This blog post is about the relationship between service and success.
I've just come back from a two week off grid experience, in an incredible space called Terra Alta, Portugal. I haven't quite found the words yet to express how transformative this experience was, and how it has ignited another kind of awakening within me, one where ecological literacy and stewardship of our planet take precedence. I'll share deeper about my experience in another post soon.
In the meantime, I want to share with you some thoughts on the relationship between service and success.
Spending my days sleeping in the forest, taking care of the land, harvesting our food, and being in sacred community has reminded me that we can be in service every moment, and that it’s this that allows us to live a rich and nourishing life.
When it comes to our businesses, what I’ve seen with myself and with my clients is that when we allow our desire to truly...
This blog post is about feminine leadership.
Social media is shaping our quality of leadership - and not necessarily for the better.
Let me explain my thinking around this.
Through the very way it’s been designed, it teaches us to be ‘followed’ and ‘liked’.
But the way I see it is that true leadership isn’t about being followed - it’s about helping people to lead themselves.
And should we really strive to be ‘liked’?
As if somehow, if we don’t get enough likes, what we have to say is worthless?
I’ve noticed that my content that really speaks to the change I want to see (and brings in clients who feel the same way) rarely gets lots of likes. I could spend hours hypothesising about why, but what I do know is that if we as leaders of change are constantly getting lots of applause, we’re probably not yet sharing our deepest truth.
What does this mean for YOU?
Let go of caring about vanity metrics.
Say what needs to be...
This blog post is about learning to trust yourself.
Over the past 18 months, I’ve had my eyes well and truly opened and I believe that as a result, my work is becoming richer and more powerful. I’m not here to be right - I’m here to make a fucking difference in anyway that I can.
I believe that when more women trust themselves and their inner wisdom, and follow that guidance, the world will become a fairer, more harmonious balanced place.
When we don’t trust ourselves, we hold ourselves back, we make shitty decisions, and end up dying with our music inside of them. I don’t want this for you.
And not only that, especially now, in the age of fast media, it’s really difficult to know who to trust about anything. The pandemic is a prime example - there are lots of different...
This blog post is about making sure your biz is ethical as possible.
After the two years that we’ve just had, how the fuck could it be business as usual, right?
The cracks in our capitalistic, ego-driven, patriarchal, white supremacist, and ecology-destroying society are well and truly visible and there are some things that can now never be unseen.
Racial inequality. Gender bias. The increasing gap between the rich and poor .The escalating climate crisis.
I have to admit, there have been times over the past year when it's felt really hard to keep my focus on my business with so much chaos happening.
Guilt. Overwhelm. Shame. Fear. It's all come up.
But so has: Hope. Determination. Commitment. And faith.
As I see it, our businesses can either perpetuate damage caused by the system. Or they can provide regeneration, healing and hope....
This blog is about optimising your social media content so that you don't have to be on there all day every day.
Contrary to what many business coaches out there are saying, you DO NOT have to show up on social media every day to skyrocket your business.
Think quality, not quantity.
Your content isn’t there to drive engagement or to even build your following - it’s there to position you as a leader, showcase how you can help your people and usher them into an offer that’s going to rock their world.
One post with clear, potent magnetic messaging, is worth twenty lacklustre posts.
But alas, messaging can be tricky - we often find it difficult to see our own magic and message, which is why getting an expert's eyes on your work can save so much time, tears and tantrums (hint hint - I'm here to help you *ahem*).
But to get you started, here are four magnetic messaging tips:
This blog post is about attracting clients who're ready and prepped to get results.
It's really simple: if you want empowered clients, you need to ensure that you create empowering content.
As priestesses, we’re here to facilitate the evolution and healing of our planet - so why on earth would we want to remind people of their pain and then agitate it further?
Yet this is just one of the copywriting marketing techniques that’s widely taught to online coaches and healers to create clients online.
A popular formula is known as PAS:
This type of marketing is not only highly unethical (it triggers and exploits unresolved trauma), but it also runs the risk of bringing clients into services who may not yet be ready to take full responsibility for their journey.
I don't know about you, but I much prefer to bring in clients who are a joy to work with, and although there will be ups and downs on the journey (building a business is...
This blog post is about the energetics of receiving as a woman.
I believe that, as an act of rebellion against a system that devalues the feminine, it’s vital that women relearn how to receive.
Like most young women, up until my late twenties, I had a habit of putting my needs at the bottom of the list. This meant that I found it difficult to receive anything: help, compliments money, because my culture had conditioned me to believe that good women were supposed to be selfless.
And yet there was also a desire within me to thrive meaning that there was always conflict between my innate desire and capacity to be fully expressed, and my socialisation.
This really showed up for me when I first started my business - receiving felt so unnatural, I cock-blocked myself repeatedly, which led to a...
This blog post is about dismantling unhealthy power dynamics in the coaching industry.
The more that I educate myself on systemic issues, the harder it is to believe that the coaching industry is one only of ‘light and love’.
In fact, I’ve come to the realisation that unless we want to unconsciously perpetuate harm, it’s necessary to question and shift unhealthy power dynamics (decolonise) in the coaching industry. This means taking an active stand against any practices that disempower, manipulate and exploit.
I’m very much in the process of thinking this through and questioning my own practices - so I’m definitely not an expert in this.
But I have started the process by reflecting upon the ‘coloniser’s mindset’ & how it shows up in the coaching industry:
- A coach with a ‘coloniser’s mindset’ believes that their coaching, product or service is 100% needed by the client and without it,...
This blog post is about why niching isn't always best practice in online business.
I think the biggest BS I’ve heard about online business is that the only way to succeed is to 'pick a profitable niche' - a niche being a subset category of people, such as 'corporate women who want to lose 10 lbs' or 'divorced women in their 30s who want to feel more confident.'
Here’s what I know to be true.
If your business is only about making quick money, do it - it’ll serve you for a while.
But if you see your business as a means of social revolution and personal quantum expansion, both spiritually and financially, then don’t.
Because many business coaches are far too quick to try to fit you in a box. And they'll even try to convince you to do it yourself.
Me and my clients haven't created sustainable and profitable businesses from picking a fucking niche. We've done it from getting crystal clear on our dharma, choosing to create...
This blog post is about bringing sacred activism into your life and biz.
I believe that our personal development and spiritual awakening means nothing if we’re not here for the reclamation of the whole of humanity. And there’s a lot going on in today’s modern world that we should definitely not be ok with, and commit to changing.
Sacred activism is using our inner work to create wider shifts and changes for the whole of humanity. It’s about leaving our legacy, in a way that gives our life meaning and purpose.
People, communities, animals, ecosystems - they need us. And lets face it, the predominantly white affluent males who’ve been in power have done such a bad job at being custodians of our planet, it's high time we take a seat at the table and start creating some real change.
Here are 4...
