Curriculum For This Course
Welcome to the Annual Travel Plan
1 Lecture 03:09

In this course you will learn why you would want to create an annual travel plan and what exactly you need to do to create such an amazing plan for the year. 

I scratch my head when I listen to people discuss their vacation plans because almost everyone is missing this one thing.  Once you watch this lesson you will know what that thing is and you will find yourself scratching you head too when you talk to your friends and family from now on.

Great Ideas Part I

Before you can plan your trips for the year, there are several important questions you need to answer first.  For this lesson, give yourself about 20 minutes for each vacation you want to plan.  Take your time and don't rush this.

It is always helpful to create a check list of what you want to pack ahead of time so that when the time comes to actually pack, you don't have to be worried about forgetting something important.

Advanced vacation planning steps
7 Lectures 12:11

In this lesson I want you to indulge a small part of your "type-A" personality but not too much.  You are going to be doing advanced planning but don't go overboard.  Make sure you are jotting things down in your pad or journal for this section so you don't forget what you came up with.

A touch of "type-A" planning

Action Exercise - Itinerary Planning

Great photos just happen...but sometimes a little planning makes more great photos happen.  In this lesson you will develop a loose plan for those "kodak moments."

Let's make a memory

Action Exercise - Photo Moments

Most people never make a "what if" plan for bad weather and injury.  However, these things happen and bad weather doesn't even have to happen at your vacation destination to throw you for a loop.  In this lesson you will have a chance to plan ahead for life's little bumps in the road.

Action Exercise - Reflection
After the trip is over

After each trip there are some thoughts you will want to jot down.  Capturing them while they are fresh in your head will help you make the next trip even better.  Keep these notes with all your planning notes and be sure to go over them as you plan your next trip.  

The trip isn't over until you record your thoughts
3 Lectures 04:41

I love being a “rebel with a cause." My whole life I have “fought the system." I don't believe in doing things the way they've always been done unless you give me a darn good reason why.

Even as a child, I fought my religious upbringing because it made no sense to me why going to a certain building on a certain day and listening to the same words over and over was a good thing. If it doesn't make sense, then don't do it!

That doesn't mean I am without beliefs because I have plenty of those. I just don't believe anyone can tell me the right way or the wrong way to express them.

For example, I believe corporate America was built by men and will be destroyed by men. Women have better things to do than buy in to the rules of the corporation and better aspirations than the corner office.

As women, we have a natural ability to lead, create and nurture. It is in our nature to collaborate and create businesses in which everyone wins and no one loses. I believe in embracing my nature and doing work that I love that helps others in the process.

You will see that my courses are extension of me and my passion for personal expression. I hope you will take the time to find out about my business and join me in designing ideal lifestyles.

A Little Bit About Me

I am a 360-degree coach. I am trained as a health, life and business coach so when I work with you, I can provide you with insightful coaching that takes into account all aspects of your life.

Often, struggles in business are a reflection of struggles at home. When your personal life is out of “whack" you will find it shows up in your business and your health. These three aspects of you – life, health and work – are so closely tied together that improving one area will also improve the other two.

I am also a mother of two, a wife of one, and a chauffeur of many. Like you, I wear multiple hats and juggle responsibilities with making time for myself and staying healthy.
