This week's episode is the last episode of 2018! As usual, I'm reflecting on the last 12 months and everything that I've accomplished throughout the year. 

I start this episode by sharing where I spent this year. My year was split between 5 months in Mexico, 5 months at home, and 2 months in the United States. By the time this episode airs, I'll be on a plane to Mexico to finish off the year exactly where I started it, in Mexico City. 

This year I've felt a lot of accomplishment. I spent the first half of 2018 doing a lot of personal development and working on my money story to allow money to flow into my life and my business. The second half of the year, I worked my tail off to save for my 300 hour YTT that I'll be doing in early 2019. I said "yes" to every project that came my way, and because of that I am looking to find more ease in 2019. My intention moving forward is to work smarter, not harder. 

My other successes for 2018 include releasing 50 new episodes of the podcast, talking to amazing guests from around the world including Jason Crandell, Diane Bruni and Amber Sears. I doubled my podcast downloads, released my signature course, Yoga Business Bootcamp, and grew my private Facebook community, Yoga Business Badasses a ton. I am so grateful for this community, and I couldn't have done any of that without you guys, so thank you for listening and supporting me! 

Finally, I talk about some of my failures and room for improvement in 2019, where the first half of the year is taking me, and more. 

Enjoy!

This week on the podcast I am joined by the co-founder of The Yogis Journal, Matt Kowald. Matt joined me all the way from Ontario, Canada, although you'll hear right away in the podcast that Matt is originally from Australia. 

On this episode of the podcast we talk about where the idea for The Yogis Journal came from and what the process for creating a journal was like. We also talk about creating new, positive habits and how to create habits that will last in the long term, not just the short term. Matt shares how to create a successful morning and evening routine, as well as tips for breaking bad habits that aren't serving you anymore. Finally, Matt talks about the power of a daily journaling habit and how The Yogis Journal can help yoga teachers build a daily journaling habit!

This week on the podcast I am joined by Kara Seymour from Liv Kundalini, who is joining me all the way from Portland, Maine. She is a yoga teacher, a studio owner and a mother. Kara started practicing yoga as a single mom, and after falling in love with the practice she decided to become a yoga teacher. Throughout Kara's journey, she's followed the "winks" from the universe that she's received, which has inspired her to open not one, but two yoga studios. Kara shares what it's been like opening a kundalini yoga studio in a state where there isn't much kundalini yoga practiced, what she's learned through the process, advice for new yoga teachers and more.

Enjoy!
