First of all, thank you. I want you to know I appreciate you for reading my blog. It means the world to me and I am honoured to be a small and hopefully inspiring part of your life.
You may have noticed you haven’t heard from me in a while and I swear, there’s a good reason for it. And on top of sharing some exciting news, I’ve got some exciting gifts to share with you.
Before I drop my surprise, I want to share with you some of the things I’ve been working on that are just for you.
In the last few months, I’ve been a guest expert on a few different podcast shows and publications and I’m SO proud to share them. I’ve been lucky enough to be on some truly incredible shows and if you haven’t heard of them yet, make sure you check them out and give them some love.
1) “As soon as you open up to possibilities, the possibilities will open up to you”.
Together with Pascale and in-between laughs, I share some of the habits, mindset shifts and apps I use that will help you find the possibilities to make your dreams come true too!
Take a listen here (and try not to fall in love with Pascale's amazing voice and energy - I dare you).
2) "I was waiting for someone to tell me I was going to die before I started to do the things I really wanted to do"
This is my truth.
This was my reality, less than three years ago.
It wasn't until I had a health scare that I realized I hadn't given myself permission to play, to truly dream, and even to fail.
I had a huge list of things I wanted to do with my life.
Start a family.
Run a business.
Live in my dream city.
And I was waiting for "someday" when it would happen.
In my chat with Rikki, I talk about:
- How to take a big leap, even when you're scared (New job? New city? No problem!)
- How to deal with people who put you down and stop dimming your light for others (Hint: you're NEVER "taking away" from other people)
- How to stay motivated, even when you're scared, tired or just plain overwhelmed.
If you're not already a fan of Rikki's show, I know you will be after this. Click HERE to listen to our episode and enjoy as Rikki challenges me to share with you my best tips and strategies so this isn't you anymore!
3) As the summer winds down, you might be ready to start refocusing on your career and/or business. A big part of success depends on who you know and your ability to leverage your network.
For the local Vancouver babes, I’ve put together a comprehensive list of the best places to network in the Lower Mainland. As the official Modern Career Expert for I Like Her Style Vancouver, you can look forward to more articles, tips, tricks and inspiration dolled out on a regular basis. (Follow I Like Her Style Vancouver on Instagram and Facebook to stay in the loop!).
Now… why have I been so MIA?!?!?!
Well, I’m about to embark one my biggest adventure yet – motherhood. Troy and I are expecting our first child in January 2018, and we are so darn excited!
As excited we are, truthfully, I’ve also been exhausted, nauseous, and in a ton of pain.
Many days, it’s been tough to stay upright and eat something (anything!), let alone sit down at the computer and share words of wisdom beyond “I have a whole new respect for women in the world.”
So, here I am. As I enter my second trimester, I’ve started feeling better. And feeling like I can share, support and inspire you (aka. Do my job again).
From the bottom of my heart, thank you for your patience and trusting me with your precious email – and even more, your sacred time and life!
I’m spending the next few months creating the best value for you – creative content, relevant advice and to help you have meaningful work AND a fun-filled life.
If there’s something you want more of or want to know more about, send me an email. I love hearing from you! And you’ll be hearing more from me these next few months, popping into your inbox with inspiring insights, exclusive invites and only the best of how to create a modern career you love!
PS. I've got one more exciting bonus to share.
Do you ever find it tough to make a decision?
Do you spend a ton of time - and energy - agonizing over making the RIGHT decision?
You're not alone!
Knowing and using your core values is one of the best tools for decision-making. And yet so few people know about it!
Cindy Ellen, Business Energy Coach & Healer, (and overall Ah-Mazing woman!) and I recently chatted LIVE on Facebook and you can catch the replay here.
Cindy helps us understand HOW using your core values shifts your energy and what a difference that can make in your life.
That's all for now but stay tuned for more tools, tips and tricks to help you create a career, business and life you love!
