About us
If I could give new entrepreneurs one piece of business advice that would save them time, money and accelerate their success I know exactly what I would tell them. But before I share this little gem, I want to share a bit about my journey.

About Julie

When I launched The Corporate Yogi in 2011 I had more than 15 years of business experience under my belt. During that time I was immersed in marketing and communications for technology companies and startups. I worked in public companies and private companies; I’d experienced unprecedented growth, the highest of highs and the lowest of lows.

 

Ever hear that rule that it takes 3 to 5 years to get a new business off the ground? I was confident that my kick-ass experience, confidence and marketing skills made me immune to it. At least, that’s what I thought at the start of my journey. The truth is, becoming a successful entrepreneur has been one of the hardest and most challenging things I’ve ever done. And trust me, I’ve done a lot of challenging things in my years. I understand now why more than 90% of new businesses fail and why so many entrepreneurs give up. I believe my business experience helped me immensely, but I see now that it was only part of what I needed.

 

Okay, so I promised you some advice, didn’t I? Straight up, here it is. The most important thing you need to know about entrepreneurship is that it’s an accelerated form of personal development. Your mindset and beliefs are the subconscious blueprint that determine your success. The bottom line? The growth of your business depends on the growth of YOU. It’s not rocket science, but I still see a lot of entrepreneurs focus solely on factors outside of themselves to grow their business.

 

I know now that everything on my path has played a role in where I am today. If I had made millions in year one, I wouldn’t understand how to help others. I faced my fear of public speaking, learned how to be comfortable being seen and heard, and perhaps scariest of all I learned vulnerability. My business called me forth to grow, and once I started to incorporate my spiritual principles into my business and focused on my personal growth, it really started to take off.

A revolution of
consciousness

Looking back with perspective, this makes perfect sense because we’re experiencing a revolution of consciousness and an entrepreneurial explosion. Think they’re mutually exclusive? Think again. This trend to build conscious businesses is one of the most significant factors in raising consciousness on our planet.  Traditional tactics like fear, greed and competition no longer make us tick. Being passionate about work is not something we’re willing to compromise and traditional goals like shareholder dividends and ROI have been replaced by authenticity, purpose and fulfillment.

 

Now, I’m ready to help and serve. I’m ready to share my learnings with you and leverage key spiritual principles to accelerate your business growth. I want to teach you how to stay aligned with your purpose, connected to source, and how to develop great relationship skills that will make you a powerful leader.

 

 

So, who the heck am I?

 

I’d like to tell you who I am by sharing my core values. These values are what make me tick and are things I will never compromise. Here’s a look at my top five and how they’re important to me:

 

Freedom – I don’t do well with rules and thrive in an environment where my creativity can run wild. This explains why I’ve worked in startups and love entrepreneurs.

Risk – I love to be pushed out of my comfort zone and gravitate to situations where the stakes are high. I keep finding myself in situations where I have to learn and grow, and I know now that I seek this out.

Love – Let’s face it, love makes the world go around. Sometimes I think fully opening your heart to love is one of the most courageous things you can do.

Growth – I love learning, reading and developing new skills. The more I learn the less I know. Life is fascinating and I’m hungry for knowledge.

Adventure – I love travel and discovering new experiences. I get bored doing the same thing over and over. I don’t even like going to the same restaurant twice.

 

Oh, and another question I’m often asked, “What advice would you give your 20 year old self?”  Hmm, seeing as I’m 41 years old and I’ve made a lot of mistakes over these years, I have a lot of advice to share. Here’s the 5 most important lessons:

 

1. Don’t play small to make others feel big.

2. If people are intimidated by your strength and authentic power, these clearly aren’t your people (Find new people).

3. Don’t make life decisions based on money.

4. Spend more energy chasing your passion instead of running from your fear.

5. And don’t ever, ever, ever compromise your values

 

For me, being an entrepreneur is about more than just freedom, flexibility, or giving your old boss the one-finger salute, it’s the opportunity to bring your unique gifts into this world and learn a LOT about yourself in the process. I’d love to connect and hear more about your story and see how I can help.
