Recently, I was in the middle of a workout and I wasn’t feeling it. I was tired, sweaty, and felt like giving up… and I needed to think of something to help me push through to the end.I was trying to decide what could help me get through the last 25 minutes of my cycle class, and I decided to express gratitude. But I didn’t think about expressing gratitude for people you’d expect--my friends, family, and people who support me.Instead, I decided to express gratitude for those who have tried to put me down, who tried to put limits on me, and those who have doubted me.>>I think it’s easy to thank your fans, but it’s hard to thank your haters…. And it’s just as important because without your haters, you wouldn’t be where you are today.<<In this episode, you’ll hear me thank the business partner who moved on without me. You’ll hear me express gratitude for the event organizer and CEO that didn’t pay me to keynote their conference, despite the reviews and requests from attendees.

Do you know what determines your success?No, it’s not money, talent, or connections… >>Buttercup, contrary to popular belief, the biggest determining factor of your success is your mindset.<<On that note, this episode of a  Social Curator Coaching Session is unique because the questions were more focused around business beliefs (things we believe are facts that limit us, or make us lucky, or--maybe, just maybe--give the impression that some of us are destined for greatness and others are not).In this episode, you’ll hear me answer questions about:How to keep up your motivation when people are not engaging with you on social mediaWhen you have a million tasks to get done and you're COMPLETELY overwhelmed by it, how to narrow down WHAT to tackle first and howThe biggest mindset shift around money that helped me grow my businessand more!If you’re ready to tackle the mindset shifts that are holding you back, click play!Friend, on the inside of Social Curator, the business owners I coached in this episode are learning how to be consistent on social media.

I love it. I have no complaints. I honestly do not care if this podcast was from Facebook. O do not go to facebook often because it is too distracting and busy for me so I hope you keep this type of podcast for people like me who prefers to tune in via your podcast.

Loved the first part about procrastination and selfishness. I'm gonna keep that top of mind. Always Love your energy, enthusiasm, and Wisdom. The format though, on this episode, the FB live, wasn't quite as engaging. Hearing you bounce off others, like with their actual voices and emotions, I feel is such a strength that not showcasing it is like leaving money on the table. That said, I could listen to your special brand of Knowledge, Wisdom, Understanding and Wit all day every day. I look forward to hearing, and seeing what ever you bring. Thank You Hotep Y'all 🌄🌄🌄
