Here is real life proof you can COMPLETELY change your life in less than a year!
Here's my 2015 in a nutshell:
January: Floating anxiously through life, yearning for more freedom, commuting in frigid temperatures and snow with my bike to save on transit (READ: no money!)
February: Finally decided to stop wasting time with shiny object syndrome, and committed to building my blog. Worked my butt off writing content alongside my 9to5 job.
March: Spent a lot of time hiding in the bathroom at work looking at my Pinterest boards with images of travel and freedom. Bank accounts all in negative $. Struggling to get momentum with the blog and wondering if I’ll ever make any money.
April: Huge mindset shift - DECIDED that this would be “my last office job EVER”. Stopped resisting my circumstances and invited money into my life. Got 2 freelance writing positions and blog started to take off.
May: Finally feeling like I’m going from surviving to thriving. Got a promotion and a raise in my 9to5, but even more stoked that I was able to grow my own biz as fast as I please, not on someone else’s schedule! Will and I both committed to leaving our 9to5s at the end of June and going on the road!
June: Online income matched corporate income. Over $16k saved in my travel fund, in less than 3 months. “Liivi has left the building” on June 30th, and never looked back!
July: Packed up our condo and moved into our hilarious 1980s RV. Had a series of going away parties with friends and family. Drove from Toronto through all the provinces to British Columbia. Running my biz from the road was sometimes challenging, since campgrounds often don’t have wifi!
August: Explored from BC down through Montana, Idaho, Wyoming, Utah. So many amazing national parks! The RV is struggling to keep up with the mileage, but we make it happen :)
September: More Utah, Nevada, and Arizona! Working from my laptop on the road and bringing in the dollars so I’m not eating into my savings while we’re traveling. How awesome!
October: Realize that I want to create a bigger movement with my freedom business expertise and help other women do the same. I start working with my success coach and create Hello Shiny Life. USA travels finish up in Arizona, we put the RV in storage in Phoenix and fly to Mexico City.
November: Launch the Goodbye Cubicle, Hello Shiny Life 1:1 coaching program to guide women with creating their own online freedom lifestyle business as a coach, consultant or blogger. Traveling around Mexico, living by the beach in gorgeous Puerto Escondido for a few weeks. Perfect laptop lifestyle!
December: First $10k month! Seriously blew my own mind this year and completely buzzing on the rewards of sharing this magic and possibility with other big dreamers. Hello Shiny Life is set to explode in 2016! Planning travels through Central America for the spring, then back to USA and Canada, then to Asia, then to New Zealand. Bring on an INCREDIBLE year of travel, impact and success!
How was your year in a nutshell? How do you want this coming year to be similar, or different? What's on your vision board for 2016 and 2017? Let me know! I always respond to every email and comment personally. (or, jump in on the conversation and awesome energy in my FB community!)
In 2016 I ran my business from 12 different countries and created a multi-6-figure income! I moved to a beautiful resort town in New Zealand and created a baby with my love (wee one is due July 2017). So it just keeps getting better!
I'm living proof that YOU can be living an ENTIRELY different life just a few months from now. You have to decide - how much longer are you available to be living the way you are now? When is that shift finally going to happen? It's all up to you - you are POWERFUL, WISE and CAPABLE.
If you need some inspiration, I've created a full-on guide specifically about how I keep things moving in my business and exactly what I do every day.
