Strong Woman

Strong Woman

Being a strong woman who sticks to her morals, her desires, and doesn’t tone down what makes her who she is, isn’t always easy.

In fact, it’s difficult most of the time. Because most people don’t understand you. And most people try to make you feel like you’re wrong for being the way you are.

This Tattoo…

This Tattoo…

This tattoo was one of the best investments in myself I’ve ever made. Every time  I start to doubt what I’m doing or why I’m doing it, before my inner voice can even chime in to tell that shit to go on somewhere, I see my arm and remember it all.

Everything else stops and I just think: “Shine Jamie. Just shine.”

I know what I need to do. I have the tools. I know my purpose. It’s clear. And this is just a solid reminder whenever I need it that I was put on this planet to shine.

As a good friend of mine once told me, “it’s an external reminder of an internal committment.”

And that it is. An internal commitment that runs so deep to my core I’m not even sure I could actually ever fully explain.

Heavy

Heavy

The truth is: it happens to the best of us. We all have days that are just hard. Moments where it all just weighs down at the same time & simply feels HEAVY.

When you’re passionate about what you do & are committed to living your life your way, you pour yourself into it & sometimes, no matter how much you try to avoid it… it gets heavy. Even if it’s just for an evening, it happens.

Today was one of those days. It’s been an amazing week. So many great things happening in my business, I haven’t felt super well but I’ve been pushing through & taking care of business & me very intentionally. But around 6 pm after literally crossing the 34th thing off a 72 item to-do list filled with left over tasks from the past 10 days & my 4th extremely tough workout, my mind, my energy, & my body said NOPE. That’s it. It’s time to sit down. Continue reading “Heavy”

Operate From Alignment

Operate From Alignment

**Originally published on Facebook April 27th, 2018.

Friday night 1 am… just finishing the day.

I’m not one of those entrepreneurs who runs around saying “if you’re not up at 5 am you’re never going to be successful” or “the late night hustle and grind is a must if you want to win”.

I don’t believe you HAVE to do anything. In fact, I actually think you’ll be MORE successful if you’re getting enough sleep, working out, eating well, spending significant time not working and disconnected, etc…. basically you have to take care of yourself if you want to be able to build and maintain a successful business.

My Pistol

My Pistol

I got this pistol 4 years ago.

I started carrying daily 2 years ago.

Yes it’s registered and I have my conceal permit.

Luckily, I’ve never had to pull my weapon but I am fully prepared to do so if needed.

Most of the time you see me, I’m carrying. Continue reading “My Pistol”

What’s The Deal With That Chick You Train?

What’s The Deal With That Chick You Train?

Apparently there’s this strange situation in my gym where I’ve become the “mystery girl” and people keep cornering my trainer when I’m not there and questioning him about me. Seriously, I can’t make this shit up.

Now if you met Brent (my personal trainer) you’d understand that he’s super straight forward, means business, determined, and focused dude. Doesn’t talk shit. Always takes action. No nonsense kind of guy. So when various guys in the gym started coming up to him while he was working out alone and asking about me, his responses were hilarious.

Get Clear

Get Clear

This picture was taken almost 4 years ago, which seems insane when I really think about it.

But I remember when I first posted it. I was so proud. This shoot was so very well planned and every shot was thought out. Believe it or not, a lot of these poses aren’t easy to capture. It’s hard to stay still in a position that’s not natural, while flexing, and sitting on a hard surface, and trying to make a good face at the same time.

What I’m getting at, is a lot of effort goes into shots like this. And when I first posted this photo that I thought was so classy and classic, I got such mixed feedback. I had family members call my parents and ask “what’s Jamie doing?!” And be very taken aback by it. Continue reading “Get Clear”
