“Everyone has two lives.
The second one begins when you realize you have only one.”
-Steven Joel Sotloff, botanist
The YAY Action Squad is a supportive & encouraging monthly accountability & membership group of big dreamers who believe that dreams don't work unless you do.
We set simple yet meaningful and game-changing goals for our lives -- like negotiating a raise, finally (!) setting up a budget that works, moving into your own place, get that novel started, etc. -- and get the support, inspiration, and tools to make it happen!
Your ticket includes...
Connecting with our inspiring group to getting the support you need to move forward
A monthly mini-lesson & tool to help you -- the busy quiz, a negotiation prep checklist and role play, the tree vs. road visual to turn obstacles into opportunities, etc.
Access to our closed Facebook group with 24/7 support
Participating in "10-minutes of courage" -- focused co-working time that moves the needle
A 30-day calendar for tracking your actions
A fab "You Are Beautiful" sticker for your phone :)
Making new friends and reconnecting with old ones <3
From a past YAY Action Squad:
What did you find most helpful?
I loved the format, the group, the energy! The calendar handout and the 10 minutes of courage were great. -M
So much to list! The energy, actually implementing the 10 minutes of courage, how organized it was with the activities and the packet. Thank you! -C.
The timeboxing exercise forced me to find my answers. -V.
I really liked all the exercises. They helped me summon how I feel now (accomplished) and how I want to feel. I also like the Tree vs. Road visual. -A.
The tree vs. road, the daily tasks, and the busy quiz! -V.
This is for ambitious, soulful dreamers who want to (finally!) just *do* the thing they’ve been waiting too long for.
Not only will we be there to help you say “Yes, I *can* do this!” But we’ll actually reserve space and time for you to do it and follow-up up with accountability.
Currently, the YAY Action Squad is only open to students who have taken a You're Already You playshop in the past, or are invited by someone who has.
Space is limited to keep it intimate, so when tickets run out the event is full. Reserve your spot now.
Also, please be early to find parking, to not miss intros. We will start right at 10am with introductions.
Note: If you must cancel, your fee is non-refundable, but is transferable. The event is limited, so when tickets run out the event is full.
Option 1: Large Parking Garage across the street.
Option 2: Metered street parking.
WHAT IS YOU'RE ARELADY YOU AND WHO IS ANI MERCEDES?
Paraphrased from Miami Girls Mag: Graduate school left Ani $42k in student loans. She had a decision to make: find a way to pay off her debt or follow her dreams to become an artist. She did both. In two years, Ani paid off her student loans, produced two documentaries (both featured at film festivals and one on PBS), all while working full-time and learning as much as she could about personal finance. She wanted to help others to do the same by sharing her knowledge. She launched You’re Already You and started leading workshops on goal setting, personal finance, and time management. Ani has been featured in financial publications such as Learnvest, Zerobound, and Bankrate. Her mission is to help ambitious dreamers live confident and inspired lives through real talk and measurable results.
