When I publish real estate income reports, I often get follow-up questions digging into specifics, like "Why did the utility bill spike last month?"⠀
And I'm like: "Uh, I don't know and I don't care."⠀
That's not a flippant response. I've made a conscious, deliberate decision to not give a sh** about particular details.⠀
I focus on big-picture numbers: "This month, we'll collect around $5k from the rental properties, net, after expenses," or "this month, we'll bleed $5k out-of-pocket."⠀
I know what to expect, rounded to the nearest thousand, and I plan accordingly.⠀
But I don't spend hours scrutinizing every minor detail. "Why is a single utility bill is a few hundred bucks higher than normal this month?"⠀
Maybe we had to pay a deposit on a new account set-up. Or maybe the tenant's usage just spiked that month. Or whatever. It doesn't matter. We have a strong team of property managers and contractors and accountants and bookkeepers who look after the details. I'm not going to jump in there, start micromanaging, and un-automate that system.⠀
If something drastic happens that's worth my attention, I'll handle it. But if a number is essentially a rounding error, then forget it; I have bigger fish to fry.⠀
I often write about the importance of thinking big; of staying focused on the few things that matter, the steak rather than the peas. Being an investor gives me plenty of opportunity to put this philosophy into practice. ⠀

On purpose I don't listen to this particular song always or anytime... Many times I skip it coz its so dear to my heart, I often cry and can leave it on replay for an hour nonstop... I only listen when my Spirit leads me to OR when I choose to... And when I choose I really want to remind myself of some old-times and My #Assignment here on Earth... My #Purpose ... The #BIGPicture ... #TheCall#Hillsong#Worship#LoverOfGod#GodChaser#Ministry
You can see every detail of the life that would make you #crazyhappy
The work you’re excited about.
Living in a stunning house that feels cozy, but has plenty of room for everything you want.
Having loving supportive relationships.
Traveling to beautiful places, eat amazing food & have time to enjoy it.
Making a shit ton of money.
And doing it all your way.
It's easy to put those things off.
To think as soon as I ____. Then I'll change some shit. You reach that goal & instead of making changes, something else comes up & once again you put what you really want on the back burner.
Are you really ok with continuing to be this filtered version of yourself? Living an unmemorable life where all the days blend together? Reaching goal after goal that you could care less about?
I did that same thing for years. I kept waiting to make the leap to what I really wanted. I waited for 2 reasons.
I was scared & comfortable. What if people didn't like the unfiltered me? What if I let people down because I was too busy going after what I wanted? I wasn't happy, but I knew I was ok. I could pay my bills. I had friends. I had stability. It didn't matter that living like that was draining all my energy.
I don't want that for you. You don't want that for you.
The filtered, perfect version of you that you've been sharing is impressive...Intimidating even, but she's Nothing compared to the Real You.
It's time you let the Real You out & started living on YOUR terms.
My Next Level Shift 3 month program is like nothing you've ever done because I design it around YOU.
Together we're going to take you from where you are to where you want to be (A life that excites the hell out of you & it's on your terms)
Reconnect with the real you & show you how to leverage the badass she is.
Dig into the crap that's got you stuck so you can let it go & reach your goals without the mind game BS.
Figure out exactly what you want & how to get it on your terms
Get friends & family to feel like they're part of what you want so they don't feel left behind (& you don't feel like you're letting them down)

Ya know all those posts about defining your WHY as the basis of your business? 😯 They're only partially true. An emotionally-charged, big-picture dream (Your Why) is the key to maintaining motivation to get through moments of self doubt and struggle on your journey - that part is true!! 🔵 But what about the day to day? Focusing on the big picture dream can feel overwhelming, and hard to connect to. 🗝 Simple, focused steps is the key to maintaining motivation in the day to day. Focusing on a few actionable steps, each day, creates the habit of winning. You're consistenly hitting a goal. Small action, repeated daily, creates momentum forward! ❤, your resident Life Engineer

One of the things I am most interested in is how what we eat and how we nourish our bodies affects our mental health and wellbeing.
There are a number of factors at play with our food choices; hunger, cravings, emotions, stress, nutrient deficiencies, ethics, weight management, advertising, finances, convenience, skill level...
However, there is no doubt that when you make sure to nourish your body with quality food, fresh produce, movement, rest, and self-compassion, that's when you'll be setting yourself up for the best mental wellbeing (check in with a professional if you have any concerns about your mental health) ❤️
Many of us are more big-picture thinkers and have a low tolerance for details. So we are very clear about where our visionary journey will take us, but we may neglect the practical details. But let`s face it: sometimes you don`t necessarily need to deal with all the small steps of a given process/task/challenge.
I`m not saying you don`t have to do it, just be critical about it, so use your analytical skills and ask yourself: does it really matters? Do I need to spend hours on it? Where does it leads? So take a step back and look at the big picture!

Sometimes finding your answer means forgetting logic.
I've been attempting to use products with less chemicals. Shampoo included. It took a bit for my hair to adjust, but it's getting there (slowly). I like the idea of using better stuff, but my hair gets greasy faster & I feel like there's build up. Yuck. So yesterday I was in the shower using the coconut oil #sugarscrub I made & I thought what the hell, lets try this on my scalp.
You would think adding oil & sugar would be a bad idea, but it totally removed the build up. And made my hair soft & shiny. YAY!
Go after your goals the same way. Create life on your terms. Who cares if it doesn't make sense to anyone else.
Follow your gut & you'll get where you want to go.
Ask yourself "What's my next step to get_____?"
Pay attention to the first thing that pops up.
Maybe it's starting yoga, going outside, getting a massage, watching Netflix or grabbing a cup of coffee.
Your mind will tell you that's NOT what you should do. That won't get you where you want to be. Ignore that bossy ego.
There's a reason your inner voice wants you to do that thing. Maybe you go to yoga & while you're there you have a breakthrough. You meet someone in line getting coffee that needs exactly what you do. You're binging on Netflix & get an idea for your next project that when you launch it makes you more than you made all last year.
Don't let logic & shoulds hold you back.
Let's connect with your inner knowing!
