Personal Growth Strategy

Personal development I really believe has to be a part of a life strategy no matter where you are in your career or life.

There are so many incredible forums, courses, audio books, podcasts to listen to, read and absorb. Many are free!

Schedule it into your personal strategy weekly and watch your career and your life reach more balance and overall confidence in yourself.

Life long learners are cool... 😎.

Today, I registered for...
🌍 a Climate change class online at Royal Roads,
🌍registered for the BC Assembly of First Nations Economic Forum in Oct (virtually this year, I was honored to be there in person last year),
🌍and the Vancouver Coast & Mountains Economic Forum in Nov. Stretching my understanding and learning where I can be of most service in my career moving forward is a gift. I will lean into every part of it!

These MANY Months of....

behind our cameras,
with the perfect angles/filters/lighting
behind our "stories",
behind our social,
behind our jobs,

with games,
with scrolling,
with busy work
with our favorite addictions,

Will required a reassimilation of

by unplugging
by strategically scheduling adventures
by playing & laughing
by relearning to be social
by spending time with loved ones
by "actually" taking care of body and mind.

I'm looking forward to showing up real and unapologetically awkward ... I'll probably continue my innate habit of being an oversharerer as well. 🤣

Cheers to our reassimilation into the real world friends. 🥰 I'm so looking forward to seeing each and every one of you for a real coffee visit! ☕

Have you ever stopped Time?

Me neither. So grab the moments when you can. 💙🤎💙
To be able to spend nearly 18 years with this kid has been a such gift. To be able to watch her take the first small steps into adulthood has been heart wrenching and awe-inspiring.

Knowing that the decision that I made 15 years ago to start my business has allowed the flexibility and freedom to be present (annoyingly present on occasion apparently 🤪) creates a sense of profound peace at this stage that I wish for every single parent out there. We don't start this business for ourselves... We start our businesses for this exact peace of mind in the future.

Road trip with Boo was sooo much fun. I'm a grateful momma for friends that are family and love our kids as much as we do. She had so much fun helping with wedding prep, kittens, cupcake assistance, shopping, baking, watching movies, hanging out, board games, teasing and getting teased. We made it back just in time for the annual grad party (which I heard was a great time 🤪).

Letting go and holding on... Simultaneously. 💖

Make a list of all the reason's why you can't.

Make a list of all the reason's why you can't.

Let's say you would love to start a business but you don't think you can. Here's what many people have on their list:

I can't because:

- I don't know what to do
- I don't know where to start
- I need to make $ right now
- I have people depending on me for an income
- I'm scared what people will say
- I'm nervous that I'll fail
- I don't want to annoy my friends

Now flip it... and with that flip, you'll see how.

-I don't know what do
-I don't know where to start
-I need to make money right now
-I have people depending on me for an income
-I'm scared what people will say
-I'm nervous that I'll fail
-I don't want to annoy my friends
(LEARN TO FIND WHO YOU CAN HELP, Meet new people. When you're excited for YOU, those around you will be as well. If they're not... that's OK, they can stalk you on your journey through your social feed. ;-)

Find a business & a coach that understands what's possible for you & your family.

Being an Entrepreneur is hard, being an employee is hard, being a mom is hard, being a human is hard; but ONLY YOU get to pick which "hards" you want to put up with.

I believe in YOU!

The power of FEAR. Use it to push you, not hold you back from your greatness!

I went to a women's retreat last weekend.

I journaled about FEAR and SUFFERING:

One of the biggest takeaways from this weekend was this... I AM NOT into playing small in any part of my life or in my business.   

Before I started my business, I felt paralyzing FEAR of many things.
  • What if we can't pay our mortgage?
  • What if my husband gets sick?
  • What if I die, what will happen to the kids future, will they remember me?
  • What if I get so tired from not sleeping, I forget a child in the car, or have a car accident?
  • What if my depression never ends, and this sadness I carry that no one sees is forever?
  • What if I never get to feel free again?
  • What if I get pregnant with a 3rd, will we be able to afford it?
  • What if I never see a white sand beach again, and all I ever see is the armpit of this awful mountain?
  • What if the car breaks down?
  • What if I never have time to see my friends, and lose touch with them?
  • What if my parents get sick and I need to take care of one or ALL of them?
  • What if I am never respected again in any career I choose to do?
  • What if I never feel valued again?
  • What if I go back to work, will my kids know me?
  • What if ... this is it?  :-( 

Now, 14 years later.  My life and outlook is in a whole new place.  Personal growth has brought me to a place of gratitude.  Fourteen years ago, right when I was at my very lowest...I was offered the gift of possibility, a way to focus my mind, an opportunity for personal growth, all attached to a business that I could HYPER focus on, all from the convenience of home and around MY priorities.

  • We built our dream home and don't stress about the mortgage.
  • We have life insurance and a family plan.
  • We've managed to keep the kids healthy and mostly happy to 15 and 17... and counting.  
  • Found ways to manage my depression with meditation, a self-care plan, my tribe and consistent personal growth.
  • I plan multi-week summer freedom road trips to soul singing places with the kids.
  • Two kids were perfect for us, plans were put in place to keep at 2!
  • Travel is something we schedule in as a couple, as a family, plus I am gifted with lots of travel adventures thru my business..
  • Friendships are always a high priority, coffee dates, travel adventures, any excuse for a visit! 
  • I've been able to spend so much time with all my parents, I'm grateful for daily morning coffee's.
  • I am so respected in my career and am surrounded by the very best mentors and a dream team.
  • I feel very valued in my community and am able to extensively volunteer at the kid's schools.
  • I'm totally unemployable at this time... my kids not only know me as a mom, but as an entrepreneurial leader who creates a life for herself, and for her family by working smart.
  • I know this... more than anything else... I've got more to grow thru and I'm JUST GETTING STARTED!  :-) 

I'm not in the convincing business!  I'm in the helping those who are REALLY ready to never ever let FEAR steer their life decisions for them EVER AGAIN business.  

If any of this resonates with you, direct message me. 


Suffering is that attachment to anything that draws you away from your authentic self; the vibration, the frequency, and the sense of connection to the whole of the universe, and everything in it is disrupted- ~Wedlidi Speck
