Many times we think we know what we’re supposed to be doing and we get business advice from people we trust about what we should be doing, but if we don’t get the results we expect that can be really frustrating.
So what do you do when networking, marketing, sales, pricing, branding and advertising don’t solve your business problem?
Maybe it’s time to work on yourself? Self-improvement is business development. Do you have the confidence to promote your business boldly? Are you able to connect effectively and easily with your market, prospects, clients, and even friends and family? Are you able to give and receive value equally and speak to the value of your product or service effectively? Do you really have a deep understanding of your market and a desire to serve?
All of these things will impact the results you get in your business. And, if you aren’t getting the results you want it’s easy to think you have a ‘business’ problem, when really you just need to get back to the basics of emotional health.
Theresa Vigarino and I have an amazing conversation.
The effects of trauma like childhood sexual abuse, physical abuse, emotional abuse, bullying, or divorce include things like depression, anxiety, fear, worry, problems expressing anger or desire, and even interfere with our ability to feel joy or happiness.
It’s easy to see, at least in retrospect if not while you’re struggling in the moment, how much these feelings can impact both how you feel about your business and the actual results you’re getting.
Theresa and I break it down and talk about her healing and what you might be able to learn from her experience to move forward in your own life.
Just a fireside chat of sorts on the podcast today. I just wanted to let my audience know how the show is doing and what’s been going on in my life, so I spend about 12 minutes just giving a heart felt update and connecting with my audience.
Let me know what you think and I’d love to hear from you if you like the show.
The idea of competing motivations has really been on my mind lately. Feeling simultaneously like I want something and I don’t want something. Feeling bad about good news. Feelings that appear to contradict each other. Without awareness this very common situation can lead to frustration or even disaster. I’ll share a couple examples from my own life and encourage you to look closer at areas where you may be feeling this same kind of ambivalence.
Here’s the conclusion of this series of podcasts on Inner Child Healing, which I recorded with Jade Inspiration.
Inner Child Healing might help you if you have experienced emotionally traumatic events like bullying, abuse, parental divorce or substance abuse, or the like.
If you find that depression, anxiety, fear, anger are holding you back in your career or your life, or if you keep running into limiting beliefs or self-protective behaviors that aren’t serving your goals and desires, you need to check out this series.
I continue my series on Inner Child Healing with Jade Inspiration in this episode. Many times people don’t have (or don’t remember or don’t recognize the impact of) emotional trauma on their present experience. Does that mean we don’t have to worry about it? What if we’re still struggling, how do we deal with those situations? Jade and I answer these questions.
Katherine and I have a great conversation about how unhealed emotional trauma and negative emotional energy from our past affects our present. If events and situations in our present are triggering us and causing us to reactivate and utilize that negative energy old habits, beliefs, and behaviors from our past we need to first recognize the impact that’s having on our results today and then do the work to heal the trauma and let go of all that negative emotion and energy.
