So proud of my friend, @kariswitala for getting her book launched! I can relate to it all. :) . (Her son with the plunger, Sam, has been my son, Joel's, good friend since Kindergarten!) . Grab a copy of the book here. Makes a great gift for any entrepreneur mom! https://amzn.to/2Dod1xI
Chalene Johnson was the first mentor I had in this business. I felt so confused and overwhelmed with how to start an online business. I loved watching her videos and lives, which helped spark my curiosity to study storytelling. Her course, Smart Success, was the first course I ever bought for my business. 🎥 She continually inspires me to do more and consistently practice what I preach. 💪 I was beyond thrilled to be able to meet her at the Kajabi conference. 🤩 Chalene was every bit as energetic and friendly in person, even offering to take extra photos in better lighting. 📸 Who has inspired you that you would love to meet in person?
🤗Happy Friday friends! There are so many new faces around here so let me reintroduce myself! ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ 👋 I'm Melissa, the creator of all things at The Blooming Photographer. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ I left my full time corporate job a little over a year ago to pursue my dream of being a full time photographer + educator + spend more time with my family. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ I love to ENCOURAGE and INSPIRE female photographers to dream bigger and then actually TAKE MASSIVE IMPERFECT ACTION toward those big dreams. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ I live in a small town in the midwest with my three kids and husband. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ I geek out over productivity, spreadsheets, analyzing data + conversion rates. (I know, I'm weird!) ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ I believe in community. REAL COMMUNITY. Where female photographers support one another instead of cutting each other down. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ My favorite simple joy is a hot cup of green tea in the afternoon. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Tell me about you! ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ What's your favorite simple joy? (Tell me in the comments!!)
Another non-scale victory! This might be a difficult one to understand if you’ve never really been overweight. I chose to wear a white shirt today! That’s something that I have always avoided. Always. Why? Because white shows everything. There’s no hiding lumps and bumps and rolls and all of that with a white shirt. So I always chose black. Or dark gray. Or navy. Or mainly just black. But today, I’m wearing a white shirt and I feel good about it! Guys, it’s the little things. I’m gaining more confidence every day. #csegains#csechallenge#gettinghealthy
♥️ Meet Dana who is living with PCOS. We have dozens of success stories for those that deal with this condition and there is HOPE and LIGHT at the end of the tunnel 🤗 . Dana describes our program, so well, with her testimony! We aren't offering diets and quick fixes here, we are offering life transformation. We love what we do so much because of stories like Dana's (and ours)! 👇👇👇 . “My palms are literally sweating as I type this. I've posted so many of these types of pictures. But this one, this feels so real. So raw. . I see the Dana from this past January on the left. So full of optimism and hope for breaking through this thing that has held me back my entire life. The Dana that was told because of her PCOS she would always be obese, never have kids of her own and struggle against her body her entire life. And I'm so darn thankful that she didn't believe it. . That, despite trying (and failing at!) hundreds of diets in the past, she gave this lifestyle - as different as it seemed - a chance. That crazy glimmer of hope has led to the Dana on the right. The Dana from tonight. 💥 🌟🔥The Dana who has not yet arrived, yet who is becoming. I'm just starting to get to know this Dana. She's more fierce and fearless. She is learning boundaries. She's learning discipline. She is being supported like crazy and has found a tribe to call her own - one that encourages her newly found healthy habits. Most importantly, she is learning to dream in a way she never has before.” . . This is NOT a diet. It’s a complete life change. Your body changes, yes, but so will everything else in your world. What a fantastic journey it is." 🎉🎉🎉 . . #notadiet#blissful#optimalhealth#healthcoachlife#goalcrusher#bethebestyou#loseweightnow#motivatedmindset#healthjourney#fitwife#fitcouples#fitmomof4#momswithmuscles#strongmom#fitmomlife#healthyfamily#eatingright#healthybodyhealthymind#feelingmotivated#weightgoals#lifeisbliss#getonmylevel
We rise by lifting up others. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ My mission is to empower people to own their gifts, embrace their uniqueness, and fly that freak flag! (and make money doing just that...because you deserve financial freedom too.) ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ I have no interest in taking on the world by myself. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ I'd rather be the one next to you reminding you of your greatness and potential...helping you lift your head to gaze at what's to come, and linking arms with you [because I'm cheesy and weird like that]. And I don't give up on people. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ When the going gets tough...those who stay are the ones who have weathered similar storms and those who have big hearts that don't let ego or fear steer them away. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ I am here for those who are driven...and they actually give a damn about people. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ The people I work with are leaders in every sense of the word. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ And leaders need guidance too. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ I am a leader and I seek guidance from my coach. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ We rise by lifting others. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Here, lemme help you uncover your soul from these fears, doubts, and limiting beliefs...and in so doing, we both rise. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ This world will change for the better when each do our part. And that starts within ourselves. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ We change the world by focusing on ourselves first. (sounds backwards, riight?) ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ But if we're all doing our own inner-work...and helping each other with this work on ourselves... ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Damn. That's some beauty amongst the messy mess. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Watch the world change for the better... . . . 👉TAG the people in your life who make the mess beautiful!💕💫 . . . . . . #risesisterrise#togetherwerise#werisetogether#bossbabe#solopreneurs#entrepreneur
There is a story behind this picture... (sorry it is a long one.)⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ 🏠⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Last year, my family moved to the next town over. My wife and I bought the house in 1996. We started a family in this house. Raised 2 kids in this house and watched them grow. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ 🚜⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ This week, 23 years later, the house was torn down. Built in 1958, a newer, bigger edition will be created.⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ 😪⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ The 4 of us returned one more time to our former residence. Only this time, no house. Initial shock and sadness gave away to a flood of memories. Our kids playing in the driveway, in the yard. Going to areas of the yard where certain events happened. Took pictures of my 2 kids sitting on a rock that they once sat on together for a picture maybe 17 years ago. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ 😕⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ We also went to the approximate area where we put a deck off the back side of the house in 2001 and started looking for the cement footing. This footing had a handprint of each of us. I started kicking the dirt in a random way and I thought I found something. I dug with my feet a little more and found part of the slab with my daughter's handprint. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ 😀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ We now had a memory with a physical piece of evidence. We also found a piece of the clapboards on the house. I also took a couple of rocks from the rock wall we put in.⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ 🎉⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ We stayed laughed, and talked for about 90 minutes as it started to get dark. We all left with smiles and our hearts filled. The house is gone but HOME will never be.⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ 🏋️♂️⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Looking at this photo this morning, I also saw a great analogy for success. Success is defined in many different ways by many different people. The one I like the best is

Every day I’m learning something new! Knowledge is power! Stay woke! Each day is a new opportunity to be better than you were yesterday! So decide enough is enough & work towards what makes you happy. I had so many excuses before I started & allowed them to get in my way. Preventing me from reaching my goals. See there will always be an obstacle & it’s up to us to keep pushing through. Progress NOT perfection! We all have to start somewhere & starting is the hard part. Once you get started the hard part becomes the consistency, then comes.... well you get the point! There’s always going to be something but U CAN OVERCOME IT! This whole feel uncomfortable thing I got going on has pushed me to do things I wouldn’t have before & for that alone I am proud of myself! It’s a growing & learning process that I get to experience everyday! What I’m trying to say is we need to make ourselves priority. Regardless what gets thrown your way you must keep going! It’s not suppose to be easy but the outcome is what makes it worth it! Changing lives gives me this unexplainable feeling & I love what I do!

What if one phone call could change your perspective, and change your life? One phone call to affirm you are strong and capable? What would that mean to you? To me it would mean the world...it came this week. After pressing mute 3 times, I took the call “Congratulations your a Isabody Finalist” ...words I only dreamed of hearing and almost missed In a year of tremendous upheaval & change, it means everything to be acknowledged, congratulated, and loved. It means my efforts in physical, emotion and spiritual growth are significant beyond what I can comprehend. Watch out world, I’m just getting started! When is it your turn? If not now, when? #teammetamorphosis#isabodyfinalist2020#isalife#strongereveryday#dreambig#goalcrusher#thankyouyoda
You will never always be motivated, you have to learn to be disciplined and self discipline starts from within you. . . Pick some healthy goal you would like to accomplish in your life and start small. Those small steps equal the greater result, creates habit and the practice of self discipline. . . Start with a simple 7 days: If it’s diet: 1. Cut sugar for 7 days 2. Cut alcohol for 7 days 3. Eat 1 cup greens with every meal for 7 days 4. Don’t skip a meal for 7 days 5. Cut dairy and grains for 7 days If it’s exercise: 1. Do some form of physical activity for 7 days 2. Go for a 1 mile walk 3. Do 50 pushups 4. Spend less time sitting and more time moving *There are so many little things to grow into the greater result. Start small, truly want it and the greater changes will occur . Happy Full Moon & Good Friday 🤙🏼
