I remember leaving my 9-5 and asking myself, what if this entrepreneurial thing doesn't work? I had a Mac laptop and dreams of traveling the world... that was my “big break,” the thing that started all of this.
I was sitting in an office with artificial lights. I had to play office politics because my manager would try to fire anyone who didn't agree with him. I knew there had to be something more out there for me but I didn’t know what.
My laptop gave me passion, it made me come alive and think of ways to be creative... and yet turning that passion into a business wasn’t easy. In fact, it was all over the place. I wasn't sure if I wanted to start an online store, blog, online course, etc. The struggle was real.
Next week I’m leading 5 FREE, live masterclasses for entrepreneurs who want to start an online business. I'll be sharing a 5-Phase Online Business Formula to help get you started and launched. I promise this webinar is NOT going to suck.
One of the biggest reasons why you aren’t getting what you want is because of what you’re thinking and feeling on a regular basis.
If you’re like a lot of the entrepreneurs I meet, you don’t allow yourself to dream and believe it’s possible. Instead, you hear the voices of limitation and doubt.
That’s the place I want to support you in getting to. That place where you’ve decided and there isn’t a doubt in your mind. The place where you see yourself living that dream and can literally feel the emotions associated with it.
Somewhere along the line, we become safe when we set goals and work toward the future. We stop stretching ourselves in order to avoid failure and “be realistic.”
We like to feel comfortable. We like hanging out in the comfort zone, doing what seems normal and familiar. However, growth doesn’t occur inside the comfort zone. If you want to be more successful in business, relationships, and life, you need to step outside that comfort zone and do something that challenges you. Real growth happens when you risk failure and you have to make a greater effort to succeed.
I am going to write a play about the breakup of a relationship, and at the end of the play I am going to have a character say what people should say to each other in real life at the end of a relationship: “I’m sorry. You, being human, need a hundred different affectionate and like-minded companions. I’m only one person. I’ve tried, but I could never be a hundred people to you. You’ve tried, but you could never be a hundred people to me. Too bad. Goodbye.” #LifeofAmisfit#CorporateMisfit
M O O D After a long days work, sometimes a girl just has to relax!
As entrepreneurs we can tend overwork ourselves, lose sleep and not eat properly. To not fall into this trap I meditate, exercise and make sure I get 7-8 hours of sleep a night. I am not always successful at the sleep part but being mindful of taking care of myself and relaxing has worked wonders not only in my personal life but my professional life as well.
Question: What are some things you all do to relax?

Here's a throwback to a few weeks ago where the game day gala raised over 350K for underserved students to go to college by matching them with advisors!
Big thanks to the Texas Business & Travel Association (which these lovely people are a part of) for their generous donation.
Who started there week off to a great start?! YOU DID! Way to conquer the day. My advice to you today is to give yourself a pat on the back because you deserve it.

To often we place the thoughts, ideas, and opinions of others above our own. We listen to the "you're to young, you don't have enough experience, and the be happy where you are (the trap of complacency)."
The time to stop that is NOW, you have all the tools inside of you to be successful at whatever you put your mind to. Want to know the trick to accomplish this? TRUST YOURSELF! You must be able to trust yourself through the process knowing that your hard work, dedication and perseverance will pay off.
Your journey will not be the same as anyone else's but guess what? Your destination will be the same....Happiness & Success!
Reminder: Bad / Unfortunate things happen every day but we have to remember that we can control how we react to them. To many of us allow negative things to dwell in our minds and take away precious space in our thoughts. A setback is just another reason for a comeback! That failed business, that idea that never got off the ground, that person that belittled you...forget them all, remain positive and continue to strive for greatness on your own terms!
Being successful often means learning from those who have already achieved their goals. Having a mentor is an amazing blessing to an entrepreneur, but not everyone can find one in person.
