After the She Can Brand Conference in July, I took a step back and internally reflected on what I wanted to build.
More importantly, who I want to build with and for.
My client and friend Deby Marchetti approached me to help her execute on an event, I leaned in and truly listened to her heart as she shared her approach.
At the end of her ask, I accepted the offer. Her long-term goals and clients being served through this endeavor, were the exact people I wanted to be helping too.
We then approached Chris Ward to ask for his help with our speakers, he asked us the same question.
He wondered, who is this helping? What purpose does this serve?
I immediately realized that I was in the right place at the right time. I want to be around those who aren't focused on numbers, but focused on helping, giving, and then receiving.
The Red Talk will take place in Morristown, NJ this Thursday, 12/16, I am so excited to see some of you there.

Whether you know it or not, your team is out there. The only question is, are they aware of you?
Do they know that you want to work with them, are you open about the future growth of your business?
If there is one tip I have for you today - start networking with that next level team NOW.
Here's some ways you can get to know your beginner team:
1. Write their names, write their roles, and be clear on what role they will have.
2. Contact them, let them know your intentions, give them your goal deadline, and keep in touch.
3. Keep in touch... invite them to events... build a relationship!!
Alright, now GO!
They help themselves.
So maybe you're the type of person who LOVES to give. Do you see me standing here with my hand raised high??? Me TOO!
Through the journey of building my business, I realized I could build a business where that IS possible. It was a limiting belief that I had thinking if I helped everyone I would go BROKE.
Here is what I needed to remember, if "everyone" is actually an ideal client, if the group and following I foster are those who genuinely need my help and knowledge and expertise, it will always help me.
Maybe I won't see the impact I am making in just one class, or in just one workshop, but over the months, years, and decades of sharing my genius, it will always help me too. It will push me forward to achieving my dreams as well. WE both help each other.
There was once a day where I kept all my genius and passions locked inside me.
Deep down in a box labeled "only if"... meaning... only open this IF you are ready.
The joke was on me, I was always ready.... as we approach the last stretch of 2021 I am so excited to show you all thing projects I have been working on.
I opened the box, I unlocked my potential and released my genius, and there is NO stopping me now.
Go do something that scares you in a good way today, something you've been holding back on.
Your COO, Gabby
On this beautiful Monday morning before this first quarter ends I want us all to take a second and reflect.
You are a beautiful being who is making an impact on this world, whether you see it or not.
I am not sure which season of your business you are in, regardless of how long you've been in business we all experience a phase in which we feel the business isn't what it truly should be.
At times, these feelings can cause an entrepreneur to quit cold turkey.
Packing away their business for months or even years at a time.
That is simply a part of your entrepreneurial journey, but it is not a dead end.
Now that I have the experience I do, I am here to tell you there is no magic potion to making those feelings go away.
Whenever those feelings overcome me, I promise myself to be like water.
To go with the waves and see which shells and fish they throw onto the shore, learn and heal and then go back out with the tide. Entrepreneurship is a journey to self love and extreme self growth in case you haven't figured it out yet. (The growing pains can be real sometimes!!!)
One tip I can give you, is that having a solid business foundation as well as a mentor/coach on your side can help you work through these emotions and events tremendously.
I often see people investing in courses and classes that may not have the desired outcome that is being sold because the purchasers has no real business foundation.
Think who, what, where, why. Those basic business questions not being answered need to be the first course taken!! What is your mission babe? Who are you meant to serve?
Just like when you build a house, build your foundation first.
o not get engulfed by sales. Avoid obsessing over Instagram likes and follows.
Build. Your. House. Not the garage. Not the landscaping.
Building a business foundation isn't pretty, but it is absolutely necessary.
To all my biz owners:
If this quarter brought you reflection into your business, I honor your growth.
If this quarter caused you to press pause on your business, I honor your journey.
If this quarter was your best yet, I honor the discipline you put in behind the scenes.
If this quarter wasn't what you wanted it to be, on Thursday we receive the gift of a brand spanking new quarter.
Promising to usher in growth and abundance, new connections, new highs and new lows.
NONE OF THIS MAKES YOU A FAILURE. You are a growing business.
Now go out and seize the day!!!
