Seriously, the night he was considering enrolling in the program as he walked out of the hotel after my private invite-only creative renewal dinner event, he looked up just at that moment to witness a shooting star blazing across the black sky. And, weeks prior to my event and meeting in person, Juan had been seeking answers to his discontent in how he was making decisions personally and professionally. Although he had a creatively fulfilling career as DJ/MC for weddings and corporate events then (and now) and was surely headed in the right direction, he was constantly on the fence of what was best for him vs. self-sabotaging his best efforts and intentions. He was puzzled about this behavior and was determined to find the answer to this crazy-making!
I found in the 10 years of mentoring and coaching, we all have this behavior to some degree. It’s core to our humanness. And, there are solutions.
So here’s a before and after look of Juan going through the program that I know will inspire you. When I asked him what his most profound changes in his mindset and decision were making abilities as a result of the five months together, he gave this answer:
- Truly operating in my genius zone, not listening to ego, and alignment with my truth
- My relationship with money
- Spiritual awareness and living in a higher vibration
“Before the program: Honestly, I didn’t really value money. I had no relationship with it. I just saw it for what it was “paper” and an exchange for goods and services. I was not confident in my money conversations when it came to charging my clients. Money felt like a taboo thing you didn’t talk about. I did not track my money nor know my numbers. I would just receive it, have it in one account and spent accordingly.
After the program: It was a complete 180 for me, I was able to truly understand what the real purpose of money is. Money at its purist form is energy. It is how we are blessed for our products or services that we provide others and how we bless other people with it. Tangibly it is “paper” but at its purist form, it a blessing. I have so much respect for it now and I understand that money is abundant therefore; I don’t “fear” not being able to attain it. I now treat it accordingly by tracking it, organizing it and planning for it.
Really changing paradigms in how I think and act with money changed my life and Marla did just that; she was able to truly help me understand how money really works. Really profound and powerful how she was able to do that.”
My approach to mentoring the entrepreneur is very holistic. Meaning, we integrate all of who you are into everything you do so there is less of splintering and more fulfillment and ease. This is done by first replacing old habits, behaviors and mindset with new, more congruent ones that create results in your favor. The spiritual component of life cannot be ignored, especially in your business life, because who you are there is who you are everywhere. There’s a common denominator in all you do – it’s you. Therefore, we discuss Universal Laws of Energy and Quantum Physics. This is a vital part to manifesting your desires and goals as Juan learned.
