It's been a long time, I shouldn't have left you with out a dope beat to step to. Okay, that's my way of saying I am sorry I fell off the blog planet and into some dark hole. Since the last time I posted a bunch of things happened and I am hoping that the order is correct here. I got hitched, I became a dog mom and I am a full time boss babe now. My business has grown in ways I couldn't even dream of. We went from creating retail spaces in studios to pop-ups to our VERY OWN STORE FRONT! OMG, OMG. It has truly been a dream come true. Not only do we sell the flyest fit-fashion in all of San Francisco (true story) but we have cultivated a bad ass community. I live for our customers. They are smart, savvy and stylish women who celebrate life and encourage our success every single day. I have two very strong feelings from all of this: gratitude and exhaustion. HA.
No one tells you how NOT cute you look while running your own business because the weight of the world is on your shoulders and not in a "look how much I can lift and squat now" kind of weight. More of like I could be totally crushed right now kind of weight instead. All joking aside, it has been equally the hardest and most rewarding job I have ever had. I 1000% love it. And that is why I am sorry but not sorry I have been MIA. I have been creating the ultimate experience for me and other bad ass women who like to look fine while they break a sweat at the gym and in life.
I am however; trying something new...putting myself first. Last week it was chaos, someone couldn't go in to the shop and I had to go in unexpectedly. I was going to cancel my training session and instead, I closed the store, got my butt kicked and went back to the store emotionally, mentally and physically stronger. Was that the best decision for the business? I'm not quite sure but the truth is, it was the very best decision for me. I ended up having a great day engaging with some of my favorite people. When you run your own business, home, etc. it is easy to become last on the list. I have decided I will now be first so I can give to others. That whole saying about if you don't give to you, you can't give to others is not a cliche, it is gospel my friends. Part of me giving to *me* is writing again. So if you missed my quirky and slightly sarcastic humor, consider it your lucky day.
