SO --- YOU'VE GOT A BIG IDEA.
It’s specific. It’s bold. It’s outrageous. It both terrifies you and excites you. Terrexcitifying I call it.
You are torn between telling everyone about it and no one at all because it seems too crazy.
Maybe you want to….
…take a giant professional leap, quit your job and start a movement to support young women.
…no longer be defined by your divorce or previous trauma and are ready to look FORWARD, creating something driven by your own ideas and contributions.
…open a branch of your law practice to serve the community of your new town.
…become a Senator.
…spearhead a new student well-being initiative on your college campus.
…start a new career as a Real Estate agent.
…build a movement promoting women's health and strength
…change the corporate conversation around global warming
…leave your kids home for three weeks and hike the El Camino in Spain with your partner
…turn your upstairs loft in to a yoga studio and women's wellness center
…sell all of your things, quit your job and travel around the world (a la Eat, Pray, Love)
YOU'RE LIKELY CAUGHT IN BETWEEN THREE TRUE THINGS:
-- Doing it is a risk. It could unsettle your whole life, change everything, fail miserably, burn you out and be a huge embarrassment.
-- You simply can't NOT do it anymore. If you don’t do it, you are going to die inside. The status quo is slowly killing you. It has gone from a “could” to a “must” for you and is as if you’re being pulled to do it!
-- You need to decide soon. If you don’t decide whether to do it or not, it may make you crazy.
SO YOU EITHER DIE, GO CRAZY, OR TAKE A BIG RISK.
“And the day came when the risk to remain tight in a bud was more painful than the risk it took to blossom.”
― Anaïs Nin
If you’re reading this page, then you’re finally seeing that taking a big risk is the only path forward.
But you don’t want to take those kinds of risks alone.
Your family doesn’t get it.
You can’t keep talking to your friends about it.
Your partner can only handle so many conversations about it.
So, who do you talk to? Who can help you actually make this happen?
You need a co-conspirator, encourager, cheerleader, someone to confide in and be mentored by as you take on the impossible.
And that’s where I might come in.
I help driven women like you to create the proudest moment of their life (permanent bragging rights) by achieving their terrexcitfying dreams. I make it my business to help you take action on your big ideas without losing yourself along the way.
“You’ve got a big crazy beautiful idea and haven’t a clue how to make it happen, and so far sitting with your journal trying to make it happen for way too long hasn’t worked. Enter Allegra. If it’s time to just get this done and happening, you might really want her in the wings.”
WE COULD BE A GOOD FIT IF...
...you’re a driven woman with a big, bold idea for a project or life decision you want to take on (or have already started). This could be a personal project or professional leap.
...you’re committed to personal growth and ready for the next level: You want to use your big idea as a doorway into your internal world. Part of why you are drawn to taking action on your vision is because of who you will become along the way.
...you’re hungry to learn and curious about your own patterns. You find yourself wondering, ‘Why do I keep doing that?’. Your relationship to your thinking and feelings and have already started on a journey of self-awareness. You are reflective and an active participant in your own learning.
....you’re willing to invest in yourself. The idea of spending your time, energy and money on yourself, your vision, and your own growth is one you embrace.
...you want to be more calm. You’ve DONE big things from a place of being overwhelmed and don’t want to do that anymore. You want to tackle this new project without losing yourself to it, without burning out.
...you’re willing to try new things, to dive in, to stay in the conversation, stay in the game, and to be challenged.
HERE’S MY TAKE ON MAKING YOUR BIG IDEA HAPPEN...
I believe that, whatever your big idea, you’ll achieve it better if you approach it with clarity, calm, centeredness and less overwhelm. Just like driving a car, if you want to go faster then you need to change gears to a higher gear which means that, temporarily, you need to learn how to slow down so that you can speed up. Pushing the gas pedal harder in first gear is not the answer.
I believe that we need to stop strangling and forcing your idea to life and instead give it space to breath.
I believe that there’s a different way to get your work done, one that feels relaxed and spacious, and without all of the over-ing.
AS A COACH I USE THREE POWERFUL TOOLS:
A mirror, a flashlight, and a set of pompoms. At any given moment in a coaching partnership I am an enthusiasm fueler, lead spelunker, cheerleader, tent-pole holder, master brainstormer, space creator, deep listener, expedition leader, sherpa, and partner-in-crime. My work is rooted in the transformative intersection between Vision and Self-Awareness.
