This past weekend I was blessed to be the event coordinator for Marketing Impact Academy. I’ve been an attendee for the last 4 years and this year, I got to organize it. It was a BLAST!
If you’ve ever done anything with marketing you’ve been asked “what’s your brand?” “What do you DO?” “What problems do you solve?”
These are tough questions to answer because its so hard to be “defined”… am I right?
I FINALLY feel like I know what that is for me. I’m boldly proclaiming it here because I want you to know what I “do”. (Yes I get asked this a lot)
My MISSION: To help people accomplish more and become better WITHOUT having to DO more or WORK more. Higher success, less stress. That’s what I “do” for the members of my team.
Now, I don’t actually do the work FOR anyone. What I do is far more valuable than that. I teach people how to achieve and sustain successful habits so that they can pass them on to their friends, family and team Members. We are making an impact for generations to come and for that I am PUMPED!
I’ve been a little MIA lately… and it’s because I’m coordinating MIA.
LOL… Ok… here’s the real deal.
Sometimes my social media gets a little quiet. It’s not because I’ve checked out, it’s because I’m prioritizing. It’s not that I don’t love you… I want you to have this freedom too! I want to be an example of what I FIRMLY believe in my soul… and the only way for me to live my best life and help you live your best life is to practice what I preach.
I believe we only have so much to give to each priority in our lives. I don’t believe you ALWAYS have to be hustling… I believe in being PRESENT and doing your best with the things that the Lord entrusted you with.
That being said, a few months ago I got the opportunity to be Event Coordinator for Chalene Johnson‘s next Marketing Impact Academy!
(BTW, if you’re within driving distance of Orange County CA, you really need to come if you’re considering a business or have a business)
So, I’ve been busy doing that since it’s THIS WEEK y’all. I’m so excited about this because if you didn’t know this about me, I’m a TOTAL dork when it comes to planning, scheduling, etc. So event organization is RIGHT up my ally! Super fun (Don’t laugh)
I used to not post anything that didn’t “reflect my best” – this is what I was taught, conditioned to believe and I gotta say I think it held me back in some ways.
Why? Because it gave the impression to those around me that I was always trying to be perfect, when in reality, if you spend any time with me you know that I don’t wear make up every day. Continue reading →
Because sometimes you just need to wear a crazy shirt! I’ve always been the type of person that wants to be different, not drink the same koolaide as everyone else and quite frankly, it’s both served me and hurt me at times. It’s ok though because I like to be different. I think there’s power in not doing the “norm”.
I believe we are all called to different things and I never want to look back on my life and wonder what I could have done if I had worried less about what others thought of me. Now, I am not talking about everyone when I say I don’t care, simply that I am only concerned with the ones that matter most to me. Those include Jesus, my husband, my children and a handful of those people closest to me.
What I have learned and now consider one of my strengths, is that I don’t care what the “masses” think of what I should or shouldn’t be doing. I have learned this (through many many painful trials) to not always listen to or care about the opinions of others. If I had, I would never had the experiences I have had. I would never have become a gymnast (even though I was overweight and nearly 12yrs old)… I would have never gone into the fitness industry (even though I didn’t look the part)…. I would have never auditioned for Turbo Jam (which was one of the best experiences of my life)… I would have never divorced an abusive man (because Christians don’t get divorced)… I would have never started an online business (because that will scare away all your family and friends)… and to be very honest I would have never gone to therapy (because that’s just for the weak or the crazy folk).
Those were all things I was told and truly believed myself UNTIL I decided NOT to listen to the negative thoughts in my head and what surrounded me. I encourage you today: be different, stand out, do what makes you feel awesome, even if others won’t agree with you.
