Birthing a Business – myHeartykid is born…
I am always inspired to work on myself and grow, so I joined an incredible mastermind group with Susan Mayginnes called the Yoga of Leadership. Her incredible group can be found here: www.corelc.org. While in this group I felt encouraged to do something big and bold. I wanted to create a project that would take a lot of courage and meet the financial needs of people I love and adore. Launching my new educational and inspirational toy for kids of all ages, myHeartykid, is just that….BIG, BOLD AND HEARTY!
Here is the myHeartykid story: While in kindergarten, my daughter’s good friend, Ella, felt afraid to raise her hand. I wanted to help her feel BRAVE. I told her if she wrote down all the times she was courageous during the week, I would make her a surprise. Poof, myHeartykid was born. This toy helps kids develop the characteristics they want to step into by helping them visualize and actualize their dreams and desires! MyHeartykid’s owner writes a dream, or an intention, places it in myHeartykid’s pocket, looks at it each and every day and decides how to realize the dream in a special way.
Every step of this journey has been filled with trust and magic.
For example, I had no idea how to design and sew myHeartykid. I put out an intention to find the right person. I was wandering around my little town, waiting to pick up my kids, and I noticed this new Yoga Studio. I walked over, peeked in the downstairs store and inside there was a successful designer/seamstress, who had just moved in to the suite of offices. WOW! I asked her if she could pinky-swear to secrecy about myHeartykid. Noor agreed and our friendship and design relationship began. She is the genius behind their production and perfection.
In January, I had an intention to put myself out there at more art festivals and really stand as an art therapist. Then I saw a call for applications for Laura Inserra of Samavesha’s incredible vision: Art in Nature…The Nature of Art (happening this Sunday, September 21st from 11-5 in Redwood Canyon in Oakland). I am happy she is giving me the opportunity to do what I love by letting me join this event!
I will be guiding families in creating Vision Boards as well as launching myHeartykid the same day! They will be on sale at the “Art in Nature” store.
I am being a Hearty Kid. I am creating intentions and living the life I love! I keep writing down intentions, and the dreams I want to manifest. All of my doubts and fears start to surface: ”What if…what if, what if! What if no one likes it, it doesn’t work, people don’t understand it, or I can’t teach people how it works?” “What if no one buys it?” Lucky for me I surround myself with wonderful people who give me encouragement, so I keep moving forward through my fears.
I am celebrating being an entrepreneur, a therapeutic life coach and artist all in one! I am doing this with the support of those around me. I am living a life bigger than I ever thought I could.
Who do you have in your life that can encourage you to step out, create and live the life you have always dreamed of? What magical journey is awaiting you?
