This morning I received a call from Sheila a former coaching client and successful female advisor, she called to say she finally had an epiphany. She told me that during our coaching she had struggled with my message. During my work with Sheila I continued to emphasize the importance of finding her feminine self and incorporating that self into her business. Like most successful female financial advisors she perceived femininity as pink bows and soft voices, more as a weakness than a strength. What she failed to recognized was that it is through our feminine spirit that comes our strength and power as woman. While we made some great strides during our coaching at refocusing her business we had hit a wall. Today she called to tell me she finally get’s it and that she now understands where I was leading her and why.
This past week Sheila she was preparing for a presentation to over 50 affluent women. While Sheila has given many presentations in the past this one opportunity was giving her a challenge, she wanted to present a good message but for some reason she was stuck. As she does with most challenges Sheila turned to her bible for inspiration as a result her feminine voice began to speak and her message became crystal clear. While different than any other presentation she had ever given she knew it was time to speak from her heart.
Sheila’s presentation focused on Love and Money, she referenced the bible, quoted sources outside of the financial industry and left the women speechless. Sheila generated more appointments from this one presentation than any other presentation she ever gave. She did not sell, preach or motivate with fear. Sheila spoke from the heart with compassion, encouragement and love. She said the feeling was overwhelming. It was at that moment that she understood where I was trying to take her during our coaching time together.
