In 2008 Emily was on her way to Northwestern to get a Master’s degree in Counseling Psychology. With no clarity that this was her life goal, she turned the car around and set herself on a new path. She applied for a student visa, moved to London, met her husband and started I Heart My Life, a program that helps women create a life and business better than your dreams. 


Emily believes that clarity comes from that one thing that won’t leave you alone. If the desire is there, you are capable of moving forward with it. Emily started her coaching business with a goal to reach 6-figures by the time she turned 30. She hired a business coach who challenged her to envision the life she could live when her goals were met. With a new mindset, she quickly made 6-figures in her first six months and 7 figures by 18 months!


“I might not have the skillset this second, but that doesn't mean that I can't develop it or learn or work with people that will help me reach that goal.” - Emily Williams


Emily doesn’t beat around the bush, regardless of the obstacles or troubles one has, she says success is non negotiable. When you know it’s your purpose and your passion, there is no excuse. Success is where you’re destined to be. Do you really want this? If so, you’ve got to step up. Taking control of your schedule is important. Your business cannot grow unless you’re able to delegate. Self care cannot be an afterthought. 


“Everything, we desire, all those visions, all those things that we see for ourselves, all of that is possible for us.” - Emily Williams

Emily (00:00):

I don't know, I don't want to be too harsh, but in the same way I do so many people are just lazy when it comes to their dreams. And it's like, Oh, you know, this one thing didn't work. And so I'm just gonna, you know, take two steps back, or I'm just gonna make that one phone call. And they expect that that client is going to sign up. I mean, in the beginning of building my business, I had 54 nos in a row. So I got on the call on a call with 54 people in a row. And they all said no to working with me.

Dallin (00:24):

Welcome to Visionaries, where we believe having a positive vision for the future and actually sharing it is the best way to build a brand, grow authority and live a meaningful life. The show will explore different stories and strategies of the most visionary people today and what they're doing to inspire and change the world.

Dallin (00:42):

Hey, Emily, how are you doing?

Emily (00:43):

Great! Thank you for having me.

Dallin (00:46):

Hey. Thanks for being on, you know, it's fun to have had the chance to get to know you a little bit over these last few weeks months, and I'm excited to share more about your story, but also what makes you visionary on the show? So tell us more about, Mmm, well, some of your story of what has led you to the business and life you have today.

Emily (01:10):

Yeah. So my story really starts back in 2008. So I had plans to go to Northwestern to get a master's degree in counseling psychology. And I was literally driving from Ohio in the United States to Chicago, and it was about a five hour drive and literally an hour or so into that drive. My mom was in the driver's seat and I was in the passenger seat. I started to get this feeling in the pit of my stomach. Like this was not the right next step for me.

Emily (01:36):

And I couldn't pinpoint where that was coming from. It was just this gut instinct that this was wrong. And so I started crying and my mom asked me what was wrong. And I just told her, I need more time. I don't think this is the right next step. And basically we turned the car around and went back to Ohio. And that was a huge moment for me because I had had my whole life kind of mapped out up until that point. And I thought I'd figured it out. I thought I was going to go and get this master's degree and then start my own practice. But life had a completely different plan. And because I had always been someone who had had it mapped out when I went back to Ohio, I felt completely lost and I felt like a failure. And so I basically had to figure out what that next step actually was.

Emily (02:23):

And so for a while I was doing odd jobs. I was working in a hospital at one point, I even worked at Starbucks. And then eventually the only clarity I had was that I wanted to live in London. And so I had visited the UK when my sister was studying abroad in Europe and I literally fell in love with it. And it was one of those gut instinct moments again, where I felt like there was something there for me and I couldn't justify it. No one in my family had ever left Ohio, but I knew that I was meant to live in London. So I did everything I possibly could and applied for a student visa and actually started a master's in writing program in the UK, moved to London in August, 2010 and long story short ended up living there for 10 years, meeting my husband and eventually starting the company that is, I Heart My Life because for so many years I did not hurt my life.

Emily (03:17):

And I was in a quarter life crisis, even after I moved to London and was just so lost and confused, had no idea what I wanted to do. And yet always had this feeling like I was meant for something big, but just didn't know what that actually looked like. So when I discovered the world of coaching, I realized, okay, I can help other women figure out their lives just like I did in mine. And just like, I was able to get that clarity and able to actually move forward with this thing that, that did light me up. And so I Heart My Life stems out of my own journey and my desire to help other women create a life and business better than their dreams.

Dallin (03:56):

Hmm, man, I, that resonates with me so much, although I'm not a woman obviously, but the thing that I love about coaching and what you've built is that it's built out of your own story and that you've identified like, what are these milestones that I've owned that I've taken myself? Like you're becoming and are the coach that you need it, you know, years ago or months ago. And and to me dissecting that is so fascinating because it's the ultimate like hero's journey or heroine's journey where, you know, we can follow the plan that's presented to us. Mmm. Well, what is like there's was some things that jumped out to me as you're describing your story is how you mentioned clarity but you also mentioned like, he didn't really know exactly what to do, but you decided to take action at least. And, you know, you took the next right step. You went in the direction, you went to London you discovered coaching. What what have you found works well, as far as unpacking what it takes to gain clarity, but then take the next right step to to put you in the direction you need to go. Yeah.

Emily (05:08):

So after I turned the car around, I was obviously upset. Didn't know what I wanted to do with my life. But what I realized was my heart had for whatever reason led me to make this decision, because again, I couldn't justify it. I had spent about eight months traveling around the US trying to figure out where I wanted to go to grad school. I'd applied to 12 different schools and gotten into 10 of them. And so I had, I had really thought this decision out.

Dallin (05:34):

And so for my options for you too, it's not like, it's not like, Oh, here's like this shining one, a decision to make you have over 10.

Emily (05:43):

Exactly. Yeah. So I made it a little bit hard for myself, but I really did think about the decision I had participated in every part of that decision. And so I realized, you know, what, there's this gut instinct that happened here.

Emily (05:55):

My heart clearly wanted me to go in a direction. I don't know why, but I should probably start listening to it. And so when I got the call and that's the way I like to think about it, the call or the little whisper to move to London, I couldn't shut it off. And I think so often that clarity comes from that whisper or that thing that won't leave us alone. We can't get it out of our mind. It's like we're being pooled there even right now. I'm in the midst of like one of the busiest times. And I want to create this new course because I cannot get it out of my, I had, and I'm like, this is something I have to do. And so it was the same thing with, you know, that period of time in my life, I had to start following my heart and acknowledging that it's leading me in the direction that I need to go in and I have to start trusting that.

Emily (06:39):

And I think this is where a lot of people fall short. They hear these whispers, they hear this guidance and then all this, and then it's like, Oh no, but I couldn't do that. Or that's not possible for me, or that's too challenging. Or I don't know anyone who's done that before and they immediately shut it off. And so one of the things I love working with my clients on is really acknowledging their desires, bringing them to the surface and then generating the confidence and the conviction to actually take the action and the direction of their dreams. Because it's not enough just to acknowledge the desires. You actually have to take the steps.

Dallin (07:14):

Yeah. Yeah. It's the execution I feel like is the biggest separator between those who become successful in those who don't. Mmm. Well, so what is with bringing that clarity to light right into like knowing what's out there, like for you, right.

Dallin (07:33):

You had 10 decisions to make Mmm. From a coach coaches perspective, how do you direct someone to know Mmm. Like what direction they should take or giving them that confidence too, actually like move forward because it can gaining that confidence is like, I feel like that's biggest hurdle to jump over is knowing that is this the right thing? Can I be successful at this? Like, what is, what's usually your your process for taking your clients through?

Emily (08:06):

Well, it's pretty black and white. I truly believe that our desires are like DNA. They're a part of us for a reason. And so when I see that someone wants something for me, it's not even a question. It's just, okay, you want it great. That's in your awareness. And so if the desire is there and you must be capable and the opportunity must be there, the resources must be there.

Emily (08:29):

And when you make it just black and white, it's very easy to just move forward. Now I'm not saying that, you know exactly how you're going to make something happen, but when you start to trust that whatever you've been made aware of, or you have a desire for when you trust that that's actually meant for you and possible for you, then it really eliminates so much of the fear and doubt and confusion. Cause it's just like black and white. It's like, okay, awesome. So I'm going to take that step. And I remember when I first moved to London, I was asking my grandpa about the decision. And I just said, you know, how do you know if something is right for you? And he said, well, you might not ever know a hundred percent, but that doesn't mean that you don't try. And so that's really the mentality I've adopted is if something's calling me, I'm going to take the action until it no longer feels good, or I feel like it's no longer the right next step. But until that point, I'm going to move forward and trust my instincts and believe that if I'm being called to something, I might not have the skillset this second, but that doesn't mean that I can't develop it or learn or work with people that will help me reach that goal.

Dallin (09:37):

Hmm. Wow. You know, I love that clarity that you've gained. I mean, it's, it's so cool, Emily. I mean, you're, you're an inspiration obviously to many people. What would you say with feeling like this uneasiness and this does, you know, you have this desire to do something more. Mmm. Was there, was there any kind of clarity or vision you had for like, you know, not necessarily a timeline, but more of like, here's the lifestyle that I want to create. This is what I want it to look like. And you kind of dreaming up what that look like. Was there a moment that you could see that and also kind of describe if you could see that kind of describe what that may have looked like for you then.

Emily (10:23):

So when I started, I Heart My Life, the vision was literally let's hit six figures because in my mind I always thought about that milestone. And I grew up with entrepreneurs all around me, my dad, and both my grandpas had businesses. And so I always thought about that six figure level for myself. Now, granted at one point I thought I would be owning a private practice and that would be what it would look like. But when I started the coaching business, I kind of transferred that goal into that business as well. And so when I started iHeart my life, I think most of us really hope that the clients will come in right away. Everything's going to happen really easily. And to a certain extent, my trajectory was very speedy and very quick, quick. But in the beginning there was a month where I made $442 and I was like, this is not going to cut it.

Emily (11:12):

I want to be able to leave my nine to five job. I want to be able to do this full time. I want to hit that six figure goal. And so basically I set my sights on hitting six figures before my 30th birthday, which would be the next October. And so I ended up working with a coach and starting to get clear around what was actually possible for me. And at that time I was making about $30,000 a year as a matchmaker. And I was $30,000 in credit card debt and $90,000 in student loan debt. And so I wanted to dig myself out of that hole. I want it to make as much money as possible. And in working with her, she started to tell me, you know, six figures is definitely possible for you, but did you also know that you can turn your annual into your monthly income?

Emily (11:55):

And I was like, what are you talking about? I don't know anyone making $30,000 a month. At least not people who are 27 years old, but I started to entertain the idea of what that would look like for me and what that would mean for me and my husband and that really excited me. And so one of the things that I started doing with her was visioning what it would look like to have that $30,000 a month, what would happen? Should that be my reality? And for a lot of my clients, this is something that's very difficult for them to even think about. They don't let themselves go there because a lot of people have a fear around reaching that goal, a fear of what success will mean for them. And we can talk more about money mindset in a second, but one of the things I had to move through was this belief that six figures was going to be basically the milestone that would be the end all be all for me.

Emily (12:47):

And so I started to raise the bar and realize, okay, I can actually do this quicker than I thought. And at some point I had made up this rule that you couldn't be a millionaire unless you were like 40 something. And so I decided, you know what, I'm not going to adhere to that anymore. So I worked my booty off and ended up making six figures in my first six months and actually hit seven figures in my first 18 months. And so I completely, you know, knocked my own socks off and just showed myself what was possible. And that continues to be one of the things that I help people with on a regular basis is really, you know, compressing that timeline that we all have in place. And also recognizing that everything, we desire, all those visions, all those things that we see for ourselves, all of that is possible for us.

Dallin (13:36):

Mm. You know, the cool thing about this is to me, it's like a masterclass in leaning into your, like the story that you want to create for yourself. I like this future outcome. What, I mean, what have you found with all of the women and entrepreneurs that you've served is one of the, you know, you mentioned fear of success, but like what is one of the biggest limiting beliefs or holdups that we have as entrepreneurs who want to build a vision for a life and business? Mmm. What is the next right step usually for people to take, to say overcome that, that belief?

Emily (14:19):

Yeah. I think, I mean, there's so many, but I think it comes down to fear and just allowing that fear to derail us. And that's why I'm so passionate about desires because when you're really connected to your desires and the vision for your life and for your business, then you can move through that fear really quickly because that desire is actually greater than the fear. And so it fuels you now, a lot of people are just focused on what isn't working, what their limitations are. And I was totally guilty of this. And honestly, it's one of the reasons that I do this work because when I first got to London, I didn't have any friends. I didn't know what I wanted to do with my life. I was in this tiny closet sized apartment. I had no money and I was focused on what wasn't working. And I was focused on the lack and focused on what my biggest fears were. And then I started working with my own coach and she taught me that I actually had the power over my thoughts. And I was like, this is crazy. I just did a whole psychology degree. Why didn't anyone explain this to me this way? Why aren't we taught this in high school?

Emily (15:22):

And so when she said that my eyes were opened up to, okay, so I don't have to believe, leave everything in my mind, guys. I don't have to buy into all of these fears. And so I started to focus on what I desired and shift shifted my perspective, because right now, if you think about it, like we're all looking at life through a certain lens. And my lens was okay. I can see everything that's not working. And so guess what? I got more of, I got more of the things that weren't working and I noticed those. And so when I started to open my eyes to what it was that I actually wanted, I started to do my vision board and just pay attention to all the positives. I had a daily gratitude practice when I started doing all of those things. My life started to change, and I truly believe that more doors opened more opportunities opened up because I was focused on the positive as well as what I actually wanted.

Emily (16:11):

And those fears, all those doubts, all those insecurities. It was like, there wasn't any more room in my mind for those, because we can only have one thought at a time. And so we have to replace it with the thoughts that are actually going to serve us. And so, you know, if anyone out there is looking to achieve something big, that's really the first place that I start, because your mind is your foundation. So you have to ask yourself, am I buying into the fears and the limitations or my focused on the desires and the things I actually want to happen?

Dallin (16:41):

Would you say, that's why people follow productivity and workbooks, you know, like all the different solutions out there that may work for many different people. But I mean, I think we're, I think we are actually attracted to Mmm. Solutions like that, right. Where, where it gives us a sense of achievement when we can document it. But to me, there's, there's definitely, there's a next level of mindset work that takes place when not only can we like identify it, which you said early on, but also get focused on that desire of what we want to have happen in that solution. W what does that look like? As far as, like, I'm trying to process how to ask this, because like, what does that look like? As far as making that intangible more tangible? Like, we have a desire, we want something we can envision in our minds, but to make it become a reality and our future. Mmm. Like, I feel like that that, right. It's that fear crippling.

Dallin (17:50):

It was like, how can we make this actually come to life? And apart from like, jotting it down, or maybe creating like that visual, you know, vision board that we, we often do. Is it, is it taking action? You know, is it I mean, you know, you know what I mean, though? It's like, it's the mindset shift too. Like we can make, we can have that desire we want, but Mmm. Yeah. Just being able to achieve that. I feel like yeah, a huge, huge hold up. So I guess, yeah. Dig deeper into that, of what you just talking about.

Emily (18:25):

Yeah. I mean, it's pretty simple when you think about it. So the word that, what comes to mind for me that I teach my clients is this word about, of making things non-negotiable. And so it's not enough just to take the first action step.

Dallin (18:38):

You have to be so committed to your dreams and your goals that regardless of what comes up to try and stop you, whether it's your mind or some sort of experience, this is non negotiable, and you will find a way. And so, just like, I like to always think about a map of the United States and someone driving from New York to California, if they absolutely had to get to California, it was a matter of life or death. They would find a way to get there, even if they had to change their route, if they had to hitchhike, if they had to, whatever it is that they had to do, they would make it happen. And so I think so many people are just, I dunno, I don't want to be too harsh, but in the same way I do so many people, aren't just lazy when it comes to their dreams.

Emily (19:20):

And it's like, Oh yeah, this one thing didn't work. And so I'm just gonna, you know, take two steps back, or I'm just gonna make that one phone call. And they expect that that client he's going to sign up. I mean, in the beginning of building my business, I had 54 nos in a row. So I got on the call on a call with 54 people in a row. And they all said no to working with me. And of course in that moment, I was like, this sucks. I'm not going to work. Yeah. But I figured out what I was doing wrong and what I needed to change in order to reach my goals. And I think that's what happens like when you are heart-centered and you are being pooled in a certain direction and, you know, it's your purpose and your passion. It's like, there's not even an excuse.

Emily (20:00):

I know that my success is destined because of what I've been told I'm meant for. And so I know that it's not even an option for me to stop. It's not an option for me to give into fear. I have to be better than that. And so I think it comes down to that non-negotiable piece and asking yourself, do I really want this? And I started asking my clients this on a regular basis, like, do you actually want to do this? And if so, then you got to step up because your dreams, aren't just going to be handed to you on a silver platter. You have to work for it. And you have to show up every single day.

Dallin (20:34):

Wow. You know, I want to, this is so good. And I want to kind of shift shift gears slightly. And maybe you can speak from your own experience for sure is to show up every day. Um obviously it's very difficult. Whether that's showing, it looks like you know, going on social media, if that's part of our marketing and maybe.

Emily (20:58):

Why is it difficult?

Dallin (21:01):

Let, let me, let me lead to it. And then I'll answer that. And I would say, like, it's difficult for those who don't have clarity on what they want. I would say BBC kind of philosophy like, well, what am I doing this for? But I guess what I was gonna speak to is like, Mmm aren't those those days. And maybe for those listening where we don't have that desire to show up, like w you know, for, for those people, cause you know, you're a coach. And so you've definitely talked to these people who who find it difficult to, or maybe there's a more correct word for that where you just want to be lazy.

Dallin (21:37):

Right. You're just like, ah, I just want to take a break today. I want to go binge on Netflix or whatever your vice is or your Mmm. Outlet. Mmm. What are your thoughts as far as that goes, as far as those who just need a moment to take a break or feel like, you know, I don't like, I know I need to show up, I'm going to choose not to show up. I mean, w would you, do you, do you have a personal connection to that in any way it has, like, has that been a part of your story or have you seen your clients experience that?

Emily (22:09):

So there's a few ways to think about that. So first I would ask myself, is this a real need for a break or is my mind trying to distract me or stop me from moving forward with something that's really important?

Emily (22:23):

And so of course we're not robots and we need breaks and I'm not about promoting burnout, but I am about being, be able to be self aware and ask yourself, what is this actually about for me? Because yes, we all need breaks, but more often than not, when people tell me, Oh, you know what, I'm too tired to go on Facebook live. Or, you know, I don't want to send this email because I don't want to be too spammy or whatever. It's really about them holding themselves back because of fear. So from my perspective, it's just about being really self aware and being honest with yourself about what camp you actually fall in or fall under what category. And then if it is the fact that you're just trying to delay having the strength to say, you know what, I'm not going to allow myself to give into that previous pattern of doing things.

Emily (23:12):

So I'm going to show up and create a new way of doing this and I'm going to actually move through this. Yeah. Instead of that, that delay tactic that the mind tries to throw at us every once in awhile.

Dallin (23:23):

Yeah. Yeah, no, cause I feel like it's very human two want to take breaks. Right. And I love that you identified Mmm. That it's like within the context of like, well, what is my reason for taking this break? Is it to delay things? Or is it truly, you know, can I get away with, I'm taking this break in? And I, and I would even venture to say that showing up can be done by design it. You know, I have to do this with my clients where it's like, you can still show up every day when you're not literally showing up every single day.

Dallin (23:56):

In the sense that like you plan ahead, you have the content strategy or you have the intention in place that if you need to take a day off for any unplanned for any unseen reason. You have the team, the systems set up that you can still be showing up and serving your customers every single day without you literally behind your computer with that.

Emily (24:23):

Totally. And I think it's just about being honest about what you want for your life and for your business. And this is where, you know, I'm really blunt with my clients as well. And if they don't want to work a lot, well, like don't set your goals so high, like let's be in reality around what kind of business you actually run because not everyone wants to run the same type of business. Not every, not at all, hit seven figures.

Emily (24:45):

Not everyone wants to manage a team. And so let's not like be delusional about what, like what you're saying you want should be backed by action. And if it's not, then I need to ask you, is this actually what you want? Or do we need to be building a different business and have different goals so true.

Dallin (25:03):

And that, that resonates so much. Cause not everyone, is can't like is bred to be an entrepreneur or has that in them. And meaning like they're building something themselves, like there plenty of amazing people there too. Maybe make certain entrepreneurial decisions, but not necessarily be the business leader behind Mmm. You know, the brands that are being built. You know, this has been so good, Emily. I am interested in learning more about Mmm. Like what was that shift when you recognize when fact before I get into that one key word that jumped out to me was this idea of control.

Dallin (25:46):

I guess like, yeah, that term and how like, this is something that I've seen for myself recently is how can it be intentional? How can I take control of my, my schedule? And what I commit to, you know, negotiate the non-negotiables or you brought up Mmm. Was there ever a time that you felt that burnout where you needed to take intentional control over your schedule which made then some important shifts in your business?

Emily (26:17):

So this year in particular has been a huge shift. So I'll be the first to admit that I waited far too long to build a team and to hire, because in the beginning I taught myself how to do everything, which meant I could do everything. And that was definitely kind of one of the pitfalls of growing a business so quickly and learning how to do everything and not knowing how to hire and so on and so forth.

Emily (26:40):

But this year in particular, it's been amazing because we've hired, I think it like six people over the past few months, and that in itself has been like a whole nother job of needing to delegate. Yeah. But for me, like, it's starting to realize how often I don't delegate when I actually should. And so for me, it's been like such a huge lesson to know when I'm holding onto the reins too tight. And to recognize that this company is never going to grow, unless I'm able to delegate. And I am going to go into burnout if I don't get these things off my plate. And I feel like I'm still a work in progress and a big way, because I am obsessed with what I do. And like I will work myself into the ground. And so my husband, he's actually a certified high performance coach.

Emily (27:28):

And he's been someone who has been pivotal to me all these years because he is not a workaholic and he will be the first one to let you know that he wants to work four hours in the morning and then take the afternoon off to go hiking. Whereas me, I will work 12 hours solid I'll work seven days a week, even yesterday I was telling him, I was like, I feel like I'm forcing myself to relax right now when I actually want to be creating this course. And so I'm not the person to talk to about not going into burnout, but I have learned certain things over the years through my husband and through working with other coaches about protecting my sleep. So I'll go to bed at eight 30 and I normally wake up at four 30 or five because I love working early in the morning, but I've been really dedicated to protecting my sleep, to tracking my sleep through to vitamins and supplements, to working out as much as I can. And it took, but it took me a long time to understand that I'm basically like a business in myself. And if I'm not performing at the capacity that I need to perform for our company, then, you know, that's, that's missed opportunity. And so I think so many entrepreneurs start a business with the dream in mind and that self care piece is an afterthought. And I was definitely one of them, but I quickly learned that if I'm going to reach my goals, it can't actually be an afterthought.

Dallin (28:49):

Yeah. You know, and, and I love that you brought up your husband and his involvement because there's that idea of support around us. Like having, whether it's a partner, a spouse, a friend, someone from the outside who can look in and help us be kind of like a fresh pair of eyes, you know, on, on a way that we can re approach things. And it's, it's so funny too. You shared about that experience yesterday. I was like, that's like, Emily, I feel like you and I are the same in that way where it's like, I can't, I can't guarantee that I can turn off my brain. Like I may, yes. I can be present in many situations, but oftentimes my mind is like, Ugh, but, you know, I could spend this time working on this product or I could be doing this other thing, which I really want to do right now. And then oftentimes our business becomes our hobby, you know? And and so yeah, I know it's just really funny. It's super relatable that and it's not necessarily a bad thing, you know, I think having that passion right is important. We need to have that there, but it's nice to have that a little bit more of that balance, I guess, in someone in our lives that can still help us in support our vision, but yet Mmm. Help us detach a little bit as well.

Emily (30:00):

Yeah. I mean, from the get go, I've always had coaches. That was one of the first investments that I, that I decided to make my husband actually lent me his credit card. And we put a $7,500 program on his card when I was first starting out, because I realized like, I'm not meant to do this alone. If it was anything else, like getting a degree, going to school, I would be getting that support. And so why am I trying to do this alone in my business? And so ever since then, I've been passionate about working with a variety of different types of coaches and mentors and yeah.

Emily (30:31):

People who are able to shed some light on my blind spots and teach me things that I don't know, and ultimately helped me grow faster. So, yeah. And my husband's definitely one of those people and he yesterday, when, when that experience happened, he's like, well, you're using way more energy being in resistance. So just go up there and do whatever it is you want to do. And all I had to do is work for like 45 minutes. And then I was like, okay, great. I've got that done. And that feels really good. And I felt like I achieved what I wanted to achieve. So sometimes it's not even a matter of working like for a solid eight hours. It's just getting something into action or getting something down on paper. And then you feel like, you know, you've accomplished it.

Dallin (31:12):

Yeah. Yeah, man. Oh, that's, that's so good. I liked that so much, Emily. Well, you know, I appreciate your time and Mmm. One, some partying ideas I would alone it. I want to leave off on our it's but you know, seeing yourself in another five years from now based on, you know, your you've been in business for five to 10 years, right? Yeah. Six and a half years. Yeah. Two years. Mmm. And if another five years from now. Mmm. What would you, what do you think you would tell yourself to the person you are today to help set you up to realize that future you want? Does that make sense? Yeah, it does. Yeah. Okay. Yeah.

Emily (31:56):

I mean, I imagine it'll be the same thing that I would have told that girl five years ago and it's to stop worrying and just continue to trust that it's all happening as it's meant to, because, you know, even, even now with what I know, I always want things to happen faster.

Emily (32:13):

I always get annoyed with challenge. And so I'm really working on seeing the present moment for what it is and just trusting that it's all happening in the right timeline and that everything's happening the way it's meant to. And it's all leading to that vision. But I think part of being a business owner, it means you are a visionary and sometimes that equates to being impatient and wanting things to happen like tomorrow, because you have such a big vision and you can see it. You kind of know what a little yeah. It looks like. So there's like a frustration, like why hasn't this happened yet? So it would be, it would be don't worry and just enjoy the process.

Dallin (32:49):

Yeah. Oh, that's so powerful. And I think many of us, I need to hear that, you know, and so I think the clarity and what you've built so far and what you're going to continue to build upon is inspiring. And you're like, yeah. Inspiration to many people. I know. And I appreciate your time. And like in what your, I Heart My Life really like, you know, that speaks to the core of many of us, like having a heart behind our business and an intention to our life in building what we want.
