Turn Your Vision Board Into a Movie
Vision boards are a fantastic way to breathe life into your goals and dreams. Gary and I have done them for years and always have fun finding the perfect photo or phrase to put on ours. They hang in our bathroom so that we can be inspired each morning.
If you are new to the concept of a vision board, I highly recommend that you try it! After all, what you focus on expands, right? Creating one will allow you to visualize your dreams in new ways. They really help me get into the ‘feeling’ of what it will be like to have it.
I’m a big fan of cork boards so that I can change things out and move them around. It seems to keep the energy moving a bit more than gluing everything to poster board. In addition to finding pictures in magazines and online, I also keep a stack of plain index cards that I can draw my own pictures on which helps it feel more personal.
This past weekend, while at a vision board retreat, we tried something new and turned our vision boards into a movie using www.Animoto.com. I love my new movie! Now I can watch my vision board on my computer or my phone anytime I want!
Animoto is a super simple program to use. They have many different backgrounds to choose from and you can use their music or add your own. Here’s a snapshot from the movie that I created:
The only rule for vision boards is that they make you happy when you look at them. Some people prefer pictures, others prefer words. Some like to have everything very organized and structured, others are more like a collage. Whatever works for you. Don’t over-think it.
Give Animoto a try today and remember to just have fun!

I posted a reel on instagram this week that got a surprising amount of feedback. Surprising in how grateful people were to finally have someone admit the truth. You don’t have to be part of the 5am club to be successful. Did your shoulders relax just a little when you read that? I hope so.…Read More
You know those agents – the lucky ones whose clients magically show up, and they always seem to be having fun while posting sales and having a life. The type of agent you wish you could be – someday. What if YOU could be that person right now?? On the outside, luck can look like…Read More
This is your reminder to keep going and trust that things will work. It’s easy to be impatient and want to know how the story ends. Because if we know that, then we can get there faster and avoid making mistakes along the way. But that’s not how it works. And sometimes the mistakes are…Read More
This is one of the biggest things most agents are missing in their business. But if you’ve ever been a part of a great mastermind and have a solid tribe you know that it’s one of THE best things not only for your business, but for your soul. We aren’t meant to do this alone.…Read More
I was chatting with someone this week who mentioned that they were spending this week journaling, planning and deciding what they want to create in 2024. Sounds awesome! But their last comment got me – I know I should have done this sooner, but… Sooner says who? It got me thinking about all of the…Read More
Ideally it’s both. But somewhere between the joy of dreaming into new goals, and attaching metrics (ie the how) things can go from creative to confining. In the ‘what if’ space – it’s easy to be creative. At this point the possibilities are endless. There is no right or wrong, pass or fail. Actions and…Read More
As we head into the last 2 weeks of the year Grace and Light are the 2 words that keep coming up. Whether this is your favorite time of the year, or one that you would be just as happy to skip – it’s a lot. It can be an intense time of celebration, reflection,…Read More
Seems like a simple question. Of course the reflex answer is yes. I can absolutely have anything I want. But deep down do you believe it? I just came back from a few days of business planning with 3 amazing agents. When we get together we go deep. It’s WAY beyond what we want our…Read More
Today is December 1st. Which means 2024 is right around the corner. No sooner do we finish celebrating the accomplishments from this year – we reset the counters to zero and look to create something new. We list our goals, envision our future and formulate action plans. All necessary parts of the process. But what…Read More
I’m over here at my Dad’s still this week. I’ll be here for a total of 11 days. I love the time with him, but his internet is the WORST. I’m actually using my phone as a hot spot to write this post because the internet is so unstable. I’m all for taking time to…Read More
