Deep Gratitude for 5 Years and Counting!

I wanted to video tape this entry today, but I didn't think I'd get through it without tearing up.

It was 5 years ago this week that I began working for myself full-time as a hypnotherapist and wellness coach. Tonight I am throwing a big party to celebrate my success and my clients' successes, and express my extreme gratitude for all who have helped me along the way. I'm excited to see old and new clients, friends, family, and networking partners–about 50 are expected.

If you've read "My Story" on my website,  it was a very stressful and scary time for me in December 2006, and I had several major "losses"/transitions going on all at once. I wasn't sure at that time how I would make it in business on my own.There was so much to learn and so much to do, and I had to start earning money right away, as I had no other source of income.

One of the greatest Godsends that got me through that time and kept me progressing forward was a small MasterMind group of other coaches that I joined and talked with every week by phone. This has lasted all this time, though there are only 3 of us that still stay in contact, and we only talk every few months now. But it was invaluable to me at that time, and I am so grateful to Sean Klonaris for starting and continuing in the group, and for the other original mastermind partners, Suzanne, Tae, Denise, and especially Mary Baker, who's courage, compassion, and insight have continued to be an inspiration and a gift.

I am thankful to Patrick Porter and Positive Changes Hypnosis Centers for employing me and fulfilling my dream of becoming a full-time hypnotherapist, as well as all the training, mentoring, and support given over the years. To Geoff Thomas for "rescuing" the centers and me from "the wicked witch" that made PCH a depressing and sterile place for a year, and doing your best to fix the mess that had been created. Then for giving me the opportunity to transition PCH's clients to my own when the center sadly closed.

Along the way I have had many mentors, coaches, networking & referral partners, and other assistance that kept me learning, growing, accountable, motivated, supported, guided, and re-energized. I know these were all divinely sent.

But most of all, I want to thank all of my amazing clients for hiring me and trusting me to help you release your blocks, change your habits, achieve your goals, and realize how capable & special you really are. You are truly the reason I do this work and keep going–even when it occasionally gets hard. If it weren't for you, I wouldn't be here celebrating 15 years of helping people transform and 5 years of being in a successful full-time practice feeling so fulfilled with the work of changing people's lives!
