HOW SHE MADE IT

I'm in the midst of interviewing more incredible women for the 'How She Made It Series: Everything you need to know about becoming a Wealthy Woman.' In the mean time, watch this interview with Shameca Tankerson, and if you've already seen it - watch it again.

Shameca and I met over 2 years ago at the Movement Makers Playground event in Palm Springs, California. We have a shared vision of sisterhood and women owning their voice AND their value.

I'm am not kidding when I say Shameca is a Badass! She knows how to help women make $$$. We laugh and we cry in this interview. Nothing but the real deal here! 

To your wealth,

NOT A FAIRYTALE

When I got home on Saturday morning from my run, the TV was on. To my delight a full replay of the Royal Wedding was on YouTube. Stinky and sweaty collapsing only inches from the TV, I watched mesmerized. 

Then it hit me! Bam. I was hypnotized by the fairytale playing out in front of me. The dashing Prince and the beautiful bride. I had fallen in to the social conditioning of romanticizing the perfect union. 

Now, you might be thinking. So? What is wrong with that? Nothing is wrong with it - at all. However when we are captivated by an idea of perfectionism and idealism we can become disenchanted from the beauty in our own life's messiness and imperfection.

It's time to write new fairytales for the next generation of princesses. Being a badass damsel rather than a damsel in distress waiting to be rescued. Embracing the rags and loving the riches within. Forgiving the ugly stepmothers and creating our own beautiful life.

In so (very) many ways I love what Meghan Markell stands for in the new era of Royalty. Now she has an even larger platform to share her views on feminism and diversity. She represents so much more than the fairytale.

Life is NOT a fairytale. We never know what goes on behind close doors and I have no doubt that this Prince and Princess will face their own imperfections and messiness. 

So, I watched the Royal Wedding from start to finish. I gushed at the newly in-love couple and I sent them a blessing from my soul to theirs. Royalty or not - we are all souls having a human experience.

HOW I MAKE MY MONEY.

Last year I over complicated my business. I started to add in waaaaay too many things to generate more money.

This is a VERY common mistake for entrepreneurs. Call it 'bright shiny object syndrome' or simply too many ideas...or...scarcity mindset.

You get in to a tizzy because you want to make more money - so you create yet another program or try any opportunity that knocks on your door. Yep. Guilty as charged. 

The truth is, you do NOT need to buy another program or create another program, blog, update your website, grow your social media, write a book, create a podcast, build a funnel or grow your list. You heard me - none of it!

I grew my business in to a 6 figure business (which by the way - this is not too boast, it's just to make it measurable for you) simply by connecting with people. THAT'S IT.

I got on the phone, went to events, networked and created community. ALL offline. I had no social media presence, no 'bestselling' book, no funnel or list.

The one key thing I did - was speak! I spoke on other people stages, hosted workshops and created my own platform to speak from. Speaking can be scary - I get it. However I knew I need to get out of my own way if I want to spread my message AND make money.

Speaking and connecting is STILL the number one way I generate money in my business. In fact, I am the opening key note speaker for a huge convergence of women in Las Vegas in April. Am I terrified? Heck yes. Will I let it stop me - heck No! 

No matter whether you live in a big city or a small town. You can use your voice to create connection, share what you do - and more importantly why you do it. Online or Offline - speak, share (from your heart), inspire and you will generate money.

Your voice is your power. 

Be heard, share your wisdom,

YOU

What kind of woman are you?

Strong?
Bold?
Fearless?
Demure?
Confused?
Lost? 

...You all of her. And I celebrate YOU today, on International Women's Day (and every day in fact) for walking your path, when it's windy, bumpy and dark.

I celebrate you for leaping and falling.
I celebrate you for hiding your truth and sharing your truth.
I celebrate you for not knowing what's right and doing what's right.
I celebrate you for your fear and for your courage.
I celebrate you for your naiveness and your wisdom.
I celebrate you for being flawless and full of flaws.

Thank you for being fragile and scared and powerful and courageous.

This is a reminder of how amazing you are. 

With all my heart,

Tiffany

I WAS GOING STIR CRAZY

I was recently stuck in a hotel for 5 days and it made me absolutely stir crazy. You know those kind of hotels where you NEVER have to leave. Numerous restaurants, bars, Starbucks, convenience stores, deli, multiple pools, gym, spa, etc etc...

Well after day 1, I wanted to RUN. I felt claustrophobic, trapped, stifled and anxious.

I had to do everything I could to stay present to the conference I was attending and not succumb to screaming "get me F out of here."

There were 3 things I practiced to helped me stay sane...

...Now you might think staying in a luxury hotel for 5 days isn't such a bad thing. However for someone that craves nature, fresh air and beautiful aesthetics, feeling like the walls are closing in, surrounded by manufactured nature, stale air, cold conference rooms and never ending hallways - I was feeling - yes - less than grateful.

Here are the 3 things I practiced daily:
 

  1. Meditation - Even if all I could manage was 5 minutes, I did it.
  2. Walking - I knew I needed to move my body. I adore running but in my slump walking was all I was motivated to do.
  3. Grounding - This is always a game changer. And out of everything this is what I encourage you to do if everything else feels hard.


Please take 15 minutes to watch this incredible video on the way grounding can heal!

Sometimes the simplest things can move us from a state of anxiety, fear, sadness or overwhelm. We often stay in those states far longer than we need to.

Do yourself a favor, practice extreme self care - every day. And if you already are - then do it even more. Love and cherish yourself - go on I dare ya.

FROM YUCK TO YIPEE

Lillie.jpg

Gratitude, gratitude, gratitude. They say successful people have 1 thing in common - the attitude of gratitude.

Well, what if life just down right sucks and the last thing you feel like doing is being ‘Miss Happy Pants’ and being grateful.

I say, don’t be. Why force something that feels unnatural. However…. wallowing in self pity will soon become boring for you and all those around you.

So start small. Find just one thing to appreciate. I prefer the word appreciation over gratitude because it feels very present. Gratitude can feel like it’s in the past or something you’re searching for.

You can appreciate a good cup of coffee, the sunshine on your skin, the smile from a passer by, a cuddle with your pooch, a phone call with a friend, the smell of flowers. I could go on and on.

Simply starting with small things to appreciate will lead to bigger things. It can lift you out of yuck to yippee quicker than you think.

So next time, take the pressure off. Appreciate the small stuff.

3 (+1) BRANDING HACKS

If you're an entrepreneur with a service based business there are 3 things that you're probably doing that is butchering your brand.

I'm gonna get straight to the point. Here goes:

1.  You're comparing yourself to others.

2. Your message is same, same (AKA - boring).

3. You're not shouting about how friggin' awesome you are.

And here's a bonus one:

4. You're trying to appeal to everyone.

Any of these sound like you? Don't fret and certainly don't beat yourself up. You're not alone. 

Here are some quick fixes for ya.

1. Do what ever you can to stop comparing yourself to others. Go on a social media strike. Whatever it takes. Affirmations, meditate, binge on inspiring books or podcasts, try all of it. Keep reminding yourself that you're AWESOME! You are on your own unique path and your tribe is craving your gifts. No one else can do YOU, like you can. Keep it that way.

2. The biggest thing that stifles our message is looking outward and not inward. Speak with YOUR voice. Do not succumb to fluffy language or fad based messaging. Get straight to the point. You know your ideal client, you know how to speak to her. And if you don't - look in the mirror. Journal, doodle, find silence and start listening to your inner voice and let her out.

3. Stop being so shy. The more you shine your light the more your tribe can find you. I'm not talking about boasting, bragging or name dropping. I simple mean share what you do from your heart. Talk about WHY you do what you do, how much it means to you and how you support those you serve. Embrace your gifts and own the wisdom that has come from the path that only YOU have walked.

4. Yes, you can help a lot of people, but you don't need to. The more you can show that you specialize in helping a certain group of people the more you will be seen as the expert in your field. Focus in on who you're most connected with. And if you're not sure who that is yet, don't worry they will find YOU. Narrowing down on your niche doesn't have to be painful, trust that it will continue to unfold.

You are you're brand. You are the biggest asset to your business, whether you produce a product or service. Keep sharing all of YOU.

Now get out there!

ENTREPRENEURAL BLUES

Let’s be real. Being an entrepreneur isn’t for everyone. It can feel downright hard, at times. Especially when you are in the early stages of building your biz. We are marketed to about quick fix courses, making 6 figures in 6 weeks etc etc. Which let’s face it that’s the top 1% of people and who knows how long it took them to get there - right!

Here’s the down and dirty truth about the things that I find really challenging about being an entrepreneur:

  1. I can get overwhelmed in the enormity of my dreams it can feel unachievable by lil’ ole’ me.

  2. I see people doing what I want to do, implementing the same ideas I have, creating a kick-ass biz, making a bucket load of money and I can feel defeated.

  3. I’ve spent money on marketing that’s totally bombed and done a tonne of work that’s left me exhausted and disenchanted.

  4. I feel like I should be a lot further ahead in my business than I am.  

  5. Money is flowing out quicker that it’s coming in.

Relate to any of these? I’m with you Sister.

Here’s what I remember when I am facing fear and doubt:

  1. I can start with my most inspired idea and take just one small step.

  2. Sure, there are many sisters doing incredible things. AND - “Comparison is the thief of joy.” I am on my own path and with a vision, faith, focus and trust - success is inevitable.

  3. Investing money is part of growing a business. Whether I am investing in marketing, education or coaching it always comes back 10 fold - just not always in the ways (or timing) I expect.

  4. We always overestimate what we can do in 1 year and underestimate what we can do in 5. Patience is a virtue - which I’m still learning ;)

  5. Money loves clarity and flow. Embracing the manifestation of money whilst running a business is ongoing journey of learning and upleveling.

Sometimes the hard times are really hard. The truth is even then I can’t imagine doing anything else. Heck - I get to go and get my nails done in the middle of the day if I want to. I don’t have to ask permission to take an extended vacation - even better, I can take as many as I desire. Most of all. I get to create a business that’s inline with my purpose. I get to birth ideas from nothing - whether they fail or succeed. I’m on the greatest spiritual journey of my entire life. I fully get to own all my weaknesses and strengths. There is nowhere to hide! And there is no limit to the amount of money I can make.

You’ve got this sister!

TOTAL DISRUPTION

It’s often said that when you connect with sacred land for the first time she will often initiate you. This means that things will be given to you (or thrown at you) that will bring discomfort – and of course, lessons.

Stories of losing belongings, being mugged, missing flights, getting ill or relationships ending are just some of the stories I’ve bared witness to whilst travelling. It sounds horrible, I know, but trust me there is always a happy ending.

Guatemala with its puffing volcano’s, historic Spanish influence, beautiful lakes and ancient Mayan culture is certainly enriched with sacred land. Like magic she infused her wisdom into my being - my mind and soul was awakened (as I shared last week) with total disruption.

That was what I thought was my initiation. It was certainly uncomfortable. The questioning, the second guessing, doubt, unsettled unknowns. Alas, that was not all she had for me! Listen above how Guatemala made me angry, cry and grateful all at the same time.

A BIG SHIFT

Over the past few months, much has been unfolding. Fear, love, lies, truth, calm and overwhelm. It's been a roller coaster to say the least.

I've been in deep reflection and with so much introspection I forgot to have fun. 

As an entrepreneurial on a spiritual journey I know you can relate. It's not always easy, in fact many days it's a challenge, but I would not change it for the world. Not one bit...although don't be me wrong, I have entertained other options...like opening a Dry Bar. haha... I mean c'mon imagine how good my hair would look every dang day. 

I recently did a Global Contribution Map with some close friends and mentors facilitated by Alex Iglecia (who I highly recommend you connect with) and what unfolded was deeply profound - That my purpose work is to transform Fear to Love. Ummmmmm YES and holy crap!

It's taken me a while to step in to it because I know I have to do the work to be in integrity, so I can show others the path. And sister, let me tell you the universe been testing me. She has served me many great lessons, which I am eternally grateful for. She knows I learn by experience. Not by courses, workshops, text books, theories, guru's or podcasts. Being in the thick of it is where I truly sink and swim. 

So the question is - when we are evolving and transforming ourselves how do we evolve and transform our business - with us? For example if I only identify with being a 'Branding Expert' how does that relate to being a guiding light for transforming Fear to Love?

I work with many clients that grapple with identifying themselves as one thing when they are feeling the pull of something different. The common denominator is always the same. Your truth. If you were a lawyer turned healer, an accountant turned sharman or marketing turned women's empowerment speaker. It actually doesn't matter. Because their is connection in all of your identities.

For me as a branding expert, I help you see your uniqueness. When you stand in the power of who you truly are, fear turns to love in many, many different ways. Self love, confidence, empowerment, self acceptance etc.  So as I step more fully in to my identity of 'Love Crusader' I actually don't have to dis-regard any previous identity. And either do you. In fact you shouldn't.

I'd love to hear what identity you are transforming. Email me or post in the comment, I always love hearing from you.

Love Bombs,

Tiffany
