The 3 foundational elements you absolutely MUST have clarity about before launching your biz.

3 foundations Most heart-centered professionals take their first steps into entrepreneurship with a very incomplete vision of what they really need to build a business. No doubt they put a lot of love, time and effort to lauch it, but then they spend months struggling because nobody seems to want what they have to offer. Ouch!

The reason why this happens is because they lack a real clarity about the 3 foundational elements upon which every sustainable biz is built upon.

You know how things go when you belong to a group of friends, don’t you? If they did something you probably ended Continue reading

The spiritual lesson of choosing your niche

Are you resisting the idea of choosing a niche? There is a saying in coaching that goes like this: “What you resist, persists” Well, most coaches, healers and therapists are doing exactly that.

And guess what they are really doing by refusing to choose a niche? They are persisting in the difficulties of filling up their professional practices with the people that are in real need of their help.

And why do you think I care so deeply about this topic? Because it has been one of the hardest aspects to embrance for myself in my business.

There is a big misunderstanding of what your niche really is. And until you get rid of the confusion, you will remain invisible to the very same people you are meant to Continue reading

What makes you special and unique in the eyes of your ideal clients?

what-makes-you-uniqueOne of the realities of creating a biz is that, there are many, many conscious professionals doing exactly the same things that we do (or want to do).
