There are excellent reasons for working together with someone who adds value and expertise to a shared project.

In case you were looking for ONE MORE THING TO DO (smile).... here is something to consider about your email communications.
Email lists are how you actively reach out to connect with anyone who is interested in what you teach, share, sell, or offer - obvious, right?
As your work grows and diversifies, there are solid reasons for having more than one email list in order to stay connected with people and their needs.
Check out why creating separate email lists is advantageous as you grow your audience - and why it will reduce your unsubscribes because you are staying focused on what your audience needs.
Does it appear that "everyone else" is making more money, increasing their email list subscribers, hitting the highest numbers, and succeeding easily right now?
The Comparison Game is rampant these days, and yet there are mindful ways to stop it in its tracks.
It is important to remain present and powerful in what YOU are doing - and to understand that all that glitters is not gold out there.
I'll share with you ways to validate what you are doing and turn your attention away from what others are experiencing.

It wasn’t very long ago -- sitting here at this exact same desk -- that instead of feeling excited, passionate, and flooded with opportunity like I am nowadays...
...I felt stuck. Overwhelmed. Unsure of what to do next.
And I don’t say that just to sound dramatic or to win sympathy. There are plenty out there who had it far worse than I did, but that’s really how I felt. Like there was something more for me, yet it remained always outside my reach.
It seems many successful entrepreneurs seem to experience something similar prior to their “big break”.
For me there was no shortage of ideas to pursue, but a shortage of clarity on knowing how to proceed in order to create an online business like I enjoy today.
“Clear as mud” I think the saying is.
So what changed everything for me?

Many of us as healers, spiritual guides, and experts are doing business in new ways as part of the global shift. As we follow our dreams and create our unique path as we go, often times being financially supported becomes up as one of the main priorities on our minds. Will the right clients show up? How do I promote my work without giving it all away? What do I have to do to receive financial abundance?
Your work is bigger than just you, so I have created an online course to support the energy of abundance as you grow your business and help more people. Mastering Abundance In Your Spiritual Business is for anyone who wants to establish their offerings with confidence and get results - is that you?

We'll talk about the 3 types of leads that you will encounter as you share your business + books with a growing audience.

What is the big secret to sales?
I know that question alone can be uncomfortable, especially for those of us who don't want to be 'sales-y' or feel like we have to manipulate people with the right words in order to get them to buy something from us (YUCK!).
More importantly, how can you generate trust with people?
Your ability to be authentic and real is truly your greatest sales strategy.
