I spent several years as a project manager; I managed projects ranging from small software updates to entire network infrastructure changes for thousands of computers, printers and devices.
Managing these projects meant managing teams of people both below me and well above my pay grade
In order to do this; I had to be on top of my game... which meant extremely organized and resourceful.
Here are a few of my tips for staying organized in business...
1. Lists: Always have your planner with you or a small notebook to write down a quick thought, idea or 'don't forget that!' moment.
2. Routine: Every morning, do what has to be done for the day right away.
✔️ Make you bed
✔️ Wash your face
✔️ Brush your teeth
✔️ Get dressed (whatever that means for you right now... Clean PJ's? 😍)
✔️ Take Medications & Vitamins
✔️ Drink a full glass of water (you'll thank me for this later when thats done)
⭕ Create a routine of your everyday personal tasks --after getting into the habit of these things, you will not need them on a list, they will be a habit
3. Label. Label. Label: Not only does having labels clear and visible for you make it easier for you to find things which keeps you more organized and productive; it also makes it easier for your family. Now you'll be able to finally send the kids or husband to your desk for 'the thing' that you need.
4. Create space for your organization: Have folders to file things away (labeled of course), make spaces for all your desk essentials that makes sense to you.
No matter what I am organizing, I do it so that anyone can find it with very little instruction.

Hey, day-dreamer… I see you! I’m totally a dreamer too. I’m also a patent lawyer and pretty much obsessed with new ideas, innovation, & entrepreneurship. If you have a new business idea or side hustle dream that you just can’t shake, or if you have too many ideas to count, then it’s time for you to grab a piece of paper and take notes, sis! I’m here to tell you that, even without knowing what your business idea is, I know that you can be successful as an entrepreneur. Here’s how!

TIME SAVER ALERT!
Does this sound familiar?
After working all day, you come home and start the ‘what’s for dinner’ game.
You check for leftovers, the freezer, and then finally the pantry for something simple.
You’re tired, hungry, and so is the family but you still have to prepare and cook.
Or wait for the delivery driver to show up with the takeout for the 4th night this week!
By the time you eat you’re exhausted and spend the rest of the evening watching a movie while scrolling online.
This was me too at one point but I decided to do something about it and I know you can too!
If you HATE playing the ‘what’s for dinner’ game as much as I do then you need to plan out your dinners ahead of time.
My biggest recommendation KEEP IT SIMPLE!
My GO TO are slow cooker meals!
I can put everything in during the morning and have a great meal ready for dinner without additional time or energy, seriously, these are my LIFE SAVERS!
I’ll even spend a Saturday and prepare and freeze 15-30 slow cooker meals! Call me CRAZY but this way I don’t even have to spend time cutting veggies or adding ingredients in the mornings, I just put the frozen meal in the slow cooker, turn it on and Viola!
If you’re looking for a slow cooker recipe to try, check out the AHA! Sisterhood site at https://www.ahasisterhood.com/quick-meal-ideas for a few ideas!

Did you know that when you’re growing rosebushes, you need to prune away some of the good roses in order to allow the bush to truly flourish?
And I think it’s also true in life.
While there are some things in life that we easily recognize as holding us back…
There are other things - 𝘨𝘰𝘰𝘥 𝘵𝘩𝘪𝘯𝘨𝘴, 𝘦𝘷𝘦𝘯 - that might keep us from reaching great.
Perhaps we say “yes” to too many opportunities.
Maybe we take on too many projects or work toward too many goals at once.
Heck, maybe you have too many gorgeous bags that you don’t use any to avoid overwhelm.
Is there an area in your life that needs pruning?
What can you cut back to allow for greatness to grow?
Leave a 🌷 below if you’re ready to make some room to flourish.
This is what turning your dreams into goals feels (and looks like) 😆

NOW. Now is all that we have and it is all that we own. This moment call "NOW" demands for us to be present, and to pay close attention to what is happening right now on our journey to "There". Take "Joy" in the process of getting to that place called There, instead of making getting there what life is all about. Without enjoying your "Now Moments," you will miss out on the moment Now brings today! So, decide to say yes to all that the moment offers and just sit back and take it all in right NOW!
When you decide to go on a trip, you set the destination and work backwards. Apply this thinking with your fitness program. Define your long term goal and break it up into smaller goals. Always keep your “destination” at the forefront of your mind and figure out the smartest way to reach your “destination”.

We've all heard to quote that "Our greatest fear is that we are powerful beyond measure".
We play small because:
👉We don't want to feel like we're showing off our abilities.
👉We don't want to impose our ideas on others.
👉We don't believe we should shine too bright.
👉We don't want to share thoughts that might be for someone else.
Truth time: When you play small, you hold yourself back and hold back what you have to offer.
Holding yourself back is not serving anyone.
Be courageous enough to take the leap and discover the power of your innate gifts. Allow yourself the freedom to truly find out what you're made of.
You are powerfully equipped with your own unique combination of qualities, experiences, traits, abilities and so much more! If you have been looking for passion and purpose, start there.
✨Shine so bright that others thrive in your light✨
Anything that’s worth having or doing really doesn’t come easy. It’s all about the experience. Have fun with it🙃

My body forced me to stop.
And it became my personal revolution.
For too long, I kept myself busy, producing, ranking, making, creating, earning, striving. Too busy to slow down and deal with some of the subtle signs that I noticed life throwing at me. The signs cautioning me that I couldn’t keep going like this.
I kept thinking I would arrive at a new level that would allow me to rest, but instead each new level of me required more of me to maintain.
When the whispers couldn’t break through to me, the breakdown became inevitable. I could no longer hide from the things I had been running from.
It was in that moment I was given the gift of self-awareness. This pause to accurately hold my strengths and weaknesses in my hands and see ALL OF ME.
No longer was I hiding from myself and trying to make up for where I lacked. All of a sudden I started seeing the ways God wired me up. No wonder all those other places felt forced, they weren’t for me! The places I leaned it, the tasks that made me light up, the choices that filled my joy to the brim were visible. I started to nourish them. And what you appreciate, appreciates.
My life started to feel like an overflow and self-awareness has become the key to unlocking every client I work with.
This month in the Peace Posse Community we are taking on the theme of Self-awareness!
These women will no longer have an unexamined mindset holding them back, because we are here for lasting change and for a life fueled by our PEACE, not by a need for “more.”
If you are in our Posse this month drop a ✌🏼 below! If you want to join us, grab your spot before we close enrollment for the month!

One of my business mentors made an announcement yesterday that she has resigned from her full time physiotherapy job. 🔥
She will now be doing her network marketing business FULL TIME........ WOW!!!!
Seeing her finally achieve something she has worked so hard to get really put this “goals” thing into perspective for me.
I need BIGGER goals!!!!!
With these bigger goals that I’ll be setting my self I also need a PLAN. A step by step on how to get there, mini milestones to keep me motivated along the way & a whole lot of motivation.
AND I couldn’t have asked for a better team to not only hold me accountable to my goals but also push me daily to achieve them ♥️
I am not a business coach!
✋🏼 I don’t write business plans.
✋🏼 I don’t help with PNLs.
✋🏼 I don’t know shit about taxes.
However, what I support my private clients with is equally as, if not MORE important than your business plan.
We start from the roots up.
We start by identifying what YOU actually want for your life.
Not what you’ve been told you should want.
Not an arbitrary monetary goal that just looks fancy on paper.
But what tf do YOU want your life to look like!?
Then we deep dive into why you haven’t already achieved that.
And this journey looks different for each of my clients!
For some it’s old stories they have held on to that are keeping them in victim mode.
For others it’s lack of a strong “why” to motivate them.
But this work is never about ME empowering THEM. My job is to support them on their journey to empowering themselves.
If I create a relationship where they needed me to keep them going I would just be creating more codependency and for many of my clients, breaking those codependent habits are where a lot of the work is done.
Too many coaches skip over this part of the work and dive right in to course creation and sales funnels.
Yes, eventually my clients DO and ARE getting to this point, but if you’re skipping the foundational work you will never be able to implement at a higher level.
One of my clients recently said about me, “She’s not just another business coach promising you $10k months. She listens to my worries and we work deep to get to the root of them. She never slaps on a bandaid and says just work harder.”
Oftentimes more hard work is not the answer. Sometimes we transform our lives by going deeper instead of bigger, getting still, and listening to what our bodies are telling us about the stories we take on as our own.
This is the work that I love.
So again, I am not a business coach, but I promise you that our work together will greatly impact your success in business.
Get on a call with me if you know you’re destined for more than what you’re currently tolerating out of life!
