Every day Guild Members are taking concrete micro actions that move them one step closer to reaching their BHAG, and by incorporating my Life Editor system they are doing it at lightning speed. (click here to learn more and join the Guild now!)
Here are a few recent wins that my client have enjoyed over the past two (2) weeks:
- After reconnecting and drawing inspiration from a coffee date with another successful, local millennial entrepreneur:
- Submitted a consulting proposal to Unilever focused on helping them re-think their millennial talent acquisition and talent management strategy.
- Received the nod from another corporate partner on a training contract that will increase her annual income by $15,000.
- Invited to deliver an innovative “career planning” session for incoming freshman at Chattanoogna State Community College
- After reading two (2) highly acclaimed novels for writing inspiration:
- Sent letter to best-selling author and admired thought leader (Chimamanda Ngozi Adichie), inviting her to join her BHAG Editorial Board to serve as a creative advisor.
- Completed the 1st draft of the plot structure for her book.
My guild members are rocking and rolling towards making their big hairy audacious goals come true.
The beauty of their progress is that they are doing it while still maintaining other daily responsibilities like work and taking care of family as well as setting aside purposeful time to reward themselves for a job well done.

For those of you who still aren’t ready to join the Life Editing Guild and want to "try this @ home," I have some insight to share about a powerful system that you can use to get going. There are 4 microSTEPS in my Life Editing “macroSUCCESS” system.
microINSPIRATION + microACTION + microSHARE + microREWARD=
I work with Guild members to ramp up and make the kind of fast and fun progress that I referenced above using this macroSUCCESS cycle. It is simple and designed to virtuously cycle and repeat.
It is my “micro” gift to all of you. In this update, I will explain the first step in this virtuous macroSUCCESS cycle: the concept of the microINSPIRATION.
microINSPIRATION - You have a dream and that's what got you started on your Life Editing journey. How your dream will manifest itself in the end is still anyone's guess. So it helps to sprinkle in ideas from the universe - typically by visiting, perusing, and experiencing the work of others who are doing it and/or have done it.
So once you "dream the impossible dream", go out and find and experience someone who has done it. Whether it is about going to a new gallery opening to check out an exhibit by an up and comer like you, window shopping @ a competitor's store, reading or watching something within your target genre, or just going to hear and learn from others who are experts in the field. There is nothing like a living, breathing example to bring and keep it all in focus.
Just a few weeks ago, I attended a women’s lifestyle summit that two badass sisters who are branding and life coach experts gave in New York. Their movement is called The Great Girlfriends and they host an awesome weekly podcast that is chalk full of helpful advice and tips on how to edit your life!! It was top-notch and gave me some great ideas for upcoming Life Edit Guild events.
More importantly, I saw how within reach that element of my Life Edit vision is. It is all about smart curation, community building, and sponsors. No fear - bring it on! And I'll keep plugging into inspiring experiences like that one to keep my BHAG fresh and actionable.
So the question for you now is what type of inspiration are you plugging into to get your creative and entrepreneurial juices flowing.
If you aren’t sure how to start turning your vision into reality, seek out others who are doing it and soak up as many ideas and connections as you can!
If you want to talk it out, that is what I’m here for. Please send me an email or click here to sign up for a free consultation.
Whether you do it now or later, just remember the energy you expend everyday thinking about or feeling guilty about not making enough progress on your BHAG can be used to experience a microINSPIRATION and begin your macroSUCCESS cycle.
One thing is for sure, you will be hearing from me again soon. Stay tuned for my next update in which I will share the next microSTEP in my macroSUCCESS cycle – the microACTION.
Until soon, ready, set, edit…
