For the Love AND Money: no need to choose!

For the Love AND Money: no need to choose!

Kits Beach Sunset - 400

Are you one of the passionate, heart-centered entrepreneurs, who is looking for new ways to run your business more profitably, but also feel in complete integrity with what you do?

I can totally relate. When I first started in my business almost two years ago, I was all about the love, and helping people find their passion in life, but had no idea how to translate that into a financial success.

What’s more, I had a notion that I had to choose between the love and the money. Well, today I’m here to tell you it’s not necessary to choose. In fact, one can fuel and compliment the other, hence the title: “For the Love AND Money: no need to choose!”.

I’ve trained as a business coach, because I wanted to transform my own relationship with money, first and foremost. It turns out I love the work so much that it’s become the main focus of my business now.

Today, I want to share 3 of my best tips on what to do to make your business a success, without losing your heart connection to what you do. It’s a great starting point AND, as we all know, there is so much more to it, as well. So, without further ado:

Tip #1:

Examine your own ‘money story’. We all have one, but we’re mostly not aware of how it is negatively affecting our relationship with money today, and the ways we present ourselves in the world, especially through our business. You will need coaching to help you move beyond your story, so my suggestion is to hire the best mentor you can afford. As my mentor says, “how you do money, is how you do everything”, and I find this to be very true.

Tip #2:

One truth that has become really apparent to me in the last couple of years is that money truly has power. By itself this power is neutral, and it can be used for good, as well as evil. This could be a huge motivating force for you, if making positive changes in the world is part of your ‘BIG WHY’, as it is mine. It becomes clear that it’s a lot easier to influence those changes if you have a substantial amount of money at your disposal. Not to mention that if your business doesn’t support you financially, then it’s just an expensive hobby, and sooner or later you’ll have to quit, and we don’t want that, do we?

Tip #3:

Realize and appreciate the true value of your work and services to others. Again, you’re going to need coaching on this, as it’s pretty much impossible to see our own blind spots. This seems like such a ‘no brainer’, but from my experience, is one of the biggest stumbling blocks for most entrepreneurs, especially women. Until you truly and deeply see the impact you’re creating in the world, you’ll probably always feel like a fraud, and always hesitate to charge what you’re worth. The result? You’re depriving others of the gift you’re here to give, and not creating the impact you’re here to create. It’s time to change this!

I’ve really enjoyed sharing these tips with you today, and there is plenty more where they came from lol. I love talking about this, as I’m all about empowering entrepreneurs, especially women entrepreneurs to translate ‘that thing they do’ into a successful business model. You love what you do, and you’re really good at it, right? Well, why not create the life you dream about, doing what you love, serving others, and making positive changes in the world, all at the same time?! Win, win, win…and win situation. After all, the very definition of business includes that fact that it has to make money, otherwise it’s just an expensive hobby, like I’ve already mentioned.

Alright, this is it for today. I’m wishing you a beautiful heart-felt and heart-filled day! I’d love to read your comments below.

With love and bliss,

How to run your life & business ‘the hummingbird style’?

“How to run your life &business ‘the hummingbird style‘?”



“the hummingbird spirit symbolizes the enjoyment of life and lightness of being…”

Have you ever come in close contact with a hummingbird? Well I have, recently, and it left me in awe of its beauty, admiration for its abilities, and sheer love for this amazing little creature.

I was never able to get a good picture of a hummingbird, as one would never sit still long enough, until now. I couldn’t stop thinking that it wasn’t a mere coincidence that it appeared like that in front of me, and allowed me to come close and take pictures.

I felt there was a message there for me, and I became curious. I started to read up on the hummingbird as a spirit animal, and found out some fascinating things.

The message was perfect for me, and I decided to share it with you here, because I think it’s so universal, and applies to everything, from running a business, to life in general.

AND it’s summer, perfect time to lighten up, and look at everything from a slightly different angle.

Here are 5 great and fun tips on how to run your life and business ‘the hummingbird style’!:

Hummingbird Tip #1: Use the hummingbird spirit to lift up negativity.

When you’re faced with a challenging situation, or are being pulled down by the negativity around you, bring up the joyful image of the hummingbird in your mind. Use it to transform your state of mind, lighten up the mood, and help you see the situation in a new and positive light. It’s pretty much impossible to visualize the hummingbird, and not feel lightness and joy!

Hummingbird Tip #2: You can accomplish great things, no matter how small you start.

Don’t be deceived by the small size of a hummingbird. They’re extremely resilient and strong, and can travel great distances tirelessly, despite (or maybe because of) their size. When you’re inspired by their spirit, you’ll be able to accomplish what seems impossible to most, while keeping it light and enjoyable.

Hummingbird Tip #3: Conserve your energy, when you need to.

Hummingbirds have the amazing ability to travel extreme distances tirelessly, but they also have the uncanny ability to go into a state of semi-hibernation, when they need to conserve their resources. Their body temperature lowers, and their metabolism slows down considerably. I’m not suggesting you go into hibernation, but going at anything full throttle all the time is exhausting. Take a break, go for a walk, sit in peace and silence for a while…the hummingbird style!

Hummingbird Tip #4: Cherish your sensitivity, but become invincible.

Hummingbird wisdom will challenge you to become very adaptable, and be quick to respond to any demand. Even though you might be a very sensitive person, it’ll challenge you to stand strong while being able to move quickly and fly high, whether it’s through your personal, business, or spiritual aspirations.

Hummingbird Tip #5: A reminder to enjoy yourself!

The hummingbird spirit is a great reminder to enjoy the simple life’s pleasures, no matter what. Its wisdom carries an invitation to take part in, and attract to you, life’s sweetness, like drinking the nectar of your own flower. It is also an invitation to express love more fully in your daily existence.

I hope you enjoyed the whimsical, light-hearted tone of this article. Right in the spirit of the hummingbird: to lift us up from the sometimes intense, and even heavy energy of running our own business, and life in general. Perhaps it is a reminder that we also belong to this natural rhythm of things, where everything is designed to effortlessly run its course.

With love and bliss,

spend money and have it too

“Can you spend your money, and have it too?”


Have you ever fantasized about having one of those magical bank accounts that automatically refills itself, whenever money is taken out of it? I certainly have.

Wouldn’t it be nice to be able to spend as much money as we need to, or want to, and never have to worry about our bank balances going down?

While this magical scenario might only be possible in our imagination, what I know to be true for sure, is the more comfortable and familiar we are with our money, and the more we believe in our ability to generate the income we want, the easier it is to not only refill that account, but make it grow.

So the question really is this: “when is spending money just spending, and when is it wise for me to invest in my growth and my business, and how to tell the difference?”

 Read my 5 tips below that will help you get more clarity on whether this is your time to invest in yourself and your future:

Tip #1:

If you’re facing a crossroads in your life, you’re not sure what choices to make, and how to move forward, this might be the perfect time to invest in a coach or a mentor. This could be anything from getting a divorce, and losing your job, to your kids moving out soon, and you wanting to reinvent yourself. It’s always wise to get help during such times.

Tip #2:

Getting the help you need sooner rather than later will save you a lot of time and money down the road, as well as a lot of frustration and heartache. You will get to the bottom of your problem, and start taking the right actions right away, instead of finding your way through trial and error.

Tip #3:

You know in your heart of hearts that the job you’ve been doing for the past x number of years just isn’t cutting it any more. You know deep inside that you have a passion and gifts that you want to share with others, and realize that NOW is the time to seriously consider turning this into a profitable business. You’re being called to step up, and step out, and you’d be wise to follow this call.

Tip #4:

Your intuition is screaming at you that this is the right time to make a significant change in your life, but you’re trying to ignore it, and you find yourself using the excuses of not having enough time or money, over and over again, to stop yourself from moving forward. Listen to your intuition, because if your time to act is now, the opportunities will not always present themselves in the future. Opportunities have expiration dates, too.

Tip #5: 

You’ve always been employed, and you secretly doubt your abilities to start and run your own business. The more you think about your potential shortcomings, the stronger your fear gets, and the longer you put it off, until it seems impossible to muster the courage to take that leap. The time to move forward is NOW, so acknowledge the fear, but don’t let it stop you.
