Four years ago, I did a great exercise from a book called Five Wishes by Gay Hendricks.
In this book, Gay invites you to imagine being on your deathbed and looking back over your life… And, if you considered your life a success, what would you see in it?
Well I found the question to be quite the powerful inquiry…. And four years ago, my answer was a super surprising one for me.
It was clear as day that I would consider my life a success if I was…. A Philanthropist?!
Now, if you know my story… Then you know that at that very time I was hippie/healer/burning man girl making a whopping $600 a month. So that obviously begged the question… How on God’s Green Earth was I going to turn THAT into being a Philanthropist?! (And not the starving activist kind of philanthropist, mind you… What I saw was the kind of philanthropist who made millions of dollars, lived a beautiful life, and now used their time and resources to help others profoundly.)
Well, ours is not to question why or how, right? So I committed to this vision within my heart in that moment… And then a mere 3 weeks later, the Universe led me to my first workshop on Internet Marketing. At that meeting I learned about the power of leveraging my gifts to build my business empire to reach 100′s… So I took the next year learning and preparing, and then launched my brand new business 12 months later.
Cut to… I’m now finishing up my 3rd year in business… And I’m beyond blown away that I’ve worked and grown and stretched myself to create a business that grossed well over $600K this year.
And… I swear that’s not even the best part… Truly. The whole reason I am telling you this story is because of THIS:
I had the most extraordinary experience at my 3-day Ecstatic Wealth Live Event Experience on Dec 3-5th… Unbelievable to me… Myself and my community worked together to raise $25K to adopt a village in Africa for FIVE YEARS.

There’s a village in Africa who will be receiving a school, clean water, and ongoing communal support through an amazing organization called the Unstoppable Foundation. All because I stepped up and out with my gifts to help 100′s of women around the globe to step into their Ecstatic Brands.

And so my deathbed wish is becoming true. Amazing!
Now what if I hadn’t worked and grown and stretched to get 120 people in a room for a live event? And what if I hadn’t took a chance to involve a charitable organization at a rock star event at the W Hotel in Hollywood? Then people who’s lives may be changed in Africa would never have received these opportunities.
I’m so proud of my community! And, this is really how it all works. We have something to offer. People are waiting for our help. And it leads to us doing our part to affect great change in the world.
And so it is.

Ground will break in 2013 in this African Village… How cool is that? And in the meantime, I am taking time to reflect on the fact that I have already begun to make good on my deathbed wish. And it’s only going to get better from here.
I recommend that you take some time to try the Five Wishes Exercise yourself… (It’s a powerful one!) And then…
Here’s to all of us achieving our dreams (& deathbed wishes!) in 2013!
