Exciting things are happening, y'all. Two weeks from today the Love & Spreadsheets blog launches!! Since my goal is to help business owners focus on the things they do best, that's what the blog will be about too! Whether you're a client or not, I want to provide as much value as I can by sharing ALL the things I've learned about organization, content management, and more with you. And two weeks from now, it'll be here! I'm cooking up lots of great content I hope you love and find super helpful and, of course, if there's anything specific you'd like to see posts about, I'm all ears!! #LASblog
Today I got the best thank you gift ever: these gorgeous @bloomandwild flowers from the lovely @lettuce_media and @ribblevalleyrox. These fab ladies and I have been working on getting their first social client together and they've only gone and clinched the deal! So proud of all the work they've already done getting this far and know they will be amazing. Good luck ladies and hope you'll still be thanking me in a few months!!
Finding balance is not always an easy thing but knowing when you need to re-balance is just as important. Being an entrepreneur you tend to get consumed by all the wonderful ideas you have.
Remembering to have a self-care. Over the summer I went through Brittney Carmichael's Shine School >> Link in Bio<< It helped me gain clarity on a stronger sense of self. Through the course, I was able to gain a stronger balance in my life personally and professionally.
Seriously, do not sweat the small stuff. Next time something comes up that you don't appreciate, just say to yourself: This, too, shall pass.
I normally ramble on and on when it comes to these tiny snippet quotes, but I think this one ties into some of my other posts, so I'll just leave it at this 😎
Psssst...in case you haven't noticed...tomorrow is Friday 👏🏼
✨ TH A N K F U L ✨every single day for this laptop lifestyle that I created! 🙏🙌💜Today I'm in Whistler Canada getting ready to help my dear friends and clients @ryanyokome @kris_britton with an incredible life-changing retreat!! 🙌 it's going to be sooo good as we kick things off tomorrow! 🎉It doesn't quite feel like the last day of summer ☀️here... last time I checked it was about 50 degrees and I can see snow on the mountains in the distance, but I'm bundled up and happy!!! 💕
Today I want to celebrate our unsung hero, Bear. Her birthday was celebrated by hurricane evacuation and a ghost tour in the French Quarter!
She's a Graphic Design Genius and Wordpress Wiz. She makes Instagram, Facebook, Wordpress & PDF magic happen, and tons of other things, far too many to list.
Happy Birthday Bear! 🎂We ❤️❤️you!! Thanks for being your awesome self!
Yesterday I had my very first virtual coffee date! I must say it was really great to meet likeminded entrepreneurial people. I had always wanted a virtual coffee date but didn't know how to go about finding one.
Once I found one person to have a virtual coffee with I found myself having one tonight and another next week!
For my virtual coffee date I was actually sat in a coffee shop! I thought it was fitting. However I have decided to give up tea and coffee as the caffeine doesn't sit right with me.
A virtual coffee is where two people meet to discuss business and life. I even had a cultural exchange with my virtual coffee date who lived in Dallas. The aim of a coffee date is to make connections and for it not to be a sales pitch to one another. I really enjoyed it and I am looking forward to my second and third.
If you are an entrepreneur who wants to connect/ have a virtual coffee meet, even a real one (if we live close enough) then drop me a comment below and let's get one arranged. 📸@emelineseet
We've been rather absent lately due to having too darn much to do! So how funny that our first blog in a while is with none other than the productivity queen herself...@louise_bettylou! Read all about her Virtual Assistant business and how she stays so chill in the face of mountains of work, at the link in our bio ☝️ #productivitymentor#interview
The ONLY thing keeping him happy and occupied this morning. (Yes, I'm monitoring him).
Moms, isn't it the worst when all you have to and need to do is 1 LITTLE THING and chaos is happening making it impossible.
Is Friday here yet?!
I woke up this morning to bring someone to the airport and got home around 5:45am with the fullest intentions to hump into work. Instead the baby got up within a minute of me settling down with my computer.
Thankfully I got my challenge email written while he was munching cheerios and my hubby was home so I crawled back into bed for an hour.
Y'all being a business owner is hard and there's often a lot of work to be done all the time, but you also need to take care of yourself and rest so you can do what you need to do. In my season of rest, I'm often reminded I'm giving myself space to do what I need to do - take care of myself, so I don't burn out.
I talk about outsourcing, but really doing that and taking care of myself has enabled me to be a better business owner and wife/mom.
Take a minutes and think about how you can set yourself up for success today.

We are a couple of days into our holiday and having a great time. I've even squeezed in a bit of reading 👌🏻 I've also had time to reflect on where I am in my business and feeling super proud. It's so easy to live the routine and not really appreciate what you have, what you are doing or what you have done. I think as a freelancer or being self employed you think of time as money. It can be hard to take a break but it's so important to allow yourself to move forward. You're no use to anyone if you are heading towards burn out. When was the last time you took some time out?
Here’s a #realstagram for you. I recently read a thread on FB that involved a woman asking for advice as to whether or not she should join a #MLM company. She stated that she LOVED the products and thought she could do well in it. I was so very disappointed by the comments and everyone telling her that MLM companies were a scam and that you had to be a super pushy person to be successful at them. Shouldn’t we be supporting each other instead of crushing ideas and dreams?
Well, I sat in bed the other night with my #norwex hair turban wrapped in my hair, my face covered with a #beautycounter brightening mask, while drinking my #herbalife shake, and it made me think. All three #women that I purchased these products from are in no way “pushy”. I never felt pressured to buy any of the products that I now use on a daily basis and I can confidently say that all three of those women are very successful with their businesses. .
A business is hard work no matter the product or service and it takes a #strong , #dedicated person to run one. I’ve never heard of a business that takes no hours to work and brings in boat loads of money. What fun is that anyway?

Delegating is a learned skill and hard to master 📝. If done correctly, your workflow and productivity will increase dramatically. 🙌 Sounds like a miracle, right? No, outsourcing tasks that take up too much of your valuable time is crucial for entrepreneurs and small business owners. Contact me 💌 ⬆️ for your complementary consultation and I will gladly 🙋 take some things off your plate, so you can focus on the core of your business!
Exercising may be something you say there's no time for but making it part of your daily routine, not only releases stress but increases your productivity and creativity 💪
Thinking with a clear mind will help you focus better 💭
