Creating a Tribe

  • Ask Anything

The older I get the more I learn about myself. I’ve learned that I need an equal dose of motivational encouragement AND reality to make my big dreams happen. I’ve also realized through the years that often times I don’t dream big enough. So how do you find the happy medium? Well I’m not sure.

They came to us about a year ago and told us their big ideas, and we started brainstorming and problem solving.

I’m not putting myself in the same category as Lara Casey…she’s amazing!! … But I do think that we’re similar in the way that our brains work thinking about ideas and business. There are always new ideas and the motivation to GET IT ALL DONE!! …. And yet there is also a struggle to choose life over work.

The End of the 1st KJ Consistency Course

  • And What to Expect Next!

True friends are friends that see potential in you and then take a risk to tell you what you should be doing. Tyler Herrinton… without REALLY even knowing me at the time… took that exact risk. Over two years ago Ty told me that I should be doing more with video and I knew it was true but the problem was, I didn’t have anyone who could DO the video work. Well, what a coincidence! Tyler was a videographer!!! He was 100% spot on with his opinion and we are beyond thankful for him.
