HEART Goals™ 101
Ten years ago, I had a crazy idea. It was an idea I really truly believed in—but one that also terrified me.
I wanted to teach a course on HEART Goals™—the system that I created, from trial and error, from unreached goals and an unsustainable pace of life, a system that had totally and completely transformed my days. The short version of the story is that HEART Goals™ is a system I created when I realized traditional goal-setting methods weren’t working for me. I believed in this system so much (and still do!), but I was scared—who was I to create my own goal-setting system? My life had changed—but could I really teach others how to change their lives?
Well, friends, if you’ve been around for any amount of time, you already know what happened: I went for it. I taught my first HEART Goals™ course one entire decade ago, and I’ve been teaching it every year since. I’ve tweaked and refined it along the way (and I’ve even written a book on it!) but the purpose has stayed the same: to help women take their lives from busy to balanced. Over the years, I’ve shared a lot of resources related to HEART Goals™ and I wanted to round them all up into one place for you!
HEART organizes your life into five segments:
- Help Myself
- Empower Myself
- All My People
- Resources & Responsibilities
- Trade & Talents

HEART Goals Course:
Ever since I took that leap of faith a decade ago, I’ve taught a HEART Goals workshop each year. Every year, I take what I’ve learned the year before to update and refine it.
If you missed out on the 2023 HEART workshop, don’t worry: you can still grab the replay. When you purchase the replay, you also get a jam-packed, interactive workbook download. It’s over 80 pages full of stories, tips, and worksheets designed to help you live a more beautiful life.
In the video, we’ll dig deep into each of the life segments and work on creating a strong foundation on which all your decisions can rest (making even the hardest decisions feel easy).
This workshop will help you establish a framework for living a more balanced, more beautiful life. I’m not going to tell you to add more to your to-do list or give you a complicated system to follow. I’m going to teach you my simple, flexible HEART framework that helps you prioritize what matters so you can dream better. If you are constantly running yourself ragged trying to do all the things, imagine what your life could be like if you focused on eliminating the unnecessary so you could do less instead of more.
If you are ready to live a more beautiful life, go ahead and get HEART Goals 2023 right here.
The very best part of teaching this course every year? It’s watching lives change. It’s hearing stories of women who are overwhelmed and stressed turn those stories around. It’s hearing from people who have taken the HEART system and created a more beautiful life for themselves. It’s continuing to answer questions from the HEART community as we work together through the year to make sure our to-do lists are filled with the things that really matter, so we can do less instead of always striving for more, more, more.
