Best Of February: Here’s What I Shared Last Month…

fabulousfebruary

Hola dearhearts,

Happy March!

February was filled with tender moments, joyous Academy happenings and a fabulous reunion with my GM, Grant.

SO full of love.

Looking forward to the magic that March brings.

Take a peek here at fabulous February!

social media trainwreck

How To Not Be A Social Media Trainwreck

This is the story of two small businesses selling handmade stuff online.

And how they used social media differently, with great affect.

This is a true story – the one me + my team saw unfold before our eyes.

One story is one of those wonder stories – of social media done so beautifully it wins for everyone involved. (Holy Flaps)

The other – a bit of a dramatic-filled trainwreck – that still leaves us with a sour taste in our mouths to this day.

Me and my team talk about it often.

The lessons we learned from seeing it play out.

And the very different outcomes it made.

It illustrates so beautifully the do’s + don’t’s of social media.

I wanted to share it with you here to inspire you + help you find your own shining success story in social media that looks more beautiful than trainwreck-ish.

Moments: A Personal Sharing

Lately, I’ve been…

broken apart. Vulnerable. Burnt out.

Finding my way by bumping into stone.

Stumbling on to my knees.

And sometimes it hurts

but then I think

it’s easier to pray from down here.

Easier to inspect the earth from close up.

Easier to be instead of do.

It’s a holy kind of humbling.

The G.O.A.L. System For Goal Achieving Success

So… yep. I’m still banging on about goals.

And… OMG… it’s not even the FIRST WEEK OF JANUARY ANYMORE.

WHY?

Why am I banging on about them STILL?

I mean GOALS. FUCK. BORRRRRING.

I get it. I used to eye roll about them too.

Until… I started actually SETTING THEM.

And REVIEWING THEM REGULARLY.

And seeing the changes they made in my life.

I think they are the most underrated success strategy ever.

And I reckon if every spirited and heart-centered adult + teenager was using them… this world would change and be healed for the better.

Goals can EMPOWER us to make our biggest dreams come true.

I know we can all get caught up in how to write goals though.

So I wanted to give you some guidance on how to create goals that work. Some tips and tricks that will help you set and structure your goals in a way that will help you actually reach them.

Leonie’s Scrapbook: Australiaaaaa Edition

Here we are with my usual scrapbook of photos + ramblings from the past couple of weeks.

It had been a tender couple of weeks… we lost a precious member of our family…

…and have really been marinating in all that love, loss and sweet memories.

Ostara also started school full time. It’s been such a transition for us!

And now our General Manager Grant + his angel wife Jenny are with us in Australia, which is full of beauty and blessings.

A full medicine bag of all the feelings this time around.

Wow! What a month February was – can’t wait to see you back here for magical/marvelous/miraculous March!

Australia Day was a few weeks back.

So, caveats first: I wish it was celebrated on another date instead of the date us whiteys arrived. Australia is home to the longest surviving culture on the planet and they deserve to be revered and honoured. I also cringe when I see Australian flags being flown because I fear they are often the calling card of peeps with racist outlooks.

That said… I do want to celebrate with love and gratitude my home and my country of Australia. Six generations ago, my family arrived from Denmark. My blonde hair and fair skin is a terrible fucking genetic decision for someone who has grown up in the tropical heat of SkinCancertopia. And yet, and yet, my heart cannot imagine any other home. There is a magic here, a raw earthiness, a sense of humour and a cackling, crackling verve of energy that makes up my cells. Being born upon and walking this patch of earth for the past 33 years has been, always, a profound blessing. From the cattle farms and cane fields of Proserpine, the Whitsunday Islands, the wild rainforests of Cairns, the cold, brilliant island beauty of Tasmania, to the spiritual heart of Australia – Uluru, to my home in the alpine mountains of Canberra… Each place has scored beauty into my heart… Not in pastels but in vivid technicolor.

This is not to say Australia is perfect. Gosh, no. There is still so much work to be done in legislating gay marriage, putting a stop to the domestic violence epidemic, instituting educational reform, fair and equitable tax systems, Aboriginal reconciliation, removing racism and so much more.

But still – I am grateful for the fact this is a first world country with enormous blessings and opportunities for its people. My old high school mate Zetty has been an advocate in third world countries for much of the last ten years and she frequently says “Australians need to travel more to see what life is truly like for the vast majority of the worlds population. We are unbelievably blessed.” I’m grateful for our Medicare system and our hospital system snd our democracy and our roads and our air and our beaches and our schools and and and….

But most of all, to the Deva of Australia, you are my guiding light.

chris harris

Dear Chris Harris,

Thanks for choosing to comment on my Australia Day post, sharing my many complicated thoughts and feelings I have about this country – from the love that I feel for it, to the things that still need to be healed and changed.

Unfortunately, you have misread that post.

What’s more, you’ve encouraged me to commit suicide because of that. Because of my feelings over a flag? A piece of material? Really? What’s more – feelings that you have misinterpreted? How on earth could that be an appropriate response?

Why on earth would you ever wish someone to take their life over having a differing view? You may say they are just words, but it is words just like yours that have caused untold numbers of suicides. I knew a smart, beautiful, sweet-hearted girl who did. Because of words just like this. On the Internet.

I want you to know your actions are illegal and abusive. That is not ever okay. I do hope you take heed from recent situations in Hobart where Tasmania Police have pressed charges for inappropriate, offensive and abusive comments like yours. The Internet is no longer the Wild West.

Your words matter. Use them wisely. Abusive comments like this are never, ever okay. Again: they are illegal. They are abuse. They are never, ever okay.

Regards
Leonie Dawson

burnt out

I’m a wee bit crispy burnt out after a huge workbook launch. I have a few weeks of quiet time before things ramp up again. Can I please ask for suggestions of things to do? I’m usually so good at having a full life of hobbies outside of work… But I feel like the last few months have been a race to keep up with business and my family… And I’ve forgotten how to CTFO and have a life and things that fill my well. Suggestions of things to do?

180 burnout suggestions

I printed out your 180 suggestions of what to do with burnout. Am art journaling then into my fave journal. <3

50 kgs of baby carriers

50 kgs of baby carriers sent to Greece to give to Syrian refugees through Carry The Future. Big gratitude and love to everyone who donated carriers and the Angels on the ground in Greece providing love and care to those who need it most. Big thanks as well to Mr Dawson for spending many hours getting these sorted and organised ready for shipment, @sonyaforrest for finding a fantastic courier to deliver them straight to our contact in Greece, and to DHL for agreeing to give us a fantastic rate to deliver this humanitarian aid. Earth Angels all around… Humbled and grateful to walk among you all. Let’s keep sending love out into the world however we can. Xoxo L

leonie starry peanuts movie date

Took my girl to the movies for the first time. She is such a sweet, precious fairy girl. Went to see the Peanuts movie… Old school, yo. Also, because, let’s face it, anything else is too scary for me/her/us. #highlysensitiveperson

GM @grantsandrew and Social Media Manager @endlesserin having a work meetup/planning session/giggle fest at the saweeeeet Infusionsoft HQ in #Phoenix! So jealous guys…

Dev-man, Social-woman, GM-man out in Phoenix! I love seeing my team getting to hang out in person… so very important for remote workers to do that!

sacred circle smell

I went to a women’s circle.

That’s a smell I haven’t smelled on you for a very long time,” he tells me as I walk through the door. I smile up at him, knowing. I smell of sage smoke and essential oils and the blend of all the smells of the women I’ve just been hugging.

I’ve been to circle. Not just any circle either.

A miracle happened.

I got to sit with the women who entered me into sacred circle work 12 years ago. The women whose faces and stories are so familiar to me. And we spoke of how much we had searched for the circle since it closed last. How we had all been through the initiations of motherhood and adulthood.

And I realised it wasn’t just me who was grieving and missing and searching for this. It was all of us. And none of us were able to find a circle that held the high energy and integrity of that first circle we had been taught in.

So to come back now… All of us so changed and yet so the same. The great gaping years shrink as women circle once more.

I can’t say more about this yet. I am still somewhat mute. A lot of words for someone without words I know. But there it is.

Beth Starry playing outsite

My girl started full time school. My sweet girl… That blonde chubby baby… That wide eyed toddler… Now long limbed and brunette. I feel so grateful that for the last almost-six years me and Mr D have been able to spend our days with her. I’m going to miss our weekday adventures together!!!

I’m also excited for her… She is sooooo excited… Especially about there being new little three year olds in her classroom that she can mother hen on!!! It’s sweet too that we will have some solid 1-on-1 time with our Bethy. We had so much of it with Starry! And so… A new kind of normal begins.

first day of kindy

Starry’s first day of full time kindy. This was supposed to be a photo of just her but Beth fucking lost her shit until we gave her a matching hat and bag and let her pose too. She was sooooo excited to be in on the action until she realised we were leaving her YaYa at school without her. Still… We are sooooo excited for Starry to start her much loved school and excited too for plenty of one on one time with our dear Beffy.

groundhog day

GUESS WHAT ME AND LIL ARE UP TO????? RETRO NIGHT AT DA MOVIES OMG

lile and leonie groundhog day

So…. we went to watch Groundhog Day at the cinemas… And I kept playing “Groundhog Day” with the cinema staff…

By saying something… Reversing… Then doing it again. Coz… GROUNDHOG DAYYYYYYY.

I laughed my own tits off. Luckily Lile finds me hilllllarimo too.

Then we had supper at Macca’s coz nothing else was happening. Then I forced her to walk up a mountain in the dark so we could watch the stars together.

I love that my sweet Virgo friend is NOT wired to do weird shit… But follows me anyway and we laugh our asses as we do it.

Can’t wait to do it again. GETTTTTTT ITTTTTTTTTTTT GETTTTTTTT ITTTTTTTTTTT? #nedryerson

Three hours of being witnessed, seen, expanded, lovingly encouraged to grow, reminded of who I am and what I am capable of. It was equal parts uncomfortable, stunning and hilarious. And just what is needed. Laying the foundation for what will come next.

The people I work with make me a better person… Better at life and better at business. Thank you @grantsandrew and @sonyaforrest for going on this great adventure with me. They remind me again and again to hire incredible people who will teach you and support you 100%. What a world of change.

birdsnest

Had the coolest shopping experience of my life at @birdsnestonline … A clothing shop in a country town that is revolutionising company culture, technology, styling & social media. Incredibly inspirational. They even showed us around their amazing work digs filled with 90 happy, bustling souls!!! Anything is possible guys… Even as a local store in a small country town!!! Happy to be a part of their family. #birdsnestgirl

mornings with beff

I love these mornings alone with my baby. I feel like such a better mama when it’s just one on one. Less crazy making. Sweeter.

charlie starry

He passed away, in my arms, as I whispered the names of everyone who loved him and all the adventures we’ve ever had. Charlie our Happy Healer dog, my studio buddy, my little spoon, our ridiculous magician. We are tender and teary. Raw. And I also just feel so lucky we had him for so long. Our grand old puppy was 14. He brought us so much joy. He made me and Chris a family when we were so young. Charlie mate… As you make your rainbow journey… Please know you left a trail of stardust and love and laughter in all our lives. I will carry you in my heart.

charlie

Got home and burst into tears. He wasn’t in the backyard, waiting patiently for me. There’s a Charlie-shaped hole in my life.

so you're charlie...

A sweet friend sent this to me… Makes my heart happy.

cuddles

Cuddles on the couch after a big, sore, tender week.

Guess where I’m at?

perm

I got a perm. That looks almost exactly like my usual curly hair. Well… That was painful, time consuming and expensive. Still, I can tick it off my bucket list of experiences to have!

 

weird al

This perm makes me look like a famous person. And by “famous person” I mean “Weird Al Yankovich”

 

best dad

I often just watch him with them and just think… I’m so glad my girls have a dad like him.

 

crafternoon

Crafternoon with the kids. I managed a journal spread plus fixing up of a needle felted wall hanging, in between the toddler tipping water everywhere, the kids fighting over brushes, my five year old tearing out my finished art journal pages in an attempt to be “helpful”. After 30 minutes of art-making with kids, I need 2 hours to recover.

diy

Sewing patches onto Starry’s favourite dress from @littlelomshop … She’s been wearing it every week (at least) for two years and got a big tear in it while running wild at school. She’s going to be so excited that she can wear it again!!! #reducereuserecycle

million dollar women

Just started reading this and am just devouring it up: “Million Dollar Women” by @juliapimsleur. I love a business biography, and this one includes super helpful tips on raising capital. I’m slightly out of the book’s target market as it is to help women scale up to a million dollars, and I’m into multi-millions now, but this is still useful and interesting. A good read for business women. Defo one to go in my annual best book roundup! #leoniestopbooks2016

beth and starry watching movie

Sometimes they get so cranky and fight so much we escape to the bedroom and set up a screen and watch TV. And then pretty soon this happens again.

granto is coming

Haha!!! No more duo photos requiring a head on a stick! After a year of working together me and my brother from the cosmic womb @grantsandrew are going to meet! He & his Angel wife Jen are coming to Australia for a month long dreaming, planning and creating retreat! @sonyaforrest will join us as the countdown begins for our 2 day Shining Biz Conference in Canberra. It is going to be awesome!!!! Are you coming??? Will I cuddle you there????

BAHAHAHAHAHAAAAAAA I SPOKE TOO SOON!!!!! Leonie On A Stick continues!!!! @grantsandrew and Jen decided to bring it around the world with them!!!! They crack me up!!!! See you soon guys!!!! Safe travels!!!!

Two sick little munchkins… I fear our Welcoming Party at the airport for @grantsandrew just reduced in size. Still… I’m sure they will rally and forget of their woes once they have VISITORS! THEY CAN PERFORM IN FRONT OF! In the meantime… I’m going to cuddle and cuddle and cuddle and pretend I can’t move because they neeeed a Mama-sized hot water bottle.

:::Phone is ringing:::

Grant and his sweet wife JenJen are here! BRB, GOING TO PICK UP MY BROTHER FROM ANOTHER MOTHA!

See you soon with Leonie’s Scrapbook: #TheAndrewsInAustralia Edition

The G.O.A.L. System For Goal Achieving Success!

21Jan Quick but powerful

Possums!

So… yep. I’m still banging on about goals.

And… OMG… it’s not even the FIRST WEEK OF JANUARY ANYMORE.

WHY?

Why am I banging on about them STILL?

I mean GOALS. FUCK. BORRRRRING.

I get it. I used to eye roll about them too.

Until… I started actually SETTING THEM.

And REVIEWING THEM REGULARLY.

And seeing the changes they made in my life.

I think they are the most underrated success strategy ever.

And I reckon if every spirited and heart-centered adult + teenager was using them… this world would change and be healed for the better.

Goals can EMPOWER us to make our biggest dreams come true.

17

Why is it important to set goals?

  • We need guidance + advice to propel us into the direction of our dreams.
  • We need support systems to help us make it happen.
  • We need to spend time dreaming up our vision.
  • When we don’t get clarity around where we’ve been and where we want to do, we get stuck in the same old place & same old routine.
  • We need to let go of all the old past stuff & be grateful for it so we can move onwards.
  • We need delicious, probing questions to help us get to the soul of what it is we need.

I know we can all get caught up in how to write goals though.

So I wanted to give you some guidance on how to create goals that work. Some tips and tricks that will help you set and structure your goals in a way that will help you actually reach them.

I like to call this…

the…

(drum roll please)

G.O.A.L. method.

Fuck, that’s handy right?

HOW ON EARTH WILL WE REMEMBER IT???

Okay…

let’s get started babe!

GOAL NOTEPAD

  GET MOTIVATED

G: Get Motivated

Absolutely every single goal you set for the rest of your life should be motivating to you.

You may think that goals by their very nature are motivating, but that’s totes not true. For example, saying “I want to quit smoking/lose 3 kilograms/stop picking my nose and eating it,” is not motivating AT ALL.

It focuses on LOSS… not GAIN.

Without a motivational component, it is easy to become frustrated and even annoyed by goals.

There are bunches of ways to add a motivational component to your goals. All you have to do is really get to the heart of why you want to achieve the particular goal.

Maybe quitting smoking really = saving enough dosh to go sit on the beach for a week and no longer hacking a lung up.

Maybe losing weight really = having so much energy you can run after the kidliwinks (or run after them super quickly so you can go to the toilet on your own #motivational)

Maybe stopping picking your nose = leaving calories for gluten free sticky date pudding. #priorities

Anyways… find the piece that makes you feel like a winner. And remember that. Over and over. In your head.

Coz it will get hard. But you need the good dream to hang on to.

OBSERVABLE

O: Observable

Make your progress observable and rewardable.

This could be as specific as keeping a spreadsheet of your progress as you lose weight, or as vague as taking a monthly progress pic. The Shining Year Workbook Collection has ways that you can check in daily, weekly, monthly and/or yearly to make sure you are tracking your goals.

Another way to do this is with a technique called ‘Don’t Break The Chain.’ This involves getting a giant wall calendar (like the Shining Year Wall Calendar) dedicated exclusively to your goals. Hang it somewhere prominent and then every day that you successfully work towards your goal, you get to place a big red heart over that day. Plus, another excuse to get some fabulous unicorn stickers with glitter! #winnnnahhhhhhhhh

After a few weeks, the psychological aspect of not wanting to break your chain of success will kick in because you can actually visualize each day of work you put in leading up to that day. You can structure almost any goal in a way that works with this technique.

21Jan G O A L

A: Actionable

Your goals need to be actionable! Don’t just make vague promises to yourself. This means they need to be specific and highlight targets and ways to get to those targets. Wanna go pretend you are Heidi and yodel in the Swiss Alps with the fam bam? I get it. I understand. I too have this goal. So much so I have been practicing yodelling for many years now. I feel I am becoming incredibly gifted at it. My husband parrrrrrticularly enjoys this hobby of mine. As soon as travelling with kids does NOT make me want to stab myself in the face with a cucumber, I am allllllll the fuck over that Swiss Alp. Like… Swiss cheese on bread. Holy.

MWAHAHAHAHAHA.

Anyways…

So… back on track. The goat track. The one up the mountain that Heidi goes on.

I AM KIDDING.

But seriously. I am sooooooo-o-o-o-o-o-o-o-o-ooooooo good at this. #heidipuns #yodelfest

If you… like me… have big hairy (goat) goals like I… do this:

Take the time to calculate how much money you would need to save to pay for that dream trip for your family.

Once you figure that out, you can outline a plan of attack. Maybe this includes figuring out how much you need to put aside each day between now and your desired holiday and follow the ‘Don’t Break the Chain’ strategy outlined above.

Please also make sure yodelling is on your agenda. #IMPORTANT

LEEWAY

L: Leeway

Reality time:

You’re going to fuck it up a little as you go.

You are going to fall off the path sometimes.

So babe… you really do need to give yourself room to momentarily fail on your road to success. If you lose five pounds then gain two back, don’t just give up. It happens to the very best of us! But that doesn’t mean you lay down beside the road and just die… you get right back on that magical unicorn and keep moving towards your goal.

The reality is that over the course of a year you will make a lot of mistakes. I mean fuck guys… I make a lot of ’em. That’s part of doing business, part of “being in the arena” as Brené says. Part of Daring Greatly. Part of Rising Strong after a fall. (SUUUUCH A BRENÉ FANGIRL)

You need to understand this and not let them discourage you. Taking everything in stride and not allowing setbacks to permanently take you of the path to your goal will make it much more likely you reach the finish line of your success!

GOAL

GOAL!

So… follow these steps and you’ll be well on your way to reaching those big beautiful goals of yours (whether they include goat herding or not.)

If you are truly ready for 2016 to be your most incredible year yet, in life or in business (or gasp! in BOTH?) I’m here to help you do just that… easily, cheaply + powerfully.

We’re running out of stock FAST. We’re down to our last few boxes!

It’s time to make a decision, gorgeous soul.

#2016planners Competition Winnahs!

2016 COMPETITION WINNERS

Dear petals,

One of my absolute favourite parts of releasing the Shining Year Workbooks + Planners each year is seeing them out in the wild.

It brings such a smile to my dial to see you at home in your pj’s, drinking chai tea with your cat flopped over on top of your workbooks. It puts all of the time + dedication into perspective and the reward of seeing others enjoy your pride + joy is overwhelmingly amazing.

We’ve received photos from all over the world – from Utah to New Zealand, from Pakistan to Barbados. Where haven’t these babies been? I’m prettttttty sure they have more damn passport stamps than me! (Well… I only have three truth be told. India, Malaysia + Singapore. Ain’t so bad!)

BUT STILL!!!!

Anywaysies… after going through over ONE THOUSAND photos for this year’s #2016planner Social Media Competition, we have narrowed it down to our most scenic + most creative choices!

The lucky winners will each receive a 1-year Shining Biz & Life Academy membership (worth $497!)

Ba, ba, ba, ba, ba, baaaaaaaaaaaaaaaa

The winner of the most scenic…

This is bloody breathtaking.  Not to mention, cold, so very cold there would be holes in your book from whence your nipples have scored holes in them… but oh so beautiful, natural and untouched.

Most creative…

HAHAHAHA!
