Rings of Growth

Leave a comment Standard

Like a fast growing tree
I can feel the pain
But I do believe
These rings of growth
Will help keep me afloat 
Because without this green
I don’t think I could reach my dreams
It’s nothing but full steam
From here on out
Self belief is the key
Yeah you know what I’m about
No time to waste here
Just erase the doubt
No time to be victimized 
Or sitting pretty in ugly lies 
It’s time to buy into yourself
Connect to your higher-self
To bring your purpose to the ground
Where realness is found
Where safety is the sound
Where abundance provides hundreds
Or maybe more
Are you willing to learn and grow?
Are you willing to explore?

City of Growth

Leave a comment Standard

Chicago is hands down my favorite city in the United States. I say United States simply because I have not traveled abroad yet (keyword: yet). Despite growing up near Philly, I only went into the city for concerts and sporting events, so when I moved to Chicago for art school, I experienced culture shock. The trains, busses, noise, scents, people, taxis, big buildings – they all were very much overwhelming to me. Even though it was a huge growth period for me, I fell in love with Chicago.

The city of Chicago will always be known as the city of growth to me. It is the first place I went without family or friends. It is where I learned to heal myself and gained a lot of clarity about my truth. I experienced many growth periods there and I am grateful for all of them.

I’m currently in a big growth period. My wife and I are about to leave New Jersey and head to the outskirts of Chicago. Knowing that we will be in the midwest very soon stimulates various experiences from my time there. I will never forget the time I ascended the subway and made my way to ground level, looking up at all the buildings. I felt incredibly alive. I met so many awesome people at Columbia College and later on at InVision. My experiences in Chicago have truly shaped the man I am today.

I miss the energy of Chicago. I miss the pace of life there. I miss the abundance of opportunity. I miss the sound of the trains and I miss walking out to the lake. Chicago will always hold a special place in my heart and I am excited to be see the city again very soon.

It is always interesting to return to a place you have been before. It is never quite the same because you know you have changed. I expect things will not feel the same way I did when I was last in Chicago. I do, however, anticipate more growth. I look forward to growing our brand and kicking ass. As much as I love this city, this visit is well, just a visit. When it starts to get cold, we will cary on into the unknown.

Find Your Freedom,
Andrew

Biggest Damn Growth Period

Leave a comment Standard

The beauty of living in a RV is that if plans change, which they often do, we can easily accommodate those changes. When we lived in one place, we could only focus on the area that we lived in. With our house on wheels, if we get an opportunity, we just hookup our truck to the fifth wheel and head out.

Well, our plans have changed. Originally, we were going to go to Massachusetts, however, Heather got a job as a yoga teacher in Illinois. Pretty awesome, right? I actually found a spiritual store not far from where she will be teaching where I might have the possibility of doing readings and energy work there. That’s what I did for a while when I lived in Wilmington, NC years ago.

We are still figuring things out as we go. It’s not always easy starting over, especially when you had something that was a success and let it go. I’m happy to be on the road though. I’m ready to teach more, have more adventures and share my experiences with others. 

This is the biggest damn growth period I have been in. And well, it should be. I wouldn’t want to walk through life learning and growing less. If I want to have more, then growth is my best friend. I’m green as they come now. Living in a RV and teaching clairvoyance – it is rocking my world! Where once I was comfortable, I am no longer. I am bathing in the unknown. 

My wife read some quote from online the other day and it said that the best things in life make you fat, drunk and pregnant. I actually had a few beers the other day and I was quickly reminded why I quit drinking. It took a full day for me to clear my head. I didn’t like it. Sex and food – I totally get those, haha! But, on a serious note, I think the best things in life are those that scare the shit out of us. I know what scares the shit out of me, but if I allow myself to push past the fear, I always feel so proud of myself and happy.

What makes you afraid? If you overcome the fear, what is on the other side?

Andrew

Ignite

Leave a comment Standard

Struggle sat in my skin
But now my astral body is knocking to come in
Did I take my first breath, for I feel alive
Now I’m fascinated with the dream within
What blew up, is the question that comes to mind
Grief is like medicine for the creative soul
A new birth brings inspiration 
A fire burning and new sensations 
I’m the man that will pack his bags and head for the woods
To burrow deeper into my truth
The agony, the pain
My own resistance to blame
But the sun is always there
Will you open up to it?
Will you feel the energy?
Will you come back into this life?
With a drive no one could catch
A mindset loyal to its cause?
And a heart ready to play ball
Dreams are seeds ready to burst into life
I feel a change inside, I’m ready to ignite

Seniority

Leave a comment Standard

What if your energy set the tone of your life? Think about it, English professors discuss the topic of tone when readings novels. Well, if your life is a book, how would you feel if someone else was setting the tone? Would you like the book? Do you like how it ends? What if your energy set the tone of your life?

Seniority to me just means that you get to be the shot caller of your own empire. Your empire being all the different aspects of your life. What if you could dictate how you earned money? What if you did things your way? What if you were just – you? That may seem easy to some of you and it may also seem difficult. It just depends on how much seniority you have in your life right now.

How does one gain seniority? Well the answer could be different for everyone, but for me I know that when I gain more clarity in my life, I develop certainty. When I have reached a certain level of certainty, I usually take action. I had a vision, it was clear, my confidence was restored and then I finally execute. When I walk further down the path of my truth, I strengthen my seniority. Like Mario collecting gold coins, I boost my seniority. 

When you establish seniority, your bond with yourself grows stronger. The wise part of you that holds your purpose sees an opportunity for your truth to become reality. What if what your “suppose to do” is simply a thing of the past? What if your dreams were not just thoughts or ideas, but seeds sprouting from the Earth? What your dreams were not just fantasies of the sky, but real as the ground below your feet? Seniority takes time. I’m not going to try to see the idea that it just happens overnight, but it all starts with awareness. From there it is a decision, do you want someone else setting the tone of your life, OR do YOU want to be the one setting the tone?

Find Your Freedom,

Andrew

How to grow your dog walking business!

Leave a comment Standard

My wife and I ran a dog walking business for a little over two years. We experienced tremendous growth our first year which required us to hire employees the following year. In March of 2018 we officially sold our business to travel in a RV full-time. We are now working on building our new brand – Souls Gone Wild. My wife teaches yoga and I teach meditation. Anyway, we wanted to share some of our secrets on how to grow your dog walking business!

The first topic I would like to bring up is word of mouth. Don’t be shy about talking about your business, especially when you are just starting out. When it comes to dog walking, trust is a big issue, so when you do a great job for one of your clients, they most likely will refer your business to a neighbor, friend or family member. As an incentive, we would always offer a free walk if a client referred us. Something else that is good to have are business cards. Sometimes you meet prospective clients while you are out dog walking. It is always good to have extra business cards on you, so when someone asks about your services, you can give them your card with all of your information.

That leads me to the next topic – internet presence. You will need a web site that has all your information for prospective clients to review. It is always good to have the following information available; contact information, service area, services offered, rates, etc. Get your business on google and yelp.  This gives people a way to find your business, connect them to your web site and a way to leave reviews.

Ah, yes – reviews. This is an important topic. Having reviews gives you credibility. When people find you on the internet and like what you offer, they will usually finish with seeing what clients think about your business. Having reviews puts you on the map. Don’t be afraid to ask for reviews in the beginning. We asked for reviews and some people ignored it and others were happy to leave us one. Others also left us reviews without us even asking, which was great. After a while we stopped asking. 

We had a lot of success gaining clients from Rover and Care. With rover, clients will reach out to you. The main thing to be aware with Rover though is that most dog owners that use rover usually expect low rates and for their to be no “policies.” We found that some people were not bothered at all that we were a business and had certain rules, but some will definitely be turned off by it. Care was great because we could look at dog owners posts and see their general location, dog walking needs and expectations. I would look at the site a few times a day and would constantly be reaching out to people. The key to both sites is to respond quickly and setup a meet and greet. When we showed up to someones house we a business t-shirt on, business insurance, reviews and background checks we would almost always win over the client. 

Something my wife and I did pretty often in the beginning stages of our business were mock-ups. Mock-ups is a technique you do in meditation to attract your needs or desires. It’s kind of like the law of attraction. This is actually something I teach. More information can be found on our web site: www.soulsgonewild.com

Bottom line, if you do a good job, speak up and put yourself out there, you will do just fine. Be persistent and don’t fret about competition. There are plenty of dog walkers and dog walking business out there. It is good to aware of your competition, but that doesn’t necessarily mean you have to be in competition with them. That will only suck away your energy and deter you from focusing on your own business. 

If you have the money to do online advertising, go for it. I think it can help, but I don’t think it is necessary. We did just fine without it. Find what works best for you! If you feel you need some help or more insight I would be willing to do business consulting, however, if you are starting or operating your business near Philadelphia, PA – I won’t be able to provide consulting.

Good Luck and have fun!
