I was a high level commercial underwriter for a major US bank.
I had a great salary and benefits, and I suppose I had built my confidence a bit by working my way up to the high ticket group. (Approving loans in excess of $5 million.)
I had also been studying clinical hypnotherapy and mindset on the side, and discovered I had a knack for helping people get unstuck. But…
I wasn’t prepared for the S@!t-storm of mindset crap that came down the pike in my general direction when I decided to become an entrepreneur. From corporate cubicle to massive exposure, it was time to put my ideas out into the world. And the fear and anxiety crept in…
What if they actually see me? (Hello! You’re an entrepreneur, you HAVE to be seen – especially online.)
What if they don’t like me? (Bloody hell woman, get over yourself!)
What if I’m rejected? (So what? It’s not going to kill you!)
And so it went in my mind. It’s been my battle. But I know that I can help others with this AND continue to grow as well.
If you’re out there and you’re reading this, know that you’re not alone and that I’m here for you. I get it.
And if we all get our messages out there, just imagine the impact we can have. ❤

Lost in a sea of confusion. It happens to the best of us. If you’re feeling confused over the steps to take to live your true calling, you’re not alone.
You can get so caught up in your head that you’re not listening to your heart, and often because you don’t trust it. If you really sit still and listen to that little voice inside of you, it TELLS you what the answer is.
I’m sure you’ve felt it giving you that “nudge”. Reminding you every now and then that it’s there, but you’re not trusting it. You’ve pushed it aside in disbelief, because you just can’t believe that something that you actually feel excited about is the direction you should go in.
But that’s where you’re going wrong, and I’ve done it too. It may be a subconscious limiting belief such as “can I REALLY make money doing that?” Or, “I have to work hard for money”. And then there’s the ever-popular “but what about security?”
I recall when I was considering taking the giant leap from the J.O.B. I became keenly aware of the co-workers around me who were so miserable that it was affecting their health.
You know: The ones who have an excel spreadsheet that automatically calculates how many days are left before retirement. And believe me, some of them had a long way to go, even though they were looking a bit rough around the edges.
Not to be rude, but stress does take its toll.
In clinical hypnotherapy, I had people that came to me wanting me to waive a magic wand and make them get rid of 50 pounds of weight, or whatever their goal was, because that’s what they thought hypnosis was all about. What they DIDN’T get is that All Hypnosis Is Self Hypnosis (as we say in the biz).
So YOU’VE got to want to do the work, and get through your muck: The fears, anxiety, emotional healing – all of it! You have to be willing to go deep and discover what’s holding you back, and work through it.
That’s life in the big city (or the big country – wherever you are!)
Many people (particularly entrepreneurs) seem to strive for the flashy car, multi-million dollar house on the beach, Christian Louboutin shoes (if you’re a woman)…
But that’s not me. I’m a Subaru kind of gal, who would prefer a comfy pair of clogs, and an LL Bean coat. I was built for practicality after all.
My needs are fairly simple. (Nothing against those people who want the other things.)
What burns inside my soul is the desire to leave an impact, by helping people break through the blocks that are keeping them from living a life of passion and purpose.
I can’t take a Mercedes with me when I go, but, I CAN touch lives and make a difference, and that will STAY.
You MUST have a vision FIRST. Get clear on what that is, and the path will be laid out before you.
We get so caught up in HOW to do things. It’s the conscious part of the mind. But the details slow us down.
It’s also known as “analysis paralysis”. It’s the part of us that leaves us spinning in circles; not knowing which direction to take. Then we get stuck in limbo-land.
