As women we are driven; as entrepreneurs that drive goes into a whole new level.

In our perpetual goal to juggle, multi-task, and keep up with the non-existent ‘Jones’, take a moment…. and breathe.

So far this week I have had over a dozen conversations with clients who are dropping the ball on things that really matter in their lives, and you know why? Because they own too many balls!

I ask that you remember this… likely half those balls you’re trying so hard to manage right now are not necessary or, aren’t even yours to begin with.

At some point, whether it was a conscious decision or not, you decided to make them your own.

The problem is that these non-essential balls pull away and distract your time, your energy and your focus on the things that matter most.  You are weighing yourself down with things that don’t matter and then likely beating yourself up because you are not hitting targets and successes that you want to obtain.

I am saying without hesitation that it’s okay for you to drop the balls sometimes, and it’s also okay to get rid of balls that are crappy and give back balls that don’t belong to you!

There are no Jones’ out there, if you’re going to compete, then focus on being the best version of yourself today. Compete with who you are and who you want to become.

We all have gifts and talents; don’t focus on what others can do, focus on how amazing you are!

You’re awesome.  I know you are.  Please go out there and shine!
