How I’m Shifting in 2018

Happy weird week in between Christmas and New Years…

I recently shared in one of my favorite groups how much I love for this strange week in our culture. It’s an odd time when you can feel the frantic holiday energy starting to calm down and a reflective mood begins to take over the collective.

People are visioning for the future, but there’s no urgency to do anything just yet. Many begin cleaning up, decluttering, and getting organized for the new year, but no one is ready to move at full speed yet. People are kind of working, kind of dreaming, kind of just wanting to be with loved ones or nap or day drink or whatever…it’s like a parallel universe where there are no rules, no pressure, no sense of time. Just a long lazy Sunday. I love it.

As I do every year around this time, I have been reflecting on how I want to FEEL in 2018. What can I let go of? What can step into? What do I want MORE of? What do I want LESS of? What are the lessons I’ve learned this past year and what are my intentions for the year ahead? Simply put, I’ve been listening to my soul and I’m excited to share a bit about what’s come up for me.

As you may have seen in our Best Life Ever emails and posts, we have some big changes coming up in 2018. We’re shifting our business to be working primarily with entrepreneurs and we feel so aligned and energized! We’re (courageously) letting go of some of our services and offerings to expand in ways that will allow us to serve our BLE community even better.

For entrepreneurs or those that have a business idea brewing, we will be serving primarily through our new online course launching Jan 16th called Broke-ass to BADA$$! This 8 week course is everything we’ve learned in the past 5 years packaged in a powerful program designed to give entrepreneurs the business and life of their dreams. If this is the year you’re ready to build and grow your online business and create more FREEDOM in your life, I invite you to book a breakthrough call with us by January 16th to see if this course is right for you.

The other BIG BEAUTIFUL focus for us in the new year is our Shift to Rise retreat April 26 through April 30 in Hau’ula, Hawai’i. I can’t tell you how epic this is going to be. Working with our team to bring this retreat to life has been one of the most incredible experiences. I encourage and invite you to visit our websitejoin our private Facebook group, and set up a call with us to talk about what you would like to shift in 2018 and to see if this retreat is where you’re meant to be!

As I move into the new year, my heart feels full and complete being able to serve joyously through Broke-ass to BADA$$, our Best Life Ever Tribe on FB, our BLE Podcast and Shift to Rise, which is why I have made the decision to indefinitely take a break from 1:1 coaching, personal newsletters, and my personal blog. One of the themes for me this year has been listening to my intuition and bravely letting go of things I love to make way for things that will bring me even more expansiveness, joy, and alignment than my fearful ego can envision or comprehend. Anyone else?

That being said, I want you to know that I am always here for you to support you in anyway that I can. I am so grateful to each and every one of you on this list. Our conversations and connection mean the world to me.

Please do stay in touch and keep me posted on all the magical things happening in your world. Message me and tell me what your vision is for the new year! I’d love to hear! 🙂

Love and hugs,

Kimi

Kimi’s 5-Bullet Aloha Friday (Last One of 2017!)

Happy December! New month and almost the end of another year. With all the holiday happenings, Best Life Ever business shifts and growth we’ve been focused on, our Shift to Rise retreat, and #allthethings, I have really been feeling the need to get centered.

Listening to this calling, I declared today, “Get Yo’ Shit Together Friday” and did a total brain dump (using Trello of course!) and a deep calendar review.

When I start feeling overwhelmed and my ego starts in with that old limiting belief, “I don’t have enough time”, instead of hustling HARDER like I used to, I now work on SLOWING DOWN. I create white space by clearing my calendar (that meant saying NO to a few things today), turning off notifications, and then I ask myself some simple questions like:

  • What’s REALLY bothering me?
  • What is most urgent/important?
  • How can I make my life easier?
  • How can I get ahead/hook up my future self (HUMFS)?
  • What does my spirit need most right now?
  • How can I create more ease, joy, fun, and FREEDOM in my life?
  • And probably the most important question – What can I say NO to?

Your ego will try to tell you that you don’t have time to slow down, but your spirit will speak to you when you do, and life will become much more clear.

Less hustle, more alignment. 

One of the things I’m cutting back on for the rest of this year is certain forms of tech and communication, which is why this will be my last post until sometime in new year! I’lll be dropping back in once the dust settles after the holidays, but you can always follow me on Instagram, our Best Life Ever Tribe on FB and our BLE IG, etc.

OK, so here we go – our last 5-bullet Aloha Friday round-up of 2017!

5 things I’m loving/excited about:

Have a wonderful holiday season! I encourage you to create some time to slow down and ask yourself some quality questions that will improve your quality of life and bring you some well-deserved peace and joy as we move into 2018! Cheers and GINORMOUS hugs!

5 things I’m loving/excited about:

  • Holidays Made Easy with Trello – You guys know about my love for Trello! I’m super pumped this year to be using Trello to get organized for the holidays. Check out this Holiday Gift Shopping from Trello for inspiration on how to use this cool free tool to get more organized than ever.

  • Best Investment Under $15 – I just recently upgraded my $9.99/month Spotify account to a Spotify Family account. This means that up to 5 people under one roof can have their own premium accounts for one monthly charge of $14.99! My family is so stoked and now we don’t fight over who gets to listen to music or get annoyed by other people’s playlists cluttering things up.
  • What I’m Proud of – I made it to 100 days in Shannon Algeo’s #GratefulUnicorn 100 Day Challenge and I’ve decided to keep going! This group and practice has totally transformed my life. I’m now shooting for 365 days! Come join the fun if you are a magical unicorn looking for a fun, safe, supportive sacred space to make gratitude a part of your everyday life.
  • What I’ve been eating – Beef stew! It’s been cozier weather here in the islands with a little more rain and temperatures cooling just a bit. Perfect weather for grassfed beef stew! I’ve been throwing everything in the crock pot in the morning and coming home to warm, delicious stew and rice! Here’s a recipe I loosely follow (I switch all the ingredients to organic and skip the regular flour).

Have a wonderful weekend!

Ask Yourself This Question to Bring More Mindfulness to Your Time + Energy

Kimi’s 5-Bullet Friday

Happy Aloha Friday! It’s been another full week of stretching, learning new tech tools, growing our business, and coaching clients. With a very full schedule, I’ve been extra mindful to stop and ask myself one of my favorite questions for managing my time + energy: “Is this a good use of my time?” This simple question is a powerful hack for snapping yourself out of Facebook rabbit holes, silly low-level tasks, and those ego-driven moments of trying to figure something out on your own when you could just ask someone who knows (hello, tech support). Give it a try! As you go about your daily tasks, set a timer to periodically ask yourself, “is this a good use of my time?” The answer may be YES, it may be NO, but the real power is not in the answer, but rather the habit you’re creating of bringing mindfulness to how you’re spending your precious time and energy!

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

  • What I’ve been talking a lot about lately – Weekly Planning. This is one of the most impactful habits I have and something we recommend to all of our clients. Weekly planning is so powerful and it’s a great tool not just for individuals, but for partners, teams, and families. Check out our podcast episode about this!
  • What I’ve added to my wellness routine – Awaken.yoga. Online yoga + meditation classes created by my friend Shannon and 2 other awesome yogis. I’m obsessed! Great routines to start your day, to restore mid-day, or to add to your evening routine. Embody your body and tune in to your highest self!
  • Quote I’m pondering – “If we don’t change what isn’t working in our lives, we will continually have the same day over and over again.” – Daily Om
  • Podcast I’m loving  Kwik Brain. I love this podcast from Jim Kwik!!! Bite site brain hacks for busy people who want to learn faster and achieve more. So good!
  • What I’ve been eating – Super easy quinoa chili. I made a version of this with kidney beans instead and just cooked it on the stove. Super simple, delicious, and great for cozy nights and the leftovers are great for lunches. Top it with organic sour cream, avocado, fresh herbs, and tortilla chips! Yum!

Wishing you a wonderful weekend. I currently have just 1 spot available for one-on-one coaching. I’m holding space for the PERFECT client: a fun, high-performer ready for deep accountability and support to reach their goals. Someone ready to master productivity, time + energy management so that they can serve at the highest level. Someone ready to take things to the next level physically, mentally, emotionally, and spiritually in this last quarter of 2017.

If this is you or someone you know, let’s talk!

P.S. Shift to Rise! Early bird rates for our Shift to Rise retreat are open until the end of November & room reservations are first come, first served! If you feel even a little pull to find out more, apply today! Your application is an invitation to a conversation with us. It is neither a commitment to attend nor does it guarantee you a spot at our event. It’s an opportunity for us to get to know you and hear more about your goals, as well as a chance for you to ask us any questions you have about the retreat. We’re so excited!
