If you want to grow fast, constantly stretch yourself, take leap after leap after leap? Go fast.

If you want to grow slowly, steadily, without much stretching or leaping? Go slow.

If you like to structure and plan and set goals and targets? Go structure and plan and set goals and targets.

If you like to move along with your flow, without much structure or planning or appointments or scheduling? Go with your flow and forget about the rest.


Whatever YOU want: do that.

Don’t get distracted by what others do or don’t do.

Don’t strive for things other people say ‘should’ matter to you, but you actually don’t give a fuck about.

(Not interested in making 6 or 7 figures within a year or at all? That’s cool.

Not interested in serving thousands of clients with your programs? That’s cool.

Not interested in leaving a legacy? That’s cool.

Not interested in getting ‘famous’ in your field? That’s cool.

YOU decide, babe.)


Don’t do ANYTHING that doesn’t feel 100% right for you, regardless of what ANYONE tells you to do or how it’s ‘supposed’ to be done.

Just because something works for 6 billion others, STILL doesn’t mean it will work for you, too!

Trust yourself.

Turn inwards for your answers, not outwards. (At least, turn inwards BEFORE you start seeking answers outside of you.)

Trust your own intuition above anyone else’s advice.

Don’t let anyone dictate what you should or shouldn’t do.


It’s ALL up to YOU, baby.


That’s the beauty of having your own business and living your own life.
