5 THINGS I LEARNED FROM YOU THIS WEEK!

Oct 06, 2020

These past few weeks have been crazy to say the least. A lot of life changing shit has happened including closing my business of 10 years to help other entrepreneurs build their dream businesses! 

 

Let me reassure you this isn’t a sad thing. I’m so EXCITED for this next chapter of my life and can’t wait to fully commit to this new business. 

 

If you’ve been following me recently then you know The Cake Mamas had a huge garage sale to liquidate all our equipment and tons of fellow bakers and supporters came out which was amazing but after interacting and observing some of them I’ve noticed some important lessons that I want to share.

KNOWING YOUR WORTH & HOW TO NEGOTIATE YOUR VALUE!

Sep 29, 2020

You are WORTH so much more SIS!! 

 

Since being a coach, being a mother of three daughters, and employing tons of young females during my time as a business owner I’ve seen so many women struggle with knowing their worth and being able to articulate it to others. 

 

Not only when it comes to relationships but also when it comes to being in the workforce. 

 

Here’s a breakdown of what Eddie and I discussed…

 

  • Taking responsibility and not outsourcing it (12:01)
  • What are you doing to be in practice of something that will make you better (15:01)

To be honest, life for us has been really difficult over these past couple of months and we’ve hit our breaking point.

WHAT IF YOU’RE WRONG? WHEN YOUR TRUTHS ARE LIES!

Sep 08, 2020

“You are who you choose to be” - anonymous 

The idea of “truth” is a delicate thing. To you “truth” may mean one thing and for me it may mean something completely different. 

As individuals we take on things that may ultimately mean something different for us than they would for someone else. It’s a belief system that's unique to us. Whereas, facts, are solid proof. There’s physical data, video, statistics, etc. So why are we talking about truth versus facts? 

Because the truths we choose to believe determine so many crucial aspects of our lives. From parenting, to politics, to goals; the truths we believe are impacting our day to day life. 

However, the problem is when we have to make excuses for “our truth” or “our beliefs” as individuals because we are seeking validation for the actual truth. 

Here’s a breakdown of what Eddie and I discussed…

Time, Quality, Or Money? Which Do You Spend More Of?

Sep 01, 2020

Let’s talk about currency! 

I truly believe there are three types of currency in our lives! 

  1. Time
  2. Quality 
  3. Money!!! 

Sure we all value money. When we grow up we turn our wild “wanna be” dreams into what “dreams” will make us the most money. Am I right to think this? 

Look at this way…

When we ask kids what they want to be when they grow up they always say something crazy like a superhero. And then when reality hits them and they start to grow up, their dreams start to become more realistic. 

But when we’re younger we don’t think about the other types of currency cause we’re so programmed to think about the big picture; MONEY! 

So we’re here to offer a different perspective. What if we eliminate money from the picture and instead we choose to value time and quality!

Here’s a breakdown of what Eddie and I discussed…

  • Why time is important for us because you can never get it...

Showing Up When Your Backs Against The Wall!

Aug 25, 2020

One of our greatest enemies in life is time. People always complain that we never have “enough” time. Or we wait for the “perfect” time? But really we do have enough time, we just don’t use it wisely enough and to be honest, there is no such thing as a “perfect” time; you just have to decide when. 

 

To be blunt, time isn’t always on your side. Which means that you just have to roll with it and do it anyway. Hence, showing up when your back is against the wall! Just show up and show out. 

 

We got into this idea and more in this week’s episode of the PUSH Podcast! 

 

Here’s a breakdown of what Eddie and I discussed… 

  • Decision making when you are under pressure (08:15)
  • Intentionally putting your back against the wall when time is not on your side (15:22)
  • Once you make a decision, keep moving (16:54)
  • Shifting your perspective; you might be magnifying the problem (19:25)
  • Perfection...

DISCIPLINE and WILLPOWER- Why You Might Suck At Both!

Aug 18, 2020

When was the last time you broke a commitment? 

I’ll tell you, mine was a few days ago. 

 

If you follow me on social media then you know that at the beginning of this month I started a 30-day Yoga challenge. Not because I wanted to lose weight or become healthier (although those are HUGE pluses). I did it because I wanted to show up for myself and prove that I could stay committed to something not because I had to but because I was determined to show myself some self-love and build confidence. 

 

I wasn’t angry with myself that I broke that commitment. I wasn’t disappointed either. Instead, I was more eager to get back on track and finish out the challenge. 

 

As humans, specifically women, we get so down on ourselves whenever we “break” a commitment. It cruses our self-esteem and we immediately beat ourselves up to the point where we’re practicing negative self-talk. 

 

I’m here to tell you...

Cut Your Losses

Aug 04, 2020

Have you ever just held onto something for so long that you don’t see anyway you can get rid of it now because you’ve had it for so long? 

 

Well that was Eddie and I over this past weekend and we did it...

We FINALLY decided to cut our losses and get rid of our “must haves” that we haven’t touched in YEARS! 

 

For Eddie that would be his DVD/BluRay collection and for me, it’s my HUNDREDS of CD’s. 

Although Eddie had more trouble letting go than I did, it’s hard to let go of something that had so much VALUE to you in another season of your life. 

 

Those valuables become almost a part of you and when you let them go, you’re releasing that part of who you used to be. For many of us, it’s difficult to let go and release that part of ourselves. 

 

Here’s a breakdown of what Eddie and I discussed… 

  • Selling items from our storage unit in a garage sale (03:59)
  • How...
