Why I Created YOUR IDEAL YEAR

Your Ideal Year Online CourseBy now you’ve probably seen that I launched an online course. It’s been all over my social media for the past week. Today I want to give you as much info as I can if you had any doubts about it and are on the fence about whether or not you want to take it.

I wrote all about how this course came to be in this post and there’s more info about the course on the course website HERE. So you don’t have much more time to decide if you want to take it or not. When I reopen it, it will be more expensive. This is my debut launch, so I’m offering it at a debut price. There’s also an option to do the course and have a 60-minute consulting session with me!

Besides all the background I already spoke about — the reason I created this course is because I NEEDED IT FOR MYSELF. When you are an entrepreneur in a new industry, the path is not created. You have to get out your machete and whack that path out for yourself. And it’s not easy. I struggled with it. I didn’t know how to organize my time or myself. I didn’t know what I really wanted to do. I had too many ideas and I didn’t know which one to act on. I’m more of a creative, an idea person, and while I’ve become a businessperson, I wasn’t at the time I set out on this journey. It took lots and lots of self education, introspection, reflection, thinking, reading, etc., to figure things out for myself.

Seriously you guys, the first year of being an entrepreneur was a dark one for me. I lived in an apartment outside of DC. We had just moved across the country, I had no friends in DC yet, I was isolated, and so stressed out that my face broke out in a rash for months. MONTHS. I barely left my apartment for a year. This is not an exaggeration, you can ask my husband. I had a few friends and family members I would call and talk to on the phone and honestly half the time I’d be holding back tears or bawling.

So if you feel that bad or worse, I’m telling you that it can/will get better. If you haven’t felt that way (good cause it’s awful), but you feel confused or even just a little frustrated with where you are at in your life, and you know you can accomplish more, I’m telling you that my course can help you. If a lot of things are going great in your life, but you still feel like you could use some direction, or need to figure a few things out about yourself, or you have a few passion projects you want to try — this course is for you too.

I see people making the same mistakes I did. Not knowing what they want, not knowing how to get there. Feeling overwhelmed with ideas and options and unable to focus on anything and actually accomplish any of their goals. It’s hard to see through all of the noise we have in our world today. We constantly have content and products shoved in our face on all of our devices saying look at me, buy me, try me, read me, watch me. It can be overwhelming. How many of you sit down at your computer to work on something important, only to look up at the clock an hour later and realize that all you’ve done is scroll through Pinterest or Facebook and click on articles, most of which are boring clickbait? Then you are annoyed with yourself because you’ve wasted an hour and accomplished nothing. And you do this at least once a day. If this has NEVER happened to you then you are a superhero and tell me your secrets.

I created this course to solve my own problems and I’m so excited that I can share it with you to help you solve yours. When you finish this course you will know exactly what you want to accomplish in 2017, and you will have a plan of how to get there. You will know yourself more deeply, you will think about your life on a completely different level, you will learn how to set better goals, create and keep good habits, and have tools and methods to help you accomplish everything you want to do. These tools and methods are flexible and you can use them for the rest of your life.

I want to share with you an excerpt from a book that has literally changed my life. It’s from a book called The Rhythm of Life by Matthew Kelly.

Everything is a choice.
It’s a hard lesson, because it causes us to realize
that we have chosen the life we are living right now.
It is perhaps frightening for us to think
that we have chosen to live our life exactly as it is today.
Frightening because we may not like what we find
when we look at our lives today.
But it is also liberating,
because we can now begin to choose
what we will find when we look at our life
in the tomorrow that lie unlived before us.
You have chosen to live this day,
to live in a certain city,
to believe certain ideas,
the people you call friends.

This was my first aha moment where I was like I CAN CHANGE MY LIFE MYSELF. While I was in this crazy first year of my entrepreneurism, I thought that by taking the leap the net would just appear, you’ve heard that saying right? I thought, OK universe, I’m going out on my own — show me the opportunities! You know all that BS about attracting things. I say BS because I think that the people that we see as successful or lucky, actually set themselves up to be successful. Maybe there are a few that are just lucky, but to win the lottery you have to make the effort to buy the ticket…

This quote made me realize I couldn’t sit back and wait for the universe to hand me opportunities on a silver platter — I needed to create them for myself. In the course I will go even deeper into what this quote means to me and how it affected my life. There’s so much to learn from just this short passage.

This course is the culmination of a decade of experience, research, trial & error, introspection, writing, and doing. It’s sort of like getting a workbook, instruction videos, a few therapy sessions, and a few consulting sessions all in one. I’m talking past reflection worksheets, future goal mapping, productivity & organization methods, goal breakdown worksheets, planning worksheets, and inspiring content. Putting a price on the value of how you will feel after going through this, and having a plan for your life and an in-depth one for 2017, is almost impossible.

Oftentimes I think we get in our own way. I know that was my own problem. My brain, all of my ideas, everything I wanted to try and do got in my own way of focusing on something and making it a success. It was so frustrating. I was just throwing ideas at the wall to see if any of them stuck with zero strategy behind it.

I wish it didn’t take me years to figure all of this out, but when I finally did, oh it feels so good. Now I have no problem saying NO to things that don’t support my personal goals. I have no problem blocking off time on my calendar and hyper-focusing on things. My head feels clear and focused and free.

If you are relating to any of this, then this course is sooooo for you. Act now. Don’t put it off until tomorrow where you’ll forget and then regret it. Start getting shit done NOW. Don’t wait until the new year to start focusing on YOU and figuring your shit out.
