Lately, I’ve been on a journey to be more authentically me, in my business and in my personal life.
What does that look like?
-I am no longer interested in hustling in business or hustling for my worth. I’m learning that my worth is not dependent on my achievements. As a self proclaimed over-achiever, this is a revelation for me.
You may have noticed we cut down to two launches per month instead of launching collections every single week. You also may have noticed that I have not done live videos in a long time. This is because I am tired of subscribing to this hustle culture where pushing product and selling constantly in order to make money is praised.
I am in a season of learning that rest can be even more productive than hustling. As a high achiever, this concept of “resting” is taking me a while to learn, but it’s a practice that I really believe in.
-I am not interested in “keeping up with the joneses”, as they say. While I think it’s good to get inspiration from others you admire in business and in life, I want to stay focused on doing things that feel right for me and my business. I am no longer interested in doing what others think I should be doing. That has never gotten me or my business anywhere.
I’ve also decreased my presence on my personal social media. It has been an amazing help for my mental health, and I highly recommend doing a digital detox if you’re able to.
-I am not interested in competing with anyone. If you know me, you know that "competitive" is not a word to describe me in the slightest. I believe everyone has a seat at the table, and if you are brave enough to jump into small business and take chances in life, I want you to succeed.
What I AM interested in - these are all practices that I am nowhere near perfect at, but I'll keep trying:
-Living with compassion, gratitude, grace and empathy
-Slowing down and enjoying life.
-Making meaningful connections.
-Taking time to mentally, spiritually and physically relax.
If any of this resonates with you, let me know. I'd love to know your thoughts
