Share Your Story and win a $100 VISA Gift Card!

Hi - it's Tatjana.

I recently shared with you my '2014 In Review'.

But what about you?

How are you acknowledging and celebrating the fruits of your labor?
Over the last 2 years over 450+ women have attended our conferences, programs and workshops.

We want to hear from you!

What has happened for you as a direct involvement? How has your life changed? How has it affected your career? How has it created opportunities for you? How has it impacted other areas of your life?
Sometimes we don’t see how much we have accomplished until we reflect and spell it out, make it conscious.
Some people may cringe when they hear the word “accomplishments”. Traditional definitions of ‘accomplishments’ may limit what it means to you to be successful, and hold you back from truly celebrating your personal and professional growth. Give yourself the permission to create your own definition of what accomplishment might look like for your authentic path.
I’ve created a special framework for you, to help you acknowledge, harvest and celebrate the fruits of your labor since you have attended one or all of the following:
  • The 2013 MERGE!MOVE!FORGE! or 2014 TOGETHER! Conference
  • The TOGETHER! MeetUp for Women (former Skool Meetup for Women)
  • The KNOW YOURSELF programs
  • The Stepping Into Your Feminine Leadership programs
  • The Breaking Through Your Inner Glassceiling program
     
This is an opportunity to appreciate yourself, and celebrate how far you have come in your inner and outer development. Take a moment and allow yourself to reflect.

By sending in your reflections and inspiring success story, you are eligible to win 1 VISA Gift Card in the amount of $100, and be featured on our new website and new landing pages for our programs.


We will select the reflection stories on January 8th, so the reflection survey has to be completed and returned to us by January 7th, 2015.
We truly appreciate you participating in our reflection questionnaire, and thank you for being a part of our programs, conferences and workshops over the past 2 years.
It has been a pleasure working with you! And we are super excited to continue the journey together in 2015!

Cheers,

- Tatjana

2014 In Review

Hi - it's Tatjana.

I've had a an exciting and a challenging year! Yet, the best word to summarize the theme and overall experience of 2014 is

Collaboration

I want to take a moment and extend a special "Thank You" to all of you for either your direct involvement and collaboration with one or multiple undertakings of mine, your support, and or simply your continuous readership. Here is a quick review...

 



TOGETHER! Conference

I co-produced my 4th Women's conference TOGETHER! with two amazing women: Runa Bouius, Corporate Conscious Leadership Consultant, and Rocio Villalobos, Founder of VidroMedia.

Together we had an opportunity to work jointly with other phenomenal individuals and organizations such as Whole Foods Market Venice and Hollywood, WeWork Hollywood, The Skool, Blind Inc., The Conscious Capitalism Chapter Los Angeles, The Working Revolution, EFFI Foods, Groundworks Coffee, The Green Business Networking, NextSpace, Art Center College of Design, AIGA, DSJ Printing, Facilitation Graphics, Epos Inc., Stray Poodle Media, Iclandic Glacial, The Auburn Sky Imaging, Causecast, The Los Angeles User Experience MeetUp, Tribemint, and so many more.

The focus of the TOGETHER! Conference was to foster women's empowerment, development, leadership and entrepreneurial skill-building. The theme was: How to build a Conscious Business.

TOGETHER! MeetUp for Women

Please note: Our monthly MeetUp group has been renamed from "The Skool MeetUp for Women" to new: TOGETHER! MeetUp for Women

Purpose:
Creating a new culture and economic infrastructure amongst women. This group is for women who want to merge their personal and professional experience, and their life and career with a meaningful, purpose-driven and prosperous livelihood while making a profound impact and contribution to our community, our culture and society.


Join a progressive group of women and let's do it together! It's hard to reinvent oneself alone. Together is way more fun!

>> The next meeting will take place on Tuesday, January 27th, 2015 from 7.30 - 9.30pm. Special thanks to our continuous venue sponsor NextSpace in Culver City.

 



CORE UX Facilitation

I absolutely loved the collaboration with Rocio Villalobos, Founder of VidroMedia, where I spearheaded the UX facilitation for new and existing clients of VidroMedia.

What is CORE UX Facilitation?
The CORE UX Strategy was developed by The Skool.
I use it as an easy, fast and efficient strategic planning framework to help creatives, solo entrepreneurs, and business owners create a clear brand and user-oriented strategy to implement their goals, reduce time, money and waste and generate an authentic brand experience for their customers.





>> Need to develop an authentic brand experience, clear user definitions and a roadmap for a new idea, project, or business? Make sure to include me on your team in 2015!

 



KNOW YOURSELF Workshops
Over the last two years I've created a lot of content and launched various workshops for women where I combined personal growth and development practices with UX and Lean StartUp philosophies. My latest workshop was called KNOW YOURSELF, which I taught in Spring and Fall of 2014.
Focus: For women who want to learn a fun and easy process to find clarity, definition, and direction for a meaningful life and career.


Below is a snap shot of testimonials from a few participants:
“Tatjana's course is perfectly designed to introduce you to the power that comes from making time for yourself. It is a meaningful investment that provides the tools you need to start the process of purposefully defining yourself. I learned the role old patterns play in preventing us from expressing our true self. Through constant awareness and recognition - we can break patterns and live life as practice. The most helpful practices were around how to navigate conflict. I now know to be more conscience of what is triggering me to react instead of respond. I will pause to set an intention to deliver a genuine response rather than a damaging reaction”.

  • Rachel Caraviello
    VP, Programs and Services, Affordable Living for the Aging

“Tatjana's workshop is an amazing opportunity for self exploration, awareness, and appreciation. I think any woman, whether she is exploring personal or professional empowerment, will benefit from this workshop as a course in self-empowerment through self realization.
 
  • Hilary Maler
    Associate Marketing Coordinator, Whole Foods Market Southern Pacific Region

     
“Thank you for delivering such an inspiring and empowering course. I looked forward to the weekly introspection, connection, and inspiration, and appreciated the supportive group of like-minded women who were also seeking more clarity, purpose and meaning in their lives. It’s comforting to know that I’m not the only one trying to reinvent myself! The workshop was well-designed, structured, and organized. Your leadership and the weekly course material helped to catalyze inquiry, creativity, and insight. The interactive format provided a nice way to build connections and spark new thoughts and ideas.  I’m always amazed at your ability to listen and hear between the lines. You synthesize what people say and articulate it back in an even more meaningful, enlightening way”.
 
  • Ellen Vash
    Sales & Marketing Representative

>> Stay tuned for a new course to be announced in the New Year!

 


 
Senior Roommate Housing Project

As most of you know, we had a tragic death in our family last November of 2013. As a result I launched the Senior Roommate Housing Project. Did you ever wonder what happened to that?

Well, shortly after I conducted my first workshop in March 2014 to take assessment of our local seniors biggest needs, hopes and desires I published my findings on my blog and newsletter. Shortly after, I got connected with Sherri Akers, a powerful and passionate community activist in Mar Vista. We collaborated on the second workshop and within a short period of time Sherri launched the Mar Vista Community Council - Ad-Hoc Committee Aging in Place.

We meet every third Thursday of the month. We've had five committee meetings and are steadily growing with more people joining to make a difference in our local community.


Mission:
The mission of the Mar Vista Community Council - Aging in Place Ad Hoc Committee (MVCCAIP) is to provide an empowering voice and a network of resources to our diverse community of seniors.

  • Join our Facebook group launched by Sherri Akers HERE
     




 
>> Do you know a senior concerned about independent living? Spread the word and join the January 2015 "Discussion Workshop with other local seniors".

For details see HERE

 


So, that's pretty much it for today. Thank you all for a great 2014! I can't wait to see what new and amazing things will unfold in the New Year. Let's make sure we get to generate something powerful together!

Wishing you all a very happy Holiday Season und einen Guten Rutsch ins Neue Jahr (go google that).
Cheers,

- Tatjana

How to generate a life that excites you?

What does it take to live a life that excites you?


Goals versus Excitement
Do you think it’s about creating more goals? Or is it about creating clarity, definition and a roadmap to consciously and powerfully generate a future that is exciting, one that makes you feel fully alive at the core of your essence?
Well, maybe it’s a combination. I think SELF-MASTERY, SELF-AWARENESS SKILLS and SELF-EMPOWERMENT are not only useful skills to creating a future that excites you, but are great tools to managing & balancing yourself while guiding and inspiring others to infuse a healthy and happy culture at home and / or in your career.


How to bridge the gap between your present and your future?
So how do we do it? How do we develop those skills? How do we generate meaning and purpose and excitement in our life? What’s the process? Is there a step-by-step method to make this whole experience a bit more fun and collaborative versus going through a dreadful and painstaking process to “find yourself”?


Conscious Business
Much of meaning & purpose was discussed at the TOGETHER! Conference that took place last Sept 13 & 14 at WeWork in Hollywood! It was my 4th conference with focus on fostering and promoting women's empowerment, development, leadership and entrepreneurial skill-building. We had an amazing group of motivated professional women who joined us to learn about tomorrow's critical business skills in:

  • Conscious Leadership
  • Conscious Business Structures
  • Go-To-Market Strategies
  • Marketing Practices


If you'd like to see the Conference Agenda check it out HERE. Even though we talked about personal growth and development to a certain degree, the focus with our super inspiring speakers and experts was on “How to build a conscious business”. In other words, how might business represent a platform to experience personal fulfillment, meaning, purpose and profit, while also making a contribution and difference in society?


Let's start with Pillar 1: Define Your True Self
So if you are not ready yet to discuss strategy or execution, do not worry, I have another workshop coming up that specifically focus on creating clarity, confidence, definition, and direction how to create a meaningful and passionate life and career. Not only is this workshop about “You”, but it is a fun and collaborative process you get to engage in with other like-minded women to experience community and mutual support.  


Special Offer to attend the 9-week online KNOW YOURSELF workshop:

2 for 1 Ticket + Early Bird at $395 (Regular $675)
This offer expires on Oct. 7th at 11.30pm!

For details and how to register your ticket click on the button below:

If you want more than just a monotonous and mundane life or career do not miss out on this inspiring and fun workshop with other like-minded women!

Doing it together is way more fun!

- Tatjana
