Calendars and us…

As a traveling gypsy, wandering dancer, bohemian prancer, glamping honkytonker, blogging maven, pleasure siren, creative magical coach and teacher, and everything in between, it is imperative that I work deeply and intimately with my boss...

“Who’s your boss?” you ask. “We always thought you worked for yourself!”

calendarsWeeeellll…I do. My boss is my calendar! Without that tool my mind would be a jumbling swirl of mass chaos! This is such an easy and minor thing to learn, but the most important tool I can use as a successful coach, business woman, and teacher. And of course, this is one of the first things I have my clients look at.

Whether it be an online calendar or a fancy notebook, you find the right tool that works for you! I actually use both. In my yearly planning I have pages spread out all around me so I can see the big picture. I still love the tactile feel of paper and pen, pencil and colored markers. Just like I love to read paper books!  But I am also totally in love with my kindle, for 2 main things. I can take my zillion books with me on the road and not weigh my suitcase down. And I can read at night when my man is sleeping because of the fabulous lit up page, and it is so easy! But give me a beautiful book to look at and read and I’m in heaven. Same for my calendar…if I can see it all spread out around me for the year, I can make my year be a big success and not overcross myself. I can FEEL it, like the energy of my work and what I am planning.

But for my daily and weekly fixins, I love my google calendar because I can pull it up on all my devices wherever I am. And I put all my little to-do’s and my get-er-done things on every day, so I don’t forget anything… and that makes my days and weeks go so much smoother.

Of course I still keep several journals by my side at all times, for work ideas, blogging thoughts, poems as they come through me, and my delightful gratitude lists…

This is lovely organization and creative planning for me, and helps me not sit down in the middle of the room and cry!

My boss! She just tells me what to do and when, and there you go.

That being said, that’s exactly what I’ve been doing this week. I’ve got papers and notebooks strewn around me as I sit on the floor, and I love it. Planning where I’m traveling, what I’m teaching, my client appointment, and most necessary to calendar in my down time, my play time, and my own continuous studies.

So here is the beginning of next years certification agenda for you dancers!

Most of these courses only happen once a year and I want to make sure they suit all of us and our calendars. So now, you get out your colored pens and papers, your calendar, your datebook, and jotting down the workshops you will be joining me at, and see how good that feels! Maybe you even have a special page for dream dates/ bucketlists/wishes and desires–things your really want and will be working toward!

Let me know when we can meet up– ready to do some coaching with me, attend a dance workshop in person, undertake that online certification course you’ve been saving for, and time to advance into one of my teacher trainings. I know it is only August but 2017 looks to be a magnificent year already. Do you feel it? My heart is expanding with delight…

I’ve got some awesome dance tours and festivals lined up for myself and Gypsy Caravan Tribal Bellydance! Here are a few dates for you!
