One of the most empowering things about being a business owner is that you can add to and subtract from your business as you go along. If something’s not working, great! Change course. If you have a new interest, find a way to add it to the mix. As a soulpreneur, you can be guided by your higher self to create the business of your dreams.
Since lightworkers have a passion for bringing healing to the world, it’s no surprise that many would be interested in coaching. There are many different types of coaches. If you’re good with money, you can be a money coach. If you’re good with relationships, you can be a relationship coach. If you love the Law of Attraction, you can be a Law of Attraction Coach.
Doreen Virtue, known for her work with angels, has introduced another type of coaching certification; she’s training people to be Assertiveness Coaches. One of the biggest problems that some people face is assertiveness, or standing up for themselves. Many lightworkers also have problems with assertiveness. If you’ve ever had a hard time saying ‘no,’ or you’ve allowed people to trespass over your boundaries, you could probably benefit from doing some inner work on building up your assertiveness.
Virtue is a former psychotherapist, and she describes a lack of assertiveness as a tendency to give one’s power away to others. We may give our power away by going along with someone’s wishes even if they go against our own because we want someone to like us. We may give our power away by refusing to stand up to someone who did something hurtful to us because we don’t want to hurt their feelings. As lightworkers, we may give our power away by failing to charge what we’re worth because we’re afraid that clients and customers won’t support us.
Whatever reasons we have for giving our power away, the end result is that it leaves us feeling ineffective and it drains our energy.
Virtue’s course, which takes place over four weeks in a series of video lessons, not only teaches you the basics of assertiveness and provides tips on increasing your own assertiveness, but it focuses on helping you to bring that lesson to others as an Assertiveness Coach. As an Assertiveness Coach, you can help others to become more self-confident and bring more of their personal power into their day-to-day interactions. You can also add assertiveness training to your other services. For example, you can provide advice and coaching on assertiveness to your Reiki clients or give the recipients of your psychic readings lessons that can help them in their everyday lives.
As a lightworker, your goal is to help your clients to live happier and healthier lives. Assertiveness training is yet another way to make a difference.
