The word sovereign is being tossed around a lot right now. Have you noticed that?
It’s being used a little too lightly for my liking if I’m being honest.
Sovereignty is a big thing.
It’s a serious thing.
It’s a discovery and a journey and a decision to keep choosing yourself decision after decision in order to remain operating this way.

Recently a client brought up a thing that I had said a couple of years ago when I was making a large life choice that made everyone in my world VERY uncomfortable…. “I don’t owe anyone an explanation other than-‘Because I want to’“.
It took me back into the space I was in when I learned that lesson for the first time.

Someone somewhere once told me that if I wasn’t making 10k months, I wasn’t doing enough.
I was failing.
I was “dabbling”.
I wasn’t really committed.

About 4 years ago I realized that this was not the way. Busy as a badge of honor is one of the most ass-backwards things you could do.
Here’s the deal. I’m an over-worker by nature. I have to actively keep myself balanced or I will work unnecessarily long hours and everything else in my life will suffer.
I lived on that cycle for most of my life, I get it. You probably don’t know how else to be. Or you hear me talk about living life on your terms, having time for everything you actually need and WANT to do, and replacing the chaos with calm and think.. “Ya, cool story bro. That’s not possible in my life Jamie.”
I get it, you think I couldn’t possibly help you, with everything that’s on your plate, everything you want to accomplish, everything you’re striving for but in some areas keep missing. All of the busy and chaos and hustle grind in your life is super necessary and there is no other way. Ya, so do most of my clients until they finally quit fighting their own lives and choose to take a step in the other direction.
That’s my purpose.

I’m a car girl.
Always have been.
I like them all. Trucks, Jeeps, cars, motorcycles. I like them lifted and/or loud. I like them unique and fun.
When someone asks me what my dream car is, I answer with a list. Ha! (Can you relate?)
I don’t have just one. I’m not good at picking just one favorite of anything really. I like to enjoy too many things for that kind of shit.
Some of my earliest memories are of me standing around a truck or motorcycle with my Dad and his friends. That’s something I’m just comfortable with. It was no surprise to my people that I went into the automotive business and stayed there the way that I did. It just fit. Continue reading “Car Girl”
The past few years I’ve spent the majority of my time alone.
A lot of it by choice, a lot of it simply because I refuse to “fill” my space just for the sake of filling it.
The past few summers it feels like I’m either spending the weekends traveling, surrounded by people, living the dream and feeling so full or I’m home, by myself, feeling full but also wishing someone was there.
Wishing might not be the right word. But honestly I’m not even sure any of this is going to make sense or even truly get my point across. I’ve been thinking about writing on the topic for a long time but could never find the words to really describe this strange state I find myself in a lot of the time.

You guys already know I’m all about getting shit done in business but I’m not sure if you realize that it’s also a lifestyle. In every portion of my life I work to make things as efficient as possible. That includes tools, a strategy, a mindset or a product, I am all about finding things that fit and work for me.

The brain is an interesting thing. It’s funny how everything is good, You can be kicking ass all day long, accomplishing everything you set out to do, make awesome connections, have a killer work out, make big break through with clients, have a good hair day, eat perfect macros, cross everything off the list. End the day feeling great.
Then you lay down. All noise off. Just you and the sound of the fan and your brain starts racing. It takes you to the one thing you wish you could control right now, but can’t. And even though you’re knocking down every thought its throwing at you with logic, it just keeps coming.
Even after many years of learning how to move past, release, and let go of certain feelings, sometimes…only sometimes my heart floods my head and I can’t turn it off.
Maybe that’s a sign of undiscovered things or unsaid words or maybe, just maybe these feelings weren’t ready to be shipped off so quickly.
I’m not sure yet but I plan on paying close attention until I figure it out.
Why is it much easier for people to implement the rule of “authenticity” into their business (or at least claim to) but they can’t seem to put that same sort of naked rawness into their personal relationships?
Don’t you see the disconnect here?
ALL AREAS ARE CONNECTED! They all are part of the circle. Without one of the pieces, your ball won’t roll. You might be able to push it along, but it won’t roll smoothly. Continue reading “You Don’t Get To Just Pick One”
