What are you teaching at this year’s WELL Summit, Nell?

I am so excited about this workshop, especially exposing why this method of “up-leveling” is relevant today as my business grows. I will be teaching a quick way to check in with your shadow and identify the pearls of wisdom you can grab from your fears and negative blocks. Through this not-so-fun task, I’ll set you up to celebrate your weak points and set a track for your business to get over these hurdles. We will speed journal and set you your business—or life; I use this in my personal life as well—up to reach the next level by creating the vision statement that truly motivates. In other words, you must honor the dark to reach the light. Also—I’ll provide you with some super great little guide books to get you back on track when life serves you lemons.

What are you hoping to empower attendees with?

I love the term “empowerment”: It’s what Spot Spa is all about! Our bodies and mind already have deep knowing; this session will give you a tool to mobilize your business quickly and simply, by looking within. We all have a unique perspective and can quickly align with our love and light if we just take moments to honor our process.  Never give your identity or power to someone else;  this work session will help you help your business. That may mean hiring someone, but we can decide that when we set the right vision and intention (wink wink!).

What’s your favorite ritual for health?

Oh my gosh this is so big for me right now… GOOD HABITS ARE HARD TO BREAK! I start my days (even when I travel) with Dragon Herb’s Tonic Alchemy and Sun Potion’s He Shu Wu, Reishi and Tocos. This is the best way for me to start my day, brighten my energy and get my supportive herbs to combat stress, and support my internal health.  Plus, I get my greens right away!
Also—I walk my talk when I teach intuitive building 101 to my clients and staff through medicine card reading.  I pull cards to help guide me on decisions large or small. Spot has a small “Love Heals” deck that I cherish as well as a great animal/medicine card deck. The reason I believe in “card pulling” is it helps me understand that my intuition isn’t “crazy”; cards seem random, but they very rarely are.
Last, everyone knows this about me: I get support through massage and acupuncture, so my patience is deeper and my love for myself is honored.

What exciting things are you working on this year, Nell?

Taking the big leap to total commitment of life and business goals.  I have a dream to expand Spot and have had one for many years. I am trying everything to keep Spot Spa, my baby!, healthy and growing while I hatch the most important business that I can think of for my life purpose and my community.

Why is this relevant now?  I am growing as a leader; keeping track of the goals for Spot as well as a “dream”  is a huge “Jedi Mind Trick” since Spot is ultimately real and the dream is unseen. Women are on the rise and love is what matters, so I am here to help myself do what I was set to do: transcend the moment with love, pure, raw, simple love.
