Tell us about yourself
I started my first business at 5, babysitting the neighbor's baby so she could hang out for a coffee party with my mom; I'd run home and tell the mom when the baby awoke. I was a full-time 6-night-a-week sitter by age ten, and in high school, I also had a side business making bowties for all the boys in a chamber and select choirs, recycling old bowtie clips with new black velvet making each tie unique. SO running a business was always part of my personality.
After a successful run in real estate for five years, in '91, I started on a journey of healing for myself; having had a prolonged stint with cancer and having become homeless for nine months, my interest shifted to what is needed to live beautifully and for a prolonged period. At that point, all predictions for my life were extremely short. I made my life and the path I would choose for my recovery and wholeness my business. It was an amazing choice. I opened the door to fulfilling my deepest life purpose and highest level of contribution, and my work continues to evolve and expand to this day.
What's your biggest accomplishment as a business owner?
When you say owner, well, that looks at the incredible body of work I have produced, 12 books, 190 meditations, a meditation app, record product sales on the largest summits, and the breakthroughs I have made in my finances, moving from homeless to a millionaire with my home fully paid no debts. These are all tangible, but the intangibles are equally or even much more important. The discovery of cellular neo genesis, how the body regenerates the removal of harmful DNA, and the work I do in the heavenly realms with God, these areas are extremely important.
What's one of the hardest things that come with being a business owner?
Making sure I have personal time and am doing fun activities. I am so passionate about my work, I love it, and I find I need to be disciplined about turning off the projects and going out to hear music, play with my daughter on a trampoline and enjoy the journey of life as well. My work is effortless; I love it!
What are the top tips you'd give to anyone looking to start, run and grow a business today?
- Make a good plan, and be willing to adjust the plan as you go.
- Get a product or book out quickly, don't wait for it to be perfect, do your best and get it out in the world. This establishes you as an expert. You have way more traction as an expert.
- Pray. Ask God into your work life; ask Him to guide and lead you to making strong solid decisions.
Is there anything else you'd like to share?
Plan to contribute, plan your life as if there are 150 years ahead of you, and plan to accomplish way more than you think you can in the context of a 20- or 30-year career. Allow your mind to dwell in God mind and imagine a world of beauty and love and how you help bring transformations and shifts in to accomplish that.
