I’ve been in Tucson, Arizona for the past few days at a retreat with my business mentor.

Last year, I made the decision to join a high-level mastermind program with like-minded entrepreneurs from around the world. Every few months, we all get together for business training, personal development and lots of “aha” moments!

One of my biggest takeaways from this weekend came from one of my colleagues who said something so profound that may apply to where you are in your business.

“The decision comes first.”

10917066_1049951455030820_4479997024698588459_nI’ve been a traveling a lot lately for both business and pleasure.

I’m back in the states on the west coast and definitely missing the warmth of Mexico right now!

Las Vegas was my first stop with my good friend Shana. I call her “Shana Love” because she recently became a certified love coach.

We had the opportunity to reconnect for a few days, and of course, turn up in the casinos and clubs on the Strip!

VIDEO: 3 Life Lessons I Learned While Skydiving in Mexico

“I’d rather regret the things I’ve done than regret the things I haven’t done.” – Lucille Ball

hqdefaultMy grandmother always taught me that the way you end the old year is how you will begin the new one.

Since I had decided that 2015 was going to be the year of “fun, love and adventure,” I wanted to do something to honor that theme for my 32nd birthday on December 31, 2014 – the very last day of the year.

And that’s how I ended up jumping out of a plane in Playa del Carmen, Mexico!

I gave myself the gift of SKYDIVING, which was pretty much one of the scariest and most rewarding things I’ve ever done.

Check out the video of my jump below! I booked my tandem jump with Skydive Playa and they took good care of me throughout the process.

Every year in December, I go through a personal reflection and planning process that I call “31 Days to Reset Your Life.”

I take this time during the last month of the year to pause and press the “reset” button. This is when I give myself the space to journal about what my life looks like right now and get clear on what I want the coming year to look like.

Have You Given Up on Your Business?

mac-glasses

I’ve seen it far too many times…

You get one negative comment on your blog. So you just stop blogging. 

You can’t seem to get more than 53 people to “like” your Facebook page. So you decide to shut it down and go on a “social media sabbatical.”

You plan a big launch, but not one person signs up for your online course. So you decide no one wants to learn from you and never offer an online course again.

You spend all day writing the perfect article for your newsletter, but when you send it out you get 5 unsubscribes. So you stop sending out newsletters.

You can’t seem to figure out Mailchimp, so you decide to stop trying to build your email list.

You conduct 10 free strategy sessions but no one buys your coaching program. So you stop offering it..

You see other people in your industry making money every day, but you still have yet to land that first paying client. So you decide maybe you’re just not “cut out” for entrepreneurship.

Any of these scenarios sound familiar?
