    Ep #34: How People Pleasing Blocks Business Growth

    Ep #34: How People Pleasing Blocks Business Growth

    Do you find yourself going out of your way to please others (often at the expense of your own needs or desires)?

    Do you struggle to set boundaries with your clients? They book an hour with you, but before you know it two hours have passed?

    Do you take on the full workload for your family (cooking, cleaning, errands, kids) without asking for help?

    I get it. It's so easy to fall into the trap of people pleasing. We want to make others happy. It's something we've been taught from a young age and it's a tricky pattern to break. But it's crucial that we begin to set boundaries, especially if we want to take our businesses to the next level.

    That's why this week on She Grows we're talking about the four ways people pleasing can stunt the growth of your business.

    I share my own personal experiences with people pleasing and how it impacted my business. We also talk about how to identify the patterns of people pleasing, why we often struggle with setting boundaries for ourselves, and I offer some practical suggestions to stop this pattern so your business can soar.

    Are you a spiritual entrepreneur who wants a stronger connection to your spirit guides?

    Or maybe you're not quite sure what a spirit guide is, or how to activate that connection?

I also share practical ways for you to implement these steps, along with a few barriers to watch out for that might trip you up along the way.

    Ep #30: The Research-Supported Way to Trust Your Intuition with Heather Alice Shea

    Ep #30: The Research-Supported Way to Trust Your Intuition with Heather Alice Shea

    As a soul-guided entrepreneur, you know your intuitive hits provide powerful guidance, but part of your logical brain would also like to see proof that your intuition is "real."

    You wish there was scientific evidence to support what you already know: intuition isn't just a hopeful wish or a hypothesis.

    Intuitive life trainer and business development mentor, Heather Alice Shea has done the research to provide that evidence and is here to share it with us today.

    In this episode of She Grows, Heather bust the myths surrounding our intuition and explains how to use research-based intuition methodologies to integrate intuition in your life and business.

    Heather shares the research findings that support the idea that intuition does, in fact, exist and is something we can all access. She explains that our neurological, linear brains like to analyze and make sense of things, but that's only half of who we are.

    We explore the research proving that our intuition is an organ within us and that there is a hardwired biological process for how we receive our intuitive hits and then process them in our body and mind. Heather shares advice for people who struggle to trust their intuitive voice and gives us daily practices to help build a deeper trust to our voice of intuition.


    Heather is an Intuitive Life Trainer and Business Development Mentor who certifies emerging coaches into purposeful and prosperous coaching practices thatthrive. She is the founder and CEO of Atmana Coaching Academy, the world’s first research supported Intuitive Life Coach Certification and Business Development Company that formally integrates intuition into the coaching process. She is the creator of theAtmana Method,™ and the Intuitive Development Pathway,™ and the Intuitive Interpretation Matrix™ frameworks that concretize the intuitive process and provide practical instruction on using intuition for effective personal and professional growth.
