Heather Vickery celebrates the first birthday of The Brave Files Podcast. Real stories from people living courageously

Celebrating One Year of The Brave Files!

Today, April 12th marks the 1st birthday of our little baby podcast, The Brave Files!   Happy Birthday to us!! The last year has been so full of lessons and love. I’ve learned that, despite my best efforts, some times technology just messes with me. I am unbelievably grateful to our audio producer, Andrew Olson, who does his best to make each episode sound amazing, even when I have screwed up the audio. (Thanks, by the way, for continuing to listen as we work through these growing pains.) I’ve also learned (once again) the power and importance of delegation! A very special thank you to my executive assistant, Kim Statler, for her constant love and dedication towards me and the work that I do. I

Learn about the power behind celebration and gratitude. Heather Vickery, Success and Leadership Coach

Celebration Creates Gratitude

If you’ve been following along, you know that I am a passionate believer in the power of gratitude. I even wrote a book and journal about it! Most of you also know that I believe celebration is a lost art, and when we choose celebration, we choose joy, recognition, and growth.   So let me go back a little bit. A few years ago, I designed my 7-Steps to Achieving Work-Life Balance. Balance is often considered a “dirty” word. Most people think they've been sold a bill of goods when it comes to having balance.   But here’s the truth – – “balance” is not the scales of justice.   Balance does not mean all things in your life take up equal parts (at least

Success and Leadership coach, Heather Vickery shares the importance of removing tolerations from our life!

Tolerations might be ruining your life

Dictionary.com defines the term ‘tolerate’ as ”to endure without repugnance; put up with.”   For me, when I stop to think about the things in my life that I simply “tolerate”, I find I’m allowing so much to get in my way. When I say this I don’t mean physically, although that giant pile of unfolded laundry does block the pathway from my living room to the kitchen. What I mean by this is, I allow things I can change or control to continue to exist and get in my way emotionally and mentally.   The problem with tolerations is that, by allowing them, we begin to believe they are problems we’re stuck with. We think they’re keeping us down and are insurmountable.   They

Creating Dream Clients

Hey there, business owner! How are you? It’s February. We are nearly two months in to the new year, and you have kicked ass so far (or maybe not, but there’s still time).   In any case – – You’re here, and you’re ready.   Ready for what, you may be asking?

Success and Leadership Coach, Heather Vickery talks about building powerful habits for success.

Positive Habits for Success

You hear it all the time – “We all have the same number of hours in a day.”   So think about that for a second… Beyoncé has the same number of hours in a day that you do. Ok, so most of us don't have Beyoncé money or her staff but neither did she in the beginning.  Building success is about mindset and habit building is a mindset decision!   While this is totally true, we all definitely do not use those hours in the same way. Honestly, the way in which hours are spent is the main difference between those who live fulfilling lives (and run successful businesses) and those who don’t.   My mentor, Aaron Anastasi, used to say to me, “How you do

Commit to 2019!

Here we are at the end of January already. Changes are good. You have reflected on the past year, created some type of vision board and maybe even set a Word of The Year for yourself. I’m willing to bet you also set some goals for yourself. Guess what? Those goals are not likely to happen without some serious intention and planning behind them.   Personal Commitment When I work with clients 1:1, or even in a group setting, I always ask them to make a firm commitment to the things they agree to do. If you are going to write a blog post, I want to know what day and time you intend to sit down and write. Then, I want you to promptly

Success and Leadership coach, Heather Vickery, announces word of the year for 2019: EXPLORE

2019 Word of The Year: Explore

I have been identifying a “Word of The Year” for the last several years. This is a word that inspires, motives and connects me. It’s a word that I employee into every element of my life and work on a daily basis to manifest into reality.   Think of your Word of The Year as one big, overarching goal you set for yourself. But it isn’t a “thing” to be accomplished or checked off your to-do list. It’s a feeling, an energy that you want to bring into all aspects of your life. Essentially it’s a guiding word to carry with you throughout the year.   My Word of The Year for 2019 is … Now, you may be thinking this word means I want

Celebrating a Year's Worth of “Charities of The Week”

As 2018 comes to a close, I can’t help but reflect on all the wonderful things that have happened over the past year.

Reflect before setting new goals!

December Already?   Here I sit, a little in shock that it is December already. This year has flown by! I have celebrated the last of my four daughters’ birthdays and my own, breezed past a beautiful summer, started a new school year, coached many amazing clients, spoke to many amazing crowds, and created a powerful program to help corporate employees discover how leading from authenticity allows them to be more successful. I published 39 amazing episodes of The Brave Files Podcast and became a published co-author of Lose The Cape: The Mom’s Guide to Becoming Socially & Politically Engaged (& How to Raise Tiny Activists). I even participated in NaNoWriMo (trust me, that level of commitment to writing is intense but exciting!), began producing my
