It has been one whole year since I first built up the courage to set up my own business. A year filled with excitement, fear, courage, doubt, energy, exhaustion, love, confusion, hope, trust, passion and enthusiasm - literally every emotion under the sun.
Setting up a business on your own has to be one of the most challenging things a person can do. I always knew that I wanted to heal people, to encourage others to be a better version of themselves but for years I had no idea how I was going to do this.
As most of you know, I run two very different aspects to my business. One aspect is that I visit various five star locations in the UK and Ireland working as a visiting practitioner, an Intuitive Specialist. I read people's energy, connect with their past, present and future, use my natural born psychic ability and incorporate energy healing, massage and alternative therapy by means of healing my clients and everyone that I meet.
I have another aspect to the business where I am an Independent Business Advisor. I help others by igniting their passion, defining their concepts on a commercial level, designing USP's and brand standards, by developing signature and results driven treatments, co-hosting business workshops, to name but a few.
Over the past year I have dedicated my time, energy and love to my business in order to ensure my business was a success and that I could afford to live off my business. I literally had to put everything else on hold. For example, over the last year I have worked 6 days a week, sometimes 12/14 hours a day. Having one day off a week wasn't even a day off as I was still mentally thinking and connected to work. I stopped making time to socialise, to workout, to do things for me because I would feel guilty for not working.... does any of this sound familiar?
For those who already run their own business or those looking to do so, it is literally one of the hardest thing to do. Like I mentioned earlier, you will be a bundle of mixed emotions and it can feel like you are going crazy at times. One day you would feel like you are on top of the world, the next you want to quit. You will love your job, you will hate your job. You will feel like you can accomplish anything, you will feel like a failure. You know what... there have been times when I felt all of the above in just one day! AAAAHHHH!
My advice to you is. If you have a vision, if you are passionate about making it a success... go for it! Never let anything stand in your way. Never give up because the day that you do will be the day you were meant to succeed. Plan everything you do in stages. Don't let fear stand in your way. It is OK to ask for help and most importantly, TRUST THE PROCESS. If you were born to do something, you will achieve your dreams. Know that all of the crazy emotions that you are feeling are NORMAL. Every successful entrepreneur has felt the way that you have at one stage or another. You will succeed you just need to remember why you started and never let go of your inner voice.
I want to thank everyone that has helped me succeed on my journey so far. To my nearest and dearest, my incredible family, my loyal friends, to those who leave such beautiful comments on social media and my blog and of course to all of my inspirational clients. You have taught me so much about life and reminded me daily as to why I am doing what I am doing. Thank you all for your constant support, your constant love, your words of wisdom, for encouraging me to continue and for encouraging me to be the better version of myself every single day.
Year one has been one of the most challenging, fun and successful years of my life. I am ready and able for year two and what it has in store for me. In a few weeks I am launching my Intuitive workshops where I will be teaching you how to connect with energy, with your intuition, with spirit and more. I am also in the middle of writing my first book and I have so many more exciting things on the horizon that I cannot wait to share with you.
Sending love and light to you,
