Absolutely! Yes! Oui!!
Having a coach or mentor is the best way to increase your results in any aspect of your life or business.
They can keep you accountable.
They can keep you on track.
They can teach you things you didn’t know about yourself.
They can help you see things that you can’t.
They can teach you how to do it right the first time.
They can help you grow into the best version of you.
Finding a good mentor or coach is critical when you are looking to step into a new place of passion + power in your life.
When looking for someone to coach or mentor with, consider these things:
- What are your needs?
- What exactly do you want to accomplish with this coach?
- Be specific. The universe LOVES specifics. If you want specific back, be detailed and specific. If you want vague, be vague.
- Create an exact list of tangible things you desire-more clients, a certain amount of money per month, branding, SEO, website stuff, time management or to get another perspective on your life + your business.
- Create a list of intangible, spiritual or personal things you’d like to get out of a coaching or mentoring relationship-more confidence, greater connection to your truth, your purpose, healing old wounds and getting out of victim and/or excuse mode, more joy.
- Do you enjoy their vibe? Their energy? What they write about, blog about?
- If you are a “touchy feely “ person, try to go see them in person and see if it feels like there is an energetic match.
- Meditate about it.
- Ask God, or your higher power.
- Listen to your gut and/or intuition.
- Show me the money! Find out what it costs, what you are willing to spend, them multiply that times two. Seriously. Investing in myself was the best thing I have ever done . . . but gotta find the right coach/mentor first.
I saved the money one for last because it is the biggest trigger for most people.
Here is the deal. If you invest in your self—and not just $100 an hour—but invest to that point that it challenges you. It feels like a bit of a stretch.
It challenges you for a reason.
If you want to have a financial breakthroughs, then start by investing more than you normally would on yourself. It’s called a breakthrough because it is a change, a stretch, growth and a new way of thinking.
YOU WILL WORK HARDER AND YOU WILL GET SHIT DONE.
Or, as Tina Fey says . . .
I invested about six times what I felt comfortable with and I have the reaped the rewards time and time over. My ROI was worth it, and then some.
How would it feel to invest $5000 in your personal growth? $10,000? $100,000? What would you expect of yourself? How would you utilize that time? Would you skip assignments or be late to coaching calls?
When you really, truly, 110%, black and white, no holding back commit to yourself, your dreams, your truth and your inner fire—it will show up.
When you ask, and line up your energy, magic happens, doors open, opportunities abound.
There are ways to really get dialed in with manifesting like a ninja master that can speed up that process. I can help with that. I am a manifesting coach and a real life manifesting success story.
Enough about me.
You. Get a coach(that’s not an order even thought it sounds bossy). Invest in you. Live your dreams.
Be super happy. Choose you.
It’s like that.

Sometimes it’s just remembering the little things, in the moment, that can have the biggest impact on our lives.
One thing has been really helpful for me is to remember to keep it simple. One thing at a time. Choice by choice we can make little improvements in our lives and businesses until one day, we look up and we are light years from where we first started.
But you have to start. As the saying goes, Just Do It.
Things wont improve for you unless you make a conscious choice to do so. It doesn’t mean you have to tackle every single thing right now. We want to stay out of overwhelm and into joy and pleasure.
I’m talking about improving your life bit by bit by CHOOSING different thoughts or feelings in the moment.
Eventually, you will raise your energy + vibration by allowing more of the “good” in and not giving energy to the “bad.”
Practice this for a little while and see what happens for you.
I am hoping you too, will see that the better it gets, the better it gets.
Journaling has up-leveled my life. Taking the time to write—on paper, not computer—is therapeutic, relaxing and enlightening.
It’s one of the best forms of self-help. It can assist us in getting more laser focused with our health, prosperity, relationships and career.
The act of writing engages the left brain, while allowing the right brain to create, flow, and access intuition. In short, it allows a connection to and a deepening of our creative, intuitive selves.
And why does that matter?
Getting in tune with our intuition and strengthening that part of us, is one of the biggest keys to being dialed in with personal growth, self-help and manifesting.
It’s the bees knees. It’s a way to increase your mojo, your moxy and your ninja manifesting powers.
Or at least its a start to getting to know yourself a bit better. A change to reconnect with your dreams, desires and your most innermost truth.
If you choose it.
Benefits of journaling include: Stress reduction, clarity around our thoughts + feelings, increased problem solving skills, knowing yourself on a more intimate level, increase in your productivity due to clear intentions + goals, elevated sense of purpose and direction, and an improvement in relationships due to more clarity about self + desires.
Those are just a few. For me personally, journaling consistently has really gotten me in touch with being a ninja at manifesting. There is something magical that happens when you put it on paper.
Plus, it saves me loads of time because I no longer have to read every self-help book on the market and my therapist gets a break (haha)
So, choose to journal! Do this for you, be patient and watch the magic happen for you too. I know its a small, simple little thing, but those are generally the things that matter most.
If that doesn’t ring true for you, then just choose something that does. Your choices=your life. Choose wisely!
