Female empowerment

I Didn't Know What I Was Missing

I made a discovery recently.

This discovery has to do with something I had no idea I was even missing out on.

Something I assumed I didn't really need in my life.

Something that never really came naturally to me.

The discovery was...

Friendships with other women are empowering as fuck!

You'd never know from this photo that we had just met that night, because we became instant besties! Sarah, Stephanie, Ana and Morgan - you ladies are amazing!

You may be wondering why I said I didn't think I needed these friendships in my life, or how they never really came naturally to me.

The reason why I didn't think I needed friendships with other women is simply because I've never really had a strong core group of women in my life (outside of my amazing family) that were always supportive and encouraging, while still being honest and authentic.

So to me, it was just my norm to only have one or two awesome friends, without thinking much of it.

The reason why it never really came naturally to me is because I've always been "one of the boys". 

I've always gotten along better with the guys - but here's the kicker...

It's not because I like guy friends better than girl friends.

It's because I have zero tolerance for bullshit, bitchiness and mood swings.

And guys really don't embody those qualities often, so I found myself enjoying the ease of their friendships much more than than back-stabbing high school BS that girls do to each other.

That was, until I realized I had the ability to surround myself with women who are like-minded.

Women who aren't catty.

Women who don't talk shit.

Women who empower you.

Women who inspire you.

Women who are just good fucking people to be around.

I didn't know what I was missing.

But now I'm experiencing friendships with so many amazing women, who are doing incredible things, and wanting the best for themselves - while also wanting the best for me too!

I've met women who come from a place of understanding that we can ALL live our ideal lives, because we know there is enough abundance for everyone.

Having friendships with women who are kind-hearted, soul-centered people is such a game changer!

Their feminine energy is a completely positive experience for me now, and has replaced my previous thinking that friendships with women are mostly draining drama.

They've inspired me to get in touch with my own feminine energy, which has opened up a whole new realm of myself that I barely even knew existed, haha.

And - despite the fact that I'll always (proudly) be a little rough around the edges - I can finally say that I enjoy being one of the girls, instead of one of the guys.

The 3 Ways Success of Others Means Success for You

I'm not gonna lie. This morning I really wanted to sleep in.

I wanted to pull the covers over my head, stay nice and warm and cozy in bed, and just fall back into dream land.

But then a vision of my friend and colleague, Christina Popovic, came into my head.

She's just been nominated for an award that has a cash prize of $10,000.

And she was nominated for this award as recognition for all her hard work and effort as a Life, Health and Mindset Coach - how badass it that?!

So as I thought of her this morning, it inspired me to get my ass out of bed and make full use of today - to kick ass in my business and help change lives for the better - including my own!

Which brings us to the first way the success of others can mean success for you...

1. Motivation

All too often we see someone else experiencing success and our immediate emotion is jealousy.

But what if we simply chose to be motivated instead?

What if instead of thinking a negative thought of "it should be ME being successful", we used it as an opportunity to get curious about how they reached their success?

Can you ask them what's working for them directly?

Can you research their background story and read about their success story?

Can you check out their social media accounts and take note of how they market themselves?

Getting motivated opens up so many doors for your own success.
 

2. Hire them as your mentor

When you see someone else doing what you want to do, it only makes sense to see if you're able to work with them.

They're clearly doing something right, if they're experiencing success.

This is certainly the case when I chose to hire Mandy Perry as my mentor.

Mandy has taken herself and her family from being on food stamps just two years ago, to now owning a successful six-figure business. How friggin' inspiring is THAT?!

So, because I know the importance of having a coach, I started following her on social media, and paying more attention to what she was saying.

It became a factor of "know, like, and trust" - you want your audience to know who you are and what you're about, you want them to like you, and you want them to trust you.

Mandy is all these things to me - so I hired her as my mentor!
 

3. Celebrating Others Creates High Vibe Attraction

When you're in the space of truly celebrating the success of others, it helps bring those positive high vibes back around your way.

Celebration mode can look like anything from a silly impromptu dance party to just writing a note to that person to let them know how proud you are of them.

Taking time to truly reflect on the feeling of gratitude to know someone who is experiencing success, can ultimately contribute to bringing that success around to you too!

So the next time you feel jealousy creeping up when you hear about someone earning success, stop and think about these three ways their success could make a positive impact on your life as well.

Because the world could use more celebrations.

So celebrate your sisters.

And soon enough, we'll be celebrating YOU!

Choose Freedom Over Fear

But what if other people think I'm dumb?

But what if I don't make money right away?

But what if I fail?

These are all super common thoughts that people have when they're thinking about transitioning from being an employee to being an entrepreneur.

It's so easy to get caught up in the worst case scenarios that we play over and over in our head.

But what if taking a leap of faith and investing in yourself actually created your BEST case scenario?

This is the sign you've been looking for.

If you knew you couldn't fail, would you do it?

Well here's the good news: You can choose to keep working on your goal UNTIL it becomes your reality.

It doesn't happen overnight. 

And honestly, it wouldn't be as exciting if it did.

Part of the fun is the adventure to get there.

Then you can sit back, take a look at your life, and say "holy shit - I DID IT!"

What would that LOOK like for you?

What would that FEEL like for you?

No really.

Think about it.

You can even journal about it.

How would your life look if you were actually creating the freedom you desire.

How would you feel waking up every day knowing YOU were in control.

I know - it's crazy to think about, because you've mostly just been focusing on the worst case scenario.

But your best case scenario CAN be your reality.

In fact, I'm happy to offer you a free 45 minute Breakthrough Strategy Call, where you'll find out how to:

  • Get super fucking CLEAR on what you want - like, what you ACTUALLY want
  • Create a plan you're PASSIONATE about - light that fire under your ass
  • Take MASSIVE action to make it happen for yourself - and don't worry, I'll support you along the way

You don't have to be chained to your corporate desk forever.

You don't have to live by society's cookie-cutter rules.

Enough bullshit mindset - you're more than capable of making this happen.

Enough just talking about doing it - actually DO it.

Enough waiting until the timing is perfect - there's no such thing.

You CAN do this.

You WILL do this.

You ARE doing this.

Because you deserve to be happy.

And only YOU can do that for yourself.

Perfectly Imperfect

Perfectly Imperfect.jpg

Hi, my name is Amanda and I'm a perfectionist.

Well, a recovering perfectionist, really. 

And believe it or not, the recovery began when I started my own coaching business.

It didn't take long before I realized that my business is not a place for perfectionism.

When I tried to make everything perfect, it stressed me out.

It felt overwhelming.

I felt anxious.

When I tried to make everything perfect, the fun was sucked out of it.

So I decided to say "fuck it" (a reoccurring theme, you may have noticed), and started to share messages that came from the heart, rather than content that was polished and professional.

And guess what happened?

You love it!

You relate to me more.

You know I understand what you're going through.

You trust me, because I've been there too.

All you need is someone a couple steps ahead of you.

All you need is a mentor who is authentic.

Someone real.

Not some put-together bullshit professional content that makes you roll your eyes.

You like real life stories.

You like knowing you're not alone.

You like being coached by someone who gets it.

And how cool is it that by being my perfectly imperfect self, I'm helping to change lives.

And you're turning around and doing the same.

A beautiful butterfly effect.

All because I decided to get real.

To get raw.

To show up as myself.

To believe in myself.

And to help you do the same.

It's time, ladies.

It's time to drop the perfectionist act.

We're only doing it out of fear of what other people think of us.

And we all know the truth about that crap.

The judgment of others is merely a projection of their own inner struggles.

Wouldn't it feel amazing to be yourself in this world?

To cut the bullshit and truly show up as who you are.

Who you really are.

To live the life you want.

To build the business you dream of.

To experience the freedom of living through your authentic soul.

It's time.

Let's unleash that fearless fempreneur inside of you!

Because shit just got real.

You just felt that flicker of inspiration.

There's no turning back now.

It's time.

It's your time.

So step up and become who you know you are.

Live free.

Be yourself.

It's such an amazing feeling.

And you deserve it.

Calling All Fempreneurs

This week we're digging into the perks of being a fempreneur (or aspiring female entrepreneur, because maybe you're still sitting on the fence about it).

It's all too easy to get caught up in the BS of being a #LadyBoss - the daily "busy work" that sucks us in, if we're not careful. The time-wasters, the energy-suckers, the feeling of having to take it all on at once.

No, today we're pushing that crap to the side, and just exploring the amazing benefits of being a badass business woman!

Entrepreneurship can mean many things to many people, but here's my list of things that has me beyond grateful to call myself a fempreneur:

  • It means we've taken a big leap to believe in our abilities to MAKE IT HAPPEN
  • It means we're ready to take bold action in our business
  • It means we understand the importance of self-care and investing in ourselves
  • It means working with a coach to have support, encouragement and accountability
  • It means we're bigger than our fears
  • It means we have the financial support to allow us to leave the corporate world
  • It means we get to create our own schedules
  • It means we don't need to ask for permission from anyone else
  • It means we can take vacation days without needing a sign-off from management
  • It means we can create an office space for ourselves that inspires creativity
  • It means we get to set goals for ourselves that align with our values
  • It means we can spend more time doing the things most important to us
  • It means we get to build a business by being ourselves
  • It means we're stepping into what we're truly capable of
  • It means we're allowing ourselves to be called to more
  • It means we are in control of our lives
  • It means we get to serve our purpose
  • It means we get to build our business our own way

It means we get to create our ideal life and experience the freedom we deserve!

Sure, there's tough parts about being an entrepreneur - but in the grand scheme of things, those are just blips on the radar.

When your income is based on how many people you're helping with your product or service, that is a wonderful thing.

What better drive, than to serve others and offer them an opportunity to improve their life - all while building a business you can be proud of?

And if you're looking for a community of like-minded women striving to build their empires as well, join us in our free, private Facebook group: Authentic Soul Sisters. We'd love to have you!
