Hustling so hard you burn your light out has never appealed to me as a particularly awesome way to live. Yet, a high octane lifestyle celebrating sleep deprivation (come on people when I get a solid 7 hours sleep I feel like I’ve won the lottery, my energy is SEXY, and I’m a better human to my people), like some screwy badge of honour is often what is pushed upon folk as the only way to “get after it,” and get what you want out of life.
The awesome Denise shows us another way in her latest read, the way of a Chillpreneur, and I ADORE it and this woman – her way of working/ creating in a world fake leadership is refreshingly REAL, accessible and down to earth.
Divided into Four Parts, Mindset, Business Models, Money, and Marketing, so much ground is covered in this high impact book! Denise helps you find your chill when you crash into obstacles and your belief account is drained of funds. You know those times where you want to take out a “belief loan” at the Bank just to borrow some belief until you one day wake up and CHOOSE TO BELIEVE because …
People want your magic, not perfectionism
There’s so much I LOVED about this book! Running a biz or a side hustle sounds very complicated, and blow up the difficulty setting HARD, we’re talkin EPIC LEVEL HARD PEOPLE yet I adore how Denise shows us how seductively uncomplicated it can be if you CHOOSE it.
The mindset hacks for achieving greater abundance and chill were so good, and her ability to batch and schedule the content she creates ahead of time is FREEDOM! Batching videos, social media content, tasks (i.e emails) is such an awesome time and freedom hack - Denise does suggest no more than 6 months ahead though or else you’lll infect what you’ve created with STALE O RAMA vibes and you’ll fade to beige in terms of attraction. What a great way to honour and conserve your sexy energy for the truly important. When you’re running on spiky mania, panic and pure adrenaline you’ll get IT done sure, but at what cost? What will you miss? It’s like those people I see shovelling food into the big hole in their face MINDLESSLY. Robotic. Automatic. No magic. From a place of CHILL you bring ALL OF YOUR On FIREYAH WITH PURPOSE ENERGY into what you are creating which is more than a little bit awesome.
Denise reminds us that:
There are people less qualified than you doing the things you want to do simply because they decided to believe in themselves. Period. UNKNOWN
Top three things I'll be APPLYING from this awesome book - The mindset hacks on BELIEF and earning what you are worth (her work on money blocks is crazy good!) - Batch it baby! Creating some content ahead of time sounds like a good way to get my chill on, and find freedom. YAY! - The Five Essentials for a Chillpreneur Biz - Chapter 7
For those looking to boost their business success, this book is solid gold. It combines lessons on the all-important mindset with practical advice on organising and marketing a business.
Denise truly lives the Chillpreneur lifestyle but she's also human and doesn't set impossibly high standards for herself or her readers. AND she has a multimillion dollar business, so she's proved her approach works.
She's funny and inspiring and real.
Very highly recommended for those who want business success without destroying their health, relationships and peace of mind.
