When You Realize That Something Has to Change and NOW

12792186_10157126008615131_736282618585193521_o.jpg

I sometimes think about what people think about when they see me wearing my baby girl and doing an Instagram story.

“Why is she back to work so soon?”

“Why is she working with her baby?”

“Why hasn’t she taken a longer maternity leave?”

I know it’s not my job to wonder what other people think, and that it’s a total waste of energy! I also know that the ways I think others are judging me, are really just the voices of my own self-judgements.

The self-judgment says, “Jillian, you should be farther ahead by now. You should be further along by now.” Can you relate?

Sometimes I forget just how far I HAVE come. Sometimes I forget what life was like five years ago when I wasn’t able to buy a washer/dryer and had to hand wash my son’s cloth diapers in the bathroom sink.

11222604_10156346457040131_7690497745420553929_o.jpg

Before we had visitors to our home, we (my partner and I) would quickly wash the poopy diaper inserts by hand and then hang them to dry. I believe we had a grand total of three cloth diapers to start out, so no matter what, they had to be washed everyday, or we didn’t have any diapers for the next day.

My partner had just started a new job in NJ at a health food store at something like minimum wage. It was going to be temporary until he landed a higher paying blue collar industry kinda crane job — like the one he had in Louisiana before my pregnant self was like, ‘f this place I can’t do it!’

You know, some part of me doesn’t actually want to have to work at all. That part of me wants to be completely provided for, without having to lift a finger. I’m still trying to figure her out.

We soldiered through tough months, but we also got to work changing.

Changing our beliefs. Finding gratitude. Changing our thinking patterns. Opening our minds to new information and new ways of perceiving money (and life, really).

My income at the time? Was dependent on physical labor, and my body was tired from nursing a tiny human and being up all hours of the night.

I felt irresponsible. It hurt. All the times I would get to the grocery check out counter and ride the anxiety roller coaster, fearing that my card would be declined. Feeling the suspense as the little machine would roll the dice for me.

Approved, or declined.

What would we have to put back? The coconut oil?

Getting everything I needed wasn’t my reality. How could I possibly figure out how to get what I wanted? How could I possibly figure out how to live that free feeling life I saw in my mind, and that I saw others living?

Some women have to bring their babies to day care or to a baby sitter so they can go back to work. At that time in my life, with my first, I will own that I chose to scrape by so I could be home with my son.

It was a) be at home with him and scrape by, or b) find someone to ‘watch’ him aka raise him, while I worked.

I chose what I chose.

But I also promised myself that I would find a way. That I would create streams of income not dependent on my real-time efforts. That I would figure it out, and that I would take action every day, for as long as I needed to.

Life now? Eight weeks after my second daughter arrived here on planet earth? Five and a half years from the time I gave birth to my first?

I work from home — sometimes from the yard, or from the kitchen counter. I get to serve incredible women. I’ve built a business around my joy, love, and passion for writing.

I create money via products, programs, and services that excite me. I’ve made hundreds and thousands of dollars online (since the birth of my business — with a small readership/community), and I’m empowered when it comes to creating money with my soul nudges and ideas.

This time around, I was able to hire a postpartum doula to help me transition into life as a mother of two. I was able to REST so much more (I’m still kinda resting as I write this).

Is my life perfect? OMGOSH — no. I have plenty of challenges and lessons and areas in which I’m growing. I’m human. But I’m not sitting around waiting for a windfall anymore. I’m not wondering HOW to get there. I’m also not launching my products and services to crickets like I was in the beginning!

When I said, I would figure it out, I meant it. For me, figuring it out involved investing tens of thousands of dollars into mentorship and education — often when I didn’t actually have the money. But that’s a topic for another day…

The message here today isn’t about that, the message is that developing programs and products that you can sell, that aren’t dependent on your physical energy in real-time, can take you into a new dimension, and offer you a total paradigm shift.

This is what I want for every woman, in whatever way best serves her — that she can rest when she needs and wants to rest, that she can work (using her gifts) in ways that make sense for her as a partner, daughter, and mother.

That she can create, and live within, an environment that supports her cyclical nature.

Big Love,

P.S. Are you ready to create your own micro-Universe that supports your cyclical nature? Are you ready to have a program to sell that not only transforms lives, but also transforms the way you work + earn?!

It’s my birthday weekend, wooo! In celebration I decided to make the Vital Mother Program available for the next 3 days at it’s BEST PRICE EVER! Get all the details and get in on this goodness (including THE juiciest bonuses here): http://www.jillian-anderson.com/vitalmotherspecial

I’m on a MISSION to help women create lives that support their cyclical nature — a mission to help you do work + money differently.

The truth is that our culture doesn’t support women and mothers the way that it should. And instead of waiting for the system to change, I’d rather you DO WHAT YOU CAN NOW, WITH WHAT YOU’VE BEEN GIVEN.

If you know how you want to serve in the world, have been doing that work and are anchored into it, AND understand that designing your own products and programs is the KEY to you being able to work, rest, and live on your terms, the Vital Mother Program is for you.

Always Trying to 'Figure It All Out' and 'Strategize' Your Plan into Perfection Before You Take Action? Read This.

jillian-anderson-international-joshua-tree-p2p

At some point on your journey, when you’re OVER ALL THE PLANNING, and tired of the constant STRATEGIZING, you will decide (or redecide) to just let the mystery unfold.

And when you do, a sudden rush of vital life force energy will be yours as you stop the incessant quest to ‘figure it all out’ before you take action.

Surrendering to the mystery doesn’t mean you will stop moving forward, stop intending powerfully, or stop making your best plans, but it DOES mean you will have access to a deeper level of TRUST, and in accessing that TRUST, the following three things will occur:

  1. You will be 100x more RECEPTIVE. In letting go, and surrendering to your life’s wild path, you will naturally start looking for the golden thread, the signs, the opportunities, the connections — you know, all the magic. And just the act of focusing your energy and perception on THAT, will open you up to a deeper level of receptivity. Instead of looking at all the ways it might not work and all the ways you could fail or fall short, you’re literally winding down this path EYES WIDE OPEN for the goodness, the abundance, the direction, the support.

  2. You will have more consistent feelings of contentment and SATISFACTION. You know what the feeling of contentment brings, right? It brings MORE CONTENTMENT. It means more satisfaction. It means more of that, “wow, my life is GOOD and BEAUTIFUL and SATISFYING” kinda energy. You will have MORE contentment when you surrender to the mystery and magic of your life because you will no longer be wasting massive amounts of energy on the “how can I make X happen by Y date” mindset.

  3. Your life and your work will feel more FLUID. And that fluidity will serve your nervous system. Ever notice that when you’re trying too hard, that you’re not breathing fully and deeply? That your body feels more frazzled and your energy more frenetic? When you recommit to the mystery of your life unfolding naturally — organically — you LET THE HIGHEST GOOD UNFOLD, and your body and nervous system reflect that harmony, that fluidity, and that flow.

What do you say? Are you ready to recommit to the mystery? Ready to look for the magic, and the abundance of support, signs, and guidance that is available to you RIGHT NOW?

Big Love,

P.S. Are you ready to RECEIVE on a deeper level?

“PERMISSION TO PROSPER LITERALLY PAID FOR ITSELF WITHIN THE FIRST TWO WEEKS OF STARTING THE COURSE!”

“During Permission to Prosper I developed the confidence to charge prices for my services that are more in alignment with what I want, and it helped me launch a new type of juice cleansing program that I had been thinking about (but was afraid to promote because I was nervous that people would find it expensive). Not only have I introduced the program to my community, I have already raised the price!

In all honesty, Permission to Prosper literally paid for itself within the first two weeks of starting the course!  The value I received from the course is priceless... ALL of the components in the program have been such valuable keys to my healing process and the confidence I now feel.”

— Liz Forrest

Rich People Have Bookkeepers. Is This the Year You Start Outsourcing Your Books?

tulum vibe 9.jpg

Last year, in early 2018, I decided to finally hire a bookkeeper. Even though I was afraid of another additional monthly expense on top of what it cost to sustain and run my business, I knew it was TIME.

I knew that in order for me to grow as a business owner and entrepreneur that I needed to stay in my zone of genius and be the Creatrix. I needed to be focused on creating products and services aka making the money, while someone did the tracking for me.

Because let’s just be honest here: I was NOT staying on top of the bookkeeping.

rich-people-have-bookkeepers-jillian-anderson

It looked like this: every two-three months or so I’d go into quickbooks and pretend I knew what the hell I was doing. I’d even bring a bar of chocolate and light a candle to try and make it feel good, like they all told me I should. Chocolate or not, it was still painful and unenjoyable and it was taking me away from what I really needed to be focused on.

In one of his audio books, author of Rich Dad, Poor Dad, Robert Kiyosaki tells his readers that even when he was 400k + in debt, his ‘Rich Dad’ (his best friend’s father and one of his  mentors) told him to go out and hire a bookkeeper.

Why? Why, in the midst of his then painful financial reality would he be advised to do this? His rich dad simply said, “Rich people have bookkeepers.”

You know, I have zero idea how I found Bench Accounting, but I have to say: I LOVE their services. I LOVE just checking in with my monthly reports, and I love how easy they make everything. Their communication is excellent, and their system is SO easy to work with.

I no longer have to worry about getting it wrong, falling behind, or missing something important. I can focus on the business growth activities that feel natural, normal, and organic to me while knowing that it’s all being handled.

This year, they (Bench Accounting) handed me my year-end reports, with all the financial data I need, and all I have to do now is bring it over to my CPA. I actually need a new CPA right this moment so don’t think I’m 100% stress free, but I am in a FAR better position than I was last year.

Is this the year that you finally hire a bookkeeper for your side hustle, start-up, or heart-led business? Check out Bench here: http://refer.bench.co/Bs3Ln For real.

Full disclosure: the links provided in this blog post are my personal referral links. For each person I refer to Bench, I make cash-gains AND get a sweet discount on my Bench payment. How fun?

Big Love,
