Thriving in the Virtual Setting
While many people are getting back to "normal" socially and travel wise and are beginning to venture into the office sometimes, most clients I know are still doing much of their work virtually. Hybrid seems to be the way most organizations are moving but that means that the virtual part of work is not going away. As a result we still need to be adept at running virtual meetings effectively as well as managing the chaos that comes with working from home with others there as well.
Check out my two classes on Skillshare that will provide you some insights on how to manage these two scenarios:

Joy in the everyday
As I have learned to become safe in my own skin, elevate the authentic version of me, as well as open up to the real joys of life - love, care, empathy, cherishing the little moments - I am finding that I am much happier and more dedicated to the things that are important to me. I used to spend time on things that didn't matter, that weren't aligned to my purpose, that elevated togetherness but with those whose presence did not uplift me but drained me.
Now as a result of my family life needing time and dedication I am much less pulled towards opportunities, challenges, and even time spent with others which doesn't uplift and/or inspire me and my daughter to be more and more fulfilled and aligned to who we truly are.
All of the world now feels more genuine, more loving, as well as a lot more open to me receiving and allowing more of the universe's gifts. The universe is always wanting us to pursue our highest potential but I was not always ready to do that based upon my own insecurities. But as I have grown in the last year I have seen just how important time together with positive people are, just how good love feels, and just how regular it is to feel loved and cared for back.
Now that I have incorporated so many of those things into my life I have been able to relax work wise, trust that the right opportunities are not just coming there, but am beginning to say no to those which are no longer aligned to me growing naturally and with the family I need/want to be around moving forward. It feels good to now say no and no longer hold back my true voice, deepest dreams, and now my love, care, and empathy towards others as well.
What do you need to start saying no to in your life or business to make room for the upleveling things?
