It's THURSDAY which means... it's almost FRI-YAY! My husband is going hunting this weekend which means "me time". i.e. getting caught up on Schitt's Creek, having some good red wine, staying over at my mommy's, sleeping in until... emmm...8, and doing more of what I freaking love... working! Seriously. I'm a nerd.
I'm currently sitting outside as I type this. Soaking in the last bit of warm sun before winter comes, watching Landon, my 2 year old drive his little car around while he stops to put leaves and sand on my legs every 10 minutes, I used to get frustrated when my kids would interrupt my 'work'. Now? I just stop, smile, and take it in. I truly love every minute of this chaos, this imperfectly perfect life.
My journey to loving EVERY area of my life hasn't been easy. The past two years have been FULL of self-discovery and transformation. I look back and feel a little sad for who I was, but also blessed and happy for who it molded me to become, and for who I am today.
Which brings me to Episode 09, which is officially LIVE!
WARNING: I be PREACHIN' today! My community calls it 'ranty-panty' and girlllll... I hope you're ready for this. Break out the Kleenex and prepare yourself, it's about to get DEEP.
From 17K/months in network marketing to borrowing from my son's savings account, 50 pounds over-weight, a newborn, anxiety attacks, struggling to find my purpose, and wondering who AM I REALLY... to a thriving coaching business and finding power in my truth... all in the past 2 years.
In today's show I am sharing SIX life-changing lessons I've learned during a recent tough season in my life, and I pray these lessons can help you in some way. I'll be sharing my journey of letting go of my old identity, letting go of control, figuring out my purpose (at all costs), letting go of over-thinking and overwhelm, leaping into the unknown (and failing), being present, and finally... letting go of guilt.
i.e. a whole buncha 'letting go'. #spoileralert
I hope you enjoy!
Love and light,

Here we are on episode nine of the mompreneur mastermind show, where I'm going to share with you six lessons that I have learned over the past a year that have truly transformed who I am as a wife, as a mama that has changed the whole direction of my business and my life. And I wanted to put these together and share them with you because I think if they made that big of an impact for me in the past 18 to 12 months, I think actually I know they could be that transformational for you to really excited to share the six massive lessons that I have learned in the past year slash 18 months.
Number one, you must let go of your old life so that you can find a new one. When I read this recently, I'm like, what? Whoa, the power behind that sentence, you must let go of your old life so that you can find a new one. This is so, so, so crazy. And I was thinking, Holy smokes. I actually had to let go of this past identity that I had tied up in my old network marketing persona really was a true identity. And I had to let go of that. And it was so hard. Ladies. I don't know if you find yourself stuck to a company or stuck to an identity of who you think you should be. You're having trouble just letting go or shedding that skin. I think when we hang on so tight to who we think we should be, we're holding on to an identity that maybe is no longer valid for our own life.
Sometimes in order to let go of an old life, we have to let go of negative relationships. I know I did. I had to shed quite a few people from my circle that were bringing me down to a dark place in my heart. And in my life, I even had to let go of extra weight that like pounds as in pounds, as in the cheeseburger on my booty was carrying around. I had added all this extra weight and I think I was adding extra pounds on because it was a subconscious protection against fear of the unknown. You've got to let go of being afraid. You got to let go of the comfort zone. The what ifs, the, I don't know, hows. You just have to fully release the old life that no longer serves you so that the new one can walk in the door.
And I learned this lesson. I didn't even know I was learning this lesson. I didn't even know I was walking this path of shedding the old and stepping into the new until I found myself in the new, I went through a lot of things. I went through not knowing what was next for me. I didn't know. I didn't know what I was going to do. I just knew I was no longer fueled. In my current situation. I found myself struggling with finding the right friendships, the right support systems for this really transformational growth phase of my life. I found myself not sure what to do business wise. No, I didn't know. Should I do a blog? Should I do a YouTube channel? Should I get a job? I was in this really confused state. All I knew was I had to let go. I had to let go of that old stuff because the old stuff wasn't fueling me any longer and it wasn't lighting me up.
And it just wasn't fitting with who I had become. But that's the first lesson. And I challenge you to take a look at your life and say, what is here currently surrounding me? What friendships do I have? You know, where am I at take inventory of where you are and see what you need to let go of until we let go. There's no space for that. Awesome. To find you. Another lesson that I learned was I needed to let go of control and learn to trust. I still struggle with this. You guys want what I'm preaching up on here, talking to you on this, on this podcast. It's not because I'm coming from a place of, I have it all figured out or I'm better than you because heck no mama it's because I still struggle on the daily. I am not perfect. I am imperfect in so many ways, but all I can do is my absolute best.
I can always strive to be better than I was the day before. And I can be honest about the things that I need to improve on and I can be really open with myself about stuff and crap that I have to get rid of. And so one thing that I've learned over the past year is relinquishing control and learning to trust. This was so hard for me because I am a control freak. I am, I'm so much better, but I'm still a control freak. Okay. You have to understand. Or at least what I found is that sometimes God's purpose is not the purpose that you imagine. I mean, I went from having $17,000 a month in network marketing to I don't know what I want to do next. I should start a blog and making zero money at that blog and meeting with different companies and figuring out, okay, maybe it's just a different network marketing company, or maybe I need to add a different stream from a different company.
I was so stuck in, I have to be a network marketer because this is my identity that I was actually shutting the door to God's purpose for my life to the next step that he wanted me to take. And I had to let go of the control of the path and say, you know what? I am open. I trust you. I fully trust you. Stop trying to make a decision for me based on financial gain. Well, what, where can I make money now? Like, should I just get a job? I should just do this. I should just do that. I remember I had just started my coaching business and of course just getting started. The money's not just pouring in it, seeing an ad come through my email. And it was like, Hey, we're hiring coaches and you can come work for us and you don't have to run your own business.
You can just be an, a coach for us and we'll pay you. And I was like, that's the answer? That's it. I'm just going to go coach for them. And I interviewed, I submitted all the videos and all these things and something just shifted in my heart. I was like, this, isn't the answer for you. You're not meant to just go coach for someone else. You're meant to follow and trust me that you can do this. And I had to let go of the control. The, I don't know how the it's not working fast enough. The, I don't know where the money's coming from to do this. The I'm all alone. You know, nobody's doing this with me. I don't have a boss. I don't have somebody to push me, letting go of that control and learning to trust, actually open more doors for me than me trying to force it.
Me just being in being real and honest with my soul and getting really clear on my, my own morals. What do I want to do in a why? It's not about the money? It's not about the recognition necessarily. It's not about if I make this much money, then I'm worthy. No, it was about what can I trust God to do? What can I trust him to move and shift in my life so that I can step into his potential and his call over what I'm meant to be. And all the doors started to open. Finally, relinquished control, everything opened both financially opportunities. The right relationships were flowing into my heart and into my life. And everything shifted, trying to control. And you taking ownership of your own future is important, but I think it's also important not to get stuck in an old identity or in trying to force something to happen when maybe that's not actually the right path for you.
That's what I found for my own life and my own heart. And it was really hard gals. Like I had a whole bunch of like literal come to Jesus meetings, meetings, moments, and meetings where I'm like, help me. I don't know the next step. And guess what? When I finally said, I don't know the next step and I'm open and show me. And my heart was really open, truly open. That is when I received the phone calls, I got the client requests. I figured it out. I heard the right podcast. I saw the right video answers were flowing to me from everywhere. And all the answers were pointing me in the same direction. So that was a massive lesson that I learned. Number three, this is the third lesson that I've learned. Figure out no matter what it freaking takes, figure out what lights your soul on fire and how you can help other people by pouring into them with your gifts.
And I'm going to say something pretty tough here. Some of you may not like this, but you've got to stop focusing on the money. And I did this. I've done this for years. I did this when I was looking at different corporate jobs. Well, which one pays the most? I looked at this when I was in network marketing. Well, what rank can I get to make six figures? What rate can I get to walk the stage? What rank for this recognition? And it was all the wrong way to go about it. And yes, I was successful. If you're going to look at financial gain, however, I didn't feel fed in my soul. I talk about soul food in a minute. I didn't have any soul food. Happiness does not come from money. Period. You can have all the money in the world and feel empty inside.
And that is because you have to figure out what lights your soul on fire. And it's not going to be the money I am telling you right now. It's going to be a passion that you have. It's going to be making a change in the world of some kind. It's going to be helping people feel better. It's going to be some type of clarity that you've had that changed your life. Teach other people how to have that same clarity. Maybe it's figuring out how to balance being a mama and working, or maybe it's reducing the mama guilt. Maybe it's helping people eat better and loving food or loving themselves. What is it that you've been given? You have been given so many gifts, but what is the biggest gift that has changed who you are and that lights you up and that you feel so incredibly blessed to be passionate about?
That's it? That is it right there. I want you to figure that thing out. I don't care if you have to spend money to meet with a coach, I don't care. If you have to have a meditation weekend in Sedona, Arizona, all alone, singing kumbaya in the moon. I don't care what it is, but you owe it to yourself to figure that thing out. Because when you get in line with your soul food, you will start pouring into people. And when you start pouring into people, the abundance of the world comes back to you. Tenfold. Guess what happens? Then the money will follow. I promise you. So when you stop focusing on the money and you start focusing on the soul food, everything will fall into place and it'll fall into place faster than you probably can. Even dream of the money is already there for you, but you have to get in line with your truth.
You have to. And that's, that's hard. It's really hard sometimes to say, Oh my gosh, today, right now in this moment, I'm not sure I'm that I'm aligned with my truth. And sometimes you aren't aligned with your truth, but you can't just take the leap because you have bills to pay. And people depend on you start making little shifts in your life to move in that direction. Maybe an hour a week, you focus on your passion project and you still have the job. Maybe two hours day, you're able to carve out time to start fueling your soul and feeding people with whatever it is that you're excited about. Do that, and just make sure that it's something you believe in to the depths of your being. And I say, I always recommend that you just pray on that, make sure that you feel God's blessing and you feel him working through you in a really massive way.
You may not be sure, but you can continue to ask for guidance and to continue to ask for signs that you're doing the right thing. And they will present themselves, started getting all these incredible signs. And these, these confirmations that I was doing the right thing, even though I felt like it was wrong. I don't know how I'm scared. Everyone will make fun of me. No one, everyone will think I failed. Everybody's going to think, you know, and who cares? What the heck everybody thinks. But I was worried about that. And I was worried about not being successful or how I was going to figure crap out how the money was going to come back after taking a step away from what I had known for six years, right? Ladies. But I continued to get the confirmations all around me, do it. I'm pushing you do it.
Here's a sign. Here's, here's some financial inflow. Here's this support. Here's this support. Here's this support. This person's egging me on. This person, walked into my life and says, do this. You're amazing. And it started to come from everywhere. It really did. And so I know that you can have that same shift once you fit you're out. What lights, your dang soul on fire. And then you for Sue that with fearless, fearless passion, there will be no stopping you. The fourth thing I've learned in the past year is that overthinking. I'm talking to you, boom, overthinking and overwhelm, do nothing, but hold you back. You must leap fear loosely into the unknown and trust that the destination and the path to the destination will appear. I'm going to say this to you. And I really want you to you to hear me sing stuck in your fear, saying stuck in the what ifs.
I don't know. And should I, and could I and what, and I'm so I don't, I don't get it. I don't know how the technology freaks me out. I can't go live. Cause I stutter. Yo, staying stuck in your fear will do absolutely nothing. Nothing for your life. That's beneficial. I would rather see you leap and fail 1000 times in a row than have never left at all. I would rather see you stumble and fall in front of everybody. Let everybody see you fall. Then you not fall at all. I would rather see you take the leap and cry and feel frustrated because guess what? You're gonna know more than you did when you didn't leap, you're going to have more growth. You're going to know that you can do that thing. Even if it takes you three or four times to do it, you're going to show your children that they can leap.
Even when they're scared, you're going to step into growth. You're going to step into the potential that is overhanging over your life right now that God wants you to have. When you stop thinking about taking action and you start taking action, there's this incredible staircase in front of you at the top of the staircase is your most incredible life. It's balanced. It's full, you're happy. You're positive. Everybody's loving and surrounding you with this loving, abundant energy and the light you're fulfilled spiritually. You're fulfilled in your relationships. You have abundance financially and in your health and you love yourself. And it's at the top of the staircase and it's waiting for you right there. And right right now, maybe you're at the bottom of the staircase and you're looking up that's so far away. How do I get there? Maybe you were in the middle of the staircase.
Oh my gosh. I made it to the middle, but I don't know what to do. Now. I'm going to think about how to get up there, but I'm not sure I don't have the best walking shoes on. I'm not sure they're going to make it. This rail looks like it might give me a splinter. I'm not sure what if I fall down the stairs because they're too steep. What if I make it to the top of the stairs? And it's not what I thought? What if I'm taking the wrong step and I should be on a different staircase. Listen to me now, take the step. Just take it. Just go. Just take the step. What is the absolute worst thing that could happen? You climb the staircase and you find your glory. Probably say, Oh, I would say 99% of the time. 1% of you may get to the top of the staircase and go, Oh wow, this wasn't the right staircase for me.
Cool. You now know how to do climb a dang staircase booth thing. Like nobody's stopping you from climbing another freaking staircase. You can climb. Max, do you can climb 27 flights the stairs because you climbed one, take the step. Stop thinking, start doing. Don't listen to your head, listen to your heart. Your heart is there for a, your heart is beating with energy and love for you. And your heart wants you to grow. Your head wants you to be safe. It wants you to stay in your comfort zone and protect you while we love to be protected. And while we love to live in this safe place, we weren't created to live in this boring gray unfulfilling place of comfort. We were born to step out with the gifts that we have all been graced so incredibly with and shift the world in a way that is right for us.
And maybe your world change. Isn't stepping out on a stage and talking to 10,000 women, maybe your stage and your platform is being an insanely incredible mother. And talking about that through a blog and helping other women understand that they have the power to be a great mom. Maybe your calling is to help people learn to love their bodies or love food, or find a way that fitness can help their mental sanity. I don't know what it is for you, but you know, if you don't know, God knows drop to your knees and ask him to show you that. And then stop thinking about taking action on it. This is your greatest life right here right now. This is your moment. Take it, take this moment and go. I believe in you. I believe in you overthinking and overwhelm will do nothing, but hold you back.
And I want you to leap fearlessly. I want you to leap fearlessly into the unknown and take the step, take it. Whatever you have to do. Find a mentor, find a coach, take a course, go do fail, fall, get up, do it again, go do fail fall, and you're going to grow and you're gonna be great. And at the end of this journey, you're going to have reached the top of that staircase. And I'm going to be cheering for you so much and advocate for getting out of your own way. And I am so guilty of this, but in the last 18 months, I've done nothing but leap. I've done nothing but leap out of network marketing. And that was freaking scary as heck. I leaped out of that whole circle of people and found myself alone for a while. I started blogging. I had never blogged before I leaped into starting a YouTube channel.
I was doing it on the wrong topics, but Hey, I did it. I still was like, well, I'll try it. And guess what if I hadn't done that, I wouldn't have the platform I have today to talk about what I'm talking about today. I was like, Hey, I'm going to start an LLC. I'm going to start a business. I had never done that before. I just leaped and went live for the first time I started coaching and mentoring and I started doing it with no makeup on my face. I started doing it with my kids in the background because why not? Because I was sick of living a fake life and I was ready to be real and honest and raw and whatever that brought to me, that brought to me, I believe that the Lord has got my back and I know that he has your back. So be you step into your truth. What is your gift and stopping scared to share your gift. People are just begging for more of you. Number five is this one's big as well. They're all big. These are huge lessons I've learned to be present. Just be present mama. We can't stop time. As much as we wish we could. There are days I wish I could just figure out how to like create some freezing technology and like freeze my kids,
Like in a good way, freezing.
Cause they're so cute. And I wish I could keep this age forever because it's so precious. One of the strange realities of, of this world is that we can't control time and time is going to continue to go
And go and flow and go.
When we pour all of our energy into what's next and we pour all of our energy into what's phase two and when I do this and when I get here and when this trip happens for me or when I hit this rank or when I retire, when I get the car, when I get the house, when I moved, do you hear that you are living in the future instead of living in today? And I think what I discovered is I was missing out on so many incredible precious moments because I was so focused on success on the financial end goal. I was so focused on the recognition and I know that that was a big piece of my path because if I didn't have that, I wouldn't have that to share with you all. I wouldn't have that gritty Ross story to get better from because everything that we go through is an opportunity to learn from it.
It's a blessing in disguise. I could have continued my whole life that way and missed out on my kids and being present for my husband and doing selfless things for others and being selfish. But I realized that morally, that wasn't right for me. And I had to stop living for the future and start living for today. Being honest, that social media is an addiction and I had to detox from that myself and I pray that if you find yourself looking at your phone more than more than you are looking at your present day and spending time with your kids and your hubby, don't feel guilty about it, just change it. It is what it is. We cannot change the past. There's nothing we can do about spending too much, too much time on social media
Yesterday. It is what it is.
We have the power to take our lives back. You have the power to get off of social media. It's all lies. Anyway, nobody's life is really that perfect. And all it does is make you compare and make you addicted to this false right. Reality. What for what I mean truly what good does that do us? I challenge you to detox your life from all the fake crap. So social media, all of it, and just be present with your team. True reality. So many of us have been given these incredible gifts, our children precious angels that we have such a short amount of time with on this earth. We've been given a significant other, some of us have husband or a spouse or even friendships that we should be pouring into family parents. Now I get it. We all run businesses online. I totally get it.
Me too. I have six streams of income come mostly flowing in from online. However, I limit myself to an hour, a day of being on those social media platform. That's it. I'm going to get on there. I'm going to reply to my girls and my mom preneur group. I'm going to reply to messages. If I need to send a message or follow up with a client or whatever on social media specifically, I'll do it. I don't scroll like slow you scroll. I ask you, are you on social media for business? Or are you on social media getting lost and being addicted to it? If you're staring at the phone in your car, when you're driving you're addicted. And I was, I was, I will raise my hand and say, yay. I had a problem. And the best thing that ever happened to me was my phone broke.
While I was on vacation. About two years ago, it broke, fully broke. We were gone for like five days. I couldn't even look at it. Oh my Lord, was it liberating? I needed, but you give me your phone. Like I need a log into social media. Like it's sick. After about the first 24 to 48 hours, I felt almost this incredible weight be lifted off of me. You're getting rid of an addiction. It was so crazy. I felt free. I felt calmer. I had less, I was less anxious. I didn't feel like I was, I was constantly looking for something. I don't know if any of you feel like that if your phone is on in your hand, you're looking for something something's missing. I mean, that's, that's a problem, right? I had to be present in my moment and actually break my phone today.
He talks from the social media addiction, from the addiction to my phone and how I've recognized. It's easy to get addicted again. And it's easy to find yourself in that space. But when I do, I detox, I turn off my phone for a weekend. And when I go camping, I leave my phone back at home. Sometimes I will turn it off and hide it in the back bedroom for half the day. So I can be with my kids and I get it. We can't do that every day, ladies, but you can find the time to force yourself to detox every once in a while. I would say once a month and just be present, be present. I know there will be a day when we look back and go, Holy smokes. I wish I had been playing with my kids more. I wish I had gone out to dinner with my husband more and not been looking at my phone during dinner.
I wish I had smelled the roses and smelled the rain and watch the sunset and taken my dogs for a walk and just enjoyed the breeze and the sunshine on my back. Can you feel that? Do you feel that I want you to feel that and I don't want you to be guilty or feel bad. I want you to take a step forward, take a leap, take a leap and make a change because you have the control it's within you. It's within your heart to shift the way that you are and the way that you act on the things that you do and how present you are, because you are incredible. You are so incredible. Don't keep that to yourself. Pour that into people all around you. You can do it. I can do it. You can do it. If I can run a business online and still be present.
So can you, my last lesson that I have learned in the past 18 months is to stop feeling guilty and to start putting myself first. That's a hard one. I think this is probably one of the hardest for working moms and mompreneurs women in general. But I think specifically women with, with small children or with children, because we put everyone before ourselves, our kids, our spouses, our house has to be perfect. Our businesses have to be working. We have to look good. Then we start pouring them. Mommy, guilt into this. I ate bad today. I ate the pizza. I snapped at my kids this morning for me. It's like, I let the laundry pile up and my husband doesn't have any clean socks. I feeling guilty about that. I was feeling guilty when I would go out to dinner without my family, without my husband and my kids and enjoy and be with my girls.
And instead of enjoying myself, I was so focused on feeling guilty and looking at my watch and worrying about if I should be going home. And if my husband was putting the kids to bed the right way, I would, instead of wanting to go on vacation, I would think about all the ways I could get out of taking a vacation because I was so guilty about leaving my kids and for what Holy crap, for what my kids are like peace out, chick Hapa, BA, I'm going to nanny's house. I'm going to have all the ice cream. I'm going to stay up late and read it books. I think for me, what I identified is that I have this fear of relinquishing my control because nobody can do it as good as me or what if something happens because I'm not there. And so instead of enjoying myself and letting go, I was filling my life with guilt to the point of not enjoying these incredible gifts that I had been given a vacation a night out, a massage, a movie, go get your nails done.
Like go work out, spend 130 bucks on the gym that you want to go to because I will tell you when, when you don't have a full cup as a woman, we are less as mothers. When we don't have soul fuel, we are less as wives. When we are lacking, we are tired. We are snapping. We are angry. A guilt ridden, snappy, angry, non present woman is a hell of a lot worse. Then a woman with a full cup that doesn't have guilt holding her back. That takes time for herself. That spends money on herself. That pours into her fitness, her health, nice things for herself time with her husband time with her children, vacations, her spirituality. She takes 10 minutes a day to meditate because she deserves it. I deserve it. You deserve it. We deserve it to have soul fuel, coursing through our veins so that we can be the most incredible women that God has created.
And we can then go out and create incredible children and incredible families and incredible businesses and lead people in an incredible way. Am I right? Like, can I get a freaking amen for this one? We have to stop, stop feeling guilty, open your heart to what you need to fill your cup and then make it time for it. Spend money on it. You are worthy. You are worthy when you let go of that guilt and you surrender to all the things that you deserve. You will find, you will be strengthened. Your business will be better. Your relationship with your kids will be better. You will be refueled when you go on the vacation and you freaking enjoy it and you don't feel bad about it. And guess what? Your kids are having fun. They are having fun without you. Believe it or not. I've found when I got home, every time I went somewhere, my kids were in bed and they were just fine.
They maybe didn't brush their teeth to the fullest extent, but they're there and they're in bed and they're all good. And we have to stop. Stop, harboring everything, controlling everything and let it flow. Let it go. Let go of the guilt and just focus on the soul food in every aspect of her life and the balance. Those are the six things that I've learned in the past 18 months or so I challenge you start to implement these things. Did one of them speak to you? You heard that for a reason, you're on this episode for a reason. Do you know someone else that needs to hear this show, send it to them, send them the link. I challenge you to make a shift in your own life to let go of your old self so that you can find your new self, let go of control and forcing a path that may not be the right fit for you.
You were given incredible, unique, special gifts that only you have. There is not a one size fits all solution to what you should be doing. You should be doing something that is only for you, that lights you up. It doesn't matter what this girl over here is doing and how perfect this girl looks on social media. And she has so much success. That must be the answer. No, the answer is in your heart. And the answer comes from your zones of genius and your gifts that God has granted you and the blessings that you have. They're already here for you. The answers are here for you right now. You just have to stop forcing the path. I challenge you to be present. Get off social media, stop staring at your phone, detox at least once a month and just be here. Now, be here. Now open up to what fuels you, what lights your soul on fire and shift your sales from how do I make money today to how do I pour into somebody?
How do I help people ask yourself how you can be more selfless today and do something to lift someone up, pour into people and the money will flow. I promise you and fill your cup. Fill your soul. True balance is attainable. My friend, and you can have, and do any single thing that you decide and you intentionally take action to do. Take the step. Don't even think go, you fail good. You're growing. You fail again. Even better. You got stronger, you got tougher. You're still standing. And guess what? You are better for it. I am cheering for you. So I'm going to leave you with an abundance prayer today. I hope that this message came to something in your heart. I pray that you heard something in this message that can shift what you need to shift, to be your best you to take control of your life, to take control of your balance, to take control of your business and to know, and to trust that the best things are waiting for you.
If you just take action, I pray that God rafts you encourage right now, I pray that God wraps you in fearless courage, that you can take that step. I pray you have clarity in whatever you're searching for and that the answers flow to you now, and that you will know, and you will be able to go out and you will fearlessly go after the call on your heart. I pray that you have unlimited time to go out and accomplish all the things you need to accomplish. I pray that you are able to listen to your heart and you're able to ask for help when you need it and that the right help and the right answers appear before you. Thank you so much as always. My friends love it, Stef.
