There was a time when I thought that I did not have the make up to be an entrepreneur. In my mind I had the limiting belief that I had to be cold, calculated and heartless to be successful as a business woman.
This was something that I was not. Often times I led with my emotions. I was one big blob of heart. It wasn't until I embraced my passion and purpose that I absolutely became aware that I was indeed equipped to be an entrepreneur. It was also then that I realized my erroneous thinking regarding entrepreneurship.
I've heard women in business tell other business women to leave their feelings at the door. The thought that in order to be a business woman you have to be less of who you are doesn't sit well. The stereotype that women are too emotional therefore need to become unemotional because emotions in business are bad is another hard pill that I choose not to swallow. There is a different way of thinking we can choose to adopt. Many people have the idea that feelings are bad. What if I told you that feelings are neither good or bad? They just are. They do give us clues to what's really going on inside of us. These clues are gems. They can help release us of personal barriers and propel us into forward momentum. They can allow us to live more authentic and fulfilled lives. Am I saying to be driven by only emotion? Heaven forbid! Please read on.
If we choose to look at and acknowledge our feelings we can begin to see more clearly what our true purpose and passions are in life. We then can begin to access the very tools to begin to live passionately. Allowing our hearts, head, and intuition to sync up allows us to live powerfully inside our truest potential. We then begin to live more fulfilled lives. There are many people that divorce their hearts from their head. Living in this way puts you in internal conflict. You cut off a part of your voice. The same is true when you divorce your heart from your head. Alignment is necessary to living authentically to your true self.
Connecting with your heart space allows you to connect with others more deeply through empathy and compassion. Having logic with it carries you forward into actionable steps in order to create intentional change in your life. Intuition gives you insight into knowledge that you wouldn't normally have access to. The three allow you to see more clearly and holographically. Together they are what make the most powerful and influential entrepreneurs successful.
In conclusion, entrepreneurs build relationships. Quality relationships require authentic connection. Please don't leave your feelings, your logic or your intuition at the door! It is what will connect you to those that need and will value your services and business the most! #KIAI
Awakening to your value is a daily moment by moment occurrence. The key to becoming aware of your value is to first understand that you are worthy of love and respect including and perhaps most importantly from yourself.
"Before trying a life coach I felt a sense of embarrassment to let anyone know what I was going through. It seemed too hard to face the truth about my life up until recently. It took for me to reach mental distress before I reached out for help. Reaching out for help to Anitra Rice was the best first choice I could have made to start my new healthy journey. With every session my thoughts become clearer on what I WANT OUT OF LIFE! Coaching is not only helping with my inner peace, but also my PARENTING is improving, which has impacted my son in a positive manner as well. Thanks Ms. Rice!"

"Great speaker that catches your emotion and attention. Creating a vision board was inspiring.
Anitra.... articulated my thoughts, feelings and journey so perfectly that it inspired me to the core of my being. God has given you a gift to be able to share and bring hope to those who are on the journey to healing in Jesus.... God has been so faithful to heal me... you've just put it into words and song. May God continue to bless you and others through you.

As a teacher I know we all struggle with starting a parent meeting off with positive things about a child who has been cutting up in our class. Well, one day, I was speaking to Ms. Rice about a student that has been significantly misbehaving in class. I told her how I was finally able to get the parent to come in for a face to face meeting. Ms. Rice shared with me how to start the meeting off by showing the parent empathy about having to receive calls about their child misbehaving in class and then how to proceed with asking the parent to help me be able to work with their child so he/she can be more successful in school. I must say I tried this with my parent and it really turned the atmosphere for the meeting around. The parent was not defensive about his child. He even did most of the talking after that with his child telling his daughter how disappointed he was in the choices she's making and how she is making it hard for her teachers to help her to learn all she can. After the meeting, the little girl was a different person. I truly feel that this was because I started the meeting off with the strategies that Ms. Rice had provided me. Thank you Ms. Rice for your help. You turned a negative to a positive meeting.
