Whether you’re the SheEO of your home, a mompreneur working to build a business, or a girl boss with a six-figure salary, we’ve got something in common.
We’re all busy!
There always seems to be too much to do and too little time to do it in. Maybe you feel like this momprenuer, who recently messaged me for help:
It doesn’t matter what I am doing, I always feel as if I should be doing something else…It’s absolutely overwhelming. When I have a project that needs to be finished and have to work, I feel like I’m not present enough in my children’s life. Then, when I make time to visit the park or attend one of her soccer games, I can hardly resist the desire to pull my phone out and check my email or social media – I constantly wonder if I am missing.
I know how you feel.
I know what it feels like to be in over your head.
I understand how hard it is to balance success with the things that matter most – family, health, faith and community.
For years I ran life in the fast lane – trying to balance a full-time job, a growing business and family.
Forget messy bun and getting stuff done, behind the scenes I was just a hot mess. Suffocating.
And then, I simplified.
Rather than focusing on getting MORE stuff done, I focused on getting the RIGHT stuff done.
I left full-time work. My income doubled. Then it doubled again.
I paid off my house. I paid cash for a brand new SUV (and haven’t had a car loan since). I bought another house.
I sold my businesses. I took a whole year off to play. I went back to school to get my certification as a business AND life coach.
Now I am on a mission to help women, just like you, level up and reach their big goals in business and life.
From practical tools that will help accomplish your goals and obtain your entrepreneurial dreams, to intentional strategies to achieve growth and personal development I’ve got you girl!
Hi. I am Tauni.
I grew up in a family of DIY’ers. Whether remodeling a home from the studs up, or starting a business from scratch, my parents did it all on their own.
As the oldest, I learned right along with them. I was making sales calls on the company’s largest account before I turned 16 and was a project leader by the time I finished high school.
Despite that early entrepreneurial education, I didn’t want to own a business…I fought it!
After graduating from college, I went on to work in public relations and SWORE I would NEVER run my own business. I wanted the “simple life” I thought a nine to five would provide.
In my twenties, I held down the BEST jobs working with politicians, NBA players and Olympians.
I presented social media campaigns to members of congress, held my own on The Today Show and racked up quotes in the New York Times. I was immersed in social branding and marketing. It was a phenomenal education.
Despite my success at a nine to five, I couldn’t help but take on a side job here and there…
Soon I was consulting with Fortune 500 companies, providing insight into online branding and social media outreach.
As if that wasn’t enough, I launched and was running a successful influencer conference, focused on creative lifestyle bloggers, with upwards of 700 attendees.
My fear of fully embracing my entrepreneurial roots lead me to a 70-plus hour work week, filled with a full-time job I didn’t feel like I could let go of, a full slate of freelance clients and a blogger conference on the side.
Around the same time, I learned that I had cancer. A whole lot of trips to the doctors office, a couple of operations, the loss of my ability to have children (devastating) and more than a month and a half in bed really put things into perspective.
I was suffocating.
I refocused. Instead of suffocating under the layers and layers of work, I started celebrating every day life.
I simplified my business (eventually selling the bulk of my company) and grew my income.
I started celebrating the big and little moments with printable gift tags attached to simple gifts (my love language).
I invested in some serious self-care, which involves reading a lot of books, decorating my home and making a ridiculous number of wreaths for my front door.
I am still obsessed with business.
I spend a significant number of my waking hours studying business strategy, meeting with clients and chatting with followers who hit me up in the grocery store. I even facilitate a 12-week Christ-centered business course for my church on Sundays.
The difference? Today I live out of intention celebrating every moment I can as opposed to suffocating from the daily grind.
Come celebrate with me.
