Meet Blakely, our beautiful little girl! We are so excited for this next chapter in our lives! 😍

We won’t be posting much content on social media for a little while as we are taking this time to enjoy our family!

We are feeling abundantly grateful for the life we have been blessed to create and for the flexibility to have the time to be together as a family as we adjust to this new season of life as a family of 4💜

Probably the #1 question we get asked is, how do I get motivated? Short answer- you don't!

You are rarely going to feel motivated, so you have to hack your brain to get going sometimes.

Tune in to learn a few tips about how to get moving towards your goals.


In this video, we are going to talk about a question you likely didn’t think to ask, but you should! That question is: What habits do I need to develop to become a successful entrepreneur?


Some content creation humor 😂 but seriously…

I wish this was truly the only possible explanation as to why no one is engaging with your content.

The truth is, there could be many reasons for your lack of engagement.

Here are a few possible reasons:
👉🏻 You aren’t posting content for your niche
👉🏻 You aren’t being authentic
👉🏻 Your content is generic/not visually appealing
👉🏻 You aren’t writing strong captions


Ducks in a row still 💩…😂

How many times have you said when I get my ducks in a row I will do (insert whatever you’re procrastinating on)?

It’s a very common excuse we hear from people about why they can’t or won’t follow through on their goals and dreams.

Life is always going to be tough, and you will always face challenges. And while we are big fans of proper preparation and we do believe in seasons of life and good timing, at some point, you just have to start!

It’s okay to cry and about it and get back out there. Sometimes it’s the only way to get it done!

No one has it all together, and behind closed doors we all have struggles even if we are thriving in some or many areas of life.

If you’re in need of guidance on how to get “unstuck” and get out there, let’s connect! ✨👇🏻


Stop waiting to feel motivated‼️

You have to act your way into a feeling my friends! We are only ever motivated to do things we like and want to do.

Want to take your home business online? Before the pandemic, this may have been optional, but now it has all but become a necessity. Tune in tonight to learn about 3 strategic steps you can take to get that process started!


🤔 Sometimes our biggest form of procrastination is thinking & planning.

Ask yourself if that’s the case for you!


Everyone’s journey is unique to them!

The best way to ensure your success is to find the right mentor, and the right plan to execute and get to work!

Consistency over a sustained period of time is key, but first make sure you are consistent at a plan that you know works!

Time frames will always very, but if you’re working hard, and following a good blueprint, they will come!

Nothing worthwhile that is sustainable will come over night, don’t fall for the allure of “easy”.

If you’re in search of the right coach, or the right plan, send us a direct message and we can chat! We promise not to try and pitch you anything, just real people who are open to a conversation and may be able to help 😊




? — Ain’t nobody got time for that 🤪

All silliness aside, protecting yourself from negative and toxic people is one of the most crucial parts of being successful in anything!

We are who we hang around and we are more impressionable than we think!

As a recovering pessimist myself, I know how hard it can be to change and to be optimistic when you were conditioned from a young age to view everything through a glass half full lens.

But thankfully we have the ability to change how we think and how we view things. What a blessing right?! 🙏🏻

Happy Monday y’all! 💕


It’s true, they’re watching 👀

So keep up the good work!


Don’t give up on your !

Will it be hard? Yes.

Will you want to quit? Yes.

Will you work long days? Yes.

But nothing beats the results of taking control of your own life. ✨


If you want to build a great team, these are a few steps that will help you do that!


Any other business school graduates relate⁉️ 👇🏻👇🏻👇🏻

I remember being told and believing that having a degree was the ultimate key🔑 to success in life.

I’m not saying that college is bad, I actually learned a lot in college but mostly about hard work and how to function as an adult—Not necessarily about applicable business strategies, principles, and mindset.

Thank God I found other like minded successful entrepreneurs who took me under their wing.

I have learned more from receiving mentorship from other entrepreneurs than I ever did in school. Which is why we are such big advocates of coaching and mentorship‼️

If you are struggling to get your home business off the ground, let’s chat! ✨

Check out our blog with some tips on how to attract the right people to you! 👇🏻👇🏻👇🏻


It’s so satisfying‼️ Am I right⁉️😂

Sometimes we all need a “win”.

But be careful that you aren’t “winning” at things that make you feel productive but aren’t actually moving you forward towards your goals.

I am of this at times for sure, are you⁉️


Sometimes you have to do things you don’t want to, to get where you want to go!

Unfortunately, not everything we do for our businesses can be enjoyable.

Of course there are parts you like (or there should be) but often times the things we need to do to grow our business aren’t our favorite activities.

Always ask yourself, is the outcome worth the work? If it is, then do it!

If you’re struggling with developing a strategy for building your business, check out our blog or message us to connect! 👇🏻


PSA- mistakes are unavoidable if you’re doing the work!

And as much as this hurts my heart to say, we can’t plan for everything. Trust me, we try 😂

Sometimes being flexible and adaptable is all you can do on this entrepreneurial rollercoaster!


Struggling to build a ❓🧐

In our latest video we go into detail about why that might be.

👇🏻Here are a few reasons why you aren’t attracting and growing a great team.

Check out our recent video for more information!


Being your own boss is great! Until it’s not… 😂

Being self employed is not for the faint of heart or the unorganized/lazy.

It’s actually harder to create your own schedule/disciplined routine than it is to be managed by someone else who tells you what/when to do things.

BUT… I wouldn’t want it any other way. Getting to a point of financial independence is about more than just making enough money to quit your job.

It’s also about the journey of learning to be self disciplined, to work when you don’t “have to” so you can then work when you want to.

Having the right coach can help you establish routines, discipline and the proper mindset to achieve this goal of having financial independence.

In order to grow a successful company you need to build a dream team!

If you are struggling to build a dream team, tune in tonight to learn a few reasons why that may be.


As the great once said… you better work! 🎶

Once the honey moon phase passes and the dust settles, there will always be hard work to do in your business.

A couple tips to not get stuck in the pattern of avoiding the work you don’t want to do but need to do to grow your business 👇🏻👇🏻👇🏻

1️⃣Schedule it into your day at the time of the day that you know you’re the most productive

2️⃣Time block it into your day in small chunks so it doesn’t get dreadful & overwhelming. We can do anything for short periods of time.

3️⃣ Keep your “why” in front of you so you remember in the moment why you are doing it in the first place.

4️⃣Reward yourself by structuring your day in a way that puts your most rewarding activities right after the ones you dislike so you have that as an incentive to look forward to.

Overcoming objections is a big part of the entrepreneurial journey.

These are a few common reasons why you may be hearing “no”.

For tips on how to overcome these objections check out our video on this 👇🏻👇🏻👇🏻


The McGougan family is growing! Can’t wait to meet our little girl 🥰


When I say support your friend’s businesses, people automatically assume I mean “buy from them”.

And while that is a great thing to do (if they offer something you need and like) there are other ways to support if that’s not the case!


As entrepreneurs we all experience rejection, it is part of the process in building any business! Tonight we will be discussing some of the most common objections and how we handle them.


As the great would say… haters gonna hate, hate, hate, hate, hate 💁🏼‍♀️

Keep your head down, keep working hard and one day people will start telling you you’re “lucky” 🍀😉

Has this ever happened to y’all?! 👇🏻👇🏻


Facing resistance but still want to hit your ? Check out these !

I know I know, planning and strategizing is so much more fun than actually doing the work!

But you can spend all the time in the world preparing to start, and even create the best plan ever, but if you don’t start trying and doing, you’ll never accomplish your goals!

Get to work 🙌🏻


One major mindset shift we had to make when starting our own business was learning that failure is not only ok, but NECESSARY ‼️

From a young age we are conditioned to think that failure is bad and to strive for things like straight A’s, perfect attendance etc.

When we start our careers we learn how easily replaceable we are, and our fear of failure only deepens.

Make too many mistakes in corporate, you’re fired.

When you start your own business you have to accept that you WILL fail, a lot! Thankfully you won’t fire yourself 😂

The only way to grow and improve in business is to learn, go out and do, evaluate that effort, improve, and go out and do it again!

Having a mentor can greatly reduce the amount of failure and risk you take on by being an entrepreneur.

What stories of failure do you have that you’ve learned from❓🤔 share with us below 👇🏻

Let’s connect ✨👇🏻


The struggles of life hit all of us! The question is, what do you do when it happens? Tonight we will be talking about how to move forward towards your goals when you are facing resistance.


Sometimes the is hard to hear!

And unfortunately hitting your is often going to require more work, more time, and more effort than you originally thought!

But if the is big enough, it will be worth it!

Keep pushing 🙌🏻


Make sure that you’re evaluating the people who are giving you advice.

If they don’t have any fruit on the tree, politely nod and say thanks 😊

Everyone has an opinion but that doesn’t mean you should take every piece of advice given to you.

Evaluate the person, evaluate the advice they’re giving you and how it would work for you and your specific business, and own the decision you make to head or not head their advice!


We love supporting other entrepreneurs and their endeavors!

Pay it forward y’all! 🥰

If someone tells you otherwise..
RUN‼️ 🏃‍♂️

I see it too often where people make overaggerated claims about what their opportunity or service can do for someone.

As John Maxwell says, under promise and over deliver. That is the way to ensure you’re providing value and excellence in whatever you do.

The reality is, creating an income stream outside of your job that can ultimately replace your job income is totally possible! But you need to have realistic expectations and timelines.

Nothing great comes easy. We are big believers in clarifying reality for those we mentor.

Make sure you find a coach who tells you what you need to hear, not just what you want to hear!

It’s hard to act surprised 😂

Being coachable and teachable are key components to success in anything.

If you have someone who has gone before you on the path and is willing to give you advice from a place of accomplishment, you should take their advice!

Being mentored by other successful leaders can save you a ton of time and headaches.

Some education for ya on a Thursday morning 👇🏻👇🏻👇🏻

Most people mean well, and aren’t trying to be mean.. but for years I have heard people ignorantly say things like “oh like one of those pyramid things?” 🤦🏼‍♀️

My response is simply: how does it work at your job? 🤔

The problem is, most people truly don’t know. They don’t understand the corporate structure where they work, because as long as they get a paycheck, they don’t care 🤷🏼‍♀️

ALL businesses that have employees, contractors, partners etc. have a pyramid structure.

I worked in HR for years, I literally used to develop corporate hierarchy charts for companies. They are all shaped the same! 🔺

Don’t confuse pyramid structure with pyramid scheme, they are VERY different things‼️
