When your team becomes your family.
It’s been such an interesting ride in building a virtual business these past 6 years. I remember when the thought of working with a coach or subcontractor that I’d never met before felt so foreign, or temporary.
Looking back I realize that due to the way I originally learned that business was “supposed” to be, that is where those beliefs came from.
“Good help is hard to find”
“Finding someone who is reliable is almost impossible”
“Sometimes you just need to find a warm body to fill the chair”
These are all things that I’m sure we’ve all heard a time or two when working in a management position or owning a business. These are things that we believe to be true because, well that’s what everyone says is true. Continue reading “Delegation”
A while back I got a suggestion to record something talking about my biggest “ah-ha moment” and as I thought about it, a bunch of things popped into my head. As I was revisiting it one stuck out more than the others.
Honestly, this has been a moment that birthed a thousand more and is something that I will forever be grateful for.
Have you ever had one of those moments where you hear something and then something inside of you just clicks? That’s what this moment was.
I was listening to Gary Vee speak at his book launch for the #askgaryvee book and something he said sparked a curiosity in me that’s been very much alive ever since. Continue reading “Greatest Gift”
Ya know what’s cool? When I can help my clients set up all of the admin, behind the scenes systems, and basically anything they need for their business to run smoothly and efficiently because I’ve done it too.
Before I had an assistant, I did it all myself. I took the webinars. I paid for trainings. I built it all myself at one point. I tweaked it along the way too so I have several options to suggest depending on what my client is looking to create.
And before I was full time building this business, I built other peoples businesses. Every department. Every level. All of the things. In the auto body industry, automotive repair, towing, event planning, landscaping construction, transportation, risk management, property damage assessment, claims management, promotional marketing… I think that covers most of it.

What if you were just open to ANY and ALL possibilities in ALL areas of your life?
Well, that one got me good because I could have sworn that I was in fact THAT open.
I believed that I was no longer trying to force the Universe’s hand into only delivering to me in the way that I had lined out and that was it.
The truth is, I have done that in so many ways and in so many places and that has been completely life-changing over the past couple of years. Surrender, remember?
I told you about it. I explained how it works. And how hard it can be. And I got really good at it.

Do you remember when we sat in that little French café and set big picture, long-term goals of what it would be like if I have 8 paying coaching clients?
Well, WE’RE HERE!
—-This morning on a call my client said these words to me after we got done setting up a process for her to have a strategic waiting list for new clients that want to get started and she really doesn’t actually have any time availability for yet but still wants to get locked in as clients.

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”
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?

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.

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.

“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”
