WHY “JUST MONETIZE YOUR PASSION” IS A BAG OF CAT’S💩 . This is controversial, but I gotta say it. STOP TRYING TO MONETIZE EVERY SINGLE HOBBY & PASSION. MULTI-PASSIONATE MELISSA, I’M TALKIN TO YOU. I see you trying to shove every single passion into your IG bio & make it a business. 😂 I love you, homie. But that’s not what your business is about. If I did that, I’d legit have 56 businesses! I’m a 7 on the Ennegram, so I WANT TO DO ALL THE THANGS! But, I don’t try to sell ALL of my passions. Because I know it’s actually selfish to make the business about me. My business is about THE PROBLEM I SOLVE. My business is about helping YOU. And the coaches who are saying to “just sell what you’re passionate about” are forgetting the other necessary components of a profitable business. 🤨 SKILLSET. People buy skills. People buy SOLUTIONS. People don’t buy cute hobbies or passions. Your customer doesn’t give a Lizard’s Butthole that you love hiking, your 6 cats & motivating women. That’s not a viable BUSINESS. Those are your passions. So, if you’re feeling stuck on your NICHE, I want you write this down, sis. I’m dead flippen serious. Making money doesn’t have to be stick-a-pen-in-your-eyeball difficult. 👇🏻 1. WHAT DO YOU ENJOY/FEEL EXCITEMENT FOR? What specific pain point gets your heart beating in excitement to serve/solve? 2. WHAT ARE YOU GREAT AT/CAN GET RESULTS IN? What area of life have you mastered? Remember, you don’t need to be an expert, but you do need to be a few steps ahead of your customer. What problem can you help someone solve? 3. WHAT WILL THE MARKET PAY FOR? This is the one I know you’re resisting, but it’s the truth. Is what your selling something women are saying they WANT? Does it pass the Google Test? Confident coaching doesn’t count. That’s a method, not a solution. Empowerment coaching isn’t a business, it’s a modality. If what you’re selling isn’t a KNOWN + SEARCHABLE + TANGIBLE problem, it’s going to be difficult to sell. 👇🏻 So, if you haven’t yet, take a shot of espresso & SPRINT inside my Niche Course. $100 off for the next 48 hours. Gotta move fast, homie! YOU ARE GOING TO BE MIND BLOWN. Use code “CHEESEBALLS”. LINK IN BIO! 💰
I SOLD OUT A LIVE EVENT WITH 1500 WOMEN WITH ZERO PAID ADS...(how did I do it? ) ⠀ Want to host YOUR own profitable + badass event? Keep reading... ⠀ 1. Host online events first. Practice promoting & hosting live webinars/Zoom calls before you host your first in person event. This trains your audience to show up for you & gives you practice public speaking. Building trust with your audience first is everything. ⠀ 2. Market it like crazy. I didn’t spend $1 on Ads for #paystobebrave, because I showed up online every damn day. I (passionately ) shared about PTBB for over 10 months! Use all social platforms + podcasts to promote & find tribe leaders to help you cross promote. ⠀ 3. Even getting 50 butts in chairs is HARD WORK. Start small & host local meetups. My very first event was 24 women. Talk about your event until the cows come home. It’s your baby. You’ve got to be OBSESSED. ⠀ 4. Hire a planner. Dude. You’re the creative brain. Don’t try to wear all the hats & be the organizer. This was scary my first event, but I am so glad I invested. ⠀ 5. Don’t expect your first event to make you a crap load of money or be your best event. Your first event is about PRACTICE, getting to know your audience & having fun. You’re going to mess up. You’ve got to be willing to look stupid before it’s incredible. ⠀ 6. Social proof is everything. Share attendees excitement (in video ) on social! No one sells your event better than your tribe. How can you build excitement around the event? ⠀ 7. Your event isn’t about you...it’s about your peeps! ASK THEM WHAT THEY WANT. Why are they coming? Use their exact lingo to craft your sales page + event content! ⠀ 8. Have a theme. What’s the outcome/niche of your event? Who’s this event for/not for? ⠀ Alright, home slice! Do YOU want to host your own event & become a confident speaker? ⠀ ERRRR MEEER GERRR! YOU’RE IN FOR A TREAT! 👇🏻 My soul sis + fellow event ninja, @loriharder & I are hosting a FREE WEBINAR on Monday the 21st at 5pm PST! ⠀ We are spilling our secrets & sharing the exact strategies to sell out events! ⠀ ⚡️TEXT PTBB TO 31996 to register for the webinar!⚡️ (i promise i won’t text you nudes ) #PTBB2019
WHAT IF YOUR PAIN WAS A GIFT? Moments before I stepped on stage Saturday at #PTBB2019 God told me exactly what you needed. I closed my eyes and saw you needing to see your pain as a BLESSING. ⠀ What if when you got fired from your job it was actually a blessing in disguise? What if it was the push you needed to finally quit & pursue your passion? I wouldn’t be where I am today if I didn’t get fired from corporate & drop out of college. What if your shitty childhood & parents lead you to have massive empathy for humans? What if this beautiful empathy will heal the world? Majority of healers had childhood trauma that inspired their work. I wouldn’t be so dedicated to helping you if I had a perfect childhood. ⠀ What if your debt was actually fuel to help you start the side hustle? What if your financial debt kept you hungry & inspired to start a new story about money for your family? What if there was a message in your mess? Majority of powerful leaders had debt as their catalyst. My $100k+ of debt was my driver for being an successful entrepreneur. ⠀ What if your autoimmune condition, physical limitation or disease helped you appreciate every single pain free moment & helped you never take your physical body for granted? What if it keeps you grateful for every single moment? What if it inspired you to launch your wellness coaching business that helps thousands? ⠀ What if that time someone broke your heart into a million pieces ended up being the greatest gift to discovering what you deserve? What if that heartbreak opened space for the man of your dreams to show up? What if your divorce lead you to finally find yourself & start a new life? My painful separation last year led me to the love of my life. ⠀ What if the rude comments other kids told you in high-school inspired you to teach women how to be confident in their skin? What if what you were once made fun of for ended up being your PURPOSE? I teach you confidence today because growing up I was made fun of and didn’t have any. Everything I teach you today is from a previous pain. As @officialmikelee said at Pays To Be Brave....What if PAIN was your GIFT? 💙👇🏻
Binge watching New Girl on Netflix (+ downing @halotopcreamery ice cream + @mysoulcbd gummies ) while writing this. I burned enough calories to have run a marathon this weekend at Pays To Be Brave. SO MUCH DANCING ON STAGE. 😮 👵🏻 Help! What else should I watch!? Tell me, homie! 👇🏻 ⠀ REAL TALK. ⠀ This week I am giving my body & brain a MUCH NEEDED REST. I’ll admit. 🙈It’s reeeeeally hard for me (as a go-getter energizer bunny ) to slow down, but I am BEYOND exhausted after #PTBB2019. I am here to remind myself & you that as hardworking women we MUST honor our body. This may mean speeding up...or it may mean slowing the f down. Whatever it is, honor it. ⠀ My reminder for you? ⠀ Your business is like your body. It’s cyclical. It has seasons. It has contrast. ⠀ We aren’t going to have balls to the walls “OMG I AM GOING TO TAKE OVER THE WORLD” energy every single morning. And that’s OK. We are humans, not machines. Remind yourself that you’re not a sucky business owner, mother or leader if you take a day to recharge your battery. ⠀ Here’s the deal, sis. Sometimes taking a step back is necessary in order to take 2 steps forward. Show up powerfully 95% of the time, but also know when you need to REST. You’re going to have days (or even weeks/months ) where you need to sit back & digest more than you push & create. This is the beautiful feminine v masculine energy of business. And as ambitious + creative women, we need BOTH. Both energies have their purpose. Both are necessary. Both are beautiful. ⠀ Don’t judge yourself for having “off” days or being more in the feminine energy. Don’t judge yourself for being in the hustle/push mode or masculine energy. Both are needed to be successful, love. The reason I’m able to show up with such powerful + energizer bunny energy on stage (+ majority of the time on social media ) is because I know how to REST. 💗 I rest and play just as hard as I grind & hustle. ⠀ So, how about YOU? What season are you in, friend?🦋👇🏻
The moment I stepped off stage last night I uncontrollably bawled my eyes out to @officialmikelee “We have to keep doing this for people. So many humans are in so much pain. People need our help. I felt them so deeply. People need our joy. We are here to show them hope, Mike. We are here to remind them of their power and that their pain is a gift. We are here to do this work.” ⠀ Sharing this beautiful & vulnerable moment with my brother, best friend and business partner was one I’ll never forget. Grateful to be a vessel for this work. Grateful for the opportunity to change lives. Grateful for every single human we impacted this weekend. I envisioned this moment 10 years ago and to have this dream come to life is beyond surreal. ⠀ We love you. You’re powerful beyond measure. See you all in Chicago! (TIX IN BIO! ) #PaysToBeBrave 💙
MY HEART IS ON FIRE! 🔥 I AM READY FOR YOU CHICAGO 2020! Who’s comin!? WE ARE HEADING TO MY HOMETOWN, SIS 🙂! LINK IN BIO FOR CHICAGO TICKETS! 🎫 #PaysToBeBrave
10 years ago I WISHED a woman said this to me, so I’m going to say it to you. ⠀ Stop waiting to get picked and pick your damn self. God is WAITING for you to raise your hand & ask.🖐🏻 Even if your hands are sweaty & shaking, he’s waiting for you to ASK. ⠀ I wasted years of my life waiting to be “picked”. I waited for the podcast interviews. I waited for the raise. I waited for the clients to knock on my door. I waited for the speaking opportunities. I waited for the collaborations. I waited for someone to hand me the business plan. I waited for someone to give me the answers. I waited for the phone call. I waited to share my story. I waited to be enough. ⠀ I waited. Until I realized this secret: ⠀ But here’s the truth, friend. This world truly favors the woman who’s (unapologetically ) BOLD enough to OWN & ASK for what she wants. ⠀ Every single thing you want comes from you being brave enough to show up & ASK. ⠀ So, let’s start TODAY. How are you going to pick yourself?👇🏻
And here’s what I know for sure, friend. The only regret you’ll have on your death bed is letting dreams die inside you. You’ll regret not taking the chance. You’ll regret not having the courageous conversation. You’ll regret not leaving the job you hate. You’ll regret not raising your hand. You’ll regret not leaving good for great. ⠀ And that’s my purpose here on this beautiful Earth. I’m a match to set your soul on fire & a mirror to show you what’s possible. ⠀ I’m here to remind you of your power when no one else believes in you. I’m here to go first (even though I’m scared shitless ), so you can follow. I’m here to remind you that everything you need is already inside of you. Or on Google. 🤣 I’m here to not let you die with potential inside of you. I’m here to help you dream the crazy unrealistic dream. 🔥 LET’S DO THIS, SAN DIEGO! #PaysToBeBrave
FEAR IS YOUR HOMIE, NOT YOUR ENEMY. 4 SECRETS TO DANCING WITH FEAR. It’s a beautiful fuel that reminds you of your purpose. It’s a GPS and a best friend for your dreams. So, 1 day out from PTBB 2019 & I’m wanting to 💩 my pants (a lot ). So WHAT DO I DO!? ⠀ I remember these 4 things. And I want you to write these down: ⠀ 1. Fear is your homie. He’s not here to hurt you. He’s sometimes that annoying/anxious/funny friend in the passenger seat, but he’s still your friend. And he’s always with you. And a lot of times, he’s your GPS. He helps show you where you want to go. But, the secret is to never let him drive the car. You drive the car. You call the shots. You’re in the driver seat. ⠀ 2. What we resist persists. When we try to run away from fear, it sprints towards us. It’s like an anxiety attack. Idk about you, but as someone who has suffered from debilitating anxiety, I know that whenever I tried to run away from the anxiety, it actually got worse. What happens if you’re surfing and you run away from the wave? You drown. Anxiety & fear are the same. Ride the wave, friend. It will pass. ⠀ 3. Nothing is as bad as it seems. You know what I mean, right? Our Lizard Brain loves to play games & is bread for survival. It makes us think we actually may die if we public speak, launch the course or ask for the raise at work. But the reality is, we won’t. What’s the worst that could happen? If it’s not dying, you’re good. If you can always go back to the job, then you’re already in your worst case scenario. Repeat after me: I won’t die. I am safe. I have always been safe. ⠀ 4. Everything you want is on the other side of fear. Ask yourself this, friend. What’s the best thing that could happen? If the only real failure is standing still, then you’ve must jump. So tell me, friend. Which of these is the most helpful for you? How’s your relationship with fear? 👇🏻 #paysToBeBrave
LET’S DO THIS, SAN DIEGO. 🔥💙#PaysToBeBrave #ReadyIsALIE
WHAT IF YOU TREATED YOUR DREAM LIKE A BABY? WOULD YOU GIVE UP ON IT? 🔥 ⠀ What separates a successful woman from the stuck? One treats their dream like a baby. The other treats their dream like a hobby. And the successful woman doesn’t let the opinions of others stop her from showing up for her baby. It’s time to stop giving away your power to those judging you or laughing at your baby. ⠀ My college counselor laughed in my face when I told her I wanted to quit & monetize my blog. She told me it wasn’t a “smart idea” & I would never become a paid speaker and help women. “That’s just silly. People don’t pay to listen to podcasts or read blogs, Angie.” ⠀ My ex didn’t say a word when I (excitedly ) told him the idea for Pays To Be Brave. My heart broke into a million pieces. Days before PTBB 2018 I still didn’t feel like he was 💯 in my corner. I was supposed to marry this man. How could he not support my dream? He was a really great man, but I called off the engagement because my heart knew I couldn’t have a teammate who didn’t want to be on this rocketship with me. I literally choose helping YOU and this dream, over him. ⠀ Along this crazy journey I’ve hid so much of my story due to fear of what BROKE Uncle Ted, girlfriends, ex boyfriends, parents or loved ones will think of me. I’ve held back my gifts. I’ve not shared parts of my story. That’s selfish. And I won’t ever do it again. ⠀ The greatest shift I made was treating my dream like a baby. It’s inside me. It has a heartbeat. And so does yours. ⠀ Remember this, love. No one can take your dream away from you. No one. 🔥 Moms, can you relate to this? Can you imagine someone kidnapping your baby? Can you imagine quitting on your baby because of what someone said? Of course you can’t. The pain of not loving & supporting your child isn’t fathomable. You would do ANYTHING to save him/her. Why is your dream any different? ⠀ Here’s what I have learned, friend. ⠀ When you care about someone else’s opinion of you, you are giving them YOUR power. ⠀ You’re choosing their doubt over your dream. ⠀ Your dream is your baby. Protect it. #PaysToBeBrave
I AM HAVING A BABY THIS WEEKEND😛SEE YOU IN 4 DAYS #PaysToBeBrave SAN DIEGO! PTBB ROUND 2! Let’s get super weird, dance our #BabyGrandma booties off & dream super big, mmkay? 💃🏼 👵🏻 ⠀ 3 years ago I had this “silly little” idea in my shower to create a top female entrepreneur conference. My heart was racing with excitement but I felt massive fear around the unknown. I didn’t know HOW THE CHEESEBALLS to put on a live event. My Fear Gremlins were screaming at me... ⠀ “Who are you to do this, Angie?” “You’re too young. Wait a few more years.” “You’re not an expert in events yet. Wait until you are.” “That sounds like a lot of work. Maybe just wait until next year.” “What if no one shows up? What if no one likes the idea?” “There’s already a lot of events. Why should you even compete?” “How are you going to figure this out? You didn’t even graduate college.” “Events are really hard. You probably shouldn’t even try.” ⠀ I had 2 choices. Let the fear stop me. Or let it FUEL me. ⠀ I asked myself these 2 questions & it forever changed my life: ⠀ Why not you? Why not now? ⠀ Fast forward and PTBB is now an international event with 1500 of you incredible women attending this year. UNFREAKING REAL. PINCH MEEEEEE. ⠀ The 2019 Pays To Be Brave theme is “why not you? Why not now?” ⠀ Buckle up, sister! You’re about to experience a weekend to remember. 🔥
THIS MAY STING...BUT I GOTTA SAY IT. IF YOU ARE AFRAID TO SELL, THEN YOU AREN’T OBSESSED WITH YOUR PRODUCT. 😮 I’m going to keep it super real with you, home slice. I am interviewed all the dang time on organic sales strategy. I’ve generated over 1 mil in digital courses, multiple 6 fig in affiliate marketing & over 1 mil in physical products with no fancy funnels, no complicated sales pages & GOOSE EGG dollars spent on Ads. Side note. I’m not saying this to sound like I’m too cool for school 🙄 . (wait. school sucks. Lol wrong analogy ) ⠀ BUUUT...I’m saying this so you realize that YOU can do it too. It wasn’t rocket science. It didn’t cost me anything. And I’m not a genius. ⠀ Here’s the truth. You can pay a crap load for a perfect website, cute logo and dialed in backend of your business... but if you aren’t doing these 3 things, sales won’t happen. Which of these do you need help with most? Tell me, below! ⠀ 1. Love your product so much that it’s a disservice not to sell. When you believe in what you do 💯 , it’s a disservice to not share your solution. If this product changed your life, why are you afraid to shout it from the rooftops? If you love your company, why are you afraid to share the opportunity? Sales is a transfer of excitement, confidence and passion. Only sell what you’re absolutely obsessed with. 2. Get inside your customer’s head. Your copy and marketing isn’t about you....it’s about your customer. This simple shift can make you poop 💩 ton of money. Finish conversations your customer is already having. When your customer feels understood on a deep level, you’ve gained their trust. Trust = sales. What keeps your customer up at night? What is she stressing about? What content would solve her problem? Empathy is your superpower, so here’s where sharing your STORY & TRANSFORMATION is key! ⠀ 3. It’s not about you. It’s about your customer. This is the essence of sales. So often we create content that gets people to “look at us”, but we forget people need to learn from us. It’s time to put your customer first. It’s time to make your content about HER, not you. How can you SERVE before you sell? 💰👇🏻
At 6 years old, my mom walked into my bedroom & saw me standing on a cardboard box speaking to 100 of my Barbies with a toothbrush microphone. ⠀ She said I was telling them how to be “happy & positive.” LOL! Hold up. Doesn’t Barbie already have the perfect life? 🤣 so freaking funny. Anyways, this moment is a reminder for us all to fulfill our promise to our 6 year old self. So.... here goes me pretending 1500 of you are my Barbie dolls in my bedroom next weekend so I don’t 💩 my pants. JUST LAUGH AT ALL MY JOKES OKAY? Lol🤣 ⠀ But seriously, friend. Sometimes what we are BORN to do comes with massive resistance & intense fear. Feels counterintuitive, but fear is sometimes a sign that we are on the right track. Fear means you CARE. It’s a necessary evil. ⠀ God didn’t put you here to play small or hide your gifts. You were put here to do BIG THINGS. But to do big things you must be courageous. To do big things you must get comfortable being uncomfortable. ⠀ This silly game of life is damn short. It’s time to go do what you were born to do. Your soul knows what that calling is. Maybe it’s something you’ve always been great at. Maybe it’s something you’ve always known is inside you, but you’re afraid to admit it to the world. Whatever it is, you owe it to yourself to show up for your dreams & live the life you desire. Nothing less. 💜 ⠀ 3 questions I have for you, sis. What are you waiting for? Why not you? Why not now?🔥 #PaysToBeBrave
“Your little blog won’t make real money. You’re a great writer and all, but it’s going to be REALLY hard to make that an actual job, Ang. Just finish college & go get a real job.” ⠀ There I was. 22 years old. Sitting outside of my counselors office (sweating in anxiety before calling my parents to tell them what I just did ) after signing the papers to quit my dietetics program. Drowning in $100k of debt & working 2 side jobs, these were the words I kept hearing from friends and ex boyfriends. ⠀ My soul wasn’t born to color in the lines or follow the rules, so I was hungry to become my own boss + never have to show someone my fancy resume. BARF!🙄. I was determined to become successful with only a high school diploma. ⠀ Can you relate to this? I’m from a small town outside of Chicago where “wanting more” & starting an online business isn’t really the norm. I was supposed to be a lawyer. Or a teacher. I was “supposed” to graduate from college so I could get a “safe job.” ⠀ But one day a mentor of mine (host of a podcast who had no idea I existed ) shared this quote....and it forever changed my life. ⠀ So I’m sharing it with you today in hopes that it hits at least one woman who needs to hear this. ⠀ Why not you? ⠀ Chills immediately rushed down my Spine. What if this game of life is really just a game in which we make the rules? What if we get to write the story for our life? Why not me to be wildly successful & happy? Why not me to learn how to make money online? ⠀ So...here’s my question for you today, friend. ⠀ Why not you to launch the company? Why not you to be financially abundant? Why not you to be a badass mom AND successful business owner? Why not you to help thousands of women? Why not you to have a top rated podcast? Why not you to quit your job & make money doing what sets your soul on fire ? Why not you to be top of your NWM company? Why not you to become a bestselling author? Why not you to become a confident speaker? Why not you to be insanely happy and in an incredible relationship? Why not you to invent something that will change the world? 👇🏻 WHY NOT YOU? WHY NOT NOW? ❤️tell me below, friend! SEE YOU IN 1 WEEK AT #PAYSTOBEBRAVE
15 things I WISH someone would have told me before diving face first into entrepreneurship. Grab a cup of celery juice & lemme tell ya, friend.😉 👇🏻 1. It’s not the most knowledgeable woman that deserves to have success. It’s the hungriest. Grit + persistence outweighs smarts every. damn. time. I got C’s in every class in school, sis. But you better believe I work harder than anyone I know. If you want it more, you win. If you are brave enough to show up, you win. 2. Your loved ones & friends will sometimes not understand you. It’s painful, but this is YOUR life & YOUR legacy, not theirs. 3. Perfection is the enemy of success & profit. If you wait until it’s “perfect”, you’ll lose the opportunity. Your first version isn’t going to be (or supposed to be ) your best. 4. You have to ask for what you want. Ask for the job. Ask for the raise. Ask for the raise. No one is going to hand it to you. #RaiseYourHand 5. Ideas are easy. Everyone has them. Execution is the difference. “Hope” is not a plan. Action is. 6. You‘re going to feel major Imposter Gremlin. Pick up the damn phone anyway. Share your story anyway. Own your prices anyway. Start the business anyway. 7. You’re going to feel lonely at times. Attend events to meet other big-dreaming women. This is why I created #PaysToBeBrave 8. No one is going to love your business like you do. It’s your baby. It’s your labor of obsession. 9. Launching a business is like having a baby. The labor (first 2-3 years ) is sucky, but the end product is worth it. 10. Get comfy saying yes to things that you feel you aren’t “ready” for. Get comfy saying no to stupid shit that’s distracting you. 11. Your energy & health is your greatest asset. You can’t run a biz on en empty tank. 12. It’s not failure unless you give up. There’s no “failed businesses”, just feedback. 13. Don’t let Negative Nancy in your comments stop you from your dream. Your dream > buttholes on the Interwebs. 14. Cash is king. Running a biz is an art and a science. The art is your passion. The science is your business model. 15. You’re more resourceful + creative than you think. Don’t be so quick to throw in the towel. 👇🏻 LET’S HEAR YOURS!💫
Real talk? Launches can suck. Let me help it suck way less by helping you make moolah!💰Are you in a launch? Meet me in the comments & post your juicy launch q’s! I wanna help ya! ⠀ 1. Market research to verify that your product is in high demand. Don’t pull something out of your butthole, Karen. Is this product or service in need? Have people said this is something they actually WANT? Bonus points if you interview ideal clients on the phone & study their specific language. Survey your peeps & ask “If I created a X week course to help you achieve _______ would you be down?” Get specific! ⠀ 2. Have a clear + solution based title. The title of the course DOES matter. People don’t pull out their wallets unless it’s a KNOWN problem. Your offer needs to be niche specific as well. Yup. I used that niche word again. People buy solutions to specific problems, they don’t buy inspiration. What specific + TANGIBLE problem does your course/product solve? ⠀ 3. Sell the benefits, not the features. Susan doesn’t care that there are 16 modules, she wants to know if you’re going to get her results. Sell how it’s going to change her body or account etc, not the number of videos and the price. ⠀ 4. Human to human sales always wins. Show your face as much as possible. This means using IG stories/IGTV + sending voice and video messages in the DM. The DM is the new sales call. ⠀ 5. Curiosity Marketing is King. What content can you create that builds hype up around your product & also positions you as the expert? What content can you create that overcomes your dream customer’s objections? ⠀ 6. Social proof is everything. Showcase testimonials & who you’ve helped. Bonus points if you can get client videos!
READ THIS BEFORE YOU WANT TO GIVE UP, FRIEND. ⠀ “Should I just give up on this biz idea? Will this eventually work? Will I ever be able to leave my job? Am I even good enough/smart enough to do this?” ⠀ Ugh. The fear of the unknown sucks. But these feelings are normal. Scratch that. These feelings are NECESSARY. ⠀ Pulling my big girls pants up after falling on my face is the only reason I’m able to stand tall today. Believing it would work when no one believed in me shaped me into the resilient woman I am today. Massive rejection & debt taught me every single lesson I teach you today. I wouldn’t trade that for the world. ⠀ My first podcast episode had 70 downloads. The second 150. The next 300. Today I have 7 mil downloads. I didn’t know if it would work, but I kept showing up until it did. ⠀ My first webinar 5 girls signed up. (Well...4, not including my mom ). The next webinar 25 women. The next 90 women. I had no freaking idea how to do a sales pitch so I made $0. Today I host 2k+ people live webinars & generate 6 fig in 60 min. I didn’t know if it would work, but I kept showing up until it did. ⠀ My first course launch generated goose egg dollars. I launched it again & made $80. I launched it again & made $600. Today, I generate multiple 6 figures passively with digital products. I didn’t know if it would work, but I kept showing up until it did. ⠀ My first live event 36 women showed up. My next 85. My next 500. Today (💃🏼SEE YOU IN 2 WEEKS HOLY TITS 😮 ) 1500 women are flying in from around the WORLD to attend Pays To Be Brave. I didn’t know if it would work, but I kept showing up until it did. ⠀ The first physical wellness product Mike & I launched failed & left us in crazy debt. Today we built a 7 fig brand ( @mysoulcbd ) with zero paid Ads in less than 12 months. We didn’t know if it would work, but we kept showing up until it did. Here’s my reminder for you today, sis. Show up even when you don’t feel like anyone understands you or you feel like it’s not working. Show up even when you’re exhausted & want to throw in the towel. Show up even if only 1 person buys your product. Just. Keep. Showing. Up. 💜 How are you going to SHOW UP today? #PaysToBeBrave
Knowwhaaatttmmmsayin? 😛SHARE THIS IF YOU AGREE THAT AUNT CHERLY NEEDS TO MIND HER OWN BIZNASSSSS. Lol!
You know what I believe? I believe that little girls with big dreams change the f*cking world. So, this is a reminder for you moms to encourage your daughters to keep dreaming really big & for us all to remember the 6 year old girl in us who had FEARLESS + bold dreams. What was that dream? When I watch this, I see the most authentic Angie. I see 6 year old Angie talking to her stuffed animals in the living room & standing on a box with a toothbrush as a microphone. I see the 6 year old Angie who had Lemonade Stands so I could save up to get a chalkboard to teach my Barbies. I see the 6 year old Angie who was listening to Tony Robbins tapes on the way to middle school. ❤️ I see the 29 year old Angie who was poop her pants terrified before she walked onto that stage, but owned it regardless. “what if they don’t like me? I see the 29 year old Angie who wanted to puke moments before but put her passion to serve woman over her bullshit fears. “what if I’m not smart enough?” ❤️ 2 weeks out from the largest event of my career & the Fear Gremlins are the most intense I’ve ever experienced. I’ve never felt so aligned, yet so fucking terrified. I see the road ahead & I know it’s going to require a BRAVE version of Angie that I haven’t even tapped into yet. My next level is going to require CHOOSING courage over comfort. 9 years ago, I had $800 to my name & was drowning in $100k of debt. I’d call you batshit crazy if you told me I’d be running two 7 figure brands under 30 AND hosting a top podcast + international event with 1500+ women. 😮 9 years ago, I couldn’t “afford” to attend Tony Robbins, but I somehow found (scratch that, MADE ) a way to get a ticket. I ended up selling my car & using $10k of that to sit front row at Tony. My gut was telling me I couldn’t afford to NOT be in that room. And if it wasn’t for that live immersion, I wouldn’t be hosting Pays To Be Brave and serving you. That weekend gave me permission to DREAM. 🔥 And that’s exactly why I created #PaysToBeBrave. It’s my gift back to another woman. It’s gifting you a permission slip to dream really big. SEE YOU IN 2 WEEKS!🔥
wanna steal my 3 “S” system to sellable posts? SPRINT LIKE THE WIND & STEAL IT HUNNNNAAYY! 🏃🏼♀️ ⠀ Listen. I get it. ⠀ You want your dream customer commenting “OMG! I NEED YOUR HELP/I NEED YOUR PRODUCT” vs. your Aunt Cheryl commenting “your hair looks so cute, hunny.”🤦🏼♀️ ⠀ I gotchu, sis. I know you love your Auntie, but it’s time to use your IG to make MONEY. I mean, you’re running a business...right? I mean, you are using IG to attract clients... right? I mean, you’re not just farting around on here showing cat memes, right? God I hope not.😛 ⠀ After 10 years of creating content, I know what WORKS and what doesn’t. I’ve studied sales psychology up the bootyhole (technical term ) & this formula WORKS. It’s simple, yet insanely powerful. If you’re struggling to craft IG posts that convert to sales, this is for you. I’ve actually been teaching this ninja 3 step formula for YEARS & it’s helped thousands of entrepreneurs + network marketers take their posts from “blah” to sellable. It’s a skeleton that you can obviously customize a bit, but the foundation is the same. These 3 elements make an IG post SELLABLE. 👇🏻 1. You must have a HOOK. GRABBING ATTENTION IS EVERYTHING. If your first line sucks, you don’t have a chance to connect with the reader or make the sale. Boring doesn’t sell. Speak as if it’s your friend you’re texting who you want to help. Inject juicy questions + pain or pleasure points. What sentence would STOP HER SCROLL & make her say “omg... she’s talking to ME.”? ⠀ 2. People buy stories, they don’t buy products. Sales needs TRUST & trust comes from connection. Infuse your STORY into every 1-2 posts. What’s your macro & micro brand stories? How can we marry your story with your solution? What are memorable specific moments of your life that will RESONATE with the reader? ⠀ 3. Educate. Educate. Educate. This doesn’t have to be rocket science. Teach what you know, even if it’s simple. Share small actionable tips/valuable nuggets for your reader. What can someone walk away with? Ex: If you’re your niche is fat loss for moms, can you share specific supplement tips, meal swaps & fat loss hacks?
DUDE. SOMEBODY HAS TO SAY IT, SO I WILL. People don’t buy cute inspirational quotes. They can get that on Pinterest for free, Cheryl. #ToughLoveBecauseILoveYou ⠀ What they DO buy is a SOLUTION. What they do buy a specific tangible NICHE PRODUCT. And this is one of the biggest mistakes I see online. You’re an “inspo/empowerment coach”, but not actually selling anything TANGIBLE. Let me help you fix this! 👇🏻 ⠀ 1. WHO the heck you are speaking to? This. Is. Everything. What woman needs your help? What keeps her up at night? How are you her SOLUTION? Every single post and story should be INTENTIONALLY speaking to ONE PERSON. Solve your avatar’s problem like it’s your job, because it is. Stop trying to speak to everyone. Especially in life + wellness + beauty coaching, you need a NICHE. You immediately stand out when you have a niche! If you don’t know your niche, dive into my niche course...like yesterday. Legit. It will help you nail it FAST. Link in my bio, boo. 🔥 ⠀ 2. RESPOND to all comments/DM's. Unless you are Beyoncé or a massive influencer, it’s time to put in the work. IG and building a loyal audience is a RELATIONAL GAME. 💯. It’s the only game I’ve ever played & it ALWAYS pays off. No matter how small your audience, the only way you grow is by showing love to the first 10. ⠀ 3. YOUR BIO IS YOUR BUSINESS CARD. Does it sound like a Tinder dating profile? Your customer doesn’t care that you love your husband, have 3 cats & are a Sagittarius. Your bio is valuable real estate. Who are you speaking to? What specific problem do you solve? Put a “I help x achieve y statement.” TAKE OUT ALL THE FLUFF. It’s not about you, it’s about the customer. This is your space to show your confidence & credibility in your biz! ⠀ 4. 60/40 SPLIT OF EDUCATIONAL TO INSPIRATIONAL CONTENT. People don’t buy inspo, motivational videos or cute quotes. They buy a solution to a problem. You can eventually go broad, but start NARROW. Start niche. Become an expert at ONE THING & post educational content to increase engagement! Blend your story into that education and you are GOLDEN. Legit that’s the ninja recipe. 👇🏻 Let’s hear it, boo! Which of these is the hardest for you?
It’s your last year on this planet. What are you going to do? Who would you help? What would you say yes to? What story would you share? THIS MAY BE CONTROVERSIAL TO SAY BUT...👇🏻😮 ⠀ If you are reading this & you have a public platform (blog, show, book, brand, podcast, company ), or a “stage” to speak on, I feel (scratch that ) IT IS your *responsibility* to share your GIFT. I can feel it. You have a huge gift the world needs. ⠀ If you have ears listening and eyes watching, you have a responsibility. I don’t care how big/small your audience is. It’s a responsibility. ⠀ We forget the unmeasurable + transformational impact we have on our audience/strangers. We play small and hide behind absolutely stupid fears & bullshit excuses. ⠀ What do I know for sure? When I’m done on this beautiful Earth, I’ll be leaving on E. Like a rocket-ship, I’ll be completely empty from pouring my heart into you. ⠀ What’s my long term vision for my brand? (This 🚀 I am on is about to launch, so this scary question has been heavy on my heart. ) ⠀ Regardless of what happens, I know this one deep certainty. ⠀ I am here to exhaust myself in the pursuit of service. ⠀ I am here to show you what’s possible, when everyone else is saying you’re “dreaming too big”. ⠀ It’s my responsibility to help you. It’s my promise to show up for you. It’s my obsession to not give up on you. It’s my mission to blaze the trail. So you can confidently lead. ⠀ The ability to change lives, is the greatest (God given ) gift in this world. Someone is waiting for *exactly* what you have. What a waste to not share this, ya? ⠀ Even if it’s a messy, shaky and imperfect first draft, it’s time to share your story. ⠀ Post it. Press Live. Send it. Publish it (TODAY ). ⠀ You have a responsibility to be integrious, brave, selfless, transparent, consistent, show up with your whole damn heart & give *every* last ounce of 🚀 fuel. ⠀ This gift was given to you. But it’s not *for* you. Go set the world on fire, sis. 🔥 (TAG A BABE YOU ARE COMING TO PAYS TO BE BRAVE WITH! )
“YOU KNOW, ANGELA... MAJORITY OF ENTREPRENEURS FAIL. YOU REALLY SHOULD STOP THIS CRAZY TALK & JUST GO GET A SAFE JOB.” ⠀ That was the very last conversation I had with my counselor before I threw my chemistry books into her office garbage can & booked ass out of my Dietetics program. ⠀ $109k in debt + HELLA scared + confused, I didn’t know much, but I was certain that my dreams didn't require a stupid degree. A voice was telling me to leave. So I listened. ⠀ Dear Butthole Counselor: Quitting college & not listening to your shitty advice was one of the best decisions I’ve ever made. Oh & I make more money from 1 hour of paid speaking than you earn for an entire month of work. #DoYouNeedAJobLinda 😝. Thank you for showing me I don’t need to follow the traditional path. ⠀ 6 years ago I quit my fancy schmancy Marketing job on Michigan Ave after discovering I was highly allergic to wearing pants & cubicles. Oh, and my sucky boss, Frank told me that my ideas were “way too creative.” ⠀ Dear Butthole Boss: My “way too creative brain” built two 7 figure companies under 30. #DoYouNeedAJobFrank #SwipeUpToApply 😉 Thank you for showing me that my creativity is a gift. ⠀ Society & family said I was "supposed" to follow the rules. They said to get in line & to stop asking questions. ⠀ So... if you're reading this & feeling that 🔥, I know you. ⠀ Because I am you. ⠀ I know what it’s like to wake in the middle of the night with a burning desire to serve and an overwhelming passion to create. I have shared this addicting burn & curiosity since a little girl. This is your reminder that you can have & be ANYTHING you want. ⠀ And if this is you, I won't let you miss out on Pays To Be Brave. I just won’t do that to you. ⠀ Friends don't let friends miss out on incredible experiences or have FOMO. Life is way too short for that shit. ⠀ I created this event for YOU. The dreamer. The hustler. The go-getter. The fire starter. The ambitious woman who is hungry for more. ⠀ The tenacious woman who is ready to finally show up for what she wants in her business. ⠀ The unstoppable woman who is ready to leave comfortable for incredible. ⠀ GUYS!!! SEE YOU IN 3 WEEKS!!!🔥😭🙏#PaysToBeBrave
FAILING IS REALLY SCARY. ⠀ It’s straight up PYP (💩 Poop Your Pants ) terrifying. ⠀ It’s so crippling that the fear of “failure” is what keeps us at our “okay” job for too long. ⠀ It’s so scary that we stay in the average relationship, when we should leave for the crazy love we deserve. ⠀ It’s so terrifying that it prevents us from raising our hand & asking for what we want or sharing our story. ⠀ Fear of failure is the deepest of human fears. Which is silly, because... it’s not like any of us are making it out of this silly game of life alive, right? 😂#JustSaying #YoureGonnaDie #YOLO ⠀ Fear of failure is absolutely terrifying. But you know what’s even scarier? Waking up in 5 years at the same place you are today. Waking up in 5 years with the deep pain of regret. Waking up in 5 years and wondering “What if I would have?....” ⠀ Launched the product. Invested in the coach or course. Took the financial risk. Said yes to the opportunity. Sent the email. Raised your hand to go first. Booked the damn ticket. Attended the event. Left the shitty relationship. Said yes to public speaking. Said yes to the business idea. Showed up on camera. Pitched your story. Pitched your brand. Launched the podcast or YouTube channel. Didn’t wait until you felt “ready”. Published the book. Posted the vulnerable post. Told your butthole boss to suck it. Asked for the raise. Quit your job. Started your side hustle. ⠀ So, let’s play a game, friend. What BRAVE act do you need to take this week?
+ not moving your body enough, sis! P.S. I talked about task switching on today’s Brain Hacks podcast episode! Did you listen? WHICH ONE IS KILLING YOUR CREATIVITY, SIS? ✨👏🏻💰🔥 @shannanmonson
HI (NAKIE ) FROM MY SHOWER! 👋🏻 This is where the magic happens. All my epic business ideas come to me naked. Lol. And for the last 10 years I’ve been dreaming REALLY BIG on my shower sticky notes. And I will KEEP DREAMING on my sticky notes for the next 10+ years. 💛 ⠀ 10 years ago ($100k in debt + in my 600 sq ft dorm room ) I had this “silly idea” to press post on my very first blog. I had no flippen idea what I was doing. I just knew I rather help my readers than be in a Chemistry class. After a lot of face planting, I generated over 7 figures in digital products with zero paid Ads or any complicated funnels. Today: I’ve created one of the most engaged, ambitious and epic female entrepreneur audiences. It’s insane to think this all began with just 1 reader. 😭💛 ⠀ 4 years ago I had this “silly idea” to plug in a mic & launch a podcast. I had no idea what I was doing. I wondered who the hell would even listen to my “little show”. I just knew I had to share my voice & help women. I felt this (terrifying ) burn in my belly to press record. My Google Search bar became my best friend & my business coach. Today: I have a Top 100 podcast with 7 million unique downloads. #StartMessy ⠀ 2 years ago I had this “silly idea” to create the most badass female personal development + business event. I had no idea what the hell I was doing or how the heck to host a live event. I just knew I wanted to create what didn't exist. Today: 1500 of you incredible women are attending Pays To Be Brave 2019 in a few weeks! WHAT THE WHAT IN THE BUTT!😭 ⠀ 2 years ago my brother @officialmikelee and I launched @mysoulcbd in my small LA apartment. We labeled & shipped every single order from the kitchen table. We didn’t know everything about CBD, but we were hungry to learn. I didn’t have a fancy business degree (I dropped out of college ), but I did research until I found the answers. We didn’t quit when things got financially scary or stressful. Today: We built a multiple 7 fig brand in under a year and are helping thousands of humans to heal from anxiety & pain.🙏 ⠀ Reminder, sis. No, your idea isn’t silly or stupid. What *is* silly is not acting on it. 🔥 #ReadyIsALie #PaysToBeBrave
2 hours before this picture was taken I was puking + blacking out in the hotel bathroom. 🤮. The pain is hard to put into words, but it was intense beyond belief. My period cramps were so unbearable that I told my boyfriend he may have to take me to the hospital. It was so intense that I wasn’t sure if I was going to be able to walk, none the less, speak on stage. Ladies, who else has felt this intense of period pain? ⠀ 😭This painful episode has happened a few times in my life (still trying to diagnose the cause - will touch on my health later - not endometriosis! ), but never right before an event or work. I literally prayed to God while my face was over the toilet. “YO, HOMIE! PLEASE GIVE ME RELIEF FOR JUST 3 HOURS SO I CAN GO SPEAK TO THESE WOMEN! PUHHLEASE!”. Fast forward a few hours & I felt a sense of relief the moment I stepped on stage 🙏. It was incredible. When I stepped on stage & tapped into my purpose, the pain subsided. I brought all my passion & heart to that stage and realized how resilient I really am. It taught me a lot about my ability to bounce back. Safe to say, I learned a lot about pain & my ability to handle STRENGTH on Saturday. Who knew I could dance my ass off right after puking!? 😂 ⠀ LADIES, this is a reminder that we are POWERFUL beyond measure. We are so much stronger than we give ourselves credit and our bodies are fucking incredible. I’m in awe at what our bodies can create and handle. We were born to get back up. We were born to be courageous. We were born to be resilient. We were born to be mentally + physically strong. P.S. If you’d had a baby, you CAN build a business. PERIOD. You’ve already accomplished the hardest thing in the world, sis. We are warriors.💜 Do you agree!? ✨🙏
Ready. Is. A. Lie. 🔥#PaysToBeBrave #RaiseYourHand #ReadyIsALie
🎤✨HOLY GRANDMA’S TITS! PAYS TO BE BRAVE IS 4 WEEKS AWAY! SAY WHAAAA!?! SEE YOU BABYGRANDMAS SOON!✨🎤 ⠀ Sis! If you’ve watched me speak on stage you know I DANCE AROUND & don’t let you leave the room without feeling unstoppable & shaking your booty. I’m 5’2, but I bring the energy + sass of 6’5. 😂 I also need to be COMFY when I speak or else I freeze up. I like to feel like I’m your business bestie pumping you up in my living room, ya know? ⠀ Most speakers wear fancy heels & dresses. After years of speaking (and now professionally speaking ), I realized I didn’t want to dress like the other female speakers. I realized I really love jeans, a crop top & being barefoot 😂🤷♀️. It what makes me feel the most Angie...and that’s what’s important. Flats + jeans makes me feel calm and grounded. Ya feel me? What about you? Are you a dress and heels girl? Or a flats and jeans girl? ⠀ Here’s the truth. Authenticity breads confidence, so the most powerful thing you can do is show up as YOU. I used to be insecure that I preferred cute sneakers/jeans over dresses & heels. I compared myself to other female speakers & felt like I didn’t belong. Who would pay me to speak in my jeans & sneakers? Fast forward & I’m now being paid (very well ) to speak, wearing whatever the hell I want. Why? Because I bring insane passion, value & authenticity to every stage. ⠀ I loved being silly with my galpals @loriharder & @drmorganfrancis today! DUDE. I fricken love that one of the most fun parts of my job is traveling & hanging with my epic speaker friends! HOW IS THIS MY LIFE AND JOB?! #DoesntFeelLikeWork I’m so darn grateful I got to rock the stage today at the @powerhouse_women event! @llindseyschwartz you put on an INCREDIBLE EVENT. 🔥Thank you to every single BRAVE woman who raised her hand during my Fear Gremlin exercise today. It was an honor to serve you, challenge you and motivate you! #PAYSTOBEBRAVE #RAISEYOURHAND
I was $115k in debt, living in my 700sq ft apartment & hustling 2 jobs to build the brand you see today. I had no Plan B. #AllergicToCubicles 🤦🏼♀️ DUDE. The beginning of this entrepreneurial journey wasn’t SEXY. 👇🏻 I was STRUGGLING to pay off my 6 figure credit card debt and pay my 2K rent each month. I hustled in my car on lunch breaks & at night to create content. My car literally became my office where I took sales calls & recorded videos. I stayed up late to study online marketing & respond to every single one of my followers. P.S. I STILL do this 10 years later because I care so deeply about you. And YOU are the reason I do this work. Hint: answer yo peeps! 😜 ⠀ Listen, sis. The beginning of building your business isn’t super fun, easy or glamorous. And that’s OKAY. It took me 10 YEARS to have the income & life I have today. I was so broke once that I SOLD A FLIPPEN CAR TO ATTEND TONY ROBBINS. Yup. That’s how bad I wanted to grow and learn. 🔥 ⠀ And something that I want to help you with today is your LANGUAGE. I read my inbox. And it’s 626 money mindset blocks a day. I love you, so I can’t not help you. I smile, because that used to be ME. I fell into the victim trap where I told myself I would be broke & stuck forever. I made excuses for why I couldn’t invest & why the business wasn’t ever going to work. I told my friends and family I was “broke & poor.” 2 words I would never ever speak into existence today. I FOUGHT FOR MY LIMITATIONS😭. ⠀ It wasn’t until I realized that my words had the POWER to change my life that I quit saying shitty disempowering language like: 👇🏻 I can’t do it. I can’t afford it. I don’t have the money. That’s for rich people. I hope. I’ll manifest it & hope it happens. 🤦🏼♀️ Maybe. I wish. If only. One day. She just got lucky. Other people get to do that. Next year I’ll do it. Once I know more. I’m not ready. I will wait until I’m older. I’ll wait until I have the money. I don’t know yet. ⠀ How many of these are you saying? Let’s hear it, below! 🔥👇🏻 If there’s one thing I know for sure it’s this. Our beliefs about money dictate our actions. And our actions change our entire life. 💜
#AskAngie: “How do I get out of a creative rut!? I need to take action!” 👉🏻Successful people ask themselves better questions. Period. How many of these are you asking yourself? Where are you feeling stuck, friend?
YO! Want some of my tips for growing your PODCAST? Press play, sis! Was this helpful?! Let me know, below! Also, if you want to be featured, DM me a video of your business question! Love you!⚡️👇🏻
BEYONCÉ POOPS. 💩😯 ⠀ Friend. I’m not farting around. Write that on your shower sticky notes tonight. Take a pic and tag me. I’m going to write it too! #Twins ⠀ Sorry if your hubby thinks you have lost your damn mind. Lol! 😛 ANGIE LEE MADE ME DO IT, BABE! 😂 ⠀ Here’s the dealio. If one of your Fear Gremlins is the Perfectionist Gremlin, then this is for YOU. And dude... I’ll be honest, he’s one of my major gremlins. ugh. He sucks. And is in my ear every damn day before I press post. ⠀ I get it. You’re afraid you’re not “ready” or “smart enough”. You’re afraid to post the video or launch the course. You think your work isn’t good enough & other people have the answers/are more expert. You’re afraid you need to learn more before you can launch/sell or talk about your product. You think success is for “other people”. ⠀ My reminder for you? Beyoncé wasn’t born Beyoncé. She BECAME Beyonce. Oh and she 💩 , just like you. ⠀ Your dream isn’t impossible & your role models aren’t anything really that special. ⠀ HERE IS THE DEALIO: ⠀ 1. It’s selfish to not sell. Yup. It’s a disservice if don’t share your solution. And your product isn’t about you, it’s about your customer. If your product changed your life, you MUST share that with other women. 2. Stop apologizing for selling. Without sales, you’d be living in a hut & not eating food. Sales is how the world goes round. It’s not icky. “Sorry if this is weird. Sorry I’m not trying to sell you.” Let’s cut that lingo. You have a gift, not a burden. ⠀ 3. A “no” doesn’t mean you suck. It just means you go pitch 5 more people. ⠀ 4. You don’t have to be perfect to sell. You don’t have to have all of the answers, you just need to practice. Selling is like fitness & you have to show up to the gym every day. #ReadyIsALie. ⠀ 5. Create your Sales Alter Ego. This is the brave woman inside you. We all have her. She’s the version of you that raises her hand & walks into a room like she owns it. Give her a name. It may feel weird at first, but it’s healthy to tap into an alter ego. ⠀ My homework for you tonight? Jump onto your stories and PRACTICE SELLING WITH CONFIDENCE. You down!? ⠀ It’s time to own your shit. 💩#BeyoncePoops @beyonce
I stepped off stage last year at the end of Pays To Be Brave and hugged my best friend with tears. “I’m not sure all the places this career will go, but there’s one thing I know for sure. I’m going to do that for the rest of my life. No matter what I do, I’m going to give humans joy & hope.” ⠀ My first event was intense. It was a labor of love & THE hardest I had ever worked in my career. It’s matured me. It taught me courage. It made me realize how deeply I care about helping humans. It made me realize my purpose. ⠀ DUDE. If you would have told me 2 years ago that I’d be hosting a sold out live event (that I thought of in my flippen shower nakie ) with 1500+ women, I wouldn’t have believed you. No way! ME!?!? I’d think you were absolutely NUTS.💜 ⠀ Pays To Be Brave is my baby and it’s surreal to see it growing up so damn fast. I haven’t had time to even breathe & really take it all in. #MomLife ? 😭 ⠀ You see the flashy stage lights & the cute promo videos, but what you don’t see is my incredible team working their ass off to make this all happen. What you don’t see is the months of planning. What you don’t see is how many tears of overwhelm & sleepless nights this event has brought me. ⠀ I’ve never felt so aligned, yet so exhausted 😂. But that’s what this game of life is about, sis. Exhausting yourself in the pursuit of your purpose. ⠀ Doing what you’re called to do, no matter how terrifying or “not ready” you feel. It’s insane what happens when you keep following the butterflies and showing up for your dreams. I’ve been called to do this work and my promise is to bring you every ounce of my heart & passion into that room in 5 weeks. ⠀ This event isn’t for me, it’s for you. SEE YOU SOON! 🔥 #PaysToBeBrave #paystobebrave2019 #RaiseYourHand
