Three Weeks From Today And A Giveaway

I am so excited!  {and nervous, too!}

3 weeks from today I am unleashing into the world the online workshop Visioning The Best Year Ever!

It's going to be an AMAZING 5 weeks!

Today I am sharing information and answers to some commonly asked questions.


Why Visioning The Best Year Ever?

2 years ago, the school year kicked my behind.  I was exhausted, frustrated, and heartbroken.  I knew I could not have another year like that.  I spent a lot of time thinking, walking, and crying.

I started to journal.  I started to make little art projects that started to heal me and empower me to never end up in the same spot again.  Then I shared some of that in a PDF document last year.

I used it this year.  I was amazed at the difference in outcome.  {My husband agrees.}  It is so much about being intentional and present.  I want to share the gifts I have received with other teachers and other brave people.  It's a great way to invest in yourself!

How will the workshop be presented?

About a week before the workshop begins I will send you the blissful online location where all lessons will be presented and a list of materials you may want to use on the projects. Each of the 5 weeks from June 28 - July 26,  you will receive access to a video lesson, journaling prompts, and creative projects that you can use in any way you choose.  You will also have an extra wrap up week to access the materials.

I will share how I use each of these and ideas for how you might want to use them.  You might want to download everything to save for later.  You might want to print everything to combine in a folder or binder.  {I will be sharing my "Bliss Binder"}  You get to choose how much you want to do.  There is no right or wrong way to participate.

What support will you be offering?

I will send out a weekly email of encouragement and inspiration.  You have email access to me at any time during the workshop, and I will do my best to respond within a day.  At the midway point, I will offer a Livestream Live Chat event.  You will be able to see me talking, and you can ask questions and make comments in the chat.  I want this to be an AMAZING and INSPIRING experience for you!

I am also offering the Brave Teacher Kick Start Event where you can spend the day with me in my backyard, previewing the lessons and beginning the projects.

What if I'm not a teacher?

I think if this opportunity is tugging at your heart then you should participate!  The main focus is making intentional decisions about how we want life to look and feel as we move forward. There is definitely a component about how we want to be as we work. I use language like classroom and student, but if those don't feel appropriate, workplace and client could be substituted.  I welcome you!

Sign me up!

What if I've never taken an online class or workshop?

You're going to love it!  You can participate any time, day or night.  You can be in your pjs or sweaty workout clothes, and no one knows.  If you're comfortable opening emails, reading blogs, and printing pdfs then you have all the skills you need to fully participate in this online workshop.

How much time will it take--after all, it is summer?

You get to decide this.  You can probably move quickly through everything in about 2 hours a week.  You may get super involved in the writing or creating and double or triple that time.

How much does it cost?

$49 gets you get the lessons and ideas and resources and support and encouragement and inspiration!  What a great investment to make in your personal and professional life.

I know the power of Visioning, and I want to share it with as many people as possible.  I am giving away a few spaces to the workshop.  If you want a chance to Vision The Best Year Ever for FREE, then leave a comment about why you should win this giveaway AND email address at the end of this post!  The lucky winners will be announced on Saturday morning, June 9.


  1. I saw this contest and was wondering if anyone took part in the giveaway. If the giveaway is still available, I am very interested. I will (hopefully) be starting my first year of teaching this fall. While I am so excited to finally have a class of my own, I am also terrified. I think your workshop sounds wonderful and that it could be very helpful to me. I could really benefit from this giveaway because as a recent college graduate, I don't have a way to fund it on my own. I would love to win this giveaway.
