If your feeling burnt out on busy and don’t feel life you have the business you want to show for it...
we need to talk.
If you’ve got a big heart and a big mission, but building your business feels like a roller coaster that’s not fun anymore. . .
I get it.
On the one hand, you don’t want to be constantly pushing a boulder uphill to build your business, but you also know you can’t just sit around doing affirmations while waiting for it to happen.
I want to show you the in-between. . . where alignment meets inspired action.
I help heart-centered holistic entrepreneurs deepen their connection to their work and their clients by helping you set up simple, streamline systems so that you can spend more of your time doing your work of helping others (instead of swirling in tech overwhelm or constantly searching for things behind the computer!)
When I first started my coaching business it felt like such a relief.
After all, looking back there was never any question that my work would involve helping people. When I was little, I felt physically ill when someone was getting picked on in school. I could feel how uncomfortable they were, and I could feel their shame. So I’d try my very best to go out of my way to make them feel welcome and included.
So naturally when I found massage therapy, it was a great fit because I could empathize with how people were feeling and use it to intuitively figure out where they were holding their stress. I quickly became one of the most requested at the Peninsula Hotel Spa . . . but unfortunately I eventually realized that I wouldn’t be able to stay.
I had little control over how many clients were on my schedule so I was often overbooked and seeing more people than my body could physically handle.
The result not too long into my massage career was chronic muscle fatigue, exhaustion and burnout. So I left the spa to open my own practice, which quickly took off
I built the same darn thing I left behind at the spa, because I didn’t know any other way of running a massage practice.
Even though I was now my own boss, I still didn’t feel like I could take nights and weekends off. I felt like I needed to squeeze in clients whenever they could come in. And once again, I could feel the burnout creeping in. I knew I had to make some changes, and fast!
A little voice inside was telling me what to do next. After all our sessions were so much more than just a massage. I was already coaching some of my clients, but it took me a while to trust myself and gain the confidence to speak up and actually say what I knew I was meant to do, and own it. Once I did, I felt more like myself than ever before.
But little did I know that I was about to spend YEARS swirling and wondering when I was finally going to have the thriving business that let me serve people the way I wanted to.
I didn’t know what to focus on... There was so much confusing noise on the internet and it felt like everything was moving so fast except me. At the end of each day, I wondered how I could be so busy with nothing to show for it. And it was so discouraging to feel my energy and joy get depleted.
Plus, I was so ashamed of myself for not generating any real results despite the dizzying amount of money I’d invested.
I knew I wasn’t supposed to compare myself to others, but how can you not??
I was seeing all these successful coaches withbackgrounds in PR ormarketing, trying to do the things they were doing and it made the healer in me, who FELT when things were inauthentic cringe. I started to feel like I might not have what it takes.
I realized I couldn’t keep getting pulled in a million different directions . . .
Leaking my valuable energy by trying out one unsuccessful strategy after another . . .
Trying to do things exactly like everyone else . . .
