{Soulpreneur Sunday} Simplify Your Offers

“Angella, you’ve managed to take all of the joy out of your business.” This is what my kick-ass project manager told me. She reminds me of this often. Why? Because I can over-complicate the hell out of things. I’m a visionary. If you are a visionary, then you can relate. You get inspired ideas and it’s usually more exciting to create those ideas rather than the things like sales and marketing in your business. And maybe you are even like me and you love the process of creating. You get really creative. You also have a tendency to want to be accessible to various levels of clients and customers. This can create the “I’ve got something for everyone” syndrome. But before you are done creating the one thing, you get the inspiration for the next thing. So you create and create. But you never finish. The ideas never get to the point of getting marketed; they rarely, if at all, make you money. Thus the cycle of our creation genius starts and continues. Then you wonder why you are getting burned out and feeling frazzled. I see this happen all of the time with my clients and other soulpreneurs. I can fall into this trap too, which is why I gladly welcome the reminder from my project manager to keep things simple and fun. If you want to create a more solid financial foundation for your business then keep your focus to one, maybe two offers, for 30-90 days....
{Soulpreneur Sunday} The Introvert Lie

{Soulpreneur Sunday} The Introvert Lie

I’ve told myself probably thousands of times the things I couldn’t do because I was shy and introvert. I used it as an excuse. I let it hold me back. I let is squash my confidence and my voice. I let it determine the power of my impact in the world. Then I learned what an introvert really is. And it’s not what I thought. Then I couldn’t use it as an excuse anymore. It really comes down to energy management. Some people get energized by being around other people. I’m not one of those people and if you can relate with me then you understand how going to a multi-day event can be incredibly draining. Then if you are an empath, crowds of people are especially challenging if you don’t manage your energy. What if you used being an introvert as one of your greatest assets, instead of something to hold you back?...
{Soulpreneur Sunday} Is Soul Purpose Overrated?

{Soulpreneur Sunday} Is Soul Purpose Overrated?

I hear a lot of people talk about how they “can’t” do their business, make more money, be happier, etc. until they know what their soul purpose is. I used to be one of those people. There are even systems and programs that will tell you what you what your purpose is. As convenient as this sounds, how can anyone tell YOU what your purpose is? Some experts even tell you that you won’t make money until you know what your purpose is. (I used to believe this too.) Here’s a take on your soul purpose that will likely give you a lot more space to CHOOSE instead of pressure to get it perfect. I had a “Soul Purpose” expert give mini Soul Purpose readings at my recent Ignite event because I know the power of this person’s work and how it highlighted some things for my own life that has been so beneficial. Sounds a little opposite from what I just shared right? And it was then that I realized something BIG. It wasn’t a Soul Purpose reading, it was a “Superpower” reading. Sometimes it is helpful to have someone else mirror back to us what they see in us. We often get soooo close to our own purpose and next step that we can’t see it. We can feel it. We want it. But the clarity eludes us. Sometimes it’s that validation we get from someone who has our best interest at heart and we can see ourselves more clearly. The big question I want you to think about is how can anyone tell YOU what your...

{Soulpreneur Sunday} Redwoods and an expensive energy leak

What could happen if we linked our roots like the Redwoods? Any energy leak in our life turns into a profit leak in our business at some point. What if the solution to fixing the leaks is to receive more support from the right people? This, along with many other insights came about from my time in gorgeous California in the Redwood National Park last month when I took a 3-generation road trip. My sister and I took my mom and grandma to the Redwoods. It was remarkable to hear stories from the past of my grandma taking a stand for herself in a time where women couldn’t vote and were viewed as less-than-equal. I don’t think she realized the path she was setting for her daughters, granddaughters and great-granddaughters. I am deeply grateful. Seeing the redwoods made me realize how strong we can be when we stick together. Not sticking together through obligation or because we “should,” but from total choice and expansiveness. The redwoods actually have a very shallow root system and the only way these 200-300 foot trees can stay standing is by linking their root structure with nearby trees. Standing among these majestic trees made me realize how connected we all can be with each other but in order to be supported, we have to allow it. This was a remarkable realization for me, especially considering an experience I recently had that had me take a look at competition vs collaboration. Consider what kind of support system you and your business require to grow the way you desire. What could happen in your business with...
