Hey you! Life will punch you in the face so hard that you will fall and hit the ground. You can either stay on the ground to cry and complain or you can get back on your feet with your bloody mouth and ask life with a smile on your face, " That all you got?"
With all you American’s about to binge on consumerism and turkey over the next couple of days I thought it would be “that guy” and put a spanner in the works 🙂🔫
At the end of the day, buying unnecessary shit is hella fun. We are inundated with cool little gadgets, gift ideas, cute packaging, and bits and pieces that give us an oxytocin rush. Its dope!
The problem is that these products last for 5 minutes in our lives, but last for millions of years in nature as they decompose and poison our waterways, forests, and land. This is messing up the resources we need to live, and is killing countless animals and the most vulnerable people on earth. Why is nothing ever easy?! 😫
Ok, so that’s the issue, but how do we deal with this? Is there a way we can have both? The short answer is, probably not. BUT we can still be just as happy, we just have to put in a little effort (you lazy fucks). For me, it’s all about psychology and changing how we think about our relationship with shopping. There’s a few ways we can do this:
💪🏻 For the strong minded: Just start doing it! You’ve been raised into a pattern of buying stuff without any conscious thought. The “it's my friends birthday I’ll buy some disposable balloons” mentality has become so normalized that we don’t realize that there is another way of living life, one where we don’t buy toxic gifts that are destroying the rainforest. I don’t blame you for this, but now you know, and you have a self-declared strong mindframe, just stop doing it and find an alternative - you creative geezer! ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
🤔 For the people who care, but are inconsistent: Start small, try to get into a habit of asking yourself if you REALLY need to buy something. Just having that conscious thought will change your actions. Next, try to have one day a week where you decide not to buy that unnecessary product - Like “meat free mondays”, but maybe “pointless crap free Tuesdays”.
💁🏻♂️💁🏻♀️ For those who care, but don’t care enough to do something about it: I don’t believe that these people exist. If they do, they’re just fronting...(cont)
On this Thanksgiving, I'm thankful that God has allowed me to bring together the #godpreneur community worldwide.
Enter into his gates with thanksgiving, and into his courts with praise: be thankful unto him, and bless his name.

Throwing it back to just under 1 month ago when I was spending the day with @guerrillazen and @discogranny eating great diner food and touring Bell Isle. This was in the conservatory which was so freaking badass and full of amazing plants from across the globe.
Everything from cacao to cactus all under one roof on an island beside #detroit
It reminded me that I want to live in a giant greenhouse someday.
This day was also awash in the afterglow of seeing @nahkobear and #medicineforthepeople perform the night before! Wow. What a blessed life this is!
And I'm feeling extra grateful to be back to about 85% today in terms of healing the torn and flipped meniscus I had recently sustained before this picture and which I was told "needed" surgery.
I have been biohacking the shit out of it and will be releasing an entire video/podcast on how I've healed it once it's back to full mobility and strength.
All this is to say that life is a beautiful, rich adventure and it's the memories with those you care about that make it so precious!
Be well and stay beautiful! 🌲🍁✊😉 #optimalhealthtribe#gratitude#holisticbiohacking#community#blessed#travel#tbt
There's an old saying I believe holds an immense amount of truth and power. "You are the average of the 5 people you spend the most time with"
If you feel your friends are only there for you to party and hang out, but not there to entail in interesting conversations, travel, talk about your dreams, support your projects..... Re-evaluate your circle!!! Do you have a friend that inspires you? Tag them and let them know!
I just wanted to take a quick break between cooking and setting the table to wish YOU a very Happy Thanksgiving!
Even though this has been a challenging year in many ways, I truly believe it is during difficult times that we evolve and grow the most.
No matter the roadblocks and disappointments, I’ve experienced sooo many blessings this year!
I’m grateful for my amazing family in Europe and very much appreciate the technology that allows us to see one another each and every week, no matter what!
I love and adore my husband, our two kids and two fur-kids who are the center of my Universe.
I’m thankful for my fabulous friends who always keep it real, have my back and cheer me on.
Last, but not at all least, I am grateful to those entrepreneurs and organizations who I’ve had the privilege to work with this year.
You and my social media family continuously inspire me to be better, reach higher and impact more people.
If you are reading this, I thank you for being in my orbit and illuminating the world with your unique brilliance.
In TOUGH times, remind yourself, “This is not working against me. This is working for me. It’s getting me in position for the amazing future..Difficulty is an opportunity to get stronger, to develop character, and to gain a greater trust in God. Anybody can fall apart, anybody can get bitter—that’s easy—but that’s wasting your pain. That pain is not there to stop you, it’s there to DEVELOP you, to PREPARE you, and to INCREASE you.!!🤗
So schließt du Deals richtig ab! 🏆🔥
Du musst anfangs davon ausgehen, dass dein potentieller Klient kaum Zeit für dich hat.
Je wichtiger dein Angebot für deinen potentiellen Klienten wirkt, desto mehr Zeit wird er sich für dich nehmen. Erkläre also anfangs nur das wichtigste, aber erkläre es dafür ausführlicher und vereinbare daraufhin ein weiteres Meeting oder ein Telefonat, um den Rest zu besprechen. Lass ein Like da, wenn's dir gefallen hat!

Building a global brand can't be accomplished sitting in your office, you need to travel the 🌎
As powerful as social media is, there's no substitute to face to face meetings. To sharing and selling your vision over a drink or meal. To seeing how business is done differently in every country. To going out in the world, and realizing how much closer within your reach it all is... if you just take chances and explore.
Hope everyone had a wonderful Thanksgiving. And for dessert...here's a platter of Madisonian's Fall / Holiday '17 Collection that JUST LAUNCHED on our website. Link in the bio and products tagged. Enjoy!
🔥🔥ATTENTION - ACTION TAKER🔥🔥 Hey Everyone! I am super excited to welcome Ms. Dasha Enos to the business!
Dasha is a strong, single mother like myself who's ready to create the life her and her little ones deserve! Dasha is currently working two jobs and she's super pumped on finding the financial freedom she needs to create that life for her family.
She is going to crush this! She's got the motivation and the determination it takes to succeed! Can't wait to watch her grow and succeed in the business! ❤️ Dasha saw an opportunity that will allow her to let go of her two jobs, spend more time with her kids and start enjoying the one life she's got to live instead of working her butt off just to survive it!
If you're interested in learning how she's going to do this - comment below or send me a message 😊👏🏽 -
