For those that don’t know me, I am a wife, mama of 3 boys, Certified High Performance Coach, Author, RE Broker, Serial Entrepreneur and am obsessed with all things real estate and business.
Remember my FIRST EVER Vacation Rental – Villa Bella Mermaid? By keeping a close eye on the Real Estate Market, utilizing Creative Financing, and having faith that things happen for a reason, we are still reaping the benefits of that investment! Like I mentioned in a previous blog post (Just In the Nick of Time) […]
As much as we would like to force things sometimes, the universe has other plans!
“You have to make it happen. No one’s going to do it for you. No one is going to show up to work one day and say, ‘Hey, I got you. I got you covered. You don’t have to work. You go away and you enjoy yourself. It just doesn’t happen.”
This takes a ton of courage to do and try, but you are worth it. So many studies show that those who take time to recharge are more creative, more motivated and do better quality work!
Things rarely feel how you expect them to. Sometimes better, sometimes worse and sometimes you feel nothing, and that’s ok. I think we as people have a natural tendency to put so much anticipation and anxiety into what things should feel like and when it does not happen, we feel that something is wrong with us. We need to remember to just be present and observe what is actually happening in the moment without forcing it because that also sets us up for failure and disappointment. And above all do not self-judge. Forgive yourself if you do and then check back into the present again and just be.
The less that you take care of yourself, the less time and energy you have to put into your day. This could start with 8 hours of sleep each night that sets you up to complete a healthy morning routine. This could also be something as simple as adding a few steps to your day, scheduling self care, taking 5 mins here and there throughout the day to just be, breathe, or stretch even.
It is easy on your journey to Live Limitless to overbook yourself. Even after you have sat down to prioritize your daily tasks and delegate what you can, you may still have a pretty full plate for the day – but that doesn’t mean there aren’t ways to manage it and still find joy in the process.
No matter what your role – owner, employee, independent consultant, etc. the key to enjoying your job and your life is figuring out what is the highest and best use of your time and delegating the things that don’t fit that description.
No challenge is unbeatable – you just need a fortified plan to get you through!
Vacation Rentals have been a passion project of mine for a long time – so much so that I not only own and operate multiple, I even created my very own Vacation Rental Management Company as I began to see a need for it in my community. Our first Vacation Rental, Villa Bella Mermaid, served […]
I truly want you all to live vibrant, abundant lives and if you head down this road sooner rather than later, that is all the more wealth and freedom that you can create and grow!
It’s almost as if it was all on purpose when in reality it’s dreaming big, writing it down, taking chances, facing your fears, educating yourself, leaning in and not listening to the naysayers that have NOT been there themselves.
Stress is a part of life. While you can’t prevent the stress, you can control the way that you manage it. If you’ve been a part of any of my coaching sessions before, I know I’ve talked about the importance of making lists to manage your priorities and keep you focused throughout the day. Writing […]
I truly believe that everyone can benefit from a High Performance Coach – so much so that I have had one myself! When I was being coached, I didn’t realize how caged I felt at my businesses and how overwhelmed and stressed out I felt in so many different ways. I can remember thinking, “How […]
Living a Limitless Life and being authentic to yourself is not an option; it’s an obligation – and as a High Performance Coach, I am here to give you the support (and sometimes the kick in the butt) you need to make it happen. As you may know, I am a Serial Entrepreneur. Once or […]
Variety in your investment portfolio is a must! But how do you decide what that variety should be?
It is important to check in with your vacation rentals from time to time to see what does need some attention. I know you will lose revenue from a few nights here and there, but like the gutters above it is better than waiting till there is a BIG problem or a bad review.
Doesn’t that always seem to be the truth with all things in life? Whether it be your first home, kid, heartbreak, business, investment property…the list goes on and on. Why is that?
Life happens and is always happening…we can make excuses for why it isn’t the “right” time or we can just lean in and figure it out.
There are so many amazing destinations to choose from for a vacation rental! Florida tends to be the most popular state for them overall, but that doesn’t necessarily mean that it is the most profitable!
Why I love Real Estate and what it can turn into…
What should I do?… Should I just try to save money and do it myself? What does a property manager even do anyway?… Maybe I should try for a while myself and then go with one if it doesn’t work out… Maybe I should go with one and then try to do it myself…
You asked and I have listened! I have received several questions about zoning/codes and how to figure out what is allowed where you want to create and operate a vacation rental. I talked about it in my book and course more in depth from how to make an offer contingent on it, to “the why” […]
Have you ever wanted to try to do something or emulate someone’s successes so that you could be successful like them, but didn’t know where to start? You dreamt up a wild, crazy idea or dream, only to get excited for a moment and then overwhelm yourself with the idea and how it may not […]
Drawing from her experience as a self-made real estate broker and entrepreneur, the book serves as a comprehensive resource for all aspects of owning and operating a vacation rental, including buying, managing, dressing, pricing, and maintaining the property.
I am so excited to be finally posting my first blog post. It has been a long time coming and we are here! For those that don’t know me, I am a wife, mama of 3 boys, Certified High Performance Coach, Author, RE Broker, Serial Entrepreneur and am obsessed with all things real estate and business. Since 2005 when I began my real estate career real estate career, I started from the bottom and worked my way up to both top agent and then top brokerage. Along the way, I created other businesses by setting goals and then putting in the blood, sweat, tears, and determination that was needed to make them happen.
In the last few years, both our interests and portfolios have changed and evolved. I happened to fall into the idea of vacation rentals and the amazing bonuses and blessings that come along with them. From free vacation homes to someone else creating equity and additional income for me and my family – it was a no-brainer!!! I have been hooked ever since and we now have vacation rentals all over the country. I also absolutely helping others take their lives to the next level personally and professionally through my Limitless Coaching. I recently was Certified by Author Brendon Burchard as a CHPC and am so grateful to have the opportunity to help other high performers.
My goal in life is to empower and inspire people to get out of their comfort zones and build confidence in themselves so that they can live abundant lives and never settle for less than what they deserve or want. Life is what you make it, so let’s make it Limitless!
I would love you hear from you with any thoughts or questions that you may have!
