Using the Powers of Numerology to elevate your business success
close
You may have heard phrases like - 'Your days are numbered?' or 'I've got your number?' There is some truth here! Why? Numbers are innate, numbers are energy, numbers are inherent, everything has a number associated with it.

Jo Soley, founder of Bizology, is a business coach, who helps passionate female entrepreneurs reach the next level of success through relationship marketing, as people do business with you if they like, know and trust you! Jo infuses the power of numerology in her work with her clients, as numerology helps you like, know and trust yourself, and in turn others! Numerology has transformed Jo’s life and business to such a degree that she now uses the energy of numbers to help her clients do the same.

Her services are now related to connecting her clients to the energies of the numbers that they are working with in their life and business in order to help elevate their business success. In her presentation, Jo will connect you to the energies of the numbers by showing you what can be achieved when we tune into our personal energies and vibrations of the key numbers of our lives. She’ll share what numerology is and isn’t, how the energies of the numbers affect us on a daily basis and will show you how to calculate your life path number, what this means and how to harness this energy in your business. When we connect to the rhythms and cycles of our path and our business path, life becomes much easier and much more rewarding.

We all have that feeling that we could be doing something more in our lives but taking that first step into the unknown is scary. Well fear that fear and do it!

ABOUT JENNY

5 Keys to Make It Happen
Natalia Edelmann
close
So, you want to make it happen too?

When you feel lost or stuck, it’s like losing your keys… you’re looking everywhere and when you finally find them, they’ve been in your pocket the whole time! It’s that feeling that no matter what you do, you can’t seem to make it happen.

Let me share with you 5 keys that can unlock and reveal the doors that are keeping you from reaching your highest potential and leading a soul-led life.

Everything starts with intention, but intention starts with getting clear. But even before that, it starts with you. Self-Discovery and Self-Visualization are the first two keys that can unlock the many doors that you otherwise thought were hidden or closed.

To reach your full potential, you need the energy and mindset to be courageous and strong, which comes with self-care, self-acceptance and self-love, the last three keys. When you accept yourself for all that you are and love yourself enough to keep going and persevere, you can achieve anything.

As you learn to use the keys, you begin to connect with mind, body and soul, step into your power, and make it happen!
