Near the end of 2012, I sat down to get really clear on how I could AVOID re-creating the same mistakes in my yoga school that I made as a new business owner in my first yoga business.
In my 4+ years as a business owner, I had invested thousands of dollars in professional coaching and personal development, and I STILL wasn’t seeing the traction (or the income) for my efforts.
P.S. I had $40K in student loan debt for a degree I wasn’t using.
I felt like a failure—lost, hopeless and fearful. I was consumed by the belly-gripping, gut-wrenching fear that it would always be like this and that I would never be successful.
I took a HUGE risk and invested EVEN MORE in my own professional success, hiring coaches, taking courses and reading stacks—literally stacks!— of books each month.
But still I struggled. The business world just doesn’t hold much appeal for us conscious, creative, multi-passionate types. Our creative center means traditional business models and advice don’t fit.
Despite the chaos and emotional rollercoaster of running a business, I still reserved time in my week to nurture my creativity. It was during one of my creative sessions that everything shifted.
The result? A 6-figure business doing what I love…working with people I ADORE who value me and my work and a deep understanding of how to help others create this in their own lives and businesses.
If you’re also a mission-driven entrepreneur struggling with fear, doubt, uncertainty and perpetual cash flow issues, we need to talk.
Thanks for making it to the end of this love letter. If you’re ready to take action in your business today, then you’re ready to work with me.
