December Recap


Happy New Year Team Moxie!

I have been doing a lot of reflecting on the past year and I cannot even begin to tell you how happy it makes me that I have this little accessories company in my life. Never in a million years would I have thought I would be writing you this 3+ years later but here I am! I have stuck with it through good times and the bad - (I can't even tell you how many events I sat at for hours without talking to a soul!) I am so happy I did not give up because if I did I would never have met most of you! Yes, my business finally took on a new life this year which I am ecstatic about but working with and getting to know all of you is truly what keeps me going each and every day! So with that, I thank you! Thank you for joining me on the journey and thank you for not giving up! I promise, as I speak from experience, if you just keep moving the needle forward, you to will reach the goals you set for yourself and you will be successful in this business - and remember, only you can define what success means to you!

Watch out 2014!

Why Set Goals?

By Lorin Beller Blake

It’s that time of year, goal-setting time. Let’s start by addressing why goal setting is so important:

1. Goal setting builds self-confidence! This is a big reason why we should set goals and it’s also the excuse as why people don’t like to set goals.

2. Goal setting gives us a sense of accomplishment. You know when you put a goal on the table, and meet it…it feels so good.

3. Goal setting perpetuates more activity. When we set a goal and accomplish it, oftentimes it generates energy to do more.

4. Goal setting moves us. Setting and achieving goals keeps us moving.

5. Goal setting makes us happy. Research has shown that those with written goals are happier.

6. Goal setting creates success, one step at a time. Most of us have a vision, and by writing down your goals and working toward them, you make that vision a reality!

7. Goal setting creates a BUZZ! Everyone wants to work with the "hot, buzzing" company in town, right?

I’ve been setting goals for my business and myself for more than 20 years. In 2002, I started doing it in a unique and powerful way. What I’ve learned by doing this each year and watching others do it, is that the process itself is inspiring. The stories at the end of each year are magical.

Have I convinced you that this year it’s time to write down your goals or do it in a different, more powerful way? I hope so! Here are some steps to make it easier:

Step 1: Be sure your vision is written.

Step 2: Look at your life in categories, but the whole picture of your life. At Big Fish Nation, we divide our lives into eight categories: Personal/Spiritual Growth, Health, Business/Career, Money, Significant other, Family and Friends, Recreation, and Environment.

Step 3: Be sure your goals are measurable.

Step 4: Set intentions for each of the eight areas noted above. Intentions are the way we need to be to make that goal happen.

Step 5: Be sure your goals are written down.
