2014 best books

Party peeps,

I really look forward to doing these posts each year.

You can find 2013’s here. 2012’s here.

I kinda feel like it’s the post that takes me the longest to write each year. I read stacks of books. I choose the best of the ones I read to share with you.

When I say “best”, I really mean “my highly subjective favouritism” aka “the books that strike the bell of my soul for some reason or another.”

I’ve done some ranking this year. Because there were some that were total STAND OUTS for me. And some I’m not sure if anyone will “get” – or indeed if even I would “get” again if I re-read, but for whatever reason, I learned something good and wonderful from them or was touched by them in the moment.

Also, as always, these are NOT solely books that were published in the year of 2014. They are instead organised “autobiographically” – just like in High Fidelity – because I’ve read them this year.

Also, I don’t review like normal reviews. I don’t even know if I really talk about the books properly.

Funnily enough, I fell upon Amanda Palmer’s book review for the year + dug how she reviewed in her own “impressionistic + haiku” style.

I’ll continue to review in my patented “fluent in florid side-story” and “panoply of feeeeeeeeelings” style.

YOU ARE WELCOME.

Enough with the disclaimer-y shenanigans.

Let’s play!

I fucking love books!

A++ BOOKS I EFFING DUG

RoomToRead

Creating Room To Read – John Wood

Okay. I need to emotionally prepare myself to even talk about this.

But I don’t want to overtalk it so you go in expecting you are going to be reading The Greatest Book Of All Time, and then realise it is ordinary and wonderful and special, but definitely not the image I built it up to be, and be disappointed by that, when in fact this book is just so bloody great and it was just a case of disjointed expectations.

But. But.

Honestly, I kept telling Chris as I was reading it:

This is the best book I’ve ever read in my life.

It’s not poetic. It’s not literature.

But it is inspiring as all freaking get out. Grounded. Heart-opening. Brilliant.

It’s the true story of a bloke who quit Microsoft to build libraries around the world, in the belief that books + education change lives + elevate poverty.

And build them he did. He applied his business brilliance to a non-profit model, and in the span of 10 years, built 10 000 libraries.

Incredibly powerful.

It inspired me, touched me, taught me some fantastic business lessons + was just a thrilling delight of a book to read.

If you were going to read any book from this list, LET IT BE THIS!!!!!!!!!! SRSLY!!!!! WHY ARE YOU STILL HERE + NOT CLICKING + GETTING IT ALREADY?????

You should read this: Before you were born. Every human should.

{F3649ECE-E5DC-478B-AF34-584BC46F75A5}Img100

I Feel Bad About My Neck - Nora Ephron

This book should be in here purely because it’s:

  1. My very first Nora book
  2. What took me so freaking long to read a Nora book
  3. I ADORE her movies. ADORE. She wrote You’ve Got Mail. Sleepless in Seattle. When Harry Met Sally. She IS rom-com, man!
  4. I adore her movies so much, and they have such a distinct voice, and that voice IS Nora’s, so it felt like reading extended scenes out of YGM or WHMS, which is pretty much my version of heaven, therefore
  5. Reading her book was ecstasy and home all at once.

It should go without saying that I’m going to work my way through all her books now.

Don’t cry, shopgirl.

You should read this: If you are in possession of a vag.

CR_Lena_Dunham_website_Joana_Avillez_2048

Not That Kind of Girl – Lena Dunham

Yah, yah, blah, blah, controversy, Lena, yah.

Okay, now that’s out of the way, can I just say:

This book is fucking tops.

Her honesty was breathtaking. Her vulnerability is magical.

I reckon the sharing of her stories is immensely healing for so many young women who think

This only happens to me. No one else feels like this.

You should read this: If you feel like it. If you’re called. I wouldn’t push anyone into reading a book UNLESS IT IS CREATING ROOM TO READ AND OMG I CAN’T BELIEVE YOU ARE READING IT ALREADY.

What was I saying? Oh yes. Read this if you’re cool with strong flavours.

good-to-great-jim-collins

Good to Great – Jim Collins

This is hilariously obvious to choose as a great book… considering how it’s #1 in Amazon in Business + probably has been for a zillion years.

But ya know… it’s popular for good reason.

It’s because Jimbo (yes, that’s what I call him in my head, and that’s what I call all Jims in my head – I’m physically unable to call them anything but Jimbo #sorrynotsorry) lays out a really good, clear plan for developing a company and taking it to the next level.

As my company is moving up into the 7 figure field, I needed something to give me a good overall plan of areas to focus on.

This book has been that for me.

Handy hint: This year, I bought some great business books as hardcover copies instead of Kindle.

And I use them as full study companions. I go through them with pen and highlighter, taking notes and paying attention.

Really sucking on the marrow of the book. Highly nutritious for le brain gizzards.

You should read this: If you’re doing over a half a mil’ in your business I reckon.

popular_maya

Popular: Vintage Wisdom For A Modern Geek – Maya van Wagenen

I didn’t expect to be so touched by this book.

I actually found it to be spiritual and self-helpish, with lots of wonderful Aha! moments.

Totally struck the bells of my soul.

I kinda wish I could revisit my angsty teenager self and hand her this book.

You should read this: If you want to know how to be popular/aka get over your own shit and just talk to people already.

wgw

What God Wants – Neale Donald Walsh

This one has been my “Dunny Read” of the year.

Aka: the book that lives in the cupboard beside the toilet and I read a page or two a day.

I wonder why it took me so long to get to reading it.

I bought it eight or so years ago in India, in a little bookstore in smoggy, dusty, claustrophobic New Delhi.

But then I remember that these things always happen at just the right time.

It’s been waiting for me to be ready.

It blows my freakin’ head off, this book does.

I mean, all Neale’s books are bloody tops.

This one has actually changed my perspective on a lot of stuff.

Like this conversation I had with Chris a few weeks ago.

We were discussing a friend making some difficult choices.

And usually I would so firmly know the answer of the choice they should make (bloody judgmental know-it-all Scorpio! hahahaha!).

But this time, I said to Chris:

“If God wants nothing for us but what we want, why would I want anything else. I only want that person to be happy if they want to be happy. If it’s their soul’s journey and desire to experience something else, why would I want anything but that? I feel free knowing this. It’s like knowing I just get to keep loving without worrying about the right or wrong choice for them.”

He’s a Neale-fan too, so he gets it.

It was a revelation.

You should read this: If you’re ready.

The Art of Asking – Amanda Palmer

I love how very much Amanda does Amanda.

The woman is bravely vulnerable and shares her heart with the world on a daily basis.

This book is delicious and compelling.

Read this if: You hate askin’ for stuff. Are a business owner or a creative owner. Or if you dig AFP and want to read her wonderful creative career stories.

THE REST OF THE VERY GOOD BUT NON-RACE LEADERS BOOKS:

Okay, I don’t have as much time as I usually do (I have a nine month old adorable baby who doesn’t feel great anywhere but in mama’s arms right now). So I’m going to make my “good reads but not A+++ books” reviews as succinct as possible. This should be fun.

What I Know For Sure – Oprah Winfrey

Oprah. Sometimes obvious but still useful.

The International Bank of Bob – Bob Harris

Fucking great. Highly inspiring. Best adventure/travel memoir of a Kiva donor who goes to visit peeps around the world who he has loaned money too.

The Glitter Plan – Pamela Skaist-Levy + Gela Nash-Taylor

I heart business women biographies for ever.

#GIRLBOSS – Sophia Amoruso

Same.

Think like a Stripper – Erika Lyremark

Same. Plus added raunch.

Yes Please – Amy Poehler

A little bit scattered, but some holy fucking WOW moments. You go girl!

The Wisdom of Compassion – Dalai Lama

Dalai Lama. Derp = of course it’s good.

Paradise in Plain Sight – Karen Maezen Miller

I will read every book from this zen monk for the rest of time.

How to Deal with Haters – Cyrus Kirkpatrick

Useful.

Share Your Work – 10 Ways to Share Your Creativity and Get Discovered – Austin Kleon

Buy it in book form, not Kindle. Kindle doesn’t do artsy books like these justice. Double thumbs up.

The Fence-Painting Fortnight of Destiny – Meshel Laurie and All That Happened At Number 26 – Denise Scott

These aren’t completely amazing, but they are funny and interesting. I think I just really like chick biographies. Heals something in me.

Mud, Sweat and Tears – Bear Grylls and A Survival Guide for Life – Bear Grylls

Make that all biographies. Also: I am a rabid ass Bear fan for life after these two brilliant reads. Highly highly recommend. Gutsy, sweaty self help that dudes + chicks love.

Sealed with a Kiss – Rachael Lucas and Love At The Speed of Email - Lisa McKay

My two rom com picks for the year. High fives!

 

Okay, books forever!!!!!

 

Loveeeee,

 

*****

A SPECIAL NOTE:

If you haven’t worked out yet (maybe I haven’t mentioned it enough! Ha!)

I wrote a book. Well, it’s not really a BOOKBOOK per se.

It’s a workbook. One for you to write in and fill out.

There’s two versions: the LIFE + BUSINESS versions.

Both are bloody helpful.

The LIFE version guides you through the process of making peace with 2014 and working out all the medicine and lessons you received from it. I think so often we surge towards the new year without truly taking stock and celebration and resolving the year that was. I know this is really important work to do.

And it will get you to set goals for the next year in all areas of your life:

  • financial
  • health
  • relationships
  • creativity
  • career
  • education
  • family

The response I hear from women about using the LIFE version is that more of their goals and dreams come true than ever before, and they end the year in a WAY better place than they began it in.

The BUSINESS version is (in my books) absolutely ESSENTIAL if you own a business.

I don’t really know why you wouldn’t get it, to be honest.

It will take you (in a really fun, loving, creative, easy, non-boring, doable way) through a full review of your business in 2014 from:

  • what the money situation was like (gross/net/profit) (I can’t believe how many peeps don’t know their numbers in business. It’s so important possum. You need to know the numbers if you want to grow)
  • what your top selling services/products were (this is HIGHLY insightful. I always have a major insight each year where I see how much time I’ve spent on shit that doesn’t earn much dobleros, and where I can easily earn more. I gave a copy of the book to our nanny, and the next morning she told me she had only just filled out this section and the book was already worth it for her because of the insights she’d gotten. Tops!)
  • what worked and what didn’t (in marketing/staffing/contractors/suppliers etc etc)

And then it will help you create an easy, awesome business plan for 2015 including:

  • income goals
  • income streams (i.e. products and services)
  • your business mission statement
  • marketing goals
  • staffing goals
  • customer service goals
  • social media goals
  • and much much more!!!!

Phew!

Facebook_Graphic_V3

So here’s the thing:

I reckon if you have a business OR if you just want your life to be happier…

I have not a freakin’ goshdarn clue why you WOULDN’T buy the workbook.

This baby is not a flash in the pan. It’s not some new thing that hasn’t been trialled.

This shit works.

How do I know?

This is our SIXTH year of producing them.

We’ve sold over 50 000 copies and counting.

We have women who are die-hard raving fans of this book.

Who’ve used it every single year since it was created.

Screenshot 2014-12-27 13.16.11 Screenshot 2014-12-27 13.16.01

Why?

Because they get RESULTS from using it.

They see a HUGE difference in their life or business from using it.

It helps them have the life/biz they truly dream of.

So honestly, I say to you with love:

I don’t understand why you’d be interested in reading any of my shit if you aren’t bothering to invest in the (cheap as chips) workbook.

Because until YOU do the shit that’s going to move you forward (i.e. setting goals, aligning your actions with your intentions, investing in you, making positive change)… nothing will change. It’s all up to you.

You have complete responsibility over your own situation. You are the creator of your own world.

And you can be totally ignoring that responsibility, or claiming that nothing works for you, or just letting life take you wherever it leads.

Or you can step up, claim your role as Creative Queen of your Kingdom, and make those sparkling whispers of dreams and wishes inside you LET LOOSE into the world.

I mean, it’s up to you.

Only buy the freakin’ workbooks and use them if you want to be happier // more abundant.

If you don’t want that, CLICK AWAY NOW. RUNNNNNNNNN!

You can do whatever your heart calls you to in this magical world.

But it’s NOT going to just happen to you.

It’s something you need to choose for yourself.

Make the decision NOW, love.

What’s it going to be?

Choose to step up? Or Step Away?

It’s okay if your Christmas does NOT make you feel like this.

Dearest:

I want to say:

I hope you are having a merry Christmas filled with love and kindness and laughter

but I also want to say:

It’s okay if you’re not. Truly, it’s okay.

It doesn’t have to be perfect. It doesn’t have to be good. Whatever it needs to be, it is.

I think for a long time I hunted and yearned and grieved over Christmasses being imperfect. How in some way, how good one single day was would be the measurement of my life.

But it’s not. It’s truly not.

The measurement of my life is the ordinary days. The little moments adding up with each other to culminate in a life well loved.

I want to say it’s okay if things aren’t perfect. If you don’t have everyone together. If you don’t have a big, happy, functional extended family (or any kind of family at all). If everyone isn’t happy. If the kids are whiny or you are whiny or there are no kids and instead of noise there is silence.

It’s okay. It’s okay. It’s okay.

You’re not broken, you are whole.

Christmas wasn’t meant to be anything but what it is:

Whatever appears for you. Whatever your day is composed of right now.

Whatever happens.

Sometimes it can be so hard to actually just genuinely relax and have fun and enjoy when there’s so much external pressure for Christmas to be HAPPY! FULL OF FAMILY! PERFECTLY COMPOSED! NO PROBLEMS EVER!

And the pressure builds up until we inevitably feel overwhelmed, crabby and heartsick at why our life doesn’t look like the way we think others’ lives are.

(Extra resources: I like what Sarah Wilson wrote about Christmasses: that without fail, she cries at each one just from the build up of energy. Ask Moxie is always wise about basically everything, but especially kids, and I think this post about not having high expectations is stellar.)

If nothing more, Christmas serves as a time for us to pause in the stillness before another year begins. To look back and see what just happened. The blessings and the shit and the hard stuff and the miracles, all tied together in a bundle of a year. Who you were a year ago. Who you are now. You might be feeling a little more war-torn but I can bet a hundred bucks you are wiser, deeper and lovelier than you could ever know.

That’s all my darlings.

Wherever you are:

in the midst of the BEST DAY EVER or the Shittiest Crapfest of the Century or something I like to call a Festival of Awkward, or something in between:

I want you to know you’re okay. You’re whole. Everything is going to be okay. It’s okay for things to be how they are today.

Your whole life is waiting for you. All the ordinary days to come.

And it’s going to be bloody beautiful.

So much love,

A LIL UPDATE FROM LEONIELAND!

So my treasures,

I hope you have a magical celebration season.

Or, if it sucks borg, or is completely quiet and dull and normal, may you know that that is okay too.

(Read: In Praise Of Ordinary Christmases. Or Incase Your Christmas Sucks Borg.)

We are celebrating our last tropical Christmas. By the end of next month, we’ll have moved to Tasmania – a beautiful island on the other side of Australia. I owe you a blog post about that, about the how and the magical why and all that. It’s on my to-do list which is a hundred million miles long.

This season is always our busiest patch of the year with the workbooks. Luckily I only hire Jewish peeps + workaholics. I KID. I KID. #kinda

This morning/week/month/four months has been really, really full on as we established our own printing company for the workbooks, and have worked with overseas printing houses, shipping companies, Customs and distribution houses to deliver these workbooks the way we wanted. I haven’t pulled this many late nights for a looong time. It’s been a lil cuckoo.

I know though that the hard part has been done though, and it’s just setting us up for the next stage and evolution of the workbooks + getting them into every corner of the globe where women are needing them to claim and create joyful lives + abundant businesses.

I’m bloody excited for what is to come… and incredibly grateful for everything that’s happened.

2014 was the year we brought Beth into the world. My pregnancy with her was such a difficult initiation of illness with hyperemesis gravidarum. I really find it hard remembering that this time last year I was barfing up Christmas lunch, and spent the vast majority of the day in bed rocking back and forward.

She is absolutely our own miracle. I can’t believe such a bonny, bouncing babe (aka SUPERCHUBS) came from such a debilitating illness.

I’m immensely grateful that she told me I was wrong when I thought I was only having one child.

I’m immensely grateful that she chose me.

I’m immensely grateful for the special connection my two daughters have. Through and through, they chose each other.

And I’m grateful for the completion of our family. The Awesome Dawson Foursome.

This Christmas, it’ll be us four, plus my wild bushman dad.

We’re planning on eating + drinking our way around all the foodie places/farms.

Going slow, gentle + all that good stuff.

I’ll still be popping in for work.

But mostly I’ll be saying to the sky, the sunrise, the sunset:

Thank you.

Thank you for all of this.

All my love,

2014 Christmas Card Picture sml

On a day like today, I cannot not say anything.

And yet, I don’t know what to say.

Except that I feel deeply sad.

I don’t know what to do.

I pray for peace. I pray for this not to be turned into any kind of religious intolerance. I pray for this not to turn into war.

I pray for those two beautiful souls that died. I pray for their families and all who knew them. I pray for the deva of Sydney, the spirit of the city, that has one great gaping hole in it today.

We will not become jaded. We will not become closed off. We will not hurt each other.

We will not slacken our gun laws in the hopeless thought that more guns would create more peace.

We will not believe that this is a terrorist attack. It wasn’t. It was the act of one disturbed, broken, violent soul. We will not believe it was the act of any organisation, any religion.

We will have our hearts cracked and softened. We will sit with ourselves, with the pains, the shock, the grief that arise. We will tend to ourselves. We will go gently. We will not lash out. We will reach out. We will talk together as gently as we can, and see what can be done. We will continue to grow our community, our cities, our world based in the values of respect, kindness and love.

There is no other way but love. Fear, intolerance and backlash only creates more of the same. Let us look at South Sudan, where they don’t even know what they fight for any longer, only that there is an Us and a Them.

We know different.

We know there is only ever us.

We will ride with each other. We will ride with our own selves.

We will face the great, gaping void.

And we will choose love, not fear.

We know it will make the difference.

In tender love today,
Leonie

P.S. I am sorry for your pain. Me too. xoxo

The post Note From Leonie: Update about 2015 Printed Workbooks! appeared first on Leonie Dawson - Shining Life + Biz.

sorry

Hey lovelies,

I wanted to give you an update about 2015 printed workbook orders.

We’ve had some huge delays along the way with the workbooks. I wanted to give you a headsup about what’s happening and when you can expect your books.

(Not digital workbook orders! If you’ve ordered them and they haven’t arrived in your email, email us el pronto – support@leoniedawson.com and we’ll get you sorted ASAP!)

  • This year, we decided to self-publish + distribute the books ourselves so that we could create a much better product for you (spiral bound! free wall planner! more awesomeness! bonus accompanying meditation MP3 + goal-setting course delivered by email!) at a better/more stable price! I utterly know for sure it was the right thing to do, and it’s also been a huuuuuuge undertaking with many, many late nights + nutty days by me, my love, my team, our printers and our mailing houses to try and get this baby out in time.
  • We totally considered doing mailing from in-house so we could have more control. We ran the figures and knew we would be totally unable to keep up with demand of sending up to a thousand books a day. I love my post office lady Cindy a LOT… but not enough to be spending all day every day at the post office with her writing a gazillion Customs declarations!
  • We outsourced + found mailing house experts + have contracted mailing houses in THREE countries – UK, US & AUS – to try and make shipping as fast and affordable for you as possible. Unfortunately this has totally added to the complexity of it all!
  • We were scheduled to start delivering books from 1 December. We opened orders before then as pre-orders.
  • UK + Aus mailing houses started delivering books from 1 December.
  • US (+ Canada + South America) orders were delayed as US Customs held up our shipment until last week. Once they were cleared, our US mailing house have been working hard at the backlog of 1400+ books that were due to be sent out. We’re hoping the whole backlog will be all sent out from this week. I’m sorry. We’re doing everything we can. They do seem to be arriving very quickly once they’ve dispatched. We’re super hopeful everyone will get their orders delivered before Xmas.
  • You will be sent a shipping confirmation [and tracking number if available] once your workbooks have been sent out from the mailing house. Unfortunately we are unable to provide shipping and tracking information prior to the mailing center sending this email to you.
  • We’ve been hearing that some lovely enthusiastic peeps found our hidden test sales pages before they were live, and placed orders before our shopping cart was live, and before we’d even announced the workbooks. If you placed an order before 18 November, chances are you’ve placed a fake order (that would also not have processed with your credit card). I’m sorry – we were caught completely unaware. A little bit like being caught naked as we were changing! Email us (support@leoniedawson.com) to make sure we have your order.
  • We’ve heard from some Australians that they didn’t realise workbooks were priced in US dollars and wondered why they are. I wanted to be totally transparent with you so you know why we sell in US dollars (for all our stuff, and have for years):
    – We sell 75% of our books to the US. They are our major market. On top of this, we sell to over 70 countries. US currency is far more easily recognised than Australian.
    – We can’t sell in more than one currency due to our shopping cart.
    – We prominently display on every single purchase button that it is in US dollars.
    – If you’re not sure what the exchange rate is from US dollars to AUS, you can always check a currency convertor website like this one.

  • If you haven’t received your order, please, please EMAIL us (support@leoniedawson.com). We’ll be able to confirm for you whether your order has been received, and that it’s been sent to the mailing house for them to send your book out to you. We can’t control how quickly they then send the book out because it depends on their shipping loads + containers, but they promise us that it is happening as fast as they can.
  • EMAIL is the best, quickest way for us to get things resolved. I think sometimes we all get a bit complacent and think Facebook comments are enough. Unfortunately, they do get lost in the blend – we don’t see them, and you don’t see when we’ve replied to you. Also, the joy of EMAIL is that we are much more easily able to find your order for you!
  • My lovely support fairies (Joyce, Erin + Amber) are working their lil fingers off right now. We are getting a huge amount of emails as this is our busiest month of the year. We are trying to get to your emails as fast as we can and we are receiving hundreds upon hundreds of emails each day which require a whole lot of love and attention.

Thank you all so so so much for your orders, love + enthusiasm.

This has been such a hugely frustrating and at times quite scary journey as we deal with organisations that are outside of our control (Customs + the distribution houses!). When I rule the world, this shiz would get sorted el pronto!

We’re doing absolutely everything we can to get them to you in time for Christmas.

I’m so sorry this is taking so long. I’m so sorry for the hiccups. We’re doing absolutely everything we can. And of course, I’ll be sharing every bloody lesson we’ve learned along the way!

I really realllllly love this workbook, and I am fiercely proud of what we’ve managed to pull off this year. I think you are going to be absolutely delighted once it is in your hands… creating the magic for you.

Can’t wait.

Until then… GROUP HUGS!!!!

Love you all long time,

There’s so much beautiful energy and excitement around these books.

It really is my favourite time of the year.

Just wanted to remind you that only have a couple of days left to purchase the gift of an incredible year for Christmas presents (but you better get cracking!!!!)

The 2015 workbooks make perfect gifts for:

  • soul sisters + dear friends
  • actual sisters (!)
  • teenage daughters
  • co-workers
  • clients
  • business associates!

Two examples of gifting I love:

One best-selling author has bought 50(!!!!) to give to her coaches.

Another has bought dozens to give to her private-level mastermind.

YOU CAN GIFT:

HAS THE BOOK CHANGED?

It’s significantly different from 2010-2013 workbooks, and slightly different from 2014.

I’ve added pages including:

  • Monthly check-in sheets to make sure you stay on track throughout the year
  • A checklist of what to do if you fall of the workbook wagon

Also, the printed workbook this year has:

  • Free A2 wall planner
  • Notes section
  • And is spiral bound to make it much easier to use as a workbook!

testimonials_flattened 2

 

ARE YOU SELLING ON AMAZON THIS YEAR?

No – the ONLY way you can order the book through this year is through our website.

Lots of reasons why we’ve done this – but mostly so that we could provide you with:

  • a spiral bound book
  • a free bonus A2 wall planner
  • affiliate commission if you want to share about them!

To make shipping as affordable and fast for you as possible, we have the books in mailing houses in THREE countries:

  • United States
  • United Kingdom
  • Australia

We did have some hiccups getting through US Customs, but that’s all settled now and our US mailing house is fully functioning now!

HOW IS IT DIFFERENT FROM EVERYTHING ELSE OUT THERE?

This makes me giggle. When I started producing these goals workbooks six years ago… there was really nothing else like it on the market.

A workbook? To sort out goals for the next year? One that did life goals? And business goals?

Unheard of.

It’s so funny to think of those times.

Because of the success of my workbooks, there are a metric shittonne of peeps who’ve riffed their own version of it.

Some have copied questions + even my illustration style + handwriting.

It’s been pretty funny (and sometimes upsetting honestly when I see blatant copies… the world wants to see everyone’s soul gifts… not just endless copies of the same stuff).

Each year I totally try and outdo myself and make it even better + bigger + more powerful than the years before. We’re kinda working on six years of having results, so it’s workin’ in our favour. 40 000 peeps can’t be wrong!

And it’s really heart-warming to get from peeps like this.

I tried the other workbooks. And they just do NOT work the same as yours. I don’t get the same results. I’m now your workbook devotee for life.

testimonials_flattened 42

 

DO YOU SHIP TO MALAYSIA/UZBEKISTAN/MONGOLIA/BACK OF BOURKE?

Yes.

We ship internationally.

Our mailing houses are in US, UK + Aus.

We’re working on intergalactically. Branson, you and me should hook up to sort this out. ALIEN GODDESSES NEED THIS FREAKIN BOOK.

The 2015 workbook right where it belongs, amongst all the hippy accoutrements! Thanks Naughty Naturopath Mum!

WILL THE WORKBOOKS WORK FOR ME?

Here’s a handy guide.

 You’re only allowed to get this workbook if you:

  • love rainbows
  • have big dreams that you want to see come true
  • aren’t a big whiny victim (booo is for boooring!)
  • are willing to actually do the work
  • want to actually see + create change in your life + biz in 2015.

Otherwise DO NOT CLICK ON ME. SERIOUSLY.

testimonials_flattened 112

HOW DO I BUY MORE?

Want to buy more than five?

We’d LOVE that! Just email us at support@leoniedawson.com with your address + how many you want to receive, and we’ll work out a price for you!

A PORTION OF EVERY SALE GOES TO CHARITY!

Goes to a range of charities that are changing the world, including Kiva, World Vision, Doctors Without Borders + WWF.

Stunning setup. Thanks Sabrina Jensen in Denmark (by the way… that’s where my ancestry is from!!! My maiden-maiden-maiden name is Anderson!)

ORDER NOW FOR CHRISTMAS DELIVERY

Seriously guys. You have to get your butt into gear if you want to order.

If you are living in:

  • Australia
  • United Kingdom
  • US

you should get your workbooks before Chrissy if you order now.

If you’re outside of those countries, I don’t know. I bloody well hope so, but there’s no accounting for Customs, my current Arch Nemesis!

(That IS of course for printed books. You CAN order the electronic versions and have 100% chance of it being delivered before! You can gift the e-workbooks and they’ll receive a SUPWISE! YOU’VE BEEN GIFTED! email from us! E-workbooks can be filled out on computer, iPad or printed out!)

GET CRACKING GODDESSES!

CLICK.CLICK.CLICK. UNLESS YOU CAN’T BE BOTHERED HAVING AN AMAZING LIFE + BIZ IN 2015. IF YOU DON’T WANT THAT AT ALL, YOU BETTER NOT CLICK. 

(I kid. I kid. Not really. Maybe. #sorrynotsorry)

To impossible wonderfulness and beyond!

P.S. Guys – I rarely make all out sales pitches these days. I tend to trust that if you are called to working deeper with me, you will.

However… if you’re at ALL interesting in what I have to say… if you give a shit at all about making your life happier or more creative… if you have a business you’d like to grow… then I really have not.a.freaking.clue why you WOULDN’T buy the workbook and bloody well use it.

It’s cheap as chips. It bloody well WORKS (as long as you use it!) And peeps see SO MUCH differences in their lives + businesses as a result.

Honestly – if you’re not willing to invest in this and do it… may I please ask why you’re interested in hearing from me at all?After years of doing this, I know that REAL CHANGE happens when we step up, invest in ourselves and commit to doing the work. Before then, it’s all just a momentary band-aid. I know that can press buttons. I’m sorry. I do. But I need to speak it.

I really want to help you create what you want. I offer the 2015 Create Your Shining Year in Life + Biz Workbook knowing what a difference it makes. It’s got 6 years and 40 000 women and a shit tonne of testimonials and results behind it. I offer it whole of heart and know it can make a real change.

Here in Australia we have a saying – 

SHIT OR GET OFF THE POT.

Either you’re ready to do the work to change your life or biz, or you’re not.

The workbook is here when you’re ready.

xoxoxo

GUYS!

WHAT ON EARTH MADE YOU CLICK ON THAT TITLE?

Book porn?

Oh yeah, book porn.

I can give you book porn.

Bunches of peeps have been asking to see the printed 2015 Create Your Shining Year in Life + Biz workbook + wall planner.

So me + huzzlebunches took some photos.

“Look sultry. No, flex your spiral binding THAT way, bookywooky. Oh yes.”

IMG_2862

So this is how the book arrives when your postman soirees past in tight shorty shorts.

Brown cardboard. Erotik turquoise inkage.

Why hellloooooooo.

IMG_2866

I honestly didn’t know this post was going to be like this.

Now all these photos seem very filled with innuendo…

WHY DO I ALWAYS CROSS THE LINE? WHY IS IT IF THERE IS A LINE TO BE CROSSED I WILL CROSS IT? WHY, IF THERE IS NO LINE TO CROSS, DO I MAKE ONE JUST SO I CAN CROSS IT?

These are the things that keep me awake at night, people.

Well, that and a crying baby.

But mostly the questions.

IMG_2867

Okay, here’s the first page of the book.

One of you rad chicks suggested this page.

I thought it was a tops idea.

Your wish is my command.

IMG_2870

A portion of profits from the workbook go to supporting a range of charities including Doctors Without Borders, Kiva, World Wildlife Fund, World Vision, Red Cross and many more. Philanthropyyyyy foreverrrrrrrr! Heart-soaked abundance really can change the world.

IMG_2875

There’s over 100 pages in the workbook. Thick and luscious.

Packed full of big, good questions that are going to seriously help you get your ducks in a row + your biz + life dreams coming true.

IMG_2892

The workbook is divided into two parts – one concentrating on life goals, and the other on business goals.

(If you don’t have a business, you can just do the life stuff!)

IMG_2878

There’s a kind of magic and wonder to it all. Each question + activity will help you:

  • come to terms with the year that’s just happened
  • mine it for the big lessons + blessings you need to carry forward with
  • let go of the stuff that is too heavy to carry
  • articulate your vision for the coming year
  • work out exactly what your goals are in a HUGE range of areas in your life and business
  • give you an action plan to make sure those goals ACTUALLY COME TRUE.

IMG_2883

IMG_2899

In the Life realm, you’ll be led through the process of creating:

  • Finance goals
  • Health goals
  • Family and friendship goals
  • Home goals
  • Creative goals
  • Ritual Days
  • Dreamboards
  • Word of the Year
  • Creating a Retreat for Yourself
  • an Oracle Card Reading for the year ahead
  • Time Management goals
  • + lots more powerful, joyful tasks that have been proven to make such a difference to creating your dreams + ideal life!

IMG_2880

IMG_2887IMG_2886 IMG_2890

In the Business section, I’m going to be guiding you through exactly what you need to do to create an abundant, joyful business for the year ahead.

This is actually EXACTLY the plan I use in my own business to create a business plan for the year ahead.

It’s literally been worth millions for my company.

This kind of clarity is absolutely bloody ESSENTIAL.

IMG_2894

I’ll guide you through reviewing your current numbers (income, reach, best-selling products etc) in a really fun, simple way.

We have a part-time nanny now. It’s only taken us 4.5 years to realise we actually don’t need to do it all ourselves while going half nutty.

Anywaysies, she’s adorable, and she also owns her own business. I gave her a copy of the workbook and said:

Look, this will probably help.

The next day she said:

I was going through the workbook last night. And I actually wrote down the numbers like you suggested. And – wow – I’ve never done it before. It always seemed to hard. But it was so easy. And now I see everything so clearly!

The power of having clarity in your numbers is that you can work out what’s working, what’s not + where you can mine for even more abundance.

IMG_2895

In the Business section, you’ll be led to setting:

  • Business Mission Statement
  • Income goals
  • Profit goals
  • Social media goals
  • Work/life balance goals
  • Mastermind goals
  • Education goals
  • Customer goals

IMG_2896

SOME NEW WORKBOOK SECTIONS!

IMG_2901

By popular demand, I’ve also included a “What To Do When You Fall Off The Workbook Wagon” checklist.

And remember this post of mine This 1 Tip Can Put You In The Top 1% of Achievers?

Basically, I espoused on the statistics of what goal-setting-and-reviewing habits maketh a woman manifest.

Basically, the top 1% of achievers are those who:

  • think of goals
  • write them down
  • and REGULARLY REVIEW THEM.

The workbook takes care of the first two.

And now it helps you take care of the last one too!

IMG_2904

I created monthly check-in sheets for each month so you can schedule it in your calendar to fill them out at the end of each month to keep you on track with your goals. They are, in a word, FREAKING THE BOMB DOT COM!

IMG_2906

And a new Notes section so you can write to do lists, journal + keep all your 2015 musings in one spot!

In interrupt this post with some “Leonie got distracted and started taking photos of her studio” pictures.

I’m sure you understand.

IMG_2857

IMG_2843

And a sign I’ve got ready to go for the Cairns Business Women’s Club lunch on Friday. How exciting! (If you’re there… let’s play! Talk shit! Be silly buggas!)

IMG_2856

Also: for those who know me and my barefooted ways… and the fact I don’t own any shoes apart from a couple of pairs of flip flops…

YES I DID BUY SHOES TO WEAR TO THIS DOOHICKEY ON FRIDAY.

I bought… sparkly flip flops.

Fully upmarket laydeeee!

IMG_2850

You can tell who lives in and loves this studio.

A rainbow-watercolour-splashing angel-loving hippy.

Aaaaand we’re back!

IMG_2837

This year, the printed workbook comes with a FREE A2 sized year wall planner too! SQUEE!!! I LOVE IT SO MUCH!

IMG_2842 copy

Each month, it lets you fill out your income goals, happiness goals and three most important goals for the months.

Will totes super keep you on track. Hooray!

IMG_2834

I’m fully in love with this lovebeam and am SO HAPPY we got to create it for you as a bonus for the printed workbook this year!

artiste

I am SO infinitely grateful that these workbooks fell into my creative lap six years ago.

Through and through they have changed my life and business, my happiness, income, friendships + relationships… it’s been a deep and dear blessing to feel so much on purpose because of this process of dream-creating and dream-making.

I know the difference these bookywookies make because I’ve seen it in my life… and the now 40 000 women who’ve used them (and turned into rabid fans… I’m just as much a fangirl too..)

How would the world change if every woman in it knew her dreams were possible and doable?

Through and through. That’s how it would.

It would be a better place for our dreams come true.

It would be a miracle.

Questions about the workbooks?

Just email us lovies — support@leoniedawson.com.

Just a reminder – printed workbook supplies for 2015 are limited. Once they run out, we won’t be printing again.

So grab your copy sooner rather than later, babearoonie. And grab a few for soulsister Chrissie presents too.

Giving the gift of dreamscometrue is SO 2015!

To your impossibly brilliant 2015,

we are here

Oh.em.gee.

The moment we’ve all been waiting for…. with baited breath… longing in our loins… fervent pens at our ready… hee hee hee…

The 2015 Create Your Shining Year in Life and Biz workbooks are AT LAST available to order!!!

This is our SIXTH year in producing these wildly popular + powerful goals workbooks.

This year is definitely our biggest and best yet… they’ve been added to… and we’ve taken all your advice/dreams/hopes/wishes and created a beautiful big spiral bound printed book edition that comes with a free A2 wall planner as well!!!!!

2015v2-testimonial-bubbles

The 40 000 women who’ve used these workbooks over the last six years have had some freaking MASSIVE results. I know so many women absolutely swear by them.

Now let me say this: there are a LOT of copycat workbooks/planners out there on the market. You’re most welcome to try them out… but the feedback I’ve received from the many women who have is that they always end up returning back to my workbook because it’s the one that gets the most results.

AVAILABLE IN SCRUMPTIOUS PRINTED BOOKS OR EBOOKS!

Last year I created our first physical print book of the workbook since that was such a popular demand.

It was massively successful and became an Amazon bestseller.

This year, I wanted to make it even bigger and better than what we could produce going through Amazon.

We worked with a printing company in Malaysia instead to produce gorgeous, thick, full-colour spiral bound workbooks that come with a free A2 wall planner for the year. (I will share more about this in a future blog post if you’re interested!)

I’ve tried to make it as affordable as possible for you, and we’ve got books in mailing houses in THREE countries to try and make postage as affordable (& fast) for you as possible.

You can check it all out here.

You can also grab an ebook and either print out on your own or fill out on your computer or iPad (we’ll give you the instructions on how to do it!).

BUY AS CHRISTMAS PRESENTS

gift option 2

You can also buy print or electronic workbooks for Chrissy presents too – these end up being super popular for peeps to give to sisters, soul sisters, friends + clients.

We just had a best-selling author buy 50 of them to give to her staff & coaches which is bloody amazing!

EFFING HUGE AFFILIATE COMPETITION!

We also have our BIGGEST affiliate competition EVA happening! Over $12 000 in prizes!!!!!! Squeeee and wahooodle-ooooo!

Basically, I’m proud as fucking punch.

And a little bit tired.

This has been the biggest project we’ve ever pulled off.

And I can’t be happier with the end result!

May it make 2015 your most brilliant year yet in life + business!

love, love, love

P.S. Just as an FYI: Once the printed books are all sold, I’m not able to re-order them. Once they are gone, they are gone. So if you want one for you and/or to buy for friends or family as a perfect Christmas gift, grab them now.

Hola potatoes,

If you’re an Academy member, you’ll know that the business advice that comes out of my mouth the most is:

Implement
Implement
Implement.

Aka: Do your shit. Do the important stuff. Do what will grow your company. Do it now.

Invest in education but most importantly IMPLEMENT it. And implement it some more.

Education doesn’t do shit if you don’t do something with it.

Just buying education doesn’t grow your biz.

Sorry. I know that you want the magic button of ZING, and it all fixes your business.

Sorry. It’s YOU that’s the key here. YOU that will turn it from knowledge into gold.

Take action notes. Decide exactly what needs to happen. And make it happen.

Don’t dilly dally. Don’t fuck around. Don’t spend all your time on social media.

Do the important shit.

It is these purposeful, intentional steps that make a dream business (and a dream life) grow.

To remind ya, I made ya these desktop wallpapers, an ipod wallpaper and a printable poster.

Rainbow to adorn the space you in.

And keep you on track.
