Transcripts

Isabel:

Welcome, I'm Isabel Alexander and I am celebrating the 100th episode of the

Isabel:

Lift As You Climb podcast and the end of 2023 and the beginning of 2024 with you.

Isabel:

Thank you so very much.

Isabel:

If you are a first time joining our audience, welcome and stay tuned.

Isabel:

Boy, have we got an exciting lineup coming for you!

Isabel:

If you've been part of our following for the last while, I want to say thank

Isabel:

you sincerely, for your support, for watching the episodes on our YouTube

Isabel:

channel or listening to them on podcast platforms, and for subscribing and

Isabel:

helping us build our base so that we are able to reach more people, and

Isabel:

for sharing our content with others that you know it will bring value to.

Isabel:

As I said, 2023 was one heck of a year.

Isabel:

I can't believe how fast it went by, and I thought, I've been really busy, but slow

Isabel:

down, take a pause for a minute, Isabel, and think about what have you done?

Isabel:

And, interestingly, Where Have You Been?

Isabel:

Starting right from the beginning of the year, I came back at the end of

Isabel:

22 from Dubai in time to celebrate Christmas with my Canadian family, and

Isabel:

then immediately went off to Arizona and Florida and Mexico, and Ottawa,

Isabel:

and Montreal, and Dubai, and Bali, and Jakarta, and Abu Dhabi, before coming back

Isabel:

to Canada and then leaving on a road trip.

Isabel:

I tallied it up.

Isabel:

12 long distance flights with more than 36, 000 air miles.

Isabel:

And my trusty SUV, who I fondly call Marcel, and I have driven our epic road

Isabel:

trips to many destinations, totaling more than 5, 000 miles, including my

Isabel:

most recent road trip diagonally across North America from Ontario to Arizona.

Isabel:

Do I count myself lucky?

Isabel:

Yes, absolutely I do!

Isabel:

I count myself very lucky that in all of that time there were no negative

Isabel:

incidents, my health was strong.

Isabel:

I had the opportunity to have new experiences, create new memories, to

Isabel:

continue to work with my clients around the world and to continue to vision bigger

Isabel:

and greater things that I want to do in the coming year, 2024 and well beyond.

Isabel:

Most exciting for me is to be part of the visioning and the growth of my clients

Isabel:

while I'm continuing to grow myself.

Isabel:

I shared recently on an episode about an important process for me every

Isabel:

year, and that is choosing my word for the year, and I shared with you my

Isabel:

methodology about choosing your word.

Isabel:

So if you haven't done that already just go back a few episodes and you'll see it.

Isabel:

But I've settled on my word for 2024 and it's very appropriate.

Isabel:

In fact, it chose me.

Isabel:

I didn't choose it exactly or consciously, but the word is RISE.

Isabel:

I rise.

Isabel:

And that excites me so much to think about how I'm continuing to lift myself.

Isabel:

How I'm continuing to know the value and appreciate reaching up to others

Isabel:

who will lift me, and that I continue to look up for opportunities to

Isabel:

grow and become the best version of myself and to help other people build

Isabel:

their own success ladders as well.

Isabel:

Growth is an extremely important value to me.

Isabel:

And as I rise, I'm seeing the advantages from a new perspective,

Isabel:

now that I've reached the age 69.

Isabel:

I celebrated my 69th birthday in Bali, as some of you already know, and I

Isabel:

already have an exciting plan - it will truly be a dream come true - and

Isabel:

I will make sure that it does, to celebrate my 70th birthday in France.

Isabel:

Our new season six, will begin in a couple of weeks.

Isabel:

I'm taking a little bit of time out to prepare that all for you and to

Isabel:

also continue to celebrate what we have accomplished already together.

Isabel:

I'm extremely pleased and honored to continue to bring you, and women

Isabel:

entrepreneurs everywhere in the world, all business owners ,more content about

Isabel:

what I've learned along my journey of 50 years of being in business or

Isabel:

running other people's businesses and coaching business owners to grow

Isabel:

and up level and rise themselves.

Isabel:

I'm going to share the best practices, the mistakes, and the what's next.

Isabel:

I'll share more of my favorite books, as I've started to do recently, and

Isabel:

help to summarize those so that you can get the juice out of them before

Isabel:

you decide if you want to dive in and take the whole book off the shelf.

Isabel:

I'm also going to share my experiences about creating an evergreen business

Isabel:

so that I can continue to travel around the world and do some of my favorite

Isabel:

things and be with my favorite people.

Isabel:

And also about how I build out as a small business now, not quite a solopreneur,

Isabel:

but not far removed from it, how I'm building out a team with virtual

Isabel:

assistants and technologies and amazing partners that support me to grow in the

Isabel:

areas that they are better at than I am.

Isabel:

There's a lot going to be packed into season six, all of it intended to help you

Isabel:

rise, you celebrate, and as we recently discussed, implement your strategic

Isabel:

plan, achieve your milestones, and have that celebration at the end of checking

Isabel:

off all of those goals that you choose.

Isabel:

So for now, I hope that you continue to grow and up level yourself, and

Isabel:

that as a CEO catalyst, I know how very important, how vital your contribution

Isabel:

is to the people in your immediate orbit in the communities around you

Isabel:

and the ripple effect that you have far beyond your own neighborhood.

Isabel:

Please continue living vibrantly and absolutely pushing the limits

Isabel:

up for what you can have in your life and the impact that you have

Isabel:

as you design, and Live Your Legacy.

Isabel:

I'm so grateful to all of you who are on this journey with me.

Isabel:

We are the Encore Explorers.

Isabel:

Talk to you in the new year.

Isabel:

Bye bye.
