This Week’s #WOW is Astrologer, Archetypal Consultant and Transformational Coach Gill Potter. I first met Gill earlier this year at an Event hosted by our mentor. She’s one of those people who, when you are in their company, make you feel instantly at ease. When I discovered the deep transformational work Gill undertakes, it made perfect sense as her nature matched her purpose beautifully. Now is the time to cast your sacred contract to put together the map of your life.
I’m an astrologer, a trained archetypal consultant and transformational coach. I see myself as your mission success mentor as I guide clients (mainly women entrepreneurs or women who want to run a business ) to successfully up-level their business and live their mission and dreams with more ease using my insights, clarity coaching and 7-steps process!
What lead you to making the decision of creating your own business?
In 2008 I lost my Dad and Grandad within one month of each other. I also started writing my book Sacred Paths Entwined to capture my story and share my journey. In 2009 I was working as a nurse, and although I also had a very part time business as a therapist/astrologer I knew I wasn’t living my fullest potential. I felt called to go to Chicago and cast my own sacred contract with Caroline Myss at CMED. After I cast my Sacred contract my life changed hugely and I met people like Bernadette Doyle (who became my first proper mentor) I subsequently left my job to set up my business: Your Sacred Purpose and really help people to heal and live their true purpose and mission with more joy!
Has there always been a burning desire inside you to create this, or did your business evolve from your original idea?
It has always been in the back of my mind to create a business but I had no idea a) how to go about it and b) wasn’t from a family who were business oriented-so I had little encouragement to do so. My own passions and desire for spiritual growth led me in this direction and I followed my own calling to do so.
What did/do you find to be the most challenging part of your business?
Making money (or asking for it) I find challenging. I know I help people shift enormously and have testimonials and success stories by the bucket load to show this. However, I prefer people to choose to work with me and I have often left money on the table because I wasn’t great at closing the sale! I am much better at this now!
What have you learned about yourself during the process of setting up your business?
I’ve learned that I need support and encouragement to go on when I’ve faced difficulties in my business and up-leveling it. I also see I’ve grown hugely as a person and that I had to let go of my past, including some friendships that didn’t support me. I like myself much more as the person I’ve become and know I am living from my heart and Soul and true purpose now by doing what I’ve done (despite the challenges) which have been many!
What advice would you give someone considering starting their own business?
It takes a huge commitment of your time, energy and love to do it. You need support (and it is out there by the bucket load now), so make sure you ask for it and invest in yourself and your business for what matters or you may struggle to succeed!
What products and services do you provide?
I help clients cast their Sacred contract. I offer clarity consultations using your birth chart. My first book, Sacred Paths Entwined came out on 4th July, 2012 and is available on Amazon. I run on-line group programmes, intimate retreats and webinars.
What is the greatest success story for your business?
My first book Sacred Paths Entwined released on 4th July, 2012 was a huge breakthrough moment and running my group mentoring programme. Seek the perfection of your mission on the back of it was my sweetest success to date.
I have helped so many people transform their life, business and destiny by casting and working with their own Sacred contract and that feels really good to know that!
