Because let's face it... If you're not making money, your business doesn't make sense.
(And how to make money like the RICH even if you’re kinda broke right now)
But, just because you’re not on the fast track to becoming the next Oprah, doesn’t mean you can’t steal some of her strategies.
There are so many important money lessons you can learn from the rich – lessons that can get you a one-way ticket OUT of broke central.
So, let’s get right into it. We’re talking four money tips you can put into practice TODAY to make money like the rich.
1. Rich people are disciplined
On one hand, people THINK they just don’t make enough money. They’re always praying for more money, praying for a raise, when really they need to pray for BETTER TOOLS & STRATEGIES to manage their money.
To be honest with you friend, you can’t really...
Listen up friends… It's time for some hard truths.
It doesn’t matter if you’re working 18 hours a day in your business.
It doesn’t matter how much you’ve sacrificed.
It doesn’t matter how many all-nighters you’ve pulled.
None of it matters if your money habits suck.
I’m not gonna sugar coat it. I’m here to tell you how it is: You’re in business to make money.
Yes, we wanna do amazing things for our customers. Yes, we love the ART and the CREATION. But none of that means sh*t if you aren’t making money.
Your #1 responsibility as a business owner is to MAKE MONEY. Period.
And that’s what we’re gonna talk about today. So grab a pen, take some notes, and keep on reading!
If any of these money habits show up in your business, you’re slowly killing the success of yourself (and your business,) sis.
Let’s dive in…These are the Money...
We're willing to do almost anything to maximize our productivity, perform at our best, and crush our career goals. But in the pursuit of getting ahead, we lose sight of what matters most. We're constantly trying to make it to the next big thing, and sometimes we miss out on the very things that could have made us happier and fulfilled. All work and no play will not only lead to burn-out, but it will also lead to a life that's out of balance. Sometimes the very thing you need is LESS! While It might seem counterproductive, taking on fewer orders and giving up perfectionism is actually key to healthy work-life balance.
Everyone's definition of work-life balance differs, but finding a healthy separation between work and life allows you to feel refreshed and productive - in turn, allowing you to pursue your business goals further. If you’re looking to find or maintain more balance, look no further. Check out these 7 tips to help you find more work-life balance.
Let’s be honest… Weight is a big deal for most women. But we really don't talk about it OPENLY much, do we? Well, I wanna share a few things I’ll be focusing on over the next month or so because I think it might inspire YOU to also take action!
Eddie and I used to be BODYBUILDERS! We won 1st place in 2 competitions, and then decided we were done with it.
One because we went an ENTIRE YEAR with NO SUGAR! And truthfully, we fell out of love with that way-too-over-the-top “HEALTHY” lifestyle. Yet 7 years later, we’re jumping back in! *Not into bodybuilding, but we both really wanna dedicate some time to get into better shape.
So, here’s our commitment: During the month of April, Eddie and I are committing to lose 10 lbs. Now I know it’s waaay easier for men, so LORD PRAY FOR ME! But I thought I’d invite you to come along with us!

To say things have been chaotic in the Copeland household is an understatement.
We could easily complain, break down, seek out empathy from others, and play the victim card but we just aren’t those people.
Instead, we’ve held it together (for the most part), have come together as a family, and are pushing through one day at a time.
We’ll dive into all the details in this week’s PUSH podcast episode (you won’t wanna miss this)!
Here’s a breakdown of what Eddie and I discussed…
The one thing that comes to mind as we deal with all this craziness is intention.
We’ve realized after 40 years that when you show up in life with intention and purpose, things just have a way of working...
I want to be clear that we don't think anyone's an idiot. We're just not those types of people. So if you clicked on this blog post to hear some, then friend, I’m sorry, this isn’t the blog for you.
If you know anything about us from Instagram, Facebook, in real life or even if you've been listening to the push podcast for a while, you know that our entire segment on what in the world is literally our way of being curious about dumb shit that people do, that we think might be kind of dumb or odd. But it's still us showing up in a way that's curious!
That’s really what this episode of the PUSH Podcast stemmed from; curiosity around how people act and communicate.
So, I wanna ask: do you solely hang out with people who have similar beliefs to you? It’s tempting to always surround yourself with people who have the same personality type as you. You fire each other up, you push the other to make decisions and take actions you would normally...
I think we can all agree that life isn’t in any way shape or form easy. In fact it’s the exact opposite. Life is freaking HARD. No one gives you a manual for it and you just kinda have to wing it as you go. But that’s also the beauty in life.
So the question is, “what do you do when life is just NOT going your way?”
Do you crumble at the thought of getting out of bed in the morning? Do you fake your way through the bullshit? Do you power through and trust that everything will work out in the end?
Everyone copes with obstacles and challenges differently but what we’ve found is that ignoring and hiding from our problems will only lead us to breaking down; physically and mentally.
Would you agree?
Life is full of challenges and sometimes it doesn’t matter how hard we try; things just feel like they’re piling on top of us. We’ve definitely been there and it can also feel really lonely.
Reading the title of this blog, you either are all about it because you wanna learn tips on how to be more confident or you're curious why we’re talking about Kayne West.
So here’s the tea…
I’m personally not a fan of Kayne West but I am curious about people and their behaviors and the way they operate so when we recently watched the new Kayne West documentary on Netflix, called, “Jeen Yuhs,” we immediately knew we had to talk about it on the podcast!
One reason is because a lot of people are polarized by Kayne. They either think he’s narcissistic, egotistical, or cocky; while others think he’s literally a GENIUS. The second reason is because after watching his documentary, which he started 20 years ago before he was even a rapper, we were mind-blown by the unprecedented amount of self-confidence he had; so much so that we were inspired to pull 10 tips to help you BUILD more confidence.
It’s been awhile since we did a relationship/marriage topic on the podcast so in honor of Valentine’s Day just passing, we wanted to talk a little bit about relationships; specifically some of the most uncomfortable but necessary conversations you need to be having in your relationships.
Here’s a breakdown of what Eddie and I discussed:
For any relationship to be successful, there are certain conversations that you need to discuss with the other person in order to 1. Make sure you’re BOTH on the same page and 2. Figure out if you are even compatible. These conversations ensure that you have healthy communication and are discussing...
