Why You Need to Start Saying “No” More In Your Wellness Business

Why You Need to Start Saying “No” More In Your Wellness Business

October 14, 2020

Saying “no” is often a challenge for empaths and healers, especially when we are offering wellness services to others. Whether it’s fear of not making enough money, lack of trust in ourselves and our abilities, or simply wanting to be of service to as many people as possible, saying yes to everyone and every opportunity actually does us and our clients more harm than good. And it is a common mistake that I see healers in business make all the time!

The problem with saying yes to everything is that it often leads to working with clients that may not be a best fit for our services, feelings of severe overwhelm and burnout, and sometimes even leaving the work all together.

I think learning how to say “no” is one of the most powerful ways we can ensure we are providing the best possible services to the world and that we are supporting the clients that can best benefit from our gifts.

In this episode I share my personal journey with learning how to say “no” and why I think it is such an important tool for you to learn too!

Why Your Mindset is Your #1 Most Important Tool in Your Wellness Business Right Now

Why Your Mindset is Your #1 Most Important Tool in Your Wellness Business Right Now

October 7, 2020

Being an empath + a healer and being a business person are two different things, two very different ways of being. And I know that many of my listeners are trying to figure out how to blend these two identities in a healthy way... I know this because I myself have personally have struggled with this in the past and I see it happening frequently in a variety of wellness fields.

Whether you are working a side gig, starting a wellness business, or have been in business for a while, as a healer you are in a unique position of having to balance caring for others while also caring for yourself. This can be a hard balancing act to manage, and you must have the right tools in place in order to do it successfully.

This topic is very near and dear to my heart because I feel like many healers struggle in business, which is a shame because if we burn out, we can’t help others. 

We often put others' needs before our own, we tend to undersell ourselves, and we overwork ourselves to help as many people as we can.

But this is not a sustainable way of operating a business. We have a high burnout in the field of mental health, for example, and I believe it is because we are not taught the tools for sustainable, life-long work as healers.

I believe the first step towards creating a life and business that nourishes you, feels rewarding, and prevents burnout is establishing the right mindset.

It sounds so simple, but it really is everything.

So in this episode I will explain why I believe mindset is your #1 most important tool in your wellness business right now, now matter what stage of business you're in, as well as how you can begin establishing the right mindset today.

Why Diets Suck…And How You Can Live a Life Free From Dieting and the Scale

Why Diets Suck…And How You Can Live a Life Free From Dieting and the Scale

September 16, 2020

Let’s be honest...most of us have tried some kind of diet at some point in our lives. And most often, it is to lose weight or achieve some kind of body ideal that we have set in our minds.

But dieting can easily send us on a track to disordered eating, negative body image and poor self-esteem. When we fixate on foods being good or bad, numbers on the scale, and the never ending quest to lose “just 5-10 pounds,” it can lead to feelings of depression, anxiety, and even trauma.

The diet industry makes millions of dollars by marketing unattainable standards of thinness to women that are based on western beauty standards and completely dismiss healthy living and eating habits based on ethnic, religious or other cultural traditions. And when we have these images delivered to us constantly through tv, social media, and print, it is very easy to develop a negative with food and the scale.

Join Jamie and her guests, Tonya and Tracy as they explore how you can push back against the diet fad industry, find peace with food, and develop a more positive relationship with your body.

Tonya Beauchaine and Tracy Vazquez have been friends for a decade, they have been through ups and downs, weight gains and weight losses together.

Waiting to be a certain size, lose a certain amount of weight, or waiting to look a certain way. They have conversations about life, weight, Intuitive Eating, Health at Every Size, the pressure to be thin, and live up to these standards of society. Tonya is a certified Intuitive Eating coach Health at Every Size® advocate and nutrition counselor. She's working to break the mold of who and what a nutritionist is. She works with others to find freedom in their relationship with food. Her favorite part of working with clients is helping them set up an Intuitive Kitchen. Tracy is a body image coach. She helps women find confidence in the bodies they have. She's no longer waiting to be a certain size but accepting her body the way it is. She's on a mission to help women feel confident and comfortable right here and now.
