Mommy + Nugget day out today. At this age, he is sooooo talkative, pretty much comments on everything. It’s hilarious and exhausting .
Noah on Getting Dressed: “Mommy, is that Mickey Mouse on your hat? Why is he on your hat? No Mommy, I don’t want to wear my Batman hat. I want to wear a straw hat like Mommy.”
Noah on Finding Parking: “Mommy, how come you’re not having parking karma? Mommy are you frustrated? Mommy I don’t know why you can’t find parking, I’m just the backseat driver.”
Noah on His Agenda: “Mommy are we going on adventure yet? Am I going to go jumping? Am I taking off my shoes to adventure time? Wait. I’m hungry. I need pizza. I need pizza now, Mommy!”
As said, hilarious + frustrating. But I wouldn’t change this epic conversation for anything. And, it makes me appreciate how his Daddy @jeep_monkey_slayathomedad has to have these conversations way more than me.
People who look like an overnight success usually take 4+ years to "make it."
If you focus on what you need to do, you'll make it there key words: “YOU need to do”.
And, here’s another tidbit. It’s choosing the SOMEthings not the EVERYthings that help you keep your #gameon. So, what do you need to do now?
Is it to create deeper relationships with like-minded people? ♀️
Is it to do that livestream you’ve been aching to talk about, but keep waiting for the “perfect time” to deliver your message?
Is it handling your big girl stuff you’ve been avoiding like taxes, setting up technology you don’t want to deal with, or having that touchy conversation that needs to be handled so you can move freely forward?
Is it you knowing like you know like you know: that you were born for something bigger, more expansive, more impactful than you’re living right now?
Facts (not cliche): Rome wasn’t built in a day. But it did become the empire of empires. Get started, brick by brick, and then you’ll step back and taste what “overnight success” feels like.
If you joined the game of entrepreneurship "to be your own boss", don't forget that you're also the janitor, salesman, creator and CEO
But don't let that get you down because you've got a passion that the world needs to see
Agree or #nah? And is the freedom on the other side of that work worth it to you? Very interested in your thoughts.
Everyone has self-doubt.
Everyone starts at zero.
Everyone has failed.
Everyone has faced challenges.
Everyone has stuff going on.
Everyone has their own worldview.
Everyone wishes things were more convenient.
Everyone avoids critical conversations now and then.
Some surround themselves with truthful, uplifting people.
Some invest their energy and time into high-value producing activities.
Some are willing to say the things that inspire others to make shifts that change their life.
Some go out of their own space of living and explore other ideas, mindsets and opinions to expand their worldview.
Some choose and harness their own inner will to live on purpose instead of on default.
Some are grateful for every moment, even the ones that felt gritty or painful.
Some take action and talk less about it and be more about it.
Be the SOME of all your parts. Because all of your parts are enough to have the life you truly desire. What will you do today to be SOME more of you?
I want to create from beautiful, vulnerable expression; from heart, guts and soul; from a place of zero fucks and 100% love.
I want to show people what living full out, while walking in fear and running towards their legacies, really looks like; by embodying that myself.
I want to trust myself more daily, forgive more easily, and cry even more frequently, whether in celebration or in despair.
I want to shout my values from the rooftops, pave a better path for our children, kick the patriarchy’s ass and protect our bodies, innovation and the earth.
I want to continue to create my own economy; not because I don’t appreciate the working person, but because I honor the effort required for all people who pursue their best passions and pleasures.
I want my pain to remind me of why I’m so lucky to live. And I want my lessons to tell stories that my kids will be proud to share. I want to be understood but not give a shit if I am or not.
Unapologetic autonomy. It’s what I live for everyday.
What are you living for? What do you want to create that’s aligned with that?
Are you being led with intention or being led with information?
Here’s what I know: life is going to hand you brown stuff - both chocolate and you know, - but it’s those with the resilience and knowing that “hey,
I’m built for what’s next”, that are CHOOSING POWERFULLY.
Not choosing by default, not choosing based on other people’s opinions, not choosing because “it’s what’s always been”. Your answers are inside, and should be cherished and held by yourself first, and then shared with others who support and Love on your vision.
What do you need in your life to choose powerfully? The answer is YOU. And a Posse that gets you. I have a few of my inner posse peeps that I share my hopes and dreams with. Do you have someone(s) in your life like that? Honor them by celebrating who they are!
You are a powerful, valuable human. Keep choosing you.
Although I’m the queen of many things, I’m proudly a #caffeine #queen and having fun coffee cups is part of my daily injection of fun and inspiration ... if you are doing the daily work to get your goals slayed, you must IGNORE THE PRICKS.so get your coffee or tea, stay focused, lead with your values and don’t forget why you’re doing the dang thing to begin with.
What’s your favorite way to stay focused?
My new favorite thumb ring from one of my new favorite jewelry brands @churchjewelry. Something you may not know about me: I love symbols. I collect symbols of hope, wisdom, inclusion and commitment. Both the symbol of the fish and the cross are plentiful on my walls as art and on my body as jewelry. I’ve been looking for a new rose gold ring to accompany my crown and yay, she’s here! I can’t wait for their cross rings to come back into stock so I can add that to my collection as well.
Do you wear and/or collect symbols?
Big hair, don’t care. Mainly caring about: these eyebrows need some major maintenance. Because a good hair day includes the brows. I have to thank my father for brows that will never be absent. They’re like an entire project on their own monthly. I’m so committed to my brow game that I drive 1.5 hours ROUNDTRIP to see my gal who’s been making them fierce for 11 years running now. It’s a major consideration every time we talk about moving away from Hawaii. “What will I do without Nalei @alazmama doing my brows?” Not even joking. I’ve tried others and they have jacked them up. #serious
What’s something you have to do monthly to keep up your game? Or you just love doing?
A hui hou Kona. You and your magic always heals all the parts of me needing tender loving care. I love the retreats I lead here with these fabulous, grown women leaders. Also, glad I got on the flight because they held me for my new crystals that came home with me (it’s almost becoming a TSA tradition for me). It’s a rock, dude. Next one: June! #Femmefluence
When you’ve achieved art as your life - aka designed it to fit your values, dreams and desires - it’s much easier to sleep during the chaos of daily living, see the gratitude in the small, irritating things, and feel every emotion as a gift instead of positive vs. negative.
No matter what you’re going through, keep going. Start your business. Go on that trip. Take a day off and get a spa day. Call a long lost friend and catch up. Wake up early and enjoy the sunrise.
Notice more the things you appreciate. Notice more what triggers you and have a conversation about it. Notice YOU, because you matter.

Build the Empire:
Dig for answers, ditch drama.
Focus on your game, forget the noise.
Learn to rest, not quit.
Hang out with people who are down for you.
Hustle until you earn the right not to.
You were born with grace. Remember.
Hire for your gaps, not your expertise.
Keep your mind right as a priority.
Laugh often, dance it out and sing loudly to keep yourself loose and flexible.
Build every day. At least one thing.
Remember why you’re doing it. Because you’ll need that the most during the hard times.
You’re worth the Empire you’re building.
Nourish the body that’s doing the building with good food and movement.
Thank you for building your empire. We need it. #cantstopwontstop
My daily political statement. Justice is one of my top values, so you’ll always hear my voice on a few special areas: racism, intersectional feminism (there really is no other kind), anti-bullying, high-integrity business practices and mother-effen application of COMMON SENSE. I got your back, people.
This weary warrior is on her way to Kona to be with the women of #CEOCircle. I’m really grateful to be on my way after a week melting in my bed, praying for mercy and then realizing: why am I trying to fix this on my own? My body told me: this is more than the flu. But I thought nah, I can handle, I will get better. I didn’t, I got worse. There are 12 less pounds on my body. And so I surrendered my willful ego and went to get medical care and guess what, they found something I could not help myself at home with. #duh The infection is ceasing but my body still needs massive rest. Even if my willful mind and passionate heart, knowing I want to be present and complete for the leaders flying here to paradise, didn’t want to disappoint anyone. Then I remembered: the best leaders prioritize leadership of self. And so it is: my medicine. #therealest See you in Kona #Femmefluence
I can be anything when I have my Wonder Woman mug full of fresh Kona brew. #tbt to just last Thursday when we broadcasted the Paid to Be You Workshop on these inter webs. I have an incentive for you if you join Master Brand before we close doors on 2/9...which is right around the corner so...in the words of my father: #whatareyouwaitingfor ?
Choose your tribe. Attract the best people to your business. Learn from one of the only program creators I know that’s been in this game for more than a minute (20 years). Choose you.
When you’re playing the Solitaire app in your bed because you’re still battling this flu (update: kidney infection), and you get your own ad presented to you; it’s still kinda surreal.
Anyhoo, it lit me up to see Lissa Michalak, who’s slayed every last biz goal she’s set for herself (with my encouragement to stretch further because, you know: we are so capable of so much more) after joining our campus just over a year ago. Now she has a posse of power players (they call themselves the GOATs) who are determined to get seen, heard and paid consistently and predictably.
My advice: be like Lissa. This tribes loves hard and has your back, is diverse and multi-passionate. Super rad and cash-making bonuses tossed in to supercharge your journey with us. But we start soon, so don’t miss out: www.MasterBrand.me
This flu makes you lonely. And I’m slightly peeved that I’m in the middle of my #MasterBrand Launch and pretty much have to take a sick day. But also I know it’s my job not to spread my germs and retain my energy so I can rise another day stronger. The best project you’ll ever work on is you.
Self-care Saturday, anyone?
This is reason 7,777,777 that I love my husband....I’ll find random notes like this all over the house. This one he slid under my office door knowing I’ve been pushing through a flu bug and still slayed our #MasterBrand digital workshop today. #goals #teamfamily

Hey new people, it’s Get-to-know-you Friday so HIIIII!!!! I’m a few things:
I’m a coffee freak. I actually prefer my brew hot, black and Kona. Except for Philz from San Francisco which my brother sends me only once a year on Christmas. #hint but when I do get a little dance it’s either #cappuccino properly made (if y’all people understand this you are already going to Be my BFF 4 Life) in a real cup. Otherwise I’m down for a Latte made by a pro barista. If it’s takeout, I always need a straw, even if it’s hot. I get asked all the time, you’re drinking hot coffee with a straw? yup. I’ve decided it tastes even more delicious that way. ...
Or I picked that up from college beer days...hmmm.
I’m 100% #aloha #gangster. I will smother you with love and be fiercely committed in my presence with you. And also leave you alone when you need quiet time and reflection. That’s how I friend and family play. All big #love.
What are some things that are remarkably you? I wanna know you better!
LOVED sharing how I left a job that paid me $250K/year to pursue a values-driven life ... #WayneDyer, being bullied when I was young, and how I run 3-7-figure companies from the middle of the Pacific Ocean. If you dream the impossible, I hope this episode shows you how people like you (me) can make it so. Let me know if you’re pursuing your passion below!

I recently re-modeled my home office to be that mix of glam/boheme/inspired/sacred space I wanted it to be. When you work from home 75% of the time, you want it to feel like you.
All my fave things: hexagons, values, badass buttons, unicorns, crystals, metallics, books and protein bars.
Got everything I need to hunker down (and take a nap under my desk like George Constanza if I wanted to). Even the bathroom has a little inspired swagger.
I can seriously think clearer in here now because it’s 100% on-brand for me. What’s in your office that you love?
Today we wrapped up the epic #brandstorychallenge. Every single time we do it, it just becomes more transformational - for all of us.
And in those 7 days I’ve heard players say:
“OMG ... I have to scream this, THANK YOU Jennifer Kem FOR BEING ONE OF THE PERSONS THE ALMIGHTY USED TO GET ME TO THIS POINT.” (her caps, not mine )
“I made my first public post today asking for 5 people who want to have a conversation with me...and I’ve been flooded with replies and DMs from people who are saying ‘Yes!’”
“I just want to stop in and say that this has been an amazing experience and it’s not over yet.”
... and one of my favorites...
“Getting roped in by friends to try the Brand Story Challenge is probably the craziest, yet most worthwhile thing I’ve done business-wise.”
