Frazzled

Frazzled

We all get frazzled sometimes, overwhelmed.

Sometimes all of those plates you have spinning in the air can feel pretty damn daunting. And sometimes the responsibility of all of that and your purpose can feel heavy.

THAT’S OKAY.

You’re human.
Humans have feelings.
Humans get overwhelmed from time to time.

Trust me, coming from a girl who used to operate like a robot in a lot of ways and just avoid the feelings… it’s not worth it. It will always always always catch up with you at some point in one way or another. Continue reading “Frazzled”

Glass Everywhere

Glass Everywhere

I saw someone say… “Make sure you wear your shoes ladies, there’s glass everywhere.”

And I’m not sure I’ve stopped having since.

YES. Massive glass ceilings busted through today girls.

For any woman, anywhere whos ever achieved something no-one thought you could, did better in a position than they expected you to, rose to the top, dented the universe, or proved that “strong…for a girl” isn’t a thing, were JUST STRONG…. We just made history. Continue reading “Glass Everywhere”

Wednesdays

Wednesdays

“On Wednesdays we wear pink!”

 

No, I’m just kidding… Well, maybe sometimes I do but that’s not my point. While I was creating my latest podcast episode I just kept saying that in my head the entire time, haha. Insert your favorite Mean Girls quote here! Continue reading “Wednesdays”

Sometimes I Miss Being An Operations Manager

Sometimes I Miss Being An Operations Manager

Sometimes I miss being an Operations Manager.

It was a job that I rose to pretty quickly and honestly, thrived at.

Not to toot my own horn or anything but I am REALLY good at managing businesses.

I still do a lot of that within the scope of coaching with many of my clients now and I’m not saying I don’t love it, because I do. I love helping people with the whole picture. Their business reflects on their personal lives, it always does. It reflects on them, on how they are treating themselves just as much as how well they are “managing” the biz. And being able to not only create the balance, but keep it is something I truly do love. It’s a gift that I am forever grateful for. Continue reading “Sometimes I Miss Being An Operations Manager”

What To Do When People Are Shitty

What To Do When People Are Shitty

What to do when people are shitty….

 

I was in the shower pondering on the way different people approach different situations and I thought about that question; What do you do when people are shitty to you?

 

Well, I feel like we all may have a go-to reaction that we’ve developed over the years when faced with people being sucky towards us but is that really the best option?

Shatter The Stigma

Shatter The Stigma

“A woman who continues to shatter the stigma of something that tries it’s damnedest to hold you back but will never succeed.”

I ran across these words today. Words that a precious client and fellow boss lady who has a chronic illness said about me during an interview I did for her podcast a couple of years ago. Continue reading “Shatter The Stigma”

My Heart Might Have Just Exploded

My Heart Might Have Just Exploded

Do you ever have those moments where someone says something to you, or about you and it TOTALLY catches you off guard? Like in a good way, though. In a way that makes you sit back in your chair and go “WOW”… and your heart feels like it might burst?

Yeah, that just happened to me. And I wanted to share it with you;

“I reached out to Jamie 3 years ago with the idea of something I’d never heard of before, starting a coaching business for hairstylists.

I did NOT expect her response.

When I told her my idea, she said, “I don’t think you know how quickly you can make money doing that.”

Fast forward 3 years later, and we’ve built things I never even dreamed of when I made that first phone call.

What I’ve learned, is that the magic is in the mundane. It’s the consistency of the mindset work.  It’s the journaling, creating space for quiet and rest, and visualizing. The things we are “too busy” to do are actually the things that create everything we want.

Do it for a little while and it works… and that’s when most people stop.
Do it for a long time, and it creates the foundation for a life you wouldn’t even dream possible.
Do the things Jamie teaches, consistently and unwaveringly, and watch your whole life change.”

Reading those words that a private client of mine sent brings tears to my eyes and an immense amount of pride to my heart. It’s always great to see your work… work. And to see it change someone’s life is just icing on the cake.

Why We Practice

Why We Practice

I was finishing a book the other day and it promoted this insane overwhelming feeling of gratitude. One small statement caused me to go into deep thought about intentional living and why it works.

 

The statement: “This is why we practice”

 

Mindfulness mainly but all areas fit under the umbrella really.

Juggle

Juggle

Let’s be real, life is always a lot to juggle.

And sometimes trying to stay on top of it all just feels….impossible.

Then you add in all of the things that are happening in the world lately and it just makes it feel even bigger, even more daunting almost.

Learning how to navigate things in these new and different times hasn’t been easy for anyone, whether we care to admit it or not. Things are different. Intentions are different. Proactive behavior has become more necessary than ever and sometimes that feels like a mountain to climb. Continue reading “Juggle”

Impact

Impact

“If I wouldn’t have hired you when I did, I probably wouldn’t still be alive”.

I will never forget the feeling of hearing that statement from one of my clients. It knocked me back in my seat. I remember crying when we got off the phone because of the impact he made on me during that conversation.

I didn’t know he was close to giving up on living when we started our work together.

I knew he had goals, he needed structure and we had a lot of mindset work to do, but I didn’t know suicidal thoughts were at play. During the first few months of working with a new client, we spend a lot of time going deep, like really deep into the dark shadows of self. We uncover fears and limiting patterns, unhealthy habits and space that needs room to breathe. Sometimes those are just around performance, professional growth, communication, self-worth, rebelling against structure, lacking a plan, etc. Continue reading “Impact”
