Interested in starting your own entrepreneurial journey in personal and business development but unsure what to expect? Then read up on our interview with Louisa Havers, Founder of LAMH International Ltd., located in Lewes, United Kingdom.
What's your business, and who are your customers?
I am an internationally renowned Success & Business Coach, Creator of The Helix Method, and Master Akashic Records Teacher and Trainer (Soul Journeys® Method). I enable high achievers and coaches to unlock their superpowers, turbo-charge soul-aligned magnetism, and "lift the ceiling" in both their lives and businesses.
Tell us about yourself
I remember when my dad became ill, and I saw all of his dreams to retire and travel around the world and paint and do the things he loved the most get taken away from him. He passed away after a long period of ill health., and it made me realise that life is so short, and we need to stop waiting to do the things that really make us happy.
I had a really successful career in the public sector. I was leading service re-designs across multiple agencies and coaching and mentoring people in their careers in the workplace. I was doing all the fun stuff like lean six sigma, managing change, employee relations, and leadership across partnerships! I realised that the moments that I really loved were coaching and mentoring people. We had pay freezes for years, so I had started looking for ways to give myself a pay rise. Outside of the day job, I was providing life and business coaching for my network marketing business partners, and health coaching for my clients.
The people I worked with got great results. But I was not seeing my kids, and I felt like I didn't have time for life. My father's death was the turning point for me, and when this followed a few years later, with my own bout of ill health with Shingles and Post-viral chronic fatigue, that I realised I had to do things differently. I knew I wanted to do what I loved now and not wait for it, I knew I wanted to reinvent myself even though part of me felt like I couldn't or even shouldn't, and I had no idea what it would look like.
Fast forward six years, and I have completely reinvented myself. I now run a successful coaching business and have learnt the art of reality creation and energetics, and I apply everything I have learnt to myself and my own life. It has been completely life-changing!
What's your biggest accomplishment as a business owner?
Launching my own certification program for coaches to be able to teach their clients to have energetic self-mastery and the art of reality creation so that they can break through their own upper limits and help their clients to do the same has been such a joy! We are still in the early days of this, and it has been such a privilege to see all our clients helping their clients get amazing results!
What's one of the hardest things that comes with being a business owner?
I think there are so many moving parts along the way to growing a business, and the things that are hard for a business owner change depending on where their business is at. For example, CEOs managing employee contracts and ensuring their company is protected from employee poaching can be hard when they identify someone is trying to poach them.
For a newer business owner being able to stay the course whilst you are trying new things can feel hard. So I think developing emotional resilience is key for all business owners so that they can flow through the peaks and valleys of growing a business.
What are the top tips you'd give to anyone looking to start, run and grow a business today?
- Be committed to your energetic and mindset work so you develop emotional resilience for your journey. This is the most important thing you can do.
- Consciously create the identity of the future version of yourself who has the business you desire, and live from that consciousness now so that you can collapse the time it will take to receive it. Our behaviors and actions are driven by our thoughts and emotions, which form part of our identity. Change your identity, and you'll change your results!
- If you are thinking, how do I do tip number 2? Then this one is for you. Imprint into your subconscious the thoughts, emotions, and beliefs that will support you by doing energy healing and releasing all the hidden beliefs that you hold from childhood, past traumas, and financial traumas that your subconscious is holding onto. Release those, so they don't drive your behaviour moving forward. And then take a new bunch of beliefs and emotions for a spin by imprinting these into your subconscious and energetic field.
