November Notations

Have you ever thought to yourself, " I don't need to say anything. That person knows how I feel"?

I know I used to be guilty of this. I used to tell myself, "they know" whenever I was thankful for or even proud of someone.

But then, I realized that the act of "telling" was not just appreciated by the individual, but also made me feel amazing.

When you tell someone that you appreciate them, are proud of them, or that you care about them it builds a strong connection and provides you both with a surge of positive energy.

That energy is then passed on to others that you both encounter.

The act of "telling" is critical in business as well as in your personal life. When we acknowledge the role someone has played in growing or shaping our business, it lets them know that we "see" them and we recognize their contribution.

With that, let's catch up on what I've been up to this week...

October Openings

There has been a slight change in weather across our state, and it's as if a door has opened bringing in a new breeze of love.

This week, I have been compelled by this wind to think about, soak in, and give back love. It truly is an amazing energy when we focus on how we can change the conversation in our minds and freely give of our hearts.

I am so blessed that I am filled with love daily. From what I do, to those I engage with, I am surrounded by the warmth of the emotion.

And I am on a mission to ensure that I am opening the door for others so that they can receive and feel the love the world holds for them.

With that, let's catch up on what I've been up to this week...

October Offerings

Uncategorized Oct 15, 2021

I don't know about you, but I am overwhelmingly excited about what October has been offering me.

I have been taking time to review programs, strategies, and goals we had set for this year, and in evaluating what has and has not worked, I have had many "aha" moments.

The changes that the season brings are invigorating me with the energy to make the changes needed to take our business and our members to the levels I dream of for us all.

As with anything, I'm embracing this time and seeing it for the gift that it is.

With that, let's catch up on what I've been up to this week...

October Oasis

Do you have an oasis? The word itself refers to a "green or fertile place in an arid area".

Your "oasis" is the place where you go to renew. It waters your soul and revives your spirit. This is why it is so important for you to identify where your oasis is.

This month has been serving as an oasis for me in all things. The year has been a journey without the usual nourishment I receive from events, and so I continue to create and honor space and time to replenish and "water" my soul.

From designing new opportunities to connect with clients and members, to embracing my curiosity, my October Oasis is where I am happily taking a break from the arid conditions of the year.

With that, let's catch up on what I've been up to this week...

October Outlook = Joy!

It's October and my outlook is full of joy! Why? Because "why not?"

Your outlook is your point of view or your attitude about life, and so I have decided to choose joy.

Joy can be found everywhere, from large gestures to the smallest kindness. One way to help you feel joy, especially on tough days, is to help another person.

I find the greatest joy in my work, especially when I see the face of a business owner that gets what she needs from a coaching session.

I also find joy in my garden. Watching the sunlight dance on the leaves of my favorite plants.

Joy can also be in my cup of afternoon tea.

It all comes down to your outlook and your decision on how you want to embrace the moments.

With that, let's catch up on what I've been up to this week...

Savoring September

The days are moving at such a rapid pace. Fall is soon to replace summer and the holidays will not be too far behind.

Once September arrives, I always feel like the year is almost over because the rush sets in.

And with all my projects and end of year goals, this time of year can seem overwhelming and exhausting.

That is why I am being even more intentional. While busy, I want now more than ever to ensure I am savoring every moment.

I do not want to look back in the last week of December and wonder where the time went. I want to be able to smile and say "wow" look what I did to embrace every moment.

Yes, the days will still go by, and I will feel rushed with so many things going on, but each day if we take a moment to soak it in, to practice gratitude, and to remember why we are on this journey - then we can look back with a sense of "awe" and happiness.

With that, let's catch up on what I've been up to this week...

September Serenade

Uncategorized Sep 10, 2021

Do you hear it? I do.

What do I hear? The sweet sounds of opportunity. September is coming in on waves of consistent change. And within those waves I hear the melodic voice of opportunity calling out to all those that will listen.

Yes. Amidst the chaos that is our times, if you listen with intention, you will hear something you may have never realized was there.

How? You must focus on clearing your mind of the noise. Turn off your television, put down your phone. Sit in the quiet of your workspace and get back to the basics of your business.

This is the time to ask yourself, "why did I start this business?"

As Simon Sinek tells us, the answer truly does lie in the "why".  Remembering "why" you chose your path is the first step to clearing the noise and hearing the tune of opportunity that is sitting waiting on you.

With that, let's catch up on what I've been up to this week...

Sensational September!

I welcome September with open arms, positive energy, and all my heart.

Why? Because I can.

Yes. I choose in this moment, no matter what is going on in the world, to choose joy.

I know so much may seem daunting, and you may even be feeling exhausted. But I remind you, that you have within you enormous power and strength.

You have the ability to choose.

A new month and a new season bring new opportunities if you choose to open your heart and mind to receive them.

I choose to move forward. To remember my purpose and embrace each opportunity no matter how it comes to me, as the chance to make a difference.

Whether one person or thousands of lives are changed by my work, I choose to remember that a life well-lived is a life to be proud of.

With that, let's catch up on what I've been up to this week...

August Ahas!

aha clarity connections goals Aug 27, 2021

I don't know about you, but I feel like I have been having more "aha" moments than ever this month.

Perhaps it is the fact that the times are driving more opportunities for engagement with people I may never have met before because we are all virtual. Or perhaps it is the time of the year, as I look to drive our goals as an organization.

My mind is hungrier than ever to learn new ways to provide coaching and community to the women that I serve. And that has led to an even greater focus on myself to invest in my mind, body, and spirit.

The most rewarding part is that I am having these "aha" moments exactly when I need to have them. I am a huge believer in divine timing and pushing myself of to let go of things when it doesn't feel right.

My "aha" moments are freeing me up to focus on the things that I truly enjoy, making me a better coach and human being.

With that, let's catch up on what I've been up to this week...

Authentically August

blog change connections vision Aug 20, 2021

There is just something about August that feels so real. Perhaps it is the realization that the year is over halfway through. Or perhaps it is seeing the plants beginning to end their summer growth.

August is a time for change and a time to prepare to harvest everything we have been working on all year long.

Our ideas from January are no longer dreams. We can see them growing in the fields before us, and we can clearly see what "rooted" and what did not.

That realization can be disappointing if we do not see the yield we had dreamed of, but I choose to focus on the "truth" that lies in the moment.

Consider this - bread is not something we pick off a vine. There are several steps from planting the wheat, to harvesting, milling, and then making the bread.

What I want you to "realize" is that when you look at your harvest, you may not yet see the end result. There probably are a few more steps to take to get to your goals.

So, keep going!
