Stop Goals Becoming Fantasies with Clear Boundaries and Priorities

Stop Goals Becoming Fantasies with Clear Boundaries and Priorities

Goals are necessary to set the intention and direction in your Yoga biz. But without taking ACTION, they can be come comforting fantasies.

In this podcast I'm sharing how this has shown up in my life (hint: too many dating analogies!) and what we can all do to avoid it happening again.

 

Also, get yourself registered for the masterclass happening this weekend and get my personal support to create an action plan to have you reaching your Yoga biz goals THIS YEAR!

Reaching Your Yoga Biz Goals in 2018!

Reaching Your Yoga Biz Goals in 2018!

I don't know about you, but September can be a 'blah' month for me...

...it's been a long haul.

I've implemented and grown.

I've taken a bunch of trainings and learned loads.

I've completed the two retreats I offer for the year.

And I'm kind of feeling a little, like, 'I'm kind of done for the year'.

But here's the thing. NOW is actually the most powerful time of the year. YES people still want - AND NEED - Yoga. YES you can make that additional money in your biz this year. YES you can complete your projects. And YES you can prepare for 2019.

So this week on the Podcast I'm going to be talking all things 'Achieving Your Yoga Biz Goals'...

PS: Have you registered yet for the 'Achieve Your Yoga Biz Goals' Masterclass happening this weekend yet?

Here is the link to save your place: https://app.moonclerk.com/pay/27t5hqs0istk

This is going to be a 90-minute 'get your hands dirty' workshop where I'll be working with you on getting clear and focussed so that you finish out the year feeling amazing about your Yoga biz.

How I Filled My Classes: Inside Scoop + Templates!

Sometimes you just want someone else to tell you EXACTLY what to do, right?

GOOD NEWS!

This week on the podcast I'm going to tell you EXACTLY what to write in your emails, FB ads and website to sell out your classes.

I know it works because it's JUST what I did to call 16 people into my class (that had room for 14... but that's another podcast topic!)

And if you're looking for some virtual handouts, I've got you covered there, too.

Templates, swipe files and 'copy and paste' all done for you.

(You're welcome ;)

Here are the links to access the templates and swipe files from this training.

And here is a copy of the FB ad I used to promote the classes:

"The Abundant Yoga Teacher Retreat marked the start of my full-time career in yoga and it’s the best thing that I could have done. It’s given me clarity, focus and probably most importantly the confidence to go out there and really make a success of my yoga biz. Oh, and the setting, the food, the company is to die for!"

Embracing Ferocity in Yoga: 3 Quick Tips

Embracing Ferocity in Yoga: 3 Quick Tips

I remember the day in my corporate job when I KNEW it was time to leave.
 
I was hosting a meeting with some important folks from out of town. The meeting room I had booked was still full of people, running overtime.
 
I popped my head in the door, gently reminded them of the time and asked them to finish up.
 
Afterwards, the host of the late meeting came to see me.
 
‘Amy, I was really surprised by your behaviour today.’
 
‘Oh? Why is that’ I replied.
 
‘Well, couldn’t you just wait for us to finish? Did you have to ask us to leave?’
 
‘Yes. I did.’
 
‘Gee, Amy. I thought you were a Yoga teacher’ – she paused and looked down her nose at me – ‘I thought you’ve be more ZEN.’
 
ARGH!!!!
 
I mean, ARGH on SOOOO many levels!!!
 
These sorts of judgements about what Yoga is and what it means to be a Yogi drive me WILD.
 
What about you?
 
Have you ever been called ‘too intense’?
 
Or that you were too bold, clear, intentional or passionate?
 
That you should ‘chillax’?
 
This week on the podcast I want to reclaim ferocity in Yoga. It’s TIME!!!

PS: Speaking of FIERCE… The women who joined me on the Abundant Yoga Teacher Retreat have headed home to their SEVEN countries more emboldened, confident and ready to fiercely serve!
 
We’ve had a powerful week of retreat, rest, renewal and reignition!

Yoga Sales Funnels: What and Why

Yoga Sales Funnels: What and Why

Want to know the BIGGEST mistake I see Yoga teachers making when they are looking to fill up their teacher trainings, retreats and 1:1 classes?
 
Not enough preparation.
 
Now, I’m not talking marketing.
 
I’m not talking about planning the agenda, choosing the venue or planning out the pricing system.
 
I’m talking about preparing your Sangha by growing your numbers to fill your high end offers.
 
In sales, it’s called a ‘funnel’.
 
And I’m going to give you a 45-minute training live for this week’s podcast!

PS: We are in day 2 of the Abundant Yoga Teacher Retreat here in Thailand.
 

And we’re having a BLAST!!!
 
(Check out my daily details, vids and check in on Instagram @AmyYogaBizCoach)
 
In fact, we are having such a great time I’m putting things in place for our 2019 retreat.
 
We are hashing out the dates ATM but it’s going to be January and there will be a cray-cray good Super Early Bird rate.
 
If you’d like a heads up BEFORE I send out an email to everyone, send me an email back and I’ll put you on the ‘pre-invitation’ list!

How I Prepare For My Retreats + QnA

How I Prepare For My Retreats + QnA

I am starting to get VERY excited.

Why?

Because in just over 2 weeks I'll be flying to Thailand to prepare for the Abundant Yoga Teacher Retreat.

WOOT WOOT!

I've been teaching international retreats for over 9 years now and I've come a long way. Sure, I've added a zero to the end of my profit...

... but WAY more importantly, I no longer finish a retreat feeling exhausted, run down and hating on at LEAST one of the retreat participants.

Want to know my secrets?

I'm sharing all HERE... so come join in!

Five Tips to Reengaging Past Students

Five Tips to Reengaging Past Students

How to Maintain Motivation in Your Yoga Biz

How to Maintain Motivation in Your Yoga Biz

Even though I ADORE what I do for a living (and really sometimes can't believe its actually real!!!) there are still some rare days when I think, 'This is too bloody hard. I just want a 'real job'.

Or there are rare days when I watch Gordon Ramsay shows rather than write my newsletters.

Or there are rare days when I read a true crime book instead of practice Yoga.

Why?

Because sometimes its hard to be motivated, right?

Sometimes its easier - WAAAAAY easier - to be slack, sluggish and 'meh'.

And yet, when we get ourselves into this place, we aren't being in service, we aren't connecting to our higher nature and we aren't walking our path.

So what to do?

SHAZAM! Join me for this week's podcast for a dose of inspiration!

PS: Check out these gorgeous Yoginis!! These were the beautiful Yoga teachers who joined the Abundant Yoga Teacher Immersion in Sydney this week. Now these ladies were MOTIVATED!

There are still places left in the MELBOURNE Abundant Yoga Teacher Immersion happening NEXT WEEK. Collect your tickets here.
