I just wasn’t getting it. IT? The “It” part was something I couldn’t figure out. I was working my butt off, to get my online and offline business off the ground, and I was spending way more money on the business than I was making.
As a spiritual entrepreneur, I wasn’t simply focused on the bottom line, though. I wanted to be making a difference in the world, and I wanted to be marketing in a way that was in integrity with my values and my spiritual self.
What am I Doing Wrong? My Business is Going Down, not Up!
When all my actions, intentions and practices were not producing the results that were anticipated, I began to feel somewhat anxious. What am I doing wrong? Why can’t I manifest and create this awesome life I want? Maybe I don’t understand the Law of Attraction? Perhaps I’m not engaging well with the marketing principles I have learned? What is going on God?
I share my personal story with you, because I think there may be others out there who have also been struggling and who might benefit from some things I’ve learned along the way.

The Going Gets Rocky
Sometime in 2008, I began to sense rough waters ahead. Although I’d been putting into practice much of what I had been learning the past few years about marketing, many of my projects and plans were not successful. The ease that I was creating in my mind through visioning was in sharp contrast with how things played out.
Because I saw that what I was teaching to my clients (which seemed to be working well for them!) was not working for me, I knew I needed to do something differently. One of the things I tell them, and you’ve heard it before, “keep doing the same things, and you’ll get the same results.”
So, I stopped myself in my tracks. Literally. I just sat down and prayed and surrendered. “Please God, show me what I’m doing wrong here. I thought I was doing what needed to be done, and I’ve been faithfully executing all the steps, but they haven’t led to the desired outcome. Show me a different way. What am I missing?”
I finally started to get some answers! But, just as I did, I lost more ground!
