My December #LifeByDesign List


One of the biggest reasons I decided to seriously pursue coaching and make a business out of it was because I wanted to be able to create the freedom to live my life by design. And not just for me, but for my family! As artists our income, historically, has been so up and down. It's so dependent on our ability to physically be somewhere and perform and it's limited to me and my husband since it's our skill and vision that brings home the bacon.

But when you have a child your capacity to be gone for 16 hours at a time starts to become more and more limited. You can't just drop everything to travel 2 hours for a shoot or book back-to-back gigs on your weekends to make a little more money because now you've got another human to consider. Not to mention that you just want to hang out with him more and more!

So coaching, to me, has always been a way for me to build something that would help our family live by design. Something that would give us the freedom financially to have more time as a family and to be able to do the things we want to do as a family without worrying about having to squeeze in more work or having to put our family last to prioritize our client's last minute needs.

This year we've been able to add a full time income into our family budget because of coaching and with that the freedom to live a little bit more intentionally and by our own rules! To honor that new freedom, I wanted to make sure not to let this, MY FAVORITE TIME OF YEAR, slip by without me enjoying every last sparkling moment! So I made a list of fun "by design" things I want to do this holiday season! May this be the first of many LIFE BY DESIGN seasons to come!

➳ Visting Downtown Disney
Picking out a Christmas tree as a family

The nightly snowfall in Celebration
Baking and decorating our Secret Family Recipe Sugar Cookies

Want to join me in living with more intention this holiday season and living by design? Make a list of the fun holiday things you want to do this season and take pictures of each like a fun, living by design photo journal! Post them on Instagram with the hashtag #DecemberByDesign so we can all follow along with each other's adventures!
