Rebecca Skeele Play BIG
I remember the moment like it was yesterday - a lightening bolt of energy flashed through my body. Or maybe it was the answer to an unspoken prayer that I finally was able to articulate.
It went like this… then when I thought about the alternatives - stay small and get more clients or have more people take my classes - the inner answer was…
NO… It’s time to take the leap girlfriend! Not Negotiable!!!
That moment, four years ago, was a watershed moment. Everything before became ‘who I used to be and what I used to do’. What lay ahead…was the GREAT UNKNOWN.
Not only was it the great unknown but I didn’t realize in that moment how much I had to learn. In 2011 I was not tech savvy. The extent of my virtual presence was a brochure website, a small list where I posted my blog… I didn’t have a Facebook account; I didn’t know what an auto-responder was nor did I know how to make an offer, how to launch an online program, how to grow my list… I was in that place of ‘deer in the headlights’ experience when someone asked me, “So Rebecca, What do you do?”
What I did was… I published a book — a course that had taught for many years and about 20 years of experience working with clients at a very deep level of spiritual awakening. Ok nice. But, I had no idea how to stand out on a virtual stage and get any kind of attention.
This has been one of my biggest learnings - as important if not more important than all the other on-line business courses and strategies. I have learned to stand in my uniqueness, in the power of who I am. I have learned to trust the timing of when someone is ready for the work I do and when they are not. I no longer chase after the “I have to be all things to all people” - which is a bright shiny object; or the limiting game of “If you are not signing up for my course then that means what I do is not valuable”.
And I listen when my inner voice says, “ATTENTION: Message from your Guidance…time to unplug and do nothing.”
Every mastermind and on-line business course that I have taken from wonderful business mentors I have adapted to my three bottom lines…
- Business Growth: my financial growth, my on-line reach and my cash flow revenue streams are all very important for my viable and sustainable business. But as a spirtiually-focused entrepreneur I also track:
- My personal Awakening as a Spiritual Being
- My personal Timeline of Self Fulfillment
Because for me, my bottom line business growth must also feed my continued growth as a spiritual being and fulfill what I am here to do this lifetime.
So, I want you to know, fellow travelers on the path of business ownership as conscious awake purpose-preneurs, who are following a sacred calling, a vision in your heart, and want to serve in a bigger way…how to avoid some pitfalls along the way. Here at the end of one year and beginning of the next it is normal to look back over the year with an eye on the future - to evaluate where you are in your life and your business…and to observe what is dawning on the horizon.
In this series of video blogs I want to share some of my learnings - and some of them are not very pretty - so you can begin your year with more self-confidence, feel more on purpose and know how to stay true to you.
When you are wanting to step out and play a bigger game in your life and/or your business I have found that knowing who you want to play with and what kind of playing field you want to create for this new BIG STEP is very important.
If those kinds of questions are important for you then I invite you to check out what fun is being planned the first two months of 2016…
