Hello there, my friends. It has been a hot minute since I have recorded a podcast episode. But I have definitely been thinking about you and I have to say, I've missed you. I couldn't quite share from where I have been. I feel like I have been in a little bit of a freefall. And I was waiting to hit the ground until I was able to record a podcast and really share with you very vulnerably and just as transparent as can be right because that's how I am not just who I am. But I'm definitely in some uncharted territory in right now. My life and specifically my business feels a little bit messy. It feels a little scary. And there are definitely been some days in the past few weeks where I have not been okay. Now, one of the lessons that I'm learning about myself is that as a coach, I can use my tools almost against me to feel okay or want to put up this facade that Allah McCoach I need to have it together for my clients. But I really learned a valuable lesson in the last few weeks of getting radically, radically honest with myself and the power of admitting that I'm not okay. And now I'm okay I'm feeling better on this side. But this, that's really what this podcast is about is I want to tell you guys a little bit about what's been going on behind the scenes and give you guys some little takeaways because I know that if I'm going through this you're going through it as well. And specifically, I think that if you've been on a journey for a while for your goal and you feel like maybe you lost your way or that you are maybe in the beginning and you feel like you have a long way to go. This podcast is going to be really helpful for you because it can be messy along the way. And I want to remind you that this is all part of it, that it's all still working. So first off, I just want to give you some quick podcast updates. On the last episode or last couple of episodes. I told you guys that I was going to be rebranding this podcast to the new podcast which is going to be called the business of being authentically you with Lauren CSGO. That rebrand is still going to happen but I have put it on hold as I am navigating some new territory in my business. And when it does feel back aligned, I will go ahead and rebrand it. And when I do finally launch it, I'm going to actually create this podcast to have different seasons. So I'll do periods of time when I'm podcasting and take some breaks and they'll have kind of themes to it and it'll be really fun. So that is to come. But until then, I will continue to show up on this under this name the rebel soul podcast as myself and share as needed. And it's going to be sporadically and that's just where I'm at right now my business and you're gonna learn more here very soon. But until then, if you want to be hearing from me more consistently or really staying up to date on my journey, the best place to find me is over on Instagram. I've been still showing up there fairly consistently. Posting to my stories, and also just sharing and creating content. And if you want to stay really up to date the other places to make sure that you're on my email list. I'm going to drop in the link in the show notes. A way to sign up for my email list and you can do that through signing up for my masterclass library. Once you're you sign up for the masterclass library, you'll be on my list and be able to get all the email updates and I'm going to be starting this month. I'm going to be starting to offer monthly free monthly calls where I'm going to be doing either emotional release sessions or inviting you guys to come and do the embodiment technique together. Right. So if you want to stay up to date and learn about when the next calls are going to be and there's gonna be one later neck early part of next week. Go get on my list. Okay, so let's get into all of the details and when I sat down to start taking notes for this podcast episode, I was like, Oh my gosh, I don't even know where to begin. And to be honest, I have been thinking about you guys so much and have been wanting to record a podcast for probably about 10 days now but I just feel like I didn't even know where to start because so much has transpired in the last few weeks and I almost feel like a little bit of a different person. And things were still settling. So here I am today doing the best I can for where I'm at and I know that as I continue to dive deeper into some of the work I'm doing that I'll have more clarity and we'll be able to articulate this an even deeper ways. So really, it started about four weeks ago, I in my mind and my life I was like okay, this is this is it. I'm fucking ready like let's go to the next level. I have over the last three years I have been working on my own coaching technique called the embodiment technique, which in the past I had tons of different variations and have been using it on my clients and myself for many years and it finally is in a place where I was like Okay, I'm ready to put this out into the world. And I it really it was it I feel like this is my life's work. I have never been more clear on my purpose and felt never felt more aligned to who I really am and what I really want and it's so interesting because it's like at that peak of like oh my gosh, like I finally get I have so much clarity this tool that I've been working on is so clear, it gets me results. I did an embodiment experiment and other people got results. I'm just ready. And the universe had other plans for me right so I was just decided to keep on doing what I normally do and as I am called myself the self proclaimed masterclass queen I was like What better way to launch this tool to launch this next round. Of the embodiment experiment by doing a masterclass because it's so fun and so easy. I love doing masterclasses so about a month ago I was I remember it was a Sunday I was so excited to do this. I pretty much worked for like eight hours on a Sunday wrote the sales page. It was like so easy. It was like oh, this is the best sales page ever wrote, This is amazing. I can't wait. Then I woke up Monday morning. And I just didn't feel right. Like something felt off about the masterclass. And I was on I asked my friend and I'm so beyond blessed. That some of my besties some of my best friends are actual coaches. So I'm talking to a friend who is also a coach and I'm telling her what's going on and I'm telling her that I'm just like, you know, I'm like, Oh, I don't I don't think I'm meant to do this masterclass and just talking through it with her I realized that like, oh wait, the only reason why I'm doing this masterclass is because I just I just want to create clients. I want to I want to get this into the hands I want like one on one clients right now. I'm really ready to take on more clients and do deep, deep deep work, and I don't really want to be doing a masterclass I just want to do the clients and it felt like this means to an end. And it's fun because looking back now, at that moment that felt so like it's such an aha moment to be like fuck it, I could just do the thing I want I don't have to do all the the like bells and whistles to get clients. I'm just gonna make this really really simple. But now I look at that and it's like such the surface surface level of what was really going on below. So just in that decision of deciding to like, I cancelled my master class the next day and it felt really liberating and I was like, okay, you know what, I'm going to make this really simple like what I actually know like what I feel so certain about in this world and what I am an expert at, and what I've been doing for myself and my clients for the last five years is helping people find clients. So it's so easy. I know how to sell one on one clients. I'm just gonna go back to the basics. And what I used to do back then, is offer either free calls or console calls, and then would sell people into one on one, one on one packages. So on this call with my friend Carrie, I was like yeah, you know what I just need to like, because she I did some work with her. Basically I gave her a session, and I did the work on her and her like immediate response was like, Holy crap, like, this is so good like that. Like, you need to be getting this into people's hands like I don't know why you're overcomplicating this like you just need to go out there and like do this on people. So that's when I had this idea to do free coaching calls and it was amazing. It felt so fun and easy. I put the offer out there and within like 10 days I had 17 people sign up for free coaching calls with me. And it was just so fun because I remember when I first started as a coach when I was a binge eating coach and I was in like a marketing program and they were teaching us how to like create, you know, free calls or get people on the call with us and it would be like just a struggle to get anybody on the call with me like I had to convince people and I think maybe my first month or first couple of I think it took me like six or seven months to get like 17 people on the phone with me and here it is and like what 10 days getting 17 people on the call with me. I was like, this is the universe telling me this is the time like I know what I'm doing. Everything's coming into play. And I could just like see everything I was doing it was like the best I've ever written copy. It was the best that I've ever like knew exactly how to talk to my client and like everything just felt so aligned. So I thought thought So through these like tightly through like this this month and I think the previous month when I get really really really honest with myself, I was telling myself that I wanted to sign one on one clients, and I was kind of making offers and I think that the biggest like one of the big like lightbulb moments I had was when I was talking to my coach friend. And I was like yeah, I just really, really want one on one clients. And she's like, Yeah, you're saying that but you're not making offers she's like I'm on your list and like you You haven't made offers and I think the question was was like, Why aren't why don't why aren't people signing up? Like I don't know why people aren't signing up and her answer was because you're not making offers. She's like I'm on your list. I'm I follow you like I don't see you talking about your one on one. Like of course people aren't signing up so at that point, I was like, Oh, well that makes sense why I'm not signing clients. So then I started showing up and we started making offers and it just people weren't signing up. So at that point, I was like what is going on? I know this process everything is dialed in, but it's not happening the way I thought and there was kind of inside of me when I got really honest. I just felt like crazy amounts of resistance in pressure and myself. And when I stopped and paused and I really could listen to my inner voice when I asked my inner voice it was like you're just meant to do nothing right now you just need to be the reason why clients aren't coming is because you just need to stop like I didn't realize it because I was wanting I had so much desire to get this out into the world. It was like this like hyper focus in that I was almost creating this unsafe environment in my body because I was so used to just taking so many actions to get the clients and I knew everything that I was doing on the outside was what creates clients. But when I really pause I realized that there was some deep resistance on the inside. And when I stopped and gave myself just a day to like really be with it. I almost felt paralyzed by this because it was so conflicting to my mind that my mind was like, Oh no, you just need to go out and do more. You need to make more offers but everything in my intuition and my being was like, No, you just you have to stop. You have to stop and so in that stopping I kind of I'm calling this letting go a little bit of letting go I created some space. And I was able to breathe for a minute. But then of course my mind was like yeah, but now you need to make money like if you Yeah, but if we stop we in we do the space that you your inner voice knows that you need to do. What are we going to do for money? Right and here's here's really was where some of the problems are happening. In my business since I started I started in May um that made January of 2018 was when I was officially like at the end of December I let go of a corporate job and I was relying just on me to make money for the last five years. And I have and it's been great. And what I now see is that you know first have bringing in like you know two to 3000 I was like yay, two to 3000 I can't believe I'm making that as a coach. And then I finally got to like 5k months and I'm like yay, I can't believe I'm making 5k a month. And then I had almost a whole year of like 10k and above months and I'm like oh yay. This is like amazing. I can't believe I'm making 10k And then I had some $15,000 months and I've even had some $25,000 Cash months in these last five years of being a business owner. And what I didn't realize that I was doing is that I was putting my worth and my identity on being my success was based on being able to make money and continuing to hold that amount of money as my business grew. Now, what I didn't see happening is even though I have the skills and I know how to actually create the money like the things I need to do to create clients. I was doing it in a unsustainable way because I expanded so much so fast but what really caused the problem was the pressure that I put on myself in the meaning that I made to be able to make that money right it was like part of my identity. And at some point, I realized that I just how I continue to how I continue to run my business is like okay, I need to I want to make $25,000 month now what do I need to do to create this money? And it really became this thing where I was chasing the money. And I kind of forgot a little bit about my purpose because I felt like I had to continue to keep up with that level of success in order to feel okay, in order to feel enough and slowly like 1% by 1% by 1% by 1%. I got off track of why I was even doing this work in the first place. And it's this is even kind of hard to admit and I'm actually going to do a whole episode on this. I originally I was originally going to call this this episode chasing money I mean chasing purpose, not money. But that this is like a whole deeper issue. And I want to be very thoughtful about this because I see a huge shift in the coaching industry happening right now. And I know that for myself when I first became certified, there was almost this pressure, especially with the coaching certification that I got certified on. There was like Okay, getting that 100k month was like the milestone of success. Right And from day one that was always my goal was to make 100k And then do it again and then do it more. Right and so I think that there is actually a huge shift that needs to be happening in the coaching industry in the in the personal space industry and anybody that's making money off of their services, that it really has to be coming from our purpose in our soul for it to be sustainable. And what I realized I happen is that even though I was taking all the right actions, and I was doing all the right things and coming up with the best copy and like people love loved my emails and everything. I was energetically blocked inside. I didn't feel safe in my body anymore. In this like I said, this just happens so slowly that I didn't even notice. And yes, I am an expert at emotional release and it's something that I've been working on with my clients and especially the embodiment technique, but I was almost using my work and my tools as a way to feel better. Instead of getting being able to be really honest and just sit with myself. And so during this time this is like a few weeks later I am still showing up still trying to sign clients knowing my inner voice is telling me that I should be resting still kind of resisting it like being like, Oh, I'm just you know this is just me. It just needs more time. And finally, I'm on the call with another coach friend. And she's like, how are you doing? And I just remember being like, I'm not okay friend and I remember just crying. And she being like, finally. Thank you for admitting that you're not okay. Like I've been waiting, like, I've been waiting for this, like, this is what you need. And that was exactly just the thing that I needed to hear and that I needed to admit to myself. To really go even deeper into this confusion and into this like what is going on. That was like happening at that point. It was it was just I didn't know I was questioning everything. And in that and it was really like this is on a Friday and on that Friday, I just gave myself permission to just feel all the feelings and it lasted for about two days. And the next day was like a Saturday and I remember just like walking on the beach like leaving my coach like calling up my coach friends or like I Voxer a lot of my friends or use like WhatsApp with them and we like go back and forth. And we're just like leaving all these like cry Sadie messages to all my friends be like I'm just going through it I'm just crying like I also remember at one point I was laying in bed scrolling through Instagram and like came across the like good news like tanks, good news or one of these like good news things and like just watching all of like the good news stories and like sitting there and just crying like I just went for it. I just like allowed myself to cry for a couple of days. I allowed myself to go to like worst case scenarios of being like whatever I'm not meant to be a coach or whatever I'm not meant what if I'm this is all a lie, right? Like all of those really scary places in my mind, right? Like I allowed myself to go there. And I just completely took the pressure off, right? And I remember like my friend telling me on this call, she's like you're just you just don't feel safe in your body. And it felt so true. It was so true. It was like you're right I don't and so over these like it was probably like a two day period. I just let go. I didn't think about work. I didn't think about my business. I just allowed myself to be where I was I just cried I just I I just went there. And for part of it. It felt a little bit like defeat it felt a little bit like oh, I should. This was the year I was supposed to double my business. Again. This is the year that I was like, I have this technique. I'm supposed to be putting this out there. And like, why is this happening to me? And then there was other times where I was just like in total relief, like thinking about walking away or thinking about not doing it actually felt like relief and that was that was almost scary in a way. But by the end of the weekend and this is like on Monday I did I really I got I got back to this place of like if I could do anything a world what would I be doing and it's exactly what I'm doing right now. It's I know that I meant to be doing this and I really tap back into that passion and like why I even started in the first place. And I realized that over you know it was once again this is like the slow little shift over time that I was really chasing those like vanity numbers, right? Like, oh, the number of clients I'm helping or the number of likes or the number of money that I'm making, that it just was like so off track of why I even started and so this was just a huge thing for me to just continue to surrender and also realize that I knew I was meant to be doing this right to come back to that being like Nope, this is exactly where I'm meant to be. So I gave myself permission and this is when I decided that I'm I'm ready to do things differently. And once again, I'm going to record another podcast episode about this about the shifts I'm seeing in the industry and I've been talking to a lot of colleagues and friends that are coaches or healer spiritual healers that are also feeling this shift and I feel like this needs to be said and it will be set in more of an episode but I just feel like at some point, the way that the growth of the coaching industry is not sustainable and there has to be other ways where it feels fun and we're not just doing things because other people are telling us to do it but we're actually creating a business that's so you need to ask that light as up and so this is just a reminder that we are being led inside every all of us are meant to do things differently. And I'm giving myself permission to stop back stop and get off the hamster wheel from building my business the way that I thought it needs to be. So I can really create it in a way that feels so good and sold it up to me and I can lead myself doing this so I can help others. So I've just took the pressure off. I took the pressure off timelines. And before I remember being like, oh, I want to be making a million dollars in five years or whatnot. I like putting the pressure on it to be now I'm giving myself permission to make less money than I did last year. I'm giving myself permission to let go of everything. And on the other side of this it just feels like so much relief. I feel light again. I feel fun again. I feel like oh, I remember why I started there's like I feel like I'm almost going back to the basics of like building my business from like the from the most core principles of who I am and making it really really really simple. And I just want to give you guys you guys permission to do the same thing no matter where you are in your business. Right? It gets to be easy. And so after this weekend, I'm like okay, what do I do now? Right. So as my brain was saying, well, I need to make money and it's true. Like I there's bills I had to pay, I have a certain lifestyle. I want to be able to do so I need to be able to make money, but I wanted to take 100% pressure off of my business to have to have to do it in any amount of time. So in the conversation over the weekend, my friend had planted the seed, she's like, well, like, maybe you maybe you go work for somebody else, you get another job. And I remember at first there was like so much resistance to that. I was like, No, I don't need to get another job or I don't need to work for somebody else. But on that Monday after just like sitting with it. There was this piece of me that was like there is actually freedom and just having money from somewhere else so that I get to do what I want my business and rebuild it the way I want. So it just happened to be that a couple weeks earlier. A friend of mine who's also a coach friend that has a successful coaching business, reached out to me because she knows that I am a sales specialist and in the past I used to work for other coaches and do like their sales call for them or consult in their business and help them with their sales. And so she reached out because she was having problems with her sales funnel. And ultimately she was asking for my help. So I remembered that and I reached out to her that day and was like, Hey, I know when we talked like a couple weeks ago I told you I wasn't doing that anymore for other people. But in fact, some things have shifted and now I'm open to doing some sales consulting or even doing like sales calls for you like let's chat and right away she got back to me and she's like oh my gosh, yes. Let's get on a call like she's like let me figure out few things. I got to think about this. Within like another hour she's like yes, let's get on a call. We got on the call the next day came to an agreement. I had like in like right away was like bringing in money. It was like literally within 12 hours of making the decision that you know what I I just I know how to make money and this is really the thing that I want to share. With you. When I first started my business. I knew I'm always been in sales. And so I knew that the worst thing that could ever happen in my business is that I wasn't able to make money and then I can go sell myself to somebody else and make money right away. And that's exactly what happened. And there is so much comfort in knowing that no matter what I know how to sell myself and I know how to make money so I'm always going to be okay. And that's why I've always been so passionate about helping other people really learn how to sell themselves. And like learn sales because it's the most valuable skill and so that's always been like my backup my backup knowing is that no matter what I have my own back no matter what I know how to make money. I know how to sell myself, I know how to sell for other people, and that's what I'm gonna do. So it's been it's been a beautiful few weeks. I've just all of these things coming together. It's also been really it's the other thing that's been really surprising, because it's been just about about eight days that I've been working for this other person and I'm having so much fun. I forgot how much I actually love doing console calls and helping other people and I signed two clients for her in the first week. So she's thrilled like she's feeling so much relief. She's like, I love this. This is so easy. This is what I want, right? So it's like it's been I didn't even think of this as an option. But now that I'm here I'm like, this makes so much sense for me just to take the pressure off of my own business and be able to help other people still in the coaching industry helping people get coaching me making money then making money and it just feels like such a win win win for that. So PS if you need some help with constant calls or you want to learn how to sell on constant calls, I'm your girl hit me up. I am for hire right now on that. But the other thing is is that I'm still showing up in my business, right? Like this is just a little side thing that I'm doing that is taking the pressure off. Now I want to make a side note right now for those that still have a corporate job or let's just say you're not a full time coach, and I think that there is it's almost like this ego thing where we want to we feel like we're gonna be better or more like, there's this place where it's like, oh, I make all of I'm fully sustainable and my coaching and in my coaching business or in my spiritual business, like we all want to get to that point where we're like, oh yeah, this is who I am this. I'm an entrepreneur. And I think that it's okay. I think it's actually sometimes an even more integrity for us to be in a place where we are working in a couple of different places because I actually feel more integrity now having a side job and bringing in money where there's no pressure my business because it allows me to do what I want to be doing and not having to be taking action from meeting money. So I just want to give you permission. If you've been feeling bad about having a side job because you still have to rely on your money. You're not a full time coach. Or haven't made enough money to leave your job. It's okay. There's so much of a gift that you're giving yourself by giving yourself the freedom to have money coming from somewhere else or there's no pressure on your business. And I also think that me taking the step back, it's like allowing me to see some things that I haven't seen in the past and it's making me even a better coach and a better person and I'm just in this place where it feels like relief and it feels like a lot of fun. So with that all said though, I'm even even with like a little bit of time and a little bit of space. I'm even more in love with my own business and like knowing that I'm on the right track and that putting this embodiment technique to the world is the right thing. And I can't wait to continue to to just show up and put this out into the world. So right now what I'm doing is my very, very first priority is me, is leading myself is doing my deep, deep, deep work and that's part of it. Like why the in like the downloads I'm getting in my inner voice guidance like the reason why I had to stop and do this work is because I'm teaching embodiment work. And so my work right now is to embody my work on such a deep level that who I'm becoming on the other side of this is going to be unrecognizable to myself and to my clients. And so this is just so amazing that I have the freedom and the space and the time to do this super deep work because already and every single week for the last four weeks I've grown so much that I'm like blowing my own mind in the space of like doing the work myself and leaving myself first. The other thing I'm doing is I'm continuing to show up. If you follow me on social media, you would see that I'm still consistently doing stories creating some content on there. And for me, it was never a time of never a question of like, well, do I not show up? Do I not share because this is just who I am. It's just a habit for me. I always no matter where I'm at in my life, no matter what I'm doing. I always have something that I can say that's going to help and inspire other people. So that's what I'm doing. I'm still showing up as behind the scenes. And it really the only thing that's changed for me and my business is that I'm just not in this place of trying to build programs and selling and heavily selling. Right and I see this that that was kind of a pattern and I can't quite articulate it because I'm not I haven't done all the work around it. But there was a part of me that was like in the last I looked back now in the last like three or four years I've created like probably like 20 master classes I've had like 10 different offers. I've just been creating like a madwoman like creating all the it's all amazing content and I love it but this is just a time for me not to create and it just time for me to be and really embody my work. And it's actually some freedom in that and also it's it's really hard because I love creating I love staying busy and doing things and it's been kind of fun because I've been in scary because I've been a way from my computer and my work a lot more than I ever have in the past. And it's been really good for me to have this space. So I'm not working a lot so much in my business. But one thing that I am doing is I'm still working with my one on one clients, and I'm still taking on one on one clients. And the thing that I really have missed in the last couple of weeks as I gave myself permission to do nothing is really doing this embodiment technique and doing the emotional release of people. So what I have decided is in the month of November, I'm going to each week I'm going to offer a free group call where I'll rotate the weeks between doing emotional release sessions and doing the embodiment technique. And so if you're a current client, if you've never been a client if you're one of those people that took me up on one of my free calls and want to go deeper on this work, I am here I want to coach I want to share I want to keep on doing this work. I'm just not going to charge for it right now. And that's so fun to be able to do this and so once again if you're not on my email list because you'll the details will mostly be in my email list. And then of course I'll share it on the Instagram so get on my email list. Follow me on the gram to hear when these calls are gonna be in what ways to work with me. And I'm just really really excited. I feel like it just I can't articulate it or even say it enough where I can't believe how freeing and fun this gets to be just to show up to show up because I want to show up and I know this is going to change people. So I just want to end with a couple of takeaways and some of like the lessons and little like, I guess little pieces of inspiration for you guys. So here's my takeaways in from what I've learned and what I'm going through, is first, there is no rush. The only reason why we're rushing for anything is because we think that once we get the actual thing we're going to be happier or we're going to feel enough and if you know in your soul that you're meant to help others impact others crate share your gifts with the world. It's inevitable for you. So you can take the pressure off of the numbers you can take the pressures off of having to be do it in a certain amount of time. Because the real joy is in the journey of getting there. So allow yourself to be where you're at right now. The second is there's no shortcut to doing the deep work. If you like I said it asked me four weeks, six weeks ago, my mind would have been like, Yep, this is when the level is happening. I'm ready to sell I'm ready to launch all this shit. And the universe is like Nope, you didn't do the work enough like you still have more embodiment to work if you really want to put this in the world you got to be it. And so this is just the the universe's way of bringing me to my knees so it's forcing me to do the work I have to do we all have to do the work that is assigned to us. And so be okay with where you're at. That's if you ever looked at those charts of like the way to success is like ups and downs and all the round, right? There's no straight path and I hope that me sharing my story helps you see that to where there could be some shame or embarrassment or being like, Oh yeah, I'm taking a step back or I'm gonna go help other people. There's no shame in that you get. You get to be where you're at. And the universe is always leading you on the right path. The next thing is it's okay to not be okay. And I think specially as people that are leaders and want to lead other people that we think we need to have it together all the time. And that we there's like the stigma if we say that we're not okay because people were like, well they should be okay, they have the tools. And yes, we do have the tools. But there's still going to be times when you're not going to be okay and the most powerful thing that we can admit to ourselves is that we're not okay because in that omitting that we're not okay creates the space for something different to happen. And for you to actually be okay and that's been one of it's just been a beautiful lesson and that's also in for my friends that have been that are coaches and that have been watching me and you guys and I can't tell you how many of you guys how many of my friends have been watching me. And then when I finally was like yeah, I'm not okay. They were like, Thank you for admitting that like I've known that why, like, why are you putting on this front? And it's just because I am a master of my tools. And sometimes we can use our tools against us to feel good and to keep on feeling good. And that really is what happened to me. Next thing is, is something isn't working. Stop. Don't try to do it harder. Really, we live in a law of attraction world and when we are in alignment, things are going to float. I think people are going to be lining up to work with you. Things are going to be easy when it's right. And sometimes we are so caught up in trying to make it look one way. We can't see that there is another easier way for the thing to happen and what needs to happen is need to stop so that the other way can happen for us and it's this has been just a huge example and this is really just a like a letting go and surrendering. Next thing I want to share is back to the job right if you have a job right now you should be so thankful that you have the money to support you so that you can really make your passion, your passion and do it in a way that lights you up instead of putting the pressure that you have to do it. Because once you put that pressure on it where it's like the only it's like you have to make this work it changes it and I hate to say that and I wish it doesn't it. I wish it didn't. But knowing what I know now and what I've gone through it's very different when you have a business that you feel like you have to continue to do things so it can make money versus you're doing things because you want to do it and there's no money attached. And knowing now and the way I'm going to build my business is going to be from the unattached place of it doesn't need to make money I'm doing this because I want to and I know that eventually the money is going to come again and that it will be even more than I can imagine and even more than I was making but there's no rush for me to get there. Because right now I'm so happy and I'm so I feel so safe, allowing money to come in other ways. And because now I've taken the pressure off of it coming in it gets it will come in faster and easier through my business and I already feel that shift. And really the last thing is just let that shit go that's not serving you. Right we're we sometimes feel like we have to keep on keeping up that facade or we have to keep on going. But sometimes it's the stopping and the allowing yourself to do something different. That is really what you need. So I invite you guys to follow my journey. I'm going to continue to show up and share vulnerably vulnerable but I can't speak vulnerability and transparently. And sometimes I'm will be in a place where I can't quite share what I'm going through but I always promised to come back and share with you so that you can also learn from this.
