The goal for me everyday is to be BETTER than who I was yesterday ‼️💯🙌🏽
Excited to announce this Friday I’ll be speaking @creativemornings_kc
as part of their series “Audience Takes the Stage”. I will share my creative story and why I give back to the creative community through financial business coaching 🙏🏻 via @creativemornings_kc
This. Is. Cringe. Worthy. (Swipe To See My First Photoshoot Photos)
The photo you see when you swipe was me early 2016... just starting to see momentum in my coaching business. I told the photographer "I want to look older, more mature, trustworthy, smart" I was trying SO HARD to look like someone I wasn't.
When I got the photos back I cried. I don't have the original files but THIS photo and the others were photoshopped by **me** to make my stomach and hips look smaller. I hated everything about them.
The first photo was from my last photoshoot... I told the photographer "I want to show people my newfound confidence. I want to show people my personality. I want them to get to know the real me in these photos."
We edited some basic coloring but no tummies, legs, hips or arms were harmed in the editing of these photos ;)
I’m 10x healthier (emotionally and physically).
I’m 1000x more confident.
I'm 1000x happier being myself.
When you look at me I want you to see yourself... happy, confident, content, excited, ambitious, a bright light in the world, perfectly imperfect, in process, enjoying the journey.
This has been a near 3 year journey. My branding process wasn't picking colors, fonts or any of that. My branding process was learning to embrace who I really am and show up authentically while always working on myself and honoring my own personal values.
I share that in this interview.... When I was asked to be in a branding summit I almost threw up in my mouth a little. But when I read the email and what the interviews were really about I knew I wanted to be a part of it. We talk strategy, quick results, mindset shifts and self acceptance.

When it's Wednesday and your week basically just started, but at the same time it's only half way done. 😲
Anyone else feel way over their head with responsibilities? 🙋
Double Tap if you agree!!!!!💋
▪️WHERE DOES YOUR ASSURANCE COME FROM?▪️ Your salary or your side business... Ultimately, it's God but let's talk about salary income versus side business income.
Don't get me wrong, there's a lot to love about getting and consistent income (salary) once or twice a month (varies based on where you're based). However, your side business can also give you the same "assurance" if not more. ❓⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
Don't get caught up in the corporate race that you forget what you can do on your own.⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
What scares you the most about running your side business full throttle so you can reap the benefits (aka added zeroes) to your bank account?⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
Leave a comment below and let's discuss
I’ve been working on going back through all of my old blog posts, and giving them a face lift. - While it may be pretty time consuming, it is giving older parts of my blog a new life, and I’m super excited about it! - It’s definitely important to continuously work on your blog, and never let anything slip through the cracks! Have you checked on your blog lately?
Why do I place fitness on the same level as spirituality? Simple. I believe in the mind, body, spirit connection. For me true growth only comes from strengthening all of these aspects in my life.
I’d rather be strong than skinny. My goal throughout my own fitness journey has always been about being stronger and better than the girl I was yesterday. It’s not about the number on the scale or on the tag of my pants. It’s not about how I look, but how I feel! I measure my success by how well my clothing fits me or how heavy the weights are that I am lifting. I measure my success by how happy and alive I feel, and how effortlessly I move through my day! I also measure my success on how quickly I can tap into my intuition, and whether or not I had control over my mind and moods. I don’t push my body to its limits to punish it... I push it because I know what it is capable of. In fact, because I keep my body strong, I am pain-free from an awful injury. I conquered the craziest shit my body has ever been through by having an invincible mindset. There’s a reason my nickname (from those who were there when I had my accident) is Bulletproof Brandy. For the most part, I’ve always had a tenacious mindset. Getting through a tough workout requires an unshakable spirit and an unstoppable mindset.
You are capable of doing hard things! If you can convince your mind, you can convince your body. Trust me. I know this to be true.
** 🌟PART 2: HOLDING THE LIGHT: TONE!! 🌟**
💜This week in Time to Shine, we are practising Kyle Gray's process for HOLDING THE LIGHT
🦄The HOLDING THE LIGHT process has three elements to it. All elements help us to EMBRACE SELF LOVE.
🧡Loving ourselves more means shining brighter.
👉The HOLDING THE LIGHT PROCESS also helps us to anticipate miracles instead of disasters
💪The second part of the process of holding the light is TONING.
TONING is about acknowledging the truth of who we are, our soul-selves. It is remembering and reminding ourselves of our Light. It is TUNING UP our vibe!
💜TONING is about embracing our Divine Worth
🦄How can we NOT anticipate miracles, when we ARE a miracle?
🌟Kyle Gray's Mantra: "Wherever Love is present love is stranger. And Love is here, with me"
🦄My mantra: "When I see me, I am free".
🙏INVITATION FOR TONING:
👉Come into a relaxed seated position.
Take a few deep breaths inhaling through the nose, exhaling deeply through the mouth, to let go and come into the present moment. Feel your connection with the Earth beneath your feet.
👉👉Drop inside and connect with your inner vibration. Your inner knowing, the part of you that is infinite, wise and loving.
💜For 5 min repeat to yourself in your minds eye:
"I see you. I love you" "I see you. I love you"
👉Notice any and all emotions, sensations and feelings that may (or may not) come up. Welcome whatever is here or not here.
👉Keep going for all 5 min.
"I see you. I love you" "I see you. I love you"
👉Share below over the next few days what you observed. 👇👇👇👇👇
Some people said I couldn’t replace corporate VP salary with my side hustle. My inner voice said, “Watch me.” And that’s exactly what I did.
I knew what I wanted, and I relentlessly worked to get there.
I stepped out of my comfort zone to find new ways to meet people. I listened to what people wanted in their life and/or business and how I could help serve them and fill a need. Sometimes it was a connection to another business owner, sometimes a referral and sometimes it was a service I was offering. I asked for help when I got stuck and was blessed with people who were willing to help me because someone once helped them. I was clear on my goal and I knew it might take time.
I wasn’t afraid to put in the time for a season to get my life back in the long run. So I ran for 10 years to create a business that I’m grateful to have today.
What are you working toward that feels like a lot of work? Is it a personal goal, something for your loved ones, career? Post in the comments, I’d love to send you some encouragement today!

"Working with Joanna was life changing. I worked with Joanna because I knew that I wanted to unblock myself from money and success but had no idea how. Her intuition and strength as a coach not only helped me push past any fears I had, but I emerged a woman who is more confident, more centered and more excited about what I am doing. She is the total package, from the moment I met her I felt comfortable with her. I would not only recommend Joanna, I would tell you to run as fast as you can to work with this woman."
- Lauren Joyce, Success & Life Coach
I love helping these wonderful women unblock themselves and flourish in their lives!

I'm curious... What's a brand you love that most people don't (or vice versa)?
⚡️ J.K. Rowling came up with the concept of Harry Potter while on a delayed and crowded train from Manchester to London in 1990.⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
Before she was famous, she was just scraping by, writing what would become the most beloved series of all time on napkins. She managed to persevere through bouts of depression, too.⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
Sometimes when we're in the midst of our #journey
, we lose sight of the goal. We question ourselves, seek outside validation for what we do, and wonder if we even have what it takes to do something that feels impossible.⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
I'm glad she had the nerve to come out with one of the most epic stories of all time. Today, let's tell ourselves to BE BRAVE and keep doin' our thing even if it scares us a little.⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀

All Christmas items are 20% off! These are all hand painted and because of that very limited quantities are available 😊 .
To shop my Christmas ornaments, just follow the link in my profile 👆🏻
I most definitely am not an early shopper....I’m a shopping on Christmas Eve kind of girl 😬😬 Major props to all the early shoppers out there! I would love to get better of that for the sake of truly enjoying the holiday season and giving meaningful gifts from the heart. Are you an early shopper or a Christmas Eve shopping kind of girl?
It’s all too easy to talk about your products or services, but what really creates interest is the story behind your business ✨
🙋🏻♀️Who loves getting to "know" people on video as much as I do? .
I have people come up to me all the time when we meet in person and say "I feel like I already KNOW you!" 🤗.
*It's one of the many benefits of adding video to your interactions on social media.
💖💜💚💛Get to know me a little better TODAY in the FABulously Visible FB Group (join info is in my bio) and I'll see you at 12:30pm PST.👆
