TFW your hair is more dry shampoo than actual hair #busymomlife I legit can't remember when I washed my hair - maybe 5 days ago? Real talk - this is why I'm grateful for non-toxic products. Not just because I know it's not adding any build-up in my hair, but because if I leave it on my scalp (which absorbs chemicals 5-10x faster than other areas of the body 😱 ) for a few days I don't have to worry about what's entering my bloodstream. #nontoxicwin - amiright?
Working on something exciting - more to come soon!! 🔮
You can build your freelancing business and plan your escape from Corporate America while still working! Here are four tips to help you turn in that resignation sooner rather than later: Mindset! I always put mindset first because it’s honestly theeee cornerstone of success. Tell yourself THERE IS NO PLAN B. Tell yourself that this period of hustle is temporary. Get crystal-effing-clear on what success looks like for you “I have 5 dream clients, work 25 hours a week, and make $5000 per month” and write that affirmation down EVERY SINGLE DAY. Focus on your why- mine is to Stay home with my babies + keep my husband home with us! Set the Finish Line! Seriously, everyone needs the light at the end of the tunnel. Whether its $1000 a month, $3000 a month or $5000 a month. What is the trigger that will let you send in your resignation?? Keep this number close at heart! Be Proactive About Your Business! As you begin signing clients you want to keep that positive momentum going, you want to be able to continue to raise your rates, you want to continue to fill your roster! This means you have to work on YOUR business, not just your clients’ businesses. The good news: this can be done in as little as 20 focused minutes a day. Just as easy as it is TO do, it’s equally easy to NOT do, so make sure it stays a priority. Stay Smart About Money! This is a hard one, at least is was for me. As you start building your client roster and signing clients it’s easy to see this as “extra” money, and just start adding it to your monthly spending. This only takes you further away from your goal. I HIGHLY recommend starting Profit First – even in the infancy of your business! These habits will help to set you up for long term financial success. Let’s hop on a discovery call this week to write out your roadmap to resignation!
Thoughts do NOT equal facts❗️ My sister has this belief that all negative thoughts and perceived negative happenings are null and void on Mondays - I believe she’s into something 🤔 Meaning.... ❌That whisper inside your head telling you that you're living your life all wrong - doesn't count ❌The feeling you get sitting at your desk, wondering why you even work there - doesn't count ❌The barista at the coffee shop who seemed irritated at your non-daity milk request - doesn't count Mondays can be hard sometimes. Let's not make them any harder by giving into the negative thoughts or reading too much into the happenings of the day🙅🏻♀️ I listened to a @dontkeepyourdayjob podcast over the weekend (season 4 episode 15 ) where #cathyheller said, "Thoughts are not facts." 🤯 This hit my ears hard👂💥She goes on in the podcast to say, ..."just because you think it doesn't mean it's true." #micdrop How often (especially on Mondays...at least for me ) do we tell ourselves terrible things🙄 Things that are negative, things that are flat out mean and things that if we're being honest have ZERO basis in reality??? We do this probably more than we care to admit, at least I know I do🤦🏻♀️ Whenever you find yourself experiencing negative thoughts, judgements or feelings today just remind yourself, "Thoughts do not equal facts." And maybe also remind yourself, "It's Monday, so it doesn't count." Let Monday happen the way it's going to happen and it'll all turn out 👌 👌👌 We got this♥️We can sooooo make it to Tuesday🙌 Who's with me??? 🙋🏽♀️in the comments if you’ll give this approach a try today 🙌 #mondaymotivation #thoughtsarenotfacts #DKYDJ #podcastrecommendation #inspirationalpodcast #Mondaydoesntcount #zerotolernencemonday #letitbe #letithappen #youareworthy #donotbelievethelie #dontkeepyourdayjob #youmatter #mentalhealthmonday #mondayinspiration

Cathy Heller returns to the show this week. Cathy is the host of the Don’t Keep Your Day Job Podcast & author of the acclaimed book, “Don’t Keep Your Day Job”. . In this episode, @amyjomartin & @cathy .heller have an honest & playful conversation. Nothing is off-limits. Cathy is in the business of helping people find their purpose and quit their jobs. She shares what that means & what she’s learned along the way. Cathy also discusses how she navigates “the messy middle”; the time during a big transition when things get complicated & messy. .

This time last year I was stressing over trial binders, forgetting to respond to important emails, a-hole clients, and how I was going to manage another 8 hour day in stupid heels. Now, I mostly stress over traffic, boo-boos, and pee accidents. I love what I do and I love the kids I get to spend my days with. I’m still trying to figure it all out but life is a heck of lot different than a year ago, and I am so thankful for that 💙🙏🏼
This hit me HARD Straight into the heart and soul WOAH So easily worded but so profound If we live each year the same as the last have we really lived? Have we truly grown, evolved, experienced, and existed meaningfully if we never change? I challenge you all to do something different this week Whether it’s changing up where you normally walk or run Or maybe try a new restaurant or make a new friend Book that weekend getaway you’ve been talking about Watch a movie you “would never watch” Order a completely different drink at the bar Just change it up, even just a little, try something new and fun Maybe you’ll love the change or maybe you’ll hate it But at least you did something different and you lived!
This was a punch in the gut the first time I heard it. . Honestly, it still is... All the things that frustrate me... The things "I'm too tired" or "are too difficult" or "it isn't practical" to work on... Or to remove from my life... By not doing anything about them, I'm actually choosing to keep those things a part of my life. . That moment when you look around and realize there's no one to blame but yourself... That's the time to get to work. . What are you done tolerating? . #words #inspo #dkydj #dontkeepyourdayjob #tolerate #grow #truthbomb #choose

What would you say the opposite of depression is? You might believe its happiness but if you listen to @cathy .heller chances are you will change your perspective to believe that the opposite of happiness is purpose. I signed up for her, Made To Do This mastermind course honing in on discovering my purpose and working on going from my zone of excellence to my zone of genius. One outcome so far is that it’s made me realize how much I miss painting something I haven’t really done since college. Cathy is such a humble, kind soul filled with an enormous amount of knowledge, experience and energy that I carve more of. She recently published a book titled, Don’t Keep Your Day Job which is also the title of her amazing podcast. This girl is the real deal. . . . #cathyheller #dontkeepyourdayjob #courage #purpose #oppositeofhappinessispurpose #flytheplanewhilebuildingtheengine #couragetakes20seconds #bravery #action #takeaction #bekind #zoneofexcellence #zoneofgenius #getmessy
🧴 Went through my closet and realized I have WAY more lotion than I could ever use. 📫 Sold this last night! 🥳
#bestyearever update: I'm on fire right now! From ninja showoffs to epic conferences to incredible studio sessions it is ALL happening. Just proof you gotta ride out the storm in life sometimes. The sun never looked warmer than it does for me right now.
I have an incredibly toxic 8:30-5. Ironically it is a facility that is supposed to serve humans and provide health education. My experience the past 3ish years has felt similar to a cycle of insanity. • Good leadership is the kind that knows how to truly trust and appreciate their staff. Appreciation comes in the form of allowing professionals to be who they are and be their best self. Allow professionals to shine, grow and develop their trade. • If we can incorporate tiny things that are action steps towards our truest service in passion each day to get us to where we truly belongs that’s what matters. • I presented last week and thankfully received the following feedback. I am even more reminded that I am supported by the people who matter most. • Kirsten, Thank you so much for the awesome presentation! The members said you were fantastic, excellent and had so much good information there wasn’t time for all of it. I have NEVER received so many positive emails from our members about a speaker. Here are direct quotes: "The speaker was excellent! She gave out information that really hit home with me and I was able to share with my husband. I'd welcome her again anytime.” " The speaker was fantastic. So glad you arranged that for us. I hope she is able to return again to speak. One of the best we have had.” "Learned so much from today’s enthusiastic, fun, brilliant speaker! Thank you for all you do to make our meetings AMAZING!” "EXCELLENT SPEAKER today. Get her back!! She is full of info which she couldn't get to. I would like to hear her discuss mind/body/health connection. • YOU matter, what you have to offer matters. You deserve to be seen and heard. Even if you’re not entirely in alignment with your serving purpose yet-you will be. Keep shining your light because people need it despite the system trying to keep you down. #youmatter #shareyourstory #mentalhealthawareness #dontkeepyourdayjob #babysteps #alignment #lightworkers
I don’t have to agree with every choice you make to love every way that God made you. (God/Universe/Spirit/Source/Creator ) I don’t have to like every single thing you like to love everything about you. I don’t have to think exactly like you think to love you exactly as you are. Because I do ... and I’m just so glad you’re here. ❤️✨🙏🏼

We belittle ourselves, we negate ourshelves we forget that God does not make EXTRA’S !!! By Cathy Heller In this season of my life I will continue to rise, stop doubting myself and putting myself down for not feeling good enough. This perfection mentality has hindered me from going so far and doing so much of what I dream about and feel almost every day. I am not an extra, but I am definitely the most EXTRAVAGANT of them all because I am wonderfully and beautifully made by the master 🖼 He keeps the truth and nothing but the truth.

💥HEY GURL HEYYYY💥 ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ First off, I’m so fucking honored that nearly 1,300 of you amazing humans have chosen to follow my journey. Each one of your comments and DMs truly makes me smile and lights me up, so thank you. 💓 ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ It’s also been a minute since I did an intro so I thought I’d share a few facts that you may or may not know about me. 🙋🏼♀️ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ 👦🏻👦🏼 I am a mom to two hilarious and wild little dudes ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ 🍷🍺 Pinot Noir and any IPA are my boozy drinks of choice ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ 👩🏼💻 I worked in corporate for 20 years, but left 3 weeks ago to pursue my true soul purpose of coaching ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ 🌮🌯🥑 Mexican food is my jam ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ❄️☃️ I grew up near DC, but I’ve lived in New Hampshire for the past 12 years ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ 🔮 I’m finally out of the woo-woo closet and embracing all things energy, oracle, and crystal ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ 🧘🏼♀️📚 Yoga and reading are my fave forms of self-care ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ 📖 I will finally start writing my book this year ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Now I want to learn about youuuuu!! Leave one emoji about yourself in the comments! ✨ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
Time to plan and get ready for next week! Every weekend we plan out our meals for the week and go grocery shopping. Makes it SO MUCH EASIER! ps. So far we have paid off $1200 in debt this month including our best buy cc! 🎉 and we will be paying off more soon!
Before you unplug for the weekend spend 15 Minutes Doing THIS. Reflect on your sales data for the week ⬇️ Throw this info in a super simple Excel Spreadsheet or G Sheet. How many discovery calls did you have? How many jobs did you apply for? How many people did you pitch to? How many follow up emails did you send? New contracts signed/New sales dollars Contracts renewed Clients lost There’s no right or wrong answer for any of these questions. No magic number. No elaborate formula. But one thing I do know for certain - what you focus on, gets fixed; what you track, improves! Not just in business but in life- think of stepping on a scale daily or reconciling finances daily. If you want to sign more clients, if you want to grow your email list or wait list, if you want to allocate your time doing activities that produce results - you have to track the data! Happy FriYAY!
Going into the weekend like... . . . I got the heart of hero... . Thank you @irisbonetmusic for bringing the fire!!! Duet??? . Have a beautiful weekend! . #dkydj #hardtobehuman #dontkeepyourdayjobpodcast #dontkeepyourdayjob #brave #strongerthanyesterday #heartofgold #strengthquotes #strengthening #singersofinstagram
I could listen to @alypeace101 ’s voice over and over. . . . So I encouraged her to post it! My kids loved it too! . #beautiful #singersofinstagram #duets #singersongwriters #musiciansofinstagram #creativelive #momlifestyle #bloggerlifestyle #dontkeepyourdayjobpodcast #dontkeepyourdayjob #dkydj
My face when someone says "I don't think I'd be good at it." Here's the deal: Whether you think you can, or you think you can't, you're right. What if instead of asking "what if I'm not good enough" you start asking "what if I'm more than good enough - what if I'm great?" I don't let just anyone into my circle. The truth is, you can't sit with us if you have a negative attitude, if you don't believe in yourself enough to TRY, if you aren't willing to dream bigger. So yeah, if you go in thinking you're going to suck, you're probably going to prove yourself right. But if you go in WILLING to suck a little at the beginning, willing to learn, you'll surprise yourself more often than not.
My sweet friend gave me this last night, as she knows I am on a journey to find my passion in life. What a great reminder! I am Made To Do This!! 💕 Share what your passion is 👇 #domoreofwhatmakesyouhappy #onajourney #discoveringme #whatisyourpassion #madetodothis #mtdt #dontkeepyourdayjob #thoughtfulgift

Each morning I set a goal to get up early before going to my #9to5 to create and build inventory...today was a bow making day. I actually got three sets completed (not posting all of them )...I love the psychedelic flowers with the purple and dots! Also, I wanted to give a shoutout to a new friend @eiditchoochage that I made yesterday from listening to a podcast on #dontkeepyourdayjob that is hosted by @cathy .heller ...Eidit is a Therapist/Life Coach. Be sure to check out her podcast on apple Therapeutic Life Healing. It’s awesome!!! #mompreneur #momstuff #girlsrock #girlsaccessories #hairbows #hairbowshandmade #toddleraccessories #toddlerbows #headband #headbands #headbandstyle #tulle
Big Truth Bomb 💣 [You'll want to save this for later!] I wasted so many years of my life filled with anxiety about making the right decision or what someone really meant by what they said. Can you relate??? My heart breaks for the girl who didn't have enough belief in herself to listen to her heart. It all comes down to confidence. If you don't have alignment with your inner self on what you want versus your actions, you'll continue to spend time questioning and overcomplicating. Here are some steps you can take to take back your confidence: 1️⃣ Identify your strengths, and start playing to them. If you're an amazing teacher, start helping people learn your favorite subject. If you're a great listener, ask more questions and help others find the help they need. 2️⃣ Ask if what you're currently doing aligns with what you want in life. If you're stuck at a 9-5 but you're dying to start a coaching business, start putting aside a few hours a week to make that dream come true. Say no to extra work that isn't your responsibility that drains you of your time and energy. It also helps to surround yourself with a community of like-minded women who have similar goals and dreams! 3️⃣ Take care of yourself. Moving your body, eating right, and choosing non-toxic products can go a long way to giving you energy and clearing your head to make important decisions. Put on an outfit that makes you feel good. Do your hair. You'll be amazed at how much more powerful you feel when you put a little time into your appearance. It's not about looking good for others, it's about bringing out your inner confidence! As for me? Still a work in progress. But I'll tell ya one thing sis, I don't spend as much time questioning my decisions as I do what shirt to wear 😂 What's one thing you wish you could tell your younger self to stop stressing about?
The market ISN’T over saturated. There is MORE than enough room + business for all of us. When responding to a #jobopp or pitching to a potential client don’t feel lost in the sea. You just have to make yourself stand out - it’s as simple as spending just a few minutes putting in the effort! ✅ Do some research and genuinely find a way to connect ✅ Start with a personalized intro ✅ Address the need, focus on the solution ✅ Provide value ✅ Double and triple check names, spelling, grammar ✅ Follow through and follow up! Drop an emoji if you agree!
"The universe doesn't care about ready. The universe responds to brave." 🙌 How can you break your own ceiling and step into your zone of genius? @cathy .heller shares an important coaching call about how to embrace the pain to end your suffering, what the imperfect first versions of The Simpsons and Seth Godin's blog really looked like, how to summon 20 seconds of courage, and what opportunities will rain on you when you decide to be available for the life you deserve 🌈 Listen here https://apple.co/3bQclku #podcast #dontkeepyourdayjob #dontkeepyourdayjobpodcast #cathyheller #mindset #entrepreneur #creativeentrepreneur #raiseyourupperlimit #raiseyourceiling #personalgrowth #personaldevelopment #gayhendricks #zoneofgenius What's your favorite takeaway? 1.

We reach for the highest branch we see possible. 💫 4. When you give yourself permission to make mediocre things, the brilliant things slip through. ✨ 5. Getting better is the path to better. 💗 6.

When you are available and ambitious, the opportunities rain all over you. 💎💎
Only TWO MORE WEEKS in my 9-5 🎉 ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ These first few weeks of 2020 have been nothing short of magical. ✨ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ I’ve secured two consulting and two coaching clients for February 🙌 ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ I attended the most wonderful retreat with the most amazing women and made some lifelong friends 👯♀️ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ I’ve been to LA (my happy place ) TWICE 🌇 ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ I’m going out on a high note at my 9-5 after managing our most successful Golden Globes partnership to date 🏆 ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ I am full of confidence and faith that this is the path I’m meant to be following. 💓 ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ And you know how I did it? It only took one thing. Two words to change my life. ✨MINDSET SHIFT✨ I changed my beliefs which changed my actions which changed my results. That’s it. Your mind is a muscle that just needs a new workout regime. And I’d love to help you do it. Consider me a personal trainer for your thoughts and by the time we’re done?? GIRL. You’re going to KNOW you can do things you never thought possible. Slide into my DMs and let’s get you on the path to the life of your dreams. 💞
I looked around and felt giddy. There was a point while painting this, when I thought I was done but actually didn’t stop until like two or three hours later at 3am. I felt like I had actualized one of my abstract figure paintings. Not only had the mural more or less leap onto the wall unplanned but also with my presence became like my piece with all of the marks exploding from my head.
This week’s theme has been all about stretching and expanding, so I’m stepping out of my comfort zone (and in front of the 🤳 ) to introduce myself. 👋 Figured it was about time since there are so many new folks dropping by my feed lately. A little about me…My name is Shannon. I’m a photographer, wayfinder (aka trained @themarthabeck life coach ), published writer, travel addict, music lover, creative, seeker, free spirit. Yep - I’m the quintessential multi-passionate, which before learning this was a an actual thing, I interpreted as a major character flaw. Now I embrace my “flakiness” by harnessing the power of my various talents & passions. I serve purpose-driven, soul-led women creatives and entrepreneurs by weaving coaching, mindfulness, & a hint of ✨woo✨ into their personal brand photography sessions. Fun facts: ➡️ I’m a Libra ♎️(both ☀️& 🌙 sign ), but I think I should’ve been a Cancer 🦀 . Bonus fact, my husband and both of my kids are 🦀🦀🦀. Oh, and my mama too 🦀. So, I’m surrounded by them.😂 ➡️ I hate taking selfies🤳. I’m of the pre-📱 generation, so I feel like I’ve never quite gotten the hang of it. And frankly, it’s just not a skill I am that interested in developing. ➡️ I hate watching movies 🎥 , but I’ll spend all damn day binge-watching Netflix programs. I’m especially partial to 🇬🇧 British 🇬🇧 crime dramas (Luther, Shetland, Broadchurch ), and I am slightly obsessed with Idris Elba. ➡️ I swear. A lot. (But I’ll try to keep it mostly PG-13 on this page ). 🤭 ➡️ I’ve seen 🉑 Pearl Jam 🉑 in concert 69 times, in 20 different states and 16 different countries. AND COUNTING. 🤘🤘🤘 ➡️ If I could eat banana cream pie for breakfast every day, I would. With ☕️, no cream, no sugar. Thank you very much. Your turn! ❓What’s one thing I don’t know about you❓ 👇 Leave it in the comments below👇
Did you ever play the game “hot and cold” when you were a kid? You know — the one where you’re just wandering around aimlessly searching for something, and sometimes you get closer (“hotter” ), and sometimes you go further away (“colder” ), but no matter what happens you keep on moving until you find what you were looking for? That’s kinda how I feel right now. Wandering around — giving things a shot, taking chances, and wandering somewhat aimlessly between hotter and colder. The key though: don’t 👏🏼 stop 👏🏼 moving. Don’t settle for anything less than finding that thing you’ve been searching for. For most of us, that thing, simply is: joy. Follow the things that light you up. Pivot away from the things that don’t. And don’t. Stop. Moving. That’s where you’ll find me these days: enthusiastically wandering towards “hotter.” - #herpnwlife #dontkeepyourdayjob #twentysomething #optoutside #toyotanation #toyotafamily #toyotalife #toyotatacoma #yotamafia #letsgoplaces #tacoma4x4 #trdsport #homeiswhereyouparkit #livewashington #olympicpeninsula #offtheclocknurse #nurselife #rnlife #nursesinspirenurses #choosemountainswomen
😮 I reached 20k followers last night! 🎉 The support for my art by people on Instagram has just been incredible and I’m so grateful to you all 💗 I’m excited to see what 2020 has in store for my wee art business now that I’m more able to focus on my business and know I’m not returning to my job. Here are my ‘top 9’ posts for this year (in my opinion greatly influenced by the level of reach permitted by the Instagram algorithm 🤷🏻♀️ ). But it’s nice to look back at all these pieces and remember the enjoyment I had in creating them! Which is your favourite? I’m probably going to be posting on Instagram a bit less over the next couple of weeks as I focus on time with my family, but I’m so looking forward to continuing to sharing more art with you all in the new year! 💙 • • • #jennafergusonart #topnine #topnine2019 #top9of2019 #top9 #20k #20kfollowers #2020goals #oceanartist #oceaninspired #oceanlover #oceanvibes #beachhome #coastaldecor #seascapes #seascapepainting #seascape_lovers #seascapegram #oceanart #scottishartist #ukartist #dontkeepyourdayjob #fluidartist #bluepainting #turquoiseoverdiamonds #turquoiselove #mondayinspiration #wavepainting #blueart #abstractexpressionism
