Q.1 Your were a Human Resources professional, how did Laws of Attraction happen?
HR was an obvious choice while doing my PG in HR. It’s the Human in HR which always attracted me. And development and learning has always been an area that I loved. I wanted to start up into HR consulting – I had good experience and was trained in OD skills and so wanted to pursue that further after working for few years. As I went on the path to upgrade and add more skills to myself I discovered more about the line of coaching and training and the kind of impact it creates. And then one thing led to another. I got training as a professional trainer. I did my Coach certification with ICF in NLP and Life Coaching. With a globally recognized certification up my sleeve, I started 1×1 coaching. Post that I started reading more and more about subconscious mind power. My keenness to learn more about Law of Attraction came from that. When I got trained in LOA and applied what I learnt (NLP and L*OA both), I was blown by the results I got in some areas. And it was something that I wanted to share and teach others to bring the change and transformation in other’s lives too. And that’s how it all began.
Q2. How have you transformed as a person after going through the Laws of Attraction Certification?
I would say it started with my NLP and Life coaching certification with ICF. The results of my practicing the aforementioned got magnified with LOA certification. I learnt about myself more. I realized my deeper strength and power. I opened my eyes to the awesomeness of the abundance around us and the power of our mind and thoughts. I have always considered myself to be a positive person. But NLP and LOA made me get on a path to create the kind of life I wanted for myself. It helped me understand myself better by becoming more aware and conscious of my strengths. I have discovered my spiritual connection – my Mind-body-soul connection.
I applied what I learnt in different areas – my work, health, relationships everything has gone only uphill.
I discovered and got connected to my higher purpose and mission of helping thousands of people across the globe to become extraordinary.
Q3.Who do you suggest should do the Laws of Attraction workshops?
Anyone who considers he/she is at a place in life where they are not satisfied.
Anyone who wants to discover the true power of their mind and want to learn to harness it to design a life of their choice.
Anyone who wants to become extraordinary and want to live a life of purpose, joy, happiness and manifest holistic abundance.
Anyone who wishes to learn to control their mind, have better health, better relationships, career and wealth
There is no age factor – these are skills for life. The earlier these are learnt, the better one is to understand and harness their true power. The learning process is a life changing one.
Q4. By the very nature of your work, you are a one woman army. How do you manage operations and branding both?
I have never considered this as a business. I thought that coaching other people would be easy as I have the knowledge and skills. But the more deeper I got into it I realised that I had to move out of my coaching practice zone. I suddenly realized I am an entreprenuer !!! and that I must learn another set of skills – Entrepreneurial skills! I must admit it was overwhelming to do everything single handedly. It would take my focus away sometimes from the actual work because I had to spend a lot of time on branding/marketing. Slowly I started investing time and money in learning skills that would help me in upscaling my coaching and training business. The learning is still on. I keep myself surrounded with mentors, teachers from whom I am learning. I also keep in constant touch with peers and buddies who are on the same path of creating awesomeness and impacting other’s lives. These groups especially my accountability partners have kept me on track with my goals.
I learnt during my trainings that it’s important to delegate the marketing stuff so your hands are not full with things which can be managed by others and you can concentrate on creating value – doing what you do best. And so, I have recently delegated this work to an external agency and that hass taken quite some load off of me. But there is still a long way to go. I have only started.
More and more women are looking to make it as solopreneurs as I would like to call them. What is your advise to them, given that work life balance is a major issue?
I would say – if you have got the thought to go the entreprenuer way – kudos to you. You have the power. All you need is to learn to use it well and expand it. Get a good mentor and a coach who will help you fast-track your journey. You will make lesser mistakes as you will learn from them and would know which routes can be avoided.
Have a solid financial backing before taking the plunge. Best if you are able to do it in parallel while in your job and then once the base is established (eg – credibility), you take it full swing. When it’s not well-planned, the financial aspects can dampen the spirit and many people give up because of that.
Learn about managing your business. Delegate things which you can. You need not overwhelm yourself by doing everything on your own. Believe me it is a never ending task that you have up your sleeve.
And in the journey, always remember to love yourself and your dear ones -100% on this. No compromises.
