I am ridiculously hard on myself.
I can often find myself: Getting into my head about how something I’ve created could be different/better. Becoming irritated to myself for not starting on something ahead off time and waiting to the last minute. Telling myself that some innate quality within is wrong or harming me or will stop me from continuing to success and should be changed immediately.
And then I do this…
I bring myself back home.
And realize that my imperfectness was given to me perfectly. And that all my crazy Amanda Frances qualities have been (and will continue to be) leveraged for my success.
Let’s be real.
I’m the girl who:
– On any given day has NO idea where her keys, credit card, or purse are
– Does everything at the very last minute — from designing sales pages the night before a launch to packing for a trip an hour and a half before a flight.
– Literally left an iced latte in the backseat cup holder of her car that she forgot to drink for over two months (… until her sister came to visit and threw it out)
– Does not believe in waking up before ten am.
– Has not mastered the whole controlling the volume of her voice thing
– Makes a mess in a matter of seconds without having any idea how she made a mess.
– Is late to EVERY single thing ever. Like every single thing. Every day.
– Has fallen asleep with an open pen/food item in bed with her more times than can be counted.
– Designs every sales page the night before a new offer launches.
– Cries almost every day. Even if it’s just at a really moving commercial.
And I’ve created a multiple six figure business that I am obsessed with… that helps more people than I can count… on my computer with no formal business training.
Let’s tell the truth:
All the things that are “wrong” with you are more than likely the things that make you perfect for what you are here on earth to do.
The late, messy, disorganized, loud, intense, emotional, slightly lazy, absent minded hot mess that I am… allows me to be the passionate, innovative, creative, bold as fuck, figure-it-out, open-minded, way out-of-the-box, obsessed with my clients, in love with my work, work-smarter-not-harder, watch-me-do-it-my-way, make-it-happen-now hot mess that I need to be for this shit to work.
So listen to me: If you job or education feels like a slow painful death. If you are bored or purposeless… Life may be requiring you to make your own way.
You are perfect the way you are. Stop beating yourself up. Play to your strengths. Find a way to work your “weaknesses” into your advantages. Choose to see your “flaws” differently. You are fine. You are good enough. You are the ways you are ON PURPOSE. There is nothing wrong with you.
And, if you can’t get-it-together or don’t fit-in… then good. That means you were born to stand out and make a way for yourself. So, go do that.
I mean it.
So when I see entrepreneurs attempting to perfect ever inch of their product/offer/service instead of trusting in the beauty of what they have created and what they are here to give and just PUTTING IT OUT THERE….
Or when I notice that I am being hard on myself about something that I could have done differently/better… I have to hold up the BULLSHIT! card.
I am enough. And so are you.
It’s truly enough.
More passion. Less perfection.
More trusting. Less worry.
More fun with our work. Less anxiety.
More love for what we do. Less analyzing if it’s good enough.

PS: I’ve been working on chilling, relaxing, and having more fun with life.
If you have been following me on the facebooks (here) or on insta (here), you know that I have been hopping over to other states for wine nights with soul sisters and wearing flower crows in golden fields for photoshoots.
The entire point of creating your own business is to give yourself the power to design this life.
Here’s how I’ve designed mine:
I am a business coach for spiritual entrepreneurs.
I have three (ALMOST FOUR — stay tuned!) digital courses. I work with private clients to create their own coaching packages and online courses.
Once upon a time, I didn’t know how to earn, how to sell, or how to make money. To work through this I was led to change my money mentality.
Today, I believe deeply in the value of my work. I believe it is of high service for me to earn cash money. Because of this, my courses and coaching packages sell while I travel and I do my coaching sessions from anywhere in the world.
I love to help others do this too:
First things first: Change your money mindset. Shift your beliefs and know (once and for all) that you earning big is of the highest good for the world. Step into the abundance that is your birthright: Money Mentality Makeover
Start your own coaching business: Become a Money Making Life Coach.
