The One Where We PIVOT

The one where we PIVOT… “Let opportunities come from angles you don’t expect.” This is what the sticky note in my notebook said.

To be totally honest, it said “angels”- but that’s fitting too… even if it simply came from a spelling error.

Have you ever had a specific idea for something? You work really hard to make this big dream happen. You have ev.ery.thing. planned. Perfectly planned.

You have an idea for something to help people. Something they need.

You start working. Give it everything ya got.

Then something just doesn’t feel right.

Something shifts and you’re not sure why. But you keep chugging along anyway.

Then you get in front of a roomful of powerful businesswomen and when it’s your turn to talk about your business… you just break down and cry?

{Maybe you don’t relate so much to the last part, but you get the picture.}

Saturday, November 7th is the day my perfect plan pivoted.

Let’s back up a little. I want to introduce you to the Influencer’s Collective Mastermind. This is the most incredible group of women I’ve ever had the honor of working with.

It’s an elite community of women that help each other increase productivity, accountability, and profit within their businesses. It’s a space to invest in our connections, our growth, our prosperity, our business, and ourselves.

I went into this mastermind in October with a plan to start a business blog. To help business owners be master time managers through a course I was creating. Never, NEVER in a million years was I expecting to pivot into a new direct.

Throughout the mastermind, all of the women helped me develop some amazing ideas and opportunities to grow. I was excited. On fire. Ready. to. gooooo!!

Until I wasn’t.

Something just didn’t feel right. Yes, I was passionate about helping people within their businesses. But I couldn’t quite get excited about the things I was writing.

What if I ran out of content? What if I started getting repetitive in my posts? What if people just weren’t interested anymore? What if they got bored?

I felt like there was an expiration date on what I was doing. And it wasn’t as far in the future as I’d hoped.

I felt like there was an expiration date on what I was doing. And it wasn’t as far in the future as I’d hoped.

The Influencer’s Collective Mastermind met in Austin, TX for a weekend of business and strategy. A lot of work, and a lot of play. We came with our ideas, our plans, and our questions.

Want to know what I had?

Nothing.

I didn’t have a plan. I didn’t know what I wanted. I wasn’t excited anymore. I loved having the freedom that came along with having a blog, but the topic wasn’t sitting well with me anymore.

The most pivotal moment of the weekend is one I’ll never forget.

We broke up into two groups to strategize and talk business. My friend Louise immediately looked me straight in the eyes and said “Your vibe has totally shifted. What’s wrong?”

I lost it.

After what felt like an eternity of gruelling conversation and more tears than I ever wanted an entire group of women to see, something even better came to fruition.

That group of strong, creative, supportive, uplifting, powerful women empowered me to follow my heart. To pour into others in ways that felt natural and exciting to me.

They gave me the permission I wasn’t giving myself to re-evaluate and change directions.

To pivot. Expand.

So, here it is, world! A brand-new blog!

Different than before. Better than before.

It’s more than business. Wayyyy more. And I can’t wait to share it all with you.

Is it overwhelming? A little. But overwhelmed is a choice. And I’m choosing to be grateful. Happy. Excited. Joyful. Encouraged.

Friend, you’re not a tree. If you feel like you’re not in the place you’ve been called to be – move.

You can do hard things. You just have to make your mind up and do it.

You don’t have to listen to the negative, limiting non-truths your mind is going to make up along the way. Do it.

You are unique. You have a purpose and a calling. Do it.

What exactly is this mastermind I’ve been talking about? It’s the Influencer’s Collective Mastermind. 

One of my favorite quotes is from Kristen Boss. She says “Investment in your business ensures your commitments. It’s also like writing the check to go faster.”

Investing in your business means you’re investing in yourself. In your success.

It’s also critical that you’re surrounding yourself with people who lift you up. Who make you better. Who push you do to more. Make bigger goals. Do things that scare you. Because they see your potential. They know what you’re capable of.

If you’re wanting to elevate yourself and your business (or if you’re even thinking about starting a business), invest in yourself. Invest in your success.

The Influencer’s Collective isn’t just for picture-perfect Instagram Influencers.

It’s for the mama wanting to grow her side-business.  

For the shift-worker who’s exhausted and trying to find the right path.

For the realtor wanting to reach new heights.

For the niched creative working to build a strong brand.

For any woman who is serious about taking the next action-filled steps to moving her business forward.   

If this is you- I encourage you, with everything in me, to join us for the next Collective… January 2021 it’s coming for ya!

You can sign up for the waitlist HERE, or please feel free to reach out with any questions you may have.
