This week a client asked me about the ways I attract clients…she went on to say “what if I am really committed to fill my practice now– what are the steps that you suggest I take”???

I thought you might enjoy my answer as it applies to all -who may want to jump start your consulting or coaching business. Remember attracting clients involves doing and being… the state of mind we are in when we speak to people is felt by those we are speaking to.

That said it is always best to set a goal for the number of new clients you desire and then carve out a realistic amount of time- say- 1 month or 2 months – to give yourself– to totally prioritize building your client base. This will give you breathing room. Nothing good comes from acting out of desperation.  You need time– non-pressured time– where you dedicate yourself and actions to this intention.  I suggest that you give yourself permission to work on this – with a set deadline. You also need to intend that you desire to attract the exact right clients from the inside out.  All the people you attract to work with you need to be consciously attracted to you- by you. They need to understand specifically how you can be of service to them. This requires that you truly “know thyself “and the gifts you offer. To attract the right clients from the inside out you need find a place stillness to get very clear about what you offer that is of great value to your client. What meets their most important needs?

Also remember that inside out client attraction needs to be done in a state of trust never get it right if – even deep within we feel any sense of scarcity… I know this may sound twee but it is absolutely essential… Trust me.

It is also important to set a clear goal in terms of attracting the exact right clients. Is your business full at 8 clients or 20? I work with 9 women at a time in my Boutique Consultingand then I start a waiting list. Know what works best for you and then start to picture them signing up to work with you. Picture what you are offering them and see the relationship as being and excellent match.

Now let’s get started with the exact steps:

  • I suggest that you immediately create a clear powerful sentence or two that explains what you can specifically change for a client and or what needs that you will specifically meet for your new clients.  Write this down – rehearse speaking it.  Having a strong clear voice and speaking about what you have to offer (uniqueness) – will attract people on the spot- if you are really ready to attract clients. I know you have said you have a gift and bring it through in a different way … how uniquely will you meet specific pressing needs they have. Speak it clearly.

  • A very clear picture of who you can best serve now- List the 10 women you now want to work with and know why. Call them – let them know what you offer.

  • Make another list of 10 other women you have met – align with– and who you could invite to have a month of sessions as a trial. They differ from the above – because they may want a short series of sessions for clarification – possibly using numerology. Design a short reasonably priced offer to get them from muddled to clear. (Price it fairly to invite and make it easy financially). 

  • Create an offer for clients that you have already served well and ask them if they need a regroup session and to spread the word about a Spring Make over offer or??? Offer.

  • Offer 3 comps sessions– mini sessions to women that have attended an event you have spoken at. In my earlier career to get better known I did this and it usually led me to a client or 2.

  • Schedule 5 calls or meetings with women you know to get their thoughts on who they know that you think you could serve NOW. This will really start spreading… the word. Offer to help them with something they need.

  • Start picturing an event that you will host- that is cool and fun –that would bring women together – where you are at the center— create a catchy fun offer like on spot coaching or something to give the event a party feel.

  • A Clear State of Mind with a high level of pure intention—internal knowing- attraction and trust and tenacity!!!

It was fun to take this apart and support my client. I hope this gets you moving in a new and creative direction. This week my client and I will start working in a focused and customized way to support her in filling her practice.

 I suggest you go for it yourself. The world needs you now more than ever!!!!

Why? Many of us fear the dark- the dark of night – the dark experiences that life presents us with.

Fear not- for the darkness provides us with the well needed contrast which allows us to fully experience light. Each experience that we have that feels dark– carries with it in the lessons and opportunities that it leads us to -the light This season  is full of short days and if we allow darkness  to inform us – it will be a great teacher and friend. Do take time to go with in and explore the places, feelings and thoughts within you that you normally would not go because of a lack of time or stillness. Find time to be still and listen from with in..

To be clear and conscious in our businesses we must be clear about the richer deeper meaning of our life. We can clearly hear messages and experience thoughts and divinations when we make time to listen.  Notice in the quiet of these dark days what comes to mind. You may get feelings and guidance that will reveal the deeper meaning of your existence here. Look for the deeper meaning of your life in the quiet. Notice what most excites you and where you are drawn. When you live and express the deeper meaning of your life each day in the work or service we offer we simply are living consciously.

Enjoy the special and sacred season.                                                                              May good things come your way.                                                                                 Warmly, Maureen

“The satisfaction of love is not in the feeling itself, but in the joy that feeling brings. Love gives joy” Paramahasa Yogananda

We yearn for love, we search for love, and when a relationship ends we feel we have lost our joy, our love, our everything forgetting that joy is around us and in us.  Too often we confuse passion with love.  We may have passion with another without love and love without passion and when we combine the two it is like fireworks.  When real fireworks end we will remember them as spectacular.  We will recall and recount the event to others with joy and awe. However, when the fireworks from a relationship dwindle and die we often become bitter and angry; we choose not to remember what was spectacular, what filled us with joy. We will tell others how awful the person was, what they did, we will dwell in our intense dislike for them.  Does this serve us well?  No.  We do it because the hurt is overwhelming and we do not see how living the pain over and over again continues to hurt us.  

What happens when instead we make a choice to hold on to the memories that made us smile, remembering why we once loved them and choose to continue to love them as a fellow human being, a soul we connected with; we then open ourselves to receive new love.  We open ourselves to feel joy.  There were traits we liked about the other person. If there were not, then we must ask ourselves, what was it that drew us to them?  This introspection allows us to grow and then, if nothing else, we can appreciate the relationship for the growth it provided.

I am not saying that you still spend time with that person, unless that is what you choose.  However as Buddha said; “Holding on to anger is like grasping a hot coal with the intention of throwing it at someone else.  You are the one who gets hurt.”  Anger, bitterness, and revenge will not serve you, nor will it hurt them.  Our relationships mirror our lives.  When we look into our soul, what do we see?  What do we feel?  What is your relationship with you?  Start caring about you.  Give yourself love, find joy in the simple things; flowers, music.  Connect with your Spirit and you will connect with you.  Then you will be open to receive and give love.  Then you will find joy and love in your heart, your soul, and your life.

What would you like to make space for?

Maybe you work a job you’re not challenged or motivated by. Maybe you are facing an illness within yourself or a family member. Maybe you need more time for your inner life. Whatever the circumstance, there is a possibility to move toward, and into something you have passion or curiosity for, and are ready for. To create a space for this, you may just notice the other spaces, which feel tight, stagnant or chaotic becoming more spacious and free.

 We went through fire and water, yet you have brought us forth to a spacious place.

-Ps. 66:12

From my own experience, my life is in flux, and it has been for a while. We have moved several times, and still have not settled. And each of the members in my family is striving toward something, which remains to be seen.

Prior to this phase of my life, I lived comfortably and felt outwardly stable. I was a parent and homemaker, who made space within this life for my soul. What in me is holding me hostage? What in me wants to be free? Who am I? Who am I not? What am I capable of achieving?

As I lived within these questions, finding answers along the way, I now notice an inner flexibility, along with a wider scope, which helps me feel more spacious, while this current life of flux continues. Something else, which assists me now, is work. For me this means writing, and preparing myself to teach what I have learned.

I have always wanted to take the time for this, but what I didn’t know then, as I do now- I can’t do everything I want to do when I want to do it. I couldn’t run my home, do deep inner work and also teach and write for others. I just couldn’t.

What I also see now, is there is a natural progression and order to my life, which I’ve resisted. It was in right order that when my life was comfortable and stable on the outside, I went deep to look at what’s not stable, and what is stable, within me.

And now when my external life is not stable, I find the work I’ve always wanted to do arriving front and center to bring stability. It might not be smoothing out the rough and unpredictable edges, but it certainly has the potential to, and if nothing else it gives a focus and an attention that grounds and nourishes me.

Reflect upon where you are right now… How might it be an opportunity to create a space for something new? Something that allows you to expand and explore new territory? That creates stability? That brings release? That grounds, support and nourishes?
