Welcome to Day 18 of the Holiday Challenge!

Today’s Featured Mentor – Kavita Patel

Welcome to 2016 and our first day of the year together! Today’s interview is the perfect way to set the tone for a successful year ahead because it highlights one of the cornerstones of self care: knowing how to receive.

Today’s featured mentor will help with that. She is relationship expert and love coach, Kavita Patel.

As strong, independent women we’re often great at giving. But there’s a shadow side to that. We can get so focused on giving that we forget to receive. This can be especially true for women who choose professions that involve nurturing and caring roles, like life coaches. That’s why today’s interview is so important.

Kavita’s work has been featured Women’s Health, CBS News, Fox News, and The Huffington Post (among others). She is also a featured mentor inside my full-length signature coach training program, Mentor Masterclass.

In the full-length course, Kavita teaches conversation models that empower us to have more compassion. These models help us open our hearts when we’re communicating, rather than keep ourselves protected or in resistance. Communicating from a place of compassion and connection is such an important part of being in service to our clients.

Happy New Year!

Also follow me on Instagram @RSVPwJey. This is the best place to make sure I personally see what you post.

We’re tracking tags and shares, so the more you play, the more chances you have to win.

3. Reflect & Renew

Here is today’s question for reflection:

Take a few minutes to imagine a restored sense of balance. Lean in to what it would feel like if you let yourself receive as much as you give.

Spend a few minutes writing down what comes to mind.

4. Sign Up for the Holiday Challenge [Live] Sisterhood Call

It’s our special, live, wrap-up call to celebrate the sisterhood, personal growth, and self care rituals you’ve experienced during the challenge.

You’ll discover the power of starting your New Year with a new theme, as I guide you through an easy meditation to choose your theme for the year (we’ll do this live, during the call!).

Plus, I’ll show you how to build on what you’ve already started practicing in the Challenge, so you can start and grow your coaching business, based on self care. In other words, I’ll share a sneak peek inside my signature coach training program, Mentor Masterclass, and show you the exact process I teach inside the course. When you learn this 4-step process, you’ll have a deeper understanding of how to use self care as the foundation to start and grow your coaching business.

We’ll also announce the prize winners, the Mentor Masterclass virtual self-study scholarship winner, and the winner of the scholarship to my full-length Mentor Masterclass signature program. Learn more and sign up here.

Click here to download Chapter 2

The next chapter will be available tomorrow, Saturday, January 2.

NOTE: The chapter guides are provided in .docx, you may edit this document by typing directly into it using Word, or choose to save your reflections/answers in another format [i.e., Pages, notepad] that works for you.

Each chapter contains the questions for videos you’ve already watched during the week, to help reinforce and review what you’ve learned. This means you will need to keep track of your progress during the week using a regular Word or Pages document (or a written journal). Then simply follow the instructions inside the workbook when you receive it.

The workbook is also your scholarship application. To be considered for the full scholarship, follow the instructions inside the workbook.

We’ll choose a scholarship winner and announce her name during the live wrap-up call in January.

Yours in sisterhood,


Have friends or family who would like to join us?

Invite them to the Live Power of Themes Call on January 7, 2016.

Three years ago I discovered a new way to start the New Year. Since then, I’ve turned it into a powerful annual ritual that has changed my life.  

Every time I do this ritual, I open myself up to experience my divine Soul purpose in magical ways.  

I’m continually amazed when I go through the short and easy process because it can change everything about the way we see and respond to events in our lives.

Now I want to share that same experience with you.  Join me here
