July 29, 2021 - Mid-year Power Pause: There is SO much you could do the rest of the year, so much and so many you could give to, but what really matters to you? One of the smartest things we can do at the mid-year point is to pause, reflect, realign and redesign what we are going to focus our life force, resources and time on. This is what we call taking a Power Pause, and we are excited to come together as a full 2021 cohort to discuss. It’s how we make sure we create realities that are both successful in what we desire to create and cause AND that are sustainable.  It’s also a best practice for getting out of overwhelm and the feelings that you are never doing enough or have enough.
