Financial Freedom Friday – Quietly Building

I am not just DREAMING… I am DOING.

I am more of a quiet hustler… not completely silent, but I am quietly moving along and doing girl boss things.

Being surrounded by like-minded people last week has only strengthened my resolve to achieve financial freedom. And its only been recently that I started to truly believe it was possible. I knew it was before, too, but we kept going 1 step forward, several steps back, and it was discouraging to some degree.

But here, in the now… I know it’s possible. I know it’s in motion. I know it’s not overnight, but I know it is happening. I am working hard, and quietly but seriously building the life I WANT, not the one given by default.

Are you? Do you want to be? Do you think we could do it together? Because… I DO! And I would love to!

Thankful Thursday – My Awesome Husband

Nothing I do could be done without this guy. I know, I sound so co-dependent, but it’s not that… he is the fire that keeps me going when I doubt myself (happens), when I feel like giving up (happens), when I feel like I don’t matter or make a difference (happens), when I feel like I could possibly not give more of myself or do anything more (happens)… no matter what, this guy keeps me going.

He encourages me, and has from day one. I am sure when I told him I wanted to do this, he probably had his doubts like most other spouses, but I think he saw the light when he saw how passionate and excited I am to help people. When he saw things that meant so much to me that I couldn’t help but cry, I think he realized just how much this means to me.

He has never wavered in his support of or belief in me, and that is priceless. I am sure it is a struggle to see someone go through so much, and I am sure it can’t be easy to encourage someone to keep going when they feel drained and depleted; completely defeated.

But not this guy. He redirects me towards my goals. He points out how much people have said I help them. He pushes me to keep going, to be the best me I can be, to reach more people, help more people.

He knows I am doing this to give us a better life. To give our dog a better life. To give the kids we haven’t yet been blessed with a better life.

And the last two years, he has attended Summit with me. So he firsthand witnesses the sheer exhaustion. He witnesses how jazzed up I come back from workshops and workouts. He sees me light up when I attempt to share how it feels to workout at the crack of dawn with 25,000 like-minded people.

I have always struggled with self doubt and feeling like I matter; like I am visible, not invisible. And he reinforces on the daily that I matter, that I am making a difference, that I can do this, and that I am worthy of it all.

And bonus: he doesn’t point out that I LOOK as tired as I am, haha. Beyond grateful for this guy ❤

Motivation Monday – Cheers

The Monday after an awesome, inspiring, enlightening, education, and just plain effing awesome vacation? My only thought is cheers!

Cheers to this beautiful life. Cheers to having the strength and stamina to go after what we want. Cheers to being strong, resilient ladies (and gentlemen!). Cheers to being here experiencing this roller coaster called L I F E.

I raise my glass to you, girl boss. Let’s go do big things!

Thankful Thursday – It Takes A Village

In less than a week, I get to see some of my tribe at Coach Summit in NOLA. I see the local ones at trainings and such, but we are scattered throughout the country, so I am excited to see the ones not so local.

These people have propped me up when I am down. They have helped me with notes, with calls, with confidence, with mindset, with everything under the sun.

I am THANKFUL for them, and GRATEFUL for them. I am blessed to be part of this team; blessed to link arms with these men and women, and march on in our quest to better ourselves, our lives, the lives of others and the world. I didn’t know when I decided to become a Coach that my cup was going to feel so very full, but I am so grateful for it.

No one stands alone, for it truly takes a village!
