You got me. Looks like I “accidentally” left on my Winnie The Pooh pajama bottoms. Opps!
Embarrasing? Just a little. Liberating? Gosh yeah! You should try it sometime. Freedom is jamming in your jammies.
Speaking of jams, do you ever feel like your one-on-one offers are taking over your entire freaking life? Disco-balling with the client is super-docious, but the logistic… MAN! Pass me the punching bag will ya’? And while you’re at it the bad carbohydrates too, please.
So what’s my secret to booking new clients without going coo coo for Cocoa Puffs + selling out all my coaching spots for 2013 + it’s not even June yet? The answer + step by step guide + printable: Inside. Ten points for Gryffindor!
How to you streamline your one-on-one services? Any systems you care to share? Apps you fancy? I want to hear from you in the comments.
grab + share
Don’t forget to take your brand new Coaching Tracker with you… it’s FREE, though sharing in exchange for downloading would be ridiculously appreciated + rewarded by the karma fairies. I hear.
Hella resolution troopers in da house! Who cares it’s not January, right?
We’re always on the freaking go. Bom bom bom. Show us the arrow that points to the summit. We’re there. In a heart beat. I love that about you. Have I ever told you that?
So hey, you. Over achiever. Yeah, I know that your middle name. We wear it proudly. Today I’ve got a little kick-in-the-tutu printable for ya’. Yes, hand-illustrated by my 10 little fingers + designed to help you break down your intergalactic dreams into manageable chunks you can actually check-off.
Years of climbing + dancing with or without a tutu have thought me that nothings works better than checklists to move from the “look there’s a squirrel stage” to “action bad-ass gear”.
With checklists you can stay focused + set priorities + forget nothing + turbo charge your productivity. I’m a huge fan. Can you tell? But there’s an art to list making. Like Kung Fu, but not exactly.
Long checklists can never be finished. Period.
Short lists, on the flip side, are realistic + give you superpowers + make you feel amazeballs. There’s an enormous psychological boost in getting stuff done + cruising thought your to-do items, specially when you mark off the things that matter most to you + make the most difference.
So, what on your short checklist Pinky?
When I was little, my grandma used to tell us that if we went out swimming on Good Friday we would turn into mermaids. Just in case, I’ve always taken it easy these days leading to Easter. Wouldn’t want to accidentally turn into, I dunno, a video camera maybe.
But all silliness aside, this seasonal pause has me feeling a bit sentimental. And then mix that up with a pinch of PMS + you have yourself a recipe for La Vita è Bella-type sobbing. Hubby is a saint.
This may or may not make coherent sense.
In June of 2010 (holy smokes!) I began this online roller coaster ride as a way to spill open my hopes + fears + passions + epiphanies + worries + questions + all the beautiful mess in-between. I confess I’ve never really followed any treasure maps, instead I’ve relied on the purest life force I know, my inner compass, to propel me forward + pave the way.
With my gut as captain, I’ve sailed this ship away from the safe harbor, still amazed it’s managed to stay wreck-free. Bruised, yes, but never wrecked. Knock on wood.
Sounds epic? Should I write an auto-biography? Want my autograph? Should I change my name to Magic Carles? Nah! The truth is, I’ve spared myself + everyone who’s come along for the adventure an Armageddon only because I have granny as lighthouse + mom as life vest + hubby as fuel + the whole fam’ providing free claps, plus hors d’ouvres.
Bring it on turbulent waters, I don’t even need the infamous vomit bag. I have my peeps. Pow!
If Oprah calls though, I will need a lot of seats.
It’s one thing to dream, “Oh, wouldn’t it be so cool if…”. It’s another to see God + the Universe + Lucky Charms, heck call it whatever you want, manifest your wildest wishes right before your eyes. Faith is all you need.
I’ve never shared my spiritual beliefs out in the open before for too many reasons. I’ve purposely edited details like that:
- I went to an all girls Catholic school.
- I have big issues with institutionalized religion.
- I love our new Pope Francisco because he makes me smile + gives me hope.
- I believe human design is influenced by the stars.
- I mostly pray on airplanes, specially when I think it’s going to crash.
- I will love my husband for every lifetime.
- I sense there are hairy hands underneath my bed that only come out at night.
- I think we reincarnate as lizards + barracudas or rocks when we are mean to each others.
I told ya’, I’ve got reasons. Talk about a spiritual jambalaya.
But for the sake of today’s hiatus + passing reflection, here’s what I must share:
Have a little faith in you. In me. Open your arms wide to catch. Look up with big shiny eyes. Expect an avalanche of miracles. Boom! Turn off everything with an “On” button. Flip the faith switch instead. Activate it. Magic is always waiting to happen, if you only let it freaking be. Can you feel it?
I believe in you. But that’s not enough, you must learn to trust your deep breaths. One Mississippi. Two Mississippi. Three Mississippi. What do you hear when the noise is gone? When the party glasses are removed? When no one’s looking? When the world’s cynicism is washed out? When being cool is no longer important?
Use your new Easter Bookmark Notes to open up. Share your incoherently beautiful story.
Stop! See what happens when you do.
You would think that as an obsessive compulsive organizer I have the Holiday’s in the bag, right? Well, that would be true if a had a pinch of tolerance for shopping malls + traffic jams + Panamanian taxis’. Unlucky for me, I don’t. That complicates thing. A lot. Specially, in the gift giving department.
So what’s a gift giving aficionada to do? Santa has Rudolf. I have printables. Aleluya!

In the blog comments, I would love to know which presents that you plan on giving have you too excited for words. Maybe it’s something you’ve made with your 10 little fingers. Perhaps it’s a one of a kind piece from a local artisan. Or is it a DIY recipe you found on Pinterest? Share it!

I know the holiday season is supposed to be the best time of the year, but somewhere in between the maxed out credit card + the sugar cravings + the insane lines everywhere, things just begin to spiral out of control. It happens in Panama too, don’t feel bad.
