    [ CoUpLeS eDiTiOn ] Entrepreneurship Behind Closed Doors

    This special episode of Literally First Class™ is a couple’s edition with Jake Kauffman as Keri’s guest. Jake is a High-Performance Men's Coach to 7 & 8-figure purpose-driven coaches, entrepreneurs & CEOs. He supports other conscious leaders in expanding themselves personally so that they can exponentially grow professionally. His unique approach to high-performance coaching can best be described as the intersection between personal transformation and business leadership.
    Jake shares what is on his heart, and that is how to focus on achievement and success as a separate part from healing and transformation. Oftentimes, when we are trying to shift behaviors and habits to develop new routines and meet new goals, we don’t put enough focus on the necessary inner work that is going to support those new habits and behaviors, which will ultimately lead to those habits not sticking long term.
    What does that inner work look like? Jake explains that we need to shift our foundation of belief by getting to the root of why we do what we do. We may use addictions to cover up anxiety or pain, but for high achievers, those addictions may look like noble acts such as overworking and constantly being “on”, which doesn’t allow our nervous system to regulate. Our culture has normalized stress and hustle to the point where we don’t even realize that there is something we are avoiding when we bury ourselves in things to do. This is why learning to slow down and get quiet with ourselves is so important and critical for our wellbeing. Tune in for more!

    Quantum Leaps in Somatic Success™

    Quantum Leaps in Somatic Success™

    Quantum leaps can happen very quickly when you do the work to get to know your nervous system, address your limiting beliefs, and understand how you respond to situations. High-performance anxiety might get you really far and help you reach big goals, but it will only get you to a certain point, and you will eventually realize it is no longer sustainable to operate this way. Operating out of achiever or high-performance anxiety will lead you to have difficulty in discerning the messages your body is giving you, which will hold you back from reaching massive magical goals that you are so capable and worthy of achieving.
    With so many of Keri’s clients reaching truly amazing milestones both personally and professionally, Keri often gets asked how they are able to achieve these windfalls of success. The answer lies in doing the somatic work necessary to break through upper-level limits and limiting beliefs that would otherwise keep us in our perceived safe place and in our window of tolerance. 
    Getting in touch with our nervous system is crucial because it has one job that it knows how to do very well, and that is to keep us safe. The problem is, it can't tell the difference between real or perceived threats, so they all feel the same in our body. This means our body will react the same way it would to being chased by a tiger as it would to getting on stage in front of hundreds of people. If we haven’t shifted our window of tolerance and shifted our identity to a woman that has what it is we want, we will continue to self-sabotage without even realizing it. By doing nervous system work and somatic work, you can have whatever it is success looks like to you, and Keri wants that for you.

    How to Disrupt a Basic Bitch Day

    How to Disrupt a Basic Bitch Day

    When you have lost sight of your vision and are caught up in the daily grind, the best way to get out of that rut is to look at your daily patterns and offer a pattern interrupt. When it comes to disrupting a “basic bitch” day, Keri has 5 amazingly simple, yet really powerful ways you can interrupt a pattern and turn a not-so-great or just basic day, into an amazing one. During this time of year, most people are not struggling with inspiration or setting goals, but soon we will start to enter the period when we might lose momentum and disconnect from our end goal. The end of the year comes around and we realize we have come so far from what we intended to meet at the beginning of the year. Keri wants more for you, so she offers 5 ways to redirect your energy when you start to fall into a slump.
    The work of undoing patterns is just as much about becoming as it is unbecoming. We have to lose the identity that we have latched onto and isn’t aligned with who we are, which allows us to become who we are meant to be. We are stripping away the crap that we have added on or been handed over the years that is not serving us. Helping women overcome their current circumstances or perceived upper-level limit is a passion of Keri’s, and everything she teaches, she also lives and embodies. 
    This episode is packed with simple yet effective pattern interrupts you can incorporate into your daily routine to spice things up and make things light and fun when things start to drag. Tune in to hear 5 ways to disrupt any basic bitch day. You can shake things up in a big and even more powerful way by attending Keri’s next UNMADE retreat to get yourself out of your regular environment and into an elevated one.

    Living Your Best Life

    Living Your Best Life

    As we are all downregulating from the holidays, Keri is looking to the year ahead and sharing her vision with you. One thing she has come to realize is that money does not change us, it just amplifies who we are. As we are able to acquire more money, it should positively magnify who we are and what is important to us. With this in mind, Keri shares that her goal this year is to re-elevate her relationship with money, and invites you to do the same. As you're anchoring into your 8-figure self, think about she spends money, values money, where she spends money, and what does her life feel like?
    With this new year and new cycle just beginning, let’s visit the idea of renewing. We don’t do the whole “new year new me” BS around here, but the idea of a clean slate and the opportunity to rebuild, rejuvenate, and renew feels wonderful and exciting. 
    Whether you are looking for guidance, mentorship, a place to find your tribe, or all of the above, Keri has a program for you. She shares about the different and exciting programs you can join to elevate your leadership skills, and your mindset, and join women that will become lifelong friends. Keri wants you to be refreshed and excited for the year ahead and she can't wait to step into the new year with you. Stay connected and let us know what First-Class moves you’re making.

    Didn't Go As Planned

    Didn't Go As Planned

    By reflecting on this year and preparing for the next, Keri acknowledges that several things did not go as planned in 2022. For starters, her partner experienced a traumatic brain injury that shook up their world. There was so much that came along with that, and Keri was not prepared, but everything comes with a learning opportunity. Along with that scary and unpredictable experience, Keri went through a painful partnership breakup that came with a lot of learning and growing but eventually was for the best. Add on a child’s birthday party gone wrong, and completely shifting her coaching from intuitive eating to leadership, and this year definitely did not go as planned.
    Planning and goal setting are essential, but it is also important to know that sometimes things don’t work out as we imagined. Being adaptable and taking each experience as a learning experience is part of being a 1% woman. So much in Keri’s life has been rearranged this year, and the learning experience has been challenging, yet invited her to higher levels of leadership of herself and taught her what she wants to create in the world. We don’t subscribe to the “New Year New Me” BS around here, but the idea of cycles ending and new ones beginning is exciting and an opportunity for reflection and reset. Let’s step into 2023 making first-class moves together.

    Hot Girl Healing Vibes for 2023

    Hot Girl Healing Vibes for 2023

    As we approach 2023, Keri wants you to be able to enter this new year as the 1% woman. This means showing up in the new year as the healed and highest version of yourself. Have you ever felt someone walk into the room and their energy introduces them? Keri wants that for you. To be able to exude energy of confidence, peace, poise, and a sense of being grounded. Sounds amazing, right? But how do you get to that place? It starts with the awareness of how you are operating right now.
    So many of us high achievers are operating from an “anxious achiever archetype.” Operating from this place has served us in the way that it has gotten us to where we are now and helped us achieve great things and goals that we set out, but do you ever feel like you are stuck in a cycle or hitting the same wall over and over but can’t seem to get away from it? Keri explains that this is our nervous system doing its job by keeping us safe and operating as if we are in danger, even if we aren’t. By viewing our nervous system with a sense of love and understanding, we can acknowledge that it has done its job, but it’s not serving our highest self, so we need to create new ways that help us reach our potential.
    Keri’s hot girl healing vibes for 2023 stem from her word for the year: Resilience. Choosing a word instead of a bunch of resolutions helps you to be more intentional as you think about what you want to feel and embody this next year. Keri’s questions for you are: “What are you tired of pretending you don't want?” “Where are you playing small in your life, and how do you really want to lead?” “What do you want people to say when they feel you and experience you as a woman in the world?” Imagine what is possible when you break through the limiting beliefs you are telling yourself. Imagine what is possible if you go “all in”. Join Keri in this episode as we move into 2023 as the 1% woman, the highest expression of ourselves, the “all out” version that doesn’t care what others think, and is committed to reaching Somatic Success. Keri wants to know, what is your word for 2023?
