Yes slowing down is hard!! I used to be at my desk at 6am, now I meditate and go for a walk... I used to work 7 days, and guilt tripped when I wasn't spending enough engaged quality family time... Well apparently, I can't work 10x speed months out without my brain saying enough! Funny that!! 🤪 So you gotta slow down to speed up!! How do you slow down?
What are YOU waiting for? Do you think Monday will be a better day to start? or how about next year? So many things on that to do list right?! Now may very not be the right time before Christmas, but lets make a commitment as to WHEN. Write it down & make yourself accountable - so you can take ACTION!
What you focus on EXPANDS!! The secret to success ⭐ Become the master of your mind, if there is one thing you can do for yourself. QUIET down the voices that are feeding fear and self doubt. FOCUS on reminding yourself when you made progress, had wins & completed tasks no matter how big or small. Start telling yourself you are more than capable 🤜 Lisa xx
The million dollar question: Can you really do both? Run a business & be a present mama 😅 Does your phone pop up memories to remind you of what you've experienced & how far you've come? If not, I highly recommend it! I think it's all about integrating (not so much balance!!) - let's be honest, mixing mum & work life isn't easy, but it IS possible.

Sometimes starting, launching, and running a business can feel isolating – in fact most of the time it does! You’re pouring your time, energy, finances, and heart into this dream of yours and you’re on this chaise alone. No one gets it, no one sees all the work, no one cares the way you care. Until you meet others on this journey with you. Running along side of you and pursuing their own passions. It’s so important to invest in yourself. DM me if you’d like to join us 🥰 Lisa xx
Content is a great way for you to attract leads because it gives people an idea about who you are, what you’re about, and what you sell. So set a habit… As long as you stick with a miniature habit, you’ll develop abilities to start to feel more comfortable moving towards a bigger version. Over time your miniature habit becomes a major habit. Then what happens is you have an amazing tool you can use to build your business. Lisa xx
Are you really critical of yourself? Stop :hand:beating yourself up right this minute! We can't be everything to everyone. You are doing your absolute best, and you are getting so much right. Have faith in yourself, and breathe. Take time out to go for a nice walk:woman-walking:, and breathe in the day. Let your mind :brain: wander, and take yourself back 5 or 10 years ago. See how far you have come. Trust in your journey. I believe in you. :smiling_face_with_3_hearts: Lisa xx
So many times, I’ve felt the fear of pushing into my unknown zone, my edge. But if we don’t push a little into unfamiliar territory, how can we grow and scale our businesses? How can you push a little into your uncomfortable, to grow a little? 🌱 I'd love to hear what you have done today. Lisa xx
Steve Jobs was Mark Zuckerberg’s; Warren Buffet was Bill Gates’; Sir Freddie Laker was Richard Branson’s. What exactly am I talking about? Having a mentor, of course! Having a business, setting yourself life goals or maybe it’s just your mindset – having a mentor or coach in life is the best guidance I have ever received. Lisa xx
Morning my loves. I don't know about you guys, but I tend to put my business at the top of my priority list, then kids underneath that (have I got that the wrong way around too bahahahah), then comes marriage and household... I give myself permission to go to bed early (like kids bedtime early!) or have afternoon naps, or go for a massage in the middle of the day, or meditate at the start of my day.... etc. What do you do to fill your cup up my love? Lisa xx
Knowing your why, your where, and how to get there are amongst the most important things we can know as a business owner. My biggest advice if you have forgotten your why, is to set your criteria. Mine include things like: Must be recession proof, allow me to be at my daughters events, pick up/ drop offs and to work from anywhere... Once you have a clear criteria- you will feel way more certain when things get tough that you are on the right path. Lisa xx
When was the last time you did something purely for you, without considering other's needs? A reminder that today - find something that is purely for you! Do something that fills you up, and a bonus if its fun or makes you laugh. One of the things I love doing is going for big walks on my own, with no phone... What can you do today to fill you up? Share some of your favorite 'me time activities with me! Lisa xx
Building something new & special is going to take time. The best thing we can do in the Academy is help point our members in the right direction. If you're not moving as fast as you want to, that’s OK. As long as you move in the right direction, and it’s OK to take slow steps towards progress. If you're heading the right way, and working with the right people and tools, you’ll build up speed over time. Lisa xx
Of course I struggle. I just don't quit! Lets be honest; we all struggle sometimes. We may have moments of self doubt... Maybe we need to make some changes in life... or simply take a few hours out for some me time. BUT one thing is for sure - strong women never give up!!

A positive attitude won't change the challenges you are facing, it changes YOU. The more you tell yourself that you are capable of facing this challenge, the less daunting it will be. The more you believe that this challenge is preparing you for something amazing, the more empowered you'll feel as you face it. Your life will be full of challenges. You can't change that. But you can always choose what you think and do next. That's your power. Your attitude and your effort changes everything.
