I don’t have a degree. It’s something I don’t talk a lot about because I feel like people will judge me. The voices in my head tell me that everything I’m doing isn’t good enough because I don’t have the schooling to back it up. Here’s the thing though, that’s a lie. If you don’t know me, you may not know that when I set my mind to something it’s gonna happen. Even though I’m an Enneagram 9 and can flip-flop my ideas, I’m actually pretty stubborn. When I want something it most always happens. I could have let the naysayers tell me that I wouldn’t make it because I didn’t have a degree in “xyz” but I didn’t. I’m not gonna say I didn’t have a pity party because it feels crappy having people say that to you (or think it) I don’t have a piece of paper, but I do have 49,920+ hours of hard work into my businesses. I’ve learned that I am capable of more than I thought and then some. I may not know the technical terms for a lot of the business, marketing, psychology, advertising, etc out there but I know the meanings. I will never pretend to be something I’m not. But, I am a fighter. A hard worker. A truth teller. I believe that anyone with the drive, passion and gumption can create and excel at any business they choose. I believe that we can push past our adversities, boxes and bubbles into something so much bigger than we imagined. A degree is amazing and if you have one, two or three I bow to you. I just know that for me, not having one doesn’t define me or my success. Don’t let the things you’re ashamed or afraid of hold you back from doing great things.
Do you ever just sit and imagine what your perfect day would look like? . Sometimes I catch myself doing that when I’m at my computer. If I weren’t doing xyz what would I be doing? . I love my job(s). [i do oils and help women build businesses if you didn’t know] No matter how much you love what you do, you can still think about what it would be like doing something else. You follow me here? . For all you ladies out there that love what you do but still think about brunching with your girlfriends on a Tuesday, why don’t you? . Who put rules and limits on what our day is supposed to look like. Here’s the thing, you can be a rockstar boss babe AND take a 2 hour lunch to do whatever the heck you want. . Don’t limit yourself. I wanna hear what one thing you would do for YOU today if there was no time limit/commitment ❤️ 📷@dixieandtwine
Goals. . Do you really know yours? I know a lot of people won’t write their goals down for fear of not accomplishing them. Is that you? . No judgment from me at all. Let me give you some straight advice from one friend to another. . Write. Them. Down. . A few things happen when you do that. 1) you see them. In your face, waving/screaming to you. They’re harder to ignore that way. 2) you know where you’re going. If you don’t write down what you want to accomplish, or where you want to go... how in the world do you expect to get there? 3) physically writing them out does something to your brain. You are 42% more likely to achieve your goals if you write them down. . Do me a favor. Tell me what at least one of your goals is in the comments and then go physically write in on a post it note and stick it on your mirror/car/computer ❤️ (One of mine is in the comments)
We spent the first night in our new home last night. Feels a little surreal to be here because it’s been almost 2 years in the making. Feeling super grateful today. . What’s something you’re grateful for? ❤️
We’re moving some small things over to the house today! . Not gonna lie, stress level is high at the Koehler casa. Say a little prayer for us these next few days. My goal is to unpack as soon as possible! ❤️
It’s #nationalbookloversday and I couldn’t love this book or the author who wrote it more. . Have you read #bossupbook yet? If you haven’t go immediately to @target if you can snag a copy, @barnesandnoble. @audible or maybe your closet airport. This book is gonna change the way you view your business. It will kick you into high gear to follow your dreams 💯. . If you have read it, what’s your favorite takeaway? 📷@lindsayteague
