Life transitions…

Such a polite way to describe what are really the dark nights of the soul, those dark, difficult turning points in life. Just when you think you have it all figured out…

WHAM! Life turns you upside down and shakes you.

I know that many of you are going through your own exploding version of a life transition, right now. In fact, in reviewing all your questions for this summer series, so many of you asked about what to do during these complex times of revolutionary and evolutionary change.

Really, what to do when the proverbial s&*t hits the fan??

We don’t always realize that we actually design our s&*t-hitting experiences, do we?  We feel undone and done to, and I have to say, I have felt like the biggest loser on the victim bus so many times in my life, ’til the Womanly Arts brought me to my senses.

Let me introduce our gorgeous and fabulous panelists for this week: Rebecca, Sade, and Elan. In the video below, they are generous enough to share their own experiences during life transition. Then below they answer your direct questions for applying the Womanly Arts.

Now that you know our ladies, let’s see how they have addressed some of your direct questions!

We have to do that—again?
But I just re-created myself!
I thought I dealt myself a brand new set of cards, after taking untold risks and doing a gut reno on my life.
Why again??
(Big exhale.)
It’s all about desires, sisters.
As women, we are the holders, the bearers, the inhabitors of so many magnificent desires.
Desires that break us and remake us.
Shake us and stir us.
Wake us in the middle of the night.

We are always being called forward by new desires—whether it’s the desire to become a mom, change careers, start a business or re-enter the dating scene. Sometimes we’re forced to re-invent. Perhaps your relationship just ended, you’ve been laid off from your job, or having to revamp your diet after a health scare.

Often the aching urge to change is as uncomfortable as the dazzling fear of change. continue reading…

Do you ever get overwhelmed with too many passions and business ideas? Ever wonder what you should be doing first, second, third, and so on? Me too. That’s good news, though, because I recently had the chance to chat with my pal and Mastery Program speaker Marie Forleo on this very topic.

If you don’t know Marie, you should. She’s just been interviewed by Oprah as a thought-leader for the next generation, and she’s built an incredible virtual company that allows her to travel, make a big impact, and give back to causes she believes in. She’s helped thousands of women, including myself, take their business to the next level with her latest course, B-School. And I want you to benefit from her talents right here, right now, with this video interview…

Marie and I have been friends for a few years now—she brings the Mastery house down every year, and we always have a blast when we get together. Watch the interview below where we discuss how to discover your true passions, why every woman is a marketer, and what you can learn from American Idol.
