012 The Power in the Pause: Taking time to Rest, Review, + Reflect

 

When was the last time you reviewed your vision for success? Every now and then, we take a pause to reflect, review and re-evaluate the seasons in our life. Just like this podcast, I had to take a break because of the significant events that happened in my life.

But now, it's back!

In this episode, I share the reason why I took a break from creating, marketing, and scaling my business, as well as the lessons I learned in the power of rest. I also share an exercise that helps me to move fast and recognize how I want to show up for myself and my business in the future.

Here are some show highlights:

[02:32]. Receiving is not an easy act for me to embrace. At my core, I am the caregiver, and feeding others is my love language. Being comfortable with allowing others to take the wheel wasn't easy, but when I leaned into it, it got easier, and it was a huge lesson in both grace and gratitude.

[03:05] A pause from creating marketing, promoting this podcast, and ultimately growing...

#130 Building or rebuilding a business in your 50s doesn't have to SUCK!

 

Do you find that it's so much easier to talk yourself into all the things that you didn't do rather than reflect on the little actions you did do?

The constant noise and conversations in your head can get the best of you.

But this past year, surviving brain cancer, hip replacement surgery, pivots in my business, and tiny failures, I made a choice to work on changing that narrative.

I started with an exercise that I give to my clients and also share on my website (for free). However, because I had already spent the month of December outlining my intentions for 2023, instead I took some time to reflect on "what was" over the past year.

Here's what I uncovered:

survived brain surgery and am currently cancer free,

 rebranded and got clear on where I want my focus to be

 committed to a 4-day work week

 automated my services, programs, and website, and am mastering the art of passive income

 learned to be okay with receiving and asking...

#129 The art of community and collaboration

Want to work and collaborate together, {{ first_name }}, in 2023?

 

I know you have big dreams for the coming year and my question to you is, have you started building that roadmap yet?


If the answer is NO, I have an inkling as to why...

...you're already overwhelmed at the thought of it
...burnout in 2022 has been so profound that you are questioning "is it worth it"
...you doubt that you have the confidence or the bandwidth to endure another year

 

I get it! I get it because those that I am already collaborating with a feel all of the above and so much more. And to be totally transparent, there were moments in 2022 when I felt it in a huge way. 

 

The truth is, {{ first_name }}, building a business and the life that you want (and deserve) in your  50's(and 60's) doesn't have to SUCK!

 

There's a way to do it without feeling so isolated and alone. The past two + years have amplified the loneliness and one of the ways...

#127 Have you ever done something radical?

Have you ever just made a decision to do something and then pulled the trigger and didn't look back?

 

I did that the other day. It felt soooooooo good!

 

It wasn't anything that I even contemplated. It was inspired by an observation in my business about a strategy that just wasn't working for me. 

 

Building an online business and media company as a solopreneur isn't easy. It's like putting together one of those 5,000-piece jigsaw puzzles. It takes forever and a day and some days you spend hours sitting there, totally focused on completing a section of the puzzle, and other days you have the patience of a gnat.

 

I am sure you have experienced this; you try to shove those two pieces together even though you know in your heart they don't belong together. 

 

Constructing your business and the life you want for yourself is no different.

 

So, the other day I decided to basically blow up and gut one of the strategies that took me the...

#125 - The 4 P's will set you free!🦋

This was the first Thanksgiving in a long time where I didn't feel stressed or frantic.

 

Do you know why? Because I had a plan. As a mom of three man-children, the expectations on this meal is very, very high.

 

My fault entirely. I have spent 25+ years setting up the promise of what ends up on our holiday table, so I take full responsibility for that. In addition, being the sole "cooker"(as my youngest used to call me when he was a toddler), there's much to prep and do.

 

But over the years, I have developed and adopted a system on how to make the process as effortless as possible. It wasn't until I wrote an e-book about my Thanksgiving meal and prep that I realized that my success in both life and business comes down to one thing.

 

Systems!

 

Without them, in my opinion, you're pretty much screwed!

 

With only 34 days left in 2022, there is no better time to get your sh*t together and feel good about entering a new year. That's plenty of time to...
