I was an elementary teacher for eight years before I felt prompted to resign my position and become an entrepreneur. Actually, the promptings came a year earlier to stop teaching and work from home, but none of it made sense. I had barely started my career. I earned my bachelors and master’s degrees after my children were all born, and started teaching school when my youngest was in second grade. I was able to teach her in class. What a wonderful opportunity. I loved my job! Eight years didn’t seem long enough to be a teacher. After all, there were teachers at my school that had been teaching for over thirty years. I felt I should teach at least 20 years for some kind of retirement, right?
After a year of fighting the internal battle, I decided to quit my job at the end of the school year and work for myself. I had been studying life coaching and mindset coaching, and I could see myself doing that for work. I enjoyed it so much that it hardly felt like work at all. It was just fun! The hard part…acquiring clients.
I had taken business courses and had been learning about how to work with my ideal clients, and I would implement what I was learning. I wasn’t always comfortable, but I was at least moving my feet and doing my best to do the things I teach and am in alignment with. I always knew when something didn’t feel right. It just felt “icky” or “off.” The crazy thing, though, was when I just kept moving, clients seemed to just show up out of the woodwork…even if they weren’t the people I had been nurturing from previous outreaches they were interested in. I am continually learning that when these universal laws of prosperity are applied, things start to come together in miraculous ways.
On two occasions, I had two online business owners, whom I had met from different courses that I had taken, approach me and ask me if I’d work for them and serve their clients in their programs they developed. Both of them told me that my name kept coming to their minds, and they felt they should reach out and be a Mindset Coach on their team. My calendar started filling up pretty quickly, and I loved the opportunity to see how we can co-create with God the desires of our heart and watch the miracles that unfold, simply because I decided to move forward towards my dreams, trusting in His timing and not being attached to how I was going to acquire all the clients myself. I was open to receiving all God has in store, and He provided the way for a lot more clients then I could have gotten myself.
