There I sat, with my highly sensitive self, weeping in the VIP section at the 2015 Women In The World Summit. Sure I was impressed and inspired by the star-studded, celebrity spokeswomen: Diane von Furstenberg, Meryl Streep, Helen Mirren, Ava Duvernay, Barbra Streisand, Hillary Clinton, Samantha Power, Robyn Wright, Angelina Jolie – just to name a few, but it wasn’t their words that had me choking back sobs. No, it wasn’t.
Who left me with tears streaming down my cheeks were simply two mothers; one from Israel and one from Palestine: Robi Damelin and Bushra Awad, both members of the Parents Circle Families Forum and both who lost sons in their 20’s to the wars that continues to rage in their part of our world.
They each shared their stories (Bushra through a translator) of the sons they loved, the way their sons were each killed, the personal devastation that followed, how each came to the Parents Circle (Bushra didn’t like Robi when they first met) and how they have each committed to peeling back the layers of historical hate to reveal a deep love for each other and determination to bring peace to their communities and their message to the world: “No more war. For our children of the future, no more war.” … Read More about "These mothers made me weep" by Heather Dominick

I just had to share this with you…I gave a webinar class yesterday that really surprised me! I knew the content I was sharing was important (and it is), but what really surprised me was the emotional and moving “questions and answers”portion at the end of the webinar. All I can say is, WOW.
So, that’s why I’ve made the re-play available for you for the next 24 hours ONLY!
Click here to access the webinar replay.
Here’s what some webinar participants had to say:
“A completely transformative journey – I am so glad to be a part of this community! Thank you, Heather and thank you Miracle Team!”
“Everything I’m hearing makes my heart soar! Thank you for seeing me.”
“I found this site yesterday, I was getting goosebumps reading it. I felt like every word was what I struggle with daily.” … Read More about I just had to share

I want to share something with you that’s pretty vulnerable for me…
Yes, it’s true I’ve been successfully self-employed for over 10 years; have brought my coaching company across the million dollar mark and work with clients and team members that I deeply love, but just over 4 years ago was one of the darkest, most depressing times in my business and life. I was pushing to make more, more, more; I constantly felt inadequate like I was being overwhelmingly suffocated from my belief that “I am not enough” and, to top it off, when I looked to the general coaching industry for help I was disheartened by the massive disconnect that I saw. I questioned everything about what I was doing in my business and who I had become.
However, this was not the first time I had wrestled with darkness in my soul and if the past had taught me anything it was the importance of looking “in here” when I didn’t like what I saw “out there”. So I dove even deeper into my own spiritual practice, connected with trusted mentors, and, most importantly, poured even more love into my work with my current clients and community members. What emerged has been amazing.
I discovered what I now refer to as doing the “real work” as a coach, practitioner or creative entrepreneur. Yes, it’s about making money and being able to provide for you, but the greater truth is about a journey of bravery for folks like you and me. It’s about the willingness to look in the mirror and when you don’t like what you see creating a shift in perception (a miracle!); to be willing to see things differently; to go from “I Can’t” to “How Can I?” and, ultimately, to shift from fear to love – in every part of being in your business as well as every part of living your life.
This is the 21-Day journey I invite you to join me on. This isn’t your typical tele-summit. I’ve called together 9 of the most powerful, genuine, global Master Teachers I know who are committed to creating a shift in economic consciousness by sharing the “darker” moments in their business journey and the miracles that brought them to the other side and how this is available for you, too.
It takes 21 days to change a habit so each day you will receive a “21-Minute Daily Dose” of a business miracle either in the form of a self-study exercise, audio training or inspiring master teacher interview. This is my 100% gift to you. This is me paying it forward. The more businesses in the world being managed by miracles, the greater chance we have to truly change the world, for the better.

See you on the Discovery Series!
Love and Blessings!

“Don’t talk to me!” I snapped at my boyfriend/future husband, as I slammed the bathroom door (read: the only door in our Greenwich Village studio apartment) and then proceeded to sit in the bathtub with a washcloth over my eyes for the next two hours.
Not one of my proudest moments.
It was 2005. I had been self-employed for just over a year and had just returned from giving a presentation to 300 people at Con Edison of New York.
And I didn’t understand, at the time, that I was highly sensitive.
All I could think was, “What’s wrong with me? How can I so vivaciously give a “Standing O” presentation and then come home to treat the one I love so dearly, so poorly? And why do I feel like the life has been sucked out of me? What’s WRONG with me??”
Now, all these years later all I can do is forgive that younger version of Heather and be grateful that I now know how to manage my highly sensitive self so my traits are working for me and my business (and that my boyfriend from that time did become my husband – can you believe it?!).
See, I’ve learned that there are two kinds of Highly Sensitive Entrepreneurs (HSEs): “The Hiders” and “The Pushers”. I’m a recovering Pusher.
I could and would push my way through just about anything. It took every ounce of life out of me, often made me sick and not necessarily pleasant to be around (obviously), but I would get done what needed to be done at any cost (which, obviously, there was).
Oh, and boy was I angry.
- Angry that the world demanded so much from me.
- Angry that I couldn’t give it without hurting myself or others.
- Angry that I couldn’t say no.
- Angry that I wasn’t made like the rest of the world (why isn’t everyone else exhausted like I am?).
And scared. Oh, so very scared.
- That I would be found out and the rickety world I had painstakingly built would come crashing down around me.
When I first discovered that I was highly sensitive. I thought all other HSEs were like me, but through my work with hundreds of my Business Miracles Community Members. I came to understand “The Hiders”.
If you’re a Hider you so long to shine your talents through your business, but just the thought of possibly being overwhelmed is so terrifying to you that you take all precautions to be sure that doesn’t happen. So, instead you:
- Take every coaching course and program that you can because you “don’t know enough yet”.
- Take care of everyone else around you first leaving very little time for yourself and your business. (“After all, this is the responsible thing to do,” you say.)
- Come up with great ideas about how others can improve their programs and spend a lot of energy judging, giving recommendations for improvement and then deciding that this “isn’t working for me” when in truth you haven’t really been implementing the work (again, all because you’re so terrified of what will happen when you do).
And you are also angry.
- So angry that you then beat yourself up. You ask yourself over and over, “Why can’t I just do what I need to do?”
So, which one are you? A Pusher or a Hider?
I should also mention the “Combo Platter”: the HSE who vacillates between the two. You push-push-push-wear-yourself-out-hide-hide-hide-beat-yourself-up-guilt-guilt-guilt-push-push-push-wear-yourself …
You get the picture.
Whether you are a Pusher, Hider or Combo Platter you can’t continue to live this way (I couldn’t) and your business for sure can’t thrive this way (mine didn’t). It’s time to find the peaceful road through …
It’s time to embrace your high sensitivities, learn how they are business assets when you use them as strengths, and how when you do this, miracle after miracle takes place.
This is how I live now and how my business thrives now.
If you’re ready for this, too, then I would like to invite you to join me for a very special ALL NEW A Course In Business Miracles®: 21-Day Discovery Series (completely my gift to you) where we will come together to develop a different way, the way of Business Miracles. No more “pushing” and no more “hiding”.
It takes 21 days to change a habit. Let’s get started.

Love and Blessings!
