Yes, we work on creating your own systems, checklists and to do’s to get done if that all feels helpful to you. We also lean deeply into YOU, who you are and your desires. It’s not just owning yourself and your gifts, but giving them the respect and boundaries that they deserve.
Helping creative entrepreneurs do what they want in a way that they want to is what creates sustainability and longevity in a business, and more importantly in you. This is what not only births your business baby into the world, it’s also what helps it develop into exactly what it’s meant to be. Not only will your business become this beautiful thing you never knew it could be, you’ll also become sufficient in nurturing yourself, your desires, your needs… making YOU the person you never knew you could be.
LIFE FIRST, THEN BUSINESS
We start with building the business the way we want to around the lifestyle they want to live, not the other way around. We integrate tools to help the creative mind funnel their brilliant ideas into monetizing action while also being able to be present for the big and small life moments.
It is the process in which I take my clients through to not only create a business they love, but a life they love as well. Because, if you can’t figure out how to love who you are, and what you are doing, then what is the point? The crazy thing is that no route looks the same. Sure, there are similar themes that come up from client to client, but each person is treated differently. The only thing that deserves a cookie cutter approach is cookies… and this ain't no bakery.
BUSINESS VITALITY BRINGS PLEASURE TO THE FOREFRONT
Business Vitality is an identity to a coaching program that was previously nameless. It brings deeper life and meaning to something that has already created immense transformation for my clients.
I noticed in myself that the coaches that I chose to be mentored by leaned into the area of intimacy and pleasure. I wasn’t on to my peculiar ways right away. It took some time, reflection and noticing of patterns. “Why am I so drawn to coaches who help with this deeply personal topic? Why do I see this as something to help me as a business coach not only in my own business, but to help my clients in their businesses?” I was perplexed by myself.
After investigating, going all in and leaning into my own questions, it came to me. Here’s why I’ve always been drawn to this style of coaching: because your business is a deep and vulnerable outward expression of yourself. It’s putting more than your heart on your sleeve. It’s your beliefs, talents, skills, and gifts all on full display. In addition, entrepreneurship brings up a whole deeper level of doubts, fears, guilt and disbelief. Your past stories about money, work and success all come to life when you start running your own business. It’s uncomfortable. If you can’t be intimate and look those vulnerable things in the eye, then they are going to keep rearing your head in your business and your life. They’re going to continue to call for your attention until you finally give them the space they need. My gift is to help nurture clients through that deep discomfort and to learn to find safety in being themselves.
In my work with my mentors and coaches I’ve experienced my own revelation. The biggest one of all is around the word pleasure. I used to see it as a waste of time, frivolous, indulgent, “extra.” Once I started paying attention to the way I would go through my day and life, I realized I was robbing myself of my own joy and pleasure by the way I was rushing from one task to the next, looking to others for approval, and placing massive judgement on others which turned into a mirror of judgement on myself.
Bringing this to my own attention was empowering. It reviewed how in control I actually am of the joy & pleasure in my life, business, and days. It has nothing to do with quantity (more, more, more) and everything to do with quality. By quality I mean slowing down and paying attention-- seeing the wins, noticing what actually felt like a “hell yes” and what things I was doing out of obligation.
YOU’RE SAFE TO BE YOU & TO BE SEEN (it’s actually a danger to hide)
For people to see, witness, be inspired by you can be a really scary thing to do. “What if people don’t buy what I’m making? What if I actually do become successful at this? Do I even know how to handle that? What if I get judged?” These are all sneaky questions that stop us in our tracks of putting our God given gifts out into the world. Judgement of others. It can be paralyzing.
My Business Vitality Coaching program doesn’t teach you to brush off the judgements and forge ahead anyway. Instead we face those perceived judgements head-on and little by little we chip away at them so they eventually are the fuel to our flame, not the hose that puts our flame out.
We question what we want. We claim it and declare it. We figure out how to become the person who gets what she wants. We take action despite the fears. We speak the truth despite the waves. We create our world as we wish, despite the rules we’ve boxed ourselves in with. We create true belief in the statement “you can have it all.”
It’s been a journey to get here, both for myself and my clients. It’s been an honor to serve the amazing souls, business and brands I’ve encountered, and it makes me feel giddy excitement to think about who and what is ahead.
