2018 Rebel Shine Summit is a hit with anyone ready to embrace their Inner Rebel

2018 Rebel Shine Summit is a hit with anyone ready to embrace their Inner Rebel

If you would have told me 3 years ago that I would put a Summit together, I would have looked at you like you are crazy. I am an introvert and this can make it challenging for me when too much peopling is involved, but I decided that this would not stop me achieving my mission!

So at the beginning of the year, I had this idea to interview people for a project and then it literally fell into the thought of “Why not put a Summit together?”

Technology doesn’t scare me and I have some good things in place, the only thing I needed was speakers, oh and setting a date for the summit.

And before I knew it, I had a date set in place and posted on Facebook that I was looking for speakers and within 3 days, I kid you not, I had 23 speakers lined up – booked and speaker agreements signed!

Let me tell you that whether you are an introvert or an extrovert, putting a summit together is no small feat and from my research on the interwebs, most recommend a 3 months strategy. But if you know me, then you know I take action on the ideas that excite me to no end.

What attracted my speakers to the Summit?

If I had to guess it’s the message of it all:

It’s time to rise above from what is holding you back and embrace your inner Rebel!

2018 Rebel Shine Summit

Now that everyone was scheduled, the interviews were rolling out one by one, sometimes three in a day. I didn’t get much else done because the moment everyone was booked, I got sick. Go figure, right?

Anyway, I did the important things in my business and then focused on taking care of myself. By the time January 30th, came around I had 25 speakers for the Summit and everyone was interviewed.

And I am so excited to share this with you for Free!

Why do you want to join the Summit?

Because it is your Time to Embrace your Inner Rebel!

The topics covered on this summit are

Your best year
Own your power
Unleash yourself
Elevate your life
Attitude of Gratitude
Back to Basics
Evaluate your Life

And if you read the first letter of each topic down, you will see that it says “YOU RISE ABOVE” because to me that is what embracing your inner rebel means. It’s saying no to conformity and saying yes to doing life – and business – the way you are being called to do it.

It’s time to squish the doubts and fears and for once in your life put yourself first. Gone are the days where everyone comes before you – and no we are not discounting being a partner or a mom.

But let me ask you:

  • When is it your time?
  • When is it your time to follow your ideas and unleash them in the world? When is it your time to take care of you?
  • When is it your time to take care of you?
  • When is it your time you say no to frustration and overwhelm?
  • When is it your time to elevate your life and own your power?

For 12 Days you will be able to listen and watch 2 interviews per day – 3 on Day 8!

We start on February 12th and end on February 23rd, 2018!

It is time you embrace your Inner Rebel

Your Morning Routine has an impact on your day

Your Morning Routine has an impact on your day

Do you consider yourself a morning person? Or more of an evening person?

I love mornings or rather, I love waking up and see the new opportunities each wake up can bring. It’s also a moment to reflect and create a fresh start if need be.

Now I am a morning person and my routine pretty much sets me up for the day and I can reflect at the end of the day what went well and what didn’t go so well. And then, of course, do better the next day.

This is not a moment, however, to beat yourself up because you can only do your best at each given moment.

But no matter the time you wake up, having a routine gives you a solid start on the day!

So let’s talk about your mornings!

Do you set an alarm so you have time to exercise, meditate, journal or just have some quiet time to yourself? But then you keep hitting the snooze button until you are out of time to actually follow through with your intentions?

Some mornings are better than others, and if you have more mornings where you hit the snooze button, again don’t beat yourself up.

But here’s what I want you to reflect on, the days that you did get up with the alarm:

Did you feel different?
How much did you get done?
Did you get that “me time”?
How did that feel?
How do the days you actually get up compare to the ones you keep hitting the snooze button?

Chances are that the mornings you did manage to make it out of bed when the alarm woke you up, your day not only went smoother but you got more accomplished. And the days you slept through the snooze button you felt frazzled for most of the day.

My mornings start off with a cup of coffee and 5 minutes of just being, although there are some days, I am up and out of bed and ready to roll. But I notice the days I take a few minutes to just be, I feel calmer in my day. From there, I am focused on getting my kid ready for school and out the door and then it’s “me time”. I spend time journaling and prepping for my day according to my plan or make adjustments as needed.

The days I don’t get that “me time” I tend to not get much done because I didn’t spend the time getting myself ready not prepped for the day ahead.

I share this with you because your morning routine can without a doubt set the tone of your day. And if you can absolutely enjoy your mornings rather than feel grumpy about them.

The Creative Rebels 2018 Game Plan

The Creative Rebels 2018 Game Plan

I’ve been thinking about sharing what my plans are for my life and my business and well how it can serve you.

I start every year with a vision using the Rebel Soul Handbook. It’s the space where I reflect on the past year and see what worked and what didn’t go so well. I check in with myself and see if my goals and part of my previous year’s vision is still aligned, or if it’s time to do some course direction.

I use the handbook not just for my personal life but also my business as a huge part of me is always thinking about how can I help you create the life that feels amazing to you.

Ironically, the 2018 Rebel Shine Summit was not initially part of the plan but that’s the thing about intuition and the universe guiding you into the direction that ultimately does bring your vision into reality.

And I am excited to offer the 2018 Rebel Shine Summit as a bonus for the Rebel Shine Bootcamp, which is my group coaching and mentoring program. A lot of my work will be focused on creating a community of support for rebels, dreamers, and creatives. It’s time to rise above from whatever is holding you back and embrace your own inner rebel.

But furthermore, if you are looking for more strategic guidance on how to create a business being you and learning how to stay true to your own mission, there is the Rebel’s Academy. This is my place and space where I share with you what I have learned in my 20 years of being in business so far, and will continue to add new content every single month!

With that said, I am going to share with you the challenges (FREE) and the course (not so free) I am releasing over the next year starting in March!

Repurpose Course is where I will talk about how you can repurpose your content in various ways to attract more followers and your income.

There is nothing in February as I am in the middle of launching and hosting the 2018 Rebel Shine Summit and it does take time, commitment and devotion to making it happen. And so that is where my focus is right now.

If you have a challenge or a course you would love to see happen, please let me know. My mission is to help you create a life that feels amazing with my practical, no-fluff approach to taking inspired and imperfect action!

And in my personal life here are some goals I want to share with you! 

Becoming an American Citizen is a top priority for me this year. I have to study for the naturalization exam and then of course file the paperwork and pay the fee. My goal for this to happen is August 2018.

I am also planning on traveling with my family. On the horizon is New York, New Mexico and possibly Colorado. I am looking forward to hanging out with my family and exploring the areas. I am also looking forward to a few day road trips, where we just hit the road and see where it will lead us.

Finish some of the remodel in our home. My office still isn’t completely repainted and I am waiting till it warms – hello spring – and we want to improve our heating situation as it’s currently still quite like frontier living.

Continue to Play Soccer because it not only gets me out of the house or away from working all the time, but it keeps me moving and connect with people outside of the entrepreneurial world. It’s good for my mental health!

So those are some of my big goals for my personal vision and I am sure I’ll be updating what’s going on here and there because well why not right?

Are you making your goals non-negotiable?

Are you making your goals non-negotiable?

Do you make your goals important enough and a non-negotiable for you?

Sometimes the most challenging commitment is the one you make to and for yourself.

I know this because I enjoy running but haven’t made a big enough commitment to do it consistently. I know it’s good for my health and my mindset. And yes, I too make excuses for why I can’t.

Like it’s too cold.

There are many ways I can find a way to run or at least get my body moving for just a little while.

Being a parent is often hard and demanding, special needs or not! And it can make your goals a little harder to achieve sometimes but I also know is the kind of parent you want to be, requires stamina and dedication.

And more than often, it can feel like you are failing your kids because you are spending 30 minutes on what you want to do.

You spend 30 minutes on your passion and feel guilty you weren’t present for your kids.

You can fulfill your dreams of being a writer, an artist or an entrepreneur without feeling guilty. If you think about the outcome, how much more fulfilled will you feel as a parent and as someone who goes after what they want?

Every day you are doing the best you can.

You can’t do more than your best.

But I really want you to know that you can be the parent you want to be, the artist you want to be and the entrepreneur you want to be.

Because it’s time!

Time to follow through and finish your ideas, projects, and goals.

You can have the career you want when you make the commitment and make it a non-negotiable.
You can have the health you want when you make the commitment and take the actions.
You can be the parent you want to be when you make the commitment to be that parent.

It doesn’t have to be one thing OR the other.

It can be whatever you want it to be if you are willing to stop accepting your life for what it is and make it what you to want it to be.

Prioritize your goals and get things done

Prioritize your goals and get things done

Do you prioritize your goals and the actions that follow?

When prioritizing your day and you are working towards your goals, one of the things that I like to do is make a list.

On the list, I write down the projects and goals that I have going on. I work 90 days sessions because the reality is goals can change.  And setting everything too far ahead can be overwhelming and gets you into Zone of shoulds.

And the zone of shoulds is never good if you’re trying to move forward!

Now that you have your list of goals and activities, it’s time to sit down and figure out what’s important. In my planner, I have my top five important tasks that I need to and I want to get done during the week.

I also have five additional actions that may be not so important but are still activities I want to do or that I don’t do them move to the importance list.

When you know what you’re working towards and what’s important, focus on what would make the most impact because that will help you be more focused.

Let’s say you want to write a blog more regularly, about two to three blog posts a week or even you know just one blog post a week you can do that in a batch session.

Pick a day of the week where you will focus on your blog posts for 2-3 hours and do only that during that time. You can schedule them ahead with WordPress.

And now you have more time and room to work on other activities to help you move towards your goal.

I like to do is batch sessions and squish the same and similar activities into one session for two to three hours on any given day that I want to get them done.

This helps me to get things done, have space for the days where I am not up to par and can still feel productive and don’t let my audience hanging!

Furthermore, I can focus on content for my programs or way of gonna be servicing and client sessions.

Make a list of all the reoccurring activities you know you’ll be doing.

You can

Write your blog post in a batch session
Record your videos and podcasts in a session
Write  a chapter or three in a session
Create art in a session

The key here is to take breaks in between. Say you’re spending a day recording videos then after each video take a small break so you don’t rush through them.

If you want to stay productive and have good content, those breaks help you keep your head in order and your productivity on par.

Go to the bathroom, take a quick walk or just get some fresh air.

They don’t have to be long breaks and can be just five minutes.

So figure out what is important for the week and for the month or the next 90 days.
Rate them on the level of importance to figure out what needs to happen first for higher impact.
Schedule your work and batch sessions where you’re focusing on one activity for 2-3 hours
Create space for other activities too because all work and no play makes for a dull life

Follow these steps or modify them to help you stay more productive and focused on your own goals.
