Alison Faulkner  I believe in inappropriate dancing, love and jumpsuits. πŸ’ƒ Writer, podcaster, branding coach + tools for awesomeness. πŸŽ™Podcast: Awesome with Alison!

If people try to tell you your idea/dream/vision won't work, PLEASE remember that I've built an entire business with "nonsense dancing" as one of its only consistent offerings. True story.

I've spent the day working with my team of BABES for the new, larger, and even more fun Build an Awesome Brand Workshop I'm hosting tomorrow! And you guys, I think my favorite thing, of all the things, is watching people come together, people who I respect and admire, and watching them bring their heart and unique talents and skills to make something I feel passionate about, even better. It makes me πŸ’ƒβœ¨πŸ˜­. We've got nearly 40 awesome humans coming to grow and learn about building meaningful brands tomorrow (πŸ™ŒπŸ»πŸ‘―πŸ¦ˆ), and I could not be more excited to welcome them into the awesomeness so many are working to create. Yes, it's The ALISON Show, πŸ˜‚πŸ’ but I hope you guys know that you, me, NO ONE can build anything truly exceptional on their own. We all need each other. The second I stopped trying to do it all is the second things got better. ❀️🌟 I just feel really honored and blessed to get to do what I do. Thank you! #buildandbeawesome πŸ“Έ and thanks @omarprestwich for this picture because you know I like to feel like the paparazzi is following me πŸ˜‚πŸ˜˜

And thiiiiiiiis about sums it up! πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚ We JUST made our most recent podcast episode live! And in it we share a little disagreement @pleasantpictures and I had this week πŸ˜‚ and we're asking you guys to tell us if you're #teameric or #teamalison πŸ’ it's all in good fun, and pretty hysterical, so be sure to listen and let us know! πŸ’ƒβ€οΈβœ¨ This weeks episode is really good, I'm gonna say it's FIRE πŸ”₯πŸ”₯πŸ”₯ so if you need a pump up listen!! Ep: 28 Why it doesn't matter that other people are doing what you want to do! ❀️ Our podcast is #awesomewithalison --which you can listen to on iTunes, or Stitcher (for android)! The show notes and blog post with the player will be up soon! πŸ™ŒπŸ»πŸŒŸπŸ¦ˆ πŸ“Έ Thank you @justinhackworth for this amazingly awesome picture.

I had THE MOST FUN day popping in LA to attend and talk a little bit about branding for @hedleyandbennett and @instagramforbusiness super awesome #schoolofhustle ! Thanks @ellenmariebennett for making every human you talk to feel inspired, loved, and special! Such a gift. I adore you. And LA I love you too! Why do I not come more often?! I need to get back here for longer than 12 hours next time.

Ok! I normally do not accept requests OR tend to live in the past (gotta keep diva status) πŸ˜‚ BUT seeing as you were all SOOOO NICE πŸ˜‚πŸ’our wedding was FABULOUS, over 9 years ago AND social media in this form did not exist (can you imagine what a monster I would have been?! πŸ˜‚πŸ’) it is a little fun you are interested! SO IM SHARING A TASTE! Grab your popcorn it's a slide show. 🌟 So we had a lovebird wedding, I've ALWAYS DONE THEMED EVENTS, we were married in San Diego, and I worked with @amorology who I still love to this day and highly recommend. As a human and event planner/stylist. Our reception had 300 sober dancing loved ones and friends (see I also always make people dance sober! It's my God-given gift), our invitations said, "Come eat, love, and boogie!" And our photographer @sarafrance could not get us to stop making out for pictures. πŸ˜‚ I had forgotten this but this weekend my mom reminded me that the person who married us said I was the happiest bride he had ever seen, and that I looked "almost delirious." Sounds about right. πŸ˜‚ @pleasantpictures helped choreograph the opening dance for our bridal party πŸ‘―πŸ‘―β€β™‚οΈ and my puns--which are a signature at all my events, were also sprinkled throughout this one too. LOVE TWEET LOVE GUYS! Like I said. I've always been this way. Which brings me to the point: let go of who you think you're supposed to be and love the hell out of who you are right now. πŸ™ŒπŸ» This doesn't mean you don't get to grow/change, it just means you've probably got everything you need, you just gotta figure out how to use it! ✨🌟✨ This concludes our random wedding recap weekend. πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚πŸ˜˜β€οΈβ€οΈ

Literally ONE person asked to see MY wedding dress, so yeah, this felt appropriate. That's @pleasantpictures and me about 9.5 years ago on the day he became the happiest man on earth. And I feel like this also answers a question you may have asked yourself, "Has she always been like that?" Yes. I have.

Happy happy happy day! MTB the MVP got married!!! No, not to me πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚ but you'd think so based on how happy and I've excited I've been for this day! @mstarabrooke is the wind beneath my wings, the reason I've been able to take anything I've been doing to the next level (you can thank her for making sure anything I do gets done on time/done really at all), and she's the most deserving of all the joy. Congrats @mstarabrooke and @cameronkirby I love you so freaking much! ❀️❀️❀️

Do the damn thing. πŸ™ŒπŸ»

Awesome leadership skills can help you in every aspect of life! In your job, as a parent, as a member of the community β€” the world needs good leaders! ❀️ That's why I'm so excited about our newest podcast episode: Traits of an awesome leader! We love our local mayor, @curtisut , and we are graced with his prestigious presence as he β€œTeaches us his ways!” πŸ‘―β€β™‚οΈ and shares things he’s learned about leadership as both the mayor of Provo as well as building his multi-million dollar business. πŸŒŸπŸ™ŒπŸ» Instead of getting all political we get straight up philosophical. THAT'S HOW I ROLL! You’ll learn simple actionable ideas you can implement today! I hope you'll listen!! πŸ‘― Our podcast is #awesomewithalison --which you can listen to on iTunes, or Stitcher OR there's a player with all the show notes on my blog! Link in profile!!!

Hashtag team Eric. For life. This man carries a heavy load some weeks. πŸ˜‚ I like to think I'm worth it, but it doesn't make me any less grateful.

See what happened is I brought the sharks πŸ¦ˆπŸ’ƒπŸ¦ˆ with me to help shake things up at the @perfectly_posh convention dance party! But unbeknownst to me @perfectly_posh had employed some cowboys to take it even next level. πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚πŸ΄πŸ΄ so naturally I commandeered them and made them dance with us. DUH. I got their IG handles for you πŸ’ because AS I ALWAYS SAY 🌟sharing is caring 🌟 @Jonniegale @Houston_theo @RhyGuyFye @Steven_Christensen πŸ‘―β€β™‚οΈπŸ‘―β€β™‚οΈ thanks boys! #thealisondanceshow #uncon

Today was pure magic! ✨ I got to stand in the power of 800 women all trying to build something greater than themselves, and it was one of the most amazing things ever! I've spoken to larger groups, I've done lots of keynotes. But THIS message I shared, which is that you can BUILD WHAT YOU FEEL CALLED TO BUILD-- it means the world to me. And being able to share it reminded me I can do it πŸ˜‚ and so can you! 🌟 And it's a freaking honor every single day I get to share it. To my new friends and old: Don't give up. Don't give up. It's hard. I swear it's so hard (probably doesn't have to be as hard as I make it πŸ˜‚πŸ™ŒπŸ») but holy hell there are shining magic moments that make it worth it. 🌟 And it was magic to be reminded. I love your freaking guts! ❀️ THANK YOU @perfectly_posh babes for the warmest most beautiful welcome! I can't wait to party with you all tomorrow night. 😘🌟#uncon
