What’s The Feeling You’re Chasing?

What’s The Feeling You’re Chasing?

You guys have been around the block a few times so I know I don’t need to explain to you that the “thing” you want isn’t really about the thing right? You know that what you REALLY want is what the thing represents. We know that we don’t want to achieve financial wealth simply to have lot’s of paper (or plastic) stuff sitting in a bank somewhere. Or the perfect body so we can sit around looking at our abs all day Or the most successful business ever simply for the sake of success. For each of us the “feelings” we want to experience based on our achievements is different. We want to feel things like accomplishment, pride, joy, happiness and security just for starters. It’s the same deal when it comes to us personally. We want to excel at our work because we feel confident as an example. And we also avoid certain things because of feelings we DON’T want. We don’t want to miss deadlines because we don’t want to feel stressed or disappointed in ourselves. We want to stay on top of our work because we don’t want to feel overwhelmed. Etc etc etc Pretty much everything we do or don’t do in our lives is to either generate or avoid a feeling. You may have heard me mention this week that I’ve adopted a new mantra. EASE – ELEGANCE – EFFICIENCY. These 3 words, these 3 FEELINGS now guide my days. Ease is all about taking my time with things, no rushing or trying to take on too many tasks at once. Elegance is such...
Habits That Support Success

Habits That Support Success

Here in LA we’ve been super busy including a bunch of travelling between cities and running our events. I’ve felt a weird mixture of being well inside my comfort zone, and at times, out of my depth and it’s in times like this that the daily habits we create to support our success journey pay dividends. My daily practice of coffee and journaling, followed by a gym session is all I need to ground myself and be reminded of who I am, what I stand for, what’s important to me, where I’m headed and why I want it. In times of growth and expansion, it’s easy to lose yourself or get caught up in things that don’t really matter in the grand scheme of things. I adore travel and it’s a big part of who I am but I also love being home and thriving under the routine I have back there. I never feel homesick but at times I do yearn for being able to prep my own food, train in my regular gym, go to my favourite cafes, walk along my beach and work from my own office. Journaling brings me back to the moment and I’m able to remind myself just how freaking AMAZING this very moment is. Today we have a photoshoot with Caroline White (http://www.carolinewhitephotography.com/business-coaches/) who has photographed Marie Forleo and Carrie Green just to name a few. To be honest the last few days I’ve really been taking this for granted and have had a bit of a “can’t be bothered” attitude to this photoshoot (!!), I think all of the running around...
Time to Reveal The Next HUGE Step in My Business

Time to Reveal The Next HUGE Step in My Business

Good morning lovelies…time for an update You may have noticed that my livestreaming and blogging is down a smidge (or a lot!!) but fear not, all is well. In fact BETTER than well!! If you’ve been in my community for a while you’ll know that I advocate focusing on one single thing at a time….it get’s you there faster and the end result is better….that’s my thang. Given that this is my thing I’ve been hustling my little butski off taking care of my pretty big, hairy, scary goal of stepping up and into the next phase of my business which is speaking events. Pulling together 4 events of this scale across 2 countries has been so bloody EXCITING and the learning curve nice and step…just the way I like it Over the past month or so I’ve been liaising with event venues and negotiating like a boss to ensure we not only make an impact but also a super healthy profit. As you can imagine there are many moving parts when you undertake a venture like this. Then there is the addition of navigating a working relationship with my partner in crime AND another with our event super geniuses (these guys fill events for the great man Tony Robbins, Brendan Burchard, Harv Eker & Dr John Demartini). Not being 100% in control of the whole shebang 100% of the time has, at times, been way outside my comfort zone. But…the overall experience has been one of major growth and expansion and when I’m growing I’m as happy as a pig in mud. So my focus as been on...
Are You a Monday Lover or a Monday Hater?

Are You a Monday Lover or a Monday Hater?

Have you noticed there are two types of people on your newsfeed on Monday Mornings? One lot are as happy as pigs in mud and excited about the week. The other lot post comments like “god I hate Monday’s”. If you’re on a mission to build your empire and create a kickass life you love be very careful you who you choose to spend your time with…Monday mornings are always a nice little indicator of who I need to cull from my page. It might seem like a small thing but it’s really a BIG thing. I guarantee that the people whining about Monday mornings will be whining about many other things too….it’s an attitude. Just like being ready to embrace the week excited about what you can make happen is also an attitude. These are the people you want to align with. And you CHOOSE your attitude…it doesn’t just happen to you. Life is one bigass choice…don’t like Mondays? Then figure out what the hell you need to do to change them and I promise that whining about how dreadful your week is about to be is NOT the way to create change from the situation YOU created. A big high five to all of my peeps looking to kick some ass this week….you’re more special than you might think. Michelle xoxo Just a quick reminder… My brand spanking new ¬†member site will be going live in March, so be sure to get on the list and be the first to know when it’s launched. You definitely don’t want to miss my $67.00 p/m launch price! https://michellehext.leadpages.co/membership-launch/...
A Sneak Peek Into My Brand New Book!

A Sneak Peek Into My Brand New Book!

Okey Dokey….drum roll……here is the first part of the intro of my 4th book. Working title is likely to change but for now is…. “Put Yourself In The Entrepreneurial Game: Write the book, Launch the program, Take the Stage” *Note, there are likely to be typo’s etc but hasn’t been proof read yet so know these will be fixed up in the edit* *********************************************************************** Can we get the awkward conversation out of the way straight out the gate, the one where I ask you how much money you’ve made this year, the one where I ask you if you have an actual BUSINESS or just a very expensive hobby? If we’re going to be hanging together for the duration of this book all I ask is that you commit to getting real with yourself and owning your crap, the crap that’s kept you under-earning and and feeling like a loser for probably way too long. If you’ve picked up this book it’s because you have a desire to reach greater heights AND because you’ve been not been following through on all the big stuff, the writing of the book stuff, the launching your dream program stuff, the launching yourself as a speaker stuff…..amongst other things. Your desire for success is big, but your fear is bigger. Fear of putting yourself out there, fear of failing, fear of what aunty Mable will think, fear of not being good enough, fear of humiliating yourself on an epic scale, the fear of being “found out”. Well I’m hear to tell you that if you continue to let fear rule you, this shitty...
How to stop being an entrepreneur on the weekends

How to stop being an entrepreneur on the weekends

Weekends used to make me anxious. VERY anxious! During the week life had purpose, building my empire, training hard, taking care of my kids and running them around to after school activities, teaching classes. The weeks were a flurry of activity and it felt good. Busy was good. The weekends…not so good. I was waging this constant battle with myself that went something like this. You are NOT going to work on the weekends, that is just too pathetic. But I don’t what else to DO with my time!! I don’t care, find something, ANYTHING because you are NOT working on the weekend. But I can’t think of a single thing to do!! Ok, I’ll hit the gym…AGAIN….my default. It was ridiculous and pretty pathetic but I honestly had zero idea about what to do with myself when I wasn’t working, taking care of my kids or in the gym. It was a very one dimensional life. But I didn’t give up seeking a life outside of my business because I knew I had to. I was becoming boring. I was becoming bored. And I knew it wasn’t healthy to work every waking hour. I began a list of things I could be interested in doing. It was hard going, my creative juices were NOT flowing…at all!! I lived in the Dandenong’s which, to be honest I loathed, I’m a beach girl and I was land locked from every side. But I decided I’d start to explore the area around me. My then husband and I were living very separate lives (which is obviously why I was in this...
