I'm Geeta

I laugh till I snort and am obsessed with entrepreneurship, empowerment and alignment with one’s truth.

You don’t have to be perfect to be successful.

I got my first paid writing gig when I was 12.

Which makes me sound like a super genius or something right? Ha. The truth is, I almost flunked essay writing when I was 10. My father, horrified that anyone carrying his DNA could bomb English writing, devised a program where my two younger sisters and I had to write 3 essays a week all summer or we couldn’t go out to play.

To his credit, he made it really interesting. We each had a scrapbook and we’d cut out images from magazines and create fictitious characters. We’d write reviews of our favourite bedtime stories. We’d write reports on family outings. And my Dad would offer suggestions on structure, writing stronger headlines, using metaphors and more.

By the time that summer drew to an end, I realized I loved storytelling. This thing that I hated was what I was born to do. 

I was just lucky that I had a coach very early in my life. #thanksdad

Today, in my work helping coaches, consultants and course creators build powerful online programs around their expertise, I use my ability to dissect people’s internal stories to listen carefully for the beliefs and filters that are holding them back.

I listen past the fear to find your strengths, your unique magic, the thing that ignites your curiosity and fuels endless exploration.

I listen for the thing you have a lot of – confusion, angst, trauma – and together we flip the script and turn your biggest obstacles into your selling point.

I’ve built a whole method around this. And I’ve taught it to others so now I have people on my team that can do this too. #areyounext?

SIMPLE IS SCALABLE

As a recovering overcomplicator, I have firsthand experience in the lifechanging benefits of simplifying what you do. We scaled our business past $1M when I cut out the extraneous and focused on what excited me. 

You don’t need to turn into a marketer to be successful online.

What you need to be though is… all of you. 

Which means success starts with taking a compassionate but clear look at where you are and how you got here. And then discovering how everything you’ve tried to hide or change or eliminate about yourself is perhaps actually your strength.

You just never used it this way before.

We’ve helped clients over and over turn chronic confusion into clarity by learning to embrace it and use it as a portal.

If you want a DIY version of some of the practices we use, read my book “How to Live Your Vision” so you can fall back in love with yourself. 

And then turn the warmth of your attention inwards with my second book, “The Power of Ponder” and the soon-to-be-released “Ponderisms” card deck.

Ponder (verb): to think or consider especially quietly, soberly, and deeply Ponderism™ (noun): A question that leads to self illumination.

If you (like me) have ever felt overwhelmed by the volume and contradiction of the advice available out there, I have great news. The trick lies in using other peoples’ wisdom, formulas and process merely as a starting point. Experiment. Try things. But never ignore your gut.

Success (by my definition) happens when you’re able to “riff off and duplicate” an existing method. You make it yours. Your warmth, your humour, your transformation, your love.

This is why I like to teach (and learn) in frameworks instead of “formulas”. Frameworks leave room for your own wisdom and magic. They’re flexible and adaptable and that’s why so many of our successful clients’ businesses look different from each others’. Even though they feel the same.

DEFINE SUCCESS YOUR WAY

Dude, I’m so far from perfect, it’s a joke.

My desk is always messy.

I turn into a pumpkin and crash most nights around 8:30pm #canttakemeanywhere

I don’t have my driver’s license (yet). I ride a purple bicycle.

I’m the least educated member of my family.

I snort when I laugh and crinkle my nose in a really weird way.

I buy too many art supplies and make bad art.

I can’t follow systems that need 100% adherence. If it doesn’t work at 70%, it ain’t for me.

I have come to believe that one’s failings are just opportunities in disguise.

Embrace yours.

FALL ON YOUR FACE. PICK YOURSELF UP. TAKE NOTES. MONETIZE.

Most people are so ashamed when they fall on their faces that they forget to pick themselves up and they definitely don’t take notes.

Do.

It’s where opportunity begins.

And if you’re willing to find a solution to your own problems, there’s a whole world of people just like you praying for you to show up.

Be an answer to someone’s prayer.

It’s why you’re here.

I can help.
