From Burned Out to Filled Up

It’s my final morning in Costa Rica.

I’m sitting outside on my balcony in my comfy plush robe listening to the birds and roosters do their thing (I’m going to miss them!).

The view in the distance is stunning.

I came here to hold space for my mastermind clients to transform and rise higher in their work.

grass

What I didn’t realize when I got here is that I came here to heal and get clarity about the next steps on my journey.

Last year was the most financially successful year in my business. I’m proud of that. We tested a lot of things to see what works and what doesn’t.

More than $40,000 worth of Facebook ads, oodles of Facebook livestreams, 5 free Challenges, 4 live events, VIP Days, webinars, and close to 100 podcast episodes.

A LOT of creation and growth.

A LOT of time invested.

A LOT of people helped.

And in the last quarter of the year: BURNOUT.

Burnout from the chase.

Burnout from shaky boundaries.

Burnout from working through a major parenting challenge with my oldest son Sean while simultaneously leading a very complex launch of Get Gutsy Coach Training School.

As we ended the year, I simply knew that I could NOT continue doing business and life in that same way for 2017.

No effing way.

My body was starting to feel weak.

I was angry and tired.

This weeklong retreat in Costa Rica could not have come at a better time, not just for me, but for my clients.

Oh, the layers that were shed. The tears. The epiphanies. The healing.

I got back to my roots: COACHING THROUGH A SPIRITUAL LENS.

I led sacred circle, journeywork, meditation. Used essential oils, sage, palo santo and fire. Built altars. Called in angels, spirit guides and healers.

tree

Gave valuable feedback as each client went to the front of the room (usually barefoot) to deliver their talk that will help them attract more juicy clients.

Coached my clients to pivot. And surrender. And attract more of what they want while saying NO to what they’ve outgrown.

My people are all going home with a plan to bring in sacred sales, confidence that it can be easy and fun … and a deep connection to their soul.

As for me, I’m going home healed. Lighter. And focused on who I REALLY am.

As my client Christine Dyan described me, I’m a “business coach and spiritual guide all in one.”

It’s so easy to follow the crowd. Listen to the noise. Forget your true essence and what you LOVE to do and are fucking great at.

When you are growing a business, you feel like there are a million things to do to be successful.

When you strip all the noise away, typically what you need to focus on is this >> understanding your ideal client and selling them what they want AND what is in alignment with your greatest gift.

In one word: SALES.

Yes, there are important strategies and tactics that support selling, but sales is what you need to be looking at.

I don’t want you to get overwhelmed by all of the options out there – list-building, podcasts, telesummits, videos, blogging, retreats, social media, livestreams, live events, masterminds, challenges, ads.

OMG – head spins, right?

Less is more here. It’s the way of the essentialist.

This retreat in Costa Rica started out as a divine download in a Kundalini yoga class last summer. I heard the message loud and clear, “Jenny, it’s time to lead a retreat in Costa Rica.”

I hope my story is living proof that when you work with Spirit in your business, you will live a life beyond your wildest dreams.

Honestly, there is no other way. This is the way.

Many thanks to the angels + spirit guides who assisted in the transformative journey this week.

Our altar is an ode to the spiritual path that forms the foundation of my work.

A cycle has ended for me … and fresh beginnings call me forward.

I don’t know exactly where 2017 will take me (that’s the fun of it!), but I do know I walk in faith.

And I am so excited to deeply support lightworker leaders in experiencing sacred success without the stupid burnout that is SO unnecessary and so rampant in this industry.

Stop trying to slay a larger to-do list and instead say NO to anything that steals your joy. Say NO to the noise + the compare + despair trap. Say NO to the race to nowhere.

Leave space for the OMG YES that will take you where your soul yearns to go.

P.S. Want to coach privately with me?

I am excited to announce that I’ll be supporting a small number of private clients to help you grow your business in 2017. This is the first time in a while that I’ve opened up space to work with me 1:1. It simply feels right.

When we work closely together, I can really get to know you and your work inside out. We can eliminate all that isn’t serving you and ensure you are on a pathway to sacred success.

Honestly I’m excited to receive more of these emails from clients >>

Subject line: I DID IT

Body of email:

You can add me to your success list of clients who run a six figure business.

Boom.

Boom.

Let’s map out your plan for 2017 so YOU too can live a life beyond your wildest dreams.

10 Reasons You’re Not Further Along In Your Spiritual Online Business

I’ve been seeing an interesting theme lately: aspiring entrepreneurs not truly understanding what it is to BE an entrepreneur.

As a result, their business goes nowhere.

They spend all of their time posting inspirational messages + pretty graphics on Facebook, never make offers, have little to no systems, and then wonder why the cash flow is more of a light trickle (if any at all) rather than a consistent flow of abundance.

It seems that some business owners are simply afraid to double down and INVEST in their business.

One obstacle or challenge sends them into a tailspin as they believe that a roadblock means they should throw in the towel and quit.

I’ve got news for you, if you call yourself an entrepreneur, then you must truly be one.

I’ve found that many I meet actually have more of a freelancer vibe.

The two are VASTLY different.

Definition of an entrepreneur:

“a person who organizes and operates a business or businesses, taking on greater than normal financial risks in order to do so.”

Definition of a freelancer:

“a person who works as a writer, designer, performer, or the like, selling work or services by the hour, day, job, etc., rather than working on a regular salary basis for one employer.
 
a person who contends in a cause or in a succession of various causes, as he or she chooses, without personal attachment or allegiance.”

As an entrepreneur, you MUST be willing to take on greater than normal financial risks … and you MUST have an allegiance to your cause.

Do you have BOTH feet in?

Or do you dip a toe into the water until the temperature becomes too uncomfortable?

Be honest.

If you don’t know me that well, allow me to introduce myself … I’m Jenny Fenig and I help spiritual entrepreneurs make a massive impact with their tribe through their gorgeous online business.

cheerleader Jenny

I build powerhouse brands using a potent blend of your mission, message, marketing/sales + mysticism.

Listen – many believe that it’s wrong to make money from your spiritual gifts.

I disagree.

Strongly.

Coming out of the spiritual closet so you can do the work you came here to do is your divine assignment from God. Make no mistake about that.

If you are READY to touch more lives with the wound that is your message and help more people, it’s time to BREAK FREE + claim your spot at the entrepreneurial table.

It’s time to grow your TRIBE like the leader you are.

To help you do just that, I’ve compiled the 10 reasons why you’re not further along in your business and how I’m helping the truly committed to RISE ABOVE.

Let’s go …

1. You compare yourself to others who are further along (and more invested) and feel crappy because you’re not achieving the same level of success. Then you just try to copy them. It doesn’t work.2. You sign up for courses and programs ready to make a change in your business, then freak out at around week 2 when you realize there is work involved.

3. You mistake busyness for business.

4. You don’t think you can afford to get help and instead focus your energy on $15/hour tasks rather than revenue-generating actions that actually grow your business.

5. You are a professional fire killer. You are in full reaction mode all of the time as you have no systems or structure. You fly by the seat of your pants and are worried that your business may crumble at any moment.

6. You waste more time on social media than you’d like to admit instead of strategically connecting with prospects and clients by posting high-value content AND offering opportunities for your tribe to BUY from you.

7. You have no list and aren’t consciously building one. Or you have a list but you rarely communicate with them because you don’t have a content strategy plan.

8. You’re scared to “sell” because you don’t actually know what you’re selling or how to have a meaningful sales conversation. You haven’t quite figured out how to package your magic and transform the lives of your people.

9. Investing in yourself is a foreign concept. You keep looking for free and cheap to grow your business.

10. You’re looking for shortcuts and magic pills. You don’t recognize opportunities disguised as work.

As Richard Branson recently said, “If you spend your time looking for shortcuts, you will find one — right out of business. Creating a successful and profitable business takes time, since you build your reputation as customers learn to trust and rely on you, one by one.”

Just because there isn’t a shortcut doesn’t mean you can’t get HELP.

I know what you NEED to MAKE IT as an entrepreneurial leader who leverages the power of your message, marketing, systems + mysticism to get your big work out there.

And I also know how EASY it is to get frustrated by all of the decisions and bright shiny objects and give up on your big, gutsy dream.

I also have a deep understanding of how our time can feel very scattered and tight (as a mom of 3, I GET IT!). When building a business and growing your body of work, this can be challenging.

And, you can rise above.

I want to help you do the work you were put on this planet to do … because I know you are tired of wasting precious time and energy trying to figure it all out on your own.

That’s why I’m making this invitation to you to join my coaching mastermind + spiritual leadership incubator called GLOW. This is my 6th year leading this type of journey for my tribe, and I couldn’t be more excited about where we will go together.

So we’re clear, this experience is a game-changer. The faint of heart or chronic excuse-makers need not apply.

P.S. I used to let FEAR rule me! But then I chose to RISE ABOVE, look the TIGER in the eye and walk right through that FEAR.

Since then, I’ve redesigned my business from the ground up with my spiritual relationship as THE foundation for my extraordinary growth.

Spiritual growth = business growth.

My business generates multiple-six-figures.

I have a fantastic team supporting me.

My tribe grows every day … and I adore them.

My personal life with my husband and 3 children is deep and meaningful as I’ve designed my business AROUND my desired lifestyle (not the other way around).

I want to help YOU create YOUR dream by helping you LAUNCH to your next level.

Fly Your Freak Flag High + Proud

AlchemyLive-67

Imagine this:

  • You launch your newest creation online and within days it sells out
  • You write a blog post that goes viral, netting you an invitation to speak at a MAJOR industry event
  • You receive cards, gifts, emails, phone calls from happy clients, customers and fans thanking you for changing their life
  • You build a community of thousands of like-minded peeps eager to hear your message and learn from you
  • Your email is filled with opportunities from prospects and sales from customers – and this all happened through the power of automation
  • You design a lifestyle that fuels you on the deepest level
  • You can’t wait to get to work everyday doing exactly what you were put on earth to do

It’s all possible. All of it. All of your crazy drama around not enough clients and not enough cash flow and not enough time can go away.

But not until you GET KNOWN ONLINE.

The Internet is here to stay and it’s up to you to maximize it to its full potential to help those beautiful people you are here to serve.

Ready to step up and get serious about growing your body of work?

In a survey with entrepreneurs, I uncovered some major FEARS. Can you relate to any of this?

  • Failure
  • Loss of money
  • Not being able to get clients
  • That people won’t want to buy what you have to offer
  • If it’s not “perfect,” you can’t launch it
  • Spending money you don’t have
  • Not knowing how to get known to the clients who need you
  • Being visible
  • Not enough time to get it all done
  • Fear of success and leaving the pack behind
  • (The list goes on!)

If you said OMG YES, you’re not alone.

I’ve been there, done that since I started on this entrepreneurial path in 2008.

When I left my lucrative corporate life behind in November 2007, I didn’t realize all of the pieces of the puzzle that would be required to succeed as a coach.

I thought just being an AMAZING COACH would be enough.

No, no, no.

I was wrong.

It was when I started learning from entrepreneurial powerhouses who had created HUGE engaged tribes that I realized the power of TRIBES.

And since then, I’ve been on a mission: to lead my tribe of spiritual business leaders to answer the call of their soul through their gorgeous body of work.

Because I didn’t want to cap out at only being able to help a handful of clients at once.

My time on this planet, in this body, in this lifetime is limited.

I’m not going to be selfish by keeping my gifts to myself or only sharing them with my private clients.

I KNOW it’s possible to touch millions of lives with my message.

And I know it’s possible for you too.

It’s time to go further.

How have I attracted a community of tens of thousands of email subscribers, readers, podcast listeners and social media fans?

I FLY MY FREAK FLAG high and proud.

IMG_0744

That’s right.

I don’t try to be like everyone else in the coaching space.

I REVEL in being my unique self.

And I bring this into all I do.

At my live retreats, I’ve incorporated amazing experiences like firewalking, hiking, vision boarding, hula hooping, yoga, hot tub masterminding, dancing, healing circles, and shamanic rituals … to open up crucial space for business growth.

In my courses and programs, I weave in guided visualization and meditation to anchor in the experience.

On my podcast, I’m totally me. I say whatever flows through me. I don’t censor or edit out the realness.

In my book, I GO THERE. I expose the deepest parts of my story to give the reader permission to celebrate the wound that is your message.

We believe in creating a high-touch company to make our students and clients feel welcome and loved.

Cards in the mail, notebook covers featuring student photos, and welcome phone calls are standard operating procedure for our sacred leadership incubator and mastermind called GLOW and our epic experience for coaches called Get Gutsy Coach Training School.

GET GUTSY GALAXY is the name of our tribe.

I’ve been into celestial energy and space since I was a little girl.

I even went to Space Camp when I was in middle school and was Commander of our mission (had to apply for that position and write an essay about why I was the right person for the job).

The stars, sun, moon, planets and galaxies totally inspire me. Hence the GALAXY name and branding for my tribe.

I LOVE coming up with names and taglines and brand identity for my creations. And I LOVE helping my clients with this. It’s DEFINITELY in my Zone of Genius.

A total blast for me.

And a total game-changer for your business.

This is how you’ll get the attention of your tribe.

With the world moving a million miles a minute these days, you have to be compelling to get anyone to stop and stay for a while.

This is an art and a science.

And it’s totally doable.

When you know what’s up with your people.

Tribes matter.

It’s a crucial piece in your puzzle.

YOU NEED TO LEARN HOW TO BUILD YOUR TRIBE.

This is the missing link for you.

Until you truly say YES to growing your business by BUILDING YOUR TRIBE, you will stay exactly where you are now (or worse, you’ll quit because it will get too freakin’ hard).

Once you get this, everything will shift. EVERYTHING.

One of my favorite quotes of all time about the power of a TRIBE can be found on this gorgeous graphic:

And I’d love to read your COMMENTS below… Your vibe attracts your tribe. What’s your vibe? Who’s in your tribe?

“It’s Orgasmic,” She Said.

A few months ago, I received an email from a gal in my local community named Lacy. Something about it spoke to me very deeply.

Lacy found me through my book “Get Gutsy” in our local bookstore called The Bookloft in Great Barrington, Massachusetts. Lacy told me she HARDLY ever went into a bookstore and up until that point hardly had ANY time to read due to her very senior corporate position with its heavy workload.

But my book caught her attention that fateful day.

She bought it, read it AND responded to an email I have set up that goes out to our readers who opt in for our book bonuses.

When Lacy shared more about her career story and what she was looking for with her next chapter, I INSTANTLY felt that she had what it took to be a coach. I also knew with every fiber of my being that the Universe had delivered her to me to serve.

And so I stepped up and did my job: I INVITED HER TO APPLY for my awesome coach certification program Get Gutsy Coach Training School.

Lacy answered the call.

I’ll share her testimonial in a moment …

But before I do, I want to say this:

I know you may be on the fence about taking the next step.

I know you may be scared shitless.

I know you may wonder where you’ll get the money for tuition for this coach certification program.

TRUST ME: saying YES to this decision will change your life + work FOREVER.

Get ready for clients who are psyched to work with you.

Say YES to setting your own hours.

Say YES to creating value-packed programs, packages, courses and workshops.

SAY YES TO YOUR CALLING.


Here’s Lacy Consolini’s story, in her words.

Lacy C

“I have described working with Jenny a few ways: Energizing, glittery, and breathing life back into a slowly dying soul.

Taking it to the next step and training under her, I can best explain by saying it is like having an EpiPen in your hand while standing in a swarm of bees. She makes you go deep. She is the mirror we all need, the soft hand to hold, and the kick in ass when we are stuck.

Get Gutsy Coach Training School was not just a training course or certification opportunity. It is that gift that keeps on giving. The skills, tools, and tips she shares are ones you can apply to everything in your life or biz. She is a true mentor, teacher, role model, and most of all she is REAL!

Taking her course with the goal of growing my business after being in a corporate role for 25 years was frightening, exciting, stressful and more. Working with Jenny and her tribe has provided the support, lasting friendships, and unlimited possibilities for years to come. It has helped me step out of the Co-Pilot seat into the Pilot seat.

I have always said, gift-giving starts at home! Yes, I gifted this course to myself and I encourage you to as well. It’s ORGASMIC.”


Wow!

My trainings have been described in various ways – this is the first time “orgasmic” was used. I’ll take it!

Reminds me of that classic restaurant scene from “When Harry Met Sally” with Meg Ryan and Billy Crystal. Gotta love the line that comes out of that scene, “I’ll have what she’s having.”

Do you want to have what Lacy’s having?

YES?!

Want to be a Coach?

I have a few questions for you:

  • Have you been the go-to gal for advice from friends, family, colleagues and strangers for as long as you can remember?
  • Do you love reminding people of their innate power and gifts?
  • Do you have a knack for lasering in on an issue and shifting to a solution with grace and confidence?
  • Do you read self-help books, blogs and advice columns and think you could write what you just read?
  • Are you ready to step into an exciting, lucrative career and personal growth path called COACHING?
  • Are you committed to being a skilled and intuitive COACH with a solid foundation so your clients get the best results?

If you’re nodding your head YES, know this …

I was once in your shoes: thinking about becoming a coach.

Then I embarked on an extensive coach training certification program in 2008 that turned me into a coach.

In fact, I’m one of the few coaches you see in the online marketing space who actually TRAINED to become a coach instead of just calling myself one.

If you feel you’re being called to the COACHING industry as your career or a supplement to what you’re doing now, but aren’t sure how to actually BE A COACH, you’re going to want to pay attention to this email.

Today we are opening registration for my free awesome webinar for aspiring coaches.
