You, my friend, are an easy-going and thoughtful Peace Lily.
You assume the role of the CONNECTOR in every circle you belong to. You love supporting people so much that you find it hard to say no.
It’s clear that you care deeply about your clients and your work. But you may be feeling exhausted from cheering everyone else on at the expense of your own fulfilment.
You are so close to building a business that allows you to PROVIDE FINANCIALLY for your family and be recognised for the LIFE-CHANGING RESULTS you get for your clients.
What you need are clear boundaries, not more b-grade clients.
Are you ready? Keep reading to learn more.
As a Peace lily, this is what a thriving business environment looks like for you.
A predictable and sustainable income gives you the peace of mind to say no to opportunities that don’t align with your business goals.
Consistently being able to express your creativity through the work you do.
Minimising scope creep and last-minute jobs so you can remain energised.
Clients who value your knowledge and expertise and respect your process and frameworks.
Time in your calendar to prioritise your self-care so you can show up as your best self.
To give your business the TLC it needs, try these ideas out.
Just because someone provides you with an opportunity doesn’t mean you have to take it. Being easy-going and a natural connector means you can easily end up doing the work of others. This leads to resentment and frustration.
Remember: you don’t have to say yes to a client request if it’s outside of your agreement or the project work, even if it will only take you 5-minutes.
If you find yourself wondering how you should respond, ask yourself: Is this request crucial to the project’s success? Do I need to be the one to action the request? What is the cost to me financially, energetically and time-wise if I say yes?
In most cases, you will be able to decline the request on the basis that it can be done by someone else or at another time. If you do need to act, charge for your expertise (not just your time).
There are clients out there who will pay for your FRAMEWORKS and PROCESSES. You need to trust in yourself and believe in your self-worth. And if your clients disagree with the way you work, it’s time to let them go.
Self-care is crucial to building a sustainable business. If you can’t remember the last time you went to yoga or read a book, you need to prioritise deep rest.
Set aside a few hours a week to relax and re-energise. Don’t judge yourself or set expectations for this time. Instead, enjoy the freedom to do as you please.
If you’re not already, start CELEBRATING YOUR ACHIEVEMENTS and sharing your wins. Sharing these successes will help you establish the know, like, and trust factor needed to attract dream clients and opportunities aligned with your business goals.
You’ll be surprised how quickly being your biggest cheerleader can lead to HIGH-PAYING CLIENTS and opportunities to share your expertise when you give yourself permission to voice what you want.

I’ve been embracing a multi-passionate approach to my career and life for over 14 years.
I’m a marketing coach, award-winning copywriter, published author, international speaker and teacher.
I support women in building ethical, sustainable, and profitable businesses without choosing between their passions, compromising their values to make money, and using unethical tactics.
The business world loves saying you should get in the head of your ideal client, niche down, and get strategic with your content.
But if you find yourself hesitating because you’re afraid you’ll lose clients or you want to work with different people, or you’re not an expert yet, I don’t blame you.
There’s a lot of bad advice when it comes to creating your services and marketing your business.
After running a successful service-based business, launching my own profitable programs and courses, starting a podcast, and being featured in the media, I’ve learned a thing or two about how people get trapped in client rut and a lousy content marketing cycle. And how to get them focused and growing again.
My job is to help you identify your niche, build a signature service, and launch with confidence, so you can finally work with dreamy clients and run a business that supports your multi-passionate lifestyle.
I’ve helped over 3,000 people across my programs and workshops, and I can help you too.
And because as a fellow plant owner, I know you’re dying to ask…I have 40 indoor plant babies. My first plant was a Boston Fern (It’s still alive eight years later!). I’m currently obsessed with my Pink Panther, and I’m holding out for the perfect Birds of Prey for my home office.
You’ve discovered your business’ plant persona… now what?
It’s time to grow a thriving business that supports YOUR multi-passionate lifestyle.
Financial freedom is only a season away if you start planting the seeds today.
Here’s how to do that…
