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”
Smile and remember to NEVER let other people dim your light by projecting their own insecurities on you.
Just because someone you care about is all dark and twisty inside doesn’t mean that you have to be too. That’s not going to help anything or anyone.
Stand true in who you are and know that not everyone can handle it.
No matter how capable they may appear to be, sometimes you’re just too bright for them and that’s okay… those aren’t your people.
Eyes on the prize.
KEEP SMILING. KEEP SHINING.
I’m going to be 30 in a few days. 30 years old, it’s hard to believe. It feels like these past 10 years have flown by. To be honest with you, I’ve always felt older. I’ve always been one of the youngest people in every room most of my adult life. So NO, I’m not freaking out about hitting the big 3-0 like a lot of people keep asking. I’m actually excited.

Every time I weigh in at the gym and the number goes down, I get pissed. No one around me, except my trainer gets it. They all look at me like I’m crazy… Because apparently since I’m a woman, that must mean I only have goals to lose weight and be skinnier.
Nope. Couldn’t be more wrong.
We have worked VERY hard over the past year or so to get a plan in place that keeps me gaining. Because I was too skinny (not a luxury at all, so don’t even say it) I was sick. I wasn’t comfortable in my skin. I was weak. I was unhealthy. It wasn’t a good thing.
