5-Bullet Aloha Friday

Happy Aloha Friday! And Happy November! Anyone feeling “busy”? After all, ’tis the season..of busyness. When I work with clients who are feeling “crazy busy” this time of year, one of the first things we look at is whether this is Chronic Busyness or Seasonal Busyness. I wrote a Best Life Ever blog post awhile back about understanding the difference between these two types of busyness because it’s such an important distinction to make. If you’re experiencing a little seasonal busyness as you gear up for the holidays, be easy on yourself and read up on a few strategies that you can use to lighten your load over the next few months 😉

And now for 5 things I’ve been enjoying and pondering:

  • What I’m buzzzzzzing about – BLE Buzz enrollment is open right now through 11/15/17! Life is too damn short to suffer through the week feeling overwhelmed, tired, and unproductive. We designed the Buzz to help people to reclaim their time, energy, relationships, and joy while they continue to CRUSH IT at work and in life. Give yourself the best Christmas gift EVER & join us for weekly live training calls, a membership site full of recordings, exercises, & resources, and unlimited support from me, Pua, and a community of badass buzzers living their Best Life Ever! There is a 7 day free trial, but I have a gift for you! Use the code BUZZFREEMONTH and get a whole month free! See you in the Buzz! bestlifeever.buzz/blebuzz
  • What else I’m excited about – Our Shift to Rise retreat is really coming to life. Check out this FREE training, “How to Get Unstuck”, from our Shift Team! We have another Shift webinar coming up next Thursday on “How to do a life inventory” and we’re announcing $4444 worth of bonuses for this retreat including a special dinner with us Shift leaders and an extra night of stay! Find out more and join our mailing list at www.shifttorise.com by simply clicking to apply (you can choose to apply now or later, but there only 5 bonus packages available through 11/15, so action-takers will be rewarded abundantly!)
  • App I’m loving   Yummly. This app is the best thing ever for meal prep and grocery shopping! Search and save your favorite recipes from the interwebs, search based on ingredients on-hand and dietary preferences, make shopping lists, and even schedule when you want to prepare things!
  • What I’ve been drinking lately – Dirty Chais from Brue Bar. Chai + espresso tastes like gingerbread and feels like productivity!
  • My new favorite nighttime ritual –  Wonderfluff from Acure. I’m obsessed with this affordable, organic, overnight hydrating face mask/cream. Plus I love the quirky language on the tube: “You want some serious winkle fighting, you got it! Yes, we said ‘winkle fighting’. Winkle’s are the magical elves who sneak in at night and try to steal your pretty.”

Wishing you a wonderful weekend!!!!!!!!

STILL the Most Important Thing I Do Every Sunday

img_5944Here it is, Sunday morning…and guess what I’m doing. Yup, the same thing I’ve been doing for years – weekly planning. I was looking back at my old blog posts and found this one called “The Most Important Thing I do Every Sunday” that I posted in June of 2014. It brought tears to my eyes. I couldn’t have imagined that just over 2 years later I’d have the best, most badass business partner in the world and that we would be launching our own Best Life Ever Weekly Planner.

I can tell you this. There would be no Best Life Ever Weekly Planner available for pre-order right now if it wasn’t for 3 things:

1 – Weekly Planning. We were able to create, design, and fine-tune this planner because we’ve been using this system every freakin’ week for years. Not only do Pua and I do this process on our own, we do it as a company every week. Having a printed version of this process has been part of our Big Vision and this system has kept us accountable and working towards this goal every week.

2 – Pua. My number one life and productivity hack is actually not weekly planning – it’s Pua. I struggled for a long time trying to figure out my mission, my message, my online business strategy…something always felt a little funky, like something was missing. It was Pua. When the two of us joined forces, everything became easier, clearer, and most importantly, MORE FUN!

It’s not everyday you find a business partner that shares your vision, your voice, and your values…but also brings to the table different skills, experiences, perspectives, ideas, and energies. The result is that when Pua and I get together we are MORE than either of us would be on our own. One of my favorite podcast episodes is the one we did called How We Work which talks all about our epic partnership and business culture. My friendship and partnership with Pua is one of the things in my life that I am most proud of and most grateful for.

(Side note: Pua and I are so grateful for each other that in the gratitude section of our Best Business Ever Weekly Planning, we changed the wording to read: “We are grateful for EACH OTHER and…” because we found ourselves typing “each other” every week and couldn’t handle the inefficiency of retyping it every time.) 

3 – Action. Having a vision, goals, and planning each week is all fine and good, but it’s nothing without ACTION. There is a reason that one of the prompts in our planner each week says, “I will take BOLD ACTION towards my big vision this week by…” We have a planner, a podcast, blogs, coaching clients, the life and business that we have because we took ACTION.

So there it is, if you want to achieve BIG THINGS – you need weekly planning, support, and action. You got this and I got your back. 

Pre-order your Best Life Ever Planner today and for the support and accountability that will guarantee ACTION in 2017, apply today for one of my coaching programs. I am only accepting applications through December 15th and space is intentionally limited, so THIS is the time to book for the New Year! APPLY NOW

SUPER FUN HOLIDAY SPECIAL: If you book any of my coaching packages through December 15th, I’m throwing in 2 BONUS GIFTS – A special Zoom (video call) New Year’s Big Vision session ($250 value) and a year’s worth (four 13-week books) of our Best Life Ever Planner ($90)!

Success coaching is NOT for everyone. It’s for those that are READY. How do you know? Trust your gut, baby! Those butterflies in your stomach are guiding you towards your purpose, your inspired path, your mission.

Listen to that voice inside telling you that the time is NOW to:

  • Get clear on your mission and message

  • Create more time

  • Reduce stress

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

kimiandpua

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.
