Happy Monday! WOOHOO! I am enjoying a new found freedom thanks to the AMAZING “Mom Grows A Business” conference on Friday. I was blessed to be able to go along with my ETTM friends which made it even more fun. Today, I am feeling like a young butterfly that has just emerged from her cocoon.
I have to admit, I wanted to go but I really didn’t understand how this kind of conference would help me – a direct sales consultant. I mean EVERYONE that I met either had their own business (solo-preneur) or were getting ready to open their own business. Here I was a Thirty One Director in the mix meeting amazing women but wondering how all of the available information would or could apply to my business.
Along comes the lunchtime round table discussion… I should have know it was going to be AWESOME when most of the lunch buffet catered to vegetarians. YEAH! Okay, with lunch done, the discussion began with Stephanie Dalfonzo and so she began to talk about the road blocks that are holding us back. Stephanie shared that on her drive to the conference, she was lead to change her format for the discussion group. I have heard these kind of talks before and they have helped for the MOMENT. I was lead to have her “work” with me. I was a little curious because the process she used with me was different then the other two people at the table.
Stephanie is a Master Intuitive Coach, a powerful navigator – like your own personal G.P.S. Her use of E.F.T. (Emotional Freedom Techniques), and N.L.P. (Neuro-Linguistics Programming) made me a little nervous. The difference this time – I was READY to overcome my ONE obstacle – NO CONFIDENCE! Okay, I am sure that some are surprised by this revelation but the truth is beneath this crazy bag lady is a woman who experiences no confidence on a regular basis. A simple 5 minute process changed EVERYTHING. I know that there are some that are skeptical but the truth is – I feel like YEARS of no confidence is GONE! It seemed funny to me that for the rest of the day, I smiled and felt relaxed even when I was walking up to new people and introducing myself. Everyone at the table, reminded me for the remainder of the day that I was “radiant”. WOW! I can’t remember anyone every saying that before to me. I can’t thank Stephanie enough for her life changing 5 minutes!
Not to worry, I will keep you posted on the long term outcome. I am approaching my business and my personal life with more confidence. I AM a GOOD Leader for my team. I AM a GOOD wife, mom and daughter. I AM an AWESOME Thirty One consultant who puts the needs of her customers and hostess above her sales. Let’s see how this new freedom effects some of my blogs.. not in a bad way but by looking at things in a different way.
Share your thoughts… Have a ThirtyOne-derful day!
