Just a reminder – don’t forget to register for my free LIVE online workshop tomorrow (Wednesday) evening. I’ll be sharing my story with you, sharing the experiences of my clients, and connecting with each of you on your shared struggles as moms…you can register here:
Right now, I’m sitting in my bedroom near Dallas, TX typing away while you’re probably nowhere near here reading this (if you are, let’s get coffee!!).
Believe me, that idea blows my mind on a daily basis.
In the last 20 years our access to others has grown exponentially, both for the good (I get a constant stream of photos/video of my niece who lives three hours away!) and the bad (I’m constantly subjected to other people’s opinions that I never would have been before!).
But one of the downfalls that I’ve noticed until recently is that while we SEEM to be connected in the online world, it’s just no substitute for real face time. There is something so magical that occurs when we can look at each other and fully experience that we’re connecting with another human who understands us and is living a similar life. Facebook groups, emails, and texts are great, but nothing beats looking into someone’s eyes and seeing their expression as they sympathize with what you’re going through at the moment, or hearing the emotion in someone’s voice as they share their story.
Over the past year, I’ve been taking steps to get more face time with the women I want to help, women just like you.
The first thing I did was add online meetings to my 1:1 coaching. Wow, what a game-changer!! Before, the women in my program who checked in with me were just names and situations. It makes me sad that there are hundreds of women that I worked with in the past 5 years that I don’t even know what they looked like! But now, we meet every other week and truly connect, and these clients of mine feel like friends. We laugh together, we cry together, we celebrate breakthroughs face to face. Not only did this improve my coaching dramatically, it improved my quality of life. I LOVE coaching call days!
Last fall, I opened a short-term #FastFitMoms bootcamp for a handful of women, whom I taught healthy habits and mindset to for 8 weeks. During that bootcamp, we had evening online calls where we would all gather, look at each other’s faces, and share our breakthroughs and struggles. Again, this was so magical that the calls went WAY over time. We all enjoyed seeing each other as real moms, some of us juggling our kids during the calls, and not just avatars in a Facebook group.
And then recently I opened up my schedule to a do a select few strategy calls with my social media followers. Although I’ve only had a few calls this week (and one after I write this), each one of them has been more of the same magic – we connected over our common experiences, comforted through tears and frustration, and new friendships have been formed.
God, I love my job.
It was this desire to connect with YOU that I decided to put on a live online workshop to share my own struggles and transformation, to help you feel less alone, and to connect you with other moms who are feeling the way you are.
Overwhelmed, uncomfortable in a body that feels foreign and unrecognizable, and unsure what to do about it in a way that feels good.
I’m going to be teaching you the same tools I teach my 1:1 clients to approach their post-baby transformations with a self-care mindset, and you and others will have the chance to share your own stores and struggles.
And let me be super-vulnerable with you – I’m nervous! As an introvert who hermited behind my computer for years, I always get nervous to make new connections and put myself out there. BUT the biggest lesson I’ve learned in this past year of connection is that the discomfort is WORTH IT. I have not regretted it once and really, I can’t imagine my life now without those connections. It really was the missing piece.
So if you’re feeling disconnected from others and from your body, you can’t miss this free workshop! Join me tomorrow (Wednesday) evening at 8PM EST/ 5 PM PST. All you have to do is register at the link, check your email, click the link just before the workshop starts and it will launch from your desktop, laptop, or phone (you’ll need to download the Zoom app).
But don’t wait – there is only room for 100 ladies and with 18,000 in my community, spots are first-come first-serve.
I cannot wait to connect with you!
