Crafting Fitness 2.0 :: The Art and Joy of Jumping Rope

This past year, I'd say that the emails I've gotten from readers on the topic of my passion for the jump rope has surpassed any other topic that readers write to me about. 

Indeed, the jump rope has been key for me in terms of my dedication to fitness in this current season of my life. It's a simple tool that can get you into shape if you use it regularly. And I'll explain how I jump ... from A to Z ... in Crafting Fitness 2.0, which you can learn about here.

Announcing :: Crafting Fitness 2.0 :: A NEW Online Class

I'm super excited and thrilled to finally be able to announce my brand NEW online course for the New Year: Crafting Fitness 2.0.
I've been hard at work with my team to get it ready. It will be a 3-week course that begins February 4th where we will share our stories, set our goals, and support one another as we make a commitment to fitness. Along with the Creative Lab group, we will be opening a Facebook group that allows us to stay connected throughout the day for support and accountability.

No matter where you are at in terms of your current fitness level, trust me on this ... we are all in it together in terms of struggles, embarrassments, and most of all, a desire to be fit, healthy, attractive, and confident. There is no such thing as hopeless or impossible. With sincere commitment, everyone can do it.

Enrollment and more details about the class can be found HERE.

Fit. Fun. Real. Happy New Year. :)

Announcing :: Instant Watch :: Online Classes

One thing I know about learning is that there are different ways that people learn. Some people learn best when there are lots of opportunities to interact with teachers and students ... while others prefer to learn quietly, through observation and personal work without necessarily the interaction with teachers and students.

I'm happy to announce that our Creative Lab, where we offer our online classes will now start offering our classes in a new Instant Watch (IW) format ... for those who prefer to view content instantly, and learn quietly, without the interactive component. At this time, two of our online classes are available through our Instant Watch program as follows:

INSTANT WATCH :: The Keys to Publishing & Building Creative Momentum. The high quality content is viewable instantly without the interactive component, to be enjoyed whenever you please, without the content ever being closed.

INSTANT WATCH :: Crafting Fitness. Again, high quality conetnt that is viewable instantly, without the interactive component to be enjoyed whenever you please, without the content ever being closed.

As we move forward with new online classes, we will first launch them with the interactive component, and then once the courses are completed, we will offer them as Instant Watch options. For either option, the first step is to enroll in either the live version or the IW version and also to make sure that you are enrolled in our Creative Lab.

See you in the Creative Lab. :)

NEW Online Class :: The Keys to Publishing & Building Creative Momentum

I'm excited to announce my NEW online class for 2012. It's regarding the topic that I get approached to talk about more than any other topic. The topic of how to get published ... in books, magazines, and online. Every time I delve into these conversations with creative people, there are two truths that I come away with:

  • The nuts and bolts of how to get published ... how to develop a proposal, how to make a pitch, and how to follow up with the details to make it happen ... these nuts and bolts are the easy part.
  • Being clear about the heart of what you want to publish, knowing your intent for wanting to be published, and having the discipline to work on that heart and intent in a committed and consistent basis is the hard part.

In this course, we will examine both the heart of what you want to share with the creative world in terms of what you create, and demystify the process of sharing your work through publications. We will also discuss how to leverage other "spokes of the creative wheel" in terms of teaching, selling, and relationship building to develop and strengthen your overall creative momentum.

We will also learn a dramatic lesson about the process of letting go and coping with worst case scenarios. We'll dig deep, think critically and prepare our strategies in three highly focused weeks of curriculum that will remain available for you to review again and again throughout the entire 2012 in The Creative Lab.

Classes begin January 23rd. Cost is $48. Enrollment is open now right here.

Crafting My Best Life :: Class of 2011

One of the biggest highlights for me in 2010 was developing the curriculum for my very first online class where the founding classmates and I explored together these three questions:

It was a transformative experience for the participants and since that time, many people have requested that the class be opened up and offered again, which is exactly what we are doing today. 

Crafting My Best Life, Class of 2011 is the same quality content that the founding class experienced, being offered to a brand new group of students. The curriculum helps us get real, dig deep, and explore the answers to these questions which are complex and multi-layered. It's a curriculum based on a belief that in order to be the best that we can be, we have to roll up our sleeves, and work hard to deliberately face who we are, and to identify our values, so that we can map out our best life strategies.

I hope you'll join me as we explore topics that will challenge us, get us thinking, and most of all, embrace ways to be our best selves in every facet of our lives. You can enroll for Crafting My Best Life, Class of 2011 right here. Class will begin October 3, 2011. Upon enrollment, each student will receive a FREE kit that includes a CMBL zine ...

And together, we will alter and decorate our best life boxes that look like this ...

See you in class. :)

Giveaway #22: Create Health + Ruffle Apron

For the last several weeks, I've had the pleasure of working with Dr. Shamanie Haneca to help prepare the content that she has developed for her new online class, Create Health. It has been so inspiring for me personally, because the content is top-notch, high-quality, and packed with information. It has renewed my commitment to health and fitness. One of the guests in this online workshop series is the talented Jeanne Oliver:
