“There you go!” (2.2.19)

Relax. Breathe in deep. Hold it. Let it out. Loosen your shoulders. Smile. Close your eyes. And Patricia, you’ll be surprised at how many voices you’ll hear, whispering sweet encouragement into your ear.

Kissey, kissey, you can do it / “There you go!” / www.tut.com

Be still, Patricia, be calm, and listen. You’ll find there’s nowhere you can’t go, no challenge you can’t master, and no reason whatsoever that you can’t have it all. / www.tut.com

“Stop asking people who have never gone where you are going for directions.” – NineFrogs

There you go!


The road to success.


How do you get there?

Short answer.

Luck + Preparation.

Long answer.

You’re going to have to work for it.

But if it’s something you love doing.

It will never feel like work.

It will feel like freedom.

Freedom to do the work you love.

There you go!

Here’s the thing.

Stop waiting.

For Friday.

The weekend.


It’s all happening right now.

So start living right now.

There you go!

When you are pursuing your dreams.

Or following your path.

You will, no doubt, come to a point,

Where you will have to forge your own path.πŸ‘ˆπŸ‘ˆπŸ‘ˆ

That’s because.

When setting out on such ambitious goals.

And you are creating something from nothing.

You literally have no choice but to go it alone.

There you go!

I’ve talked about this many times before.

When you are creating ‘something’ from ‘nothing.’

You are literally pushing through the muck.

Like the Lotus Flower.

Who grows, basically in dirty, swampy waters.

Only to emerge the most beautiful flower in the world.

So, this process.

It ain’t pretty! NineFrogs Daily QUOTE OF THE DAY:

That’s why it’s called growth.

Because you seriously.

Go through a lot of sh*t.

There you go!

I’ve said this before.

When I first started.

My NineFrogs business back in 2012.

I knew two things;

I wanted my business.

To be about Fashion and Personal Development.

And I wanted.

To be internationally successful (getting there).

Other than that, I was clueless.

Like, I truly didn’t know what do to.

But that fact didn’t stop me.

I tried a lot of different things.

Knocked on A LOT of doors.

Spent a lot of time at the gym.

Thinking about WHAT exactly should I be doing?

See, if you want to be amazing?

And have an amazing business?

You have to start from scratch.

Plants those seeds.

Water them.

And wait.

And you need to do this.

Over, and over, and over.

Consistency needs to be your best friend!

Yeah, bet no one told you that.

There you go!

I walked on that treadmill.

Everyday thinking.

What’s my next move?

What services am I going to offer?

How am I going to help people?

Who’s going to be my customer?

How much do I charge?

Although I had never owned.

My own business before.

I certainly had plenty of business.

Experience (well over 20+ years).

Here’s the thing.

You have to REALLY want it.

I mean.


There you go!

And then the question of what to name it?

I had no clue?

This was 2011, and I was new to the internet.

Turns out.

Every name I wanted was taken.

Long story short.

And I’ve written several blogs.

On how I came up with the name.

But I picked NineFrogs.

And the rest, as they say, is history.

I wish I knew back then.

Here’s the thing.

There is no blueprint for HOW to do it. πŸ‘ˆπŸ‘ˆπŸ‘ˆ

Sure, there are a million books.

Blogs and experts out there.

On building a successful business.

Add in all the podcasts.

And the thousands of so-called ‘business experts’ out there.

Only too willing to take your money.

Trying to tell you.

How YOU should run YOUR business.

I hate to break it to you.


The bottom line is.

YOU have to figure out YOUR business.

YOU have to figure out.

What’s going to work for you.

And what is not?

It’s your path.

And no one else’s.

There you go!

You’re welcome!

NineFrogs 🐸🐸🐸

And I cannot stress this one point enough πŸ‘†πŸ‘†πŸ‘†

There is a difference between asking someone’s advice.

VS asking someone HOW TO DO IT?πŸ‘ˆπŸ‘ˆπŸ‘ˆ

Too many people.

Want someone else.

To tell them what exactly.

What they should be doing in THEIR business.

You know.

So they can be millionaires overnight!

Yeah, I read that a lot.

As if.

There is some magic potion.

Like, if you do X Y Z…you’ll be a millionaire.

In a year!

There you go!

Side note: it truly makes me laugh.

I worked at Cablevision for over 20+ years.

And not one person.

EVER asked me if I was a millionaire yet?

YET, a few years after I launched my business.

I had people asking me, ‘so Patti, are you a millionaire yet?’

P.S. – I never once said to ANYBODY I was going to be a millionaire in three years!

Also, people suck!

There you go!

What I can tell you?

From my 7+ years experience.

As being a business owner?

That I haven’t met anyone.

Who was a millionaire after three years in business.

When I first started out.

I read something from Mike Dooley (The Universe guy) where he said:

Take baby steps, everyday. And keep showing up, everyday!

And, most importantly.

He said, ‘stop worrying about the cursed how’s.”

That’s right.

Stop worrying about HOW it’s going to happen.

Just show up, everyday.

And give it your best.

AND, Never Give Up!

There you go!

That’s really what it boils down to.

Finding your own path.

And let me tell you.

Finding your path is one thing.

Staying on it, another.

There are a lot of ups and downs.

There’s also a lot of being broke, scared, and anxious.

And yet, we still forge ahead✈✈✈

We keep pushing forward.

Knowing, that eventually.

We will get to where we want to be.

Not knowing exactly.

How long that is going to take us!

There you go!

That statement is so true!

Remember the line:

Never let them see you sweat!

That’s it.

Remain cool, calm and collected!

And never, ever, let them see you sweat!

There you go!

You have to stop asking this question?

How is it going to work?

Because we don’t really know, do we?


As Mike Dooley says:

Forget the “how’s”.


Do you think Bill Gates, Warren Buffett or Oprah?

Had any idea how they were going to be so successful?

Absolutely not!

There you go!

That they would all wind up being billionaires?


They were just doing what they loved.

And following their passion.

The success and money followed.

That’s how it works!

So once again.

The how’s aren’t for you to figure out.πŸ‘ˆπŸ‘ˆπŸ‘ˆ

There you go!

“Monday is not the day to be back at the grindstone.
Monday is the day to be back at your passion.
If you’re working for the weekend, you’re doing it wrong.
Kick a*s EVERYDAY!” – Patricia D. Bokowski / CEO – NineFrogs

Your job is to put everything you have.

Into what you are working on.

And do your best EVERYDAY.

Leave the how to’s to The Universe✨✨✨

Spread your magic.

Put joy into the world.

I don’t care what you do.

Because whatever it is.

You can help people.

And in the process.

You help yourself.

There you go!

What no one tells you.

You will fall more times.

Than you ever dreamed.

And then you will fall again.

Actually, you will most likely fall many times over.

That’s why people give up, because it’s hard. NineFrogs Daily QUOTE OF THE DAY:

“If it was easy, everyone would do it.” / Tom Hanks

That’s really what it comes down to☝☝☝

Like, whatever it is you want out of this life.

YOU and you alone.

Have to go out.

And blaze YOUR trail to make it happen.

You just have to ask yourself.

What does your path look like?

Because, at the end of the day.

That’s all it matters.

There you go!

This is a life lesson.

I have been learning lately.


I know where I’m going.

And I know what I want.

For myself going forward.

And I know enough to know.

That as part of that.

I’m going to have to.

Let go of some things.

And know what?

I’m perfectly okay with that!

As the saying goes.

‘you have to be willing to give up the good to go for the great.’

There you go!

I won’t go into the whole story today.

As I have written about it several times before.

Suffice to say.

My ladder was most definitely not.

Where it should have been.

Just make sure the ladder.

You are climbing.

Is one that is going to get you.

Where you want to be.

Don’t waste a life-time.

Climbing the wrong ladder of success!!!

There you go!

These days.

Everyday is an adventure!

Do I regret it took me over twenty years to find it?

Absolutely not!

I believe it was all part of the journey.

Everything I’ve learned. βœ”βœ”βœ”

Every experience I’ve gone through.

All the people I’ve met along the way.

(and I mean, I’ve met A LOT of people).

Did I mention I met Brad Pitt at work?

True story.

It was all part of the process. 

Every story I have to tell.πŸ‘ˆπŸ‘ˆπŸ‘ˆ

And trust me when I tell you.

I have A LOT of stories. β€œWhy you need to think different!” (8.1.17)

More about that in another blog.

There you go!

It was all part of it.

All meant to happen.

All part of the journey.πŸ’˜πŸ’˜πŸ’˜

Because I wouldn’t be able to be here today.

Writing this blog.

Because that’s how it works.

Because it’s all connected.

Because you are destined for greatness.

There you go!
