Does Your 2015 Theme Pass This Test?

My 2015 theme is Play/Fun. (And this is a super scary, super big stretch for me, which you can also read about here.)

So, my first question to you is do you have a theme for the year?

Turn Your Self-Doubt Into Strength

Frequently, new business owners feel shy about their work, ability or credentials. This happens a lot more often than you may think. Many people lack confidence due to some inadequacy they feel, which prevents them from measuring up. I can’t tell you how many of my CABS students share this sort of concern with me.

How To Map Out Your 3-Year Vision

2015 is going to be your best year ever. Why, you may ask? Because I’m going to share with you something I have been doing every year in my business since I started. I really believe that because of this one thing, my income has always exceeded that of my previous year. The best part is it’s a really simple exercise that should only take you an hour or two. Make some time this weekend to sit down with a cup of tea and your notebook, and take action.

5th Anniversary of Decisive Minds

The morning of Monday January 11th, 2010 was one of those life changing mornings. You know those moments where life is never the same again. I had spent most of 2009 trying to figure out what my next big thing would be – my next reinvention.

Now that we are 5 years in I thought it would be great to share with you some of the lessons I learned along the way.

Kimberley Simon Helps Entrepreneurs Find Peace in the Storm

We interviewed Kimberley Simon who is really best known for helping people find peace in the storm. She helps people to really dig into themselves, to find the next step, find clarity, and disengage from the drama and chaos. What she does works in both the business and personal areas – in fact, you can’t really separate them. The professional is very personal. You are sharing yourself – much more so now than how it was in the old business paradigm where the corporate facade was everything.

Life, Biz and the Pursuit of Happiness – My Big, Scary, 2015 Theme

I never used to do themes for the New Year. For most of my life, I was more of a goals-kinda-gal — I would put together my goals and a plan in January … and then not look at either again until December. (Although I wouldn’t recommend this approach, oddly enough this worked better than you would think — I suspect the sheer act of writing down the goals was the secret.)

Top 5 Celebrations & Lessons Learned from 2014

I think it’s important to “complete” one year before moving on to the next. That’s why I always like to capture my lessons learned in my business over the past 12 months — and this year I’m adding in my biggest celebrations as well (thanks to some inspiration from the amazing Jenny Fenig in her year-end post!). Check out my top 5 celebrations & lessons learned from 2014…
