Making a HEART based DECISION

We all go through different seasons in our lives.  Some seasons call for changes, and some times we just coast on a wave.  I know when I have debated a change in my career or a relationship, I have had to really soul search.  I wanted to share a couple tricks I have learned along the way to help me decide if Im in my head or my heart.

I got the best advise right before I was getting ready to start my own business as a stylist, I was of course very nervous about my new venture and was looking for a higher perspective.  I was so nervous about investing in myself and my future and I was really looking for some words of wisdom to keep me from backing out and keep me moving forward.

Of course I went to the holy grail of information YouTube University and went through several videos on how you know for sure you should start your own business.  I came across a video that described a excersize to help decide if it was a INTUITIVE choice...

Take your new venture and think about the possibilities, how do you feel? 

Take your current situation that your considering shifting away from, how do you feel?

She went on to share that based on your feelings you can come up with a intuitive decision.  If you feel RESTRICTION that means its not the best choice for you.  If you feel EXPANSION it's whats on your heart.

It's a fine line not to confuse being anxious or scared to make a big choice with it not being your next big move.  Change is not for the faint hearted no matter how pumped you are for your new horizons.  I make the choice based on if I want to stay the same.  I gravitate towards no.  I want to learn and grow and expand my life and my skills.

When I started the salon, I went through so many emotions. There were days I was so excited and there were days that I was so scared.  Honestly it was all meant to be, every choice I made was from the heart.  It was to EXPAND my life and my horizons, and guess what?  It all worked out, and then some.

I know it can be scary to make a heart based decision, but it is life altering.  Its really is the highest form of putting yourself on the top of the list. When we run our businesses from that place, we can GIVE from the most beautiful space.

Next week I will be sharing my heart based decision on my transition over to the Coaching Industry.  I will be sharing some intimate details of how I made the choice, and what signs came up for me.  If you ever have questions about the Coaching Industry please don't hesitate to ask me, its a passion for me to share.  Have a intuitive week babes...

Creating Space For Yourself On Social Media

This last year has been such a whirl wind.  For many of you following my story know me and my family went through a huge move this summer. I was running my own business in my salon suite and learning the next steps for my online coaching career. I had also just gave birth to my second baby. Lets just say lots going on.

I knew Coaching came into my life for a purpose I just didn't know how big of a role that it was going to play in my future. I had lots of doubts about the industry which most people do. So I took several weeks to really research the Industry and see if it was worth my most precious asset, my time.

I had several life conflicts when I was in the salon, most of the inner conflicts I was having involved growing my business further and at what expense it would cost my family.  My husbands career is very demanding, so my job has to be flexible, and hairstylists hours are not your traditional 9-5.

Me and Troy also knew we wanted more children so time was a big issue. These problems can all be solved by being creative which we always made things work. The point is I had problems I needed solved. Being out of TIME, wanting to be home with my children, and still having a INTENSE desire to be in BUSINESS.

I am incredibly entrepreneurial and building Brandi Inc. has been on my mind since I was a little girl. Its in my blood.  When I seen the opportunity in the online space I spent more time researching if their was a need in the market for my vision.  There are other women just like me who see this, and I want to work with them.

I had to do lots of soul searching the first year I was creating and crafting what I had to offer as a coach, and Im not your average coach. I absolutly aligned myself with products that helped in my physical transformation but that is a small piece of the puzzle and I hope to align myself with other big picture thinkers.

Being a big picture thinker is a gift that I nurture in myself, I know it is rare and I work hard to protect it.  I hold strong beliefs in myself and the people I work closely with, and I expect the same from them. There is no room for people in your life who plant seeds of doubt,  you have to have a strong connection to who you are and what you have to offer as a person.

Coaching is a incredible industry and its my mission to share that with women who are like me.  They have some holes in their life that this opportunity could fill. Its not for everyone, you must have a strong vision and a deep belief in yourself.  This has potential to open doors that you have seen for yourself but you didn't know how exactly to get there.

I run monthly Coaching workshops to help people get started in sharing their story.  You can find more information about my monthly groups on my business page on Facebook and/or send me a message for a application to see if this is for you.
