The holidays are upon us! Woo-hoo!

And take it from me, this is not the time of year for useless emotions like GUILT.

Or that ridiculous world “should.” As in: “I should resist the cocktails,” or “I should eat the carrot instead of the delicious mini quiche.”

All CRAPPOLA! Leave the serious discipline for January.

Instead, I encourage you to:

2) Let your hair DOWN, and
3) Have some FUN over the next couple of weeks!

And please don’t get me wrong. One still needs to be responsible during the holidays…but certainly NOT sensible.

Why? Because the very definition of a holiday is a break in your regular routine! That’s how you re-charge!

If you do that, full out, with NO GUILT — just like I’m going to do with my chocolate, scotch, and cheese — then you’ll enter the new year rejuvenated and ready to take some major action in your life.

So here’s a bit of a reality check: as of today, there are only three weeks left of the year, and that’s it! 2014 is gone forever!

Both sobering and exciting at the same time, don’t you think?

But what if you I told you there was something you could do that would:

  1. have a profound effect on how you feel about yourself as 2014 draws to a close, and
  2. impact your level of optimism and enthusiasm as you enter 2015

Would you be interested? I certainly would be!

What I’m talking about is a little BIG something I’m calling your “2015 Manifesto.”

And please, don’t tune this out just because you’re not in the mood to work.

This stuff is fun, meaningful, and it changes lives.

I am giving you a FREE gift!

In the spirit of the season, and because I have a goal to help as many people as I can to live their best year ever in 2015, I’m offering you the opportunity to book a FREE 1/2 hour personal coaching session with me.

Just ME and YOU. For 30 minutes. To kick-start your life, your goals, your dreams. And set you up for the best year of your life. Entirely for FREE.

This is seriously awesome!

Perhaps you are curious about personal coaching, or maybe you have not considered it yet.

Well, let me ask you a few questions:

  • Are you feeling “stuck” in your life, job, or relationship?
  • Are you struggling with finding your purpose?

Here at my home in California, we’re getting ready to celebrate Thanksgiving — such a joyful holiday!

If you’ve read My Fat Little Rule Book, you’ll know that I absolutely LOVE food. Bring on the turkey, stuffing, and all the yummy sides…and how about a big Scotch while we are at it! :)

And as someone who is proudly Canadian, but living in America, I’m fortunate enough to celebrate this special time of gratitude twice a year. I begin in October with my Canadian family and friends, and then I’ll carry on tomorrow with my loved ones here in the US. It’s really the best of both worlds, and I have so much to be grateful for!

But in today’s special Thanksgiving episode of Jacquie Straight Up, I want to share what I AM MOST grateful for this year…and it is YOU!

Picture this: I’m in a hotel room, getting ready to attend a wedding, rocking out to a Rolling Stones concert that just happened to be on TV:

“You make a grown man cryyyy. You make a grown man cryyyy.”

Yup, that was me, blow-dryer microphone and all…letting out my inner rock star. YES!! lol

As you’ll see on today’s Jacquie Straight Up, I’m coming at you live from my hotel room in LA. I’m here for a dear friend’s wedding…a very busy travel month for sure!

But during my impromptu “rock-out” with the Rolling Stones, it struck me that there is a HUGE message here: the secrets to Mick Jagger’s success…and it really has nothing to do with his voice.
