Do you struggle with asking for what you want and need? 🧐

If you’re anything like me, your answer is a reluctant YES. 😩

Believe me when I say I’ve definitely struggled with “making the ask” in both professional and personal situations. But I’ve turned a corner with this struggle over the past few months and really have become quite comfortable with asking.
And really, you can’t build a business that matters to you without asking for things along the way. Feedback, insight, sales, whatever - asks are everything in the journey of business growth.
So when my friend and Negotiation Expert, Devon Smiley @devonmsmiley asked to feature me on her #IMadeTheAsk blog series, of course I was game!
In my feature article, I basically spill my guts about… - The past 5 years and how sweaty ellipticals, a terrible stint in client relations, and one big leap of faith led me to today 😱
- Which ask I didn’t make.. and now regret 😟
- Which ask I’m most proud of 😁
- Which ask has been the biggest for me 🙌🏼
- And my #1 piece of advice to YOU as you gear up to make your own asks 💁🏼‍♀️ Catch the feature article on Devon’s blog, linked right in my bio! 🙋🏼‍♀️

My cardio workout from the other day!💪🏻
I woke up early, and got in my 25 minute workout done! It was amazing! ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
But can I share something with you? When my alarm when off that morning I was going to hit snooze and not workout. Sometimes I’m not motivated to workout, I am human after all🤷🏼‍♀️
I’m so glad though that I didn’t hit snooze that morning though and that I got my a** out of bed, because I felt amazing afterwards.
You can feel amazing too! All it takes is a simple change in your life, message me if your ready to make that change! 💕

It’s not a one time buy it and you’ve got it type thing. Confidence is something that has to be renewed daily. #iamsimplybeautiful #adesertrose #istandalone

You got to enjoy the journey...right?!
So many things when running a business make me anxious 😩. Today is one of those days, growth is key...but with growth comes a whole set of problems. Lots of people you are suddenly responsible. 🤯

Happy week everyone!! When I tuned in for this week I heard: Flexibility, Release your fears, Determination and focus on what inspires and heals you.

This is the last week of June and it starts off as an emotional one.

It asks us to keep going with determination and clear focus. It's that feeling like everyone else has given up and you're the only one left thinking should I stick with this or should I go with everyone else?

This week the energy will ask you to keep your vibration high as things will come at you that may threaten your mood, feelings and vibe.

You must keep going even in the face of uncertainty. after all, uncertainty keeps life interesting!

Deepen your sense of adventure, get excited for what's coming even if you don't know what that is. The best really is yet to come.

As we begin the week all these fears may come up for some of you. Fears, doubts, fears of abandonment, fears of not being good enough, fears of not reaching your goals, and fears of being lefft behind by people you know and were close to. It's this fear of when your friends no longer want to hang out with you and you feel like you did something wrong. In reality, your vibrations are no longer a match. Your frequency is different and therefore people just sort of vanish without real reason and with no fault of either party. All of these fears are coming up to be healed as they usually are and they may feel more intense because you feel like you're going through it alone.

Fears of failure may also come up as we are in the middle of the year and you may have had a lot of goals that you wanted to achieve by this time. You may feel sad, that you havent achieved these goals and are focused on what you were able able to accomplish.
This is a time where they are asking you to stick with it. Stop focusing on what went wrong, what you didn't accomplish, the people who no longer resonate with you and keep looking and moving forward. Release those fears, cry, jurnal, vent, speak to someone.

Remember why you started what you started. Remember who you are, remember what inspires and brings you joy and get into that energy. It's a sort of test of will asking you to keep going despite

Let's walk into this week and drop the expectations, the judgement, the constant comparison, the overthinking, any feelings of unworthiness or self-sabotage. When we own where we are, what we have and who we came here to be, we set ourselves up to be a magnet for our wildest desires. Be gentle with yourself lovely, you're killing it by doing the best you can. 💯👏

You want a different outcome then you have to decide to do something about it.
Not your spouse, best friend, child.
But you.
I know easier said than done and especially if you’re not used to any change let alone major change this seems almost impossible.
It isn’t.
Just know you have options.
You always have options for a different outcome. It doesn’t have to be what is happening right now.
Usually it takes a breaking point for most to change. I know. I needed something major to shift for me into action to start saying this isn’t what I want.
But once I decided to change. It became easier and easier not to accept a story that I wasn’t aligned with.
You’ve got to decide you’re done.
Fed up.
Ready for more.
What it really comes down to is you.
What do you want your story to be?

What’s YOUR secret dream?

Really F E E L into it. You know you have one.

But maybe there is a part of you that doesn’t think you can have it.

Maybe it isn’t “realistic.”

Maybe you are so afraid of failing that you might as not even try.

Perhaps you keep telling yourself that you’ll do it “someday.”

Two years ago, my husband looked at me across the dinner table on my birthday and asked me how it felt to be halfway to 90. I almost spit out my wine.

I realized I still wasn’t living the way I wanted to. I had convinced myself I couldn’t make my dream a reality.

What. The. Hell.

I started taking turtle steps towards my dream of becoming a Coach. And now, two years later, I am living my dream. And you can live yours too.

Don’t let your secret dream DIE in your chest.

I am looking to interview 3 more women to help me create a powerful container based on helping women discover their magic and unleash their secret dream. Because we ALL deserve to be fulfilled.

If you feel like you are a women who's been holding a dream close to your chest for YEARS and are now ready to take it off that dusty shelf and bring it to life - I'd love to hear from you.

In exchange for 30 minutes of your time, I'd love to offer you my 60 Minute Magic Mentoring session.

Don’t waste another minute putting off designing a life that excites you.

Send me a DM or respond below with “YES, Please!” and I will send you a link to my calendar.
The world is ready for your magic! 🔮
