274: WHY BOUNDARIES ARE SO IMPORTANT

Hi! Happy Friday!

Today I am talking about boundaries. Why you need them set up properly and why they are so important for you to be clear about. With your friends, family, in business, and especially on your entrepreneurship journey. This is a topic I have been wanting to talk about for quite some time, and happy I am getting into it with you today.

I will be sharing my key strategies when it comes to having boundaries in all aspects of your life. I also have a huge announcement that I have yet to share with anyone online. Only a few of my close friends know, and this has been years in the making. I mean, like a decade!

Also, there are some epic Labor Day Sale goodies for you in this episode, so you will not want to miss out.

I cannot wait to share all of this with you today and if you loved this episode, I would love for you to let me know by leaving me a review on the platform you are listening on. It would truly mean the world.

Wishing you a happy, healthy, positive, and productive day!

Maybe a profitable side hustle is something you’re trying to make happen? I’ve got you covered on that too!

Wishing you a happy, healthy, positive, and productive day!

HOW CAN YOU GROW YOUR BUSINESS TODAY?

Over the last few years I have been coaching entrepreneurs, business owners as well as their teams. Service, Sales and Social Media are the key to building your brand and one that my own business thrives off of.

Six months after my coaching programs began I incorporated LinkedIn trainings as that has been one of my personal tools and keys to my success. Continuoulsly creating new relationships is one of my favorite ways to network online. An updated and informative profile can go a very long way. Trust me! Learning how to engage and nourish new relationships is very important and one that I am extremely passionate about.

Twelve months later I found out I had an autoimmune disease that could potentially leave me with zero vision. It was then that I scratched the book I had been working on for three years and began my rearch on podcasting.

I am a self taught woman. I learned everything I needed to know and soon after (July 2017) I launched The Happy Workaholic Podcast. A Show about Business, LinkedIn and Life with an Autoimmune Disease!

I can 100% assure you that I have not looked back since. Podcasting has become such a true passion for me now. It allows me to share my message to over ten countries every week. A platform that I never imagined being on. One that has done wonders for my brand. This is why I created Your Podcast Production. A coaching and producing program that will allow you to take your business and brand message to the next level.

Every morning I wake up extremely grateful that I am able to help others and in a way that I have personally created. A way that will motivate and inspire others to do more in their business. Work in more productive and “happier” ways.

I am able to fill a few more spots in July if you or someone you know are in need of coaching (see below). Please do not hesitate to reach out! I would love to help you and your brand get to that next level that you deserve!

HOW TO BE WELL

Today I wanted to share a few things that you really should do to just BE WELL! These tips are great for your overall health and well being. Don’t be overwhelmed if you haven’t done any since last year just make it a priority to get them done throughout the month. The first step is making a list…

When was the last time you went to the dentist or your primary doctor? If it’s been a while make a phone call and schedule an appointment. It really is that simple! Everyone is so busy and working these days that we sometimes forget to make the time to take care of ourselves.

Well my friend now is the time…

Follow up with any doctors that you have been putting off. I am telling you this as it has become my full time job for over a year now since learning over my NMO diagnosis.

Do you know how many patients your doctor will see in a week? I doubt it! You are just another name on a list. It is YOUR JOB to follow up if you want answers. If you are not sure how to do so email me and I will give you a step by step. I am telling you I am a PRO at this sh*t! Sorry for the swears but it is necessary. I feel like I am saving my own life every day.

YOU must be your own advocate and be proactive in any and all things medical. Always, ALWAYS get a second opinion if you are looking for answers regarding a specific medical issue you happen to be going through. And maybe even a third opinion. Don’t be shy or feel bad! This is your life we are talking about. You only have one to live so you must make the best choices in these matters. Again, I am telling you all of this from experience…

If you would like to learn more about my health journey and how to be proactive click here…

SELF CARE. Do you partake? If not, make the time. Even if it is ten minutes. Meditate, listen to some relaxing music, journal, listen to a podcast or cook a delicious meal. What ever your body is craving. Mind, body and soul. Just check the hell out! It is so important to do this every day or every other day even if it’s for five minutes. It will completely change the mood you were in. When you have more time like on a Saturday or Sunday treat yourself to a spa day. Either at a new hotel or at home. I am not going to lie. I love my DIY spa days. I put on a face and hair mask, sit in a bubble bath and just zone out. At times I bring a book or even my tablet to catch up on my shows. I know seriously? Yes. I am that girl! However, don’t knock it until you try it. Having a tv in the bathroom is amazing. Why do you think they are in your hotel bathrooms? Hello? lol

Lastly, I want to share something with you that has really been helping me through my recent health diagnosis. That is doTERRA Essential Oils. I tried them once and I was sold. I just love the fact that they can help you from the inside out. You can use them topically for your body and your home as well. Adding them in all my healthy juices and meals I create just adds so many additional health benefits. This info is just a tiny bit of what the oils can do for you and your overall well being.

I believe so much in this product that I have now become a doTERRA Wellness Advocate. What that means is that you can order all your doTERRA Essential Oils through my website which you can find right here.

As always, sharing is caring. If you have a friend that you feel could benefit from today’s blog post or anything else on my site I would love it if you could share it with them!

Please leave me a comment below to let me know what you do to “be well” and take care of yourself or maybe how you would like to change.

Wishing you a wonderful Day!

One more thing…

Today on #GivingTuesday, Facebook and the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation Discovery Center will be matching up to $2 million of funds raised for US nonprofits through Facebook’s charitable giving tools. I would truly appreciate it if you would create an NMO fundraiser on Facebook or hit the “Donate” button on The Guthy-Jackson Charitable Foundation’s Facebook page. Neuromyelitis Optica is the autoimmune disease that I have and that there is no cure for. A disease where getting a chemo treatment twice a year for the rest of my life is the only way to prevent a relapse. You can learn more about NMO here…

Donations can be matched up to $50,000 per nonprofit, with a max of $1,000 per fundraiser or donate button, until the $2 million in matching funds run out. And, Facebook is waiving all fees for donations to nonprofits on #GivingTuesday. Don’t miss out on this incredible fundraising opportunity to double your donations! #GiveTueNMO

Thanks for letting me share this today…

 

 

 

 

BACK TO BASICS

I don’t know about you but I am so ready for the Fall like weather, aka “sweater weather” as I like to call it and of course everything Pumpkin Spice! I mean EVERYTHING!

It’s been a little bit over a year that I have been dealing with some serious health issues but that my friends cannot and will not stop me in what I want or have plans to do in the future.

If anything; going through 12 months of being chronically ill and now getting chemo every week has taught me what to hold on to, what to let go of and what to fight like hell for!

That being said I have a VIP Newsletter going out late Wednesday (8-23-17) which will explain a lot more in detail there so if you would like to get on that list click here!

I promise I don’t spam you and you get lovely emails from yours truly delivered to your inbox every Wednesday and you can always unsubscribe at anytime and I won’t be upset! I just like to share a lot more with my subscribers as it’s a bit more personal…

So click right here if you would like to receive the first one this week!

In the meantime…

Have you listened to The Happy Workaholic Podcast yet? If not, you can download on iTunes right here or on Android and Google Play here. Don’t forget to leave me a review so I know that you were there!

And after you listen to any episode you can now join us in the After Show which takes place in The Happy Workaholic Podcast Facebook Group! Click here to join in the conversations today…

Lastly, take a look around on the website as I just made a bunch of changes. Cleaning and organizing always feels so good! Even online! Especially after a few days off my computer. It felt really good to get back to the basics. Opening my planner, scheduling podcasts interviews, writing posts, making calls and just living my life!

BEFORE YOU FORGET…

How many times have you heard this? I know for me I am constantly telling/reminding myself this…

Before you forget write this down. Before you forget call this person. Before you forget put this in notes. Etc. etc.

If you follow me on any of my social media pages you may have noticed that I have been silent over the last week and I am here to fill you all in before “I” forget. PS Forgetting is becoming a fun part of the lovely little disease I have called NMO so thank god for “notes” on my iPhone. I could not survive without that! Or my wall and cork boards full of post-it notes of course!

Here is what I posted on Instagram yesterday…

I have been waiting to hear about my next NMO (Neuromyelitis Optica) Treatment so for my own sanity I chose to stay silent until everything was confirmed. That by the way is so hard considering almost everything I do is online! I also needed time to decide if I would share. Today I made the decision that I WILL share because I know it will keep me stronger knowing that I am able to help just one other person by being vocal and sharing my own personal journey. I started the Just For Us Community on Facebook to help as many as I can and create a positive community for anyone going through anything health related as well as heartache or just in need of some happiness! So my goal is to stay strong for everyone as well as myself when I post in the group!

So here are the deets of my next adventure…

The treatment for my NMO Autoimmune Disease will be a Chemo. As of today it will start next week and once a week for the next four weeks. And after that once a month for maintenance. And I also get to have a port installed in my body! Fun times! Obviously, this could all change depending on how my body reacts.

I will be sharing my updates on all the below pages so please feel free to click those links to follow if you are in need of some daily inspo, laughter or just want to come along for the ride. As “they” say, laughter is the best medicine. And that is one I will surely take as there are no side affects for once! lol.

I want to be (and stay) strong for anyone else that may be going through this or may have to in the future. So that’s the short version. I hope I can continue to keep you motivated in your own journey whether personal or professional by sharing my own set of stories that is up next. And prove that there is always hope and healing ahead…

If you want to know who or what keeps me in check you can check out my IG Stories posted earlier today.

I’ve been up since 5am! New Month. New Goals right?

One more thing before you forget…

ANYTHING IS POSSIBLE with the right mindset and positive attitude.

One more thing before “I” forget…

To make the I Chose This Life Series THE BEST I changed the launch date to Wednesday 9-6-17 which you can read about right here…

Why did I do this? To be 100% honest I am a perfectionist. And I have no idea how I am going to react to this month of chemo or how my voice will sound, so to push it back made the best sense for everyone involved. My Lady Bosses I’m interviewing as well as my listeners!

As always thanks for reading and sharing…

Until next time…

I CHOSE THIS LIFE SERIES

Updated 7/31/17…

I Chose This Life Series will launch on Wednesday 9/6/17!

Whenever I have an idea I immediately write it down in one of my “famous” notebooks. Then when I decide it is time to give it life I start my post-it/cork board process. If you follow me on Instagram and Stories then you know what I am talking about. I guess you could say it is my version of a “Story Board”. You know the white boards with the photos on them you used to see when MTV actually played music videos? And they aired the “Making of the Video” show. Just like that!

My cork boards are the special place for me to put together the puzzle pieces that I have floating around in my head. I’m a very visual person so being able to write it down and push pin it up really helps me in the creative process. And I’m so OCD, so the fact that my push pins can be moved around makes the process completely stress-free! lol.

So a few months ago I began that process for the I Chose This Life Series. I knew when I launched The Happy Workaholic Podcast that I wanted to use it as a platform for other Entrepreneurs like myself to share their stories. After all…the show is about Business, Luxury Travel and Life! So it’s a perfect fit and made sense!

My guests will share the raw, real and relateable deal. The path they took to get them to where they are today. The milestones, the mishaps and everything in between. Everyone has a unique story and I want the show to share these stories for others to hear and be inspired and motivated by them. I want my listeners to know that no matter what the situation everything happens for a reason. And there is no need for you to ever give up on a dream. We all go through life with bumps in the road. And it makes us who we are today! Trust me on this! It’s just a different scenario for everyone. And you will learn that when listening to this amazing series…

I CHOSE THIS LIFE SERIES. WHAT IS IT?

I CHOSE THIS LIFE SERIES
