You're already great at moving mountains and making things happen—especially for other people! Now it's time to find out what happens when you stop running so hard and shine your light back on yourself.  

The life you want is possible. And it's closer than you realize.

it's time to try a different kind of brave

Besides, you don't really know how to be anyone other than the Enthusiastic High-Achiever. Even when you take on something like meditation, you do so with the gusto of becoming the Best! Meditator! Ever!*

which is impossible to keep up and never leads to that blissed-out, grounded-and-open energy the Pema Chödrön books promise 

You’ve done everything right.
Just like they told you to. 


You’ve done everything right.

Just like they told you to. 


So why aren't you MORE satisfied?

So why aren't you satisfied?

No matter how many articles you’ve read about the benefits of slowing down, your ambition is still the driving force of your life. 

And despite all that striving and busyness getting you to NOW—a place other people would love to be, and everything you thought you wanted—even with all the checked boxes, a full calendar, and photos from your annual trip to Outer Banks on the walls, your days don't necessarily feel good. 

On the day to day, you chalk it up to the boredom of the daily grind (not everyone can live like a socialite), but deep down, you sometimes worry that your life force is slowly slipping through your fingers. 



The human rights-defending career! The perfectly behaved twins! George! Lake Como! Those flowy comfortable-AND-chic pants! The self-assured unflappability!

You might think that a life well lived has to look as close to Amal Clooney’s as possible,* when it actually looks like you being in integrity to yourself. Dance parties in the kitchen just because, waking up rested and excited to start your day, telling someone the truth about how you feel in the moment that you feel it. 

And even though you know you’re good at what you do, you dismiss the excellence that comes easily to you as less valuable than the things that require effort—you've been taught that achievement should be effortful. 

Those gold stars will never heal your longing.


I'm here to tell you it's okay to lean into the skills that come easy to you or that have become second nature over the years, even though you're used to getting gold stars for being a hard worker. 


Even though everyone else seems to have adulting nailed, it’s not just you who feels this way. 

AND GUESS WHAT:

You and I both know that tons of other people have already thrown their hands up, saying "I guess this is just how adulting works," counting down the hours they have left until retirement, sailing through the next 22-ish years on the SS It Is What It Is. 

And I love that you know that’s not the path for you. #dissatisfiedbutresignedisNOTthenewblack #notonmywatch

This is where I propose
that you embark on a
year-long experiment of living differently...

AUDACIOUS? YES. IMPOSSIBLE? NOT AT ALL.

This is your chance to take a break from letting your ambition and to-do lists dictate how you move through your days and learn to anchor yourself in something deeper. 

This program offers just the right amount of structure, support, and accountability for you to find a new animating force for your entire life… beyond rapid-fire emails to your boss, carpool duties, and a devotion to your planner.

And rather than having to bring your full Honor Roll self into this experience, you’ll learn to leave your high-achieving energy on the shelf and show up as you are. Just you. Making space for the wildly radiant, alive, and free version of yourself to come through—without having to take months off work, move to Bali, or Eat, Pray, Love your way into your Best Life. 

Grown-Up Gap Year

get ready for:

Let’s bridge that gap between where you are and the life you want.

It’s your turn to slow down, take stock of what’s working and what isn’t, and ground yourself in the most powerful of YESes and NOs...

ALL WHILE REMAINING ACTIVELY AND BEAUTIFULLY ENGAGED IN WHAT MATTERS MOST.



Just as your niece took a year off from college to find herself, figure out what really matters most, and make out with a few French boys (le sigh), I want to give you the grown-up version of this—minus the regret laden tattoo and dancing-all-night hangovers.

Grown-Up Gap Year requires zero international travel. Nor will it ask you to wake up at 4 am for daily meditation, go to Sicily to find Liz Gilbert’s pizza place, or quit your day job.  

LET'S GET MOVING...

Instead, this works precisely because you can insert it into the life you’re living now.

Instead, this WORKS Precisely because you can insert it into the life you’re living RIGHT now.

Because your life is ready for you to fall in love with it.

I’m talking here about the kind of life where you decide to actually be the person you keep thinking about being. 

You’ll find new levels of peace, play, and connection in your days without having to radically shift your circumstances, which means you’ll wake up one day and actually see exciting things when look at your calendar—and you’ll realize that it’s been weeks since you’ve indulged in that tired-but-familiar maybe we should move to Boston Zillow habit. 

You’ll be able to breathe easy knowing that you can take off your Sherlock Holmes hat and stop playing personal development whack-a-mole. (Your life is not a DIY project you found on Pinterest. And you don’t have to go it alone anymore.)

You’ll (finally!) stop forgetting what you want amongst the tidal wave of everyone else’s needs, and you’ll develop practices to bring your focus back to yourself when things get busy and your days get full. Because remembering to remember what you want is half the battle! 

Your IRL relationships will feel better. You’ll be more connected to the people around you. Small talk will be less painful, and you’ll be able to dive into the good parts waaaaay faster from all the truth-telling practice you’ll be getting!

You’ll get to stop rushing through all of your experiences for the sake of a promised finish line that you never seem to reach, and instead relax into your own version of presence—even without having hacked the perfect morning routine or meal plan. 

SO HOW DOES THIS SOUND?

This is the part where I’m supposed to promise rainbows, unicorns, and unlimited Ben & Jerry’s and tell you that after spending the year with me, you’ll be a walking orgasm who never experiences doubt again. 

But I can’t. And won’t. 

Because just like in The Wizard of Oz where despite going on the same journey, Dorothy gets a trip home and the Lion discovers he had courage all along, everyone walks away from this program with different things—unique to what makes their individual life feel good on the inside. 

Which means this is your chance to stop following the prescribed checklists of A Girl’s Guide to Fulfillment (you’ve already checked off so many of those anyway!) and write your own. 

Grown-Up Gap Year not only acknowledges that your version of success looks different from the next person’s (WHICH IS WONDERFUL!) but also encourages it!

One person’s promotion is another’s zip-lining in Costa Rica is another’s afternoon on the couch with Little Fires Everywhere


take note

Regardless, integrity is integrity.

Regardless, joy is joy. Expansion is expansion.
Freedom is freedom. Delight is delight. Restoration is restoration.
Integrity is integrity. 


THROUGH GROWN-UP GAP YEAR, YOU'LL:

how it all works

Think of Grown-Up Gap Year like a Choose Your Own Adventure book

except, instead of navigating bear caves and quicksand, you’re going to step beyond everyone else’s needs to get clear on your own before designing your time around those things you want most. 

FIRST

then

Finally

You'll make space and learn to embrace uncertainty (!!) as you get to know the pillars of radical self-belief. 

You will put the pieces together to create a sustainable system for staying in integrity as you live the most true version of your life.

You'll explore radical self-belief in your life through different you-oriented lenses to see what's possible.

And even though you don’t have to go on a year-long backpacking expedition (amen for not having to share a hostel bathroom with a Danish soccer team, amiright?!), here’s what will be in your Grown-Up Gap Year backpack:

Our live twice-monthly Simmer Sessions (held at different times from our other live calls to accommodate different time zones) are facilitated by me and will give you a chance to share —and celebrate—your wins and aha moments, hear all about how others are integrating this work into their lives, and dive deeper on our monthly topics. 

TWICE-MONTHLY
SIMMER SESSIONS

We'll get to clock some bonus facetime in the three small-group coaching sessions (12 people max!) you'll have with me at the beginning, middle, and end of our year together. These will help you explore these concepts further, imagine more possibilities, and get clarity on your different Grown-Up Gap Year possibilities.

THREE SMALL-GROUP
COACHING SESSIONS

Sometimes you need a little extra support, so this private 45-minute coaching session with me is yours to use at any point during our year together. 

This kit—packed by me and shipped to your door (even internationally!)—includes your Monthly Program Guide, a journal to keep all your learnings in one place, exclusive goodies, and a ton of ways to create visual reminders about why you’ve said yes to exploring all the things you’re doing that are right on the other side of your comfort zone!


Double Dares! Custom Playlists! Prizes in the mail!

Each month, you’ll get ongoing reminders that it's okay to not only hold everything more loosely, but that actual fun is possible too!

***Because changing your life shouldn’t feel like a punishment. 


A PRIVATE Coaching Session WITH ME

grown-up gap year kit

Surprises to Keep Things Fresh & Playful

Delivered straight to your inbox every Monday to help you start the week right, these journal prompt-style considerations are designed to help you start a conversation with yourself. 

Weekly Conversation
Starter Prompts

These are the anchors for the work we’ll be doing together.

Rather than step-by-step formulas, each lesson provides enough structure to keep you focused while also offering freedom to play, change your mind, tinker, and be surprised. 

MONTHLY LIVE TEACHINGS

On our monthly Q+A call, you’ll get to ask me anything about what's holding you back from fully diving into your Grown-Up Gap Year experience—whether you want to talk about strategy, mindset, cultivating delight and serendipity, or exploring our different focuses. 

MONTHLY LIVE Q+A CALLS

Here’s our map for the year:


Because we'll be spending a year together, you'll have time to relax, experiment, and create margins within your explorations. So you’ll finally stop rushing through experiences for the sake of a promised finish line you never seem to reach and instead relax into your own version of presence—even without having hacked the perfect morning routine or meal planning system. 


AND THE MAGICAL PIECE THAT BRINGS EVERYTHING TOGETHER: TIME

Tiffany Han’s secret sauce is making big, important, heavy things feel light and fun and playful…which is why it was no surprise to me that Grown-Up Gap Year was what *finally* helped me disconnect from my Productivity Above All mindset. 

My life now feels slower, calmer, more playful and intentional - and I have lots of tools to help me when I feel tempted to go back to my old ways. I highly recommend a Grown-Up Gap Year if you’re also suffering from a life full of external pressures while yearning for one with internal fulfillment.

- Michelle Ward

"

You'll be able to clearly see:  

  • what’s working
  • what’s not working
  • what you want
  • what you need
  • what you’re ready to let go of 
  • and what you want to turn towards.

What used to be muddy will be wiped clean, clearing the path for you to connect with meaning, purpose, and a new standard of fulfillment. Think of it as Windex for your soul.

This year will give
you a new compass.

Oh, and that doubt piece you’ve worked so hard to beat out of yourself? You’ll learn that it’s just part of being human. Which is why we’ll focus on building your faith muscle instead. 

Remember: you can't effort your way into clarity, peace, and joy. (Which you’ve definitely already tried.)

A year from now, you’ll be so glad you started when you did!

This is a zero-obligation application process, so you don't need to be 100% certain you want a spot to apply. It's just the next step down the road in making your decision.

Here’s what’s possible when you spend a year with me…

This is about really looking within, recognising the truth of yourself and starting to listen to how that inner voice needs to inform how you work and live.

I used to measure my fragile self worth by how productive I was. I was permanently exhausted and full of anxiety but I wore my 'busy-ness' as a badge of honour.

I feel more grounded right now in who I am and how I want to show up than I ever have.

Tiffany really teaches you how to look within for your answers, so that you know how to show up and do what feels good versus what everybody else is telling you you're supposed to do.

She's also taught me a lot about just letting shit go. Like if it doesn't feel good, then don't do it right now. That doesn't mean that you have to throw the idea out the window, but all ideas do not have to come to fruition at the point that they appear. They can marinate for a little while.

It's enabled me to be able to enjoy my life more.

It's definitely helped me show up more confidently and be able to have boundaries when I need to have boundaries and say the hard things when I need to say hard things.

I had a hard conversation this morning. I just wanted to revert to my childlike self and keep quiet instead of saying what needed to be said. I wanted to keep everybody else happy because it's just easier that way.

But I've gotten to a point where it's not easier. Where it eats me up inside, and I have to say that thing. And two years ago, I wouldn't have done that. I would have just kept everybody else happy." — Jessica Harris, former Inner Circler

I've let go of so many habits that were not serving me...and have a much clearer vision of who I want to be and how I can live life on my own terms.


“I've let go of so many habits that were not serving me, become WAY more comfortable listening to my intuition, and have a much clearer vision of who I want to be and how I can live life on my own terms.

My mindset has shifted so much and as a result I've been able to make exhilarating connections between my skills and values, helping me develop my brand and giving me an actual direction to pursue with my work.

I am growing more confident in all areas of my life, speaking up for myself way more, and attracting new friends who are helping to motivate and encourage me. I've simplified my routine and find myself having more time, energy, and mental space to focus on what is most important to me."

This isn't someone's bullshit regime for living a successful life. It isn't 'follow some rules and you'll have everything you want'.


When I realised I didn't have to do all the things all of the time and that my worth wasn't measured in to-do lists, it was a revelation.

I'm learning to be the me I always was, but had lost somewhere along the way.

I don’t feel apologetic about everything anymore. I don’t second guess my decisions or my judgement. I'm trusting that I have the right answers for me and that my own voice is one worth listening to.”

— Sarah Broadbent


"

I've never experienced another program like this.
The value is huge.

Tiffany actually knows who I am and has coached me, which is unheard of in other programs. It's so thoughtful and considers multiple learning styles and allows so many touch points to receive support. It's just really really incredible and a gift she's offering."

You might be thinking that a Grown-Up Gap Year is about embarking on 52 weeks of Life Lite, embracing frivolity with nonsense-filled days that require you to put your family, career, and community priorities to the side. It’s not. 

Instead, it offers a step-by-step way to add ease, delight, radical self-belief, and integrity back into your life… just as it is. Which means you don’t have to burn down everything you’ve worked so hard to build or burden yourself with one more project. 

I wonder if any of these yeah, buts are showing up?

sounds great, aaaand...

Or maybe you’re thinking, oh that sounds awesome, but here’s why this won’t work for me

I’ve got *that thing* coming up this year… you know: wedding, big trip, book to write, cleaning out the garage, the new puppy, huge work event…

My plate is already so full with a, b, c and x, y, z… I have, like, the fullest of full hands.

Can I just do this solo with you? I’m not really into group programs and just want to stop feeling so alone in this journey as soon as possible. 

!

!

!

these reasons are exactly why Grown-Up Gap Year is perfect for you.

What you’ll be doing in this program is establishing a new animating force for yourself—beyond obligation and ambition—that will be the foundation for everything you do. Everything. 

Which means that those things that are both on the horizon and filling your hands right now are perfect opportunities to practice shifting the energy that moves through everything you do... starting now. 

Just imagine how good the wedding, vacation, or clean garage is going to feel when you realize that you didn’t have to play that familiar Everything will be easier/better/more fun just as soon as ________ wraps up game. 

I hear you on that group program thing, too. But I also know that your impulse to go it alone is a symptom of wanting to figure things out and get on with it… quickly and efficiently! (The truth? Nobody goes it alone. I have a dream team that comprises a coach, a therapist, a mastermind, and about 3 ongoing Marco Polo threads with dear friends!)

This is exactly why Grown-Up Gap Year spans an entire year and is structured as a group program: because learning how to slow down is a huge piece of the puzzle you’re looking to put together, and there’s tremendous power in being able to put together said puzzle in community with others who are also assembling puzzles of their own. 

Oh, and just in case you’re thinking you’re too old to do something like this...

...I want you to know that your timing is perfect for this work. 

It's actually great that you’re doing this now—as an adult who’s had so many experiences and figured so much out. You get to bring your maturity and your ability to make good choices into this experience and redesign your life starting now. 

And I'm certain you’ve still got a lot of living to do, and you don’t have to stop being successful and go back to the life of a backpacking 19-year-old to explore what’s possible, find your path, and figure out what fulfillment and fun mean to you. 

And the icing on your Grown-Up Gap Year cake? You'll have me as your guide, for the entire year.

I'm Tiffany Han.
You can call me Coach.

In Grown-Up Gap Year, you aren’t passed off to other moderators and coaches. It’s me. With you. For the duration of our year together. 

In Grown-Up Gap Year, you aren’t passed off to other moderators and coaches. 

When you have your small-group calls, they’re with me. I lead the Q+A calls. I teach the lessons. I facilitate our Simmer Sessions. You'll meet with me for your 1-on-1 session, and I'll write your love note when I package up your kit.

It’s me. With you. For the duration of our year together. 

The glossy answer:

I love my life AND have the experience and credentials to back up what I teach...

I’ve spent most of my twelve coaching years asking people, “What do you really want?” and then helping them design their lives around the answer—from starting businesses, closing businesses, speaking uncomfortable truths, taking bold risks, and raising their hands and saying yes.

I’ve worked with people from grad students to professional (and aspiring) artists to professors to account executives to retirees, and while the circumstances of their lives might look completely different on the outside, the things they’re telling themselves about their experiences are universal. 

And theIR relief UPON realizing they aren’t the only oneS is palpable. 

While working with me, clients have made little moves and they’ve made major moves, but no matter what those moves look like on the outside, what matters most is that they’ve shifted into lives that feel good on the inside. 

And while your personal shift will start with an uncomfortable slowing down, the freight train won’t stay stopped at the station forever. This experience will actually lead you to more power, success, and flow in everything you do down the road. 

More fun, more ease, and more effectiveness… Sounds like I want you to have your cake and eat it too, right?

That’s exactly what I want. 

Beyond just my professional experience, I’ve also poured what I’ve learned from addressing my own needs into Grown-Up Gap Year. 

From my sobriety and recovery (over five years sober!) to parenting to learning how to heal my nervous system to embracing my ADHD and neurodivergence, I know all about what it’s like to be killing it on the outside while feeling like you’re not really living on the inside.

In fact, despite being known for helping people raise their hands and say yes and doing the from-the-outside brave and courageous things, I’ve learned that actually putting your hand down and saying no for a while is the key to living a different kind of brave life.

One that’s less about making big, bold moves and more about slowing down and aligning who you are on the inside with what you’re doing on the outside instead of hoping you can tend to yourself once you’re on the other side of the busy. 

One that’s about saying out loud that things aren’t working even if everyone else thinks that they are. 

And one that takes the controversial stance that no amount of success is worth you feeling like a stand-in for your life. 

  • I make space to feel my feelings. 

  • I say things out loud. 

  • I know what I want.
    (And when I don’t? I trust it will come instead of white-knuckling my way to insight.)

  • I tell the truth. 

  • I meet myself where I am. With grace. And faith. And discernment.

  • I practice radical self-belief, not because I have a big ego that says I’m never wrong, but because I deeply trust myself and my intuition, even though things don't always go as planned. 

AND The THINGS that are impossible to see from the headlines? 

I WANT ALL OF THIS FOR YOU TOO.

APPLY

And I don’t want you to hold yourself to these unreasonable—and completely unreachable—standards for another minute, much less another year.

Because this is your life.
Your life. YOUR LIFE.

But why participate in this program? Why now? 

We are so well trained by the world and culture and society and all these systems of oppression to hit pause on truly living our lives in order to check things off our lists and fit ourselves into predetermined boxes (with the promise that we’ll be happy someday) that we don’t even realize the expectations we’re working so hard to live up to are bullshit. 

In fact, we’re so well conditioned that we eventually internalize these undefined and unsustainable expectations as our own. 

Here’s the truth about crushing all your goals: sometimes there are still things missing. 

Sometimes you inadvertently get good at pretending everything’s fine. 

Sometimes knowing that something needs to change isn’t enough because what does change even look like right now?

And sometimes you need to learn how to slow down and re-orient yourself to a new compass direction. 

Beyond hustling to make every moment count, I want to invite you into a different way of walking through your world. One wherein every moment actually does count because you’re showing up to it deliberately and as your most true, full self. 

We are so well trained by the world and culture and society and all these systems of oppression to hit pause on truly living our lives in order to check things off our lists and fit ourselves into predetermined boxes (with the promise that we’ll be happy someday) that we don’t even realize the expectations we’re working so hard to live up to are bullshit. 

In fact, we’re so well conditioned that we eventually internalize these undefined and unsustainable expectations as our own. 

This is your one life.
And beyond just living it,
I want you to love   it.

*Let’s be clear: I’m not talking about a rom-com kind of loving it where everything’s all unicorns and rainbows and happily-ever-after arrives right after a mad dash to the airport to tell Paul Rudd that he had you at Clueless. I’m talking about the kind of love that’s true. And expansive. And empowering. And real. 

I’m talking about belly laughs and late-night conversations and heartache and days that are both hard and heart-affirming because being a human means experiencing the full spectrum of emotion and connection and feeling. It’s about so much more than how much you’re getting done and succeeding at “living your best life.”

My goal for you is that no matter the circumstances, you are still engaged in your life, and show up as an active participant in the sacred dance that comes with being a big-dreaming, enthusiastic, longing, made-of-stardust human.

A year from now, you’ll be so glad you started when you did!

HERE'S WHAT'S POSSIBLE:

This gap year is all about you, you, you. And it doesn't require anything except the willingness to free fall and choose your own adventure.

As much as I can't technically free myself from my family, it has been pretty awesome to be on a secret gap year mission. I appreciate all of the ideas that allow me to find moments in my day to be awesome and make choices that let me be me."

— Elizabeth Simms

"

Grown-Up Gap Year offers the mentality of a gap year— freedom, exploration, expansion—and it also takes into account that we have responsibilities and commitments and that Adulting is a juggling act.

It embraces the WHOLE life experience and encourages you to design your own idea of what the intention of a gap year means to you. I love it so much, and I'm so glad I invested in myself in this way. It's provided such inspiration and support at the moments when I need those things most."

— Elizabeth Brunetti

"

I am so much closer to being my own biggest fan.

I have begun to trust myself in a way I have not before. This is personal growth work without too much woo-woo that can be as big or as little as you need to be."

—Erin Harris

"

Grown-Up Gap Year feels like infinite permission slips to revel in the good of life and infuse delight into what could be mundane or hard moments.

It's not about doing less; it's about feeling more and paying closer attention. I'm surprised by how much my "give grace to myself" muscles have strengthened. My self-talk is growing more positive and curious. I'm much less likely to jump to pessimistic conclusions before I've even tried something. 

Grown-Up Gap Year has been a gentle guide when days/weeks are wobbly. And, I've confirmed that I love washi tape and colorful highlighters."

— Naya Bricher

"

Grown-Up Gap Year has been the reset I didn't know I needed.

Tiffany has a great way of helping you hear hard things in a way that you actually want to listen. She guides and nurtures her gap year ladies through the deep, murky waters of ambiguity. Though you're not always sure where you're going, you trust that you're on the right journey even if there's not always a visible path."

—Katie Garry

"

I do less and feel great about it. I breathe more. I have dance parties in my kitchen. There is a different way to do this—a way that feels good and doesn't require me to push or hustle or contort myself. 


What surprised me (and continues to surprise me) is the paradoxical, slow-drip nature of Grown-Up Gap Year. Paradoxes like slowing down in the face of urgency, playing to find serious solutions, turning toward the challenges. And doing them little by little over the course of the year has gotten them into my bones in a way that just reading a book or doing a short workshop wouldn't—even if all the information was shared! 

—Susan McCulley

"

I now have the tools to take a step back from life’s chaos and care for myself in ways that bring a deep sense of peace and space.

Small moments of noticing things within me have brought about a wonderful sense of allowance and surrender and a solid sense of being grounded.

Every month and every week I looked forward to hearing from Tiffany. She helps you give yourself permission to discover and do what you really want im the midst of all of life’s busy-ness. Listening to her feels like a deep breath of fresh air and if you want to hit pause on your life without having the actual luxury of doing so, GUGY is a wonderful experience to help you navigate life and see things differently so that you can thrive while embracing life’s abundance and obstacles."

—Ines McNeil

"

Grown Up Gap Year has helped me see, feel, understand, remember, and embody two critical things: 1. I can do this (whatever this is), and 2. There is no "right way," there is only "right for me right now.

Grown-Up Gap Year is like a friend holding your hand walking you toward your most true and beautiful life."

Aaaand finally, some A’s to your frequently-asked Q’s:

I’m working full time, finishing up my master’s degree, and raising my three kids. Can I actually do this? Will this still work for me?

I’m working full time, finishing up my master’s degree, and raising my three kids. Can I actually do this? Will this still work for me?

Newton’s First Law tells us that a body in motion will remain in motion unless acted upon by an external force. And what I know about striving is that it’s hard to change things without saying yes to that external force. 

GUGY is your external making those changes even though they’re uncomfortable force. And it’s necessary because it’s way too easy to stay in the churn of doing that’s so familiar. 

Also, what you and I both know is this: If you’re willing to say yes to this different kind of work, this YOU kind of work, the outcome will be so so so worth it.

When you’re so good at striving, the beginning of any change will usually look like either serious recovery or loads of resistance. When you’re not accustomed to pausing and slowing down, you might feel really itchy and uncomfortable at first.  
 
But if you bailed then, we'd never get to the good stuff like the curiosity, the inquiry, and then the insight. (Which leads to so much more magic!)


What if I'm having a hard time imagining what all of this could actually look like in my life?

What if I'm having a hard time imagining what all of this could actually look like in my life?

The truth is that so many of us are in this boat. We’ve been taught that if we just work hard enough at handling all the things, we’ll finally get to the holy grail place of...what?...enoughness? Ease? Rest? Expansion? Freedom? Radiant Technicolor?

We keep being told that our chance to revel in the good bits of life will come later. When our tasks are handled. When we get to the end of our (never-ending) lists. When they stop tapping us on the shoulder to do one more thing. 

Instead of trying to know all the answers before we start, here’s what I propose for everyone who joins Grown-Up Gap Year:

Come into the experience paying full attention to your longings. 

Give them space to grow, instead of deciding that now’s not a good time. 

Let yourself dig deeper into what you want so that you can find the nuance and the richness.

Play, experiment, and embrace any uncertainty that shows up as a path to new—and maybe even surprising—knowings.

Gah! A whole year?! With no ambition? What if it's uncomfortable? What if I can't keep up? What am I supposed to do—just not care about any of the things I care about?

Gah! A whole year?! With no ambition? What if it's uncomfortable? What if I can't keep up? What am I supposed to do—just not care about any of the things I care about?

Oh, I get this sentiment so much. Here are a few things I want you to know: 

Yes. A whole year. Because you need time for restoration. To make space for learning. To practice your new way of being. To get caught up in life and remember to come back to yourself. To have wobbles and find your footing again.

I'm definitely not saying to ditch your ambition. Instead, I want to teach you to redefine success so it includes peace, space, delight, and ease. (Staying beholden to your ambition at the expense of how life feels isn't working….and I think you know that too.)

You will be uncomfortable! In the best kind of way!

This world needs your ambition, your ideas, your creative drive, and your willingness to actually make change rather than just thinking about it. And: part of what you'll get to learn in our year together is how to show up differently so that you actually have more energy for what you most care about. 

I feel like I’m drowning. Is this right for me?

I feel like I’m drowning. Is this right for me?

Does the drowning feel temporary and circumstantial or is it chronic? For the former, go ahead and submit an application! If it’s the latter, this work is probably not a great fit for where you are right now. 

If you’ve living in a permanent uber-overwhelmed space, it’s unlikely that you’ll be able to actually make space for this work, which will only lead you to more frustration and overwhelm. 

Instead, I’d recommend that you spend the next year working to shift the things that are keeping you here (if you need a jumping off point, check out eps. 331, 335, 347, 359, and 374 of my podcast!), and revisit GUGY when the next round rolls around in 2023.

Wait, I have more Qs!

Wait, I have more Qs!

No problem! Email me: tiffany@tiffanyhan.com or reach out to me on voxer (I'm @thetiffanyhan).

Or go ahead and complete your no-obligation application! There’s a spot for you to ask any questions that might be lingering and I’ll get an answer to you as soon as I can. There’s no commitment in completing the application, and you just might learn something about yourself (and what you’re ready to say yes to in the process!).



And now, let me turn the tables and ask you a final Q:

How would your life look and feel different—right now, today—if you were firmly rooted in radical self- belief and made all your decisions from that place? 

How would your life look and feel different —right now, today—if you showed up to everything (the good, the bad, the miraculous, the ugly!) remembering that you’re a wildly creative person who’s smart and infinitely capable, and let that energy inform everything. 


OH YES. Learning to live from that place is your next frontier, Sweets. 

Since you’ve made it this far, I’ve got a little love note for you: 


You deserve to have all the things you want for your life. 

It’s not selfish to want to do this work; it’s absolutely necessary. 

The fact that you’ve made it to the bottom of this page, tells me that you’re hungry.

For a different way of being. For a better way of being. For a more true way of being in your life. 

Maybe your fear is kicking in right now, asking, but what if you do this and lose your edge? 

Maybe your doubt is wondering if this will be one more course you sign up for, but get too busy to follow through on. 

Maybe your Inner Critic is saying you’re not even allowed to want this. 

And maybe, just maybe, you’re still holding out hope of finding your just right way amidst the black and white thinking that insists you can either only be running 120 mph or completely disengaged in your life. 

Whatever the case may be, I want you to hold on to that hunger whether you decide to apply for Grown-Up Gap Year. 

I want you to know that you don't need more rigor, discipline, self-control, or a new planner. 

I want you to know there's an invisible cost to all the restraint that the world has us convinced is just how things are. 

And I want you to know that amazing, gorgeous things are possible for you. 

I’d love to spend the year with you teaching you how to explore, experiment, and wonder.

It’s going to be beautiful. 

If you’re nodding or crying or still reading even though a younger version of you would have already popped back to IG by now, I urge you to apply. 

There’s no obligation to join if you’re accepted, and I guarantee that the application alone will be eye-opening for you. 

Any q’s? There’s a place in the application for those too.
