To all those who are giving their time, money, energy or performing random acts of love &a kindness (or all of the above) this holiday season THANK YOU - especially if you're performing good deeds from the heart & not simply for acknowledgement or "likes." I've always believed the most selfless acts are done in silence. That said, Im probably contradicting myself but I have to say I'm so proud of my sis Lauren. There are still so many people in need from Harvey's devastation & I don't know many who will put their lives on hold to gut out and help rebuild mold/vermin infested houses. Ky definitely has a humble, beautiful, selfless GodMom. Even if she does complain that Google lied to her about Texas weather. Who would have thought? ❤ (😂 #Swipeleft) #BeHumble#BFF#DoGooder#Throwback
“There’s the truth about what you do and your level of expertise and then there’s also how you’re able to communicate what you do to other people. In the end it always comes down to your ability to communicate your product, your ideas and you vision for the future and to get someone to buy into that with either their time or their money.”
“It’s your tonality and your body language which allows you to be established as someone worth listening to. Certain tones are pleasing to the ear and imply certainty about what you’re saying.”
"The thing with great sales people, top level entrepreneurs and business people is that they’re experts in asking questions and based on that they know how to offer a solution. What do they value? What are their beliefs about buying and making decisions? What’s causing them the most discomfort right now?”
"At a certain point one of the questions I always ask is ‘What is your greatest headache right now?” I wouldn’t ask it first but as I get into deeper and tighter rapport it opens me up to ask those more invasive, troubling questions and if they already sense I’m an expert and a figure of authority they’ll reveal their pain to you.”
“There are certain elements of influence that you have to line up before someone says yes. At the highest level, sales is the transference of emotion. And the primary emotion you’re transferring is certainty. .

Truth Boom 👊🏼 Sometimes you are going to have days or nights that are really fricken hard, because something can happen which kicks you square in the gut. In that moment of sadness when tears are streaming down your face you have absolutely no concept of sunshine, lollie pops and rainbows. But let me reassure you... It’s ok not to be ok all of the time.
Right now in my life I honestly feel so grateful and happy that a few awesome doors were opened for me this year. 2018 is going to be epic and I haven’t felt that for awhile. Last night I had a thought... my Dad will miss this new part of my life, and it knocked the wind out of me. For those who don’t know, I lost my father a year and a half ago. I always visited him at Christmas and looked forward to one of his amazing hugs where he would say “how’s my favourite girl?” ... I would give anything to hear his voice again, and for him to see me charging forward with passion and happiness.
I’m not writing this for everyone to feel sorry for me or to get pity. I’m writing this to be raw and real with you. Life is full of many ups and downs. I want to share my story to give others hope. If you are going through hard times or memories that a difficult... you are not alone and you don’t have to go through those moments alone. This time of year is filled with many mixed emotions. There will be really good, amazing days where you are jumping for joy. Then something may happen and for a moment in time you will crash, and that is perfectly ok. Please know it’s just a bad moment in time, not a bad life. Time will tick over and the sun will rise again. Feel everything you need to feel, do what you need to do to self care, then keep going.
Reach out to talk to family, friends or even a professional. I’m a #1 advocate for mental health and seeking the help you need.
So be kind to everyone you meet, for you do not know they journey they are walking. But most of all, be kind to yourself 🙌🏼💛

🌟 New blog post alert🌟 🌟 How to Ask for What You Need
This is a funny analogy but I love dogs and so do most other people reading this I assume so I think this will resonate: when @readyforemmathing, my dog, is doing something that she’s not supposed to be doing, I tell her that she can’t do that but she can do this instead. For instance, “Emma! No digging on the carpet in the office! Bring me your toy and I’ll throw it!” Sometimes it’s, “Emma! Stop rolling in that awful smelling awfulness and lets go running over here instead!” But if I ever came at her with, “Emma! Stop eating that burrito that you just found on the sidewalk and just stand next to it but don’t eat it just because I said don’t eat it.” She would also ignore the shit out of me and throw me a surprise birthday party and not completely understand why I didn’t love that because she loves day-old burritos. Following? - @moore_kate regarding her recent birthday success. If you still not totally clear, I’d read the whole blog post 😉 Link in bio.

It's THAT time of year. Dear clients, please remember that our bodies are our product. If we are running slightly behind *Please Be Patient* A good barber is a busy barber. If you don't want to wait for a great haircut, there is probably a crappy one out there waiting for you. #barber#barberlove#barberlife#barbershop#yxe#xmas#busy#bekind
Raise your hand if you are ready for Christmas! I'm not- ha! Every year I say I'm going to be ready on the first of December and every year I'm not 😂 I shared some fun free printable tags on our blog (link in profile) to help you with your Christmas prep. Swipe right to see some of my gifts wrapped- I have used brown paper for the last several years, and I have recycled the red and gold ribbon for just as many. I try and simplify as much as I can, and I'm looking to simplify even more. How do you do Christmas? We have done the 4 gifts (want, need, wear, read) and I'm looking to change things up. How do you give gifts to your kids to make things more meaningful and focus on Christ? #seethehappy
💞🌛 Can we dream a better life into reality? 🌛💞
Last night I had a dream that I lived in Marrakech and was writing my first self help book. It was one of those dreams where nothing much happens but the whole thing feels so vivid and clear, you are convinced its real. When I awoke, I felt a mix of emotions: the feeling of loss realising it was all a dream, and a strong sense of purpose.
Jamie and I spent an hour yesterday talking about the kind of life we didn't want to be tied to. I feel my subconcious must have had a field day creating my ultimate dream life because I have never woken up with such a sense of purpose as I did this morning.
So i guess the question then becomes: how do i get to Marrakech? What changes do I need to make in my life starting now to walk through these streets and write that book? Have you ever woken up from a dream that steered you into your dream life and how did you make it more than just a dream?
