For those of you who have been following me since I started out online in 2012, you know that I spent 8 years in the fitness industry getting up at ungodly hours to start my workday between 5:00 and 6:00 AM.
I HATED IT.
After we closed our gym in 2016, I vowed that only a plane would get me out of bed at 4:00 AM (and we’d better be heading somewhere good).
Well NOW, surprise, surprise… I’m waking up earlier and working more than ever before but I am energized as F*CK by all this intentional overtime that I’m putting in.
My creator entrepreneur archetype is on FIRE right now!
This sh*t is LIT!
I worked a lot of hours and burned out hard.
I lived the fitness hustle of working 6:00 AM-8:00 PM, split shifts, and struggling to pay bills.
I am working a lot doing what I love and building my dream business.
I am hustling with intention to accomplish something that builds my aligned empire.
I’m deliberately and pleasurably waking up at 5:30 AM on weekdays and 6:00 AM on weekends.
Here’s what my mornings look like now:
- Map out my day
- 30-60 minutes of uninterrupted, quiet, focused time to myself to either write content, work on something for my business, or read a book.
I used to preach that I wasn’t a morning person, but now I AM a morning person, as the CEO/Boss Lady in me shows her true colors.
The most successful leaders like Steve Harvey and Mel Robbins are always talking about how they wake up early.
They say they do one MAJOR thing for themselves or their business during that uninterrupted quiet time to help move the needle towards their goals.
They get ahead of the chaos of the day.
I finally GET IT!
