Be Selfish

I Come First

Because of my current health challenges, I need to be extremely selective about where I spend my time and my energy. In the past I felt I had the luxury of infinite time. I could always call upon my reserves power through difficult or challenging projects. Where I am today is a different place. Because I know I have some limitations, I’m choosing who I work with and how I work with them more carefully than ever.

The reality, I always have had these option. My old belief system told me something else. I have always had a choice about who I work with and where to spend my time. Because time is more precious to me now, I am more aware of my choices.

I don’t have time to spend with cranky, overly demanding or ungrateful clients. They can find someone else where there is a better fit. I wish them well and am moving on.

The Highest Good

I am choosing to work with people and projects that bring me joy and bring goodness and light to the world. Being positive is a choice. Enjoying what I do is also a choice. The more fun I have, the more fun my clients have and we both enjoy better results. For example, I recently started working with client who is rebranding herself. When we worked together previously, she was in a different place in her life and in a different type of role. She has transformed from who she was then into a magnificent healer, and intuitive shaman, and author, and speaker. She took about a year off to regroup as she processed many changes in her life. She’s ready now to announce to the world her availability and her gifts. We have been working on launching an engagement marketing campaign as well as identifying clear marketing messages.

Our work together has been very synergistic. She appeared as a client right before I was diagnosed with cancer. I didn’t know what was coming for me with regard to my health, nor did she. As it turns out, she specializes in working with cancer patients. She came to me because she wanted to get help marketing a book she co-authored with one of her clients all about dealing with cancer. Call it fate, call it karma, call it synchronicity. I had an intention session with Catherine about two weeks before my diagnosis. I knew at that time I wanted to enjoy vibrant health and own my own power and expertise. The session was amazing. Because of it and Catherine’s intuitive strength and guidance, I was able to receive my diagnosis without falling apart. She has helped me stay centered and calm and open to receiving the love and healing it is available from my friends, from the universe, and from the medical community. When we work together there is a flow of energy, creativity, ideas, and love. It is a blessing to work with her and it energizes me. Catherine Held is an amazing individual. Her Ancestors’ Way healing is a rare and beautiful gift. Helping to tell the world about the work she does is a gift to me.

Go for the Best

In the days ahead, my clients have a high bar when compared with Catherine Held.  I am fortunate that I have her in my life as well as my longtime client, Deborah Myers, the founder of Health at your Fingertips.  Both of these women are powerful and generous healers. The work I do with them helps to heal others as well as myself. The role I play in their lives is to take on their marketing so that they can do what only they can, channeling health and healing for their clients.

Take time to look at your roster of clients. Be mindful when interviewing a new client. When a relationship is mutually beneficial, it is the best of all possible worlds. I wish you well, I wish you health, and I wish you prosperity. By following these principles, like me, you can enjoy your work and increase your profits with ease.
