Ellis, CEO of a small company, started working with me after he experienced a sequence of deaths in his family – all within a short period of time.
He needed space and time for grieving, but instead he was overwhelmed at work with deadlines and creative expectations, which caused his focus and performance to suffer.
Deciding to use the grief and pain he was going through as an opportunity for growth, Ellis made changes to his business and started working with me to hold him accountable and offer support.
Ellis’s first task was to hire an office manager so he could work less and step away from the office. This was a huge help and with it, Ellis was able to focus more on the grieving process, while still running a thriving business.
With the extra time he had created in his daily life, Ellis engaged mindfully in his process of grieving and through that, his spiritual development began to accelerate. His new awareness turned into a book, which he self-published and began to share with friends.
Although this was a new direction for him, Ellis discovered that he really enjoyed developing his spirituality and began to enhance his understanding with workshops and training courses from well-known leaders in the field.
As his grieving process came to a close, Ellis reorganized his business so he could make more money without working more hours. With new confidence and a deeper connection to his spirit, he began to secure and work on bigger contracts than he had in the past.
His biggest success, however, was getting one of his product lines into a major national retailer. The work of integrating his mystical and business sides led him to consider himself the shaman behind his company.
As our work came to a close, Ellis created a transition plan so he could retire and focus entirely on bringing his significant spiritual wisdom into the world as a teacher, writer, and speaker.
As Ellis says himself, “Kimberly got me to quit doubting and procrastinating and to get on with my destiny. She got me back on track – once and for all!”
