A little secret about getting paid for your passions (almost nobody shares)

You want to do what you love. I’ve talked a lot in this blog about how to find that thing you’d love to do. That’s the easy part. (and if you’re still struggling with that, make sure to grab my Career Clarity Cards, my gift to you)

However, there is a second part to the story. Yes, the story that goes: “Do what you love and money will follow” I’m sure you’ve heard of it.

The thing is… for most of us, it didn’t work like that.
Isn’t it time I share a bit about what it really takes to get paid for your passions?
Because it’s kind of a dirty little secret no one wants to talk about. Continue reading

Career Change: Is this one of your biggest career change fears?

career fearsWhenever we make a career change, we’re confronted with the need to let go.

Maybe it is the need to letting go of your current role, so you can embrace a new one at a different company; but it might also mean letting go of a more cherished part of who you are.

I’m talking about your Continue reading

The path of congruency: How do you know if you are on the right path?

Many people have a simplistic idea about what finding their path really means.

But as I mentioned in The 3 paths of Purpose, we are really walking 3 different paths at the same time:
-The path of congruency
-The path of growth and
-the path of contribution.

In this interview Oprah asks Caroline Myss how can anyone know when they are on the right path. And to me, what Caroline is describing here is the Path of Congruency.

I’ll let Caroline explain, in this short video, what walking the path of congruency looks like Continue reading

Find your Purpose series (part 3): The Path of Contribution

There is an interesting fact about elderly people.
If you ask them what knowledge they’d love to pass onto younger generations, most of them would say some version of:
“Life is short. So find something you really care about, and focus wholeheartedly on it.”
“Spend more time with the people you love, and don’t take disagreements with them too seriously.” Or…
”Love is all that matters, so find something you love doing and be with those you love”

Maybe that is the best possible definition of life purpose: To do what you love and be with those you love.

And yet, most of us want to find a purpose that is much more specific than that: Continue reading

The 3 essential P’s of a Purpose-Based Business

Have you ever asked yourself what makes a Purpose-based business different from a conventional one?

You could think that just because you know your purpose, and are putting it at the fore front of what you do, that would be enough to guarantee your success; as if some Cosmic Force would protect you and grant you your wish of making a living doing what you love.

I’m not saying “don’t believe in Spirit” (because I personally do) and I love being guided along the way in my business path. All that I’m saying is that apart from Continue reading

About me and my writing -a blog challenge

Coaches are known for asking a lot of questions. I’m curious by nature, you see, so it only made sense that I ended up becoming one.

Questions are valuable, but only if you ask the right ones.
For example, from all the telesummits I’ve listened to along the years, one has really stood up among all. And the reason was that they kept asking the same powerful questions to all the participants. It was great, and finally gave me a wonderful global understanding of the topic.

So when Nina Lenton shared this “chain of questions” blog post challenge, it got me interested right away.

And you know what? If you are not able to answer these questions for your own business (or soon to be business) it means 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).

Maybe you have never openly asked the question: “Why would anyone choose to work with me?”, but the tightness you feel in the pit of your stomach whenever you see the so called “competition” out there, is a clear sign that this question is very present to your mind.

There are several things that make you unique, not only as a person but also as a conscious professional: Your Continue reading
