“There have been so many challenges. At different times I’ve faced different challenges but specifically, at the beginning of the Killing Kittens adventure I found there was a lot of resistance from men, who thought I was just a silly girl with a silly idea, and also, surprisingly at the time, from friends who didn’t agree with my vision for my business idea.” @emsayle333 ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀

I can’t stress enough the value of working with a travel professional.
There are a lot of differences between booking your own travel plans and handing them off to an advisor. Too many to list here.
The most important difference: connections.
Working with a travel advisor means that you as the client will have access to much better service, perks, upgrades, and amenities.
Because your travel advisor has access to those perks, upgrades, and amenities. Perks that aren’t accessible to the general public. Relationships with hotels and tour companies. Knowledge of the industry from the other side.
My clients were upgraded yesterday upon check-in, and that’s because I had the connections to make that happen for them.
Most of the time we’re preoccupied with the things to be done. Not paying attention to what is essential and very important, the inner self. .
These are my want to be:
I want to be - HAPPY
I want to be - HEALTHY
I want to be - LOVING
I want to be - SUCCESSFUL
I want to SHARE more! .

Hey y’all 👋🏽 it’s Friday! And the grind does NOT stop.
Breaks are healthy, but don’t lose sight of the goal!
What are you working on this weekend?? And what can we help you with? Drop your comments below ✨
Small steps still equal movement. This is math. It’s an exact science so, stop rushing the process and just improve upon the person you were yesterday. Keep gaining ground. You got this!

It can be very frustrating knowing that you have a ton of work to do but very minimal motivation to get you started. Even after commencing, how do you complete your tasks? Feeling stuck in a rut usually has us in the downside.
This demotivation, however, shouldn’t spell doom for the individual.
Find out what is blocking you... The heart is willing but the mind is weak. Demotivation starts with a block. Most times this block is as a result of burn out/mental fatigue.
A long cycle of continuous work and stress without well-deserved breaks can leave the mind feeling like mush. Other times it could be a fear of the task ahead.
You probably are estimating the stress and energy required to expend, so you keep avoiding it. You may need to take your time with this point as sorting emotions/feelings is quite needed.
𝗙𝗿𝗶𝗱𝗮𝘆 𝗧𝗲𝗰𝗵 𝗧𝗿𝗮𝗶𝗻𝗶𝗻𝗴:
Before you turn your weekend brain on! Take a few notes on what business systems you should have in place - likeeeee 𝗬𝗘𝗦𝗧𝗘𝗥𝗗𝗔𝗬!
As an example, you want something such as: firstname.lastname@example.org - or email@example.com. What you 𝗗𝗢𝗡'𝗧 want is something like firstname.lastname@example.org. Here's why --- ya look unprofessional! Plain & simple. If you don't have a branded business email...you don't look legit. I'll keep it at that.
Listen, if I learn that you are giving your personal cell phone number away to your clients - I'm going to seriously spank your behind....seriously. First off. 𝗕𝗢𝗨𝗡𝗗𝗔𝗥𝗜𝗘𝗦. You NEED a system in place to engage with your clients - but that gives you space & freedom when it's the weekend or 11:30pm! Know what I mean?!
If you've followed me for any stint of time, you've likely heard me harp about using a CRM for your business. A CRM is NOT a) Your email/inbox or b)a Google Sheet. - Again, I will YELL AT YOU if you are using Google Sheets to keep track of your leads!
Alright. PayPal & VENMO are for your friends. Like, when you go to the bar & someone covers your drink & you Venmo them for your portion of the tab. Soooooo - stop sending your CLIENTS (people paying you for your professional services) - a damn VENMO request. No. Look official. Look legit. Send them an invoice. A branded invoice. (Also makes your life 100x easier during tax season.)Knowledge is power, y'all. Up your business game. Look professional. And be respected in your space!

When you feel that you’ve “run out of time,” it usually isn’t because you have a handful of small, easy, unimportant tasks left over. It means you’ve forgotten or neglected something big -- and that means you probably didn’t prioritize your day adequately. Organize your tasks into different tiers of importance, and focus on your most important tasks first. If you feel that everything’s important, you need to take a step back and subdivide even further.
In the past month I’ve been connecting with other women who are following their dreams, building businesses and just generally being awesome on social media.
There are so many talented content creators out there and it was great to meet a few this week at @blogher Creators Summit.
I never really thought I’d be a portrait photographer but it’s something I’m starting to add to my portfolio. When you’re open to meeting new people and trying new things you never know what opportunities will come your way.

Create an Itinerary. It would be helpful to create an itinerary especially if you’re new to the area and you’d like to visit local places, or you’re traveling with your family, and you’d like to stay on schedule. Whatever your reason may be, it surely works! Be sure to share this to a family member or a trusted friend in case of emergency.
Stay organised while traveling.

Never a dull moment with @drhalina!! Always something to talk about (totally not work related) and can't stop laughing at our 'own' jokes.
So happen we were so matchy matchy with our outfits today. Great minds think alike. White top and blue jeans and both of us using #mysophea . @drhalina using her small pouch while @jacqjacqie using the short strap with the bag.
Slide to see more of @drhalina. Love the prints on her tudung today 😁 #navy#ginjacqiexdrhalina#friendship#ladyboss

Live each day the way YOU want to. You always have a choice...
Happy Friday! I’m about to jump head first into the beautiful craziness of fall wedding season with the next 8 Saturdays filled with amazing couples! So I wanted to take the opportunity to introduce myself in case you are just stopping by for the first time.
I’m a 30 something wife and mother of a lovely 5-year-old, Miss Harper as well as fur-mama to Roscoe and Kodi. My hubby, Josh and I have been married for 10 years, which is hard to believe. I’ve been in business for myself coming up on four years next month, but I have been photographing weddings, seniors, and families for well over 12 years! The autumn season is my busiest time of year, yet I have a few of my favorite things to keep myself moving. Coffee (extra creamer), Harper snuggles, puppy kisses, Sundays off for football and family time, and Oreos…lots of Oreos!
Enfim é sexta! Mas não sou (mais) daquelas que pensam nisso quando acorda na segunda-feira. .
É tão bom, tão gratificante trabalhar com o que gosta, viver a vida da forma que você acredita (simples, humilde mas cheia de bossa), viver cercada só de pessoas do bem (escolhidas a dedo), ter uma casa com a sua cara. Ter uma vida com a sua cara.
Nem tudo são flores. A renda é menor, o trabalho, maior. Rsrs.
Mas "eu decidi", "eu quis", "eu escolhi" usar o meu precioso tempo com a minha família e pessoas que buscam qualidade de vida. .
E você? Tem uma vida com a sua cara?

Not a single person.
Love yourself enough to set the boundary and never tolerate anything less than respect.
Sometimes this requires you to be less ‘selfless’, less ‘nice-girl’, less of a pleaser.
You’re still worth it. 💞

Where would ABG be without our smooth talking Virgo ♍️ ? Wishing our very own @janetdoubleu a Happy Birthday!🎉
You all may know her as the yoga loving, calm soul on the podcast. But to us, Janet is our rock. She is the one we can rely on to be there if we’re having a bad day, give the advice you need to hear without any judgment, and water your plants if you’re out of town lol 😂 . Give this girl a glass of wine 🍷 and watch her tear up the dance floor (she did hip hop all 4 years of college)!
Happy Birthday Janet! We are so lucky to have you as a big sister and close friend ❤️Share your love & wish our girl Janet the best on her day!
