2014 is off to an exciting start and I didn’t see any of it coming.
Tomorrow I’m about to say a huge “HELL YES” to joining the Alive Tribe – a creative collective of ambitious entrepreneurs setting out to discover just how far we can push ourselves over the next 6 months.
We’ll evaluate every aspect of our lives, create game plans for growth, ideate for our projects, and connect with each other to learn and offer support throughout the unknown journey that awaits us. Did I mention there are two retreats? One to San Miguel de Allende, Mexico and the other, Tuscany, Italy.
When I got the email invitation from Amber to apply for the Alive Tribe the excitement hit me immediately. Let me set the scene for you:
The other day I read a post my friend Teresa wrote called Building Self-Confidence: You Can’t Fake Cool, You Have To Feel It. It’s a short story about her trying a hip hop dance class for the first time and learning some unexpected lessons. Her takeaways were solid and it’s definitely worth the quick read. I love it for three reasons:
1. She tried something new (it’s crazy how many people stop doing this)
2. It was something outside of her comfort zone, and
3. She grew her confidence from a place of vulnerability
As a dancer, I totally connected with the lessons she talked about and it stirred up a lot of thoughts I’ve had, recently and in the past, so I wanted to whip up this little response. Plus, it’s about time I get writing again.
