To find your way with your soulful business, you must find YOUR way of doing things. Plain and simple. That's part of the deal when you have a business that is part of your spiritual evolution.
This isn't about thinking things through and forcing your ideas, it's about learning to work with the energy of your business to recognize how you must do what you do, so it works. The learning is all about trusting yourself so you and your soulful biz thrive.
Soulpreneur Business Tip: how to create your business so it and you THRIVE
The very first business coaching experience I had was, well, traumatic.
I've had years to process this experience; much insight has come from it. Here are 3 lessons I learned that have helped me in my work and in helping others create their soulful business.
May they help you think about your own business, and how you want to help it to grow.
I love to work with women who are on the verge of doing scary things... stepping into themselves and their business in more truthful ways.
And that is scary and so powerful. I will always stand with you as you open to that.
And in this coaching world where we get bombarded with messages of "go big" and put yourself out there - be a badass - it's easy in all the rushing to forget that to evolve in this way requires an inward journey, time, and a whole lot of bravery.
This post is about going on that journey.Read More
Feeling stuck? I bet the last thing you feel at this moment is creative… playful. Right? You’re bound up in whatever is going on so how the heck are you supposed to let go and let your creative imagination take you into new information?
It’s important to access your own creativity when you feel stuck, it’s the way out. There are ways. I share a few in this post and the video I share here. Creativity is our saving grace. And the creativity that comes with your intuitive imagination is your best tool for accessing what’s on the other side of stuck.Read More
How do you manage your to-do list?⠀
I'll tell ya. Lately, the to-do list in my head has been long. Like this kind of long 📜.⠀
At times it can feel overwhelming. I know you know this. I am sure you've stared down your own list from time to time. ⠀
I have a trick, a way of managing the list... and the anxiety. It's how I focus on my mini-list, the things I will do on any given day.⠀And in this post, I’ll tell you how it works!
Sticky notes. They hold transformative power. I know people who have sticky notes all over their house with affirmations. Not me. In fact check out the blog for why I am not a fan of affirmations. But I do use sticky notes to help me uplevel my mindset and my vibe. Here’s how…Read More
There is a magical moment where your energy comes into a place of trust before you fully know the who, what, when and how. There's a tipping point where when you say things like, "I believe this" or "and so it is," you actually stop energetically negating it. This is where you need to get to with your soulful business.Read More
Have you ever been in that state of awareness where one part of you is swimming upstream and the other is connected into the flow? That’s me at the moment.
And so this morning I did what I do, what I teach the women in my Insight Groups to do.
I sat down and had a long chat with my business and my guides so I could re-find balance and get the necessary insight to move ahead in a more aligned way.
The Universe had a few things to say, here’s what happened…Read More
What do you want people to know about you? The folks who connect to your work in the world?⠀
A friend of mine asked me this once. It's become my favorite question. It can help you to simplify the "what" you do by dropping you into clear focus.⠀
So often when we feel lost in what we do and how we should do it, we get too complicated. Coming back to this question can help you create clarity. Here’s how it worked for me.⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀Read More
The world needs you. We hear that as coaches and healers all the time. It’s mean to inspire, I guess. For me? It creates tension. I drives me crazy.
When it comes to your work, does the world need you? Yeah. But not because you gotta coach a zillion people and change the world because of it. But for an entirely different reason. Read on, I’ll explain.Read More
Is this is my imagination, or is this real? Almost everyone I’ve ever worked with has questioned if the information they’re connecting with - via their intuition - is real or made up. That’s normal. If you’re working with your intuition and inner wisdom, your brain is gonna wonder if it’s all in your head. So let’s talk about trusting your intuition. Do you trust that, no matter the means by which it came?
I share a story here about the journey you need to go on to get your answers, and how to create the trust you need to know what’s real.Read More
I spend a lot of time talking with the consciousness of my work and my business. And, if you are a soul-preneuer I can't tell you enough how learning to spend time chatting with your business and work can change you... and what you do.
This past weekend I sat with my work and my business and I had one question for them. The healing journey they took me on was powerful. I share that with you here.
Usually when I talk about communicating with my business and my work for guidance, what get's people wanting to know how to do this themselves is that it becomes clear that there's a relationship that I have with these energies. And, most especially, the energy of my work.
It's true. I feel as though I do have a long-term, loving relationship with "who" I know my work and biz to be. They are two very different energies from each other. And they are also very much not me.
And this past weekend, they took me on a healing journey that I needed. That’s the power of being in relationship with the consciousness of your work.Read More
The image above is a painting I did this time last year which conveyed the energy I was feeling. Being more visible and expressing my "joyful noise" was what I was bringing into 2018.
I was full of ideas. I thought I understood the message, so I rolled with it. (More like rolled right over it.)
I mapped out what my business was going to be. There was going to be this year-long women's group and monthly healing group-work. There were podcasts and posts to be written and client work that extended out a little longer than I had usually done... to do more work.
On the surface, it all seemed great. But to be honest, I think I was moving ahead with those ideas because I didn't know what else to do. They were the things we all do, what we're supposed to do. They matched the noise out there of "grow your business." But as I learned, that energy is nowhere to be found in the energy of my work and business.
This post is about how I learned to work with my business and my work this year. How so much of the planning and doing was for naught. And, how I am taking what I learned and offering it to you.Read More
This year, Winter has been pulling me inward; into the quiet. Winter will do that, get us thinking about the deep stuff. The stuff that rises up and asks to be worked with. And damn it if this old energy of mine of withholding - protecting and keeping things private and safe - hasn't circled back around to say hello.
But I have a way of working with this - a creative means to get to the energy and the healing… the insight needed to allow the story to unfold and evolve. To move beyond. I share this here with you.Read More
"What do you want to do... where do you want to be in 10 years?" she asked. Me? I said, "I don't know."
And then I got an earful about how you NEVER tell someone you don't know what you want.
That was 30-some years ago, my last day of college. I was having breakfast with Peggy Charren, the Founder of Action for Children's Television, where I interned.
I really didn't know what I wanted because I was sensing something "else" despite spending much of the past 4 years thinking I'd get into TV or film or documentaries.
So there I was; sitting with a woman I admired, in shock, because I said 3 little words: I. Don't. Know.
Those 11:11:11 graphics and posts have been flowing through my social media feed over the last several days, talking about the energy… the portal. And me? I scrolled on by.
It’s not that I don’t believe that there are energetic shifts that transform us collectively, I’m just not that connected these days to these cosmic “events” that so often get people oohing and aahing. I think people get sucked into the idea of “portals” and “activations” without knowing how to sink into their own energetic experience and follow their internal guidance.
So, when I started seeing all those posts, I moved on. I kept doing what I always do, which is to notice what I notice energetically and do my best to move with that in my own way.
But that’s not to say that the 11:11 magic didn’t happen 😉Read More
It’s true. I’m a creative process junkie; a lover of personal process. And today I’m going to stop pretending that’s not important to me.
Sometimes it takes us a long time to recognize something about ourselves. For me, it’s this, that I love to dive into creative, intuitive process work. It’s my gift… my jam.
It’s not to only focus on the fun stuff of personal change, but a means to get to meaty information that truly changes me. It’s the information I need to then take aligned action.
And what I am coming around to here is that this is the thing I do that offers up the most value to me in life, and to those I work with. I let this get lost there for a while. But it’s back… big time. ;)
Here’s a bit of the story.Read More
I sit. I sit and listen within for my own wisdom... and then act. That's my starting place these days with any goal or budding idea. If you learn to do this, and let it be your “go to” way of operating it will change you. It will move you into more clarity, clear guidance and even your purpose.Read More
Energetic boundaries are more than simply protecting from unwanted energy. A lot more. It's an internal energetic direction you set by being clear in your energy. And it's a huge part of how you manifest.
Not creating what you want in the world? Having trouble getting what you want to happen? Take a look at this. It could be a boundary issue, and it may be time to think about your energetic boundaries in a whole new way.Read More
At the moment we have a lot of input pouring in to light a fire for you to create a new output. Today is a full moon, a super long full lunar eclipse, and Mercury (and a bunch of other planets) are retrograde.
So if it feels like you're circling around in a shit-storm at the moment, you are not alone. Just remember, challenges help move you into something new. They're part of you creating a breakthrough.
Creating a breakthrough is about the energetic/emotional process work that you need to do to create that up-leveling... that new energetic stance in the world that will land you squarely in the vibe you need to own whatever is next for you.
It's not you just jumping into what's next. So let’s talk about creating a breakthrough, then what you do.Read More
