such sweet surrender
to the goodness of the Lord
who is our Deliverer
I'm working on a podcast post about waiting on God. He may not seem to show up right away, but we are wise to "wait for it." He's always at work. We're always on His mind. He holds us in His heart.
Blessings on your weekend, dear friends. I'm busier than I have ever been before, but I know He knows. I'm waiting on Him because He is good.
No one’s ever seen or heard anything like this, Never so much as imagined anything quite like it— What God has arranged for those who love him. But you’ve seen and heard it because God by his Spirit has brought it all out into the open before you. 1 Corinthians 2:9, The Message Bible #StayTuned
My story of overcoming: from heavily medicated just out the psych ward the first time from attempting suicide, diagnosed with bipolar, generalized anxiety, social anxiety, depression, anorexia & OCD while struggling with disconnection and addictions. Feeling like I had no life within me. Literally feeling nothing at all due to the “cocktail” of meds they had me on that were only increasingly making everything worse. I found a way out; I used herbs to get me from lifeless to desiring something and having some goals! (reading a million books in a year 😂) That picture was almost 9 years ago! Crazy to look at her, the eyes tell so much in itself. ..
Let’s fast forward to now. Mom of two. Wife to @mrmedicinals wth so much connection, goals, ambitions. No longer struggling with any of the above diagnosis. Growing each day more and more and knowing my life is so valuable and worthy. The girl on the left surrounded herself by people of low energy. The girl on the right is quick to cut off anyone who stagnates my growth and comes around with low vibes. The girl on the left had no idea what love was. The girl on the right loves life beyond imaginable.
A couple days ago I published a #podcast on how I overcame all of these things. If you struggle with any of the above issues, I highly recommend listening and training your mind to overcome!

5 Things Businesses should delegate but often don't.
*design (web or graphic)
If you are still trying to wear all the capes by doing these tasks – you should consider delegating immediately!!
You can really hinder revenue and growth by trying to do it all. Delegating tasks can be critical for any entrepreneur wanting to succeed. As a business owner, it is imperative that you are working on projects that have the biggest impact on your growth- everything else is taking too much of your time and should be delegated.
Adding an employee can be a financial burden for many, they want or need to but between taxes, insurances, paid time off, etc. it is not feasible. However! A Virtual Assistant works by the hour. They do not require taxes, or insurance, or paid time off, or office space, or any other cost related to a normal employee. They are contractors to you and are hired (depending) 1, 5, 10, 20 + hours a month to help you manage tasks, then you can spend your time where it is most valuable.
My name is Cassie, and I am a Virtual Assistant.. If you have questions or want to connect just message me, email me, call me, whatever works for you! 🤩🤩
#BurgerWeek... honestly until about Wednesday I had no idea that was a real thing or that it was this week. So thank you @thepitchkc, now I know.
There are a lot of things that I don’t know, but what’s worse than what I don’t know, are the things that I pretend that I know about, what I “think” I know about. I have preconceived ideas or prejudice or opinions about something or someone that I’ve been to lazy to find out about. #ForRealz
It’s easy and cheap to form opinions, it takes a little bit more effort and a little bit more money to have experiences.
Case in Point: Corvino‘s Supper Club and Tasting Room. The first time I went there I had no idea what to expect, but like I said I had “opinions“. This place is going to be expensive, this place was going to be out of my league, this place was going to feel High Brow blah blah blah.
Wrong! This place is massively inviting, the hostess and servers were kind and one of the owners @christinacorvinokc hugged me and my wife. The food was absolutely amazing ,but I understood what I was eating I didn’t feel like an idiot.
It took a little effort, I had to make a reservation and find a babysitter, it took a little more money, but come on you’re not nobodies getting a babysitter or making a reservation to go to Steak’n Shake.
The only thing that was shockingly “cheap” was at @michaelcorvino Michael Corvino‘s burger! What in the heck is he thinking? Am I to believe the greatest burger I’ve ever ate in my entire life only cost $10. Same experience, same fancy restaurant, same warm and welcoming staff, but for $10.
So my personal advice, my personal opinion based on experience is, if you want to finish off burger week right, you need to get your butt to Corvino’s and try the burger. Also if you don’t feel good about getting a sitter and a reservation to go eat a $10 burger because you want a expensive experience, just buy and eat five of them, you won’t be disappointed. #E⚡️E
On today's episode of the podcast, the tables are turned:
I'm the one being interviewed.
I appeared on Sean Whalen's podcast!
A lot of you know who Sean is. If you do, chances are you have strong feelings about him. He's not one for the lukewarm.
On some level, Sean and I couldn't be more different.
Peel back the layers, and we've got vast amounts in common.

Risk Takers T-Shirt Collection dropping August 1st on the 614Startups Marketplace.
They change with your season of life. For me right now, this is what mine looks like:
1️⃣First. NO PHONES until at least an hour after waking up. I drink a glass of water and sometimes make a cup of coffee. (I’ve cut down quite a bit on the coffee after I realized it was giving me headaches.)
2️⃣ Anthony and I have been working out early in the mornings lately, though the last couple of days have been a struggle. 🤦♀️ Headphones for the podcast-listening while working out.
3️⃣ Bible Reading and Personal Development. I’m doing a lot in 1-3 John. And the book Building a Storybrand...I’m blown away! So much info!
4️⃣Getting ready, makeup, hur, all the things. For my two and three day hair, I use Dry Shampoo that is specifically non-flammable and without harsh chemicals to spruce up my hair and add volume.
5️⃣ THEN, lastly it’s time for the planner to see what I have going on that day and what I need to accomplish. I use the @thedaydesigner which has been heavenly!
There ya go! That’s what I do! What are your morning routines?
We wanted to announce this with enough time for people to make plans. Our next movie night is August 4th at 7 at Full Moon Cineplex! We are showing the cult classic Big Trouble in Little China. Our poster is designed by the one and only @shaunwatson87. If you have seen any awesome IT posters later, those were his. When @jessicachastain@andy_muschietti and @variety are all fans, you are doing something right! We will also be giving away a framed copy of the print, details to come. Also, if you buy a poster or shirt (or both!) you will be given a card that serves as your membership card to our Creepy Club! Hope to see everyone there!

“What we see on the outside is always a direct reflection of our inner landscape. When we are out of touch with that space inside in our own heart where the wisdom lives, we are quick to buy into whatever our mind is subscribing to - usually leading us astray. Often without awareness.
As we learn instead to connect with and listen to our heart compass, we get to see and experience our world from a real, honest place inside ~ where all of our best answers live... Where the outer world becomes a powerful reflection of our knowing heart.” - @jessiemaywolfe
Repost from @ladybossglasses - an inspiring female entrepreneur and #girlboss that will be sharing her story with all of you on the @WOWWcampaign podcast! Thank you, Lauren, for reminding women of their power and turning this message into the core of everything you do. 💁🏻♀️💛🙌🏻 #WOWWcampaign
Welcome to the latest evolution of the Resist Average Academy podcast experience.
As you grow and evolve —so will your message, brand and platform.
It’s our mission to pull the curtain back on the greats and find what makes them tick.
But further, to dig deep into their worldview, how they define success, overcome adversity and to paint a real picture of the beauty of the journey.
Armed with this wisdom in your back pocket, you’re now able to navigate your own experience with a deeper perspective to create a life on fire.
A life that matters to you.
A life that gives you chills.
A life that brings out the best in you.
That’s the name of the game.
Every single time I step up to the mic, I make an intention of holding as much presence and space for them…
So we can uncover the gold, and go three levels deeper.
Here’s to the next evolution —it’s a pleasure to serve those who are willing to have the courage to listen to their inner voice and dream bigger and bolder!
I have consults with mastermind clients as well as membership site clients and then we’re hitting the road to head back to NY.
I’ll be speaking @podcastmovement in Philly next week and then it’s off to Las Vegas for @connecthermedia the following week.
By the time we get back to NC the summer will be practically over and it’ll be back to school.
I’m excited for a whirlwind end to the summer and can’t wait to meet more fabulous podcasters and bloggers.
Who else will be heading to these conferences? Be sure to let me know in the comments so we can meet up.
Letzter Job für diese Woche! Um 10 noch schnell bei @bigFM reingeschneit, die neusten Songs & Tralala eingesprochen & jetzt ab ins Wochenende 🙌🏻 Was habt ihr Schönes vor? Stuttgarter, sehen wir uns auf dem Marienplatzfest? Würd mich freuen 😊
When I took this photo, I was feeling like a magical unicorn goddess. I was swaying my hips to the music in my head and making love to the camera left and right.
I was determined to have a set of photos I was in alignment with. Some I could look back years to come and say, yup-- that is how I feel every day 😂. Even though this was only a few weeks ago, I can ABSOLUTELY say that my life doesn't feel like magical unicorn goddess energy every day.
Some days my heart feels broken open. I don't want to leave the bed. I don't want to eat (that's a lie, I always want to eat). I don't want to go places, all the while wanting to be invited to everything.
Life is confusing like that. One week we are motivated to the Ritz and the next we don't want to do anything but shower so that we can lay around and still feel productive.
Please don't neglect those parts of you that feel pain, unmotivated, lost or grief. Those parts are just as valid as all the other parts.
And also-- just because your most productive activity was a shower or you spent the last two hours crying in bed doesn't mean you are not a magical unicorn goddess. She is still there.
As I am learning right now, how can you be crying in your bed AND find the part of you that is the unicorn goddess? They exist at the same time. You just have to slow down enough to feel both.

Do you believe man’s rejection is God’s protection?
When I talk to people about starting a business, their #1 fear is rejection.
I completely understand this fear and it held me back from being myself for years.
There are so many times in my life I was rejected and left completely heartbroken.
What I’ve realized is all of that was necessary in my life in order to give me my message to the world.
I have learned that Rejection is not an indication of talent or value.
Doors close to protect you and guide you to WHO you’re meant FOR and WHERE you’re meant to BE.
If you believe in what you have to OFFER, whether that be love, friendship, or your business superpower-don’t stop giving it out.
At the end of the day, I only want to play with people who want to play with me. I want you to feel empowered to offer up what you have and play with those that are ready for your greatness💗💕
