Hello Friend! Whether you have been following my journey for some time now or are new here- Welcome!
I'd like to share a little about my story with you all and my vision for the future. I have never felt more rooted in my purpose and of service to others, than I do now.
In 2012 I became a Reiki Master while I was working as a business administrator in West Hollywood. I was new to the spiritual world but found many of its' practices and teachings to be things that I were very innate and supportive to me. Being a natural intuitive, working with energy, seeing spirit, or knowing there is more to this world than meets the eye- well, let's just say it wasn't exactly a shocker but more of an extension to what I already felt inside. Afterall, I used to tell my mom who was calling on the phone before the phone rang.
Over the years, I continued to work my way through the corporate ladder, moving into sales, management, HR, marketing and recruitment all while running my own small business on the side. During this time I had started diving deeper into my spiritual gifts and healing practice and blending my intuitive gifts with my healing. Clients would tell me how transformative these sessions were, how much lighter they felt, and how they felt physically different. In these sessions I am flooded with messages, sometimes it's past memories, energy that needs support, direct guidance from their guides, and occasionally a message from a passed loved one. I absolutely loved this work and still do, but it didn't feel like my whole complete self.
If I am being honest, I didn't really feel like my whole complete self in either of the worlds I lived in. In the corporate world I would top the charts with my achievements by bringing in my spiritual practices, manifestations techniques, and business energetics but was often looked at like the kooky aunt when managers or co-workers would ask how I was getting these results. I was confronted daily with unethical sales and business practices that I refused to put into place, often times getting a firm talking to and trying my luck. In my spiritual practice, I loved being able to support others on their spiritual journey, but my guides kept telling me that I was capable and meant for more- and I could feel it but I just didn't know exactly what that could or would look like. All this to say, I didn't feel integrated or embodied in either of the two places where I spent most of my time.
From one of the earliest times I could remember, I always knew that I wanted to have my own business. And oh goodness, have I have I tried and failed at sooooo many businesses! insert cringe here Okay, in all honesty all of these failed business, though unbeknownst to me at the time were preparing me for where I am now. When I was about 8, I took a wagon down the street offering car washes and actually made a good amount, I took babysitting jobs when I got a little older, worked for a Korean food/Gelato shop under the table when I was 15 and in crutches, and continued my adventures even working in corporate. I had an online stationery shop for brides, a handmade jewelry shop, flipped furniture, sold art, oils, worked for a psychic website…okay, okay, you name it I have probably given it a try.
However, the only thing that maintained consistent was my drive for more, my spiritual practice, and healing business. I was a few years ago now that I was sitting in my last corporate job that I thought to myself, “ Man, I would love to help people run, operate, and grow their businesses from a conscious and spiritual place.” And like that a seed was planted. With in one month of that thought, I was leaving my job, on shall we say, rough terms. Admittedly this was not the first job that I had left, spirit had been giving me this message for about 2 years before I fully surrendered.
Flashback to 2 years before this moment to the first time I left my job, I tried to rely on my healing business full time, but I got really depressed, felt lost, and was honestly directionless. Still having some income coming in from my healing business and the pressure to survive, tried to go fulltime in my healing business. I quickly found out that, something I already knew, that solely doing healing work would not be generative to me. I also quickly found out, just how quickly my savings would dwindle. Being a little stubborn (not sure if it’s a Virgo thing) I told myself, I would not go back to corporate, so I started doing Uber. I am sure you may have deduced by now, that this too was short lived, and I did in fact go back to corporate.
I felt like a complete failure, I had trusted my intuition and I felt duped! It felt like my partner had lost trust in me and I lost trust in myself. However, I knew, and spirit often reminded me that I hadn't given myself a real chance and quit that job out of desperation, numbness, and anxiety. When I went back to my now last corporate job, I immediately started plotting my exit strategy. I knew I could put the mask back on for a bit, that I could fully do the job, and make good money yet again. But I also knew it would be short lived. I knew that these contractions in my life were birthing something bigger for me. Little did I know the luscious and beautiful path that I would be called to.
Flash forward a year, back to me leaving this job. thanks for hanging in there. Here I was on the edge of fear. Leaving yet another 6-figure job, but something about this felt really different. This felt like an intuitive calling. Like a destined moment. It really did feel different, I had been given a download of what I wanted to do and how I could finally find integration. I wanted to help other soul centered business! I wanted to blend my knowledge of my energetic and spiritual practices with my extensive knowledge in sales and business development. I wasn't sure how I was going to get there, and how it would be received, but if I knew one thing by now it was to follow my intuition!
So, that was exactly what I did. I left my job and started on my journey of becoming an intuitive business coach. Up until this point my spiritual business had only seen me as an intuitive and healer. I wasn't really sure how it would be received by the people who supported my along the way. I began planning, channeling, and letting spirit guide me to the path of least resistance. I followed the callings, launched the offerings, hired a coach, revamped my website, and started doing what I knew best. Trusting. Now, I want to say, that it is hard to encapsulate all of the feelings, hard, times, and low-income months in a blog post, but I definitely had them. I never want to give the impression that things were seamless or without struggle. Looking back its always easier to see your wins and how much you've grown, but when you are in it, consumed by circumstance it can be much harder. SO, if you are in that space, know that as time moves forward all of those incremental shifts you make are creating huge shifts for you energetically.
It took me a full year of planning, shifting through energy, and launching beta business coaching programs before I officially came out of the business coach closet. I was making on average $1500-$2000 months, all the while knowing something much bigger was coming. When I finally launched my coaching business and programs, it was a full month before anyone signed up. A full month of holding the vision and the faith. Luckily, I had given myself support. I had hired a coach to help me pivot, stay the course, and maintain the vision. During this time, spirit had given me a vision of a $60k month, which felt so good in my body, but having my high be $3.5k seemed a little far off. Little did I know what the year would have in store for me. I continued to follow my soul's calling. Holding that vision and putting in the work. I started not only selling my program but was sold out!
Now, sitting in my apartment, writing this. I am coming out of an almost $20k month- a fully booked group program, 5 solo clients, and 2 more spaces opening in two weeks with, a waiting list of clients. I get to help some of the most amazing soul centered business scale, launch, and expand their business. Watching them win, witnessing them in their tender moments, and challenging them when I see them getting in their own way. Somehow, that $60K month doesn’t feel so far off now. My vision for my business is bigger than it ever has been. Getting to create space for creative, soulful, intuitive, and spiritual entrepreneurs to be wildly successful, in an industry that has told them time and time again that business wasn't for them, creates a ripple effect beyond me that I am so proud to be a part of. I get to help re-shape, disrupt, and re-center an industry that has been long overdue for an awakening. Where business becomes more heart centered, ethical, and conscious to support us all.
I am not sure that I can adequately capture how fulfilled, grateful, and aligned I feel with the work I do now. I am beyond honored with each client that trusts me to support them and so in awe with each of their special talents and medicine for the world and I can't wait to continue to support more soulpreneurs! My vision for next year is to expand my business through small business grants, scholarship opportunities for new business owners, and continue to develop my product suite to help more entrepreneurs.
I am so happy to have you on this journey with me.
Sending you lots of love,
