A monthly letter from the desk of Sarah Fejfar

My favorite adventure this past month is a tie. The stars aligned (well actually, months of planning paid off) and we got to take a long-anticipated trip to a magical campground in the San Juan Islands over the 4th of July. It’s a gorgeous area with picturesque harbors; and riding the car ferry through those islands was breathtaking; I look forward to going back.

The 2nd half of the tie must be the hike we took lakeside in Coeur ‘d Alene. It’s our 4th summer taking a road trip from Portland to the Midwest, and we found that spot on our 1st summer road trip and return each year. I LOVE seeing new places AND I love collecting up the ones that we want to continue to return to make more magical family memories at… Coeur ‘d Alene is most certainly on that list.

What did you learn last month? Here’s what has my attention:

  1. I’m studying live launches from James Wedmore inside Business by Design, and thoroughly enjoying the process.
  2. I recently hired a video editor and a Kajabi expert and the process taught me that hiring overseas support is easier than I thought it would be and I’m more capable of hiring than I gave myself credit for. It also adds an additional layer of “who needs me on my A game” that I am welcoming in.
  3. Listening to our intuition is always a smart move. I believe there’s a calm knowing inside each of us, that guides us in the right direction (when we listen up!) and I’m working on getting better at recognizing that voice and discerning if my inner (panicked) critic is trying to talk over that voice.

What are you tackling this month? 

Here’s what I’m working on:

  1. Continuing to help a client with the planning for his upcoming client retreat overseas.
  2. Continuing to learn and start implementing the launch strategies I’m learning inside Business by Design.
  3. Enjoying summer in some of my happy places; I wrote you this letter earlier this week from Saint Paul, MN where I lived for 20 years before moving to Portland 4 years ago; and am now sending you this message from Door County, WI where we’ll be spending a few weeks working remotely and also getting a week of vacation in; it’s one of my favorite places and I’m loving it here.

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

I hope this note finds you and your loved ones happy, healthy, and enjoying every ounce of sunshine this summer!

Make it an outstanding rest of July!

Sarah :)
