I’ve noticed that I don’t follow many people on social media who work in the same industry as I do. It’s not something I initially did on purpose but I have become more aware of those I choose to follow online. While there are certainly many great people to draw inspiration from, I don’t want to put myself in a position where I’m trying to mimic, replicate, or compete with what they’re doing. One thing I’ve experienced is that there’s a fine line between inspiration and imitation. Continue reading “Who Do You Follow & Why?”
Today’s post is inspired by a fortune cookie my daughter opened for me over the weekend. I’d gone from feeling very empowered after a meeting with a writing mentor to feeling a little discouraged on my business front. Continue reading “Attack Success”

I have to admit that I’ve never been very good at receiving criticism. Growing up it was laid on thick with no regard to how it would make me feel. As I got older, I didn’t know how to handle it. I took it very personally and when I felt it was coming, I’d put my guard up. The problem is, it was detrimental to me. Instead of being open to the feedback that could help me improve, I’d do the adult version of sticking my fingers in my ears and humming so I couldn’t hear or receive the message.

Happy Monday everyone! I hate to sound like a broken record, I know I recently shared a similar message but I have a feeling someone needs to be reminded of this today. In a world of instant gratification and instant results, it’s easy to feel like we’re failing or lacking in some way when things don’t come together as quickly as we’d like or on the first time around.

We live in a strange world today, driven by money and systems. We have a system for everything and while we might feel free, we are just in a big cage doing someone else’s bidding. We work 8- 9 hours a day on most days of our lives and come home to our family tired and exhausted. We sleep almost the same amount of time in order to function properly and our main function is to work, mostly for someone else. On most days of our lives, we only have a few hours for ourselves or those close to us but we are tired during these hours. Continue reading “Take A Leap of Faith”
For the past year, I’ve been intentionally pushing myself beyond my comfort zone. I’ve been taking steps to turn my dreams into reality, building my business in a way that’s not conventional yet fits into my life and vision perfectly, and taking opportunities that make me nervous. Many times throughout the year, I’ve faced situations that made me feel uncomfortable; not only because I was taking chances. I was also in situations that challenged me to use my voice in a way I wasn’t used to. Continue reading “Results Outweigh Discomfort”
Today’s post comes from Lauren, a lawyer from Sydney who is currently taking a break from law. Thank you, Lauren, for sharing your story with us ❤
I was sitting at my desk in my little cupboard office on the morning I published my article Why your worst fears are nothing to be afraid of. How did I have the audacity to I speak about conquering fear when it was the catalyst to my emptiness? Fear was eating me from the inside out. I had no right to even suggest that someone should leave the job that paralyzes them when that’s exactly what I couldn’t do.
