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.
