Happy last Friday of 2019!

I can hardly believe that 2019 is winding down, and we’re entering a new decade!

It’s got me thinking about how much has happened in the past 10 years…


Me in 2009 vs. 2019

Me in 2009 vs. 2019 - 2020 Goal Setting - A Decade In Review


In 2009, I was:

  • A cheer mom turned retail store owner.
  • Managing my niche store for cheerleaders, Cheer Factory.
  • Working 362 days a year, with mall hours, 10 am-9 pm. (Christmas was more of a day off than a holiday!)
  • Eating mall, food-court food 5-7 days a week (thank God for Chick-fil-A!).
  • Paying mall rent upwards of $5,000 a month!
  • Staying late after work sometimes to 1 am to complete customer orders (and I had school-age kids at home)!
  • Catering to the sport that I love, unfortunately, often with customers that had very unreasonable and unrealistic expectations.
  • Trying to figure out a way to stay profitable while paying employee salaries, business taxes, rising product costs and overhead expenses.


Me In 2009 - A Look Back At A Decade - 2020 Goal-Setting


“Create a job with your hands and a business with your mind.” 

Although I was working in my life’s purpose at that time, I had very little extra time to give, and very little control over external factors that affected my business (taxes, rent, mall hours, etc.).


There’s no way I could imagine my life still that way today.

In 2019, I am:

  • Still living in beautiful VA Beach, now with bicoastal business in my favorite city, fabulous Las Vegas!
  • Running a profitable business from the comfort of my own home office— or wherever I happen to be (on sand, land or at sea)!
  • Impacting the lives of millions through my content and offerings.
  • Leading events, speaking on stages, and sharing my ideas on video, podcasts, and more.
  • Feeling deeply nurtured by an incredible community of entrepreneurs and friends.
  • More excited than ever to be living my purpose— with more time than ever before to offer to my family, friends and fur babies. 😉


Now I don’t want to pretend things are perfect. I still experience challenges in my business and life.

At the same time, I feel tremendous gratitude for everything I have— circa 2009 and today! 

I’m so excited about what’s in store for the next year— and decade!

We tend to overestimate what we can accomplish in a year and underestimate what we can create in a decade.

Looking back at the past 10 years, I truly feel like anything is possible.
