When I first begin talking with people who are thinking about working with me, I get many questions on how the business-building process works. They also ask about where and when they should begin.
In this frequently asked questions, I answer some of the “inquiring mind” questions you may be having, right about now.
What Do You Really Do?
You ask: What Do You Really Do?
My vision is to help you create magic by teaching you how to efficient and productive.
I use my six-step system to teach you how to get traction, today and always. With me. And without me.
Listen, my method is not for everyone. Some people consider me the cat’s meow yet others don’t care to work with me. Why? Because our styles don’t mesh. Because they think I am too woo-woo or because I understand techno-babble (is that’s like Harry Potter understanding Parseltongue?).
Who knows where you might fall in that spectrum?
Maybe you like my energy.
Perhaps you resonate with the message you’ve seen on this site.
Perhaps you recognize yourself in the descriptions of the people I do my best work with.
Or, perhaps you’re curious to find out if I can really help you fix what’s currently not working in your business.
But, you will never know until you explore further, isn’t that right?
How Am I Different?
These are the types of things I do:
- I teach you how to do stuff for yourself.
- And, I coach you.
- I’ll there to cheer you on as you learn to be efficient and productive in a way that suits you.
- I am your partner and guide during the length of our work together.
Hopefully, we will become friends in the process.
You are the Chief Executive Officer (CEO) of your company. You work “on” your business, creating a grand and passionate vision for your company. And, a plan to make that vision real.
My job is to teach you how and to lend a hand in implementing your strategy, if you need it and wish me to.
I work exclusively with heart-centered owners, like you. My passion is to help you create a living vision, a sustainable strategy and a solid foundation for your business.
That’s what I do.
What makes me different is that I don’t tell you that the Law of Attraction (LOA) is all you need, like many other spiritual gurus do. That’s just a lot of bunk. Nothing will come to you without you taking action.
To make your business shine the way it’s meant to, you must work hard to implement your vision. Then, you have to let go of the outcome.
That’s when LOA will operate.
Sitting back, waiting prevents you from making a greater impact.
Lilia, Who Are Your Clients, Exactly?
Well, I work exclusively with heart-centered women business owners, like coaches, healers, shamans, consultants, et al.
Are you in any of those categories?
You may be gearing up to start-up. Perhaps, You are an established business needing some help to be more effective and productive.
I specialize in bridging the gap … the gap between you using your gifts and running a business.
All my clients are fiercely passionate about what they do. They have a conviction that the work they love makes a difference. Their purpose inspires their life. And, all have the gumption to be a successful business owner.
I guide start-ups through the treacherous waters of starting a business. From a strategic vision to action planning. And, I guide you through all the things that will give you a smooth start.
If you’ve been in business for a while, we usually work on two things:
- Figure out why their business will not scale and fix that.
- Or, rediscover the heart of their business and we pour a solid foundation for the business.
How I Work with Clients?
I become a good, trusted business partner, your Chief Support Officer (CSO), so to speak, while we work together.
Need to know more?
I inquire to find out what you need to implement. I teach you tools to become efficiently productive.
I share my opinion and tell you what you need to hear, not necessarily what you want to hear.
Through it all, I have your back, staying by your side through every step.
If you resist, I call you out. If you want to play safe, I coach you through your fear, your struggles, and your obstacles. I champion you, your dream, and celebrate each win with you.
My time with Spirit is precious to me, like it is for you. My goal is to strive for excellence in what I do, not taking myself too seriously.
Your business is your business, your baby. It is my privilege to be your partner, a steward in allowing the baby to grow from toddler to an an adult.
Walking in the woods, listening to the hawks nesting there (Hawk is one of my animal guides) inspires me. My spiritual practice helps me come to you with a fresh mind. I like to celebrate your life, your achievements, and honor your challenges as well.
Who Is Not a Good Fit for You?
People like these are not a good fit:
- Those who don’t want to get clear on their vision or the heart of their business.
- Naysayers, excuse-makers, those who are habitual victims.
- Someone married to her woes, hesitant to take action
- Someone who doesn’t feel comfortable growing
My best clients are approachable, clear, persistent, open, honest, motivated, decisive, passionate.
In other words, they are ready, willing, and want to learn. They have a sense of humor! Levity cures many ills!
I am a decision maker by nature. I work hard on my clients’ business. And I expect you to work hard as well.
You are the CEO. I am your steward. My role is to support you making your vision real.
Build an Ecosystem for Your Business
Having a business that works for you is the goal of all business owners.
Your business is a mixture of your vision, passion and knowledge. It is a balance between people and systems.
I’ve developed an approach to building your business that produces inventive actions and systems that tie it all together. Thus your business can grow without consuming your life.
My system is a way to build your business so that it delivers sustainable profits, personal freedom, a superior quality of life all while making an impact on others that transforms their lives.
Each step is designed to meet the specific needs of each aspect of your business.
What Is the Investment I Need to Make?
When I was considering opening my own business, I thought:
If I can distill the what I’ve learned, and offer the most valuable and essential aspects of the work for a reasonable cost, I could bring this to heart-centered entrepreneurs and start-ups.
That is exactly what I have done. I’ve developed flexible programs that can be offered in modules. This way, there is help that fits for almost every budget.
You begin, see results early, and continue your business-building work.
You are instantly in motion toward your goals. In a matter of weeks, you begin seeing results, getting clarity on where you’re going.
And, you can always work through portions of the system as do-it-yourself programs.
There will be a large investment of your time. You have to be willing to spend the time and effort, otherwise, it is worthless to start, don’t you think?
If you’d like to learn more about the programs, including cost, click on the big yellow button below to schedule your very own strategy session with me.
How Do Clients Pay for Your Services?
Princess Mia accepted chickens from her loyal subjects in Princess Diaries 2. Unfortunately, I do not.
I structured payment my programs as follows:
Clients who sign up and pay in full, receive a discounted bundle price. They have a choice to select individual modules when offered.
I offer payment plans as well, for those clients that need to space out their investment.
Payments are made by most major credit cards. I use Stripe as the payment processor of choice.
What if I Need Results in a Rush?
There is no magic wand I can waive and make it all better in the blink of an eye!
Business strategy, identity, positioning and messaging are the architectural foundation for the business you build. Like building a house, it does take time to do it correctly.
It is not something you take shortcuts with, or rush. If you want the business to be sustainable, you need to design it well.
We can work on your most pressing needs first. You will see results in those areas relatively quickly. But, I will not promise you instant results, because I would be lying.
