Today’s affirmation is: I forgive myself.

As I’m recording this it’s the last few hours on the last day of the year. For many of us, this year has been A LOT. It came with some high highs and some really low lows. And when things go bad, the tendency is to treat yourself badly, too. We talk down to ourselves. We bring up past failures. Sometimes, we can be downright mean. It has to stop. It’s time to forgive…not them, you.

I’ve been hearing two loud but different messages on how you should approach the month. One is to Finish Strong. Buckle down the last few weeks of the year. Do whatever you can to make holiday sales.

The second message is to Finish Light. Rather than attempt to finish the year strong, do as little work as possible. Set your business aside for a bit.

Not sure which of these you should choose? Listen to find out my suggestion. I even s...

Today's affirmation is: I Stay in My Lane.

If you find yourself comparing your life to others in a way that's unhealthy, you're probably in the wrong lane.

If you have shiny object syndrome and regularly jump from project to project, this affirmation will help.

And if you micromanage the people you've hired to help you because your way is the only way, learning how to stay in your lane can change that.

In this episode, I run through ea...

Today's affirmation is: I embrace guilt-free rest.

Do you know how to rest? I don’t mean when you stop working on one project in favor of another or forego client work to wash the dishes. I mean true, relaxed body, guilt-free rest.

It’s okay if you don’t. Not many of us entrepreneurs do.

There’s this pressure to jump right back in no matter what's going on in your personal life. It's a silent fear that if we take time off from school...

The success of your day is not only measured by productivity. Use the affirmation at bedtime to release the stress of the day.

Picture this. You’re at the end of a phone call with your ideal client. You’d love to work with them, and they seem excited to move forward with you, too. “So,” they start, “I really need what you offer. It’s just what I’ve been looking for. How much is it?” Do you confidently share your pricing model, or do you nervously share a number that you hope they say yes to?

If you’re not confident in pricing your services or sharing your p...

At the end of last year, I was so excited for the calendar to turn. Were you excited, too? We set our business goals, created vision boards and hit the ground running.

But where does that leave us and our goals for the rest of 2020?
