I don’t have a degree. It’s something I don’t talk a lot about because I feel like people will judge me. The voices in my head tell me that everything I’m doing isn’t good enough because I don’t have the schooling to back it up. Here’s the thing though, that’s a lie. If you don’t know me, you may not know that when I set my mind to something it’s gonna happen. Even though I’m an Enneagram 9 and can flip-flop my ideas, I’m actually pretty stubborn. When I want something it most always happens. I could have let the naysayers tell me that I wouldn’t make it because I didn’t have a degree in “xyz” but I didn’t. I’m not gonna say I didn’t have a pity party because it feels crappy having people say that to you (or think it) I don’t have a piece of paper, but I do have 49,920+ hours of hard work into my businesses. I’ve learned that I am capable of more than I thought and then some. I may not know the technical terms for a lot of the business, marketing, psychology, advertising, etc out there but I know the meanings. I will never pretend to be something I’m not. But, I am a fighter. A hard worker. A truth teller. I believe that anyone with the drive, passion and gumption can create and excel at any business they choose. I believe that we can push past our adversities, boxes and bubbles into something so much bigger than we imagined. A degree is amazing and if you have one, two or three I bow to you. I just know that for me, not having one doesn’t define me or my success. Don’t let the things you’re ashamed or afraid of hold you back from doing great things.
Do you ever just sit and imagine what your perfect day would look like? . Sometimes I catch myself doing that when I’m at my computer. If I weren’t doing xyz what would I be doing? . I love my job(s). [i do oils and help women build businesses if you didn’t know] No matter how much you love what you do, you can still think about what it would be like doing something else. You follow me here? . For all you ladies out there that love what you do but still think about brunching with your girlfriends on a Tuesday, why don’t you? . Who put rules and limits on what our day is supposed to look like. Here’s the thing, you can be a rockstar boss babe AND take a 2 hour lunch to do whatever the heck you want. . Don’t limit yourself. I wanna hear what one thing you would do for YOU today if there was no time limit/commitment ❤️ 📷@dixieandtwine
Goals. . Do you really know yours? I know a lot of people won’t write their goals down for fear of not accomplishing them. Is that you? . No judgment from me at all. Let me give you some straight advice from one friend to another. . Write. Them. Down. . A few things happen when you do that. 1) you see them. In your face, waving/screaming to you. They’re harder to ignore that way. 2) you know where you’re going. If you don’t write down what you want to accomplish, or where you want to go... how in the world do you expect to get there? 3) physically writing them out does something to your brain. You are 42% more likely to achieve your goals if you write them down. . Do me a favor. Tell me what at least one of your goals is in the comments and then go physically write in on a post it note and stick it on your mirror/car/computer ❤️ (One of mine is in the comments)
We spent the first night in our new home last night. Feels a little surreal to be here because it’s been almost 2 years in the making. Feeling super grateful today. . What’s something you’re grateful for? ❤️
We’re moving some small things over to the house today! . Not gonna lie, stress level is high at the Koehler casa. Say a little prayer for us these next few days. My goal is to unpack as soon as possible! ❤️
It’s #nationalbookloversday and I couldn’t love this book or the author who wrote it more. . Have you read #bossupbook yet? If you haven’t go immediately to @target if you can snag a copy, @barnesandnoble. @audible or maybe your closet airport. This book is gonna change the way you view your business. It will kick you into high gear to follow your dreams 💯. . If you have read it, what’s your favorite takeaway? 📷@lindsayteague
I bought this @nissicaps hat at one of my fav local stores @shopbravecollective. . It says everything I believe about helping women build successful businesses. Two simple words that pack a punch. “You can” . If you’re a business owner that needs help describing what you do. If you want your website to convert visitors to paying customers. If you want a clear vision and understanding for what you do so you can relay that to your ideal customer. If you want to feel good about running your business and your home life. I can help you with that. . I’ll bring all the proven tools I’ve leaned to the table to make your business life easier. I have one spot left for my September sessions that could be yours if you want it. (Click the link in my bio to get more info) . If you’re ready to make the investment in your business, I’m ready for ya!
House mode . It’s a thing. We’ve kicked up to high gear with house stuff because we finally get to move in next week! I’ll be taking small boxes over the next few days but the movers come Monday 🎉 . It feels surreal. I’m ready to start setting up and decorating my new house! . Before I head out I wanted to remind you that I only have ONE slot left for my strategy sessions for the month. Are you ready? Click my bio link for all the info. I’m so excited!!
It’s launch day and I’m feeling all the feels. . If you don’t know what I’m talking about, I’ll fill you in. Over 17 years ago I became an entrepreneur (maybe solopreneur, but who’s counting?) I spent years figuring out how to make my business stand out. There were so many things I was reading and so many other people’s opinions that I didn’t know where to start. It wasn’t until I made some of my own mistakes and felt my own wins that I saw traction. I hated feeling like I wasn’t doing it “right” and second guessing myself. It was then that I found a love to help female entrepreneurs feel empowered and remove the struggles that I had personally felt from them if I could. . I’ve spent years figuring out what works, many dollars on classes and certifications to make me better and hard earned sweat and tears to make me profitable. . And now I want to share that with you. Today I’m launching my strategy sessions, designed to make your business life easier. Along with my many years of running businesses experience I also have the tools from Storybrand in my tool belt. So I won’t just be giving you my opinion on how to make your business work for you, I’ll be giving you proven strategies and ways to clarify your brands message or maybe make your website stand out to convert to paying customers. If you want to dive into your Enneagram, I’ve got you covered there too (it’s a part of one of my strategy sessions) . These sessions were designed with YOU in mind. Every session has a different offering depending on where you’re at in your business. We spend a month together online to cover the topic of whatever brand session you chose. . This is a highly personal, time consuming process and I want you to get the most out of it so I’m only offering 3 sessions per month to keep it personal and info/task packed. . My heart behind this is to help you grow your business and get clarity so you can have the confidence you deserve doing the thing that you love. . Interested? Click my bio link. Can’t wait to work with you! ❤️
California vibes. . Back in the place I was born and raised. . Where are you from?
