Join the Waitlist for the next Group

This group is about getting to the heart of realizing freedom and self expression in entrepreneurship, making a difference in the world through business offerings, and exploring the nuts and bolts of growing a successful business.

Do you want to start a business, but haven’t taken the dive yet? Are you in the first few years of running your own small business? Or are you a season vet and ready for a fresh way of being, less stress and more free time? If any of these apply, we’ve got great things in store for you.

When we look past what we think we know, toward the larger, unspoken understanding that lies beyond our memories and what we’ve been taught is true, something special happens. We begin to notice barriers we didn’t realize we had, we are invited to look past what we believe, we become explorers of everything. Life opens effortlessly and flows beautifully. We come alive.

Can we do this in business?

Yes we can, and it changes everything.

Have you been in the entrepreneur trap?

Let this group and our explorations release you from the shackles of “shoulds” and put the wind back in your sails.

What if you could be more resilient, delight in your work and do more with ease?

Life unfolds with simplicity when we aren’t working hard to live. Fall into flow and grow a business that seamlessly integrates with living in freedom.

It’s in the letting go, where we walk lightly and thrive.

Be you, and be the only one that does what you do.

Let’s Coddiwomple!

Coddiwomple

Verb | Cod-di-wom-ple|

  1. to travel purposefully toward unknown destinations
  2. to be open to limitless possibilities
  3. to unpredict your journey

Coddiwompling: the act of one who Coddiwomples

If you are living for the weekend or holidays, there is much more to see. Come, fall into the game of life. Providing goods and services is part of the “play” we are all born to experience. When we do what we love, follow the tickles of our soul, experiment, and have fun, “work” melts into the adventure of living. Experience the joy of being you and serving in your unique way.

After our first session together, there is a huge probability that you’ll experience more flow and ease in daily life.

 

By our final session, attendees who make the most of our explorations and offerings will:

  • Enjoy the unexpected, even when you don’t expect to
  • Have a broader support network / team
  • Have less on your mind, feel more free, be more open and creative, and experience frequent urges to dive into life
  • Intuitively know what to do, and follow your nudges
  • Have your own personal business mentor, free of charge (for US based entrepreneurs)
  • Save more cash thanks to a broader understanding of the nuts and bolts
  • You will have explored ideas that you had not previously considered, and you’ll be experiencing the sprouting of new ways of being in life and your business

 This group is all about direct experience.

How it works: We have ten 90 minute sessions together over three month’s time. In six of the ten sessions guest experts will hold the floor for the first 30 minutes. They will share tips and insights and then we will open it up for a Q & A.

After that we will discuss, explore and participate in exercises that will nudge you out of sticky habits and into experiencing more simplicity,  less stressed and a more seamless melding of having a successful business and living the life you want. The best part is: there will be no tedious homework. Our aim is to take things off your plate, not add to it.

Then you’ll have a week to go play and see what shows up for you.
