For one year and one day
I promise to be in sacred union with you
Listening to your needs and desires 
Witnessing your growth
Supporting our collective vision
While ensuring that those who we serve feel loved and seen

For one year and one day
I shall not forget that we are in this together
And that we shall forge our own path
Being guided by my intuition and your sacred contract with me

For one year and one day
We shall watch our relationship grow
Our business grow
Creating beauty and abundance with grace

So mote it be.

Start, Grow, Scale - What does this mean for your business? SBP Ep 11

A client asked last week, “What is the difference between working in your business versus working on your business?”

I find that most of us get sucked into working IN your business. Meaning you are trying to keep up with day-to-day tasks. This includes community engagement, social media, newsletters, client calls, visibility, and spiritual practices. 

The area that we tend not to dismiss or move away from are vision, long-term business growth strategies, market research, capturing your community’s desires, finances, systems, and structure. 

When the sacred container is built, with a strong foundation, your creations flow gracefully with ease and all parts of you begin to thrive. 

Therefore, I invite you to consider listening to today’s podcast and lean into yourself. Take a breather and firstly notice where you are in your business.

4 types of Business Owners - Which one are you?

Healers, coaches, spiritual womxn leaders and entrepreneurs, do you fall into one of these categories?

The avid student of all things magic.
You sign up for another energy course, yoga course, magic course, tarot course hoping that this will create more value within your work. You spend all of your money on this but it still doesn’t shift the internal belief that you are worthy of creating a thriving business.

The hesitant service provider.
You currently are working in your business. Your head is down and you are looking to grow your clientele without placing any loving focus on your business. There is a part of you that doesn’t believe you can grow your business and scale it to create more space and time within your life. You are in the whirlwind of the minute details that breathing into a bigger vision feels impossible. You still consider yourself a service provider rather than a business owner or an entrepreneur.

The proud worker.
Your ego feeds on knowing that you are working your ass off. You love knowing that you hustle, working hard in order to play hard. Your to-do lists are a mile long, your schedule is packed, you know exactly what to do because it’s on your spreadsheet, and nothing is going to get in the way including sleep. And yet all the movement isn’t creating much growth and it’s super frustrating.

The solopreneur.
You are doing it all alone. You are taking all the self-development courses, working in your business, and hustling. The problem is, you feel all alone in this process. So when it comes to applying everything you have learned, you are unsure of yourself. Bouncing ideas off another or reviewing what has worked or hasn’t worked is a solo process.

I see you! And I believe in you. You are a rockstar who is leading the way for other soulful, conscious businesses. My invitation is to consider not going through this on your own. Find other badass entrepreneurs and begin exploring the following questions…Let’s get real with ourselves and shift out of story into truth.

 

Questions for the Avid Student

  1. Are you allowing compliments from others to truly land or do you dismiss them? 

  2. If you were no longer looking for validation from others to tell you you are doing a great job, what would need to shift within yourself so that when you acknowledge your work is potent, you believe it?

  3. Who are you? And why is that more than enough. 

 

Questions for the Service Provider

  1. Do you believe growth is possible, meaning more revenue, more space, and more time outside of your business? 

  2. Can you see how your business is scalable, shifting into a growth mindset? 

  3. Imagine sharing your medicine and being of service rather constantly in service, what would that mean for your life? 

 

Questions for the Proud Worker

  1. What would it look like to slow down, creating space for all areas of your life? 

  2. What emotions, thoughts, and feelings are you running away from?

  3. What does your intuition and the soul of your business desperately want you to know? 

 

Questions for the Solopreneur

  1. Are you being vulnerable and sharing honestly what is happening within your business?

  2. Are you cultivating deep connections and creating a sacred circle of sister entrepreneurs?

  3. What support do you need right now? 


Breathe. Call a sister. And begin exploring the above questions. Rather than reflecting alone, what if you were to do this with another divine human being - together.

Let’s continue this conversation in the newly formed Sacred Business Community Facebook Group. Together Sisters Support Sisters to Rise Up + Accelerate.

SBP Ep 8: Calibrating Energy In with Energy Out with Aracelys Roman

Working the energetics of what is creating disruption within ourselves, and therefore reflected in our business, can be tricky. Most of the time it’s not apparent and our beautiful ego gets nervous when we are intentionally placing a spotlight on the thing that our ego does not want us to see.

So what happens? Our mind tries to share, using verbal cues to misdirect us - but I see you, brilliant mind, I see you.

This is what happened with Aracelys for the first portion of our intuitive business coaching session. Without her realizing it, her energy body was tensing up, feeling unsafe with the possibility that something below her consciousness was going to rise up. So we took some time to settle, creating a safe container, and then watched as she dropped in. The profound magic that occurs is worth wading through the waters with us.

It was so beautiful. My heart met hers under the water of the divine feminine and together we swam into illumination.

I invite you to listen in on our business healing session.
