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?

Whether you are looking for clients or readers, you need to know about the sales process that drives people to say YES to you.
We'll talk about the 3 types of leads that you will encounter as you share your business + books with a growing audience.
Plus, I'll share how to be aware of when others are trying to sell to you so you can determine - objectively - what an effective sales strategy experience is (hello, someone relatable and honest) and what is not (yikes, those dang solicitors in the mall!).

One of the hardest aspects of writing a book and putting yourself out there is being on the receiving end of bad reviews. It can rock you or feel like a stab to the heart - but it is part of our world as authors and creators so we have to get stronger with these opinions and the feedback.
Every week, influential indie author Mark Dawson shares excellent advice for authors and writers looking to grow their career.
In this week's Self Publishing Formula podcast, I had the pleasure of speaking with James, Mark's cohost, about 5 types of bad reviews and what to do about them, including:
- Differentiating between a bad opinion and someone who has valuable feedback
- The five different types of negative reviews
- Tips for dealing with each type of review
- Understanding your rights as an author and when to contest a review
- The importance of self-management when dealing with bad reviews
- Relying on the author community and friends we trust for objective opinions
How do you know if you should set up a contract with someone?
If any of these 3 elements are involved in your work project, it would be advisable to have a simple contract in place to help - and protect - each person.
I make it easy for you to determine if it is a good idea in this new Biz Quiz video in the free library.
Save yourself from unnecessary stress or setbacks by listening to the tips I have for you in this podcast!
I have learned many things the hard way, and sometimes on the longer path, so I hope this show gives you valuable information you can use for your author career and entrepreneurial spirit.
I cover 7 areas in this episode, including:
- Time commitments
- Investing money
- Figuring it out all by yourself
- Remaining flexible
- The importance of experimentation
The mental game of writing can be easier when you are focused and in flow - but we experience those periods of trying to force it, too.
I have guidance to offer you that has worked for me after completing 12 books. Hopefully it assists in changing around how you approach the pressure of "forced writing" so you can transition to "focused writing" that has flow.
Inspiring, real world stories every week about clients, readers, business and books to support building your dream career.

Allow other people's success to inspire you to see what is possible these days. Just because it happened to them does not mean it won't happen to you.

The Comparison Game can take you down the wrong tracks if you're not aware of what's going on. Need help moving through that?
More about this very topic on this week's podcast, Why Is Everyone Else Doing Better Than Me?
Validation may be an obvious need at times, but why would you be vulnerable in your business? Because times are changing, people have different expectations (often unconscious), and there are key reasons for allowing people to see - and feel - the real you.
We'll discuss how validation and vulnerability are linked together and can be unconscious drivers of what you're doing. You can be vulnerable in the wrong ways, unfortunately, so listen as I guide you with easy tips for harnessing your heart in your professional endeavors.
The results can be extraordinary and you'll feel new levels of motivation for your work in the world.
What type of content creator are you?
We are all surrounded by way too much information these days, for better or for worse, and we can lose track of where "ideas" come from. Did it come from you or someone else? Was it an idea you saw 'out there' or did you get inspiration from it within?
The answer is probably somewhere in the middle.
But to stay 'above board', ensure you are creating content from your own experience and not simply duplicating what someone else has already done.
We need more genuine voices contributing to the ongoing conversations. People pick up on what is true and real, and will eventually see through false copies or empty words.
Ultimately, we need your unique insights to help move collective knowledge forward. When we each contribute what we've learned, we all continue to grow exponentially.
