Haaaaaaaaappy almost-2014!

Hope you’re planning a celebratory evening and a relaxing + rejuvenating day to ease into this new year.

If you’re anything like me, though, once the champagne wears off you’ll be raring to get back to business. I swear, some of my favorite days have been ones I’ve spent with markers and spreadsheets and mindmaps and my Box o’ Business Brilliance.

I’m such a nerd.

If you’re looking to set your sights back on your business foundation, I have the funnest solution (seriously, it all has to be fun – I won’t tolerate it any other way): an invite to my Clubhouse Coworking Day on Friday, January 3rd!

I pow-wowed with the current Clubhouse members, and they can’t wait to meet and greet some other likeminded, creative, soon-to-be/new-ish entrepreneurs.

2013, By the Month


I love doing this every year: breaking my year down into the highlights of each month – noting what I did, where I was, what I worked on, and what I achieved.

It’s a celebration in itself, and one that I’m always happy to share with you.

What you need for a super strong business foundation


clubhouse

Man oh man, have I done some overhauling with my Clubhouse.

I launched in almost 2 years ago to, um, less than desirable results.

Then, I overhauled it and “launched” it again… and then closed the doors ’til the end of 2012.

I was gonna write a quick post that says just that along with the link to check it out, but instead of just *telling* you it’s open and what’s changed, I wanted to give it to ya along with the why. As you know, I’m all about being transparent about my business goals, challenges, wins and decisions – and I thought it would be helpful for ya to get a bigger sense of how I came to make these changes.

Below, you’ll find the email I sent to my current Clubhousers last month announcing the changes.

Is planning to quit your job worth $2.99? (An Effective Escape is on Amazon AND on super sale ’til Tuesday!)


Screen Shot 2013-11-21 at 7.53.44 PM

This year, I’m especially thankful for doing work I love, the “ease” of being a Woman of the World (aka full-time entrepreneur) in the 21st century, and you.

So, when I started brainstorming a few months ago as to what I wanted to share as a Black Friday/Cyber Monday offering, it came back to the definitive how-to-plan-to-leave-your-day-job-without-having-to-live-on-Ramen-noodles guide I wrote in honor of my 2nd entrepreneuriversary.

More than anything, I want the things that I’m grateful for today to be the things you’re grateful for on Thanksgiving 2014.

I want you to not only believe that you can love what you do, but to craft a plan on how to do it based on your own grown-up values, needs, and preferences.

That’s why I’ve re-released An Effective Escape: Leaving Your Day Job Without Living In Your Parent’s Basement on Amazon, and offering it for a super low price ($2.99!

Getting you the stories you need to hear

Make Your Life a Story Worth Telling by Quotable Life on Etsy

Earlier this week I revived an old blog series of mine, The Recession is Bullhonkey, and I plan on bringing one of these stories to you every month in 2014.

As I start planning for next year, I’m feeling more and more like it’s uber-important to get you real-life examples of people who’ve discovered/are working towards/are being successful in their passionate, grown-up careers.

I know everyone who’s figuring it out/in the process of making it happen will benefit from stories like Denise’s and Rachel‘s (and Gaia’s and Mark’s and Maggie’s and….I’ll stop myself here).

I feel like spreading these stories is so key to actually having us believe that we can actually make a living loving what we do – and that’s the all important first step.
