I never would have thought that 2 lamps, 2 end tables, 2 chairs and a room clean-up would change what I was able to create in the world.
But holy shit.
Lemme back up and tell you some of the backstory.
I recently got back from a trip to Paris.
While I was in Paris, people kept asking me about the new house.
(I have a new house.)
(And I was at a class. Where people who've never met me but see my social media, were.)
And I kept hearing coming out of my mouth the words and the energy of, "Meh, it's ok."
Which is actually ridiculous, because this house is anything but Meh.
However, it IS big. And we did move into it with very little furniture. And it turns out the heat has been broken, which means it's been cold.
For Christel, this is a Grade A combo for high-energy "Meh" comments.
So, I started hearing myself, and one day really started asking myself "what it would take" to make it feel FUN to live here.
And I realized two things:

I'm a weaver. I get super impatient at slow drivers, and if I'm honest, I drive more like a cab driver than I ever admit out loud.
I was a waitress for over 20 years.
I was terrible when it was slow. I would forget things, and people.
But when we were slammed out of our brains, with people crawling everywhere, I was the best server in town. And on the nights when I was willing to get into the groove with what was going on, it was like everything slowed into slow motion, and there was just... flow.
So, here's what I learned about myself in business -- I do business better fast, with more on the go.
Hence, the first in my series of 6 rebel business secrets: do it all.
If it matches the energy, choose it.
Don't focus. Or narrow it down.
Broaden 'it'. Add. Choose more of what's fun for you.
I know we're taught that doing more is overwhelming. Puts us out of whack and out of...
