“If you do good work money will come. And when you get it, take care of it.” - Lyn Talbert Click To Tweet

Have you ever had someone tell you that you should pick one thing and stick with it? That may be good advice for some, but it doesn’t work for everyone.

You want to avoid spreading yourself too thin, but at the same time there’s no reason you should start to feel trapped. We all have a lot of passions and things we know a lot about, so why not turn them into a fun business as well?

The important thing to remember if another project is something you want to pursue is that your work has your name on it. Is it something that you will want to be representative of you? Are you able to put enough into it that you’ll want it associated with you?

On this episode of redefining wealth we have someone who is truly inspirational, mega producer,  Lyn Talbert. Lyn has set so many records and first in the entertainment industry, started her own beauty line, and still manages to take a bath every day. Talk about someone I want to be!

    The one thing I took away from this podcast is If you do good work then wealth will
    come but you have to take care of it.

  • Elisia Ixchelle Campos

    My take away was if you do good work, then wealth will come. I also really appreciated that she talked about her “time” I really love taking care of my body at the end of the day whether it is meditation or a bath or a face mask.

  • Latasha Davis

    I gleaned so many nuggets from this podcast! My favorite nugget is the do not disturb sign. I found that I’m always interrupted when I try to relax.

    What I loved so much about today’s episode is that with Lyn is that she discussed her relationship with her father. My dad was in retail management and he was my mentor. He taught me things like pay yourself first and people will always talk about you, it’s up to you to determine if what they say is true. Work ethic is how I got this far in life but I’m at a place where I want to express my passion and chase my purpose. I was so inspired by Lyn’s bio and that is still evolving by taking something she loves (baths) and creating a product for women to practice self care. I loved what you have created for those who follow you Patrice (books, affirmations, podcast) because we get educated on money (book) while building confidence to change our thinking (affirmations) and gain perspective on all 6 pillars (podcast).

    The tip to take a relaxing bath on a daily basis stood out!

  • Cherell Cottrell-Daniels

    This was another insightful episode. My favorite part was focusing on retirement and not on saving for college. “You can always borrow for college, but you cannot borrow for retirement.”

  • LaKitia Woodard

    My ah ha moment was Lyn talking about how she makes time for her bath because it’s her bath time. I love how her father introduced her to baths and booked the hotel room for her to bathe while in college. It’s so important that parents support their children’s self care routine. I’m not a parent yet but will definitely follow suit when that day comes

  • Veronica Green

    Look, listen Linda! Ms. Lynn was giving us all the nuggets. My aha moment was when Lynn said she takes a bath every. single. day. Yes, Lynn! This made me think – I’m a full-time working mother, a wife and I have a household to run (like Lynn). Being a success in your business, does not mean to neglect your personal well being. Take care of YOU!

  • Benitra Aiken

    My big “AHA” was the story Lyn told about her father renting a hotel room for her so she could take a bath. This stood out to me because it showed that her bath time was so important to her that even her father knew how much of a benefit it is her. I need to strongly commit to doing something daily that serves me in a positive way. I have a new view on bath time 🙂 Thank you both!

  • Gifti

    I love the idea regarding the do not disturb list and the intentionality behind it as you mentioned Patrice! Awesome idea!

  • Tamisha Binky Williams

    One aha moment I had was you need to be just as intentional about self care as you are with your healthy work habits. Scheduling it in and making sure others respect your time.

  • Veronica Lockett

    I am really enjoying your podcast! It came at the right time. I need this inspiration to help me get to my next level. I have two toddlers and I never feel like I have me-time anymore. This definitely shedded light on taking time out to be a better me! Thanks so much for allowing God to use you to inspire others!! Muah

  • Ashley Taylor

    I am a huge fan of your Podcast and really enjoyed the episode about why making time for you is mandatory. This is something that I definitely want to incorporate in 2018. Look forward to next week’s episode.

  • Nikia

    I love the podcast and I loved this episode. It just reminded me that I need to be more intentional about “me” time. As a single person it’s so easy to skip that self care because you can get caught up thinking all your time is “me” time. I have to start being more intentional about scheduling time for the things that refresh my mind as well as refreshing my body.

  • Brittany

    Loves this episode! I need to schedule my me time just like I schedule every other appointment. Yes! Another great episode!

  • Juliette Branker

    This was my first time to listening and I am hooked! I loved the part where Lyn talking about saving for retirement. I never thought that our children can borrow for school but not for our elderly care. I should ask my parents if they are prepared for retirement….Thank you for the lovely, insightful, entertaining podcast!

  • Stephanie McWilliams

    This was my first time listening and I feel in love with it immediately! Lyn Talbert opened my eyes to the point that I was crying when she was discussing how she makes time for herself EVERYDAY and have a bath. As a wife and mother of three I have lost my identity and struggle getting it back. Another take away was saving for retirement because as Lyn, we started out family late in the game and I don’t want to leave a burden to my daughters. Thank you, thank you, thank you! This podcast was very insightful and lighthearted. I thoroughly enjoyed the connection Lyn and Patrice had during the interview. Now, I need to search for a “Do Not Disturb” sign ASAP!

  • Shenine Wiggs

    I love this podcast. Basically, bathing is self care. Something small but needed. We often can literally exhaust ourselves in the. clothes of yesterday. I also love no matter how big you are the small things matter like:
    ♥️ Bathing (me time)
    ♥️Being approachable (staying humble)
    ♥️ Remain teachable ( room to grow)
    ♥️Take care of your money and your money will take care of YOU!

    I love the,”Do not Disturb sign because usually as women we feel guilty for self caring, or enjoying our own company. But it’s a MUST to keep down the FUSS.
    This really spoke to me. Blessings!!

  • Dominique

    Immediately decided to have some “me” time after listening to this episode! Ran my water got my bath bomb, and told everyone in my house if it’s not an emergency do not talk to me! I was on “me” time until my fiancé left for work. I gave birth to my first child in October. I will be returning to work tomorrow so the “me” time is absolutely necessary! My favorite quote: You can borrow for college, you can’t borrow for retirement. ??
