You selfish bitch
Do you ever feel like you just can’t help yourself you are SO damn selfish with your time and what you want to be doing?
I can’t tell you how many times a DAY I feel torn between whether to work on my business or spend time playing with my 4 year old daughter or my 6 month old son, or maybe even relaxing with my husband once in a while … and I have to be honest here (even though I’m scared to say this) –
My preference is working on my business. My eyes are covered right now. Please don’t throw things at me! I swear I love love LOVE being a Mum and there is no sweeter sound than that of my kids laughing but full disclosure? There is no sweeter feeling than the satisfaction of knowing I showed up in my business today and I did the work I know I am born to do. And I’m not gonna pretend any longer – I am a workaholic, and proud of it. And you know what else? I am really freaking selfish about getting time for my work.
- I leave the house in a mess most days.
- My bills don’t get paid until I get the reminder notice (not because I don’t wanna pay them, just cause I forget!)
- I have a TON of stuff I’ve been meaning to put on ebay for ages.
- I HATE when my kids or husband or ANYONE speaks to me when I’m working, especially if it’s when I’m writing.
- I will go out of my way to avoid people, situations, meetings and tasks – pretty much to whatever extent I need to – if it means I can get to be alone with my laptop.
- I find small talk EXCRUCIATING because I’d rather be creating in my biz, sending something out there into the world.
- I forget to do things my husband has asked me to do – this is such an issue that our system is now that he emails me a reminder, as that way I am sure to see it!
I could go on and on here, but I don’t want to appear any more of a selfish bitch than what I already am!
But here’s the thing, the thing about being such a god-darn selfish bitch!
Because I am so selfish and INSIST on having my mornings to myself while Enzo looks after the kids from 7-9, I’ve written and published 12 new Amazon books this year in that time.
Because I am so selfish and REFUSE to clean my house or tidy up (actually it’s more like forget or not notice than refuse) I spend an extra hour a day creating new sh*t for my people (that’s you) and launching it, making money and being of service.
Because I am so selfish and I avoid boring social situations like the plague I have an extra 3 or so hours a week which I’ve found is more than enough time to come up with, draft out and launch an entirely new product.
Because I’m so selfish and I deliberately lock myself away from my children and husband for a few hours each afternoon, my new and bright shiny ideas get DONE and then they get marketed, sold, leveraged and dusted.
Because I am so selfish I say no to doing favours or pesky admin tasks and instead act like a prima donna at times in my business and life and as a result my average hourly input is worth in the thousands of dollars rather than $10 an hour.
And because I am so unbelievably selfish, such a god-damn selfish bitch in fact, I have built up an online company that makes anywhere from 30-60k per month, that now allows me to work a total of less than 25 hours a week, that means my family and I could pack up our lives at the drop of a hat last year, move to our current beach-side abode and are taking off in June of this year for a couple years living the laptop lifestyle.
And because I am SUCH a selfish bitch I now don’t have to send my kids to daycare (unless I wanna!) because both Enzo and I work from home and even though I throw a complete and utter tanty if he tries to talk to me when I’m working I work around 2 hours in the morning and 2 hours in the arvo, maybe a bit more at night at times and in between we are together as a family. Playing, working out, hanging out. Whatever.
And because I am just RIDICULOUSLY selfish I can now choose NOT to work anytime I please.
If I want to spend a day at the beach and having an outing, I can.
If I want to take my daughter on a girls date, I can.
And if I want to hear that sweet sweet sound of her laugh, I can. Any old time I choose.
You might not naturally be a selfish bitch like I am. But I’m guessing that if you’re reading it’s not because you’re aghast at the awfulness that is me.
It’s because you can relate.
Because you are RELIEVED to hear you’re not alone.
Because you need somebody to tell you that you’re NOT a bad Mum, wife, partner or friend and that it doesn’t make you a bad person to want to be alone with your laptop, your ideas, and a never-say-die determination to make your dream business and life HAPPEN.
Because you need somebody to tell you that it’s okay to be a selfish bitch. That it might just not only be OKAY but that it is absolutely NOT okay to not be! Because the truth, the truth that I KNOW you know but yet tell yourself you are just trying to ‘justify’ with, is simple –
Us selfish bitches get sh*t done. We dream big, act fast, think later, and run at a speed so dizzying most can’t even see us let alone try to keep up. We light up the world, spin it on it’s head and then dance on top of it. We leave a wake of devastation in our path at times but if we do we do it in the name of creating something bolder, more beautiful, more transformational than ever existed before. We take risks. We gamble at times with the things that matter most to us – our energy, our sleep, our children for God’s sakes, our partners, and definitely our sanity.
But if we do things that make others raise an eyebrow at how selfish we are it’s because we believe, no we KNOW that in order to create the life we truly dream about for ourselves and for our family we must make choices that many simply won’t make. We must do what others won’t so that we can live like they can’t.
I’m proud to be such a selfish bitch. And if you’re with me, then you should be proud to. Us selfish bitches have to stick together! Which brings me to the reason I actually sat down to write to you (I did NOT expect it to go in this manner!) –
I’ve created a tribe of sorts. A hub. A place for learning, training, strategy and getting sh*t done. A place where women unite to act fast, think later, to do in a day what most do in a week, in a week what most do in a month, in a month what most do in a lifetime or not at all. It’s a place for driven, fast-thinking, creative and utterly utterly selfish women entrepreneurs who know that in order to live the life they truly CRAVE they must be willing to press play NOW.
It’s my Rich Chick Mastermind, And to top it all off? You’ll get to come meet all the other selfish bitches who are out there changing the world.
Come join us gorgeous. Say yes to the life you really want. Say yes to doing what it takes. Say yes to being a selfish bitch, and proud of it. Say yes to you.
And remember, of course –
Life is Now. Press Play!
I kinda sorta did something REALLY not ideal! I made a mistake 😞
I then found about that mistake a day or so ago, when one of my amazing clients let me know!
I then fixed it of course, but since then something has been nigglin’ away at me telling me that maybe the mistake was a SIGN and a DIRECTION and I shoulda fixed it the other way!!
What am I talking about? My Easter Extravaganza Instant Manifestation Bundle, which is supposed to close TODAY in just a few hours, and contains 4 of my BEST money and manifestation courses, over 85% off!
As we do, we threw this thing together last minute like usual (aka KAT style) – and somehow managed to put THE WRONG PRICE on the sales page!!! ♀️
– Correct price on order form, when you actually click the buttons.
– Incorrect price on sales page. Doh.
The one on the SALES page was lower, about 25-30% lower than the already reduced 85% off! I think what happened is we copy and pasted off an old previous bundle sales page and so the old price just carried over.
Anyway, a few people pointed it out and obviously we honoured the mistaken lower price while fixing the page for future peeps.
BUTTT … I just felt ugh about it, y’know? Even though the lower price was a mistake! And even though the actual price was literally already 85% off for this offer!
It wouldn’t stop bugging me.
So, long story short, I’m changing it!
My Easter Extravaganza Bundle is now over NINETY PERCENT reduced … for anyone who already bought and paid full we will honour the lower price for you as well of course (watch out for an email later today!) and for everyone who has NOT yet, the price has now been adjusted on the sales page, DOWN!
And, because of the muck around and confusion, I’m extending my bundle sale for one more day into Easter Tuesday 🐣
Jump on now and grab four of my best Money and Manifestation courses now at 90% off, next 24 hours ONLY!!! 💥
Literally just as I finished writing this my brother walked in to my room with my (fixed!) phone. OF COURSE. Everything always works out in my favour. Just like I told ya. And just in time to snap a quick pic for this blog.
Get it! One more day! Lessssgooooo, now 90% off! https://thekatrinaruthshow.com/katrina-ruths-easter-bundle/ —> this price is CRAZY! Extra crazy!!
I wrote half of that with my eyes closed while having makeup done. #ninjaAF
