A letter from WIT Founder, Sarah Hernholm
Welcome to the world of WIT!
It's been such an adventure over the last 10+ years sharing WIT with kids, teens, parents, CEOs, entrepreneurs, friends, family, and even the people "lucky" enough to sit next to me on the plane.
The 11 Tips for Doing WIT are just an extension of how I live, how I talk, and how I invite others to live with more authenticity, self-awareness, ownership, and abundance. They are the Tips that drive the work I do at all my companies, but they came to me while I was launching the teen entrepreneur program WIT. So I must give a shout out to all the teens who have been living WIT for many years, and who actually inspired adults to start living WIT, too!
For me, it's so important to remember that we are all capable of doing great things and living great lives.
It doesn't matter how old you are, how much money you have in the bank, or whether or not you have the "credentials" ... you get to stop making excuses and start #doingWIT.
Trust me. You can do this.
I've seen 6 year olds and 60 year olds #liveWIT fully. What does that mean? It means they are living with a solution-focused mindset, owning up to mistakes, valuing themselves enough to set boundaries, and loving themselves enough to step outside their comfort zones. They are also launching businesses!
WIT is all about giving people (of all ages + backgrounds!) the tools needed to feel empowered to do whatever it takes to take care of self, community + the world. As you make the 11 Tips for Doing WIT your own, you'll notice some side effects. These side effects may include: deeper emotional intelligence, more contentment, higher self-confidence, greater self-awareness, financial gains, deeper personal relationships, increased job satisfaction, and more.
How do I know?
Because I experienced all of these things as I embarked on my adventure of building WIT and developing the 11 Tips for Doing WIT. You get to reap the benefits of my journey, and I will enjoy reaping the benefits of yours! I love hearing how people are #livingWIT. I continue to be inspired by how you make the Tips your own. So, keep sharing, emailing, and most importantly ...
aka Miss WIT
