"The normalization of feeling suffering because all the people around you are feeling it too doesn't mean that you're supposed to just live in it and drown in it. It's like a frog, boiling in a pot of water, right? Like you're slowly raising the temperature higher and higher and the frog boils. Your anxiety is getting worse because it's been normalized so you don't think you need to do anything because it's normal to feel anxious, but if you're not treating the symptom, it's going to get worse.

"I had to actually ask myself better questions and kind of unlearn things. And I wonder if it would be helpful to you as you go through the next three months to ask, okay, what can I do? I'm going to stop focusing on all the things I can't do or all the things that aren't working. I am only going to focus on what I can control. That's powerful as hell. If you want to make some crazy ass traction in your life, y'all, just do things that you can do and that you can control. This helps with anxiety. This helps with productivity. This helps with traction. It's so powerful to just go, okay, yeah, but what resources do I have? Hi, I'm Rachel Hollis, and this is my podcast.

Whatever it is, my guess are into, I want to unpack it so that we can all understand. These are conversations. This is information for the curious. This is the Rachel Hollis podcast. Hello. It's right here. This is the Rachel Hollis podcast. I'll be your host, your friend, your sister, your confidant, your advice columnist. I'll basically be anything you need me to be accept your mom, because I already have four kids, and there are a lot of work. We're going to talk about some really important stuff today. We're going to dive deep into some tactics that I think can be really helpful in getting you to make massive traction in the next three months. That's what I want to talk about. How do we in whatever capacity you are working in your life, whether that is personal, professional, you want to get out of debt, you want to get your grades up at school, you want to improve your relationship. You want to attract more abundance and more wealth into your life where you want to start, you know, getting out of a bad mindset, whatever it is, what if you could do things today that would drastically change the amount of traction you make. What if you could be in a completely different place three months from today than you are right now? What if you could be in such a better place so much better off doing so great in three months? And I'm just going to let you know right now because as I'm saying these things, it kind of sounds like I'm about to sell you a used car. I don't have anything to sell you. So I always just feel like it's important because I am such a nerd. I love podcasts and I love YouTube videos and I watch them so much and I learn from teachers all over the world and I'm so grateful, but man, is there anything more frustrating than when you go to watch? A YouTube video that you think is going to teach you something and really they just do this whole build up to like and if you buy this thing then blah blah blah then you'll have the answers. So I'm not going to sell you anything. That's what I want you to know right now. I don't have anything to sell you. I'm just going to give you a bunch of ideas. And the reason I'm sort of putting it in those terms like, wow, three months from today, your life could be totally different, is because it's not a maybe. It's not a question. It's not could my life, it's a 100%. Your life could be totally different next week. In a single moment, you could snap your fingers, you could make a change that drastically affects you for the rest of your life. We've all experienced some version of this, right? Like we've all had those moments where, from one moment to the next, something shifted inside you and it was like a catalyst for drastic change. Sometimes good change, sometimes not so good change, but either way, you can make big leaps and bounds if you're conscious. And if you're actively working. So we are I'm recording this episode for you in the beginning of April. And I love this conversation right now because we've just finished the first quarter of the year. So in business, I've been an entrepreneur for 20 years. And in business, you're taught to look at your business, your revenue, your P and L, your balance sheet. You're taught to look at all of that. Quarterly. So if we look at the entire year, it can be overwhelming, but if we just break it down into parts, like anything else, it's so much easier to take on. And as a business owner, you're looking at things quarterly, not just observe and, you know, oh, okay, so this is how we're doing. You're looking at things quarterly because you're wanting to make adjustments and changes. If you're a new business owner like I was back in the day, you might not look into how the business is doing until you get to the end of the year. Oftentimes, business owners were so.

"And I was like, oh my God, and I vowed to him. I will lose weight. And that was the last diet I ever went on. And I started it, and it was started the diet and it was kind of very lackluster, but also filled with shame. Because I tried everything to be thin, you know? And now the deep shame of my partner confessing to me that he is so, you know, what I heard is he's so repulsed by my body. You know, that's what I heard. He said, I'm less attracted to you, but I turned that into all sorts of things. And it was around then that I discovered the message that you can be fat and healthy, that diets don't work. And I shared this with my partner at the time and he wasn't that interested. But anyway, that was the beginning of me. It changed my life. When I found those messages, I was like, holy shit. What do you mean? Why? Why have been going dieting more in my life? Why is no one told me this stuff doesn't work? Why is no one told me you can be fat and happy and healthy and all those type of things. So that was the beginning of the end. The relationship ended. That's kind of wondering about that. Now I'm married to him. Can you imagine? No, that would be like, I don't know if you're familiar with Rachel Hollis, but it reminds me of her story when she married her ex-husband, but he was kind of like a jerk to her. And crazy. And then so she shared, it wasn't the same exact story as you, but you listen to it and you're like, wow, what a jerk. And then she's like, and I married him. And I was like, what? Why? Excuse me? Yeah. It's so good. I'm happy it's not like another Rachel Hollis thing here..

"Taking inventory. Right. Of what's around you. This is going to sound weird, but I stopped going to my nail salon because every time I went into my nail salon, there's ten TVs that have the news on and I sit there and it's like death and COVID and quarantine in this and for me to sit there for two hours, yeah, and even when I put on headphones, I can see it. Yes. It's just not the vibe that I want to have. Yeah. So I think that even just evaluating and taking inventory of the people you're hanging out with, you know, the podcast you're listening to is really important not to say you can't surround yourself with people with different opinions, but just like if it's negatively affecting you to really look at that.

Interview With Rachel Hollis, motivational speaker And author

"Hey everyone welcome to a special live episode of skimmed from the couch. I am so excited to be back from matt. Leave for this recording. It's been a huge week and we are thrilled to have a virtual audience joining us today for our conversation with rachel. Hollis rachel is a bestselling author podcast host and motivational speaker. You know her as the author of the hit book girl. Wash your face and her latest book. Didn't see that coming just came out last. Fall rachel you for joining us. Welcome to skip from the couch. Oh thank you guys so much for having me. We're gonna start with our first question. Let's have you skin your resume. What are the highlights. So my first job out of high school. I didn't go to college. My first job out of high school was actually miramax films. So back in the day when miramax was making good will hunting and emma and That was a bit of a trial by fire as you might suppose. I sort of hopped around production companies after that working as an assistant and then a coordinator and in the midst of that working in la and working in the entertainment industry was an incredible lesson on some levels and also pretty toxic environment on the other. And so i started to dream about what it would like to start my own company and be my own boss and after having a really crappy boss. I quit on a friday and started my company. Monday morning and back then. I was an event planner. So i had gotten my experience doing movie. Premieres press junkets. And i started to do those for brides and people having bought mitzvahs and someone's fiftieth birthday party. And i solely built that company up into what would become a high end luxury event business and it was really fun and it really fed my creative passion of designing spaces and the thrill of putting an event together and i started to get a bit restless and begin again to dream of something more. I started a blog back in two thousand eight which was sort of the heyday to have a blog and slowly than built that into a media company. So back then we wouldn't have used. We wouldn't have known things advertising or Putting things into your blog posts or talking about a certain product. But i started to kind of finagle my way and realized that there was a business there and that gave birth to the media. Company that i now owned today and i like to say you know my my job hasn't changed that much over the years. I have always just been trying to communicate with women in my community and my company and the things that i teach have evolved as i have evolved as a woman so i started writing a blog than i began writing books. Then i began writing about my life and all of that led to the things i've known for today which is speaking and writing and podcasts. Obviously as you just said so much of your life is out of the public on social media. What is something that we can't google about you that you haven't posted on instagram. That you see on my gosh so many things. Well okay. i'll tell you guys. I have not said this publicly but i'm really excited. I just finished my first screenplay. Congratulations thank you thank you. I literally cried when i wrote the last words. Because it's something. I dreamed about writing for a long time and as a writing is my creative outlet and started as an author in fiction and then somehow fell into nonfiction and kind of advice. And it's always been a dream to write a screenplay because i want to challenge myself a new medium so that was a big deal to finish. Who knows what will happen. And honestly i don't even care. I'm just proud of myself for finishing. Is it adapted from your books or is now really totally new idea. Yeah totally new idea. That's so exciting. Great way to start off the year. So i wanna We're going to go back into to how you grew. Up and tire stories started to evolve. We mentioned in our intro. The title of your book didn't see that coming. Your own story started with a tragedy that obviously you and your family did not see coming which was losing your brother to suicide and that loss is such an enormous part of your story in one start first of all despite using so sorry for your loss in also by asking if you could share with our audience just how that experience shaped you at such an earlier age and really shaped your resilience. Yes so When i was fourteen years old my older brother ryan committed suicide. He had struggled with mental illness for a kind of as long as i can remember was when i was little. I didn't really understand that. That's what was happening. But as i can look back as an adult. I understand it from totally different perspectives. I was fourteen. And i think that losing him in in that way would have been awful and traumatic no matter what but what sort of added so much more gravity to the situation was that i found him so i had not just the loss but also the ptsd of of that day in the morning and going through those things and wife shattering. I mean my family. My i think that my parents did the best that they could with the skills and the tools that they had but they didn't have a lot of skills and tools so it was already a hard childhood and this was sort of the thing that shattered Everything that was and trying to learn to deal with that. When i didn't have parents who knew how to help how to advise or to ask me questions or hey. This is who we should talk to. That just wasn't a resource that existed in my life so it was really hard to say the least

How to FINALLY Write That Book!

"Hi. I'm Rachel Hollis and this is my podcast I spend so many hours of every single week reading and listening to podcast and watching youtube videos and trying to find out as much as I can about the world around me, and that's what we do on this show we talk about everything life and how to be an entrepreneur what happened to dinosaurs? What's the best recipe for fried, chicken, what's the best plan for intermittent fasting? What's going on with our inner child house therapy working out for you whatever it is my guests are into I want to unpack so that we can all stand. These are conversations. This is information for the curious. This is the Rachel Hollis podcast. So. I will start off by saying I. Not a trained professional I. AM someone who has achieved a great amount of success in this particular field but I just want you to keep in mind that this is learned. This is like on the job learning. This is not something that I learned officially in school. So I am not going to advise you on grammar or or any of that I'm just going to give you nuts and bolts where to begin and where I suggest you begin is with word count now. Maybe right now you're like wait don't start with a character don't I start with yes. Of course you do but I can't help you figure out what you're supposed to write about. Those of us who are dreamers for those of us who want to be authors for those of us who are writers coming up with ideas was never the problem, right? Like it's not a problem what you want to say it's a problem trying to figure out how to get it down or how to get as much of it down as you need. So I am assuming that you already have a vision for what it is you want to write about. and. Then you're next very practical goal is what is the word count now that is something I never heard of until I actually started writing for real and what I will tell you if you're not familiar with this, is that every genre so if you're writing nonfiction if you're writing a cookbook, if you're writing a children's book or fiction anything that you are writing has an industry standard for what the word count is. Something like my cookbooks have a pretty low word count let's say I don't know thirty five. Thousand words because there are so many pictures in it my fiction books, the Word Count was ninety thousand words my nonfiction sixty, five, thousand. So the reason that you need to start with word count is that you need to know what you were going to have to turn in to a publisher or agent in order to be considered legit. So super practical piece of advice is understand what is the word count you are aiming for, and I can't tell you how many times acquaintances reach out to me because they WANNA. They WanNa right there I booker they're excited to star and they're like. Writing Nonfiction and they're like I am so excited I have written two, hundred, thousand words I mean it is just pouring out of me. I cannot wait for the world to see what this is and I'm just like, oh no. I for sure not going to be the one to tell them that. Nobody wants to read a first time author writing nonfiction turning in two hundred, thousand words nobody and right now you're like, no no. But nope, you gotTa Trim that down my friend or some of you are really excited and you wrote a fiction book and. It's fifteen thousand words. It's nowhere near Ninety, and in that instance, maybe you're creating novella or maybe you're creating a short story and all of this presupposes that you are wanting a book by traditional publishing means I guess I should have started their. If your plan is to self publish girl, you write whatever you wanNA write you write a nonfiction book that's three hundred thousand words. You write a fiction book that's one hundred words you get to do you. But if you wanna go the traditional route, then you need to play by some of their roles especially when you're first starting.

"Are you a tea drinker. We provide all of those just to ensure that consistency remains the queen of of your domain. Is that showing up everyday and keeping those conversations going. It doesn't make people feel like they're sold to because when you get into a launch or you really excited to do this thing and you've been silent on social media and then you show up with the machine gun approach. You know. It's like by this thing by this thing by this thing by this thing quiet. I'm in Kabo Pictures. Who Margaritas my feet in the sand? Silence launch this by this thing so real and so that because we see it happen too often and just think that actually the Kabo photos are amazing and the launch photos in capitals are amazing but you gotta fill in the blanks on the inbetween or people just feel sold. Jack is such a smart idea. Soup it as part of it you get you get photos they can use. Is your photos on their instagram. Feed or their facebook and then they're writing the copy. Is that right with our own and I want to make a very clear distinction that when people say oh. They're your photos. No Baby Boo there your or photos. I don't need photo credit. I create these photos as a way to inspire people to show up and no photo credit is needed and the captions are thinking about this as a really cool entrepreneurial got mad libs so we talk about what are things. You're most proud about your business. And then you fill in the gaps and we talk about the emotions related to that. How do you spend your holidays? It's fifteen captions where you can Opening up on the first month and say every other day I have engaging caption that is related to my business but not selling my business so we have a team of freelancers in creatives that we work with to get the photos that you see for our social log for instagram. We do photo shoots where we take like a crap ten photos at one time and then my team will upload them in. I've said it before. Used an APP called plainly so that P. L. A. N. L. Y.. Anyone wants to check it out. But there's there's just a ton of photos and then it doesn't matter what the photo is because what people are coming to my feed for is the copy. That's attached to the photo so oftentimes see on my instagram. It might be a picture of me you know. Sometimes I'm like this is just a picture. So here's whatever but most of the time. It's like a picture of a Coffee Coffee Cup and talking about motivation like they have nothing to do with each other. But you need that beautiful photography to set a certain standard for the type of brand that that you have or the type of company that you're building so such a smart idea. Well thank you. He was literally built. Like what is that. The Cold Lake the mother of innovation is a separate station excessively necessity and so I was walking my I was walking like my tribe. Hi through what it meant to do this. What it meant to plan so basically? I'm a huge advocate of what you said like batch bathroom your content so that you're not shackled at the content and the thing that we heard again and again again is that even if he had the photos of what they didn't know what to say if they would say they didn't have the photos and we also include a monthly marketing plan. This means is that like people are getting this every month. We focus is just an one micro topic like how to use instagram stories as a vehicle to talk about your business instead of. Oh like my beating. Cheerios O.. The cat got into the laundry. Those those stories are finding great but they're also our strategic ways to talk about your business as an extension of Iran in really show up for your audience in real ways we also about facebook ads. When mom's we talk about copywriting be writing when mom so were there to kind of be a solution in a community for people who do want to show up and they just want a clear path to get there seriously? I mean it's shocking to me that I didn't think of it first. So congratulations just kidding. I think that's such a smart idea in it so so helpful because I know like there's there's a ton of women who listened to this who do direct sales or multi level marketing. And they know how to do the network they know how to do the parties ladies but they really struggle with how to show up on social and social just increases your reach ten. Fold particularly for those of you who live in smaller towns so coach if someone's listening in their super down. What website should they go to check this out my social curator DOT COM and? Let's go back for a second to building building a personal brands. You did mention MLM. But I believe that the foundation of a release accessible person within a MLM structure is somebody who knows how to build a personal brand and the thing. Is that at these amazing. MLM companies will give you lots of collateral but it it empowers the company to for you to talk about the product. But why if I can buy essential oils is or haircare or a fitness shake from literally hundreds of thousands of people. Why would I choose to buy it from you? And now this is your opportunity to define who you are and do that. No like trust factor and say you know what that. Vote of the Cup of coffee when you really talked about motivation. It's just you Rachel. I WANNA buy your book. I want to talk to you so whatever it is. I'm GONNA choose you anything that that's how we need need to view this as we are the captain of our ship. How are we going to show up and connect to our tribe in a way that they feel empowered and also close affinity to who we are? You know what I'm never. You're so oh absolutely right and have never thought about it before the idea that you have you have to be able to build a personal brand to stand out within a community of people who are. We're also insane product that you're selling that's so it's not just any totally not mlm because you clearly did this when you started your wedding coordination like you knew that people were going to hire you even though other people can get the exact same resources to the florist Dj to the venues. But they said it's you. I want to work with you. And so many of us as business owners. We want to lead with what we do. We WANNA lead with our product we WANNA leave with are pretty pictures and all actuality. Let's turn it inside out so we were our hearts on the outside and our products.

It doesn't make people feel like they're sold to because when you get into a launch or you really excited to do this thing and you've been silent on social media and then you show up with the machine gun approach. You know. It's like by this thing by this thing by this thing by this thing quiet. I'm in Kabo Pictures. Who Margaritas my feet in the sand? Silence launch this by this thing so real and so that because we see it happen too often and just think that actually the Kabo photos are amazing and the launch photos in capitals are amazing but you gotta fill in the blanks on the inbetween or people just feel sold. Jack is such a smart idea. Soup it as part of it you get you get photos they can use. Is your photos on their instagram. Feed or their facebook and then they're writing the copy. Is that right with our own and I want to make a very clear distinction that when people say oh. They're your photos. No Baby Boo there your or photos. I don't need photo credit. I create these photos as a way to inspire people to show up and no photo credit is needed and the captions are thinking about this as a really cool entrepreneurial got mad libs so we talk about what are things. You're most proud about your business. And then you fill in the gaps and we talk about the emotions related to that. How do you spend your holidays? It's fifteen captions where you can Opening up on the first month and say every other day I have engaging caption that is related to my business but not selling my business so we have a team of freelancers in creatives that we work with to get the photos that you see for our social log for instagram. We do photo shoots where we take like a crap ten photos at one time and then my team will upload them in. I've said it before. Used an APP called plainly so that P. L. A. N. L. Y.. Anyone wants to check it out. But there's there's just a ton of photos and then it doesn't matter what the photo is because what people are coming to my feed for is the copy. That's attached to the photo so oftentimes see on my instagram. It might be a picture of me you know. Sometimes I'm like this is just a picture. So here's whatever but most of the time. It's like a picture of a Coffee Coffee Cup and talking about motivation like they have nothing to do with each other. But you need that beautiful photography to set a certain standard for the type of brand that that you have or the type of company that you're building so such a smart idea. Well thank you. He was literally built. Like what is that. The Cold Lake the mother of innovation is a separate station excessively necessity and so I was walking my I was walking like my tribe. Hi through what it meant to do this. What it meant to plan so basically? I'm a huge advocate of what you said like batch bathroom your content so that you're not shackled at the content and the thing that we heard again and again again is that even if he had the photos of what they didn't know what to say if they would say they didn't have the photos and we also include a monthly marketing plan. This means is that like people are getting this every month. We focus is just an one micro topic like how to use instagram stories as a vehicle to talk about your business instead of. Oh like my beating. Cheerios O.. The cat got into the laundry. Those those stories are finding great but they're also our strategic ways to talk about your business as an extension of Iran in really show up for your audience in real ways we also about facebook ads. When mom's we talk about copywriting be writing when mom so were there to kind of be a solution in a community for people who do want to show up and they just want a clear path to get there seriously? I mean it's shocking to me that I didn't think of it first. So congratulations just kidding. I think that's such a smart idea in it so so helpful because I know like there's there's a ton of women who listened to this who do direct sales or multi level marketing. And they know how to do the network they know how to do the parties ladies but they really struggle with how to show up on social and social just increases your reach ten. Fold particularly for those of you who live in smaller towns so coach if someone's listening in their super down. What website should they go to check this out my social curator DOT COM and? Let's go back for a second to building building a personal brands. You did mention MLM. But I believe that the foundation of a release accessible person within a MLM structure is somebody who knows how to build a personal brand and the thing. Is that at these amazing. MLM companies will give you lots of collateral but it it empowers the company to for you to talk about the product. But why if I can buy essential oils is or haircare or a fitness shake from literally hundreds of thousands of people. Why would I choose to buy it from you? And now this is your opportunity to define who you are and do that. No like trust factor and say you know what that. Vote of the Cup of coffee when you really talked about motivation. It's just you Rachel. I WANNA buy your book. I want to talk to you so whatever it is. I'm GONNA choose you anything that that's how we need need to view this as we are the captain of our ship. How are we going to show up and connect to our tribe in a way that they feel empowered and also close affinity to who we are? You know what I'm never. You're so oh absolutely right and have never thought about it before the idea that you have you have to be able to build a personal brand to stand out within a community of people who are. We're also insane product that you're selling that's so it's not just any totally not mlm because you clearly did this when you started your wedding coordination like you knew that people were going to hire you even though other people can get the exact same resources to the florist Dj to the venues. But they said it's you. I want to work with you. And so many of us as business owners. We want to lead with what we do. We WANNA lead with our product we WANNA leave with are pretty pictures and all actuality. Let's turn it inside out so we were our hearts on the outside and our products.

"See her social. This is all my dreams. Come true in one. Beautiful Feed Jasmine. Tell us tell us about how they can get involved with view or can they is there. Is it like a closed club or you can open. Oh if it was a close group club no no no no I have never been a cool. I will never have no no so the thing this is. The thing that I started noticing is the more. I was speaking to small and medium-sized businesses. I realize that they're really great about talking about their business but is almost like they were too great so that every post on facebook in every post on twitter and instagram was just like my widget is in green eye homemade might widget my which is the best my which is on holiday sale. I'm launching my widget. My widget comes in green and what happened was people started asking. Why am I not growing? Why are people not engaging and I'm like Bouba when's the last time you talk back to Qvc like you don't talk back to the people who are selling you things on a consistent basis so why does the thing that we have to do with social media is we have to make get social in relation to our business? And I started noticing that I was teaching people to show of MB Social and ask questions and talk about personal things. which is something that you Rachel Jewkes so extraordinarily ordinarily well that yes you have all these different components but a lot of times? You're okay to talk about your coffee and your manicures and people standing in line and people resonate with that because they resonate with you and consists money. It took us so many years to figure that out for years it would sit around and have like big brainstorming days. We'd say well you know I right years ago. So it's like well all I write fiction books and I also food blogger and I have kids and all of these things and none of them really worked and when we would go try and talk to other businesses are brands that we're going to partner with so many people are like I don't get it. I don't get your business and it honestly took years for us to go wait a minute. It's me me like a friend with me. We would talk about my books and my kids and the recipe I made last night and so we can't market the business because we have to market like what is the heart of this company so I love that the mission in how you're teaching people because that is the answer a hundred percent and I feel like anybody who just did not like pas the podcast. If you're in the car waiting to pick up the kids from school we need to put this on pause take a breather back it up fifteen to thirty seconds seconds. Because what Rachel just dropped was a knowledge bomb and it just exploded. She said the reason why people followed her was because of her and I think that it's so so important that as business owners even. We're not building a personal brand rebuilding a business. The heart and soul of the business must be out on display so social curator is a monthly membership that empowers people to talk about who they are as a person in relation to their business so we provide stock.

"Hey there and welcome back to the Jasmine Star show where you'll hear everything from tactical business strategies to amazing interviews and pay my musings about life and how to stand in your purpose purpose but now it's time to get this podcast party started because I don't know if you've left your house at some point in the last year here. I'm sure you know the woman I had a conversation with a few months ago. Rachel Hellas is a powerhouse and in this episode which is a replay from her podcast. CAST call rise. We go deep talking about our shared background and having the data CD to dream despite what others might have told us. I think you're GonNa love this episode as much as we loved recording it so without further ado. Here's my interview on Rachel Hollis's rise podcast. Thank you so much for hanging out with me today. Jasmine I am a longtime fan. So I'm earning out a little bit that I get to talk to you. I wish you were like hanging out in real life drinking coffee or having wine or during something fun but this is pretty good too. It is pretty good and drinking coffee. So you know we're chatting and drink coffee that's two out of the five things. Okay we're starting off on a good bit So I would love it if you would tell listeners. Who maybe aren't as familiar with you? You or who are and just want to go the story again. Tell us about who you are what you do and how you got here well. My name is Jasmine Star and photographer for in business. Strategist and I happen to believe in no that I like to make wild ideas come to life so to kind of put like what it means to pursue my career in a box would be. It'd be a really wonky box. I just crea- I love creating and I love when people say can't be done because I'm there's like watch me let's just kinda create eight along the way and so how that's manifested itself is. I picked up a camera after dropping out of law school when I saw my mom had a relapse with brain cancer and realize as the enormity and beautiful -ness of life and they realized how short it was and I thought to myself I am on the wrong path in so what does it look like for me to course correct in order to have my mom's legacy intact but the best part of it is that my mom is still here with us today. That was a time in my life where it was just like a big reckoning wing and against all the odds she's arrived in against all the odds. I had taken the camera. I didn't know how to work or what to do. And I was terrible when I first started boarded up. The pictures are awful But you know after you enroll in the university. Google you've figured out figure out like you could really make things things work and three years later. I was voted one of the top ten photographers in the world. And the game is changed and I think that was the first time in my life where I realize that for for people who have the ability to dream. Things are possible so when people tell me we will jasmine. It's talking to work or the odds are stacked against me or I don't think it's possible I look at them and I just say everything is possible. How bad do you want it? I love that I love it and I have a hundred thousand questions so a MM first of all. I have heard that before I listened to your interview with Ed. My less I love so much. I love his podcast. I tell listeners about all the time But there's a great interview interview Between he and Jasmine just getting into that story in that journey for you and I loved hearing about that prompt. Like you're doing this this thing which I think I remember you saying was a pretty big deal culturally for your family that you were going to law school is that right. Oh completely I'm a first generation Latina a first generation college student first-generation Post Grad student. It was like a big thing for an immigrant family but more so it was a big thing for people from like the body. Oh to see somebody we do big things and they felt like. Am I going to let people down. That was my biggest worry. Yeah that's a lot of responsibility. I know one of our team members who has I've been with me for ever. She starred as my sister now. She works in operations. Name's Michelle Shutout She grew up in. La Her she is Latina and that is is something she's talked about. A lot is not really seeing examples of who she supposed to aspire to be like outside of the entertainment industry Who are the women that she supposed to stay in business or that she's supposed to admire so? I love that you started out doing something that you you know to to sort of pave away and now you're doing it totally like an even bigger platform than you would. If you had become a lawyer thousand percent in I believe in and to all the Latinas who are lawyers like my. Hat's off to you when you are when you are walking in your purpose people can see it and they feel like it would have been disingenuous if I was just like. This is the thing I have to do therefore I must instead. It's like people especially in the community. That is supportive and loving you. They want you to win. Nobody's sitting there wagging they're Brown. Fingers here is being like. She's not GonNa do it. No support it. They want they want us to win. But I think without a clearly identified plan in goal. We sometimes flounder. Asking in for help was like a big thing but also admitting say if if I believe in this dream and if I can get other people to support me along the way that it will be a manifestation of all of our collective desires and wishes that's awesome and tell me about the camera because this was did you buy it for yourself or did your husband buy it for you like that. I like okay okay so I okay so the thing was I left law school. I had a full ride scholarship to UCLA. Law School. And I left law school with the full. Knowing that I was going to go back I was going to reclaim my scholarships caller ships. And I just needed to be with my mom during this really difficult time in our lives and during that time my long term boyfriend of nine years proposed and we planned and wedding in three months because the doctors had said it was time to plan a funeral and the one thing I need my mom to see me is to get married and so the doctor said she wouldn't walk and the doctor doctor said she wouldn't talk and the doctor said she wouldn't be cleared to fly and as a walking miracle that she is she did all of those things and when we came back it was like I I just felt the force in the gravity of everything she fought for to be on that day and I thought to myself is that the life I want to claim going back and doing the safe path and I sat down with dinner received a letter from Ucla law school and it came on pink paper and we were living in this dive apartment in this totally ripe neighborhood of La. Hey and I opened this and it said you know this is the form you have to fill out to come back and get your place their second semester. Ucla and I thought to myself. This is the saddest. I think I've ever been in a while L.. And he asked me if you could do one thing for the rest of your life and be happy. What would it be and they said? I think I want to be a photographer. Wow he said okay you. You don't have a camera like I didn't have combined owner camera. I've never used a camera but in my mind I was like. Hey that thing I could do it and other people would hear that story and they would probably Italy's they like Oh good luck you bless your heart we're in the South Bay bless your heart. And he didn't he didn't he believed in he believed in the dream and and He had a conversation after it was Christmas Day. Two thousand five. I open this camera and I am not a crier casually joke that I'm like the Tin Man I am holding the camera. And I'm crying but two thousand five was such a hard year for me. I left law school. I mean he's still having a lot of issues with my mom. I had no money I I had just gotten married not living in a place that does driving at two thousand. Two Honda accord with an oxidized hood. And I was working part time at a church I was like I was just like hot mess mess and he said take a year just one year one year. If it doesn't work you can go back to law school. Because I had three hundred to three or wanted to go back and they said okay. Let's take this year but I did not open the camera in two thousand five because the two thousand five is not A. You're ever want to repeat my life but on January first two thousand six. I Open that box and I thought to myself this is it. We're GONNA do things with this camera and we did that. So tell me this because I also am Have a like a master's degree in Google. It is literally happened my company a hundred percent. I heard that I thought was so good. Like in an an age of this much information to remain ignorant about. Something is an active choice. There is so good there is so much information that exists this out there for free So tell me what you did. You open up that camera and you go from never having done this to your being named one of the biggest photographers in the world. Give me some of those steps from there to you. Know How do you go from the bottom to the top in our here. A who doesn't love a little today craft. Let's Okay so let's just break this down into listeners. WHO MAY NOT HAVE THE PASSION FOR GRAFFITI? It's like step number one is reverse engineer. What you want so picture where you want to be about a year and then work backwards backwards from there in so I knew that I had one year to really make or break this thing and I thought to myself in one year how would I measure whether or not I can? Actually they make this work and I thought to myself okay in one year if I could book three gigs and if I could shlep bags in intern and if I could just just take a photo of it didn't look like the worst ever to take those. I was shooting low here but when I had a clearly identified sense of success assess how I defined it and some people look at success. Isn't having a a private jet and it's not having a yacht and it's not having a home in this particular zip code. Success is how you define it if that is picking up your child every day from school then that success success have dinner with your family every.

It's talking to work or the odds are stacked against me or I don't think it's possible I look at them and I just say everything is possible. How bad do you want it? I love that I love it and I have a hundred thousand questions so a MM first of all. I have heard that before I listened to your interview with Ed. My less I love so much. I love his podcast. I tell listeners about all the time But there's a great interview interview Between he and Jasmine just getting into that story in that journey for you and I loved hearing about that prompt. Like you're doing this this thing which I think I remember you saying was a pretty big deal culturally for your family that you were going to law school is that right. Oh completely I'm a first generation Latina a first generation college student first-generation Post Grad student. It was like a big thing for an immigrant family but more so it was a big thing for people from like the body. Oh to see somebody we do big things and they felt like. Am I going to let people down. That was my biggest worry. Yeah that's a lot of responsibility. I know one of our team members who has I've been with me for ever. She starred as my sister now. She works in operations. Name's Michelle Shutout She grew up in. La Her she is Latina and that is is something she's talked about. A lot is not really seeing examples of who she supposed to aspire to be like outside of the entertainment industry Who are the women that she supposed to stay in business or that she's supposed to admire so? I love that you started out doing something that you you know to to sort of pave away and now you're doing it totally like an even bigger platform than you would. If you had become a lawyer thousand percent in I believe in and to all the Latinas who are lawyers like my. Hat's off to you when you are when you are walking in your purpose people can see it and they feel like it would have been disingenuous if I was just like. This is the thing I have to do therefore I must instead. It's like people especially in the community. That is supportive and loving you. They want you to win. Nobody's sitting there wagging they're Brown. Fingers here is being like. She's not GonNa do it. No support it. They want they want us to win. But I think without a clearly identified plan in goal. We sometimes flounder. Asking in for help was like a big thing but also admitting say if if I believe in this dream and if I can get other people to support me along the way that it will be a manifestation of all of our collective desires and wishes that's awesome and tell me about the camera because this was did you buy it for yourself or did your husband buy it for you like that. I like okay okay so I okay so the thing was I left law school. I had a full ride scholarship to UCLA. Law School. And I left law school with the full. Knowing that I was going to go back I was going to reclaim my scholarships caller ships. And I just needed to be with my mom during this really difficult time in our lives and during that time my long term boyfriend of nine years proposed and we planned and wedding in three months because the doctors had said it was time to plan a funeral and the one thing I need my mom to see me is to get married and so the doctor said she wouldn't walk and the doctor doctor said she wouldn't talk and the doctor said she wouldn't be cleared to fly and as a walking miracle that she is she did all of those things and when we came back it was like I I just felt the force in the gravity of everything she fought for to be on that day and I thought to myself is that the life I want to claim going back and doing the safe path and I sat down with dinner received a letter from Ucla law school and it came on pink paper and we were living in this dive apartment in this totally ripe neighborhood of La. Hey and I opened this and it said you know this is the form you have to fill out to come back and get your place their second semester. Ucla and I thought to myself. This is the saddest. I think I've ever been in a while L.. And he asked me if you could do one thing for the rest of your life and be happy. What would it be and they said? I think I want to be a photographer. Wow he said okay you. You don't have a camera like I didn't have combined owner camera. I've never used a camera but in my mind I was like. Hey that thing I could do it and other people would hear that story and they would probably Italy's they like Oh good luck you bless your heart we're in the South Bay bless your heart. And he didn't he didn't he believed in he believed in the dream and and He had a conversation after it was Christmas Day. Two thousand five. I open this camera and I am not a crier casually joke that I'm like the Tin Man I am holding the camera. And I'm crying but two thousand five was such a hard year for me. I left law school. I mean he's still having a lot of issues with my mom. I had no money I I had just gotten married not living in a place that does driving at two thousand. Two Honda accord with an oxidized hood. And I was working part time at a church I was like I was just like hot mess mess and he said take a year just one year one year. If it doesn't work you can go back to law school. Because I had three hundred to three or wanted to go back and they said okay. Let's take this year but I did not open the camera in two thousand five because the two thousand five is not A. You're ever want to repeat my life but on January first two thousand six. I Open that box and I thought to myself this is it. We're GONNA do things with this camera and we did that. So tell me this because I also am Have a like a master's degree in Google. It is literally happened my company a hundred percent. I heard that I thought was so good. Like in an an age of this much information to remain ignorant about. Something is an active choice. There is so good there is so much information that exists this out there for free So tell me what you did. You open up that camera and you go from never having done this to your being named one of the biggest photographers in the world. Give me some of those steps from there to you. Know How do you go from the bottom to the top in our here. A who doesn't love a little today craft. Let's Okay so let's just break this down into listeners. WHO MAY NOT HAVE THE PASSION FOR GRAFFITI? It's like step number one is reverse engineer. What you want so picture where you want to be about a year and then work backwards backwards from there in so I knew that I had one year to really make or break this thing and I thought to myself in one year how would I measure whether or not I can? Actually they make this work and I thought to myself okay in one year if I could book three gigs and if I could shlep bags in intern and if I could just just take a photo of it didn't look like the worst ever to take those. I was shooting low here but when I had a clearly identified sense of success assess how I defined it and some people look at success. Isn't having a a private jet and it's not having a yacht and it's not having a home in this particular zip code. Success is how you define it if that is picking up your child every day from school then that success success have dinner with your family every.

"Yeah i give myself a <unk> for <hes> during our trip our family trip to montana which we do every summer so so you know listen you were there last summer because it was the big was the big milestone birthday celebration for our father and my father-in-law and you do you remember. The bug bites that i got on my shoulder. It was like craziness okay so do. I know that there are bugs that bite in montana. Yes i a new and then i go out in montana one day and say hey who needs bug spray. I don't think i've seen any mosquitoes flying around yes i did and did i get bitten all all over the place one hundred percent and this is just because i knew perfectly well and it wasn't even just people telling me i had vivid memories of exactly exactly the same time period a year ago where i got bitten up extraordinarily badly with mosquitoes and yet i was like i can't be bothered to go run and get the bug spray out of the bathroom. I mean gene demerit. This is like the sunscreen phenomenon gretchen where how many times have i gone out in the sun and said oh. I'm sure i won't get burned. Even though all sci says otherwise a friend of mine said that her doctor gave her great test which is unless you need a flashlight. You need sunscreen <hes> ooh well. I think i have to jack. I think i have learned my bug spray lesson now. I i do believe in bug spray but listen give us a goldstar or regrets. My ah goldstar goes to feature in post mate so everyone's got post mates. It's where you get food delivered and and there are other apps similar similar to it and they might have the same feature but i've been using post mates and you can time when they deliver the food. This is the gold star. I discovered this was i had we had a couple of families over this weekend and you know i'm trying to entertain more really stresses me how and even though i don't cook i just order food in is always stress me out like when delay order and then everyone's there and trying to get drinks but i have to like step away way for fifteen minutes order and try to get what people want and you know. It's just like a whole production so this weekend. I told people like were ordering from this restaurant. What do you like what request you have. If you don't have requests that's fine. I'll just order and then people texted me like what their kids like and i ordered it all like ten a._m. Set the delivery time for between six thirty seven and then. I never had to deal with it again and it made my evening so much more pleasant. I cannot even tell you. I was just delighted because 'cause you didn't have to kind of monitor that plan for that and be like i should do it in fifteen minutes and run around and be like adam helped me find out what people want so you know. It's just always such a production and what was nice as i could log on and see like oh. They've picked up the food so i knew to sort of be getting getting ready and i feel like it's a it's a game changer for me. I'm very excited. Well i do give a gold star to you for having people over right because that is a major priority for you for a long time and you're making tremendous strides and these are the kinds of things that as you do it you learn and then it gets easier <unk> an easier the more you do it. Which is what we always say ourselves that if we would just do it we would do it more and you and i keep reminding ourselves of that but now you're actually doing it so called star yes.

"The top thirty entrepreneurs under thirty long before her social start made her seem like an overnight success today. She has a social footprint that's measured in the millions. And she is one of the most sought after motivational speakers on the planet. In addition to that, she's the host of two of the highest rated podcasts in the world rise and rise together. So please help me in welcoming the woman who is taking the world by absolute storm, the author of the new book girl, stop apologizing the founder and CEO of the Hollis company. Rachel hollis. Not a person you are the greatest hype squad I have ever encountered just run behind you. No, I'm gonna get that recording. And just play it right before I go workout every day. So speaking of things that you do to get hyped up for your workout, you open, your new book by saying that it was essentially inspired by Demi Levato. It absolutely was. So that was amazing. Sorry, not sorry. Yep. And I have a few quotes from the salt. Hey, I'm ready. I want to see what in the book, you think speaks to this. Because I so I put this song. I'd heard it before but paid attention. It's actually pretty awesome. So here's some of the lyrics now. I'm out here. Looking like revenge. Yep. Feeling like attend the best. I've ever been my favorite line. If you talk that talk baby, you better walk that walk baby for that was pretty awesome. And this this is my second favorite. Payback's a bad bitch, and baby I'm the baddest. You're fucked. Yes, you are. So talk to me about how your book addresses fucking assessor. Actually, my new favorite line about being a savage is Arianna. Grandes new song say yes. Then through some hard shit. I should be a sad bitch who would've thought it turn me to a savage. Yes. I got that. I heard the song and was singing like everybody that summer was really singing that song. And it sparked the question for me of what are the things I'm not sorry for and as a recovering people pleaser struggled for years with wanting to make sure everyone was happy and the idea that someone husband or my in-laws are my parents might be disappointed in me was crippling. So I've done a lot of work, and they're certainly areas of my life where I still struggle with that. But there are some areas where I just am I'm savage about it. And one of those for me is. I do not care what other people think of me for having goals and dreams for myself. And I just sat in meetings all week with really big companies and people, and they would say like what does the future look like for you like what is an years ago? I would be like, oh, I don't know. We'll see we'll see what happens. And now, I'm like Oprah like if Oprah Ellen had a baby which may be possible here at some point. You know, like, it's someone who can make you laugh, and then also can challenge you to show up for your own life is, but I couldn't claim that five years ago or ten years ago. I would have worried what everyone in this room thought of me because who says that woulda douchebag, but I might still struggle with you know, what you think of my hair or my writing style. But I certainly don't care what what you think of me for having a dream. And I think that it's one of the things that cripples women most is they have this desire on their heart. They wanna pursue something for themselves. And they're too afraid of what other people think they're too afraid of what like Marissa from eighth grade is going to think of them for signing up for half marathon. They're too afraid of what they're mother-in-law thinks of them for wanting to start a business, and they just drown in the shame associated with it. And nobody calls it Bs. Nobody says like wait..
