    Hindsight 2020: Year in Review 


    Warning: preg_match_all(): Compilation failed: invalid range in character class at offset 7 in /homepages/23/d339537987/htdocs/ec/wp-content/themes/p2/inc/mentions.php on line 77
    The Coming Storm

    It was the best of times, it was the worst of times.

    Heck no! 2020 was the worst of times with occasional glimpses of light.

    Few people are going to have to search hard for the worst year they’ve experienced.

    Dumpster fire might be the general consensus.

    That said, there were a few things that I would like to note.

    We’re No. 1 (at least in North America)

    Out of nowhere, Point A to Point B Transitions Inc. was nominated for Best Executive Career Transition Coaching Provider – North America.

    And we won 🙂

    After 10 years of service, it feels really good.

    Book Deal

    An independent publisher reached out to me about writing a book on my work with The Depression Discussions on stress, anxiety, and depression. I put together a proposal and it was accepted.

    And then COVID hit, and I put the project on hold indefinitely. I knew this massive global event would affect the way the book needed to be shaped.

    COVID Chaos

    The global pandemic was declared in the US on my birthday, Friday, March 13.

    Worst. Birthday. Ever.

    Stay at home orders were issued, restaurants were closed, and I dropped into radical self-care.

    I prioritized diet, sleep, exercise, meditation, and walking above everything.

    I stopped drinking for the first time ever for 90 days.

    It seemed like a good idea not to drink alone…

    I couldn’t go to the gym and discovered online Zumba taught by a friend.

    I lost 17 lbs.

    My business was gutted by the pandemic and I didn’t think I would stay open until May to celebrate my 10th year in business. But some colleagues, clients, friends, and family got me through.

    I am so grateful.

    Because we keep it real here at Point A to Point B, here’s a poem I wrote about this year.

    Between Us Video Series

    I am extremely proud of this video series. I almost submitted it for an award – that proud.

    In this series, I covered all the things we weren’t talking about during this pandemic – that stuff coming up, what mindfulness isn’t, trying not to lose it, etc.

    Below is the first video of the playlist of 19 short videos – wowza!

    I Dial Down Anxiety 10-Day eCourse

    This came out better than I could have hoped.

    People who went through it said it was incredibly helpful. www.idialdown.com

    New Labor Discussions

    My colleague Tony Catalano and I launched a new interview series exploring the new world of work, New Labor Discussions: Rethinking How We Work.

    We are seriously having the best time doing this, but if you’d like to watch the videos, that would make it even better!

    Intrepid Mastermind Group!

    2020 showed us the importance of staying connected. I realized that I needed to connect with amazing entrepreneurs who are doing great work and serving clients they love.

    A colleague and I couldn’t find a group we wanted to join, so we created one. It has come together so beautifully. It is an absolute joy to support these great professionals – and to be supported by them.

    So, in between trying to stay sane during insane times, I managed to get some stuff done. (Although I will say that it took 2-5 times longer than it did pre-pandemic.)

    As Rob Bell has said, “The work is the gift, the outcome is the frosting.”

    Wishing you a happy, healthy, and prosperous New Year!

    The Most Important Talk I’ve Heard by Unni Turrettini 


    Warning: preg_match_all(): Compilation failed: invalid range in character class at offset 7 in /homepages/23/d339537987/htdocs/ec/wp-content/themes/p2/inc/mentions.php on line 77

    Below is the five-minute promotional video for the best and most important talk I’ve seen in years.

    While we frequently talk about female leadership being inclusive and collaborative, there is a dark side that we are not talking about.

    When driven, executive women do not fully integrate their power and anger, they create toxic relationships at work and at home, and risk losing everything they’ve worked so hard to create.

    Unni’s message and coaching are critically needed. Please check out her 8-week program WOMAN ON FIRE—Deep work for high-achieving women whose anger and perfectionism are ruining their life starting in late January.

    I Dial Down Anxiety LIVE Starting November 8, 2020 


    Warning: preg_match_all(): Compilation failed: invalid range in character class at offset 7 in /homepages/23/d339537987/htdocs/ec/wp-content/themes/p2/inc/mentions.php on line 77

    The I Dial Down Anxiety 10-day eCourse has been in soft launch mode for a few months, and people who have gone through the course love it.

    However, even people who happily paid for the course and wanted the information struggled to carve out the time – about 15 minutes a day – to go through the bite-sized video(s) and related articles.

    The completion rate for online courses is dismal… *sigh*

    Isn’t improving your mindset, focus, and productivity worth 15 minutes a day?

    Isn’t staying out of overwhelm and falling asleep faster worth showing up?

    Heck yes!

    Which is why I’m adding in a LIVE component to give you extra support and accountability.

    It’s ALIIIIIVE! (OK, just live.)

    Live Support and Accountability in a Private Facebook Group

    Your mind may be a dangerous neighborhood right now. Between the pandemic, the economy, working virtually, and homeschooling, you might have a lot on your plate.

    This course will give you tools and techniques to get through these challenging times.

    We’ll have a watch party in a private Facebook group every day for 10 days at 3:00 PM EST. We’ll be watching the short training videos together and I’ll be interacting and answering your questions.

    It’s the accountability everyone has been asking for!

    Just $97 – click Buy Now





    Daily Course Content in Your Inbox for 10 Days

    You’ll also receive the daily emails, including the videos and related content in your inbox, so you can file them away for future reference.

    Each daily email includes:

    – Text introduction to what we’ll be covering
    – Links to resources I reference
    – A short (8-15 minute) video with me
    – Additional video(s) you might find interesting

    Strategies and Tactics That Work for Busy Professionals

    The video topics for the 10 days of the course are:

    Day 1: Noticing – Starting where you are and normalizing anxiety
    Day 2: Acknowledging – Shifting your story and adjusting your language
    Day 3: Meditating – Understanding meditation and what it is not
    Day 4: Starting – Getting past inertia and avoiding overwhelm
    Day 5: Naming – Dialoging with anxiety to decrease its power
    Day 6: Breathing – Noticing your breath and triggering calm
    Day 7: Moving – Shaking it off (Taylor Swift was right)
    Day 8: Resting – Embracing sleep hygiene strategies
    Day 9: Releasing – Exploring healing modalities with Shweta Shyamani
    Day 10: Integrating – Creating new habits and engaging curiosity

    Many People Are Struggling

    If you’ve been struggling, you’re not alone.

    Already, a third of Americans are feeling severe anxiety, according to Census Bureau data, and nearly a quarter show signs of depression. A recent poll by the Kaiser Family Foundation found that the pandemic had negatively affected the mental health of 56 percent of adults. In April, texts to a federal emergency mental-health line were up 1,000 percent from the year before.

    This Is Not a Normal Mental Health Disaster

    Join LIVE

    Join me on Sunday, November 8 at 3:00 PM EST in our private Facebook group and start taking back control of your mind.

    There’s a volume knob and you can turn down the negative self-talk and unhelpful things your mind may be telling you.

    You have more control than you think.

    What People Are Saying

    Catherine has come up with something that is so unique and fills an enormous need right now. We are all living in a new space and trying to force ourselves to accept anxiety as a new normal. It is not, it doesn’t have to be. I highly recommend signing up for Catherine’s program to guide you toward some inner peace, a practice that allows you to continue the process, and something you can truly use for a lifetime.

    The Support You Need

    This course will give you simple tools you can use every day. Just click the Buy Now button and you’ll start getting the emails.

    The first Facebook live will be on Sunday, November 8 at 3:00 PM EST.

    Why Sunday?

    Because Sunday night anxiety is a real issue for many people.
