Ten years ago, I was this party girl who would pride herself for being “too cool for school”, I would somehow pass all my exams and would do just enough to get through the tests.
I had created this script inside my mind that I was not someone who loved reading or studying and that was completely made up! I thought it was so lame to study or to read books or to invest in personal growth and during the whole time when I was pursuing my bachelor’s degree, all I would spend my time doing was inviting people for drinks and hosting them, doing dance parties in my living room, having happy hours. And it was my life, I would be in my class and think about what we are doing after class!
Even while pursuing my Master’s degree, I was trying to hack my way through University.
I had created a persona for myself that I was just not the student who enjoyed studying for all these years.
But then, I started learning about NLP, Neuro-Linguistic...
Hey beautiful human,
I’m coming at you with #real #raw & #vulnerable news!
Over the last few months, it's been so interesting how the world evolved, and how I had to evolve, who I was, who I am, who I'm becoming.
And a few things that are on my mind these days are the next step in terms of living situation, where are we going to live next?
This has been on my mind, for a few months now. And to be quite real and honest, I got in my own way. I got stuck in analysis-paralysis, trying to figure out the perfect next step to where we should live next, being stuck into wanting to make the right move.
And it's interesting because when you're in your head spiraling, trying to make sure that you’re calculating every single step coming your way, you're obviously preventing yourself to truly enjoy what life has to offer because when you're trying to control, your energy is contractive!
And what we want instead is to just allow things to unfold, allow...
Oh, what a journey!
When I first started my business, I didn’t even know what coaching was!
All I knew was that I had a mission and a message to share- I wanted people to be Happy on Mondays, it was all about that and I started from that place because I knew what it was like to be unhappy in my own corporate career and to be unhappy on Mondays and to live a purposeless life.
If I would have waited until I knew everything I needed to know, like my “niche” or “what to offer”, it wouldn’t have happened that way. It’s not how it goes. If you want to build a personal brand and want to monetize it, you must start by being crystal clear on what it is that you want to share with the world, what is your message, your mission, what is this thing that you’re obsessed about sharing with the world? How do you want to impact the World?
That is where I started, I didn’t believe in niching down or finding a target...
As coaches, personal development influencers, lightworkers, we want to help people. We want to be of service and impact the world. But there’s only so much you could do by providing free advice or coaching. And you have to level up and start charging for the Value you provide, in order to make a real difference in the world. Here’s why:
1. People do not value Free stuff- they do not follow through and take action when you provide value for free!
Do you remember those free toys that come with McDonald's happy meals?
What would you do with those toys later on? Either you would trash those or you would keep it somewhere and never see those again, right? That’s what happens with the FREE stuff!
And no offense, it is not to say that your free content or advice is not valuable but that won’t bring the transformation for your client as they won’t take it seriously.
2. If you want to make an impact in the world; you must be able to meet your...
Are you a coach who has been recently certified and has no clue how to get your first paying client?
Or are you just someone who has been helping people along the way, in your corporate career and you wanna know how can you create a business out of this?
If you said “Hell ya, show me, I feel stuck, overwhelmed and confused!”, then know that you’re not alone.
Trust me, when I say I have been there!
I was STUCK- I didn’t know how to package my expertise and my true desire to help people into a coaching business that people would be willing and able to pay for my services!
But then I decided to go all-in and took four massive but simple steps!
Let me share with you these four simple steps which will help you build a thriving coaching business:
You need to feel it in your bones. This is what I call the “Identity shift” and it is so important, because if...
Around 2 years ago, I was travelling for work on a Sunday, I was on a plane and I was sitting and reading a book, Carrie Green’s book “She means business” and suddenly something clicked!
There was something more!
There was something more in life, that was left to pursue.
I was settling, this was not quite it, this was not it at all.
I realized I had to make a big massive change in my life, but what was it?
All I knew at this point, was that I wanted to create my own “Happy on Mondays” lifestyle!
And boom, I had this Aha moment!
I need to be Happy on Mondays and I need to crack this code and teach others to do this because I had been surrounding myself with too many people that were settling in their careers and were not doing the work that was truly meaningful to them and guess what I didn’t want that for myself, for the world around me and I knew I can be the CHANGE-MAKER.
I can be the person who sets the tone, who sets the example, who can be a...
It's the middle of a new week, and there's a lot going on in the world right now...
I'm sure you don't need me to go into details about that, but there are details of something on my heart that needs to be shared..
But before I do, I want you to know that of course I understand you're afraid, I get it, and I'm fully aware of the dramatic situation happening across the globe right now...
I'm refusing to let what's happening right now be a convenient excuse.
An excuse for you to settle.
I've been receiving messages from so many people, from audience members to paying clients and students, with so many people using what's going on right now as a way to hold back and put off building and growing their dreams..
As if the world doesn't need you right now.
Which we both know is an absolute lie.
It's time for us - including myself - to ditch the limitations and step the heck up.
Because I've even allowed the external circumstances of the world right now...
My amazing husband Pat and I were having so many discussions just the other day, because it seems like clients and students that both of us work with keep coming up with the same resistances.. the same self-sabotaging patterns..
It's like they kept looking for another problem, another reason to get in their own way.
(Psst - if this is striking a cord with you, good, because that means it's just an area of you that could be shown a bit more love & accountability)
Anyway.. because we had so many 'a-ha' moments and breakthroughs between each other, I thought I'd share our insights & experiences with you.
On this week's Monday Night #REALTALK, we covered this entire topic in detail...
>> BELIEVE & YOU WILL RECEIVE <<
Here's some of the major shifts:
>> No matter WHAT goal you have, the very first thing you need to embody is knowing that if you want it, it's already yours
>> Stop looking for all the reasons what you want won't work out...
I can't believe it.
As I'm sitting here right now typing this away on my keyboard, I'm literally going over all of the incredible things I've accomplished in the last 365 days.
Things I thought were truly, truly impossible.
Like becoming a Master Life and Success Coach + Master Practitioner in NLP, Hypnotherapy, EFT.
Like $200k in sales.
Like working with perfect-fit clients and students.
Like signing up to work with my dream coach.
And now, going into 2020, here's what's on my goal list:
Become a Trainer of Life + Success Coaching, NLP, EFT + Hypnotherapy.
Enrol 200+ students in the Happy on Mondays Coaching Certification Method.
Abstain from alcoholic drinks over the next year.
Read at least 26 books.
Commit to working out 5-6x per week.
Purchase my dream home with my dream husband Pat.
To get these goals, my next-level identity and current container needs to shift.
To do that, I went over a simple and powerful technique that I talked about in this week's Monday Night...
You know when you want something so much, you get into a bit of an obsession about it?
Like, major stress kicks in and it becomes really tough to push through and achieve it?
Wouldn't you like to know how to let go of the how, so you can actually reach your goal without pulling your hair out or spinning in circles?
On this week's Monday Night #REALTALK, we covered this entire topic in detail.
Here's some of the major shifts:
>> Overthinking the 'how' of my goal of making 100k in my first year of business led to stress and panic mode
>> Trying to control your journey and how things will unfold is not how the universe works
>> Working through my own limiting beliefs and fears using NLP, EFT & Hypnotherapy helped me completely move through scarcity mode in setting my first really ambitious goal
>> Focus on the 'what' (your goal) instead of all the little tiny details (the 'how') to avoid scarcity and neediness (the opposite of what's necessary to attract...
