⁣S T R I D E⁣

At the start of this year, I embraced the word "stride" and I'm making a consorted effort to make sure it's been in my actions through these first four-ish months of the year.⁣

It can be easy to forget our motivations from months ago. Take some time this Friday to scroll back through your notes or your feed or your email to remember what you were working towards when you set your intention in January. ⁣

Are you keeping your promises to yourself? ⁣

What would January you think of mid-April you?⁣

Thanks to @christa_rene for this shot from #creativeatheartround8

So I've found a new hobby thanks to my time spent with the one and only @jessicarasdall and the wonderful group of ladies in her speaker circle.⁣ 🎨⁣

I've never thought of my self as artistic. Creative, maybe, but definitely not an artist. Then Jess's mom introduced me to watercolor and now you'll find me pinning "easy" watercolor ideas and holing up at the kitchen island for 4 hours on a Saturday just to paint and let my mind unwind.⁣

Trying new things can be intimidating, especially as an Enneagram 1 Perfectionist. (I can assure you, my paintings never look the same as my Pinterest inspo.)⁣

But you know what? It's also allowed me to let go of some of that perfection. In watercolor, there's a lot of letting the paint do the work for you. A lot of letting go of control.⁣

It's the same with our business. Sometimes, the best thing we can do is let our tools work for us, and trust that they will do what they're intended to do.⁣

When we release a little control and our expectation for perfection, it can really lead to something wonderful.⁣

Shout out to @bethannearthur for the profesh photo from #creativeatheartround8.⁣

I love telling people what to do. 💁🏻‍♀️
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
Stay with me here. As an event planner, I get to dictate to my guests what they should do, where they should go, how they should act and how they should feel at any given moment simply by creating space or opportunity.🙌🏻
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
Check out this fab little pod in the back of the session room the designers at #creativeatheartround8 set up😍
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
This cozy little area says “welcome! Come over here for a sec, set down your drink, put up your feet on this chic little poof, chat with your new friend you just made about the incredible stuff you just learned! I’m an intimate space where you can make deeper connections!”🤗
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
Yes, a few little chairs and a plant really did just have ALL THAT POWER to make you FEEL something - adds so much dimension to an experience (and is not to mention JUST ADORABLE!)✨
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
So yes, I love to tell people what to do and how to feel through some intentional event design 🤗 ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
(And also can’t wait to see what gets cooked up at the next #creativeatheartconference ! I only wish I snagged a ticket! Will be stalking insta from afar to fond out! ) 🎉⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀

Hello Friends!! I’m back!! 💕😊💕
.
.
Going away to Disney was amazing + I can’t wait to recap our once in a lifetime (seriously!! Mom dream vaca) trip but for now you can see my smiling face! Ha! I had no intention of stepping away from social media but boy, was it great! As an entrepreneur, social media is another sector of work so the ability to jump on and off or scroll endlessly is not an option. It’s more like keeping a schedule for posting and showing my face on here. While this may seem like “well that’s easy,” my intentions for post are to be full of useful, educational information for my clients and other photogs. Yes there are loads of information to share with both sides but let’s face it, I’m a perfectionist (great for my clients, wearing on business and personal self) so I critic myself so so much! I am working on this! I often tell myself I am way harder on myself and look for imperfection in my work, be it editing images or proofing content.
.
.
So today is the perfect (<- - 😉 couldn’t help it! 😂) day to remind myself to love and nurture my passion and for the technical side... I’ve got this and no one is perfect so stop comparing myself to perfection! In essence... Love yourself woman!!
.
Happy Valentines Day!! 💕💕

Hey ya'll! I'm back. I've gotten so many messages and calls asking if I was ok and the answer to that is yes! I honestly just had to take a mini break from social media and just take a beat. With all the holidays and both of my kids birthdays are 4 days apart in December and January it was a lot. But now I'm back I've been working behind the scenes to create amazing content for you guys so thank you so much for all of your comments and concerns. I love all of you guys! 📸 @bethannearthur

When I graduated from Grad school I swore I was done with school! Now that I have found photography all I want to do is learn. I spend hours in the evening doing continuing education classes, learning everything I can about photography and running my business. I attended @creativeatheart last year and am so excited to be attending @hopetaylorphotography workshop next month and @creativeatheart again in June! Big things coming for @photographybymichelle_tn this year and I couldn’t be more excited! #photographybymichelletn #hopetaylorworkshop #creativeatheartround8 #creativeatheartround9

The off-season is this weird time when I don't always have 40 hours worth of work to do each week, and I've gotta be honest- it's uncomfortable. And that discomfort is so convicting! One of my FAVORITE takeaways from #creativeatheartround8 was @shaycochrane's mic drop-worthy sentiment: "hustle is [often] laziness in disguise."

Maybe I'm the only one, but I struggle with feeling like if I don't spend a FULL eight hours at my desk, that I'm not being productive, and I'm realizing just how much of my worth I put in business-related productivity.

But you know what else is productive? Spending quality time with friends. Or filling up my creative tank by doodling with a calligraphy pen. Or quilting. Or calling it a day at 2pm and going out for a movie date with Matt. Or napping. Or traveling to places that inspire me.

I've shared this vision thousands of times from the stage, in webinars, with our coaching students: "we desire to create a business that enables a LIFE we love, *not* a life governed by the business' needs." And yet somehow, I still sometimes find myself in the trap of thinking that work is the only-est, most important thing in my life.

But the fact of the matter is that I have other roles in my life that are equally, and often MORE important: being a wife, a daughter, the need to care for my own body with exercise, helping lead worship at our church, being a good and present friend... and on, and on.

Our work, it matters. It matters a lot. I wouldn't do it if it didn't! Our clients and students mean the world to me.

But I guess what I'm trying to say is that... work is not the ONLY thing that matters. And if we're constantly giving a Yes to work *at the expense of* those other roles in life we wish to fulfill, we're missing out on the very things that make life so rich in the first place.

Today’s the day that @creativeatheart round 9 launches. I had the most amazing time attending last year! Seats to this conference sold out in 3 hours last year so if you are tinkering with the idea of going this year, odds are seats will go fast again. The line up of educators is ohhhh so good this year. Do yourself and your business a favor and attend this conference at the beautiful @winmock in North Carolina. You won’t be disappointed! Also, one of my fav biz besties @jenkinsandcoweddings is a panel leader!!!! 💕

It wasn’t that long ago that I was in the beginning stages of my Wedding Planning Company ferociously searching IG for someone who could help me figure out how the HEC to run this biz... Behind all the pretty little details, i longed for the real nitty gritty biz tips that other planners were too cool to share. I stumbled upon this graceful, pink lovin’,share ALL the things gal named @katschmoyer who ran an amazing wedding planning biz called @dearsweetheartevents Not only was she SUPER successful, but she shared ALL of her knowledge with other planners so openly and freely, I was instantly fan girling and loving her so so much... fast fwd... insert this same pink lovin’ girl boss (as if she didn’t do enough sharing already) i found out she ran a conference called @creativeatheart and i DIED to be there.... in 2018, i gathered my pennies, ((all $1600 worth btw)) to ENSURE i had a seat at the table of this fabulous conference and it changed my life forever... (more on that later)... this year 🙈, I’m proud to say, I’ll be sitting at the table again, but this time I’ll get to share pieces of my story I’ve never shared before, as an educator at one of thee most amazing conferences I’ve ever attended... last year tix sold out in a whopping 3️⃣ hours and I’m so so grateful I got to snag my seat! This year I can’t wait to take a seat in such a different capacity and I’m so so excited!! Tell me tell me, will i see you there? 🙈😍💕🤗

This is my family. 💕 And today, its pretty likely that ALL of us are either cozied up in our C@H sweatshirts, or drinking coffee from our pink C@H camper mugs, or filling our feeds with C@H memories....because IT'S LAUNCH DAY!!! 🎉🎉🎉

I can clearly remember the feeling I had at this exact time last year, eagerly waiting for registration details to go live. And when I nabbed a seat at #creativeatheartround8 , I had NO idea that in addition to my business being transformed, I'D be transformed. I'd find community, belonging, encouragement, friendship...I'd find my home.

If you are a creative or an aspiring biz owner, or even if you just have a dream on your heart that needs community to help nurture it, pleeeeease go follow @creativeatheart and check out all of the Round 9 details launching TODAY!!! It was easily one of the best investments and best experiences of 2018 and I can't wait to see what's in store for this year. LoveMo is LoveMo because of my week in North Carolina. 🙌

P.S. Round 8 recap coming Friday! Better late than never, right? 😉

So incredibly grateful for creative friends & small business owners. I should be asleep right now, but I had caffeine tonight (oops) and keep thinking about how incredible the creative community is. The people who live out community over competition. The ones who message you & encourage you & give you advice.

Exciting things are ahead and I cannot WAIT to share more soon!! 🎉

P.S. if you are a creative small business owner (or dreaming of being one!), check out @creativeatheart. Registration opens for Round 9 of their conference tomorrow (!!!) and it’s an all-around incredible community. Round 8 is the entire reason I’m currently a Virtual Assistant and I couldn’t be more grateful. 💕

I’m weirdly already looking forward to tomorrow morning’s coffee & diving into the work week - anyone else? I ended last week with a one-on-one coaching session with @meganmartincreative, and she both lit a fire within me AND gave me practical next steps about how to make my big plans for SJM come to life this year. She literally mapped out two email sequences for the #sjmartschool during our call - this girl is a genius and I’m so thankful to call her a friend and mentor!
.
I always strive to learn and grow - especially as I get further along in business. It can be so easy to stay stagnant when you get comfortable in your day to day routine, but I want to make sure I’m continuously finding the best ways to serve y’all!
.
So, last year I decided that I wanted to find a way to learn from the business owners whose strategies AND hearts I admire. Some of those incredible entrepreneurs include @emily_jeffords for growing as a successful artist, @rachel_allene for running a powerful product shop with heart, @thegrahamcochrane for all things passive income, and @meganmartincreative for help streamlining my business and email marketing strategy. I can’t say enough wonderful things about these ladies (and gent!), and am already learning so much from them.
.
What is one area in your business that you hope to improve this year? Who do you admire for doing that well in their business? See if they offer one-on-one coaching, a mastermind, an online course, or if they’re speaking at a conference this year. Even simply study their blog posts or newsletters. Find a way to learn from them, it’s much better than just guessing and going it alone! 💕

Met these amazing women over two months ago now. I took a risk and went out of my comfort zone to share a hotel room with them and I’m so glad I did! Three wedding planners, one photographer, and we covered coast to coast. Grateful to have met them at #creativeatheartround8 and glad to continue having these relationships for years to come because it’s good for my soul and for my business!

What's the big scary dream you have for 2019? Do you have a plan to get there?
...
As creatives, we often have so many dreams and ideas that it's hard to decide which one to pursue. Right?
...
Do you ever find yourself swimming in your ideas and never pulling the trigger because of fear or overwhelm? I have.
...
For 4 years, HHC was a dream. An idea. It wasn't until I had a heart change and some encouragement a year and a half ago that I decided to finally go for this idea. Now, there are many more still in queue, but this one is on fire.
...
How brave are you willing to be in 2019? What is something you've had on your heart for a while that you think you just might be ready to tackle this year? I want to cheer you on!
