3 Reasons Why You Shouldn’t Quit Your Business Just Yet – My Lessons learned investing in coaching

April 22nd, 2015 | no comments

Luxury to me was spending $4.50 on an organic mocha once a week as my treat.

At the time I had my day job on the side making sales calls on behalf of a business coach about 25 – 30 hours a week

In my heart though I knew I was being called to get my own gifts out in a way that felt authentic to me.

So I attracted in an opportunity to have a session with a coach whom after listening to me and what I needed, extended her hand and said she would love to help me.

The investment? $25,000 to work with her for a year.  Shit!

The most I’d invested at that point was $4k, $6k and $5k, on my training to become a coach and various $997 courses that gave lots of great training and info.. but never had I had invested this much to have weekly handholding by someone who had already done it. Someone who had broken through and offered to help me in a way that actually resonated.

I couldn’t deny that my heart really wanted to do this.. and so I dug deep and with palms sweating, taking deep breaths, heart racing – took out my card to make my deposit.

Did I make a whole heap of money all at once? No.

For me.. that discomfort looked like going without much of a social life whilst I built my business that year.  My coaching investment per month was bigger than all of my personal expenses combined.  Passing on beautiful shoes I saw in the window or having to be okay that I hadn’t updated my wardrobe in a while. My priority was learning to get my gift out.. so that’s where my money went.  I let myself have a little bit of guilty pleasure (that was my weekly mocha in Elsternwick).

We often talk about the ROI in coaching.. and sometimes expect it to be immediate. It wasn’t always immediate for me. At least not in the beginning when there were still things that needed to be learned in the muscle, experiences to be had.

When you make an investment in yourself.. you can never lose. You can never lose the learning, the lessons. Your value goes up – you’re an ever increasing asset as you pay into that account to be who you need to be.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Lesson 1: After a while though you reach a tipping point.. where everything you ever learned before.. suddenly has the right environment in which to make a massive breakthrough.

That happened when another special mentor entered my life by which point I had racked up some credit card debt doing even more investing. I could have gone “oh well I’ve invested so much already and if it still hasn’t worked then maybe I’m done.. I may as well just try and do the whole 9-5 thing”

Yet I knew that wasn’t meant to be my path. I came here to be a Light and my vehicle was Business.

Fastforward 2 years later from hiring my first coach, I experienced getting to 40k in under 4 months. And getting to 13k in sales in 3 days. For the first time it felt like “wow..this is what I’d been desiring all along! To have a business that sustained me and my lifestyle” – it wasn’t a hobby anymore. It felt real.

…. Yet how often is it that we quit way too soon?

Either we quit right before the breakthrough or expect so much of ourselves that we want to become an overnight success and when it doesn’t happen like those glowing testimonials we see.. we think something is wrong with us!


Let me tell you what my experience has taught me:

Do you want to know what happened when I decided to invest the $25k with my coach back in 2010 – where I was almost thinking I had to give up on my coaching dream?

 

I was completing my pro bono sessions, my first client actually paid me $1997/= to continue working with me. To me that was significant.

Shortly after that I created my first ½ day Private Day..  it was $497/ = .

For someone who was earning $20/hour at her day job to receive $497/= for ½ a days work that was in my gift zone.. was mindblowing to me.

My system was getting used to what it’s like to exchange my services and receive something in return. My cells were reorganising and re-arranging themselves afterwards because something shifted in me that day.

 

So ROI you ask?

Not as much as $25k right at the start – but that investment has paid back countless times because there are still lessons that I draw from it to this day.

.. but what I learned that year set the foundation for a myriad of things to come, like:

  • What it meant to build a boutique coaching business,
  • What it meant to carry that level of “Being”-ness,
  • Who I needed to Be in order to create that.

That year in 2010 I also sold my first $4k package : ) it was to a personal training studio that I was working out in at the time. I remember ordering a chamomile tea in order to calm my nerves whilst in that sales meeting. I had just turned 24 years old , naiive to boot – I wanted to train their entire studio and came up with a Huge programme and later realised you’re meant to ask Companies if they had a budget : ) Yet.. the owner saw enough in me to give him the confidence that I was their person to train their main sales guy.

Did $4k sort out all my bills at the time? Nope. What it did for my confidence in myself was “priceless”. The lessons it taught me whilst I went through that experience was priceless. I had to get a visceral experience of what that was like.

I had a special spring in my step. I look up at the blue sky in the city of Melbourne  that day and said Thank you to the Big Guy watching over me. Because to Me.. that was a victory.

Lesson 2:

When we ask God to help us get our gift out or we ask for a certain amount of money to come into our lives for our exchange in the world.. He is Soo Loving that He doesn’t just drop it into your lap.

What happens instead is you get an arm reaching out … a life line.. the help comes disguised as Opportunity – that you can choose to step up and bring into your life.

When we pray to God to ask for help, usually the "help" comes disguised as an Opportunity

When we pray to God to ask for help, usually the “help” comes disguised as an Opportunity

(In my case.. I had prayed for help.. and then soon after I attracted in my coach). I wanted to invest a day with  my coach in France and then a couple of days later I received an opportunity to serve my PT studio. I had to be open to the signs to see it and invite it in. I was soo uncomfortable and yet I knew I could help them.

For some of you it could look like sponsoring an event or deciding to have your own event and the costs associated with it might be scary to you.

Usually these Opportunities come at a step or two above where you’re at.. so you need to move through the discomfort you’re feeling to even take it. (Remember the investment? It was way above where I was at or even earning at the time)

Yet there was a knowing inside that it was the right step for me and a journey of “earning the right” to receive for my own exchange in the world because I knew what it meant to dig deep and invest in that way, to learn the ropes, to get the learning in my muscle.

For me, my biggest returns have been :

  • My self value going through the roof,
  • My consciousness expanding rapidly.
  • Having believing eyes on my side.
  • Someone I could share my ups and downs with as I took a step each week in the direction of where I wanted to go.
  • Knowing that I am living my purpose each day.. doing the work, showing up for the work working with the exact people I decided I wanted to work with.

 

 If you’re still reading this and you’ve been on your path for a while.. I want to look you in the eye and tell you ..

 

Lesson 3: you still Can do this.. there is a way…And the only way is Through.

Going through that little bit of struggle you might be experiencing right now.. that little bit of grit in your system.. that grain of sand.. it’s just grating, polishing this Jewel that is You.

And if you have the staying power to have faith and keep breathing through any discomfort you are feeling as you uplevel, make scary decisions.. you Will come out the other side.. shining.. radiant. That Star you came here to be.. and your people will thank you.. You will thank you.. for staying true to you and what you came here to do xx

Big hugs to you from me today xx

My baby’s here!!

December 9th, 2012 | no comments

My baby is here : ) My husband and I welcomed our little baby boy this time last week in our home supported by my midwife and doula. It was a 39 hour labour which began early morning on Tuesday and our little angel arrived on Wednesday night – exactly a week ago as I write this note.

 

Having a new born at home certainly reminds you of what it means to be supported and how much it can help you adjust, transition and generally take good care of yourself and your baby.

I remember one thing that I wanted to manifest was plenty of support so I can focus on getting better and healing and also spend as much time as possible Being with my baby instead of having to worry about household chores that need to get done for us to function.

My husband got time off during this time so we can spend as much time together with the baby. My mum was able to take a few days off to help with cooking and cleaning.

As I was dreaming of the kind of support I’d like to have my mum’s friend called on me and wanted to know what she can do to help me. That was so beautiful. I hadn’t even reached out to Ask, and the call was answered. I could not have managed that without some Divine help. Turns out she’s got six weeks of forced leave and she totally wants to be my post natal doula.

In today’s article I share Lesson 3 of what the dolphins taught me about business – it’s about being supported. You’ll find it resonate with you if you’ve ever wanted to do something really bold or adventurous for yourself and wonder if you’ll ever be able to make it happen.. It’s for you also if you tend to worry about the How a lot : ) xx

Much love,
Nadhira

What the Dolphins Taught me about Business – Lesson 3:

Being Supported

by Nadhira Razack

When something is in your highest good.. if your soul needs to experience something in this lifetime, then.. the Universe must support you to make it happen.

When I wanted to fly to Kona to have the experience of swimming with wild dolphins – part of me already knew it was a real calling of my soul to have this experience. I knew because I handed it over to God when I asked, “where would you have me go?”

Once I took the first step and reached out to Dana Mermaid (See lesson 1) and we found that it was really something I wanted to experience, the next ‘masculine’ thing to do was to come up with the way to make it happen. I knew the investment in the experience, I then needed to look at flights, accommodation.

When I knew what the investment was I didn’t just have the funds sitting in my bank account ready to be used for this experience. (Certainly hadn’t planned for this one). This can happen with your desires too. Some of your desires require you to step up to the plate by doing something outside of your comfort zone to have what you want come to pass. Creating funds to go on this adventure was one of my tasks.

In this case, I had a sense of urgency to create the funds in a matter of days because if I waited too long, the airlines may not let me on board. Most people would just stop there, going “Well I don’t have the money for this, so I guess it’s not meant to be”.

From my study of Universal Law, especially The Law of Polarity, I knew better. I know that when the desire is there, the way to make it happen exists simultaneously. You can’t have one without the other. It’s having trust in the law, knowing it works every single time without fail, that I could say Yes to my heart and go manifest the funds.

From a nice clear space when I knew my heart was in alignment with the decision to go on this trip – I knew I could go make it happen. The first step was to be really clear that this was an experience God/Spirit wanted me to have. We’d already established that. I had received multiple signs that this was for me.

If you look out in nature, take a tiger lily for example, -everything in nature organises itself so that tiger lily can really blossom. It will be brought nutrients in the right amount, sunlight, water and it doesn’t for one moment doubt that its needs will be taken care of. The tiger lily doesn’t exclaim “Oh well I think I’m orange enough today, I’m good thanks”. You are no different from that Tiger Lily.

You look at us humans though and we tend to worry all the time about whether our needs will be taken care of. I had to remember in this moment that I am no different than that tiger lily. If my soul has been calling me to this experience and I heard the call, then I Must be supported – no question. I could lean into that feeling and let go of the worry..but just start to practice faith and listen to my intuitive voice about what I could do to manifest the funds.

Stay tuned to find out what happened in a future article.

Lesson 3:
If you make a decision to go for something that is in alignment with your heart, then trust that you will be supported no matter what. Before thinking about the How.. eg. “How will I find the funds? How can it be possible?” , just revel in the feeling that the Universe has got your back. It’s almost like this hand.. picture a strong firm hand on your root chakra, holding you like the strong, loving hand of a father who’s got his baby in the bath – you’re not going to slip.. he’s not going to let you sink.. you can relax and float.. knowing He’s got you.

Whatever your relationship to your father has been.. just knowing that The Universe has got your back can be really healing. Hint: Part of my journey to see the dolphins became possible because I healed even further my relationship with my own father.

How to Apply Lesson 3:
You can often think you’re alone in bringing a solution to your ‘problem’ – if you apply The Law of Polarity.. you could rest in knowing that to any ‘problem’ , there is always a solution.

You just need to ask for it and keep closely attuned to your heart to hear the response. Typically if you’re an entrepreneur and you require the funds for a specific need, the easiest thing to do is to create an offer and then take it to the people who need it the most. It doesn’t mean that’s always the answer though. My answers to manifest the funds came in a different form and it led to my own growth. It taught me about the power of receiving and being open to receiving assistance because I had to reach out and ask for help.

So next time you find yourself facing a specific ‘issue’ – just receive a nice full breath.. (oxygen always helps : ) , be in a quiet space and ask for help – just listen to the answers you get.. and start to action each item on the list. You’re always at choice..
