Are you growing your business in response to a childhood trauma? How to know and what to do about it?
Are you fed up of holding yourself back? Not growing your business, feeling stuck.
Do you realise that your life could be so much more and you want to do something about it.
What has been your catalyst for this realisation?
Have you had some form of therapy which has highlighted things for you?
Some kind of health scare or issue?
Burn out or breakdown?
A death or break-up?
Or perhaps something has just awoken, a niggle inside of you that you can no longer ignore
that has made you realise how much you’ve been holding yourself back, not living your life fully, not being you…
And now it’s time to change, it’s time to take your power back, become empowered.To find out who you really are, to make your mark. To stop holding yourself back and really make some money.
But you still feel vulnerable. Unsure.
And that’s why you’re looking for a coach to help you. You’re willing to invest in yourself. Perhaps this is the first time you have because you want change and you have a glimmer that you can and you are worth it. You want the income and impact that you deserve.
Finally you’re ready.
But whether you are aware or not, you are still held hostage by negative patterns and beliefs, feelings that you should do something a particular way. People pleasing, overworking, pushing too much or hiding away. Lack of confidence, so you look to others for answers and don’t fully trust yourself. Scared of speaking up, not really knowing who you are but aware the real you is in there somewhere.
You probably think changing your life by growing your business is as simple as getting clear. Showing up more and doing the work. And why wouldn’t you, that’s what so many coaches and courses are telling you online. It’s easy…follow these steps, work hard and you too will achieve.
You have no problem with that because you’re a good girl at heart and will do what you’re told. Like you always have done.
But what you don’t perhaps realise is that to grow your business in a healthy and sustainable way, you have to feel connected to it, you have to do something from your soul. something that aligns to your values and your version of success. More income yes, but more freedom, joy and doing what you love and makes you happy too.
You are ready to channel all that energy, feelings of being left behind into creating a new life and creating the money that you’ve been holding yourself back from.
You think you just need direction in your business.
A plan of how to grow it, so you can just get on and do it.
But you also feel lost and in need of direction.
I want to show you the dangers of pushing on and building your business in response to a trauma because that’s what I did.
This is my story too.
I had therapy linked to childhood trauma and had a breakthrough during that about how much I had been holding myself back in my business (entire life!).
So I went all in to make up for that lost time.
I found a coach, spent soooo much money but ended up burning myself out and still not achieving what I had hoped. The reason was twofold, the plan I followed didn’t take me into account, my soul goals, my energy and personality, my real truth and my actual version of success.
And I worked myself like a dog trying to achieve the wrong goals, following a business plan that wasn’t aligned to me. I burnt out, got sick, and didn’t see my family much. I ploughed all of the energy and time I was saving by not drinking alcohol (something I was proud of achieving) but without realising, I just replaced that vice with pushing myself and overworking.
I’m not blaming my coach, they delivered what was promised and in many ways more, because that led me to how I help my clients with today, which takes you and your soul into account before we even begin thinking about your business growth. If I had never had that experience, I would never know how vital this is.
(This also highlights the importance of not getting attached to our results looking a particular way, I went to them for business success and in a roundabout way I got it, because it led me to here and what I do now..it just didn’t match the expectation I had when I signed up with them…but the Universe always delivers what you need).
This is why I know it is so important to tap into you first, the real authentic you, to look at where you are holding yourself back (often unknowingly) and heal those pieces, make sure you are following the right dreams and goals, ones that come from your soul not your head, ego, society or in response to a trauma. Then, build your business from that place, with the right plan, systems and structure to suit you and your energy.
I help my clients grow their businesses, I am a business coach. I have 22 years of experience in helping clients grow to the next level of success through bespoke business and marketing strategy…but the other piece of that puzzle is you.
I have seen it in myself and in countless other clients. Unless you are in alignment with your business it won’t create the life that you hope for and the one you deserve.
You might make lots of money, but be miserable and exhausted in the process (not success). You might be doing work you love but not making any money (not success).
You might be somewhere in between, making alright money, doing alright work but not feeling alive, free, happy and in love with your life or business (not success either).
Your version of success is unique to you, it is the balance of all of the things that make you you, not just your business. It’s aligning your values, your passions, your dreams and aspirations, your energy and business/marketing personality..your life and every facet of it.
I built a business that was wrong for me, because I was trying to prove I was good enough, that I am worthy..no business can do that for you. It was only when I uncovered and healed that part of me and aligned my business and life accordingly, I then created the life I had set out to all along.
It’s now my life’s work to help you do the same.
