Gut instinct is incredibly powerful, but like any skill, you have to develop it over time. Put the time and energy into cultivating your gut instincts by deeply engaging with something in a sustained fashion over time. Come up with hypotheses and test them to see if you're right. Do that enough times and you'll be able to trust your gut. Get to the point where you can trust you're gut and you'll be able to move much faster than others who have to process everything on a conscious level.
The only way people can look down on you is if you are below them. Rise above them, to the top, so that they look up to you instead
Here is some motivation. NEVER GIVE UP!
"One of our non-smoking staff put a message in the company suggestion box earlier in the year saying that smoking breaks were causing problems." said Hirotaka Matsushima, a spokesman for Piala Inc.
So far the initiative seems to be making a difference as 10% of smoking employees have given up cigarettes.
Japan has recently been ramping up anti-smoking measures and Tokyo governor Yuriko Koike even plans to ban smoking in public places ahead of the 2020 Summer Olympics.
Keep them. 💯
There’s no learning without trying lots of ideas and failing lots of times.
I’m just going to leave these here for you to look at. Because they’re pretty.
Also, we have a new post up on the blog today that talks about EXACTLY what branding is, and what it can do for your business. We wanted to really help clarify it because the word ‘branding’ can actually be a little vague and confusing.
So if you aren’t quite sure what it is, or why it’s important for your biz, head to the link in our bio 👆🏼 and keep an eye out for even more helpful posts like this coming from us in the near future! 💋
We all LOVE a good success story. We get inspired and start thinking “Man maybe that can be me one day” and then self-doubt comes in and you convince yourself that you can’t achieve your dream and that success story will never be you. You give up hope, go back to your 9 to 5 like that moment never happened. Sound familiar?

Currently listening a book “Money: A Love Story” by @katenorthrup . I like the fact that she is the one narrating her book. ☺️ What are you all reading nowadays? Do you like @audible_com as much as I do? #sparklyfinance
"Because at one point everything was exactly what you wanted" Don't you just love this line? It's so important to make a decision you can be happy with, and then not look back and wonder what you might have done differently if it doesn't turn out the way you want. The decision is made and it was the best decision you could make with the information you had at the time. Thinking back and wondering what could have gone differently only leads to bitterness and regret! Instead of being re-GRET-ful just be GRATE-ful <3 Double tap if you agree!
Are we being honest today? Ok, because I am. I'm still a little shook. I can tell I just need to rest. And that's important to share because the reality is no one is on 24/7 and able to perform or show up all of the time. Self-care is real. Mental health is real. I woke up at 4:30 and played Chef because cooking makes me happy. I've been watching music videos to sing and Wendy Williams to laugh. No client work. Only cleared out emails. And no apologies. When you know it's time to decompress, listen to your body.
When you think about "play at work" what do you think of? Is it having fun in the workplace with work colleagues? An out of hours team building activity organised by your workplace? Is it fun changes in your workplace that make your work environment more fun like beanbags instead of chairs, board games in the lunch room?
What does play at work look like for you?
Remember at the end of last month when I encouraged you to 'Embrace your inner Beyonće' and run the next month [aka this month - December]? Hopefully you took my advice and have been able to somewhat cruise through the first part of the month. I want to take it up a notch for this final push. In the next day or so, even over the weekend, I want you to do some time blocking for me. I've popped a link in my bio to a Facebook Live I did back in August where I talked about time blocking. It's not too long so if you get a chance have a look or a listen. If you're thinking "Have you gone mad Emily??? I don't have time for that!!!!" I've also popped a link to my personal Daily Priority Planner in there.

Great talk from the hilarious @jennawolfe, TV Host of @firstthingsfirstonfs1 and former Today Show Lifestyle & Fitness correspondent, on some of her best advice from her book Thinner in 30, Small Changes That Add Up to Big Weight Loss in Just 30 Days (@thinner30). Top takeaways: the pounds will start to creep up on you if you don’t exercise regularly, so a good way to keep weight off is to choose an activity you enjoy, so you learn to love working out. This will help you stay motivated and stick with it, have you feeling strong and keep the pounds off. Great tips we can all use just in time for the holidays!
Sometimes it takes more discipline to not workout then to workout😮
I literally get up everyday, eat breakfast, play with my kids, then go into the garage and workout. 7 days a week. Today my body was telling me to take a day off. It has been hard! So I've ate Chipotle, done some things around the house, and I'm about to foam roll it out. I can hear the weights in the garage,"Come on ya weiner, foam rollers are for sissies." For real how many rest days do you have? Make me feel better about this🤣
Namesto kritiziranja tokrat raje pot hvaležnosti in pohvale 😉
Nothing ordained by God can be changed by man. Ya enemies will be exposed when you step into your glow! This is the season when the haters don't matter and the two faced fools will not ever understand God's hand on your life. The doors 🚪will open, the atmosphere will shift, the tongues will speak, the glory will be magnified, the calling will be intensified, the sweet aroma of the pressing will keep you focused as you become uncomfortable with the twist and shifts and deception and manifestations! What God has set to be will be! 😇Ayyyeeee....i need you to stand on your feet while you struggle with the rapture of addiction, I need you to lift you arms and reach towards the sky as you ask for forgiveness confess your sins and become new. I challenge you to love your enemy because discernment protects. Make the devil flee and bind forked tongues with your anointing!! Ayyyeeee Jesus...the waymaker protector healer friend doctor the beginning & the end...we surrender so we can become greater...hallelujah!!! In Jesus name we pray. Amen 😇
The Right Start Workshops were created to move your business in the right direction in 2018. 💥💥
One question we have received is why are we starting on January 9th? 🙋🏻♂️🙋🏻♀️
My answer is why wait any longer to get moving! 🙌🏻
The 6-week workshop series is for go-getters seeking expert advice, community, & collaboration. 👍🏻
😀 Registration is OPEN, click the link in the bio.
1. Start or work the business on a part-time basis. If you are still employed by someone else, hold on to your job as long as you can and determine how much money and time each week that you can devote to your business.
2. Considering bartering with other entrepreneurs or solopreneurs. If you are a member of a social networking group, perform a search within the group for people who offer the service you need and are willing to barter in exchange for your expertise.
3. Research federal grant and vendor opportunities to see if the service or product you offer is something the federal government will buy or, if your product is service is something that can enhance your community.
The most appealing #Instagram updates are ones that offer something, but don't disclose everything. Make them want to click.

Never have I been more serious about helping other women find their voice, their passion. - and really building a life and business around that!
Independent She was born from a "calling" I had back in 2015. I was a newly single mom, and was alone with a newborn and a one year old. I also was scared to death of my newfound scary state, and filled with a lot of, "what's next?!", "what the heck do I now?!"
I knew that I had experienced unique challenges and successes that had primed me to HELP others. So I decided to launch this crazy business consulting thing (that my family still doesn't understand), while working night and day with my babies underfoot.
Fast forward two years - and wow, what a ride. On a daily basis, I am helping others who have been where I've been. Who are born entrepreneurs just like I was, and need guidance on how to make it all work.
I'm doing what I've always wanted to do, and it took a rock bottom moment to pull it out of me. .
I'm a living testament that YOU can also climb out of your situation and create a thriving business based on your dreams and passions as well.
I did it. And I can help you do the same. Let's work together, and show the world what you're made of!

I’d love to hear your morning routine!
I get a lot of questions about how I manage my business from my home office with a toddler and truthfully, we’ve got it down to a science that works for us. I begin my workday at 4am, keep a consistent workout routine, meal prep, and even schedule my work throughout the week via Google Sheets, breaking my work up over the workweek to stay focused and on-task.
With my husband gone 90% of the month and having no family nearby, it’s up to us to maintain a schedule that keeps us consistent & sane.
If you’re struggling with your routine, I would LOVE to hear what areas you feel need to be improved.
Fitting in can be hard to do, especially when you're not sure where you fit in. Your newest product or service may be like something no one has ever heard of or seen before, but that doesn't mean it won't work! Find you niche, identify your target audience, and remember to have some faith. Every great product or service was once an "out of this world" idea and there should be nothing cookie-cutter about it! #HustleHumble (📸: @thesweetandsimplekitchen)
