This is my second entrepreneurial venture, and I’ve learned moving to self-employment doesn’t immediately solve problems. I’ve had to learn to self-lead my life, and I struggled with this the first time around. Don’t leave a career thinking life gets better somewhere else, unless you’ve truly looked inside yourself first.
10 years ago, I needed the embodied leadership support I now offer to others. I was high-achieving, yet struggling.
When my mother was diagnosed with cancer, clients from the corporate and medical world showed up needing my help. My mother’s death changed me, and I’m compelled now to help others.
I have heard this quote many times over the last eight years during my silent meditation trainings –
“What is it you plan to do with your one precious and wild life?” by Mary Oliver.
Yet it never hit me at an embodied level until last year.
Take a whole-self leadership approach so you can run your business without burning out. We’re constantly bombarded with external stimuli beyond our control, and we need to cultivate an internal mastery over our body, emotions, nervous system and mind so we’re not shaken by life as a leaf in the wind.
