Not quite a year ago, I came across a course called Make Sh*t Happen. The details of how I stumbled across the online course that changed my life, are still a bit fuzzy. But I remember seeing the website about it and the course’s leader, Jenny Blake, and I immediately grabbed up one of the last spots. It was fate, or so I like to think, as that one small decision literally shaped my life in a bigger way than I ever imagined.
At the time, I had just completed my coaching certification and was trying to figure out what to do next… get a job, work on my own business, do something. And I just couldn’t find my way, and even worse, I couldn’t find my motivation. I wasn’t even sure what the course was about, but the title spoke to me. Jenny, spoke to me. I just had to see what it was all about. And so, I became one of the very lucky people to be part of the inaugural Make Sh*t Happen class.
Without any expectations going in, I was a bit skeptical (as we all know I can be), but was ready to see what kind of guidance this course could provide. And I was hooked by the introduction. Jenny’s enthusiasm (and nerves) in her welcome video, connected me with her mission in a way I never expected. She was truly there to help guide ME in finding my way. She wanted me to succeed. And she kept saying things that I was certain, was the craziness in my head. 😉 And she then made me declare what my one, big, hairiest, scariest goal is – and I would make it happen by the end of the 10 weeks. Wait… what? I had to share my inner most secret goal with people… online… who I didn’t know? Holy crapoly Batman!
It took me a few days to ponder, but when I did finally get around to posting my goal online, it was received with many cheers and support. And that support, to this day, has pushed me forward and was the biggest takeaway I received.
My big, scary, harry goal was… Write a book. I’m not sh*tting you. That was my innermost deepest desire at the time. Sitting here looking back, I am astounded. I didn’t think that I had made a lot of progress while I was going through the course. I did the work, I read the book, I hammered out the exercises, I participated in my accountability groups, but I didn’t think that I was actually “conquering” my goal day in and day out. But I learned HOW to.
And on Tuesday, my first book will be launched – Stop Hating Your Job: How to Be Happy at Work without Quitting.
Make Sh*t Happen (MSH) was truly life-changing. My biggest fans and supporters I have met through MSH – and together, we have continued to grow and conquer (our little part of) the world. I now have friends who are doing exactly what I am – even if their own goal is something different. We are still moving forward, together and supporting each other. They are the coolest and most inspirational group of people I have ever come across, and they are my support team! And guess what – you can be a part of it too!
Jenny has opened a new class beginning in August, but there are a limited number of people (and it’s already filling up). Below is a brief overview of the course, but here’s how I would sum it up. If you are thinking about doing anything, going after a dream – big or small, move past analysis paralysis, then you can’t afford to miss this amazing opportunity. It will open doors for you – both in your own mind of what’s possible and with the community around you. And if you are on the fence, or trying to decide if this is the right course for you, let me know – I’d be happy to chat with you about it.
And I believe it in so much, that here’s what I’d like to add on, in addition to the amazingness that Jenny is providing. If you sign-up for the course, you’ll get the following fun gifts from me, for free (you’ll need to email Jenny and me letting us know to be sure to collect your freebies):
- My new book!
- Resume critique
- One 45 minute coaching session from me
More about MSH (from Jenny):
After running this course twice, I can undoubtedly say that it works if you’re willing to put in the time and effort. Our 60+ alumni have started businesses, built blogs, gotten knee-deep in writing books, quit their jobs, and one even lost 60 pounds! Beyond all the surface-level stats, we’ve created an incredible community that loves, supports and encourages each other at every step.
- There are only 50 spots open, available on a first-come first-serve basis.
- You’ll receive 10 weeks of guided content: weekly videos, 5 live group Q&A calls with me, 100+ pages of reading material, reflection exercises, and group discussion prompts. You will also be assigned to a triad of three people to help you reflect on your progress and hold you accountable week-by-week.
- The course starts the first week of August and will complete in September. Enrollment ends on Sunday, July 29 or once the 50 spots are taken (whichever comes first).
- Each participant will receive a private 30-minute 1:1 coaching session with me (this alone would normally cost $250).
