In 2018, I wanted first of all to consolidate my online presence so I designed my website and created a free online metaphysical library in YouTube / WordPress / Facebook / LinkedIn and Twitter. I abandoned Instagram beca
use it was very limiting for technical reasons - my purpose was to put the articles or stories from my books out there in the form of stories and put a link to the books in Amazon so that the circular motion would feed each other - the articles would feed the book sales and so on and so forth.
The focus was also to give a lot of content for free because I wanted people to at least have the knowledge. I believe you receive what you give. I thought this way I would create a following and as an Author - I would become an Authority in my favourite subject: the field of consciousness as energy.
The next thing was to create a Patreon account where people could contribute if they so desired - if they felt that my work had value for them. I always think that some people can afford 10 euros or dollars or whatever currency they use, but another wants to contribute 500... This way I can leave it to the Universe to flow back to me holistically and organically whatever needs to happen.
On the other hand, I have my books in Amazon and my one-to-one or group coaching sessions, courses and workshops, so I created a good mix. I progressed further as technology was being made freely available and created audio-visual materials. I am currently busy retouching my courses: "The 5 Pillars of Success", "Public Speaking to Transform Your Life" and "Excellent Teaching Skills - A Course for Educators".
I first wanted to get a reputation for knowing my subject and for taking the initiative to put myself out there as a leader at my level of expertise. At this point in my life, I mostly wanted a timetable that would flow with my natural body rhythms - space to create, space to nourish people with information or support them, time to keep my environment clean and tidy, time for my family and time for myself.
To achieve this balance is not easy and it is work in progress, but obviously the more you focus on getting there, the more big and small changes that you have to make. The result is shaping your own reality in the right direction.
I see this work as maximizing and optimizing the use of my time and energy with a self-preservation focus (that's to say, without leading me to burnt-out). The magic takes place when you are able to accept and feel successful in many small practical ways as you develop a way to contain (not control) your energy and integrity within life's unexpected changes.
In February 2018 I started my online free metaphysical library that progressed later on into life discussion with my Zoom group of friends.
In April 2019 I created my polyglot languages YouTube channel "Polyglot Buzz" and in June 2019 I created with my sister, medical doctor Esther Garcia, our Spanish YouTube channel "Raising Consciousness".
I had managed to cover a lot of the areas of action that I intended and created a platform to play and work on the two subjects of my passion: metaphysics or energy and languages.
I taught myself all the technical skills that I needed to function in the internet - I wrote, edited and formatted my books, and I published them in Amazon. Originally I published them in other sites but I was being more successful in Amazon so I devoted to just one portal. Again - 80% of my customers in a 20% narrow band.
I learnt to edit my videos with Screencast@matic and my audios with Audacity and used YouTube tutorials to teach myself. Subsequently, I learned to work with Zoom to record my videos and I learned to publish all written and audio-visual posts all around the net.
It was an uphill battle that took me many hours... but the more I did it, the quicker I was becoming.
Then I wanted to go to the next level - marketing (apart from my social media network) but something was resisting: I don't like marketing - I don't like the feeling that I am forcing people to buy.
But I didn't know how otherwise to do it... until I saw a free video by Tyson Thaner.
All those years ago, I knew that I needed to focus on the reason for my business. It is all very good to say "I am a life coach and I want my clients to succeed", or whatever, but how are you going to do that in a way that is different from everyone else out there?
So I had spent many hours working my business plan, which at the beginning I also resisted... until I realised that it was because I was trying to get it over and done with by only looking at the surface.
But as I started to delve into the real business that I wanted to put out there and therefore the person that I needed to be to achieve so, I was able to walk with it or weave this business possibility into my real life.
And as I was focusing on it, everything that I was writing on those pages was becoming true one little step at a time and at the same time, once I started writing it, I started loving it.
The magic was alive!
