"Cooking is like snow skiing: If you don't fall at least 10 times, then you're not skiing hard enough." Guy Fieri
I have learned so many lessons from kids this week it's unreal.
So ... we are skiing again and in the midst of a giant storm.
And of course, it's me, who accidentally put us chairlift that went far up into the ski.
For me, I am just now getting comfortable skiing.
My 7 year old could race down every mountain in front of her with NO FEAR
My 5-year-old had a momentary well-deserved freakout moment
when we got off this chairlift in the midst of brand new
winds so bad it created a WHITEOUT.
Inside, I was freaking out.
On the outside, we stayed together and went slow.
What did my 5-year-old teach me?
Keep going even if you are completely afraid.
And then as we went, the air cleared, the wind slowed,
and there was fresh powder to ski on again.
It was fun and magical and we were together.
Having the best day ever.
What did my kiddos teach me?
Let your shoulders down and enjoy every moment.
Skiing this season has been eye-opening for me I re-learned and tried to keep up with my kiddos.
I could have sat in the condo and waited for everyone to come home.
Instead, I powered through my own fear,
had the best magical family day
and learned from my own sweethearts.
Keep going, no matter how slow you go and find a way to enjoy the process!

How others are managing...
--> Beat burnout. Gain control.
--> Great sales prospecting email templates. Really a nice summary!

Last but not least...
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.
