It’s Leap Year! Who knew time would pass so quickly since the last Leap Year! In that time life has certainly changed and yet, so much as stayed the same! I’m taking a leap in 2012 to go beyond “good enough.”

I just read this in A Place of Yes by Bethenny Frankel and I’m inspired:

“But your life can be better than “just good enough.” It can be amazing. You can be more successful, more fulfilled, healthier, and happier than you are right now.”

I am ready for that. Are you? I get frustrated with myself when I question my desire to have more than I have. Really, I’m so very blessed. Great family, my husband has a job, we have a home, we are generally healthy, we have cute pups, I have the ability to stay home with my kids and homeschool as that’s what they need right now and we have food on the table every night. I have had amazing opportunities with A Mom in Red High Heels and have enjoyed some success with it. But, I want more. I want more than “good enough.”

I want that for you too!

To take my life to the next level, I hired a business coach! I’m excited to have someone help me organize, strengthen the A Mom in Red High Heels brand and come up with new features to share with you, the readers. While I feel nervous (ok, scared) about the financial and time commitment this year will bring, I’m also very excited to get started and take this business to the next level! While I wonder where the time will come from (hello, homeschool takes a HUGE chunk of my day! Lets not forget I have to maintain a healthy marriage, family relationships and friendships…not to mention get some sleep!), I am certain that I will learn, improve and surprise myself with what I’m capable of! I am taking a leap of faith that I pray will bring my family to a better place!

I hope with the changes I make around here this year, I inspire you to go BIGGER and take a leap in your life too! Need some inspiration? Visit and see what others are putting on their Leap List. While you are there, create your own Leap List and enter the Honda CR-V Leap Year Contest! Make your list and get busy checking off!

Before I get started on this new project, and all the hard work and time it will require, I need to have some crazy fun. You know, work hard, play hard! Here is my personal Leap List:

Play hard, work hard! Once I get the business to what I can envision it can be, I’ll be traveling and meeting women all over the world, inspiring them to make themselves a daily priority, own red high heels and feel confident and stylish! All the while, my husband and kids will come along on the travels and we can do “real world school” by incorporating what we see and do along the way. Maybe Honda CR-V will take us on location?! Perfection!

Your turn! Please share with me what your BIG LEAP is this year! What do you want to do before taking that leap? Comment below to inspire us all!
