00:00:00.570 --> 00:00:01.980
Hey, busy business people.

00:00:01.980 --> 00:00:06.270
I am here today with another entrepreneur
taking action, Julia Schneider.

00:00:06.600 --> 00:00:10.440
She is the owner of Alive With
Possibility, and she successfully

00:00:10.440 --> 00:00:15.120
sold all of her belongings and
traveled the world for 10 months.

00:00:15.480 --> 00:00:20.900
And I'm learning more about
that journey, so stay tuned.

00:00:23.100 --> 00:00:33.290
So to kick things off, like you sold
everything, she could travel the world.

00:00:33.290 --> 00:00:33.860
Why?

00:00:33.980 --> 00:00:35.150
Like, why did you want to do that?

00:00:37.670 --> 00:00:41.330
Well, you know, I, uh, so first
of all, I grew up in a family

00:00:41.330 --> 00:00:42.890
where we traveled all the time.

00:00:42.890 --> 00:00:48.250
So it almost felt like my parents
had all the suitcases packed.

00:00:48.250 --> 00:00:52.665
And we were just like, go, you
know, so I'm very used to traveling.

00:00:52.815 --> 00:00:56.745
And what I found is that when
I, uh, entered that, cause

00:00:56.745 --> 00:00:58.065
I used to work in corporate.

00:00:58.305 --> 00:01:05.565
And when I entered the corporate world,
I was really, it's almost like I felt

00:01:05.565 --> 00:01:12.975
trapped and that I just had this need
to move, you know, like kind of being

00:01:12.975 --> 00:01:16.905
like a gypsy, cause I'm very used to
this motion of constant traveling.

00:01:17.460 --> 00:01:22.440
And, uh, after two years of corporate,
I just, the one time I actually

00:01:22.440 --> 00:01:26.550
went to, I went camping with a few
friends and they were seated around

00:01:26.550 --> 00:01:31.110
the fire and I just, it just, it just
dropped, you know, I had a download

00:01:31.110 --> 00:01:32.789
it's like, I cannot do this anymore.

00:01:32.820 --> 00:01:35.250
I have to live my life.

00:01:35.400 --> 00:01:37.890
And I went back, I quit my job.

00:01:38.280 --> 00:01:39.690
I sold everything I had.

00:01:39.690 --> 00:01:42.660
And I just did exactly
what I felt like doing.

00:01:42.660 --> 00:01:46.650
I just followed my intuition and
I just went like I never, I didn't

00:01:46.650 --> 00:01:48.000
book anything ahead of time.

00:01:48.030 --> 00:01:54.510
I just, so my first, um, my
first destination was Mexico

00:01:55.260 --> 00:01:56.550
because that's what it felt like.

00:01:56.550 --> 00:02:01.320
So I went there and then I turned to
my intuition, California was next,

00:02:01.800 --> 00:02:06.330
turned to my intuition again, British
Columbia, and I just kept traveling.

00:02:06.900 --> 00:02:10.170
Um, and the reason I came back
to Ontario, which is where I live

00:02:10.170 --> 00:02:11.520
now, I'm in Canada, by the way.

00:02:12.270 --> 00:02:16.700
And, uh, I just had a premonition
that my grandma was something

00:02:16.740 --> 00:02:17.700
was going to happen to her.

00:02:18.000 --> 00:02:21.090
So I just wanted to, uh, go
back and be closer to her.

00:02:21.180 --> 00:02:24.060
If it wasn't the case, I would
keep traveling probably for awhile.

00:02:24.329 --> 00:02:27.360
Oh man, that just sounds like I
can't even imagine, like, I'm one

00:02:27.360 --> 00:02:31.390
of these people that plans and
packs and I have to be organized.

00:02:31.390 --> 00:02:35.490
I can't even imagine just being
willing to just let go like that and

00:02:35.490 --> 00:02:37.350
just travel like out of everywhere.

00:02:37.350 --> 00:02:38.970
You've been like, what
was your favorite place?

00:02:38.970 --> 00:02:40.010
Like your favorite adventure?

00:02:41.900 --> 00:02:46.080
Uh, I would say, well, Mexico
was very interesting because

00:02:46.080 --> 00:02:47.910
I lived in that in a village.

00:02:48.060 --> 00:02:51.530
I, uh, you know, there were goats
walking around in the streets.

00:02:51.550 --> 00:02:53.460
So it was like old dirt streets.

00:02:53.490 --> 00:02:55.500
There were roosters everywhere.

00:02:55.500 --> 00:02:57.130
They would wake us up
at three in the morning.

00:02:57.239 --> 00:03:01.710
So the saying that roosters
arise with the sun is not true.

00:03:02.550 --> 00:03:06.840
They wake up much earlier and,
uh, yeah, and it was just a very

00:03:06.840 --> 00:03:08.580
interesting, um, experience.

00:03:08.580 --> 00:03:11.980
Cause it was, it was not morning at all.

00:03:12.309 --> 00:03:16.154
There was this, you know, we had the
internet from time to time, but, um,

00:03:17.244 --> 00:03:21.584
what used to happen is that because
the internet wires were made of copper

00:03:22.364 --> 00:03:27.434
and, uh, apparently thieves, apparently
you can sell copper for a lot of money.

00:03:27.734 --> 00:03:30.795
So, uh, there were theives
that kept stealing the wires.

00:03:30.795 --> 00:03:34.304
So we would have, you know,
intermittant internet.

00:03:34.394 --> 00:03:38.654
And, but in what he taught me is to stop
taking things so seriously, you know,

00:03:39.765 --> 00:03:42.195
When you can't work, you just can't work.

00:03:42.285 --> 00:03:44.165
And there's like, nothing
you can do about it.

00:03:44.174 --> 00:03:47.144
You can get mad, you can get,
but it doesn't, it's not going to

00:03:47.144 --> 00:03:48.585
change the fact that you can't work.

00:03:48.585 --> 00:03:54.065
And I just learned to live more with the
flow and just trust that everything's

00:03:54.065 --> 00:03:56.225
going to work out exactly as it has to.

00:03:56.315 --> 00:04:02.185
So I would say, yeah, Mexico was a
very interesting experience for me.

00:04:02.605 --> 00:04:06.255
Uh, I mean, you just kind of spoke to a
little bit of my next question, but like

00:04:06.255 --> 00:04:10.155
you're running a coaching business while
you're traveling around working remotely

00:04:10.155 --> 00:04:13.215
and you, I mean, you're all over the place
with all kinds of different challenges.

00:04:13.215 --> 00:04:14.775
Like what was that like?

00:04:14.775 --> 00:04:16.295
How did you, how did you juggle all that?

00:04:18.965 --> 00:04:21.725
It was, uh, again, it was at first.

00:04:21.785 --> 00:04:26.705
So when I just arrived in Mexico, I
still, uh, had this, uh, mint because

00:04:26.725 --> 00:04:31.325
again, I'm in Canada and here, especially
in the winter, people work a lot.

00:04:31.355 --> 00:04:32.495
Cause I mean, what are you going to do?

00:04:32.495 --> 00:04:33.485
It's really cold.

00:04:33.785 --> 00:04:34.955
Nobody wants to go inside.

00:04:34.955 --> 00:04:37.775
So it's like you have this mentality
of work, work, work, work, work.

00:04:38.375 --> 00:04:44.034
And then when I came to Mexico, Uh,
the first week, I actually had a really

00:04:44.245 --> 00:04:51.625
challenging time because the pace was
much slower and it was very weird.

00:04:52.195 --> 00:04:55.435
It was like, what am i
going to do with myself?

00:04:55.715 --> 00:04:57.625
And then I just gradually adjusted.

00:04:58.164 --> 00:05:03.265
And again, I just started listening to my
intuition, you know, anything that needed

00:05:03.265 --> 00:05:08.905
to be done because when you can't control
the outcome, you have to surrender.

00:05:10.140 --> 00:05:12.330
You know, you can't, it's
just not going to work if you

00:05:12.330 --> 00:05:13.650
keep trying to control stuff.

00:05:13.740 --> 00:05:19.170
And so I just, yeah, I just, I just
did exactly what felt right in the

00:05:19.170 --> 00:05:22.770
moment and things just kept rolling.

00:05:22.830 --> 00:05:27.330
You know, community grew, uh, I
was attracting new people online.

00:05:27.330 --> 00:05:31.650
It was online, uh, because, uh, in
the village I lived, I mean, the

00:05:31.650 --> 00:05:36.540
con the concept of what age you was,
it was just not even on the radar.

00:05:36.540 --> 00:05:37.905
Like, on the radar at all.

00:05:38.985 --> 00:05:43.065
Um, but yeah, it's, it just,
it all followed very naturally.

00:05:43.065 --> 00:05:48.465
And it really helped me to trust,
you know, to trust, uh, the universe

00:05:48.855 --> 00:05:54.195
to trust myself, you know, and to
trust that I'll be able to, you

00:05:54.195 --> 00:05:56.765
know, no matter what happens, that
I'll be able to figure it out.

00:05:57.780 --> 00:06:02.520
And I mean, I never had an, an
experience where things just like fell

00:06:02.520 --> 00:06:04.560
through and I didn't know what to do.

00:06:04.590 --> 00:06:07.229
There was always the next
step and the next step.

00:06:08.099 --> 00:06:10.650
And it kind of reminds me of
somebody I interviewed last week.

00:06:10.650 --> 00:06:14.280
He said that, um, pretty much all
of life and all of business is a

00:06:14.280 --> 00:06:18.450
series of, you know, just the cycle
of problem strategy solutions.

00:06:19.065 --> 00:06:20.745
Like, you're just constantly doing it.

00:06:20.745 --> 00:06:21.615
And he said problems.

00:06:21.615 --> 00:06:24.795
Aren't a bad thing because once you
can identify the problem, now you

00:06:24.795 --> 00:06:28.485
can work on the strategy and then the
solution and then do it all over again.

00:06:28.995 --> 00:06:30.405
It just kind of reminded me of that.

00:06:30.405 --> 00:06:32.805
What you just said, like you just
can't control some stuff, but you

00:06:32.805 --> 00:06:35.565
can work on the strategy to deal
with it and you can work on a

00:06:35.565 --> 00:06:37.335
solution to it and just keep going.

00:06:38.625 --> 00:06:38.965
Yeah.

00:06:39.075 --> 00:06:39.284
Yeah.

00:06:39.315 --> 00:06:44.594
It's like, like for me, I find in business
it's good to have structure and it's good

00:06:44.594 --> 00:06:46.034
to have flexibility within the stress.

00:06:47.205 --> 00:06:50.145
Yeah, because if you don't
have the structure, it could be

00:06:50.145 --> 00:06:52.815
really stressful too, because
you just don't know what to do.

00:06:54.885 --> 00:06:59.175
But as long as you have a structure
and you have an intention to sort of

00:06:59.175 --> 00:07:05.275
stay within it, as much as you can, the
rest can be very fluent and flexible.

00:07:09.015 --> 00:07:13.345
I know like you're in kind of a, as
Pedro Dale likes to call it a woo

00:07:13.345 --> 00:07:17.445
woo kind of space, but like, I'm
just going to step back for a second.

00:07:17.475 --> 00:07:19.185
You were beyond qualified.

00:07:19.185 --> 00:07:22.275
Like I know a lot of people
wouldn't probably expect that.

00:07:22.275 --> 00:07:27.555
Given what you're in, you had about 22
different qualifications and achievements.

00:07:27.555 --> 00:07:28.035
I think when.

00:07:28.590 --> 00:07:33.270
When I looked them up, you're a certified
kinesiologist from York University

00:07:33.270 --> 00:07:37.500
recreation leisure specialist from
Canadore College autogenic regulation

00:07:37.500 --> 00:07:41.160
practitioner from York University, a Reiki
master certification from Hilly Lake.

00:07:41.160 --> 00:07:44.100
You have put a lot of
effort into your education.

00:07:44.100 --> 00:07:47.280
How has that played into
what you do every day?

00:07:47.280 --> 00:07:51.740
Or like what made you pursue just so
much qualification and achievements?

00:07:52.170 --> 00:07:57.650
Well, thanks for the question cause,
um, you know, I love to learn, I'm

00:07:57.650 --> 00:08:01.770
just, just so passionate about
learning for me, it's a hobby.

00:08:01.770 --> 00:08:03.090
It's, it's very interesting.

00:08:03.120 --> 00:08:09.910
And I actually love science, both science
and, uh, well let's call it the woo

00:08:09.910 --> 00:08:12.150
woo world, but I call it spirituality.

00:08:12.180 --> 00:08:18.825
So science and spirituality is for me,
um, just science is not enough because

00:08:18.825 --> 00:08:21.604
science just, um, I wouldn't call it.

00:08:21.604 --> 00:08:26.294
It just covers, uh, the things we
can see, but there's so many things

00:08:26.744 --> 00:08:29.354
outside of that that we can't see.

00:08:29.655 --> 00:08:34.470
And I think that's where spirituality
comes in, but what I like is, uh, to have

00:08:34.470 --> 00:08:39.090
my spiritual understanding being confirmed
by science that that's really, you know,

00:08:39.120 --> 00:08:45.360
that's really kind of energizes me and I
actually started out as a kinesiologist.

00:08:46.230 --> 00:08:48.780
Kinesiology is the
science of human movement.

00:08:49.170 --> 00:08:55.430
So we studied anatomy and physiology and
you know, well, virology, it's not exactly

00:08:55.470 --> 00:08:59.200
human movement, but it's related to human.

00:08:59.200 --> 00:09:04.425
health And, uh, when I, I actually
remember, I had a moment, um, the

00:09:04.425 --> 00:09:08.115
first time I stepped into my, uh,
human physiology course, it was

00:09:08.115 --> 00:09:11.805
this huge lecture whole with, uh,
I think there were like about 300

00:09:12.495 --> 00:09:14.175
seeds that was, you know, very deep.

00:09:14.204 --> 00:09:19.545
You had to go downstairs to, uh, to,
uh, get to the, you know, to the chairs.

00:09:19.574 --> 00:09:27.165
And, um, when I started studying
physiology, I realized that there's

00:09:28.125 --> 00:09:32.085
the human experience like the human
being, the human body very directly

00:09:32.085 --> 00:09:34.005
related to the entire universe.

00:09:34.305 --> 00:09:39.165
You can't, you can't study
human physiology or anatomy,

00:09:39.165 --> 00:09:42.495
or just like the science of
human health without addressing.

00:09:43.635 --> 00:09:48.855
Everything in the universe, really, you
know, your lifestyle, your surroundings,

00:09:49.275 --> 00:09:53.895
your interaction with nature, your
interaction with humans, other humans.

00:09:54.195 --> 00:09:57.495
And then the more you keep
going, it's like going down the

00:09:57.495 --> 00:09:59.445
rabbit hole, it just never ends.

00:10:00.315 --> 00:10:05.475
And I just kept learning because, you
know, I would learn something new and it

00:10:05.475 --> 00:10:06.855
would be like, okay, well I think, yeah.

00:10:06.885 --> 00:10:07.125
Okay.

00:10:07.125 --> 00:10:07.995
I think I get it now.

00:10:08.065 --> 00:10:11.324
And then I would be, like, but
wait a minute, but there's more

00:10:11.625 --> 00:10:13.814
and I was just go to the next
level, you know what I'm saying?

00:10:13.814 --> 00:10:17.324
And it just never ends, like I'm
taking a break right now from

00:10:17.324 --> 00:10:20.655
studying, just because, you know,
I, I've been doing it actually.

00:10:20.655 --> 00:10:22.064
I never stopped since high school.

00:10:22.965 --> 00:10:29.295
And I think I want to a little bit
of a break, but, uh, yeah, I'm just

00:10:29.295 --> 00:10:31.785
very interested in how life works.

00:10:31.885 --> 00:10:32.939
It fascinates me.

00:10:33.239 --> 00:10:34.410
I think that's really awesome.

00:10:34.410 --> 00:10:37.229
So, I mean, you obviously, you know,
your stuff in a variety of different

00:10:37.229 --> 00:10:41.729
areas, like, what do you think is
the most misunderstood thing or

00:10:41.729 --> 00:10:45.599
something that people don't understand
when it comes to like holistic self

00:10:45.599 --> 00:10:47.939
care to, you know, all of that?

00:10:47.939 --> 00:10:49.709
Like, what do you think is
the most misunderstood thing?

00:10:52.239 --> 00:10:56.380
Well, I would say first of all, I think
people make it way too complicated.

00:10:56.739 --> 00:11:00.130
You know, there's a, it's actually
very simple to be healthy.

00:11:00.540 --> 00:11:03.990
All you need to do is live in alignment
with the laws of nature, because

00:11:03.990 --> 00:11:06.900
we are human beings, very alive.

00:11:06.930 --> 00:11:08.910
They're made out of nature particles.

00:11:09.600 --> 00:11:11.100
Our cells are made out of nature.

00:11:11.370 --> 00:11:17.940
So it's very important to live
with the cycles of nature, uh,

00:11:17.970 --> 00:11:19.230
you know, the laws of nature.

00:11:19.950 --> 00:11:22.710
And as long as you can do that,
it's very easy to be healthy.

00:11:23.190 --> 00:11:25.230
For example, I haven't, uh, let's see.

00:11:25.230 --> 00:11:26.610
I haven't seen the medical doctors.

00:11:27.449 --> 00:11:31.530
Uh, probably for the last 13
years, I have not had medication

00:11:31.770 --> 00:11:33.420
at all for the last 13 years.

00:11:33.449 --> 00:11:34.359
There there's no need.

00:11:34.630 --> 00:11:38.130
I'm very healthy because I
just, I just don't do the things

00:11:38.130 --> 00:11:39.239
that compromise my health.

00:11:39.930 --> 00:11:45.310
And, um, what I seen in society right
now is that there's a lot of gimmicks.

00:11:45.939 --> 00:11:48.915
You know, there's a lot of, you
know, take a supplement for this.

00:11:48.915 --> 00:11:54.765
Take a supplement, honestly,
there's you could do it as a patch

00:11:54.765 --> 00:11:59.655
up solution or maybe just to like
boost your performance from time to

00:11:59.655 --> 00:12:02.145
time, but that's not real health.

00:12:02.175 --> 00:12:06.194
That's just kind of, you know,
it, it's just that kind of,

00:12:06.285 --> 00:12:09.704
um, like a short term solution.

00:12:10.094 --> 00:12:15.600
The long-term solution is to simply be
a human being and live in a way that

00:12:15.600 --> 00:12:20.520
we're designed to live and yeah, I
think that's, uh, it, it just, you know,

00:12:20.520 --> 00:12:21.870
there's no need to complicate things.

00:12:21.870 --> 00:12:22.860
I guess that's what I'm trying to say.

00:12:23.400 --> 00:12:25.860
Well, and I know you work as a
business coach and stuff as well.

00:12:25.860 --> 00:12:29.189
So it's like, what is something
that you wish you could change?

00:12:29.220 --> 00:12:33.120
Like when it comes to entrepreneurship
to running companies, to working?

00:12:33.120 --> 00:12:35.160
I mean, like what's something
you wish you could change

00:12:36.660 --> 00:12:37.239
yeah.

00:12:37.459 --> 00:12:38.819
So here's what I just go.

00:12:38.819 --> 00:12:42.599
Cause you know, when I left corporate, I
was very excited about entrepreneurship.

00:12:42.630 --> 00:12:46.500
I'm still very excited about it,
but what I realized that what's

00:12:46.500 --> 00:12:50.609
missing for me is I work alone and.

00:12:51.405 --> 00:12:57.675
I thought that that's what I wanted
because you know, who wants all the hustle

00:12:57.675 --> 00:12:59.835
of, you know, politics and all that.

00:13:00.195 --> 00:13:05.085
But I actually feel, uh, felt
isolated, really isolated.

00:13:05.235 --> 00:13:09.465
And, um, so I had to find ways
to connect to various communities

00:13:09.705 --> 00:13:11.085
just so that I'm not alone.

00:13:11.295 --> 00:13:17.355
And I would say I, yeah, so that,
and then of course the up and

00:13:17.355 --> 00:13:20.295
down of intrepreneurship, that
could be a little bit tricky.

00:13:21.495 --> 00:13:25.125
Especially if, uh, you know, like you
need to know how to manage your money.

00:13:25.215 --> 00:13:30.885
Cause if, if you are used to a
steady paycheck and then you become

00:13:30.885 --> 00:13:35.235
an entrepreneur, it could be like a
pretty big shock to realize, wait a

00:13:35.235 --> 00:13:38.025
minute, where did the ??? come from.

00:13:38.565 --> 00:13:39.045
Yeah.

00:13:39.225 --> 00:13:42.615
But if you sort of manage your money
properly and you just, you know,

00:13:42.855 --> 00:13:47.655
space things out, then you, uh, save
for like a rainy day kind of thing,

00:13:48.045 --> 00:13:49.805
then it becomes much more stable.

00:13:50.725 --> 00:13:53.010
And entrepreneurship
can be very enjoyable.

00:13:53.670 --> 00:13:56.160
I mean, on that vein, do you
have any, just like advice or

00:13:56.160 --> 00:13:57.209
tips that you want to share?

00:13:57.209 --> 00:14:02.849
Most of our audience is business owners,
specifically small business owners that

00:14:02.849 --> 00:14:08.280
are looking to kind of grow or scale up
their businesses, or just enjoy what they

00:14:08.280 --> 00:14:10.260
do all day and have a better lifestyle.

00:14:10.260 --> 00:14:11.280
Do you have any tips for them?

00:14:12.939 --> 00:14:13.810
Yeah, I do.

00:14:13.810 --> 00:14:16.660
I would say do less, do less.

00:14:17.580 --> 00:14:19.260
And enjoy your life more.

00:14:19.470 --> 00:14:22.860
And the reason I'm saying is it's
actually also connected to holistic

00:14:22.860 --> 00:14:27.970
health, is that when you are happy and
you're vibrant and you have tons of

00:14:27.990 --> 00:14:30.450
energy things just get magnetized to you.

00:14:30.930 --> 00:14:34.050
You know, like for example,
I was doing them in may.

00:14:34.110 --> 00:14:39.030
I did, uh, uh, an Alliance summit
called alleges possibility, uplifting

00:14:39.030 --> 00:14:40.830
happiness, and well being on the planet.

00:14:41.460 --> 00:14:43.350
And I was so excited about it.

00:14:43.350 --> 00:14:44.370
I was just so passionate.

00:14:45.195 --> 00:14:47.295
I had people offer me support.

00:14:47.325 --> 00:14:49.095
I never even asked for it.

00:14:49.125 --> 00:14:50.925
You know, I never even looked for that.

00:14:51.015 --> 00:14:55.485
And I just had like, the entire
summit came together almost like that.

00:14:55.545 --> 00:14:58.295
Like I honestly don't feel i even work.

00:14:58.785 --> 00:15:01.695
It was just the funnest more joy.

00:15:01.785 --> 00:15:05.025
Most of the horrible experience
I had and I spent, I'm going to

00:15:05.025 --> 00:15:07.635
tell you, I spent probably let's.

00:15:07.875 --> 00:15:13.765
I think I spent maybe like three
hours, four hours a week working on it.

00:15:13.835 --> 00:15:14.645
That's it.

00:15:15.225 --> 00:15:18.060
The rest of the time I went to
the beach, I went for hikes.

00:15:18.360 --> 00:15:24.180
I socialized with my friends
and I just enjoyed my life.

00:15:24.270 --> 00:15:30.990
And I like, I, you know, I'm convinced
that the reason it turned out so well is

00:15:30.990 --> 00:15:32.880
because I was very energized and happy.

00:15:33.450 --> 00:15:35.880
And, uh, so that's my tip.

00:15:35.940 --> 00:15:38.580
Do less, take more vacations.

00:15:39.705 --> 00:15:44.175
And make sure that, you know, if you're
starting to notice that you're kind

00:15:44.175 --> 00:15:48.745
of getting frustrated or sort of like
annoyed with your business take a step

00:15:48.885 --> 00:15:53.244
back, it's going, gonna be much more
helpful than just pushing through.

00:15:53.244 --> 00:15:54.735
You'll achieve so much more.

00:15:54.765 --> 00:16:00.240
If you just take a break re-energize
yourself and come back to what you're

00:16:00.240 --> 00:16:04.869
doing with this, you know, happy
and inspire them., vibrant attitude.

00:16:04.920 --> 00:16:06.660
I like that advice a lot.

00:16:06.660 --> 00:16:10.949
Something I've been encouraging people to
do a lot more of, I word it differently,

00:16:10.949 --> 00:16:13.349
but I think it's actually the same advice.

00:16:13.349 --> 00:16:18.209
Like I tell people to focus on figuring
out what your superpower is, who you

00:16:18.209 --> 00:16:21.689
want to spend, like all day, every
day, working with like your favorite

00:16:21.689 --> 00:16:23.280
clients, the ones that make you happy.

00:16:23.845 --> 00:16:27.325
You know, and then figure out what
you want to do for them from there.

00:16:27.325 --> 00:16:30.655
And it's like, once you kind of do
those things, you do really end up

00:16:30.655 --> 00:16:35.814
working less, making more enjoying
what you do, not dreading, you know,

00:16:35.814 --> 00:16:39.475
getting up every morning and you end
up doing some really cool things.

00:16:39.505 --> 00:16:41.875
I mean like a lot of the stuff
I'm inventing in my businesses

00:16:41.875 --> 00:16:43.045
is because of that, you know?

00:16:43.920 --> 00:16:47.189
Adopting that philosophy and I'm
happier than I have been in years.

00:16:47.760 --> 00:16:50.010
Um, so it's a lot of fun now.

00:16:50.069 --> 00:16:53.130
Um, I know we've kind of hit around
a little bit on kind of what you

00:16:53.130 --> 00:16:55.860
do, but let's, I want to give you
a chance to really talk about that.

00:16:55.860 --> 00:16:57.990
Like, who do you like to work with?

00:16:58.050 --> 00:16:59.939
How do you help them and
how does someone find you?

00:17:01.570 --> 00:17:07.450
Yeah, well, I, uh, so I typically work
with women and it's women who they really

00:17:07.480 --> 00:17:10.089
they're really passionate about making
a positive difference in the world.

00:17:11.020 --> 00:17:14.510
Um, women, uh, who see the,
something is not working.

00:17:14.860 --> 00:17:19.935
You know, with the way society is, you
know, handling things or just, you know,

00:17:19.935 --> 00:17:21.945
in the real, in their own personal life.

00:17:22.545 --> 00:17:26.505
And they just need clarity, they need
encouragement, they need support.

00:17:26.585 --> 00:17:30.735
Then you tell them to believe in
them and they need, uh, also to

00:17:30.735 --> 00:17:33.845
find a ways to like, have a lot of
energy because they they're, they're

00:17:33.855 --> 00:17:37.965
typically slightly burnt out and,
uh, they tend to, it's very specific.

00:17:38.655 --> 00:17:41.715
They tend to lean towards being anxious.

00:17:41.715 --> 00:17:45.405
Like they sort of more of an anxious type.

00:17:45.615 --> 00:17:49.245
So they, as a result, they
typically are slightly burned out.

00:17:49.245 --> 00:17:54.675
So I just help them to, you know,
uh, be at their best, uh, physically,

00:17:54.705 --> 00:18:01.125
emotionally, psychologically, spiritually,
uh, and the way I work, I mean, now things

00:18:01.125 --> 00:18:02.564
change a little bit because of COVID.

00:18:02.595 --> 00:18:07.064
Cause uh, you know, people are a little
nervous getting together in person, but

00:18:07.064 --> 00:18:10.035
I used to take people into the forrest.

00:18:10.254 --> 00:18:14.625
And then we would just walk in
the forest and talk and what I do.

00:18:14.655 --> 00:18:15.885
Um, I'm very intuitive.

00:18:15.915 --> 00:18:18.764
I can read energy pretty easily.

00:18:18.824 --> 00:18:25.574
And what I typically do is that, so
when a client talks to me, I hear them.

00:18:26.925 --> 00:18:30.435
Let's just say, I hear
what's underneath the words.

00:18:31.004 --> 00:18:39.135
And, um, I hear what is needed
for them to hear that they're not.

00:18:39.875 --> 00:18:43.305
Realizing, I guess that's
the best way to put it.

00:18:43.305 --> 00:18:46.965
And I just reflect back to them
and I helped them gain clarity.

00:18:46.965 --> 00:18:52.605
And I find that when people have clarity,
that's the quickest way to move forward,

00:18:52.725 --> 00:18:58.005
because I think it gets in the way,
oftentimes you just don't know what to do.

00:18:58.065 --> 00:19:00.885
We don't know what we don't
know whether we think we know

00:19:00.885 --> 00:19:02.235
what we want, but not really.

00:19:02.655 --> 00:19:03.045
Right.

00:19:03.635 --> 00:19:08.355
And then if we even know what we want, we
don't actually know what to do, you know?

00:19:08.385 --> 00:19:13.995
And, uh, once people get that
clarity, move really quickly.

00:19:15.975 --> 00:19:17.535
Um, yeah.

00:19:17.535 --> 00:19:21.315
And now, I mean, I still like, you
know, people who are comfortable

00:19:21.315 --> 00:19:24.885
getting together, then we just,
you know, go for it a hike.

00:19:24.885 --> 00:19:26.865
Uh, and people are not,
we just, we work my line.

00:19:27.015 --> 00:19:32.445
My, and there's also an option
to take me on the phone.

00:19:32.445 --> 00:19:37.845
So basically going to the forest on your
own and then have me coach on the phone.

00:19:38.455 --> 00:19:39.855
And I've had a few of those.

00:19:39.915 --> 00:19:44.295
Uh, some people, like most people
tend to be a bit nervous going

00:19:44.385 --> 00:19:45.495
into the forest on their own.

00:19:49.175 --> 00:19:51.645
Yeah, I would definitely be one
of those that would be nervous.

00:19:51.645 --> 00:19:55.935
I don't like going outdoors with
bugs and it makes me very nervous.

00:19:56.655 --> 00:19:56.955
So.

00:19:58.155 --> 00:19:58.425
Yeah.

00:19:58.635 --> 00:20:02.405
Oh, and actually, I just forgot
to mention it like that online.

00:20:02.405 --> 00:20:07.635
What I do is I also support women
with it's called a woman speak.

00:20:07.665 --> 00:20:12.885
So I basically help women again,
same thing, women who want to make a

00:20:12.885 --> 00:20:16.485
positive difference in the world, and
they want to speak in a way that is

00:20:16.485 --> 00:20:19.395
very clear and enrolling for people.

00:20:19.665 --> 00:20:24.435
So it's, it's kind of like a public
speaking, sir, a circle that I host,

00:20:25.034 --> 00:20:32.625
uh, and then those women from that
circle they become my speakers for

00:20:32.875 --> 00:20:35.040
???
Oh, that's really cool.

00:20:35.310 --> 00:20:36.810
Now, how can someone find you online?

00:20:36.810 --> 00:20:40.170
Do you have a website or social media,
or like, where can they find you?

00:20:42.504 --> 00:20:42.865
Yeah.

00:20:42.865 --> 00:20:49.405
So the website is, uh,
alivewithpossibility.coach and

00:20:49.405 --> 00:20:50.485
you can just contact me there.

00:20:50.575 --> 00:20:54.054
I'll make sure I have that link wherever
you guys are watching this video from

00:20:54.054 --> 00:20:56.695
when I post it out in the world, I'll
make sure that link is somewhere near it.

00:20:57.415 --> 00:20:59.084
Um, well, thank you so much.

00:20:59.084 --> 00:21:01.225
Now we're right at about our 20
minutes, which is how long I try

00:21:01.225 --> 00:21:02.304
and keep these most of the time.

00:21:02.845 --> 00:21:06.895
