Walking and Dreaming in the Midst of Chaos

Episode #65: Welcome to the She Builds Show, I’m your host, Stefanie Olson and this week I’m stepping out on a walk with my dog to share some real and raw thoughts. Sometimes when our life feels upside down, it can be difficult to see a clear path forward for ourselves. That’s been my life recently, but by taking the time to gather my thoughts, focus on my dreams and discover all the opportunities available to me, I am confident that I can build anything I set my mind to.

‘’In the midst of chaos, there is also opportunity’’ – The Art of War, Sun Tzu

Ready? Listen in…


•  I had to break that news to my kids, and all I was trying to do, to kind of cheer up and lift up my daughter was tell her, let’s find everything that we can be grateful for, like let’s find ways where God showed up for us. And we had a kind of crazy thing happen at a different hospital and got discharged and in that moment, we were really, really, really upset, but then now with this new hospital and what we found out, we were like, Oh my gosh, God saved him from a surgery that could of been terrible for him. And so we were just trying to find all these ways to be grateful, and my daughter was just convinced that there was absolutely nothing good about what is happening now. I ended up needing to get an MRI CD and it was a crazy story, I ended up like… They were closed and I’m knocking and pounding on this door to try to get somebody to show up, and I’m literally in a ball of tears because I needed this MRI and I didn’t want to have to drive back another hour and a half to where it was left. And, this lady walks out and she burns the CD for me after hours and slides it through the crack. (01:59)

•  I try to tell her that if I could, just like out of all the things I know, out of all the things in the world that I’ve learned about business and investing in cash flow and money, and being a parent and a mother and a wife, and just taking care of my body and my home, all of the things that I invest in and all of the things that I do. I’m like, If I could only teach you this thing… That would be it. That is what I would choose to do. I wouldn’t teach you how to flip the house, I wouldn’t teach you how to be this or that, I would teach you how to manage your mind, I would teach you how to take care of your thoughts because… Oh my gosh, child, if you can capture that concept before you’re 40, you’re going to be light years ahead of me. (05:58)

•  We never look inside of ourselves for the answer and really, truly everything that we want to offer to the world and add value, we already know. And we know how to be able to write down all of the ideas. I just listed off all of those things that could be inside that She Build School, and all my brain can tell me is I don’t know how to do it, but I just gave you all of those things just out of an air that I want to do, so I do know! You do know. You do know, you know how you add value, and you know that you can do it and the possibility is absolutely available to you. Brooke teaches this crazy concept, which I still cannot wrap my mind around, of actually living in that time where you’ve achieved that goal, you’ve made that money, you’ve given that value, you’ve achieved it, and what does it feel like and you need to live there. I’m Stefanie and I created the She Build School. It’s a massive success. I can’t believe how many people I have helped, how many women now feel more empowered to take on things in their life, both personally and professionally, and just freaking taking care of crap at their house, and not feeling like they can’t do something. And just, it’s changed my life. So that’s me just living as if it’s come true. (12:20)

•  We’re on that road. We’re on that path. I’ve made it, and the more you live there, it’s like the dream feels more in reach and it gives you more confidence and just such a beautiful kind of journey I’m swimming through right now, you know? And I’m really trying to not completely lose myself and not completely let this dream I have dissipated because of the current circumstances of my life, with my husband and all of this doctor stuff. I haven’t handled it well today, but I’m just trying to re-gather and re-focus and just went for a walk and hang out with my dogs, enjoying nature, listening to the birds and the Crickets, and re-grounding myself and go, ok, I’m going to love my husband well, I’m going to take care of him, and I’m also going to pursue my dreams and run my business and do it well, and love my kids, and take care of myself.  (14:17)
