"I'm a pretty self-sufficient, self-guided person though my answers have often been hidden within excuses and old beliefs, which were frustrating and paralyzing. Reggie helped me see through all the rhetoric and pointed me towards my heart's desire, using a combination of what's written on my own hands and her extraordinary gift of divining the truth. I never would have had the courage to dub myself an "artisan" without Reggie's unique support. Thank you from the bottom of my artsy heart, Reggie."

Is it Time for a Tune Up?
By Reggie Odom
Have you checked your authenticity, aliveness and connection meter lately?
Some years ago when I first started coaching, my passion was just that - authenticity, aliveness and connection. That’s what I wanted for everyone. I still do.
I had seen many of my friends trading the precious hours of their lives for a paycheck doing work - or in a system - that crushed their individuality and dulled their senses.
While I was a stress management consultant and trainer, I was surprised and saddened as I heard over and over again how many people hated their jobs. They lived for Friday afternoon from the time they came to work on Monday morning. They were trading 5 days of their life every week for the security of a paycheck and benefits and believed they had no other choice.
In every workshop or training I delivered, one of more of the participants would be inspired at some point during the day, reconnect with a dream, and share it. Their dream often involved an innate gift or talent of theirs. Some would sing. In one workshop, a man even sang an aria after lunch.
Sometimes, I invited participants to speak for 5 minutes on something they were passionate about. At first they were reluctant and timid to speak in front of the group, until they began to speak the truth of their passion.
During this 5 minutes they were transformed. Their faces came alive and their eyes lit up. Once they began speaking, the attention of everyone in the room was riveted on them.
That is the impact of authenticity, aliveness and connection.
It is the kind of impact that authenticity, feeling fully alive and being connected has on you and the people around you. It is your natural magnetism and it is what you must keep alive to thrive in your business, and to stand out naturally so that your ideal clients can find you.
For some entrepreneurs their businesses become deadening jobs. Some are holding themselves back from the life-changing business in their hearts. And others are barely making ends meet.
They have lost touch with the passion that brought them to owning their own business. They are not expressing the gifts that they were born to let shine in the world. And they are trying to serve clients that are not ideal for them.
Don’t let this happen to you. And if it has, start doing something different today!
Here are three ways to turn up your dial of authenticity, aliveness and connection:
1. Reconnect with the passion that brought you into business. What is it?
2. Get clear about the gift you must express consistently in your life and in your business to feel fully alive. This will probably be the gift that will cause the greatest growth in you and your business. What action will you take in the next 24 hours to get that gift out in the world?
3. Get honest about who your ideal client really is! You can’t help everyone, you’re not meant to. Working with your ideal clients will bring out the best in you. Go through your past and present clients. Are they ideal? What makes them so, or what makes them not?
Are you ready to bring you and your business to life? Turn up the dial of your authenticity, aliveness and connection.
