A monthly letter from the desk of Sarah Fejfar

Hey there,

We’re back in Oregon after four weeks away and enjoying our first taste of an Oregon summer after living here for almost three years!  We’ve got lots of “new to us” summer adventures planned for our family this month which I’m excited about and I hope you do too (yay for novelty!)

But I have to say, one of my favorite Oregon adventures of all time happened last month. We walked a section of beach in Cannon Beach that we hadn’t travelled before (because it entails walking through a river to get there.)  Taking the risk was 100% worth it to experience new terrain (sand dunes and lava rocks to climb) and less crowds.  Gorgeous. 

I think that’s what I love about living here the most is that there’s seemingly no end to the options for adventure.

With all that said, welcome to August!

What did you learn last month?

Here’s a quick recap of my favorite aha’s:

  1. Know Thy Self: I’m just scratching the surface, but this is fun! I took three personality assessments last month (Kolbe, Strengths Finder, Myers-Briggs) and one of my coaches explained my results to me.  It was fascinating! I’ve taken assessments before but never had a trained professional explain them to me so that the results were more than just words and numbers on a page.  What a gift to get to know me better.

  2. Binge Travel vs. Mini-Retirements: I’m rereading parts of The 4-Hour Work Week by Tim Ferris and have been thinking a lot about lifestyle design and the concept of taking “mini-retirements,” essentially vacations long enough to allow for time to get immersed in culture and community vs. the traditional long weekend / week-long hotel-based vacation.  The last three summers we’ve taken a long (working) road trip and I think we’re starting to hone in on what the ideal trip looks like and a “mini-retirement” is definitely part of that trip – we’ve found 4 weeks is the ideal amount of time we want to spend in one of our favorite places each summer – Door County, WI.

  3. How to Be the Best Parent I Can Be: I’ve been receiving coaching from my psychologist and my kiddo’s psychologist on how to level up my parenting skills and I love the feedback and opportunities to hone my skills.  Sometimes reading it in a book and “on the job skill acquisition” isn’t enough, and 1:1 coaching is where it’s at!

What are you working on this month?

Between client event work and playing hard in Oregon with my kiddo before school starts next month (all my fingers and toes are crossed that it’ll be in person) I’ve decided to stay laser-focused on just ONE project this month:

  1. Completing my live webinar funnel for Live Event Academy. I’m thrilled with my progress in July and intend to finish this month. Yay for progress! And yay for automation, it’s fun! (Seriously! 😊)

And there you have it, my August update for you.  Just thought I’d share and keep in contact.

I hope this note finds you and your loved ones happy and healthy.

Make it an outstanding August!
