READY IS A LIE - Done Is Better Than Perfect
You aren't going to have the perfect body. You aren't going to have perfect prep days. A perfect job. Perfect workouts. A perfect partner. A perfect dog. A perfect business. Believing that we're suppose to though can be the rock that blocks the road to transformation each and every time. No one has this figured out- but you know how you make progress is nearly every aspect of your life? Just starting, and then staying consistent through all your royal blunders because there are going to be a f*ck ton. It won't be perfect. It won't be pretty most days. But whatever goal you set, CAN be accomplished if you just jump. Jump before you feel ready. Jump because it's not perfect. Jump because it's not perfectly put together yet. Don't stall any longer. Clock in. Done is better than perfect. Join all the self-love wins and celebrations on IG @ ( - I can't wait to hear from you, babe!

THE GRAPHIC TEE NARRATIVE - You're Undercharging, Sis
If you've been struggling to make a comfortable and scaleable profit in your business, then this episode is for YOU. I've been there, sis. Massively undercharging for an amazing service, only to be stressed, burnt out, and still broke. So many entrepreneurs fail for this very reason. What I've learned in my first three years of business is that, other people's budgets are not your business. If someone wants what you offer, they'll find a way. So market yourself, invest in yourself, carry yourself like the confident business owner you are. Be unapologetic about your worth, and watch your business flourish because of it.

PUT YOUR BLINDERS ON - Comparing Yourself to Other Women
Whew! It feels good to be back on the mic. This week, we're talking all about putting on our blinders. Focusing solely and entirely on our journey, our progress, our wins, our lessons. I know first hand how it feels to think someone else's success or story should be yours... but one thing I've learned during this short time on earth is that no one can replicate you, or your story, and sometimes our failures are someone else's inspiration. Guess what? Intentional Tees JUST restocked! Go grab yours and get intentional AF, sis. Head over to and hit the "SHOP" tab!

"Who am I to launch this business?" "Am I smart enough for this masters program?" "I don't think my boss would give me a raise..." "I'm not talented enough" "Who cares what I have to say" ... All thoughts that I know have entered your brain a time or two because they've entered mine, a million times over. Phases of sheer and utter doubt. Doubting your ability in your passion, doubting your worth, doubting your talent. This week, we're talking all about imposter syndrome, recognizing when it sneaks up, and subsequently telling it to go f*ck itself.

EMBRACE THE SUCK - The Post Grad Struggle Bus
It's going to suck... really bad, until it gets better, and that even sucks to think about. But, remember that growth happens in that dark, uncomfortable, and shitty place. It's the spark that ignites that little piece in you that wants better, and can do better; the piece of you who has to steam ahead because you have no other option if you want to create the life you want. Today, Shantel is sharing one of the suckier parts in her life, ahh..... post-grad, a part that was monumental to both the growth in her personal life, and her business. The "finding yourself" phase is real, and hits hardest when you feel like you should have already figured "you" out.

GET UNCOMFORTABLE - Do More Sh*t That Scares You
Growth and transformation only and solely happen when you're standing outside your comfort zone. It doesn't happen by playing it safe. You don't get that promotion, lose that 20 pounds, sign your first client, book your first sale, by doing the same thing you've always done. Step out on that limb sis, and challenge your norm. Challenge your mindset, your way of thinking and do things you wouldn't usually do. The growth that comes from that is.... *chef's kiss* Join all the self-love wins and celebrations on IG @ ( - I can't wait to hear from you, babe!

WHAT YOU SEE IS WHAT YOU GET - Visualizing Your Wildest Dreams
Today, not only are we celebrating Force of Habit's first 10,000 downloads (Woo!!) but we're talking all about visualizing techniques that will change your life. While I love a a solid vision board, what I've realized over the last couple of years is that sometimes visualizing your life is more than pictures- if you want boutique, go find the actual space that exists and stand in it, look at it and envision exactly how it's going to look when you own it one day. The color on the wall, the set up of the racks, how many employees you're going to have. Get specific, and forget all about not feeling ready, f*ck that. Manifest your dreams brick by brick, day by day. Join all the self-love wins and celebrations on IG @ ( - I can't wait to hear from you, babe!

TALK TO ME NICE - Affirming The Life You Want
"You're so stupid, why did you just do that?", "You aren't as creative as her to have your own business" "You're so fat" "You're so skinny" "This outfit isn't cute" ... Thought those were things women were saying to other women? Ha, no. These are thoughts that we often have about ourselves, to ourselves. Sometimes the biggest bully we'll ever face in our life is well.... us. Affirmations aren't corny, a trend, or silly- it's a conscious effort to fill your head with thoughts that uplift and support you, not kick you while you're down. Ready for a ton of F bombs and a kick in the pants? GOOD! You're in the right spot. Let's get this "get together" session started.
