Motivation Monday...

It was approximately 2 and a half years ago when I moved from LA to NYC...
 I can't believe it has gone by so fast. 
Just the other day while browsing the web for some tabletop inspiration for an upcoming shoot, I stumbled upon this photo (above), it was my very first attempt at styling for my own business. While working with the owner of Luxury Monograms on something else, I threw this little look together on a whim and snapped a photo. After that I was immediately hired to come up with lookbook/campaign ideas and style it out. Now I see this image all over the place, especially on Pinterest
This picture was the birth of my styling career and I just have the fondest memories. It really reminds me that the only thing you have to do to go after your actually just do it. 
I have really enjoyed working with you guys on fulfilling your dreams. I've watched tons of you create the most beautiful blogs after reading my blogging success book + now coaching you all into starting your own businesses has just inspired me to go next level myself. I love watching my peeps succeed!
Want something to look forward to?
Well a crew of us are making our way to Las Vegas this summer to tell our stories about how we turned our blogs into our dream careers and how we keep them going...its going to be so much fun! 
Save the date... July 29th.

Mondays are for Motivation...

Things are getting really fun around here right about now...
I'm not quite sure if it is the excitement that summertime is here or if it's that half of the year is almost over and I am getting a whole new jolt of energy. It seems that business is booming for everyone, which means good things are happening to al of us. Whatever the case, this morning when I sat down at my desk, I realized something... I am feeling extremely motivated, inspired, excited and ready for new things. So this week my blog posts might be a little different from the usual, I want to step outside of the norm and try some new things but first, I must get down to what the bare backbone of what my blog and business is.
Interior designer. E-decorator. Stylist. Creative Director. Author. Business Coach. Consultant. 
That's a lot of freaking titles. I am so honest to goodness thankful for blogging (oops. I forgot to add that one to the list) It helped me create a career and fulfilling business that I am absolutely in love with and I have control as to how far it can go. Isn't that exciting? Thank God I stepped out of my comfort zone and took a risk. (You can read all about my story and strategy here)
While I was on a business coaching call with a mentee last week, I realized something. I do a lot of different things. She asked me about time management and how I get so many things done. I had about 17 different answers, but one of my main points to her was that I didn't wait around until everything looked perfect until I stepped out and tried something. I would just get up, create an idea and run with it. I constantly change things up but at the end of the day... I JUST DO IT. 
My dad (super entrepreneur) always told me to make sure that whatever I do, do good work and that will always bring about success. I could not agree more. 
However, I like to take things one step further. I usually spend Monday mornings planning out my week, looking at instagram or pinterest for motivating articles and quotes. I am always taking on new seminars or workshops to expand or grow my vision and I'm always reading books that encourage, motivate and inspire. I'm always on the move, thinking of new ideas and trying new business ideas on for size. The possibilities are endless and by all of the emails/questions I get from you, my lovely readers, I know you are all on the same path too. Whether you want to redecorate your home, your life, your job or your relationships...change, growth and pushing forward consistently is the key. 
 Know that today, like every other day, you just have to get up and get it done. 
How's that for some motivation?
