Starting a Soul Business in a Super Affordable Way

Starting a Soul Business in a Super Affordable Way

Ok, so you want a Soul Business but the only thing holding you back is the idea that you have to spend a lot of cash?

You are not alone as I was feeling like this to when I started out. Then one day I realised I didn’t need much upfront investment. There are so many super affordable ways to start your soul business.

At first you may not believe me, but it is really easy to start a business as there is an ABUNDANCE of FREE products, resources and tutorials available online to get you going.

Before I started my business, I was waiting around for a huge cash injection to magically manifest in my life so I could do all the things I had in mind. However I started to come to the realisation that I don’t need to start with my A-Game – I just need to start. Once I took that pressure off, I was airborne.

I would like to share the basic steps with you on getting started in a super affordable way.

1. Get Clear on your idea – find your passion

Would you believe that getting clear on your idea is the first major hurdle to overcome? Many people have created a business based on what they think they SHOULD do rather than what they WANT to do. If you can however get clear at the beginning about your passion, what you can offer and how to make money from it, then you are all systems go. Spend more time in this area.

Feel free to download my Manifesting Big Ideas Cheat Sheet to come up with your perfect idea.

2. Business Name and Legal Setup

Come up with a really great business name and register it. Make sure you check if the domain name is available first and if it is, go for it.

3. Start a Website, social media and Blog

Start a website and blog. There are numerous free platforms available with really easy to use templates.  I started with wordpress and still use it today. Make sure people can subscribe to your email. 

Affordable Platforms include:

  • WordPress – simply pay for hosting and maybe a them upgrade
  • Hootsuite FREE Version – Schedule your social media posts to free up your time
  • Mailchimp FREE Version – Collect emails through your website and send regularly as your database grows
  • Canva FREE version – create graphic and workbooks
  • Participate in free online courses and read articles on creating content.
  • Join entrepreneur membership groups on facebook for support, ideas and inspiration

4. Create a Product or Service

Now that you have started on your website – add your product or service. Think of ways to monetize your passion and offer it on your website. 

5. Promote through your existing networks

Start developing your audience through your existing one. Email friends and family, encourage them to sign up through your facebook page and get them reading your blog. It all starts here, everyone starts here. 

6. Let go of being perfect

You don’t need to be perfect, just start. You can refine your copy, your product, your offer as you go along. Just starting is the hardest part.  Once you are up and running, you can polish your offer, your material or develop your skills further.

Just by starting your business, you have developed your confidence that you can do this and you are already on your way. It places you right in the energy of creation and you will get your inspiration and synchronicities as evidence that you are on the right path.

Know that you will make it and you just need a small step toward it every time.

2020 Can Be Your Best Year Yet and an Amazing Start to the Decade

2020 Can Be Your Best Year Yet and an Amazing Start to the Decade

It is our choice to make 2020 the best year yet and the best decade to come and I couldn’t think of a better intention. There are going to be a load of changes coming in the next 10 years and a split in realities so it is up to us to take the reins, set the tone and create ripples of change in our favour so we can choose the path that is more aligned to our human spirit.

My intention in 2020 is to step into powerful creative and manifesting energy to bring some new lifestyle projects and dreams into fruition including welcoming in a new little life into the world in the first quarter, which our family is very excited about.

I am certainly in the festive mood and 2020 mood so I would love to share some easy ways that you too can use to kick start the year ahead on a positive note:

1. Reflect on 2019 to clear the way for a positive year ahead

These questions will help you reflect on what worked and what didn’t in 2019 and how to do things differently next year.

When you think back to the start of 2019, did you manage to achieve the goals or projects you had set for yourself? Did you take a step toward them? If not what stopped you?

Who can you thank for supporting you or inspiring you throughout the year? Giving thanks to these people either in person or in spirit will generate even more positive energy for the coming year.

What issues and challenges came up throughout the year? Now is a good time to work on clearing these issues so they don’t come up again next year. You can do this through a simple clearing technique such as EFT (Emotional Freedom Technique). Clear, clear, clear and then you are ready to go into a new decade with a fresh perspective.  As a recommendation check out Carol Look for all things EFT as I really like her work.

2. Set the feeling for 2020?

What do you intend your predominant feeling to be throughout 2020? Place this where you will see it every day.

3. Set your top Goals for 2020.

Set the intention that you will achieve 5 of your top goals in 2020 including at least one dedicated to your ideal lifestyle. Place the goals where you will see them every day. Commit to taking action steps towards these such as simply starting the project, learning a new skill, taking a course, changing a habit, changing your mindset and so on.

4. Write a diary in 2020 to highlight your journey towards manifesting these goals

You never know, one day you may be able to turn this into a book or a series of articles so you can inspire others in their journey. At the very least you are recoding evidence that you CAN achieve your desires.

5. Invest in creativity

Find your special creative pursuit. The more creative you are, the more love you generate from what you are doing and then more heart centred creative ideas come in. It is a wonderful cycle of giving and momentum towards positivity and happiness.

This is the decade that everything can change and will change in varying directions, you just need to decide whether you are an observer or an active participant and driver towards the change you want to see. My best it, if you are reading this, then your spirit is giving you the prompt to get ready, set and go towards wonderful year.

Creating Without Love Leads to a Reality Deprived of Love

Creating Without Love Leads to a Reality Deprived of Love

Most people don’t realise how powerful love can be in manifesting. It is the essential element to make your desire come to fruition in the fastest and most graceful way possible.

Love is our life force, it lifts us up to the highest planes of virtue and gives us our meaning in life. There is nothing quite like the ride of love.

When we create with love in our hearts, we can change the world as we are aligned to the human spirit. That love is far more powerful than any other process in creation. Creating without love can only lead to a reality that is deprived of love. This reality will be far less satisfying and much more limiting than one directed by love, a reality from decades of deprivation that we are seeing now.

We see the results of those deprived of love every day in positions of power, politics and leading destructive movements who feed on fear and the suppression of others. Personal attacking and creating chaos is not loving and it is not aligned to a soul’s ambition.

Happy people who feel love and give love freely, never intentionally harm anyone or anything. When someone is in the energy of love and happiness, they add value and take actions that uplift others and the world.

Imagine how different our own reality would be if we focus on the energy of love in manifesting our desires. Our goal would be very simple – to openly give and receive love by opening our heart to the beauty of everyone and everything in our world.

You can easily activate your heart to love by:

  • Spending time every day thinking about the things you love
  • Getting creative and investing your time in making things that you love
  • Offering kindness to all

Spend more time in the energy of love and positivity then in the energy of negativity, then you will reach the point where you are in a state of positive attraction. That means if you spend 51% or more of your day in positive energy- you are attracting and manifesting your desires, ones that will change your world for the better as they are immersed in your feelings of love.

My love to you all.
