My mentor Heather Dominick is a Brilliance-Based Businesswoman of incredible talent and vision. She’s achieved her Unique Definition of Success by creating a powerful system based on her own approach to life and business. I’m delighted to introduce her and her reflections to you.
Briefly, what are the highlights of your career story?
When I started my first business as a Nutrition and Wellness Coach I built my business to full capacity in 9 months. Wahoo! Life was good; I hired my first virtual assistant and was free of credit card debt.
AND – I realized something important—my practice was filled with clients, I was working my butt off, and I still didn’t have very much money than I had as a New York City teacher. Then when client numbers dropped over the summer, I didn’t know what to do.
My credit card balances started creeping up. I felt desperate. Panicked. What was I doing wrong? I was caught between a rock and a hard place. I wasn’t willing to go back to teaching in the school system, so I made a commitment to learning everything about self-marketing and wealth building.
I took every course I could, read every book I could get my hands on, searched the Internet and went to see every speaker I could on the topic.
And I also upped my spiritual practice. Because I was terrified.
Trust me; I faced some major things about myself, and my relationship with money and the way I ran my business. More than once, I doubted myself and felt for sure I was falling. And that there wasn’t going to be anyone there to catch me.
So being a natural problem solver who believes in “K.I.S.S.” or “Keep It Simple, Sweetie” (it was my key to success as a high school drama teacher and still is), I made it my task to take everything I learned and put it into a system that worked for my business, my wealth, my spirituality, my wellness and my life. I wanted to create a process for myself that I could build up from, that was there to support me no matter what level of my business I was at and that I could replicate over and over again, so instead of feeling like I was riding a roller coaster, I could consistently feel calm and confident and as a result my business would be consistently profitable.
I wanted each step to be strong, supportable, structured, and adaptable when necessary and I wanted it to work FOR ME, EVERY TIME! I’m happy to say, I did it! Yippee!
I developed a system based on my philosophy of partnering an inner and outer approach to business – the same one I use today! Through this special coaching technique, which joins the energetical and practical, I re-filled my business, felt SO much better and was on my way.
As best as you currently understand it, what are you here to do? Who are you here to serve? What difference do you make for your clients?
The work we do at EnergyRICH® Coaching, Inc is deep transformational work – if you’ve tried everything else and have not succeeded, you will not fail here.
If you haven’t yet started, you are beginning in the exact right place.
I see you and INTO you. I read your Soul and then support you in setting up systems to monetize your gifts once and for all in a way that is such a match to you that you don’t even feel like you are marketing or selling. You are simply sharing your gifts and being generously rewarded in return.
This is not cookie-cutter coaching.
How do you define “success” for yourself?
I have increased my income every year I’ve been in business, bringing my company right to the squeaky clean edge of the million dollar mark for 2011, all because I’ve gotten clear about who I am, continue to listen to my inner guidance and know how to partner my Inner Self with strong outer simple, easy-to-implement marketing systems. That’s it.
Most importantly, I have a ton of time off from work to spend with my husband.
What changes have you made or experienced in your life and business that have enabled you to experience more ease?
I start every day connecting with Spirit and setting my energy for the day and also close my office on time every day, work out 5-7 days a week (and many other types of self-care that I’ve found to be a crucial, magical part of the SYSTEMS I implement to work for me in my business, instead of ME doing all the work in my business!) and I follow my intuition with confidence and have surrounded myself with an amazing team who support my EnergyRICH® business systems.
What would you love your next breakthrough to be?
Along with embracing the amazing upleveling I experienced in 2011, seeing to it that both my team and I honor my personal time for rest and growth so I can continue to uplevel the support I offer my clients. Then they, too, can step into being their Considerably Huge® selves.
What brings you joy?
Spending quality time with my husband (including weekend get-a-ways and special nights out). Giving my entire family a house-on-the-beach vacation of their dreams. Consistently donating a portion of my income to contribute to the strengthening of entrepreneur women in third world countries. Receiving consistent self-care with a personal trainer and working with high-level mentors, healers and mastermind colleagues.
Most importantly I feel alive and jazzed every day to be following my intuitive soul guidance so closely and BEing the life of my dreams. Sometimes I just openly weep with how blessed I feel to BE in my life.
What support do you have on the journey of your Brilliance-Based career?
From the moment I started my first business, I hired a coach, a mentor. I knew that I had the passion and the drive but I didn’t know how I was going to build my business – and especially all on my own. Since that very first day I decided to be an entrepreneur I’ve never been without a mentor or a mastermind team.
As a successful Brilliance-Based Businesswoman, what’s your best advice for other aspiring and active Brilliance-Based Businesswomen?
Gather supportive energy. Surround yourself with people (or at least one person) who truly want success for you, who are not threatened by your desire AND ability to be, as I like to call it – Considerably Huge®. You want people around you who push you to stretch, and to reach rather then to hold back. Choose to be surrounded by those who recognize that the bigger you are, the better the world is. They can support your dreams, and your energy, with confidence, care and belief.
