In America, a lot of us are getting ready for Thanksgiving. I love this holiday because it is usually a nice few days of rest and relaxation for my family. We don't do a lot (besides eat).
I was reminded this morning while I was journaling at how much I have learned this past year (yes I get all sentimental in November for some reason). I have accomplished so much, changed so much, and I have really stepped into the role of healer/teacher that I always was but sometimes denied for myself.
I was reminded that it is so important to celebrate yourself, your accomplishments while planning for the times to come. I tend to just go go go, and not take that moment to reflect on where I have been and the journey I took to get here.
In writing this morning, my mind took me back to last year at this time where I began my journey of being an online entrepreneur. What a wonderful ride it has been. I have so much appreciation for all of the wonderful ladies (and a few men) I have connected with here in this odd little world of Facebook. You know who you are! I love you all, and I am so looking forward to expanding that circle in the coming days, months, years.
Happy Thanksgiving to all!!
Being in business for yourself is scary as shit sometimes. It is freeing as well. 2016 has been a great year for me and my business. I went from being a mom who was "trying" to work to a working mom. I went from seeing clients in person, to only having sessions online. It has been a whirlwind of awesome experiences.
I have seen so many shifts in my business, how I work, what I actually do, and my visions of the future I intend to create. I have learned new modalities, made great new friends and even started making some cash.
One of the biggest things I have noticed about myself and working in a virtual world, is that it can be really overwhelming at times. Social media is a great tool to attract those perfect clients. It can also be a huge time suckage if you are not careful. Scrolling Facebook or Instagram can uplift you and stress you out when you are an online entrepreneur.
I love social media because it has opened up a whole new market for my services as a healer. My reach is far greater than it ever was. Some of my first clients were in Europe! But the dark side of social media is the seeming "comparisonitis" which can arise. All these amazing people doing amazing things can become a huge distraction and confidence killer. I have seen some amazing people burn out and disappear on social media in this last year; myself included at times.
Working from home in and of itself can be a challenge. Feeling isolated from "the real world" can hit you, getting sidetracked with household chores is always there, having people in your life (aka friends and family) not fully understand that you are in fact working even though you are on Facebook. Sigh....it is all so very fascinating to me.
I will tell you this, with all the hardships of owning a business and working to grow it in this world we live in, I just wouldn't trade it for anything. I love the freedom I have to create my own schedule and charge what I want to charge for my services. I am able to be with my kids, pick them up from school, go on field trips. That is important to me, and I have made this my reality by the choices I have made. It isn't always easy, but like I said, I wouldn't trade it for the world.
When you reflect back on 2016, what has changed for you? How have you grown and changed? What are you planning for 2017? I have a lot of plans for next year. I am creating fun and life changing programs! I am having a great time in my little blue office with my orange desk. Until next time...
Hey you awesome little minx you! How are you doing this fine day? Everything is flowing over here at casa de Awesome. I am rocking and rolling with new ideas, inspirations and lots of action taking!
I wanted to share with you that I am hosting a webinar next Wednesday, November 16th. In this webinar, I am rolling out a new membership program called, "Releasing Weight with Spirit". I will be talking about some of the different ways our Soul manifests best (and quickest), and by knowing our Soul self and how WE manifest, we can way more easily release that extra body weight (woo hoo).
So, if you have struggled with your body weight and loving your body, you need to come to this webinar. At the end, I will be doing a group healing around releasing weight, so you definitely don't want to miss THAT!
Here's the link to register!!
I cannot wait (pun intended) to connect with you THIS Wednesday. The call will be recorded by the way, but come to the live healing so we can chat!!
