If your vision for success is built around things you achieve so you can have, you’re not alone! 

Thank you, societal expectations.

But what if you flip the script?

What if your vision for success is built around the way you exist so you can feel?

Why?

Because human psychology shows us the joy and exhilaration that come from achieving “the thing” are fleeting. It happens to all of us.

Unless.  Unless! 

Success is in the journey.

I’m a small-town girl (sing it, Journey!) from Fergus Falls (population 13,000), Minnesota.

For as long as I can remember, people have asked me what I want to be when I grow up.

When I was five years old, I decided I was going to be a superhero. Wonder Woman, to be clear. [Fun backstory I hope to share with you someday!]

By the time I hit eighth grade, I realized being a superhero was quite aspirational. So, I shifted my attention to being a television broadcast journalist. Specifically, I decided I would be Katie Couric’s successor on NBC’s Today. [Far more reasonable, right?! I know.]

In college I chased that dream right into the NBC green room to interview Katie Couric herself. Yes, you read that correctly. I interviewed Katie Couric. In the NBC green room. In New York City. [Huge backstory!]

As college graduation drew near, significant life choices weighed heavy on my heart—choices that would be influenced by (what had been portrayed to me as) the ultimate decision about what I wanted to be.

Hold up. Wait a minute. [Yes, FFHS Cheer Team!] Ultimate decision? That's huge. So...

Before I was old enough to take my first legal drink, I began researching stories, experiences, and practices that help women identify and get after what makes them whole.

Fast forward to today.

I’ve been empowering women to live their true selves for more than 20 years as an executive, mentor, educator, and public speaker.

In 2019 women in my personal, social, and professional spaces found themselves on a bit of a treadmill, running so hard and so fast they lost sight of what they were chasing.

In 2020 a global pandemic put a hard-stop to those treadmills. Women found themselves surrounded by space and time that was remarkably unfamiliar; a bit scary, and a bit freeing.

Today the world is opening again. And those same women who just started to find their sea legs on the sands of possibility are asking themselves who they want to be, where they want to go on this crazy trip called life, and how on Earth they’re going to get there.

It lights my soul on fire to connect with these women—women just like you—to explore what it looks like to have the courage to try “the thing” [whatever that is], confidence you can, and compassion for who you are in this moment, which is precisely where you are meant to be.

Set down your goal-getter mug for a second.

The coffee's getting cold, anyway!

 
 Look at how Webster’s defines goals:

 

 

 

Louder for the people in the back. Something YOU are trying to do or achieve. Not your parents, your spouse, or your friend from high school who is #blessed.

You have the opportunity - and, dare I say, the obligation - to choose in this life.

“But Stephanie,” you’ll say. “I don’t even know who I am right now. Let alone what I want.”

I hear you. I was you. Striving without knowing for sure what I was striving for. Petrified I wouldn’t be satisfied when I achieved it. And at a total loss for how to fix it.

Listen, life is a crazy trip. But we get to choose who we are, where we’re going, and how we’re going to get there. I don’t claim to know the answers to your life’s questions. I can’t possibly, because I haven’t traveled your journey. But I can tell you my story, and the stories of other women. I can ask you the tough questions, and walk with you as you do the deep introspective work that will equip, enable, and empower you on a life changing journey of self-discovery.

What are the voices in your head telling you?
How true is what they’re saying?
What if you flipped the script?
What do you seek most in this life?
No idea?
Let’s find out.
One step at a time, that’s how.
Let’s map the journey to help you be intentional on the course.

THE JOURNEY IS YOURS. HOW CAN I HELP YOU GET STARTED?

Finding (and staying true to) who you are at the core of your being is hard work.
But, oh, so worth it.
If this resonates with you, let’s share the journey.
I’m not a doctor. I don’t have a fancy degree. I don’t claim to have your life’s answers for you. I can’t because I haven’t traveled your journey.
But I am real, just like you. And I have helped women live their best selves for more than 20 years.
I can share my story, ask you the tough questions, and walk with you as you do the introspective work that will equip, enable, and empower you on a life-changing journey of self-discovery.

We are all striving for something. Let's make sure our goals are true to who we are as individuals and our journeys to reach them are fulfilling.

If I was a betting woman, I’d guess your to-do list is longer than an Amazon receipt and looks something like this:

 

Get the homeroom mom gold star. I swear those store-bought cookies I brought to the last picnic had the other moms whispering.

Fit into that dress. I know I bought it *on sale* two seasons ago, but…

Get one picture of everyone smiling. Just one. That’s all I ask.

Get that promotion. Just a few more late nights and perfectly executed projects.

Book a Girls’ Trip. Well, maybe next year. Because, you know, #momguilt.

 

How about you set that to-do list aside for a minute?

What if you created a to-be list instead?
