Exactly one year ago today, I woke up in an absolute panic. For many reasons, but one of them being I couldn’t pay my rent. I had $700 to my name. And my parents had just written me a check for $1000 to “get me by.” Which embarrassed me. Humbled me. And scared me.
I had stopped doing one on one coaching so I could build this little thing called “The Wildheart Revolution,” which at the time was a semi-vague idea of an online space where people could go to get the help they need, in ANY area of their life, at ANY time of the day, at a price ANYONE could afford.
I had never done anything like it before. And more than that, nothing like it had been done before by anyone. Not in the way I envisioned it.
I didn’t have a roadmap. I didn’t have any clue if it was going to “work” or if anyone was going to want to be involved in it. All I had was a vision, a dream, and this guiding light saying “YES. THIS.”
And so I woke up in my bed, that morning one year ago with anxiety in my chest. Tears. I was afraid to open my computer. Afraid that the email I had just sent about Wildheart had fallen on deaf ears. Afraid that no one would “come to my party.” Afraid that I didn’t know what I was doing and this thing called Wildheart would fall apart and crash and burn.
But as the day went on, the member numbers grew. 5. 10. 20. 40. 60. And beyond. The energy buzzed. Tears rolled down my face. I couldn’t believe that it had worked. That people wanted in.
I celebrated and laughed and cried and watched in awe as amazing person after amazing person entered into the wild ride of the Wildheart Revolution, not having had any clue what the damn thing was all about. But with a feeling inside that just said “YES. THIS.”
As I look back on this past year, I see a year of change. Transition. Growth. Learning. Beauty. Vulnerability.
My entire life is different. What started out as an idea is now a sacred and special place where people are sharing their dreams and their hearts and really showing up and making changes in their lives in a real way.
We now have a brilliant team of Wildheart coaches (Natalie Vartanian and Ellen Ercolini) who coach on business and love and tarot and support the group.
We have subgroups (book club, meditation club, moms club). Community run activities like the Weekly Roundup (an email with all the details from the previous week’s Wildheart happenings), and accountability thread.
We have guest coaches. We have a Wildheart Montana Retreat coming up.
My life couldn’t be more different. All because of Wildheart.
It’s not an 8 week program that will solve whatever problem you have. But it is a place that if you let it, will change your life forever in a really deep way.
I’ve seen people build businesses. Fall in love. Travel the world. Decide to have a second baby. Change lifelong patterns. Switch careers.
But mostly I’ve seen hearts on fire. Souls ablaze. Honesty and truth and vulnerability in a way I haven’t seen anywhere else.
And THIS, more than the numbers, more than anything, is what I’m most proud of.
One year ago, it was me in my bed, alone, afraid, scared.
Today I’m so excited for what’s on the horizon for Wildheart. For what’s on the horizon for all the members.
Things are changing in a major way with Wildheart. There is so much going on behind the scenes that I can’t wait to tell you about.
But for now…Wildheart remains an intimate family. And I want to keep it that way.
So much can happen in one year if you let it. Your visions can become realities. That habit you’ve had forever can change. You can have that dream life you imagine for yourself. You CAN do it.
But you probably can’t do it all alone. And what better way to work on it then in a group of people just like you, with a team of coaches who are hell bent on helping you get where you want to go. And that’s where Wildheart comes in. All you have to do is show up.
I wasn’t planning on doing this today but I woke up and felt inspired to.
I want to offer you a discounted Wildheart membership. $100 off anniversary special. And if you sign up for a year membership I will throw in a free 30 minute 1:1 coaching session to kick off your amazing year of change ($150 value). OR…a super special signature series Wildheart bracelet. Your choice.
Anything is possible if you get clear on what you want and take consistent action in the direction of your dreams. Yes…it’ll be scary. Yes…you’ll feel like you can’t do it. Yes…you will come up against roadblock after roadblock. But that is all normal. Come hang out with us in Wildheart as we’re all this same journey. Working through it together.
If you’ve been wondering how on earth to get from where you are now, to where you want to be, this is your sign. If you’ve been a crumpled pile of tears on the floor for the past 6 months wondering how you’ll ever survive what just happened (like me), this is your chance.
If any of this resonates with you at all, come on over to the site and see what Wildheart is all about and grab your spot. Offer only good til Monday. Please let me know if you have ANY questions at all (I’m serious!).
Happy birthday to us all! Let’s make this year the best one ever.
Eating birthday cake as we speak,
P.s. Even if you don’t join Wildheart, why not give yourself a year goal? One thing I love to do is write my future self a letter, one year in the future, saying where I want to be in one year. You can do that by going to www.futureme.org.
P.p.s. I’m happy to say that I never cashed my parent’s check. And I have no problem paying rent now. :)
P.p.p.s. If you’re already a Wildheart member and you want to “re-up” with the yearly anniversary deal of the bracelet or session just let me know and we’ll get you sorted!
