Have you ever felt resentful doing something for others because you know deep down that you should have said no? You’re not alone. I’m a recovering people pleaser who didn’t know how to say no or set personal boundaries. Learning how to set boundaries have been an interesting journey for me; dealing with my own People Pleaser that used to worry if I’d still be loved and accepted when I set boundaries. Well, I wouldn’t be writing this if I hadn’t come out of the other side. In this post, which I’ll try to keep it short and to the point, I’ll share with you the steps you can start taking so not only people start respecting you but you also start respecting yourself.
A while ago I asked who would be interested in learning about running successful and sold out events. Many of you said you’d like to know. So let me share some of the ‘behind the scene’ things that go on before everyone sees the final product. First of all I LOVE running workshops and events. I’m in my element once I’m out there speaking. I get to be in a room full of likeminded people and soaking in the collective energy that’s electric. I cry, laugh, scream and transform together with the room.
But I’ve been hiding this part from you all. So today, I’m revealing all of it. You ready?
We're almost November! Before we know it, 2017 will end and we'll start the new year within the blink of an eye.
So today, I want to take you through my journey of the past few years in running my business, workshops, International events and Retreats - so you can see the ups and downs, the challenges I went through and how I got through them.
When it comes to building a successful career, it's more than mastering your expertise. Today, recruiters look for experience, and even more so, the interpersonal traits in potential employees. In this post, I share 6 skills that you can start honing in on not just in your career but also in your business and relationships.
When I started my business, I went through a series of needing to discount my prices, not having the courage to charge more than my peers or even do free coaching work with the fear of asking for the sale. As a result, I started to feel resentful of my business as well as my clients.
Sounds familiar? Well, in this blog post, I’ll share with simple tips and tricks on how you can start charging your worth and how you can get out of your own way.
“I feel alone. Nobody understands me. What’s going on with me? Why am I feeling a lot?” These are some of the common things that I hear from those who have started on the path of awakening.
Whether you have just started practising meditation, experiencing psychedelic plant medicines, working with the healers or had an awakening just by sitting on the bench in the park, this post is for you. This is also for you whether you’ve had a rough patch or hit a wall in your life but ready to get back on track.
It’s the perfect formula to happiness – setting your own hours, creating something new, being the boss, calling the shots, being idolized for your unstoppable success, living a life of freedom… In theory, the concept of entrepreneurship just sounds so sexy (at least I can feel kind of sexy working from the couch in my favorite dreamy kimono robe).
But there’s a dark side. Reaping the benefits of this romanticized career choice requires risks. Gambling with something far more precious than money, time, and security… mental health.
Starting a business is exciting but what many people don't talk about is the challenges that come with it.
I see so many Facebook Ads saying "Quit your 9-5 and start a business. Then you'll have 5-figure months". While that's true for some, that's not the case for others.
One of the things that I like doing in my business is to learn from those who have been there and done that but not so far ahead of where I am. That way I can save time from making the common mistakes that everyone makes and speed up the process of building a successful business.
So in this post, I want to share with you 8 mistakes I made in the first year of my business.
This is the recount of my memories in the Amazon jungle where I spent two weeks in isolation. During that time, I saw death, rebirth, light, darkness and turned my life 180 degrees. Don't get me wrong - I didn't go there to get fixed. I went there with the mind of a child-like curiosity to experience, a specific intention to grow and learn but what I got was more than what I thought. Click to read more.
If someone had told me tens years ago about this technique called breathwork where I get induced into a trance-like state, see visions and feel like I'm on a psychedelic trip without psychedelics, I would think that the person is crazy. But today, this is one of the things that I swear by. If you're curious what it's all about, click here to read more.

“You should wear the Wonder Woman outfit”.
That was what a friend told me when I decided to run an event in Burma, a place where nobody has experienced the kinds of transformational events I run. Scepticism was to the roof and many thought I would fail.
I’ve never watched Wonder Woman. I’ve never really been into comics and I don’t really watch TV. In fact, I don’t even own a TV. When Wonder Woman came out, so many people talked about it that it sparked my curiosity.
So I watched it the other day and although I wasn’t blown away by the movie, I was smiling throughout the whole movie. Yes it was a bit cheesy but it’s the kind of movie that teaches something - something valuable about life. So without any spoilers on details about the movie, I want to share 8 leadership lessons that I learned from the movie.
If you’re someone who has big ideas and want to achieve great things in life, but wondering ‘even if you’re cut out for the thing you want to do’, then this article is for you.
Can you swim by reading how to swim? The answer is no. You have to jump into the water first - may be struggle or even drown a few times before learn how to swim. Then you learn how to float. Then learn breaststroke. Butterfly Stroke. Sidestroke. Then you might start jumping into the river. Then the ocean. By then, can you teach how to swim? Of course.
The moral of the story is - we learn, we live, we embody and then we go out and share. That’s part of the Hero’s Journey that I frequently talk about.
So below, I will share with you 6 things that you need to look for when you’re thinking of hiring a coach or a mentor.
If you're here, I know that the reason why you have or are starting a business is because you want to make money doing what you love... while making a positive impact in the world. As conscious business owner, we have a heart so big yet the courage so small when it comes to selling.
When you think of the world sales, what are the words that come up in your head? Icky? Salesy? Used car salesman? Pushy? Manipulation? Greed?
I get it. Because I've been there and I'm helping my clients from literally all the over world get comfy with the word sales. And you'll have to sell because... well .. you're running a business. So I want you to be able to sell without being salesy. Now in that sales process, you’ll face objections. Objections are part of the process.
