When I first started out as a coach and healer I have to admit, my vibe was not as high as it is now. Being an entrepreneur takes a lot of work in many different areas of your life. And it can throw you for a loop when you least expect it.
One of the most important factors of your business is your MINDSET.
Going into this newest venture I felt like my mindset was pretty strong. No actually I thought it was Teflon! I have said it before and I’ll say it again….I can be a little stubborn. Just a little...
In all honesty, I will tell you that the entrepreneurial journey will test you like no other! I thought to myself, I’ve been practicing mindfulness for almost 20 years and have been so active in the self-development world, I’ll be FINE. I had many strategies and they were all tested. Some of them failed.
In the beginning of my business, I had so many triggers.
Social Media was like a freaking mine field of emotions! I became competitive and someone who was frankly NOT ME. It was ugly. I felt it and I couldn’t look away. I started to become bitter. I was often angry.
I used to sink into the thoughts:
“Why weren’t they hiring me?”
“Don’t they know how talented and smart I am?”
“Don’t they know that I am the only Woo in the village!”
I wasn't the person I wanted to be. And there was only one person who can change it.....ME!
Everything was coming from scarcity and not abundance. I couldn’t see that it didn’t matter if my friend was a healer or coach too; there was ENOUGH for all of us. Each one of us have a flavor and style that people gravitate towards. And that’s okay. We attract clients not chase.
The more I asked myself those questions above, why aren’t they this or that, the more I was pushing everyone away from me. My energy was funky and frenetic. And DESPERATE!
I don’t tell you all of this to scare you out of your journey or judge you.
I tell you this so if you can relate, you know you are NOT alone!
That was the hardest thing for me. I didn’t want to admit I was struggling (remember, I am stubborn, just a little) and the more I didn’t want to admit it, the more I struggled. Finally I just said, “Oh fuck this! This is silly. All humans struggle at some point. Ask for help Andrea”
And I dove in rather than avoid the pain. I did some deep inner work. I went to see some healers and NLP practitioners, the exact services I offer. Because sometimes it is just too close to home. My mindset is what got me to that point and I needed someone to reflect back to me the ridiculousness and help me find the way out of it. Ultimately, it was up to me. I had to do the work. I had to show up.
And oh my stars, did the love and support and NON-JUDGMENT feel GOOD!! It was liberating!
I reminded myself of my Gratitude practice and I didn’t let myself slip. Not for one day! I went all in with it.
Gratitude saved my life and business. It saved my marriage. It saved my kids. It saved my wallet. It saved my everything. And I am not talking about blind gratitude. You know, the empty thank yous. I am talking the feel it so hard in your heart you beautiful cry.
There is enough for all of us.
YOU are wealthy.
YOU are abundant.
YOU are magic.
If you are struggling, please don’t suffer in silence.
Reach out to someone who can help you and please check out my services to see if we might even be a match. I’d be happy to help you reach your personal summit from a space of love and non-judgment.
A year ago I dove into my intuitive work and started doing readings for money for the first time ever. I'd been reading intuitively for 20 years, but finally felt the pull to do it as a business.
I am going to talk about why it is important to have people in your life who fan your flames as Will Smith says.
I am also going to share the responsibility YOU and I have in making sure we create that for ourselves.
Flash forward to last summer....I hired a coach....she said, "don't worry about the cards and Woo factor...what is the result your produce?" I understood what she was saying but definitely did not feel like she "got" what I was creating, my vision, and my WHY.
That is 100% fine because I am the creator of my life and dreams. And there is nothing wrong with her perception or opinions or even if she didn't believe in the Woo. It is my job to make sure I am surrounded by those who support me and my mission.
Coaching really is about being a fit and match for both parties.
Through that experience I explored offering coaching a little more. I love coaching and had been doing that for a number of years, but I kept feeling the pull back to the Woo even if I was coaching.
Flash forward a little farther down the line and I worked with another coach who 100%, fully supported me in my Woo efforts...the result, a thriving business. I quadrupled my Page and booked over 200 readings in a little over TWO months!
It is not so much about one coach being right or wrong. Good or bad. Woo or not Woo.
I share those two very different experiences because to show that when we are surrounded by those who fan our flames, we thrive.
My success in one program vs the other was purely due to being with a group of people where my flames were fanned and my vibration high.
And I promise you, when you feel the flames are fanned, your vibration WILL raise.
What I have learned is this:
No one else can save you
No one else can create miracles in your life
No one else has more answers to your life THAN YOU
No one else knows your WHY.
No coach can create a successful business for you because YOU are the Creator! Their systems and you putting the work in are what produce the results.
My suggestions to you:
Find the people who believe in you.
Find people with similar values.
Believe in yourself and TRUST yourself.
Take responsibility for YOU AS CREATOR
Work with a coach who gets your vision.
If you want something, go after it.
If you need help, find someone who can help you.
If you know that something isn't right for you, change it.
You are the only one who has the POWER to make your life what you dream it to be.
