How to Overcome Today’s Pain to Grow Tomorrow’s Business (RECORDING inside)

Something that you might have been afraid of is something that I used to be afraid of as well…

This idea that losses, health challenges or setbacks or of any kind would not allow me to grow my business to where I truly wanted.

Have you ever felt that? Do you feel that way right now?

If you’re fearing that you just may never get there because of what has sidelined you or caused a detour of sorts, you’re not alone.

You and I have both gone through times that hurt…that have detoured us…that have paused plans or that, at the very least, made us FEEL like we HAD to detour or HAD to pause our plans.

You and I have both gone through times that hurt…that have detoured us…that have paused plans or that, at the very least, made us FEEL like we HAD to detour or HAD to pause our plans.

We may have even felt (or currently FEEL) like we’d surely never get back to doing our purpose work or living the dream.

But the truth is it’s all purpose work. Your pain — those trials and tribulations — just as my trials and tribulations have been purposeful.

They have led you on a path, to a career, to a soul mate, to our full-bodied yes OR more full-bodied no. In other words, it has all brought you right here and right now, to you reading this — to me doing this work and you doing yours.

Weeks back I talked about purposeful pain and it’s true…this is how I see today’s pain. It eventually helps us (if we genuinely desire it) to grow tomorrow’s business.

Want to grow tomorrow’s business?

If you have ever felt like today’s pain was not going to move you forward or allow you to grow tomorrow’s business, let me tell you my story, not necessarily by telling you about what happened (though if you’ve been reading my work/words the last few years you will already know) but by sharing with you how I got through and still get through today’s challenges with the least amount of suffering.

It’s what’s worked for me.

Between experiencing three years of debilitating arm injuries as I started to write the Walking Momtra book, then back-to-back grief journeys with my brother and mom’s tragic passings (or simply said, one longer grief journey), I can assure you that going down this path in exactly this way on a daily basis with the “little things” and even with the big emotions has supported living inside my purpose and dream…

Let’s take a walk while we chat, shall we?


The B-SIDE: You’ll love this…we had to end the recording where we did because though my dog Holland never barks when he’s near me, he started barking loudly when I was about to conclude and say my official goodbye…

Here’s to your inner strength and resolve, Creative Heroine, keep moving from problem to solution in hopes of expressing to the world who you really are.

Enjoy your business, enjoy your life!

p.s. I can tell you exactly where I was when a fellow entrepreneur friend said to me, “I feel like your business has actually grown since Dino passed away…is that true?” It shocked me as I hadn’t made much time to think about it through the journey. But she was right, it had. Through the work I had done on myself and what I had learned from wonderful teachers and healers, I had discovered something that moved me through the pain that really did work.

Diary #5, PLAY in Biz (Camping in Israel!)

My son, Nolan, ran up to hug me twice for planning this experience in Israel.

He loves being outdoors and doing so in such a new place, had him vibing high.

When we started to cook dinner, we went off to find him high on one of the mountains taking photos and building this rock sculpture. It reminded me of spending Summers in Kentucky where we’d run outside and catch fireflies for hours and hours with new friends.

For many of us, city living and technology has changed things a little bit, but the great news is that we still have nature and can grow our connection to her (especially when we take care of her)…

We can and our kids can also still experience (childlike) freedom by searching out things that get us ALL out of our head and into our bodies — into laughter…

And, of course, we ALL know that we will never lose our truth of being creative beings living our human art if we stay connected to experiences like travel, hiking, camping, running, splashing in water, writing, painting, tickling (and an all-around playfulness), generally exhibiting a unique presence with our kids and, therefore, with the essence of life itself.

In short, showing our kids how we, as adults, express all of the above in our everyday lives is one of the greatest forms of purpose and expression there is.

Today, I hug and thank you, NLM, for teaching me so much about the little girl I still have inside. She’s always so pleased to see you every morning. ;)

Whether you’re a parent or not, the idea here is play…play more in your life and infuse more of it into your business by allowing more of this part of your personality naturally come out (what would SHE do in her business or in her expression?), will always help you in making happiness your business and will also attract in more of your tribe because, well, light or lightness is magnetic.

You are magnetic — simply be you…

Enjoy your business, enjoy your life!

Diary #4, Tel Aviv (your financially successful business AND…)

After a good sleep on the flight from Rome, Dolmas while waiting in the long line for the car, my son laughing hysterically and tickling us over and over again because one word — overtired — and signing more papers to rent four wheels than we did to buy our first home, greetings from Tel Aviv!

I’ve been writing diary entries almost every day and have also been writing a piece around moving through trials (loss, new normals etc.), the opposite of what this trip has been, yet a testament to what life trials have shared with me from the time I was a young girl that have brought me to the wisdom and many glorious moments that I constantly find myself in life. This is what I wanted to share from my writing or entry today…

Life is good — my email signature — has huge meaning to me. It is far from a bubble gum or cotton candy “life is good”.

As I wrote this morning as I do most days, I realized that the place to begin — to begin **believing** that you will, in fact, move through whatever discomfort it is that you’re currently experiencing is with your thoughts…

What thoughts are you finding yourself more frequently swimming or marinating in (we ate at a great Israeli restaurant tonight — marinating is on the mind)?  :-)

Life will HAND you lemonade (you don’t even have to make it yourself) when, at every corner, you tell yourself that’s what you’re going to find.

That’s what you’re going to find!

The street may be long, but there is always a corner where someone will be selling a delicious lemonade that, in fact, just wait, they’ll end up giving to you for free. :)

Life is good…ridiculously magical.
Expect it.
And, life. It hears you. 

Start with thought. Specifically, the one below. You can move to calling it a mantra or an intention if that feels good to you, but it’s not necessary. A new thought is good enough, especially if you think it over and over again for a new experience, also over and over again (here she is):

“Joy is not lost and not lost on me. If there is one drop here, there or anywhere ~ and through anything ~ I will find it.

I will find it.”

THIS, Creative Heroine, is your brand of woman!

Sending love from this gorgeous and magical country!

Enjoy your business, enjoy your life.

Life is good,
