How do you define prosperity?

So many of us- have been socialized- to view prosperity from the lens of finance and hard core money.  Even the dictionary mentions the financial respects of prosperity as being key when it defines prosperity as:

“A successful, flourishing or thriving condition, especially in financial respects; good fortune”.

In launching The Essential Feminine Company I have learned so much about prosperity that I have made it a personal focus in my live and one that I will be sharing with women in our community in the months to come. For me prosperity– true prosperity becomes available to us fully in life when our material wealth is derived from a deep inner knowing of ourselves Then it can be created and re-created in all areas of our lives…for the rest of our lives. Prosperity can include financial abundance and yet it is not limited to financial abundance.

Here is a prosperity formula for you to think about- food for thought that has recently served as the base of my personal inner work and with some of the work I have been doing with my clients—

When you line up-in your life:

 – Your talents and gifts with what you enjoy and love to do and then …

–  Tune in to what contribution you are here to make (or connect more with your life’s destiny) then…

– You build a life where prosperity will thrive and your harvest will be rich!

In the next few months I am excited to share my experiences in growing The Essential Feminine and my new awareness’s about prosperity and how you can claim it in your life. Stay tuned for more!!

Happy autumn!

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!!!!

We often don’t take time to look at or think about how confident we are in our life, our life challenges and the world.  Our confidence is rooted in many aspects of our lives.  Some of these aspects include how we feel physically, how we look and how aligned our life is with a greater meaning or purpose.  Our health   The quality of our health directly relates to the energy we have on a daily basis and how we feel over all.

Our physical appearance, posture and how show up in the world dictates how we are perceived and received.  It is also a direct reflection, in many cases, as to how we feel about ourselves. 

The greater meaning and purpose that our life holds is also a key factor in building strong confidence – as when we have meaning in our lives our days become brighter, more alive and richer in all ways. 

Confidence as we can see is built from many different aspects of our life.  I have recently reignited a yoga practice and have noticed how my posture has improved.  And, how when walking into a room I feel stronger, more upright and more confident.  I also have been noticing the foods I put into my body and how specifically I feel after eating different foods.  There is something very consistent about the buzz of sugar and the immediate bliss I receive but an hour later I can consistently count on a physiological dip.  If you meet me during this dip and after not having stretched or loosened up the tightness in my body for some time you would be meeting a less confident woman who carries herself differently In the world.  Trust me I have tested this correlation time and time again.  I have come to realize that we can’t express next level of confidence without looking at our bodies, our minds and our spirit.  I recently heard Deepak Chopra give a talk on body mind medicine to about 2500 people in California.  Not only are we interrelated on the global front through, commerce, our monetary system, the way that germs and epidemics travel  but we are also interconnected within  our own being.  A truly confident woman gains strength from a fully respected, fully charged body from a mind that is clear and rested and a soul that is deeply expressed, in the way that she shows up contributes and lives in this world.

 This month in the Essential Feminine Living Room we will be discussing next level confidence.  We will look at the many components that go into a confident well-lived life.  When you line up the different areas we will be looking at and incorporate them into your life you will have the opportunity to take your confidence to a whole new level.  Check our blog each week as we will be adding more food for thought.  Today, take a look at your life and decide of the areas we have covered, which ones you need to view more closely to gain far more confidence in your life.  Join us on June 22 from noon to 1:15 p.m. PDST for our next Living Room.  Register now to save your seat.  http://theessentialfeminine.com/shop#living.  As usual there will be an opportunity for conversation and networking.  Share the word.
