After taking the summer off to spend time with my children, it was my goal to do 10k for the month of September. I am so happy to share with you that I have not only reached my goal, but I have also done it working less than 20 hours a week! The most amazing thing is that it felt almost effortless. You too can create the success you dream of with ease and without stress. However, you do need to work with others who have done the same. I credit my success to working with mentors and healing my relationship with money. If you want to change your relationship with money, join me for a V.I.P day in October. I have two spots open.

On a personal note, I celebrated my birthday with my friends and family on September 16th. Here is a photograph from the birthday celebration. I am in blue with my sister, nephews and my sons. My little boy is in red.
Say 'Yes' To What's Coming
Two things women entrepreneurs struggle with is prioritizing their time and focusing on income producing activities. To make the most of your time, it is important to channel your energy in a way that naturally allows you to say 'yes' to what is important in your business. If you don't consciously become aware of your time, then outside distractions will bog down your energy. It becomes difficult to say 'no’, to what you don't want, and 'yes' to what you do want.
Here are the 3 ways you can be productive with ease and little effort:
Take Control Of Your Day
If you don't have an assistant to respond to your emails, then don’t turn on your computer first thing in the morning. Plan a 30 minute mini retreat where you can determine your most important projects of the day. Do this outside of your office. That way you can come to your office knowing the most important tasks (that hold the most energy for you). This makes it easier to resist the pull of emails and outside demands. Your mini retreat allows you to create laser focused priorities so that you can easily say 'no' to what you don't want, and 'yes' to what you do want.
Avoid Shiny Object Syndrome
It can be very tempting to subscribe to the free emails coming from the successful people in your industry, and then get carried away reading them. Unless you need their specific advice, unsubscribe. Check in with yourself intuitively by going inwards to see who you need to follow, and then surrender to getting full benefit of their knowledge until you have gotten what you needed. Do not waste your time with ‘shiny objects’. Instead focus on the specific needs and stages of your business. For example, I subscribed to a newsletter that had great advice on putting on large events. This wasn't the focus of my business at the time, so I unsubscribed and stopped reading their newsletters.
Focus On Joy
Do the activities that bring you joy and delegate the ones you don't like to your team. Having free time will allow you to tap into your creativity. If you are at the beginning stages of your business, and feel that you cannot afford to hire help, start small with just a few hours a month and build your way up. The most important thing is to get used to the experience of receiving help and letting go.
Remember, success is not about adding on, it is about letting go of what you don't want so that you can say 'yes' to what you do want.
