There’s something about heading towards the end of a year that I find… completely scintillating! Yes, that’s definitely the word. I’m not sure if it’s the fact that when you add together Christmas AND New Year and combine all the related pre- post- and "somewhere in the middle" fun and festivities that the result is something really rather special, or whether it’s as simple as getting just completely wired-up with child-like trepidation at what the next year will bring. But what I can tell you is that I am so excited I am almost beside myself!
Well, next year I am taking my big leap, also known as my big “gulp” – at least this is what it has been formerly referred to earlier in the year in some blog postings when I didn’t give the details away! From 1st January 2007 my life is changing – a lot. I am going to be working on The Raw Food Coach business full time, which means speaking, writing and teaching all over the place (!) with just a tiny bit of Fresh Network remaining in the mix, because the time has come for me to stop holding myself back and just fly.
Now, some of you reading may be thinking "but aren't you already doing that?" and in part you would be right, I have been doing a lot with TRFC, especially since February when I first started working on my web site, but at the moment my life is split 50/50 between the two and consequently I’ve been very office bound and also a lot of juggling has been going on. Perhaps surprisingly juggling the two hasn't actually been the problem; longing to do more of what I truly love has! So next year it’s all change and with every passing week you will see new information, recipes, support systems, cool new publications and some even more exciting stuff coming through in all different shapes, sizes, packages and guises – and that will be on here, on my web site and also via my weekly eZine - Successfully Raw - which is lots of fun to create, is (apparently) loved by many, and all things considered is really going from strength to strength. (If you have already signed up, look out for more great free stuff coming through in the eZine in the next couple of weeks).
So, does this mean I am leaving The Fresh Network? No, not at all, but things are changing. The world of raw food is changing. And TFN has always been at the forefront of the change in raw food in the UK, if not Europe, and the time has definitely come to morph a little for so many good reasons. So you’ll be seeing some changes both here and there – but it’s all good. And there’ll be lots of crossovers when it’s appropriate... But more about TFN another time!
As for this work - The Raw Food Coach work - well, with every passing day it becomes increasingly clear that writing, teaching and coaching is absolutely what I do best. It’s where I deliver most value and it’s what I get the most buzz out of. It's like wearing the outfit I'm supposed to be wearing - but not just for dressing up time only - for every day! And next year is already mapped out events-wise here in England plus I have two very different US speaking gigs in the pipeline (very exciting, I am pining for the USA big time as I haven't been for about 6 years), and I also have some other really exciting projects still up my sleeve (although some of them are now starting to peek below my cuff - the 30 Days to Raw Program launching in January is going to be fabulous and people are now signing up). When each new resource is ready of course I’ll announce them, but until then I have to quietly beaver away in the background trying to keep it all to myself, so please stay tuned!
Yes, it’s finally become crystal clear what my role is in this world, and though I always hoped it would be along these lines (the personal and small group stuff + masses of writing) there was always that small part doubting. It's a human thing. None of us escapes it! But sometimes life just shows you good and proper that your deepest dreamiest desires really are the ones that you’re supposed to go after and are meant to make come true! (Are you feeling any twangs in your own heart as you read this?)
So with this in mind, very clearly in the lead up to Christmas and New Year now, there’ll be some celebrating going on here via various articles, recipes and inspirational bits and pieces, and maybe even a giveaway or two. I really want you to feel as if you’re a part of something really exciting that’s going on, because it’s true. Really, although on the surface it appears as if I am talking about my own evolution, this is really all about you - if you want it to be. I am freeing myself up to be more of service, because that's what I'm here for. And one of the people I am here to serve, again, if you want it to be, is YOU!
For those who want to GO FOR IT!
If you personally are going through “a time of it” right now – whether it be a tough time, an unsure time or an exciting one, and you genuinely feel ready to take action and move into a more exhilarating and brave new world, then I feel confident that if you're open to coaching, between us we can absolutely make 2007 your best year yet.
In real terms, this means that if you’d like some pre-festivities coaching, whether that be a one-off goal setting session or something a bit more food-orientated and possibly ongoing, now would be the time to book it... Because, as ironic as it sounds, in 2007 I will be coaching on a 1-2-1 basis much less than ever before and I'll be limiting my clients to just a handful every month.
So, the special offer I have for this Christmas is as follows:
If you’re ready to go for it in 2007 and sign up for at least 2x 45 minute coaching sessions* (cost £120) you’ll not only leave our sessions completely clued up on where you're going next year and what actions you'll need to be taking, you'll also be the lucky recipient of a copy of all three of my eBooks PLUS a "5 Stages of Raw Transformation" transcript/audio package (launching next week) as a special Christmas present to help kick-start your 2007 in style. The combined value of these goodies is just over £34 (approx. $65 US), making this a truly fabulous deal if ever there was one - not least because the resources themselves really are worth so much more than the price that they retail for and they really will make all the difference to your body AND your life. And yes, you can just book one session, and we will get a lot covered, but the goodies won't be part of it!
So, if this sounds like something you can use, and you really are up for some big changes, then call me or email me right away. I'll be working 1-2-1 with no more than 8 people as far as this offer is concerned, so hurry and hurry soon!
