Show NotesSegment 1
Opens with a section from his book “Everyday Awakening.” Today’s section is titled, “Sitting still allows us to be more present towards ourselves and others.” Sam believes that those moments spent sitting still with yourself will help you see where the deep inner work needs to be done. Once you can be present with yourself you can be present with other people. Sam introduces his guest Alexandra Figueredo. In addition to her coaching, she is an intuitive healer, a certified Happy For No Reason trainer, and a certified dance instructor.Segment 2
Sam asks Alexandra why she changed her career. Alexandra was a banker at Gibraltar Private Bank & Trust. She loved working there but she didn’t love what she was doing. After reading the books, “The 7 Habits of Highly Effective People” and “The Success Principles” Alexandra reflected on her strengths and interests. While reading she noticed a misalignment in this and her current career. Alexandra joined her sister’s startup while she trained to get her Masters in communication. Her first year she ran out of her savings. Being the resourceful woman she is, Alexandra wrote her first book and became a coach that year.Segment 3
Alexandra shared her journey to becoming a Happy For No Reason trainer. In order to help her clients turn their passion into a career Alexandra suggests you start by discovering their mission. This can be done by looking for four key elements. What would you do if money wasn’t a concern, why you would do it, your unique ability, and your story. Once you understand your mission you can construct you million dollar mission.Segment 4
Look into what you’re passionate about. If you are struggling to think of something that can immediately be translated into a career, start with hobbies and things you like to do for fun. In her experience you will be happier and the passion will lead you closer to your mission. On May 21’s Alexandra will be hosting an online event on www.missiontomillionsseries.com. www.missionbasedbranding.com.
