I always knew I wanted to be a creator.
I always wanted to create stuff.
As a child, I was always writing and performing or starting my own restaurant or selling my own jewelry or collecting money for charity.
I was always busy doing something.
And I really enjoyed it!
But …. then the grown-ups started to meddle in my creative spirit. And I learned:
I have to finish stuff.
I couldn’t just start something new each week.
If I wanted to be successful, I had to put in a LOT more time and effort.
Being successful takes HARD work. You can’t “just” create something.
No, it has to be “REAL.” It has to MEAN something. It can’t be JUST for fun!
There has to be thought and effort behind it oh and a PLAN. Don’t forget the F*ing plan.
I couldn’t make money being creative. I had to start a serious study and get a “normal” and decent paying job.
JUST BE NORMAL.
Whatever you do is fun in your own time, but if you want to make a serious living from it, you have to adapt, be real, be realistic.
Not just wing it.
Well, F*ck me.
Do you know how many time and money this so-called “good advice” cost me?
Not to mention the years and years of therapy that I had to follow to get some connection with who I really AM again. With that amazing creative spirit within me?
You know, sometimes I STILL hear the voices in my head from EVERYONE who is telling me that I CAN’T live and create just IN THIS present moment.
That I have to have a P.L.A.N.
That I have to look ahead.
And do you know what happens then?
My Soul slowly dies.
My creativity crumbles.
My money flow dries out.
Do you know when I am the happiest?
If I just open my laptop and ask myself: What do I REALLY feel like doing RIGHT now? And just DO that.
Create different things each week.
Launch a new online program each week.
Just off the cuff. No preparation, no “rules,” no nothing. Just ME creating and creating and just doing fun things.
Just ME connecting with people.
Just me doing other fun stuff like performing a song on my events or my friends’ events.
Or ALL kinds of other crazy ideas that just want to come out the coming years. But I don’t know what they are because I can’t see in the future haha.
I have solemnly sworn last month that I will never, ever, ever see myself as a “proper” entrepreneur.
Because I am NOT.
I am a crazy creator.
I am JUST here to have FUN.
And to ENJOY life.
And share that vibe with others.
Because you know what?
I make even more money when I create that way haha. How freaking funny is that?
I experimented a LOT with different coaches the last couple of years.
EVERY single coaching program or live coaching I followed that revolved around strategy and planning and marketing I quit halfway through.
And last month I realized: that is JUST not for me.
If I follow my own alignment and have a coach that is 100% focussed on alignment, my business and I THRIVE.
If I feel I have to …
Offer my clients more structure.
Put together a serious marketing funnel.
Finally, make a plan and a long-term goal because I can’t just wing it.
…. My income drops.
And my happiness also OF COURSE. Because money follows joy!
And if I let it all go again and just CREATE and focus on what makes me happy.
My income grows again.
So I made a commitment to FLOW and JOY and CREATION.
I knew how this worked ALL along.
I have done it ALL along.
I did the same things when I just started my business, and I STILL did the same thing in the months I made more than 50.000 euros. AND I will do EXACTLY the same thing if I am making more then 100.000 a month or even a million a month (if I ever get there haha, and if not, that’s cool too, because it’s all about FUN anyway 🙂 )
So I stay true to the coach who wants that too — the Amazing Brigitte van Tuijl. Coaches came and went, but she is STILL there. She is coaching me for almost 3 years. I just LOVE it that she knows me so well. I see SO many people “coach hopping,” and of course, I have experimented too, but I am also pretty loyal. It just WORKS. If someone knows me and still helps me to grow, WHY NOT? DON’T EVER change what works haha.
She sees my potential.
She KNOWS me. I can’t HIDE with her.
She is there for me, unconditionally.
And she helps me to align with my soul time and time again.
And I REALLY had to invest in the relationship to come to this place, but I am SO freaking glad, happy and thankful that I did because it brought me SO many beautiful things!
She builds her “business” the same way. A little bit different, of course, because we are all different. But from flow and joy and SOUL and there are not that many people who REALLY do that. Some SAY they do, but they don’t. But she DOES!
And together we gave a free call about how we all do it. How we create from flow and still make a lot of money.
How we create from trust because there just IS NO PLAN.
And OMG, that was an AMAZING call. We went on for almost 2 hours, haha, because we wanted to answer everyone’s questions 🙂
— I help powerful creators, creative entrepreneurs, influencers, coaches, healers, leaders of the new era and everyone who wants to make money just by being themselves to Magically Manifest their life and business.
I teach them to live in accordance with the universal laws of Creation to effortlessly attract more clients, more money, more creativity and above all more freedom, connection to source, flow, fun, ease, and love.
Often they feel they want to do things in their own way and break out of all the boxes society has created for them. Somewhere deep down they feel they are meant for greatness and I help them to discover and express that greatness within them AND make money doing that.
I helped ten thousands of people really understand manifestation and get amazing results. You can get access to my FREE online program: The ULTIMATE Manifesting program HERE.
