Working from home was the best decision I’ve ever made


I’ve had what feels like a gazillion jobs over the years but the reality is that it’s only ever been 8 or 9, and I struggled with not being able to stick with ONE job. But something I’ve realized over the years, some of us aren’t wired that way.

Some of us cannot be tied down to a job like that because we get bored.

Some of us have a little bit of an issue with authority.

Some of us would prefer to wake up when we wake and mosy on over to our desk or couch to get to work.

I am that kind of a person.

But more than anything else I am a mom and this is the one “job” I’ve held the longest (go me!). I’ve always enjoyed being a stay-at-home mom if you will. I’ve also always been a doer, I can’t just sit on the couch, watch TV and eat bonbons.

And over the years I’ve explored different ideas, followed opportunities and then I became a special-needs mom, which meant (to me) that I had to find something that I could do from home so I could be present when my kids needed me.

And here we are today!

And I also know lot’s of my friends have gone down a similar path and maybe you are ready to figure out how to create a living being at home with your kiddos, or while drinking coffee sitting on your deck.

We all had different reasons for starting down this path.

  • Escape corporate and find more satisfying work
  • Find jobs that allowed us to work from anywhere so we could travel more
  • Discover flexibility so we could be there for our families when they needed us
  • Identify any skills (other than cleaning and laundry) that could provide some disposable income.

Whatever the reason that brought us here, now we’re looking for work + life balance and how to be more focused on our work so we can spend more time with our family that we dreamed of.

If it sounds tough, I have something to make it easier for you.

 

What if I told you someone had already put together a carefully vetted package to get you up to speed on finding real work-at-home opportunities (AND making your work + life balance better once you’re working from home)?

Well, you can stop looking! It’s here…And I gotta tell you, that I wished something like this existed 15 years ago when I started to venture into being in business for myself. But there’s always something to learn and I am excited that this bundle exists to help people like you and me, become the CEO of our lives.

You really are only one decision away to a completely different life.

  • Create simple work routines to fit your family’s schedule.
  • Master the art of squeezing more work into the time you have.
  • Identify your marketable skills and differentiate yourself from the competition.
  • Turn your business & entrepreneurial dreams into a reality.
  • Learn legal and accounting best practices to keep you worry-free.
  • Develop clear work and home life boundaries, so you can plan your days for success.

You deserve to do the work you love. You shouldn’t have to wait any longer to finally find the work freedom you’ve been looking for, or the work + life balance you’ve been waiting to achieve. Because seriously, some of us really have to forge our own path. And just think you can show other people what IS possible!

Rebel Kickstart Accountability & Group Coaching Community

Are you taking action, staying productive towards your goals?

How’s that going for you?

Do you have the clarity you need for your monthly action plan

Or

You have an idea for a goal, kinda started taking action but then either procrastinated or just well didn’t do the things you needed to be doing?

I’ve been exactly in that spot and have often procrastinated on something or I’ve said “one day”, “when the time is right”, “someday” … and in the end, I actually well didn’t do anything about it.

And what followed is the negative self-talk about how I am such a flake and no one believes me I will do these things when I don’t even believe them myself.

And in recent years that has changed for me because I have absolute clarity on why I do anything in life or in business, I have a plan that pushes me just enough out of the comfort zone, so I don’t freak you and I do the work to make it happen.

For me, there have been some key elements to go from wasting time to doing and making it happen. And here’s the thing, since I have struggled with clarity, planning, and doing in the past, I know that others may be facing the same challenges.

Welcome to Rebel Kickstart

I’ve been talking about creating a vision, planning and taking action for a really long time but felt maybe there’s something missing, such as accountability, group coaching and receiving the knowledge YOU want.

Rebel Kickstart is designed with the community in mind because this is where support, accountability, and feedback are the most valuable.

And there’s something about a community that plans, works and learns together:

Comfort zones are being pushed.

Things are getting done.

Goals get achieved.

And for the life of me, I can’t think of a reason why someone wouldn’t want this unless living in the realm of excuses feels good.

My favorite books that I’ve read or listened to in 2017!

Only a generation of readers will spawn a generation of writers – Steven Spielberg

Making time to read can at times be challenging for me, so I added audiobooks to my arsenal of how I obtain information.

The 5-Second Rule definitely has been a must read and I highly recommend it, if you are stuck in procrastination mode. It can really transform your life and your work through one simple action called the 5-second Rule. Mel Robbins get’s into the heart of the matter for sure.

The Success Principles generated new visions for myself and cemented what I wanted to be, do and have in my life and the kind of work that I do. I listened to this book when going on my walks and often found myself in tears because the stories that Jack Canfield shared reached the core of my soul.

How I raised myself from Failure to success in Selling – while the book was a little dry at times for my liking, there was some valuable information I was able to gain. If you’re in business, then selling can be the most challenging thing on the planet, especially if you don’t want to feel like a can of Spam. It highlights the message of there is an art of conversation that happens, by asking why.

I hope I screw this up – I didn’t know what to make of this at first but through listening to Kyle Cease, I learned to appreciate his message and even his humor. There is no right or wrong answer to do this life and screwing things up can often lead you to the path you want to be on in the first place.

Unfu*k Yourself … and it was and wasn’t what I expected. Certainly, I expected the cursing but I didn’t expect to hear the Scottish voice to be so … I don’t know… it was funny and real and true. It was like the wakeup call I needed and just keep doing my thing – whatever that may be.

Rising Strong is what I am currently listening too and only a few chapters in, it already resonates and affirms that I am on the path I want to and need to be on.

The only physical book I read was Expert Secrets by Russel Brunson and I love the way he talked about stepping into leadership. Just prior to reading his book, I read She Means Business and there was a definite correlation between the two books for me. Sometimes we don’t see the leader we are until we are ready to.

What one book has changed your life that is not on this list and I need to be listening to or reading?

8 Steps to elevating your life

8 Steps to elevating your life

The 2018 Theme for Rebel Shine is YOU RISE ABOVE

And of course, that means talking about how you can elevate your life!

Your life doesn’t have to be what it is now if you make the decision to create change because that is all it takes!

Decide what you really want and how you want your life to feel like. Acknowledge your dreams and passions and choose to follow them.

Decide to not be afraid to speak your truth! Speak up and speak out – for yourself and for those who don’t have a voice. Speak from your soul with clarity and purpose.

Decide to listen to your inner voice and intuition in your life. Don’t judge or think too far ahead and be present with an open mind.

Decide to get back up any time you fall. We all fall down sometimes, it’s life but that isn’t an invitation to stay down, feeling defeated. Instead, dig deep into your inner strength.

Decide who will be part of your life and who won’t be. You will have a hard time elevating your life when you allow negative ninnies, naysayers, and doubters into your inner circle. So choose wisely who you spend time with.

Decide to let go of pain and anger because it doesn’t serve you going forward. In fact, it will hold you back like you’ve been shackled to an invisible cage. It’s not about forgiving those that hurt you, but freeing yourself!

Decide to make time for knowledge! I am not saying don’t watch TV but spend 30-minutes or 1-hour learning. You can still watch TV but perhaps have this at the bottom of the priority list.

Decide to look forward and not backward. You can’t create the life you want and elevate you when you keep looking back at all that happened. Learn from your past and use that knowledge to go up and forward.

Everything you want to be, do and have lies within yourself and making the decision to choose differently!Click To Tweet

Soul Approved: How to unleash yourself to have an awesome life

Soul Approved: How to unleash yourself to have an awesome life

If there is one thing I know all too well, it’s the feeling of the box getting smaller and the air is getting tighter. It’s becoming unmanageable to move and breathe within your space that you call life.

And it all comes from being chained to a life you think you are supposed to create because it’s what you should do.

  • You should do this for a living because it’s the safe way
  • You should act and behave this way or that way because it’s the nice way
  • You should put yourself first because everyone else is more important

But are not feeling like you’re suffocating and unable to move in the direction you want to go?

Yes, you have the option to stay chained in the conformity of your box where it feels cozy and safe – but at what cost?

Do you really want to look back at your life and say

  • I wish I did __________
  • I’m sad I didn’t _______
  • I regret not to ________

You’re tired and wonder what the heck this life is all about.

And the truth (it might hurt a little)

You’ve been chained to someone else’s idea of a life!

And the time has come for you to break free!

It’s time to unleash yourself!

The time has come that you stop

  • Being afraid of failure
  • Believing you’re not good enough
  • Talk yourself out of the things you want to do
  • Keeping your thoughts to yourself
  • Living a life designed by someone else

Deep down you know that you

  • Have incredible ideas
  • Have a voice that matters
  • Have to step out of the comfort zone

It isn’t enough to just exist anymore because you know there’s so much more to life than live in a box of shoulds.

No doubt unleashing yourself will be uncomfortable – all growing pains are – as you start being the person you’ve been all along but too afraid to share you with the world.

Your life can change at a moments notice.

Anytime you get in the car, you *could* get into an accident and yet here you still getting in the car every day.

So why not face your fears and do what you to want to do and start being true to yourself?

What do you have to lose?

Nothing!

Because you aren’t going to be further ahead if you fail but you are going to be wiser through the lessons that emerge through your willingness to put yourself first for a change.

Life is a journey and you will die one day – this is a fact!

So why not make this the best journey you can imagine by finally breaking free from the chains of conformity and embrace who you are?

When you’re ready to have an awesome life, it’s time to break those chains!

Remember, you’re one decision away!

Cheers,
Petra
