Jean Sheehan: So it’s really questioning a very personal thing of, um, what gives me freedom, and then where am I over responsible. That’s why I’m doing the two lists. Being really conscious of one would probably be that people get to answer their own question of what can we do? What’s the action? It’s working out, what do I need to do? But always personal first. Always.
Samantha Riley: Welcome to the Influence by Design podcast. I’m Samantha Riley, authority positioning strategist for coaches and experts. If you’re ready to build a business that gives you more than just a caffeine addiction and you dream of making more money, having more time, and having the freedom to be living your best life, then you’re in the right place. It’s time to level up.
Really looking forward to this conversation today. Welcome to the show, Jean. It’s just wonderful to have you here.
Jean Sheehan: Uh, thank you.
Samantha Riley: Been wanting to interview you for such a long time. I met you back, I can’t even remember. It probably would have been like maybe 2015, I’m thinking, because that’s when I published my book and that’s kind of how we met and how we stayed connected. Because I said I’d published a book.
Jean Sheehan: You just went, oh, well, let’s blow.
Samantha Riley: That out the water, and then published, I don’t know, seven.
Jean Sheehan: Eight books.
Samantha Riley: So super excited to have this conversation. Now, you’re an expert in all sorts of things, but today we’re going to talk about sacred geometry. Can you start off by telling us exactly what sacred geometry is?
Jean Sheehan: Absolutely. Everyone remembers geometry from school. That there’s this and this has a result. It’s basic math. The sacred part means that that’s really super special and really fun. We think of sacred, like go to a temple and you’ve got to take your shoes off and you have to bow down, maybe light a candle, some incense, all that. It is that, and it’s really ancient and many lifetimes ago, whether people want to call it tapped into past lives or any of that sort of thing, it’s where people of, ah, great wisdom scholars, uh, that didn’t go to university back then, actually said that people, for their soul evolution, for us to have a great life in Phil and part we need to know this. And so this is sacred, part it’s an education of mathematics that align everything to this is today’s language, align everything that you feel great. Money is good, relationships are, ah, good. I know it’s happening at my age. It’s like having a crystal ball. So sacred geometry is basically saying something ancient that’s a mathematical formula that this is how you run your life. It is a formula run by the universe. So that’s probably the easiest I can explain it as.
Samantha Riley: And that was super easy. I really love the way that you explained that. That’s how, you know you’re speaking with a true expert. They’re able to explain something that’s super complex in very easy to understand ways. Specifically, what I want to talk about today is 2024. It’s January. We’ve got an energy, I guess. Is that the wording that you would use? It’s the wording I would use, like, what’s the energy of the year? Share with us a little bit about, and I don’t know whether you need to sort of back this up, but what are we going to expect in 2024?
Jean Sheehan: It’s an energy. Every single year has an energy. If I go to 2020 with a really interesting energy, what about toilet paper? That’s what the energy seemed to be, or lack of toilet paper, or hoarding the toilet paper. Yeah. And so there is the cat energy. And sacred geometry says that in this year or next year, whatever it is this year, these are things to focus on and that everything in your life is based around this energy, this awareness. And so 2024, I’m just going to go on a bit of a journey, because you also said it’s January, and a lot of people always do your, what do you call, um, them called now, like goals. Uh, it’s next year. I better do my New Year’s resolution by the twelveth. There’s known as give up day. Everyone gives up on their new Year’s resolution by the twelveth of January. Why? That’s where it relates to what’s happening in the seasons. So every season has something. Every month has something in general. Southern hemisphere is about, go out there, show the world who you are. In the northern hemisphere, it’s just stay quiet, stay at home, it’s cold, just reflect. So we got that as sacred geometry, and then we had the energies of certain things happen at certain times. So if I look at the basic numbers of 13, it just keeps going around the cycle. The same thing happened. But we’re going to go to number eleven, because when I go around 13, 1415, et cetera, to 24 24, number eleven is about responsibility. And people go, oh, my lord, this is going to be about me having responsibility.
Samantha Riley: It’s going to be so hard.
Jean Sheehan: I’ve got a nap.
Samantha Riley: No.
Jean Sheehan: The universe says in this number, it’s all about two things. Respond, enable, run, responsibility, where can you respond and you’re able take the burns of responsibility. Piss shoulders. And by the way, in medical tuition we hold responsibility in our shoulders. And then the number, when you look at the number, the one, one. What we do in this, I’m going to get a bit. I think we’re third dimension is we blame. It’s your fault now it’s your fault. And so we don’t realise that I can create anything if I have an oops and something doesn’t work out. I did the other day, I was having these charts made because I run out and I sent, uh, the wrong chart to the printer where the chart had scribble all over it from the designer. Uh, buddy, that’s okay. I take responsibility and say, swan enable. That costs money. No problems. I’m not blaming myself, I’m not blaming the printer. He should have picked it up. We were going to get destroyed the other template so it’s never used again. What that does, we always want to go the opposite. Mother. That gives us freedom. Number five is about freedom. So if I respond unable, I need to get this freedom. That’s what this year is about. Like it’s so easy, sexy, simple. Okay, then I’m responsible, respond and able. And I go able to do anything, which a lot of coaches, people teaching NLP, hypnotherapy, coaching, raz, reticular activating system potentiality, all, all that, those lingo words. It’s like I’m, uh, super able. So that’s where watching this year that anything comes up. I am able. I’m going to respond rather than react. React is let’s react. It’s respond and the response is okay, so made mistake, no problems. I’ll, um, make it happen. And then it’s the freedom and the freedom is in the mind. So that’s our basic, basic energy of 2024. But then there’s one more thing. This year is all about respect. Mhm. And respect. People don’t understand respect held in the organ of the heart. It’s all about does this actually make me feel good on that level? I’m going to respond where that doesn’t make me feel good and I need to set boundaries. Um, so it’s a delicious year of empowerment. Every year is. But, um, power to go. Responsibility, freedom, respect. Okay, no problems. I’m going to action lapse. So that’s a short version of it.
Samantha Riley: Just before you go any further, I want to ask a question, because my brain needs to close this loop and other people might be in this place. Where did the eleven come from?
Jean Sheehan: Bingo. So if you look at this crazy pattern of a circle with a star of day in the moment, which is not the star of day, but looks like the numbers go, one, two, three. And I keep counting around until I get a letter. Then if I go, 13, 14, 15, 16, 17, 18, 19, 21, two, three, four. I’ve landed in number eleven. It’s a bit like snakes and ladders. I’ve landed on a ladder. Go up snake, go down. We do the opposite. We go up a snake and down ladder. And so here, that’s why I said, if you know the basic numbers of sacred geometry, that when it’s 2000, um, and 37, it’s a number eleven again. Mhm. So that’s where the eleven has come in, that it’s a series. So great question. Because a lot of people go, where’s the eleven? We’re 2024.
Samantha Riley: We’re confused. I don’t understand.
Jean Sheehan: And then not understanding because a lot of people say, is this numerology? And it’s not. Numerology has its own dynamic, powerful energy. This is mathematical formulas of universe is saying, do this, do this, and you have your best life. Just follow the bouncing ball is a journey in the process of the evolution. So 2018, where’d I get 18 from? It’s written here, 518. The numbers can go around. Everyone was going, I’m free. I can do this. Yeah. That’s amazing. There’s this sense of freedom as a nice hand. 2019 was all about express yourself differently. So people were trying to express themselves differently, from outfits to speaking up to, I’m going to change careers, I’m not going to wear that colour anymore. Uh, 2020, which everyone loved that year, was all about be beside yourself. And that’s where everyone was. They were like, beside themselves. So if I’m going to express myself differently, I’ve actually got to look at myself and go, how am I going to express myself differently? A lot of people went through a process that they let, for me, get the courses online. I’ve been asking years, get medical tuition online. No. Okay. I’m beside myself. I can’t travel. I had all these plans to travel overseas to teach online. Okay. 2021. Oh, my gosh. That’s me. This is me. I teach online, offline 2022. Number nine. Okay. Something has to finish, and the finish can be a limitation of I can’t teach online and offline 2023 that we’ve just done the monkey mind. Number ten is all about the monkey mind. And I always say it’s kind mind and magic of thinking big. But a lot of people in 2023 struggled and had that little monkey mind. I can’t do it.
Samantha Riley: Yes, absolutely.
Jean Sheehan: So that’s why I say it’s a journey, even in the process, when I’m just a. Yep, actually, a journey of how we’re evolving and the soul.
Samantha Riley: So, using the number eleven in sacred.
Jean Sheehan: Geometry, what are some of the things.
Samantha Riley: That we can look out for, specifically as coaches, as business owners and entrepreneurs? What are some of the things that we can look out for? And how can we use this energy to help us to get the most from it?
Jean Sheehan: One of the things, especially in business, is taking responsibility. So one of the things I did, ready for this year, is go through all my contracts online, offline, written, review them all to see where am I responsible as a business. I’m, um, contacting at SEC and office of beer training and all that sort of thing. Make sure all my things are up to date. One of the rules in Australia is if there’s a change of mind, I am responsible to offer that Gertrude decides to change of mind. I’m responsible to say, thank you so much, you can change your mind, but we have a no refund policy for change of mind. According to Adsec, it’s written in the documentation. But I’m going to have some freedom, number five, and say, however, I’m going to give you one month that you can come to something else of the same value, which then is value add for the time. So, checking contracts, responsibility, it’s also knowing the energy of that they, the clients may not take responsibility. So what’s an example? Um, that they didn’t read the contract. Yeah, but I didn’t read the contract. I just trusted you. That is not my responsibility. And it’s not about going into defence, a patent with the client, it’s just knowing. Breathe. I took all the responsibilities to support that person. I’ve read the contract on the theatre, I gave it to them, um, I gave them an opportunity to be responsible. So there we go. It’s all good. And that gives peace of mind to the person as the owner. In regards to coaches, for example, and responsibility, it’s, um, understandably because coaches have got a heart like this. Huge.
Samantha Riley: Absolutely.
Jean Sheehan: And want to see the potential on the other person. They want to see them amazing. It’s almost like a personal trainer, like, let’s go, let’s go. But they can burn themselves and off. Then taking personal responsibility is make sure I set boundaries. Maybe I’ll limit my times, I might say, to clients just text me anytime. Or have it, uh, like, I’ve got four virtual assistants. They answer my text, they answer my social media, so I’m not in burnout all the time. Personal responsibility. Do you need to get after I teach the next day, especially when I teach the nine day medical intuition on the Monday. I love my clients. You can’t contact me. I’m being massaged on the Monday we finished off. It’s Saturday. Am I having a massage? Do I have great food? Filtered water? Do I have a coach to support me? Do I have a team? It’s all of that as a coach. The personal responsibility of me. I’ve got to look after me before I’m going out. And business owners as well. Responsibility of your team. So as soon as we started back this year, my team and I had a meeting.
Samantha Riley: And it’s.
Jean Sheehan: Right. Let’s just define what’s your responsibility, what’s mine. And I know late last year, a couple of them were saying, jean, can you just cheque? Is this the right thing they’ve been doing for four years? Don’t ask me to cheque. It’s your responsibility. Cheque. Double cheque. Get one of the other team members to cheque and, um, give it to me when it’s finished. So it’s passing on a gift of responsibility for others as well that ultimately brings in the opposite number. This freedom that everyone’s wanting, freedom of time, money, thoughts, all of that sorting. Yeah, it’s interesting.
Samantha Riley: Well, actually, it’s not interesting because it’s in the energy. Right?
Jean Sheehan: Yeah.
Samantha Riley: But I’m thinking as you’re talking. So on the last day of the year, Leon and I sit down and we review our year. And it’s a thing that we’ve done for the last few years, is that we take the afternoon out and we usually open a bottle of wine and we journal. We journal separately, and then we kind of come together. And one of the big things that came up for us both, and we talked about this on a podcast a couple of weeks ago, was there were sort of three lessons that we took out of 2023. And one of them was that we let our boundaries lax a little bit. And that, for us, that 2024, we wanted to tighten up our boundaries for the reason that when our boundaries are tighter, we’re able to offer support more to the people in our world, to our clients, to our community. So it’s interesting. We know that the energy doesn’t finish on midnight on the 31 December and start the new energy, but we were obviously feeling into this. This was a big theme that we talked about. And when I say we do this for journaling, I think we spent at least 6 hours on it this year. We don’t normally spend that long but we really got into a great conversation of unpacking um it and this was something big and we were talking about well what does that look like? What do these boundaries look like? How are we going to set these boundaries? And it’s a conversation that has continued and even was on uh, as you were mentioning with your team literally 2 hours ago was a conversation on our team meeting.
Jean Sheehan: And you’re right, the energy, because this is quantum field so it’s not linear time. Energy of 2024 came in on the 11 November at 1111 and energy will continue to the 26 January next year. So there’s an overlap so that people can. And what’s the boundary like? Boundaries, uh, people say it’s a rule. No one of my boundaries is when you come to an offline about my favourite colour is gold and we have this bag that’s gold sparkles. As soon as people enter you have to put your mobile phone in and now you have to put your smartwatch, digital, apple, all of that in that thing. And people are like uh, uh. And I explain, why do I do that? We become a society that’s like this. Yeah, I’m listening. What’s that? Uh, hello? And so you can’t be present.
Samantha Riley: That’s my boundary.
Jean Sheehan: You come and play with me. Phone and smartwatch in the gold bag. You will get them at the breaks. But there’s an emergency, you will get.
Samantha Riley: Them at the break.
Jean Sheehan: We once upon a time didn’t have a phone. Uh, and so those that uh come to my. It was so cute. Those that have been to my courses then they handed over the phone without even the gold bag being there. They went okay, which is called respect. This is what gene likes. This is if jeans have that I feel good. It’s a knock on effect. And so they set a boundaries saying, if you come into my house to play what I call take your shoes off for they’re not rules. It’s uh, just this is what I need to feel respected. Uh, so yeah, boundaries are massive this year.
Samantha Riley: And from a business owner’s perspective, just on top of that, it’s not just, this is what I need to feel good is this is what I need to show up at my best so I can give you my best.
Jean Sheehan: Yeah, absolutely. Boundaries with uh, when I book the venues. No, we’ve got to have this and this. And this. No lies. Like, minties are not allowed. Usually. It’s like, no, I teach no sugar. There’s always the way which those things then bring an energy that, when someone steps into your field, it’s like, uh, there’s like a match of energy and a certain respect. It uplifts them as well. Appliance get uplifted as well. Yeah.
Samantha Riley: And you mentioned emergency before, and that was something else that came up for us, is that someone else’s emergency is no longer our emergency. And I think that when you think about it like that, and like you say in the. We didn’t have mobile phones, and the emergencies sorted themselves out. We still found out what we needed to find out. And it’s freeing. And I guess that’s your five. That’s the freedom, right? You were already pointing before it even came out. Exactly.
Jean Sheehan: Yeah.
Samantha Riley: Uh, boundaries create freedom.
Jean Sheehan: Uh, and it’s freedom of the mind. People think I’m free. Like, I’ve got so many clients that are millionaires, billionaires, and, um, people go, uh, once I’m a millionaire or a billionaire, I’ll be so free. They’ve got more responsibility. And there’s that thing of, they supposedly got freedom with money, but the more they have, the more responsibility you have. They need to set boundaries. They need to be able to go, what’s the freedom? And freedom is in the mind. It’s not what we have on freer. Because I, uh, just need to hold on to this one. I’m listening to you. Yeah, I’m listening. Or wait, what happened? Let’s entrapment by the flock. What about just being white? Respond unable. And if you learn and be pronounced, you are so much more able than shattered everywhere. And in fact, they talk about when you’re Multitask, which women are known for multitasking. When you multitask, can’t get anything done. And if I’m focused on running one of the magazine articles that I write for, and then a team comes in and says, oh, uh, but Jean, I need. You’re in this zone. And then 25 minutes to get back in the zone.
Samantha Riley: Well, uh, 25 would have to be a minimum. There are some times where if I’m knocked out of that zone, I cannot get it back in the same way. Once that creativity is stopped, it’s like it goes in a different direction. It doesn’t continue in the same direction.
Jean Sheehan: No. And that relates to mathematics, that I’m responding and able. I’m focused on writing the magazine article. In comes one of my team says, something so that they can have freedom. I go into over responsibility for them rather than saying not now and then. That gets me entrapment because the opposite freedom is entrapment. And so there’s actually a mathematical formula and it happens every year the opposite number. And it’s just what am I responsible for? So you’re saying business owners, coaches or even personal, what am I responsible for? It could be just bitter with a cup of tea, ice water, champagne. List all the things you’re responsible for, personally or professionally. The children, those sort of business owners, coaches with children or animals. Where are you responsible for the animal behaving that way? What’s going to give you freedom? All these responsibilities? They yours? Are they really the emergency? Like, is they yours? Do you have to have that?
Samantha Riley: Um, while you were talking, something came up for me and uh, you just answered it then. But I want to touch on, um, it for people that weren’t on my train of thought, which no one was.
Jean Sheehan: What?
Samantha Riley: Right, you’re talking about responsibility.
Jean Sheehan: And is it really something that.
Samantha Riley: I was having a conversation with a really good friend just now and he’s an amazing coach. And we were talking about the difference between the responsibility of us giving our clients our genius, uh, our services, our training, and the difference of the responsibility of feeling that they have to get the success or get the result. Result is the word I was looking for because we’re not actually responsible for their result and we can’t force that. And I wanted to tap into that a little bit more from your perspective because, uh, this I see holding so many coaches back, uh, you were talking about their big hearts and what they do is think, ah, oh, I’m responsible for their results. But we ever be responsible for someone else’s results? Is there something that you can add to that?
Jean Sheehan: Absolutely. So we’ve got the basic responsibility is that my and writing a list, as we all know, the rad we’re conscious of uh, what and writing it, it’s like, uh, uh. And then we can clarify and define and whatever, but then incomes, personal responsibility. And part of my awareness is I see inside the body. I’m um, not tablet, psychic or medium, just see inside the body and I integrate my nursing and I explain that each body part holds these emotions. So responsibilities in the shoulders and you hear people, um, just my shoulders away down with the responsibility because it’s held there. But then there’s another part right here on my panel that’s called the thymus gland. It’s our immune system and in that area is self responsibility. Self responsibility is the only thing I’m responsible for is me. And so if I give my client Gertrude, I’ve given her the programme, I’ve given her support, I’ve um, given her maybe an extra little gift of another week for free or something and she still doesn’t take action or she doesn’t get the results. One is that me trying to be responsible and over parent and over give ah. And um, whatever I need to take. Self responsibility, go. I did give her that thing, but all I’ve got to do is give her that one product programme, uh, whatever it is, give her that one thing. That’s it, that self responsibility. Just do that. Because if I don’t, what is the nonconifer back to me? And then we can go into oh my gosh, I’ve gone back into people pleasing and I learned that from a mum and I need to be accepted or keep busy and that’s a sign of guilt as we all do as coasters and self analyse, um, stuff. Yeah, but it’s like self responsibility is. Here’s the thing, they are so able, they are so able just like me. Are they subconsciously not wanting to be abled? Are they subconsciously wanting to still be in a disabled position? It’s not my, or take it from responsibility. It’s not my job to fix or to alter or anything if they’re still in that place. Is it self responsibility? Is it my own story that if I was that position and I got what I gave, I would have taken. Stop. Self responsible. I offered that. They took it, they didn’t go through with it. No problems. That’s okay. I can. If they said uh, is there anything else I can then say? I’ve got this other packet here if you’d like. If it’s a match. If. And self responsibility is like, and we do have clients that are challenging for us, there’s too much for me and my self responsibility care. So that’s the next level and I have a self responsibility gone. Uh, had someone for twelve months after twelve months of mentoring. It’s called the genie’s programme because I’m gene. Get it genie. Very good.
Samantha Riley: But.
Jean Sheehan: It just got to. And I’m aligning with sacred geometry and each of the months and whatever and each time she just kept going into not taking responsibility. It got to the end of the year of December and um, I just sent an email of I’m not able to support you. The flick back. You didn’t take your responsibility? No, I did is actually not healthy. For me to keep looking after because she was draining me that self responsibility. Um, even though, or in July I always take the month off, he can pay me $5 million, $20 million. The answer is no. That’s self responsibility. It’s like, no, my boundaries say, I need this space. This is what I need. That’s the extended bit of responsibility.
Samantha Riley: Totally. And another small part of that is it’s us forcing what we think the result should be.
Jean Sheehan: Uh, well, forcing encouragement. Enthusiasm.
Samantha Riley: Yeah, I guess it’s, well, I think you should be getting these results, but what happens if that person’s not getting that result you think they should be getting, but they’re getting something else from it?
Jean Sheehan: Then that comes into self responsibility. What, uh, are my expectations that I think Gertrude will get this, but she actually got.
Samantha Riley: Exactly.
Jean Sheehan: Yeah, yeah, love it.
Samantha Riley: So responsibility, freedom are very big pieces. As business owners, what are some of the ways that you would encourage or, um, have ideas for people to look at to bring freedom in, this big idea of freedom? Because freedom is a big word. Uh, we always are like, yeah, we want more freedom, but if we were going to really bring it in, what are some of the areas that you.
Jean Sheehan: Suggest that people could look into straight away? When I’m teaching this one to corporate world of how to manifest, I always say, set your personal goals first. Even though it’s business, you must set your goals first for your personal life. Have you booked one holiday, a, um, month? Now that could be just staying at home and mowing the garden and mowing the lawn. So look after you first. What’s your why? Go back to your why? Um, because in business we would have like someone that I was trying this morning. He started his business creating kitchens because he saw when the building industry was like, booming in Queensland, there was a company he worked for that was charging humongous price for really crappy work. And he went and he’s quite humanitarian, he said, it’s just not on. So he ventured out, created our own business, and he said, yes, I need to make profit, um, be responsible because I’ve got family, but I can’t do that part. And so in the self responsibility now, I got myself subtract because I was telling the story. What was the question again?
Samantha Riley: Uh, the question was, uh, areas that we can look at for freedom.
Jean Sheehan: Well, yeah, so freedom, what happened was he ran so much with excitement and this team that he got that he was working every day, he actually felt freedom. He actually felt free because he likes to get a goal and see a result. Now he pops into the business once a week because he has managers. But he had freedom by being there all the time, whatever, till, uh, he burned himself out. Take responsibility to take action, because that’s the next thing. What’s the action that you, not only personally, can we work out? What can we do? He went, uh, I didn’t set up the business to be there every day. I set it up because of that original. Why now? I want to have freedom, which is surf, uh, every day, pop, everyone I want to. So I was working out again. Do I need those responsibilities? What’s freedom? To me, the freedom for him originally was work every day, long hours, get the production out, whatever, until he burned us up. So it’s really questioning a very personal thing of work. Gives me freedom. And then where am I over responsible? And looking at the food. Okay, that can go. That would make me free. I can implement that. So it’s actually a personal thing. That’s why I’m doing the two lists. Being really conscious of one, uh, would probably that people get to answer their own question of what can we do? What’s the action I need for me, I need know for you. And then you might hear from other people, what do I do? I have all vas. I have a bookkeeper. Why? I love numbers. I don’t want to work them out for business. Then I have an accountant. Can you make it look all pretty? Can you make sure it’s all right? I have a masseuse that massages me once a month. That’s freedom. Because then I can be a vegetable on the bed and just. I’m giving, giving. I just got a receipt. So, yeah, it’s working out. What do I need to do? But always personal first. Always responsibilities. Have you got home? I’m the breadwinner. Uh, I’ve got, uh, a thing, uh, because that’s a knock on effect to the business. And then they don’t set the boundaries and they overwork and whatever.
Samantha Riley: Yeah, totally. And I think that it’s the. To me, like, what is freedom to me? That’s the actual magic piece, because I’m sure I’m not the only one in the world that has done this, seen other people doing things that really light them up and then trying it and going, oh, that wasn’t my thing.
Jean Sheehan: Yay.
Samantha Riley: I achieved it, but I don’t feel great for it. Uh, it didn’t light me up.
Jean Sheehan: Yeah. And it’s always a personal journey, and that’s why I sense for me, vas, whereas I’ve had clients of business that have had vas and got frustrated. I used to have an in person pa before 2020. It was great. Oh, my God, I’m under a coat. I do. I actually get to go out for an outing once a day.
Samantha Riley: Uh, one day a week.
Jean Sheehan: I get to go to the post office. I get to go to the banking shopping. That’s actually freedom because I get off technology. So it’s me always looking at, uh, which is personal responsibility, but we’re told, that is so selfish. No, it’s not personal responsibility. I, uh, have to do this for.
Samantha Riley: Me, uh, for people that are listening, and you want to give them one lasting piece in regards to the energy of 2024 or anything to do with sacred geometry, that’s just going to have them walking away going, that’s exactly what.
Jean Sheehan: I needed to hear.
Samantha Riley: What is it?
Jean Sheehan: Ask, uh, the question, am I responsible for this? Will it give me freedom? That’s it. It’s so simple. And that’s like, each number has a something. Am I responsible for this? Is it going to give you freedom? That’s it. The only thing that they need to remember on a question. And then when you got your answer, set a boundary. I love that. That way, easy year just to go and then catch yourself out when you’re over responsible.
Samantha Riley: I have everything.
Jean Sheehan: Heart shape, as you know.
Samantha Riley: Yes.
Jean Sheehan: Post it notes. Stick the post it note everywhere behind the visor where you’re doing a lipstick on the laptop. Everywhere. Just that cursor.
Samantha Riley: So funny, because when you were saying, I’m, um, like, I’m going to write down a postit note and put on my laptop, and then you said it, we’re so on the same page.
