    Ahh, yes. I needed to hear this A today. I’ve been feeling a little discouraged myself and when I have setbacks, I tend to let it bring me down more than I’d like to admit. I am definitely working on allowing yself to receive more…. Prehaps you could expand on that aspect in another video?

    Hi Chela, thanks so much this was a great A to a great Q. I definitely resonate with all of those things. It’s so important to recognise flow elsewhere and be patient, that is one thing I have learnt in the last 12 months of business! I realise I’ve started to say ‘No, I got this’ more the last few months because I want to feel independent and like I have the money or time or whatever to do it. It’s a good reality check – I am being given what I need, just not in the way that I want it 😉 XO

    You are so spot on with your answers, covering all the bases with inquiry options, as opposed to the ‘this is how you have to do it’!

  4. Rochelle says:

    love it – all 3 points, starting with what is working/ flowing all the way through practical assessment of current marketing and target market. Your thinking is clear and presentation very organized, salient and succinct. I’m inspired, Chela – thank you!

  5. Maria says:

    Thank you for this message. I can see that ALL of this needs some attention. I know I do not have the clarity that is required as well I do not allow in easily. I am a “I can do it myself” kind of personality.
