Are YOU ready to launch?!?

Phew... it’s been an amazingly crazy whirlwind of a week! Fabulous BBQ with friends over the weekend, yoga class with my amazing photographer Maggie Habieda, Lifebook workshop with Patrick Rhein, followed by getting interviewed by the awesome Ian L. Gordon on Monday, Keynote presentation for BFO on Tuesday, Jennifer Beale’s amazing Summer Networking Bash ~ just me and some 1200 other folk! ~ at Atlantis on Wednesday (and I was the one introducing all of the incredible speakers including Bill Walsh, Jason Reid, Christel Wintels and Lisa Kemper), and then last, CERTAINLY not least my ‘Spark Your G.E.N.I.U.S. Launch Party last night!

This week I celebrated the official launch of my new program and brand, ‘Spark your G.E.N.I.U.S.’. (want to learn more? Come join me at the next ‘Spark your G.E.N.I.U.S. Manifesto’ workshop on Aug. 21st! Shameless plug I know!!!)

It’s been a hectic week ~ s you can see from the photos above! ~ and so I am going to keep it short and sweet this week (for your sake and mine! Besides, it’s weekend time and I have a girlfriend coming over for dinner and a sleepover any minute now!!!)

A lot of people have been asking me why and how I came about having a launch party… and what it was really representing.

Why?

Well, besides the new program, it was really about celebrating. Celebrating where I’ve been, how far I’ve come, how much I’ve learned along the way ~ both failures and successes ~ and where I’m going… my vision for the future. And, of course, all of the amazing people in my life who have helped make it all possible.

How?

3 words: Choose. Create. Commit.

CHOOSE. choose to believe. choose to go for it. And choose to dream big, play big, and live big.

CREATE. create a vision, create a plan (definitely an area of opportunity for me! I learned a thing or two this time around about the importance of planning ahead… talk about running around like a crazy chicken until the 11th hour!), create a space for celebration.

COMMIT. Commit to an idea. Commit to an action (however small). Commit to a name, a date in the calendar, a person. Commit to something… and then follow through.

So, what are YOU ready to launch? An idea? A new exercise regime? A new bedtime or wake up time? An event? A business? And it doesn’t have to be a massive, intimidating project, either. Smart SMALL. Start from where you are. AND (no more buts!) start NOW.

There you have it. Short and sweet, as promised.

Happy Friday, everyone! And have a FAB weekend!

    You are launching big Carol!

    I am launching a new virtual business building platform to help soul-centered Entrepreneurs (www.startoutsteps.com), and going big with my coaching school (www.ipeccanada.ca)! Every step we take brings us closer to where we want to go and the impact we want to have in this world.

    And I am definitely launching a new bed time for the kids!!! School is starting which implies a new routine! This is harder then launching something in my business… :0

    TTYS,

    JAC
