This is my story for my business, but feel free to insert your desire for growing in a relationship, expanding your spirituality or even embarking on a new adventure that could be professionally or personally.
Golden Nugget #1: Align with the Right People
I would say a big turning point for me was when I started to align myself with mentors, teachers and colleagues who were further along than I was and/or who also knew things that I just didn't! (If I were to get super real with you, some of the things that I struggled with in the beginning were:
*charging for my services and knowing WHAT to charge
*discerning who I wanted to work with (trusting that I truly deserved to only work with the best, most ideal clients that I could do my best work with vs. taking on everyone even if they weren't an energetic "fit")
*technology and building my first website
*using social media (Facebook terrified me and Twitter terrified me even more!)
*marketing and promoting myself and what I had to offer from a heart space vs. feeling slimy or like I was "selling"
Golden Nugget #2: When You Invest From Your Intuition, You Get Massive Returns
I could have spent tons of time at this point on books, CD's with the "experts" in any of the fields above that terrified me.
But, I know myself well enough. I'm not a very patient person when it comes to certain things. And when it came to getting my message out there and helping people with my gifts and talents, I wanted it SOONER rather than later.
I wanted someone to just tell me exactly how to do what I didn't know or was scared of in the most efficient, FUN way possible. So, when I came across a website that said "Rich, Happy and Hot B-School" everything in my body started to tingle. I had no idea who Marie Forleo was (she was soon to be become one of my most influential mentors and teachers). It just felt RIGHT and more than that, it was an ONLINE business school that was a fraction of the cost of a regular MBA (like probably 1000X less) and it actually sounded FUN. (That's one of my actual life principles!)
Check it out:
Along with my Angel Therapy certification with Doreen Virtue, B-school was the biggest (and I consider) one of the most IMPORTANT investments I ever made for myself both personally and professionally. I'm not ashamed to say I didn't just take this program ONCE. I am actually taking it AGAIN this round which will be my THIRD time! I did the payment plan and I just KNEW I would not only make the money I invested back, but that I would easily double it from the information I would learn.
And after just my first round in the program, I'm proud to say I:
*was no longer scared of creating or hiring someone to make me a website
*knew EXACTLY who my ideal people were and where I could find them (and where they could find me)
*let go of guilt around charging for my services and DOUBLED my client base (and let go of the energy drainers with grace!)
*felt more ALIVE, more confident and more ENERGIZED
*finally got CLARITY on how I could really help people using things that came naturally to me
(I always thought I had to work HARD vs. using what was already inside me)
*premium business contacts who I would collaborate with in the future
*made new friends who "got" me and help me stay on track so I don't get overwhelmed or feel isolated
Sound like something YOU want too? Marie just opened registration TODAY!
She just posted a FAQ so you'll get ALL your questions answered before you see if it's even right for you.
Golden Nugget #3 Be Clear in Your Intentions: The WHY
When you can be clear in WHY you want something, then the Universe can deliver you clear matching energy in the form of the right people, opportunities, extra time, funds, etc.
So, what do YOU want? And WHY do you want it?
Is it coming from a Soul/loving/intuitive desire or an Ego-driven one?
If it's the first, you're GOLDEN and doors will open <3
I'll end with my intentions as a example:
I had 3 major intentions in posting this:
1) To answer your questions/shed light on my own process to help you clarify YOURS
2) To share an opportunity (RHH online) that I truly feel could be the ideal fit for some of you who benefit from an organized, Ego-free way of learning from the best vs. having to do it all yourself
3) Let you know that If it DOES feel like a fit, if you use my affiliate link to sign yourself up below,
----help make it possible for me to offer 2 full-tuition SCHOLARSHIPS to 2 students who are talented healers and want to enroll in the Angel Reiki™ Online Certification Program I offer twice a year, but who are struggling financially
