That is my horoscope for the week.
The same week that I did something that I haven't done in over 8 years.
What's that, you ask? Well, I got a full-time job at Salesforce. Seriously?!? Seriously.
In the Fall, I said IF I went back to work, I wanted to work at Salesforce. I set the intention. Fueled it with excitement & took some clear action steps.
I applied for a few jobs, earned over 11,000 points & 38 badges on 5 different trails in their online training system, Trailblazer.me.
But when nothing landed, I let go. And I opened myself to other possibilities & trusted my Universe.
I trusted that if this was the right path for me, it would happen. . . in the right way. . . at the right time.
I also trusted that if this wasn't the right path for me, it wouldn't happen but something else equally amazing would. And I was open to either option & everything in between.
What I knew, was that every job I've ever gotten was because someone knew someone who knew me. There was no lengthy application process or taxing interviews. Each job felt like meeting old friends. . . it was just easy.
Realizing that allowed me to trust in the process even more. On some level I knew that whatever job I got or however my business grew, it was going to be because someone knew someone who knew me. #referrals
And that is EXACTLY what happened. It's how I got the job at Salesforce & it's how my business is growing. #wordofmouth
Look, a part of me is as floored as you are. I mean, I love the work I'm doing on my own, especially the breathwork. And I'm still doing it. I can't imagine not doing it. It's just no longer all I'm doing.
I also can't believe that after being "out of the workforce" (aka the traditional workforce) for this long, that I get to work at Salesforce. #beyondlucky
The other part of me. . . well, she's just so fucking relieved to have a job. Giddy, actually.
See, if I'm totally honest with myself (& you), running your own business is hard. . . & lonely.
I miss being a part of something bigger than myself. . . being part of a team. And I miss feeling like I'm contributing. I'm also sooooo curious to see if this time will be different (like my horoscope says). Because this time, I'm different (like my horoscope says).
Don't get me wrong. There is nothing I love more than facilitating a breakthrough for someone. In seeing a person shift right before my eyes.
It's not at an ego trip. It's an honor.
But, until I'm facilitating a LOT of breakthroughs on a regular basis (go sign up for a class & tell your friends to do the same), I miss making money. There I said it.
I'm a spiritual person who really enjoys making money. Maybe that's like rubbing your belly & patting your head to some, but money has always been a driver for me. (Hint: that's why I managed to comfortably retire at 41 & not work a "real job" in over 8 years.)
