And OMG – Best Life Ever: The Podcast is FINALLY launching in just a few weeks and we are freaking EXCITED!!!!! We are launching 5 months later than we thought we would be after saying goodbye to Hot Better Pop Radio last December, but everything works out exactly as it is supposed to. Sometimes it’s hard to see it in the moment, but there really is a bigger picture at work that we can trust in.

 

Choosing Faith Over Fear

REPLACE YOUR FEARWITH FAITHAND WATCH Miracles unfold

As I was doing my Best Week Ever process this morning (stay tuned for our Best Week Ever eBook launch happening in May!), I noticed various fears popping up about this or that as I looked at my week ahead: fear of lack, fear about taxes and business filing I need to get done, fears about not having enough time to get things done, fears about missing a workout (most fear, remember, is not a rational friend). So this week my intention is to replace my fear with FAITH. Faith in my abilities, faith that I am on an inspired path, faith in my big dreams, faith in my limitless potential, and faith in the limitless support available to us at all times. Fear keeps us stuck. Faith moves us forward. Fear paralyzes us and limits our options. Faith frees us and expands our vision. Choose faith over fear to create your Best Life Ever.

Affirmation of the Week: When I choose faith over fear, miracles appear. 

Best Life Ever

Wow! So much has happened in a year. My amazing business partner/unicorn sister Pua and I had the most incredible learning experience with our podcast, Hot Better Pop. We recorded our final Hot Better Pop episode in December 2015 and now our new podcast, Best Life Ever, is launching in just weeks and we couldn’t be more excited. We have moved to audio AND video now. We now record our podcast episodes at Eden in Love and have the honor to be styled by their epic stylists and Flaunt’s Christine Gardner does our hair and makeup and blesses us with her beautiful energy. All the new photos you see on my site and our Best Life Ever site were taken by the very talented Lenny Kaholo. We have been so blessed with such amazing support! Our Best Week Ever e-book is launching soon too and we have an upcoming online coaching program called Best Work+Life Ever that will be launching the first week of May. We also continue to joyously teach classes at Alice Inoue’s Happiness U.

This past year has really been about learning, growing, launching my coaching business, and working with Pua to create Best Life Ever. I participated in Ari Meisel‘s Less Doing Mastermind and spent 12 full months working with business and life coach Hang Boge. So much more has happened and I have so much more to share, but I will keep it short for this first post in the resurrection my personal website and blog! I am proud to share that I have created enough time freedom to dedicate more hours to writing, something that brings me great joy. It is my passion to help others create more time for whatever brings them joy and fulfillment.

To find out more about all the exciting things happening at Best Life Ever, check out kimiandpua.com and be sure to check out my about page to find out more about how I’m living my Best Life Ever and how I can help you live yours. Have a relaxing, wonderful weekend full of perfect moments.

Hot Better Poppin’!

Kimi and Pua

Just a quick update for y’all! Our podcast “Hot Better Pop Radio” (formerly known as The Secret Sauce Podcast, is now live! We release a new episode every Tuesday morning and we (me and the super amazeballs Pua Pakele&Cabot) are having a freakin’ blast!!!!!!! Seriously, words can’t begin to describe what it feels like for us to go from just an idea to a real life podcast! We are learning so much as we go/grow and keep pinching ourselves everyday – can it really be this fun, joyous, and magical?! The answer is YES!

You’ll be hearing from me again soon, either here or on HotBetterPop.com or both, but until then, follow your intuition, follow your heart, and follow your joy…it will never lead you astray. Your dreams are never too big. Get out there and make shit happen (Hot Better Pop is here to help – reach out!). You are supported, you are loved, and you are limitless.

What did the Flower Say to Her Friends?

Hey Buds! (Get it? My kids told me that joke). I hope your year is off to a rip-roaring beautiful start. Things are shifting and moving forward in my life in exciting ways, which is why things have been pretty quiet on the blog front. I am thrilled to share with you that I am working on a big website upgrade that is a part of my newest project in the works – a podcast!

The Secret Sauce Podcast, scheduled to launch in March, is a weekly show where I will be interviewing amazing people to discover their “secret sauce” for making life better, more fun, and more delicious! We’ll be talking about health, happiness, productivity, and the habits and hacks of high achievers. The mission of The Secret Sauce Podcast is to inspire you to collect ingredients that resonate with you so that you can create your own secret sauce for success! To top it all off, I know you all are going to LOVE my co-host, Pualena Pakele and Cabot (yes, her last name has an “and” in it! That’s how unique and awesome she is). Pua is my fellow trainer and training partner at Egan’s Training Center and she’s also my super magical Unicorn Sister (there are six of us actually, everyone needs a solid tribe of supportive sisters). We are so pumped to bring you cool, inspiring content and weekly entertainment. What an adventure this will be! 

I’ve been feeling the urge to share and connect with the world on a bigger level for some time now, but the urgency has certainly been building. The act of sharing this post with all of you is actually a big moment for me. Putting it out there in words that I am committed to this podcast project means that there is no going back now, and while I’m excited, I confess that it also scares the bejeezus out of me. Along with the technical learning curve, this project has brought up all kinds of fears and limiting beliefs for me. Nothing like doing something out of your comfort zone to really dredge up old negative thought patterns and blocks. As they say, if you’re not uncomfortable leaving your comfort zone then you haven’t really left it. Yay. Bring on the growth. 

I love the Anais Nin quote above and take comfort in it anytime my heart goes from whispering to shouting at me to get my attention. When it’s time for you to move forward and that spiritual alarm clock goes off, snoozing it only delays the inevitable, eventually you gotta get up and get at it. Leaving your safe and comfortable world, and all the effort that it is going to take, is the only way to get relief from the pain of staying there. Totally annoying, always inconvenient, definitely challenging, but oh so awesome. 

The beautiful thing is that when you make the decision to follow your heart, the universe supports you. As my friend/sister/mentor Alice Inoue has taught me, “When you follow your heart, you experience synchronicities that let you know that you are on an inspired path.” I’ve certainly been experiencing synchroncities and have been blessed with amazing support. Take for instance this sequence of events: 

  • I was early to an appointment and had a few minutes to kill in the car so I decided to catch up on one of my favorite podcasts, The Ben Greenfield Fitness Podcast. He was interviewing Christopher Kelly of Nourish Balance Thrive and their discussion about athletes and overtraining/stress/adrenal burnout made me wonder what my lab results would look like since some of the symptoms rang true for me. 
  • I reached out to Christopher Kelly, who is amazing, and did a series of tests with him that reveal to me that indeed I have adrenal exhaustion and some other issues going on. You can read a full article about my incredible experience with Nourish Balance Thrive here
  • The diagnosis of adrenal exhaustion ignites a new passion in me to reduce stress through technology, biohacking, productivity hacks, outsourcing, and becoming more efficient with my time and energy. I discover Ari Meisel and his Less Doing lifestyle and also begin teaching a new class at Happiness U about going from “Overwhelmed to Empowered” (sign up for my next class on February 21 here)
  • Income from my Purium business (organic green foods and health products that I use everyday) begins to give me the freedom to invest in myself and more time to work on my blog, teaching at Happiness U, and other projects I’ve been dreaming about. 
  • I join Ari’s Less Doing 8 Week Bootcamp, learn more, and get to know some truly amazing people. Connecting directly with online rockstars and entrepreneurs from all over the nation that I’ve admired from afar makes the world feel smaller and my big dreams more achievable. My podcast vision is born. 
  • After the Less Doing Bootcamp ends, I join Ari’s Less Doing Mastermind, confident that it is the next step to making my podcast dreams come true. And sure enough, the Mastermind is proving to be most valuable investment I could have made. I can’t express how grateful I am for all the support, care, and wisdom I have received from Ari and our Mastermind so far. But I never would have found my way to this place without all the other synchronicities that led me here. 

Taking the time to write out our synchroncities and support is an amazing tool for confirming that we are indeed on an inspired path and that “there is a bigger picture at work” (also something I learned from Alice, she’s so brilliant). Wherever you are in your life right now, just know that when it’s time to move forward, you’ll hear that spiritual alarm clock go off. Sure, you might snooze it a few times, but the time will come when the pain of the snooze battle is worse than just getting up and going for it. And know that when you do, the Universe will have your back. 

More updates coming soon. In the meantime, Join me for “Overwhelmed to Empowered” at Happiness U on February 21, 2015 at 2pm or come sweat with me at Egan’s Training Center! See you soon!  

 

5 Ways to Supercharge Your 2015!

Happy 2015! Whatever you want to achieve or experience this fabulous new year, here are some goal-setting/achieving tips that have worked for me and how I plan to make this year EPIC: 

1 – Get super duper clear about what you want! Think of it like ordering from a menu – you could order “a burger” or you could order a 100% grass-fed local beef burger with ripe avocado, fresh organic greens, homemade aioli, fresh baked gluten-free bun, and a side of baked sweet potato garlic fries. Be specific so that when you get what you want it’s exactly what you want. 

2 – Break your goals into bite size chunks and create deadlines for yourself. Get out your calendar and put some dates to those dreams. Turn your vision into actionable items.

3 – Tell the world (or at least some close, dependable, inspiring friends) what you want to achieve/do/have. Accountability is the secret sauce of high achievers! Break out of your bubble! Put it out there and watch the magic happen! 

4 – Reach out for support. If you don’t know how to achieve something or how to make your dreams come true, get out there and ask for help. Ask your friends, ask your mentors, sign up for classes, read, do online research, check out youtube, trade your time with someone who can assist you, join a mastermind (best thing I did for myself in 2014 was to join Ari Meisel’s Less Doing Bootcamp and Mastermind).

5 – Be willing to face your fears. The biggest block to achieving what we most desire are those pesky fears of our ego…fear of failure, fear of the unknown, fear of looking stupid, fear of what others will think, fear of putting ourselves out there, fear of getting out of our comfort zone, fear of disappointing others, fear of judgement, the list goes on and on. Make this the year you are willing to shine a light on your fears and replace them with LOVE. The ego’s fears cannot exist in the light of LOVE, so follow your heart, f@%# what others think, and start living the life of your dreams. 

Wishing you the most amazing 2015! I look forward to learning and growing with all of you this year! Join me at Happiness U on January 10th for my class “Overwhelmed to Empowered” and check out all the many wonderful classes there to help you live your happiest most awesome life!
