In May this past year, I had a great opportunity to be a part of Alissa’s program, “Unleash Your Practice." It was such a great opportunity to improve and most importantly learn about myself. As I pulled up to Alissa’s house early in the morning on the third and final day, I had no idea what I was getting myself into. To say I was a bit nervous would be an understatement.
As we got going that morning I was informed that we were going to be doing Equus Coaching, which involves working with horses. I had no idea what to expect and I had no prior experience with horses in my life. As I entered the arena, it was just me and a horse, talk about being out of my comfort zone! Spice (the name of the energetic miniature horse I was working with) could feel that I was initially nervous, and mirrored how I felt. As we started to break through my comfort zone I could see how my energy was being portrayed to Spice and it was exactly how my clients felt in our meetings. It was truly amazing how I started to learn about myself and how I can become better in my practice. I learned that I have great energy that allows me to build trust and attract people when I am true to my essential self. I used to not provide a clear sense of direction to my clients and they were often left thinking, “What is it you want me to do?”.
Through Alissa’s coaching and Equus training, I have become a better Representative by being bold in the direction and leadership I provide to my clients. I am thankful for the experience and all I learned. If anyone is looking to grow as a person and in their business, I whole heartedly believe that Alissa’s coaching, Unleash Your Practice® program, and Equus training will take you to the next level IF you are open to change.
Are YOU ready for change?
