The 20th Annual Things We Are Thankful For List

Because it’s our 20th year in business (yet still tell me we look good for our age, ’cause that never gets old), Team Powerful and I are sharing the 20 things we are most thankful for this year.

Check out our list and add yours to the comments and you just might win some #PowerSwag.

The 20th Annual Things We Are Thankful For List

  1. To God for making the impossible possible, including the perfect timing of providing us with our new childcare provider….Disney+
    .
  2. Years of using Zoom that prepared us for today….the ability to run a company, coach our clients and share cocktails with coworkers all without having to put real pants on.
    .
  3. The teachers who have sacrificed their personal time and energy into making sure that our children are getting the best education they can despite the circumstances that we are facing in this world right now and the officials who are criticized for doing their really hard job but keep on doing it. None of you are paid enough.
    .
  4. The incredible pivots of our coaching clients who are having the best years of their careers and multiplying their impact while they multiply their income…Jenny Benzie at Epernay Wines, Scott Whitaker at Membership Multipliers, Todd Tramonte at Real Estate Growth Systems, Judy Hoberman at Selling In a Skirt, Tanya Auger, a Certified Nutrition Coach and Healthy Lifestyle Strategist, just to name a few.
    .
  5. UPS, FedEx, USPS, Target Drive Up, Grocery Pick Ups and Shipt employees, for making it so dang easy to still get the stuff we need without having to step foot inside a store.
    .
  6. The Keurig, Starbucks Drive Through and Dunkin Donuts delivery via Door Dash. Our bodies are made up of 85% caffeine and are forever grateful for your support.
    .
  7. The people who came in support of our Pubcast, launching another best-selling book this year, “The No B.S. Guide to Direct Response Social Media Marketing, 2nd Edition.”
    .
  8. Coworkers who make us laugh hard enough to cry.  A beautiful respite in a crazy world.
    .
  9. That Ben & Jerry’s comes in a pint.  And said pint fits easily in the freezer.
    .
  10. The 1,854 people who joined our first 10x Your Followers Challenge, because you are exactly the ones we need to grow their audiences right now.
    .
  11. Infusionsoft, ClickFunnels, GoToWebinar, and Zoom.
    .
  12. Our Power Tribe members for seeking ways that 2020 happened for you, not to you.
    .
  13. Not wearing high heels for more than six months and the slower pace of life that this shoe change supports.
    .
  14. Our Inner Circle Mastermind that formed to get together in person but played full out in virtual, making dramatic up-levels in their businesses and having one heck of a good time doing it.
    .
  15. The iGlasses filter. ‘Cause 2020.
    .
  16. Those who showed up and played all out at our first two virtual events, Launch Academy Live…you’ve made the world a better place and you are just getting started. And yes, for all of the events we have ever done, these are our favorites.
    .
  17. The 72 incredible game-changing entrepreneurs who joined our brand-new coaching program, Power Up. You are setting the world on fire and good thing, because there are so many who need your light right about now.
    .
  18. Our amazing families who have juggled life around what we all do, and that you remain healthy and relatively, on most days, happy. We love you so, so much. And our furry pets…both old and new. We are a company of parents with kids and dogs…and still, we are able to stay productive. (See #6 on how we make this possible.)
    .
  19. This one is from Kim only (because heck, I finalize the compilation list and I can do as I please, thank you very much)…to the most incredible team I have had the privilege of leading in the 20 years I’ve been in business. Team Powerful Kelly, Caryn, Jess, Tanya, Kate, our Coaches Lou and Tami, Jason, Mimi, Greg, our new crew Nick, Marisa, Chuck, and Larry, and the supporting vendors who make our big goals possible, Demi Stevens of Year of the Book Publishing, Shaun Buck of Newsletter Pro, Jon Toy of Shock and Awe Box, Cindy Kubinsky of City Blueprint, Kia Arian of Zine Design, Ariana Chedgy of Make Me Up, Holly White, Liza Bliss, Hlee Moua and all of the other incredible vendors we get to work with. We are so thankful for you.
    .
  20. And for you, our incredible community of amazing people who are crazy enough to think they can change the world and because of it, are the ones who do.

    Grateful to have found you and your tribe to help Polish and shine my offer, my business and myself. Thanks to your Launch Academy I had somewhere to land when I was excused from another group for believing in God. I’m grateful for your bold truth and solid belief.

  2. You and Team Powerful make me smile, Kim! I’m thankful for you in my life, for your teachings, your example, support and encouragement. I’m also thankful for 2020 and the fascinating ways we as a people have pivoted to find new and maybe better ways to live, work and love.

  3. I love this!!! I agree with all, but #12 is sticking out to me.

    2020 started out to be the best year for my 7-figure award winning event company.. and then March happened. In a nutshell I am thankful for COVID and that it forced me out of an industry I loved for almost 30 years and into God’s calling in my life to reduce the suicide statistics in the world.

    Over 50% of entrepreneurs struggle with depression and/or anxiety and I am on a mission to change that!

  4. I’m incredibly thankful for the compassionate, caring, and selfless group of nurses, doctors, first responders, caregivers, and front-line workers who have tirelessly put themselves in harms way to ensure healthcare delivery is available to all who need it.

  5. Love this so much! I am thankful for webinars, because a webinar took me to a virtual event where I met Kim, and I am convinced that God is working through her to bless my life forever, in immeasurable ways.

    I am very thankful for Kim, Caryn and Kelly. They have helped me learn so much this year where so many other people (companies,) have failed. I can now do a webinar, Facebook ads, email campaigns and so much more! You are truly wonderful to work with and always answer my questions with a virtual smile even if they already did it months before!
    I am also very thankful for the IC community that is so supportive and creative! Thank you all!

  7. I am thankful for my family, my friends, our health and technology. While we couldn’t be together in the same room, we did Zoom and it was “almost” as good.
    I’m also grateful and thankful for opportunities that have been presented to me during this crazy year and look forward to continuing to be open to the possibilities
    I am honored and thankful to be mentioned in the “PowerUp Professionals 20th Annual Things We Are Thankful For” list. I don’t take that lightly.

  8. Incredibly thankful for Kim and Team for their over the top resources, kick-in-the-pants encouragement, reliable advice, hand holding in all things technical and empowering belief in us Entrepreneurs. I would never be this far in my business without you. Thank you.
