Earlier this week I got to join my mister in new York for a business meeting. I didn't go to the business meeting, I got to roam.
I've been several times but always with an agenda. I just went exploring this time.
As I read #adorningthedark on the subway, and a friend recommended I be inspired, I thought much about creativity and beauty the day I walked from dumbo, to south of lower Manhattan to the flatiron building.
Maybe I will share those one day.
But today, as a #fridayintroductions , look for beauty everywhere.
I'm Kim. I'm a person who wraps creativity in all I do bc I'm made in the image of a creative God. So are you. I'm a wife and a mom. Lately I identify more as a 4w3 than a 3w4. I handletter, watercolor, teach lettering, abstract painting and alcohol inks are my new tried, love to design sourdough bread and charcuterie boards. And I'm contemplating a podcast (like for 3 years now). And I struggle w weight. And I love deep. And I keep my tribe small #gathersmalllingerdeep and I am not an entrepreneur. It's hard.
Tell me about you. Who are you and what do you ♥️♥️. Me? Good food, diet Coke, unsweet tea, the South, Glenn Miller and classic country, and rich friendships, and texting over talking on the phone.

ME, YOU + YOUR BIZ
It's come to my attention, like at least twice, that a bunch of you, Ok so like none of you, knows that I actually offer one on one action. Just like the kind Courtney from @ebbandflowmanagement is getting here in our selfie 🤣🥰🍻(and look how happy she is about it)
Yeah awks I know and it's totes my fault. You see I threw them out there randomly one day when someone from the East Coast mentioned they wanted to know more about Pinterest, I just forgot to mention that it's like a thing that I do, on the reg.
To be fair I didn't love how they looked yet, but I've smashed out quite a few now, if I had to count I'd say 10 and they've even featured inter-fucking-national client's. Well one but shit man, it's kind of a big deal... TO ME! 🇬🇧
My point is, I'm basically at pro level on zoom now. I even remember to record the calls these days and I have refined the offering and guys, it's good. Really fucking good!
We will get your Pinterest party started 🥳 with a customised convo, solely focusing on you, your biz and translating your magic over on the platform of inspiration itself @pinterest! We will work together to get you so on-fucking-purpose that you'll hit the ground running *blowing shit up in your wake.
*In the form of website traffic, email list growth, brand awareness and cash mooooooney 💵
Yeah ok mate, you're talking a big game!
I know, I know I haven't even bought you a drink yet and I'm promising you the world. So let me do just that, but the online version. Which looks a whole lot like you jumping on my website and reading what the good people of my past have to say about me, their experiences and the all round good time that I not only promise but deliver on.
What are your waiting for? It's FRIYAY! Bottoms up 🍻 over on my website, link in bio to 👊
Here’s to fully and unapologetically owning our badass selves ⚡️
I’ve been learning more and more about myself — I wanna say recently, but it’s more like a good few years 😂
A journey of reconnecting with myself, a journey of learning to love every part of me — even the messier parts. 🙌🏼
Lately, a few things have deeply landed:
💕 We are never broken! Even when life feels overwhelmingly tumultuous
💕 Our capacity to change, adapt and move through what we’re experiencing is far greater than our minds can comprehend
💕 The art of taking up space is one of many keys in the journey to self love
💕 We are our own permission slips, the people we look to are just our reminders
💕 Feeling triggered or challenged is a gateway to further connection within ourselves
💕 We get to honour ourselves as we do with the people around us
💕 And when you’re pedestaling others, that’s just a beautiful reflection of your power
May you feel your fire, love on your mess, nourish the fragile pieces of you and that even when you momentarily forget — you come back into your heart, the place of remembrance, to own your badass self. 😘
Shine on baby 🦄

What was that you said?⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
Listening to your client's customer or prospect is not only important, I now understand that it's VITAL.⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
Academically, I knew (and @damnwrite went on about it to me, ha!) ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
But...wow. @kirsty.fanton’s #BrainCamp has taught me how to gather it and use it far more effectively than I could ever imagine.⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
My Friday win? 300 replies (and climbing) for a survey that went out to my client's list last night. Not only is that *number* incredible, but the information those customers have given us is so wonderful and will help me put them front and centre in the website copy I write.

✨AWAY✨ I've been off work poorly all week and the boredom is killing me. I've spent most of my time day dreaming about my next travels. From watching snowy Christmas films to looking at hot summer holidays, I've got itchy feet to go somewhere. Which is ironic as I can't move.
Black Friday Week
We are starting Black Friday early here! From today until next weekend we will have lots of deals. So stay tuned as our deals will be changing along the way!

Ben jij je ergste vijand?
Ik hoor het zo vaak in gesprekken:
'Ik sta mezelf zo in de weg'
Op de een of andere manier zijn we keihard bezig met het saboteren van onszelf.
We hebben allemaal een reptielenbrein dat ons in de comfortzone wil houden. Je reptielenbrein heeft hele set aan skills om jou ervan te overtuigen om iets niet te doen.
Zo blijf jij klein.
Wat is een van de dingen die je reptielenbrein inzet?
Je overtuigen om gas terug te nemen.
Om niet voor de volle 100% ergens voor te gaan.
En dan is het al snel GAME OVER.
Als je ergens NIET 100% voor gaat, verwacht dan geen 100% resultaat.
Als je er 50% voor gaat, is het NIET gezegd dat je 50% van het resultaat WEL krijgt.
Ergens ben je de boel aan het saboteren. Dat kan veel effect hebben. Als jij jezelf saboteert, ben jij je ergste vijand. Jij gooit roet in het eten.
Je kan niet aan de ene kant keihard werken in de gym, veel te veel eten - en alsnog resultaat verwachten.
Je kan niet veel geld verdienen en aan de andere kant nog meer geld uitgeven - en verwachten dat je voor een mooi doel kunt sparen.
Je kunt niet 5 minuten per dag aan je mindset werken en de overige tijd spenderen aan het naar beneden praten van jezelf - en verwachten dat je krachtiger wordt.
Geef die 100%, dit is soms nog makkelijker dan 99% omdat je niet meer na hoeft te denken over een way out.

If you’ve heard me say it once, you’ve heard it 1,000 times: I absolutely love what I do! I love the variety of each day and I love capturing clients moments for them. It’s been said, though, that the highest reward for good work is the ability to do better work. Looking back, I’m truly proud to see how far I’ve come…but I still dream of someday shooting internationally. So to that end, I’m keeping my nose to the grind. Thanks so much for being a part of this incredible journey! Anything I can help you with today?
Massive thanks to @kukastudios who designed my top-notch website www.jbmomentsphotography.co.uk and my
logo that I am still in love with and stick on anything that stands still long enough!

Friday is FINALLY here 🎉 I've been waiting for thos day all week, it's the first day I don't have anything planned, no where to be, no where to go and it's bliss 😊 Today will most likely consist of blog photos, editing, maybe wrap some presents before the little one finds all my hiding spots 😂 we had a close call last night when he felt sick and went looking for the bucket instead of just telling me... 🙈 he nearly spotted all the Lego but thankfully I caught him just before he picked the bucket up which was situated on top of the clear tub all the lego is in 🙃 so yeah, that's my day and I am very much looking forward to it ✌ What's your plans this friday? 🤔 .
We often debate in the office where is everyone's magic spot. Lizzie the founder is a mountain & forest person, while Louise loves the ocean, and Joey loves the flavours of Mexico.
Where is your favourite place?
Seeing this video fills me with so much gratitude and love for what our business can do for others! 🙏 We’ve been working alongside and coaching @gabbygibbonsx for just over 2 years nows and the result of what commimtment, belief, a strong work ethic and being coachable looks like is a BRAND NEW GLC 220d MERCEDES BENZ! 🚗
SO YES!!!!....You do get the car! At the 3rd level out of 4 we are paid a cash bonus to lease one of these beautiful cars, not to mention being gifted with @tiffanyandco at Christmas!!🎄
This is the evidence that this business works if you work it! Gabby is 22 and is the youngest RVP in the Uk with @arbonne 🥰 Gabby, you and your team have shown everyone what’s possible and I’m grateful every single day that we get to work together!!! Creating a life of freedom and choice, living on purpose, helping others become their most ultimate self and making dreams become a reality! ❤️❤️❤️
I cant even believe that it’s actually FREE to register your business this month 😱 so stop watching from the sidelines and join us, you’re actually already spending money on these products every single month so switch brands, let me coach you and make your expenses become an income! 🚀
I’m here waiting to help others do what Gabby has done, so what’s stopping you? 🤷🏻♀️
I might have a bit of a thing about making people sit on top of sofas - it makes them giggle just like the glamour puss that is @rosina.green.mua here.
Rosi is an incredible hair and makeup artist (no seriously - go look at her feed!) who wanted to show more of herself in her social media - and when you have pink hair and boots to match why wouldn’t you?!
I loved meeting you Rosi and I can’t wait to show you more of your pics! #personalbrandingforwomen

Facebook Pixel now has a super easy ‘set-up’ tool that allows you to access the front end of your website and assign different events to elements on the page, like buttons and calls to action etc 😱
This makes it SO much easier to track all the events you’d like to, and it even works beautifully well with third party booking platforms which allow pixel integration [of course!] 🙌
Let’s put a big stop 🚫 to the days of only seeing ‘view content’ metrics for your pixel, and get that baby firing for you and providing meaningful data for you to work with!
I also give you a sneaky peak at my mini calculator for a quick assessment on conversion rate and funnel activity for key events.
~ 60 SECONDS ~ with the founder of kalmar_official, Karen Ruimy 💫⬇️⠀⠀
▫️ My inspiration is...⠀
The best flamenco dancers… it just creates in me a wave of emotion and creativity that is beyond explanation. And reading a spiritual master - just a few lines lift me up and open up my field of though.⠀
▫️ My greatest fear is...⠀
Being alone in a foreign place without any connection and funnily enough, it is also my favourite dream. Hard to understand but it is. Taming this fear is always bringing me to great discoveries of places and myself.⠀
▫️ The most courageous thing I’ve ever done is...⠀
Going on stage at the age of 35 in one of the most prestigious theatres in Paris. Or leaving my million dollar job for my spiritual path.⠀

(A picture from this summer because I want it back 😭) My 5 year mistake and how you can find your dream business idea 💡
Before even getting into college I already knew I wanted to have my own business. The only reason I went to college in the first place was (a) my parents really wanted me to go and (b) I didn’t know what kind of business to start. Plus, it seemed to be the safest route anyways.
Once I graduated I applied for different jobs. To be honest, I wasn’t excited about any of the job opportunities, I was still feeling quite lost but bills had to be paid.
Once I started working though I felt more lost than ever. I kept looking for other jobs and trying to come up with a business idea. However, none of them really sparked my fire.
One day, I came across a business coach online, so while watching one of her youtube videos it suddenly hit me and I realized that I struggled with not knowing what to do with my life because I never asked myself what it is I want to do with my life.
Yup, you read that right.
When it comes to figuring out what it is you want to do with your life googling and reading up on things doesn’t cut it, that’s just merely scratching on the surface of the subject.
The first step to figuring out what you want to do with your life is becoming aware of the things you don’t want. This is not only helpful when it comes to deciding between any job or the business you want to start but pretty much anything in life.
If you are currently trying to figure out what business you want to start then start by writing down all the things and tasks you don’t like about your current job, as well as previous jobs. This will help you narrow things down and sort out the options that aren’t a fit for you.
It’s all about taking the first step. Find out what you don’t want in order to discover what you want.
Here we go again! 💫 We’re heading towards the Christmas season and you’re starting to panic about what could be the a truly useful/unconventional gift for your best gal. 🙄 🥂 But what if you could give your lady friend the chance to elevate her lifestyle with access to exclusive spaces, a community of like minded influential women, and a series of unique experiences and business talks?
Well now you can! The Merit Club Gift membership gives you all of that and more! 🎄

I remember her first day at TDP, and she rocked up in this colourful, polka dot blouse. which she paired back with this *amazing* emerald green blazer.
TBH? It was love at first "so on brand", and I know it sounds superficial ... but I just *really* appreciated the detail [I'm such a branding geek. Honestly, ha!].
We've genuinely loved enjoying x2 solid-good-years with @rudienudie_designs as our BDM, and on her very last day with us recently? ... she pulled out this same polka dot blouse, and I smiled, and I definitely felt incredibly nostalgic [and I might have even cried ... what of it?] – next week? We officially farewell her at a "goodbye Jac!" lunch, as she leaps into the wonderful world of "full-time side hustle", i.e the side hustle no longer becoming the side hustle.
We [bluddy] love you Jac, and *everything* you've ever done for this here little business. x

not gonna lie. today was rough. threenager tantrums dementor the life force right out of me. and migraines can go to hell. but I got to end my birthday eating mint n chip ice cream to the sound of Heath Ledger singing “I love you, babyyy” (name that movie) — bring it, 31. 👊🏻

“I used to be one to hate being on my own, as in completely alone in the apartment or at my parents. As an introvert, I've always needed my time alone in a room to recharge - but with someone in another room, please.
The idea of being alone for a stretched period of time sent anxiety coursing through my veins and informing my brain that something bad was going to happen. I didn't feel safe, neither physically nor mentally. So if I didn't have a choice, I would find ways to always.be.doing.something.
But I am proud to say this no longer applies...” ~ gabriellesnow.com

Are you someone who wants to offer large scale florals and full blown table styling but these things are stopping you:
1) the cost of buying the flowers for building a large scale installation piece
2) the cost of hiring a good looking venue as a backdrop to take your photos
3) the cost of a photographer to capture the amazing images for you
Comment below if this is you or send me a DM. I might have something to help you.
WHY YOU ARE WHAT YOU WEAR 👗
You will never find me working in my gym clothes or pjs 🙈 why? Because clothes anchor states! When we step into an outfit we step into an identity we associate with it 🙌
Do you have a certain outfit you feel confident in? One you feel great in? Or a cosy outfit (maybe your pjs?) 🤷♀️
Chances are you do! And when you wear them you become that state - just think of super heroes - you don’t see them saving the world wearing their day clothes 🤷♀️
So this week think about what you are wearing and how it makes you feel
👉 Want to feel confident - wear something that you feel confident in 🙌
👉 Want to feel motivated or active - wear something that you feel that way in 🙌
I’d love to hear from you or see a photo in the comments 👇, what clothes do you have that have a real emotional pull for you? Is there an item of clothing you need to get rid of because how you feel or have felt in it? 🤷♀️
Or maybe it’s time to step into something new? 😉
Please share in the comments and then step into the end of this month wearing something that makes you feel 👌 🤩😏😃💃🏻 and notice just how this pans out for you...
What are you doing it all for?
👨👩👧👦To spend more time with loved ones?
🤑To make full time dollars on part time hours?
💃To make money while you sleep or travel?
🛀To dictate your hours, direction and schedule?
The number one reason people start their own business is for time and financial freedom...
Yet so many people find themselves as an employee in their own biz, often working harder and longer than when they had a corporate job!
Why? Generally it's a lack of systems/supports and being stuck in an employee mindset, rather than what I call a Wellpreneur mindset 🤯
Colleges don't teach you what you need to know to create true freedom, they teach you how to create a job for yourself.
I realised this when I hit burnout a few years ago in my own biz. I realised that there was a hard way to work and a smart way to work...and so I got to work on the changes to my systems, supports and mindset...
I invested in training
I invested in learning systems
I invested in supports & mentors
I invested in tools to leverage my time, energy and money
I invested in developing my mindset
I put my time into creating MORE time and my money into creating MORE money...that doesn't require me to be present.
So now I can sit at the park at 2:30 in the afternoon with my dog...work from any cafe in Melbourne (or the world) and be home & present with my kiddos when the time comes.
👉What are you doing it for?
If it's to step away from being an employee in your own biz and into the true freedom of a Wellpreneur then give me a HELL YESSS 🙌

WINDOW DISPLAY \\ Yesterday I completed the window display, getting it all hung up and looking pretty for @cherryvintage2019
Adding a floral Christmas vibe to this awesome independent shop, I created handmade paper roses, white foliage and gold details ready for the @chichester_bid Christmas window display competition. Fingers crossed the judges like it.
You can also vote for your favourite Christmas window in Chichester by taking a picture and tagging #chibidxmas
I’m so pleased with how the window turned and it was great to have the opportunity to collaborate with a local small business.
Remember to try and shop small this Christmas peeps and make someone do the happy dance.
For the Christian entrepreneur 👇🏽
There’s a thin line between “waiting on God to move” and “fear of taking the first step.”
How to know if it’s fear:
1. God has given you clear direction on what to do, yet you haven’t done it.
2. You are more worried about your obstacles than you are your obedience.
3. You dwell on what could go wrong more than you do what could go right.
How to overcome it:
1. Remind yourself who you serve. ALL things are possible. (Matthew 19:26)
2. Know that you were created with a purpose in mind (and no one/thing can hold you back). Jeremiah 1:5
3. Do a hair flip, put your big girl pants on and get to work. (Proverbs 14:23)
Note: It’s much easier for Him to guide your steps if you are willing to move your feet 👣

As a small business owner, you wear all the hats in your business. You are the CEO, CFO, and HR. You are the marketing and sales department, and your own accountant (yikes). ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
It's completely possible that you cannot do all the things. Let us be clear- you can do ANYTHING but you cannot do EVERYTHING. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
You're allowed to mess up, to be confused, and to ask for help. Nobody gets where they are by being a loner and never asking for help. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀

When you're lonely, it's easy to lower your standards.⠀⠀⠀⠀
When you're lonely, it's easy to forget that the Creator of the Universe thinks you are to die for - literally.⠀⠀⠀
When you're lonely, it's easy to yearn for the affection of someone/thing else.⠀⠀⠀
Lovely, you need to know that to cure a lonely heart means to be alone with Jesus. 🙌🏽💚⠀⠀⠀
Refuse to believe the lie that you are alone.⠀
YOU ARE NOT ALONE. GOD IS WITH YOU! 💚⠀⠀⠀⠀
