I have been chomping at the bit to let you in on this huge secret. If you have read all of my blog posts, followed me for some time, or know me personally, I have dropped many hints about it.
In all fairness I feel that I must come clean about the success I have experienced in my cookie business, and how I have pulled through the really hard times in my life (Like the past two years of illness that had me wondering when, I would be able to come back). Hint: It’s not just hard work!
Sure, a business takes lots of work, but that does not guarantee success. Let’s be honest, most people work really hard their entire lives and they don’t get very far, but you know that, I’m sure you see it every day.
What about you? Are you working really hard, burning the midnight oil and just barely surviving? Are you undercharging for your work because you lack confidence? Do you feel fear when you get a big order, are you just scraping by, or maybe you just want to take your business to a new level ?
I have been though all of that and then some, only to rise like a phoenix from the ashes. I attribute everything I have accomplished to two things aside from all of my work.
- Having a Mentor
- Being a Soul/ Heart Centered Entrepreneur( Does that sound a bit New Age-y or Idealistic? Yup, that's me. My business must benefit people other than ME! That's my Credo in a nutshell..More about that later)
Remember how I told you I had lost everything back in 2007 ? So how did I recover from all of that? I would be lying if I told you I did it on my own.
You probably know by now that I am a lifelong student of Human Potential and Personal Development. Without growth you are not living, you are merely existing. That is my philosophy.
Right after my "Dark Night of my Soul" as I call it, I attended a seminar in Austin, at which I happened to have the good fortune of sitting next to a lady at dinner, who happened to be a catalyst for a huge change in my life.
During the course of the evening, we spoke for a bit. In spite of my circumstances ( Your current circumstances do not define you) she saw the greatness in me and did not hesitate to let me know.
She knew instantly, that I had the potential to not only come back, but come back stronger and better than ever.
Being a Heart-Centered entrepreneur means I don't believe in keeping these kinds of secrets to myself , so I promise to introduce her to you tomorrow.
For now I will tell you that she was so genuine, giving and inspiring that she sparked something in me and I found a way to invest in myself and she in turn used her gifts to help me climb out of the dark hole I was in.
The truth is I’ve had many teachers over the years, however, some just stand out. I have always been a student of Human Potential, that’s why I love helping people and that is why I am HERE, now sharing with you.
While I have been busy working behind the scenes preparing a really comprehensive and accurate pricing guide that you will only find here ( more to come on that too) , my friend, and coach has put together a host of information that will help you jump start your business.
All the information needed to help you lay the ground work will be at your fingertips. We want to make sure we help you remove any and ALL of those pesky blocks that might keep you from succeeding no matter how hard you work.
So, over the next few days, I am going to share some REALLY valuable information with you that not everyone has access to. I truly mean this so PLEASE pay attention.
Some people just block their own success by turning away from new ideas, but I know you are a creative being, and you are in a creative business. What that means to me is that you are more open by nature.
All you have to do is keep an open mind and an open heart. You have EVERYTHING to gain by just listening and paying attention. The best part is it’s FREE!
Look for an email from me tomorrow with all the details of how you can get your business started or how you can breathe new life into it!
