We all have our money stories sitting in the wings of our mind ready to “keep us safe” when we venture into new territory. Whether it be in our lives, our businesses, or any other venture, our minds are designed to keep us safe from the fear of the unknown. Listen as I do a live coaching session with Rachel Gully and discuss how investing in her business would mean the difference between living her dreams or wallowing in her current reality. 

“You have to decide within yourself, how much longer are you willing to put up with a life that does not excite you and work that does not excite you.” -Emily Williams

Rachel is an empowerment coach for women seeking to overcome body image issues and a lack of confidence in themselves and their bodies. She’s been dabbling in her business for the past 18 months or so, but when Covid hit she knew she needed to start making some changes. She shares that investing in her own coaching would help her move the needle, but she’s not sure where to find the money. 

Now there are many different ways that we can all find the money to fund our dreams, but when it comes down to it, we all face the same fears. The one that is most prevalent for Rachel is the fear of failure and a feeling of having lost out on her dream. But the feelings she fears are the same ones she’s currently living with. 

Listen in as we dig deeper into Rachel’s fears and everything that’s holding her back from moving forward. We also visualize what life would be like if she did move forward in her business, did the work, and came out on the other side of 10 years living her version of success. 

Visualization is so powerful and the future that Rachel maps out is clear and detailed and obviously the vision that she needs to be in service to. If you’ve been dealing with your own mindset blocks, then you won’t want to miss out on this episode.

Do you remember the last time your life took a total 180?  Perhaps it was the time you moved to a brand new home (or city), welcomed a new family member, or quit your full-time job to finally pursue your true passion. Or maybe it was a more sudden, shocking, or sad type of change, […]
