I will be hosting a closed-door, live video Roundtable Discussion on “What It Will Take to Thrive Through These Exceptional Times as A Highly Sensitive Leader” taking place on June 3rd, 2020 1pm – 2:30pm, EASTERN.
In the next few weeks and months you’re going to see a hard push for things to “go back to how they were” (as if this were possible without a threat to well-being). You’ll see it online, and possibly with neighbors, parents, sisters and brothers. Maybe even your closest colleagues and friends, too.
And you’re going to be challenged.
Everything you’ve felt as true over these last weeks (we DO need more time to be quiet; our health IS a top value; people ARE meant to relate more deeply – all the things that are natural to you as a highly sensitive) is going to, once again, quickly be called into question.
And you’re going to feel the shadow side of your empathic nature rear its ugly head tempting you to, once again, hold back, go silent and deny your truth to the louder, brassier influencer.
“I guess what I have to offer isn’t important or needed or wanted”, you’ll be tempted to think.
DON’T FALL FOR IT.
The “back to what it was” is not the answer.
These past weeks weren’t a waste.
This pandemic wasn’t for nothing.
The time to rise, to lead with your highly sensitive values, to speak your truth is what’s needed now more than ever – for healing, for growth, for transcendence.
Dare to cut through the noise with your stillness.
Dare to share your deep knowing.
Dare to LEAD.
Because the “back to what it was” will be short-lived and there will be a re-clamor for guidance, for direction, for a different way forward.
Speak now and your voice will be what’s heard right when it’s needed. Wait and it could be too late.
Very soon I’ll be sharing the “how’s” of leading through these times as a highly sensitive. It will only be for a select few.
Keep your eyes out. You’ll know if it’s meant for you …
P.S. If you know you could use a daily boost to support you with keeping your wits about you, your focus forward and your highly sensitive leadership finely tuned then I recommend you plug in to the power of activating your energy to a higher level for just 10 minutes a day.

Today on A Course In Business Miracles, we’re addressing a problem that many HSEs have throughout their life: the feeling of a lack of capability. When we’re misunderstood by non-HSEs, we can find ourselves full of doubt in ourselves, our abilities, and ultimately in our own feelings. It’s hard to fight against the 80 percenters and feel the power that is within us to do the work we were meant to do.
In today’s episode, we’ll be going over an exercise that can help you get back in touch with the power you have inside of you as an HSE. Use this simple yet powerful technique to remember your capability to be successful as an HSE, no matter what the inner or outer circumstances.
On March 18 I began leading a live, guided daily activation for highly sensitive business owners to support us all in staying in the highest activation of our Highly Sensitive Entrepreneur Strengths during these Exceptional Times.
I heard from so many people how supportive and valuable the daily activations have been and of many Business Miracles occurring even in the midst of this crisis (which makes my heart so happy to serve in this way).
Have the endurance to run the marathon of these Exceptional Times rather than be flattened by Overwhelm and other HSE Shadows.
Be equipped to deal with the escalation of conflicts and tensions in relationships.
Support yourself so you can better support others.
Be the leader of your business and your life.
Experience Business Miracles that breakthrough limitations.
Keep from being triggered into old patterns and limiting beliefs.
Not being overcome by what is happening in the world.
Able to be the highest version of yourself during times of intensity.
Then I invite you to click here to join our global Community of HSEs as we RISE UP each day as the Royal Advisors we are each being called to be, now more than ever (for less than $1.77 per activation that you’ll be able to listen to over and over again).
In times of confusion and uncertainty, the mind loves to react to problems. The mind loves to ruminate, to toss, to turn, to churn on any and every possible thought and then spitting it out as – A PROBLEM. This can wreak havoc within the nervous system, particularly the highly sensitive nervous system.
Listen to the activations to call on a Source that is greater and bigger than each of us for help, for direction, for creative solutions – your way THROUGH these Exceptional Times.
These activations will support you – in only 10 minutes a day – to stay grounded and focused so you can be your most productive self without burning out.
P.S. For a limited-time I am offering all 40+ recordings for $98 $78. If you’re ready to be the leader of your business and your life through these Exceptional Times get instant access here.
When the global pandemic was declared on March 12, 2020, I went into immediate action to offer additional support to all Highly Sensitive Leaders in the Business Miracles Mentoring Programs.
I have been committed to ensuring that they have what they need to navigate these Exceptional Times as a Highly Sensitive Entrepreneur (HSE). In addition to the many ways we are here to support them, I was excited to offer “The Exceptional Times Roundtable Bonus Series: Addressing Real HSE Needs in Real Time“.
I held a total of 9 classes in the last 6 weeks with topics including:
How to Work From Home As An HSE When Everyone Else In Your Family Is Also At Home
How to Be Able to Be Flexible and Fluid With Your Plan While Remaining Productive
Valuing Your Services and Ability to Provide Emotional Support During, Through and Beyond These Exceptional Times (without burning out)
Internet Marketing with Integrity Through And Beyond These Exceptional Times – Part 1
Internet Marketing with Integrity Through And Beyond These Exceptional Times – Part 2
How to Continuously Show Up in V&V in Marketing Without Sabotage or Burnout
Easily Asking For and Receiving Payment as an HSE
How To Stay With The Important Core Practice Of Consistency Now More Than Ever To Succeed Beyond These Exceptional Times
How To Use The Business Miracles Team Frenzic Scale To Keep Yourself Calm and Productive
I will be facilitating an Exceptional Times Roundtable Bonus Series Part 2 that will be focused on what’s needed for highly sensitives to lead through these Exceptional Times rather than get stuck in overwhelm, analysis paralysis,or shutting down (or shutting the doors to your business) all together.
We start on May 12 and if you sense you’re meant to join us click here to schedule a time to speak to a Business Miracles Enrollment Coach who will help you get clear on if this is the best next step for you at this time.
Before Teri Thomas joined in the HSE Mentoring Program, she was dealing with what many HSEs are familiar with. Constant burnout, refusing to hire on more people, putting off today’s work until tomorrow. She felt helpless and didn’t know where to turn. Until she connected with Heather Dominick and A Course In Business Miracles, and everything changed.
Today on A Course In Business Miracles, we have an HSE Feature with HSE dog trainer Teri Thomas! Listen in as I talk with Dog Trainer, Teri Thomas, to hear how she went from believing that she had to do it all alone to hiring another trainer and someone to help her manage her office. Once she broke through that limiting belief the floodgates opened and in one year she crossed the 6-figure mark.
As a highly sensitive person the honing of the super-powers you possess such as intuition, and deep thinking, and deep feeling is more important now than ever.
To cultivate your ability to access creative solutions.
This is a necessary skill on any regular ‘ol day as an entrepreneur, but it’s now an absolute must within these times of intensity.
To learn how to hone your Highly Sensitive Entrepreneur (HSE) Strength of Creativity, to be able to find your voice and to be able to use your voice in your marketing, in your serving, in your selling are skills and muscles that are more necessary now and will always be of value to you in both your business and your life.
This process is not as shiny as the “quick-fix-take-this-class-answer”, but will absolutely always be there to serve you in all parts of your life for the rest of your life.
Before this global pandemic, I made a commitment that my work and service to HSEs was not about adding to the information overload of the 21st Century, but instead, to very diligently cultivate and curate not only teachings, but programming designed to create true transformation. Within that true transformation is teaching HSEs how to rely on yourself.
To trust the use of your own HSE Strengths.
This is still my commitment.
And this is why highly sensitive business owners in the Business Miracles Community are thriving IN SPITE OF and in the midst of these Exceptional Times. Here are just a few:
“Even during pandemics and isolation we can still have Celebrations. And Miracles are happening every day. I offered a free 4-week Zoom series of energy healing and got an amazing 19 participants. The feedback was wonderful. I asked each person for one word of how they were feeling after the session and received: peaceful, calm, centered, grounded, happy, energized, uplifted. It lifts and expands my heart to be able to be in service to others during this Unique Time.
As difficult and scary as this worldwide situation is, I am feeling called to my work and so much in my strengths and able to step up with inspired ideas. Also feeling grateful that immediately following the Fall 2019 Retreat I created a separate work space in my home, and the majority of my work had been moved to video last year. Thank you Business Miracles Team for all that you do!” ~Melissa Pickell, HSE Nutrition Counselor
“It’s April 10, 2020 and as of today I have one speaking opportunity booked for the local Women’s Enterprise Online Webinar on April 23, I have two HSE Selling Conversations setup for next week, I am collaborating to do a Facebook live discussion with another entrepreneur next week where I will talk about my Business Success Roadmap Toolkit.” ~Fidelma Greene, HSE Consultant and Coach
“1. I got a lead for a part time job I can easily do from home at $18 per hour, and even though they said all the slots were filled I got the name of the head person and contacted her and someone else. Take no prisoners!
2. I’ve gone ahead and applied for SBA, unemployment benefits, and I spoke to my banker today about PPP. I will be filling that out tonight.
3. I have a confirmed virtual speaking engagement with an organization in Alabama in May that is going to PAY ME.
4. I received an email from a woman who was on one of my engagements last week who wants to know more about my work so she can refer clients to me. We have a call booked for next week.
5. From that same speaking engagement, I got 3 requests for HSE Selling Conversations and 1 is booked. The other 2 may not get booked but that is OK.
6. I reached out for a virtual engagement yesterday that had its speakers booked but I decided to see what they may have. I was told they have one slot open for their My Virtual so I filled out the app right away.
7. Hunny and I took a nap today and I didn’t feel guilty about it.” ~Jen Shultz, HSE Business Coach
I began a tuition discount last month (which now feels like years ago) to celebrate my birthday and extended it until May 1st, 2020.
If you know you’re meant to learn how to hone your super-powers and to thrive and lead as a highly sensitive through these times then I invite you step forward, receive this special discount and join us before end of day May 1, 2020.
Exceptional people are called to RISE UP during exceptional times and we will get through this – together.
Set long-term goals as a highly sensitive person business owner? That just seems impossible right now and though it can be easy to fall into the trap of “its always going to be like this” the truth is that this situation will eventually change.
So, now is actually NOT the time to let go of those bigger life visions you have for yourself, but to instead do this:
1. Reassess what is most important to you.
2. Envision your future-self living from these values.
3. Commit to begin to embody right now how your future self would feel with this “value life” as your reality (IMPORTANT: without yet knowing how it will all come about).
This will support you to feel better in the moment while creating a sense of assurance for your psyche that “this too shall pass” and you do have the ability to live your way forward.
On May 7th, 2020 I’m facilitating a virtual “Get It Done Day” for the Highly Sensitive Entrepreneurs (HSEs) in the Business Miracles Community where we will come together to “Create Your Pivot Plan As A Result of These Exceptional Times: Whether that be Business Model, Marketing or Personal Changes (Relationships, Health, Life desires) “
Every highly sensitive person business owner will leave the day clear about the changes their meant to make to thrive through these times and live their “value life”.

In times of confusion and uncertainty, the mind loves to react to problems. The mind loves to ruminate, to toss, to turn, to churn on any and every possible thought and then spitting it out as – A PROBLEM. This can wreak havoc within the nervous system, particularly the highly sensitive nervous system. Listen in to call on a Source that is greater and bigger than each of us for help, for direction, for creative solutions.
We are at the point in this global pandemic where the mind can really begin to wreak havoc wondering, when will this END so we can go back to business as usual??
Though it might be hard to grasp right now, every type of apocalyptic change does bring with it opportunity for growth and betterment. They key as a Highly Sensitive Entrepreneur (HSE) is to be able to remain strong and steady through the storm.
Here are 3 pillars to support you in accessing your HSE Strengths during, through and beyond this Exceptional Time:
This is a biggie. So many HSEs that I am speaking to right now are having a difficult time focusing which makes sense because deep change is rocking our planet. Here’s what will help:
Have a solid way to start and end your day. This will give you bookends to your daily experience.
Make those bookends reflective and you will regain a sense of agency. For example, start the day writing down 1 kind action you will take during the day and before bed write down 3 sources of pride from the day.
2) Willingness to be flexible.
Well, this seems strange since we were just talking about structure; yet the ability to balance both structure and flexibility is a sign of resilience.
Affirm this is a “temporary new normal” and be willing to do some things differently than you ever would have before this crisis. Most likely, you will surprise yourself by
A) what you are actually able to do and
B) what new ways of being you choose to keep when this crisis is all said and done.
3) Calm communication.
Crisis will bring to the forefront everything we’ve been ignoring or avoiding about ourselves and our relationships. Best to be ahead of any potential explosion by consciously choosing to have a “difficult conversation”.
Start by getting clear about what you need in some quiet refection or journaling for yourself and then start a conversation by calmly expressing,“I would like to talk to you about something that feels very vulnerable to me.”
Then make an agreement that each person has a certain amount of time to share while the other just listens. Set a timer if needed.
I would love to hear how these three pillars support you. Just hit “reply” and let me know.
Exceptional people are called to RISE UP during Exceptional Times and not only will we get through this together, but we will transcend this – together.
