Built to last? Or not!

by | Business, Numerology

That’s the difference a firm foundation makes.

The nature of your foundation determines your success or otherwise.  It determines whether your business will last or not.

How firm is your foundation?


Freedom and success are created on a firm foundation.

When your foundation isn’t firm your security is compromised so you spend time and exert energy in an effort to keep everything on an even keel.

Making decisions is easier when you have a firm foundation on which to make those decisions.

What do I mean by that?  When I work with my clients, we firm up the foundations of their business and their life so that making decisions that are aligned for them becomes smoother and easier.

They know what they’re willing to accept and what they’re not.  They know the lines that can’t be crossed.

Investing time into creating a firm foundation increases the level of freedom and ease you allow yourself to feel.

My clients operate from a firm foundation created through my signature PATH process.


Having a firm foundation means your business is sustainable, repeatable, scalable.

Your foundation determines your success, similarly to how the foundation of a building determines the integrity of the build.



This is a universal truth that’s true for stacks of stones, buildings, your life, business, relationships, pretty much everything.

If the stones in your stack are not balance, the stack will topple.  If the bottom stone is not secure, the stack will not stay erect.  If the ground underneath moves, the stack witll most likely fall over.

A sky-scraper requires a deeper and stronger foundation than a one-storey home.

As you’re building your business it’s important you prepare your foundation for the size of business you aspire to have.  Are you building a multi-storey structure or a woodshed?

Your foundations are your core; the bedrock beneath you and your life.

They’re the center of your strength and power – they underpin everything.

You’ll sink or swim depending on the strength of your foundations and whether they’re appropriate for what you’re building.


Rock bottom may be a solid foundation to build your life on. JK Rowling says it was for her.

My question for you is, why wait till you’re at rock bottom to create your own solid foundation to build your business and your life on?

Whether you’re building your foundation from rock bottom or firming up your existing foundation, message me if you’d like my help.
