I rap with spiritual business coach and yoga teacher, Amy McDonald, about growing your business, making money, yoga, and spirituality and how to make a living doing what you truly love. We discuss the yoga instructor business model and what it looks like to make money with ease versus struggling to make a living as a full time teacher. We tackle questions such as, how do you know if it is time to leave your current job and jump into a wellness career and how do you go about doing it with confidence and clarity? We discuss where money and spirituality intersect and if it is possible to have both with integrity. And guess what? It is possible! You can be in a happy place where you are doing what you love, teaching others about health, wellness, yoga, and spirituality AND make money while doing it! We also talk about the concept of finding a ‘space’ to teach and realizing that a space can be an online forum instead of a room or studio.

What you’ll get out of tuning in:
