It’s been a bit quiet around here lately, and I haven’t been posting as much as I’d like. I’ve been getting more clear about the purpose behind Illuminated Mind and what that’s going to look like over the next few years.
My aim has always been to help people live more on their own terms and live extraordinary lives. But the focus hasn’t been as clear as I’d like. This blog started out primarily as a self development blog, then it began to transition into following your passion and getting paid to do what you love. Then, I started helping people break limiting structures and had a lot of fun doing coaching around that.
But throughout all of this I feel like my focus hasn’t been completely clear. That’s about to change.
The new direction of Illuminated Mind will be 100% directed toward helping you create a sustainable income following your passion and making a meaningful difference in the world.
It’s taken me a while to step into this purpose fully. For a while I questioned whether or not I was qualified to do this. While for the past year and a half I’ve supported myself and my family doing what makes me come alive, for some reason I struggled with going all out helping people follow their passions and making a living doing it.
I’m not sure why… maybe it’s fear. Maybe I thought I would put myself in a box. Maybe I thought people would question my credentials (I don’t have any “official” credentials).
But even with this questioning, it’s clear that this is what I’m meant to do with my life. Nearly every coaching client I’ve had has come to me specifically for help getting paid to be who they are. And partnering with them, I’ve helped them achieve some incredible results. A few weeks ago, I found out that a client I did only one session with went from zero to 5 paying clients per week. He did it within a month, and this was after just one coaching session.
And then it kind of hit me: Why am I holding myself back with this? Why am I not going all in?
I didn’t have a satisfying answer to that question. It was clear that the only thing holding me back was my own insecurity about stepping fully into my purpose.
So, that ends here.
From now on, the main purpose of my work at Illuminated Mind will be to help you make a living doing what makes you come alive, and do it while making a difference in the world.
I’ll keep talking about the other stuff that’s important to me, like the perfect path, doing remarkable things, and why passion alone won’t build a business. But now everything that I write, share, and create will be centered around the main purpose: helping people earn a living doing what they love.
What this has to do with you
If you’ve been struggling to find meaning in your work, and feel like you’ve been renting out your mind to achieve someone else’s goals just to survive, then I’d like to help you. That is, if you’d like to experience something different.
In a few days I’ll be opening up enrollment for Paid to Exist, an eight week course I’ve created to help you go from Ground Zero to a sustainable business doing what you love.
I’ll be releasing some highly valuable free content next week that I believe is worth at least the cost of the course. If you’d like to get that content, here is where you can register:
It feels good for me to be all in with my purpose. I’d like to help you do the same.
