If you’ve followed me for long, you know I’m a big fan of Gretchen Rubin. Gretchen is the one that pointed out to me the beauty of July 2 which is Halfway Day. This halfway point in the year is an excellent opportunity to check in with yourself and do a little quarterly planning. And I’ve got a free workbook ready for just that purpose!

The free workbook walks you through the following three review tasks:

  • Assess your foundation — What are your life areas and how are you aligned with your values?
  • Consider the possibilities — What could change in the quarter ahead?
  • Make your plans visible — How will you demonstrate your commitment to the actions and habits you want to change in the next quarter?

I’m in the midst of a lot of transition right now. Moving to a new house, working with several new and amazing clients at Monarch Strategies LLC, AND moving my existing community and courses from Podia to Circle. In fact, the FREE quarterly workbook is the first thing I’m launching on Circle so you can get access to the new community for FREE. Here’s how it works:

  1. Visit https://iwannabemewhenigrowup.circle.so/checkout/iwbm-community-guest
  2. If you want free access, enter coupon code FREE at checkout. Alternatively, you can pay for annual access at $10 a year or monthly access at $2 a month.
  3. Finally, visit the Resources area in the community’s Getting Started space to download the workbook.

I look forward to interacting with you in the community and sharing more of my plans for Q3!
