The One About My Biggest Fear + A Gift For You

July 21st, 2016 | no comments

I know, I know you’re one tough sista, but I’m curious, do you have a crazy phobia?

 

While parts of me are tough as nails, I realized I have some crazy phobias. One I discovered when I was a wee one, and that is my fear of BIG EYES (ugh, I cringe just thinking of it).

 

I discovered this when I was reading the Encyclopedia and came across a picture of a tarsier. I literally threw the book and had nightmares for a week. I’ll just say this, it’s eyes are 75% of its head (which can see into your soul). *faints *

 

Another phobia I have that I actually discovered this year is Trypophobia. I just had to Google it make sure I spelled it right and now I’m itchy all over. Gross. If you feel horrified when you look at honeycombs, lotus pods or that frog whose babies hatch out of it’s back (oh you don’t know about THAT ? Google at your own risk…) then you have Trypophobia too.

 

While those phobias are a bit off the wall and won’t keep me from getting through my daily existence, my third fear actually did keep me from moving forward in life and my business. This fear isn’t so crazy either, a lot of people share this phobia with me, maybe you do too.

 

You’ve heard it all before, statistically, people would rather die, have a pet snake or hold a spider if it meant they didn’t have to do this one thing….

 

And that one thing is…. Public Speaking.

 

I’ll be the first to say, most phobias are irrational and just in our heads (I mean, what did a honeycomb ever do to me?) but what goes on in our heads feel very, very real and can shape our whole world.

 

So how did a girl that has a fear public speaking overcome one of her crazy, not so crazy phobias? I talk about it in today’s video, which you can watch below.

If you’re interested in the free training I took to start my journey to getting over my fear of public speaking, click here and you’ll be taken there straight away. Just enter your name and email and you’ll be given free access to the support materials and training videos. Super valuable stuff that literally changed the game for me.

Please know I’m on this journey with you and doing videos, booking workshops and sharing my voice doesn’t come easy to me at.all. But I do know its necessary and I’m here to walk shoulder to shoulder with you as you continue your journey to being more visible and sharing your voice.

Check out today’s video and sign up for your free training if you’re serious about kicking your fear to the curb. Stay tuned because I’ll share even more resources with you next week as well.

Big hugs,

Jennifer

P.S. The reason I couldn’t give you the actual name of aforementioned frog is because I’d have to Google it, and then there’d be images and then I’d see it in my head all.day.long. I can’t. I won’t. #OnePhobiaAtATime

Feeling Sad & Stuck? This Will Help

June 14th, 2016 | no comments

Hey my darling world changer,

I know you’re like me and feel the effects of yet another tragedy happening in our precious world.

It puts my belly in knots, my heart in pieces and at times I can feel the optimism draining from my body.

But thank God, that whisper, that nudge, that deep soul level WHY — sometimes as subtle as a butterflies wing, brushes up next to my ear and says, “you can do this, you must do this, the world needs you.”

And I know it’s true.

I also know the same is true for you.

Whatever that thing is that sets your heart a-flutter that really means something to you.
THAT thing is important, it’s a gift and it’s meant to be shared with the world.

More than ever, folks like us need to rise up and use our gifts for good!

Now, when you’re putting something out there that’s straight from your heart it can feel vulnerable and it’s easy to get stuck.

No worries, sis, I got your back.

In today’s video, I take my time to give you 4 ways to get unstuck and seriously moving on your mission.

There’s a heart to these things, there’s a psychology behind it and there are elements you may not have considered. I cover it all in today’s video.

Watch the video now, because at this point, time is of the essence.

I feel so lucky to be in your corner cheering you on. Thank you for allowing me to walk shoulder to shoulder with you as you continue on this journey.

You got this world changer, you really do, now  go out there make a difference!
xoxo,

Jennifer

Making a decision can be hard for some.

Decisions are an important part of our everyday life and there’s so much to the topic.

Today, however, I cover an aspect of decision-making most folks don’t talk about(or even realize!)

If you’ve every sheepishly declared, “I’m so indecisive!”, I’m excited to share this with you.

Check out today’s video and let me know what you think about what I reveal!

Happy Choosing,
Jennifer

P.S.  Do you consider yourself indecisive? Or maybe you’re great at decision-making! Either way, today I talk about a hidden reality you may not have realized was happening when you do (or don’t) make a decision. Check it out.

things you may not know about me + what it says about you

May 24th, 2016 | no comments

Screen Shot 2016-05-24 at 10.43.55 AMSo, I posted this picture + caption this morning on Instagram & folks are emailing and telling me they never knew these things about me, so I thought I’d share it with you (hint: I frame it like it’s all about me, but it’s really about you :) #ImCraftyLiketThat)

 

“You Can Go Your Own Way”

⋆It made no sense when I whisked away to the Philippines for a friend, pretty much out of nowhere (or so it seemed)

⋆It was considered questionable when I left a cushy corporate position and moved to South America for 3 years

⋆It’s confusing for folks that I’d rather volunteer than go shopping

⋆I’m told it’s weird that I love thrifted threads and value hand-me-downs more than I do the latest fashion trend

⋆I get teased because my idea of a fabulous weekend may include firewood, hotdogs and a tent for two

The thing is what others call weird, different and unconventional, I just call it ME and what others say is weird, different and unacceptable about you, just makes you YOU-nique 😉

So, start loving those quirks, embrace your uniqueness and shine on, sista! 

*end of post*

Boom! Permission granted for you to be your unique, quirky, fabulous self! How great is that?

The last thing I want to share with you about is…

 

This Summers’ Coming Attractions 

If you’ve been saying to yourself, “Self, this summer I’ve SERIOUSLY gotta get it together!” I invite you to join this group where I’ll be laser coaching the members on how to reach their personal & bizz goals in 90 days (or less!)

I’ve got some goodies coming at you for the next several months and in this group is where the accountability, resources and conversation will be happening. (Note: people in the group have overcome their fear of recording videos, written e-courses, created meditation audios and we haven’t even officially gotten started!!) If you’re interested in joining that wave of success, request to join here and start thinking of your 90 day goal!

Hope to see you in there, and look forward to manifesting your dreams all summer long! 

 

 Here’s to tents, turquoise & teepees,

Jennifer :)

My Powerful Day With Oprah & What That Means For You

May 10th, 2016 | no comments

Hi Friend :)

How are things going with you? I’m still processing after coming back from an amazing surprise vacay to see Oprah’s Super Soul Sessions Series 2! I saw incredible teachers I’m a fan of such as India.Arie, Caroline Myss, Marie Forleo, Amandla Stenberg (Rue!) and Eckhart Tolle and people I’m now totally turned on to like Shaka Senghor, Dr. Shefalie Tsabery and Cheryl Strayed (#FolksYouNeedToGoogle).

The event was amazing and I met sooooo many fantastic people, but the real magic of the trip is how it all came to pass.

I don’t want to make this letter too long, so let’s just say, on Wednesday morning when I woke up, I wasn’t attending the event. The tickets had been sold out  for weeks, my schedule was packed and I had just splurged on a birthday trip for my man. However, by Wednesday night, tickets had been purchased, a car was leaving for LA on Friday and I was on my way to Super Soul Sessions with my magical mastermind sisters.

The combination of synchronicity, dwelling in possibility, listening to those thought leaders and being in the energy of greatness all weekend, reminded me how at any given moment there are a zillion different outcomes. Just because you’ve assessed what’s possible for you using your 5 senses, the reality is there are an infinite number of outcomes that can occur every second of every day.

For example, if you find yourself saying, “I can’t afford it”, really that’s just one outcome out of a zillion.

If you find yourself saying, “I don’t have time”, that’s one possibility, sure, but there are also an infinite number of other possibilities.

This trip was not logical nor probable on Wednesday, but it was possible and once I committed(i.e. my girl scored a ticket, bought it and texted me to tell me I’m going! Hey, sometimes you need a push!) it was on and poppin!

What didn’t seem like a reality on Wednesday, pretty much went off without a hitch days later and I’m forever changed from the trip and the lessons, a-has and warm fuzzies just keep on coming!

So my question to you is this: Where in your life are you stopping short, telling yourself ‘no’ and cutting off the zillion different outcomes available to you? 

Don’t worry I’m not going to leave you hanging.

Here’s what you can do to begin to elevate your thinking:

  1. Identify an outcome you want to manifest in the next 90 Days.
  2. Write down at least 10 ways you yourself could make it happen.
  3. Pray, meditate, drum circle or whatever else you need to do to connect to your higher power and ask for guidance on 10 more ways you can manifest your outcome.
  4. Throughout the next 90 days remain open to new possibilities, inspirations and miracles.
  5. Adopt an attitude of dwelling in possibility instead of telling yourself  “you can’t”.

I know it’s easy to read a list of bullet points, but intentionally living this way takes support, accountability, and love.

That’s why I’m opening up my Coaching à la Carte sessions to you if you need some support and accountability (and love!). In these sessions, we’ll help you get clear on what you want to manifest in 90 days and how to stay in the energy of creation to surely manifest what you desire.

These sessions are designed to allow you to pick my brain, receive guidance, gain clarity and really walk away with a plan, inspiration, clarity and direction. If you’re ready to start exploring the realm of what’s really possible for you this year, be among the first to snag your spot for a Coaching à la Cart Session.

You have the power (and choice) right now to make your life unrecognizable in the next 90 Days. It’s really up to you because the possibility is there.

I’m wishing you a wonderful rest of your week and I can’t wait to create with you soon!

Sending you all my best,
Jennifer

Feel Like No One Notices You? This Will Help

May 3rd, 2016 | no comments
Happy Spring!

I had a blast speaking with those of you who signed up for the complimentary 2016 Action Plan sessions. I learned SO much about you and I’m excited for you to go all in for the rest of 2016!A big concern that I heard over and over is that you sometimes feel that no one notices you. You feel like you put yourself out there and yet you’re speaking into a void.Let me share something with you.

If you don’t know, I’m secretly (not so secretly) obsessed with the singer Sia, she’s so talented, a bit weird and full of passion — pretty much my kind of people!

A friend that knows my obsession sent me an old video of her singing in some guy’s living room. Her voice was as good as it is today, her hair was a mess (in a good way) and she had on some baby doll dress straight out of the 90’s. She wasn’t giving us bedazzled leotards, dance numbers and fierce hair and make-up. She was just giving us SIA.

AND this was over 6 years ago.

What’s my point?

I didn’t know about her 6 years ago – or more correctly stated, I didn’t know I knew about her.  Present day I’m obsessed, and yet she’s be been the same fiercely talented, cooky, and soulful singer for years… she was just outside of my awareness…

It turns out I actually have old songs from her in my iTunes either under the name of her old band or just, Sia, she simply wasn’t on my radar.  In fact, one of her songs, Destiny, was on one of my favorite iTunes playlists since forever and actually came out in 2001.

So, a woman who I knowingly developed a deep appreciation for in the past 2 years has actually been a positive staple in my life since 2001!?

What does this have to do you with you?

EVERYTHING, dahling!
You’re doing the work. Everyday. You show up. You give of yourself, you share your genius in your own unique way. It may seem like no one notices, but people notice.

Even if you don’t notice them noticing and even if they don’t yet know they are noticing, you are influencing in your own positive way.

Every day you gain a fan, you’re gaining traction. The majority of the people who signed up for my Action Plan for 2016 calls, I didn’t know personally. However, when I got on the phone with them it turns out they’d been on my mailing list for years! They weren’t new to me at all. I just didn’t know they were there listening, watching and growing from my content on a consistent basis.

So this is my long way of telling you to Stay The Course. Your work is needed, it’s necessary and it’s making an impact whether you feel it or not. It may not happen today or tomorrow, but slowly and surely you’ll hit that tipping point that you’re looking for. In the meantime, make like Sia and stay genuine, authentic, talented and inspiring and there’s no way you won’t enjoy the recognition you deserve.

I believe in you!

Your #1 Fan,
Jennifer :)

Afraid to Put Yourself Out There? Keep This in Mind.

April 5th, 2016 | no comments

Oh, this journey of personal development can be a doozy can’t it? You read the books and the blogs, you attend the retreats and seminars, you dive deep and look inside and the journey really never ends.

 

Recently, it became clear to me that even though in this year alone I’ve spoken at conferences, workshops and seminars, have just about every social media platform and update my blog and newsletter on a regular basis…

I was hiding out.

 

You know how, to the public something can appear one way, but deep down you know your truth?

 

Since I work with people like you who are multi-talented and tend to shine really bright, your 60% effort looks like someone else’s 100% and that allows you to “hide” in plain sight.

Don’t get me wrong, this was totally hanging out in my blindspot, until the realization hit me like a ton of bricks.

I realized that even though I have the gift of gab, and even though I kept telling myself to “do videos”, I allowed some negative feedback from one person keep me putting myself out there in a way that is most challenging, yet most in alignment with me and how I roll.

 

So what did I do the instant I got this awareness?

 

I followed the three tips I share with you below, and I suggest that you do the same.

 

  1. Told someone I trust. It came up for me a morning I was meeting my Mastermind sister, so I came clean, quick. It was painful, I was scared (like trembling scared) and she both gave me a safe place to land…then whipped out her calendar to hold me accountable (do you have rockstars like this in your life? If you don’t, please know I’m in your corner!)

 

  1. Don’t talk about it be about! Thought without action is dead. I had to get into action and do the thing that I had been scared to do. Plus, I got clear on what was tripping me up and now I know how to frame it, so what used to scare me now fuels me. I share more insights on that in the video below.  

 

  1. Set yourself up for success. Instead of making one video, I made three, for the moment I lose momentum, get negative feedback, lose energy whatever #lifehappens. I put in enough work upfront to ensure I stick to my goals during the inevitably changing seasons of my life. I’ve also set up accountability channels so that even if I want to back peddle or start shrinking, I have people and structures in place that won’t allow that to happen.

Want more insights on how to apply these ideas? Watch the video below

I’d love to hear from you.

What’s been stopping you from putting yourself out there, and what will you do differently starting today?

 

Until next time…

xoxo,

Jennifer :)
