Show Notes:

This month’s theme is: Summer like a rebel.

We are officially into JUNE 2019, which means for most of us in the US, we are shifting hard into Summer mode. In last week’s episode I talked a lot about the energy shifts that happen naturally to us throughout the year, and for most of the folks I know, Summertime is a sticky sweet mixture of slowing down in your personal life while still trying to keep up with the breakneck pace of the world around you.

If you have school aged kids, you’re balancing your work with their summer break. You’re more free and less free at the same time. Maybe you’re like my husband, who is working from home part of the week over the Summer. You’ve got weekend trips planned. Maybe you’re outdoorsy and you like to camp for some reason (hard pass for me). But you also still have life’s everyday demands. Laundry. Meals. Bills. You’ve probably got this idea in your head of what you want your summer to look and feel like.

This week’s episode is dedicated to The Strategists out there. You may have figured that out based on the title of this episode, which is How to Summer Like a Strategist.

A quick overview of the Strategist persona for anyone who new here or unfamiliar, The Strategist is a visionary, able to see how all the pieces of the puzzle could come together to get them where they want to go. Strategists are pretty great at planning things out, and they thrive on what they think is routine, but what is really control.

You might think that routine and rebellion shouldn’t go together, but they absolutely do. You see, for our Strategists out there, they are able to find their freedom and live their truths through that routine.

Each of the Rebel Planning Personas has a Plan Like a Rebel strategy - for The Strategists, that is to K-I-S-S: Keep It Simple Strategist!
