Holiday Madness :: Does Your Family Trigger You Too?! { Tips Inside }

 Is it ever hard to go home for the holidays?

Do you feel like the NEW you collides with your old world and makes a big clash?

(please, please tell me I’m not alone!)

I just arrived back in Toronto to celebrate the holidays with my family. We were out tree shopping when I ran into a childhood friend of mine whom I hadn’t seen in almost a decade.

As my mom and I were sort of politely disagreeing (aka, bickering) away about which tree decorations we wanted, (I wanted the Christmas owls, she wanted just classic red ribbon) my old friend runs up to us and squeals the worst possible thing I could imagine…

“OMGOSH, YOU GUYS HAVEN’T CHANGED!”

It was then and there, I had a choice: feel triggered and irritated. OR, be conscious of my reaction, and remind myself ‘it’s okay. I know who I am. I know what I stand for. I have changed. I love myself.” 

I know how frustrating it can be when you go through your old personal transformation, but the people around you can’t seem to accept and embrace the new you. Being the face of your brand + business does bear quite the responsibility after all..

If you were the shy and quiet one like me, then I know you understand how brave I had to be to express my opinion, share my voice and well, decide to empower myself by buying the owl JUST because it makes me happy- and I don't need to justify that to anyone! (#sorrynotsorrymom)


ere are my 3 holiday tips for getting through the holidays:

#1- Be conscious + aware: be the observer in your life, not the reactor

If Aunt Carol or Grandpa Bill are triggering you by asking too many intrusive questions, doubting your business or your dreams, remember, firstly, you never need to justify yourself. And also try to see where they are coming from. What limiting beliefs are they projecting onto you ?

( Side note: my grandma, bless her soul, still always alludes to me finding a rich husband to take care of me. #welcometocentury21)

#2- Take inventory on all the ways in which you have changed / or totally stepped into your highest self

Do certain family members or friends always seem to treat you the same way? Do you fall into old patterns or family dynamics? Do they make comments like “oh, you’ll never change!” or "your sister Janet has got things figured out, why haven't you?!"

Take this as an opportunity to really step into your power and stand your ground. Be brave enough to be yourself.

#3- Use the holidays as a time for reflection. Dive into some journalling. Do some meditation. Really try to quiet your mind and get clear and ready for what awaits you in 2018!

For me, branding is about taking a stance about who you are, how you want to show up in the world. It’s about being bold. About unapologetically, being you. How can you be in the drivers seat of creating your brand perception?

Fall Down Once, Get Up Twice { Holiday Sale Is On!! }

If I had to sum up 2017 in a word, it would be growth.

24819248_10155255595789211_1016758106_o.jpg

I’ve gone through some major biz puberty, I had not one but TWO dark night of the soul phases, hit my highest month in business (and my lowest) and had some amazing awakenings.

Every time I fell down, I picked myself back up. And I want to share a little bit of my reflections with you.

Just over a year ago, I declared to my accountant in Canada, as we nibbled on these chocolates >>>>>>>>

“This year will be the best year in business! Get ready for the big numbers to roll in”!

Well….this year was NOT my most financially rewarding year, however I did accomplish so much that I am proud of:

 

:: I was featured in the international Shining Mentor Magazine (read it here- I'm on page 15!)

:: I created my first opt-in + sales funnel to automate my business (BIG milestone after being in business for 3 years)

:: I hit two record sales months in my business

:: I invested over $10,000 back into my business

:: I moved into my dream apartment in Paris <3

:: I co-hosted my 20th live workshop in Nice

Curating Your Branded Photoshoot

Curating Your Branded Photoshoot

 

Are you daydreaming or thinking about planning and upcoming photoshoot to show off your personality in your brand and business?

Here are 3 tips to consider when mapping out your branded photoshoot

 

#1 WHO AM I ?

What qualities or personality traits do I want to convey?

(ie. I am confident, I am zen, I am fun)

When branding Untamed Lifestyle & Business, it was paramount that I express my personality, that I am UNTAMED, BOLD, JOYFUL & FREE. 

Do you feel this when you look at my photos ?

#2  LOCATIONS SCOUT

what is your natural habitat ? Where do you spend your time ? Are you planning on travelling and hiring a photography abroad ? Is travel a part of your lifestyle ?

(example: I live in Paris and my most updated photos depict me enjoying life in paris!)

 

#3 WARDROBE

Considering peeking inside your closet to see what you have - but I always suggest a fun shopping spree where you can really feel your best in new clothes! There's something about wearing NEW clothes that just makes us feel like a star!

BONUS: Create a Pinterest Moodboard to collect images.

TRANSCRIPT (more or less)

Hey Guys, Brittany Hammond here, the founder of Untamed Lifestyle & Business. I just wanted to pop in and share this message that really pulled on a heart string this week

Wendy Williams:

She made a career out of gossiping and judging people (on her 8 year long talk show)

Whaaaatt ?? Wait, slow down!

Remember how I always say ......

understanding is the key to someone's heart

I used to watch Wendy Williams out of a guilty pleasure of the celebrity gossip but secretly I judged her as one of those Americans who made a career out of gossiping (think PEREZ HILTON)

Recently, as I embark on my own journey of self-discovery and honing MY message ...a little case of divine timing happened and one of Wendy's <3 to <3 interviews came up  on YouTube

She talks about her childhood, her parents said she was TALKING before she was WALKING,  that she was shushed + silenced

Even moving towards highschool, the girls were mean to her...and she just stayed focused on herself and began her radio career at age 16.

+ She was opinionated

she had a FIRE in her

+ she HAD to use her gift: her voice

Suddenly my judgement for her melted away because I appreciated the boldness + unfiltered-ness

The slogan of her show: SAY IT LIKE YOU MEAN IT

how POWERFUL is that for us today, in our day + age where we are tip toe around using our voice + expressing ourselves ?

She fully claims and owns:

"MY GIFT IS FEARLESSLY TALKING" 

She's taken her biggest struggle, her strongest points of personality + leveraged it into making a multiple decade-long career.

So, I want to leave you with this question:

How can you make yourself more understood by your audience. How can you tell your story in a way that makes YOU even more relatable ?

What is your God-given gift ? How can you leverage it ?
