Are you ready to start 2020 on day 1 with all the momentum you need to make it your best year yet?
If your plans and goals in 2019 didn’t work out like you’d hoped they would there are a few things you must know that will help you feel better.
1. 2019 will soon be the past and you can leave it there. It will be so much easier for you to create an amazing 2020 if you don’t drag all your mistakes, failures and shortcomings from 2019 with you. The past does not equal the future. Get excited about the clean slate that a new year offers you.
2. Take your 2019 stuff-ups (things that didn’t work out so well) and turn them into your 2020 goals. Didn’t have enough clients in 2019, make it a top goal for 2020. Didn’t lost those extra 10kgs, your new goal for next year is to make it happen. This will switch your focus from what didn’t work into what you are going to do next.
3. You need a clear plan and discipline to make things happen. Hoping and wishing is not a strategy and rarely produces great results. Find the clarity you need, make a step-by-step plan and set routines and structure that will help you stay on track.
Hopefully this helps if you are feeling stressed, overwhelmed or worn out by the year just gone. Let it go and let’s get excited and strategic about what is all possible.
PS If you're ready to do it differently in 2020 and you'd like to have absolute clarity and be in your power from day 1, I have a super special Black Friday offer that you are going to love. It's going to be revealed in just a few hours from now so jump into my Facebook group (click below) and keep an eye on your email so you don't miss the announcement.

I'm on a family holiday this past week. I didn’t really ‘have time’ to take this trip but the consequences of not making time to nurture myself and my family were looking pretty dismal. Things have been rough lately so I made the decision to go, to feel better, even though it was far from the 'right time'.
It's helping. Waking up each morning to the sound of waves lapping onto the rocks and looking out to blue water underneath a blue sky, it soothes me.
I can feel myself relaxing, the anxiety of the past few months slowly fading. When I arrived here and I stopped needing to do everything, I suddenly became so incredibly tired. I guess I hadn’t stopped in a while because I believed I couldn’t.
I’m not alone in this, I know a lot of people who need to re-evaluate their self-care. I wonder how to do everything that needs doing, take care of everyone who needs care, including myself so I don’t burnout.
So I’m making some time to figure it out. How can I love myself more? What will support me to be my best in my family, my business, my health?
I came here because the ocean is my happy place. It speaks to me of expansiveness and possibility. Here I find ideas and hope and a feeling of being alive instead of just existing. Most importantly it’s time to reconnect with my vision stronger than ever and reignite my inner power.
As a coach, this is something I know how to do. It's something I help my clients with all the time. Now I must apply the process to myself (again). I've also got an amazing coach helping me grow through to the next level. I can't wait to see what comes of it because if past experience is my guide, I know that after each stage of turmoil comes the next level of beauty in my life.
If you are ready to take your life to a whole new level, stay tuned as next week I have a very special offer coming out for only 5 people who want to become their most amazing self and design their awesome life.

Not many people really follow their dreams. My dad isn’t one of those people and his latest adventure is gifting me and many others a real dose of inspiration and kick-in-the-butt, no more excuses motivation.
A few days after his 70th birthday, my dad packed up his bike, flew to Europe and began the journey of a lifetime. One bicycle, one tent, saddlebags and an old guy with a dream of adventure.
He didn’t let his excuses or fears, of which I could come up with quite a few, stop him from making it happen. In March 2019 he set off from Cologne, Germany and over the next 8 months, he cycled over 15000kms all the way to the border of China. When he got there, he turned around and rode back.
Every day of those 8 months I had to keep my own fears at bay, thinking of all the potential disasters and what-ifs. But if there’s one thing my dad has demonstrated to me time and time again, ‘if you want to do something in your life, just do it’.
Forget about all the naysayers, the doubters and your own hesitations. Life is short and you will regret not taking your adventures and achieving your goals.
Last weekend on November 9th, 2019, he arrived back in Cologne, Germany to complete his adventure. I’m so proud of him and once again inspired to stop wasting time thinking about my dreams, and go and make them a reality.
Have you been waiting for something? Putting your dreams on the back burner? Do you have a bunch of reasons why you can’t do something?
Take a good look at what you want to achieve in this lifetime and make your plan of action now. If my 70-year old dad can do it, so can you.
Here's a pic of dad last weekend at the finish line, being welcomed home by some family members.

If you own a business, being visible is a must. You must be seen so that people can get to know, like and trust you. It’s the only way that your potential clients can find you and decide if they want to buy from you.
Often it feels damn scary to put yourself out there in the first place – eeek! So many fears can come up just thinking about it. Then you get brave and share something about what you do or make an offer for people to work with you and all you get back is creepy dead silence. So you quickly decide to never to do that again.
You know how I know this right? Yep, been there, done that!
All it takes is a couple of mindset tweaks and some practical steps to get you out of the shadows and into the light where you can actually be seen and found by your clients.
Would you like to know how?
After working with many clients over the years on this exact challenge I’ve categorised the most common reasons why many entrepreneurs are still hiding away from their potential clients even though they know they need to be seen.
If this is you, I’ve put the top 7 reasons together with some great suggestions on how to change it, in my latest, gorgeous pdf called stop hiding and start doing.
In the pdf, I talk about handling overwhelm, perfectionism, imposter syndrome, being an introvert and more. If you know you need to show up and be seen more to grow your business, then this will help.
