Starting your own business is hard y’all. Let me tell you. But it is not impossible. For me it all started with taking a look at my spirituality. I wanted to find answers to things that I didn’t understand when I felt stuck and had no idea which way was up. So I learned. I learned about anything that I could get my hands on: Life Coaching, Astrology, Numerology, Moon Phases, Palm Reading, Chakras, Reiki, Tarot Cards, Laws of the Universe, Meditation, Buddhism, Taoism, Feng Shui, Human Design…yeah, a lot. I started to follow people who understood what I was searching for and what I was about. I started learning about myself and what I believed in and what aligned with me. I started to meditate and really develop that understanding and it was life changing. I started to pay attention to the language I was using and the thoughts that lived in my mind. I realized I was holding myself back simply by what I was saying. I would tell myself no, before anyone else got the chance tell me yes. I filled myself up with doubt about the things I was passionate about. So I had enough. I was on a mission to remove all of those limiting beliefs surrounding who I was and what I was capable of and I began to trust the Universe.

It has changed my life. I started to see how those around me also faced the same issues. So many of my friends, peers, colleagues, also felt stuck. They also wanted more, but didn’t realize that they were holding themselves back. So soon enough I was on another mission. I wanted to help others remove their own limiting beliefs and work towards becoming the person who they want to be {this is where the Growth Mindset piece of my business comes in}. Another thing that I have always been interested in is holistic wellness. I was first introduce to the Dimensions of Wellness when I was in graduate school and it instantly resonated with me. There are so many aspects of our lives that make us, us and it is so important to make sure that each area is doing okay, especially since they are all interconnected {this is where the holistic wellness piece comes in}. And it all just felt so right, so I did what I do when I’m trying to make sense of it all: I learn.

I read everything I could get my hands on. Shoot, I’m still reading. I will probably be reading forever. And all of it just reinforced my new found self. All I wanted to do was share this information with the world! So, if you want to start your own business, this is how I started:

1) I found something that deeply resonated with me, who I am, my values, and who I want to be (It’s okay if this doesn’t come to you right away, but try focusing on the things that get you in that “flow” frame of mind).

2) Researched & learned everything that I could about it. I knew I wanted to become a Life Coach so I started taking courses with an ICF accredited online program {Coaching EDU}.

3) Followed & friended people who were doing the same thing I was, but were just a couple steps ahead of me. This helped me figured out what my next steps would be.

4) Came up with a name that I felt expressed what my business was all about.

5) Hired my own life coach to guide & validate me when needed.

6) Googled everything I could about how to start my own business (still learning about this one!).

7) Opened up my Social Media accounts with my business name (having a strong social media was something that was important to me!)

8) Trust my path, the Universe, and believe in myself!

No one ever talks about how it all started. You hear about those who are making six figures a month are wildly successful doing their thing, but they never tell you how they went about doing it. So I wanted to do that for you! It’s not easy and it doesn’t happen all at once, but every step of the way I have felt inspired and excited for what is to come. I hope that this helps you feel the same way!

Next Steps: I plan on officially launching my website on April 8th! (So if you’re reading this now, Hello & welcome to my website!) I’ll talk a little bit more how I went about choosing my platforms and designing the brand that I wanted. I will be officially be opening spots for clients June 2019. More updates to come soon!
