Bootcamp Day 23 & 24 of 💯 is complete🔥🔥!! Since starting Phase 2 we’ve been introducing new movements into each workout, and I am LOVING it!!
In Bootcamp today, we discussed priorities and I started to reflect 🤔.
Right before I started this program I left my 21 year career to start a new. That industry always forced me to put myself, my husband and the things I valued most in life last. It was the nature of the beast. While I was great at my job (and paid well to do it), I was completely miserable in it.🙍🏻♀️ I knew I had to make a change, and start creating a life I wanted to live versus living to work.
And while this change is a work in progress (and kind of scary, since the path is unknown), I knew I needed to take a leap of faith and I trust the moves I’m making. I’d rather try and stumble over 👊🏻 and over 👊🏻 again until my goals become a reality, versus never trying and wondering what my life with my husband could’ve been.
Since taking action and starting MM100 - I’m learning how to manage stress in a healthier manner, to be more present in life, to not focus on things I can’t control or change, to make a conscious effort to fuel my body properly, and to make my health & well being a priority. 💚 These changes and program have helped shape a new perspective.
My biggest takeaway from today is to not only prioritize the things you love in life, but to take appropriate actions and understand that it is a marathon - not a sprint. Jobs will come and go, money will do the same, but living and creating a life you love is 1000% worth any sacrifice made.
Interview with the school today, I’m so excited.
First interview (outside my business) I’ve had in 9years 😳
After accomplishing my cover letter I’m feeling far more confident in what I’m doing. I love working with kids, I think I’ll love being in the school setting. The position is a sub van driver just to get my foot in the door.i have full intentions of applying for a full time position as they open up.
Roll on a little hot over my heart, Valor on my neck fir confidence and highest potential on wrists cuz I’m extra like that. Any extra boost I can possibly get 🥰 #careerchange#oilup#oilyconfidence#workingwithkids#lowellschools

What if you had a way to make money that was fun *and* taught you more about women’s sexual health than you ever thought possible? What if you could share that info and change lives? Have you considered starting a direct sales business but aren’t sure it’s for you? That’s how it was for me. Fortunately, the idea of selling vibrators didn’t seem so bad, so I ordered my kit and treaded slowly. 16 years later, it was the best career choice I ever made, and definitely a top life choice. Because if my surgery tomorrow, I’ll have more time to help welcome and train anyone who wants to join my team Good Vibe Nation. You CAN sit with us! We need consultants all across Canada and the USA. If your curiosity is peaked, slide into my DM’s 😉. There’s never any pressure from me, and no encouraging cold calls and vomiting all over people to create success. My job is to help you find the best YOU you can be, because people will gravitate to you when you do. This is just the tip of the iceberg. Curious?

The theme for this week is: Using Joy to Find Your Purpose! ⠀
I received this gorgeous doodle from @themultipassionista and it came at exactly the right time…because this week is all about joy!! ⠀
Joy is one of my favorite topics to cover. Why? Well, it should be pretty obvious…It’s fun! How can you possibly be in a bad mood when your job is to talk about joy all day? ⠀
Plus, I’ve always had a special connection to joy. It’s my middle name ☀️ ⠀
Why focus a whole week on joy? ⠀
Because understanding what brings you joy is a key element to finding your purpose. ⠀
I’ve been teaching women to find their purpose for three years now and I’ve found that there’s a Soul Purpose Sweet Spot. ⠀
The sweet spot is when you are using your natural strengths and abilities to accomplish things that bring you joy and all of that is in support of a mission that matters to you. Bonus points if you can make money while doing it! ⠀
Have you found your Soul Purpose Sweet Spot yet? ⠀
Join the group Heart Centered Women: Find Your Purpose to to learn more about the soul purpose sweet spot and how to discover yours. (Link in bio!)

In this episode, @CEOofCHANGE, Joseph Caldwell discusses how the fear of success and the fear of failure all really boils down to the fear of the unknown.

I've been quiet for a while, but I've been working on something big. Bigger than #toycustoms (though I'm still working on those). I, uh... I'm doing a #careerchange from #graphicdesign to #englishteacher !
So, yeah, that's a thing I'm doing! My #firstdayofschool was on Monday and I'm already feeling slightly overwhelmed, but it's okay! I will conquer! You hear that @usiedu? YOUR KNOWLEDGE SHALL BE MIIIINE! (I'm feeling a little Invader Zim -ish)
As September is approaching fast, and I’m getting the kids ready for going back to school and pre k. It’s time for me to make a few decisions. I am so ready to return to work, but a different path. I want to pursue my dream occupation, and that’s to be a realtor and also buy and do up houses! As a mummy though, I have as much guilt as excitement for this opportunity. I may have to put my little boy in full time care whilst I study and then once I get a job. I hate the thought of this, but deep down I know he will be ok. He has had 4.5 yrs at home with his mummy and it’s time for him to grow without me constantly there. My husband supports me 100% in my career change,and I am lucky and fortunate enough to be in a position to pursue it wether I bring money in or not! I have to thank my husband for this, as he has worked so hard to get to where he is today and provide us with everything we could possible need or want! I hope I am able to be as successful as him @mpls_jacko#learning#studytime#realtor#fliphouses#besuccessful#careerchange#excited#excitingtimesahead

Is this keeping you stuck??😱
If you’ve ever wanted to switch careers, or quit work that you no longer love... but you keep thinking “But what a WASTE that would be to give up on something I spent so much time/money/effort on???”...
Then you’re going to want to read my latest blog post about something called the “Sunk Cost Fallacy”. It’s a real tricky psychological thing our brains do that often keeps us stuck... so maybe it’s time to rethink that all bullshit!🙅🏻♀️
Btw this whole blog post was inspired by a conversation I had with one of YOU 🙌 A follower DMed me and we got to talking about career change (swipe to see how that convo turned out) 😉
So I just wanted to say THANK YOU for opening up, sharing with me, and making this space such a positive, inspirational place for all of us 🤗

You know what's awesome?
Being able to crack the code and go from a circa 2014 LinkedIn profile to a shiny, new updated profile ready for 2019.
You know what's awesomer?
Being able to do that FOR FREE.
You know what's awesomest?
Being able to do that in less than 30 minutes with ME by your side.
I'm freeing up my entire week, August 26-30, and having a LinkedIn Profile Perfection Week.
Where I'll take lucky action-takers, people who haven't given their LinkedIn profile some love in a while, know they should… but are overwhelmed by where even to start.
Here's what you will walk away with:
✔️After this call, you will have a specific plan based on YOUR LinkedIn profile that tells you precisely what you should update on your LinkedIn profile and why and how.
There is just one catch, although I opened up my entire calendar for Linked In Profile Perfection Week and there are only so many spots, and I am not sure when I will be doing this again.
Grab a spot (link in bio) or comment below if you want in.
Being productive doesn’t mean how much shit you can cram into an 8 hour day. Quite the opposite, actually. ~
If you tackle a few small things that have been driving you insane and you feel you did them at 100% then why burn yourself out?
I always tell my clients to approach job search this way. Chunk it out. Maybe you start with 30 minutes a day of just looking online. We gotta start somewhere. ~
Let’s ditch them hamster wheel and do less tasks that add more value and give us more satisfaction. Who’s in? 👋🏼 📷 by @sophiemathewsonphotography

This is how I used to meditate... #arttherapy with a light music or an audiobook!
Miss it! Need to start again. 🥺
When my life was extremely stressful, I started learning Tazhib from an amazing instructor on my trips to Iran. The rest, I worked on my own with a book and the dedication that I have toward anything I start... but I have been occupied with other things and haven’t gotten a chance to set up an area in my new house.... I want to paint again, even for few hrs a month!
چند سال پيش وقتى زندگيم پر از استرس بود، ياد گرفتم نقاشى كنم! براى اولين بار توى عمرم! استاد خوبم خانم خوشبخت توى سفرهاى ايرانم بهم درس ميداد و بقيه رو از روى كتاب پيشنهادى ايشون ياد ميگرفتم... با عشق ميكشيدم هر چند رنگ و تركيب رنگها رو نميدونستم. خيلى زحمت كشيدم ولى بلاخره با كيفيتى بود كه دلم ميخواست. از وقتى اومدم خونه جديد، با اينكه كارام بسيار زياده و استرسم هم بالا، هنوز جايي رو برا نقاشى كردن تعبيه نكردم! دلم تنگ شده! سعى ميكنم دوباره شروع كنم... وقت رو بايد بسازم! @zahrakhoshbakht46 ❤️ #tazhib#artwork#careerwoman#transition#careerchange

Do you keep track of your accomplishments and experiences? We're not just talking about a CV during grad school, but recording volunteer activities, skills developed, projects assisted on, committees that you participated in, conferences you helped organize, student groups you were a part of? ⠀
Sometimes we do so much we forget these things! Keeping track of these experiences can also help you think about what skills & tasks you enjoy when you start to look into postac, altac careers.
You've heard the saying before , you network is your net worth. And for some of us, that doesn't seem too promising. We're going to change that narrative. As I mentioned before, for those of you attending my professional networking event I want to make sure you make the best of the event. While this may be your first networking event, I can rest assure you it won't be your last. I've cultivated some amazing relationships from networking events I have attended in the past, even made some powerful connections too. It's not always what you know but who you know is equally important. I promised to help you get prepared and I'm going to do just that.
So….before you go, couple things I need you to do:
🔸Know your 'Why'🤔, why are you attending this event? I challenge you to establish 3 things you want to walk away with before you leave the event. Plan the work so that you can work the plan.
🔸Dress for Success👗👔, while you aren't coming to fashion show keep in mind you may connect with your future employer or business partner. Certainly first impressions do last forever, make yours worth remembering.
🔸Business Cards📇are NOT a thing of the past in fact it's the preferred way of exchanging information in this type of setting. Perhaps your personal cell you're not ready to disclose just yet, you don’t have to.
Make this event worth your while, I certainly will!
Are you someone who saves up all year to go on ONE holiday? Do you see people travelling the world living their insta-perfect happy lives - and you want that too?
If this sounds like you then DM me and let's talk 💗 #bemorebliss
There are several reasons why I decided to start my coaching business and I thought it might help you to get a better understanding of what some of these are.
My career journey has been far from perfect I have been through my own fair share of ups and downs and honestly it took me too long to realise there was no way I was alone and that there were so many others that could do with my help and support to change their stories.
Was I afraid to leave my job and venture into the unknown - YES
Been out of work for more than 6 months ! - YES
Been able to change careers and industry - YES
Been able to escape the catch 22 that is “in order to get experience you have to have experience” - YES
Suffered from imposter syndrome and been able to overcome it and not let it over come me - YES
Negotiated a significant salary increase - YES
Gotten a promotion - YES
Been able to overcome interview anxiety - YES
Been able to get career clarity - YES
This isn’t just about what I have seen happen to friends, family or in my job. Neither is it about text book strategies but it is about the real life experiences I myself have been through and overcome and that’s why I know it requires a mindset shift as well as tools and techniques.
I not only know the best way to overcome some of the things you are struggling with but I have been there, lived it and come out on the other side winning and I tell you hindsight is incredible. The truth is there is so much to navigate in the world of work and there is nothing wrong with having someone in your corner to help you do it. How many successful athletes do you know that we’re able to achieve success without a coach !
This is not a coincidence yes these players had the skill but they needed the support of that coach to get them through it to be the best version of themselves be it Wimbledon the Olympics or the World Cup !
