I know I just said this two days ago but seriously: Thank you all so much for your support - every like, comment and share, every monster adoption, every message cheering me on. ❤️❤️❤️ You empower me to be able to live my dream, and I can never thank you enough for that! I am BLOWN away by how quickly the Monstertines sold out last night! 🎉 There is just *one* Small Monstertine still available, and a few packs of Valentines. I'll be working on packing up all of the Monstertines & will have them all shipped by Monday at the latest! Thank you all, so much!!! 😘
Last, but definitely not least in our "Meet the leadership" bit is Julie Scott!
Julie is our Co-Founder and co-Executive Director! Among so many other roles, she handles our expansion strategies and oversees finances. She is constantly crusading to help communities realize that post-secondary access will improve a litany of modern society's challenges.
When we asked our Director of Strategic Partnerships, Crystal Burch, to name her favorite thing about Julie, she had this to say —
“I love that Julie is fiercely passionate, bold, and giving! When Julie believes in you, you can’t help but believe in yourself. She inspires and pushes everyone around her to dream bigger and be better. “ ⭐️✨💫💥
Happy Friday! We realized we haven’t introduced ourselves in 2019. So hi! I’m Amy! 👋🏼 Four and a half years ago I quit my full time job working for a well known multiple 7 figure coach.
I wasn’t freelancing on the side, I didn’t have any potential clients or a back up plan.
In fact, the first business that I started a few years before failed.
What was I thinking?? Who am I to start another business when my first business failed so hard?
But this guy. My husband Bryan, he pushed me to do it. He saw something I didn't see.
Because he heard me talking about all the things I wanted.... I wanted my own business so I could have the freedom to do work I love.
I wanted the time and money to travel.
I wanted to be able to go see friends and family whenever I wanted.
And let's be honest... I never understood the whole 9-5 thing anyway.
If I can get my work done faster why do I have to sit in an office until 5?
And 2 weeks of vacation a year definitely wasn't going to cut it.
So we sat down and talked it through... And I put my notice in.
I wish I could tell you how easy it all came together and that I went from zero to 6 figures in 30 days but that's not what happened -- not even close.
It wasn't until my second year in business that I finally hit 6 figures (and yes, I felt like I was behind because it took me more than 90 days which is ridiculous). I spent the first few months just trying to figure out what to do first and how to get in front of the right people.
Eventually, I got it together. And I finally got my first client. $2400 to run ads for a launch (that was more than I made in a MONTH in my previous gig). Then almost 4 years later to the day of booking that first client -- Bryan put in his 2 week notice.
In August he came to work with me.
This is something we've talked about for so long. And to be honest, it still doesn't feel like it's really happened.
The last 6 months have been awesome. We’re so exicted about what we have in store for this year. If you've been putting off FB Ads or you're ready to ake your ads to the next level - let's chat! #SocialLabMarketing
Happy Birthday Christia!
Ladies & Love wouldn’t be the same without you, we are so lucky to have such a sweet spirit with us every month!! __
Thank you for being so real, genuine, and kind. We can’t wait to celebrate with you!!
“We're connected, as women. It's like a spiderweb. If one part of that web vibrates, if there's trouble, we all know it, but most of the time we're just too scared, or selfish, or insecure to help. But if we don't help each other, who will?” ― Sarah Addison Allen
Have you ever quit something in your life because you thought it was the right thing to do? But then a few months later God sends you this big HUGE sign that you messed up! I mean, I really thought God wanted me to quit, but I think it was me overpowering His voice because I was scared of where this journey would take me. I was scared of really trying to do everything I needed. I was scared it would be too hard and too stressful for me. When I think about it, I’ve been through much harder things in my life than sending few messages out or posting on social media. I mean, God doesn’t call the qualified anyway, He calls the unqualified and equips them along the way. .
Life is constantly changing and sometimes we get so wrapped up in the “what if’s” of life that we never take any risks to be who God intended us be. We don’t trust His plan for our life. Instead, we change the course because we let our own fears get in the way. .
Well, I’m ready to break up with my fears. I gave up on coaching actively a few months ago because I thought it wasn’t for me, and I thought I felt better for a little while. No “pressure” of posting daily or sharing my life. But now that a few months have past I feel empty all over again. I don’t like myself. I feel like I’ve gone back to who I was before coaching and honestly I can’t stand myself. I can’t stand the mom I am right now. I feel lost and like I’m not working towards anything.
I’ve grown too much this past year and a half that I can’t go back to who I was before. That girl is long gone because she wasn’t “living”. She was constantly controlled by her emotions, her anxiety, and fears. .
When I started coaching it took me really far out of my comfort zone like to the point it made me sick. But I signed up anyway and I did my best but when it was time to step up my game I shut down again. I can’t tell you enough how important is for me to have something of my own. I’ve been beyond blessed to be able to be a stay at home mom and it’s what I’ve always wanted but I need and love being a part of something bigger. I love the community of women I get to work with and the support from other stay at home moms. There is a connection

Social media tends to get a bad reputation for only showing what you want people to see versus not being the “real” you! Despite that rep, personalization and honesty have proven to be most effective in growing a brand (even if you are the brand). There are ways to improve both and fight that rep.

Doing what you like is freedom. Liking what you do is happiness. - Frank Tyger
Are you free? Are you happy? You can create a life you love, a business you love. You can choose and create that freedom and happiness. It IS all within reach.
Keep dreaming, keep reaching.
What if we all made a point to impact just ONE person a day. It doesn’t take much to make someone feel special. Why not let somebody know how amazing they are today? Just imagine how a few simple words of encouragement could totally turn someone’s day around. It only takes a minute of your time. Why not do it right now???⠀

So you could get high or you could get low
You could stay young or you could grow old
You could go hard or you could go home
You could live life or you could just fold
So I, hope that it was worth it when you was searched and you found what glitters ain't gold
And I, knew I wasn't perfect but I know that I made it all on my own🖤

CBD seems to be such a buzz word lately. We see new brands coming to market every single day.⠀
However, with the increase of brands in this unregulated market, how do you know if you’re choosing high quality product that you can trust? What exactly is CBD? What product is best for you? My endo-cannabinoid what?⠀
Education is something that is severely lacking in this new market y’all. However, there is one #CBD brand that is making waves. @rootedlyfe is female founded by strong group of #girlbosses . @rootedlyfe only produces the highest quality products. ⠀
No j u n k. No b s.⠀
They also place a heavy emphasis on education. If their products are not right now you, they will tell you. They are truly looking to help people. ⠀
RL is a brand we t r u s t.⠀

Happy Friday!!!! Going into the weekend feeling great! 💪💕 My heart is so full and I feel so blessed to be where I am in life ♥️ Really looking forward to crushing my goals and helping others with theirs ❤️💫🙌 .
Mindset is everything. If you set your mind on a goal you CAN accomplish it. Forget the lies that life, people and experiences have taught you. “Where there’s a will there’s a way.” Now let’s go crush it! Happy Friday! 📸: @toniestes

SHOOT YOUR SHOT 🎯 Walking away from anything with regret is one of the worst feelings ever! Take the chance EVERY 👏🏽 SINGLE 👏🏽 TIME. 👏🏽 You have all you need in you to succeed. Whatever you don’t have YET is already being made available to you. You won’t be given a vision without being given the necessary tools to finish it. That doesn’t mean you won’t take some L’s or have a hard time along the way. Those moments exist to test your faith, challenge your grace, measure your passion + expand your hustle. Remember even if it doesn’t work out as you hoped, there’s always a lesson to get you through + to your next opportunity/blessing. So you got this Sis! 💪🏽 Take that leap of faith + make your first move TODAY! 👑

In a world where you can be anything....
Be a game changer.
Be a difference maker.
Be an impact leader.
Just start with yourself first, there is no telling what difference you can make. The sky’s the limit.
What’s your game-changing plan?
🙊🤣 The thought that goes through every woman’s head before she decides... no MORE soul depleting work. No more being caged in. No more limits. I want freedom. I wanna make a difference. I wanna do me AND be financially well compensated for it. And I will back that up with focus, dedication and commitment. HELLO online coaching!! Love to all my wise women out there!! ☺️💖🙏🏼 #lightworkerboss⠀
