Get Your Mojo Back

Reconnecting with Your Authentic Essence From the Inside-Out

 

Have you ever gotten so caught up in life – climbing the corporate ladder, runnin’ as parent on the go, or following all the trends in fashion magazines that you find yourself disconnected from the essence of who you are? Perhaps you find that life’s unexpected challenges have you out of touch with your true self – living on auto pilot and out of touch. Maybe you’ve been striving to be something that you thought you were supposed to be and now that you’re not working, you’ve lost confidence in who you are and what you’re really about?

If you’ve ever said, “I just don’t know who I am anymore” or “I don’t even feel comfortable or confident in my own skin” you may have lost your MOJO!

Kim Crumpler believes that your MOJO, your magic or secret sauce, is largely reflective of your authentic confidence based on your true essence and is enhanced by aligning your personal truths with your personal statement of style …But, how can you develop this when your authentic self is disconnected somewhere deep inside?

Creating the Life You Desire

“There just aren’t enough hours in the day” … “If only there were two of me” … Have you ever stopped to think how many people would it actually take to live your life? In the case of True Life Coach, Mary Beth King’s clients, the answer was three – THREE people to do all that there was to be done. Can you relate? Continue reading

A Day To Remember – LEXI Women's Leadership Summit

LEXI Sold Out Crowd

Connect ~ Create ~ Innovate

was the theme of the 4th Annual LEXI Women’s Leadership Summit. With a sold out crowd of over 100 of Seattle’s top female leaders in the room and over 370 watching the live stream the energy and vibe was electric from beginning to end.

The Mission

Leaders Engage to eXchange Ideas is what LEXI stands for and the mission is to connect, equip and mentor women in both their personal and professional lives.

We had a new format this year that included a total of 12 dynamic speakers. Each woman was amazing as she offered her wisdom and experience to the other leaders in the room.

I had the honor of kicking off the morning with the challenge for each woman to connect with her purpose and write down one intention she had for the day to take her one step closer to its fulfillment. Next we did an exercise and answered the question, “What would you do if you were not scared?” Great answers fueled more passion.

Our opening keynote speaker was Rebecca Pomering, CEO of  Moss Adams Wealth Advisors and Co-founder of Influence Her. Her wisdom and experience was so inspiring that I had one woman come up to me at the break and said, “If I get nothing else out of today that speech was worth it.”  Here is a snapshot of what she shared.

The Cost of Living Your Passion

I just got confirmation that tomorrow we are streaming our 4th Annual LEXI Women’s Leadership Summit live online.

LEXI stands for Leaders Engage to eXchange Ideas. Our mission is to connect, equip and mentor women in both their professional and personal lives. We have 12 speakers and over 100 women leaders ready to exchange ideas and grow to their next level. The fact that we sold out and able to offer the live stream is amazing to me mainly because of all the obstacles we encountered along the way.

The Cost of Passion

I woke up inspired to share with you about passion and the cost of living a life with purpose. Everyone wants to know their purpose. This becomes more and more clear to me everyday as I work with leaders across the United States. In the last 10 days, I worked with 4 EO chapters. The common theme when you get down to the vulnerable space is purpose, legacy, and passion. What if you don’t know it? What does it take to find it? What does one do to define it?

What I want to discuss is the price tag to live it.

The Cost of Passion

I woke up inspired to share with you about passion and the cost of living a life with purpose. Everyone wants to know their purpose. This becomes more and more clear to me everyday as I work with leaders across the United States. In the last 10 days, I worked with 4 EO chapters. The common theme when you get down to the vulnerable space is purpose, legacy, and passion. What if you don’t know it? What does it take to find it? What does one do to define it?

What I want to discuss is the price tag to live it.

My purpose is to help others live their purpose. It is why I wrote Clarity: Focusing on What Matters and frankly why I write this newsletter. It is why I get up out of bed. It is why I am passionate about offering myself to everyone I can to help them along the path to that authentic truth and abundant life. The joy of connecting with people and then watching them catch glimpses of the light coming on is unbelievable.

However, there is also great pain in the process because you have to get real and peeling those layers back causes people to run and short-cut their journey. Others commit to the process, but the progress can be slow as the proverbial two steps forward, one step back is a reality.

Obstacles Are Not Stop Signs

With LEXI, I hit so many obstacles that I considered canceling it at least a dozen times. For one month, we experienced every imaginable problem there could be, including a location change just 10 days before the event! Obstacle after obstacle had to be overcome and I am so busy with my real job of running my company that it has been 30 days of living on fumes. WHY?

Why not just cancel it? Because I am passionate about it. I believe in it. I feel like I must do it to help people become leaders of purpose. When you believe in something strongly, you can’t see obstacles as stop signs you must believe in the end game. Gratefully, I had a partner in this endeavor, Debra Trappen, who has the same passion and complimentary gifts who was able to step in when I was weak. I couldn’t have made it through those weeks without her.

Who Shares Your Passion?

Living your purpose results in living with passion. What I find is my purpose has not changed but what I am passionate about during a certain season of life does. In this season, who shares your passion? It is truly necessary to have partners that share what you are passionate about to carry you through the tough times.

Here is the truth…

There will always be tough times. Pursuing your passion and what matters most will always come with a cost. There is a price to pay. Because nothing that matters comes easy. Sure it might be simple, but it simply isn’t easy. Overcoming adversity is a requirement. Sometimes we fare better than other times. However, there is no better reward in all the world than knowing you are making a difference in the life of another. What I have found is that the more clarity I have, the more passionate I get. Therefore, the bigger the assignment thus the higher the price. It is how we build character and prepare for the next big thing. 

Saturday is my next big thing!

LEXI is something I would like to do in other cities. I have vision for it to be “TED‘s Girlfriend” if you will. We will have video content available for all leaders and this group of women leaders on Saturday will trail blaze the path. Please join us online at 8:30am PDT sharp and/or join in via the twitter hashtag #LEXI13.  If you want to take the EQ assessment which I will be debriefing at 1:00pm PDT, then email me now and we will get you set up for a discounted fee.

Please live your passion! Please pay the price! It’s worth every penny!

The world needs your leadership – so LET’S DO THIS!

Your Coach, 

International Women's Day is today – LEXI Celebrates 3/23

“Women land 53% of entry-level jobs and make it to “the belly of the pipeline” in large numbers, McKinsey found. But then, female presence falls off a cliff, to 35% at the director level, 24% among senior vice presidents and 19% in the C-suite.” – Courtesy of Moss Adams

It is International Women’s Day and I had the honor of interviewing my friend, Judi Butterworth, who participated in that first march on Fifth Avenue. Together we invite women to celebrate Women’s History Month on March 23rd. One of my passionate causes is women’s leadership. How can women be feminine, strong, purpose-driven, genuine, and wonderfully female in their career of choice? I want women to be able to have great purpose in being a stay-at-home mom as well as great purpose in balancing her family, herself, and her professional life. To have women living their purpose in their specific sphere of influence and, if you will, her calling! That is why LEXI exists.

The 4th Annual LEXI Women’s Leadership Summit is on March 23rd at the Starbucks Corporate Office in downtown Seattle. Our mission is to connect, equip, and mentor women. All women lead in some way in their lives every day; LEXI connects these women, equipping them to examine, engage, and elevate their lives. Here is a great article to learn more.

What is LEXI?

Leaders Engage to eXchange Ideas. The event is not just about the 13 amazing speakers—but it is also about the collective wisdom and insight of the women in the room. This year we have two keynote speakers:

Erica Coogan, a partner at Moss Adams and Co-founder of Influence Her

Jila Javdini, a partner at Slalom Consulting

Both of these leaders have a passion to see women be all they can be at work and achieve the balance we are all looking for. How did they become partners in their respective fields? How can they balance career and the challenge of having young children at home? What is their “why” for passionately giving their time to mentor and grow the women in their HUGE spheres of influence? What are their stories and what are their “whys”?

We have 3 LEXI TALKS – (read about inspirational week at TED last week here)

Debra Trappen, Melissa Benaroya &  Kelly Mitchell will be joining us, are all of whom are amazing entrepreneurs with a wealth of knowledge to share.

7 on 7  - (can’t wait for this!)

7 women sharing for 7 minutes on their story, their passion, their one thing.

Leaders like Melody Biringer, Kim Crumpler, Jackie Jensen, Jenn Donogh, just to name a few!!!

Immediately following, we break into small groups to engage in the exchange of ideas lead by each speaker; each one of us will be part of and capture the brilliance in the room. After lunch, I am going to speak on Emotional Intelligence and debrief the EQ Assessment each woman took before attending ($100 value). The intention of this assessment is to equip women on how to improve decision making, lower stress levels, increase communication effectiveness and manage personal and professional motivation.
