"Love is the only way."
— Martin Luther King Jr.
Today as your feeds are filled with words from a man who impacted hundreds of lives and became a voice for thousands who didn't have a voice- remember as we honor Dr. King, that he didn't start out as Dr. King. He simply was a man who was willing to be used by God. His message wasn't new, he simply chose to use his voice to echo the words of Jesus. So why are we celebrating Dr. King today? Because he choose to live out the same call that you have on your life- TO LOVE.
When we choose to radically live out the call of the gospel, it changes hearts, lives, and even a nation. Now, it might not always look the same way, you may never have a US Holiday established in your name... but we challenge you today, don't allow yourself to just scroll past or reshare a quote, jump on a bandwagon and not be changed. Choose love. Love radically. Love in word and in action. For as 1 Peter 4:8 says, "Above everything, love one another deeply, because love covers over many sins."
And in other words, as our friend @bobgoff says:
“Love is never stationary. In the end, love doesn't just keep thinking about it or keep planning for it. Simply put: love does.” ❤️

Have you checked out my tv show- The Glow Show? No? Head on over to my Facebook page to watch it now! Link in bio.
Have you ever been in the situation where you are at the back end of the sales process and the potential client says something like... Ohh ehh I didn’t think it would cost that much... 😑
Have you ever thought how cool it would be if it went a little different... something like this... Oh yeah that sounds fair, so what’s next?
Here’s 1 of the biggest reasons why the above doesn’t happen... It’s not because the prospect thought it was too expensive... it’s because the prospect felt that the price of your product or service didn’t match or exceed the value they were getting... Just think about the last thing that you bought of value to you... and how you feel about it...
So, If this resonates with you then I want to offer you a chance to have a chat with me about how I can help you solve your problems around communicating and selling the value of your product or service.
If it’s not exactly what you after then it won’t cost you a $1. Is that cool?
Just head over to @ryan_cassano_ and click ‘Book’ for a free 20 minute strategy call.

I wanted to share this quote with you today! ⠀
Is the Holy Spirit nudging you today through this post? Lean into that and dig deeper! If you feel so led, tell us in the comments below what’s on your mind!
One conflict that every entrepreneur faces is deciding what to do with their marketing. There are ultimately three options: (1) hire someone to do it for you, (2) hire someone to consult / coach you how to do it, and (3) do it yourself. But… how do you know which one is the right one for you? 🤔⠀
Through working with my clients, there have been a few commonalities of why they hired me for social media management or why they hired me for social media consulting. If you’re looking to hire SOMEONE to do SOMETHING with your marketing, this is what I’ve found…⠀
⭐️ YOU SHOULD HIRE SOMEONE TO DO IT FOR YOU IF…⠀
- You don’t know how to do it and don’t want to learn how to do it.⠀
- You don’t have the time for it.⠀
- You don’t like doing it.⠀
⭐️ YOU SHOULD HIRE SOMEONE TO CONSULT YOU IF…⠀
- You enjoy doing it but know you need an outside expert to properly guide you.⠀
- You want to continue being the face of your brand and keep everything personal.⠀
What are you planning to do with your marketing this year? 💻

“Use me, God. Show me how to take who I am, who I want to be, and what I can do, and use it for a purpose greater than myself.” MLK
I chased the corporate ladder for years and all it did was leave me anxious, stressed and on the brink of hospitalization for an eating disorder. I knew there had to be a better way. I vowed that we (God and I) have to make working from home on my terms work. Because I can't get a job that doesn't allow me to take care of myself during the day spiritually and physically and serve the people in my life well. So, I became devoted to becoming a virtual assistant and art director. To plant twice as many seeds in peoples lives and give them their time back so they too can take care of themselves.

"Creativity is not limited by artistic ability; creativity goes beyond a paintbrush or a guitar. It is problem-solving, connecting, presenting, mothering, inventing, etc. Creativity is the business woman who so beautifully balances work and life, the mother who problem solves and creates minute-to-minute in order to cultivate a home of love for her children, the consultant who has the admirable gift and art of conversation and connection. The writer, the musician, the poet, and the painter lie in the same green pasture as equals with these professions. God created all of us in His image: creators."
— Michelle Enriquez from her article in Volume 3 of the #delightandbemagazine, Called To Be Creative
One of our favorite articles in volume 3 is this article by @wanderbyhand. Not only is she an INCREDIBLE artist (seriously, go follow her work right now because she is GIFTED!), but she shared about WHY we are #calledtocreate. And let me tell ya'll, her words sink deep. this is our heartbeat. 💗

Are you the type of person who knew exactly what you wanted to do since you were a kid? Or are you still trying to figure things out?
For me, becoming an entrepreneur in my 40’s was never the plan. I was financially “comfortable”, I had been in my industry for 20 years, and I figured this is where I’d end up retiring one day. Benefits, paid time off, all the things we’re told comes with a “good job”.
But if I’m going to be totally honest, I got all my value from my career. You see, I was a lousy student my whole life, but I was a rockstar employee. I climbed that ladder quickly and was pretty successful. So work made me feel good, it was my biggest accomplishment.
Here’s the thing- I was great at what I did- but I wasn't my authentic self. I was great at playing the part, but playing the part is not living your best life.
Twenty years into my career, with a 2 year old and one on the way- I discovered Young Living essential oils. We were always sick and I was desperate. Well this box of oils totally transformed our lives and I ended up falling in love with the company and our new lifestyle. So much so, that I decided to make a career out of it!
The universe was listening; on October 16th, 2017 I was laid off. YIKES! Careful what you wish for! Or at least make sure it’s what you really want!
The first year was a total culture shock, no set schedules, days running into each other. Trying to figure this whole “work for yourself” thing.
But I can say the best part of it is the FREEDOM. I still hustle my booty off- but its for our dreams and goals. Every day is different and so many hats are worn as an entrepreneur; I’m always learning, growing, and stretching myself. I have cried and wanted to give up. But I always catch myself- because today my dreams are WAY BIGGER than my fears.
So tell me…Is there a part of you that thinks “I’m made for bigger things than this?”
Do you ever have moments where you completely doubt not only yourself, but the life you've built around you? ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
Well, about two months ago I had one of the most profound conversations with the most unexpected person, my dad. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
We talked about the inner struggle we all go through when we're struggling with something so damn personal. There was a moment where I thought the conversation was going to shift to humour or a lecture (like it always does!) but instead, he asked me. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
"What do you know? What do you know for sure that is true." ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
I sat there dumb founded, and he continued. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
"I want you to do something. I want you to go home, get out a notebook and start writing all the things you know to be 100% true. All of them. Don't leave anything out and don't let ego or doubt effect what you write. Start with the obvious things, 'Cinty loves me, my family loves me, I am a designer, I have a business'... But then take it another step and go deeper... 'I am creative, I am intelligent, I am kind' and keep writing until you have written all that you know to be true."
It was the most profound experience ever because my dad, (who is soooo not this kinda person) saw the value in this exercise and believed in it enough to share it with me. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
Needless to say, this exercise has served me over the most hectic few months and it's helped me focus and hone in on living my truth rather than focusing on the doubts. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
What would your's say if you did it? Share them below or put a '<3' in the comments if you will or have done this so we can encourage others to do the same. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀

Working from home sometimes means eight straight hours of fighting with web design tools and utter frustration. #ithappens
But it also means great joy when your blog finally looks like you want it to and when you watch those months and years of effort begin to pay off.
When I started blogging and vlogging back in 2014, I really had no idea what I was doing, or where it could lead. This career picked me, and I'm so grateful God has led me on this journey. I still don't know where it's all going, but He does 😊
Comfort. It’s a necessity if I’m going to get “work” done.
Physical comfort is a given. Comfy chair. Comfy pants. Warm socks. Hot drink.
Mental comfort, though, is just as important. Before sitting down, my space needs to be clutter-free, everything in its place, ready to go.
If it feels chaotic, I feel chaotic and I know it won’t lead to my best work. Taking a few minutes to straighten up makes a world of difference in productivity.
What comforts do you need to be your best at work?

So I woke up early this morning with a lot of energy and feeling positive, but then I opened Instagram and there where #bluemonday posts everywhere. So... Do you really believe in this day? I feel it's just another marketing strategy to increase sells after Christmas, don't you think?
I strongly believe that we create our own path and that if you think you are going to have a terrible day you probably will have one, as your #mindset is focused on that.
The truth is I even got inspired with this blue Monday thing and created this beautiful #colorpalette which is a reflection of my day. I think these colors will look beautiful on a #beautybranding , they are calm but cheerful at the same time, what do you think?
What do you think of when you see these colors? How was your #bluemonday? Let me know in the comment section 👇🏽👇🏽 #selfcare#loveyourself#womenempowerment#inspiration#green#slowlife#graphicdesign#notbluemonday

The biggest thing I’ve discovered about myself since working from home is how much my surroundings impact my work. I’m not one to work from the dining room table or the couch. I have a room dedicated to my office, decorated in line with my brand and organized so it’s easy to find and grab what I need at all times. Our house has been in disarray this past year, after putting it on the market, pulling it, and installing upgrades. I didn’t realize how much anxiety this was causing for me. Today, we had workers here yet again finalizing a job they started in early December. I’m just ready for them to be done—to have my house back. I know I’m probably more type A than most, but as a homebody I just love the comforts of a clean, well designed space. It makes me feel calm, inspired, and on track. Tell me: how do you work best? What spurs creativity for you and where do you need to be to get your best work out in the world?

This is me in my happy place.
As a girl who grew up in Alberta, you'd think I'd be used to icy cold temperatures that make my face hurt when I step outside, but it comes as a shock to me every single year.
Living here my whole life is pretty much my worst nightmare. Don't get me wrong, I'm SUPER grateful to be Canadian. But I've gone on a beachy vacation ALMOST every winter since I was about 10, and I have never been good at coming home.
As an adult, I'd always come home thinking "life should be better than this." It didn't make sense to me to work 50 weeks of the year, just to wait for those two weeks of fun and freedom. I also didn't know there was really any other way.
I think it was this constant yearning for more freedom that made me so open to starting my own business when I discovered people were actually working from their laptops and traveling the world.
It's funny, actually. It's 6:30 am and here I sit at my dining room table, coffee pot gurgling away, creating content and striking things off my to-do list before I start a full day at my day job. Is it more freedom right now? No. Would I rather be doing anything else? Hell no.
I finally feel like I'm on exactly the right path I need to be. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
I'm definitely not one of those naturally peppy morning people. I used to sleep until the last possible minute that would still allow me to throw some makeup on before taking off to work.
But with goals as big as mine, I don't even question the 5am alarm clock or the occasional late night, working away with only the glow of my laptop (sorry, eyeballs). ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
I love what I'm doing and where I'm going. I'm right where I need to be.
Now tell me, in a few words, what's your why?
I'm running a FREE challenge on January 28 where I'm going to teach you how to write copy that converts. I'll walk you through the first step of clearly defining your audience, all the way through to showing up with confidence and writing copy that attracts the right people. Link in bio🖤

When your brain is trying to solve a problem, or come up with a creative solution to a project, it cross references the information you have about the problem at hand with all your memories in your subconscious.⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
So with that in mind, think of when was the last time you carefully thought about what you want to consume, to keep stocking up that memory bank of yours? ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
Just like our bodies run better on healthy food, water and regular movement, the more inspiring and interesting things you experience, the better chance you have of coming up with better solutions and producing higher quality work. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
In my Creative Momentum model, I call this phase Fuel. It's all about filling up the tank with the best quality fuel for inspiration you can find. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
For me, this can be taking myself to an exhibition, going to watch live music, but most often, I'll do this by digging into a great book.⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
What is your favorite way to fill yourself up with inspiring new things? 👇⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀

Some people say when you got folks hating on you, that’s when you know you’re doing something right. I don’t know about all that but I do know that seeking universal popularity is a futile struggle.
While we all need support, we don’t need approval.
Don’t take it personally when people don’t appreciate your effort. I’ve learned that not everybody wishes me well and that’s okay because I wish myself all of the success in the world.
Don’t fight with your haters.
They may actually admire you.
They just can’t handle your light.
So keep shining and let other people shine alongside you.
One person’s success does not mean your failure.
Nobody is perfect.
We all have trials.
And when we see someone overcome their trials, it should remind you that your dreams are attainable, too.
Don’t let hate be the reason you give up on yourself.
Stop the hate.
Get laser focused and keep on slaying!!!⚡️☀️
Love over everything!!😘😭🙏🏻

Happy Friday sweet Friends! It has been a few crazy days for me this week. My Mom has been having some serious problems with her vision. We got her into the ophthalmologist for an emergency visit. Thankfully it was a bunch of small problems creating a bigger problem. Luckily, there are a few small fixes to help her.
The following day my Dad had two teeth extracted. Everything went fine until we got home. We couldn’t stop the bleeding. We were going through gauze in packs. After 3 office calls & then talking to the doctor on the phone. We packed his incision with Lipton tea bags of all things & that worked. I guess tea has a clotting agent called tannic acid. Who knew!
I am not sure if any of you are caregivers for your parents. I am so thankful for the time that God has given me with them. But, it’s so hard. However, I would have it no other way. They would do the same for me in an instant. I savor every minute with them.
This verse has helped me in so many stressful moments with my Mom & Dad. Some days it’s a constant prayer. I tell God my worry in a prayer and then I thank Him for sending me peace. It always comes at some point throughout the day. Not at that exact moment but it always comes.
Philippians 4:6-7(NIV) Do not be anxious about anything, but in every situation, by prayer and petition, with thanksgiving, present your requests to God. And the peace of God, which transcends all understanding, will guard your hearts and your minds in Christ Jesus.
Wishing you a worry free night filled with His peace!
PS: I have a blog at GraceInThisSpace.com called “Succulent Wreath, A Step by Step Planting Guide”. I also have a Holiday Home Tour & a post called “Christmas in my Heart”.
