A Very Merry December Coaching Special

Posted on: December 21, 2016 Category: For Coaches

Dear heart-centered, freedom-loving coach / healer / creative woman entrepreneur,

I’ve got some VERY exciting news for you today!

This is the time of the year when we start:

  • Thinking about our goals for the next year, including what it is we are deeply yearning to bring forth (whether it’s a launch in business, develop a new offering/product/program, book in and create impact for a certain number of clients, or make a certain amount of income per month to fund our dreams/vision)
  • We also start wondering how we can experience our goals – who we require to BE, what we require to DO, and what kind of structure and support we require in place for the entire journey to be one of EASE and ALIGNMENT

Do you have the support, structure, and accountability you feel you require to CREATE & EXPERIENCE your own 2017 goals?

One of my favourite gifts is to invest in my own transformation for the next year!

I’d love to support you in 2017 – and to make it as easy as possible, I’ve opened up 5 spots for A Very Merry December Coaching Special!!


Do you feel:

  • Burnt out from operating in overdrive or overworking
  • Overwhelmed by a mountain of to-dos
  • Lack of clarity (unsure where to begin, what your message is or like you have a million things you could be doing and unsure where to even start!)
  • A battle or struggle with self-worth when it comes to your pricing, packaging, or launching new offerings
  • Confused about what to do on a daily basis to book clients and make an impact with your work
  • Paralyzed by fear and stuck in inaction

 

During our coaching sessions and work together, you’ll:

  • Create a business that feels really aligned and one you really love (think: messaging that feels authentic and fun, packages and pricing you are excited about, ideal clients you book with ease and who love working with you – and vice versa)
  • Dissolve limiting blocks and beliefs that may be draining you or holding you back from your goals
  • Align with your income and money goals
  • Launch new programs, offerings, and projects with confidence
  • Access and trust your own business guidance
  • Be accountable in implementing and taking action, inspired, and establish consistency in your business

Sound good? :-)

Holiday season ease & peace (yes – it’s possible!)

Posted on: December 12, 2016 Category: Self Mastery

I used to feel so much angst and stress during the holiday season.

The rush, the self-inflicted pressure to make sure everything was in place perfectly to welcome in a new year.

The (hello again) self-inflicted pressure to make sure this precious season was filled with quality moments.

And before I knew it – it was all over.


In the midst of the rush, the entire 2 weeks had flown by, now beyond my grasp.

In the midst of playing keep up, I had missed the opportunity to carve out space for what’s truly important – to me.

I was so swept up last year that I only started writing down my goals and intentions for the year in late January/early February. (Of course, better late than never! But most importantly – it didn’t really feel of service for me.)

I didn’t get to sit with my love – curled up on our comfy couch – to discuss our individual and couple’s goals.

In fact, I felt a tinge of misery for being away from him for 2 weeks during Xmas time. (I had a great time away, but I also missed him terribly!)


This year I knew I desired a different experience – and I knew that things needed (and required) to be different, so this weekend we’ve created our holiday intentions together.

Before we get swept up by the parties …
You know… The decisions, the expectations, the hugeness of it all.

Here it is! Sharing my intention with you ;)

“My intention is to experience ease – and comfort – during this holiday season. I intend to consciously experience (and remember, and FEEL) the moments that count:

The smell of our favourite Christmas candles burning, the warmth of cuddles on our luxurious couch, how each vision board cut-out feels as I run my hand through them – arranging my board with that detail-oriented discernment that I bring to every experience I show up in, curling up with a good book, conversations with Steve on our individual and shared visions, belly laughs with the best kind of company, dipping my toes in the ocean water, the refreshing whole body sensations from diving into the waves, laying on the soft white sand in the Australian summer…

I intend to invest in, say yes to, indulge in and ENJOY space, quality, true alignment – and make aware decisions based on what is truly important to me.

This or something even better for the highest good of All concerned.”


Upon setting my intention, a few things happened:

♥ An opportunity that would keep me busy in December fell through, which created a lot of SPACE for me

♥ During a session with my coach, I realized I didn’t want to launch my new offering in December. So we’ve decided to launch it in mid/late January 2017 instead (keep your eyes peeled! :)

♥ Because I decided not to launch in December, I was guided to more information that would make said offering even more valuable and powerful

♥ I made the decision not go to Melbourne for 5 days next week, because it wouldn’t have aligned with SPACE, quality, comfort, ease, or alignment (and I didn’t experience major FOMO – fear of missing out – because I knew what I deeply required and desired to experience)


Furthermore, I already know that December is going to be a peaceful, easy, and enjoyable month – which (honestly) is something I have dearly missed for the last 2-3 years!

December 2013 – I had just moved out of a toxic, energetically draining rental situation. I packed everything I owned within the afternoon (with the help of my cousin) and moved to my new beautiful apartment in Perth city. I received a few threatening emails over the holiday season (and thank the angels) my cousin is a lawyer and was available to support me at this time! I felt uneasy – but grateful that I had care and support around me. It was just the two of us (and we had pizza).

December 2014 – we were organizing our move to Sydney from Perth (me) and Brisbane (my love), and on the search for our Sydney home from Langkawi, a beautiful coastal town in Malaysia!

December 2015 – I took a spontaneous 2.5 week trip to visit my family (with my sister – it was so significant as she had just finished university and we knew that it might be more difficult to coordinate long holidays once she started working) … and a girl’s trip in Bali!

December 2016 …
Yes to space.
Yes to keeping things simple.
Yes to asking for (and then taking action on) exactly what we desire to experience, now.

Over to you:
– How do you desire to FEEL this holiday season?
– What kind of experience do you desire to HAVE during the holidays?
– What do you desire for this holiday MEAN to you?

Create an intention – and feel free to share it with me, or even better – your family, friends and partner!

To a JOY-filled December,

5 Ways to Access A Deeper Level of Self-Worth in Business (As a coach, healer & creative entrepreneur)

Posted on: December 1, 2016 Category: Business & Entrepreneurship/ For Coaches

Having a deep, secure and innate relationship with our self-worth can greatly affect how much ease and alignment we experience on the way to manifesting and creating our goals and visions.

Being able to claim and own our worth helps us receive guidance and (of course) take action on what we truly require to do in order to reach our goals, whether that’s:

  • Launching a passive income product or offering
  • Raising our rates to reflect where we are right now
  • Creating and sharing our authentic content
  • Being visible and seen by others
  • Saying ‘yes’ to exciting opportunities
  • And more…

On the other hand, not having a solid foundation when it comes to self-worth could see us:

  • Spending too much time researching (but never taking outward action that puts us out there, in the game)
  • Get stuck trying to make our work ‘perfect’ before we feel confident launching it
  • Analysis paralysis in comparing our work with others
  • Self-sabotaging our progress (one step forward, two steps back – or creating more ‘challenges’ in other areas of our life)
  • Go into hiding and paralysis when we don’t get the feedback we desire – or perceive negative judgement from others
  • Feel burnt out, overworked, and resentful in our work
  • A lack of growth, excitement, and enthusiasm towards our work as we don’t allow ourselves to take the next step in our personal or business evolution

Here are 5 ways to start accessing a deeper level of self-worth in your business:

1 // Detach your self-worth from the performance, results, feedback (or lack thereof) of your work/actions

As a heart-centered, creative entrepreneur who’s committed to creating and living our most authentic work – it can hurt when we don’t get the feedback we expect on our latest creations/offerings/actions.

Being able to really ‘get it’ that the results and feedback you receive aren’t a reflection of how worthy you are – or how good your work is – allows you to get back out there and try again (vs. hiding in shame that ‘it didn’t work’)!

2 // Re-define your measure of success and worth.

Instead of basing it on external measures, measure your success on:

Whether you show up 100% in your business today…
Whether you were accountable to yourself (and did what you said you would do)…
Whether you dared greatly and boldly today (showing up even though it risked failing)…

Let these be the measure of your success.

3 // On that note, detach your self-worth from your pricing system

One thing that can get us stuck is pricing – I’ve definitely been there with this, and over the last 5 years of coaching entrepreneurs – I’ve seen clients struggle with this piece more times than I can count!

Your pricing is not your worth – charging X amount doesn’t mean you are less worthy than someone who charges more than you do or vice versa.

So, if you feel like you’ve attached your self-worth to how much your charge for your packages – stop.

You are worthy to begin with – no matter what your pricing dictates.

From this space of worthiness (and ease and fun and joy), is where you set your most aligned pricing.

4 // Focus on your journey, and what is right for you

Take comparison out of the equation.

If this means stopping yourself from obsessing over someone else’s packages/pricing/website/social media – do it.

If this means unsubscribing (or forwarding the email straight to ‘Archives) for the time being – do it.

No longer being in comparison mode means not feeling inadequate (or judging yourself as lazy!) when you see someone else doing something – that you aren’t. It means not feeling stressed when nobody else is doing what you’re doing, too.

Out of comparison mode, we can start discerning what is right for us, individually.

Which takes me to…

5 // Be 100% in your own energy

Quite often we scatter our energy by comparing our journey with someone else’s (see point above), or where we were in the past/where we feel we should be.

Neither of these are anchored in the present moment, which is where we are creating our goals from. Bringing your energy back to yourself means being 100% on your own path, in your own energy/power, in the Now.

Meditate, journal, invest in coaching, go out in nature – support yourself in re-aligning back to embodying 100% of your own energy in your business, and life.


I’ve put together a free 45-minute training for you, specifically on self-worth and claiming your worth in business.

We’ll dive in deeper with some of the points I’ve mentioned here, and I’ll also share more on how you can enhance your self-worth in your business today.

If this is something that you are looking to enhance – then join us on the webinar today. I really hope you do because it’s something that will absolutely change your business and life!

Having this piece in place is the foundational piece that will support you in creating your income and money goals – and increasing your impact with your business.

See you on the webinar!

A Book A Week 1-9: Relationships, Creative Living & More

Posted on: November 24, 2016 Category: Jia Ni Loves

abookaweek1-9

Back in late September, I felt this nudge within me.

A white heat of desire … to read more.

It’s one of those things I’m always saying, with a but … Anyway, that day it FINALLY felt like it was time to put together a project of sorts – something tangible, even measurable (a SMART goal of sorts).

This is when the idea to do “A Book A Week for The Rest of The Year” landed in my life!

My friend Claire Baker had been doing A Book A Week for A Year throughout the year, and every single time she updated it always piqued my curiousity (what is she reading? how is she reading more books in a month than I have in the last 12 months?). I was intrigued.

And before I knew it, I had her spreadsheet downloaded and ready to go, a stack of library books checked out, and I was ready to roll.


Whilst I aimed to read a book a week, it didn’t really always happen exactly that way.

Some days I would devour half of a book, and at times it would take me over two or three weeks to read a book.

Most of the time, somewhere in between.

What was constant for me was I scheduled 30 minutes of reading time every. single. day. and sat on the couch with a book in hand at some point each day – usually first thing in the morning.

I also learnt so much about letting go (big one for this perfectionist ;), trusting and giving myself permission to do what feels right throughout the entire process, including:

  • Remaining unattached to form (number of pages/books per week). My only commitment was to show up, flip open my book, and read (no matter how fast/slow I went)
  • TRUST that each book will be completed in time
  • Giving myself permission to go at my own pace
  • Giving myself permission to let a book go if I knew it was time to put it down and pick up a different book

If you’re thinking of taking on a similar project, I hope this helps you – and just go for it! ;)

Without further ado, my first 9 books!


ON RELATIONSHIPS

abookaweek_relationships

1. The 7 Principles for Making Marriage Work: A Practical Guide from the Country’s Foremost Relationship Expert

A powerful, easy to read, eye-opening book on creating a beautiful marriage/partnership. I especially loved learning about The Four Horsemen (which, since being made aware of them I have to say it’s been a huge shift!) and the seventh principle on how to create shared meaning within a relationship!

2. Love is Letting Go of Fear

A really easy read – an introduction to letting go of fear and embracing open-heartedness in life and relationships. I found myself nodding a lot throughout the book, confirming lots of principles I do my best to live by, coupled with pages of AHA moments

3. The Relationship Handbook: A Path to Consciousness, Healing, and Growth

I loved Shakti Gawain’s book on Creative Visualization, and this one on relationship was a lovely read too! I loved learning about our primary/disowned/shadow selves and how they affect our relationships today. Two thumbs up!


ON SELF DEVELOPMENT

abookaweek_selfdevelopment

4. Big Magic: Creative Living Beyond Fear

This is actually my first read by Elizabeth Gilbert (yes, I know)! I picked it up early this year but forgot about it for 10 months, and the second time attempting to read it I absolutely loved it! A refreshing take on creativity and living a creative life – especially with fear. Highly recommend for creative entrepreneurs, coaches, and people who simply desire to live a life infused with more creativity.

5. You Are Enough: How To Elevate Your Thoughts, Align Your Energy & Get Out of the Comparison Trap

An all encompassing book on how to embrace and enhance your self-worth through different principles and tools. I loved soaking in every page of Cassie’s book and it’s one that I’ll keep referring back to!

6. L’art de la Simplicite: How To Live More with Less

Anything on minimalism really interests me, and this book absolutely delivered! Teachings on how to choose quality over quantity in our home, our body and diet, our skin and beauty, and more. I especially LOVED the chapters on simplicity, exquisite quality, and how to live that in our home!

7. Cortisol Connection: Why Stress Makes You Fat and Ruins Your Health — And What You Can Do About It

Having experienced fatigue and burn out, I’m always fascinated to learn more about stress and how it affects us – and this was an incredibly riveting read! Practical, easy to implement tips on how we can manage stress within our life even in today’s world where chronic stress and go go go is celebrated – and expected. There’s also a bunch of scientific evidence in the early chapters for the science nerds in us (I’d say these chapters would be hard to understand without a degree in science, but totally optional chapters to read IMO).


ON GOALS & BUSINESS

abookaweek_goalsbusiness

8. The Best Year of Your Life: Dream It, Plan It, Live It

Reading The Best Year of Your Life really invited me to identify where I’m operating on ‘some day’ magical thinking, and how I can embrace creating my best life this year. I wrote down a couple of dreams (as per an exercise in one of the chapters), and have already ticked some of them off! This book will teach you how to take complete ownership and full responsibility for your life, including how you can start creating + living your best life – right now.

9. The Prosperous Coach: Increase Income and Impact for You and Your Clients

I highly recommend this book for every coach, especially coaches at the beginning of business! It covers so much ground, and while most of the principles taught are the things I now have in place in terms of structure and mindset, I wish I knew how important these were earlier! ;) Lots of incredible mindset pieces on really valuing your work as a coach, guiding your clients in creating powerful results, and approaching business with heart. Really easy read – and lots that can be implemented from the book! A great resource for coaches!
