Welcome Home

Entrepreneur, deep down you’ve always known you were meant for something more in this life.  And even now, even with a business to your name, saying that out loud might still make you a little uncomfortable.  Because you care about people.  And who are you to want to be ‘more?’

 

Yet you’re called. And anything else is out of alignment. Whether you want to double your revenue, increase your visibility, make a bigger impact with your current clients, or become more self-expressed in your marketing, the stirring within you is real. It’s Truth.  And when it starts to show up, entrepreneur, it won’t go away.

 

 

This is both great news, and a bummer. The great news?  You can’t screw up your Truth, it will be right there waiting. The bummer? Those nudgings won’t go away until you honor them.  And that journey just may be uncomfortable… AND, the adventure of a lifetime! Welcome to Aligned Entrepreneurs. We Believe…

We Believe:

 

That we each have a PERSONAL CURRENCY.

 

It’s the energy we are dwell in and exchange, in the present moment, by choice or by habit. In our conversations, in our marketing, in our business practices, and in our daily life we are giving who we are to others and allowing them to receive what they will. Some currencies build us, some deplete us. Mastering our currency is the source of everything.

 

That a life lived in Alignment with your Truth is deeply fulfilling.

 

There is a way of working that comes naturally, inspires us and lights us up. It’s our Truth, and it’s personal, received through intuition and ever-increasing awareness. When we deny it, we feel empty or create undue struggle. When we embrace it, life flows. And embracing what is true for an Aligned Entrepreneur often requires great courage. We set a new standard for freedom, in the face of questioning glances from the onlookers.

 

In making powerful decisions, consistently, from a place of love with a belief in abundance.

 

When it’s time to hire support, we do it. When it’s time to make a deposit on an event venue, we make it. When it’s time to cut ties with that toxic relationship, we cut them. When it’s time to raise our rates, fire a client, or step on a bigger stage, with grace and ease, we make it happen. Shaking, and maybe even about to throw up, we make that move toward love and freedom for ourselves and others.

 

That we have the power to create our own economy.

 

We recognize that we get to choose to who we want to work with as clients, team members, and vendors, and we love that. It’s the flow of money in and out, from people we love to people we love (INCLUDING ourselves!) that drives us to increase our quality of life and that of those with whom we resonate. We know that this movement of money in alignment with our value system will change the world.

 

In a balanced approach to business.

 

Not the type of balance that means that we’re resentful of our work if it takes too long… that’s just an alignment issue. But as Aligned Entrepreneurs, we balance: Marketing + Mindset. Structure + Freedom. Faith + Action. Pushing Beyond + Abundant Grace. Practicality + Spirituality. There is no right way, it’s about the currency that will work for you in the moment. In Truth, when we’re in alignment these things no longer require balance, they just are. But we’re human, and sometimes we forget.

About Darla

I have been Type-A-driven, and totally chilled, and everything in between on my quest to find my own happy place… a place in which I can make the biggest difference with the least amount of that which feels like work. And I tell ya, Alignment is awesome. And it’s not a “one and done” kinda deal, so don’t get your hopes up! In my household, growing up, I learned a few things. Stay out of the way, give people what they want, never risk being wrong, take responsibility for the happiness of others, and be smart to get love. A fantastic formula for becoming an overachieving corporate engineer at prestigious Procter & Gamble! Promotion here I come! Enter my Truth, stage left…more…

Becoming increasingly uncomfortable with spending excessive hours trying to figure out how to get ‘consumers’ to consume more flavored-colored-sugar-water, I began to wonder about my something more. I was 25 at the time, an overachiever to the core ☺. I began to believe that the way we humans were doing life was somehow misguided. And the moment I let myself think it, the evidence poured in! (Ever been there?)

I developed a faith in being over doing, and love over fear. And quickly learned that believing something and operating in alignment with it are two very different things!

After close to 10 years of dabbling in my principles and consuming self-help books by the bucket loads (constantly updating my friends on all the things I thought they should know), death and divorce in the same summer forced my hand.

In the midst of so much change and loss (I was doing time in my corporate cubical when my stepdad passed), I determined I just had to know – could it be true that we humans could do work we loved, that made a difference, and that was perfectly designed for us, that gave us freedom to be where we want, and still make money?

And at that point my daydreams about business became decisions about business, and the rest is history.

I wish it were that simple! I had so much to learn.

I could barely bring myself to receive $100 for a 3-month coaching package! It was easy to take money from The Man. But fellow man? Not so simple. Not mention I really didn’t know where to find a client unless it involved a 6-7 figure media budget.

I was a coach without a coach and quickly learned that that was a bad idea.

Luckily, the Universe had my back, always leading me to the right resource and the right awareness at the right time (of course I had to listen!). I hired an amazing coach/mentor, and then another. I studied Universal law, which I found to be much more effective than your average ‘self help’ book. And I began to get on planes, to travel to retreats and events to be around other entrepreneurs, and change what used to be true about my environment, and most importantly, my belief in myself.

And in this process I recognized that all of life is a gamble, and I if I were going to bet, I would be best served to bet on myself, because as scary as that may be, I know who I am.

I made decisions that no one in my life understood, but I knew in my gut that they were right for me. I’ve learned that at every stage our business (and personal) growth, these type of direction-setting choices will be required. From investing in the right support before we appear ready, to designing our offerings to be disruptive in our market, we must be ready to be uncomfortable, and even surprise and disappoint the ones we love.

I stopped spending time with people who liked to complain – and some of them were very close to me. I moved three times to continue put myself into an environment that was aligned with who I was as I grew. I designed and developed the programs that were in my heart to do, even when people were telling me “I couldn’t” do it. That no one would buy it. That it needed to be different.

I learned to ‘give my substance where it can do most good’ and created the boundaries needed to do so – whether it was doing less and being more, or redesigning my offerings to be more aligned with ME and MY PEOPLE.

And as began to honor my intuition, and exercised my faith that all was ALWAYS unfolding perfectly, my business would grow, my ideas would flow, and I could hold a bigger and bigger space for my clients to transform.

And here’s the fun part.

I came to realize that the LESS I actually DO, the more effective I am. A perpetual challenge for the Type A overachiever. When we operate by principles of Alignment, the value we deliver is about more than just time… and that is a humanity-shifting breakthrough if I’ve ever seen it!

And alignment never ends. In the past 6 months alone, I’ve rebranded my business to be more alignment, experienced more fear around my goals than ever before (and got on stage anyway), hired and fired my significant other, moved offices, purchased a home, and identified some very big ways in which I’ve still been hiding in my business

And I still made over a half-million dollars. And growing. . Around every corner I ask for and receive more of my TRUTH and I step into it with faith. And you can too. I know it, or you wouldn’t be reading this.

On a personal note, I live in Denver with the love of my life (FINALLY!) and my dog Monty. I love to hike and bike and enjoy the great out doors. I’m a part-time yogi and while I’ve had lots of creative pursuits in my life, these days my business is my biggest source of self-expression. I LOVE it, in all of its up downs and joys and challenges. It’s the worlds greatest adventure.
