Hashtags #beingbossnola for Instagram

I’ve been on a couple of podcasts recently that I want to share:
🎙️
Most recently @thesuccessfulbookkeeper - talking about #bossmindset and how I make it all do, particularly building @beingbossclub as a #creativeentrepreneur.
🎙️
I also *loved* talking about my latest shift into @almanacsupplyco on a recent episode of @keepingshoppodcast. Going from service to product chatter is a trip and a delight.
🎙️
I do love that talking shop is my job. Processing it all out loud makes me better at what I do, and I love that it helps others navigate their way, too.
🎙️
Speaking of - We have @nataliefranke from @risingtidesociety talking #communityovercompetition on today’s #beingbosspodcast.
🎙️
Time to plug in your headphones??

My career path has taken several different turns over the past couple years: from 9-5 desk jobs to freelancing to a full-time but remote job to being an online business owner and now (at least for the time-being 😉) to working as a contractor.

Whenever I meet new people (or catch up with family and friends) and they ask me what I do, it always starts with a big inhale and a “Well, it’s kind of complicated...”

But no matter what my answer of the week is, it all boils down to this: I’m a total boss.

No, I’m not THE boss. I don’t have people who work for me and I don’t technically have my own business, but I show up and I do the work (for multiple people on multiple projects), I push + support the people I work with, I contribute new ideas and perspectives to move the whole business forward, I manage projects, and I take pride in the work I do.

I think in this capitalist world where we’re constantly valuing (and devaluing) each other based on the work we do, it’s important to remember that you can “be boss” without needing to be “THE boss.”

In today’s episode over on the @beingbossclub podcast (one of my contracts/projects I’m working on with the wonderful people in this photo), my fellow team members, @sharonbluehill and @coreymwinter, and I are taking over the podcasting mic from usual hosts, @andkathleen and @emilym_thompson, to share how you can be boss without being THE boss—as an employee within a company or as a freelancer/contractor.

Check it out by searching “Being Boss” wherever you listen to podcasts or at www.beingboss.club

I love working for Being Boss, and I love the team that I get to work with. We have some pretty amazing things in the works...including something pretty special that is happening tomorrow. Stay tuned!

If you are a business owner, or even just in the dreaming stage, the @beingbossclub podcast is a MUST LISTEN ❤️ I tuned in about 6 months ago and it has turned this ship around!! I took their CEO day quiz and got the result that I am a "get shit done" CEO... #notsurprised 😎 so you know what I did? Got shit done, like booking my ticket for #beingbossnola 🔮 I am so excited to be there with my business bestie @crista.tappan and take a real boss vacation with my entrepreneur idols! #firsttimeinnola #bossvacation #arewethereyet

Business besties. Two or more people who share not only jokes, stories, and sips of each other’s cocktails, but career aspirations, expert advice, and your deepest hopes and fears about things like money and value.
💰
@andkathleen and I have been spilling “industry secrets” and sharing tactics and goals with each other for years. And even though we’ve morphed into business partners, we still make time to first be business besties.
❤️
Take some time this week and schedule a call with your business bestie. If you don’t have one, reach out to someone you’d like to have a chat with. Show up, hold space, and don’t hold back.

FRIDAY DIGEST // Here’s a look at what we’ve been talking about over at Being Boss this week:⠀
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
FIRST, we interviewed @rebeccajarvis of the No Limits podcast. This boss tells us how she balances all of her projects and manages her time by saying no more often. ⠀
🎙️
Also, it’s important to note that we got to interview Rebecca from the ABC Studios while we were on our #beingbossbook tour in NYC earlier this spring! @abcradio
🏙️🍏📕
SECOND, our minisode this week is about using Instagram in your business. It seems to be everybody’s favorite platform and we say: go for it! We’re sharing our best tactics for using Instagram in your biz.
📱
FINALLY, we cannot believe that we still have a few tickets left for our #BeingBossNOLA vacation this fall. If you want to join 75 other bosses for a live podcast recording, masterclass and workshops, a ghost tour, some really good food, and a masquerade… then snag your spot now! ⠀

Bosses! Emily here, to fill you in on a simple truth: Kathleen and I love few things more than hanging out with you awesome-sauce bosses in real life.⠀
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
We laugh. We talk business. We get vulnerable with our goals, dreams, and deepest fears. We break through that shit. We talk numbers.⠀
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
We go to cool places, eat good food, and have FUN. Together.⠀
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
We love it so much that we're making more opportunities to connect with you, face-to-face.⠀
💥
FIRST, we've added a VIP option to this year's #BeingBossNOLA, giving us the opportunity to connect deeper with a few of you during our annual #bossvacation. The perks: an intimate dinner (at a too cool French Quarter locale), a mastermind session (with mimosas?? yes.), and connection before and after the vacation.⠀
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
To sign up for #BeingBossNOLA, visit link in profile > scroll to the bottom > click Vacations in the footer.⠀
💥
SECOND, we will soon be announcing an intimate mastermind offering, complete with a totally boss retreat. This will be a small group, and we're excited to dive in with you bosses in such a curated way.⠀
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
To learn more about the upcoming mastermind, make sure you're on our list. Link in profile.⠀

Emily here! Here are 5 things I can't wait to do at #BeingBossNOLA: 😍
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
• Hug some bosses, because they're the coolest people on the planet 💜
• Walk the streets and get inspo for my #ferngoals - and take enough photos to fill my insta feed for the next year
• Sip a Sazerac. A real one. 🍸
• Eat gumbo. At every meal. 🍲
• Party with my friends. Old and new. In a French Quarter courtyard. 💃💃💃💃💃
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
I could make that list go on and on. And I'll probably share more. But for now, it's time for you to buy your ticket to join us. September 26-28. Link in profile. 👆 -

👋 I’ve been getting lots of texts asking about details for our annual @beingbossclub vacation in NOLA. So here are some important things to know: we only have space for 75 attendees and still have some tickets left! 👯‍♀️👯‍♀️👯‍♀️ The dates are 📆 Sept 26-28 (you definitely want to attend the Friday night party) 🎉. And finally nothing beats NOLA magic 🔮 and hanging with other bosses who work and play hard. We’ve seen business besties, collaborations, and masterminds blossom from our attendees. 🤗 Okay, so go get your ticket and I’ll see you there for hugs and high fives IRL! #beingbossnola

This. Is. Mandatory.
✨
The peers, friends, and collaborators that I’ve met through @beingbossclub have changed my life. Grand, but true. I’ve met women all over the world who show up, work hard, and bring each other with them in their journey up. Several have become real life friends.
✨
@tashalharrison and @kinewburg of @ladybookspod are two of those bosses. We met at #beingbossmiami, and have hung out at #beingbossnola and on several occasions since, online and off. And they hosted me for the ATL portion of the #beingbossbook tour last month. They’re boss friends who are unexpected cherries on top of the fun work that @andkathleen and I get to do.
✨
Connecting with your tribe, face-to-face, is important. And keeping those connections to only those that lift you up is required. Connect. Prune. Show up. Do. The. Work.
✨✨✨

Art. Architecture. Incredible music and food. And most importantly, a few days to immerse yourself in a sea of smart, creative, welcoming people who are busting their booties doing work that they love. You will laugh and have your brain stimulated and leave with new and wonderful friends who understand the ride that running your own business can be.
You should come.

Just reserved my ticket to the @beingbossclub New Orleans #LadyBoss vacation & networking event in September! Huge thanks to my amazing hubby for gifting me this wonderful trip. Investing in myself and my progression as a business owner has been at the forefront of my brain over the last year. How can I be better? How can I learn? 🌸 What do I need to do to level up and not hold myself back from achieving my dreams? The @beingbossclub podcast (& this book!) has helped me navigate these questions, in addition to SO MANY MORE. I’m so stoked to join my new business partner @kittendh on this epic adventure. I’ve never been to New Orleans before! 💃🙌🏼😍 #beingboss #beingbossnola #ladyboss

It’s time to start counting down the days until I’m hanging in the French Quarter with a delightful brood of bosses.
💜💛💚
This year’s #BeingBossNOLA vacation is officially open for registration for limited time early bird pricing.
✨
If you wanna join @andkathleen and me for our favorite thing that we do every year - share business and life with like-minded creative entrepreneurs in one of the most magical cities in the world - then hop to it.

I had the most amazing connection call with @maggiegentry_ today (thanks #beingbossNOLA for connecting us!) and it got me thinking about how businesses aren't built in a bubble. It truly takes a village to support each other, inspire one another, and move ideas forward.⠀

I told Maggie on our call how she's been an inspiration for me in creating her virtual office hours, and how I'm aiming to do the same. So if you're ever in need of extra support or simply wanting to meet the person on the other side of the scroll, go ahead and book a time to connect (link in profile). I'd love to meet you!⠀

#iambeingboss when I’m making it do. All of it.
✨
Here’s what’s on my plate these days:
▪️Planning the next #beingbossnola #bossvacation. It’s going to be so good. (Living my travel agent dreams.)
▪️Finalizing the last episode of season 1 of #MakingABusiness for @beingbossclub If you haven’t checked out our spin-off podcast, do that. (Living my storyteller dreams.)
▪️Awaiting the release of the #beingbossbook. Only three weeks left and I can’t even. (Living my author dreams.)
▪️Finalizing scents for the rest of our seasonal candles at @almanacsupplyco. So many options! (Living my maker dreams.)
▪️Choosing the rest of our spring offering at Almanac. Mushroom growing kits, anyone? (Living my curator dreams.)
▪️Working on some website updates for an @indieshopography client. (Still living my help-others-build-online-businesses dream.)
▪️And more. Always more.
✨
Yes, my to-do list is big, but no I’m not doing too much. I’ve worked years to get to a point where I can hustle out everything I need, and still get 9 hours of sleep a night with plenty of time to have a multi-day movie marathon and snuggle fest with the fam over home-cooked meals(we’re currently undertaking #thehobbit trilogy).
✨
How do I do it? Time-blocking, focus, delegating, and project management. Having my ducks in the most aligned and productive little row.
✨
How do you build and live the life you dream about? By showing up and doing. the. work. Every damn day.

I just got back from spending a few days in Austin with @maggiegentry_ and @bewithcards. I’ve connected with these women online (and with Maggie at #beingbossnola), but the chance to be with them in person for days in a row...to laugh and go deep with them...to share frozen rose by the pool at the Hotel San Jose on a sunny, breezy, perfect afternoon...to really do life with them—it meant so much.
-
And I got to check out something deeply meaningful that Maggie and her friend Mandy have created: @mindfulmomentsatx . Barbara led a two-night workshop that opened my mind and my heart in ways I know I’ll be processing for quite some time. It was an honor to see Maggie, Mandy, and Barbara in their elements, facilitating connection and radical self-care for some incredible Austin women.
-
This online world is so powerful, and I’m grateful that I’ve gotten to meet so many people whose thoughts and ideas and perspectives and love have changed my world in ways I will forever appreciate.

I AM GRATEFUL TO THE UNIVERSE WHICH PROVIDES ME WITH AN ABUNDANCE OF EVERYTHING I NEED.
-
And one of those things is friendships!
-
In 2013 I joined an Atlanta area writers group where I met @tiffperry and @kinewburg and we became fast friends and the first #Trifecta was formed. I credit these two with sharing and feeding my ambition for self-publishing #TheLustDiaries. Not sure if I would have done it as well without you guys. 😘
-
In 2015, Kate shared an episode of @beingbossclub with me and I was HOOKED. We both became instant fangirls and in 2016 we went to #beingbossmiami. This was sort of life changing for both of us. We came back a little more focused, a little more driven, and we both started our side hustles (@thedirtyeditor and @badstarmedia)
-
In 2016 I met @latoyadixonphotography, a tiny powerhouse of a person who amazes me daily with the way she sets goals and achieves them. Toya introduced me to Gville Bloggers where we both met @blackmomcalm who is just as driven and ambitious and now I have another #trifecta.
-
In 2017 Kate and I went to #beingbossnola and met Caroline (@thebookdr) in person. We’d both been on her podcast by this point and we already felt like friends. When we left NOLA, after an eventful five days of hanging with a bunch of boss ass bitches, we had formed another #trifecta and left with more ideas for projects we could possibly work on together. By Dec we’d started @ladybookspod.
-
I’m listing all of these connections on this Monday morning because I can’t help but realize how much more fulfilling my relationships have become by doing the one thing that @emilym_thompson and @andkathleen say all the time: DO THE WORK. That podcast has become a book and I can’t wait to see where it takes them. Because I know that they not only DO THE WORK they SHOW THE WORK, sharing it with the amazing community that they have built. They’re book is available for preorder everywhere books are sold.

Have you ever thought of how much you really need?
.
.
Do you feel uncomfortable looking at your money straight in the eye?
.
.
.
You see even if you are reasonably secure you still need to take out time to find out how much you really need to bring in weekly or monthly.
.
You also need to define what your sources are. Who are your buyer and what else you can offer them.

I first met Sami of @florapothecarie in 2015, at #beingbossnola. I was drawn to her instantly, and loved sitting next to her at dinner one night, sharing our stories.
-
One of the things we talked about was natural deodorant, and I was thrilled to hear she was creating one. I'd tried a couple that hadn't worked, and eagerly agreed to be a tester for hers. I can tell you: it works, better than anything else I've ever used. (A miracle, let me tell you.) I eagerly bought more, along with some of her other products, and I've loved every single one.
-
So of course I said yes when Sami asked me to write a piece about my self-care routines for what she's calling self-love month (!). As I'm sure you can imagine, what I wrote is less of a step-by-step description and more about my philosophy behind taking care of myself.
-
If you'd like to check it out, you’ll find a link in my profile (or head to @florapothecarie). Thank you so much for having me, Sami!

We’re so thankful to have @beccapiastrelli @kimpej @beccapiastrelli @eileenmroche in our lives! .

Emily here! This weekend I had my first local pop-up shop for @almanacsupplyco (you’ll hear more about it soon!!) and was blown away to have fellow boss @kinewburg come show some support!
✨
I first met Kate two years ago at #beingbossmiami and have since hung with her at #beingbossnola and gotten to dive into her business in the #beingbossclubhouse. I immediately felt Kate was a kindred spirit and have had so many conversations with her about books and hustling hard and life in the south. I am honored that my work at Being Boss has connected me with badass folks like Kate (and @tashalharrison - hi!!!) who become real life friends. ✨
And I’m even more grateful that Kate took the time to daytrip to Chattanooga and come give me a hug and some laughs on a day I was diving into something new, in desperate need of some lovin’ from a boss who I know has my back.
✨
We know from your feedback that Being Boss is making you feel like you’re not in it alone, and I’m here to tell you that this journey continues to do the same for Kathleen and me too. Thank you for being here, bosses. Thank you for showing up, doing the work, and supporting each other alone the way. And thank you, Kate, for coming to see me and visiting my city. You so boss.
😘💪🏼👯
Soon @andkathleen and I will be guests on @kinewburg and @tashalharrison’s podcast @ladybookspod, talking about goodness knows what (vaginas will come up at least once, I’m sure of it, as will the #beingbossbook), so stay tuned!!

There isn’t just one way to get somewhere. There are so many different ways and so many choices. When we feel our back against the wall with our wellness, with our families or with our children, let’s find a way to come back to this truth. What works for one person, one family or one school doesn’t always work for another. Each and every one of us is a unique human on this Earth with different needs and different talents & gifts. So let’s be kind with ourselves and compassionate. At the end of the day, it’s about coming from a place of love and peace. And fun! Did I mention fun? If we can do that, then we are doing pretty awesome! ⠀ ⠀
thank you @trevor_mark for capturing my oh so awkward-ness in this wig at #beingbossnola when I got to pretend I was at carnival in Trinidad and used all of my dad's dance moves.

That’s me in the middle, next to one of my very first biz besties @maggiegentry_ 👯 a truly candid shot from Being Boss New Orleans this past fall.
.
Sometimes I pinch myself that I don’t clock in to a 9-5... that I get to choose my own business trips, projects, clients, and everything in between.
.
There is no limit to what I can do.
There is no limit to what I can earn.
There is no limit to the impact I can make.
.
I am limitless.
.
You are limitless.
.
Do you tell yourself that?
.
Think of how powerful you’ll feel when you understand it to be true.

Handouts with prompts and a real purpose behind them are my favorite! It goes along with the whole reflecting and planning vibe which you know I love. And that's why I make them part of my workshops and small group coaching to help guide us through all the stuff. Sometimes, it's just about taking that moment, getting our clarity down on paper and really seeing what we already knew in our gut & heart reflected back to us. It's pretty incredible when we realize that we have the answers and just need some quiet and clam to hear them. 🙏🏽

Or the night that life looked like this.
✨🖤
Except I️ think mine was actually water.
✨👵🏼✨
Hugs. Selfies. Group pics.
Followed by back-of-the-bar poboys with a few special someones.
✨✨✨
Always a night to remember, #neworleans.

The night that looked like this.
💚✨💙
@beingbossclub + @freshbooks = #nolamagic
✨✨✨
I will always get all the feels when I think about how our bosses showed up in wigs and glitter and sequins, ready to celebrate themselves. Their accomplishments. Just how boss they all really are.
And I’ll never ever turn down the opportunity to wear a glitter jumpsuit. Because that’s how you live life right.

I'm a big fan of using mantras and imagery to help me live my values. Since getting this print from @chipperthings at the #beingbossnola vacay and then talking about it with my girls, I imagine it every time I’m having a “nope” moment…Those being moments when I need to or want to set some limits around something, because I can’t do all the things (nor do I want to). So I sing song "Nooooopppeee" in a playful voice with a smirk on my face and it reminds me to set those limits. Something about this print just really reminds me to be at peace with saying no (or a no to one thing and yes to another), to not take myself too seriously and to put my health & wellness above all else. ⠀

Boss brunch with these boss babes. So happy we met at #beingbossnola and get to continue to grow our relationships and businesses.

Throwback to that time in New Orleans when I met a cool bunch of babes at @beingbossclub #bossvacay! I feel like I only scratched the surface and the time flew by, but I am super thankful for every moment I had. And loved meeting the inspiring babes who pull us into their boss vortex @emilym_thompson & @andkathleen! 😘😘👏🏽👏🏽

Thanks to @commit30 for their awesome swag at #beingbossnola. I made my first 30 day goal - launching a webinar series for @redstartcreative ! Goal is to pilot on December and the journal breaks it down into weekly & daily steps. So excited! #dothework #beboss

Here's to working with people you prank with all day and eat cheese fries with (steal cheese fries from) late night. This 📷+🎥 duo kept me going during through some loooong days and late event nights this Fall. Thanks @trevor_mark and @jameskerrfilms for good times and hard work 👊🏼. Where'd Will go? 🤷🏼‍♀️. #beingbossnola

What is one area of your life that the hustle-for-profit is hurting? Sleep? Relationships? Joy? Health? Let's have some #RealTalk in a comment below 👇💜

In this week's episode, Emily and Kathleen are getting real about their boss journeys, live from #BeingBossNOLA. Listen on iTunes! 🎙️✨🔮👯

We created a tarot spread for our #BeingBossNOLA attendees ✨ and this week on the Being Boss blog, we're sharing it with you! Here's what we found when we pulled cards for Being Boss...👇
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
Us now? > *The Devil* 👹
Not to be too mysterious, but we’ve felt a little bound and imprisoned by a project we’ve been working on. Much of it feels out of our control, but we have to keep reminding ourselves that we do have the power to “break the chains.”
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
Where are we on our journey? > *Knight of Pentacles*💰
We’re charging ahead with that knight energy toward our money + business goals!
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
What hope is lifting us up? > *Judgement*👊
Our hope is that all our hard work will show, that we continue to make the right decisions, and that it will all culminate in an exciting new phase of Being Boss.
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
What fear is holding us back? > *Nine of Swords*⚔️
As with all bosses, it’s the fear that we can’t do it. That we don’t have the endurance. All the worry. This card is all about the thoughts the plague you just when you’re about to fall asleep. It’s the tiny mistakes that play themselves over and over in your head, and these thoughts can absolutely paralyze you. But this card is a reminder that they’re just that: thoughts.
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
What mindset should we cultivate? > *King of Pentacles*👑
We’re in the Knight phase of pentacles, but this card is urging us to try the “fake it till you make it” approach, and cultivate the mindset of the king. The King of Pentacles is the King Midas of tarot. He’s always finding opportunity and succeeding at what he sets out to do. He’s the ultimate example of “Do the work, be Boss.”
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
What mindset should we release? > *Nine of Pentacles*✌️
That there are phases of hard work and then there are phases of enjoyment/rest. In truth, we need to remember to find the blend + balance. We can work AND rest every day, and we can experience enjoyment during the hustle, not just at the end.

I think I brought some of that NOLA mojo home with me. It took a solid week to recover from #beingbossnola - it was a good one! One of my favorite parts was getting a ghost tour and learning some of the badass feminist history of Jackson Square. ✌🏻

I’ve had quite the month already...lots of adventures of midterms, papers and trips around the US with family, friends, and creative bosses!! Check out my latest blog post and learn how you can join in on the #WritingChallengeNovember to write everyday for 25 days: words of gratitude for a loved one. #rewrittenfortress #creativewriting #creativechallenge #writingchallenge #octobertrips #beingbossnola #beingbossvacay #creativepreneurship #writing #creativeprocess #gratitudejournal

Yes, I’m quoting myself from the most recent episode of the podcast. If you’re considering trying NaNoWriMo this week, but you’re afraid of writing total crap- don’t be. My first NaNo was absolute shit and I loved every minute of it. Sometimes permission to write the shittiest first draft you can is the most liberating thing about doing NaNo. Let go of perfectionism. Let go of expectations. Just write like crazy for the pure wild joy of it. I triple dog dare you. This episode, recorded in the magical atmosphere of #beingbossnola, makes for some awesome Sunday listening. #linkinprofile

We recently sparkled some shit out in New Orleans during the #beingbossnola vacation. It was just amazing! Now we want to know: how are you sparking your shit out today? #thesparklehour #womenwhopodcast #sparklethatshitout #empowerment

There's no parade here like there was in NOLA one week ago. But I'm wearing some glitter anyway. On my couch. You can take the girl out of NOLA, but can't take NOLA out of the girl (or woman, rather) HAPPY WEEKEND! May you have a joyful one no matter where you are!

This time last week, Team Braid was in New Orleans getting ready for a Boss parade of epic proportions at the @beingbossclub #BeingBossNOLA vacation!

We had such an incredible time meeting and chatting with other entrepreneurial women among sequins, wigs, beads, and a full brass band!

Happy Friday! If you’re looking for some exciting weekend listening, @tashalharrison and @kinewburg were on the show this week. We recorded in person and shared one mic talking about #nanowrimo and how to make November a writing success. Listen up and plan your noveling adventure! Listen up via profile link.
