This human here has and will be one of my greatest teachers in this lifetime👈🏾 • It’s funny because I still get asked, “how the heck did this all happen?” and my response is always, the universe and a lot of hard work. Which I believe with every bone in my body. • Our story of finding each other in such different seasons of life will forever be one of my faves; because it taught me that every single thing we put energy into matters!! • Deciding to say NO to joyless jobs and YES to creating a life I love! Taking that 50% pay cut to shift fields and start a new path supporting small businesses. Believing in myself enough to start + build a business. • All stepping stones to my current reality 🖤 • Please don’t for a second perceive my life or path to mirror any form of perfection. It isn’t and nor is anyone else’s. More so, I hope you read these words, take a breath, and refuel your belief that you have everything you need to make moves 👊🏾( even if they feel minuscule )!! • Got a game changer in your life too?

I felt it hard👆🏾 • I had an experience last week that wrecked me. Like one of those fist pounding on desk, ugly cry kinda wrecked. • In the moment, I couldn’t see any light. But here we are and I can tell ya truthfully that that experience wrecked me in the best, most beautiful way. • Becoming aware of yourself and how you project internalized narratives onto others feels like ripping off bandaids on old wounds that haven’t breathed in a long time. It’s fricken FREEING! • I mean, who else is tired of their own shit ??! • I’m not ashamed in the least to admit that my internal work is next level ready and that means, stepping back into therapy to work through closing past chapters, being accountable to the way in which I feel and living a fear-free life. • This year is MY year! It’s about being the best ME I can possibly be. Ya with me? • Whether mental, physical, knowledge based, what goals have you set for your personal growth this year?👇🏾 Let’s cheer each other on!!!
This is a lil meaty, but stick with me! • Hello sweet world, it’s me, Marisa! I've been behind the scenes scrolling with love and admiration of your accomplishments, and in awe of the goals you’ve set for the year ahead. • I used to feel such immense pressure to show up and share all of the same things within these teeny tiny squares; but now in days, my mind wanders towards different things. #life! Ya get me? • Science was probably right when they said your self-concept solidifies in your late 20’s because as I approach my next decade of life, I feel more in tune than ever before. • Virtual Zen is evolving and so am I, the typer behind the text, the heart and human behind the screen; but let’s pump sed breaks for a minute as this isn’t totally about me!! • If you’re new here or have been following along since day one, here’s what you can expect as we continue to put up virtual high fives and support + learn from each other whether strangers or not! • Ready to outsource and hire a Virtual Assistant but have no idea where too start?

Sunday’s are for snuggling in, PJ parties, movie marathons and leftover 🍕 am I right? • Well, that’s what they look like in casa del Jacobsen at least! And I’m not mad about any of it. • This week, we slowed down and celebrated another anniversary together and I have to tell you, it was one of my favorite yet. • The holidays can feel so unbelievably hectic!! Like, who else has gone into full grinch mode by being overbooked and just dang tired?? Yea, I’m right there with you! • So as the holidays persist, I challenge you ( and myself!) to practice the power of “No”. • Especially if you just don’t WANT to do whatever it is to begin with!! #saveyourselfthestruggle • How do you maintain your best self while rallying through the holidays?👇🏾
I bet you have days like this too.. • Those kinda days when wins seem sparse, as do brain cells and as you blankly stare at your screen or two, you feel the force to forge ahead while also silently admitting to yourself that bed might be a better bet. • I can see it in your eyes as you read this. You get me. You’ve been there. You’ve felt it. • My solution? Don’t have one. It’s just one of those damn days!! • But I will say, ( because ya’ll know I like to keep it positive), at least you know now you aren’t alone 🖤
