“No matter how hard it is or how long it takes, I am meant to do this. Because the universe conspired to get me here.”

- CJ

In this episode, I welcome you In My Business again! In my monthly In My Business episodes, I share my personal journey and experience of becoming an entrepreneur — even the icky, challenging side of things. (Because running a business isn’t all sunshine and roses, as we all know!)

This is an episode for MEANTrepreneurs™, not WANTrepreneurs. It focuses on the period just before I took my side biz to centre stage — before I stepped into my power as a coach and entrepreneur.

I want to tell you about how I manifested my own layoff in 2015.

While being laid off may not seem like a happy day for most people, it’s something that I spent six months energetically manifesting… and it was the start of the next great chapter of my life!

If you’re ready to start the next chapter in yours, and want some tips on how to make things happen, listen now!

In this episode of The Shine to FIVE™ Method with CJ, you’ll discover: 

  • How I put the energy out into the universe that eventually led to my big shift
  • How I started to gather the tools that I’d need even before my layoff happened 
  • What I did during the layoff process — and how I surprised the HR team in more ways than one!
