🥂Number THREE Main Mindset Shift That Helped Me Scale to Multiple 6 Figs
📲Focusing on what really matters/Showing Up Passionately about the WORK and NOT just in it for the money.
🤷🏼♀️Not the smoothest and most eloquent way to say it, but there ya go…#prettyawkward and #prettystraightforward Sometimes keeping it simple is the best way to go.
👇🏻I want you to ask yourself two questions right now.
1️⃣Are you happy and healthy outside of your business?
2️⃣Is your family/loved ones/friends happy and healthy?
📲If the answer is YES to both of those, then a “failed launch” or rough patch in your business is NOT the end of the world. I’ve had some SHIZZ go on in my personal life this year, and it really made me prioritize that part of my life more than ever.
😎And (not so) ironically, my business took off.
👉🏻Why? Because I did the work I had to do without making it the end all be all of my existence. I realized that none of this matters if the other parts aren’t working.
😘And the passionate part? Well that seems like a give-in, but warrants repeating. If you don’t like what you’re doing everyday and you’re JUST doing it for the money, you’re probably going to resent it and eventually give up.
😬Being an entrepreneur is HARD sometimes, and if we don’t love what we do (even on the sucky ass days), we won’t continue. Do not do something JUST for the money. Do it because you CAN’T NOT DO IT (AND you wanna make some good money also ;)
This mindset shift made me realize what truly mattered and boomed my biz. I have a feeling it can do the same for you❤️ 📸 @3muh

It’s pissing with rain, there is gale force winds and I have mud splattered all up my legs but just check those happy faces. (Promise Munro is happy!) Taking some very much needed time out today and getting some Perth fresh air. Spending the evening doing the shop accounts doesn’t seem so bad now! #selfcare

Lets talk about being a full-time artist! ✨ Before becoming a full-time artist myself I definitely underestimated all the work that goes into keeping yourself afloat. The word full-time can be deceiving in this context. You might think that being a full-time artist means creating artwork every moment of the day but that couldn’t be further from the truth.
For me, being a self-employed artist means that I am not only an artist but also an art director, marketeer, researcher, website developer, shop keeper, photographer, customer service, admin, accountant.. I’m sure there are even more job titles that I am forgetting. After experiencing the the load of work that goes into supporting yourself with your artwork I have so much more respect for fellow full-time artists. I guess what we all have in common is the drive and passion for what our art stands for. This passion is what fuels us every day to power through all of the tasks that come with being a full-time artist.
How do I deal with the uncertainty and stressful days? Patreon is one way for me to stress a little less about making ends meet with client work and selling my art. Knowing I have this community of supporters and a steady income every month gives me a peace of mind 💛🙏 If you want to support my work in such a way you can head to www.patreon.com/styngvi
I’m curious to know your thoughts on this! Would you like to see more posts with insights into the full-time artist life? Did I forget to mention any other tasks that come with being a full-time artist? Let me know in the comments! And I hope you like this Babushka inspired artwork I created to illustrate how being a self-employed full-time artist feels sometimes 😅

Your coach is not responsible for your success...😬
I said it🤷🏼♀️
Now, lessss get this straight.
Like I said in my post yesterday, I will never NOT have a coach.
📲But is my coach solely responsible for my results?
📲Am I solely responsible for my clients results?
Anytime my clients tell me “you did this for me”, I’m like no ma’am, not me. YOU DID IT. I just guided you👯♀️
👇🏻What gets you results (in addition to the support and guidance of your coach?)
✔️DECIDING it CAN happen
✔️BELIEVING it will and looking for evidence to support that instead of complaining that it’s not (and making more of the NOT come to life!)
✔️Improving your skill sets and your coaching techniques
✔️EXPERIENCE baby, nothing beats it! It’ll help you get really good at what you do😘
✔️Showing up. Not once, not twice, but consistently so your audience and clients KNOW you’re there, top of mind, and someone that can truly help them solve their problems.
✔️Adapting a CEO boss mindset. We are business owners, and have to act like any other-be that Tony Robbins or Target🙏🏻
🥂Let’s promise, together (and in the comments👇🏻) to take RADICAL RESPONSIBILITY for our actions and business and not solely rely on our coach to “work their magic” (Cuz it doesn’t work like that😍)
I’ll randomly gift my how to get on more sales calls mini course to someone who comments below😘

If you have a passion, something that inspires you and brings you joy, than you have a purpose 🌏

Want to know my latest productivity hack that has also helped to reduce feelings of overwhelm and stress? 💁🏼♀️ ⠀
It’s my new secret formula to GETTING SHIT DONE 👊🏼 ⠀⠀
And it goes a little something like this...⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
▫️ TO DO⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
▫️ TA DA ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
Basically, it’s my new to-do list system ✍🏼⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
I’m a big fan of to-do lists. I seriously, LOVE THEM! 😍 But because I would always end up writing down ALL OF THE THINGS, I would very quickly become overwhelmed AF 🤯 Because, well all my eyes saw was an anxiety-inducing, never-ending list of tasks!⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
ALL OF THE THINGS!!! 😩😳🤯 NOT ENOUGH TIME!⠀⠀⠀
So now I break up my to-do’s into three different categories. And let me tell you, I’ve been SAHHH much more productive and a whole lot less stressed 👏🏼💃🏼⠀⠀⠀⠀
This is how I dooo iiiit... (this is how I do it 🎶)⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
1️⃣ TODAY: this is where I write down all the things that need to be completed that day!⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
2️⃣ TO DO: this is where I write down all the tasks and deadlines I have for the week. These tasks stay there until the next day when I write my new TODAY list. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
3️⃣ TA DA (ideas): this is my ‘ideas’ list. Where I write down all the fun and creative ideas 💡 that pop into my head. Things that I’d like to do one day, but are not a priority. I write them down so I don’t forget about them and can be inspired by them.⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
I know it probably sounds pretty simple. But sometimes simple is best. Not having EVERYTHING on the same to-do list has helped me prioritise sah much better 👍🏼 ⠀⠀⠀⠀
And yes, I write all my lists by hand because I’m such a pen & paper gal 📝 ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
We all have our things, so I’d love to what is one of you top productivity hacks for getting shit done?⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
Anyone else having mind mastery issues? Why can’t training your brain be a simpler process? These days I’m feeling like I’m trying to reel in a 2 year old having a tantrum.

Blogging has been an interesting journey over the last 3-6 months since publishing my first write up.
One story out of all the stories I want to tell is the story of my life.
It’s reasons, to be a passport to a past life to help me find some meaning, even more understanding of situations and feelings I find so hard, a purpose for a brighter future.
Maybe it could also be a inspiring constructive narrative for someone else to write down their own story.
Time will tell.
When I had the idea I thought it would be fairly easy, but It’s actually a difficult thing writing about the story of your life.
Where to begin? how do I start the story? what comes next when you turn the page over?
It’s been nearly a couple of months since I’ve added the next chapter to the story of my life, my fingers were hovering over the keyboard, stuck, not knowing what to type next.
But, my fingers finally found the words. The next chapter is about what life after school taught me when I graduated from high school.
Have a read, link is up in my bio and let me know what you think ☝🏻☝🏻☝🏻☝🏻

Who wants a quick biz lesson from my 5 year old? 🤚 (He’s very good - I’m thinking about hiring him out…) Anyhoo - this little dude may only be 5, but he has us all wrapped around his little finger.
By listening to and learning from what he observes.
If he does something and gets a good reaction - he does it again.
If he gets a bad reaction - he tries something different.
The kid knows I love hugs - so when he sees me starting to get annoyed, he comes over and gives me a whopper! Works every bloomin’ time…. 😊
So what’s this got to do with business?
We all need to be doing just this 👆with our own audiences.
Learn what they like - and give them more
And what doesn’t seem to go down so well? Well, maybe leave that and give ‘em a hug instead… 😉

No matter now many trends or strategies you know, if you are not consistent you will not achieve what you want.
You have to keep doing, keep trying, keep testing, keep tweaking until you get the results you want. .
Trends are great, strategies are fantastic; but if you're not consistent with it, you won't go anywhere. .
Are you consistent in what you do?

This coming new year is not just a new year but a new decade. Is that exciting or scary for you?
It made me think back on life so far, almost two decades ago I graduated (2001 from the School of Oriental & African Studies-University of London) I spent a decade working in big companies then in 2011 I was made redundant and had a real sliding doors moment. I was by then the Mum of a little 2 year old boy & had already felt that life was hard as hell trying to parent the way I wanted to & balance a senior job
I went for & was offered the kind of job that graduate me would not have thought possible 10 years ago, my company offices would have overlooked Hyde Park & my salary would have gone up by several ££ but I turned it down
What did I do instead of accept the job? I decided to take on a run down retail unit in a South London backstreet & turn it into a neighbourhood cafe deli with a particular focus on fine foods and kids 😃 The Dish & the Spoon Cafe opened in 2012 & within the year had won Londons Top Toddler Friendly Cafe & turned over a large amount of money
But things have a life of their own, 18 months later the cafe suffered a flood caused by internal plumbing issues & we were closed down for 6 months whilst the insurance company battled to dry the place, a long story later we reopened & traded for a further year but the magic was gone
I closed my doors in August 2016 with my new child a daughter just 10 months old
Inspired by a friend @couturecraft I saw that the Space could be something other than a cafe & a month later we reopened as @space_at61 an event space for hire
3 years in we have seen commercials filmed, workshops held, many supperclubs enjoyed, and much much more
After running the Space for about 6 months I realised that many of the people hiring the Space did not know how to market their events & so I was spending a lot of my time using my former skills as a marketeer to help them. I realised that there may well be in market in small business advice and services @shonachambersmarketing was born
As I focus on 2020 and reflect on 2 decades of life and work so far I have to say I am excited
Quote - Andy Warhol
Good things today! Just had an email that my business loan should be in my account within a few days, I’m about to drop this new collection that I’m really excited about for several reasons, and I’m thankful for the friendships I have right now (compared to how isolated I was a few years ago). Right now I am seriously feeling this teabag motto I’ve tried to live by en route to this point. Sometimes it takes a long time to get where you’re going, especially if you’re trying to get somewhere not on the map. 🥂❤️

365 dagen gaan zachtjes richting hun einde... 365 dagen op die wij ook als familie trots terug mogen kijken. We hebben van het jaar genoten en kijken dankbaar terug met alle ups en downs wat het met zich bracht. Het jaar invullen met alles moois dat deden wij tuurlijk zelf. Toch mogen wij ook zeggen dat wij door de goede algehele ondersteuning van de oliën fysiek en emotioneel een top jaar hadden ❤️ 👩🏻🦰 Op persoonlijk vlak heb ik 2019 met de ondersteuning van verschillende oliën veel pijnlijke herinneringen, eigen opgelegde beperkingen, opgeslagen verdiet, trauma’s en alles wat me teveel energie kost met liefde mogen loslaten en hiermee ruimte geschaffen voor alles goeds wat het leven en het universum voor mij bereid houd. Laat staan dat ik me dagelijks uiteraard met de oliën en verschillende producten verzorg en opmaak, de diffuser vul met feelgoed Blends, het eten bereid en verrijk met plus oliën en ons huis chemicaliën vrij schoon maak 🤪🤩 👦🏼👧🏼 Mijn kinderen mocht ik in de eerste helft van het schooljaar ondersteunen op verschillende vlakken, van huiswerk geurtjes, de zenuwen kalmeren voor de eerste proefwerkjes, troosten, pleisteren, kusjes verdelen en het verzorgen op een zachte en natuurlijke manier. En ja hoe trots ik naar hun kijk om te zien hoe positief ze veranderen, hoe gezond ze opgroeien en zich zelf leren waarderen en dit ook te uiten. 🧔🏻Mijn man ondersteund zich inmiddels zelf en komt geregelt met een toevoeging van onze maandelijkse bestelling. Hij zet vooral op de verzorging, supplementen en de ondersteuning bij werkgerelateerd stress met olien. Ja hoor oliën zijn uitermate geschikt voor onze hubby’s.
2020 mag komen, ik/wij zijn er klaar voor ❤️ Ben jij dit ook? #365days#thankful#familygoals#holistichealth#selfemployedlife#mom#grow#createyourlife#essentialoils#oilywildlings#youngliving FOTOCREDITS BY MAKKE❤️
