“Fear he is a liar He will take your breath Stop you in your steps”- Zach Williams One of my favorites playing in the background 🎶 while I have coffee in one hand and my Valor EO in the other! 💪I’m learning more about the confidence I need to slay these days. I’ve learned through prayer and embracing the truth of myself that I crumple when I feel it’ll cause ripples in relationships. I’m a peacemaker (#enneagram9). Avoidance stubbornly creeps in, and I start believing I can just bow out and the conflict will resolve itself in time. When in reality, with most, it just makes it worse and solves nothing. So if you ever notice my lack of presence on social media... check on me! 🤣😜 jk. And check my stories right now for something that took HUGE confidence to finally put together and put out there (because the peacemaker in me doesn’t want people rolling their eyes at me. 😬😆🙈). So thankful for the love I’ve received on my journey thus far! It means so much. I’m always here for you!!! As much as you need me to be!

Do things that set your soul on fire 🔥 The Miss Earth 2019 delegates and I enjoyed an amazing weekend in the paradise that is #misibisbay. We also held a gala dinner to raise funds for the construction of Brgy. Misibis' water supply system which will provide clean water for 300 families. ❤️ With a background in the health and fitness industry, I am very passionate about improving access to clean water, partnered with educating the youth on sanitation. Water is life and sanitation is dignity. What's life without dignity? Salamat na marhay @MisibisBay and @MissEarth for this breathtaking experience. #missearth2019#meandmytree#beautiesforacause#mesmerizingmisibis#missphilippinesfire2019
:: every time I make an item, the very last thing that I do is add a label. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ it’s the best feeling, because it means the item is ready, and the label is the finishing touch. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ unlike a traditional “tag”, this label goes on the outside. as it should! these real wood tags are super legit, and have the #salemstyle logo laser engraved. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ that label is how you know that your new cozy item was made with love and care, and is the best quality. 🖤
Flexibility was the first thing that brought us to coworking, but we've stayed for so many other reasons that we often forget how wonderful the flexibility truly is. Have you given our space a try yet? We'd love to show you around!
The "essence of our family." Wow.⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ I am trying to think of what the essence of my own family is... Worshipful, Curious, Active. These definitely come to mind when thinking through the Jones family. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ I'd love to hear the "essence" of YOUR family. Would you take a few seconds and tell me below?
Stop hiding behind your copy/paste/edit strategy. I know you’ve done it. You admire “her;” the woman absolutely crushing it in your industry and “getting all the good clients.” So you copy/paste/edit her content, her website copy, her social media post structure and lemme guess... it doesn’t work for you? Copy is a 24/7 salesperson for your business. By copying HER you’re only helping her sales team because it damn sure isn’t helping yours. You’ve just invited the competition to market to your audience. Give your dreamiest client a name, start with a BLANK page, and write for THAT client. Write TO that person. Be a human. Just talk. In fact, open up your voice memos and ACTUALLY talk. Transcribe it. Be unapologetically you. Retire your copy/paste/edit strategy. Or... just click the link in my bio and I’ll do it for you. 🤷🏻♀️
Sometimes us designers fall just as in love with concepts that don’t get approved as those that do. Here’s a portion of a recent logo concept that didn’t make the cut. Wouldn’t it be lovely to browse the libraries of rejected designs? Or maybe I’m just a little bit weird like that 😜
Just recently, someone asked me, "Dondrea, what keeps you motivated in business." • I’d like to say it’s our family. Or, it’s the legacy my husband and I feel like we’re called to leave here on this Earth. • But, for real, some days (scratch that) MOST days I do this for ME! Because I WANT to and because I LOVE the people I work for and with. • Plus, I like challenges. 🤓 What’s your motivation? • 📸: @sarahecothran

How do you balance scaling 3 businesses while still having time for travel, rest AND a social life? Here's the thing, it's all about time (and energy) management and I'm not new to the game. Let me paint you a picture. My senior year of college, I was traveling 2 days a week to NYC interning at Vera Wang while also writing a thesis, taking 4 classes, leading a dance team (with daily practice) and applying for jobs... while also living the typical senior year life. Time management comes down to 3 main things. 1. Be aware of how you ACTUALLY spending your time. Just because you're in front of a computer doesn't mean that you're actually being productive. Do you know how long different tasks take you? When do you have the most mental clarity? What impacts your focus and can make a task that normally takes 30 minutes last an hour. 2. Be in control of your days. When you have various responsibilities, it's easy to have your days feel like you're running around without actually accomplishing anything. If you feel that way, it's probably true. Make "you time" or "deep work time" a priority on the calendar just like you would a meeting or lunch date. Block it off first and everything else can wait. 3. Be clear on your vision. If you don't know where you want to go (in business or in life), then you'll be spending your time doing things that you THINK are important vs. what actually matters. The more time and energy that you spend on "game-changing" actions or decisions, the quicker and further you'll go. Lastly, remember it's a learning process. It's all about trial and error of trying different systems and seeing what works for you. My weekly newsletter is making a comeback where I'll be equipping you with the clarity, confidence and strategy you're missing to tackle your next life-changing goal.

“Whatever the problem, be part of the solution. Don’t just sit around raising questions and pointing out obstacles.” — Tina Fey There's always a solution if you get curious and ask why or how. Look around different corners. Try new things. Write in different voices. Visit new places. I love writing for my clients because they come to me for a solution. They're willing to take a look at what's working and what isn't, try new things, and let me do what I do best. (PS: Wondering what solutions we could come up with together?

I'm on a mission to reinvent the way I schedule my days...AGAIN.⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ I've already set up my schedule to work on specific things on specific days. Now I'm dropping every last detail of my to-dos into my calendar on a daily basis.⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ I'm doing it while sitting in the hospital waiting for my dad's heart cath to be done — it's about all I can focus on while I wait.⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ I used to think that scheduling every moment of every day would feel like chains on my life. But the more I schedule, the more I accomplish, and the more free I feel.⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ It's amazing, and I totally recommend it.⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ I'll try to remember to share it in stories when I'm done so you can see exactly how far I'm taking this. It's going to be amazeballs 😂
It’s not often I’m too tired to write a thoughtful story in this space, but friends, today is THAT day.⠀ ⠀ After a full weekend of chasing my energetic nephews around, eating sugary (and damn delicious) one year-old birthday cupcakes, driving my Jeep across the state, fueling up on cheap gas station coffee, carving pumpkins, keeping a restless puppy from terrorizing the house on a Monday where it rained all. day....this woman is SPENT (with a full heart but a tired body and mind.)⠀ ⠀ But, the thing is, I’m way too excited about the direction this project is taking to not share it with you so here it is: tired, no story, sugar detoxing and all, reminding you that showing up as you are is always allowed. (And also that the day you discover a 30 year-old body doesn’t recover quite as fast as a 29 year-old one did is a day you’re never quite prepared for. Now, off to find all the water and all the naps.) ⠀ ⠀ Do you feel me? Hop below and give me all your cures for getting back on track after a long weekend, trip, or just feeling off week!
Hi, I’m Allie 👋🏼, and I actually like serving clientfriends.⠀ ⠀ Kind of insane these days, right? 🤯⠀ ⠀ This “online business world” can easily lead you to believe that working one on one with other big hearted, dream chasing, brave and fun human beings is a “time and money suck,” that the only way to scale and grow your business happily is by creating a digital program of whatever sorts that takes the humanness out of it.⠀ ⠀ But I’m saying BS. And I’m waving my freak flag high from the tallest building in the city and telling you right now that I LIKE working one on one with my peeps.⠀ ⠀ Maybe it’s because they’re all a group of incredibly kind, huge hearted game changers. Maybe it’s because I believe in really walking alongside each other, in creating a true partnership and in providing a service that serves more than just my own bank account, in providing a personalized service that takes the pressure and the stress and the “I have to do it all on my own-ness” off of their shoulders. Because the value in THAT? It’s priceless.⠀ ⠀ If you’re feeling like you “have” to create some “passive” program as the ONLY way to have the business you dream of, here’s your sign and reminder that the only “right” way to have the business you envision is by creating and living in YOUR vision, not the one everyone else is trying to sell you.⠀ ⠀ Keep on running towards the people if they’re what sets your biz heart on fire. Ain’t nobody the boss of you but yourself, so listen to your boss. 👊🏼⠀ ⠀ And if YOU want to work with us 1on1, we’ll be opening enrollment for the winter (!) season of Bespoke Content Club in a few weeks (you can join the waitlist at the link in my profile or just send me a DM if you’re too lazy... I really do get it 😜).⠀ ⠀ Carry on, people. Whatever direction you wanna go in. 🍂⠀ ⠀ 📷 by my girl @aptbphoto, another 1on1 loving lady serving it up big.
Business Tip: BUSINESS BLUEPRINT⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⇒ FACT: The beginning of your house probably started with a blueprint. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⇒ A house blueprint shows exactly what to build (dimensions), what skill (people) are needed and the sequence of work.⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⇒ The blueprint helps you create the thing that you are trying to build in this case, your business. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⇒ It all begins with your VISION. No vision means no direction, no roadmap. A vision provides your desired end state⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ When was the last time you reviewed or made changes to your business blueprint?⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ #weeklybiztip
Right now, whatever you’re facing might seem like a graft, but 12 months from now you will thank yourself for taking the leap and making a start, regardless of what the obstacles and challenges are subjective to you. We create to elevate. 💛

I go to therapy. There, I said it. Not all the time. But, sometimes. The amount that’s necessary for me to be my best self (this actually includes a whole lotta Jesus and less of me, but therapy helps me work that out, too). I wear my heart on my sleeve, so it may not actually surprise you. But, I know there are LOTS of other women out there feeling embarrassed or ashamed that they go to counseling or that they really believe it’s time to make that first appointment but fear is stopping them. And my friend @wynneelder and I are hear to say... Let’s normalize counseling! You down with that? No more shame. No more feeling embarrassed or less than or stupid or more broken than the next girl. Let’s be honest with ourselves and real with each other. Start by listening to We Are Free, Episode 006 (Let’s Normalize Counseling). Link in bio. After listening, if you’re feeling brave and free, let me know in the comments below what you thought of my chat with Wynne and/or how counseling has set you free, too 💛
“I love you not only for what you are, but for what I am when I am with you. I love you not only for what you have made of yourself, but for what you are making of me. I love you for the part of me that you bring out.” ✨ —Elizabeth Barrett Browning
“You are pacific sea love...hanging stories of the lovers who couldn’t survive your seas around your neck like dripping jewellery.” —@thebrookesolis⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Lately I’ve just been collecting these moments of inspiration. There are SO many things I want to do and create! While there is beauty to be seen in that sort of movement, sometimes I feel like I need someone to grab my wrist and tell me to be still. To encourage me to be present in the moment and not dwell on the past or worry about the future. Can anyone else relate? Tag someone who is great at helping you just be in the moment and commit to scheduling some quality time with them— trust me, it’ll be a smart investment✨⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ 📸: @brancoprata
