Don’t waste time, make money doing the right things

I hope you are having a great August and have enjoyed the summer so far. I had a really great summer. With attending one week-long traditional wedding. Yes, traditional weddings are looooong.

Here is a photograph of mine from the wedding with a friend, all dressed up.

I want to share with you how I plan my summer ahead so that I can have a lot of free time to enjoy, play, and have fun while spending quality time with my children. I plan my summer throughout the year by putting funds aside so that I can take most of the summer off. I also delegate a lot of my work and focus only on coaching my high end platinum clients, an actual high income generating activity for me.

I also have products and other homework I am able to give to my clients during summer months so that they are busy developing the new set of skills in their business while I enjoy my summer with my kids. We are all happy about it. There is always a way to work your business around your life priorities so that you can enjoy abundance of time and money to do what is important.

Here are a few tips on creating an abundant lifestyle while doing what you love and sharing your gifts and talents through your life work. These tips will also help you ease into the busy fall season by taking control of your time and energy by focusing on the right things.

Say ‘Yes’ To What’s Coming by saying ‘No,’ first

Two things women entrepreneurs struggle with is prioritizing their time and focusing on income producing activities. To make the most of your time, it is important to channel your energy in a way that naturally allows you to say ‘yes’ to what is important in your business. If you don’t consciously become aware of your time, then outside distractions will bog down your energy. It becomes difficult to say ‘no’ to what you don’t want, and ‘yes’ to what you do want.

Take Control of Your Day

If you don’t have an assistant to respond to your emails, then don’t turn on your computer first thing in the morning. Plan a 30 minute mini retreat where you can determine your most important projects for the day. Do this outside of your office. That way you can come to your office knowing the most important tasks (that hold the most energy for you). This makes it easier to resist the pull of emails and outside demands. Your mini retreat allows you to create laser focused priorities so that you can easily say ‘no’ to what you don’t want, and ‘yes’ to what you do want. 

Avoid Shiny Object Syndrome

It can be very tempting to subscribe to the free emails coming from the successful people in your industry, and then get carried away reading them. Unless you need their specific advice based on where you are in your business, unsubscribe. Check in with yourself intuitively by going inwards to see who you need to follow, and then surrender to getting the full benefit of their knowledge. Do not waste your time with ‘shiny objects’. Instead focus on the income generating activities for your particular business and the stage you are in your business. Your time will be productive and you will find ease in everything you do if you are not focused outwards.

Focus On Joy

Do the activities that bring you joy and delegate the ones you don’t like to your team. Having free time will allow you to tap into your creativity. If you are at the beginning stages of your business, and feel that you cannot afford to hire help, start small with just a few hours a month and build your way up. The most important thing is to get used to the experience of receiving help and letting go.

Remember, success is not about adding on, it is about letting go of what you don’t want so that you can say ‘yes’ to what you do want.

Zahra Efan supports holistic female business owners’ breakthrough six figures in their businesses. After having experienced a lot of success in her business including a TV interview, writing for many well known magazines and being interviewed by well known names, Zahra went through a period of burn out and overwhelm. She decided to completely unplug from her business and took time to listen to her life and her business. As difficult as it was, she said no to many opportunities during that time. As a result, after taking two months off, she returned to work and with just one interview that her soul said “yes” to. She made 10k within two days, and since then she continues to increase her income every month. Zahra teaches holistic business owners how to say “yes” to selective opportunities so that they can breakthrough the next income level without working really hard.

V.I.P Day

I had an awesome V.I.P Day with my client at the Sheraton Guildford in Surrey.

When doing internal work with my clients to help them create external results, I am continually amazed at the outcomes. By clearing internal obstacles, these clients allow the path to success to become simpler and quicker.

I believe that we are all born with this potential to bring forth who we are. Somewhere along the way in our lives, however, we adapt to the conditioning of those around us and start hiding our true identity. The real magic is in exploring and embracing who we are when we first came to this planet so that we can get in touch with our natural gifts and share them with others to make a difference in the world. When we share our essence in our marketing, clients are naturally drawn to us.

Here is a photo of my client Rosalyn and I after the retreat. Rosalyn is holding her money archetype card which is ‘Love’.

Rosalyn

Rosalyn demonstrated the courage to access her magic. She discovered that what she needed the most was ‘love’, and so she worked on clearing energy that was standing in her way of what she wanted. And in so doing, she also let go of the contracts that no longer served her. Although the intention of these contracts was love for others, Rosalyn realized she needed to have self-love as her first goal. This allowed her to give herself the permission to take care of the self first and foremost. Now, with new decisions and contracts formed to make herself a first priority in her life, she is on her way to creating more income.

Rosalyn also discovered that when we can let go of the emotional charge around debts, it becomes easier to clear the physical manifestation of it. When clearing her family’s money legacy and creating one of her own, Rosalyn formulated particular affirmations that will help her move forward in her business. She has written them on a large sheet of paper and posted them in her office to serve as a visual reminder of what is her new focus. We all have a unique, family money blueprint; therefore, we all have individual affirmations specifically designed for our own clearing process. Here is a poster of Rosalyn’s affirmations.

Rosalyn signed up for a four month platinum program with me and I am really excited to support her in creating the business of her dreams. I am really proud of her courage to be willing to do the work she is doing.

If you would like to apply for a V.I.P. day, please take up this great opportunity. I only have one spot available for the month of April. To apply for a discovery session to explore your relationship with money and experience a breakthrough with it so that you can attract more clients and more income with ease, click here.

The complimentary session is meant to be a means to explore if you would like to work together in a V.I.P day setting. It is recommended, therefore, that you only request a session if you currently have the resources or desire to invest in your business.

What is a V.I.P. Day?

Just like any other in-person retreat experience, we create ‘4 hours of transformational money experience,’ over the phone or in-person if you live locally. Some of my clients also travel to Vancouver for a V.I.P Day with me. By the end of our 4 hour one-on-one time, you will walk away with new tools, strategies and a-ha’s to increase your income right away. You will also get all the templates and handouts that we use during the exercises.

It is truly a transformational experience to go through the depths of your relationship with money. Read the following articles that I wrote for more information on relationships with money.

Do you love your clients?

When you are in business doing what you love, it is natural to fall in love with your clients and their projects. When they put their projects out into the world and make a difference, you cannot help but feel proud of them. Their projects remind you of your contribution, the difference you are making and the important work you are doing in the world.

By the time they hire you they are ready for change. You don’t get attached to their success or rescue them into achieving. You believe in their ability and personal power to make a change in their lives. You hold the vision, believe in them, support them with your insights while they create their own ‘ah… ha!’ moments. You work in synchronicity and miracles unfold.

When they are excited about their work, about your relationship with them, they become a very important part of your life and that’s when falling in love with a client happens.

I had an experience of client love recently that I cannot help but share with you. Zahra August blog2My beautiful client, who is making a movie on forgiveness, surprised me with wonderful gifts in the mail. Something for the whole family! I marveled at her thoughtfulness and the choice of her gifts couldn’t have been better. She sent a book by Dr. Wayne Dyer for my 9 year old, an Eckhart Tolle book for me and healing stones that say forgiveness, gratitude, and laugh on them. And a beautiful card written with so much love.

I am in gratitude and deeply touched.

I would encourage you to put your gifts out into the world and not hold back. You don’t know whose life you may touch, who in return will touch your own life.

Zahra-August-Blog1

Keep the flow of giving and receiving going in the world of exchanging goods and services. Money is just an energy that defines the value and commitment of the contract we get into when we serve our clients. Don’t get too attached to it, yet not so distracted that you compromise your value. Keep abundance in mind when making a difference and you will find an abundance of ways to help others, maybe through your newsletters or products and packages.

Who do you need to serve? What is holding you back? Do you need to partner with someone to support you?  I would encourage you to express your God given glory so that you too can make a difference in someone’s life.  Receive love for yourself in return for your work and give it back too!
