Rebel Kickstart Accountability & Co-Working 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, co-working sessions 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.

How to stop waiting and start taking action

How to stop waiting and start taking action

Have you ever considered what getting clear on your dreams does for you?

Or what one simple action will do for your life?

You have the vision that is so far out of reach and you wonder every single day when will your dream turn into reality.

You plan, plan and then plan some more waiting for perfection and just the right time. You keep analyzing every single detail about your dream. You keep talking yourself out of it and your doubts and fears tell you that it just cannot happen.

I’m going to tell you something and you may not like it, but the right time will never come into reality.

And now I am going to tell you that you CAN turn your dreams into reality, with one single thing.

Taking Action!

Let go of fear and self-doubt Click To Tweet

Believe in you and in your dream.

But how can I take action when I don’t know what to do?

You already have a plan right? So, now create some action steps to go with the plan.

Brainstorm a list of things you will need to do.

Let’s say you want to start a business because you want the freedom.

What will you need to get started?

Create a checklist of what you will need to do.

Do those things!

Or maybe you want to make more art?

What art do you want to do? Decide it!

Purchase your supplies.

Make art.

Oh but I don’t have the time.

Hogwash!

We all have the time when we make it a priority. Click To Tweet

You look at all the things you are doing now and decide what it is that no longer fits in your priority list, let that go and then voila, you now have time to do that thing you want to do.

Just maybe you are saying, but I want to be healthier.

Define what being healthier means to you.

Is it eating less junk food or cooking more meals from scratch or both. Is it exercising and moving your body more often?

Be clear on what that means for you and then write it down.

Now write all the things you can do to help you feel and be healthier.

You have just created a list of all the things you can do to take action.

When we start to overanalyzing and make excuses i.e. it’s not perfect enough or I don’t have time you are being a disservice to your own life and your own dream.

6 Books I think everyone ought to read

6 Books I think everyone ought to read

I’ve been attempting to read more but have struggled with it since graduating from college 7 years ago. And isn’t it funny the excuses we make because I was reading text-heavy academic books for four years I made the excuse that it caused a reading burnout!

And then I made the excuse I didn’t have time to read books, well hello audiobooks but then I made, even more, excuses like “I can’t listen to them while at home”. It’s crazy!

But growing and learning are important to me and so I made a bit more of an effort to read and here are the books I have read so far this year.

She Means Business by Carrie Green

This one was perhaps a pivotal part in (finally) making the changes in my business I have been craving. Carrie Green not only talks about her own journey but gives some incredible steps to move your business forward even if it means to adjust the sails a bit. It’s definitely a good read and one that I will more than likely read again.

Start with Why by Simon Sinek

I think this one of those books that every business owner needs to read. It’s definitely about how to develop your own leadership and gives some incredible insight on why a business fails and what it will take to succeed.

5 Second Rule by Mel Robbins

This was definitely one of my favorite books, there are parts where Mel is so real about what she was experiencing but also sharing other people’s story where you could just hear her well up with tears. I listened to the audiobook version and I am glad I did. If you are a procrastinator, then this is totally the book for you.

The Success Principles by Jack Canfield

I am in the middle of this book, listening to it on my walk for 30 minutes. Not five minutes into the book I was feeling a-ha moments and became emotional which is pretty interesting to me as this is not a fiction book. But if you are struggling in your life right now with anything, then this book is a goldmine.

The Wealth Mindset by Neville Goddard

Mindset while not everything is an important ingredient for your success. Perspective is everything and this book can really help you gain that next level of awareness.

Expert Secrets by Russel Brunson

There are leaders and there are leaders but what creates a movement is truly based on the kind of leader you are. It’s definitely one of those books that I read in a day because I wanted to know the next step and then the next step. If you are ready to share your message with the world, then this book is a must-read.

Have you read any of these books? I would love to hear from you what you thought about them!

What being in Foster Care has taught me about life and business

What being in Foster Care has taught me about life and business

foster careThe journey of healing is hard, interesting and a powerful one.

It’s taken me more years than I’d like to admit to looking at my upbringing in foster care in a positive light.

But I am incredibly excited to finally can look back and not feel ashamed because the reality is there is so much better I have learned that has played a key role in how I approach life and business.

The Lessons:

Taking Risk – Now this has come with good and bad experiences but one thing I have learned is to not be afraid of taking a risk.

Strategizing – This has been playing a role in my survival. Learning this skill has proven to be one of the most profound lessons.

I am in charge – I control how I show up when I show up and the actions I take. Creating the life, I want, is up to me and the past does not hold any dark clouds over me.

How all of this serve me now:

It’s really amazing what appears to be so small at times, really has the most profound impact. Because I am willing to take a risk, I have started businesses, close them when they fell out of alignment and changed course as needed. I have written books

I have written books to share my story risking judgment and ridicule.

I have taken a risk in agreeing to my son’s liver transplant even though there are a lot of risks involved and lifelong medical care.

Taking risks is the cornerstone of being an entrepreneur. It’s like laying everything on the line because your vision and mission are so much bigger than who you are.

The ability to strategize allows me to see how to connect the dots from the big vision, working backward to the point where I am now. I am a visionary, the kind of person that dreams big can see that bigger picture and my mind just channels all the pathways to make it happen.

It’s the thing that I rely on when I hit a stumbling block and feeling the frustration because it will ask me to take a step back and reevaluate the strategy and come up with a new plan.

And because I am in control, I can decide which step is the best one and the next one. I can choose to follow the initial strategy or make a change.

This life is a journey and so is your business. It isn’t easy no matter what your past but if you can look at your childhood from a different perspective can make all the difference in the world.

Lessons are always to be learned and it’s important to reflect and acknowledge them.

What you need to know about starting a business

What you need to know about starting a business

I would love to start off this post with saying that starting and having your own business is full of bliss and glory but I am not into creating unrealistic illusions.

When I first ventured into the business 11 years ago, I for sure believed and thought this would be a cakewalk, and in part that dreamer in me is certainly responsible for that. But the practical and logical person that resides within, new better.

And I want to share with you, some things that I have learned over the years when it comes to starting a business. I have had a few of them, some of them complete and utter failure – not because my heart wasn’t in it, but I was not working from my zone of genius – that thing I am so damn good at and that I could do all day long without batting an eye.

If you are thinking that started a business is perfect for you, read on because the next few tips will help you get on the track of knowing and doing what you love.

Know your Talents, Skills, and Knowledge

Take a piece of paper and make a list of all the things you are good at. Then next to it make a list of all the skills you have mastered and the knowledge you have gained – in life, work and going to school. Even if you are self-taught, this will help you find your zone of expertise.

This can include anything from being super self-disciplined, creative, technical, and your education. Maybe it’s having a unique perspective, overcoming challenges and having a killer mindset. Or maybe you are awesome at building websites, behind the scenes work or making things like painting or other art skills.

Acknowledge your weakness

This is so not a bad thing. I used to think it is but knowing the areas of where you could use more support will work in your favor as you are laying out your business. For example, even though I have a degree in Accounting, I am not great at tracking money. Being aware of this, gives me a few options a) find a system that works for me or b) outsourced to someone who loves doing this.

Self-awareness is the key to your success. The more you are aware, the more you what you need to, can do and want to do. If accounting isn’t your thing, and you don’t really want to find a system that works, then you already know outsourcing is going to be the thing.

But let’s say consistency isn’t up your alley, then hiring someone to hold you accountable may be the strategy you need.

What makes your heart sing?

Now, how do you tie your strength and weakness into something that you cannot stop thinking about and you would do it for free if it wasn’t for the fact you need to live?

Years ago, I had a book-keeping business because despite being dyslexic, I was good with all the details of debits and credits, creating spreadsheets and so on. But I didn’t love it. I struggle sitting behind the desk for hours on end, get tired and my energy bottoms out.

However, when it comes to helping people go after their dreams, taking action and holding them accountable, now that lights me up like a firecracker and my energy is… well a high that is hard to explain.

I also love helping people with some technical aspects i.e. link their opt-in to their newsletter, edit website pages, build websites – but this isn’t something I would want to do all day long either – ha. It’s just something I am good at and I don’t mind helping here and there.

But what about you?

What gets you so excited that you can’t stop thinking about in the morning or when you go to bed?

What gives you that “energetic high” that lights you up from the inside out.

What would feel like a dream come true if you could make money with that dream?

Take a moment and reflect on that ultimate dream and give yourself permission that it is possible.
