What My Business Taught Me About Healing

I was recently interviewed for Go Solo about being an entrepreneur and some of the challenges that business owners face: https://gosolo.subkit.com/neuro-optimization/

I don’t often share this side of my journey and yet, it has a lot to do with healing.


Because life is about healing. We come into the world whole and complete — somewhere along the way, we forget.

We got conditioned by our parents and caregivers at a young age. We learn to be fearful, we are told our dreams aren’t practical and we stopped playing.

Healing is about reconnecting and remembering who we really are.

Here are 5 things I learned about healing through my business:

1. Growth is not linear.

Healing from chronic, long-term illness or starting a business is like being on a roller coaster. There are ups, downs, and upside downs. Some days you feel like you’ve taken 3 steps forward and others, you fall 2 steps back.

The important thing is to keep faith that your body has the ability to heal and focus on your vision.

2.  It can be lonely.

Your current friends and family probably won’t understand what you are going through unless they have been there themselves.

It is important to surround yourself with mentors, coaches, and people who will cheer you on or pick you up along the way.

3. Celebrate your small wins.

If you have been in bed every day for months and are finally able to get up, celebrate it. It’s huge!

If you have not been sweating and then are able to detox, celebrate that as well.

If you had an “ah-ha” moment and shifted the way you thought about something, send me an email to tell me so we can celebrate together.

4. Seek help when needed.

It’s great to try to do something on your own. However, you need to know when it’s time to get guidance on your next steps.

5. Trust inner guidance.

You know your body best. Trust your gut instincts. If something doesn’t feel right for you and your body, it might not be for you.
