I know. You have been through the ringer with all of the marketing coaching, the business-building strategies, the promises that coaches have made you feel are the last-best-hope of creating your heart-based business for passion and profit.
I've been there too. Spending countless thousands of dollars on blueprints, home-study products, social media magic pills....you get the picture.
What I have done is to go back to my true inner guidance on all of this. I had to scrap everything and start over. Feelings of failure aside, it was also a big mess. I changed the name of my company three times, each time being totally excited that "Yes, this is it!" only to realize later that there was no "business" there. the people didn't really want what I had to offer them. Not in that format.
I have spent 30 years in the healing arts, and when I was ready to get out and share what I thought was the best of the best with my potential peeps, it just landed on deaf ears. I didn't have it afterall.
So this is what I did. I rolled up my sleeves, and took the deep dive inside. I made a decision that whatever my soul's gifts are would be authentic, natural, and in service to others. I didn't care anymore whether anyone said they wanted to work with me. It really had to come to that.
I had to come home to my self, to my soul, and what my true mission is completely outside of whether anyone cared or not. I had to give myself the self-care first that set me up on a solid foundation of truthfulness, and not trying to be a copy of the latest ideas of the big guys.
Those coaches GOT big by connecting with something that they had to give, that came easily to them, that came in the voice they had to share the material through, and because they were 100% in alignment with what they had to share. Oh, and they were there at the beginning of the coaching craze...I know because I knew a few 7 figure coaches when THEY were in debt and just starting out! One of them lived in my town!
Now the first thing I thought, was "well if she can do it so brazenly, why can't I "? Not such a smart bit of logic there. What created the perfect storm of someone else's success is NEVER going to work for me! Because I don't live through the lens of their point of view, their circumstances and opportunities, and my way of passing through the "dark night of the soul" is completely my own!
But my history is pretty special in it's own right. Let me tell you a little about me. I was a very emotional, poetic, and passionate kid. I played the piano in salons when I was 10 years old. I was slated for a life as a concert musician. I even started college as a music major.
But then I found dance. It was my passion. I couldn't not dance! I started ditching music classes to do improvization, which at the time I thought was the most magical thing ever. I attended modern dance concerts, choreographed, and eventually moved to New York City to try my luck at the big time. (More later)
