Let’s go back and think about why you started your holistic business in the first place. You were inspired by a healing modality, or starting your service based business and loved doing the work, but saw right away that there was so much to do, and found yourself getting frustrated with all you had to figure out on your own. It was taking you away from helping people. Maybe you hired an assistant, created a website, started doing networking. Maybe you were even excited to get out on your own.
But you didn’t like the marketing part.
Worse than that, you didn’t even WANT to do any marketing. You found yourself fumbling when you had to talk about or define the work you do, because you knew it was so much more than words can express.
Maybe you bought a program, a blueprint for how to create systems in your business, even hired an assistant to help you with the details and the technological things, but everything just started to feel awkward and inauthentic. So you dropped the ball. You met people but didn’t follow up much. You stopped doing introductions or even inquiring about where you could speak.
You saw the on-line world escalate wildly, but didn’t feel comfortable so you weren’t doing the things you KNEW were important to increase visibility and sales.
Oh, and the sales itself just felt yucky. You could barely get the price out of your mouth when people sincerely wanted to know.
Your confidence could probably use a boost. But there’s even more than confidence. There is courage, clarity, and BEING the excited, vibrant representative of your business too. Here is the good news... you can start to take your “calling” to a whole new level, while being calm and centered and completely true to yourself and your values. Follow along with these three easy and very doable steps, and you will rest easier tonight!
The #1 KEY to mastering your business and manifesting effortlessly, is aligning your values with the work that you are most meant to do.
It is hand-in-glove when that happens. And a little torturous when it doesn’t. Is Freedom your most cherished value? Family? Speaking your Truth? Service?
When you don't connect consciously with your values, you find yourself spinning your wheels, or even find yourself spinning out of control, never even finding the papers or files you created to make your signature talk, busying yourself with non-essential or superficial things because you are not connected to "WHY I DO THIS".
Why do you do this? Why did you start in the first place? Why did it matter to you?
A secret for getting to know your "why" is to ask yourself what makes you mad. What breaks your heart. What do you rant about endlessly? This sounds a bit counter-intuitive, but when your emotions are rising about things you are passionate about changing, you are getting close to what you most care about.
And chances are that you have a solution for this, in your own life and also for others.
Let me give you an example. Years ago I got divorced from a man I really loved. Our problem was money, and we fought about it constantly. I couldn't, didn't have any power what-so-ever to get my husband to change his habits, and we were going down with the ship. I felt powerless, and with no voice. And because of that, I lost the most important person in my life. I couldn't take the frustration anymore and just walked out.
Then I was on my own completely. The insecurity was terrible. The loss was heart-breaking. But I slowly got myself back on track on my own, and eventually realized that the biggest mistake I had made all along, was that I had given my power away. This included my awareness, my ability to create change for both of us, courage to take charge when he was faltering. I was wrapped up in his paranoia, and couldn't be the beacon that I know now would have seen us through the hard times.
Now I am passionate about not letting that happen to other women. I coach them to stand in their power, speak their truth, and be way-showers for others. No victims here. Take 100% responsibility for their lives and the power they have to create magic.
I took the most painful experience in my life, and learned to stop creating the problem. And I know I help women with this issue. they tell me how much I am able to help them turn that pain around in their lives. It was my big "why"...learning to stand in my truth and in turn help others so that they don't have to suffer like I did and lose what they love.
