Hola gorgeous hearts!
One of the things that really inspired me (+ still does) when I’m down in the salt mines of my business, trying to work out the next step, is listening to the stories of other business women who’ve been where I am + have had an insight that’s helped them along.
With that in mind, I’ve asked a number of gorgeous, inspired, soulful business women to share their sacred AHA! moment – of the thing that changed their business.
Today’s insight is for everyone who is thinking about a BIG change.
Lots of love,
TAKING THE BIG LEAP
A few months ago I was pondering over whether my husband and I should take the mad plunge to take our children out of school and go and explore life in a community on a remote Scottish island…
I only left my job a year ago to concentrate on my own business of coaching parents, this idea felt wild, uncontrollable and counter intuitive, it felt that it would be an act of madness to go off on this adventure. To homeschool. To trust the unreliable internet access would be reliable enough to keep blogging, keep up with my private clients and keep my fledgling business running while being able to fully engage in Island life with this fabulous community.
I almost didn’t do it. I almost convinced myself and my husband not to go. I almost let a voice of reason take over.
But then I joined Leonie’s Academy.
I read post after post in the mastermind area and discovered it is full of wonderful beings who have voices of passion, voices of creativity, voices singing how they are living life fully and how they are living their dreams through their businesses!
I realised through Leonie’s own wonderful sharings and materials, and the sharings of many of those in the masterminds who are putting that wisdom into practice that
my life journey and business life are interlinked, in fact they are married, joined and not ever going to separate.
I almost felt like having a wedding ceremony there and then !
This made it so clear to me that living my life with my family on a remote Scottish island is EXACTLY what my business needs.
I am coaching parents, while also parenting my own children in a new and exciting way. I can invite families to join us for guest weeks… I can blog about this adventure, I saw that there is not a magic FORMULA for success, but following my own MAGIC was the success!
How could we not go?
I’m just coming to the end of a massive decluttering process of packing, storing and giving away and we leave this Saturday on our adventure! Huge thanks must go to my husband and kids for being up for this journey and huge thanks to Leonie for the nudge and help in opening the door to the wisdom that says JUMP !
You will only discover your wings if you jump!
