I don't know about you but February is the month when I actually begin to find my groove again when it comes to work and career ambitions.
I was honored to be featured in a few publications this January and in the conversation with Go Solo by Subkit, I was asked to share more about my Coaching Business, which is something I never really get the opportunity to look back on or talk about.

Answering the various questions reminded me of a few things when it comes to having a side hustle, being an entrepreneur, or building a career that is actually fulfilling, which I also wanted to share with YOU.
1. Business is a spiritual game.
I remember hearing Tony Robbins say that years ago and the more I heal and the bigger my business grows the more I know this is true. Don't try and separate the two. Care deeply about your customer, use your spiritual gifts in business, allow it to help you grow, and take a look at your Shadow that will make an appearance every now and then, usually on a Monday haha. Business can be one of the best spaces to heal triggers, grow into the person you want to be, serve others and make this world a place you'd be proud to live in.
2. Start, and the pressure will be off.
It's one of the Sutras for the Aquarian age that Yogi Bhajan shared and I recall it often when it comes to business. A lot of stress is caused by INACTION, by not-doing, by putting things off until the last minute, etc. Now there are many fascinating reasons why you might do that, but there is always one solution, action, however small, action changes the energy and takes a lot of the pressure off of yourself or the situation.
3. All of your power lies in the NOW.
Listen to your spiritual big sister now, as much as you love planning, predicting, and preparing for what the future will hold, your true power lies in the present moment. So many times I preemptively judged something as being good or bad or prepared for the worst possible outcome only for things to turn out beautifully. I started actually living the principles that Eckhart Tolle teaches in his book The Power Of Now and it made such a big impact on how I do business. I fully rely on the present moment, the here and now, to unfold and gift me with whatever opportunity comes. Yes, I still plan, and yes, I still hope for and prepare for things in advance, but I know that the magic of life, the thrill of business, and the growth that I might need to heal, will only be available at that moment, in the present.

4. There will always be more work, there will not always be the YOU, you are right now.
As much as I enjoy what I do and the businesses I have created and worked for one of my biggest lessons was realizing that there will ALWAYS be work to do, so I will need to learn how to prioritize myself and my wellness regardless. Carving out time, and making yourself and your life a priority isn't a luxury, it's a necessity. There will always be more to do, but there is only one YOU, and they deserve to experience more of this life than simply working!
5. Prepare for your success.
How many times do you prepare to fail, for things to go wrong, for the worst possible outcome? And how many times in your career have you actually prepared, physically, mentally, and spiritually, for your success? There's a trend going around called 'Lucky Girl Syndrome' where people simply believe that they are lucky and that good things happen to them, this is a simple form of preparing for your success. There are so many positive studies about the power of visualization, of embodying the person you want to become before even manifesting it, about preparing your environment and making plans for future success and then reaching it in record time that proves the point that the brave, prepare for their success. This simple principle has made my business almost double in a year's time and has brought amazing opportunities my way that I didn't even imagine possible. It's my not-so-secret weapon, and I really encourage you to begin every project, every week, every day, planning for your success.
