A client gave me one of the nicest compliments last week. She thanked me for giving her strength on her fertility journey.
Although she's not pregnant yet, she has progressed very far and I believe it's a matter of time.
But I've had to help her through the emotional turbulence.
Just as I hope I shine a little light for my clients, I need that for myself.
I mentioned my mentor, Ben Settle, in yesterday's email. He's been guiding me for the past 2 years.
Creating, running, and growing a new business is a monumental task. The numerous moving pieces are overwhelming without knowing how to navigate them properly.
Paying for a mentor who is where I want to be is a no-brainer for me.
I could probably have accomplished it myself without a mentor. But it would have cost me more time, money, energy, and disappointment in the long run.
I know that for a fact.
Because I would be reinventing the wheel unnecessarily when I can just implement what he teaches.
"Wax on, wax off" - Miyagi
I see women constantly trying to piece together their own fertility plan - often using questionable information from Dr. Google.
Reinventing the wheel.
Your fertility doctor is the best for advanced medical techniques. S/he is your trusted source for all things IVF and insemination related.
But your MD usually knows diddly about natural methods like nutrition, supplements beyond the obvious ones, and lifestyle changes to improve success rates.
You're much better off finding a clinical practitioner with experience helping women get pregnant naturally.
Having someone guide you circumvents your own biases and preferences that keep you in your comfort zone.
Getting better often requires being uncomfortable. Pushing yourself beyond your known boundaries.
Like a physical trainer.
Except in your case, someone like your local acupuncturist or naturopath will help you do that.
