One of the biggest questions coaches, practitioner, creatives & entrepreneurs have is “can I really make this passion work – without selling my soul, drying up or burning out?”.
There is no way I could run a business that felt disingenuous or that dishonored my body’s sensitive wisdom.
Yet running a business as a feeling, flowing, feminine, sensitive, sometimes chaotic, intuitive woman ISN’T the type of business model that’s seen as a ‘sure thing’.
I’ve heard popular mentors say things like “emotions have no place in business” 🤦♀️ which is TERRIBLE advice when emotions, feelings, sensations & body-based-know are actually a feminine superpower.
This week on the podcast I’ve invited Feminine Embodiment Business Mentor Ainslie Young to join us for a conversation on feminine business.
In this delicious chat we explore:
- Why many marketing strategies feel forced for female entrepreneurs
- Marketing in ways that feel sincere & successful
- The importance of centering just one project at a time (& why that’s inherently challenging for creative women)
- Useful tips for when you don’t understand WHY your body feels so resistant to marketing
- The role of pleasure in productivity – unraveling some common myths
- How to plan your week with more aliveness in mind & body
This is a great episode for coaches (& aspiring coaches), practitioners, creatives & entrepreneurs.
In the podcast episode, Ainslie shared with us a fabulous (free) training about unraveling unhealthy marketing strategies & moving into a more magnetic way of selling your products/services – you can check it out here.
