The Hard Stuff with Michelle Knight on the Free to Be Podcast including how to deal with grief, goal setting for 2019, top tips for business, top tips for life, perfectionism and lessons learned | Michelle Knight

In today’s episode, I’m sharing The Hard Stuff from 2018. As we prepare for the year ahead it’s important to me that I’m fully transparent with you in the hopes it will help you in feeling seen, heard and understood.

2018 was a very difficult year, but it’s taught me some of the most important lessons that I will carry with me in the year ahead. It is my personal hope that 2019 brings more transparency in branding through the power of storytelling, and I’m starting right here with this episode.


Things I talk about in this episode:

↠ How my year started and the role it played in my business.
↠ Dealing with grief as an entrepreneur, mother, wife and woman.
↠ How my perfectionism challenged me in 2018 with the hiring of team and expanding my brand.
↠ One of the biggest mistakes I made in my business.
↠ My top tips for consistently growing in life and business.
↠ Removing the shame and guilt we feel as women.
↠ The single biggest lesson that keeps smacking me in the face.
↠ My goal for this brand in 2019!

What I Know For Sure
what i know for sure - branding and freedom success coaching

On Monday, September 12 I will be turning 29. It isn’t a big birthday in the grand scheme of things, but I will be entering the last year of my 20’s which is pretty crazy! To say I’m excited for this next year, is a complete understatement. At the end of this month I am leaving my 9 to 5 to pursue my business full time. This is an exciting transition for myself and my family and I am on the brink of changing our lives and the lives of others.

My goal is to make a global impact in this world, by empowering women to share their story with the world through their brand. In my mind there is no better storyteller or promoter of stories than Oprah. This week I’ve been drawn to listening to her book, “What I Know for Sure.” If you haven’t read or listened before, I highly recommend taking time to do so.

Her book inspired me to think about my own life and where I am as I enter into this new phase, so I’ve complied my own list of What I Know For Sure thanks to Lady O.

What I Know For Sure...

I know for sure that spending time with family is the best feeling in the world. Whether it be sitting on the couch watching Netflix or playing washers in my parent’s backyard, nothing fills my soul like family time.

I know for sure that traveling is one of the greatest joys. It opens your eyes to the beauty of this world and to the acceptance of others. It takes you out of your comfort zone and puts you in situations that require you to problem solve. As an added bonus you get really good at staying calm when you get lost.

I know for sure that having a garden that you get to nurture and grow and then eventually benefit from in the most delicious way never gets old.

I know for sure I’m meant for so much in this world and that just going with the flow has never been enough.

I know for sure Italy will always have my heart. The amazing food and wine, strolling down the streets after a late and long dinner, to just walking through the cities will always be my favorite memory.

I know for sure an evening talking and laughing with a good bottle of wine is the best way to spend time with someone you love.

I know for sure compassion, above all else, is the best, most attractive trait a person can possess. Not to mention it makes the world a better place to live.

I know for sure a soy no water chai from Starbucks is the best drink to enjoy when I need to get shit done.

I know for sure everyone has a story to tell and I was put on this earth to empower them to tell it.  Join my 5-Day Challenge to Own Your Story >>

I know for sure feeling water rush over my body, as if I’m standing alone under a waterfall, is the most relaxing and meditative feeling in the world.

I know for sure walking barefoot outside helps me feel grounded and connected to this earth in a way nothing else does.

I know for sure that there is no greater feeling than love and once you truly feel love for yourself and the love for and of another you can accomplish anything.

I know for sure that everything we encounter is a choice and it is a choice we have the power to make.

I know for sure my body is a vessel and I must take care of it in order for it to carry me through this life.

I know for sure there are no better colors than the colors of fall.

I know for sure I’ve never felt stronger than when I take time to get on my mat. Yoga makes me feel strong inside and out and as if I can take on the world.

I know for sure love that supports you, lifts you and pushes you to be your best self is the truest of love and I have just that.

I know for sure giving birth changed me forever. Not only did I bring into this world a beautiful life, that I can nurture, inspire and learn from, but knowing that I did it, through perseverance and pain, is my greatest accomplishment to date.

I know for sure that I am worthy of everything I desire.

BE MERRY!

Michelle Knight

 

P.S. If you know for sure that you are meant for more in this world, that you are destined for a life of freedom and you have a story to tell this world, but aren't sure how to go about it, I'd love to chat about how I can help make your life of freedom a reality. schedule a call >>
