Magic Making Business Circle
There are days when I want to stop doing this.
There are days when I think about people who get a paycheck delivered to them monthly and put it in the bank and know what to expect.
There are days when I feel defeated, deflated and scared.
Creatives may not say these things out loud, but we feel it.
The vulnerability and risk we are inside of every day (being your business leaves little space for days 'off' like others know it) often becomes exhausting.
We go through phases of huge ups and downs.
My work rewards me and fills me and continues to call out to me over and over in new ways.
And I'm still scared and question it.
Creating something out of nothing is magic. It is a magic that is wrapped up inside of time and place and learning and edges and failure and scarcity and abundance and freedom and love.
creatives doubt what they are making.
creatives have days when they feel like nothing makes sense.
creatives want to quit. At some point. often on repeat.
We don't. We keep going. We hear the voices, we feel the failures and we keep creating.
We find our currency. Adoration. Freedom. Abundance. Joy. Pleasure. Nurturing. (Fill in the blank.)
Our currency becomes our drive becomes our passion becomes our need becomes our yesyesyesyes.
I am trained as an actor and a health coach. I have fancy pieces of paper speaking to the time spent studying and practicing both.
When I was a child I was fascinated by plants. I remember science experiments growing plants in the dark.
I dream of living on a farm. Goats. Pigs. Gardens overflowing with tomatoes.
Sometimes I think about opening a bar that makes homemade soups and breads and has a wall of tequilas in fancy bottles with vintage glasses decorating the space. And wine. Lots of wine.
I want to have a store filled with plants and vintage collections and art and people gathering and being in community. I imagine my daughter running it so I can continue to travel and live location independent.
Building a business with my love, my partner in life, gives me goosebumps of excitement and possibility to create something that could allow us to create even more freedom together.
My dream now, that I'm so close to believing, includes real estate and rentals and making homes.
Nothing I do makes sense and it is all perfect. Because it is desire led.
I release dreams all the time.
I manifest dreams all the time.
I am scared all the time.
Creatives have lists like Santas filled with ideas and dreams.
creatives are often terrified of new dreams.
creatives who succeed do so because they are inside of movement.
They choose to live in the magic. Even when the magic feels distant. Because the faith in the dream is faith in themselves and bringing beauty and joy and passion into the world.
This work, this life is my blessing. It is my success.
Success to me is being able to work from anywhere in the world that has internet.
Success is living and working in clothes that feel like me, leggings and leg warmers and feet in the earth holding my coffee mug.
Success is never running out of money to feed my family, and the way the sun is spilling out over my tattooed arms while I type these words from my office listening to the kids outside playing in the yard.
Success is every email from one of you, giving me back words and gratitude and fueling me with your hearts so that I can let the fears move through me, thank you, and write the next story. Lead the next circle. Offer my transparency as an offering of hope or change or truth or connection or sameness.
Success is the kiss from each of our kids as they cuddle down into bed at night.
Success is the way I have learned how to love him, take care of him, provide for him and our kids. (And learning how to receive from him.)
Success is this business that allows me this life of ease mixed with fear mixed with risks mixed with failures mixed with all the things promising me that it is all OK.
Success is when you tell me everything has changed. And my tears flow. And in that moment I can feel no fear. Only love. Love. Love.
I want you to look at what success is to you. To find your definition. To write it on sticky notes. To use it as your gratitude.
I believe with every bit of my soul that circles of women are the most healing energy available.
The vibration that we send out when we come together radiates and soothes and lifts and supports and is the rawest form of compassion and gathering of spirit I know of.
I began circling women when Lucas was born, 9 years ago, inside of my work and I have been drawing female energy together since I was young. I crave the cycle of being with only myself and that of the circles.
As a highly sensitive building a business meant looking at marketing and sales and branding and social media in a way that I wasn't being taught. I watched other sensitive ones completely knocked down by the approaches and teachings that were out there.
I have a love affair with businesses and all the components inside of it. My superpower is taking classic sales techniques and flipping them into empathic, nurturing, feeling, giving abundance.
My dream from the start was to have a thriving, small business. To do small in amazing ways. To reach as many women as I can hold space for and to allow those women to then go and gift others with their magic. Movement like water. Flowing from idea to idea, teaching to teaching, heart to heart.
I'd rather read a business book than a novel and when I do I am converting the language and the ideas into magic making.
And still. I am afraid. I worry about being a fraud. Of not knowing enough. I question my intelligence. I cry during launches.
As I am crying I am remembering you. Why I do this. Why it matters. Why I question everything and then move through it to the other side because of you.
The woman who steps into circle with a dream. The woman who steps into circle with so many ideas she feels overwhelmed. The woman who is creating magic and wants to infuse it all around her. The woman who is lost in her life and knows there is something more. The woman who can't stop thinking about a life working for herself rather than in an office. The woman that burns with passion. The woman who craves freedom. The woman that falls to her knees in prayer when it all is falling apart. The woman that desires other women as friends, mentors, guides. The woman that knows this life holds more gifts than she has yet to unwrap.
My invitation to you is to step inside a circle of women who are creating the businesses of their dreams or are dreaming of the businesses that will one day light them up, turn them on, create their freedom.
My invitation to you is to believe in your soulwork. In your dharma. In your joy.
My invitation to you is to become the magic maker who allows failure to fuel them, who tries, who doesn't give up. Who fights for what they know they were put here to do.
My invitation to you is to join our circle and find your magic. Your business. Your heart centered work.
My invitation to you is to say yes to all that you know you can create, inside of the most amazing circle of women you will ever meet.
My invitation to you is to say yes. And yes again. And again.

The second year of business I doubled my income and made about $2,000 and I was out of my mind happy.
It took me 4 more years to make an income that provides my gorgeous home, my life, my freedom.
More than anything I am so proud of myself.
That I kept going.
That I knew I would and could do this, as the doubts and fears piled up.
I was born for this.
I was made to create businesses that make others feel amazing, special, loved, understood, seen, held.
My dharma is making others feel special and know that they can do anything, anything, they dream of.
I am a manifestor of the life of my dreams. I am a magic maker. I am all I desire.
I want to take you there.
You are the manifestor of the life of your dreams. You are a magic maker. You are all you desire.
In circle together we will cross into 2018.
There is no other program I teach that lights me up like this one.
Sitting outside on the back deck the other day, my love and I were talking about motivation and desire and sales and I got to a deeper understanding of why I love business and why I must do this work.
Partly the high from the ideas and the launch and the gatherings of amazing women. Partly the ability to sit at home with my coffee with no pants on snuggled in my cozy sweater, typing these words, laundry going, dishwasher buzzing, being able to take care of and nurture my family inside of a slow morning where my brain is buzzing with the possibilities and dreams and actions that will come from the circle.
And partly the words that flow back to me, inside of all this as I sit inside my own stress and fears during the launch, like, "Sending you blessings and big love, to you who loves so many of us. I'm manifesting the next circle. It was life changing."
This. All of this.
If it feels right to you at this time, welcome to the circle.
I am so happy you are here.
