Hey lovelies? Missed me around the blog world? I’m sure you’re wondering where the hell I’ve been since the start of the new year, blogging has taken such a back seat lately to so many new projects and changes I have coming down the pipeline. Ahhh yes by new changes I really should say big-new-awesome-changes, like a lot and over the next couple of months I’m trying not to shake too hard in my boots.  Last year I talked a lot about my business journey and how I’ve had to embrace the things that scare me the most in my business, I went back and read this post out loud and it nearly brought me to tears, it was exactly what I needed to hear today. From time to time I get emails asking how I figured this whole business thing out. I feel like I need to let the cat out of the bag lovelies, I don’t have it all figured out. Sometimes I wake up and I get so scared that I don’t have it all figured out…that’s a special day I like to call Wednesday haha. I have to remind myself that it’s more about the journey than the destination, succeed or fail I’m giving it my all. When my business turned one I asked all of my friends to write me a little note giving me advice on how to be successful in the future, I didn’t read them all, I saved a few for days that I really needed them. A week or so ago I needed some kick in the pants advice, do you know what it said? “Look back Phebe”. Yup that’s all, but I know this friend and I know exactly what she was telling me. I wish that everyday was an absolutely amazing day but that’s just not life and that’s just not how it is in business. So on those days I stop and I look back and I remember where MME started and where we are now. I am growing this company bit by bit and if it weren’t for those occasional messy days I wouldn’t have the faith and the courage to keep calm and carry on.
