Last year, I was catching up with one of my former clients, Sylvia over brunch. Yes, mimosas and all. (Ah, I remember those. #Notforanother6Months )
She was recounting all the amazing things that happened since we worked together. And I was eating it up!
She’d landed her dream job.
She’d got a $12,000 raise.
She was now being considered for another leadership role.
She’d met someone...you know...special.
There were sooooo many cheers coming from our table as I celebrated each and every one of her enormous victories. I was so freaking proud of all she had overcome, created, and manifested into her reality.
All from just one month intensive with me.
I feel so honored to do this work. To be able to tap people into their possibilities, beyond what even they may believe.
Then, she said something that took my breath away.
At that time, I had a prospective client, who was on the fence about working with me. I put her in touch with Syl to share a bit about her...
In case you needed to hear this today…
You are NOT broken.
This was one of the most profound, transformational breakthroughs I had. And when it sunk into my soul back in 2016, it stuck...for good.
It is the BELIEF that you are broken, or even could be broken that is 100% plagiarized.
Just because you’re growing.
Just because you’re choosing to create a new reality doesn’t mean that the old one was broken.
You simply outgrew it.
Like a pair of clothes. It doesn’t mean that they were broken or had holes in them.
They just don’t fit anymore.
And that’s okay.
Just like your beliefs - the ones you are consciously and currently creating NOW.
Those OLD beliefs don’t fit the new version of you that you are creating.
Your energy, your vibe, your persona, your sovereignty expanded into a new dimension.
Thank those beliefs (those old clothes) for serving you, for being with you thus far.
When I first started Crown Yourself, I didn’t start out coaching entrepreneurs to increase their profits by 150% in the next 12 months...that came over time.
Back in 2016, I just wanted to help people.
And, like Liam Neeson, I had a certain set of skills that could do it - NLP, Time Line Therapy, hypnosis, and Pilates parasympathetic breathing.
I had ONE offer back then:
The Gold Package.
It is like a wham-bam-thank-you-ma’am of 8 hours that my clients said literally transformed their lives.
But, in 2018 after becoming a Certified High-Performance Coach™ I integrated my other skillsets into new, fresh shiny packages that allowed for me to work longer with the clients that I so adore.
That’s the beauty of owning your own business - you can evolve.
That’s also the beauty of being human....
In honor of being nominated for “Best of the Best” for the Erin Strayer show, I was thinking of what I could do that would totally celebrate with you!
Like I want to give you the greatest gift, more than any other sugar daddy on Instagram has ever offered me ;) (Oh yeah, even while pregnant that stuff still happens.)
We had some other plans in the pipeline - but I was just...struggling...to...get...started.
Whenever that happens, I know there is a massive alignment check.
Either it’s the offer.
Or the product.
I explore all avenues.
On my Queen Team meeting this week with our Members’ Manager, Marie, it hit me.
It was the offer and the product.
What I had planned on putting out this week for you, just didn’t ring Christmas cheer - especially after the year we’ve all had.
So I checked in, prayed, asked for guidance and this came to me in the shower this morning…
Go for the Gold.
Suddenly I knew exactly...
Wanna know the funny thing about showing up as your raw, real, most authentic self?
And it even gets nominated!
This week we found out we’ve been nominated for the Best of the Best of the Erin Strayer Show, as my episode was one of the TOP DOWNLOADED EPISODES...in 3 years of the show!
I remember when I closed the deal to be on this show...fresh from my shower and in my bathrobe.
I’ll admit, I thought I would have enough time to get dressed for my first meeting with this show producer. She was conducting a pre-interview to see if I’d be a good fit for her show, which was syndicated on a ton of platforms.
This really felt like the big time back in 2019 for me.
I knew I needed a relaxing bath before my day, because (if you haven’t tried it, it’s a really fulfilling way to start out your day like a Queen.)
And I wasn’t willing to compromise that. Why would you? #QueenStatus
The meeting was set for 6:45...
Two years ago, I did an interview on the Erin Strayer Show. I do a lot of interviews these days, at least 2-3 a week for different shows, summits, speaking gigs, so sometimes, it can feel like a blur when you’re constantly in the go-go-go of the grind.
But I never forgot about Erin. (I’ll tell you why tomorrow. )
Turns out...now I find out that in 3 years of her show, my episode has become one of her MOST WATCHED EPISODES EVER!!!
And now, we’re nominated for the “Best of the Best” Awards!
THIS is the beauty of living + running your empire with vision.
You never know where one interview 2 years ago will take you.
You never know when a person you met 2 months ago will become a client.
You never know when those deposits you have put in, day in and day, out to your business will pay off.
One of the things I see that trips up entrepreneurs, especially in the start-up stages in the beginning is shortsightedness.
Just because you’re not bringing...
Could you imagine having a boss who lets you slide?
Didn’t make a sale this week?
BOSS: “Eh...it’s okay, you did your best. I’m sure you’ll do better next week.”
Didn’t handle that customer issue? Didn’t close that BIG sale?
BOSS: “You know what, we can always get more customers. That’s okay.”
Didn’t complete or, heck, even start that project that’s you KNOW you need to do?
BOSS: “You know what...it’s not THAT important. You can always get to it next week. Here’s a bottle of wine. Take the weekend off. You tried hard.”
Your BOSS would be fired by THEIR boss...who would then fire you.
Yet, when we get into working for ourselves, it’s easy for us to be the slacking “cool” boss that lets you slide on your commitments to yourself.
One of the greatest questions I ask my clients is this:
“Would the Future You - the one who has the...
It was two weeks ago, I was sitting at the kitchen table of our AirBnB, pulling document after document of proof of my income to show to the rental company for our new place. I even needed a letter from my accountant stating the growth of my company.
FYI, Australia doesn’t mess around when it comes to proving you can pay your bills.
As I was reviewing my numbers, it was then that it hit me…
“Holy shit...I did it!”
I leaped up from my chair and ran into Spike. “I did it!”
We doubled our income this year.
We doubled our profit this year.
And then, we doubled our profit again. (Found that one out from my accountant’s lovely letter. Thanks, Jerra!)
We’re on track for a 150% growth in 2020.
This is the number I screamed from the top of my lungs at Tony Robbins’ Business Mastery way back in January.
I felt this growth in my BONES.
After we settled into our new place (yes, we got the apartment...woot-woot!), I started...
One of the biggest obstacles that I’ve seen to a successful client’s greatness is their comfort level.
Especially when you’ve achieved a lot, especially when you’ve had several significant wins under your belt, especially when you’ve been able to grow, scale, accomplish goals of impressive heights - there is a height, an altitude that is comfortable.
We wanted not to do that. Right, Icarus?
So we coast at an altitude that suits us - nice bottles of wine, nice home, nice life - no real NEED for change.
Except that it’s stirring in your soul begging to be unleashed.
Except for every day you’re going through the motions, you feel like a part of you slightly died or worse, dimmed.
Except that your purpose, that THING, that dream, that unreasonable, seemingly impossible thing that you don’t currently know how to do is tugging at your heart like a toddler pulling your hand “Faster, mommy, faster,”...
Can you believe we are in DECEMBER? What? What time is it? What day is it? The fact that we are still here now in Australia, and have been since March, still dazzles me.
This year has been, for many, an emotional rollercoaster. So I just wanted to check-in.
How’s your energy these days?
Your emotions are a powerful guidance tool to gauge your energy.
Feeling low? Rundown?
You may be in a state of apathy or guilt or grief. (And no one would blame you.)
Feeling anxious? Scared? Uncertain of where the next dollar’s going to come from?
You may be feeling emotions of anger or fear. Or, hell, maybe a little pride even, like you SHOULD be farther along right now.
It’s easy for our emotions to start spinning stories in our heads that cause us to lose track of the present moment.
I grew up not knowing a lot about emotions. They were just labeled as “bad.” Or I was...
