I was having a conversation with a creative friend about being an entrepreneur & doing different things. It is not an easy journey, but it’s worth it. Sharing tips & more about being a creative entrepreneur on the blog today.☀️-Link in Bio Friends-
The baseball game is on the radio and the kids are running through the sprinkler as the sun fades and my husband is taking apart the swingset they’ve grown out of and I have a hipster candle burning and all the foods we love are in the house and there’s laundry churning in the washing machine and the dryer is empty and ready and there’s nothing much for me to do except eat fresh blueberries and read something nourishing and aren’t my crows feet just gorgeous?
I love you. We can do this. We can do this and I love you and the love and the doing - I think that’s all that really matters over and over again and minute by minute, forever. xo.
Happy Saturday! I hope everyone is enjoying themselves on this beautiful weekend. ❤️
I have things to do but there are SO MANY cool people posting awesome things on Instagram - HOW CAN I NOT LOOK?!? 😍 .
I want to see ALL the products, visit ALL the sights, and taste ALL the yumminess. I wish I could do more than scroll but I'm grateful for what you share. There are so many creative people out there living exciting lives. Nobody's isperfect - we know that. But thank you for sharing the good and the lovely that you see. ☑️ .
The best things in life never come easy! 👌🏻😌

me today to start my Sunday of like this! Have a great day today all! Move and shake your way into the day like these angels!
Casual adventure for the @starbucks
addict with some of my faves.
Sorry lads, this one is for the girls.⠀
😱 OH EM GEE, we can not believe the support we've had from our fellow chicks in business. To say we're stoked is an understatement, especially the Instagram community! ⠀
📻 Through the media, movies, magazines, it's always been drummed into us that we must compete against other females, but mate, what a crock of shit. We have had such overwhelming support from so many females it is actually ridic. ⠀
🙌 Now more than ever we're seeing amazing hubs of women cheering on other women: @businesschicks
to name a few. Not to mention the events and courses and empowerment, it's a little amazing actually.⠀
🙋♀️ We've both always been very strong-willed chicks, opinionated and always ALWAYS speak our minds. Hell, that's why I wanted to do a half Ironman, just to prove that I could do what a lot of men won't! Did it hurt, yes, did I swear the whole time, you damn well bet, did I get a medal? FUCK YEH I DID (actually I got 3 because I did 3!).
✊🏼 So this one is for the chicks out there giving it a red-hot crack, GO CHASE DEM GOALS! For every hater you encounter, there'll be a supporter right behind you, so middle finger the hater and move on! ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
Now go get it girrrrrrrl!

I’m out this weekend for bridesmaid duties including walking in break neck heels and getting chummy with the bartender. 🥂
See you Monday!
Tuesday is the day! Feeling like a countdown to Christmas. ☺️
We’re open 1 more hour! So stop in for a rosé popsicle cocktail!!🥂💕
It feels like it’s been forever since I’ve posted (it’s only been 5 days though) but I’ve been so consumed with just being present in the moment that I’ve forgotten to get on here and do my normal wedding posts. And honestly, I felt guilty taking a break because I always have so much to do but so little time that when I do take a break, I’ve sort of programmed myself to keep working. Leaving my current routine however resets my mind and I think it resets all of us. We don’t think about it as much as we should but clearly, we’re not robots and we need a break in order to function properly with complete mental rest. Just wanted to share this small insight and hopefully this reminder helps you in some way ❤️❤️
I’m super excited to share this piece with you guys! This is the biggest piece I have ever done. 24 x 30 inch canvas 😭 I’m so so so proud of myself. The first attempt was slightly a fail because it was difficult to go over a second coat with acrylic ink. I bought the sharpie brush pen and it worked beautifully! The first and second attempt took me over 7 hours 😭 (how long do these projects take you guys?!). The process: I first sketched the lettering, used the sharpie brush pen for the first coat and went back in to bolden the letters, then I sketched all the monstera leaves, painted the outline, went back in with water color, painted the gold leafs with two layers, cleaned the pencil marks with a little water, soap, and bleach, and finally ending with finishing touches to lettering and leaves. Using small Q-tips really helped with erasing the blemishes! I am in awe of how long this took me and have gained so much respect for all you letterers out there who create these week after week. You’re amazing!! 🌿🙌🏼💰🍻 & of course, congrats to the beautiful parents 👨👩👧
Creating this Squarespace design was lots of fun!⠀
I was excited to help Kirsty get this up and running, we scheduled to finish it all off a few days before I went on leave 👏🏻.⠀

So many of you are so worried about what others think and feel about you. Or maybe you’re down on yourself because something didn’t go according to “plan.”
Because you have thin skin. Yep, I said it.
Today I encourage you to get it together and get over yourself! Get tougher skin. ⠀⠀
The world is filled with haters, trolls, and people who WISH they could be you. THIS is why you get hate comments, because they are really sharing how they feel about themselves.
Toughen up sis. ⠀⠀
So what people are talking about you 🤷🏾♀️
So what people don’t like what you’re doing 🤷🏾♀️
So what it didn’t work out the way you thought it would 🤷🏾♀️
Your only job is to be better than you were yesterday, an hour ago, 10 minutes ago, 1 second ago! ⠀⠀
🗣 GET THICKER SKIN
You won’t be everyone’s cup of tea but guess what? They can drink coffee 🤷🏾♀️
To everyone who is trying to build something: a brand, a business, an empire, a legacy .... I see you and right there with ya. It doesn’t happen over night, there are so many damn mistakes and hick ups... but know that if the plan doesn’t work, change the plan, NOT the goal ❤️
I haven’t posted new products in a while! I’ve been vacationing. But I’m back!!!

Leave your thoughts below I am interested in your opinion on this strategy
SATURDAY SQUAD SPOTLIGHT: Meet Meg (@megladd
) from the San Diego 2.0 Happsters Squad! Get to know her below!
1. What is one thing that brings you happiness? Connection! Feeling connected to the people in my life brings me more joy than anything else. I feel like my best self when I’m with my fiancé, catching up with friends, and supporting my Life Coaching clients.
2. What is your favorite book or podcast and why? I keep coming back to You Are A Badass by Jen Sincero! I pretty much underlined every word in that book! I recommend it clients all the time, because it's a powerful read no matter where you are in your personal growth journey. It’s also hilarious!
3. What keeps you going when things get tough? Oh man, so many things! I’ve learned that building your own business can be quite the emotional rollercoaster, so I have a big toolkit in place to help me out when the going gets tough. Having lots of coaching skills and exercises to work with definitely helps. I have to walk my talk and practice what I preach! Having a support network — including my own life coach, and like-minded friends who believe in me — is key too! But more than anything, I work to maintain a really loving relationship with myself and believe in myself (especially when I’m stepping out and trying something new). I set aside plenty of time for my own physical, mental, and emotional self care!
4. What does a typical day look like for you? When I wake up, I drink warm lemon water, do a thought download and rewire any negative thoughts, and read something inspirational. Then I exercise and get ready for the day. I’ll catch up on emails, do a 1-on-1 client session via phone or Skype, and break for lunch. I’ll support another client, and from there it really varies! Some days I write blog posts, others I go to networking events or do complimentary sessions with new people I’ve met recently. I like the mixture of routine and variety, with the freedom to switch it up when needed! I keep evenings open to connect with my fiancé or friends and wind down for the day. I love going on walks and cooking meals or trying out new local restaurants!

I am Outlining Some things for a New Project I am working on today!
What are you doing this Great Saturday? I want to know!
➡️Where would you be without the support of those close to you??!
Meet my RIDE OR DIE: LiZZiE 👑👯♀️ 💙💓💙💓 @elisabethbott
and I go back to age 3 when we knew nothing about the world or what we would do in it. Throughout the years she has been there for me through every stage...always down to listen, to laugh, to lift me up, to be stupid and spontaneous, and just to be plain FUNNNN 🌈✨🌈✨
It’s people like Lizzie that remind me to enjoy life, do the things that make you PUMPED to do them, to be kind, be unique + genuine, and not to waste a day grumpy or ungrateful ✨ •
Lesson from Liz: Do what makes you feel fulfilled and for gosh sakes bring some good into the world while you’re at it👊🏻
Thankful for my weird, hilarious, super smart and absolutely beautiful bestie...today saying LUH YOU and thank you for all you’ve brought into my life 👯♀️ 💕

Another wonderful sunny day with a lovely salmon salad with rose wine on the terrace... Quite the way to prep for next week 80 - 90 degrees over here with a mountain of work to do 😂
Today!!! Marks the HALF-WAY point on my 1st major client project. I never forget to celebrate; BIG or small it’s imperative that you REWARD your hard work. (📸 just a few power babes)
Going through my files from earlier this year found this typography play for the @wombtree.alchemy

Sweet Spot Style Tip:
Let boredom fuel your creativity.
Today my girl was bored so we pulled out the paints and made some stationary. Now it’s time to write some letters 💕
Summer days can get long for kidos, what fun things do you do together?
