Impact vs Empire?

As I progress on this journey some insights really persist.

The why of embarking this journey may have started with having time freedom and financial freedom.

They no longer are.

I have experienced what many others have or are.

I feel I was duped into thinking the following:

It is easy to build a business all you need is an Email list.

It is easy to build a business all you need is to do daily Facebook lives.

It is easy to build a Business all you need to do is have a daily task, monthly goals and an accountability system.

It is easy to build a Business all you need to do is have an opt in like an ebook or video series on your website.

The truth is it is not easy to build an Online Business.

You cannot do just one thing, you need to do many things.

You need time, energy and space.

Building a Business takes time and there is no such thing as being an overnight success.

There is no template or system out there that works. Because what works for you may not work for me.

And systems need to be adapted and tweaked.

It is getting harder and harder as the Online space is becoming crowded and noisier and the public are becoming cynical.

However that is no reason to give up.

To be successful, you need to forget about the cynics or convert the cynics and you can only do that with honesty and integrity.

The Business world still has some people like that and those that do well are those that value those two ways of being.

The whole raison d’etre of my becoming an Entrepreneur is to impact as many individuals as I can with my gifts and talents and with my honesty and integrity.

The joy I get when Clients thank me for giving them an insight or shifting some negative energy is priceless.

However I see a development in the Personal Development Industry that many forget about growing and wanting to create an impact nd start focusing on building 6 figure empires instead.

I came across this Industry by accident in November 2017.

I was very naive and although I am still a newbie, I have seen so many shifts and emerging trends as the market place evolves.

Some of the shifts I do not like.

Some I do.

One of the shift is that trust and integrity is key and hard selling is being replaced by more practices borrowed from the dating world.

To attract Clients rather than chase after Clients.

To build relationships rather than see them as leads.

To focus on quality rather than quantity.

All these things is what my Business is about.

That is why I only work with three Clients in a given year.

I have two paid clients now and want to attract a third.

I work deeply and intensively with a Client and give them 100 percent.

I work with them one on one and using my three decades of working therapeutically with Clients, I help them improve their relationships with themselves and that helps them improve their relationships with other people, money, God, their body and health, time etc.

I also am grounded in not seeing my relationships with my Clients as me giving my time for their money.

What I have always known is that I offer a transformation. My clients lives transform dramatically and very quickly.

I have shifted in my mindset from an Employee who offers their skills for payment to an Entrepreneur who offers a transformation and that is usually priceless.

Clients come to me burnt out by their Profession or Business and finding and after three months usually they are nightmare free or resentment free or anxiety free.

I heal

I counsel

I advise

I release

I guide

I support

I coach

Integrity is something you have to really seek to find.

It is felt in your gut usually.

I have no fancy website but I do offer fabulous results.

I write from the heart.

I coach from the heart.

I wanted to share this with you today, you who have been accompanying me on this journey.

I hope you join me tomorrow too.

Till then.

If anything in this blog has really resonated with you and you would like to discuss the subject further with Taniya privately then use this link.




Having qualified as a Social Worker in July 1991 from Coventry University, it has been over two decades that I have been on the front line working with children and young people who are traumatized and on the margins of society. Although I studied Psycho-dynamic counselling for two years at Goldsmiths College (1991-1993), I decided to integrate Psycho-dynamic theories and skills into my Social work practice and flirt with and immerse myself in studying Islam as well as interfaith dialogue and friendships. For the last 20 years, I have been working in a multi-disciplinary Youth Offending Team in South London, comprised of Professional colleagues from different faiths and cultural backgrounds trying to support young people in the criminal justice system. I am married and mother to three sons, and juggle Social Work and interfaith dialogue with my writing, studying and the needs of home and family.
