Overcoming self doubt and finding one’s light…

Tanya Alvarez, Co-Founder of Owners Up (a community of solopreneurs that help you achieve your business goals and technology that tracks your accomplishments – (bio)), joins Julie Chan at the MouthMedia Network Studios.

Challenge despite success, a passion to help, and the genesis of Owners Up

Alvarez revisits her purpose reading from Chan a year ago, being born in NY and raised in Miami by single parent, growing a company at the age of 25 to more than $1 Million in revenue and selling it, starting a fifth company, the importance of always having a team around you, giving entrepreneurs a success structure to take on the world, how she pulled out of raising money for a company to get more life balance, and her passion was helping entrepreneurs but didn’t want to be labeled a business coach, wanting to make a difference, putting entrepreneurs in groups of five and a providing a successful facilitator, weekly calls, software to write goals along with a daily wrap up, and the ability to chart data for skills/weaknesses, data and metrics. How the “you from a month ago” can coach you when encountering obstacles.

Seer of truth, seeking transformation, and white light vs. dark light

Chan reviews Alvarez’s prior purpose meeting with five to six pages of channeled text of blocks, actions, thought impressions, and images made up of something like a metaphor resembling streaming video. Chan’s reading includes images of a seer of truth and detail, seeking transformation, finding wisdom, truth, and value potential that no one else can see and helping them to bring it into fruition, zooming into what is causing the pain, the white light of love, and a ball of dark light, and asking where is your light.

Fighting ego, a need to blend in, and audaciousness, vulnerability and leadership

Label vs. impact of efforts, getting to the point of being able to say yes to the offers such as getting on the stage, and how having a team around her Alvarez can do big challenges. But speaking was another thing, being in the spotlight. Deciding what you want to do, who to impact, the importance of being seen. How fear goes away after practice. Alvarez’s interview with CNN on TV as a big growth from a life of wanting to blend in, and the impact of keeping the goals in mind and in front of you. Being audacious, vulnerable, and a leader. What is Alvarez’s superpower? How to not stay in negative modes, and how helping someone helps shake negativity. And, looking at your life through a certain “tint”. Plus, being held accountable, prioritizing values, the defaults for sabotage, and knowing one’s goals will happen.

015 – Mini Intuitive Reading with Jillian Richardson of The Joy List – Joy and Jelly Beans

Spreading joy and being present in its discovery…

Jillian Richardson, freelance comedic writer and founder of The Joy List (bio), joins Julie Chan for a mini-intuitive reading and discussion on spreading joy and living a live of purpose. Recorded at the MouthMedia Network Studios.

Funny copywriting, mindful entrepreneurs, and creating The Joy List

Richardson reviews her background as a freelance writer, working with companies who want to make their companies laugh, the life of a funny copywriter, and how and why she created The Joy List when she moved to NYC to find and participate in great communities. Mindful entrepreneurs meetups, ways to meet people and deeply connect, eye gazing and connections and messages, balancing the emotions of looking for the next paycheck, and the contrast of being around people vs. the solitude of being a freelancer.

Jelly beans, trying everything, and relishing each moment

Chan shares a mini intuitive reading, aligning with one is on a soul level, the metaphor of jelly beans different flavors with colors so similar, life like a jar of jellybeans, each with own flavor, eating a handful, combining into a new singular flavor, or eat one and savor, tripped up by the hunt for the one best jellybean, which doesn’t exist. Being in the state of discovery, reflecting on when Richardson might assume she’d react a certain way without knowing the actual result, and being open. A child telling others what to do and being bossy as a child, being perceived as very smart. How the reading reinforced that the way she’s leading her life is not wrong. Being brought up being a very good job candidate, now working for herself. Jelly beans as things on her life that she could be doing, not shunning anything, trying everything and seeing what resonates best. Relating this to a romantic life, if jelly beans were men, her experiences in summer camp for adults, when the brain and heart connect, and relishing each moment that does exist.

Being present in discovery, being the happiest, and stepping away from technology

The image of a small child methodically lining up jelly beans, how that influences the people around Richardson on the choices she makes, doing new things while living in the moment while doing them, instead of doing something and thinking about the next one. Being present in the discovery, and what is joy for Richardson, the idea of community and who she surrounds herself with, and what makes her the happiest she’s ever been — and how The Joy List relates to this. Stepping away from technology and bring present with whom you’re with, and the joy found without technology.

Recorded at the MouthMedia Network Studios.

Wall Street vs. the Universe, quieting the mind, and not using guided meditation

Photo credit Marc RacoBravo discusses the importance of having proper barriers, having to be mindful at all times, working on Wall Street and embracing logic by day, then being open to the universe at other times. For legality purposes, leaving each world in its own, with no blame, no credit, and just being a “tool”. The key is quieting the mind. Why Bravo does not use guided mediation so that the mind can be quiet, letting whatever is going to come in, come in. How we hold ourselves back in psychic abilities, and it is a passive process, and the need to just feel and know things. Everyone has intuitive ability.
