Maximize Your Time = Increase of Life!..
We all want more from our lives, and a simplified path to achieve it.
As a photographer in a right-brained industry, I discovered just how left-brain-analytical I was in comparison to my peers.
Though after several years as a retail manger/merchandiser, it was my right-brained, out-of-box thinking that led me to creative ways to thrive and achieve numbers against a history of low numbers, in "challenged" stores. (red ink)
In both careers, I was presented with a dichotomy. Retail was only meant as strategy to buy me camera gear and time to shoot. My strategy was simple:
Become a top performer, get promoted to a higher paying position with weekends off, ramp up a photo business along side my retail career - and then leap. And LEAP I did! I felt that I was both pushed by pain and pulled by a Vision. I was motivated!
To assure that I had a life (time to go shoot during this process), I had to find the fastest way to deliver quality. My solution - SYSTEMS! I became a methodical systems junkie, creating the most efficient way to do every mundane task of my tour, so that I could get on with my ideal life!
Little did I know that it would also teach me about "Golden Handcuffs". After 19 years in retail, I overcame my fear of no paychecks and leaped.
In photography, I discovered this to be a rare combination of mindsets. My left-brain disciplines, managed my right brain desires. This, as it turned out, allowed me more time to discover an even Higher Purpose by combining the lessons of both careers.
In addition to being paid to travel the globe creating images and chapter-worthy experiences, it aligned me with my path of personal growth. In retrospect, I believe there was no accident that the jobs I was shooting, were feeding me a wealth of information from personal development gurus like Dr. Wayne Dyer, Marianne Williamson, Dr. Michael Beckwith, Bob Proctor, Gay Hendricks, Barbara Marx Hubbard, James Redfield, Richard Bach, Jean Huston, Deepak Chopra and at the hub of it all, my friend Mary Morrissey.
This, not to name drop, but to say that I was being educated (camera over my eye) by some of the most highly educated leaders in personal development and life coaching. Living a better life by way of personal development was just the beginning.
It improved my life by way of relationships, parenting and self-care. It improved my work as a photographer, creative director, entrepreneur, marketing, managing and every other had I have worn in my work life.
Now I am honored to be sought for speaking engagements that have allowed me to share these insights, and help others to reveal their purpose, set up systems to work toward it, and support them along the way.
WHAT MORE DO YOU WANT FROM LIFE?..
That unfinished book, nagging tasks, horizontal filing system (a.k.a. piles), all while you've got an email in-box reaching six digits when you'd rather have a bank account doing just that?..
Time saving apps and organizational systems are presented with relative stories of how important they are to maximize your time. More time = MORE MONEY.
More money, (wisely circulated) equates to freedom, happiness, and being present to all that you crave in your own life.
Thank you for joining me on this journey. You're not alone, and I look forward to meeting you!
