14 Day Challenge: Momentum Maker: Day 11
Whether you are a coach, entrepreneur and/or in a business, you have likely come across the term momentum. When I worked in Corporate full-time, I didn't reflect on natural and divine skills I have. Before I became a full-time entrepreneur in 2011, I was a side-hustler for years. I didn't realize the momentum required to get to full-time income as an entrepreneur. I learned the hard way what it takes to be a momentum maker.
When you work for someone else and receive a salary, it's easy to overlook what it takes to make money unless you are in sales. For years, I served in strategy, operations and finance. Back in college, I worked in a relationship-based sales role both in credit union and later in retail and did great. However, with time, I somehow forgot the connection, consistency and community required.
As an entrepreneur, I ended up enduring a lot of pain walking through pouring myself out in every direction and the way I knew. In the midst of all of this, I received an opportunity to be deeply humbled with how I didn't focus on gratitude, humility and service for years. While I am a CPA and helped others earn 6-8+ figures per year, I didn't have a great relationship with money myself for a long time.
In the last seven years, I have been transformed by service, value and faith in every way. Along the journey, I learned to stay consistent no matter what to be a momentum maker. In the midst of being an entrepreneur, I have walked through consequences and refinement in every way, as well as pouring myself out in service, borrowing money, and going into debt further despite showing up for a long time before things started to turn around.
I don't share this to get sympathy. I share this to give you the reality that things often get harder for awhile before they get easier. More than anything, my faith, mindset, and determination have been tested. Likely, so is yours now and/or will be at some point.
When you decide it is time to be a momentum maker, everything changes. In the 14 Day Challenge, Day 1, I shared how transformation is required to create a life and business you love. In the 14 Day Challenge, you will experience 12 themes to create a life and business you love from faith to wellness to money and travel.
Whether you create with our community on the blog, podcast, and/or in the 14 Day Challenge sneak peek to our monthly mastermind, Creation Club, you will experience transformation like never before. On Day 11 of the 14 Day Challenge, it's time to make momentum.

Momentum Maker Intro
Momentum maker involves how you become better daily, your daily routine, and alignment to the results you want in every area of life.
No matter whether you are a side-hustler, pursuing your passion and purpose full-time, and/or work with a business, momentum maker will challenge you on your daily actions and how well you align to your vision.
When you choose to be a momentum maker, you are choosing to shift beliefs and behaviors in your mornings and spiritual to financial areas of life. Once you align yourself, you naturally begin to align to creating a life and business you love.
In 2016, I created a 90 day plan including seven steps to success. I realized where my beliefs and behaviors misaligned in different areas of life. Step by Step, I began to shift each area focusing on 1-3 actions daily. I started to shift how I began my days changing everything.
In 2019, I started naturally waking up over 80% of the time 4-5 am continuing to refine the first two hours of my day. I now call my morning routine my sacred 7. I identified my priorities in business to a create 7 to hold myself and us accountable to beliefs and behaviors, as well as results.
If you focus on your daily actions and changing over time, you will transform every single area of your life. It will require divine patience especially if you have a mind-blowing God given vision. I know it isn't easy to undo years of beliefs and behaviors. I promise it is worth it.
Momentum Maker involves:
Morning Routines (Sacred 7)
Seven Steps to Success
90 Day Plan
Momentum Maker will test your beliefs and behaviors. Are you willing to keep going even and especially when it looks crazy? How much are you willing to believe? Do you practice patience? How are you getting uncomfortable all the time on a daily basis?
Momentum Maker involves your morning routine, seven steps to success, create 7, and a 90 Day Plan to name a few areas.
Momentum Maker Strategy
When I first became an entrepreneur, I barely had a morning routine, and minimal accountability plan. Everything you see including my morning routine, seven step to success, create 7 and 90 day plan are created because of faith and work.
If you ask me for my biggest tip to create a life and business you love - it is believe & don't quit. Keep focusing on faith and being better daily. Over time, you will be and become a momentum maker. How I spend my time now is completely transformed by my beliefs and behaviors.
Start small with your morning routine and how you spend the time. For example, my sacred 7 morning routine includes prayer, meditation, Bible, journaling, movement, message, and music. Every morning, I wake up excited and feel even more full of joy once I am done. I am amazed myself.
In 2013, I started shifting beliefs and behaviors with my spiritual and physical life. Step by step, this led to creating the 7 Steps to Success in 2016. However, my 90 Day Plan looked nothing like they do in 2010. I and we will continue to pursue passion, purpose and potential. So will you if you choose to.
Over the last several years, our Create 7 focus started evolving as well. I saw where my creation, automation and delegation could be refined. In 2020, I feel like everything started coming together with media, wellness, business and travel. Everything flows from the inside out. I now feel clarity, alignment and purpose like never before.
When you connect with me or us as a brand on any platform, it is easy to now quickly see we have our hands in marketing and media, online business, transformation tools, and brand consulting and engagements.
On a daily basis, we are either creating, automating and /or delegating in 7 areas. When you are focusing on being a momentum maker, consider your actions daily and what you are creating.
Here are some questions to ask yourself:
How is your morning routine?
What actions do you take daily in each area of life?
Which ways are you aligned to what you want?
What are you creating daily?
How are you connected to communities?
Some examples for Momentum Maker includes:
Identifying your morning routine and transforming
Focusing on seven steps to success daily
Evaluating one focus area for increased action
Reviewing 1-3 actions daily on a weekly basis
Creating 1-7 areas on a daily to weekly basis
Connecting with communities to increase impact
These are some of the things I teach in momentum maker in our freebies, mastermind, courses online, and live events.
Momentum Maker Tools
When you focus on momentum maker think of tips, tools and technology. I consistently use tools like Meister Task, Live Plan, Focus Matrix, Toggl and more.
I strategize ways to simplify and amplify Create 7 via automating and delegating. For example, I outsourced social media pins and LinkedIn posts to Okay Relax with a clear outline recently. I requested business development contacts for wellness and travel as well. I am testing sharing Facebook posts now in communities, as well as outreach emails right now. I will automate and delegate those next.
You may see how the simpler I and we make each area, and the quicker we automate and delegate, the more traction and return on investment we will have.
I’ve found technology and tools help you limitlessly. It is key to #createit and practice.
It isn't enough to read blogs or listen to podcasts. It is time to #createit - what you love.
Momentum Maker helps you see progress in every area of life.
