I’m really happy you took this quiz, because make no mistake: healthy, functioning boundaries are a “make it-or-break-it” area for you AND your biz- and for ANY goals that you want to manifest AND feel good about reaching.
I also want to assure you that you’re not alone, my sacred rebel, because boundaries are a H-U-G-E issue for many women in business, and ESPECIALLY those of us who identify as witchy, as healers, as empaths, as sensitives, and as helpers among our people.
Magical women doing heart-centered work are often brainwashed into thinking that we should give our work away — this is especially an issue for people in the healing or supportive services.
We are raised to think that we need to serve everyone who needs help — whether or not they can pay, and whether or not they’re willing to step up and do the work. We are given so many reasons why we need to ignore our boundaries, give everything we’ve got until there’s nothing left to give, and shy away from standing in our value, and in the value of the service, products, or support you provide.
So if you don’t have any room to breathe because there’s so much on your plate, and you can’t even remember the last time you had a real rest… then it’s time to take a long look at your boundaries: examine your rates, your workload, your hours, and the expectations you’re setting and enforcing with the people and clients in your life.
You can’t manifest your visions from an empty cup. It’s KIND of a premise of magic 🙂 You have to start any change you want to see with RIGHT WHERE YOU STAND. And, that includes being honest about what’s working for you, and what isn’t. If you got THIS answer then it’s time for that convo with yourself.
Healthy boundaries keep you and your business in good shape, allowing you to get paid fairly and abundantly for the support and value you provide. With healthy boundaries, you can hire an aligned team, confidently communicate your needs, and learn how to say NO with kindness— so that you can finally get things off your plate and focus on what you actually enjoy doing.
They also open the door for you to be able to manifest you want- if you KNOW that you have strong boundaries that will work for you, you can STOP being afraid of what success will cost you- does that make sense?
Just as important, healthy boundaries are better for your clients, too. When you set boundaries not only do you give yourself the time and space you need to show up fully for your work… you also become a model for your clients and a source of inspiration around what it means to stand up for yourself and your value. And the world needs more of that.
Weak boundaries are a symptom of fear — fear of rejection, fear of scarcity, fear of being unliked and unloved. When you let those fears lead you, you model this for your clients and you attract more fearful, boundary-busting people into your world and business.
By the way, a sacred rebel is someone who is READY to build a profitable, aligned and crazy successful biz—without compromising on her worth or her values. Those are the women I work with. Is that you? Then keep on reading…
Angela came to me with a very powerful, magical, and supportive service that she offered locally in her community. Even though she was an EXPERT in her field — with over 20 years of experience…she was undercharging, over-working, and miserable in her business. She was exhausted.
She allowed clients to book whenever they wanted, out of fear that if she gave strict “office hours” she’d lose clients. She would do events whenever asked, even if the venue felt misaligned or didn’t earn her enough profit. She was afraid that if she didn’t accept ANY job, ANY client, she would lose money and wind up out of work.
So Angela and I began work on her inner connection to the value she offered. Over 9 months, we raised + restructured her prices (with lots of support and release to the fears that came up around this). We set restrictions on how many clients she’d see a day, what time she’d close for the night, and when she wanted to work weekends — if at all.
We did a lot of work around understanding the value she provides to her ideal client and how to confidently stand in what her work is really worth.
As a result, Angela started earning MORE and working LESS. With higher rates and more ideal hours, she increased her income and began feeling BETTER about her work-week. EXTRA money started coming in, in unexpected ways. She was able to book more aligned clients, more aligned events, and stand firm in her value so she could ask for the rates her work was worth.
She has traveled a path from financial scarcity to financial independence, building a 6-figure business she loves as a single mama working less than full-time.
Britt mentors women who are 100% committed to the inner AND outer work of building thriving businesses that create visibility and wealth without compromising personal life OR sanity—teaching women to use authentic connections to build success, versus ad spend and common marketing hype.
FUN FACT: She’s used her tried and true magic time-management tools to establish a high-profile pit bull rescue while also running her business, having three days off a week, and being an avid book-reader and beach-walker. If you work with her, you WILL see pictures of adorable dogs that need homes…you were warned.
