Opening Up to the Flow of Abundance through Inspired Giving

giving

I recently I read through 30 college scholarship applications. This scholarship – the Julie Amon Dolphins of Strength Scholarship – is given in my sister’s name.

My mom, dad and I started the scholarship 5 years ago to remember my sister and keep her legacy alive. Julie died of brain cancer in 1994. It totally sucked losing her.

Starting this scholarship helped make things better.

We work with my high school alma mater in Florida to identify seniors who have overcome serious adversity and do it with a smile. We chose the winners based on character, leadership, mission and service. My body is all tingly right now as I contemplate who this scholarship will go to this year.

 

I give money from my business to fund the scholarship. While my parents have always been relatively tight and frugal with money, I love to GIVE. I just know that these students need the money more than I do … so I release it to them because I want to INVEST in our future.

And my contribution always comes back to me in such wonderful ways.

Giving opens us up to the wonderful flow of abundance.

I share this story with you to get you thinking about what CAUSE fires you up? What group do you LOVE to serve?

Do you love supporting education? Women’s issues? The environment? Politics? Civil rights? The arts?

The list goes on …

You can give in ways big or small … and it doesn’t really matter the size of your contribution … or if it’s money or time. What’s crucial is that you’re plugged into your WHY and your reason for being here on this earth.

If you need some help identifying your big WHY, keep your eyes open as I’m hosting the Soulful Business, Gutsy Life Giveaway starting April 23. I’ve assembled the dream team of female visionaries to inspire you to greatness. We all will be sharing FREE gifts with you with one sole intention: TO HELP YOU GROW.

The world needs you to SHINE YOUR LIGHT, now. Ready, set, go.

What’s Your Mission?

What I know is this: you have a mission to fulfill in this lifetime. Also called an “assignment,” you said YES to this mission when your soul chose to be born.

Then you were born and you forgot what your assignment was!

And if you’re anything like me, you’ve spent much of your life trying to find your way back to your assignment so you can fulfill it.

This may sound “New Age-y,” but it’s true.

Your mission helps heal the planet.

If you’re not sure what you are here to do AND how to align your mission with your business, you’re not alone … many women struggle here, but you don’t have to anymore.

I’ve figured this out myself after MANY years of zigging and zagging and falling on my face and am SO thrilled to share my sacred steps to success at ALCHEMY Live: Turn Your Gifts into Gold.

Being vs Doing: The Most Powerful Piece of the CEO Puzzle

being

How often do you allow yourself to BE rather than compulsively DO?



Some of the downsides of Western culture are:
•    Our addiction to habitual DOING
•    Overscheduling to the point of exhaustion and burnout
•    Creating lifestyles and businesses that are unsustainable

I have fallen into these traps more times than I would like to admit.

How about you? If you are nodding your head yes right now, there’s that saying that validates this habit: wherever you go, there you are.

I write this as I’m 4 days away from the due date with my 3rd child. This is the longest I’ve ever been pregnant. 



My first son Sean was born 2.5 weeks early.

My second son Luke was born 1 week early.

So I was pretty much thinking that this child would be early too. And I put a lot of pressure on myself to get a lot of shit done prior to baby’s (early!) birth so I could then chill out and surrender into the birth experience.

And I did get a lot of stuff done … I’m really GOOD at getting things done and delegating to my team what needs to be delegated. But now as I move closer to birth, I’m seeing where there are still holes that need plugging so I can BE more than I DO in my biz.

As CEO and chief visionary, BEING is the most powerful piece of the puzzle I bring to the table.

As CEO of your biz (and start thinking you are the CEO if you don’t already), you must give yourself more space to BE and DREAM than you do now. Guaranteed.

 I see this all the time with my clients.

Once they start working with me, they see it too because I model it in my biz and teach them WHY it’s important to step off the hamster wheel of habitual OVERdoing. 

Once you step into this mindset, you’ll never want to go back to the old way.

 You actually get more accomplished by doing LESS. Crazy, but true.

This is one of the reasons I attend live events and retreats – both personally and professionally.

When I step away from my computer, to-do list, and responsibilities at home, magic happens. I have SPACE to conceive of new ideas, develop connections with like-minded entrepreneurs and human beings, and simply BE. I make more money attending events than I ever do sitting at home at my computer running my business.

Attending events is my secret sauce.

And I want it to be yours too so I created ALCHEMY Live: Turn Your Gifts into Gold. I know you need it deep down in your bones, in your heart, in your soul.

Business doesn’t have to hurt so much. It can be fun. Promise.



BE more than DO.

You Are Enough

I guarantee that you’re AMAZING at what you do. One of the best.

You don’t need to become better at your craft to grow your business and attract clients who will easily pay you top dollar. Not necessary.

What you DO need to become better at is being a GUTSY BUSINESS WOMAN.

Your tribe of committed, amazing clients is waiting for you to TRULY understand their needs and problems and package your solution in an elegant, easy-to-understand offering that makes it a no-brainer for them to commit to their growth with YOU as their guide.

It’s that simple.

But you’re going to have to change your way of thinking and doing business if you’re serious about taking your company to the next level.

You need to think more strategically.

You need to learn to leverage your time and expertise (stop giving it away!).

You need stronger boundaries.

You need more clarity in your mission and message.

You need to fall in love with marketing and create your sacred marketing plan (think of it like a beautiful ATM machine).

You need to make more consistent offers for clients to engage with you to solve their problems … and (here’s the kicker!) to be OPEN to receiving an unlimited flow of money for your talents.

YOU CAN DO THIS, but you can’t do it alone.

The Power of Live Events: Connections, Clients, Clarity + Cash

Live Events

One of the biggest things you can do to grow your business is to get out from behind your computer.

I see way too many biz chicks hiding out behind their technology, behind their screens, behind their emails, behind their social media posts.

All of that technology is great, trust me. Online business is amazing. Love it.

I’m so grateful that we are in this day and age where we have technology at our fingertips. Most of the technology is no cost or low cost technology, which has just revolutionized our potential to connect with people in this world.

However, business is not done behind computer screens exclusively. It’s simply not.

People do business with those who they know, like, and trust.

In order for you to really get out there, and grow your mission and your movement, you’ve got to get out from behind your screen. You have to quit hiding.

I learned this early on in business. I was kind of staying in my little box, and hiding out in my safe zone in New York City. I mean I was in the largest city in the country I figured … wasn’t that enough to grow my fledgling business?

No.

When things really started moving for me was when I got gutsy and bold and went to my first-ever female entrepreneur conference in 2009. And I will never forget signing up for that conference. It was so scary, yet I knew I had to do it. I felt like I was being led in that direction.

Prior to signing up for this conference, I remember listening to a free call hosted by Ali Brown, the woman who was leading this event and it was just what I needed to hear.

Her energy, her message, the opportunity was custom-made for me. That was how I felt and I was listening to her call. I was was fired up listening to what was possible for me that during the call I was on a travel website looking at flights and hotels because I knew I was going.

Let me set the scene for you …

This conference was in Las Vegas. I was living in New York City.

I knew nobody going to going to this conference. I didn’t even really know the woman who was holding the event too well, I had just heard of her a few months prior.

This was my first-ever training call of hers I had ever attended, but it was very obvious that what she was offering was just what I needed.

So what did I do?

I made it happen. I did NOT make excuses. I even sold my wedding dress to afford the ticket to attend. Seriously.

I didn’t say, “Well, I can’t afford the ticket fee because my business isn’t making that much money yet,” or “I don’t know anyone so I shouldn’t go,” or, “It’s hard,” or, “I can’t leave my son.” (My son was not yet one year old and I was still nursing him, but I made the decision to pump the whole time I was away!)

Yes, I went. I made the decision. I made the decision to go. And that event changed the course of my business and my life forever.

Me taking the stage for a Business Makeover at my first-ever entrepreneur conference.

Me taking the stage for a Business Makeover at my first-ever entrepreneur conference.

Let this statement sink in: the event changed the course of my business and my life forever.

I made so many connections at the event. I am still close with a number of people I met there. I ended up joining a high-level coaching and training program at that event so I could learn from the best about what the heck I was doing in my business instead of trying to just f figure it out on my own because it wasn’t working. It just simply wasn’t working.

And it was all because I went to that one event. So, if you are struggling right now in your business, and you’re not really sure what’s next, or how to do it, or just you’re on the verge of giving up, because it’s just too damn hard, then I will say to you, get out from behind your computer.

Go to networking events, go to workshops, retreats, big events that you just feel called to go to led by a coach, a guide, a teacher, who you resonate with. There’s something about her or his path that calls out to you. This is what you need to do. This is what you need to do. Go to live events. Do not give me excuses for why you can’t make it happen because you can. You TOTALLY can.

Think about landing one new client from going to an event. What’s that worth to you?

How about creating a package or a program that can double, triple or quadruple your income this year? All because you have the sacred space to conceive of that idea. Because you’re around other big thinkers.

That is what happens when you go to live events.

So, make it happen, no excuses. We’re talking about your business here. You need to be a big girl. Put on your big girl panties and be a CEO.

If you ever want to truly make it in business. It’s not about making excuses. Go read an autobiography of any successful business person and they didn’t get to where they are because they made excuses. They got to where they are because they made decisions, and they knew how to take risks, and they got themselves in situations around other people who could help them move to the next level.

This is the power of live events, and this is what I want you to experience in your business.

Ready to experience a live event like no other?

HEADS-UP: This is NOT some same-old, business-as-usual workshop in an uninspiring windowless hotel meeting room. You know, the ones where the speakers do all the talking while you just listen.

It’s going to be an extremely fun, sacred and adventurous entrepreneur meeting of the minds, hearts and souls.

Yes, you’ll receive the business training you need to advance, but you’ll also experience an alchemical mixture of being in nature, dancing to connect with your raw feminine energy, sacred self-care, laughing your head off and seriously the best networking you can imagine.

Part business event, part sacred retreat, part experiential adventure … everything you need to move to the next level in your business and your life.

The doors CLOSE on our early-bird registration on Sunday, April 13.
