Rest is Required

Rest is required to sustain life and vitality. Even the most energetic and driven people MUST rest. You can’t buy your way out of unplugging, sleeping, or caring for your body. Those who dare to try are met with huge consequences. I know, I was one of those people who “didn’t have time to rest.”

If we don’t honor ourselves in human form and the beautiful miraculous bodies we have, the Universe will force us to rest and nurture ourselves eventually. None of us are superhuman and above needing regular tune-ups and TLC (my initials, making my story even more obnoxious). In fact, the higher performing you are, the more tune-ups and TLC you require to avoid total burnout, breakdown, or worse irreversible health issues.

My fiancé Mike is a high-performance luxury car designer. He says, “the higher performing the car, the more maintenance, time, and attention it requires.”

What’s interesting and sad, is I find the highest performing people, take the least amount of time for rest and recovery. Their own inner driver to succeed actually sabotages them. Once again, that was me.

If you want to accomplish BIG things, you must put self-care at the top of your to-do list. I always thought if I did this, I would fall behind. It’s the exact opposite. Putting my self-care as my #1 is allowing me to soar.

Wishing you wealth, health, and worth, always.

Saturday Success Tip With Tiff!

READY FOR A SATURDAY SUCCESS TIP WITH TIFF⭐️⭐️

Here it is!

99% of businesses and people have competitors initially, and 100% indefinitely. Dig in and discover what sets you and/or your business apart from the pack. I recommend doing this exercise for both yourself (as you are your own unique brand) and for your business (if you have one or want to start one).

In my experience, question prompts help most people find clear answers, as it can be different from “self-brag.” Here are some to get you started:
1️⃣ Why should someone work with you over the hundreds of other qualified people?
2️⃣ What drove you to enter this niche or career?
3️⃣ What are the 3 most common things customers, bosses, and co-workers say about you?
4️⃣ Who is your ideal customer? The type of person you would love to help times a million of them, and WHY?
5️⃣ What is the biggest frustration in your market niche and/or industry? How do you aim to fix it?

Screenshot these questions or copy and paste them into your “notes” app (if it lets you). If you’re old school, break out your journal and answer away.

Stop Judging Your Path

STOP ✋ 🛑

PLEASE STOP judging your financial status, your career, your business, your current lifestyle, based on what you see on social media or on people who make #allthethings sound easy.

All of us are on a unique path. A path that is specially designed for us by the Universe, and our ability to surrender and be open to direction. YES, some peoples’ journeys are filled with less trauma and drama than others…while some have so much it’s beyond comprehension.

I was abused for most of my childhood and teens. I was raped by someone I knew. I’ve been sexually assaulted several times in the workplace. I lost 3/4 of my net worth that I worked my ass off to create and save. I could go on and on. My point is, my path was filled with more than enough roadblocks, and I could have easily set back, given up, and played the victim for life (people would have totally understood). God, the Universe, my Angels had a different plan that I couldn’t always see. I was meant to go through all of that shit, so I could show up for you and me TODAY.

When you catch yourself wishing that your path, your process was as glamours, easy, fun, and sexy as “ms boss babe x, y z” I want you to remember two things:

1️⃣ They are full of shit and only showing you the highlight reel, so unfollow them and go follow inspiring-empowering women who share it all @thechampagnediet,@badassbusinessbabe,@leanne.oaten, and of course ME 🤗@projectme_with_tiffany.

2️⃣Your journey is what it’s supposed to be. If mine was all 🌈 and 🦋, there would be no ProjectME; I wouldn’t spend hours of my time each week mentoring abused women for free; I wouldn’t have the compassion and awareness to educate and empower women to be financially wealthy and free; most importantly I wouldn’t be me.

Wishing you wealth, health, and worth always.

The Top of Mind “Why”

QUICK! Tell me the first thing that pops into your mind. Why do you want to be financially wealthy?

That top of mind “why” is our current inner driver. This answer will change over the years, especially when you reach different levels of wealth.

My current “why” is my passion for traveling the world 🌍. I sit down at least once a month and plan out my next trips, and add new places to my vision board. This exercise relights my inner driver. It gets me motivated and refocused.

Your personal “why” is vital to your success. It is what will get you to keep going when you hit roadblocks (which you will), will smack you out of a slump, and reenergize you when you need it the most.

There is no wrong or shameful answer to your “why.” Please don’t judge what comes up. Many women I work with feel guilty if their why seems “self-indulgent” or “luxurious.” I want your why to be self indulgent and luxurious, as your “why” is all about you!

Don’t confuse your why with your company mission or life mission. My ProjectME with Tiffany company mission is to help women become financially wealthy and independent through education, empowerment, and mentorship. So yes this greatly motivates me, but it isn’t my#allaboutme “why.”

Over the years and various income levels my why has shifted from buying a luxury condo, to flying first class, to bi-monthly massages, to buying a 7-Figure house…yours may be to get out of debt, to buy a new car, to get Botox, a breast reduction, to work from home in your robe (like me 🤗). Whatever answer came up for you, embrace it and own it.

This is a judgement-free zone.

Wisdom on Wealth and Worth

I always strive to bring you wisdom on wealth and worth. Wisdom doesn’t just come from the successes I’ve had, it also comes from all of the mistakes I’ve made both in life and throughout my career.

This week is about the power of first impressions and perceptions. Yes, I now own a lot of nice things and I have a lot of luxury bags, sunglasses, shoes, etc… Even when I was making 75k/year, I didn’t buy these luxury items as I saw them as a waste of money, based on my income level. That all changed one month when I was around 26 years old.

I was working in pharmaceutical sales, and a new counterpart got hired on my team. She was 10-years older than me and had great success. I admired her effortless sales style and her experience. She asked me about a month after we met, “Why do you carry around a low-end, worn-out work bag 💼?” I said, “ because it works and fits all of my stuff.” She kindly nodded in a sisterly way and said, “Let me give you a piece of advice….when people see you coming into these high-end offices with a ratty looking bag and Payless shoes, it undermines the quality of what you are selling and your authority on it.”

At that age, I didn’t quite get what she was saying, but I agreed to her experiment to go buy a designer bag (@coach was the IT bag back then) and some heels made of something other than plastic and rubber 😝. SO I DID. After about 2 weeks of me carrying around what felt like a rare diamond, and wearing shoes that didn’t make my feet sweat and blister, an amazing shift occurred.

My senior counterpart saw me at a doctors office (client), and asked me if I noticed anything different. I DID! Gatekeepers started letting me back to speak with the doctors, and I even got selected as a team leader at the company. Of course it’s not like I bought magic accessories, by elevating my first impression and perception, I gave off a look, energy and feel of confidence and success.

We all assess people when we meet them. Review what your look, your attire, your accessories, your hairstyle say about you. Adjust those things to match where you want to be in your career versus where you are at now.

Manifesting My Dreams at 19

How manifesting and deliberate action landed me in the city I dreamed of making my home since I was 13 years old.
💜
I get goosebumps just thinking about it. Fun fact, when I was in middle school, I was a model (certainly not a famous one). A gig took me and my mom from Chicago (my hometown) to Los Angeles when I was 13. Driving down the street, seeing all of the grand palm trees 🌴, I said to my self, “I’m moving here one day.”
💜
There wasn’t one day that went by, that I didn’t daydream about my life in Los Angeles. I wore Cali surf brands like Body Glove, highlighted my hair with Sun-In, cut out photos from Teen Magazine and made collages (having no idea they were vision boards). I didn’t wonder if I would live in LA someday, I knew I would.
💜
How the Universe works to manifest our dreams is incredible. Out of all of the colleges I applied to, got accepted at, rejected from, and visited…I ended up at Emerson College in Boston (a well-known school for TV, film, and journalism). Clear across the country from LA! I was accepted at Pepperdine in Malibu, but I still was drawn to choose Emerson. I still knew I would live in LA someday.
💜
Without knowing it, after choosing Emerson (truly Emerson chose me), they have an LA Program where if accepted you get to live in Burbank near the TV studios, and work as an intern in the biz. I knew that was happening, and it did. At 19, I was living in LA!!!!
💜
Manifesting works as long as we are taking the guided actions that work in precision with our dreams. You don’t need to know how it will happen as @manifestationbabe teaches; you just need to know for certain that it will.

What are you manifesting today?

Money Mantra

I love this money mantra!!!!

Screenshot this 👆mantra and turn it into your phone’s screen saver. Every time it pops up on your phone, take a deep breath, exhale, and read. 💜

With repetition, these mantras will (whether you believe them to be true or not right now), sink into your subconscious and conscious mind. You will be surprised how powerful this is.

It’s one of my many strategies to making bank 💰!

Don’t Waste Your Mind!

We all know what wasting money means, but what does wasting your mind mean?

It means, don’t spend mental energy on people, places, things, or situations that don’t serve your greatest good. The more we are distracted in negativity, the less we are able to focus on our goals.

One way I can tell if I’m veering off course is if I feel drained, fatigued, bored, or zombie-like.

For me, that’s a BIG sign that I’m “wasting my mind” on something or someone that doesn’t serve me. Sometimes it’s easy to remove from my life, other times I need to create a plan of action to disconnect. Like if a client isn’t right for me, or if I signed a contract to speak somewhere, that I later realize doesn’t vibe.

So first be aware of what is draining you, then remove it and/or make an action plan to remove it ASAP. After all, “the mind is a terrible thing to waste”.

We All Have a Story

What I loved most about being a television news anchor and reporter was hearing everyone’s story. I loved asking people both unique and simple questions, and never knowing what to expect them to say. In my 4 years at Emerson College as a journalism major, and 4 years at NBC, CBS, and E! News, I got the privilege to interview thousands of people from all walks of life, from celebrities to farmers, to a former President of the United States, to gang members, to single moms barely scraping by.

The one thing in common with all of them (aside from basic human functions), is that we all have a story, that’s filled with pain, joy, and everything in between.

There’s no amount of money, fame, or power to avoid having shit happen in your life. Whether you chose to stay small “safe” and hide or chose to play it BIG and go after your dreams, shit will happen either way. I promise you. Life isn’t meant to be all stress-free and easy. It is meant to be messy at times, and down-right blissful at times. Without those crappy times, we wouldn’t be able to experience the blissful times.

I leave you with one of my favorite questions to ask people: what are you avoiding doing in your life, in an effort to
Trust me, we all have an answer here, as I’ve been asking this question to thousands of people for more than 20 years!!! (Although I didn’t ask former President Bush Jr. this question, as I was too afraid at the time, I did ask several celebrities…yes they all had an answer.).

The Reality of Entrepreneur Life

LET’S GET REAL, the entrepreneur life, the life of a wealthy person, successful person, executive, boss babe, is about 10% glamorous and fabulous, 70% basic and tedious, and 20% a crazy shit-show. Most people are only sharing that 10% on social because quite frankly those moments make great photo ops and inspire people to go after their dreams.

The issue with only showing the glam is people may be inspired to take those first steps to follow their dream career or starting their dream business, BUT, it won’t stick. 98% of people quit or get stuck as soon as they hit their first few roadblocks.

I believe if you knew what roadblocks you were likely to face and have a game plan to overcome them, it wouldn’t be so shocking and discouraging when they pop up, WHICH THEY WILL. Even the top in their field who are worth hundreds of millions, still face giant obstacles. Look at Tony Robbins’ latest bad press on the #metoo movement, or go follow Gary Vay-Ner-Chuk (@garyvee) who is open about the obstacles he faces with his 250 million dollar empire.

My mission with ProjectME is to empower women to go after their dreams through education, wealth-building strategy, and mentorship. I would be doing you a dis-service if I just empowered you without educating you on things that are new to you, that I’m a proven expert in. It would be a set-up for initial excitement and action, that would likely end in an ugly crash and burn. WE DONT WANT THAT DO WE?!

Going after your dream life is 100000% worth it, and it’s a roller-coaster ride. You wouldn’t want to go on a giant roller-coaster alone, would you? 🎢 YOU CAN ABSOLUTELY DO THIS, just not alone or without proper guidance and strategy.

Remember if being wealthy, healthy, and empowered was simple #1, it would be boring, and #2, there would far more millionaires than < 2% of the population!
