Rest, Don't Quit

You can't pour from an empty cup so it's important to stop and rest when needed. So much has been happening, both good and challenging, that I'm hoping to share over the next little while. My biggest takeaway from this season is that there is always the option of making lemonade from lemons. ALWAYS. The temptation to give in to grief, doubt, fear, and the low expectations of others and just throw in the towel is always there. It's in those times you need perspective. Ask yourself this question: 10 years from now, will I be content with completely walking away from what I once felt so compelled to do? If the answer is yes, then maybe it's time to bow out. However, if the answer is no you better dig deep and find a reason to keep pushing forward. Regret is a cruel captor that never forgets, so don't give it your best years ;)

With that said although I've been quiet, I have been working my butt off on my new website and a few other exciting projects t I can't wait to share. But first of all  Welcome! I'd never used square space to build a sitebefore, but after watching tutorials, consuming their articles and making friends with the technical support people (Happy belated birthday Abbie!) here we are. I'd absolutely love and welcome feedback too, so don't be shy.

I've got so much great content I've been working on and can't wait to share it with you. My goal is to provide valuable branding and marketing advice so check back often. I'll still be sharing about lessons learned from the school of life too.  When it comes to marketing or branding or building a business or life in general, I want to stress the importance of having a plan. It will help you ease back into rhythm when you do take those necessary breaks from work, adulting or whatever else it is that might feel overwhelming at the moment. Tony Robbins says, โ€œIf you talk about it, it's a dream, if you envision it, it's possible, if you schedule it, it's real.โ€ Planning is important because it keeps you accountable and gives you the ability to measure your efforts, no matter how small, because trust me, every step adds up.
