With so much going on in the world, it’s important to be mindful of the thoughts and ideas that we allow to enter our subconscious mind. We are continuing to learn and practice the idea that “Thoughts-become-things.” As we continue to understand this concept, it is important that we practice the thoughts and beliefs that are going to bring more love, cooperation, confidence, authenticity, and trust and loyalty in our business and relationships.

With this in mind, I designed a printable poster for you to hang next to a mirror, on a wall, by your desk, or wherever you wish to place it. On this poster you will find 7 Powerful Beliefs that you can practice in you business and your life. The more you practice repeating an idea, the more you believe it.

How your beliefs may be affecting your bottom line

Life-Brand Management (1).pngWhen most people think of business, the first thing that comes to mind is hardly ever spirituality or religion. In fact, it’s typically money, money, and… money. In many instances people prefer to keep the two worlds separate, unless of course it’s part of the business plan. But believe it or not, business and one’s psychology and spiritual beliefs go hand in hand.

What you believe governs how you manage your business.

I’ve been in a space a time or two as a young entrepreneur where some of my own limited beliefs kept me from achieving higher levels of success, and in some instances, kept me from taking action at all.

Whether it was thoughts of not having enough money to invest in resources, feelings of not knowing enough or being supported, or thinking that I didn’t deserve to charge more for my products or services.

I’ve crossed paths with all of these scenarios. But it wasn’t until I checked and altered my own belief system through much discipline and right action, that I was able to see things change in my business affairs, and ultimately, my life.

Business is a spiritual pursuit. Your business will not grow unless you grow as a person. If you want to lead others, you have to lead yourself first.

Consider this: When you invest in a belief system, faith, spiritual practice, etc…you are setting the tone for the messages, actions, relationships and quality of service that your business represents. Whether it’s your own company, or you work as an employee for someone else, you bring yourself to every situation. In every interaction, your attitudes and beliefs could mean the difference between being very profitable or having a failing business.

The key is to be mindful of self-sabotaging behavior, which is the result of negative or wrong thinking. With a shift in focus towards actions guided by thoughts of abundance, resourcefulness, maintaining good relationships, a belief in one’s own power, strength and capabilities, success is  inevitable.

Your business will grow so long as you are willing to.

That’s where Life-Brand Management is here to help. Starting this November, I will be taking on small businesses owners, entrepreneurs, and other creatives to offer one-on-one coaching sessions that will help transform roadblocks into pathways to success.

Top 3 tips for staying motivated when you just don’t feel like it

Struggle breeds creativity. Resourcefulness is its result. (3).png

How often is it that you find yourself with a heap of things to do, yet you can’t seem to make yourself get around to doing them? Well if you’re anything like me, the answer is probably more often than you are proud to admit. But if we’re being honest about things, this is an issue that most people have dealt with at some point in their lives. And it’s one that I have come to learn a few quick fixes that get me back in shape. And I’m pretty sure they can work for you too!

So, what keeps you from getting things done?

Before we get into the solution, let’s talk about the root cause of having a lack of motivation. It all boils down to one word. Fear. Grrrrrrrr!

Fear is the ugly creature that creeps into every storyline to steal your joy, peace, and sometimes even rob you of the life that you were destined to lead. Read more about how crippling fear can be here.

Think of it in terms of cause and effect. Better yet, think of what happens when you catch a cold. What are the symptoms of a cold? Runny nose, cough, tearing eyes, so on and so forth. The symptoms are what let you know that you are not at 100% with your health. They are only the indicator of something else. In this case, the virus that causes your body to go out of whack.

The same goes for fear. Fear is like the virus that leads you to do all kinds of things that you wouldn’t normally do. Hence the reason why for centuries, humanity has been asked the question:

What would you do if you weren’t afraid? – Unknown

Well this is the exact question you must ask when you find yourself putting off the very tasks that would only benefit you to complete.

Here’s my top 3 go-to tips for cutting the BS and getting it done!

Yes, I call fear a bunch of B.S.! Why? Well because fear is usually just a reaction that you have to the negative thoughts that you hold in your mind about certain subjects. It’s telling yourself over and over again that you are not good enough, that you can’t possibly get that thing done, that it would take way too much energy to do, that you will fail, or even somehow be destroyed by the process.

But when it comes to getting the things done that will help improve the quality of your life, such as getting that job, improving your finances, starting that dream business, etc… Putting it off will only keep your goodness from you longer. So here are the 3 things I’ve learned to do to get past this roadblock.

  1. Get clear about your fear: What scares you most about getting this task completed? Honestly, laziness is also a fear of being overworked. Rejection is never fun, and that could be another reason why you haven’t tackled your priorities. Whatever it is, know it and own it. You can’t fix what you don’t acknowledge.
  2. Ask yourself, ” What would it cost me if I don’t do it?”: Here is where we get real with ourselves about our current circumstances. If you are not where you want to be, then the only way to change that is to do something about it. You need to be clear about what your inaction could mean for your life. And the more severe the consequence, or the more you feel that some part of your life will suffer longer, the more of a priority it needs to be.
  3. Change your self-talk: 99% of all doubt comes from our own thoughts. The other 1 % comes from the rest of the world. So take some time to sift through your own thoughts and see how you may actually be acting as your own worst enemy. It always helps to feed your mind messages that are more likely to inspire you to take action. This includes reading books, or blogs like this😉. Once you get your mind right about the subject, then you will be willing to do whatever is in your power to make something happen.

Hope this helps! As usual, the best conversations take place in the comments. If you have a comment or question, I’d love to hear from you!

Love,

11 Self-Help Books That Completely Changed My Life

Ways toincorporatepurple hues inyour wedding.png

Along my journey, I’ve had the privilege of coming across some pretty amazing literature. Some of these books have helped me accomplish many goals, including spiritual, emotional, financial, and relationship goals. Here, I share with you 11 of my favorite books that have had the greatest impact on my growth in many of the areas mentioned. In fact, I credit these books with having changed my life for the better. And I hope that you’ll explore them for yourself.

1. The Secret: I actually saw the documentary that the book was based on when I was a freshman in college. And I must have shared it with every single person I cared about. Sure, it’s been criticized for being a simplified approach to a more complex life principle. However, simplicity was the key for me to first: understand The Law of Attraction, second: recognized that I had practiced it unknowingly throughout my life, and third: to instantly put it to work, but this time with clearer intentions. I must say that because of its simple approach, I found it easier to focus on my goals and have them manifest one by one. From getting into my dream school, to getting jobs, and even getting the exact same car that I’d once glued a picture of on my very first vision board less than 1 year later. When I recognized how powerful my thoughts really are, it set me on a journey to exploring more about where some of my negative thought patterns come from, especially if they kept me from having the life that I always dreamed of.

2. You Can Heal Your Life: Another book that I’ve bought several copies of for friends and family in both print and audio versions.This book introduced me to the concept of having self-compassion (not sure if that’s a word) and empathy. It basically picks up where The Secret leaves off since it offers solutions for improving the quality of one’s thoughts, especially as it pertains to self-image. After all, we teach others how to treat us by how we treat ourselves. We also attract people and things into our lives based on what we think we deserve. Paying attention to self-talk is the best way to assess what you really feel about yourself. It also helps in getting to the root cause of those negative thoughts and forgiving yourself and others so that you can truly heal your life. This book offers positive affirmations for reprogramming a negative mindset and touches on metaphysics and the effects your thoughts can have on your body’s health. Two words: Great stuff!

3. Think & Grow Rich: The title of the book is self-explanatory. But I will admit that brother Napoleon Hill had me second guessing everything I thought I knew about education and the role that it would play in my life. In fact, I wanted to drop out of school before I could even finish the book, but Sallie Mae already had my name on a few documents so I had to finish. This book is an earlier version of The Secret and You Can Heal Your Life, but it offers more strategies with a business approach. Most entrepreneurs tend to appreciate a book like this. In fact, many well-known businessmen have credited this book with being the reason why they became so successful. It’s definitely left a permanent impression on me.

4. Getting To I Do: This book isn’t quite what its title suggests, but it does offer up some tips for both men and women to incorporate into their single, dating, and married lives. It is a MUST READ for those who feel a bit insecure in how to date or interact with the opposite sex (including with parents, friends, etc.) in a way that is healthy and beneficial for both people. I  would say that it is heavy in psychology based principles of how men and women (masculine and feminine regardless of physical sex) interact with one another, and how we could interact with much more harmony if we understood our own individual nature. Based on this book alone, I have a completely different outlook on relationships and interacting with the opposite sex. In fact, I plan to do some relationship videos laced with some of the principles I’ve learned from this book to help others put things in perspective. And yes, all of my close girlfriends were gifted or recommended a copy of this book. It’s a GAME CHANGER!

5. The Alchemist: The dreamer and believer in me absolutely loves this book! It’s a novel about a shepherd boy who goes on a journey to discovering his “personal legend,” which is the equivalent of his life’s purpose. It’s laced with jewels of timeless wisdom on just about every page. And it will definitely have you inspired to take of advantage of your time on Earth and pursue your hearts desires while you have the chance to. It’s one of those books that you feel the need to read every few years just to see how much progress you’ve made towards what you say you hope to accomplish in life. Let’s just say it keeps me on my toes and gets me right back on track when life’s circumstances can be distracting.

6. A Return To Love: This book is nothing short of miraculous. When you read it, you can feel love pouring all over you in the form of understanding, forgiveness, compassion, empathy, and just pure love. Marianne Williamson offers insight into life-lessons she’s learned based off A Course In Miracles, which is a Universal approach to Christian based principles. After reading this book, I felt so connected to everyone on the deepest levels of understanding. Not so much on the shallow tip, but you walk away with the understanding that we are more alike beneath the surface than we are different.

7. A Course In Miracles: As mentioned above, this is literally a life course. It’s like a companion to the Bible or whatever sacred book your faith is based on. Its pretty dense, but I promise everytime I read a page or practice a lesson, I become more open to life and I feel more grounded and loved than ever before. Let’s just say you’ll have to see for yourself.

8. The Four Agreements: Talk about getting to the root of almost all of the problems we face as human beings. This books offers four foundational principles that we should strive to live by, not for religion’s sake, but for our own sanity. Based on ancient Toltec wisdom, it touches on limiting beliefs and how we can just about rid ourselves of unnecessary suffering and lead our lives with more love, abundance, and happiness.

9. Blink: This book touches on the power of intuition, or thinking without thinking. Everyday we make decisions, and some are made instinctively, while others are made after thorough investigation. Many times, the best choices are made with little to no explanation, all because something within allows us to make snap judgements that need no justification. Love it!

10. Science Of Mind: I’m currently reading this one and it’s like another companion to whatever your faith is already. It’s metaphysics at its finest and it really focuses on developing discipline to creating a more harmonious world through our individual thoughts. Its philosophy is based on Christian teachings, but it also draws from virtually every spiritual faith as it teaches readers to guide our thoughts intentionally towards a life of health, wealth, success, love, harmony, and peace. Another feel good read every time you pick it up. It’s enlightening and refreshing, and it gives you a sense of peace and personal power.

11. Enchanted Love: The Mystical Power of Intimate Relationships: Marianne Williamson did it again with this one! For me, this one is so necessary for this generation as we have drifted further away from intimacy in our interactions with those in our lives. It’s a collection of personal essays, prayers, and self-reflection of interactions within relationships. It will have you open to acceptance and being accepted, forgiveness, love, intimacy, and attracting the right mate from the right space. It is ever enchanted and another must read.

There’s many more that I’d love to share with you. There’s also so many that I have yet to read. I want to know what books changed the game for you. Please leave a comment if you’ve read any of these books, and share some of your favorite reads below.

Why Hard Times Can Make You Better


No one likes to struggle, but perhaps it’s not the worst thing ever when you look at how it can change you for the better. Not only can struggle  build character and help you develop certain survival skills (which can often translate into multiple areas of your life), but it allows you to become an expert on overcoming difficulties, particularly those circumstances that you’ve dealt with personally. Everyone loves a good underdog story of how one can take a bad scenario and turn it around and declare victory in the end. I’ve come to know that when we share our stories of overcoming obstacles, it inspires others and gives them peace in knowing that they are not alone.

Have you recently overcome something or are you currently going through a difficult situation? If so, what self discoveries have you come across? In what ways are you stronger, better, more equipped to handle things in the future? I want to know. Drop me a line in the comment section. You never know who you could inspire.

Love and Light,
