Last week my husband, John and I were cleaning out our garage and I came across something I wasn't expecting. It was one of my old dream boards! A dream board to me, is a board where I put a bunch of areas in our business in sort of a mind map style. I write down what perfect looks like. If I had anything I needed, what does success look like in each area? It isn't a time to figure out how to do it, simply how it looks already done.
I glanced over it excitedly and was amazed how many "work goals" were on this board- and how many accomplishments were on there and how far we have come! I thought back to the feelings I had during the time of writing the goals down- how advanced and far reaching the goals seemed at the time, and how easy they seem now.
I have made many vision boards in the past and 90 day planning sessions are a norm, however the last several years these planning sessions have been more well rounded. It took a few rounds of "dreaming" and reaching my goals to realize that whatever goals I desired, could be written down. I really began to dream more often and to imagine what it would be like to have the people I wanted around me, all working together towards something amazing.
I started integrating personal goals in my 'dream' sessions like running a half marathon, visiting Paris for our anniversary, and even learning to play the bass guitar.
Well when I looked at one of the goals, you will never guess what was on this board that surprised me!?! I dusted off the board smiling ear when I saw in my hand writing "Start my own podcast". This goal was more like a dream than a goal at the time because I didn't do anything about it right away, but here I was, many, many moons later, knowing I had launched my own podcast.
I showed John and he smiled and asked how long I had wanted to do that and it brought back early memories of how far fetched the idea seemed.
Creating this podcast project has been such a cool adventure. Getting to decide what needs to be shared, who will be the guests and all of the details including the sassy song we picked to introduce it. About a month ago we recorded the first episode and it officially came out a couple weeks ago! How AMAZING is it that I achieved a dream I wrote down on YEARS AGO! It felt so good seeing that I had accomplished one of my old goals and now I get to share it with all my friends and family.
So... now that I have this podcast I am sure to get more inspiration, lean into some deep parts of my soul. I ask myself, "what else do I want to experience? What else do I want to create?"
And now I ask you, what are one of your desires? Maybe you can take this as a sign to take the first steps towards it. 🤩
... back to the podcast 😘. Whether you're an entrepreneur, a corporate professional, or someone striving to excel in any aspect of life, I hope you'll find valuable insights and support on the episodes. Together, we will redefine what it means to thrive in business, embrace feminine leadership, and achieve the work-life balance we all aspire to.
Here's the first episode- I hope you enjoy the introduction, and make sure you subscribe to listen or watch the upcoming episodes.
Sooooo proud of me!
Enjoy your Thanksgiving!!
