✨DO ONE THING OUTSIDE YOUR COMFORT ZONE.✨
For me...midlife modeling career.
Jk, but I am getting lots of photos taken these days. ME! I always hated getting my picture taken. I’d look stiff and uncomfortable, fake smile...you know... all of it. ⠀⠀
Then on one of my business photo shoots, I decided I was done with hating it. After all, I was spending money to get photos taken! I visualized myself having fun, my personality showing through and looking beautiful. I never considered myself beautiful but that’s what I wanted. ⠀⠀
Now I always manage to have fun with it. When you do something outside your comfort zone a few times, that thing is no longer outside your comfort zone. ⠀⠀
True of riding a bike when you’re a kid. True of learning to read.
True of anything you do as an adult as well.
✨WHAT’S HOLDING YOU BACK RIGHT NOW? CAN YOU CHANGE YOUR MIND AND EMBRACE IT?✨
✨”I think people are becoming even better at following, but never learning to lead. They’re following instructions, following directions, following the pack and honing their skills- but hiding. Hiding from the fear of leading.” -Seth Godin, Tribes.✨
According to Godin, people aren’t born leaders. They aren’t the most beautiful, educated or wealthy people. They don’t have the highest IQs or the most talent. They’ve had failures and successes. ⠀⠀ .
Q: So if leaders aren’t born...and they aren’t the most...anything...what makes someone become a leader? ⠀⠀
A: They choose to lead. They feel passionately about something and they’re willing to talk about it. This attracts like minded people. They’re willing to lead and be the difference they want to see in the world. They unite people. They give them hope. Leaders bring out the best in others.
That’s a leader.
✨You’re a leader. ⠀⠀
✨WHAT IMPACT COULD YOU MAKE IF YOU WEREN’T HIDING?✨💕
Itttttt's here! Her Life by Design podcast trailer is up, and I'm officialy dropping episode 1 next Wednesday, August 29th. You can listen to the full trailer here at bit.ly/hlbdpodapple. Also follow the podcast here: @_herlifebydesign
Crazy excited to finally be able to share the conversations that I'm privileged to have with kick-ass women and the men who support us. It's been a while coming, bit, it's here and is a lesson for me in overthinking things.
What you do when there's no one to hold you accountable makes all the difference. I delayed sinking in getting this out because...life was happening. But, it could have been out much sooner. So, please take a listen, subscribe and share with a woman that you think could use the support.
This is another step in my journey toward empowering more women to live life boldly and outloud. Join me!
One of the benefits of working on my current job is I work with a lot of young people, aged 20's and 30's.
The other night I was talking with one of the department supervisors and I asked her how she was doing. She said, "I'm doing well, I'm living my dreams." There was so much energy in her words, so much hope. I said in reply, "I'm glad you're living your dreams!" Her energy was so contagious it gave me energy.
My question for today is, Are you living your dreams? Please leave an answer.
In lucid dreams, we wake up in a hyper-realistic, naturally creative environment where u can find ur highest state of creativity... So u can actually write amazing novels, create music or even drawings then wake up and write them down!!

रास्तों से कारवाँ तक
इस ज़मीं से आसमाँ तक.... documenting the stories within the journey .... art and leadership are two sides of the same coin . Incomplete without each other , complete when in sync with each other ... as the old age saying goes “politics is the art of the possible “ .. #dreamstoreality#artinleadership#makeithappen#nationalism
Doing my work...and yes, it has been LIBERATING and also... sorry to say but there is no other word...a Motherfucker of a process!!!! But what awaits on the other side is like a drug of freedom! If we don't change what isn't working in our lives, we will continually have the same day over and over again.
I’ve learned to embrace change. It's not always easy, but it doesn't have to be hard.
What I do know for sure is people who fear change live with the uncomfortable awareness that something needs to shift but won't do anything about it. I call it comfortable in the discomfort. The discomfort is what we KNOW! That makes sense to me. (Raise your hand if you can feel me here!!) Our lives are living, breathing entities that reflect our unique selves. The first step is remembering that your life is made up of many parts of yourself and that we also belong to an interconnected whole. Changing one thing can change everything.
Do you need to make a change in your life but are afraid to?
I'm offering a free conversation to my followers and friends to learn more about a unique process for you.
Find out how I can help you gain clarity, manage fear, and become empowered. (click the link in my bio let’s get started! You don’t want to waste another day once you decide! That’s what I’m learning for myself! Decide you want the life you envision!) I am not my sister's keeper, I am my sister.
Much love ❤️
Morning! There are so many BIG things going on right now and I’d love to share one with you. Anyone who knows me, knows I’ve wanted something business related of my own and wanting to really help people feel happy and look good (hence my beauty biz which I still LOVE doing and honestly some of my best days are when I get to see my clients). BUT I want more! I’ve wanted to help others more from the inside out, I want to help others feel good and you don’t need to do that by getting lashes or laser only. It starts from the inside, with health + wellness + healing. So I took a leap and joined a great friend @blondebazaar and biz who has the same intentions as me. This business allows me to be me and show others that with regular routine, and healthy habits mine AND your body will thank you and you can start the “feel good, look good” attitude. I’ve been using Isagenix products on and off for about a year now, and the only reason I was off was because I was trying to eat more by getting groceries from the markets. Turns out I LOVE being busy, Andrew and I LOVE road trips and adventuring (so eating fresh 24/7 can be a lot of work and then causes inconsistency, therefor eating things I’m not ok with or things my body legit regrets!)With that said, I am FULLY committing myself to this wellness journey, business opportunity, and getting out of my COMFORT zone with trying new things which includes me opening the door a little more to all my followers and friends about my life 💛 .
Part ll coming soon, stay tuned as @katherine.ironside And I have been brewing up some dreams we want to turn into real life! .
Please consider supporting my most recent podcast guest @gdwright_art and his project with a few other great artists that he’s trying to take to @burningman this year. The link is in his profile. Thanks!
#Repost from @gdwright_art. @muu_muse, @steefcrombach, and I are on the home stretch of bringing the largest piece any of us have built in Austin, to @burningman 2019. We’re busy busy in the lab trying to beat this heat and hit our deadline that is fastly approaching. Our crowdfunding campaign through @gofundme had a fantastic start, but has been puttering these last few days. We’ve raised enough to cover the metal and our mechanical system, but we are still short on transportation, event insurance, holographic vinyl, and the lighting. Please consider donating at www.gofundme.com/Infundibloom and helping us bring this dream to reality. If we can get it to the point we all dreamed it to be, you can expect seeing this bad boy at an event around Austin sometime in the near future. Also.. the perks for donating are super dope, check it out. Building big art is tough, and it takes a village. Thank you for everything. #dreamsofbigart#sculpture#monumentalart#dreamstoreality#artlife#austinartists#atxart#withourpowerscombined
“𝒮𝒽𝑒 𝓉𝓊𝓇𝓃𝑒𝒹 𝒽𝑒𝓇 𝓅𝒶𝒾𝓃 𝒾𝓃𝓉𝑜 𝓅𝑜𝓌𝑒𝓇 𝒶𝓃𝒹 𝒽𝑒𝓇 𝓋𝒾𝓈𝒾𝑜𝓃𝓈 𝒾𝓃𝓉𝑜 𝓋𝒾𝒸𝓉𝑜𝓇𝓎.” We all have that one goal that just feels so out of reach. We set our minds to believe that, we will never have enough time, or its too hard, or we are not worthy enough, or we aren’t meant to have it, we will never achieve it.
Sound familiar? Come on y’all! I know I’m not alone.
Well, I’m done making excuses for myself.
Im done thinking that I’m not 𝕄𝕖𝕒𝕟𝕥 to have things, I’m not 𝕎𝕠𝕣𝕥𝕙𝕪 enough to make my dreams a reality, I’m not 𝐆𝐨𝐨𝐝 𝐄𝐧𝐨𝐮𝐠𝐡.
I’m ready to rise, friends. I’m ready to pull myself from my excuses. I’m ready to pull myself out of the muck. I’m ready to be more because I deserve more. I’m ready to put in the work because I am worthy of greatness. I am worthy of success.

And you are too! Your dreams are not out of reach, friends. If you want them, make them happen!! I’m out here making mine happen every day.
It’s so important to have a clear and focused plan on your business, otherwise you can end up like a busy fool not getting anything productive done over the weeks and months.
I know how much better I work when I have my week planned out, because it helps keep me on track and focused on the important tasks I have going on, without getting lost in the weeds.
I may not look like it, but I'm so disorganised usually, which is why I have to be super disciplined when it comes to achieving my goals.
I was always looking for a planner that had everything I needed to help me stay on top of things, but I could never find one that addressed all the areas I wanted it to... So I created one!
Here's how I plan my week for success... I write down what I want to achieve in a quarter, as this gives me my core priorities for the business and I use this as a reminder when I set my goals each week. This way I can ask myself, 'Are my tasks and to-do's in alignment with my quarter goals?' Then I can make sure I schedule in the tasks I need to do to help me achieve those goals.
I like to spend some time on a Sunday night thinking about my week and writing down what I want to accomplish. If you do this, remind yourself of your core priority from your quarterly goals - but don't feel like you have to cram everything in! It's ok to focus on one or two or to move things around if stuff gets in the way.
Plan out your days, allocate time to your tasks and remind yourself of what you want to achieve each night, and you'll be on your way to smashing serious goals in no time!

I now make the same amount working 2-3 days a week as I did working 5 💫 But that’s not the biggest perk of being my own boss 🙅🏼♀️ For me, it’s about the freedom – today I took a walk to the farm when I needed to stretch my legs, after spending the morning working from this spot in the garden because it’s finally not raining ☔️ Oh, and not having to wear a bra is pretty great too 😏
If you had more freedom, how would you use it? 💭
This never would’ve happened with Loney Engineering’s project management services! 🤦🏾♂️😂 Let us relieve your stress. Link in bio!
More Risk More Reward???
I don’t know about you but I hate unnecessary risk when it comes my money.
I want to be in control of my money & to do that I had to increase my knowledge about it. In fact, I increased my knowledge so much that I got into the financial industry so I could help others increase their knowledge.
It’s shocking how difficult it can be to get the right information, to be able to make the right decisions for you & your family.
There’s a lot of opinions out there & you have to be able to determine what is right for you...
•What do you believe?
•What are your goals?
•How much risk are you willing to take & do you fully understand it?
If you can align those things with the decisions you make with your money, you will have the confidence that you are making the right decision for you, not because someone tells you it is.
𝗪𝐇𝐄𝐑𝐄 𝐘𝐎𝐔𝐑 𝐅𝐎𝐂𝐔𝐒 𝐆𝐎𝐄𝐒 𝐘𝐎𝐔𝐑 𝐄𝐍𝐄𝐑𝐆𝐘 𝐅𝐋𝐎𝗪𝐒.
This is MY VISION written on an Index card.
I read this to myself every single morning when I get up. It talks about where I want my health to be, my income, my relationship with Kristen, my role as a father, and those I want to help and impact each day.
I write it in the present as if I already achieved it.
This is one of the most powerful things I have learned to do each day.
Here’s the thing. What you think about it and focus on is where you will put your energy to achieve whatever it is you want. Even subconsciously.
Your mind is such a powerful thing. For example, ever get a new car and when driving around town you notice that so many other people have the same car? That is your subconscious being in tune to what you are thinking about it. Your new car. It’s not that everyone all a sudden got the same car. It’s you are subconsciously in tune to noticing the same car around you.
The same goes for your Vision. When you write it down and constantly remind yourself of it throughout the day you find yourself seeing signs that you are on the right path and thus will be taking action in areas that will bring you closer to your goals. Sometimes without even thinking about it. Your energy naturally goes in the direction of your vision.
Some may call it hokey pokey and that’s ok. To each his own. However I have also learned that when trying to reach a big goal find someone who has what you have and do what they do.
And I have learned super successful people have a vision. They live it. They preach it. They read it. Every single day.
Hence I shall do the same.
No questions asked and I must say I’m starting to see a lot of it come together. .

"LaMelo Ball says he has faith in the pathway as he begins life in the NBL with the Illawarra Hawks.
And the NBA hopeful says he has confidence in his decision after watching Terrance Ferguson successfully make the jump in 2017.
Now a key fixture at the Oklahoma City Thunder, Ferguson chose the NBL over a college stint in a unique approach that has led others to follow.
"I felt it was best for me ... I really just talked between my family, they all liked it," Ball said.
"Yeah, T Ferg ... some people came from the States (previously) ... it works, so I trust it."
