You may have only met me while I'm living in Bali this spring/summer - or only know me as a writer, intuitive guide, online entrepreneur, and/or Transformational Business Coach - but let me tell you about one of my other business babies.
See the fun stickers on my laptop? Every year for the last five years (2013-2017), I've had my spring & summer months consumed by my second business co-producing a huge event called @YesAndYesYes.
(Also known as #YxYY
, or affectionately called Yes&.)
Together with my four badass YxYY co-founders, whom I adore (@amylola @sanfranannie @thisisdebs
) - and the 400+ different artists, futurists, and visionary changemakers from all over the world that have joined us - we co-created 5 years of long weekends of YES at the Ace Hotel in Palm Springs, CA that continue to ripple through all of our minds & hearts!
Business partnerships & new love relationships were formed, kismet connections sparked and deep bonds forged; mind-expanding wisdom & ideas were openly shared, and super fun & heartfelt talks were presented; crafts were made, 3D printers, robots & LED signs were buzzing; karaoke was gleefully sung at the tops of our lungs in the RVIP, awe-inspiring costumes were showcased while breaking it down on the dance floor at the awesomely themed/decorated prom nights; Dive-In Movies were watched by the pool, delicious drinks/food was enjoyed, games galore were played on every floaty you could imagine in the water, and more board/card games played inside or at mightnight for those allergic to the sun; big belly laughs guffawed, yoga & meditations were om'd, loving engagements were proposed, and we even had a sweet, small wedding happen one year!
Us co-founders decided to take a break, so we're on haitus this year, but FB has been showing all of us our amazing memories & it's been so heartwarming to see!! (Ok, and a little sad, because it's an event we all look forward to and have loved SO much every year, we all miss each other!)
Still, it's truly remarkable to look back and take in how incredible this collaboration has been & how many beautiful lives have been positively impacted by it.
