Donna had gone through a lot of personal development work over the years but she still felt lost. When she thought about attending yet another personal development course, she came across Jamie’s coaching and was instantly intrigued. She researched and read his book, “Clarity” and immediately had a connection with those principals.
When Donna went to Jamie’s first weekend retreat she found herself unable to participate in conversation during the sessions due to a life long fear of public speaking. After sitting through some sessions and listening intently she started feeling quite overwhelmed and not being able to explain how this was affecting her physically. She describes it as a feeling of something falling away.
Since then Donna has been able to get up and speak publicly to share her experience with others in meet ups or conferences.
Because Donna had these realizations, she is now able to help other creatives who are stuck like Donna was at speaking engagements and in creative projects. Donna approaches helping other from a creative block and flow view. The results Donna has experienced after releasing the block with these creative groups is noticing them working together with ease and looking past the pre-conceived ideas of each other.
Commercially the decision of Donna starting this organization of helping creatives with block and flows has given her something new that she really loves doing.
“It just seemed like massive amounts of insecurity or beliefs about myself or things I thought were true about me seemed to be falling away; that was the moment that changed everything.”
“I saw the power of it; I saw what’s possible because it changes behavior. Once that thinking isn’t there, then the behavior pulls away as well.”
“I’m not improving anyone’s creativity I’m just speaking about what got in the way.”
“I love helping people see this. I love supporting people, I love working with them and I get paid for it; it’s amazing.”
