June 2022 Life + Biz Review

Welcome to the June 2022 Life + Biz Review! It’s time for a monthly update! I’ve been holding steady on the daily accountability posts in the Den Community to share what I do every day to help me get closer to my goals.

What am I doing in this life?

I am back into running and currently do one day of running, one day of kettlebell alternating them with one day of rest. It feels amazing to be on the trails again and not have lost much stamina in the process when I was recovering from plantar fasciitis a few weeks ago. I also follow a bit more of a low-carb nutrition plan because one of the things I discovered is that potatoes, pasta, rice, and break make me tired and sluggish and I am done sleeping my afternoons away.

New officeI have updated and upgraded my office/studio furniture as you can see above. I have another shelf behind me that has different size compartments to hold all of the finished creations that I may not take to an event to sell but are available on my website.

The Rebel Shine Summit was a success! I’ve added 250 people to my email list putting me just over 1400.  I did a bit of an overhaul on some of my goals I’ll share below! The next event I am hosting is the Love your Life Summit – and I am looking for experts! Interested? Check it out here! 

The highlight in June was that my youngest has officially graduated high school! If you don’t know his story, it’s really a big milestone as he was born with a rare genetic disorder that’s potentially fatal, had three liver transplants before finishing middle school as well has is autistic. He’s earned every bit of celebration and showing of hoorah for reaching this milestone when at times we didn’t know if we’d ever even get here.

Art events are over for June, I am currently focusing on Christmas in July event which should really be a good time. I have a few things on my craft table that need finishing.
