Before you run screaming about the upcoming Mercury retrograde, listen to our take on what this period means. Hint, it's not a hall pass to say whatever you want and blame the planet. As Mercury slows down, it's an invitation for you to listen to your audience, fine-tune your marketing, and communicate with more authenticity and purpose.
Can you believe it is already NOVEMBER?!?! Even as I type this my jaw is on the floor! It feels like that last year has gone by in the blink of an eye! Couple that with Instagram reminding me that we are just 8 short weeks away front the end of another decade and it's hard not to pause for a moment of reflection.
10 years ago TODAY I was sitting in a factory in Wenzhou, China.
On paper, I was living my "dream life". I had always wanted to work in fashion, to build million-dollar accounts, and eventually run the business. I had crossed the first two things off my list and had a really solid 5-year plan to make the last one happen.
Yet my reality was far from the glamorous life I was expecting. I was traveling alone, sick with a cold, and basically working 24-hours a day. It was freezing cold, damp, and I spent the day with my head buried in swatch books or my...
One of the top things we hear from women is that they’re not quite ready to launch their business or program yet. Well, we want to let you in on the secret sauce to our success. It’s that even when we felt fear around putting our ideas out into the world, we did it anyway. See, fear is like a schoolyard bully, and when you listen to those fearful thoughts, you move further away from what your soul is guiding you to do. Listen to today’s episode for a few ways to spot fear and how to move past those feelings.
Our discussion today led us down the rabbit hole of worthiness. We often hear how women put off doing the things that would lead them closer to the success they want because they don’t feel worthy. Today, we encourage you to look at what’s behind your feeling of unworthiness and ask yourself if any of the sneaky, insidious stories from your past are causing you to spiral into shame of not living up to your potential. Uncovering and unpacking these stories can help you and your business thrive.
I recently read a quote that stopped me in my tracks. It said (and I wish I wrote down the source so I could properly quote them):
"Working for myself means I'm 100% in charge of my day... and how I waste it". #micdrop
It hit me to my core because it's true. Everyone knows that entrepreneurs are the only people who would rather work 60 hours for themselves in order to avoid working 40 hours for someone else.
As Luscious Hustlers, we are creative, multi-passionate, driven, and ambitious. We are the dreamers and the doers on a mission to change the world and make it a better place.
Why else would we be investing our time, money, and energy into building something that doesn't exist???
One of the perks of our job is that we have had the opportunity to connect with hundreds of incredible women and hear their stories. We have yet to meet or speak to a Luscious Hustler...

Today I want to let you in on a little secret and also give you a gift...
For as long as I can remember, whenever someone tells me that something I want to do is impossible there is a little voice inside my head that says (in a slightly know-it-all way):
"Actually, I can".
It doesn't matter how far out of reach something seems, if I really want to make it happen that voice is relentless.
"Actually, I can"
In many ways, even though I didn't consciously believe in affirmations, that simple statement has been a silent mantra that has provided powerful motivation. It has helped me navigate some of the most challenging moments on my entrepreneurial journey.... and today I want to pass it on to you.
Because... actually, you CAN.
YOU CAN have everything that you want and desire.

Today’s episode is all about timing. Or rather, it’s all about not waiting for the “right time” before you make your move to start or grow your business. When we began Luscious Hustle, we didn’t have a ton of money to invest. Instead, we had a total “beginner mind,” and it allowed us to take chances and bet on ourselves - which paid off!
After growing our business to 6 figures, we’re convinced that the perfect time does not exist. So, instead of missing opportunities while you wait for time to catch up, ask yourself, "what do I want and what am I prepared to do to get it?".
