It was the beginning of 2018 and I was DONE with having a full time job and doing my coaching business only when I had enough energy to do it. ENOUGH WAS ENOUGH.
I had enough of making money one month and then having two months of nothing. I had enough of watching everyone else’s livestream looking for that “magic” tip they could say to make my business thrive. I had enough of investing in the wrong programs and buying courses that I didn’t implement because they didn’t feel authentic. I had enough of not making the IMPACT I was certain I could make. I had enough of watching everyone else create their dream life while I was becoming jaded and cynical knowing that it was possible but not knowing how to make it happen for me.
I was scrolling through Facebook one evening when an Instagram notification popped up and as I tapped it to go see it, I had this epiphany. I said to myself..
How much time do I spend doing this with NO RESULTS?
Those other coaches are LIVING abundantly, why can’t I?
How is she making more money in a month than I have ever in a year?
How can I fulfill my calling and impact the world?
How are they doing it? I need to know!
Well, I’ll can tell you one certain. When you ASK questions YOU RECEIVE answers. “Ask and you shall receive”. I didn’t even mean to ask the questions. I was just so frustrated! However, when I asked the answers came IMMEDIATELY. (tip: ask better questions).
That very moment I knew I couldn’t ignore those answers. They were actually ringing in the ears of my soul. I knew I was done making just enough money to get by and decided to do whatever I had to do to step boldly into my calling so I could change my life and teach others to do the same. A thought kept coming up and it was,
“Become the transformation your clients are seeking. You’ve already transformed so much Linda. You left a toxic marriage, got your degree, stopped attracting and keeping abusive men… Now, transform your finances and your relationship with money”.
And with my knees knocking I invested in myself and my business. I started working with high level coaches who embodied that life I wanted and within 3 weeks I made my initial investment back plus $4K over. Without writing a book on this page, let me share 2 powerful things that happened that removed the limitations from my thinking.
I was scared to take the LAST MONEY I HAD and invest but with so much on the line, I had NO CHOICE but to work past my fears and MAKE IT HAPPEN! So, I did!
I started to attract clients to my discovery calls but now I was armed with the proper blueprint for discovery calls. Before, I was coaching for free on my discovery calls so I wasn’t signing up clients, (they could just talk to me and get answers). Well, during one of my discovery calls I spoke to a woman who clearly was NOT a good fit for me. But she wanted to sign up with me anyway. Yet, I knew it just wasn’t going to work. I actually told her I would recommend her to someone else and released her. I was totally OKAY letting go $3K. In the past, I’m sure I would have signed her up. I needed the money but this time I didn’t and doing that was the highest way to serve her and honor myself. It was HUGE foe me to be able to do that.
And now here I am living my dreams!! I’m a keynote speaker and I’ve delivered a powerful and emotional TEDx Talk titled Change The Destination. I’ve blogged for The Huffington Post and now Thrive Global. I’m a sought after translator, (I speak Spanish) and I translate at the largest church in the nation in Houston,TX, Joel Osteen’s Lakewood Church. I have written 2 books and countless e-books. My podcast is on iTunes, Soundcloud, iHeart Radio, Google Play, Stitcher and Spreaker. I have created multiple courses and started the #dontbebasic movement.
My clients have:
Left abusive relationships
Learned to love themselves and build self confidence
Gone from idea to a published book in 30 days
Landed a Tedx talk
Started their coaching business
Landed speaking engagements
Been guests on radio shows
And much more
And now, it’s YOUR TIME to live out your dreams and be great.
You are being called to step into your purpose.
You are being called to accept your power.
You are being called to break generational cycles.
And this an invitation to become the Queen you were created to be in life and in business.
