Q: How were you inspired to start your business?
My business started 5 years when I responded to a Craigslist ad. The ad ended up being for an MLM, which has forever changed my life. At that point, I was going through a major life change, where I’d quit my job and moved without a back-up plan! Since I had more freedom, I figured I had nothing to lose with the MLM – I knew I wanted more for myself and that I wasn’t meant to be a classroom teacher for the rest of my life.
Over the past 5 years, my business has evolved to where it currently is and continues to grow. As I stepped more and more into my spiritual gifts, the MLM I was with no longer resonated with me, so I left. I’m forever grateful for the doors the MLM company opened for me, the growth it provided me and life it’s allowed me to create as a result of it.
Q: How much do you love what you do?
What I do brings me pure joy! It’s an honor to be a part of my clients’ journey and to watch the healing, growth and transformation process that they experience.
Q: If you could go back to a point in your life when you were facing a challenge, what inspirational advice would you give yourself?
Shit happens, don’t be so hard on yourself. There is magic in the mess and it’s helping you grow without you even realizing it.
Q: Tell us how your business inspires your customers!
My business inspires others by letting them know that they aren’t alone – we all have struggles and it’s through these experiences that we grow, learn and evolve.
Q: Knowing you aren’t alone in something and that there is light at the end of the tunnel means a lot when you are feeling low. What is a typical problem someone you work with might be facing and how do you guide them back into the light?
Great question. I take a different approach and instead of guiding them back to the light, I show them how to embrace the light within the darkness. There is magic in our messes and wonder in the darkness, although it may not seem like it in the moment. It’s during these times of struggle that we grow, expand, and discover how strong we truly are. We uncover parts of ourselves we didn’t know existed, and let go of those parts that no longer serve us.
It’s also during these challenging times that we uncover patterns that keep leading us to these bad situations and the habits which keep taking us back to our old ways – not to mention, the limiting beliefs and programming which no longer serve us.
By taking the time to really examine what’s going on during the dark moments, we learn more about ourselves than we do during the light. We are reborn!
Q: As people we are always evolving and learning things on our life journey. Where do you find inspiration?
I find inspiration daily. My biggest inspiration though is a little face of wonder and magic that greets me throughout the day on my phone. My niece is one of my driving forces and even though she’s only 2½ years old, she inspires me to dig deeper, to push harder, and to be a role model for her.
Q: Businesses are always evolving too… what are you inspired to do next?
I recently launched Soul Alchemy Apothecary, an online space of spiritual & magical tools, services, classes, and courses for those desiring to alchemize their life. The teacher in me wants to teach and the creative in me wants to create, so I created a space for both those callings.
I’m also writing my first book and taking my message to the stage.
