...Are All Starving For This One Thing.
As I sit here after placing the finishing touches on an outline for an upcoming Facebook Live, encouraging our son (who is practicing his newest gymnastic move on the floor near my desk), thanking our team for rocking it this week, and considering what’s ahead for the New Year… two other important things are also on my mind and heart.
The state of our world.
And the state of our industry.
When my husband, Jesse, and I started this company, it wasn’t much of a company at all, LOL! We were just two passionate people determined to transform the world through increasing the quality of life for each client we had the honor to serve. Touching hearts and allowing healing to unfold, one person at a time through our coaching and acupuncture practices.
Through a series of spiritual experiences that aligned our way of selling with the way we did our transformational work… HeartsellingTM was accidentally born.
Attracting a new client became about empowering another human being to make a choice that was best for them, whether that choice meant they worked with us or not. Having conversations in this way magnetized so many new clients we loved working with quickly and our friends started asking us how we were doing it.
We started sharing our methods with them, organically, one person to one person. Then we started doing small workshops that also happened organically, through connection.
And then one step led to another, and now we’re here...
We’ve employed hundreds of people, spoken in front of 50,000 Coaches and Holistic Practitioners, had over 8,000 people attend our live events and watched our clients collectively generate over $100 Million, all using heart centered client attraction strategies…
We’ve seen so much in this industry.
Our company, Thrive Academy, has not only survived but thrived and grown each year in the transformational space.
And that’s not an easy thing.
Our clients have grown to be some of the most successful leaders in their space… ranging from Shamans now coaching CEOs…
To Acupuncturists launching leveraged group programs...
To former teacher turned Spiritual Healer making 6 figures and writing an Amazon Bestseller...
To speaking on global stages, landing Hay House contracts, and becoming philanthropists with global impact.
They didn’t do it with a magic pill. They didn’t do it through 3 steps to rocking it out without putting in the hours. The creativity. The imagination. The love.
They did it because connection to a deeper purpose and vision compelled them to move through the pain and joy of growth.
They did it because we gave them the templates and the systems that worked for us, and they took those proven systems and made it THEIRS. They did it because they were willing to look deep within and develop their authentic voices and offered authentic value.
They connected the strategy with the hearts of those they are meant to help. They did it through 1-on-1 connection until they were so confident in getting new clients, they could scale while still maintaining the integrity of the intimacy that earned them the trust of their community in the first place.
They did it by keeping love and connection front and center, just like we always have and always will.
There is a lot of pain in our industry, the “Transformation Industry” right now. There is a lot of pain in the world right now. I can’t help but think it’s all connected.
We’ve been reaching out to coaches and holistic practitioners within the greater community at large to learn more about their pain and how they are moving through to continue bringing their vision into the world.
We love our industry and are looking to answer the question... “How can we move forward together, and better?”
While so many people talk about automation and scale and “crushing it,” I can’t help but feel that the internet and our industry in general has to make a move back toward connection, intimacy and love.
Where people feel seen, heard, understood… and something most people don’t want to talk about, but HAND HELD. Our clients rock it because we are there for them. Because we consistently meet in person. Because our programs have never become so automated that any member of our community gets left behind.
It’s the same in the world. The pain is visceral. People are hurting each other at unprecedented rates and in increasingly violent ways because they themselves are hurting. Because they are starving to be seen, known, and loved. I believe together, doing our work, touching lives, we can be that for them, organically and one person at at time.
Every time one of you reaches out and touches another life, helps a client breakthrough a limiting belief or pattern, you create a space for another human being to experience the authentic connection that both our industry, and our world, are starving for right now.
I believe that increasing connection in an increasingly disconnected industry and world is the heart and spirit of what we do at Thrive. It’s what our clients do. It’s what their clients do. And it’s how we are slowly transforming this world while also raising our two sons based on the same principles.
When people feel held, they do their best work and reach the greatest heights of success. When people feel seen and loved, it becomes harder for them to hurt others.
There’s so much going on right now sometimes it makes my head spin, and often makes my heart hurt. But I know from 13 years of leading a global movement that together we move through it.
Thanks for listening. For taking a few minutes of your busy day to hear what’s in my heart, and hopefully respond in the comments below so I can hear yours.
Love & Prosperity,
Co-Founder, Thrive Academy
