    It’s never too soon to dive into your wellness business with Stefanie Seher

    It’s never too soon to dive into your wellness business with Stefanie Seher

    On today's podcast episode I am interviewing a brilliant teacher and a beautiful person, Stefanie Seher. Stephanie is from Germany. We met in an online group, which was centered around an abundance mindset program.
    We grew to have a wonderful relationship. Eventually Stefanie became a client of mine.
    One of the things I love about her was that she didn't wait to dive into the business side of her work. Stefanie new it was her time and that she didn't need to wait until she taught yoga for 10 years or been a practitioner for 20 years before she saw results in her business. 
    Come hear Stefanie's story on the latest episode.

    The important pricing conversations you’re not having, with Jacquette Timmons

    The important pricing conversations you’re not having, with Jacquette Timmons

    On today's podcast episode,  I am thrilled to have  Jacquette Timmons, financial behaviorist, an author, a speaker, and a podcaster, as my guest 


    I had the pleasure of attending one of Jacquette's pricing workshops in 2020, and let me tell you, she left quite an impression.

    I have attended many money seminars over the years and Jacquette's was the only one who asked questions that were not only appropriate, but SO disruptive in a good way. Seriously, they made me 

    I knew I had to have Jacquette on the podcast to deliver her deep financial wisdom with you. We laugh a lot and go into a strong, nuanced conversation about money quickly, covering so many key points that wellness professionals need to hear but are often ignored by money experts.

    Not everyone is coachable

    Not everyone is coachable

    On today's podcast episode, where we're diving into a question that might sound obvious, but is actually very nuanced and layered.

    This is a question that you can ask of your clients, but it's also a really important checking point for you to ask yourself. 

    The question of, is this person coachable, or to turn the mirror towards yourself? Am I coachable? 

    You might initially think, of course isn't everybody coachable?

    Well, the answer is no. 

    ​​The reasons why might surprise you as we get into them. I'm hoping this episode allows you to get even more discerning with your screening process when you're evaluating, whether someone is the right type of client for you, or you're the right type of person to serve them.

    ​​It's also crucial that you check in with yourself on this topic because many people in the yoga and wellness industries go gangbusters and hire coach after coach or sign up for program after program, and then feel frustrated when they don't get the results that they want. 

    ​​And to that, I say the only common denominator in that situation is you. So let's dive in and conquer what is a really valuable topic today.

    Do you have a spending problem?

    Do you have a spending problem?

    On the podcast today  we are diving into a really important question for you as a wellness professional, whether you're a yoga teacher or a personal trainer or a Reiki master does not matter. This question is relevant for you.
    The question is, do you have a spending issue?
    I'm not talking about the kind of spending issue where it's feast or famine or the type of spending issue where you go into debt.
    Today's issue is more of an issue around personal identity.  This comes up a lot for wellness professionals, especially when it comes to getting new certificates. That was the subject of the very first episode of this podcast. So that's not a new topic. I've spoken about it countless times, but today we're looking at it from the angle of spending. Let's dive in.

    Truth Time: Are you "meditating" on it or just plain procrastinating?

    Truth Time: Are you "meditating" on it or just plain procrastinating?

    How many times have you said the words, "let me meditate on it?" On today's podcast episode I am calling out the pervasive advice spiritual seekers not only give to others but also take themselves.  I know the intention behind this advice is good. The advice givers want to support you in making a thoughtful choice, not acting impulsively, etc. But we're going to talk today about why this is actually becoming problematic, especially amongst wellness professionals and spiritual professionals. 
     
    Are you "meditating" on things or just plain procrastinating?

    what big thing are you unwilling to do?

    what big thing are you unwilling to do?

    On this weeks episode of Ancient Wisdom for the Modern Wellness professional, we're examining the topic of the “thing” you’ve been unwilling to do in your business? I coach many wellness professionals, and ALL OF THEM have blocks around something major, such as being visible on social media, selling, owning their worth, and charging appropriate prices. 

    Often, those things feel big, scary, and impossible to tackle. These aren’t the big things I’m talking about. With the right support,with the right coach, with the right team, you can manage that stuff seamlessly.

    I'm here to talk about doing the thing that feels impossible. That feels like you might actually die in the process. The reason for that is something deeper. It's something deeper than just the money, the sales call, or the new branding. 

    You're probably expecting me, a deeply intuitive person who is very connected to my feelings and emotions in any situation, to tell you that when you feel yourself encountering that resistance around that huge thing, you're unwilling to do that you should acknowledge your discomfort and then avoid doing that thing. 

    That's not what I'm here to say, and I speak from recent experience. 

    So I want you to think of the thing that is so big, so intense, and so scary that you would judge yourself harshly for doing this thing. 

    I'm also here to ask you, what's there for you on the other side of this judgment
