What the Fall Season Does For Your Psychosis



"You can have results or excuse but not both." -Unknown

If psychosis is a "break from reality" then man oh man bring on a good, Fall day. 

A Fall day to create a new, yet real reality.

When I lived in DC, I lived on this street tucked into the suburbs of the city.  
It was cool and crisp in the Fall.  The leaves were as bright and colorful as you could daydream about. 
There on 37th Street, NW you could walk down the street and there would be a canopy of colored leaves over you. 


We would walk our dogs in with our neighbors in the afternoon. 
Sometimes, we'd finish the walk with a glass of wine and continue with each other's company.
Other times, we'd have hot tea, a fire and Eva Cassidy in the background.  Not kidding.  

When I tell you I love Autumn Leaves, I mean it. 
There's this beauty that is forced on you.  So much so that if you ignore it, you're the a@@hole.

So we embrace the good.  The colors.  The cold.  
And we create more from it.  

We created stronger friendships.  More peace.  More conversation. 
More balance. 
More time. 
Actually, in that time, we create a business partnership too. So, yes, we created money too. 

We took the life that was given us and we created more from it. 
We embraced what could be a negative... (Oh no! It's cold!)
And we ran with it.  We created magic from it. 

And so can you. 

LEAD. Lovelies.  Lead.

--> The store is back!!  Get out of your PJs, throw some makeup on and go shopping in a real-life store! They are back!  And more fun than ever!

-->  How fun would it be to work with your favorite brands and get paid for it?  My girl Janel is the best person I know doing this type of work.  She reaches out, connects with brands and gets them to work with her.  All through email.  She doesn't have the biggest blog.  Or the biggest following.  What she has is a killer awesome process.  That's she (I think) is giving away!!  Check out her email course on teaching others to connect with brands.  This truly could be a real income stream for you.  #thinkonit


--> You are not alone.  Even though you feel it.  You have to over communicate especially with a remote team!

--> This busier you are the more quiet time you need. Harvard says so.



--> AMAZON is taking over the world.  AND I LOVE IT!  Whole Foods is hiring 6,000!

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


--> This month, as we move into November and the holiday season, give yourself the (free) gift of not only knowing you're doing a great job but feel that way too!
