We are BLESSED.
That just about sums it up!
You see this last weekend I did something I envisioned a year ago but wasn’t certain it would become a reality…at least not so soon!
Now I have to share that this would not have been possible without the incredible support of my husband
He was a key player as I hosted my first ever DIAMOND Retreat in Deep Creek MD with one of my closest friends and what I like to think of as my Business Partner in crime!
You see…Sarah and I attended a leadership retreat last year hosted by our upline sponsor coach and we decided that this year we would do the same…with OUR leaders WE would help shape as we built our teams, our legacy, our TRIBEs throughout the last year.
Sarah and I are Success Partners.
We are each other’s biggest fans, shoulder to lean on, supporter and FRIEND. We get each other, build on one another’s strength’s and compliment each other’s weaknesses in a way that allows us to become better Coaches and better LEADERS.
Being able to work together to host this weekend and to get these girls together was literally a DREAM COME TRUE!
The only thing that would have made it better was if all our Diamond Coaches could attend!
Our Friday morning kicked off with a car loaded with gifts, food, craft supplies and perhaps some beverages!
We planned this weekend to not only recognize our leaders but help them grow, answer their questions, give them advice, help them with their vision and have some fun and celebrate all our team accomplishments!!!
The girls all walked in to a table covered with personalized posters and a few gifts of course!!! Gift giving has become my love language in this business. These ladies work H-A-R-D and being able to shower them with meaningful, purposeful gifts fills my heart, or my cup shall I say!
Friday night included a training while we piled high on the couches, ears wide open ready to absorb, take notes, and apply these things to our business.
We had fun asking questions, allowing the girls to all get to know each other and all sharing a bit more about ourselves and WHY we all not just took this LEAP into coaching but continue to work hard each and every day to grow our businesses and serve others!
There were happy tears, some sad tears and a heck of a lot of bonding!
Our Saturday was JAM PACKED…starting with few minutes for ME!
I know it may sound crazy but I need these 10-15 minutes of positivity in the mornings to get into that mindset.
We enjoyed a COUNTRY HEAT LIVE workout led by one of our coaches…
Followed by a Lifestyle photo shoot by Ali from Vivid Photography.
From the girl who never wears make up and didn’t even OWN a curling iron to last year I will admit…getting all done up and feeling like a princess is one heck of a confidence boost!
When the glam was over we switched gears and headed off to the Lake to RELAX. I honestly feel that the best aspect was NO WIFI!!
Unplugged, laughing, chatting, being adventurous and simply being together was so rejuvenating!
We enjoyed all our meals at the house, prepared with good company, keeping it clean where we could
and splurging where anyone would…ICE CREAM BAR!
The last “activity” included crafting up vision boards together.
Each girl brought their own board, ideas and together we talked about what we wanted, what we needed, what our path looked like and how big our dreams could be dreamt!
Did you know when you write out your goals it will force you to clarify what you want because it will motivate you to take action?
It will provide a filter for other opportunities and it will help you overcome resistance because it will enable you to see—and celebrate—your progress.
If I can give you one bit of advice: its don’t just sit with your goals in your head.
Write them down.
Share them with others.
And celebrate every step along the way!
Our night ended, we woke up Sunday morning, said our goodbye’s and all headed home.
BLESSED to have this weekend.
I often share that this life I now have is nothing that I ever imagined my life would look like.
I thought I was going to be this successful business woman working in a tall city sky scraper in NYC making the big bucks
But now that I look back, I realize that I still have that career I envisioned…I just work from a home office in the Pittsburgh suburbs…
