What if you decided you were no longer available for average?

Imagine waking up every day, feeling absolutely certain that you are about to do your best work. Imagine being so obsessed with your own life, that the idea of comparing yourself to a stranger on social media seems laughable. Envision yourself, completely aligned with the woman you know you’re meant to be: dressing like her, doing business like her, earning income like her, attracting dream opportunities like her. Imagine reclaiming your time, owning your day, and truly, finally, stepping into your power as a successful business woman.

I can vividly recall fantasizing about the life I have right now. Just a few years ago, sitting under the fluorescent-lit cubicle at my day job, I desperately dreamed of walking into The Plaza Hotel, placing my jumbo black caviar leather Chanel purse on the seat next to me, and ordering a lobster salad and a glass of Veuve Clicquot. In my mind, I would open my brand new rose gold Mac air book, log into my email, and read countless emails from women whose lives I had touched. While sipping my crisp, ice-cold glass of bubbly, I’d sign on new coaching clients, field emails from my book editor, and make plans for that evening to try that hot new restaurant that had just opened. Some days I’d fantasize about flying first-class from New York to London to meet with my U.K. publisher to go do press for my new book. Some days I’d imagine spending an entire afternoon in my fluffy, white bath robe, simply deciding that the day would be better spent leisurely relaxing in bed, because that’s what I craved energetically.

I get chills as I write this all, because every single thing in that visualization came true. And it continues to come true. This is my new standard of living.

But that wasn’t always my story. Raised by a single mother and left by a drug-addicted, deadbeat father, I didn’t grow up with money, mentors, or anyone to open a door for me. I knew from a young age I’d need to create my own opportunities. Although I didn’t have much, I had dreams, and those were my most valuable asset. My passion drove me. I knew I wanted a better life for myself, and I knew the path to get there would require a laser-focused belief in myself.

But it took time. And faith. And confidence. And waking up every morning going to a job I hated because I had to pay the bills. And trying new things, and failing, and trying again. And sneaking into Facebook groups when my co-workers weren’t looking, and asking millions of questions to other women entrepreneurs who were 10 steps ahead of me. And facing rejection after rejection. And spending my last dollars to pay for coaching courses because I knew the power of personal development if I was ever gonna get the hell out of that reality. And using my own knowledge as a life coach to work through my own bullshit and master my own mind.

Here’s the thing: I always knew, deep down, that I was meant for more. I knew I had great business ideas. I knew how to write blogs and post on social media. I knew how to life coach. And what I didn’t know, I could hire someone to do. So why wasn’t I fully embodying everything I wanted in my life? Why couldn’t I pull the trigger on my dreams and live without fear? Why couldn’t I fully be the woman I wanted to be?

It wasn’t another webinar on marketing strategies that I needed. I needed a way to eradicate those dream-slaughtering beliefs continually crept into the back of my mind. Those scary “adult” voices of parents and accountants warning against fantasy worlds and urging me to cling to any old boring job simply because it offered a retirement plan. I had to get over the fear of hearing the “Who does she think she is?” voice from every mean girl I’d ever met. And I had to learn to overcome the biggest bully of all – myself.

Through my extensive training and education as a life coach, my immersion in the positive psychology and optimal living world, and my experience and success as a personal development author, I was able to completely transform my own life. I was able to muster the courage to walk away from my day job, with little to no savings, and take a chance on myself. I created and implemented my own powerful mindset shifts, custom strategies, and actionable steps to raise my vibration and program my mind for success.

I am now a bestselling author of seven personal development books, the host of a top-rated podcast with 4 million listeners in a little over a year, a high-earning life coach with clients around the world, and a woman who is so incredibly fulfilled and excited about every single day (and I am no longer under those fluorescent lights!)

I have gone on to help thousands of other women transform their lives and businesses. And now I want to help you.

Introducing…the STYLE YOUR MIND FOR SUCCESS workbook.

It may be leaving your day job. It may be getting to the next level in your business. It may be ascending to the most exquisite version of yourself so that you can show up in the world and finally do what you are meant to do. It may be upgrading your life and deciding you are no longer available for struggle. You decide what success looks like for you. Together, we’ll work through my proven processes and style your mind to make it all happen.

After spending a decade in the self-help space, both personally and professionally, I noticed one resounding theme: lots of very excited, passionate women losing their zest for entrepreneurship just as quickly as they found it.

Year after year, I’d meet new business women at networking events, in my social circles, through coaching masterminds and on social media who were frustrated. They’d invested thousands of dollars with business coaches and self-proclaimed “gurus” who promised blueprints to success. They were overdosing on webinars, books, and very expensive seminars hoping to find a one-size-fits-all approach to business. And none of it was working long-term, nor did it feel natural or authentic to them, because there is no one-size-fits-all blueprint for success. They were overwhelmed and uninspired, and losing hope fast.

These women knew the importance of nurturing their business, but they were missing one incredibly important piece of the puzzle: mastering their own mindset.

And I’m not just talking about reading The Secret or listening to a podcast about affirmations. The work required to build a solid understanding of yourself in the role of an entrepreneur is intense. And without a solid understanding of who you are in this brave new world of business, you’ll find it nearly impossible to overcome the inevitable challenges in your business, grit through difficult times, make confident decisions, and achieve long-term success. This kind of mastery takes dedication to self-awareness and the tools to practice it daily. It takes the guidance and mentoring from a professional woman who has been there herself, and helped thousands of other women through it as well.

You may have read my bestselling book GIRL CODE. In it, I share my own personal experiences in building my business, along with interviews with other female entrepreneurs from all different industries about how they built theirs. Filled with inspirational stories and mindset shifts, GIRL CODE has become a global sensation. But as successful as the book has been, I knew my audience craved more. You wanted a deeper dive, including actionable, practical tools to help you take that inspiration and create real change in your lives.

I created STYLE YOUR MIND FOR SUCCESS for female entrepreneurs who want to increase their energetic vibration, build their confidence, get crystal clear on their vision, and become success magnets.  As a certified master life coach and bestselling personal development author, I know one thing to be true: Your business will only thrive if you do.

I have worked with countless women through my books, courses, and private coaching programs over the years to help them elevate their thoughts, upgrade their standards, and renew their sense of self. My clients have shifted from feeling low-energy, overwhelmed, and confused, to feeling razor-sharp, aligned, and filled with joy for their lives and businesses. They have grown the same way I have. They continue to level up the same way I do, every day.

I am obsessed with helping women transform their businesses by elevating their thoughts and upgrading their lives. Consider STYLE YOUR MIND FOR SUCCESS an opportunity for me to be your private business coach. Are you ready?

 

THIS WORKBOOK IS FOR YOU IF:

You’re still not experiencing the success you desire in your business

You spend a lot of time in your head

You don’t feel successful

You compare yourself to everyone else in your industry

You’re afraid to ask for sales and you aren’t making the money you want to make

You desperately want to live your passion, feel in flow, and do what you love with certainty

You feel unorganized and overwhelmed in your life and business

You don’t really know who you are as a business woman (you find yourself trying to emulate other women’s business style)

Your inner circle doesn’t really “get” what you do (most people think you play on Facebook all day or your side hustle is a hobby)

You often feel guilty for putting yourself first

You don’t feel as powerful as you know you could

 

THROUGH THIS WORKBOOK, I WILL TEACH YOU TO:

-Get crystal clear on your vision for your business

-Understand the power of confidence and show you how to cultivate it in every moment

-Create an energetic outline for your life so that you can serve yourself and your clients better

-Truly learn to decide the woman you want to be and embody her fully

-Curate your circle both online and offline so that you are completely supported

-Redefine success on your own terms

Get over the concept of failure

-Establish and implement success rituals and powerful ways of living every day

 

Sound good? Before we begin, you’ll need to trash any beliefs that you cannot design the business and the life of your dreams. The only way to make the most of this experience is to believe that everything is possible. I’ll be asking you some tough questions – it’s on you to answer them truthfully. It’s time to get real with yourself, push your own limits, and finally understand that you deserve it all.

Make sure you add your name to my email list (sign up is located at the bottom of this page) so that you are notified as soon as the book drops later this month!

With love, and loads of success,

Cara

I had a moment yesterday. I was talking to my biz besties, Gwen and Dara from the Pretty Electric podcast, and I shared a question with them that I always ask myself as the end of the year is creeping in: “Where do I want to be when the ball drops on New Years Eve?”

And I don’t just mean where do I want to physically be. I mean where do I want to be emotionally, financially, spiritually – all of it. What will I be wearing? What will I be celebrating? Who will I be with? What will I be looking forward to?

Ask yourself that question right now and tell me it does not give you full body chills…

Think about it: we’re already in September. The kids are back in school, before we know it, the holidays will be here, and we’ll be standing in someone’s living room, with a glass of champagne in our hands, counting down as that ball drops, wondering where the year went.

I want to help you make the most of these last few months of 2018. And I don’t want us to do it alone. #GIRLCODE

I am beyond thrilled to introduce to you something I am so excited for – THE GIRL CODE MASTERMIND: A high-level supportive circle for ambitious female entrepreneurs.

And the only current opportunity to be coached by yours truly – a certified master life coach, bestselling author, and creator of a worldwide movement that has inspired hundreds of thousands of women around the globe.

I’m looking for 10 driven women who are ready to band together in sisterhood to BLOW the doors off their lives AND their businesses over the next few months.

Women who are ready to be coached DIRECTLY by me to cut through their own bullshit and blaze a new trail.

Women who are craving dedicated, intensive, loving and raw support of like-minded souls.

Women who are ready to face what’s not working, and figure out where they need to step up their game.

Women who are ready to release the old, and invite the new.

Women who are ready to go beyond an inspirational post or podcast, and show up to do the work.

Is this you?

We will meet weekly, on Monday evenings at 7 PM ET, for 6 calls via live video chats (all will be recorded and yours to keep forever).

You will set your own goals during the course of our work together, and I will hold you accountable to all of them. Each call will feature live, on the spot coaching, motivation, personal check-ins, and Q&A.

Consider this a space where you can share your wildest fantasies – without judgment – and receive the support to start making them your REALITY.

Consider this a space to get the support you may not be receiving from your friends, your spouse, or your co-workers.

We’ll be dreaming, but we’ll also be working, hard and fast. This experience is not for the woman who makes excuses or says she does not have enough time.

WHAT YOU GET:

6 live group coaching/mastermind calls where I will coach you, brainstorm with you, and answer all your questions. These calls will be recorded and sent to you so you can keep them forever.

You set the tone for each call. You show up with your own goals. I coach you on the spot, and help you develop an action plan each week.

Worksheets and assignments to inspire you to think differently.

Do you ever wonder what makes some women IRRESISTIBLE, undeniable, and super successful? It’s all in the vibe, baby. I like to say I see the world through rosé colored glasses. I make it a point to choose optimistic, positive, blissful thoughts, which create an optimistic, positive, blissful reality. And it’s NOT hard to do.

I usually take the Kamagra soft tabs, as they are not that bitter (the weekenders are of course better, as they taste like milk powder), but the normal ones do not really bother me either. I chew it and then just rinse with a little water.

The first step to making any real change in our lives and our businesses is to change our energy. Our energy, or vibration, is the frequency we put out into the world that determines the quality of our experiences. Getting in a high vibe is the quickest way to supercharge your soul and skyrocket your success. And there are tons of ways to do it that don’t cost a dollar.

If there is one major key to business it’s this: we cannot create quality content from a low vibration.

In Episode 109 of Style Your Mind, I will help you identify what is, and what is not serving you, raise your frequency, and create your energetic outline for your success. So pour yourself another double espresso or a glass of bubbles and dig in here!

If you’re anything like me, you equate relaxing with a night big fat glass of wine. I mean, who doesn’t? I won’t lie, the mellow buzz that comes from those first few sips of red is blissful. Light some candles, get a little giddy, and let the stresses of the day melt away while you devour a few episodes of the Real Housewives. This was my nightly routine. Until I realized those few glasses of wine were wreaking havoc on my sleep, my skin, my gut health, and my weight.

The first time I realized I needed to cut back on my evening “wine down” time, I panicked. How was I going to shut off after a long day? Could I get tired on my own? Would I sleep? These were all pretty legit thoughts, as I was using red wine as a bit of a tranquilizer at night. I don’t know about you, but I have one of those brains that does not stop. If there’s a thought to think of, I’m thinking of it. Time for bed! Let’s replay every conversation we’ve had over the last month, think about renting vs. buying, mentally plan out our next vacation, and debate over which shoes would look best with that new dress.

I knew I needed to create a new healthy routine at night that would allow me to chill out without alcohol (at least most nights). I started doing a little research and trying some new things out, and here’s what’s been working for me. And for those who are wondering, I still enjoy wine if I go out to dinner, or on the occasional night I’m really in the mood for it, but I try to keep it out of the house. I probably enjoy it, on average, one night a week these days. And it’s made a big difference.

Bedtime tea. And the one I drink has catnip in it, ya’ll! Yes, CATNIP. But before you envision me sucking on a mouse made of yarn, let me clarify. The catnip herb has relaxation properties in it that also help calm your nerves. It’s soothing and has been known to help you prepare for sleep. I drink Traditional Medicinals Nighty Night. You can grab it in most supermarkets, on Amazon, or on their site. This stuff makes me slightly drowsy and just helps me unwind a bit. Nothing crazy. But it works. I also love Yogi bedtime tea. Both have pretty much the same effects.

Hot pink bubble bath. Okay, it doesn’t have to be pink. But it helps. I love to take a bath at night and throw in a Lush bath bomb with essential oils. I imagine the stress of the day melting off me as I soak. I take a few minutes to replay the high points of the day in my mind and celebrate everything I accomplished.

Limiting phone/screen time an hour before bed. I used to lay in bed with my phone glued to my hand for at least an hour – sometimes more. Like, really Cara? Do you need to be on Instagram right up until your eyeballs close? I read that separating yourself from the phone and computer about an hour before bedtime really helps you disconnect, so I decided to give it a try. It honestly helps so much. I won’t lie – at first I had to get over the crippling anxiety of not knowing what my very last email of the night was going to be, but I got over it (LOL). I now turn on a mindless show like the Real Housewives of Anywhere, and sip my catnip tea in peace.

Lavender essential oil. This. gives. me. LIFE. Diffused or on my wrists, or both. I love lavender. It’s such a beautiful scent that really helps take the edge off. I dab a few drops on my wrists and do a few inhales as I’m getting ready for bed. When I inhale, I imagine myself breathing in positive thoughts, and when I exhale, I imagine myself breathing out the stress of the day. I sometimes even throw a few drops in my aromatherapy diffuser and let the soothing scent help me drift off as I watch Ramona fight for the best bedroom in Mexico. (any Real Housewives fans out there!?)

Gratitude. As soon as I get in bed, I immediately begin thinking of everything I’m thankful for. I list each thing off in my mind. I am usually out by the time I’m on number 5 or so. It’s honestly such a peaceful and happy ritual and it always puts me at ease. Note: this also works for any situation you may feel anxious in. I do it when I’m about to take off on an airplane, or whenever I experience rough turbulence that makes me nervous (spoiler alert: I’m not the best flyer!)

Visualization. If my gratitude list doesn’t knock me out, I turn to visualization. I imagine, in detail, how I want my next day to look. I think about what I’m wearing, what I want to experience – all happy things. Sometimes I even replay really exciting moments in my life that make me feel good. I just allow myself to get lost in my mind and it feels so good. Remember: your thoughts create your reality. Make sure they are fabulous!

 

With love and moderation,

Cara
