Fearlessly Shine in 2017!

Merry Christmas and Happy New Year!

I’m a few days late and a few days early on the holiday greetings!  I woke up to a quiet house grabbed some coffee and thought I would do a little reflection of 2016 and looking forward into 2017 before my house gets crazy!  We have family staying from Nebraska and together we are a wild and rowdy bunch!

Last December, for the first time I jumped on the “Word of the Year” train instead of doing New Years Resolutions.  Epic decision that brought amazing results!  I set out to pick a word for 2016 that would help influence my decisions, motivation, attitude…basically all things personal and professional.  The word FEARLESS popped up over and over.  So FEARLESS it was!  Which also led to the the tagline for my business.  Live Fearless…Be Epic which definitely had to start with me.  I have spent an entire year being pushed and pulled out of my comfort zone, taking risks, completing a ton of “firsts” in my business and trying not to back down or run the other way even when I was scared or insecurity creeped in.  It was important for me to surround myself with peeps that knew what I had set out to do, so they could hold me accountable, encourage and remind me of my goals. They did not disappoint! This was also a game changer for me…seriously grab an accountability person for the new year!

So now it’s almost 2017 and I have been on the search for the perfect word for a couple months and there is a little bit of pressure, because I feel like I knocked it out of the park on the first round.  For months the word SHINE has been everywhere as I was  focusing on where I wanted to go in 2017.  I want to build upon the momentum I had already created and SHINE fits perfectly.  It is time for me to step into the beauty of what I accomplished this past year and take it to the next level.

So in 2017 it’s time to SHINE!  The first way I am going to focus on this word is to be more present and prepared right out of the gates in the new year.  That is a perfectly SHINY way to begin the new year!  I would love for you to ditch the New Years Resolutions with me and focus on a Word of the Year and SHINE! So what will your word of the year be?

Live Fearless…Be Epic and SHINE!!!




FEARLESS Resolutions for 2016!

It’s  December 31st and it’s time (possibly past time) to talk about resolutions, goals, and all the amazing things that will be different in 2016! I have been thinking about the new year and all the possibilities for weeks now! I am confident that 2016 is going to be epic!

I did a little research and found out that 25% of people quit on their resolutions before the end of week one and 70% of people abandon their Resolutions by January 31st.  Only 8% of people achieve their New Years Resolutions?!?!  Doesn’t that get you motivated to set a few resolutions and goals for 2016? I know these should be shocking stats, but they aren’t.  Truthfully I may not bail during week one, but many times I quit by the end of January on a few.

Over the years I have spent a lot of time setting personal resolutions and goals to solve problems and “fix things” assuming it would bring the perfect life.  You know the kind of life that is easy and problem free!  Too bad that doesn’t exist and honestly what fun would that be?  Topping my resolution list was always to lose weight, be more organized, exercise more (or at all) and the list goes on and on looking similar year after year.  I have also made business resolutions or goals in response to comparing my business to what others were doing and achieving. The problem is that those resolutions & goals didn’t inspire me or connect to the vision for my business.  I was stuck in comparison and that is never effective in creating the results I want personally or professionally. So in 2016 I am putting a new spin on my resolutions. I’m not doing it! 

Yep that’s right the queen of goals is not doing it!  I LOVE LOVE LOVE goals and everything about them, but this year I am changing it up! I am not making a long list of goals for every area of my life and business.  In 2016 I am going to focus on one word that will be the driver and concept that I hold everything up against for the entire year.

Drumroll Pleeeease, My word for 2016 is….


I have been playing with a handful of words for weeks but FEARLESS continues to be the word that inspires me, draws me into possibility,  and guarantees to push me out of my comfort zone over and over!  So for 2016 I have one great goal, that all the other ones will flow from  in my personal, professional and spiritual life…I will be FEARLESS.

What will your word of 2016 be?  I would love to hear it!

Happy New Year!
