Deserted beach on a Tuesday in December...pretty OK with this πŸ‘πŸ»
I always vote for celebrating success with sugar 🀀
Just finished the last Dare to Grow live coaching session πŸ‘©πŸ»β€πŸ’» of this year and one of the things we talked about was making sure to take time to celebrate your successes πŸŽ‰
.
For the past month I've been evaluating 2017 and planning for 2018, and one of the first things I did was to go back through my calendar and write a list of all the things that went well this year and what I learned from those experiences.
.
I was a keynote speaker at a conference πŸ™‹πŸ»β€β™€οΈ, I on-boarded over 3000 new students πŸ‘©πŸ»β€πŸ’»πŸ‘©πŸ½β€πŸ’»πŸ‘©πŸΏβ€πŸ’», I got paid to travel for work ✈️, I hit rad benchmarks in some of my partnerships πŸ“ˆ, I had over 1800 people join in the Instagram challenge πŸ‘―β€β™€οΈ, and took a full two weeks off for the first time since I became self-employed 🍹 (that's over 5 years ago if you're counting)
.
So if you haven't yet, take some time to list out all the ways you rocked 2017. Because this entrepreneur shit is HARD and nobody is going to hand out awards or end of the year bonuses but YOU πŸ†
.
πŸ‘‰ LEAVE A COMMENT and tell me what you accomplished this year and how you celebrate success.
Happy Sunday πŸΆβ˜€οΈπŸŒ±
Grateful for friends who are in for that early morning hike πŸ‘―
Met up with @righthand_1 for lunch today. Fun fact: I met Lauren by adding her randomly on Instagram.
.
I wanted more in-person business buddies so I snooped πŸ‘©πŸ»β€πŸ’»πŸ”Ž through the followers of a bunch of local coworking spaces, searching for rad looking ladies πŸ‘©πŸΌβ€πŸŽ€
.
I added Lauren, didn’t have the guts to ask her on a lady date, and then a week later she posted a β€˜gram asking for people to message her for biz buddy meet-ups, πŸ™‹πŸ»β€β™€οΈ and so I did!
.
Taking a little step toward whatever you want is always a good idea. Maybe whoever or whatever is on the other end will take a step in your direction too!
.
TELL ME πŸ‘‰ What’s your best trick for meeting new people in person? Because it’s hella awkward as an adult right?
After realizing my bra matches my branding, my brain immediately shot off 50 reasons why I shouldn’t put this on Instagram πŸ˜’
.
Things like: it’s unprofessional, I never post photos like this, my abs are covered in a layer of cheeseburgers + tacos (#worthit)
.
And that immediate leap to feeling uncomfortable and overthinking is exactly why I’m posting it anyway. It’s 75 degrees in November, I went to class this morning even though I was sore from teaching + taking class yesterday, this is what I’m wearing, and I look hella cute πŸ’πŸ»
Naps, nachos, and re-watching Mozart in the Jungle πŸ‘ŒπŸ»
Pics or it didn’t happen?
.
How about . . . Pics or you didn’t make tons of decisions on how to rock 2018 in the cutest coffee shop while everyone around you was working quietly and you were all β€œOMGGGG that’s such a good idea!!” πŸ‘― Shout out to @alisonkinsey for being a great biz planning buddy!
Pssst...Did you read yesterday’s blog post?? Link is in my bio!
Currently: Writing emails while thinking about how I want a turkey sandwich and need to paint my nails. It’s been nothing but deep thoughts over here for weeks now, time for a break. πŸ€ͺ
Working on my 2018 game plan today. i was feeling pretty stressed for the past couple of weeks because so many things didn’t work this year that i didn’t know what i wanted to do going forward.
.
And so i read, and watched videos, and listened to podcasts, and talked to all of you to try and get something moving. And finally one little spark of an idea, a change to something i’m already doing, got me excited enough to make a plan for everything else.
.
i’m sharing my process for planning 2018 projects in my email tomorrow morning (link is in my bio if you’re not on the list) and i’m interested to hear how you like to plan - by the month, quarter, year? What tools do you use? Leave a comment and let me know!
