Last night someone said to me that they could not wait for today because they would be taking 2 weeks away from the office. This time of year I would also be looking forward to taking 2 weeks off over the Christmas holidays. I would bank my vacation days and eagerly look forward to 2 weeks of turning off my legal brain and having no work travel. I would usually “work” on Manifested Harmony business (like creating new classes), but I enjoyed that so it did not feel like work. What I was doing was taking a vacation from office drama and stressful work that was draining. I love my work to protect animals, but the peripheral office stress was what I needed a vacation from.
So what’s different this year? Well … I moved back home to Michigan for a less-stressed lifestyle; I walked away from office drama and that peripheral stress and now work from home; I don’t have to bank vacation days or have a year-long craving for 2 weeks away from the office because I can take a vacation and days off whenever I want.
How did I do it? I made the bold-big-leap-you-can-fly-and-be-your-own-boss decision earlier in the year. I uprooted everything, shook that proverbial snow globe and love where everything has settled. What I did was take control of my days, my work and my life. What I did was consciously work the Law of Attraction and act as if what I desired was actually happening (like telling people I was going to move about a year before I actually did). I truly believed it was happening, I talked about it, and then I started taking the steps and it all felt divinely guided. I also worked extensively with my essential oils to maintain faith and strength during the change (the Oola Infused7 oil kit was amazing).
Every day I decide when I want to work, who I want to work with, what I want to work on, and for how long. Mondays are no longer a dread day, there’s no TGIF because every day is TGIF, and I don’t hold my breath until I can take an extended vacation from “the office”.
So today, in particular, is very different than the past 20+ years because normally it would be “THE LAST FRIDAY BEFORE MY 2 WEEK VACATION!!!” Instead, today is yet another awesome day where I’m not living for a vacation or working for the weekend, but living each day fully.
My home and the world is my office, my work and who I hang out with are my choosing. It’s liberating, it’s awesome, it’s life changing. When you make the decision to pursue your passion work, your world changes.
Of course, you have to get comfortable with potentially making less money to start with (although it’s really smart to launch your passion biz while you still have another income), getting comfortable with change and relying on yourself for your financial stability. Too many people are frozen in fear in taking that step, but I can tell you from experience that there is nothing to fear. It’s invigorating and when you can block the nay-sayers you will learn so much about yourself and what you are capable of doing.
Most people have a hobby that they dream about turning into a business. They dream about being the Director of a business called My Life. They visualize what it would be like to take back their days and make a positive impact by sharing their gift(s) with the world. But most people either don’t know how to get started or they are too busy and too stressed to take the first step.
This is why I just created a new online class to help you launch your passion business. It was created for energy healers, essential oil distributors, new network marketing distributors, and wellness coaches; but the information can be translated to any small business venture.
So if this rings a bell in your head, the angels start singing, or your dog pushes your hand to click on the image below, do me a favor and check out the class. It’s coming up live on January 3rd …. Just in time to kick of 2016 and fulfill a New Year’s Intention! The class will also be recorded if you cannot make the live class or if you want to watch it later. I kept the information simple and used my experiences in incorporating Manifested Harmony in both Virginia and Michigan, working with social media, websites, newsletters, trademarks, and so much more. So I hope you will join me for this new class and make 2016 the year that you FINALLY turn your hobby into your passion biz!
