when i graduated college, i definitely did NOT think i’d be an entrepreneur and navigating the waters of owning my own business(es). but, alas, here i am— out in the deep waters of creating (and never looking looking back)!
_ 
in honor of #nationalentrepreneursday, i thought i’d share 10 of the most important things i’ve learned since starting out:
_
✨BUSY ISN’T AN ACCOMPLISHMENT. it doesn’t make you more successful. it’s not a badge of honor. chase slow living — life is better that way.
_
🍦BE A GOOD BOSS (to yourself). make time for self-care (it’s a real thing!), set boundaries, celebrate the little things, and take the weekends off.
_
🎉SPEND MORE TIME CELEBRATING others instead of comparing yourself to them.
_
👯‍♀️SURROUND YOURSELF WITH A TRIBE of like-minded humans who believe in the impossible + who dare to move mountains.
_
✌🏻IT’S OKAY TO SAY “NO” TO THINGS. it takes courage to do a few things, and do them well. you can make a bigger impact when you are not spread thin. 
_
⚡️PLAN for every project and idea to take 10x more effort than you think it’ll take. 
_
🌹MAKE UNEXPLAINABLE GENEROSITY YOUR LIFE MANTRA. share your wisdom, be generous with your words + kindness, be giving of your time + skills, and don’t hold back from going the extra mile to help a friend in need. generosity always opens doors of opportunity.
_
🦄 SPEND MORE TIME SPEAKING FAITH over what you hope to see happen in your life / business / and dreams than you do worrying about your current situation.
_
🍷GOOGLE IS THE BEST TEACHER. don’t let what you don’t know keep you from exploring new territory or trying new things.
_
💕✨INVOLVE GOD IN YOUR WORK. when you surrender your work, your ideas, your dreams, your skills to God and involve him in your work — he’ll always multiply your efforts and elevate you to unexplainable platforms.
_
to all my fellow entrepreneurs — YA’LL ARE AMAZING. carving your own path isn’t easy — but you’re doing it and you’re making a difference. what’s the biggest thing you’ve learned? share, share, share!

"far better is it to dare mighty things, to win glorious triumphs, even though checkered by failure... than to rank with those poor spirits who neither enjoy nor suffer much, because they live in a gray twilight that knows not victory nor defeat." - theodore roosevelt
_
it's hard to dare mighty things. because, it's not just a one time thing, you can't dare just once. you have to wake up every morning + make a conscious choice to keep on daring— even when obstacles / challenges / failures / and disappointments keep on stacking up against you. while at times it may feel hopeless, hold onto truth and to the conviction that led you to dare greatly to begin with. give your attention to God and what he is doing in and through you. because he will attend to you, take pride in you, and do his best for you. he will sustain you, strengthen you, and be faithful to you. he is your hope. he will fulfill every promise and you will see GLORIOUS TRIUMPHS!
_
may we take courage + not back away from daring mighty things. we will see glorious triumphs!

you'll never know what you are capable if you stay where you are. you'll never know what you could have accomplished if you don't get up and try. you'll never know the impact you could have if you don't start.

_
it's time to stop making yourself small. it's time to stop discounting yourself. it's time to stop hiding behind the shadows. you have a purpose and your dream is significant.

_
make the decision: the days of taming your wildness are over. you've got big things to do in the world, friend. get on the way. take the first step.

i was talking to my friend today— and they said “you’re on fire today…” and i responded and said, “because, i’m baaaaaack!” _ 
_
i’m back. 
i’m back to myself. 
i’m back to who i was created to be. 
_
this year — gosh, it’s been a doozy. the beginning of the year sent me for a loop and i really struggled with burnout. and not just “i’m a little tired” burn out — i’m talking about “stay in bed for days and do nothing but cry” burnout. there were so many times i sat down to write — and i didn’t have any words. there were so many times i sat down to work — and i didn’t have anything to give. there were so many times i would get frustrated with myself— not understanding why i wasn’t able to “get past it” and produce. but, i came to terms — this is where i was in this season of life and i was going to extend grace to my tired and weary soul.

_ 
it’s been months— months of extending grace to myself, months of holding onto hope, months of believing that my best days were still ahead… 
_
and, i’m here— standing. finally experiencing the light at the end of the tunnel where the sun is shining on my face and all is well in the world again. so, yes! for the first time in a long time — i feel like i’m me again. i’m back. 
_ 
to all my friends who feel a little weary from the journey — give yourself a little grace. remember, your best days are still ahead of you. the tunnel doesn’t last forever. but you’ve gotta give yourself grace and take one step at a time, one day at a  time. lighten your load, get rid of the distractions— you’ll get there. and, when you do —it’ll be magnificent! and life will crescendo like a sleeping at last song and it will be beautiful.

i can’t stop thinking about “capacity” tonight.
_
you will never be able to increase your capacity until you leave your comfort zone — so get out there. start moving.
_
there are things in this world that YOU were meant to accomplish – and you can’t do them at your current capacity. you’re going to have to expand. yes, at some points, it’s going to feel hard. but you can do it. you are strong. you have it in you.
_
you are not bound by normal limitations — because your ability to believe will never catch up with God’s ability to perform in and through you. God wants to do IMMEASURABLY MORE than you could ever ask or imagine.
_
speak to your limitations — remind them: “limitations, you cannot hold me back. i’ve got things to do, i’ve got dreams to accomplish, i’ve got visions to live out! and i intend to grow and expand in my capacity in accordance to how God made me.” _
@peptothetalk, pass it on.

it's time to get rid of the excess -- all the things that are slowing you down from reaching and accomplishing your goals.

_
it's time to get rid of fear.
it's time to get rid of jealousy and comparison.
it's time to get rid of insecurities.
it's time to get rid of doubt.
its time to get rid of old ideas and habits.

_
throw them out. you don't need them anymore. you were chosen to do something great and magnificent in this world -- and all those things are hindering you from accomplishing your purpose.

_
it's time to run with perseverance, fixing your eyes on the prize / the goal / the dream / the vision. you got this. 
_
@peptothetalk, pass it on. tag a friend.

DIVE INTO THE DEEP WATERS OF CREATING.
_ 
because when you create, when muster up the bravery to pursue your ideas and dreams— you, in turn, empower someone else to do the same.
_
see whether you realize it or not — the world around you is watching. they are waiting to see what you do — if you’ll get off the sidelines and pursue the ideas you’ve been talking about or if you’ll stay in your comfort zone.
_
and, whatever you decide, they’ll follow your lead.
_
if you stay on the sidelines and play it safe, they’ll think to themselves “i should stay here in the comfort zone, too.”
_
but, if you move— if you dare to follow your passion, your imagination, and your heart— they’ll follow your lead and you will unconsciously pass on the baton of courage to someone else.
_
and when the baton of courage is passed on from one person to the next — magic happens.
_
so, let’s get off the sidelines. let’s dare to move mountains, disrupt culture, and live well. let’s pass on the baton of courage to the dreamer next to us.
_
double tap or leave ❤️s if you are ready to get off the sidelines with me.

sometimes you just gotta go for it.
_
too often we get stuck in our own heads when it comes to creating— we let ourselves stay in a corner because we’re afraid of what people are going to think, what they’ll say. we’re afraid that our art / creation / ideas may be too much for people or that it’ll be misunderstood.
_
but, so what — what if it is misunderstood and what if it is not received with the highest praise?
_ 
did it make you happy? did it make your soul come alive? did it bring you peace, joy, and fulfillment?
_
if yes,  then keep on creating. because that’s what matters.
_
i can only imagine what people said about leonard knight when he set out to create salvation mountain— an art piece in the middle of the california desert. with bright bold colors + adobe clay, he created a masterpiece that proclaims the love of God in such a powerful way.
_
while some describe it as “outsider art” + some may not understand it— it is art. and while it may not be understood by everyone— no one can take way from the fact that it’s uniqueness, boldness, and powerful simplistic message has resonated and spoken to so many others.
_ 
see that’s the thing about art, creating, and putting your ideas out there— it may not resonate with the masses but that’s okay. what matters is that it resonates with you — the creator. and if it resonates with you, if it speaks to your soul, and brings you fulfillment — then somewhere out there— there’s going to be people like you who see life through the same lens as you and who will enjoy your creations too.
_
and that’s what we have to keep our eyes on.
_ 
so, let’s go for it! let’s be the idea people that don’t create for an applause— but create because it sets our souls on fire + fulfills the deepest corners of our being. because, then, and only then — will we be able to take the limits off ourselves + create to the best of our ability.

i told myself that this next season was going to be about bringing the magic back into my life. it can sound so whimsical— but, in truth— it’s been a very practical journey.
_
it’s been choosing to set boundaries, getting rid of the “should do’s” and keeping the “must-have’s”. it’s been deciding that work can wait til monday morning and embracing the weekend. it’s been forgiving myself and accepting grace for not meeting all my goals and realizing that tomorrow is still full of opportunity. it’s been choosing to create just for the fun of it and venturing outside of my routine to enjoy life again.

_
you see— we’re able to live well— full, extravagant, and magnificent lives when we’re intentional to slow down and enjoy. and, if we want to experience the magic in our lives, then we have to make room for it. 
_
needless to say, experiencing joshua tree at golden hour this weekend was just what i needed. it was a piece of magic i am thankful i carved out time for.

getting very excited about a weekend getaway with my girls to palm springs this weekend. but in the mean time, sitting in bed listening to sleeping at last feeling incredibly thankful for everyone’s response to my new podcast — @thedaringromantics!💫 __
the process of creating can be so messy sometimes. but, let’s decide to be the people who never stop daring to move mountains, disrupt culture, and to live well. let’s be the people who see with our hearts before we see with our eyes. and, who believe against all odds that things are going to line up for us and be beautiful.

__
it’s our faith + obedience to follow our ideas that’ll pave the way for the miraculous to happen.

__
so, no matter what happens— can we promise each other that we won’t give up? that we won’t lose faith? and that we’ll always be daring believers, dreamers, and visionaries? 
__
double tap or leave ❤️ if you promise to stick this out with me!

we’re all in this together.
