WE'RE WALKING ON FUN-SHINE
This is the week we've all been waiting for!  This week we're encouraging you to have some fun.  What are some of your favorite movies, books and songs?  Time to revisit those things that help you feel inspired, bring back awesome memories, make you laugh or even cry with joy! All work and no play is wack so let's pencil in fun on your calendars.  What are some of your favorites? We can't wait to hear!

CLUTTER CUTTER FOLLOW UP
We had some really great success this week with the challenge, but more importantly, we discussed some hard things.  Change is never easy, and we have a candid conversation about low points and how we plan to resolve them.  We know this is relatable and real content and that someone listening my realize that they are not alone.  Hang in there you guys.  Change and growth is sometimes difficult but it's always worth it.  We love you!

Clutter Cutter
Time to cut the clutter you guys!  There're so many things that are roadblocks when you are working hard to get your goals off the ground and clutter is one of them.  It's almost impossible to keep your projects straight when you have piles of paper to organize or a bunch of emails in your box.  How many times have you forgotten about something important because it wasn't on your calendar?  Well this week, we're putting on our clutter-busting gloves and going for a knock out!  Put on a Rocky theme song and let's get in the ring to take down your disorganized work space.

Time For Some Action Follow Up
We all had a great week and hope you did, too.  Here's what we learned.  You simply can't make big changes in your life without assessing where you're wasting your time.  Social media, Netflix and chill way too much, or whatever your time wasters are have to be identified.  Once you do that you will be so surprised at the time you recover to put towards those important goals.  I hope you found more time in your day to get those things that have been on the back burner done.  If you didn't what are you waiting for?

Time For Some Action!
Ready for a week of action and no excuses? Well this is it! Your challenge is to do one thing successfully this week. Plan it and be aware of your time waster. Time for some action! Good luck!

FREE FROM FEAR FOLLOW UP
Say the title fast as many times as it takes to start taking those chances you've been avoiding.  The time isn't later, or one day.  The time is now ya'll.   This week we all had some great fear busting moments.  Someone even bought a MOTEL!  Yeah, we are serious fear.  You'd better watch your back!
28:39
July 20, 2020
PLEASE DON'T FEED THE FEARS
Feeding your fears is as bad as feeding bears.  Okay well, they both come with challenges, but fear can hold you back from so many amazing experiences.  What is holding you back?  Fear of failure, of disappointment, of what others might say?  We've all been there.  This week our challenge is to tackle something that makes you scared.  Just one thing. We've got your back, Friends!

SUCCAPPINESS FOLLOW UP
Join us as we share the things on our Happy List.  We even rediscovered old passions.  This was a great journey that reminded us that happiness is. extremely attainable if you allow yourself to be on the lookout for those things (big and small) that bring you joy.  
17:33
July 13, 2020
SUCCAPPINESS (WHEN SUCCESS AND HAPPINESS COLLIDE)
LOOK AT JWF COINING NEW WORDS!  Yes, It's possible to combine happiness and success.  This week, we challenge you to make a list of things you love to do and find ways to incorporate them into your personal life, and maybe even your professional life!  Disclaimer: Do not just quit your job.  (I felt we had to say that again). But if you really look at your gifts, you might just surprise yourself.

ME, MYSELF AND I FOLLOW UP
Follow up with Dawn, Cindy and Jamie to see how the week of self care went.  There were break throughs, professional wins and challengus interruptus (I think that's Latin for room for improvement). The important thing is that self care is not part of our daily routines and we're all for it!  How about you?
17:01
July 7, 2020
JUST ME, MYSELF AND I
If you want to have great self care clap your hands, (clap clap!). Yes you should have sang that to the tune Happy and You Know It and yes, you should have both hands up!  This will be a week dedicated to mind, body and soul!  I found a wonderful video on YouTube that I'd like you to view (it's only 5 mins, no excuses).  It will put you on a journey to understand why great self care is a must in order to pursue any other goal. Here it is and here we go! A Self-Care Action Plan https://youtu.be/w0iVTQS8ftg

CONNECTION FOLLOW UP FRIDAY
Were we all successful in our connections?  I'm going to say yes, because we all did something that took us out of our comfort zones.  Well, sure Dawn was picking fights in a bagel shop (not really, she was hugging people - how much more of a connection can you get?) but it was still a lesson learned for all.   Make these challenges your own and before long you'll see that you're stronger than you think you are.

Winning By Celebrating your Itsy Bitsy, Teeny, Weeny Victories!

Friday Follow Up...Getting to Know Show
Happy Friday ya'll!  Continuing with our getting to knows, we thought it would be cool for you to know some of our goals.  We have some completely in common and have had to pivot on others.  Putting it out in the universe makes us really accountable right?  Well, here we go!

Friday Follow Up - Into the Uh Nooooooooo
How we do saying no?  Well, unexpected challenges came up that had us really fighting to stay on course.  Darn Entenmann's Donut sale!  But we definitely had some wins as well.  We have to celebrate small victories, right?  Plus all these changes are going to make people a little uncomfortable.  But it's all good.  Keep moving'!

INTO THE UH-N00000000
No, we aren't discussing any recent movie song that parent's have heard for months in quarantine.  Today's topic is the awesome power of the word no.  Here's how this two letter word can leave lots of time for the things you believe you don't have time for.  Join us as we take the challenge to say no this week.

Mind Your Thoughts...Avoiding Negative Self Talk
This week we are trying meditation as a tool to destress and block negative self talk. It's been said that words have power...so do thoughts. And the ones we think all day  have more power than we realize.  On your goal busting journey it's important to find ways to avoid derailing your own success.  Join us in our meditation challenge. ***Forgive the wonky audio.  I put my audio editing skills to the test and well, the results were less than stellar.  I'll fix that on Friday!  Thanks everyone!*** Namaste.

The opening quote by Casie Bazay was really perfect for today.  Somedays that become nevers are far too common.  Get off that corner of Stuck and Stay and live fully in your purpose.

Mistakes, and Oopses and Fails, OH MY!
Failure isn’t a roadblock unless you allow it to be. No one celebrates failures but you should feel grateful for anything that helps you approach your goals with clarity. Sometimes failures do just that. Avoid the doubt and keep pushing friends.
