At the end of the six-month trial period, and after demonstrating my value to Alexis, I re-evaluated my goals and vision for my future in the world of finance, and what transpired was the epiphany that I wanted to turn what I was doing for Alexis into a business for myself. I engaged two new clients within a few months of making this decision and incorporated six months later…
Fortunately for me, the Stars were in alignment. Moments before new contracts were being negotiated for the following school year, my best friend invited me to go to Las Vegas along with her family. My friend’s mother, along with her employer, was participating in a conference, and her employer was in need of childcare for her two children during the hours of the conference. That employer was Alexis Martin Neely. By the end of the weekend, Alexis approached me saying…
And then something magical happened. When I went to study with some very special yogis in Colorado, I also met a lovely sister of my heart – Amrita! She welcomed me into Eyes Wide Open and it’s been an incredible journey of so much learning, on many different levels. And one of the deepest gifts of working with Eyes Wide Open has been this learning that I can create what I love.
My Liberation Love Story has gone from “get by, keep house, and give kids the best I can,” to now having as much time and financial liberation as I desire to support my kids with their passions. And… I have extra to spoil myself and my husband which feels great! The joy of being able to do extra beyond our kids’ needs is liberation, indeed.
So, ten months ago, I made the leap. I left my job at YEA! and started working with Alexis as a Law Business Success Coach with New Law Business Model, and went to visit Kiva Leatherman in New Hampshire for three days of brainstorming about entrepreneurial archetypes. It was all starting to come together. Not only was my lifestyle shifting (I can now work from anywhere, create my own schedule and be more particular about the projects I take on), I’ve also started my own business Embodied Action Coaching and I can honestly say that I love my work AND my life.
My Liberated Love Story begins last October, with my lovely cousin Lara Berg (Creative Director for Eyes Wide Open) helping me to begin my path to Liberation! I was in a very happy time of my life as I was newly married, but I was trying to mask a deep inner struggle as well. I was slowly trying to integrate my passions and my visions for the world into my working life, but was consistently told that it would not be successful: “you won’t make any money; it sounds more like a hobby to me; I don’t think it’s a good idea; why don’t you get a regular job?” I was attempting to break free of these remarks by promoting my blog about health and wellness, but the comments by others were wearing down my normally “watch me” attitude and, thus, causing me to sink deeper into this hole that I was desperately trying to escape from. A “normal job” to me meant trudging to an office every day, staring at the clock, waiting for the day to end, making money – a drone, a robot, a zombie.
Whenever you invest in yourself, the universe invests in you. As soon as you do that, the universe gets the message that you’re ready to receive more abundance and mirrors that back to you.
The program has helped me clarify my understanding of the true value of my Get Yourself Into College™ program, my Money Map number, and the needs of my students and their families, which has made it easier for me to start creating a pricing model that benefits everyone. Structuring my business to make sure that I meet all these needs in a way that aligns with my value and my mission is an ongoing process that’s much easier now.
“I think I need another 6 months to process everything that went on in the Mastermind. The guidance was so perennial and high-level that I could literally listen to all the calls over again and get even MORE GUIDANCE!”
It has been SO amazing. What I remember, having my very first call, I was sitting at my desk where I worked, door closed… and I knew what I wanted. I wanted to build my business in a way that felt whole to me, in a way that I felt embraced the feminine part of me. In the corporate world where I was working, it was all ‘push, push, push’ and that was my “skill” – I could get stuff done! But this old way doesn’t support me in my own business, and so I really wanted to be in a space of people who were able to let things happen AND get things done. I didn’t know how to have the balance. And learning to obtain this balance has been the best gift that I have obtained through this amazing community women, the Priestessmind. The ability to ‘let things go’ and be able to just feel and know things are happening!
