I shared a behind the scenes on Facebook about “This is why having confidence in who you are is important to your business and what it has to do with #branding!”

I talked about how for 14 years my business life has been about: Being true to you, making an impact, and building a successful business. My product and services have changed, but my purpose has remained the same.

Did I always know what my purpose looked like? Absolutely not! I did listen to the call that was coming from the depths of my soul and took action.

I share with you how my one brand story was finally created and how it has pivoted. However, you still see a consistency in my brand because I’m listening from within!

In the video, I take you on my journey of my ideal client for building my brand story from just the career woman who doesn’t like her job because she feels underpaid, undervalued, overworked, and not feeling respected. She wants more freedom, recognition, and more money. She knows her job isn’t aiding her in creating her impact, things won’t change at the J.O.B. and she knows she has to take matters into her own hands. Then I shared with you how I pivoted twice.

It’s not always about starting over in your business.

Not spoken about in the video, here are some additional things.

Doing my own self-development, accountability and paying attention I discovered I work with these women’s heart, soul, body, and mind. I could no longer ignore those other parts. I had to allow more of myself in my business. Why you ask because I felt like I was being held back and restricted in my business with how I served clients. Continuing to give more of myself allowed me to be more authentic. So I stopped denying my woo side (that was giving me the stare) and incorporated it into my business. I can’t tell you what a relief that was. Now everyone gets my #DataWoo, and I don’t have to hold anything back or feel awkward in my own business.

I was writing one night and looked at what everyone was saying and tada they were speaking about the confidence I had the confidence they wanted that. DING DING The tangible thing appears.

Aha!!

Confidence never crossed my mind because I overlooked that these women could have a confidence issue. You see, these women were already confident, but they wanted more. Just because we are confident in one area of our lives doesn’t mean that we are confident in every are. There were signs all around me, but now I read and follow the signs.

It was showing up because they weren’t solid in their decision making and they commented on how I was in mine. These ladies were commenting on how I had such conviction in who I was, yet they remained silent about themselves. They liked the fact that I wasn’t swayed by what others wanted, and focused on what was right for me. How I even showed up and owned my missteps, prices, services and they wished they had them.

Your business is about you! In order to fulfill your purpose, you have to know who you are and how you were created. You know my belief! “You were created to be a solution or to create a solution to a problem, it’s up to you to discover what that is, and that you were given tools to do so.”

Our Neighborhood, The Army Brat’s perspective.

by

I saw a post by one of my friend’s who is also a Military Brat and the things we’ve missed growing up.

I can understand feeling cheated out of living in the same neighborhood forever. Having the same people with you from elementary through high school.  The feeling of safety, stability, dependability of a tribe and foundation is packed well into that. Having that history is a treasure. (Traditionally)

We Army Brats have something too that binds us together. We may not always be the same identical person the entire time. BUT we cross paths multiple times in life. We honor each other for this journey we have endured and that just creates an understanding into a part of who we all are.

This is what we do have!

We identify with having to “Make it no matter what!

We understand what packing for a deployment looks like.

We know how to hug someone for dear life and scream in our heart, “don’t leave me, I’m sorry, I love you” and they still have to leave.

We understand the roller coaster of emotions from parents being deployed.

The taking parents for granted and then wishing, hoping and praying for their return to be flooded with gratitude and relief when they return.

We know what it’s like to live a life you have no control over and still be sane in the brain.

We know how to come together and support others.

When I see a movie of a homecoming I instantly get flashbacks and flooded with emotions and most of the time leave the room.

We know the smell of shoe polish, and what a good spit shine looks like. – Taking pride in your appearance.

We know how proud it feels to see our parents in a Class A uniform.

We can instantly bond knowing where we were in the morning when the To Reveille the Bugle Call plays & our location in the evening as it blows the Retreat to shut the base down! I hear the song in a movie or video and instantly but subconsciously pay attention.

We know how to treasure relationships because we don’t know how long they will last.

We know the sound of kids playing on the playground behind overseas housing.

We’ve experienced carrying laundry and groceries up flights of stairs and developed methods to do so.

We know to bend down when living in temporary housing overseas.

We have traveled more than most people will ever travel in their life.

Our Army is our neighborhood and we had the opportunity of a traveling hood! Even when you meet someone and they say they are a military brat, they are instantly cool and you know you have someone you can identify with!

We were chosen to experience more of the world in a different way! We are and will always be proud military brats! To this day I still ask or search for people whom we spent time together.

For all of you whom I have crossed paths with I thank you for being in my life because you became part of my story.

One of the reasons why I am as strong and resilient and versatile is because I’m an #ArmyBrat and to that I say Hooah!

Starting Over in your business could look like this!

by

Starting over sucks! It sucks when you have to do it in your business, anywhere really. That’s how we feel right?

I remember hearing or seeing a tabloid about how when Prince Harry gets married for the first time, this will not be Meghan Markle’s first wedding. I remember thinking,  “SO WHAT! It didn’t work the first time. At least she was able to pick herself up and was open, vulnerable and willing to love again for the opportunity. Look where it landed her”!

So I say this to you as an entrepreneur whose first business failed, or didn’t do as well as you would have liked it to.

What if…
This royal wedding of
Meghan Markle and Prince Harry
is what starting over in your business could look like for you?

This is what you need to do:
• Stop beating up yourself up for it not working the first time.
• Get over people talking because they always will. When you succeed, they will still be talking, they will still be in the same place you left them on your first attempt.
• Move past people not supporting you, there are new people to support 10x more than the last time.

So that you can: 
• See what part you played, and how to make sure you learn from it.
• Be open to a new opportunity that will require things to be done a different way.
• Make a new commitment to do better, get a new support system, and never quit!

Kourtney Coleman compares Meghan Markle and Prince Harry Wedding to starting over in your business

Stay committed to your purpose!
Your passion will change
but your purpose was the very thing you were created to do!

 

You weren’t created for a purpose and not equipped to fulfill it! I always say you were created to be the solution or create the solution to a problem. It’s up to you to discover what that is! Discover how you were created to function. Build your business with ease and be authentic while doing it.

YOUR PURPOSE WASN’T MADE FOR YOU TO TRY AND BE LIKE SOMEONE ELSE. YOUR PURPOSE WAS MADE FOR YOUR MOST HIGHEST SELF!
GO BECOME HER!

You will never know if your story could end up like this if you quit. The one thing I’ve learned. The women that want to work with me are more committed to their purpose than an attempt to fulfill it.

When your abilities work for you

by

forbeswoman-kourtney coleman

It jumped right out at me, I was so glad I watched this video.
CLICK THE IMAGE ABOVE OR THE LINK BELOW TO WATCH
Marne Levine, Instagram’s COO on How To Find Your Voice – And Own It

You always hear me speak about your Innate Core Values and Abilities!
When I saw this video, I believe I spotted Marne’s right away when she started describing herself and how she performed.
According to Taylor Protocol’s we all have our preferred way of giving our contribution to the world. It’s what we do by default and on autopilot.

Marne knows that her Personal Power is an executor by nature, she get’s stuff done quickly. While also noting she needed to slow down and focus more on the upfront work before taking action. This is the classic description of what we call the Builder’s Contribution. They just need to know what needs to be done and they take off to go and do it!

marne levine-kourtney colemanWhat was great for Marne, was that she had leaders who spotted this, were able to help her see where there was room for improvement and supported her. With Marne’s personal power, she will always be happy in a position where she could take action and make things happen. If you put her in a job where she did not have the power to take action and make things happen, she would be miserable. Marne would end up hating her job. She would start to hate going to work. She would spend a lot of time thinking about what she would be doing outside of work instead of being focused and engaged. Does this sound familiar? Maybe not for you but for someone you know.

For this very reason, it’s important to know your Personal Power before applying for a job or going in for an interview. I would like you to consider that not being motivated to go to work or at work can be tied to not working in your Personal Power. Feeling like the most powerful piece of who you are, the very essence of you, your reason for existing isn’t allowed to operate or express itself is not a way to live. The feeling that what you have to offer isn’t valued or utilized on a daily basis can become a significant challenge when you spend the majority of your days there. You will begin to feel unfulfilled and frustrated, and nobody wants that or to feel that way! When you understand your Personal Power, you can identify situations that are the right opportunities for you that will allow you to shine at what you do naturally.

Well, how do you discover this Innate Ability of yours, your Personal Power? It’s simple; you just take the Core Values Index Assessment ™ (CVI Assessment™ ) by Taylor Protocols. It will measure your innate abilities in a 10-minute assessment. There is a short video that you will want to watch from your computer before taking the assessment. The CVI has a 97.7% retest rate (Per retesting as of Oct. 2017) to measure your innate abilities.

Click the link to take the assessment and get your complimentary partial report as well as connect with me on a Discovery Celebration Call that I hold twice a month!
On this call, I want to celebrate with you what you discover about your Personal Power.
I can’t wait to hear what you discovered!

Until Next time,
Stay true to the real you!
Kourtney Coleman
As a certified Taylor Protocols Practitioner, I help career women bring their Personal Power into the workplace in an authentic way.
