HOW TO RUN RETREATS 💗 Today Lauren @the_nutritionist_foodie and I are running our fourth @thereset_me retreat - a day retreat called Press Pause. It’s at the gorgeous @orlaghhouse and we can’t wait to meet our 25 amazing guests and share with them our practical tips for wellness, that actually work in busy lives 👊🏼⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
Someone asked me recently if I would do a post or training about how to run a retreat. Is that something you’d be interested in? 🤔⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
I thought I’d share three simple tips if you are considering running a retreat of your own: ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
💫 COLLABORATE - I have adored being able to work with Lauren on @thereset_me - she brings so much to an event that I can’t do myself. We became accountability buddies to get stuff done and our skill sets compliment each other. Definitely don’t feel you have to do it alone. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
💫 RESEARCH VENUES - we spend a lot of time looking for the right venue and we’re not really willing to compromise. We need the right feel for our guests to get the benefits of what we’re sharing. Spend some time and put together a basic spreadsheet to compare the facilities, costs and location. It will make your event if you get it right.⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
💫 GET READY TO SELL - those of you who attended my How To Sell Masterclass will know my journey with embracing selling and it all started from wanting to get people booked onto The Reset. Don’t think it will be easy. You need to get clear on who your retreat is for and what value you’re offering them when they attend. It’s a messaging game and we’re constantly tweaking it to reach our ideal customers 💗 ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
Have you ever thought about running your own retreat? 👇🏼
Hey, look, we just found our limit. We have more opportunities to grow our business in size, impact, and financial status than ever before.⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
Heck yeah, that's exciting and inspiring!⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
At the same time, it's scary as shit. That means as the CEO of your small business you are responsible for the successes and downfalls. And in our world of accessibility, there are fewer excuses for not succeeding. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
Talking about the pressure! Urgh...it might feel like you're being judged and watched constantly.⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
Here's the down-low...run your business as if no one else is watching you. Embrace the mistakes that you've made in the past and welcome the new ones. Because there will be more of them.⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
The difference is to avoid making blind mistakes. You know...the ones that you made without measuring the consequences. Instead, track your activities and decision making so that you can gauge patterns. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
Now give yourself permission to reach for the sky and beyond!⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
Comment with a 🌟 if you're guiding your business beyond the limits.
How good do you feel?
➡️Musts for Monday, Start with Sunday!
Yeah, I just made that up!😁
Strolling into Monday prepared & ready to rock it!! It's nonnegotiable for me!
It took some considerable effort to successfulluly wake up with energy✔
have food prepared & packed✔
Plan what I will be training on Monday and at what time✔
Keeping the list of work tasks in check✔ but IT IS so worth it! .
We all know how productive we can be at work when we time block,🔔
Schedule 📆, have the musts written 📝, numbers📈 to go by, and priorities! It as simple as 📒✔✔✔✔
Why, do some of us only have the structure at work? Including it in the rest of our busy days may be just what's missing.
Taking days off and relaxing are crucial but to perform well in most areas allowing a little time to plan is key.🔑
Getting thrown of by the details is more likely to occur when you never have a plan. It creates too many options, distraction, and hurdles.
✔So LIMIT them!
Are you a planner? Are you time efficient off the clock?

Sis, spill your tea! There is someone out there who needs to hear your story!
Hi, I’m Jae and I am a recovering closet story teller.
When starting our business, I hid behind my story. (The one where I was fired from my job. Living home with my parents again. Single. And just not cute on paper).
🤮 I thought in order to connect with our audience, I should be less informative about where I’d come from.
🤮 I thought my ugly truth was uninspiring and would make people lose respect for me as a person and our business as a whole.
Guess what though?
Avoiding transparency was the exact thing that held our business back from success. 😒
It stopped us from connecting with our true audience.
And ultimately, trying to hold up this “it’s all good” persona was mentally exhausting.
Finally, I said ENOUGH hiding behind my pain!
I decided to be more candid.
I decided to share my ugly truth.
I decided to let my story be a testament to where I’d come from to show others in my position that there is still light at the end of the tunnel.
Slowly but surely, women, like me began to resonate.
And being able to help was my therapy!
Does this any of this sound familiar?
If you’re hiding behind your story,
🛑 you can’t reach your true audience.
🛑 you’re doing a disservice to the world.
People want to hear your struggle.
And find encouragement in hearing how you overcame it all!
Because no one is you and that’s your superpower.
So, it’s time to stop hiding in your story closet, Karen and spill your tea!
Do you agree? If yes, comment “SPILL THE TEA.”
And share this with someone who needs to share their story like, right now, right now!
LET’S TALK PRODUCTIVITY...IN BED! 🛏 ✅
📝 SUNDAY TIPS FOR A PRODUCTIVE WEEK 📝 (are you using these tips to plan for your week? Spill the tea ☕️! )
1. Prioritize your To-Do-List. Get it together girl! Start with the most important tasks to the least important. Use an app or productivity planner to keep your lists in order and avoid Post-It hoarding. Tick off your completed tasks as you go.
2. Inbox De-Clutter. Seriously, there’s nothing worse than a cluttered inbox! Take time to go through your emails. Delete the junk and take time to respond where necessary. Start your week off with a fresh inbox!
3. Goal Setting. Stop and reflect on the weeks and months you’ve completed. Make sure you’re on track and take a moment to create new goals for the up and coming week and months ahead. Ask yourself. Where are you now? Where do you want to be? What do you need to do/not do to be closer to your goals? Take notes and answer these questions. Also, Make sure you’re applying attainable goals and they’re not over the top.
4. Schedule Your Content. Girl! Cut your busy time in half by using an IG or social media scheduler like Planoly to arrange all of your posts for the week. It’s truly a lifesaver and keeps you from being all “omg what should I post” flustered.
5. Meal prep. Yup! Part of remaining productive is making sure you’re healthy. When we’re busy we forget to eat right and opt for quick foods and snacks (Yum, snickers, and Shake Shack)! Prep healthy snacks like veggies and fruit to keep your mental status on point and help you stay energized throughout the day. (Even if you work from your bed like us).
6. Plan to Rest and Relax. Self care is productivity! You can’t pour from an empty cup. Make time for you. Take a nap. Take a walk. Maybe even end your day early. Just make sure you take time for you!
Ok Luvs. Do you want more productivity tips from us? If it’s a YES comment “YASS...BEDHEAD”! 🛏 👏🏽

“You will never influence the world by being just like it.” - Unkown, but probably awesome!
𝐘𝐎𝐔𝐑 𝐁𝐔𝐒𝐈𝐍𝐄𝐒𝐒 𝐃𝐄𝐒𝐄𝐑𝐕𝐄𝐒 𝐓𝐎 𝐒𝐓𝐀𝐍𝐃 𝐎𝐔𝐓!
When we started our online business we opted for a blog because it was the best way to fully optimize our business. Yay! 🎊
However, the advice we were given was:
“Watch your competitors and do what they’re doing.”
Needless to say, that only put us in a stuffy little “same” box. Ewe.
It was wrong, it was definitely not us and it was the worst advice ever because our blog drowned in the sea of sameness! All wrong…Have you MET US? lol
Listen my wildly weird, awesomely flawed, fiercely freakish Hustlers… the world needs your “different”
and with an influx of online blog businesses, you definitely need to do things that will help you stand out against the masses from the start.
Here are 5 tips on how you can do that with ease, even and especially if you’re just starting.
1️⃣ A website is an absolute MUST! - Social media is cool and all, but Luv, you’re renting. You need real estate that you OWN to flaunt your biz!
2️⃣ Find your THANG and rock it!
3️⃣ Inject your TRUE personality. - Be YOU and don’t edit yourself for anyone!
4️⃣ Tell Your Story! - The one important thing that makes you unique is your story. Your why. Your journey. MENTION IT ALL!
5️⃣ Brand your biz consistently! - From your colors to your tagline. Make your biz memorable. Give it that je ne sais quoi.
Standing out is important. It’s what helps you be seen and helps your audience find you.
🔭 Get to know you.
Decide if they Like you.
And feel they can trust you.
But I want to hear from you. Have you started your online business, yet? What are you doing to stand out?
Nothing like relaxing in the patio with my girl, Guinness.
Summer in northwest is the best. And hammock time is 1000 times better than being locked in an office.
That’s what I was doing this time last year.
I was a prisoner to my laptop. I said yes to covering for coworkers and meeting deadlines whether or not they were realistic. I said yes to everyone. Well almost everyone.
I said no time to cooking.
I said no to hanging with my people.
I said no to kayaking on the lake.
I said no to hammock time with the pups.
I said no to my garden.
I spent my whole yes budget on someone else’s goal.
There is nothing wrong with work ethic. There is nothing to be ashamed of in sacrifice.
But if you never turn the work ethic toward your own ambitions and you are the only one sacrificing it will catch up with you.
It will eat away at you and you will find yourself with a big ol’ chip on your shoulder and a lot of resentment. And that will make you feel like garbage.
So just remember to say YES to yourself. In the big stuff and the little stuff. I promise it’s good for your mental health.
What is one area of your life you need to practice saying No?

You are capable of amazing things.
I committed to 💯
100 times I’d say yes to myself
100 times I’d love my body instead of complaining at it (chronic illness can really mess up that relationship)
100 times I’d find a way instead of an excuse
100 times prioritize my wellness over extra hours at work and favors for everyone else
100 times I’d say NO to make room for this YES
Today is 7/100
Did everything go perfectly all week? Nope.
Did I do it anyway? Yep! And that is what I choose to focus on.
This face. Bourbon, my barrel chested prince, loves the garden.
Today was a long day at the office and traffic was rough so the doggos had to wait a little longer for dinner.
To make it up to them we took them into the garden for a little extra adventure time.
Bourbon loves it. He smells everything like it’s the first time. He has this giddy look on his face from minute one to minute last.
Bourbon reminds me we need to be a little less “too cool for school” and a little more “how amazing is this”. Let’s be enthusiastic again, friends! Not just about the big earth shattering things but about the little daily moments.
Bring the joy, guys. It’s contagious. 📷: @ryanthomjohn

I love the idea of creating an inspiring home office space. Looking for home office inspo and I especially love the minimal lines and chic color palette in this space by @alabasterfox. Do you find inspiration from having a cool desk setup?
