The countdown is on! 19 days! An opportunity to explore an amazing city, yes! But also the opportunity to learn, grow and hash out some goals for my business with others who GET IT. This is something I disappointingly, haven’t made time for this last year. But this next year it’s time to focus and get shit done 💯

This is where I want to be. At my desk. Rockin' out my business[es]. Today I met @emilym_thompson a serious business role model of mine. She was kind and humble and encouraging, just like I imagined she would be.
I'm leaving my job in a month with no other day job on the back burner. We're rebranding the business and I'm planning a new project.
Meeting Emily today was like a hug from the Universe, telling me that everything is going to be alright.
So you'll find me here, early in the morning and late into the night, making it do. Doing the work. Being boss.

I'm writing a book.🌿 At first I was only going to share that with a few close friends because I felt like a fraud. But then I read this quote: “May your choices reflect your hopes and not your fears.” N. Mandela - and that changes things.😬 I want to be a writer. And writers write. This is the first time I’ve taken on a big creative project without a brand name to "hide behind" so my pen is shaking a little, but I’m writing anyways. I'm also inviting you along for the journey.💃

I WISH keeping tabs on your energy levels was as easy as checking the battery left on your iPhone...⠀

The good news is that this is a skill you can develop and practice so that you can stop overcommitting and start being smart about where you spend your energy.⠀

Chances are, you know what it’s like to take on too much. ⠀

That time you said you’d go to your best friend’s bridal shower, your niece’s first birthday party, and that first date with the cute guy from the other night, all in the same day...only to feel like a train wreck when you head hit the pillow. Well, that was probably overcommitting. ⠀

And that same principle holds true in business. Maybe you’re a new entrepreneur and you’re still spending a TON of time and energy invoicing clients (an area way outside of your core genius). It may be time to template and automate that particularly draining task in a program like Harvest, Freshbooks, Bonsai, or Dubsado. ⠀

Or If you’ve been in business a bit longer, maybe you know that client calls take a lot of energy out of you so you may not want to schedule them back-to-back. ⠀
Likewise, I’ve found that I almost always need a day off after a conference or an event. (Like last year's #BeingBossNOLA vacation where this photo was taken!) I love me some business retreats, but I also know that they take a lot out of me. ⠀

By recognizing those circumstances that drain your energy, you’ll be less likely to put yourself through that same situation again and start planning around that.⠀

What do you do to fill your cup back up if you've overspent your energy? How can you plan for that better in the future? ⠀

This week we’re putting the final touches on the content of our second #beingbosszine, a fun little project we do for #beingbossnola.

Making things together is why @andkathleen and I started @beingbossclub, and bringing in other creatives like @sharonbluehill and @tashalharrison makes projects like this one extra special.

I can’t wait to share more of it! Short stories, recipes, and our favorite #frenchquarter haunts.

Shown: the zine from #BeingBossNOLA 2017. Photo by @sarahbeckerphoto. Designed by @andkathleen. Written by @andkathleen @sharonbluehill and yours truly!

Want to join us in NOLA? Remaining tickets are available for 2 more weeks or until we sell out! See @beingbossclub for more info.

Are you an introvert? If so, you’re not alone. In fact, the majority of our #BeingBossNOLA vacation attendees are usually introverts - including some of us on the Being Boss Team!
👯
That means we get it. We know that it can feel uncomfortable to put yourself out there in a new environment with lots of conversation. But that shouldn’t keep you from connecting IRL with your creative peers.
💪
We know that nothing has impacted our business like getting real face time, forging new relationships, and nurturing old ones with our friends and friends-to-be.
🌟
Here are a few of our top tips for for you introverts or Type A planners who get anxious around conferences or vacations with creatives:
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
1. Do some research: start following the speakers you’re unfamiliar with if you’re going to a conference. If you’re attending a vacation like #BeingBossNOLA or @designervaca find an attendee you’d like to get to know, send them a private message! They’d probably be so excited to hear from you.
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
2. Schedule Pre-Vacation / Conference Skype Dates: Once you’ve connected with a boss or two, invite them to schedule a chat on Skype where you can share more about yourselves and swap ideas for how to spend your free time (we definitely recommend a tarot reading). Building these relationships beforehand alleviates a lot of introvert anxiety that can stir up before an event.
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
3. Know your limits and commit to honoring them: Nobody knows you better than you. If you go into your vacation ready to make the right decisions for you, you’ll have a far better experience than if you pushed yourself past your limits.
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
You’ve got this, boss. Get excited.
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
Do the work. Vacation #likeaboss.
🍸🎉
P.S. We still have a few tickets to NOLA left and we’re closing registration soon. Get yours before it’s too late! 😍

Lovely studio crystals that I picked up last October in NOLA. (Shoutout to #beingbossnola!) Sometimes I place one by my keyboard if I need a little extra reminder as I work:

Rainbow pyrite druzy - creativity, stamina

Natural rose quartz - love, peace, tranquility

Blue calcite - creativity

Natural amethyst - strength, disfunction ✨
Peacock ore chalcopyrite - alignment

Black tourmaline - negativity shield

In the #beingbossbook we talked about how we like to reward our conquered goals and hard work with little wearable tokens. We invest/indulge in jewelry that acts as a constant reminder of just how boss we are.⠀
💪⠀
Emily here - and here you’ll see one of those momentos: an amethyst ring I purchased during our first #BeingBossNOLA vacation.⠀
💜⠀
It was a high five for launching the #beingbosspodcast and hosting our first #bossvacation. A feat that wasn’t even a twinkle in my just one year prior. And one that has gone on to change my work and life in ways I never imagined.⠀
✨⠀
Now I wear this ring whenever I need to summon those boss vibes. It works. Everytime I wear it, I’m reminded that I can do hard things. That creative work is worth the hustle. And that travel + bosses = happy.⠀
👯⠀
When’s the last time you did something special for yourself, especially in a way that will act as a constant reminder of your cool self?⠀
✨⠀
P.S. Want to come to NOLA? We still have a few spots left and we’ll be closing registration soon. Snag your spot!⠀

Last call for #BeingBossNOLA SWAG submissions!⠀

⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
It’s through our years of bags that we’ve met and made such friends as and fell in love with products of folks like @florapothecarie, @aspera_jewelry, @soymuchbrighter, @simonandruby, @chipperthings, @shopgoodokc, and many, many more.⠀
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
Emily here, and I’m excited to soon go through all your submissions to pick out the goodies very soon! Deadline for submission is Friday, July 27. Visit link in profile to find the NOLA SWAG Bag application.⠀
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
PS - If all this talk of a bag full of boss maker goodies has you feeling some FOMO, it’s not too late to join us for our #BeingBossNOLA vacation. Then you can get a bag, too!⠀

Four years ago today I was in Austin Texas at the Facebook Fit conference for business owners. My very first work trip for my business, sponsored by me!! I even budgeted my own per diem #likeaboss � I spent the layover in the airport making a webinar about all the things I learned... good times. And the best part is, that webinar is totally outdated by now, because the world of online business changes so fast!! � It's pretty cool to look back and see how much I have grown as a business owner since this first trip. I am super stoked to expand the Dual Arrow brand even more at my next work vacation - #BeingBossNOLA this September!! #investinyourself #beingboss #bosslady #hustle #businessclass

Grit & magic.
History & resilience.
Debauchery & charm.

New Orleans is one of our favorite places in the world because it’s full of complex contrasts that leave us full of creative inspiration to make the work we want to make and become the people we want to be. New Orleans isn’t tied up and packaged in a pretty bow but it has its own kind of beauty and depth that we’ve come to rely on.
💜💛💚
Which places fill you up?

P.S. We still have a few tickets left for #BeingBossNOLA and just reserved five more rooms for our discounted room block at the hotel we’re all staying at. The dates are Sept. 26-28 (and we encourage you to stay through the weekend). Come join us!

Are you a maker looking to get your goods in the hands of cool creatives?⠀🤩
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
We’ve become known in select circles (aka our vacation bosses) for putting together thoughtfully curated and really awesome SWAG bags for our #BeingBossNOLA vacation.🔥
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
All because we *love* helping artists and makers showcase their work to an audience that *gets* what it means to create from your heart. And our bosses love to Instagram their goodies! It’s a win/win for everyone involved.👌

💫 Flowers + tarot = Fleurot. 💫
-
What do you get when you combine the Victorian language of flowers with tarot?
-
If it’s in the hands of my incredibly talented friend Stephanie of @bowerbirdatelier, you get the pure magic that is Fleurot.
-
In Stephanie’s words: “Fleurot, or the Floral Tarot Deck, blends the meanings of the Victorian Language of Flowers with the meanings of the traditional Rider-Waite Tarot deck. It puts a new spin on a classic, giving you fresh ways to look at our basic human experiences. Like a traditional Tarot deck, you can use Fleurot as a way to have a conversation with your inner knowing, and to guide you through life more intuitively.”
-
I met Stephanie at #beingbossnola last year—and loved her instantly—and I’ve been watching her work on the illustrations for Fleurot every since (via Insta Stories—hers are always fun to watch!). I’m so excited that she’s opened pre-orders for this beauty, and wanted to share with you!
-
You can learn more (and see more sneak peeks!) at @fleurot.deck. Congratulations, Stephanie!
-
P.S. This week, we’ve been talking about the idea of avoiding ourselves. Tarot of any kind can be a beautiful tool for facing ourselves!

These days we like REAL LIFE.⠀
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
We’re talking hold-things-in-your-hands real.⠀
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
Like this zine we made for our annual Being Boss vacation in New Orleans. Sure we could’ve just emailed out an itinerary but this wasn’t *just* an itinerary.⠀
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
It was an experience. And it’s experiences that we *love* to create.⠀
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
P.S. Those IRL vibes are what Being Boss is all about. We still have just a few spots open for our NOLA vacation this Fall. Link in profile if you want to come along!⠀

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
