Happy New Year Pearls!

I know we are all gearing up or at least in the beginning of our New Year Resolutions that include health and business, so let's talk about how these two are closely related.  As a educator, entrepreneur and personal trainer I know that both your health and business require Self Discipline, Building Business Muscle and Accountability to be successful! 

Strong: Self discipline is the key to progress! In the beginning, form is not as important as continuing with the exercise reps. Once you start your exercise regimen, don’t get caught up with whether you can do a plank exactly like the Halle Berry regimen. Link to her video. Planks build your core and stamina.  Be sure to learn how to do the plank properly so that you are getting the most optimal results from your efforts but don't fret if at first your are not performing perfectly. Just focus on being consistent with your exercises to enable you to build your capacity for the exercise, develop the appropriate form and increase self discipline. I can provide testament that being consistent with your routine will give you the strength to continue and become self disciplined in the regimen that you have created to accomplish your health goals.  Link to Business and Self Discipline. This same strategy can be applied to your business goals. Trust the process, keep moving forward, tweaking as warranted but staying true to the goal is Self Discipline. Self Discipline keeps you STRONG!

Resilient: Building Muscle increases the amount of muscle on your body, and increases metabolism that allows you to burn fat while at rest. Muscle uses food and nutrients, making it a gigantic calorie burner. The more muscle you have, the more calories you will burn without even moving. Lifting weights will build muscle that can burn fat while you are resting. Muscle aids in your body’s ability to endure stress better, in turn increasing your resilience. If we apply this strategy to our business goals, it's safe to assume that building your muscle in your craft is conducting research, attaining additional training, networking and remaining a teachable expert in your field.  Check out this link on business muscle. Building Business Muscle  Building Muscle in your expertise is what increases your RESILIENCE!


Luminous: Accountability helps you to shine during your journey. Building that community of those that support (not sabotage) your health goals. Your health/fitness tribe is what will help you shine in your journey. They can provide that encouragement that you need to push further and they can also call you to the carpet when you are slacking on your goals.  I'd be the first to admit that an accountability partner is what keeps me honest and true to my goals whether it's my health or professional ambitions. I am naturally a competitive person so my ego may get the best of me when it comes to my health goals especially. Professionally, it's a different story in that I can't control all of the variables involved so I may shy away from certain obstacles without an accountability partner to keep me accountable.   I consider my accountability partners as litmus tests to whether I am worth my salt. How are you accountable? Accountability is what helps you to be Luminous!

How are you moving towards your goals this New Year 2020; hopefully with Self Discipline, Muscle and Accountability.

PEARLs and TAXES

Good day Pearls , Now that the holiday season has come to an end our next big endeavor is TAX TIME! Of course, tax time tends to overwhelm the best of us but fiscal responsibility for business owners and individuals should not be frightful as long as you are preparing yourself accordingly. Though you may be quite familiar with filing your own taxes, don’t assume you are an expert with your small business tax responsibilities. In 2020, Pearls are Financially Strong, Resilient and Luminous. We, women small business owners need to ensure that we are rendering our businesses/side hustles healthy in all fiscal avenues. To prepare for this blog entry, I took the opportunity to speak with a Certified Public Accountant in the DC Metropolitan area with over 20+ years of experience to give some pointers on keeping your hustle solid and fiscally sound. Mr. Robert L. Waller, CPA/CFE , was eager to provide direction for Women Small Business Owners on a few questions regarding responsibiliti

Pearls, Pods, Purpose

Dear Pearls,  Thank you for patiently awaiting the next blog post of Nacr3! Covid-19 has been a major interruption in the flow of everyone's lives from our children to our elderly. Everyone has been impacted in a major way in all areas of their livelihoods: socio-economic, mental health, emotional health, family and friend relationships, and physical health. No one can doubt that it's highly unlikely that things will return to be 100 percent the same as our Pre-COVID lives, but Pearls this world-wide pandemic (both Covid-19 and BLM) has taken a toll on us all and we should look to recollect and emerge as the Pearl you are! Just think of COVID/BLM as the irritant our little oyster needed to create the best that is within us.  During the brief hiatus, every other day, week, and month I continued to contemplate the scope and sequence of the blog yearly outline. The first 2 weeks of March until the present day has shown me a few things about my own Nacr3. And I figured that I can&#

Who are you loving, Pearl?

This month is known worldwide as the month where grand gestures are made to show someone how much you love them. February is the time of year outside of Christmas were people have this weird sense of obligation to spend the most resources as a strange, but familiar yet arbitrary indicator of devotion for someone other than oneself.  Though the origins of this day only continue to perpetuate some sort of lovemaking whether committed or casual in today's practice, it is this current day and time that people, more specifically women, need to spend this day practicing Self Care, the love and commitment to oneself. I am sure you've heard me say it before self-care is the foundation of your process/journey and your destination. Self-Care is significantly tied to your entrepreneurial journey in that it's a mirror of your mental health and entrepreneurial health.  Your health status is a byproduct of your self-care efforts.  Have you assessed your mental health status lately?
