“You get to decide where your time goes. You can either spend it moving forward, or you can spend it putting out fires. You decide. And if you don’t decide, others will decide for you.” – Tony Morgan

Is your goal brand awareness? are you trying to bring back existing clients? are you trying to convert? Are you trying to get prospects to visit your IG profile/Facebook page, Are you trying to increase website visit?
Before you click "promote" you should be very deliberate about what you are trying to achieve with the promotion and only then can you measure the effectiveness of the ad.
Crazy as it may sound, we have had to keep promoting a sold out item just because our the ad brought a lot of followers to our client's IG page, but by conversion goal, that ad won't have been considered effective but by social proof goal, it's very effective.
Do you place ads that are goals specific?
Friday I left my position working full time in the Peri-natal program with the mothers and babies in recovery. I had such sweet closure with them and was showered with gifts and appreciation, my heart is so full of love and gratitude! It’s been an honor to be in service to them and witness their journey the past 9 months. I’ve developed deep lasting relationships with many of them and have witnessed them grow into mature, independent and strong women. These women are courageous, dedicated and committed to their recovery, babies and lives. Their journey of healing truly inspires me! It’s hard to put into words how grateful I am for their willingness to try something new and be open to healing in ways that may have been strange or uncomfortable for them. I feel so blessed that they want me to come back and continue doing sound healing and ritual and I will do everything I can to make this possible. Bless your lives sweet peri girls, you got this! Love you and miss you! #sweetendings#newbeginnings#womeninrecovery#womenhelpingwomen#womensempowerment#wisewomenshealing#gratitude#blessed#prayers#inspirationalwomen#sayyestolife
This conversation matters.
A fellow feminist was upset with me for agreeing with the statement "women hate women" (in a nutshell). First, it isn't contrary to feminism to admit that we have problems.
Second, it is well documented and researched through centuries and across cultures that women are oftentimes more likely to see each other as competition for resources than to see how they could work together to achieve their desires.
This isn't an opinion. This isn't an accusation. This is documented reality. So... what do we do with that? 👊We. Question. It.
Who does this benefit?
Where did it originate?
How do we stop?
Is it even possible?
Keep asking questions, curiosity leads to solutions. 👊 Stop. Getting. Mad. At. Conversions.
One of most frustrating things I'm seeing recently is people getting angry at others who are just trying to have important conversations. (and saying that you aren't an ally unless someone else determines that you are)
Here's the deal, we ARE going to fuck these conversations up. You know why? BECAUSE WE HAVEN'T BEEN HAVING THEM. We don't know how.
So much has changed in a short time. This is all new, uncharted. I'm going to fuck up, you're going to fuck up. Let's just admit that, get it over with, say the damn thing, get better at it and EXPAND the conversation.
Race, gender, status, politics, religion... these things are HARD to navigate and yes, any one among us could dedicate weeks, months and years to each of these things and at the end of the day STILL fuck up in the eyes of somebody, so PLEASE, let's have some GRACE for each other, stop demanding that everyone be an expert before opening their mouths and HAVE THE CONVERSATIONS!
Say it wrong, then figure out a better way. We need to get comfortable with the reality that we are humans dealing with other humans and we all have blind spots and sometimes say things that aren't 100% representative of our true feelings/beliefs and if we don't want to be held to a "But you SAID!" situation, we betta back down on holding other people's feet to the fire.
Do you agree?
So what is strategy anyway?
We get it. It can feel a little overwhelming when you enter the business game and people are saying you need this and you need that. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
And you're all over here like... WTF, where do I start?
Well, we'll tell you. Strategy. What's the point of bloody starting with a logo if you haven't got your brand direction sorted yet? The answer, you don't. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
Set the plan, figure out the direction, create the design to communicate the message. The design isn't making things look pretty, it's there to assist in visually communicating the overall message. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
So stuck on how to create a functioning strategy? Hit us up. We have consultation calls that offer a deep run through to help you find your direction. AND, if you feel like you have your direction sorted but don't know how to visually execute it, then we have creative calls for that too. ⠀ ⠀
Want even more? THEN JOIN OUR COURSE! Entries close Friday 25/1. ⠀
We got chu.
When I needed this reminder today, I heard it. So I’m passing the message along to you.
They will turn out ok. I know we struggle to see that sometimes. I know when they just aren’t “getting it”, making bad choices or even act like they hate you; it makes you worry.
As a mom who has older kids and younger kids, I am constantly reminding myself of this. I am grateful to the luxury of being able to see the fruits of my labor while still in the trenches.
Do all that you can to help them grow into awesome people and the rest is up to them. But chances are if you are worrying about it and need to hear this message, you are already doing exactly that.
Lots of love Mama! 🥰

Last month when I asked about your biggest budget busters... the winner was clear. Food!
Whether it's eating out or overall grocery spend or some combination of the two, more than half of you pointed to food as the one area you struggle with sticking to your budget most. You need to start looking at all your food - on your plate, in your fridge, when you eat out and especially the food you end up putting in the trash - like this! A big plate o' money!
Wanna know the secret to making it happen? Meal planning. If you are willing to set aside 10-15 minutes each week to plan out your meals, I promise you will start getting your food spend under control. And it will also get easier to do it with every passing week.
Here's why it works - 🐖 You shop your pantry first - to reduce food waste
🐖 You check your grocery store online next - to take advantage of produce and protein specials
🐖 Learn what's in season - because fresh, in season produce has more nutrients AND costs less
🐖 Then, plan your meals to take advantage of all of the above
🐖 And build your shopping list off your meal plan
Now hear me out: this doesn't mean you have to cook every night or can't eat out ever - but plan the nights you'll eat out or need to have leftovers, so you don't waste food AND money.
And if the whole concept still seems completely overwhelming, I've got a meal planner printable, and a few other resource options (including sites and apps that will do it all for you!), at the direct link in my bio.

This is me 10 years ago. I may look similar (yoga clothes, in a yoga studio, with my husband behind me) but I feel like a different person 100 times over. I’ve changed and grown so much that now I could never see the world through the eyes that are looking out in this picture. And what I know for sure is that every change I have made has been conscious, hard, focused work. From deciding who to keep in my life because they are supportive, healthy individuals to ending old friendships because they were toxic. It has been a constant re-commitment to health and wholeness and I am more comfortable in my skin now than ever before- but. It’s. All. Been. WORK. Commit yourself to excellence and then do the work needed to get there. It’s messy and totally imperfect. But that’s where the fun is too. #womenhelpingwomen#mothersinspiringmothers#10yearchallenge#soghratiyoga#traceysoghrati#bereal#change#changequotes#changeisgood

"Where flowers bloom, so does hope." 🌸 Lady Bird Johnson
No matter what’s going on in our lives, we must keep hope alive. When you’re feeling unsure of the future, look skyward and know that you are guided by divine intelligence and your own higher self. Feel your feet firmly rooted into the earth and know you are supported. Smell flowers and sit by a tree to bring in nature’s healing energy.
Remember there are invisible unseen forces working in your favor and have faith that you will be ok. As you know, change is constant so “this too shall pass.” As I mentioned in a post earlier this week, keep your thoughts spiraling upward and intentionally talk yourself into the positive possibilities of the situation. It’s a 50/50 chance things will go well so you might as well focus on those possibilities.
You are strong and courageous. Remember all the ways you have triumphed in the past so you know what I’m talking about. 💗 Sending positive energy your way!
P.S. If you’re interested in arranging flowers in your home to boost your mood and feel more hopeful, click the link in my profile to read my article on mood-boosting flower arrangements.

Sometimes it seems like things never slow down. I go from hustling toward one new project to the next with hardly a chance to exhale.⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
But when I do find moments to reflect and unwind, it feels funny to me, like I should be doing something.⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
I ask myself "am I doing this wrong"? When I get my nails done, the tech says "relax your hand".⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
Umm...I thought I was and now that you’re making me aware I’m not, I really don't know what I am supposed to be doing!⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
Either way I try. Whether or not I fail miserably, I will continue to try.⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
I love to meditate, practice yoga, or read a good book (non-fiction of course) on the couch.⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
What’s your go-to when you want to relax? And are you good at it or do you need some work like me???
