Alison Faulkner  Sharer, carer, inappropriate dancer. πŸ’ƒ πŸŽ™Podcast: Awesome with Alison! πŸ’—: Workshops, events, fun & love πŸ’Œ [email protected]

Woooooork shopping! But never too busy for a quick photo op πŸ˜‚. Today was my second Build an Awesome Brand Workshop! I LOVE talking about branding because 1. It's what I've been doing for myself for 10 years and I've got so much to say πŸ˜‚and 2. it gets down super deep under the surface to find the motivation behind our businesses. It's emotional work, biznazz work, tough work, but rewarding work, and I'm so humbled that people allow me to share with them! Look at these hard working students! πŸ™ŒπŸ» I'll be doing more workshops, and business to business consulting, but for now I'm just relishing in the delight of people trusting me to try something new. Such a gift, and I'm super grateful. Also grateful to babe student @elliecoxphoto for snapping this photo! Thank you love! And now I shall crash. Haha! #alisonspartypalace

Just sitting in my giant clam, clutching my pearl pillow, waiting for all the beautiful people coming to my Build an Awesome Brand workshop tomorrow! Why anyone trusts me I'LL NEVER KNOW! Kidding, I do know, it's because when you're with me any-fin is possible. Kidding again! It's because I know how to have a shell of a time! Ok ok no seriously, you guys, it's because I turn branding troubles into bubbles. Ok ok I will stop and just enjoy this clam before the storm. 🐬 #alisonspartypalace

When you're really excited about your new nails, but you're trying to be subtle about it. πŸ˜‚πŸ’ #younaileditalison

If you want to shift your entire perspective, reframe a problem you're having right now, or laugh with a wildly inspiring woman, stop drop and roll on over to my podcast #awesomewithalison (link in profile!) and listen to the story of my new love @melanieday ! Melanie has been sharing her story as a terminal cancer victim on her blog Five Years to Live. πŸ’› Melanie shares the habits she let go of with her diagnosis, her insights from doing chemo while pregnant–as well as giving us all tips for how to support a loved one with cancer, and divulges her plans for making every day exactly what she wants it to be! I cannot thank @melanieday enough for spending some of her precious time with me, so I could share this all with you. I know you'll love it and feel more awesome after listening! Love you all!

I like to think of overalls as the jumpsuit's casual cousin! Which is why I just can't quit them. #alisonspartypalace

The challenge for this week for #alisonsyearofawesome is: Persist and Resist! Persist in the face of fear, doubt and discouragement and resist letting them keep you from doing what you must. As the cutest little reminder for cultivating courage (the awesome attribute for the month of February) @light_and_ink made these super gorg mirror quotes! πŸ™ŒπŸ» Both the calendar and the quote are a free download in my newsletter! You missed this mirror quote going out today, but I might share it again! So sign up for my newsletter because I try to make it a fun weekly way to assess your awesomeness. I write new original content for it, and always offer early things. Here's to a week of persisting and resisting!!! Love you all! #yearofawesome

I've been wanting to share my love for my friend @mintarrow with you for a while, I have known her for years but more recently been exposed to her genius and beautiful soul, and can say she's just living life right! I can wait no longer to share my love! You must get her in your life! Among other things @mintarrow finds high end deals, and that's how I scored this new wallet at 60% off (she has early access to sales and share them)! But she's so much more than that! In a world where it's tempting to do any campaign that comes your way, Corrine refuses to share anything other than what she believes in and what serves her audience. She's as stubborn and selective as I am about what I share πŸ˜‚ and also boldly shares her beliefs, opinions and values. I could not respect @mintarrow more! So yes, go follow her for the amazing sales, products, and style she has, but you'll stay because of her values, high standards and purpose. I won't ever be as classy as you Corrine πŸ˜‚ but at least my wallet is now! Thanks for taking the time I don't want to take to find these steals, and for being an inspiring boss lady too. πŸ™ŒπŸ»πŸ˜˜

Well, they're definitely mine!

I've been getting lots of questions about the "secret" of my recent weight loss. And I haven't wanted to talk about it because 1. THERE IS NO SECRET πŸ˜‚πŸ˜˜ and 2. I feel like I already am!!! What do you think this whole shift I've been doing is about?! The Year of Awesome calendar and the podcast?! To me it's so much part of the journey. But I am ready to share more, so in this weeks podcast episode I'm covering it all! Here's what you'll get: ❀️ My back story with my weight, I was a fat kid and have been on diets since I was 9. ❀️ How my weight (and weight loss or gain) has always been a big part of my definition of myself UNTIL NOW, and how I got to that point. ❀️ The mental steps I took to get to a place where I had the energy to lose weight. ❀️The books I read that helped me get there. ❀️ The technical details of how I lost weight, as in counting calories- And that stuff! ❀️ I share the Gratitude Practice that I do on my walks and runs, and how it has changed my life and made exercise more fun. ❀️ I give you my top tip for finding the motivation to change the way you see your body and your relationship with food. πŸ™ŒπŸ» On my blog I share some more detail about how much I exercise. But please don't miss the point. The point is I loved myself at my heaviest and it helped me get to a healthier place in every aspect of my life. I'm not a health and fitness coach, I'm just sharing my personal experience. I share because I care and I love you! Link to listen in profile!

Sometimes I feel like the universe is just beating me with sticks. Like I'm a giant piΓ±ata and the universe knows EXACTLY which sticks break me, so it hits me harder and harder. And right when I piece myself back together and learn a lesson...WHACK. Another hit. I said this to @pleasantpictures and he reminded me that sometimes I also dress like a giant piΓ±ata. πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚ I HAD HONESTLY FORGOTTEN. And it's true. So I guess I should have seen it all coming??! But deep down I know the universe isn't out to get me, I'm not a victim. The whacks make me stronger, and unlike a real piΓ±ata I'm in charge of if I break. And I mean look at that effing mug! STICKS BEWARE. πŸ˜‚πŸ™ŒπŸ» Thanks @mrsbrijenkins for turning me into a piΓ±ata that one time for #alisonsbirthdaygetdown talk about a self-fulfilling prophesy. πŸ“Έ @trevorchristensen πŸ’„πŸ’ @vivianmakeupartist & @jessnewcombhairstyling
