Your Fear of Disgruntled Clients Might Be Because of This (For the Soulpreneurs I Know).

20689868_10159689437365131_2879865486501226649_o.jpg

Like any seasoned entrepreneur, who is not thin skinned or brand new to the world of serving people with products, services, and programs online, I have had my share of disgruntled clients.

Yep. It's true. I mean, of course it is.

Think you're going to satisify everyone all the time, especially in the beginning when you're learning how to master your energy and thereby who you attract as customers and clients?

Think AGAIN.

People have STUFF, triggers, expectations, projections — all of it, and you're going to find yourself on the receiving end of that, if you haven't already.

This is the stuff that few are talking about, you know?

Since the inception of my business, there have been times where I've denied refund requests, where I have canceled agreements because it was no longer a good fit (beyond rare), times when I have had to de-escalate my client's or former client's negatives emotion while maintining respect their voice and experience.

Anyway, what I want to share with you today about this, is this:

About half a year ago, I woke up and realized, "Holy sh*t, I have an on-going fear of unhappy clients, and it's because I have this OLD fear that I'm going to GET IN TROUBLE."

THIS IS OLD STUFF.

OLD.

AS.

DIRT.

I don't know what's to blame for this.

I'm sure the basic 90's childhood where I might've been fussed at, or faced the wooden spoon, been found out, or whatever the consequence was at the moment, is a part of it. I mean, I was SO afraid all the time — I was walking on egg-shells, anticipating something BAD happening all. the. time.

Here's the thing though: it really doesn't matter where you picked your fears up. It doesn't.

All that matters is that those fears don't win — that they don't rule your life and run the show and make you haaaate something that could otherwise be a total joy.

After this realization I had a mega shift in energy, and I started to ENJOY my business, and serving my people, on a much deeper level. It all just started to feel SO MUCH EASIER without all that 'omgosh what-if my program/thing isn't good enough [bites finger nails]’ kinda energy.

You know what also happened?

I started to attract, in higher volume, soulmate people who LOVE working with me through my products, services, and programs. Like one of my clients, @fabiflorinda (on IG) who was so relaxed about my recent need to reschedule with her, not once, but twice.

Soul. Mate. People. who get it. Who respect you. Who value you and your knowledge, skill, or mentorship.

It’s possible for it all to feel that good.

Big Love,

Trust and Relax Into the Cosmic Order of Things

jillian-anderson-blogpost-author-circle

If you haven't been feeling on-point and on fire with your business and career growth and goals at this time, if you feel like you're slacking, or not making enough progress, if you feel like you've dropped the ball (or two), and it doesn't feel good, I'm writing you today to let you know that's all okay, and that it's safe to let yourself off the hook.

You're motivated and driven, I get it. You have a list of your top priorities and you want to feel on top of 'em. I know what it's like because I'm right there with you.

There are times in life when the relationships in your life need extra attention, where you need extra time to process and feel, where the 'work' is largely interpersonal, and it's important to recognize that, even in business and career, it ALL comes back to relationships.

All of it.

I know on some level you know this, but that maybe you just need a reminder. When you're preparing to die (if you have time to reflect) are you going to ask yourself "did I hit my business goals for 2019?" or are you going to ask, "did I love as much as I could? Did I express that Love to the people in my life? Did I transcend the karma I was given to transcend? Did I fulfill my soul contracts?"

Soul contracts.

That's what business and career growth always boil down to anyway, for everyone, whether they realize it or not. If you're here reading this with me, you get that this thing we're called to create is deeper than goals and metrics.

You get that you're contracted to prompt transformation in the lives of others. That there are certain people out there WAITING to be stopped and struck by what you have to say. That your words, experiences, lives, and the art you make of it all is meant to reach others, shift others, show others.

It's as if you shook hands on it before incarnating, you know?

"Hey, on July 17, 2019, I agree to write this blog post, and you agree to read it" and BOOM — I give, you receive, and we're both shifted from that place, from that work.

Contract fulfilled.

It's easy to forget that relationships are what it's all about when you're thinking about what you can do to up your Instagram Stories game, double your email subscribers, write that next salespage, promote that thing, and serve the people inside your offerings!

It's easy to forget that this is true. It's easy to forget in the midst of all your inspired ideas, I know. But today, I'm here to remind you, that tending your relationships is important business, it IS business, and nothing is separate.

If you're feeling behind, you're not.
If you're feeling like a slacker, you're not.
If you're wondering when you'll feel 'on-top' again, decide to feel on-top right now by shifting your perspective, and allowing 'the work' that you've been doing, to be enough.

There is a cosmic order of things, and it's safe to trust and relax into that order now.

Big Love,

They Are Getting Featured, Published, and Paid, but You're 'Still Not There Yet'

Jillian at Dining Room table Writing 2018 .png

I recently read a really terrible book. It truly sucked in all the ways it could have. 

Beneath the catchy title, it was dry and boring. I didn’t like the style or the tone. It had all these extra words it didn’t need, and it was super repetitive — NOT in a good way. 

The person who wrote this book? 

I have seen him featured on many a big podcast. I’ve seen his interviews all over YouTube. I haven’t watched a ton of them, but the title of his book caught my attention, so I bought it. 

Before I go on, full disclaimer: I’m one of the people online who is committed to promoting what she’s into/what she believes in, opposed to writing about what she doesn’t like, ESPECIALLY when it involves another person’s creative work and in this case, livelihood. 

So, I’m NOT going to tell you who the author of this book is because It really doesn’t matter, and it’s irrelevant to the message I want to deliver today.

What I need you to know is EXACTLY how I felt as I started reading chapter two of this not-so-good and poorly written book.

I felt…

A RISING WITHIN ME. 

A RISING OF ENERGY AND POWER AND DESIRE AND KNOWING.

A fiery feeling that spoke three little words: why not me?

Why. Not. Me?

If this man can write this shitty book, and publish it, and be all over the internet with it, and have people buying it, or at least buying into the idea of it, WHY NOT ME?

Why. Not. Me?

As someone who has been writing her whole life, and someone who has let multiple book projects die in the computer graveyard, and as someone who feels very deeply called, WHY NOT ME? 

Why = what’s the reason?

Not = I don’t have...

Me = what I feel called to do/be/have? 

I know you have moments of this, too. 

When you’re scrolling Instagram, and that person who is in your industry, who has a similar job description or calling as you, has epic amounts of followers and comments and maybe she’s getting a book deal now, etc etc and you pause, you examine, and before you scroll on, you think:

I’m talented. I’m skilled. I’m educated. I’m called.

And whether you realize it or not, a part of you is speaking, and she’s saying: WHY NOT ME? 

I’m going to now tell you WHY. NOT. YOU. 

As in, why it hasn’t been you. Why it hasn’t been you YET...

It hasn’t been you because you haven’t fully claimed it as yours. 

It hasn’t been you because you’ve been dancing on the edge of your work, instead of DEEP IN THE CENTER, IN THE FIRE OF IT, instead of just saying, THIS, this is what I want to do and thank you very much. 

It hasn’t been you because you haven’t reached out with both hands and TAKEN IT, maybe because you’ve been taught not to take, or maybe because you can’t imagine that you CAN HAVE IT.

It hasn’t been you because you’ve decided not to be ready.

It hasn’t been you because you’ve been telling yourself that you’re not there yet!

It hasn’t been you because you’ve been some-daying it. Some day this and some day that.

It hasn’t been you because you’ve made it this BIG IMPOSSIBLE HARD-TO-REACH THING when in fact it is the most natural extension of you, and the natural next progression of you...

It hasn’t been you…

Because… 

You haven’t allowed it to be You.

That book I bought that sucked?

It wasn’t a waste of money (even though I barely made it through chapter two). It may have been the most valuable book I have ever purchased, because it prompted the moment I decided to claim it. 

It was the moment I decided — I AM following through. I WILL finish this current book project and I WILL publish it and I WILL be accountable to myself.

And if someone thinks it sucks that’s cool, it won’t matter, because I will go to sleep proud of myself while knowing I did what I was called to do.

Big Love,
