We’re nearing the finish line of 2017, Jadah, and I’m spending 3 weeks with my family vacationing in Hawaii. My husband participated in the Honolulu race and ran 26.2 miles, and I’m so proud of him!
When I asked him what kept him going when it got hard, he said it was the people on the sidelines cheering him on. People were holding up funny signs, saying encouraging words, and giving him bananas from their backyard to show their love and support.
There were stretches along the route where there were no people, that’s when he began to slow down and the script ran in his head of whether or not he could actually finish.
That’s so true for all of us isn’t it? Love, community + support has the power to keep us going in business and life. Having someone in your corner cheering you on, believing you can do it when you’re not sure and holding the container for you is everything.
That’s what it’s all about with the women in my Mentorship Lab and Love Over Metrics programs. Support, encouragement, dreaming, accountability, strategizing next steps. I would still be dreaming and drawing at the whiteboard if I didn’t get the love, support and gentle nudges from my coaches and mastermind sisters.
This month, as I soak in the Aloha spirit and sunshine, I’ll be doing a lot of reflecting, celebrating, and dreaming of what’s next. I encourage you to do the same.
Here a few things to get you started:
- Look back at your year and celebrate your favorite moments and accomplishments. What are you most proud of? (I personally look through my calendar and photos to remind me of what I did)
- Are there any lessons, a-has, insights that you learned this year? You can look at failure as feedback and wins as momentum.
- Are there any unfinished projects that didn’t get accomplished this year that still have energy and excitement for next year?
- What’s your big dream for 2018? How do you want next year to be different? What resources and support do you need to achieve that dream?
If you’re looking for a community building, business strategist to be in your corner in 2018, see if the Mentorship Lab program is for you. This private one-on-one coaching partnership starts in January 2018 and 2 spots are already filled (I take up to 6 clients per year).

And speaking of holiday… if you’re looking for one last gift to finish up your shopping (gotta love Amazon Prime’s free 2-day shipping!), there’s still time to pickup a copy of Simple Green Smoothies –– a book I co-wrote with my friend Jen. It’s being featured in Barnes & Noble in 2018 and is the perfect gift for someone who wants to transform their health with one green smoothie a day.
