Me equals your cheerleader. Minus the pom-Poms.

This place is for us to talk shop on a life worth living. One you never thought you could have, but the one you just can't get out of your mind.

I'm a walking contradiction.  That used to confuse the crap outa me.  Now, I see it as one of my greatest powers.  I love the push and pull that is challenging everything I have ever believed while still standing on the foundation I grew up on.  Through the adventure of finding myself and who I want to be - I've learned gratitude, empathy, patience, selflessness, and curiosity.   And that laughter and good friends are the best medicine.

You don’t get a new you.

You have to choose a new life. Then, you chase it through the grittiness of the everyday.

For the rest of your days.
— Me

I've been shown the life I want because many have chosen to live out loud and share their story.  Thanks, bloggers and Youtubers.  They share where they came from, where they found themselves at their lowest, where they are now and their dreams for their future.  I found myself in them, see which parts I want to replicate, learn how to do it, and attack my goals.  That is how I have envisioned and am working towards creating the life of my dreams and I hope that by me sharing my journey and what I have learned along the way you will be encouraged to design and conquer your own.

I think that the best way to get to know each other and connect is by coming together at the foundation of life.  Here we will talk everyday life, faith, relationships, homes, self-care, business, and fun.  I can't wait to have you come along.  Don't forget, this is a two way street.  I want to hear from you too.

The scoop. Icebreaker Style.

p.s. I like to make reference to terms from my agriculture roots whenever possible.  It keeps me grounded.  Also, you're up next.

 
 

1. What would you be doing if you weren't at your current job?

I feel really lucky that I get to answer this with — the same thing I'm doing.  I love what I do. 

2. What more are you wanting in your career right now?

I want to actually make money.  I have so much I want to do and have avoided making anything make money.  I need to make money so I can build a team and pour into people the way I envision.

3. If you knew that in one year you would die suddenly, would you change anything about the way you are living right now?

Yes.  Boy do I hate this question.  I need to get my personal life in order.

4. Describe your biggest failure in business.

How bout a failed business. Ya, that happened.

5. What is one word you would use to describe yourself as a child?

Confused

6. How do you recharge?

I'm in introvert.  I do my best recharging alone.  Chilling out, dreaming and planning.

7. If you were to tell one person "Thank You" for helping me become the person I am today, who would it be and what did they do?

If I can only pick one it would have to be my FFA Advisor.  He taught me how to care about people no matter who they were, how they treated you, where they came from, or what they were struggling with.  He was a undeniable man of Christ.  He was silly even when it made him uncool in some of the kids eyes.  He believed in hard work and made me believe that I was worth pouring in to.  A lot of other things I can't type without tears in my eyes.  I didn't know to the degree he had an affect on me until adulthood, but I know God placed him in my life on purpose.  I'm so thankful. 

8. What one thing about you do you want in your elegy?

I want to be known for how I made people feel.

Not holding myself to my own goals and priorities. Yuck.

11. What one memory do you most treasure?

A day filled with meaningful work, time with my little family, having meaningful conversation with my husband and dreaming/planning for the future.

Macro patience, micro speed. Thanks, Gary Vee.

14. How do you think your coworkers see you?

My dogs think I hung the moon...I think.  

15. How do you act when you're stressed out?

I am either mean or I shut down.  I am proud of neither.

16. What are you most afraid of and what's it stopping you from doing?

Judgement.  All the things I share about here — speaking my truth, owning a successful business, being healthy mentally and physically.  I'm working on it. "Don't judge me." ;)
