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-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!!!!!!!!

P.S. Are you ready to really begin transforming your life? Let’s talk

Reinvention

5-Bullet Aloha Friday

Happy Aloha Friday! At Best Life Ever, we’re constantly evolving and reinventing ourselves as a business (we just launched a new service, see bullet #1 below!) and it has us thinking a lot about REINVENTION. In fact, Pua and I just recorded a podcast episode all about this (releasing soon). Reinvention isn’t always about big dramatic change, it’s just a willingness to course-correct on your journey to your destination. It’s all about your ability to stay open to other ways to get to where you want to go. It’s about slowing down regularly and asking yourself if your current identity is serving you. Bullshit stories, limiting beliefs, and old ideas can grow on us like barnacles. Take a moment this weekend to look at your ship – do you need to course-correct, any barnacles slowing you down? Consider that life isn’t about finding yourself, it’s about reinventing yourself, again and again and again.

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

  • What I’m SUPER excited about – Our new online course building services! At BLE we’re now joyously helping businesses create online courses and membership sites. Know anyone who has video content they’d like to turn into a course or membership site? Email me!
  • What I read this week and loved – This article from Marc and Angel: “40 Hard Things You Need to Hear”
  • My new favorite place to eatUproll Cafe! #obsessed
  • Video I found helpful this week – Smart Social review of the teen app “tbh” (my daughter wanted to download it, but after watching this my answer was nope)
  • Best FB group ever – http://bit.ly/bletribe

If you’re looking for support as you refresh and reinvent yourself, reach out! I currently have just 1 spot available for one-on-one coaching. My clients are fun, high-performers looking for deep accountability and support to reach their goals! If this is you or someone you know, reach out! 🙂

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!
