Hello mates! How’s the yr going up to now? 😉 The children are again in school this week, I’m again into instructing and coaching shoppers, and it’s FREEZING right here. It’s like hastily Tucson acquired the memo that it’s winter. The previous week was completely beautiful, with a lot of time outdoors (earlier than it changed into an arctic tundra), sleeping in, and get-togethers with mates. It feels good to get again right into a routine however man, all of us beloved winter break. 

For in the present day’s submit, I assumed I’d do a recap of the previous yr and share a few of my targets for 2022. I at all times love speaking about targets and sharing my private ones on this house. It’s good to have slightly accountability on the market, and I at all times love to listen to about what you’re seeking to obtain, too. Please chime in with any insights from this previous yr and what you’re engaged on for 2022! I’d like to cheer ya on.

So I chatted about this within the podcast, however in some methods 2021 felt simply as onerous as 2020. It flew by in a blur and parts of the yr shrouded in uncertainty, worry, frustration, and plenty of powerful and sophisticated feelings. In different methods, it felt so significantly better than 2020. 

I’m specializing in the nice spots of this previous yr (certainly one of my fundamental targets this yr is to emphasise gratitude!) and listed here are among the highlights:

We acquired Maisey! This canine is only a furry ray of sunshine. She’s a real dog-dog (loves fetch, toys, walks, water play, bones) and at all times has tons of snuggles and kisses for everybody. She such a wise and snuggly lady, and we’re all obsessed along with her. Maisey has been an enormous vibrant spot in 2021, particularly since I used to be so heartbroken over dropping Bella. (I nonetheless take into consideration that tremendous lady each.single.day)

We acquired to journey to fairly a couple of enjoyable locations with family and friends. We did Disney World twice, Sedona, Las Vegas, Austin, San Diego, and small staycation kind journeys to Scottsdale. (The ladies LOVE Nice Wolf Lodge.) I hope that journey is one other theme this yr as a result of it’s certainly one of my very favourite issues.

We additionally completed our pool, which was a HUGE venture. They did an unimaginable job and I’m already trying ahead spring and summer time pool days.

I really feel like we actually discovered our tribe right here in Tucson. We have now such an incredible group of mates which are extra like household, and I really feel so blessed to have the ability to hang around with so many individuals we love. The ladies have such fantastic mates – the kindest, most supportive, and humorous little crew – and we’re fortunate that their dad and mom are additionally fairly cool 😉 I additionally really feel grateful every single day that we get to stay right here in Tucson the place a lot of our household is situated! Our household weekly taco nights are a few of my favourite recollections from 2021. 

Well being-wise (knock on wooden), 2021 was a great yr. Instructing-wise, it felt so nice to get again to main in-person lessons. Lastly, for me, I’ve been specializing in my energy coaching cut up with heavy weights and Match Workforce exercises.

On the skilled entrance, all the pieces felt like a scramble this yr. The yr glided by SO rapidly and I usually discovered myself eager to do all of the issues however not having sufficient time. Regardless of it feeling like a difficult yr professionally, I beat 2021’s income and development numbers, continued to hit Senior Director with Beautycounter (an enormous milestone within the firm), grew our Match Workforce neighborhood by 350%, and really feel happy with the content material I created over this previous yr. I additionally produced and launched Barre Bootcamp 2.0.

Right here’s how all the pieces was distributed for 2021:

It was fairly insightful to have a look at end-of-the-year numbers, notably when it got here to affiliate earnings (one thing I do for enjoyable and simply share issues I genuinely love) and Beautycounter. I really feel like I didn’t have the bandwidth to dedicate as a lot to BC this yr, however I LOVE our merchandise, mission, and our staff, so it’s positively one thing I’ll specializing in going ahead.
