I'm not a religious kinda girl but my life is guided by soul AND I've been around the merry-go round enough times to know that there are universal forces much grander than our mere mortal selves which ultimately drive our businesses.
After running my own business for 13 years and guiding others to success as a business mentor... there is a common thread that runs through all successful businesses.
I have broken that common thread into 10 essential steps... check below that you are nailing every single one... coz you need them all firing to succeed!
Do you believe in fairy tales?
I certainly do...
I recently turned 41 and the first year of my forties has been a constant shower of miracles.
After returning from a year living in Bali in 2014, I thought life couldn't get much better than living on a tropical island and working in my dream online business...
...but it did!
I left Bali because a 'little baby spirit' told me I needed to return to Melbourne to meet my dream man. I know.. coo coo crazy huh!?!
But I trusted and followed the weird and intuitive voice and 2015 turned out to be the most miraculous year EVER!
So many blessings arrived all at once!
I bought my dream car.
My business tripled in monthly income... twice.
I met my soulmate.
I fell pregnant.
I ran my dream meditation retreat to Uluru.
I bought my dream home on 3 acres of forest overlooking the sea.
I exchanged commitment rings with my dream man in our garden.
Feelings of peace, love and contentment reached an all time high.
All of the deep inner work I had done for years suddenly manifested in my outer world.
I've had a crazy winter cold all week AAHHHCCHHHOOOO...and feel so blessed that I can do my 'work' from bed or the couch beside the fire. The perks of an online biz just keep getting better! The laptop lifestyle really is a dream come true... but for many people it remains just that... a dream.
When I was in my early twenties I spent 18 months wandering around South America studying with shamans in the Amazon and Andes. It was a very powerful time in my life and the first time I learned to trust the powerful and soulful aspect of who we are. Below are photos of some of the amazing beings who I met.
I'm back in Melbourne now feeling fulfilled after a fabulous family 'paycation' in Byron Bay.
It was so great to connect with the powerful land and sea that is the Byron Shire and I got to connect with dear Byron friends and introduce Miss Ruby... however the absolute highlight was the Byron Bay Biz Retreat.
Greetings from lovely Byron Bay.
It's been so great to reconnect with my old home and friends as I prepare for the Byron Bay Biz Retreat this weekend. Below is my office view this week.
For my business to be where it is now, I have overcome many stuck places and have had many business breakthroughs over the years.
One breakthrough I recall years ago was when I was living in a simple one room yurt in Byron Bay and I was struggling to find clients. I went to a mountain top and stared up at the clouds and asked the universe...
My little family is up, up and away today as we fly north for the winter... well for 2 weeks of it! We are heading to Byron Bay for our very first family holiday or 'paycation' as we say in the online world... AND I am also hosting the Byron Bay Biz Retreat!
The retreat is another dream come true for me.
A gorgeous house over-looking the national park/pacific ocean, a jam packed schedule filled with transformational practices and business building awesomeness and some inspiring guest speakers to share their expertise.
I'm so excited to be able to meet some of my clients in the flesh. For we online entrepreneurs who create our growing empires in cyber world... flesh, eye contact and hugs are few and far between.
So it really is a dream come true to return to my old home of 6 years, Byron Bay and to inspire the wise souls in the Peace Passion & Profit Mastermind in person... in paradise!
The photo above is of me back when I lived in Byron 5 years ago... that hippy girl was dreaming of a successful online biz but she was broke and wasn't sure where to start! Ha!
Have you ever felt limited and held back by your inner critic?
We've been having lots of fun in the Peace Passion & Profit Mastermind private Facebook group on this topic. Last week I shared a charactuer of my inner critic and invited the PPP tribe to do the same. It was an amazing and fun exercise to give the crazy voices in our head a character which enhances our ability to see them for the false entities that they are.
Here's my inner critic... meet Whingy Wilma!
I have started the day for the last 20 years with a silent meditation and the self inquiry required to pierce through all thoughts, body sensations and emotions to the pure silence at our core.
However since Ruby was born instead I wake to the sound of a babbling bubba who is ready for breakfast. The first moments of my day are usually staring into the eyes of a precious little being as I breast feed while the sun rises.
Little Miss Ruby is now 3 months old and it still blows my mind that I've found the time to start up my business part time.
The automatic and support structures I have created have allowed me to keep the passion and inspiration flowing in my biz and I still have plenty of time to squeeze these cute cheeks all day long!
