Welcome! I’m glad you are here!
I’m Lisa, a Certified Life Coach. I help heart-centered entrepreneurs create a purposeful business that brings JOY to their lives.
My Entrepreneurial Journey Story
I started my entrepreneurial journey in 2013 as a Professional Organizer. Oh, how I wish I knew then what I know now! It seems so clear what was happening now, if only we could live our lives backward, but at the time, I thought being an entrepreneur wasn’t for me. I struggled with spinning in overwhelm and confusion and I didn’t know how to stop feeling this way. If you are also feeling the same, know that you are not alone; I was once where you are now.
As I did, you might also be asking yourself, “What is going on?” You are doing all the things a new business owner does. Checking all the boxes on the checklist: Creating a website, designing a logo, legal stuff, IRS stuff, social media presence, attending conferences, training, and receiving more certifications. Check….Check….Check! I loved checking off all the items on the checklist! It made me feel so productive! Yay me! I was making it happen, or so I thought I was.
Side-note if you want a business checklist, you can get one here. I got you! ;)
Until, all of it stopped happening, and everything came to a screeching halt. Suddenly, I felt stuck when it came time to market my business. AKA putting myself out into the world! These voices appeared out of nowhere: “You can’t do this!” “What if you fail!” “No one is ever going to hire you!” They were relentless! Is this happening to you also?
I couldn’t understand any of it because I wanted to have this business with all my heart. My brain was freaking out. What did I do? – Absolutely nothing that required me to put myself out in the world– I made excuses on why I wasn’t showing up in my business. They were good ones too! I hid from the world by doing tasks that kept me busy but hidden. It felt safer staying in my comfort zone. In my comfort zone, I couldn’t fail or be judged by others for making mistakes. Note: When you want a business, hiding doesn’t get you any clients.
I wasn’t ready to give up my dream yet. I wanted with all my heart to serve others. Plus, have the freedom and flexibility to make money doing what I love to do. I didn’t want to give up on my dream by getting a J-O-B because of my fears. I knew I wanted to overcome this. How did I do this?
I sought help and hired a Life Coach!
My Life Coach made me understand what was happening was normal and that nothing had gone wrong. Stepping out of your comfort zone makes you do crazy things. Your brain likes to make sure you’re safe by keeping you comfortable in your zone (doing all the outside work instead!) She offered the guidance I needed to overcome my self-doubt and live outside my comfort zone (doing the inside work!). AKA get out of my own way!
Life Coaching helped me realize I can market my business aligned with my unique values, energy, and personality. In other words, just be yourself in your business.
This was a life-changer because I knew I was different then most entrepreneurs. What worked for most people didn’t work for me. I learned to embrace my uniqueness and show up as my introverted, sensitive, and empathetic self.
This required me to trust myself not to follow others and create a business that would bring me JOY.
I felt I had uncovered the world’s best-kept secret: Life Coaching!
The biggest reason you struggle is that you don’t have a solid foundation, yourself.
Once you become solid in accepting and trusting yourself and aware of your values, energy, beliefs, and mindset, your business will become solid.
It becomes a JOY to have your own business that feels joyful to you!
I am forever grateful for learning these skills. They not only allowed me to have a Joyful Business but to help others have one too.
This JOY for me turned into a career change, and I became a Life Coach to help other entrepreneurs get over the biggest obstacle standing in the way, YOU!
The hardest part is getting out of your way. Let me help you create a business so you can start impacting the lives of others.
The best part of my story, I am nothing special. If I can do this, you can too! I hope that you always know you are worthy and enough today to have the business and life you want. You are capable of doing great things.
I would love to help you become the entrepreneur that changes someone’s life with the unique gifts that only you can offer the world.
To have an impact on the world, you must take action. The world needs you now more than ever and is waiting for you! Are you ready?
That’s my business side; on the personal side, I’ve been married for 30+ years. I’m a Mom to two wonderful adult children, a ‘war vet’ son and a ‘save the environment’ daughter who happens to be 14 years younger. She came into our lives when we needed her the most. I am also a dog Mom to our maltipoo Kirby. I enjoy being outdoors, walking, hiking, reading, yoga, and anything creative. If it all involves a beach, family, and friends, it’s appreciated even more!
