“By making “I AM” statements as part of your daily habit – you will become the person you want to be. ” - Erin Diehl

Happy New Year, failed it! Fam. Are you a career focused, goal driven business professional who wants to manifest the life of their dreams? Do you have a growth mindset, and a  “make it happen” attitude but are not sure where to start?

If so, then today’s episode is for you. Get ready to take a deep breath and set your visions for this new year, despite all of the uncertainty. In order to have a good “scene” or “year” of life – we can prepare by manifesting what it is we want to come into play. So listen in on the exercises Erin provides to help you pave a better year. Grab your notebook and let’s continue to set our 2021 visions!

In today’s episode we will discuss:

  • How to create your top 10 “I AM’s” statements
  • A step by step exercise to help you cast visions on future “you.”
  • How to manifest those visions into actionable next steps. (This is Part 2 of a Three Part series so stay tuned in the upcoming weeks for more! And if you haven’t yet, go listen to Part 1 here)
