Has anyone ever told you, “You can’t have it all”?

If so, I’m here to tell you they are wrong.

But having it all starts with defining success on your own terms.

When I am working with clients, one of the first things we do is define:

  • What success looks like

  • What their life priorities are

  • What their values are

  • What legacy do they want to leave behind

Without this guidance, how can we ever make the right decisions? The answer is you can’t.

You must build your compass to understand what true north looks like for you.

And as a holistic business coach, I am obsessed with building a compass that supports all of you… This means your health, life, and business.

We can’t build success piecemeal. We must be intentional and strategic about what we commit to.

So let’s start by defining holistic success.

What is Holistic Business Success?

Holistic simply means we look at the whole person.

And when we look at a whole and healthy individual, this includes three core areas:

  • Health

  • Clarity

  • Business

Without a solid foundation of health, we don’t have the energy we need to do what we want. When we are in pain, we can’t begin to get clear on what we want.

It all starts with health… We must have a solid foundation.

This means healthy foods, movement, sleep, mental wellbeing, self-care and much more. Building a healthy foundation with tools and strategies that work for you is key.

That’s why I wrote my first book about health. To provide a trail map for anyone who wants to get healthy or optimize their health.

Inspiration Contagion, Health Secrets for Raving Success allows you to choose your own journey and start wherever you want. You can focus on sleep, self-care, what you eat, or learn how to manage chronic pain.

Anytime we serve others, we must meet them where they are. This means providing them with the best path forward for where they are today.

I want to make health easy and accessible to anyone.

This is also why I work with holistic healers and health providers so that we can have a greater impact and reach more people.

Once we have a solid health foundation, we focus on clarity…

Clarity means we understand who we are. We know what we want. We have a clear picture of our life priorities and goals. We know what our values are and how we show up when we step into them.

We can’t get clear when we are unhealthy or in pain.

But when we are, clarity is an invitation for us to visualize exactly what we want to build in this lifetime.

Start by sitting in stillness. Clear your mind. Tune into your body. Get quiet.

Then visualize what you want in your life. What’s important to you?

Visualize what you want in your career or business. Who do you want to serve? And how will you help them?

Get curious about your values. What four or five core values define you? And how do you show up in life when you are tuned into your core values?

Are you living your life aligned with your values and priorities?

And most importantly, what is the legacy you wish to leave behind? What do you want to be remembered for?

When we have clarity in all aspects of life, we make better decisions.

We know what to say yes to. What to say no to. Life is very simple when we are clear.

And yet, so many of us aren’t clear. So many don’t even know where to start.

Take the time. Reflect and get clear. Define success on your own terms.

You’re worth it.

Once you have clarity, that brings us to business.

You can’t build a successful, thriving business that’s aligned with who you are without clarity.

So many clients I work with are stuck because they are building something that’s not aligned.

They have defined success in someone else’s terms. They are stuck because they don’t know what they really want or need.

When we build our business based on our values, priorities, and the legacy we are after, everything is much clear.

It’s easy to make decisions. You lead from a place of confidence. You hold a clear vision that you can easily describe to your employees, investors, and potential clients.

Holistic Success means you:

  • Have a solid foundation of health and vitality

  • Are clear on how you define success, the legacy you wish to leave behind

  • Understand your values and how you show up

  • Are building a business that’s aligned with your life priorities

  • Make decisions based on what will get you closer to the legacy you are building

  • Have a clear vision of your future Are You Holistically Set Up For Success?

Wonder where you fall on the success spectrum?

That’s why I built the Holistic Business Success Assessment.

So you can discover where you fall.

In the assessment, you will be asked questions about your health, clarity and business.

It will only take you 4 minutes as you answer 20 quick-fire questions.

You will discover your greatest areas of improvement to:

  • BOOST your health

  • MAXIMIZE energy and efficiencies

  • INCREASE your business impact

  • RETAIN customers

  • ATTRACT ideal clients

Get crystal clear on where your weaknesses lie…so you can maximize your impact today.

Understand where the gaps and blindspots are…build your roadmap to success.

Without this, you don't know what you don’t know.

When you have a clear, holistic trail map, you now know exactly what action you need to take next…to accelerate your income and impact!

Take action that matches the size of your dreams.

You deserve to build your unstoppable, profitable business today…with an equally thriving personal life.
