Here we sit down with Lea to learn more about her journey as an entrepreneur.

Q. Tell us a little more about your journey as an entrepreneur — how did you get started? What inspired you?

Lea: I always knew I wanted to be an entrepreneur and thought I would open a med spa with my nursing degree one day. But somewhere along the way, I became obsessed with personal growth & I realized the path of hypnosis & coaching was my life purpose.

So, I decided to quit my job without any paying clients & make the leap. Within the first year, we were hitting 6 figures & have continued on in expanding our global brand.

They say that if you do what you love you’ll never feel like you worked a day in your life & as someone who was heavily investing their time in the personal development world, it just made sense. I can confirm it’s true!! Work doesn’t feel like work for me, I’m in love with what I do & couldn’t imagine a life doing anything else.

Q. What are your long-term goals in business? Paint a vision for the future

Lea: I see my business continuing to expand globally, building a community that supports business owners in unlocking their truest expression. Liberating women in owning their shadows and shame & turning them into their greatest superpower, unique edge/ brand voice & million dollar ideas.

Spreading the gift of hypnosis & embodiment works to help entrepreneurs create wealth from the inside out & long term having a non-profit to make hypnosis accessible to more people in this world who could change their whole lives with just a few sessions of this potent work.

Q. What motivates you?

Lea: Happiness, impact & the journey.

Q. What business-related book has inspired you the most, or, what is your favourite book?

Lea: My favorite books are the power of now, the mastery of love & wild.

Q. What is the most memorable thing you’ve done since you started your business?

Lea: I utilize hypnosis, breath & somatic work to alchemize my energetic blocks & help me align to the identity of my next-level self.

This is also the strategy I use with my clients that helps them access quantum leaps in their businesses.

Q. If you were to write a book about yourself, what would you name it?

Lea: Lol I don’t know hadn’t thought about it.

Q. What is one of the best or most worthwhile investments you’ve ever made?

Lea: The S & ME 500. Investing in coaching for my business & myself is hands down the best investment I’ve ever made.

I’ve spent over 6 figures in high touch 1:1 mentorship & masterminds and will continue to invest in myself. This work has completely transformed my internal world & the life I lead today.

Q. Where do you see the future in your niche/industry 3–5 years from now?

Lea: I see the coaching industry continuing to 10x. This is only the beginning.

Q. What is your ‘one-sentence’ piece of advice you’d like to give to someone who wants to become an entrepreneur, coach, or business owner?

Lea: Follow your intuition, even when it makes no sense! Even if you don’t have the answers listen to the nudges and try them out, it’s only through imagining & walking through the steps of starting a business that you learn what’s for you & isn’t.

I thought my first business would be a CBD skincare line or a med spa & look where I wound up, it required me to start messy & take the first step. Ready is a lie!!! You must take action for the universe to continue to lead you to your highest alignment & the answers/resources you seek.
