Capture the Celebrations, Milestones and Successes of 2017!


CelebrationsA powerful ritual to complete and honor the end of the year is to write down all the celebrations, milestones and successes of the past year.

The big accomplishments.

The little actions that have significance to you.

Business successes.

Life adventures.

BE-ing successes. Honoring who you were over the past year to get through, create, shape your year.

I do this every year and I’m always amazed at how powerful it is. I usually have an idea in my mind of the year and how it went. It’s always SO MUCH MORE than I realized once I do this creative ritual.

I use a mindmap format so that it flows easily. I like to leave it out for a few days because I always come up with more than I expected and I keep adding to it.

It’s so easy to end the year focusing on what you DIDN’T do. That’s where we naturally focus.

When you do this Celebration ritual you will be amazed at what you did and how you showed up over the year. There is so much you have forgotten.

It always give me and my clients a renewed sense of confidence and personal power.

This mindmap is a part of my Creative Business Planning System©. If you’d like to get your own copy you can do it here: Easy Creative Business Plan.

The whole process of creating your business plan in a more creative, feminine and intuitive way makes it so much easier than other planning templates.

The Celebration Mindmap is just ONE of the creative tools you’ll receive access to. I have people from around the world working on their creative business plans and they all talk about how excited they are to complete a plan AND use it all year round for guidance.

Let me know if you have any questions! I can’t wait to hear more about your plans for 2018!

PS: I also wanted to mention how amazing it is to look at your Celebration Mindmap year after year and see your progress. In your business AND in your personal growth! Very powerful.

We had such a fun time over on Facebook Live yesterday as I talked about business planning – some myths, some truths and why creative thinkers have such a hard time with planning. Plus, I shared my new Creative Business Planning system!

I know you can’t always join in during a live broadcast so I thought I would share the video with you.

I’ve been using these creative business tools with my clients for years. I’ve finally pulled them all together in one place, added some additional tools to make it a well rounded creative system you can use all year long!

And they are made for whole brain thinking… stimulating to the creative side and focused for the practical side!

If you like what you see, I’d love for you to get your own Creative Business Planning system special low pricing!

And I’m offering a bonus of 2 virtual retreat planning days. You don’t have to join us for the planning days you have everything you need to do this on your own.

That being said…it’s more fun to have a group and accountability!

Check out all the details here! Feel good about starting 2018 right!

PS: One of the many things I’m so thrilled about with the Creative Business Planning system is that you can use the tools all year long. You won’t create something and never look at it again… you can use these tools every day! It will truly make your business dreams come alive! Here’s that link again to check it out.
