At my Business Planning events I do a visualisation process where I have people imagine their 90th birthday party… who is there, what they’ve achieved and what they are being celebrated for. This last weekend I went down to Tasmania to celebrate my Grandmother’s 90th birthday. It was so amazing and really got me thinking about legacy.
Here is this wonderful woman surrounded by hers: 4 children, 13 grandchildren, 11 great granchildren and another on the way next May. As I was driving home from the airport I was chatting to my sister Kath, and Greg and commenting on how every single one of them is a pleasure to hang out with. You know how in most families there’s at least one or two you try to avoid? Well put the Pollards together and you have an instant party! (As the photos on Facebook show!). Gran’s legacy really has been to set in motion a group of people who are gifted at leaving others a little happier that when they found them. I’m sure that’s a Pollard thing!
So your legacy may be your family,or your business, or the impact you make in your community. But with 2011 just around the corner it’s worth giving some thought on what you want to be known and celebrated for!
We also had an early Christmas with Mum and Roger as we won’t be in Tassie for Chrissie this year. It’s an exciting one as my sister is pregnant with her first baby. So next year there’ll be the pitter patter of little feet!
Wishing you all the very best for a joy and laughter-filled Christmas, and an exciting start to 2011.
From all of us at Shift we thank you so much for your support, and look forward to continuing to share your journey in the New Year.
May all your dreams come true!
Wow! What a cruise that was! Greg and I spent 6 days cruising from New York to The Bahamas, sipping cocktails, dancing till dawn and hanging out with some of our MDM clients from Australia and our 7 Figure Speaking System clients from the UK.
It’s always so much fun to hang out with our clients and get to know them in a more informal setting. And how much better can you get than cocktails by one of the many pools!
I was a little bit worried that all the cruise food would interfere with my Bridal Bootcamp regime… it’s just one month to the wedding after all! But luckily there was a running track onboard so I managed a few laps first thing and also made great use of the gym… which overlooked the ocean. How scenic can you get?
We’ve literally just stepped onshore so check out my facebook page for some cool photos.
I have to say it wasn’t all play, play, play. Greg and I always use the cruise as a great opportunity to consolidate the past year and re-align ourselves for the upcoming one. We almost had a full team of Shift onboard with Jo H, Hannah, Daniel and Donna also sharing this journey with us to support us in co-creating an amazing year ahead. So watch this space because 2011 is going to rock! We’ve got so many exciting plans in store for you!
This week has been a very family oriented one for me… Friday night was a small engagement party in Hobart with my family-which was LOADS of fun. I’m really close to my family here, and love catching up with all my aunts, uncles and cousins!
Then on Sunday it was my Mum’s 60th birthday. We surprised her with a delightful cruise down the Derwent River to a wonderful venue called Peppermint Bay. As my sisters Kath, Emma and I worked on the speech, we discovered she had packed over 7,200 lunchboxes in her time… WHOA!
The rest of the week was looking at wedding venues for our own Big Day in January. Oh my Lord. I’m in the events industry, but I’m telling you… finding a wedding venue is no mean feat. I’ll let you know how we progress.
It honestly rocks to be able to take some time to spend with family like this though. Make it a mission to create a SUPERLATIVE LIFESTYLE BUSINESS! You’ll never regret it!

This week has been a flurry of activity as I’ve spent most of it with my MDM people here in Sydney.
At the weekend we had the Annie Stoker event which totally rocked! This woman is a magician at shifting mindset, believe me.
And then this week, still on Bondi. we had the Million Dollar Masterclass Acceleration Session. See all the crazy pics from our Mexican Fiesta night…
All the MDM groups have been amazing and this one is no exception, in fact it’s more special than most because it’s the last time we are running the MDM programme. That’s because Greg and I want to focus on our family and a mentor group needs love and nurturing – as do children. So that’s why we’ve spent so long systematizing everything so we can still offer the same content but with less of me. That’s cos I’ll be spending time being a mummy! Although not just yet…
