Her Dream

Break the Boundaries with Elisa Palma-Hancock

Elisa Palma-Hancock is a seasoned businesswoman gracing the entrepreneurial world for over a decade. Based in Sarasota, Florida, Elisa’s mission transcends conventional business norms. She has devoted her work to helping creatives and intuitive souls conquer their self-doubts and turn their struggles into the clarity, confidence, and courage necessary to align with their soul’s purpose.

What does your dream life look like?
My dream life looks like a flow between doing meaningful work and play, which for me means traveling and enjoying art and the company of good friends. I’m still working on it, but I’m so grateful and honored to do soul work to help others on their healing journey.

Tell me more about the work you do.
I help creatives and entrepreneurs find clarity about their purpose and gifts and the confidence to make a living out of it.

What inspired you to start this business?
What inspired me is my own life journey which has been hard and complicated but also blessed and filled with the light of Spirit. For me, it has a lot to do with who I am rather than just with something I do. My life took an unexpected turn when I was in my early 30s and initiated me.

What’s a challenge you’ve faced along your entrepreneurial journey?
Between the many challenges, I can think for sure the fact that I had a major life change right at the beginning because I moved from Italy to the U.S. and despite all that I knew already or I thought I did, it still represented quite the cultural shock.

Once overseas, I also relocated 3 times in the space of 8 years, which is a lot! Trying to find and connect with the right community has always been a bit challenging. I’m still working on this. The US is big, a lot changes from one state to another, or at least that has been my experience so far.

I leveraged my ability to be resilient and not let the sense of loneliness prevail. I think people feel way lonelier in general here. It certainly gave me the chance to work on my own limiting thoughts and helped me accept who I am even more.

Do you think that being an introvert has affected your business?
It did for sure until I had the chance to understand that we work differently and for this reason, we need to know our boundaries or put some in place when needed. So for sure, you will probably never find me live streaming every day or spending endless time on social media.

But I believe that there are better ways to market our business while protecting our energy. I’m learning how to every day as I go.

What methods do you use to bring in new clients?
So far a lot has happened through word of mouth for me, and I’ve just recently started to consider more seriously the online possibilities. I’m still figuring out my preferences.

Is attending networking events a part of your marketing strategy?
I’m not a fan, to be honest. I don’t like to sum up my work in two sentences when what I do has depth and many shades of meaning. It just doesn’t feel comfortable.

I think it works better for entrepreneurs who have more of a straightforward, simple service to offer. But I’ve done it maybe a few times in the past, and I don’t exclude doing it again in the future if I can find a way to do it that feels right for me.

How do you define success for yourself and your business?
Success for me is doing something I love and that makes me feel deeply satisfied. A successful business is a conduit for satisfaction and material support.

What advice would you give to other introverted women just starting their own businesses?
I would say to do their best to not get lost between the many voices. There are way too many out there who claim to have the solution to help you make a million bucks as a new coach in 6 weeks.

If they don’t know themselves enough, they’ll end up spending a lot of resources with very little to show for it left because most of that stuff is not for introverted people. So just to be aware they need to know themselves and how they work first.

Do you offer a service that can help them?
Well, I know what has helped me and that in turn, I’ve helped others overcome. My work focuses on helping the person know and see themselves from a very deep perspective as well as unlock that kind of self-trust and self-belief that can sprint them into the right action. My work is intuitive by nature and heals the deeper layers that we are not completely aware of yet.

Many of my clients started with a one-on-one session and then kept on working because of the results they were experiencing. Information received at the right time can be so revealing and transforming at the same time.
