Schools out, summers here and what better way to celebrate than going on a holiday 🌴
I always recommend putting 20% of your income aside for the future. Taking loans out for holidays, trips or gifts can be a slippery slope that leads to debt and the inability to save money. Spend wisely through the holidays 💛

Yesterday I shared a little video tip that I have noticed business owners especially start up or new entrepreneurs struggle with... I had so many people asking me to elaborate so here it goes 🌱
Hosting a competition is a great way to increase Brand exposure and and target audiences. .
The one problem I was noticing is that most wanted to give their profits away as main prizes 💁🏼♀️ #no .
Here’s why >>> When you are a #smallbusinessowner your profits aren’t so high and you don’t necessarily have capital to give away. Right.. Money that could be used to reinvest- but then some may say is this not reinvesting in your business?? Well yes but how about you do it without adding so much pressure to your already stressed out schedule... .
Running a competition shouldn’t cost you the big bucks- in fact if you go about it in a really creative way it will save you money. 🌱 .
Here’s HOW 👇🏻
. •COLLABORATION .
Yup you have at least 5 people within your niche that could partner with you in developing one amazing high valued competition prize. .
This give you access into their network of followers > More organic Reach #hello & it allows you to grow your partnerships. Helping each other makes life easier! .
Keep me posted on your upcoming competitions 🤗 .
Happy to be in town together to celebrate two special birthdays - @howellnatalie and @maloryleigh. We had a wonderful dinner at @j.d.hoyts. We couldn’t resist the decadent grilled bananas with vanilla ice cream topped with brandy caramel. Happy Birthday Natalie and Malory! You are amazing.
Consult not your fears but your hopes and your dreams. Think not about your frustrations, but about your unfulfilled potential. Concern yourself not with what you tried and failed in, but with what it is still possible for you to do.

Забей на то, что думают другие. Это ничего не изменит в твоей жизни. Намного важнее, чтобы ты разобрался сам с собой.

Winter is my favourite season ⛄️ and @thenewicon_official are my fav hypoallergenic + fashionable + affordable jewelry 💎
Leaving home after college was one of the hardest things I’ve ever done. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
During my first three months away (which was the longest I had ever been away from family), I was so homesick that I flew home in the middle of a business trip just to be with them for a weekend. It’s been ten years since, and though it’s gotten easier to be away, I still miss them all the time
I used to think life was either good or hard, black or white. But I’m starting to see it is full of grey, nuance, and mystery. Life can be beautiful, full of wonder and adventure, and it can also be painful and difficult — full of expectation and disappointment all at once. We hold that tension daily. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
One of my aunts has lived overseas for over 30 years. She has made difficult, and at times painful judgement calls about when to come home. Years ago she told me the best thing for my family was for me to be living fully in the calling that God had placed on my life. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
If God’s best for me is to be in New York City, then it’s also God’s best for my family—even though we miss each other terribly. His blessing for one person doesn’t short change another. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
In the moments where I struggle with being away from home or navigating new family dynamics, I remember her words, and they comfort me.
Maybe part of learning to be a healthy adult is learning to hold the tension and be honest with each other when we feel it. It means having grace and understanding for not only myself but also for my family as we move into new spaces. It takes courage for anyone to step into the unknown, and there will be mistakes made, feelings hurt, disappointment felt.
For now I feel like I have more questions than answers. But I’m learning to be ok with the grey, and loving my family as we navigate new territory with each step we take.
