Here’s one thought you need to have, that will honestly make you thousands of dollars as a coach - and in any industry:
“Nobody can do it like me.”
And the reason why you may not be making thousands of dollars is because you don’t believe this thought. Believing that nobody can do it like you would mean that you’d have to hold what you know in high regard. To believe that you’re an expert, and worthy of being respected and recognized as one.
Here’s the easiest way you can begin to bridge the gap between not thinking this and believing with your whole heart - there is truly nobody in this world with your energetic blueprint.
With your fingerprint, even. You have your own sacred, unique identity in this world. Nobody else has had the exact same experiences, plus your education, plus your history, plus your...

What has come to mind for me is how much we hear how you have to step outside of your comfort zone. How much we hear that nothing good ever happens inside your comfort zone, and you need to step out of it. It's going to feel uncomfortable.
But then when it actually happens, we want to freak out and make it mean something. We want to go down the rabbit hole. We want to make it mean that because I'm uncomfortable before doing a coaching call, that I'm not good enough and that I'm not supposed to be coaching and that this person hates me and that I'm never going to be able to get another client again.
That is just one example of something that could happen when we make our uncomfortable feelings mean something about ourselves. As an online entrepreneur, there is always going to be a level of discomfort for you. You are not pushing the envelope if you feel...

We live in a world of the “just fucking do it” and the “you get what you work for” mentality. Discipline was seen as authoritative, that there was a “right” or “wrong” way to be.
You were taught that in order to get the results you wanted, you had to do things you didn’t want to do, but that you were “supposed” to do.
Does the phrase, “You can’t just do anything you want” ring a bell?
This particular story was one that I had to rewrite for myself.
The story that told me I couldn’t have fun and make money. That it had to be hard. That resting in bed all weekend was bad. That I had to be working on my business 8 hours a day to be successful. That swearing on the internet would make people not like me. That it was rude to talk about how much money I’ve made.
It all stemmed from punishing myself and making myself feel bad for being the...
The reason why it takes time to get to your next level is NOT because “it just takes time”.

You see your success as a flight of stairs that you’re climbing - it all feels very restricted, rigid, and linear.
But it doesn’t have to be this hard. It doesn’t have to take such a long time.
Every time you uncover another layer of why you feel unworthy, you remove a heavy brick from the wall of your unworthiness. You acknowledge that part of you, validate that part of you, and release - and you give yourself permission to level up.

Hey MTV , welcome to my crib (𝘈𝘒𝘈 this blog), where we talk a lot about symptoms of experiencing imposter syndrome….
But on this fine Friday, I wanted to shed light on the good shit that you may be experiencing because you’re doing the werk so, here are 4 ways that you’re overcoming imposter syndrome:
Someone says "no" to your offer and it doesn't ruin your day.
Sometimes, a no means not right now or not this offer. Also, just because an offer isn’t right for one person, doesn’t mean it’s not perfect for another. You are someone’s sparkly unicorn.
You don't feel the need to over-prepare for guest speaking gigs or coaching calls.
Of course, if you do better with notes, that’s totally okay - but you know your shit, and people usually want to hear what YOU think about your shit - so own that shit
You easily detach from your client's actions, because you know you're doing your best to help them and they have to do the work, too.
I was thinking about energy and how important it is for us to be energetic and feel good because it helps us maintain our businesses, helps us move forward and helps us with our motivation when it comes to our business.
The main reason I created the Energy Management Bundle is because I found that as I started working with more and more one-on-one clients...I was on calls so much and those were really draining me.
I was really taking on the energy of other people and I didn't know a ton about energy management or protecting and preserving my energy when I first started out.
Then when I started to go on more of a spiritual journey, I started realizing,
"Oh, there's things that you can do to maintain and preserve your energy."
And that's where The Perfect Launch Vault came from.
Then the Energy Management Bundle was born because I was working with so many clients and I was realizing how drained I was and how that was affecting my emotional energy. Because the thing is, when you're...
If you would have asked me a year ago to crack open a notebook and start writing, I’d tell you that my hand gets sore after two minutes and that my writing is so bad, I can’t even read it sometimes (I did not get the girly writing gene). Journaling was something I did as a kid, and I distinctly remember keeping one on the first computer I ever had – I would talk about my day at school and how I was feeling, and at the end I would put an emotion as to how I feel that day was overall. Snaps for school-aged Jillian.
But as I became older and the digital age became more and more prominent, I wrote down my feelings less and less. We became consumed with things like social media, television, and other distractions that kept us occupied. This meant less time to think and ponder our thoughts. When I became a coach, I would see so many of my mentors in the entrepreneurial community talk about how beneficial journaling was; but still, I never jumped on the bandwagon.
