Manifesting Gifts & Parking Spots But Not Actual Money? Here’s How To Shift That

manifest parking spots not money lucky bitch money bootcamp

Last year, I suffered from Parking Spot Syndrome.

Perhaps you’ve heard of it? If not, allow me to paint a picture for you—

Scene: New-Age hipsters drive to a trendy new spot with a conscious DJ and jun on tap—but wait! Where to park?

“It’s okay, we’ll manifest a parking spot!” one says. What does that mean? To some, it means actually visualizing someone leaving a prime spot, and holding that open space for their car.

It can also mean not a damn thing at all.

I’m not knocking using the Law of Attraction to secure a parking spot. But, if the “parking spot” vibration level is where you’re primarily utilizing your manifestation skill… what are you not using it on?

The Ridiculously Simple Thing You Can Do to Double Your Income

The Ridiculously Simple Thing You Can Do To Double Your Income

It’s official: In January 2017, I’ve made more than double what I normally make in a month.

This means that I am… ::deep breath:: on track to make six figures this year.

(Close to. $98,832k, to be exact.)

How did I do this?

Did I work twice as much? Did I spend twice as much time answering emails? Did I have half as much free time playing with my love and my tarot cards?

No. I did one simple thing, and it made all the difference.

What’s Up Next for Live All of You in 2016!

I did not want to post this video.
 
Hell, I do not want to post this video, right now.
 
Ugh! Cringe! Blarg!
 
It all goes through my head:
 
“Stop saying ‘um,’ stop playing with your hair, stop saying ‘like,’ why are you so bad at explaining things to a camera…”
 
I still can’t decide if I absolutely hate filming videos and I shouldn’t do it, or if this means I should dive into it and two years from now I’ll be like: “Wow, I’ve come so far! Look at me on my come-so-far throne!”
 
I don’t know. But, I’ve got to try. I feel pulled to try.
 
My word for 2016, since words are a thing now and I like words, is ENGAGE. I want to feel engaged, alive, present in everything I’m doing—whether that’s reading The New Yorker in my bathtub, or speaking at a conference. I want to be there, embodying whatever serves in the alchemy of the moment.
 
So, this video is where I explain what I have planned for 2016 for Live All of You (the first half of 2016 at least, apparently, according to Socially Awkward Video Amy). I actually am really excited to refresh my site, continue sharing more, and do it all from love.
 
So, cheers to that. No really, cheers, I need a drink.

The 12 Nonfiction Books That Have Changed How I Live In the World

12 nonfiction books image

As I was purchasing the Kindle version of Big Magic today (note: everything Elizabeth Gilbert writes/says/does should be on an artist’s priority list of conscious consumption), I realized I hadn’t written about my own list of books that have changed my life.

So with no further adieu, here they are!

These books have completely helped me upgrade my communication, relationships, business and health in the last few years, and I’m super grateful for them.

Soothe Your Tax Fears: Shoeboxed (and Their “Magic Envelopes”) Saves the Day for Entrepreneurs

Tax time is coming up (I can’t bear to call it a “season”). :) And it’s safe to say I dislike doing taxes as much as (if not more than) the rest of us. Especially as an independent worker, it can be super confusing and difficult to figure out if I’m submitting correctly, if I’m accounting for everything, etc.

It can feel so overwhelming that some of us don’t even get around to doing our taxes (eep!).

Shoeboxed soothes these tax anxieties, and they’re a company I can get behind 100%. More than 1,000,000 businesses use Shoeboxed to scan and organize receipts and business cards, create expense reports, track mileage and more—all digitally! There’s a DIY plan, but for people who don’t even want to scan their own receipts in, Shoeboxed offers “magic envelopes” to mail in all your receipts so they can take care of everything for you.

Here are some of their listed benefits:

  • No more scanning or data entry: You’ll never waste another minute in front of a scanner or in an Excel spreadsheet
  • Maximize every reimbursement: Whether it’s a business trip or federal tax filing, every receipt is always at your fingertips
  • Submit from anywhere: Send documents in the mail, with your phone, via e-mail or right from your scanner or web browser
  • Export everywhere: Export to QuickBooks, Wave, Xero, Outright, Evernote, Excel and many more…
  • Your data is safe and secure: Shoeboxed uses 256-bit SSL security, the same as major US banks

I did a mini-interview with Mike Hourigan of Shoeboxed to find out how their platform can help us passionate workers and full-life-livers not feel so… taxed (yup, went there) around this time of year.

(And just for you: click this link or any link in this article to Shoeboxed, and Live All of You readers will receive 50% off their first two months after their free trial ends.) Sweet!

Your Ticket to a Freedom-Filled Life: Start a Website in 7 Mins

freedom filled life how to start a website

I want to share with you one of the biggest ways I add more independence, creative freedom, empowerment and fulfillment to my life.

This has honestly been the “ticket” to the life I was wanting but not fully living, and has been paying dividends for a couple of years now.

Today, I want to show exactly (complete with screenshots!) how to get it—by starting a website that honors your authenticity in 7 minutes.

Your #1 ticket is your website.

If you put the energy, heart and soul into a website that reflects who you are and what you can offer in the world, the life you want is within reach.

This is not about having a 4-hour workweek; though some weeks might end up like that, you’ll definitely be putting in the hours to make this work.

Even as someone who runs a Manifest Like a Mofo course, I’m here to tell you—manifesting and “doing the work” aren’t really that dissimilar.

The thing is, you need both: intention and action. You need the woo-woo and the work—you can’t have one or the other and expect the full-blown, inspiring results you have your heart set on. If it makes you more comfortable, you can call woo-woo “commitment,” or what have you.

Whatever way you sling it, your intention channeled through action will show the universe exactly what you want.

If you are willing to be vulnerable, to be of service to others, and to stay passionate (and figure out what can bring you back to that place when you forget)—you’ll receive it.

You might think building a website is a huge endeavor. I’m not going to lie to you—it can be. But the sooner you get over your feelings of overwhelm and get something out there, the faster you’ll start to see results and start living the life you really want.

Whether you want to start building out your first-and-last-name domain name, or you’re ready to start an online niche site from a burst of lightning idea that keeps wanting to be birthed—here’s how you can get your business off the ground and in the air in 7 minutes or less.

To make it fun, we’ll set a timer and countdown from 7:00 minutes. Aaaaand go!
