When money is tight, when business is slow, when things have not worked out the way you imagined....that’s when we are really challenged to step up and show the world what we’re made of. It’s easy to be motivated when everything is going well. But how do you show up when it’s falling apart? 💫
Beauty begins the moment you decided to be yourself ✨. It was a pleasure to have a quick, and impromptu get together with @evervictoria yesterday. Christmas markets and chats - how much better can it get. In the digital world - it can be such a lonely place. And outside of our household, we often forget that you need to have chats with others about your success, and your failures. Your hopes and your dreams ! Truthfully, I feel this is where the magic happens... for two reasons. 1. Because that person may have a different perspective that can offer a spark of unpredictable creativity. Or 2. they are exactly on your wavelength and can encourage a sprouting idea. How do you make peers in the industry that you’re in ? #bloomandtell
My face when I looked at my old hair... 😱 . . So much frizz and craziness the day I washed it VS my day 3 slept on barely brushed hair. 🤦🏻♀️ #tbt . . Uh hello? Why wouldn’t I keep using hair products without terrible chemicals? 🤯
Christmas is around the corner. I always get an urge to SHOP this time of year! I’m sure that has to do with all the advertisements, sales, & other tactics marketers use to pull us in. None the less, I’ve been blowing my money on myself & gifts for friends & family! Working hard for your money & then being able to spend it is so rewarding! While being responsible with our money should always be top priority, we should never be afraid to spend it too! My mom did good. She taught me Christmas was not about gifts. It’s not even really about giving something materialistic either. It is about giving though; giving laughter, giving your time, giving your service, giving your homemade cooking, giving your love, giving your kindness, & giving thoughtful gifts. Giving can be done in so many more ways then just typical presents. I want to know what you guys are giving this year? Let me know in the comments ⤵️
🙌So that I don’t have to check my bank account before every purchase🙌 This is just ONE of my “whys” I think there’s a lot of content out there that will tell you your “Why needs to make you cry” “That you have to narrow it down to one single reason” “That your why needs to be about you.” Honestly, I have a crap ton of whys. Reason being: I have a lot do people in my life that I love Here’s what I think: That’s OKAY! More the things you have motivating you + as your driving force, the better. And guess what, your why will probably continue to change as you continue to get better. But I gotta say, Right now, a big one for me Is just down right money. I don’t want to have to look at my bank account before every purchase, or bill, or grocery store trip. I want to be able to pay the bills on time instead of on the “grace period” I want to give without a second thought on whether or not I can I want to pay off debt I’m SO close to having this kind of stress relieved in my life. It was and has been a burden for far too long. So I did something, and that something changed everything. And once I achieve these things, my why will be different, at times it might be about me, at times it might not and that’s okay. All that really matters is that your why motivates you

The inclination of a woman’s heart is, BY FAR, the most important factor in determining whether she will conduct herself in a godly way with family, friends, and in her relationship with men! . 🌟Psalm 86:11 says “O Lord, teach me how you want me to live! Then I will obey your commands. Make me wholeheartedly committed to you!”🌟 . This is the base of what the book “Girls Gone Wise in a World Gone Wild” is all about! .

My saving grace this winter. I'm a chronic sufferer of staticky hair every winter. I always kept lotion, oil, and even dryer sheets in my pockets to try and tame the static. The problem with those things was that they only helped temporarily. I couldn't try any hydrating shampoos or conditioners because my hair is fine and all of them just weighed my hair down and left it feeling greasy. Then comes in this 13 essential oil blend. Just one overnight treatment has left my hair static free for days. Not to mention the extra shine and how much healthier my hair feels. Not only has it helped my hair, just a couple drops on my face has helped my skin and even my lips. If you're a chronic sufferer of hair static like I am, even if you don't want to try the amazing shampoo and conditioner this company has to offer, get yourself the Rejuveniqe oil. It's SO worth it, especially with it's 101 uses.
I need to talk about something that’s on my heart. COMPARISON. 1. WHY THE HELL IS SOMEBODY ELSES SUCCESS A PROBLEM?!?!?? Please tell me this, because I don’t freaking understand. Somebody else succeeding does NOTHING but show YOU what’s possible. For instance, the person who ran a mile in 4 mins for the first time, proved to the whole world that it could be done. Somebody succeeding is EMPOWERING, MOTIVATING, INSPIRING, to say the least. They have blazed a path for you, get over yourself + follow the path. 2. Sister fiends, recognize that the people you DO compare yourself to are the people doing what you aspire to do or they are what you aspire to be. HELLOOOOOOO, can you say motivation??!! This is a GOOD thing. Have you ever noticed you don’t compare yourself to people who are in worse situations than you? You compare to the people who are doing what you wish you were. Interesting right? So next time use it as FUEL sista. And again, all you have to go it get over yourself + realize if she’s doing it- SO CAN YOU. Now; get to work + chase your dreams because life is short
📲See that book in my hand? . Yeah that is called “Girls Gone Wise, in a World Gone Wild!” . In this crazy world, it can be hard to hear and see the perceptions of how God wants us to act, speak, look, and how to not try and be like the world and act perfect on the outside but to instead stay authentic and have godly influence! . Should I post about my take aways and what I learn from this? . 📲Tell me in the comments!⬇️
Not at ALL a fan of the cold but I am a fan of an excuse to wear sweaters & long warm socks every day! ❄️☃️ do ya’ll prefer the snow or sunshine?! - Feeling super giddy and happy today after having an amazing team call with my coach and my co-coaches. It’s so incredible to see the friendships forming with people literally thousands of miles away, yet I feel like they are some of my BEST friends. I get to help people change their lives physically, help people find financial freedom, create financial freedom for myself, be in my best physical shape, AND make ever lasting friendships for MY JOB. Pinch me. This can’t be real. HOLY GRATITUDE RIGHT NOW 💗

Hi friends! Erika here. I haven’t posted on the good ol ‘gram in a minute because if I’m honest... I feel like I haven’t had a minute 🤣. ⠀ I’ve started writing this post like 8 times at this point, and I’m finally forcing myself to hit publish. Go me! ⠀ I’m sharing this with you for a few reasons... ⠀ 1️⃣ Life isn’t perfect for anyone. Don’t put the people you follow on a pedestal. I can’t tell you how crazy busy 🙆🏼♀️ this season has been for me and I def don’t have it all together. Don’t fool yourself into thinking anyone does. ⠀ 2️⃣ I encourage you to get help. As we’re still trying to settle into life here in Nashville, we’re getting loads of help! That means outsourcing the things we just don’t have the time for. Cleaning, meal prep 🥕, grocery shopping, organization, business admin. I know this isn’t feasible for everyone and I don’t wanna pretend it is, but, ask for help in any small way you can. Maybe it’s just spending $50 once a month for someone to clean your house 🏡 so you can have a minute with your family. Start small. It’s worth it. ⠀ 3️⃣ Give yourself the gift of self care this year. I’m gonna beat the self care drum 🥁 again and again because I know how much it saves me from losing my actual mind. Anyone who tells you self care doesn’t matter is a crock. ⠀ 4️⃣ Done is better than perfect. This isn’t my best post, best photo, best outfit... who actually gives a flying poop 💩. This girl sure as hell doesn’t. I would rather show up and say I gave it my best than not at all. Let’s take a moment of silence for all the times trying to be *perfect* paid our bills............. well that was short 🤣. ⠀ You’re doin a great job, my friend. Cheering you on 👏🏽
The Top 10 Things you could do with $50. 1. Pick up a nice bottle of wine. 2. Replace old pots and pans. 3. Take a friend to a dinner and movie. 4. Order a disaster kit. 5. Go to Target. 6. Score tickets to an event. 7. Make goodies boxes for your neighbors. 8. Pamper your pet. 9. Gas up the car. 10. Start a business & turn a profit after 2 customers. I launched my business for $299. Started profiting within 2 weeks. Replaced my monthly salary (that had taken 18 years to build) in less than a year. Retired early from my 9-5. Drive a paid-for Cadillac (not even at the top of the company yet). Traveled to Bermuda & Bahamas on someone else's dime. Blew up my comfort zone. Incredibly grateful for taking this fork in the road.
You don’t need a scale or a size to determine the weight of YOUR WORTH. Last night before I went to bed I looked myself in the mirror and said I’m sorry I have let those negative thoughts creep back in but girl I’m about to make you so proud! Believe in yourself Fight for yourself Show up for yourself And most importantly.... Love yourself YOU are worth it! #girlwashyourface#stayathomemom#onlineinfluencer#fitnessmotivation#targetdollarspot#december#weightlossmotivation#beatingdepression#faithandfitness#pomeranianmom

Can we stop feeling guilty for spending money on ourselves? When you invest in caring for or making yourself a better person, you're allowing yourself to accept more abundance into your life. I've invested in myself quite a bit this last year and I just have to say it all has been so worth it. I'm spending money on quality products, so I'm not wasting money on products that no longer work or disrupt my hormones. I've spent more money on personal development this year than I ever have before and my anxiety has improved and my confidence is showing. Investing in myself has done great things for both my business and my personal life. I know it's hard sometimes to realize that it's ok to invest in yourself. Especially when you have kids or other family members relying on you. But remember this, you HAVE to take care of YOURSELF before you can take care anyone else. So if you've been holding back on buying that "expensive" skin care or hair care, that mindset course that could potentially skyrocket your business, or those personal development books your friends have been recommending... just do it. You will thank yourself 100 times over when you finally do. I promise.
Today I just feel like dancing around my living room of pure freaking joy because of all the opportunities the good Lord has given me this month.. I have been feeling so unsure of my future and wondering why life wasn’t going as I had planned until I realized God had GREATER plans that I couldn’t see coming. I am 2 days away from being completely done at my retail job.. so close I can’t even believe it 😭 in 2 days I will be able to wear outfits like this every single day to “work”. I can’t even begin to describe the freedom and happiness I am feeling right now! - And of course as the year is coming to a close, I am always looking to help others find this same freedom 💛 stop being unhappy. Stop working at a job you absolutely dread every single day. Drop an emoji below if this is you and you’re ready to be HAPPY going into 2019! Life is too dang short to not live with a joyful heart.
When I was little and not feeling well mom always gave me ginger ale! Hubs brought home this delicious and made with real ginger drink last night and I’m forever converted!!! #gingerale#tummyache#gimmiethefizz
some places feel like.. coming home you arrive and it feels familiar, warm and open there's been a lot of places like that for me in bali, but overall bali itself feels like home there hasn't been a single moment i felt out of place (okay maybe a little bit the first 3 days, but i was extremely jetlagged) home is a state of mind and i guess bali feels like home because i've find a home in myself it really doesn't matter where i go, it will feel familiar and safe as long as i stay close to me🧡 🌿@botanikbali in canggu is one of those places i can call home when it comes to restaurants and cafe's the vibe is the most important thing to me if something feels off i leave botanik is a space where the sentence 'you do you' is suitable a small open space with cute details, filled with plants and some cute places to sit it's that they don't have fairy lights.. otherwise i would just move in there😂(i travel with fairy lights in my backpack, just love it too much and it transforms any space from okay to super cute) what/who do you call home at the moment?🏠 captured by @carovandelooverbosch edited by me and shot on my #sony a7iii
BUILDING CONFIDENCE💪There are so many parallels between the fitness journey and the entrepreneurial journey. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ When you step in to the weight room for the first time, everything is new. You don’t know the lay of the land yet, you’re unsure of what to expect and you don’t trust that you can handle it. Lifting feels disorienting and a little scary until you get stronger. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Likewise, the start of your business feels uncertain and risky until you start accumulating some wins and getting a grasp on what you should be doing. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ But the keys to getting better in both are 2 things: ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ 1️⃣ You adopt it as a *lifestyle* instead of just a hobby or something you’re “trying out to see.” ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Wanna build muscle or lose body fat? You start acting *as if* you’re already that person, the one who’s already made it a lifestyle, rather than someone who continues to “start over on Monday” or does quick fix after quick fix. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ In that same vein, you begin treating your business as if it’s going to be the thing you do forever, rather than just trying it out or having a backup plan just in case. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ 2️⃣ You start trusting yourself more, and as a result, you push yourself further and further. You become more willing to get out of your comfort zone. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Over time in your fitness journey, your base of strength improves and you start moving more athletically. You add more weight to the bar. You attempt more advanced lifts. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Same with business—you manage your expectations better, you move on from hiccups faster, you trust yourself to handle the unknown a little more. You get good at resiliency. You see your business as a puzzle to solve, always looking for a solution, rather than just giving up at the first sign of struggle.
Anyone else make some extra goodies this time of year? 🍭🍬🍪🍫 My favorites are anything with peanut butter and chocolate so of course I have to make buckeyes. Next week David and I are going to go down to my parent's house and decorate sugar cookies to carry on my family's yearly tradition! It's always a huge mess but it's so much fun. What are your favorite sweets to have this time of year?!
Met in University, parted ways only to reconnect years later, to building a business together....we never saw it coming!👭 It was a scary leap becoming an online health coach but having friends by my side and a a supportive team of #bossbabes washed all the fears away!! Sometimes just knowing you’re never going at it alone makes all the difference! 💖 #friendship#bestjob

Have you ever gone through an incredibly painful season? Maybe even this year... Heartbreak Disappointment Struggle. ⠀ Maybe you've had a miscarriage, Or you have a chronic illness Maybe you're going through a hard break up or a struggle in your marriage... A job loss... Grieving a death.... or fighting depression..... ⠀ And the people that you thought would be there supporting you through it all, are incredibly silent.... Absent even.... ⠀ Or maybe it’s actually a really good season? What if you're crushing at every turn? The hard work is finally paying off and you're seeing the fruit of your efforts.... ⠀ Maybe you've gotten a big promotion, Maybe you’ve started your own business and its going great... Maybe its a new felt momentum. Or maybe you're just happy for the first time in a long time.... ⠀ And the people that you thought would be there celebrating you are incredibly silent.... Absent even... ⠀ I've known both of these, simultaneously this year. Incredible wins accompanied with staggering struggle. ⠀ And there are certain people I thought would be here both supporting me & championing me, who have been incredibly silent.... Absent even.... ⠀ And its hurt none the less... ⠀ ________________________ ⠀ If I've learned anything in this season it’s been this: 🌟Expectations & Boundaries. Stop expecting those to hold space for you who never really have. Place a boundary around them if it is causing you heartache. 🌟Bless & Release. Not everyone can come with you where you're going... 🌟Hold tight to those who are showing up for you. Thank Them. Encourage them the way they have encouraged you... 🌟Support & Celebrate you. First and Foremost. ⠀ We can only ever be responsible for ourselves. Be what you need for you, first. Give what you lack from others, to all, always.... xo
Sooo this weekend we did something fun! 🎅🏼We took the kids to see Santa for the first time! I wanted to take them last year but missed the chance so of course we had to this year. David and I were trying to guess how they would react to a big strange guy with a beard and we were both wrong. We thought they might bark or cry because they were scared or that they would go crazy jumping and kissing. Turns out, they might have been a little scared but held perfectly still on his lap for the picture! The photographers had to yell to try to get their attention because they wouldn't take their eyes of David and I (probably making sure we weren't leaving them with this strange guy) It was so much fun including them in our evening out and we got this awesome picture to remember it by! Definitely recommend taking your pups for pics with Santa if you get the chance! We'll have to do this every year!🐶🐶
WHAT ARE YOU THE BEST AT? ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ A while back I had a convo with my friend @jasonphillips_in3 and he mentioned how, as he started building his online nutrition coaching business, he was kinda going along, doing okay, but never fully owning his expertise and how good he really was at it. . Until, a mentor called his BS, told him he was playing small and that he needed to double down on what he was uniquely amazing at. . And he did. Just declared it. Publicly. Owned it. Finally. No apologies. No watering anything down. With all the confidence + competence he’d been reluctant to show. And that single energetic shift skyrocketed his biz overnight. 👇👇👇 So many of us have something amazing and special to offer. We have a super power. We have a zone of genius. We have something that makes our services and offerings uniquely life-changing for clients + customers (or even just out in the world). . And yet, often we’re scared to SAY IT IN A BIG WAY. To declare it. To own it. To be the person providing the gold standard for that thing. . We play scared because ... “Why me? Who am I? So-and-so’s already saying that. I’m just getting started. I don’t have the right, blah blah blah.” ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ All that is, is a story designed to keep us small and under the radar. . I’ll tell you who’s qualified: the person who has the right to do it is the one doing it. Period. . I don’t know about you, but when I think about the impact I could be making w/o my own limiting beliefs in the way, I get goosebumps! . So I’m dedicated to uncovering them. I’m dedicated to quitting playing small & scared. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ I’m ready to declare. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Are you? ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ I’d love to know what your super power is! What’s the thing you do best? The thing you want to be known for? . CONSIDER DECLARING IT PUBLICLY . I know it’s scary to declare publicly, but that’s exactly the

i keep finding devils and demons on my search for heaven they climb on my back uninvited and sneaky so i won't notice it's like walking to your destination with a way too heavy backpack it's heavy because you've been collecting unnecessary stuff along the way several times you want to stop, take a rest or maybe even stay where you are at that point just because it's getting way too heavy which makes you wonder if the destination is worth it but at the same time you want to continue walking, curious about the destination and excited about finally arriving then you start to think.. what if i leave some stuff behind? but you actually want to keep all of it, you got so used to having it the walk continues and then you collapse your body can't take it any longer you start to think about how you started off, the things you already had and the things you collected along the way realizing that you were fine without the extras you open your backpack and throw away the unnecessary things, but not without acknowledging and appreciating what it brought you the walk continues and you feel reborn a new person light, motivated, happy, re-enerigized shake those devils and demons off your back, you're better of without them🧡 • • • picture by @carovandelooverbosch edit by me shot on my #sonya7iii#freespirit#spiritualgrowth#devilonyourback#edrecovered#mentalhealthawareness#depressionawareness#onlineinfluencer#ubud#barefoot#junglevibes#positivemindset#freedom#misfit#solofemaletraveler#bali2018#balivegan#songbroekbali
