What I learned from Walt Disney and How I Apply It to My Own Coaching Business

First off, let me say that I am a huge Disney fan- convert- devotee- addict- you name it. But for me, it’s not about the rides or Mickey or the ease of having annual passes to the world’s most popular destination…

it’s about creative fulfillment. I love that Walt imagined the best of what the human mind can create and then he set out to make it a physical reality. He has even been quoted as saying that ‘this IS my reality.’

See, I grew up thinking you go to college, work hard at a job, take a vacation or two each year, buy a home, retire etc…

And to some degree I did those things. And you know what? I felt trapped and bored. NOT a good combo for this girl. That was not the reality I wanted- I wanted creative fulfillment. I wanted the freedom to travel. I wanted to be where I felt the most alive , doing what I loved the most.For me, that just wasn’t going to happen following the status quo. I would share my vision early on with people and most of the time I got eye rolls and smirks.

But I did it. It took me a little while to learn and accept my true limitless value and how that lines up with any creative income generator…but I did it.

And THAT is the reality I want for you. The one I/you create that feels best. I think that is what Walt was saying…you can choose your own reality by lining up your passion with your gifts and life experience in a way that serves others profoundly.

Walt, Roy… you two brothers outdid yourselves. The world (or most of it) took notice and we keep coming back for more of the MAGIC.

I place these same timeless rhythms into my consulting and coaching biz helping people around the globe, for the past 4 years, create and launch successful dream businesses, helping them to create a new reality.

One of the things I first did when I started my own business was to look at what, in my industry, could be improved upon. I noticed some BIG holes and gaps in the biz coaching industry and endeavored to fill the holes as part of my signature offerings.

And it worked, my biz continues to grow bigger and better each year.

I believe this is because I give the experience to my clients that I want to receive myself. I go above and beyond because I am as fired up about their dream biz as they are. That is the Walt coming through in me. There are no holes and no limits, friends.

Another part of my biz is music and also is one of the reasons I adore Disney. As a professional vocalist and top line writer- music is in my bones and one of my dreams is to get a song placed somewhere within the Disney network. Now, when I started creating songs a few years ago, I had no clue what I was doing I just went with my heart. I got interested in sync music and knew that was where I wanted to be musically. So, 5 signed songs later…that is gaining traction. My point is , 3 years ago I had no clue nor could I see myself successful as a songwriter- singer heck yes- been wowing crowds for years…but writing melody and lyric?

Hmm… makes me wonder what more lies ahead that I didn’t really think I could pull off.

Same goes for you, by the way.

What is one thing you have been wanting and have not yet received?

Why Coaching is absolutely STILL one of the best businesses to be in.

I work with women and men around the globe who want freedom and fulfillment that comes from helping people.

They are coaches. They are teachers. They are corporate executives. They are doctors.

They are parents. They are office assistants.

But…the two things they all have in common is Passion for helping people overcome something that they themselves have overcome AND they have a strong desire to turn this offering into a sustainable successful freedom-centered business of their own.

There is a lot of noise on social media now about ‘6 figure months…get rich while you sleep’ etc…and while there is truth to this as a real possibility for anyone…real success starts and ends with helping someone overcome a problem. And your version of that is real and profound…don’t minimize your gifts. They were given to you for a reason.

I love my clients and I get as excited for them as they do. But believe me when I tell you, working closely with people is not for the faint of heart.

Many shy away from it.

It is the work that moves the needle….for real. It is also the work that changes lives…makes a profound impact…and creates opportunity for life changing financial success..freedom.

See, I think the world needs more BRAVE and less brag. That is where the one on one coaching comes into play.

It’s brave and powerful.

It’s lucrative in ways that allows successful coaches to make an even bigger impact and change life for their family.

It’s giving someone a co-pilot, a co-creative mind to work with and can flip the switch. YES!

So…coaches I salute you. You are seen. You are loved. You awe and inspire and please keep …ON.

the LIES

I am here to help you successfully create a new source of fulfilling income…a beautiful heart led business of your own.

I believe your heart can pull this vision off.

I believe you have got the chops to back up the vision.

Why do I believe this?

I believe this because I was right where you are now…and now I am in my 5th year of truly successful business growth. Thank you God.

I believe this because I am not for the faint of heart and if you’re here- you’ve got passion in your gut.

Like minds and all that…

So what do you think is holding you back from doing what you REALLY want to do?

I may be stepping out on a limb here but…
I believe what often keeps some of us from really owning our success is the belief of finite space for true leaders. The belief that there is not enough room is Lie #1.

There is always room for true leaders with a servant’s heart.

I believe there is another obstacle for people who keep tucked to themselves the goodness the world so desperately needs.
Lie #2~ I must reach the masses to be truly successful in my own online business.

NOTHING could be further from the truth!
Indeed, if you are going for the masses BEFORE you have successfully served the individual, you will not succeed.
Let me say this again- it’s important.
Your success is birthed from your ability to dial in to a small niche. Your ideal market- the people who desperately need what YOU have to give them. Start with small and close…serve profoundly and then circle up and ripple outward.

So let me ask you this…what change do you want for yourself in 2019?
What feeling do you crave more of in 2019?

Write it out and send back to me here. I read every single one. There is power in claiming it for yourself to another.

Doing this one thing will BOOST your success every time.

As a successful online entrepreneur for the last 5 years, I have learned a few important things on what it REALLY takes to be successful and sustain it.

*Set energetic and time parameters.

It seems everyone in the world now has an online business but there is also a growing trend I have noticed that you may not see…entrepreneurs getting into an all or nothing mindset- they obsess over their biz- worry over it- never put down their phone. They let the biz consume them. They become stressed and irritable and tired and they may not even be aware of it.

This defeats the purpose of why they created it in the first place- more freedom and mobility – more income. And done right, that is where they should be and stay.

Do you see what I mean?  I did it myself a few years back. I have learned that in order for me to sustain what I love- I have to lay it down everyday. I have to walk away from it for a days at a time. I have to breathe life into it and then trust that it now has a life of it’s own.

And it does… I don’t have to hover over it every minute.

I am the one guiding the biz but I don’t let it guide me.

And I am much happier.

Put your phone down. Go on a trip and leave your laptop at home.

Solutions and creative magic cannot come when you are stressed.

If you are in biz for yourself and feeling stuck or overwhelmed on how to get to the next level of income let’s talk.
