Happy New Year! Boy, I’ve missed you…

Hello and Happy New Year,

The Kool Auntie is back, and boy have I missed you.  (BIGG HUGS)

It has been such a long time since I’ve written on this forum but I haven’t been very far away (check me out on IG, FB and TWITTER @ElanLifeCoaching  #TheKoolAuntie for daily connections)

With that said, I’M BAAACCKK.

The last two months have been a whirlwind of trainings, coaching, mentoring, et al.   I have spent the end of 2019 working hard to be the best Auntie that I can be and I have been working with others to help them be their best selves.

I am happy to report that I have ended 2019 with a BANG and I am even more excited for what 2021 will bring…Aren’t you?


Contrary to many memes that I have seen, I love seeing all the NEW YEAR NEW ME posts on social media.

I love seeing all of your New Year Resolutions.  I love seeing the diet/exercise plans and the budgeting goals.

Where some people roll their eyes at the thought of people setting these goals, my heart is full when I see people being aware of their needs, their wants and them making a conscious effort toward self-improvement

I have coined 2020 THE YEAR OF CLEAR.

Being clear about what you need and want is key.  Clarity is the first in achieving the life you truly want to live.

I have encouraged my clients to be very clear about what they want to achieve in 2020 and to also become self-aware.

“The first step to getting what you want is to have the courage to get rid of what you don’t.” —Zig Ziglar

It is imperative that you become self-aware of your strengths and weakness. Be very clear about what you want, desire and need

  • Do you need a mentor?
  • Do you need to further your education?
  • Do you need to remove certain people from your life?
  • Do you need to enhance your networking?

Only you know!

Lying to yourself won’t help


As we move into the next 366 days (leap year) I am asking everyone:

  1. To be clear about what you want to achieve
  2. Set S.M.A.R.T. goals (Specific Measurable Actionable Realistic Timely)
  3. Be aware of your needs
  4. Make a list of what you want to stop, start and continue doing
  5. Be courageous
  6. Be consistent

So, get out those journals. Create those vision bards.  Open a new planner.


Go ahead and make those New Year Resolutions.

“Take the first step in faith. You don’t have to see the whole staircase, just take the first step.” – Martin Luther King Jr.

Remember, if for any reason you fall off the wagon. forgiver yourself.  get back up, start over.
