Three important lessons I've learned in creating my business

Creating a business as a solo-preneur can be tricky, despite all the “how-to” offerings from the business coaching world.

It’s actually taken me years, and I do mean years, to come to recognize what I needed to do to make this business of mine work. And it’s not that I didn’t reach out for help along the way. I did. It just wasn’t the right kind of help. In fact, a lot of the help I got that was supposed to give me the plan for making things work actually did more harm in my mind; it took me off the path I needed to be on.

But I guess there are no real wrong turns because I learned a lot about what I needed to focus on instead, for my business to work. And that’s taught me a lot about how I can help you with your business, especially if you don’t quite resonate with the “typical” coaching models that seem to be made to fit everyone.

There were a few big learnings on this journey of mine, which made all the difference in the world in my bringing my business to light. Here they are…

Bravery and creating a healing business.

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.

How do you manage your to-do list?⠀

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!

I got a message from the universe today all about how things work.

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…

What do you want people to know about you?

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.⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀

Can the consciousness of your business guide you to heal? Yes.

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.

Why I'm not going to tell you to "go big" this year. In fact, just the opposite.

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.

Where do you want to be in 10 years?

"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.

Hi. My Name is Stacy and I'm a Creative Process Junkie.

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.

How Clear Energetic Boundaries Help You Manifest What You Love.

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.

Today the moon renews itself. It might be time for you to do the same.

Realize that your need for more aligned work is a spiritual shift.

If you can see your need to grow for what it is – you taking a step in your own spiritual evolution to reposition yourself into more authenticity, personal power and purpose – you can use the energy behind this level of growth to fuel the process.

It's easy to stall-out on this level of your personal and spiritual growth for fear of stepping into work that asks you to be more. It shows up as not knowing what you want or how to make it happen.

How to Make a New Energetic Choice.

"We all have to do things we don't want to do."

I grew up hearing that. It usually was in the context to work. We all have to do things we don't want to do... as in that job you need to have. So honey, suck it up.

That message created a strong reference point for me. It influenced my thoughts and actions… it still does.

But I get to choose if it will take me down. I get to create a new energetic choice.

Here’s how I do it…

Learning to Be Your Authentic You.

It's amazing how separated we can feel from our authentic selves - the truth of who we are - and how that then leads us to make choices that don't fuel our own spiritual evolution.

When we can’t see ourselves for who we are and stand in the power of our own needs, dreams, desires, and gifts, we simply go nowhere. When there is a deep need, buried within, to be DOING something that is meaningful that helps us at a soul level to expand and grow and give, then our true selves must be freed to do that. Otherwise, we circle around and around.

This post might give you a way to begin to shift that.
