No words will ever do justice for the racial inequalities, brutality, and injustice that black men and women face every day in our country.
In the year 2020 we should be better, we should be more evolved, we should be more unified. But clearly, we still have a ways to go.
We are all human beings, we all need food & water to survive, we all have beating hearts, each of us has a spirit & a soul, & we all share the same home - planet Earth.
ENOUGH IS ENOUGH.
All human beings on this planet deserve equal opportunity, equal rights, equal access, equal pay!
We must acknowledge the injustice, the pain, the outrage and commit to speaking up, standing up, and supporting each other regardless of color, gender, sexuality, religion, race, and financial status.
The question is SO LARGE: “How do we end police brutality and systemic racism in America? I don’t claim to have the answer, but I do believe it’s not the job of one person - it’s a job for all of us.
I pray that we do not lose the important message behind the protests due to violence.
I pray that the violence does not cloud the memory of those who lost their lives due to injustice and brutality:
And too many other innocent lives....🖤
I understand that as a White American Jewish Woman I will never understand - but I do stand with all my American brothers and sisters who are willing to take peaceful action so that our children can grow up in a World with more racial justice, economic justice, awareness, compassion, and peace.
I only come from a place of peace - harmful comments will be deleted- #zerotolerancepolicy 🚫

Make peace with what you see and feel and watch your reflection change. Sometimes all we need is a new lens to look at things differently. 🙏🏼🦋

Simple reminder to start this new week. Each step you take whether it’s forward or backward are all part of the journey. 🐾

It’s easy to question ourselves and our worth during this challenging time...
-The shift happens when you acknowledge your value.
-When we realize old ways won’t open new doors.
-When you say “no” to what doesn’t lift you.
-When you eliminate those that drain you.
-When you stop striving for perfection.
-When you stop seeking others validation.
-When you stop pushing at the point of burn out.
-When you trust your gut and listen to your “why.”
While we may have to be nimble or pivot during this time, just remember to honor yourself and your worth.
It may feel really hard to say “no” to any opportunity or revenue during this time.
But, saying “no” to what doesn’t feel right could allow you to open the door for the opportunity you have been working towards and hoping for. 🙏🏼

Your ɴᴇᴛᴡᴏʀᴋ is your ɴᴇᴛᴡᴏʀᴛʜ in good times and especially in challenging times like these.
Some even say, “The opposite of networking is NOT working.”
Throughout the pandemic I have been actively reaching out to my network to checkin, catch up, vent (vent some more) and evaluate where potential collaborations and mutual wins could be.
A simple Hello could lead to a million things and it feels good to nourish relationships that matter.
▫️Never say never
▫️Always be networking
▫️Put your ego aside
▫️Don’t burn bridges along the way =
🌷And your already setting yourself up for more quality connections and more opportunity!
What would you add to the list?☝🏼

And what do know, it’s Monday again. 🤷🏻♀️
I hope you enjoyed the weekend as best as possible.
It was beautiful in South Florida this weekend and it felt so good to soak in the sun, hang outside with Jordan and GiGi🐶, and catch up on sleep.
I am definitely feeling the momentum on my end pick back up after a few weeks of pause, evaluation, and pivot.
Do you feel like there is more movement in your business/life now vs 30 days ago?
So, I started planning this weeks schedule and when I share my “to-do” list it helps to hold me accountable for completing all things!
So, here’s on my HOT LIST this week:
-Finish edits on my @linkedinlearning course, “Work Smarter Not Harder” (20 videos 🎥)
-2 client proposals
-3 discovery calls
-Bulk content organization for May: social media posts, mini-trainings, blogs, livestream calendar.
Alrighttttt your turn, What do you have on tap this week? 👇🏼👇🏼👇🏼
***And hey, if you got nothing planned other than relaxing and rebooting- GOOD FOR YOU!

When Life Get's Blurry Adjust Your Focus.🌷
Some days you wake up feeling energized & inflow & other days it feels like everything is out of focus & a challenge.
On the days where it felt like everything was a challenge, I used to push & push my way through it, until I realized that I was 100% working against myself continuing to work that way. Can you relate?
So instead, here is how I refocus:
1. Evaluate & Eliminate:
Ask yourself if your actions are contributing to your goals. Give yourself permission to be selective in what you choose to do. Learning to say “no” even when it’s uncomfortable could be just what you need to do right now.
2. Give Yourself Space & RESET:
Sometimes when we are looking so hard for the answer the best thing we can do is actually step away. Running on fumes never = clear thinking. As we go through life, especially challenging times like this, priorities will always evolve & shift. It’s important to give yourself the opportunity to reset mentally & physically. My free guide, The Rainbow Reality Method: 7 Steps To Your Mindset Reset, could be a great resource to help you quiet your mind & gain more clarity. Link in bio🌈
3. Establish Balance With Baby Steps:
Focus your energy less on the total outcome or end game & more on the day-to-day tasks necessary to reach that outcome. Looking at the big picture can be overwhelming & the reason you throw in the towel. Think 1 task at a time & set realistic goals - every baby step gets you closer to the finish line!
4. Tap Into Your Senses:
SOUND: Ambient noise is an important variable that affects creativity. I ♥️ listening to nature sounds, mediation music, or just music instrumentals while working. Songs with words tend to be distracting & I find myself singing the words instead of thinking my own thoughts.
SMELL: Certain smells stimulate your focus & energy like Rosemary, Peppermint, 🍋, Grapefruit & Eucalyptus.
Lighting a🕯 or incense can stimulate your mind, but also creates a small ritual that signals you are about to sit down & focus.
What do you do to reset when things feel blurry?👇🏼💭

What would you be doing this week if we weren’t in the middle of a pandemic?
Wellll, this week I would be in California filming my 4th @LinkedinLearning course for Entrepreneurs, Small Business Owners, and Creators -> “How to Work Smarter Not Harder.” But, of course, that is not happening.
I really wish this course content was available right now as we are all trying to work smart from home and virtually with remote teams more than ever, with still no set “end” date in sight.
However, I am looking at this PAUSE in production as a silver lining. The silver lining is that I get to take note of the current landscape and pay more attention to what YOUR needs are now and for when we do return to our “normal” work/life routines.
So I would love to ask - what insight would help you most with your business?
Drop a # in a comment below - What interests you?
1. Tips for how to deal with email overload
2. Best tools & apps for working smarter not harder

5. How to simplify & skyrocket your social media strategy
6. How to package your skills into an online offer $$$
7. How to generate organic traffic without paid advertising

Some mornings start with yoga and meditation. Other mornings start like this...🤷🏻♀️ (swipe ->)
Every day this week I either went to sleep or woke up with a pounding headache. Soooo, this morning I just needed to roll around and moan out all my pain and frustration.
It’s not pretty, it’s not perfect, it’s not filtered, but sometimes you just have to slide out of bed on your own terms...!
HEY, at least it’s FRIDAY! TGIF

Oh my beautiful angel, how is it 2 years today without you?
I still hear your voice, hear your laugh, smell your instant black decaf coffee, and feel your support and guidance everyday.
I could really use a hug from you right now. Miss every piece of you.
💕Love you gram & miss you always💕
Thank you @peaceful_barb for this perfect reminder, especially while many of us are taking a hit professionally and financially.
Missed opportunities due to the pandemic are a “no” for now - not a “no” forever.
🙏🏼 Remember your worth.

You just never know where a conversation could lead!
At the end of last year, my desire to help Entrepreneurs & go-getters crush fear and get out of their own way motivated me to pick up the phone & call my sister-in-law, Marisa Hughes, trauma therapist and intuitive healer.
While it may seem like we come from completely different professional fields, we have noticed many similar patterns when it came to our coaching clients & conversations with friends & family over the years.
So many of us are paralyzed with fear, anxiety, comparison-nitis, shoulding on ourselves, feeling less than & confused about where to go and what to do next.
Alone we can do so little, but together we can do so much. It was obvious, the time was now to collaborate and we became driven to create a simple and effective tool that could help people work their way through these blocks and shift their mindset. And so, the "Rainbow Reality Method" a DIY - 7 Step Mindset Reset guide was created.
Today, we are all living in one of the scariest times of our lives full of unknown and uncertainty. AND YES, we have every reason to be scared, depressed, and full of anxiety - we are only human.
I don't know exactly what the future holds, but I do know that trusting your gut, listening to your intuition, reaching out to loved ones, and practicing gratitude is always the right thing to do.
While there is so much that we can't control causing us to pivot personally and professionally, we can use this time to reflect within.
Thank you @meggentaylor from the bottom of my ♥️ for sharing the #RainbowRealityMethod in @forbes today! We are so grateful for you helping us spread the love & support.

GOODBYE. ADIOS. SHALOM. HASTA LA VISTA
I loveeeee this moment. In this video 20 beautiful women sat in a sharing circle where we let down our walls, we listened to each other, we supported each other, and we literally put our negative thoughts into a trash bin and put a lid on it.🗑
It felt like a victory seeing all of those negative thoughts in the trash and sealing it shut. But, of course, thoughts (good & bad) will always come and go. Like this morning, I woke up a little foggy, so I started with writing down what I wanted to release and where I wanted to take action.
It feels really good to write thoughts/things down, especially now like:
-Writing a to do or action list, or...
-Writing in a gratitude journal, or...
-Writing a letter to your best self or a loved one, or...
-Doodling poetry or song lyrics, or...(I wish I was good)
-OR Try writing out what’s bothering you and having a little trash ceremony to create room for thoughts and things that lift you during this time.🔥 After I burn something I love to take my sage stick and clear the energy.✨
These simple actions are bringing me clarity and making me feel a bit more in control during this time of uncertainty.
BUTTTT YUP, I’m missing social interaction and the feeling of being in this sharing circle. Feel free to share...good or bad💭👇🏼
