On running your business when life gets in the way

Having your own business is an exciting adventure: You’re following your schedule, you are posting your content, you’ll soon run a promotion for a workshop … and then,  something happens. Life gets in the way.

Because life is unpredictable.
And has the bad habit of not following our plans.

How to make wiser business decisions (true to who you are)

How to make wiser business decisions

Not everyone makes decisions in the same manner. Carl Jung, the swiss psychologist, noticed people functioned in different ways. 

When faced with a choice, some people make decisions based on the facts, the logic behind the choice. While others will decide according to their personal values and what feels right to them.

These differences are based on how we prefer to use our minds. and it’s connected to our “natural mental wiring”, so to speak.

What makes you (and your work) and unique?

For a long time, as much as I disliked the word “competition” and had tried to shift my mindset about it, I couldn’t shake the tightness in the pit of my stomach at the thought of it.

I had just launched my website in English, and I felt like a tiny particle of dust in a vast universe.

I knew it was Continue reading

Is it possible NOT to live your purpose?

Is it possible NOT to live your purpose?

I’m tired of the guilt-based approaches that many experts are using on the idea of “living your purpose”, don’t you?

It’s fascinating to discover we still carry that information in our DNA and our brain…

But what’s more interesting to me is Continue reading

Know yourself: The number one gift of knowing yourself

As a kid, I used to be the typical Nice Girl: Good grades, homework on time, obedient at home…(and not always happy to be so, let me tell you).

Nevertheless, I was scolded off again and again for just one thing…

Most of the times though, I was just Continue reading

5 Things that make you different (so you can stand out) – part 2


5 Things that make you different

In part 1 of this article series, I mentioned how important it is to differentiate if you want to be noticed by those who need your help.

The goal here is to position yourself in the market in a way that makes you stand out from the other professionals.

But I also know that for us heart-centered solopreneurs, not every tactic feels right.

You want people to pay attention to your work…

In other words, it’s important to show up while being truly YOU.

My best advice for building a fulfilling business (skills vs talents vs strengths)

If I had to give you my best advice to help you build a fulfilling business it would be this:
“Get to know yourself …and choose the business path that fits who you really are.”

But, when I say “the business path that fits who you really are”, I’m not suggesting you a focus on using your current skills, because…

It’s not your skills what counts when you want to create a fulfilling path.
Instead, you need to search for something else…

Your Ideal clients: Understand who your ideal clients are

Figuring out who your ideal clients are: what their biggest challenges, dreams, needs and wants are, is one of the most difficult things you will ever do in your business.
It’s difficult, but it’s also a key factor in business success.

You need to be clear enough about who you help as soon as possible, because you won’t be able to attract clients to your practice if you don’t. Period.

  • How will you know where they gather?
  • How will you know what topics to write about that are of interest to them?
  • How will you know where to share you content?
