'For more than a year, I have attempted to avoid my phone as soon as I wake up. No matter my evening intentions, this always failed. As soon as I had accountability with this progam, I was able to maintain a mindful morning practise (and continue to do so!) It has helped me profess and understand many emotional experiences. Beyond not looking at my phone, I'm fully into journalling again, and I am finally stretching every day!'
Jess
'The Bungalow 968 Mindful Mornings program has provided a simple and lovely structure from which to start each day.  Although I had a morning meditation practice, I had been wanting to journal more and the daily prompts and daily inspiration has provided the perfect framework to do so; I love how the pen just starts to write once I begin. Thanks for this program!'

'I've been a part of numerous strategic planning sessions and know a skilled facilitator when I work with one, Megan is one of the best. Not only is she incredibly organized, researched and prepared, she is flexible and able to quickly pivot depending on the needs of the room. Her approach is structured, yet full of curiosity. Megan provided clear direction, asked hard questions to draw out our best answers, and supported our team the entire way through. We left our strategic planning session knowing we had a way forward with our newly identified initiatives and were better connected as a team for the experience.’

AIM ACCOUNTABILITY

Monthly-Accountability-Group

Working at home, being a solo-prenuer and all things COVID isolation are all factors that present a challenge when it comes to taking action on your projects, to-do’s and ideas. With no one to answer to, regularly connect with and challenge you when it comes to your deliverables, you find it’s hard to keep focused, you’re letting yourself down, which doesn’t feel great and stalls your progress even more.

Being part of an online accountability group means you have a group of people to report back to each month that you don’t want to let down, as well as a set timeframe to complete your tasks.

The American Society of Training and Development studied accountability and found that people are 65% more likely to reach their goals when they’ve shared them with someone else. Even better, people are 95% more likely to reach their goals when they share them with a group and meet regularly to review them.

Here’s where AIM – Online Accountability comes in!

Like you, we’re busy. We don’t want another hour plus long meeting, Zoom call or appointment in our calendar. Therefore, we’re keeping our cohorts smaller, meetings on point and timed. You’ll still get the benefits of meeting others and connecting as a group, but we’ll keep our meetings focused and on task to ensure you do too.

Who you are:

You are an individual, leader or small business owner who is committed to creating impact in your life, career, business or endeavour. You are passionate and driven and recognize that you need to feel supported and connected to others in what you create.

You know that you can’t do it alone, that being isolated presents many challenges and you need to find a way to keep yourself motivated and accountable to reaching your goals.

You’re committed to maintaining your priorities, but you’re looking for a way to ensure you keep yourself accountable to someone or something to make sure you do what you say you’re going to do.

You have really great intentions, but it’s really hard to be accountable to yourself. Your motivation comes and goes and you feel that having a group to report back to would ensure you successfully complete what you say you’re going to, wouldn’t that feel great?!

You like the connection of a group environment to keep you motivated and inspired. You want to meet others who are in a similar space to you to help spark your creativity and challenge you to keep moving forward.

You need the occasional cheerleader to help provide that extra push to do what you need to do and the acknowledgement and virtual high fives to celebrate when you’ve reached a milestone.

How it Works

You bring your priorities, the group holds you accountable to achieving them.

Our cohorts meet once monthly via Zoom. Participants will be given a set amount of time to share their top 3-monthly to dos and update the group on their progress from the last month.

At the next month’s session, participants will update the group on their progress of their 3-monthly to dos and share with the group their next 3 items they will action to report back on next month.

Each cohort will be a maximum of 7 people to ensure each meeting stays on time and focused. We will be keeping the group members the same throughout each set.

What you need to bring to each session

Your monthly action items – A list of the 3 things that you are choosing to work on for the month.

Commitment – You show up ready to share and have made the commitment to yourself that you will put in your best effort to complete your tasks.

Positivity – No negative Nellies here. You bring optimism, eagerness and openness to each session you attend.

What you can expect

A supportive group environment for you to connect, share your progress, be inspired and have the accountability to a group to report back to monthly on your progress.


CURATING YOUR NEW YEAR

Yearly-PlanningHow would it feel to start off your year with fresh perspective? What if you actually took the time to do some deep reflecting paired with a bit of creating for your year ahead?

What if you could carve out the time to kindly and compassionately look at your challenges and achievements of the last year to celebrate your successes and note the areas that need attention?

What would it feel like to be starting another year with just the right amount of self-reflection and guidance to help shape the path you will create for the coming year? How would it feel to ditch the overwhelm and the feeling like you need to ‘attack’ things? What if we could set specific tasks for you to action your ideas while keeping it simple? BREATHE.

It can look like this. Choose un-hustle. You can choose to move forward with grace and leave the feelings of anxiety, overwhelm and exhaustion behind you. There is time to do the things you love, time for joy and time for fun.

Are you ready to create a simple, action plan and choose ease and flow over hustle, hurry and exhaustion?

Let’s slow down, find out what your true ‘yes’ items are for the coming year, ask the right questions to allow you to really explore what it is that you want to focus on and build a plan for you vs letting months fly by as you get buried in emails, social media posts and putting out the daily fires.

This 1.5 hour, online mini-session delivered via zoom is a pared down version of our larger strategic planning workshop that offers you the space and time to reflect on the past year and plan for the year to come. In the session you will be guided through questions and focused time that will help bring clarity and intention to your year and beyond. We will create a plan that feels sustainable, organized and clear, broken down into manageable chunks for you to action over the course of the year.
