INTRODUCING
Sacred Systems

A course for New Earth Doulas who want a restorative, abundant, spacious life and business... that supports their nervous system and their family.

Hey beautiful biz babe! Quick question: are you stuck in… procrasti-learning mode??!

This is when you’re obsessed with knowledge accumulation and don’t move into actual implementation. You never take action on the info you consume.

In fact, you avoid implementation like the plague and always default to learning more and more and more and more and more and more and more…

HERE’S WHY.

See, you can’t fail at learning. 

So that makes it a nice comfortable and easy and familiar place to stay at.

Talk about your comfort zone.

Continuing education is great, sure; ideally we are all lifelong students, but at some point, you gotta get out there and share all that knowledge and wisdom and information you have… with other people. Otherwise, what’s the hot dang point?

I mean at some point it’s even kind of self-centered in a way… You’re focused on improving your “knowledge base” instead of actually getting out there and actually using that knowledge to help those people you keep saying you want to help. 

It’s ok to be a …

  • Information Junkie
  • Course Collector
  • Certification Zombie

when you’re also getting clients.

But a lot of times, that’s exactly what’s standing in the way of you getting clients!

I also think… being in perpetual “LEARN” mode… is the most harmful form of procrastination. It’s so easy to rationalize and justify. And it could also be a symptom of imposter syndrome. 

Re: “I’m not ready to or capable of helping people unless I have a PhD level of knowledge in this field”.

Babe, closing the gap between information and implementation is the name of the game. If you really want to feel more confident and competent, and reach your goals ASAP; start taking action on what you know.

Knowing how to do yoga is not the same as doing yoga.

Knowing how to be a doula is not the same as supporting someone in real life, who is on their birthing journey.

Knowing how to write a blog is not the same as actually writing a blog.

You gotta go do the thing.

Remember; there are no million-dollar ideas, only million-dollar actions.
