Shewww it has been such an emotional day for me. My oldest started college and my youngest started something new - online school. I started this morning with coffee and prayer. And if I'm being honest, tears just flowed and flowed. Maybe it's because I didn't get a lot of sleep last night, I crawled into bed at 1:13 AM. But, something's a-brewin' in this little office of mine. I truly believe God is about to do big things in my life and in yours. Y'all, for me, it's scary, but oh so exciting.
You have been on my mind so much lately, and I have been praying for you this week. I want you to know that I see you. I see you struggling to do “all the things”. As a wife, mom, business owner, friend, homemaker, Christian (and the list goes on), I know there's 110 hats you have to wear. Then, every time you turn around someone’s telling you that you must declutter and simplify your life. While that sounds wonderful and I could probably stand to lose a few old t-shirts and tupperware lids, exactly what is it that they want you to simplify? Which hat are you supposed to toss? Well, you sure can't toss feeding your family. You might can skip a load of laundry today, but it's just going to pile up tomorrow. Hiring someone to answer all of the emails in your business isn’t a bad idea but if you can’t afford it at the moment you’re going to have to do it. Cutting any of those things is not an option. So, guess what? We're back to square one, and the question remains. How the heck do I get it all done? This is what I've been praying about for myself and for you.
About a month ago, I set a goal to once and for all be consistent in my social media, and I was going to start with Facebook. Twenty five days later, I am proud to say I've done it, but there's one reason, and one reason only, accountability. It made me start thinking about when I was in the best shape of my life, which wasn't too many years ago. Guess what? Want to know the reason? Same thing, accountability. If there was ever a time in my life that I was consistent and/or effective accountability was involved. This was such a light bulb moment. How can we do all the things, all the things that we're supposed to do on a daily, weekly basis? Easy, accountability.
This lead me to what I pray will be an answered prayer and a solution for us all.......V.A.M.P., Virtual Accountability and Management Program. The definition of revamp is to give new and improved structure, form, and appearance. And that's exactly what we’re striving for. Right? We want to be new and improved women. We want to be healthier, better moms, better wives, successful business gals…….”all the things”. We want to have that structure in our daily routine. I know I so desire to be effective in every single one of these areas. In order to be effective, I MUST be consistent. Working out once a month is not going to get me to my ideal weight nor will responding to emails once a month make me really popular with my clients. Consistency is KEY! And, I strongly believe the only way for me to be consistent is with accountability.
Of course, as usual, I have a million ideas, but I told myself I wasn't going to wait until it was all perfect. So, so, so many times I get caught up in making sure the branding colors are just right, the font is perfect, the graphics are on point, everything is lined up, and I have everything figured out. I far too often do this with new ideas in business, but not this time. I wasn't going to put off letting you in on what God is doing. I can't wait to tell you more.
Would it be totally cheesy, if I did an "altar call" - lol?! If this resonated with you in any way and sounds like something you'd want to be a part of, will you "raise your hand" by signing up below? I'm praying for direction and clarity on how we can partner together and rock this!
