DON’T QUIT, TAKE A BREAK WHEN YOU FEEL OVERWHELMED


DON’T QUIT, TAKE A BREAK WHEN YOU FEEL OVERWHELMED

Just returned home from a bachelorette party…I’ll be honest, the late nights, drinking more than my non – existent drinking, no sleep, activity after activity…all the things I used to do on the weekends as a twenty something took a toll this morning as a thirty something.

Before kid: sleep two days and back to action.

Now…completely different ballgame.

I’m writing to you as it snows heavily outside the window and my husband sits next to me reading a book. I asked him if he could turn the TV off, so I could focus. Also, because I’m propped up against a tennis ball on my shoulder blade because my neck is stiff (too many head whips).

I started to tell him about the Break Free Masterminder‘s training on commitment and how it’s the thing I struggle with the most. Who am I to teach? But almost every goal I’ve set for myself, I’ve hit. I just forgot and needed someone loving to remind me.

90 days with private clients is like the snap of a finger. I’ve been coaching this program for so long, it’s easy now. Clients get fast results that last a lifetime:

***Tara lost 23 pounds and stopped having to take laxatives for chronic diarrhea (first time she’s been off them in 6 years and we did that in less than 90 days). If that’s not a win…

***Anne’s marriage blew up in the best way and her and her husband started couple’s counseling, their marriage is deep and expansive. OH and she’s starting her own business, a superfood coffee company. Can’t wait to become a customer.

***Jenna lost 25+ pounds and continues to be a fitness bad ass, I watch her going to workout classes on her insta stories. She’ll be with us at the Activate Your Gifts Retreat in April, her second Fearful to Fit retreat.

6 month mastermind is like, holy shit, there is so much to do between teaching weekly trainings that come with handouts, small group coaching sessions, 3 in person meetings and bonus guides along the way.

And the doors are open for 3 more women to join THIS MONTH, so there’s on-boarding and getting them set up in the membership site, introducing them to the group, etc.

All of this is happening while our babysitter moved and snowmaggedon hit.

It’s not like I’m crazy overwhelmed, I’m just tired today.

Obviously, dancing until 3:00am in snow boots will do that to you.

But the show must go on.

So, my gift to you is this: do not quit, take a break.

Stay committed to your goals and fiercely protect them.

It’s worth it and hey, maybe I create a year – long program in 2020. WHO KNOWS?!

most people stop right before they hit it big

You hear it all the time, right?

Like Chrissy Metz, from This Is Us. She had 70 cents left in her bank account when she auditioned for her starring role and SHE GOT THE JOB!

Most people hit it big years and years after they put in the work, the time, the sacrifice.

I don’t like reading about the one year wonders…”In the first 90 days of my business, I hit $1 million dollars.” It’s so discouraging and I’d bet my right foot it’s not true.

As I was planning out the next 90 days of my biz, I started thinking about a time in college when I was going to teach a dance class.

I was so scared.

I took this Cardio Groove dance class twice a week for almost two years before the instructor suggested I start teaching it.

First of all, she was like an expert dancer in my eyes, so the fact that she thought I could fill her shoes left my jaw dropped to the floor.

I didn’t think twice about accepting. HELL YA. I got to work.

I started practicing and teaching my friends, which ended in hysterical laughter because how the hell do you 8 – count?

My background was in gymnastics and cheer and it always took me three times as long to learn dances with counts, than 90% of the team.

But I accepted the challenge….kind of…

The day before my audition, I went out (I was in college).

Not the smartest thing to do.

I drank too much and ended up breaking my ankle and foot.

Easy excuse – no audition.

I think the broken foot thing happened because of fear.

I was so freakin’ scared about auditioning and subconsciously I was trying to get out of it, so I ended up “getting out of it.”

Definitely would’ve been easier to say, I’m not ready. But that’s not my style, so instead I had to break my foot.

I’ll never know what could’ve happened had I not gone out, had I practiced until I was confident I could do it, had I told her I needed more time or more guidance to teach the class while counting, etc. etc. etc.

Here’s what I do know…

We never know how anything is going to turn out unless we do it.

Unless we take off the life jacket and fuckin’ sink or swim.

Little secret…

No one sinks.

We might tread water or go in a little too deep, but we breast stroke to the other side. Sure, with some panting and wheezing but WE MAKE IT.

Tenacity.
Persistence.
Drive.
Passion.
Integrity.
Commitment.
Purpose.


If you’re reading this, You possess those qualities, J?

What it’s like being a successful female biz owner with diagnosed ADD + ADHD

Ladies…

It is no easy task, to stay on task. RIGHT!?

I didn’t know how much harder and yet easier things would get after having a kid.

On one hand, your schedule is not your own. You are a slave to your house during nap time and your previous life of just leaving on a whim, disappears.

On the other hand, you learn how to get 1,200 things done in less than that two hour nap time.

I’m actually writing during his nap time right now and I have a list of like 10 tasks I need to finish for my business, but I thrive under pressure and they don’t need to be done for four days.

Let me share with you the task list of a successful biz owner with no team (yet).

  • Creating PowerPoints for Break Free Mastermind training.
  • Writing a book
  • Finishing a product so my graphic designer can start creating the look
  • paying Costco, Amazon and regular credit card
  • Enrolling early birds into the Activate your Gifts Retreat (the planning process hasn’t even begun yet and we’re less than 3 months away)
  • Sending session notes to private clients
  • Creating a 5 day challenge with free guides and an opt in page
  • Sending welcome letters to retreaters
  • Trying to figure out what I can automate
  • Social media for my second Instagram account “In My Sweats” named after my podcast
  • Recording a new podcast

I told my Fearful to Fit Fam that I’d be taking them on the journey with me. I wanted to show more behind the scenes of the unglam life of owning a biz and really doing 20% coaching and 80% biz.

In the last three years I went from $1,000 – $3,000 per month and now I’m averaging over $14,000 per month.

This is why I’m letting you in on the not so pretty. The 12-14 hour work days and why I wouldn’t want to do anything else, but this.

So, what’s it like owning a biz with two learning disabilities?

I use them to fire me up.

Having ADD and ADHD means I can do A LOT at one time. Like a scatter brained mongoose on the loose. She’s crossing her t’s and dotting her i’s but it’s more of a round about way then the rest of them.

I finish everything I start.

That wasn’t the case a few years ago. It’s a muscle I’ve had to grow and it pays off immensely.

I’m also more committed to plans than I ever have been.

Another muscle.

I’m a deep feeler, like so many of us ADD women.

And when I don’t feel my peppiest, I don’t want to be around people.

If I’m already zapped, I don’t want to be more zapped.

BUT if I constantly go with my feelings, I’d never leave the house!

So, I’m pretty good now…***instantly flashed to my toddler not sleeping and me canceling all my plans.***

Here are the best ways I know how to cope with a very active, excited mind:

Write it down. Whatever it is. Write that shit down. An idea? A grocery item? A bill you have to pay?

Say it out loud. Tell someone your idea and see how they respond. Are they like, “OOOooooooooo” or “oh?”

Walk outside or on the treadmill. THIS IS KEY to moving stuck energy around. I do jumping jacks and jump up and down before I give a master class to hype myself up.

Take deep breaths before doing a Facebook Live. I do this to calm my nerves. Some days I don’t want to be seen, I want to hide in my house under the comfiest blanket ever, but I don’t. Wanting vs. doing = two very different things

Turn the music on. When you feel stuck or stagnant – pump that shit up and start a family dance party or even party of one.

I took meds for ADD for four years and it royally screwed me up. I cut out sugar, gluten and dairy a long time ago and it helped immensely. I drink green juices and smoothies for energy and clearing the foggy head. I love basil and herbs and use them to heighten the taste of food – and they are epstein barr killers (I have it) so I use natural herbs to kill the pathogens.

I stay away from caffeine. It makes me panicky and sweaty.

I drink tons of water.

But these things don’t work for everybody. I developed a blueprint for my diagnosis and help other female biz owners do the same with their diagnosis.
