When I started my business in 2008, I had just completed my first coach training and I had this awesome idea to combine Massage Therapy & coaching to help people manage the physical and mental aspects of stress. I had a vision of changing my clients lives through helping them live more connected.
My then-accountant said, ‘nobody knows what coaching is so why would you sell it.’
While fear made me temporarily heed his advice, my heart continued to speak louder and louder until I finally owned my role as a BodyMind Coach. My clients LOVED the work and got amazing results. As a result, my business thrived (and I moved on to another accountant too!).
Then about 5 years ago, I had this vision…
I saw BodyMind Coaching going world wide. I saw massage therapists, bodyworkers and holistic practitioners incorporating coaching into their hands on work and helping their clients acheive even better results because they were now able to address the Body-Mind as one unit (which, if you think about it, is rare in our current society).
I’ve had goals and ideas before, but there was something about THIS vision that made my heart sing. Of course, fear quickly responded by saying, ‘who am I to teach this?’, ‘why would anyone want this?’ and ‘you’re crazy.’, ‘don’t be selfish’.
I let fear take over and my vision stayed hidden for years.
I have spent the past few years supporting fellow bodyworkers in upleveling their businesses because our industry is filled with amazing heart-centered practitioners who are overworked, exhausted and on the brink of burnout.
Now I LOVE talking business. But what I started to notice what lights me up most is teaching the importance of communication in your business. At the end of the day, marketing is a conversation. Rebooking is a conversation. Social Media is a conversation.
Even more important- Inspiring your clients to take action to break through stress and pain is a conversation…. a coaching conversation! .
If you want your clients to get long-term results, coaching is key.
If you want your business to thrive without having to overwork yourself, coaching is key.
Knowing how to coach IS the key to a successful practice.
After years of letting my fear run the show, I finally decided it was time and this February, I launched my first BodyMind Coaching Program and 20 INCREDIBLE therapists from across the country came aboard to radically transform their business and life.
Last week, I hosted this amazing group in Columbus for our first workshop and it was the best 4 days of my life.
One therapist even said that she ‘signed up to improve her business and now her whole life has transformed’.
Your Vision is How You Serve The World
Your vision exists within you for a reason. Following it is not selfish. In fact, following your vision is the best way to serve others.
I have been blessed with 20 people who are my 20 reasons why I follow my vision. I know that soon, there will be 100 reasons, 1,000 reasons even 100,000 reasons.
Each day, you make a choice. You either choose to follow your vision and make your dreams your reality or you choose to believe your fears and limiting beliefs and stay where you are.
Which will you choose?
To Your Success,
