The blunt truth behind working from ‘feminine flow’

Blunt Truth About Working in Feminine flow

 

I made it! I’ve touched down in Austin, Texas and checked into my favourite hotel the W.

I love being able to travel the world and work from anywhere. To me, this is one of the greatest benefits of having my own business.

I went to the Internet Marketing Party here in Austin last night and when the guest speaker shared his $4 million dollar launch secrets, his parting quote was ‘sorry folks, this does NOT happen by sitting on your laptop on a beach’

The crowd laughed a knowing laugh.  

He had such a good point.

Anyone who is running a really successful business is still ‘working’ to make it happen.

And as female entrepreneurs, I think we are looking for that magical ‘balance’ between freedom and success.

While I see so many female entrepreneurs wanting to live a freedom-based lifestyle, I do think the conversation in female only circles tends to quite skewed.

In a world where ‘feminine’ and ‘flow’ are buzz words we are all striving towards, we can in my opinion fall into a disillusion that all we have to do to make a great income is chant some mantras, meditate on our dreams and maybe host an occasional webinar or facebook group.

With my history of Adrenal Fatigue – I totally get it!

We’re over working HARD… and that is because as females ‘pushing’ is not our natural state.

We are meant to ‘receive’.

In fact sometimes I am witnessing clients so ‘burnt out’ from working in masculine mode their whole lives, that the thought of even taking clients on is too much for them.

I witness most female entrepreneurs falling into one of two camps.

Hustling and pushing, going hard, making it happen! (Masculine Mode)
Meditating, journaling and visualizing a thriving business. (Feminine Mode)

Neither is winning in my eyes.

Option 1 leads to burnout. Option 2 leads to disillusionment.

So what’s a ladyboss to do to generate a thriving business?

BOTH!

There is a lot of talk of ‘working from the feminine’ in entrepreneurial circles, but my own experience has taught me that there is a difference in ‘feminine only practices’ and the ‘empowered feminine’ – which is actually a ‘fierce flow ’ and requires both the feminine and masculine energies working together.

THIS is empowered. THIS is where we create our own reality.

And I believe it is the mix of BOTH that brings the big wins in business.

How does this work?

The feminine energy (creativity, genius, flow) needs Masculine energy (structure, systems, discipline) to be able to flow with it’s full potential.

So what does this mean for you as a female entrepreneur?

To allow our feminine magic, our creative genius, our relaxation and freedom to come through our businesses we MUST have the masculine structures set up first.

Non-negotiable!

If you are on path 1, it won’t be sustainable in the long term. If you’re starting to feel burnt out now, trust me, it’s because as a female you are not supposed to work from 100% masculine PUSH.

If you are currently on path 2, it might feel good for a while but my guess is the frustration of lack of results is going to set in soon.

Of course I’m not sitting here saying I’ve mastered this piece 100% - this is a BIG changed we are learning as females. Yet I have experienced that magical mix in varying degrees for myself and really do see this as a KEY factor behind my business growing 20X in the last 2 years.

I have sold out 4 multiple 6-figure launches in the last few years, and I know for sure that there is an art in utilizing the Inner Feminine Work (trust me, I live and breathe the woo-woo) in conjunction with proven marketing strategy and systems that produce great results.

“Freedom comes through Discipline”

Late last year I decided to dive even deeper into my systems and structures as I really understood that the stronger the masculine side of my business, the more I personally could flow, be free, create... I had mastered the ‘what to do’ in my business, but the more my business grew, the ‘how’ was still leaving me overwhelmed and burnt-out.

The man I turned to, to learn the masculine structure – the ‘HOW TO’?

Todd Herman, a performance mentor to some of the worlds top sporting stars.

Todd won’t tell you WHAT to do in your business (I can show you that part) but he will show you HOW!

I credit his methods for a $250k launch in January amidst chaos in my business and for my ability to be sitting here by the W pool, enjoying writing to you all even though I’m jet-lagged as crazy and still worried about my husband, injured at home.

Todd has just released Video 2, in a 3 part series where he is sharing his methodologies for FREE. I’d love to invite you to check it out to see if it resonates with you too >>

In this video, he’ll be filling your Evernote with: 

- How he stumbled upon the biological mechanism for entering into “flow states” …

- What “Mental Toughness” really means in the world of high-performance… 

- Why simply scheduling your tasks isn’t enough to guarantee progress…  
- The 4W Formula he uses with the world’s highest-performing entrepreneurs and athletes to ENSURE that all their needle-moving actions get done.

BTW – don’t be put off by his ‘masculine’ approach, I’m going through his training again too so I’m happy to ‘translate’ into ‘female entrepreneur’ terms whenever you need!

Let’s do this together.

Running a business amidst chaos

Running a business admist chaos

 

The last few days have been a challenging few. Right now I should’ve been sitting by the pool at my hotel in Austin.

Instead, I am sitting on my sofa at home, cramming in some work before my husband wakes up.

2 days ago, just as I was starting to pack for my month long trip, someone rung to let me know John was in an ambulance on morphine, and on the way to hospital.

I won’t go into all of the details, but he’s now home – with a broken collarbone – and we’re navigating the next steps of surgery, healing and whether he can look after himself while (if) I’m away.

And you see this is just the way it is to be an entrepreneur. Life happens. There is no boss to ring as say ‘I won’t be in today’, there is no sick leave… there is just you.

And while the freedom of working for yourself is honestly such a gift, when life goes crazy, it is equally important to keep the wheels turning.

If we stopped working every time something came up in life, business would simply never grow. You see NOBODY has 24/7 free-time to work on their businesses. We all live in this messy, fast-paced life and learning to how to BEHAVE as an entrepreneur is something we don’t talk about enough.

For me, I really believe that learning to work in flow THROUGH life’s chaos has been one of the KEY reasons for my fast business growth.

In January I was going through another wave of chaos – this time directly in my business.

I was amidst moving my entire business to a new (and complex) system, using a new team in a different timezone. The project had got so behind that it spilled into my launch period of UPswing Mastermind meaning the set-up team had to run the launch.

In what was possibly the most important few weeks of my business year, the system was broken, mistakes were being made (daily) - blank emails were being sent, replays for webinars which hadn’t even aired were going out – and there was just 1 hour a day the team was able to help me due to timezones. Then one of their staff quit and the owner went on holiday mid launch... And I had no control over any of it as I was yet to be trained on the system. I could go on… but it makes me cringe remembering it!  Let’s just say it was chaos behind the scenes.

In the past, I would have either burnt out or crumbled in an emotional mess and given up under such circumstances….

So when I tell you that those same 6 weeks saw me do $250k in sales, you might think I’m telling you a different story!

How did I stay focused on what mattered and block out the chaos to ensure my most successful launch yet and on-boarding of the loveliest group of women I’ve worked with to date?

At the time I had just started working with Todd Herman in his 90 Day Year program. Todd not only guided me on WHAT I needed to focus on during that time, but even more importantly, HOW to work efficiently, effectively and productively – no matter what chaos is going on around.

I credit the behaviour Todd taught me to that launch success, and my entire work habits have been completely transformed this year from working with him.

He teaches how to work from our ‘Oww' or 'Wow' brain and this understanding has not only helped me achieve so much more, but more importantly for me, by working less. For me, with my background of Adrenal Fatigue, I am not willing to sacrifice my health for success as I see so many other ‘success stories’ doing – and so learning how to work SMART has been life changing for me.

2016 has seen me work with so much more EASE. I have so much focus. I work less hours than ever before. And as a result I have had so much productivity! (Let alone the income which has naturally followed)

And when chaos hits, as it has this week. Yes of course it has thrown me around, but knowing my priorities and my own most effective work habits has meant I've been able to keep the important pieces running and for the most part step back to take care of my husband.

If you struggle with overwhelm, prioritizing or productivity as an entrepreneur then I’d love to share with you Todd’s free training course. I am going to be working through it myself again in the next few weeks and would love to offer you the chance to do so as well for free.
