Earlier this fall, we had the pleasure of setting up at a Maker Pop-Up Shop at this year's #bossvacation by @beingbossclub in #NewOrleans.

It was a pleasure to sling our wares to this fabulous group of creatives. They're our very favorite kind of people.

This photo is from warmer days while at #beingbossnola but I’m actually really excited about being home in chilly Michigan for an equally chill weekend. ✌️

#tbt to last time I was at the airport - to go to #beingbossnola in September a very inspiring trip where I learned tons from the scheduled events, and even more from my fellow bosses. It was definitely the final catalyst that got me to launch Coaching for Creative Wellness!
(P.S. I’m running an intro sale on packages through November - hop on my mailing list to get in on it! Link in profile - “blog newsletter”.)

Deciding to be my own boss has been one of the scariest, humbling and most rewarding choices I have ever made. I have never worked harder or have been happier in my life ❤️ Thankful for the struggles, the lessons learned and for taking the risk to go all in and create the life I’m living. I am doing what I love surrounded by people I love in a space we have created that’s filled with good vibes and bomb ass talent. Moral of my ramble- If you have a dream, don’t weigh out the pros and cons and don’t look back...just fucking do it- you are the only one that can get in the way of your success. I mean, if was easy everyone would do it, right?

#TuesdayTip: Two heads are better than one.⠀

What do most successful people have in common? They have a tribe. Whether it's a Mastermind group, an accountability partner, or a "board of directors", successful people benefit from the input and support of others. Just because you can go it alone, doesn't mean you should.⠀

If you haven't yet found your tribe, I encourage you to seek one out. Look for professional organizations, peer groups, even people on social media who are at similar levels in their careers and share your work ethic and dedication. They can be in different fields, focus on different areas of business, even work in an entirely different industry. You will benefit from that diversity. As long as you share the drive to improve and succeed, the relationship will be beneficial.⠀

We’re allowed to change our minds, right?
.
Kathleen here and in this week’s episode we’re sharing some surprising business lessons we’ve learned in working for ourselves.
.
But as we were jamming in front of a live audience from #BeingBossNOLA we both unexpectedly changed our minds about a few things we’ve held firm stances on in the past.
.
Oh! And it’s our 200th episode of Being Boss!

Super fun night complete with hayride & s’mores! Thanks to #beingbossnola I had a costume ready to go!

All kinds of positive things happen during a @beingbossclub vacation... belly-laughing with kind, supportive, passionate, smart and witty people is one of my favorite parts. #beingbossnola #latergram

This time last month I was all costumed up with some of my business besties and my forever @beingbossclub roomie at our yearly retreat where we get to let loose 💃🏻, meet new weirdos like ourselves🤓, and learn how to run a better, all-around, business🏆.

I love my @beingbosspodcast crew and our extra talented photographer,

Me? Nah. But you? You funny.

Do you have a business bestie?
.
Everyone always asks how we (Emily & Kathleen here) met and became business besties. It started when we stumbled across each others blogs. We would leave nice comments. Then we attended the same conference and met IRL. Then we started collaborating and working with each other in our own areas of expertise.
.
That’s the story we give – but the thing we don’t point out enough is that we were brave enough to connect.
.
Right now there is so much consumption without engagement happening. So today we invite you to leave a comment to that person you’d like to be friends with. Ask them to a Skype or IRL coffee date. Attend a conference. Strike up a real conversation. You never know where it will take you.

The end of this year is all about evolving into @redstartcreative 2.0. A wonderful suggestion came out of #beingbossnola. Mark the close of a chapter to help move you forward. I am lighting a candle, saying a prayer and reflecting on the first phase and evolution of my business. So thankful for all that I’ve learned through ups and downs, the privilege of working with such amazing clients and beyond grateful for the mentors, coaches and business besties along the way!!!

Today my friend @tanyageisler told me my hat needed it’s own Instagram account. In other news I’m home from Disney World and now I’m packing to head out to Palm Springs for @designervaca 🌴 .

What do you know well enough to teach?
.
This year at #beingbossNOLA our friends @podiadotcom hosted a masterclass all about creating online courses and membership sites that sell. And we covered all the bases: from creating curriculum to finding your dream customers to tackling fraudy feelings when it comes to competing in saturated spaces.
.
We were all taking notes and left inspired and re-energized around showing up and sharing what we know online.
.
Podia x Being Boss is hosting an online webinar on how to get started with creating your online course, membership site, or digital product downloads on October 30 at 3PM Eastern. Register to join us here: https://beingboss.club/webinar/podia .

Celebrating my #beingbossnola roomie + biz BFF @alexandria.astrology today because she just launched her first official offering!

I watched this sweet & sassy gal give the most amazing Natal Chart Readings in the courtyard of the Maison Dupuy — WHILE DRESSED AS A FOX 🦊

And this past Monday, I had the honor of sitting down with her for an hour natal chart reading. I had told her I was feeling a little nervous about this whole Saturn Return thing, and a few other parts of my chart, and she quickly eased any fears I had. I left our session inspired and full of ideas on how I can work WITH my chart instead of feeling like the planets are working against me.

Do yourself a favor and grab a session NOW — they’re filling up quick!

Reminiscing that time I went to #Nola a few years ago with the @beingbossclub ladies. It was all the things I needed. Scheming on how to get back.

Emily here! When Kathleen and I started the #beingbosspodcast we were doing it because of the micro community we had built between the two of us. A tiny community of transparency, support, and humor that had helped us each grow our own creative businesses and find more fulfillment in our lives.

What we didn't expect was the large community that grew as we shared our stories and insights on the podcast. Our vibe attracted a large tribe of bosses who don't mind being transparent, are here to support, and will laugh and have fun for days.

Here you see the group of bosses from this year's #BeingBossNOLA vacation. A mass of creatives who are so like Kathleen and me - they love their work, having adventures, and dressing up in sparkly things. This year's group reminded us - as always - why we love the work that we do. Because you bosses are the bees knees.
✨✨✨
NOLA BOSSES! Tag yourselves and your friends in the comments! Also, I miss you!

{MONDAY MOTIVATION: I AM BOSS}⠀
I ended up with this card from @tisha.tate after #beingbossnola a couple weeks ago, and now it lives behind my computer keyboard, where I can always see it. This is a huge week, with my album release show on Thursday, the official release next week, and fulfilling Kickstarter rewards, there's SO much to do. I could panic (and, let's be real, I have been doing that intermittently), but I'm choosing to reframe my mindset and remember not only that I CAN do all of this, but it's all in service of fulfilling a lifelong dream and sharing my music with people. Mindset is everything. ⠀
💪⠀
How do you manage when you're feeling overwhelmed by too much on your plate? Any favorite mindset shifts? I'd love to know! ⠀

Today's #SaturdayShoutout goes to all the amazing #womeninbiz who are doing great things, both personally and professionally. I feel very lucky to have connected with a group of female entrepreneurs who are smart, focused, and driven. They also know how to have a good time 😄 ⠀

I can’t believe it’s been two weeks since the Being Boss Vacay! It was just the kick in the pants + downtime I needed.⠀🙏🏻

It’s amazing what being around a group of smart boss ladies can do for your business and your sanity. I’m so grateful for the friendships I have made through the Being Boss Community. ⠀

Luckily I get to hang out with bosses online every month. ⠀

How do you connect with other entrepreneurs?

Shaun here🙋🏽 I'm so bad at taking pictures, so this is one of the few I have from my #beingbossnola vacation last month. These lanterns that are all over the French Quarter really spoke to me the whole trip. There is something otherworldly about a lantern, especially a gas powered one. You just don't see real flame lanterns anymore. They're weirdly magical.
I still feel like I am unpacking everything that I learned about myself and my business on this trip and it's been over a week since I got home😳I'm finding it hard to focus and I feel surprisingly unsettled.
Maybe I'm just being dramatic🤷🏽But I'd love the here I'm not alone. Anyone else ever have a trip that threw them into an existential crisis? What are some of your favorite ways to refocus when you're feeling...off?

Feeling totally boss after an incredible kick-off meeting with a client today. One week back from NOLA and I’m still riding the high. It’s hard to explain the magic that comes from a week with people who just get you. @beingbossclub #beingbossnola 👩🏼‍🎤💫💓

One of our favorite things to do: tell bosses to come in costume and watch them do. the. work.

Fun times from our Woodland Wonderland Masquerade at #BeingBossNOLA!

PS - @jem.gonzalez and @florapothecarie got Emily’s vote for best boomerang of the night. (First slide.) 😂😘

This time last week I was getting dressed up as a crow for a Woodland Wonderland masquerade with a bunch of bosses in the #FrenchQuarter. Whoa - I love that that sentence even exists.

And it’s taken a week for me to catch up on sleep and my inbox. A week to find my new center, because there’s never “going back to normal” after #BeingBossNOLA. Instead, it’s finding and facing the new normal.

This year’s event was my favorite yet. The bosses, the chats, the costumes - holding this space and making this do is my very favorite thing that I get to do. #ilovemyjob
