Off the Fence and Saying Goodbye to Women on the Fence

Off the Fence and Saying Goodbye to Women on the Fence

Sometimes, you just know when it’s time for a change. When it’s time to take a new path, shake up your look, or look at life from a new perspective.

Or, in my case, reinvent your brand for a new decade. (Keep reading for the big reveal!)

For me, that moment came in the Winter of 2019 at the Blissdom conference for women’s lifestyle content creators. I used to attend these conferences regularly, back when they were conferences primarily for mom bloggers and the brands that wanted to work with them. It was the perfect event for me to attend as the creator of the Women on the Fence brand. But over the last few years, I had skipped the annual event.

WomenOnTheFence Celebrates Its 10th Blogiversary!

Ten years ago today, I wrote my first blog post. It’s our WomenOnTheFence.com’s 10th BLOGIVERSARY!

How things have changed over the past decade. Growth, evolution, stumbles, triumphs, watching my babies grow. 

Thank you for sticking with me. I am grateful beyond measure.

How my first post went, September 11, 2009:

Media Women Montreal: Time For Some Thank You's!

Media Women Montreal: Time For Some Thank You’s!

I still can’t believe the evening we all shared a few weeks ago.

You know when you see something in your head and then what you see is exactly what you had mapped out in your mind?

Yeah. That happened.

It was magical and our hearts are STILL full. We are beaming with pride and gratitude. Thank you for showing up and bringing your smiles, your openness to learn, your curiosity, and your amazing energy. To these 100 attendees- the energy in the room was palpable.

Thank you to our incredible panelists for sharing so openly and freely and being so accessible. We learned a TON!!!

#GetOffTheFence Challenge Day 7

#GetOffTheFence Challenge Day 7

If you’re just joining us today, my 7-day life coaching challenge/homework has been daily exercises to help get you off the fence in 2018. If you’re late to the game, you can still do the challenge, just start from day 1 on our blog, and proceed daily.

Day  7 – Create your own vision board or dreamboard

Today’s final challenge is an activity! It is called vision boarding or dreamboarding.

WHAT IS A VISION BOARD?

It’s a powerful visualization tool representing your goals and dreams by pictures and inspirational phrases. This is where you actually create visual imagery of what you want it your life on a bristol board or virtual board (I love DreamItAlive.com).

Day 6 – Book yourself at an upcoming networking event

Book yourself at an upcoming event (networking, conference or other, in your city or another). Yes, I’m serious. Commit to being open-minded and getting out there and meeting new people. Meeting new people solely for the purpose of — once you know your goal for the new year, the law of attraction can help you meet random people in random places. But, it’s not so random. You see, once you’re crystal clear about what you want, you will attract those people you need who will help propel you closer to your goals. Yes it’s real, and it’s spectacular. ?

That’s today’s challenge. An interesting one. Oh, The Places You’ll Go!

#GetOffTheFence Challenge Day 5

#GetOffTheFence Challenge Day 5

Day 5 – Write down 3 action plans that you will execute each consecutive week starting January 1st, 2018

These action plans will propel you forward in the goal you selected on Day 2 of our challenge. They will roll out one at a time starting January 1st and will carry you through the first 3 weeks of January. Example, if your goal is to find a new job in the new year, Week 1 action plan: Fix up your CV. Week 2: Research 10 new potential employers. Week 3: Reach out to 5 new potential employers to solidify interviews. You catch the idea.

That’s today’s challenge. It’s a big one.

#GetOffTheFence Challenge Day 4

#GetOffTheFence Challenge Day 4

Day 4: Do one thing out of your comfort zone today

Day 4 – You’re still digesting the 3 blocked areas from yesterday, so while that’s marinading, today is the ‘out of your comfort zone’ challenge day!

Your homework is simple yet challenging: Do one thing out of your comfort zone today. It can be something as simple as going to a yoga class this afternoon if you’ve never done yoga, to something bigger. Something perhaps you’ve wanted to do, but have been putting off. In the words of NIKE, Just Do It. I encourage you to Google activities out of your comfort zone if you can’t think of any. Going out of our comfort zone challenges and awakens you in more ways than you can imagine.

That’s today’s challenge. It’s a FUN one!

#GetOffTheFence Challenge Day 3

#GetOffTheFence Challenge Day 3

Day 3 – You’ve narrowed things down to ONE goal to focus on for the New Year. Today, write down 3 things blocking you from attaining your goal. Expand as much as possible. Doing this will help bring the situation to life- and actually, perhaps, you might realize you are not as stuck as you think. When you write about the blocks, that begins the unblocking process.

Examine belief systems holding you back from achieving your goal. Things like “I’m not good enough. Unlovable. Not deserving…”

When we awaken ourselves to what is blocking our path, we begin to build a roadmap through.
