Intuition is about following your gut, of course. And guess what? Humans are designed to be intuitive. Yes, every single one of us has the capability to develop and trust our intuitive side.

Intuition is the natural YIN to the YANG of your logical mind.

You know, the one that says, “I need to know XYZ before I can start,” or “I have GOT TO get ABC done NOW,” and even “I must define the how, what, where, when and why of my business before DEF.

Stressful!!! But also necessary.

The solution? Allow your intuition to start working its way into your business and watch the stress and anxiety feel more balanced.

Your intuition is always what determines how you FEEL and aligning your efforts to it will determine how you make others FEEL about your company. And FEELINGS are the secret ingredient to following your intuition.

Many of you reading this are already on your entrepreneur path.

Something inside of you said: START THIS BUSINESS. And you did.

If you take yourself back to that moment, it usually can only be defined as a clear KNOWING you had to do this. You weren’t sure if it would fail or succeed. And whether you made a detailed business plan before you started or got excited and just went for it, you experienced a moment of KNOWING you were going to start the business. Which means you’ve already used your intuition.

You’ve answered a calling.

More and more people are becoming comfortable discussing and recognizing that there’s a strength to this untapped resource within themselves. A desire to create their own life experiences.  This awareness represents not only version 2.0 of the successful businesswoman of the world, but also our clientele and customer bases.

There is going to be more and more demand and need for you to trust that inner voice when it comes to moving forward in your business success. Why? It ALIGNS you TO INTEGRITY. You begin the process of feeling your way to integrity.

People’s BS metres are pretty high these days.  Manipulative and fear-based advertising is on the way out. Triggering emotions in people may draw them in initially, but, as our clientele starts trusting their gut more, they are willing to look deeper into the businesses they are supporting. I can’t tell you the number of times I’ve been asked:

  • Is it really local?
  • Who owns the company?
  • What’s their mission?
  • How are the employees treated
  • Where do they give back?

This next generation of clientele isn’t only raising the expectation of integrity in business, but they’re demanding an alignment to integrity.  If you started your business with a strong core belief your products and services help others, and this is what you lead with, you can only be on a path to success.

Allow yourself to trust in the service your business offers.

In those moments of doubt, fear, rejection and hitting dead ends, it’s this connection within, this initial ‘gut instinct’ that will keep you growing through the struggles. With strong intuition comes the most important part of success….You TRUST your path.

Overwhelmed by the transition to entrepreneurship?

I’ve been there. When I left the corporate and small business worlds to start my own business, I didn’t know what I was in for. I saw other women living lives that I wanted to be mine, and wondered, “How are they doing it?” Knowing something had to give, I totally changed the way I’m running and building my business.

As a mother, blogger, mentor, speaker and business owner, I am used to balancing the demands of many roles. It is hard to “do it all,” and I have learned how to adjust to those expectations. Stick with me and you’ll be diving into your business with fresh eyes and a growth-centered mindset faster than you ever imagined!

It all came to a head in the Fall of 2015. With my daughter’s autism diagnosis and my postpartum depression following my son’s birth, my Spring/Summer that year had been pretty rough. I was feeling pretty kicked around — to say the least. As I was crawling out of the dark and twisty places life had cornered me in that year, I knew that everything had changed.

For many reasons, I couldn’t go back to my corporate life. One of the biggest reasons was that my perspective on how I was going to live my life had changed. A shift had happened. My time away from my children was going to be spent doing things that I was passionate about. Doing things that got me pumped about life. In May of 2016, I went out on my own and started my business. It was great. I was finally doing things that had me pumped about my time away from my kids. I had the flexibility to spend more time with them. At the end of the day, I had the energy to work in my household and my marriage.

But, while I was living my passion and excited about my life again, it wasn’t all sunshine and roses. Previously, I was a teacher, a sales professional, marketing leader and client services manager. By setting clear objectives, I succeeded in each role, even though they were in different industries.

But being an entrepreneur was a whole new world. I felt the loneliness. I had self-doubt. I didn’t know where to start…and I wasn’t the only one in this boat.

Whether I’m out speaking to a room full of female entrepreneurs or leading a workshop, one of the things that I hear over and over again from these amazing women is how great it is to be out from behind their desks and surrounded by a group of like-minded women. And as our conversation continues, it becomes clear that they are looking for a tribe of women that they can connect and collaborate with regularly in an environment that is welcoming, encouraging and safe enough to let their walls down and share. I needed a community like this too. One that encourages fellow members as they conquer fears, overcome obstacles and achieve their dreams. A tribe that leaves me with a new comfort level and the confidence I’m craving to expand my growth and limits — both personally and professionally.

And most importantly, I wanted a place that would offer me more than inspiration. One that would give me the actionable advice, education and mentorship, support and accountability that we all need.

And from these conversations and my own needs, Fempire Builders was born.

You see, it’s not just me. And it’s not just you. We are not alone. And when we come together, it’s a powerful thing. With the Fempire Builders community supporting me and holding me accountable, I have experienced the business growth that previously I had only dreamed about.

Just as it has been for other Fempire Builders, it will be the same for you, too. Wait and see!
