Say hello to Laurie Morse from San Diego, CA, US. Her dream is to live on a sustainable, garden-rich property with her husband and pets where she wakes up every day to a light-filled, beautiful, spacious, comfy home.
This home has her dream art studio and together with her thriving online Sacred Health Academy, her time is flexible so she can create, have guests, and travel in comfort as she chooses.
Tell us about the work you do and what inspired you to start this business or career.
After 10yrs in corporate, my soul felt like it was getting sucked dry. I started wondering what else I could do that felt aligned and that I could wake up feeling happy about. Long story, but Chinese Medicine and I found each other. Spirit was the matchmaker. I’ve gotten really good at what a person needs to heal, putting it into ways that make sense, and teaching people how to cultivate their Life Force.
I’m also an artist and part of what I do is take people through creative healing processes to heal (no experience necessary). I love, love, love what I do and wish more people could learn about their mind, body, and spirit at these deeper levels.
Has being an introvert affected your life and your business?
It took me a while to figure that out. As any introvert knows, too much time around people without enough recharge time alone is a recipe for overwhelm and burnout. I now get to work with people one-on-one and virtually with plenty of time in between to recharge.
I asked for a set up like this years ago and it worked out well. I’m always having to consider things like how big is the gathering, and where’s my escape route. I can’t plan more than 2-3 things a week and preferably with a day in between for restoring my energy and balance.
Who’ll be there? Are they energy drains? If I spend my energy on such-and-such, will it be nourishing? If not, it’s a no! Things like that.
Share a significant lesson you have learned on your journey so far.
As an introverted business person, it’s only been more recently that I realized I can do business MY way, not the way the biz guru’s say is the only way to be successful. It’s so liberating.
The other thing I’ve done all along is ask my Higher Self to be my marketer, to bring the right people that are a good fit, and She does. And She’s good at it. I love it because I can’t do ALL the things.
What advice would you give to other introverted women who are on a journey to build their dreams?
Get clear about what works and what doesn’t in order to stay centered and balanced and then give yourself permission to only do the things that work. There’s room for all types of business women, more now than ever.
It’s really ok to claim your spot and do it your way.
Thank you for taking the time to share your story.
