An Early Christmas Wish List

by Carol Hess on November 28, 2012

Dear Santa, 

I know it’s a bit early to be sending you my Christmas wish list, but I wanted to get in ahead of the rush.  Here’s what I would like to find under my tree this year. 


  • An acknowledgment and celebration of my accomplishments and what worked well for me in 2012
  • An acceptance and release of what didn’t work so well so I’ve got a clean slate for 2013
  • A crystal clear vision for 2013 and a plan for making that vision happen that doesn’t overwhelm and scare the crap out of me
  • A bucket of inspiration because the vision and plan reflect my deepest held values and core desires
  • Another bucket full of AWE – Alignment, Wisdom, and Empowerment
  • A community of like-minded women who want the same thing – and could they please be fun, nice, and just a little bit naughty?  (I figure you’ve got the naughty/nice thing down pat, right?) 

I’ve got a question for you, Big Guy.  Do you really exist?  And is it true we are going through a huge transformational shift?  Is that why I’m feeling like I need to do something special this year?

Thank you, Santa.  My regards to the North Pole gang. 

Love, Carol


Dear Carol, 

Yes, Carol, there is a Santa Claus.  And, yes, we are going through a transformational shift.  And, yes, that’s probably why you want what you want right now. 

And that’s also why I’m giving you everything you asked for plus more.  Ho, ho, ho! 

Here’s what else I’m putting in your stocking –

  • An end-of-year program that’s fun, different, unoverwhelming and doable (even during the holidays)
  • A toolkit full of ideas, exercises, lessons, and templates
  • A practical self-care plan that inspires you
  • A cool guidebook and 2013 calendar
  • A bunch of terrific guest experts
  • Two wise women you already love and admire to guide you 

Lots and lots of great stuff, right?  Here’s where to go to pick it up.   

Reset. Revive. Restart

It starts December 1st.  So hurry up and sign up today! If you type in STARPOLISHER for the coupon code, you will save $10!  The discount is good until December 8th.  Ho, ho, ho! 

Love, The Big Guy in the Red Suit

(Sandi Amorim and Cigdem Kobu are offering this program, and I am so excited I’m going to be part of it. I’m guessing it’s going to turn into one of those yearly traditions that is so inspirational and so fun and so damned practical that we’re going to wonder what on earth we did without it.  I think you’re going to want to get in on the ground floor of this while the getting is good.  And don’t forget!  If you type in STARPOLISHER for the coupon code, you’ll save yourself $10!)
