Hey there, Family Brand community! As we launch into 2024, it feels like the perfect moment for reflection and setting intentions. This time of year is always special for us, filled with celebrations and the chance to reset with purpose. Our family has a unique tradition of choosing a word or phrase that guides us throughout the year, and we’re excited to share this year’s powerful theme with you: “Get that dog in you.”

This phrase, which might sound unconventional at first, encapsulates the essence of determination, grit, and tenacity we’re embracing for 2024. It’s about finding that inner strength and drive to pursue our goals, whether that’s excelling in sports, growing our businesses, or simply being more outgoing. 

Incorporating this theme into our daily lives, we’ve found playful and meaningful ways to remind each other of our collective and individual commitments. From morning routines that include affirming our phrase, quote, and a supporting scripture to invoking it during moments of hesitation or challenge, it’s become a source of motivation and unity for our family.

We believe in the power of setting intentions and regularly revisiting them to ensure our energy aligns with our goals. This practice isn’t just for us; it’s a universal tool that can bring clarity, direction, and a sense of shared purpose to any family. If you’re feeling inspired to adopt a similar tradition, remember it’s never too late to start. 

So, as you move forward into this year, we challenge you to ask yourself and your family: Do you have that dog in you? How will you embody your chosen word or theme to not just navigate 2024, but to thrive within it? Hit play and join us as we make 2024 a year of action, growth, and boundless possibility. Remember, you get what you work for, not what you wish for. Let’s all get that dog in us!
