Girlfriend with Ambition Wanted!

Self ImprovementRenee DickComment

You have this amazing idea that you want to start your new business, launch a blog, start a side hustle, create a youtube channel, you are so excited to start that you finally go for it and realize you know absolutely nothing and you have no clue who to talk to about it. Oooh Girlfriend get comfy and let’s chat.

I always knew in the back of my mind I wanted to start a blog. I had my husband telling me to do it, but you know how it is when you have your spouse cheering you on you kinda don’t believe them because they love you and have to support you, and come on, if I’m being honest he totally thinks I’m like the best thing on the planet. You know that feeling right? It wasn’t until I surrounded myself with other people that were in the same boat as me. Women that were already business owners and ones that were just starting to open one. They shared the same struggles, the same mindset, and the same end goal. It was like every single one of us although completely different had the same problem… feeling alone and like they had no one to talk to. My mind was opened to this whole new level of goal setting, it made me really think about how much surrounding yourself with people that force you to level up is crucial to your success. I would not have been able to accomplish what I have if it was’t for women like the ones mentioned above setting higher expectations for me.

The more people I come across, the more stories I hear about women feeling like I did when I first started. Alone, scared, overwhelmed, and in desperate need of a friend. Just someone to bounce ideas off, to chat when you question yourself, someone to give you advice or honest feedback, heck to even tell you to suck it up and stop being a little bitch. We all need a person that will give you that safe place to go when you need it most.

Do you feel like I am talking to you? I have a feeling a lot of you are nodding your head right about now. I know it’s hard to make that leap, why not make it easier? Find a mentor, confidence coach, or girlfriend that can help you through it, that will push you out of your comfort zone, that will make showing up a lot less lonely. If you don’t have that person, look no further, I am always here to be that person for you. Do not hesitate to reach out to your girlfriend Renee! I am right here with you putting in the work.

Joining an Accountability Group?

Self ImprovementRenee DickComment

I remember the first accountability group I ever joined, it was back when I was doing my Beach body workout DVD’s. My coach started it as a way for us all to check in with each other. I really liked it, it does exactly what the name says “accountability group”. It actually made me kind of competitive because at the end there was a prize for the person that posted the most.

I ended up losing because I got lazy. It freaking sucked that I lost. It gets me thinking… what if my coach would’ve called me on my shit as soon as I stopped posting? What if she sent me a personalized message that reminded me why I joined in the first place? I can tell you I think it would’ve changed my mind really quick.

I had zero intentions of hosting an accountability group. I was struggling to get back into my routine after vacations and spring break so I posted on my Instagram stories “ looking for an accountability partner” and didn’t think to much about it. Then the messages started coming in, me, me, I want to, I need one too!

Holy shit what is happening? Let me start a group so I can add all of these awesome ladies to it and we can all hold each other accountable. The messages didn’t stop. Eventually I had 30 women that joined my Facebook group. Did that just happen? Were these ladies really here for this all because I posted that one story? You bet your ass they were. And it was freaking amazing.

The first day I could start to see most people weren’t active, they weren’t involved. It took me back to that first group I joined. I remembered that feeling when I knew I slacked off and lost the contest. I really believe if my coach would’ve called me on my shit I probably would have not slacked off and actually finished the challenge. So that’s exactly what I did. I went LIVE in the group and called every single one of them out. Sent each one a personal video of me telling them to show up and participate.

To be completely honest I got a little scared that I was going to piss some people off, but it was the opposite. Everyone loved it. It was that exact push that we all join accountability groups for. Now the group feels like I’m working out with a bunch of my girlfriends, we lift each other up, we comment when someone posts and we cheer them on for doing the work. So yes, accountability groups are amazing, just make sure you have a leader in yours that isn’t afraid to call you on your shit. Cough, Cough that’s me, your girlfriend Renee!
