YOUR YEAR-IN-REVIEW “Tips from Tara” Year-in-Review Video #1 (of 3):
With the new year on the horizon, even despite the busy-ness of this time of year, it is *absolutely essential* that you give yourself space to review these past 12-months. In part 1 of my annual 3-part Year-In-Review video coaching series, I share a quick easy way to do just that!
This process allows you to gain enormous clarity and insight – not only about the closing year, it also supports you in getting crystal clear on your goals for the coming year.
What’s something that YOU have great appreciation for? Write down at least 3 things that you’re appreciative about from this closing year … and then stay tuned for part 2 of this special 3-part series.
Here are 3 of my own things that I’m appreciative about:
1.) Tara Sage, Inc. did a website rebrand and I’m very happy with the new site. I feel it reflects the professionalism and mission that I provide to my clients. This decision has supported me in better serving my clients AND streamlining my efforts to help you life boundlessly and create a life and business you don’t need a vacation from.
2.) November 5th, 2019 marked our 2-year “Nomadiversary”! 🙂 Since November 2017, my partner, Carl, and I have been living nomadically as full-time RVers, traveling and working from the road. We absolutely love this lifestyle, love supporting and inspiring others to live this dream, and see no end in sight to continuing our nomadic journey.
3.) I was a seminar speaker at the Florida RV Supershow and will be returning again in 2020 to share and support others who long to live boundlessly.
Get ready to realize YOUR biggest, boldest dreams in the coming year! (Your link to part 2 is below.)
Enjoy! And … sharing is caring – so feel free to share!
May your dreams always inspire more than they intimidate,
I believe in transparency. As you may or may not know, the coaching industry is unregulated. There are many coaches who do not want you to know this. I DO.
Behind the scenes, there is great debate in the industry as to whether it matters if a “coach” has formal training. Some argue that life experience is all that’s needed. Others say formal education is the answer. Some say coaching is an art, others say it’s a science.
On your behalf, I say … the “either/or” mentality around this topic concerns me deeply.
As a full-time coach, in business since 2004, I have coach training + a BA in Psychology with a behavior modification specialty + a Masters degree in Holistic Leadership.
At the time of this posting (July 2019), I’m a few days away from my 44th birthday, marking 44 years of life experience. Over the years, I’ve had a wealth of life experience and certainly no shortage of “school of hard knocks” lessons learned. I’ve traveled extensively, left a marriage that was full of dishonesty, dug myself out of debt, built a business from the ground up, and many more personal milestones. All invaluable.
Prior to becoming a coach, I was told many times that I am “gifted”, a “natural coach.” Natural ability is fine and great, and following its lead as we each choose a vocation, makes a whole lot of sense.
BUT – just like I want my doctor to: be someone I feel comfortable with, have graduated at the top of their class, AND have good bedside manner … given the wealth of “coaches” to choose from, I personally see no reason or logic behind hiring a coach who is lacking both professional training and a wealth of life experience.
While a piece of paper does not a professional make (there are plenty of terrible doctors, teachers, etc who have earned degrees) … and while I do not in any way diminish the value of life experience, the bottom line is: life experience is not one and the same with coach training.
I have personally witnessed “coaches” who have basic misinformation and misunderstanding about what coaching is. Unfortunately, this misinformation gets perpetuated by others who, despite good intentions, also lack the proper training and understanding.
As it stands, anyone can hang a shingle – without training, checks or balances. No bueno.
Life experience does not make training unnecessary. All it does is water down the credibility of the industry – my industry. Coaching is a learned skill, one that goes far beyond advice-giving and personal lessons learned.
Done well, it is immensely powerful. A skilled coach knows the intricacies of how to unlock the psychology and the wherewithal for a client to have their own success.
I personally have never:
moved to Costa Rica
bought a dream yacht
sold $2.5M in real estate in the first year as an agent
designed a mindfulness meditation program
sailed around Antarctica
successfully negotiated a salary 40% higher than the one she was going to ask for before coaching
And yet – I have coached clients to accomplish these very things successfully.
How could I have coached people to do countless things that I have never personally done or experienced? >> It is through the application of universal coaching principles and techniques, things I learned through training.
My education and training is as wide as it is deep. Sometimes I go by titles other than Coach, like, for example: Life Strategist, Leadership Trainer, and Business Consultant. All are true. In addition to having a Masters degree in Holistic Leadership and a Bachelors degree in Psychology, I also earned a certificate from one of the first coach training institutes worldwide, back when there were only three to pick from. Add to that 15+ years in business, and not only do I want to help you succeed, I have a strong application, orientation and foundation for how to do so.
Given the lack of industry regulation, unfortunately the burden falls on the client to discern which “coaches” are qualified and which are not. Many unsuspecting clients find themselves buying a service that, in actuality, the practitioner is not qualified to deliver.
Despite the charlatans in our midst, please be assured: there are MANY highly skilled, highly qualified coaches – myself included – who are ready to serve you in the highest way.
Whether you work with me or someone else, here’s my recommendation: With so many coaches to choose from, ONLY hire those who have both professional coach training and a wealth of life experience.
With each day’s playful practical experiment landing in your inbox, dust off those dreams that have been put on that hard-to-reach shelf, locked away, long forgotten, or that simply feel silly, unrealistic, even impossible. By this time next week, you will see the transformation!

I have a Masters degree in Holistic Leadership, a Bachelors degree in Psychology, and a coach training certificate. Before starting my company, I gained extensive experience as a behavior modification therapist, an integral part of a treatment team for inpatient psychiatric populations, and as a member of an addiction medicine treatment research team at Brown University. More than anything, from this experience I gained a strong practical and theoretical foundation in therapeutic intervention models and client needs assessment. (In other words, I not only want to help, I also have a strong application, orientation, and foundation for how to help.)

Hi there! It’s Tara Sage of tarasagecoaching.com and by now you know I help people live their dreams. You are watching this special video seriesdesigned to help you create a life you absolutely adore, a life you don’t need a vacation from, a life that inspires you to get up and out of bed in the morning with gusto, excited for the day ahead.
The video series is called 9 Simple Powerful Strategies to Accelerate Your Dreams. I’m breaking it down one strategy at a time, into manageable, bite sized pieces. And today I’ll be sharing another twofer!Yay!
Today I’ll be sharing Dream Acceleration Strategy #8 & #9!
Ok, so let’s move on now, starting with Dream Acceleration Strategy #8. Strategy #8 is simply to Spend More Time with People who Believe in You and Your Dreams
It is so important to surround yourself with a community of people who believe in you and believe in your dreams. I call these folks Your Dream Team.
Trust me, I understand the urge to keep dreams private, secret, protected. It can feel vulnerable, especially when your dream is not received with support. So, rather than risk being ridiculed or dismissed or criticized, maybe up until now you’ve decided to go it alone and do it all by yourself.
Here’s the problem with this strategy: It leads to stress, overwhelm, and feelings of isolation.
Now one of the things I offer in my signature program Dream Acceleration Program, is going in-depth about creating what I call your Naysayer Navigation Plan…
This is about making a point to spend time with people who believe in you and your dreams, and also be fully prepared for how to handle the fact that not everyone is going to jump up and down and celebrate your dreams with you.
This is extremelyimportant.You really can’t do it alone. And if you havea little voice in your head saying “yes, I can, Tara…” I challenge you to honestly look at how that’s going for you.
If you want to really accelerate the process, having the right support can make all the difference! Especially for us we should be able to do it all by our self people!
Just the fact that you’re watching means that you feel called to be connected. You feel called to be a part of what I like to call a “Culture of Dreaming”.By finding your way to this video, which again I don’t believe to be a coincidence, you have aligned yourself with access to this kind of support. You have begun to connect to a very powerful, deeply transformational process.
There’s no insta-pill. So the key is to keep going. The Dream Acceleration Program is an opportunity for YOU to have an even more intimate connection to support and the depth of material that will help create that transformation.
Before I go into sharing Strategy #9, I want to share with you here a little bit more about The Dream Acceleration Program because this is such a powerful process.
This signature program is like receiving private coaching from me at a fraction of the rate, though audio trainings, and at your fingertips access to all the worksheets and content you need, delivered to you – again – one manageable step at a time.
Don’t just take my word for it.Visit dreamaccelerationprogram.com and check out the stories of clients who’ve worked the program and experienced the results.
To give you a first-hand sense of it, a client of mine named Laurie made a quick video about her own dream acceleration journey, which you’ll see by following the link to the program details.
It was December when Laurie and I started working together, and just 6 months later, she fulfilled her dream of moving to Costa Rica!Now, of course, there’s more to the story than that and, as I said, you can find the amazing inspiring video of her story by going now to www.dreamaccelerationprogram.com
But to give you fair warning, be sure to have tissues nearby. The video is so moving. I well up, every single time I watch it.
I’ll share a bit more about how you can claim a seat in a moment but first, I am super excited to let you know that in this video, I’m also providing you with a coupon code for this awesome program. Even without the coupon code, by design, the Dream Acceleration Program is already super affordable! The regular program rate is just $347/mo! (That’s $11/day for something hard to even put a price on.)
But for joining me for this video series, I am giving you a coupon code that will actually knock $200 off, making your first monthly payment just $147! Or, if you decide to pay in full, the coupon will take $200 right off the top.
I mean, the fact that you’ve watched this far, I know you’re ready for this process.
So here’s the special coupon code for you to use when you check out, ok? You’ll see a little box in the shopping cart that says “Coupon Code”. Type in the code:TODAYISMYSOMEDAY (all one word) and click on “Apply” and you’ll see immediately $200 saved.
Join the Dream Acceleration Program today (or what I lovingly refer to as “the DAP”) and apply this coupon code: TODAYISMYSOMEDAY (all one word).Type TODAYISMYSOMEDAY at checkout and you’ll get the first month for just $147, or save $200 on the pay-in-full option.
Through this program, I have had the honor and privilege to support driven dreamers like you, so that you are consistently and powerfully creating accelerated momentum, feeling excited and energized about bringing your dreams to life and creating a life you love.
You could be living in Costa Rica.Or whatever your dream destination is.
You could go from creating artwork on your dining table to having your very own studio.
Or like some of my other clients …
You could be generating 240k in your first year of business.
You could buy your dream yacht to sail around Antarctica at age 62.
You could be the designer who’s gearing up to leave her day job after selling more pieces last month, than all of last year combined!
You could finally take the leap of faith to leave that corporate j-o-b after 25 years, or 10 years, 3 years, or 3 months, and gracefully land in a career of your own design.
You could be the next “closeted creative” who breaks free and stops hiding. Like the mom who woke up everyday with images in her mind and knew herself to be a painter but had no brushes or paint, because she feared that if she allowed herself to paint, she’d neglect her family.
I’m happy to report that she has since not only bought herself paint and brushes,but has travelled internationally to attend trainings in her art and her kids have not been neglected. In fact, they now have a mom who’s happier.
Something all of these folks have in common is that they started at Step 1. They said “yes” to registering for the Dream Acceleration Program, and they took the brave step to connect with their imaginations, admitting what they want, and finally saying their dreams out loud without any disclaimers – first to themselves, and then to other people.
And all of this, while the stories of “unrealistic” “impossible” “selfish” or “not enough whatever” … all that gets left in the dust.
Sounds pretty good, doesn’t it?So how do we do that?
Well, I’ve come to understand it’s an actual step-by-step process. And it’s what I refer to as The Dream Acceleration Process and I’ve created the Dream Acceleration Program specifically designed to support you in doing this.
So let me tell you a little more about that.
It’s a 6-month program, and in it, I’ll be giving you all my dream realization secrets, immediate energy management tools to use, and direct hands on how-to’s so you have a clear, proven process and you are fully equipped to realize any dream you can imagine.
Now, if you’re a visual person, I invite you see what I’m talking about in a bit more detail at www.dreamaccelerationprogram.com You’ll see an outline of the steps that we walk through together in the program, and you’ll see all the bonuses and what’s included with the program – to include private calls with me!
I have put an enormous amount of thought and heart into designing this program.
It’s my signature program. It’s the culmination of my psychology degree, also pulling from what I learned while earning my Masters degree in Holistic Leadership, my coach training, as well as tons of self-study … and also the super-valuable school of hard knocks.
I’ve condensed it down into the best, most efficient, effective tools so that you have exactly what you need, one module and one step at a time, to get you on the fast-track to your dreams.
I’ve built into it, private time with me. The first thing we’ll do is connected for a private 1:1 Kick-Off Activation Call. You’ll have access to anytime support throughout the program so there are no bottlenecks. If you get stuck,we’ll get you unstuck. And, by design, there’s time enough for you to integrate the material fully before diving into the next step so we don’t have you going into overwhelm.
The program also helps you build the muscle of independently making time for your dreamwork, creating that as a new habit – so important – so you take it with you, into the rest of your life.
Over the years, I’ve consistently made improvements to the program because I want to be sure you’re really truly actualizing your dreams.
When you visit the website, you’ll notice the program I’m offering to you now is the 2.0 version, which is all fantastic and so valuable.
And again, even without the coupon code, this program is priced to sell and when you look at the payoff is you get to live in Costa Rica, or leave that dead-end job, or start that business, or come out of your creative closet … or whatever your dream is.
Because , why would you stop here??
It is time to break free of what’s no longer a fit for you, to rediscover yourself and your dreams, and to experience the true freedom that life has to offer.
If you can dream it, I can coach it.
So, let’s get going … let’s get started.
Once again the coupon code to use is TODAYISMYSOMEDAY (all one word) and the program details and registration info can all be found at www.dreamaccelerationprogram.com
The sooner you start, the sooner you’ll create this acceleration in your life.
So, before we wrap, last but certainly not least, Strategy #9.
Strategy #9: Celebrate Your Successes!
There will always be higher mountains to climb and new ambitions that emerge, and it’s so important to celebrate where you are, how far you’ve come, and the many many milestones along the way!
Life truly is about the journey not the destination. And life is to be celebrated!
And as a dreaming pioneer, keep in mind that what you create not only benefits your life, but reaches out beyond you, to those you know, and even ripples out into the world at large!
Please know that I am celebrating you for showing up. 95% of people don’t do that! But you did. You’re here.
And if you decide to register for The Dream Acceleration Program you’ll have lifetime access to the program so you can come back to it again and again as new dreams emerge and re-engage with the material anytime!
So, I want to say thank you again so much for the opportunity to serve you and to contribute to your journey. I absolutely love connecting with people from my community and am so delighted that our paths have crossed.
Together we really are so much more, so thank you for sharing this time with me. I look forward to the opportunity to further support you, any way that I can. Please don’t hesitate to reach out to me directly with any question you might have.
