Last week I was in California, enjoying a meditation retreat. @evolvingoutloud.
It’s was an emotional week. I left my inner wounded child at the beach in Monterey California. So, for that reason, I will not go back. It feels like a relief. I have less baggage to carry for the rest of my life. Will I go back on a meditation retreat, hmmmmmm, keep following me, because I will write a blog and Instagram post about it.
I was thinking I would be without internet for the whole week, so I decided to take a break from
posting on my feed!! Which was nice. But, little REBEL I am, I did not hand in my phone.😜 I do not always play by the rules. And honestly, I discovered, there is no right way or wrong
way in trying to be mindful.
I had my little routine of eating lunch by myself, with a glass of wine, and having dinner in my room, of course with a glass of wine (or 2). I just needed to find my own space after the energy of all the people around me. I love to be with people, but...I love to be with myself as well.
As much as I loved my experience, I love to be reunited with my husband Gert, 2 boys Styn and Mats, and of course our doggies, Cookie and Hazel! I realize that I am so fortunate with what I have, and that is not money related, but purely the connection I have with my husband of 22 years, and the 2 boys we have together. There is nothing better and richer to me than having that family connection and bond. And living on a farm in just pure nature with the Rockies around the corner makes it even better. (I was not always in that alignment with nature and our farm though, but now I am proud of where I live).
Back to my other family, the girls in my family.
Sheltie doggie Cookie is a bit shy of pictures, I think she was maybe not treated as well as a puppy, so we just give her the space she needs. But OMG Hazel.
Hazel is our social butterfly, she immediately steels your heart. She has grown from puppy into this amazingly cute family member.
Cookie, Hazel and I are the only girls in the house, “Girl Power”.💪
Anyhow, I am in the middle of grocery shopping, laundry, cleaning, so the takeaways from the retreat will come! Stay tuned❤️
I always believed in karma, that good things come to good people and today I was proven right once again🙌 I got really good news about a dear friend today and wish her lot's of success on her new journey, cause she deserves it😍 .
I signed up to be a coach simply because my life had been completely transformed in a way I never thought possible by a nutrition program this company offered and I wanted to be able to share that transformation opportunity with others.
Less than a year later, I’ve found even bigger and greater and such long-lasting transformations that all came with being a coach. .
So thankful that this company sets busy, ordinary people up for success - success in their lifestyles and success in their businesses. NO ONE has to start from scratch. Everyone supports one another, and we’re provided with LIMITLESS resources for how to succeed and grow and continue transforming ourselves and helping others do the same.
I am so dang honored, so dang blessed, so dang grateful. I get emotional when I think of how far I’ve come in just one single year.
Curious about my journey? Talk to me. I’d love to share it with you. 💖
🎬 In other opener news, MGM’s The Hustle with an okay $3.956 million gross. The Anne Hathaway/Rebel Wilson con woman comedy is a remake of Dirty Rotten Scoundrels. It is another example of MGM’s current drive to remake or revamp its existing library. A likely $13.9 million opening won’t be a blowout, but it’ll be close enough to the $14.7 million debut of Eugenio Derbez and Anna Faris’ Overboard remake last year. Despite poor reviews and little buzz, it could still play to adult women over the next month. Similar legs to Overboard would give it a $46 million domestic finish. In the proverbial olden days, you remade a movie that was either not well-received or flew under the radar in the hopes that you could get it right the second time or pitch the film as a theatrical event unto itself.
📽 If you were mining Sam Peckinpah's catalog, you remade The Getaway precisely because it wasn’t among his classics. Nowadays, you remake The Wild Bunch precisely because it is an untouchable classic and ride out the Internet’s collective outrage, knowing that folks will see it anyway. We’ll all complain about Child’s Play, but we’ll still see it. But MGM’s The Hustle wasn’t sold as a remake of a 31-year-old Michael Caine/Steve Martin comedy. It was a comic vehicle for Anne Hathaway and Rebel Wilson. The folks who pushed Overboard to $50 million domestic and $90 million worldwide on a $12 million budget were going for the high concept and the Derbez/Faris combo, not the IP. Conversely, Death Wish barely cracked $34m on a $30m budget. Because, yes, in 2019, a major studio comedy starring two women as con artists sadly still qualifies as a minor event movie.
Do you have a business?
No, I mean a forreal business. .
Not just a social media page you created.
Not just a website you hope people will magically find.
Not just a business card.
Not just an idea you created and hoping money will fall out of the sky… but an actual business. .
A money-making system. Something that you're offering AND a process you have in place to get your perfect-fit people to do business with you.
I see this rookie mistake time and time again in my line of work. People who reach out to get content created for them for their website for example and hoping that will be their magical end-all-be-all solution, but that's not true.
You still need a business.
You still need to be offering something.
And you still need a process in place to get your ideal clients to do business with you from start to finish.
Listen, my heart is to help you win.
You have to establish your business if you want to stay in business. To do that, #1 Get clear about your brand identity. Who are you? What do you do? And what's your place in this world? #2 Get clear about what you're offering. How will your business make money? Who is it for? How will it help? #3 Get clear about your sales process. If someone is interested, how can they get started? How does it work? What are the steps?
I know this may sound simple, but you'd be surprised by how many people are skipping this part.
Look - my heart is to help you win. Yes, I can help you create content that converts, but if you've been working in your business and haven't figured out this part yet - stop. Think through this part first, then you'll be ready to start making some real magic.
You've got this!

I have never met a person who said they do not want to be successful.
Also, I have never met a person in life who said I am planning to fail that's all I want in life.
Then that lead me to a question.
If we are not planning to fail in life then why we are not successful in every area of our lives?
1. I will say, one of the reason to that is fear. Fear of the unknown.
2. Most people don't believe they deserve it.
3. A lot of people not willing to make the sacrifice it require.
They say “expect the unexpected”.
When I started my career as a High Performance Coach about a decade ago, I would have never guessed that the direct client interaction I’d have would be so meaningful.
I love life coaching and helping others reach their goals, but it’s awesome surprises like seeing others succeed that keep me on my toes!
Have you experienced something delightfully unexpected?

Let this message come in loud and clear today: The only person you need to try and keep up with is YOU! 🗣 🗣
So stop the comparison because, dear friend, the truth is you are NEVER going to be that girl on Instagram. You're NEVER going be that girl on the podcast. You're NEVER going to be that girl in the blog post you read yesterday.
Instead, just be YOU. And trust me, nothing is more magical than a woman who is completely and unapologetically herself.
If you're struggling with showing up authentically online, perhaps one of our social media packages are for you. We provide you with all the tools and training you need to show up authentically while keeping your accounts running smoothly when you don't have the time.

I have been wanting to fix the back brakes on a vehicle of ours for a long time, and kept delaying it. Then I recognized it will never be done if I keep procrastinating.
The truth is the reason we have so little at times, or we don't achieve much, or maybe have not had the success God desires for us is because we procrastinate too much. Let go of your fears, doubts, insecurities, or anything preventing you from achieving more and DO something!
Being the positive one- some wont understand.
You’ll have those who will shrug you off, think you’re naive and silly.
I can not control what others do with the medicine I provide to them. It’s not my responsibility to carry their baggage.
I am here to share my gift of mindset magic and it’s not up to me what others do with my gift- the responsibility is all on them.
We can’t fix anyone.
We can only work on ourselves and be of service the way we’re being Divinely Guided to.
Big things happen to those who let go of control of the outcome and ride the waves.
