I think anyone who goes into business for themselves can’t really imagine doing anything else. No matter when one makes the decision-straight out of college, after a really bad job, during a dramatic life change- there is usually one consistent driver behind the choice: a deep and nagging compulsion that we “have so much more to offer.”

Introducing Energy and why it matters

As successful business woman, I started to explore mediumship. A Medium is some one who can hear, see or understand loved ones that have passed to the other side.  These woman became my customers, we often bartered skills.  My personal exposure helped me become the heart center business woman I am meant to be.

What is heart centered energy?
Heart Centered Energy is living with intention from the heart.  What? 
Intentions from the heart allow for vulnerability and expansion.  What are the truest of intentions behind someone’s contribution to your business?  How do you find away to have a win/win out come for both you and your employee?

When we work from a heart centered energy, the point of view the energy is different.  The results are even better.

How do you get to Heart Centered Energy Intentions?  Faith, belief, intention, meditation, desire, nutrition and the understanding of environmental energy all play a part in creating a Heart Centered Energy Intention
