Happy New Year, and thank you. - Sage B. Hobbs

Wow, how life can change in a year!

This time last year, I had a 4 year old and an 8 month old and I was standing on the edge of jumping into entrepreneurship.  My husband was lovingly (and patiently) supporting me, while quietly panicking a bit about whether the dreamer side of my personality was going to turn our lives upside down.   He held on for the ride and trusted I would strike a balance between the rule-follower and the rebel that I am.  Phew.  The result has been much more balance and joy in my life (and thus our family’s), and renewed inspiration to make a difference in the world.

So, thank you all a million times over for embarking on this adventure with me.  Living a badass + brilliant life takes courage and commitment.  It takes a belief that you can create a life and career on your own terms.  It takes a desire to own your greatness, and a willingness to share it with the world.

I don’t have a video for you this week, as I’ve been taking time to enjoy my huge and wonderful family this season. BUT, not to worry, if you are looking for inspiration or humor to catapult you into 2015, here are some of my most popular articles so far.  Or, perhaps you’re just procrastinating.  Either way, I hope you enjoy!

  1. Want to feel happy? Forgiveness is key.

  2. Be a conflict superstar: make peace with an upset client, lover, or friend

  3. Ambition and balance: Can you have both?

There is so much more I am cooking up for 2015. I’m creating new offerings that will support women in unleashing their inner badass + brilliance.  I’m playing with many ways to explore my creativity and share my heart.  I’m reading, learning, writing, and growing every day on my own badass + brilliant path, right along with you.

Can’t wait to share it all with you!  Let’s have an extraordinary year, shall we?  Let’s explore and have fun and be open to new possibilities.  

If you haven’t set some clear goals, visions, desires for next year, it’s not too late!  Try to make it fun, and not too significant.  I know that can be easier said than done, but as I’ve said before, it really is more likely to get done if it’s fun.  Here’s the article on clearing out the old and creating the new, in case you want some strategies to get you going.

As always, it means so much to me to have this Badass + Brilliant community all over the world.   I wish you a happy, healthy, and kick-ass new year.

Keep being Badass + Brilliant.  You are change agents.  The world needs you.

Game on!
