    Episode Highlights
    Don't allow fear to prevent you from going after what you want.You can't be your barrier to reaching the things you want to get. There will be plenty of external barriers that get in your way, but don't let yourself get in your own way of doing the things you want. Be okay with letting business go that isn't for you. Embrace what's for you and don't be stressed about what's not.The great reshuffling was a once and a lifetime moment to switch up how and in most cases where you work.Gig work and contract work can be seen as an up-and-coming trend in the industry.Diverse income streams are seemingly an aspiring trend too for many post-pandemic. We have to do better with taking care of our physical bodies, our sleep, our eating, and our exercise.You have to protect your boundaries and stand up for yourself. When you do this, you can reduce your stress.Moments and planning events can be so powerful if we just take the time to pay attention.Pay attention to the present moment when planning, and ask yourself a key question: What do we want our attendees to feel or know when they walk away from our event?Links and Resources:

    How to Stay Focused on Your Goals

    How to Stay Focused on Your Goals

    Have you ever struggled to meet the goals that you've set? In this episode, I will share six strategies that I've used to stay focused on my goals. Hopefully, these strategies will help you succeed in all that you are looking to accomplish for this year.

    Episode Highlights
    I've had opportunities in my lifetime to take on big projects,  and lead teams, and although the journey seemed overwhelming at first, the strategies have always helped me to succeed.

    Find your Drive
    I talked about the importance of finding what drives you so that you have the fuel that you need in order to accomplish your goals.
    Seek Out Accountability
    Accountability is something I frequently discuss. It is very important for you to have a measure of accountability with someone in your life checking in and making sure that you are staying true to what you said out to do.
    Write it Out
    It's always helpful to write down your goals. I find that when I write things down it opens up additional opportunities to get detailed how my goals will be met.
    Measure It with Deadlines/Milestones
    Taking account of the deadlines and milestones that you will meet as you complete your goals is key to staying on point throughout the year.
    Do Goal Sprints
    Sometimes you can find quick and easy tasks to complete to give you a little bit of a Headstart towards your goal. I called these goal sprints. Identify where they are and go for it!
    Midpoint checks (July/Aug)
    I'm sure you had many goals that you were tracking towards. Setting aside some time to reflect on how you've done and where are you still have yet to go is very helpful for you to do in the middle of the year. Set some time in your calendar to do a midpoint check.

    3 Keys to Building Amazing Teams

    3 Keys to Building Amazing Teams

    There are many shifts that are happening as we are phasing into another era of the pandemic. We have lost team members, gained others, and face the challenge of building amazing teams we had once before.

    Episode Highlights
    Many people are exhausted from all the hard work in this season, yet many are excited to get back to work. We are currently planning events differently, there isn’t an event that is absolutely similar to what it was pre-pandemic.Listening to your team and being attentive to their personal needs is very crucial at a time where people are sensitive to global events. When you are learning and taking risks at the same time, so encouraging vulnerability can allow teams to make mistakes gracefully.The difference between a successful team and a team that isn’t as successful is that they use crisis as a way to crystalize their purpose. Thank you for listening to the podcast. Rebuilding those amazing teams is so important as we grow our organizations again. Join me for our next book club on September 8th as we discuss The Culture Code by Daniel Coyle, and chat about the secrets of highly successful groups. Sign up at www.plannersonpurpose.com/bookclub.
