Straight to the point. I talked with many, many, many, many women who are simply feeling terrible.
They don't see what I see.
It's not that any of us walking around saying "Woe is me, I feel terrible." But when you, when I, talk with them there are giant sighs that happen.
There is a struggle. A common struggle.
If only there were more time.
If only that distraction, that kid throwing up all over me moment. I don't have time for that.
If only I could have an IV drip of coffee. Of vodka or boxed wine. 😇
If only I had 10 more hands.
If only they would let me work 15 hours days on what I really want to do.
There's this common, collective and private sigh that happens.
And so over and over and over and over again I tell my girls, my colleagues and my friends.
"You are doing a great job!"
And guess what happens!
And they cry.
And I cry.
And I tell them again. "You're doing a great job!"
Because GIRL - this is it.
You are a powerhouse. You are crushing it.
I really really really believe that to be true, I know it to be true.
What I am sharing with you is a 5 Day Journey to Understanding and Feeling Great!
It's 5 days because if I gave you the whole thing at once, you'd look at it as another "thing" you have to do.
And you'd get overwhelmed and girl, I don't want to add to that list!
It's not a sales pitch. It's free.
It's for you. From me to you. Because I want you to be the confidant powerhouse I know you have deep within.
It's 5 emails. Each email has a real deal message and an activity.
A five minute activity for you.
OH and at least one free tool.
Why did I put this together?
Because. Because I am having the same conversation over and over and over and over again.
YOU ARE DOING A GREAT JOB!
If I want to be known for one thing in my life, helping one woman not only understand they are doing a great job but also feel that way would... well... complete my life.
That's the truth.
That's the goal.
Today I am giving this to you. No hidden agenda. No extra work for you.
I want you to walk into the next day, the next stage feeling awesome.

Think of it as a 5 Day Journey to Not Only Understanding You're Doing A Great Job but to Feel That Way Too!
LEAD. Lovelies. Lead.
--> You said: "My biggest struggle is getting stuck in my client work, and never having the time to focus on my own brand and my own goals..."
Girl, I feel you. I struggled with that too.
I had clients that were rude, inconsiderate, cheap and unappreciative and I was putting all my time and energy into making them more money than I was making.
WHAT? It was frustrating as all heck.
And then Adrienne Dorison's casually in one of our epic convos "My business is just as important as my clients."
And everything changed.
Why didn't I think of that before!!
--> Uber has a credit card now. I think they are taking from Amazon's playbook now. Anything and everything is open game.
--> Worth repeating... Facebook. Oh Facebook. As you probably know Facebook changed its algorithm again this week. Your organic reach for your Facebook page is going Kaputz and Facebook wants you to pay for the posts you want to be seen. A lot of people are freaking out but here a lot of people are wondering how this will last too. What about those great viral videos? Will those all be paid for? Either way here is what you need to think about.
Don't flip out. Think about your customer. How you can engage with them and connect with them.
--> "Productivity is about mind management, not time management" Google Calendar your way to optimized productivity. Cliff notes version: You're bad at estimating time. Start with small habits. Create weekly routines, not daily.
--> Give yourself smooth skin every darn day. I just started using Dermologica's Daily Microfoliant again and am LOVING it.
Quick side note from Ashleigh. Here are my most favorite tools ever.
- For audio motivation - Relentless by Tim Grover. I listen to him as I was in the mornings. My walk always becomes a power walk after listening.
- To focus during the day I love to focus@will. They say music helps you focus and for me it surely does. I blare the classical music. I am not sure how many people my age choose that over techno but either way I love it.
- Rosemarie Groner (from the Busy Budgeter) is a friend and I just LOVE how much she gives everything away. She tells you and anyone she can her detailed way to making money! Start with her Pinterest Strategy Guide that is worth every penny. Not. going. to. lie
LAST BUT NOT LEAST.
--> This week's podcast was so amazing! I interviewed Courtney Cowan from Milk Jar Cookies. She had a love of cookies and knocked it out of the park with an amazing company, brand, brick & mortar on the exclusive Wilshire Blvd in Beverly Hills AND now has cookies you can bake through William Sonoma!
