I came across your website first time when my husband was diagnosed with ulcerative colitis in 2013, when I was searching for more holistic options for healing because I strongly believed if he follows “traditional doctors idea of cure” he’ll never be well again. Yes medication did send his illness into remission until the next trigger came. I myself went through over 9 years of infertility, miscarriages, emotional suffering and pain where I started my own journey of healing as the doctors I listened to didn’t do much for me at all, but being to scared to listen and follow my own heart I listened to those “who knew better” because they were doctors, but they didn’t know my heart, my spirit, my body at all, they were looking on the surface, and I went deeper. I don’t have a child however I am in a much better place today and anything’s possible now that I listen to my own heart that only leads me to FREEDOM!!!
Now I did always have this “urge” in my heart that I should share my story with the world but never really had courage to do so and to let my VOICE out! I would find the excuse, why to share something so personal which is really fear, no one would be interested anyway, I don’t know how to write a book, or write a blog, although I purchased a few programs on how to write a book but never proceeded… So I bargained with myself, I would do natural fertility treatments and see whatever happens, I would also do (possibly) life coaching and mentoring course to have a “worldly education” (disregarding my life experience completely), and I would create an on-line coaching or something similar.
However not sharing what I went through was always there in my spirit, the book not written is always there….. Then I came across your website the other day about LTYF and was really SURPRISED!!! The program that would teach me ALL!!! My question is for the story like mine do you think it would be wise if I have some education in Life-coaching as my platform, or could I go into creating something from my Life-experience? I live in Australia and sometimes I feel I would have to have formal training to stand strong, people here often disregard those who don’t have ‘DIPLOMA’ although I have a ‘DIPLOMA’ in my own LIFE experience, is that enough? Could you please give me some advice where to go from here and would your program be more than enough and I don’t have to have any coaching degree? Thank you so very much. God bless you.
Thanks so much for your very interesting email!
It’s kind of funny that you are asking me whether you need an industry-related diploma, because I’m going to turn the question right back on you: When you found me (my health site), how much did it matter to you that I did not have ANY health-related diploma or qualification?
My other answer to that question (aside from saying that you should get a life coaching cert. if that FEELS really good/fun to you) is to say: When you write and publish a book, the book stands as your qualification and provides the connection to your audience that makes them say: Wow, I want to get in closer contact with her. So if your book is not JUST slanted to tell your story (which is super important) but ALSO to provide help and shift just from reading it… then you will have established your credibility, reputation and value.
So YES, Listen To Your Freedom will teach you how to do all this and much more. Also, the free 7-email series (Jini’s 7 Freedom Steps) will get you started and give you some handy tools for your biz idea, but also practical help to start clearing those blocks to telling your story. So I would start there and then you will know what is right for you at this time.
