If I Could Turn Back Time, Here’s What I Would Tell Myself

Ever wished you could hop in a time machine, zip back to your younger days, and drop some truth bombs on yourself? Well, grab your imaginary flux capacitor because we’re going on a ride! This list isn’t just me talking to past me—it’s a collection of the coolest, funniest, and most facepalm-worthy advice I’ve managed to gather. These are the tips and tricks that would have saved me from a few scrapes (and embarrassing moments!) along the way. Ready to dive into the good, the bad, and the “what was I thinking?!” Here’s what I’d tell my younger, wilder, and definitely not wiser self.

So, here we go. 🙂

  1. You were born to be YOU! Don’t try to copy other people’s success. Instead, own your unique brilliance and learn to adapt other people’s success principles to your flawsome style.
  2. Do not try to build your business alone. Unite with other like-minded people to accomplish greater things faster and with less effort.
  3. Never do yourself what you can pay others to do cheaper. Determine your buyback rate so you can spend your time wisely. Pay someone $75hr to detail my car or earn $500hr to work with clients. It makes NO sense to detail my car. I’d rather hustle, sell, serve, and have fun.
  4. Don’t be afraid to become the hero of your own story. It’s completely okay to humbly share pieces of yourself through stories of success and even failures.
  5. Never apologize unless you’re actually wrong. Arrived late? Thank them for their patience and acknowledge their grace. Don’t steal more of their time with negative apologies and weak excuses.
  6. Don’t wait for results to drop in your lap, and don’t guess your way through it. Find experts who’ve already done what you want to do and pay them to help you get expedited results.
  7. Ask powerful questions and listen. You demonstrate your wisdom by the questions you ask and how you listen, not what you say and how you say it.
  8. Do not confuse knowing what you want to create with knowing how to create it. Never start promising results until you have a proven track record of achieving them.
  9. Never discount! It devalues what you do and teaches people that you’re not worthy of high prices. It also sabotages their ability to think and live abundantly.
  10. Never think for one minute that you can’t have a high income and a successful future regardless of your past. A successful life has already been promised to you and is waiting for you to own it powerfully.
  11. Stop trying to help everyone with your self-righteous ability to be a “Jack of all Trades.” Instead, be more effective, help more people, and make more money by becoming a “Master of One”.
  12. Give yourself permission to be politely confrontational. Challenge everything, ask probing questions, and always remain self-aware of your own bullsh*t.
  13. Learn to love sales! Selling is a pain if you focus on what you want instead of how you’re able to help other people get what “they” want. That simple shift will make selling easy, fun, and all about service.
  14. Save the one-on-one support for your high-level clients. Shift your business model to create group programs and courses so that you can maximize your time, expand your reach, and increase your profits.
  15. “F*ck you, watch me!” No, seriously, that’s the advice! My ex always told me I was fat, lazy, and stupid, and if I kept believing that, I probably would be.
  16. Above all, when God provides you with the right people, resources, wisdom, and opportunities, PAY ATTENTION!

Keep being FLAWESOME!!! 💥🌺 💃✨
