setting your “one word” intention for 2016

By | awards and key achievement s, life hacks | One Comment

2015…holy smokes, WHAT A YEAR.

Can we just take a moment and reflect back on all that’s happened?  The good, the bad and the ugly (insert Trump joke here)…just think, all of it, every single choice you made, led you right here, reading this blog, slowly transforming you and your team into undercover superheroes like The Simplifiers.

Well done, you.

Take a moment and give yourself a fist bump.

It’s okay, no one is looking.  Just stand up, wherever you are now and give your left hand a fist bump from the right, imagining it’s me coming thru your laptop and congratulating you for all that you’ve accomplished this year.



When I look back at the year I’ve had and actually wrote down my key achievements on paper, I’m taken aback.  Whoa…when did I do all of THAT?

“When we slow down and appreciate where we are in the NOW, we gain the most clarity for where we are headed in the future.”

And I’m filled with utter gratitude.

I’m so grateful for each of you guys who support us, cheer us on and those that have already tapped into our mentor network and online training tools.  Thank you, seriously…thank you!


As we move into 2016, I encourage you to set your “one word” intention for the year.

It’s simple….just pick one word that will be your driving force in everything you do in business, as a mentor, as an event planner and in your personal life, as well. Read More

how to decide what you (really) want in 2016

By | life hacks | No Comments

The question I hate the most is:

“what do you want?”

Seems like a straightforward question right?


The answers seem simple:

“I want to be happy”, “I want to be healthy” or “I want my business to succeed.”

But what in the world do those answers actually mean?!

What does being happy really look like? Does it mean having the perfect relationship? A good work and life balance? Great hair? A pair of Louboutins on your feet? All of those things raise even more questions.

What does success look like to you? Do you know specifically what you want? And are you sure you really want it?

will you join us on our Kickstarter journey?

So, we’re running a Kickstarter in 2016…why?

We are on a mission to stop horrible internships.


We’ve all been there before…nervous, ill-prepared and your new boss has just thrown you to the wolves without any sort of training.

Or maybe you’ve been on the other side of the table…not sure if you’ve hired the right person, are they going to be an asset or slow you down? You’re moving ninety miles an hour and what in the world are you going to train them on?

This is a recipe for disaster and it’s happening in offices all over the world right now.

We want to put a stop to that.

So that’s why we built The Apprentice Program… Read More
