've ever made. The new job I had found catapulted me into a career that taught me so much and built my confidence like nothing else ever had. It had me traveling all over the world, managing millions of dollars in company revenue and making $100K a year before I was 30 years old. ✨ Just like at 16 when I left home because I couldn't see myself living that JW life 👉🏻 at 22 I knew I had to make some big life changes again. ✨ Looking back now, I realize that all of these big changes aren't any different from what I did about a year and half ago. Quitting this amazing job that I had worked so hard at for the past 9 years and starting my own business was just as scary as everything I had went through at 16 and at 22. Friends and family thought I was nuts, they said things like: 👉🏻"you're crazy, your job is awesome" 👉🏻 "your job has you traveling all over the place, don’t give that up" 👉🏻 "don't give up a job that is stable, pays so well and gives you great benefits" I quit anyways. Don't get me wrong, becoming an entrepreneur hasn't been all sunshine and flowers but it's been more satisfying then any other job I've ever had! ✨"Sometimes people around you won't understand your journey. They don't need to, it's not for them." - Unknown✨

Trying to get wifi where the wifi is weak... 😆🙄 As you could imagine I’m on my phone A LOT. As I get busier with more clients I notice myself online checking up on posts more and more. Recently, I’ve started putting my phone on airplane mode after 8pm on some evenings in an effort to reduce my screen time and have more “me time.” I must say it’s been nice not reaching for my phone every time it lights up or buzzes. 👇🏻 Does your biz keep you on your phone a lot?

Just thinking about how I’m going to take over the world. Happy Saturday! 📷: @bleachedblack
We’re exactly 3 weeks away from our 6 week vacay in Southeast Asia!! I cannot wait. 🌴 I shouldn’t really call it a full vacay because I will be working while I’m there, both @business_nate and I will be. That’s the beauty and the pitfall of having an online business I guess. We can getaway but work is always just a power button away. ☀️ The first week I will be in full on vacation mode but the remainder I will be working 3 days per week to keep up and keep my lovely clients happy. It’s been a crazy hustle getting organized for this working abroad experience and I am beyond excited for the payoff! 🏝🏖🍹🏊🏻‍♀️🧘‍♀️ 📷: @bleachedblack _ _ _ _ _ _ #maketimeforyou #digitalmarketingagency #entrepreneurlife #reinspired #womenwhohike #getoutside #womenwhoexplore #stayandwander #canadiancreatives #adventurewomen #growyourbusiness #findyourbliss #getoutstayout #staywildish #wildandwonderful #thailandherewecome #thailandtravel #travelmore #wandermore #digitalnomadgirls #digitalnomadlife #exploretocreate #manifestyourdreams #canadianentrepreneur #ontheroam #lifeontheroad

Sleeping in... when I was young I could sleep til noon. My dad used to come into my room and tell me I’m wasting my life away sleeping. 💤 Fast forward to today, since becoming an entrepreneur I am awake at the crack of dawn most days. I usually wake up to my brain swirling with all kinds of ideas or Cali licking my hand waiting for me to tell her she can come up on the bed. 🐾 It is funny because when I worked for someone else, I’d wake up everyday hitting snooze wishing to sleep longer. When I first decided to take the leap into entrepreneurship I thought how awesome it would be to make my own schedule that would allow me to sleep in and start my day later... but I quickly realized my brain wouldn’t allow it. I have too many things going on in my head to be able to sleep in much anymore. I keep a notepad next to my bed because I seem to come up with the best ideas when I first wake up. Anyone else do this?? 📝 There are definitely times that I wish I could sleep in or even take a nap but my brain just won’t allow it. If it’s light outside I am not sleeping. 😴 What’s your internal clock like? Has your sleep pattern changed immensely over the years? 📷 Thanks for this beautiful capture @business_nate _ _ _ _ _ _ _ #pitbullove #pitbulladvocate #dogsofcanada #puppylove #hustlepreneur #hustleharder #womenpreneur #canadiancreatives #herpnwlife #aspiretoinspire #inspiredaily #lovewhatyoudo #squamishdogs #squamishcreatives #dailyfluff #dogsthathike #dogsthatsnuggle #pitbullofficial #pitbull_love #dogswhotravel #createeveryday #womenwholead #sevendayweekend #manifestyourdreams #goodvibestribe #ilovemybed #liveabundantly
Seriously Vancouver, could you be any prettier. #tbt to my first ever flight in a seaplane! The view doesn’t get any better than this🤗 👉🏻Isn’t it funny how when you step outside your normal, so many new things come to light. I had one of those “ah-ha moments” the other day just by taking a small step outside of one of my comfort zones. 👉🏻When’s the last time you had an “ah-ha moment” that just blew your mind?
✨ Follow Your Soul... It Knows The Way
“Plot quietly and humbly. Manifest fruitfully and abundantly.” ~ @bossladiesmindset Since returning from our Oregon-Cali road trip in August, I have been making some bold moves silently based on some goals that I made for myself and my business. I must say it feels amazing watching them come to fruition. After 9 years in the tech sales industry and 14 months of running my business full-time I’ve learnt a thing or two... 👉🏻Actions matter. How we treat others, speak to others, collaborate with others, stay true to our word and so much more all make us who we are. Our reputation is everything. 👉🏻Results speak loudly. When we do well, it shows. It might not show right away but it all comes around in the end. 👉🏻 Stay humble. When our goals are met and the universe is praising us, take it. Be proud of yourself all while keeping this good ol’ phrase in the back of your mind ~ “it takes years to build a reputation and minutes to ruin it.” 👉🏻Competition is good! It’s ok that someone else does what you do. Let it drive us. Let it push us to stay one step ahead, to always be learning and to always be on our toes! There’s still much more to learn but these basics are key in my opinion. Do you have anything to add? _ _ _ _ _ #ontheroam #entrepreneurmindset #beachlifevibes #oregoncoast #travelcalifornia #wanderlust #digitalnomads #california_igers #explorers #lifeasweroamit #roadtrek #roamers #travelphotography #beachphotography #dogsthatexplore #dogsthathike #dogsthatroam #iloveithere #pnwcollective #herpnwlife #california_surf #womenwhoexplore #canadiancreatives #womenwholead #lovewhatyoudo #aspiretoinspire #manifestyourdreams #loveabundantly #goodvibestribe
