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.

Less Is More- do you really believe it?

Less Is More and Curly Red Hiar

My daughter has a head full of red curls. Once a week without fail, someone will come up and ask me “Carolan, I can see where she got her red hair but where did she get those gorgeous curls?”

I smile and say “well we don’t know!”.

I believed this.

Then this past week, after washing my hair and being pressed for time, I decided to forgo using any conditioner or serum for dry hair, I would just have time to use shampoo. I knew it would mean my super thick hair would be tough to comb out but I did not have time.

I washed, towed dried partially and went out with my daughter. In 30 minutes, I passed a mirror and was amazed.

I had a head full  of bouncy curly red hair! It felt light and free and it was well…lovely to see. I felt lighter inside and looked brighter outside.

I was shocked that the conditioners or serums for dry hair that I had used for A LIFETIME were things I did not need after all and were supposed to make it shiny, glossy and better. Better…hmm…

But they didn’t make me better. The things I added weighed my hair down and made it something that was not me, truly me. I was better…I felt better without the added stuff.

I tossed the conditioner.

I see now that Less is more. Less is more.

It hit me that this is true for my business as well…as a solopreneur online : mentoring women in voice and biz and profit… I am reminded that less is more.. less is more.

Bells and whistles, fancy sites, techno gadgetry…

most of which you do not need. It can take focus away from what is true and truly felt and seen.

I am reminded to Keep it clean, straightforward and simple for best results. Everyone wins. And I have my hair to thank.

YOU and the adventure you may be missing.

I am an air and fire woman – in planning motion even as I crave peace and stillness.

I need grounding practices usually every day.

Otherwise I miss my moments to BE. I miss my moments of REAL magic. I miss my moments of GENUINE opportunity.

So each morning I wake up. I drink my water with fresh lemon. I heat the kettle and brew organic coffee.

I pray. I meditate (most of the time anyway).

And I let it go … in trust and faith.

So then what???

I embrace the adventure of the day.

Do you know what I have noticed? The more faith and trust I have that I am being guided and looked after, the more I can really see life as an adventure to be cherished for the gift that it is. The more likely I am to tell people I love exactly how I feel about them. The more able I am to enjoy a glass of iced tea savoring the color. The more EVERYTHING.

See for yourself – set your plan in motion – do the work you have to do to back it up and let it go so you can ride the wave of adventure. I think you will see doors open, relationships heal and a new love for your awesome self  begin to BLOOM.
