Show Notes: Untraditional Strategies Your Business Coach Never Told You
Welcome to the fit and faith podcast. It is an acronym representing founders, innovators, and trailblazers who are looking to live a life wholly, fully, authentically, and truly fit as space for us to connect on the raw real stories of mind, body, and soul alignment of entrepreneurs in kingdom leaders. I'm your host, Tamra and dress.
And this podcast, isn't like the cookie cutter interview experience. I've been coined the entrepreneurial rabbi. And so we do go there unscripted, no matter how far wide, deep or high there is. My desire is to see people rise from the inside, out, into their greatest calling, by sharing their truest stories.
And tips as a purpose activator and brand builder. I believe our successes and failures are derived from who and whose we are not what we do, but strategy and vision are equally as important to the mission. So let's cut to the chase together and get fit in faith. I was about to go change right before I started this, and then I decided.
Nah, this is me and all my glory. I just got done going to last eating dinner on the palapa and hanging out by the pool, or like my threat made me a delightful, not alcoholic beverage. Cause I haven't been drinking for a couple of years, but I was supposed to get changed while I was daydreaming about businesses.
That your regular coach doesn't tell you. And I thought why I always say to show up vulnerably show up authentically. Well, this is me and Nico coming to you in front of Frieda, who I also have tattooed on my arm. Are there things you didn't know about your traditional business coach slash Christian?
Best bestie. Right here we go. Three to five. I'm saying three to five. Cause oftentimes if I start with three end up elaborating, if I started with five and then I went under, I'm giving myself some wiggle room. Okay. So here we are three business tips that your traditional business coach would never tell you.
First off, it's less about time management and more about time protection. And I say it's it's is everything your whole life. Everyone is so worried about this work life balance. You guys does it. Like I have it figured out. I don't, but guess what I am overflowing, my time is abundant. I approach my time as if it is mine and not somebody else's, regardless of what my schedule says, recognizing this is so critical.
Protect your time. If you protect yourself first, you're going to protect your community. When it's time for them to do the thing you want them to do. I am all about family. I am all about friends. I am all about faith and adventure and travel. And if I didn't protect my time, I couldn't be showing up for you right now in this very moment.
So here I am, and here you are protecting your time over something that is pouring into you rather than detracting from you. Number two.
This one is all from this week and it's so see God is so good. He's so good that I didn't get changed. And this is number two, you then in the rest, even in the refresh, he is building. So imagine this and beach side getting a massage. And I tell you all of this, not. Show a fancy lifestyle or gloat, but to show you as a travel preneur that you can too, you literally can do.
And exactly what I'm doing. I've met with clients all week. I've had my community has gotten together this week. We've had team meetings this week. I've had new intro calls this week. I'm still doing all the things I miss my babies and he'll see them tomorrow. Manyana para Pata right now. Put up. But right now I'm practicing my Spanish and I'm showing up for you.
So imagine I'm on the ocean. I hear just the beautiful waves. I'm getting a massage next to my mom. I told you already about the passing of her mom, my Nana. And so this trip has been all around protecting our time because I wanted to protect her mental health. Right. Purpose, purpose time. So I'm getting a massage.
I'm trying to just tune in. I'm not very good at meditating. If you couldn't imagine that about me, I'm kind of like, go, go, go. So tuning in to the waves. And all of the sudden I start hearing like a dinging hammer and a saw like a big Saul on buildings that are surrounding us on the other side of the beach.
And I tried very hard not to hear them tried very hard. And then I thought to my. If I focus in on the waves, if I fix, I focus, which you guys know this coined phrase, this is not my own. If you fix your focus on the thing that you're intending to hear on the thing that you're intending to do on the thing that you're intending to bring into your life manifestation, right?
Focusing on the waves, allow me to have this serene realization. That I am at rest in this moment. My body isn't moving. My mind was clearly moving, but my body wasn't moving and God was still building. He's been building my business all week. He's been building my business all year. He's already ahead of me building my business, which leads me exactly to number three, actually four, but I'm skipping.
If you follow the God winks of your life, if you follow the opportunities that just coincidentally doors open, you meet people. Those are called godwits when you're looking for them, when you're on search for them, they show up. So I have this prayer all the time that God open every door that I meant to go into and close every door that I.
'cause what happens, especially as an entrepreneur shiny light, right? Johnny like show me the shiny light. I go to the shiny light. That's not the way we need to operate. So under time protection, right? The first one that we were talking about under the understanding of rest, you get to step into the God week into the coincidence, into the ferition of his plan over your life.
Simply by being. And now, you know everything about me, it's screams stillness, just kidding everything about me, screams movement and dancing and fun. However, I believe that there is a compound experience of stillness. It's a stillness of our spirit. It doesn't necessarily mean that it's a stillness of our feet and complacency company.
Sitting inside of the boat being still and watching everyone else launch propel, be brave, courageously step out of the boat, into their calling. Doesn't equip you, not even from a learning perspective of whoop, they might fall, they might fall. You're right, but that's not your walk God's already, before you in this.
So I encourage you as an entrepreneur. Don't get too comfortable. Don't get complacent. Don't mistake those things for stillness, because stillness is a spirit, a mindset, a heart set towards your life. You must activate, you must get under the boat, do the dang thing, right. And realize as you're doing the thing, you got to go back to number one, protect your time.
Gotta go back to number two. He's always building, even when you're asleep. And I am such a proponent or creating automation and systems and hiring a team. So people and things are working when you're not working. Right. I fully could not do what I'm doing without my team. And I am 1000% open about that with my communities, because without them, I would, I love my mind would be about a million miles a minute.
Like it all our ways. They keep me, they actually protect my time. So if you're not going to protect your time, hire someone who is thank you, Janice. Thank you, Jesus. Right? So those are the three. And then one more. Cause why not? You do not need a big platform to start when God tells Peter to get out of the boat.
He didn't say, hold on, wait, don't get out of the boat until I break all the other people around. We told her why. We told her we're watching. Cause what happens when Peter gets out of the boat confidently, he walks on water and then he missed steps by moving his eyes without fixing his focus. As we talked about before staying eyes on the prize eyes on Jesus, he flounders and guess what?
We're going to flounder in the public eye, but wouldn't it be so much better to found her in the. With the people who know you intimately and are cheering you on and are ready to see you thrive and are going to still applaud you. When you get to the next place, start with the one, emphasize the one in your life.
Everything will change every business plan that you could possibly make. Always start with one person. What do they need? What do they look. What opportunity do they need in order to improve and literally thrive in their life? You might be that opportunity. Your key that you're holding right now in that boat is the key that they need to get out of their own.
Do not block somebody else's blessing by not doing these precious things in business. These things that most businesses. Don't tell you. I would love to know if one of your business coaches has told you something like this, maybe to another extent, but super focused in on your faith. First, I have a five H founder model that I'll tell you more about another day, but head heart home, right?
Head, heart, home health, and handbag. They have to be an order. There's a symmetry that's happening, but if you are pursuing handbag, You liked that, right? Finances, you know, I know the intent. You're going to jump out of the boat in order for you to have that prosperity and abundance that God has promised for you.
That is true. But remember to smart start small. If God gave you a million dollars tomorrow, and you haven't been able to tie the 10% of the hundred, or you haven't been able to diligently maintain. For the thousand or the 10,000 or the hundred thousand, how can he bring you something that you cannot steward?
These are nuggets that I hope you hold tight to. I hope you go play with, I hope you focus on. I hope you grow from, I hope you resonate with, and if you do bring the bowels, share the thing, do the thing. Point to the links below whatever. At the end of the day. I love you. You are loved. I see you. And yet you're fully known by God, the father.
This is a time for you to rise, but you gotta do these things too in the process. All right, I'm here to cheer you on, send me a DM. I'd love to. Hi, I still find it wild to say out loud that I'm a two time bestselling author and have three published books and more to come in the next year. You'll surreal.
And yet exactly where I thought I'd be when I started this podcast in journey fit and faith was a way to share my story, but I knew it had to be documented differently in the process of my writing, the entire story I shared, just one aspect in a women's devotional book called she writes for him stories of resilient faith.
I talked about nice shame story. And the testimonies that came from that one chapter was the affirmation I needed to keep pursuing the whole story. The barrel book that released last fall called always becoming sex, shame and love. Bracey I know. And not what you think you probably hear on a Christian podcast, but y'all, we have to start talking about the real things, the real conversations.
It's no different than this podcast where we talk about the real things. It's the deep stuff. It's the true stuff that matters. And whilst talking about business is awesome. And what I show up to do on a daily, as a kingdom entrepreneur and business coach, it's only a fraction of the story. My second best seller was released right after this personal development book.
