We can't control many things outside of ourselves but we can control our internal choices and reactions. If you're unhappy, choose what you're willing to change. Create your #dailymomentum and move forward. Tiny steps at first. Then larger ones. Until you're in a full-tilt boogie, friend!

For many years I have struggled with hiding my happy. Always finding something wrong with a situation to share, too. Being careful not to share too much happiness. Always having a light and a dark of any story to tell.

I'm not certain exactly certain where this started but it's been a theme for me. Honestly? I live a pretty awesome life. I've run two businesses that I'm passionate about for 14 years. I have a great marriage. I consciously make time for adventure and fun. I do well financially. I have wonderful friends. And yet ... I always downplay that.

Something within me always wants more. Isn't that the human condition? Something within me tells me that I can't be happy unless I get "there" or do "that."

I'm a motivated individual. It's part of my DNA. I will always be striving and that is something to actually be celebrated but that part of me isn't exclusive to enjoying the moment I'm in today. So, I'm going to be more mindful not to hide my happy.

Are you with me? If so - tell me one of your happy moments in the comments, please! I'd love to celebrate with you!

Pause for a moment. Ask yourself what habits you tend to fall into again and again and again that hold you back. Don't focus on specific people or events. Instead, look at the undercurrent of the habit. Why do you let those people in? Why do those events keep happening? How are you devaluing yourself again and again?

Then ask yourself - how much positive energy are you willing to allow into your life? Don't settle. Focus on what you want and go for it. This means ...
🤚 Setting boundaries.
🎉 Asking for what you want.
😍 Being receptive to people helping you.
😫 Not playing the victim.
😱 Being responsible for your actions.

This also means ...
😁 Happiness
💃🏽 Standing strong in your worth
💁🏻 Making conscious decisions
💆🏻 Peace of mind

Itching to (finally) launch that brilliant business idea you’ve been stewing on for years? Then it’s time to join the Daily Momentum Business Coaching Course. This 6-Step process is for holistic business owners and creative freelancers ready to launch their business OR refine what’s not quite working. If you’re like I was 14 years ago and just winging it and struggling alone ... it’s time to stop that nonsense. •

This course is broken up into 30 bite-sized trainings and is complete with templates, resources, and guides. By the time you’re done, you will be ready to create leverage with your business and be CLEAR about what you do and what you offer! •

Still not sure? Here is Steve’s full testimonial: “A friend of mine recommended I contact Katie for help in building a concept I had into an actual business. This concept - life coaching for men - was something I had been thinking about doing for years but I had made almost no progress on my own in that time. I knew Katie was a good fit for me before the end of our initial call. I signed up for business coaching and branding services with Katie and I am so glad I did. In less than 4 months I have taken that concept I have been thinking about for years to a fully launched and operational business complete with a professional website, a well defined and strategic business funnel with multiple equally well defined product/service offerings, and a working strategy for building my email list in conjunction with a specific and targeted marketing strategy. In working with Katie, I accomplished in less than four months what had taken me years trying to do on my own and would have taken me more years to implement without her help! And oh wow, don't even get me started on the professional AND personal breakthroughs I have had while working with her. Katie is a great business coach and talented branding expert! I highly recommend that any budding entrepreneur or existing business owner looking to up level their business work with her!”

Getting closer and closer to meeting baby girl Craig. As each day passes, I feel my energy settling more. My body is craving rest. I can’t lie, being pregnant with my 1st child throughout COVID has been an emotional and often very lonely experience. More on that at another time. I’ve come to find though that I am very grateful for the timing because for years I knew that I couldn’t possibly run my businesses and have a child. I was stretched too thin, doing too much and working too many hours. I couldn’t step away for any kind of maternity leave and sustain the income I had or even potentially keep my clients if I was MIA for 2+ months ... not to mention how to juggle everything when I started back up again. This kept me from truly entertaining the idea of a family for a long time (I’m 38 now). Finally, around 36, my husband and I decided we wanted to at least try but in order to do that, I had to change some habits and the way I was running my business. Slowly, I began to shift. 🎉 I set stronger boundaries around my work hours and my time off (a HUGE gift to myself) 🎉 I hired more team members to step in and take on important aspects of the business. This took time. Some worked out, some didn’t. I learned a lot. Now, I love my team and they provide SO much peace of mind for me as we share the load. 🎉 I started working virtually 100% about a year ago and with COVID I’m so glad I took that leap because I was ahead of the game (thank goodness bc I was already 4 months pregnant when COVID hit). 🎉 I synthesized all of my business and branding must-have-tips into an online course. This is used in my VIP coaching as an educational guide along with my 1:1 coaching and creates passive income for those that want to go through it on their own. IN FACT, the cart is open through 5p Mon EST if you want to get your hands on it! >> Link is in my bio << 🎉 I narrowed down my focus to only what I can handle right now. Realistically, I have a million ideas but I know I can only do so much once this sweet baby girl arrives. •

Timing is never perfect but your preparation can be mindful and intentional as you set yourself up for success. #dreamondreamer

One of my all-time favorite things to do is help businesses simplify how they work with clients. I LOVE IT. Do you want to know why? Because this is something I see TOO many business owners struggling with. 🤔 It’s hard to put it into words. 🥴 It’s hard to describe what you do clearly and succinctly. 😖 It’s hard to organize your offerings and your marketing to get the word out. 😬 It's hard to know where to start.

Do you know what makes all the difference in the world? 💥 Strategy. 💥
When I started out I wanted to help anyone. Sound familiar? 😉 It pained me to think about narrowing down who I was working with. (If this is you, I can definitely help!) But I was also completely overwhelmed trying to structure a message that appealed to everyone. That’s a lot of pressure! ​

I began to notice that my most favorite clients were holistic business owners focused on wellness so I decided for a little bit I would focus just on them and you know what? My client base grew. Fast. People in the holistic community started sharing my name and more people started calling. ​

SO ask yourself ... 🌟 What brilliance do you bring to the table? 🌟 What strengths are you hiding from yourself, your business, and your clients? 🌟 Where is your message getting muddy because you're trying to help everyone? 🌟 Who do you truly LOVE to work with?

Your next steps: ✔️ Get totally honest about those areas you’re passionate about. ✔️ Build your confidence in stating how you can help and what you offer (and not in an “if this sounds good/maybe we can work together kind of way). Truly OWN your brilliance. ✔️Broadcast what you offer! Don’t be afraid to talk about it. People need to see things multiple times to get comfortable and act.

Every change. Every chance to up-level. Every new endeavor. I plan, I survey the leap, I take a deep breath and I jump. Sometimes I make it and it feels amazing. Exhilarating. Sometimes I fall short and I have to take a hard look at why. My pride is hurt. It feels personal at first. I get frustrated. Sometimes I try to blame something outside of me briefly. But then I remember I’m in control. Even of my shortcomings. So, I shake it off. I reconnect to why I leapt in the first place. I get back up. I try again. And so the cycle of progress goes. That’s how you create daily momentum. •

Yes yes yes yes yes!!! This goes for ... ✅ your business services ✅ your unique gifts
✅ your personality ✅ your talents
✅ your truth
✅ your wisdom
✅ the ways you know you can help
Withholding your brilliance from the world isn’t doing anyone any good. It causes you to hide which can be painful and uncomfortable. And, it hides a solution to a problem others are having. Don’t be afraid to own your brilliance and help others with it. 💕

Next thing I knew, I was on the floor. Chin split open, checking my teeth are all intact with my tongue. •

This photo was taken about 6 years ago. I was teaching myself how to do hand stands. I’d been using the wall for support and safety, slowly moving away a little at a time to test my own strength and balance. •

This particular night I was feeling like I had it. I was ready. Unassisted handstand. THIS was my night! •

Next thing I know, I’m in a crumpled mess on the floor and my chin in busted open 🤣 😳 The only band aids I had were Iron Man. Not so helpful on a split chin by the way! •

Sometimes in business, you will inch and inch your way to being ready. Practicing and practicing. When you finally feel ready, sometimes you fall flat on your face. And it sucks. And it hurts. And your ego is bruised. You’ll be scared to try again. Nervous to be strong and ready and confident. •

But you will heal. You will be strong and ready again. And you know what? You’ll do it BETTER. Because you learned. You know what not to do now. You know your edge. •

Have you been hiding? Fearful to try again? Is that inner voice urging you to try again? Is your spirit nudging you that it’s time? •

Listen closely. That voice doesn’t lie. Give me a 🔥 in the comments if you’re feeling that fire in your belly lately but feeling a little nervous.

Every entrepreneur deals with comparison. As we strive to grow our businesses, gain new clients, and hone in on our niche, we can easily get swept up in the negative side of comparison: 😒 That person makes WAY more than I do. 😒 Their marketing is SO much better than mine. 😒 Their audience is SO much more engaged. 😒 Their list is SO much bigger. 😒They are WAY more visible/polished/fit/professional. 😒They’re booking MORE clients than I am. •

These are real comparisons that I’ve heard out of the mouths of nearly every client or small business owner I know! I’ve used a few of them as well. But what if I told you that not all comparison is bad? •

In fact, sometimes comparison can be a GOOD sign. A sign that you are ready to 💥level up 💥 in your business. •

Read more on why in the blog! https://dailymomentum.com/daily-momentum-coaching-blog/ • 👇🏼 Tell me the last comparison thought you had in the comments! 👇🏼 I’ll share mine in the comments, too! •

Had such a fun chat with @elizabethaimages this morning about brand photography and why it’s so important for small businesses. •

We covered
1. Why branding photography matters for small businesses.

2. What you should think about when hiring a brand photographer.

3. How to prepare for a branding session.

4. How to use branding images once you have them. •

She is spot on that people want to hire people they feel connected to! Your brand imagery is one way to create that organic connection in your business. •

Today felt good. It’s been months since I was able to get on a hiking trail because of coronavirus. My mental reset has always been in nature. My physical strength comes from outdoor activities. I gardened a lot. Spent time taking walks with my dog. Did yard work. Spent time in my yard. But I craved the expansive views. Moving my body through the trees. Breathing in fresh air and Mother Nature. I missed this so much. It felt so good to be back. In a world that feels so uncertain right now, this is my happy place. Where is your happy place? •
