“Our daily accelerator life is usually hectic and packed, with even no time for a proper lunch sometimes. Then Brit stepped into our life. Through The Break Changer series for our startups and core team, she designed 10 different sessions for us (how to reduce stress before pitches, how to re-prioritize our to-do lists, etc.) and really took the time to understand the startup needs. Brit did that with so much enthusiasm and positive energy that I just loved being around her. She had a hard time getting our startups and internal team going. Read above: we think there is not time for lunch ;-). BUT she never gave up. Talking, being and working with Brit was always fun and most of all, very productive. I always felt as if Brit really, really understood what we needed.”

“From the beginning, I was blown away by Brit’s positive energy, strong will to deliver extraordinary results and her view beyond the horizon. She really has a way with people. I don’t know how she does it. Through her writing, presenting and facilitating, she has a presence that’s trustworthy, genuine and captivating. We’ll miss having her here to re energize our CEOs and even our visitors. Brit is hands down one of the most positive, happiest people I have ever met. Her energy is contagious.”

“I loved the group, the connectedness, the openness, the accountability and the way I felt while doing The Break Changer. My intentions were to be more present, take time for myself and let go of guilt associated with this. To enjoy life more and not always be so stressed and focused. I absolutely saw changes in myself, and thus my surroundings. I felt a shift for the better and learned some new tools.”

“The 10-for-10 Challenge met my expectations before it even began. I couldn’t help but invite tons of people to join me. You know you’re on to something when people show up. Plus, the content is f*cking brilliant and lovely. Brit’s heart shows. I loved all of it. I hope she’s in the long haul for this one. We need this. We’re starving for it…Americans especially.”

“I never thought that I would forget to make my own breaks in busy times, but I’ve come to this point — and Brit’s sessions are a breath of fresh air. Through her presentations, activities and positive energy, she helps me see things in new ways. Impossible projects feel possible, and what’s most important to me becomes clear. She also reminds me to breathe, take time for the ‘little things’ and come to inner silence. I always leave feeling energized and lighter. She does a great job.”

During my participation in :agile’s accelerator program, I always looked forward to Brit’s sessions. They were good opportunities to take breaks from the hectic startup life. I realized that even if time is tight, I *have* to take breaks, because afterwards, I’m more concentrated, creative and energized. I took a lot of good ideas with me which are now part of my daily routines. For ex: I always kept my mobile near my bed and checked emails, WhatsApp and Facebook the second my eyes were open. Now, I have a look at my wonderful new drawing of a duckling, I smile, and my morning is more intentional.”

“I have a hard time trusting people, but I’ve always trusted Brit because she is a genuinely GOOD person. Her gleeful hard work, impressive follow-ups and determination are truly inspiring. She’s a hyper-compassionate coach with the personal life experience and wherewithal to change lives. Her last challenge offered much-needed respite from my mentally exhausting sales job, but the Summer Reset was a pivotal time as well. Brit is without question one of the major influences that pushed me to make a big change in my life, and now, as I navigate following my dreams and building a health-focused business, I can’t think of anyone I would trust more to guide me.”

“The Break Changer made me think. It made me smile. It’s the right approach and attitude for this crazy, rushing life we live. One cannot excel without breaks. My intentions were to find balance, take intentional breaks for ME and not forget to enjoy life. I definitely met my intentions by doing all these exercises. I even inserted a 10-min “daydream today” break into my calendar at work. YES! I will keep on doing this. I loved dancing in the kitchen, too. It sets you free and wild and makes you insanely happy.”

“Brit has the greatest positive charisma in anyone I’ve ever met. From our very first conversation, I made a decision to become as enthusiastic as she is. True story. She has an awesome vibe and energy.”

 “The 10-for-10 Challenge taught me that 10 minutes a day can change, well, everything. And that is life-changing. I think our bodies used to know when we needed breaks, but now we’ve been conditioned to push past them, to go-go-go and work harder and faster. Learning how to take a break seems silly until you realize you don’t know how. And through this group, I saw I’m not the only one.”

“With this program, I wanted to unplug a little more, be more in the moment, reduce stress in my life and see how that would change everything. I definitely met those goals. I had some breakthroughs. I realized that I CAN let some things go and it’s OK to unplug from my business every once in a while! I loved the community and the daily emails. I always looked forward to what the day’s challenge was and loved seeing what others were doing. Many times this gave me ideas of what to do for my challenge that day.”

“The Break Changer is a Game Changer for those sluggish afternoons at the office!! Brit gave us the opportunity not only to connect with our fellow colleagues in fun, new ways, but she challenged us to take a second, sit back, and reflect on some of the most amazing experiences in our lives. THAT is something I’ll start doing more often.”

“If you shift focus and change your vantage point, you will discover new things. Things that’ll help you perform better in your business and your private life. The Break Changer is a perfect tool to discover all sorts of ways to shift perspective, and find the one that fits you best. Challenge the status quo, challenge routines, challenge yourself. And be a better version of you.”

“I loved the feedback from the community. Although I wouldn’t check the posts until late at night some days, I felt really inspired by reading others’ ‘aha moments.’ I loved hearing how different our lives were, but also sometimes, so similar. It was great to see how effective the challenges were to some people. It really made a difference in their day! That was so uplifting!”

“This has always come at a time when I’ve been overwhelmed with life…so having some quick and easy prompts to be more intentional, share some new experiences and explore the world around me more has been pretty life-changing. Growing up as a man, I was taught to just keep going, be tough and push through no matter what. But I’ve never felt healthier and more joyful until I started actively creating more joy in my life. Brit helped me do that.”

“I was won over by Brit the first time I met her several years ago. She wowwed me with her creativity, passion and willingness to go above and beyond for something she believes in. I have worked with Brit in a professional setting and have also leaned on her for advice and direction over the years. Her work output is top notch and reflects the beautiful heart that she embodies. I cannot recommend her highly enough.”

“This program came at a perfect time for me, as we had just moved back to the States after living in Europe. It made me realize that it isn’t geography (ya know, where we live) that provides that excitement and encourages a love of life (granted being surrounded by old beautiful buildings and a foreign language help), it is really your mindset: How you go about your day, how much you intentionally let the daily grind/routine wear you down and dictate your happiness and the things you prioritize. With a minor shift in my daily perspective, each TBC since that first one has helped me understand how it’s possible to slow it all down, break away from the Groundhog Day-ness, find excitement in the everyday, and in the most recent one, open my mind to the idea of possibility.”

“Before The Break Changer, I was feeling like I’d finally cracked the productivity code. But then, the Femmpreneur Exclusive took my learning to the next level. The daily activities helped me realize how critical it was to not just schedule work time, but to also plan and schedule time for my personal interests. Thanks to Brit, I figured this out before the all-too-common business owner burnout (aka all work and no play). I now make weekly plans that encompass both my professional AND personal objectives. I feel more in control, more accomplished AND more balanced than I’ve ever felt. And I can say with complete confidence that I’ve never been happier with my life.”
