“Once I found my purpose – everything else fell into place.”
Becky Cohen of The Conscious Revolution knows what it’s like to desperately search for your place in the world. Following an unfulfilling 15-year corporate career in project management, Becky became determined to create a business aligned with her own passions of spirituality, personal development, and business transformation.
In particular, Becky drew on the modality of human design which focuses on a true understanding of who each person is meant to become in this life, and then using that to create more purpose, freedom and impact.
Now at The Conscious Revolution, Becky facilitates a supportive community for unfulfilled professionals, helping them to redesign their life around their purpose through online one-on-one and group coaching programs.
This commitment to personal growth can also be found in Becky’s personal life, where she enjoys all things spiritual, animal rights, and immersing herself in new cultures during her travels. She is also committed to developing her business, a commitment that led her to join the HerBusiness Network.
With the numerous resources, and amazing community of women, Becky is set to create her ideal business and empower even more professionals to discover their true life purpose.
Who’s your favourite entrepreneur and why?
At the moment – Simon Griffiths – Co-founder & CEO of Who gives a crap. An amazing innovative B Corp – who gives 50% of all their profits to building toilets and water sanitisation for those in need globally. They are having a massive global impact and their Marketing is brilliant.
Why did you start your business and what gave you the idea?
I spent over 15 years in a corporate career in Project Management. Whilst it was a successful career I was always miserable in it. I worked for many Corps that went against every value in my system. I was always passionate about Spiritual and Personal Growth my whole life and always wanted to start my own business. I discovered through the pandemic when many of my friends were losing their jobs and didn’t want to be in the 9-5 world anymore that I could help them find another way. So it morphed into a coaching program that encompassed all of me – Spiritual personal and business transformation all into one unique program.
What do you enjoy most about running your own business?
On the coaching and Human design side – helping people have a breakthrough in discovering the life purpose and watching their transformations/personal flourish beyond their expectations.
What three pieces of advice do you wish you’d been given when you started?
- Marketing – not to listen to all the guru’s conflicting advice. You don’t have to do everything! Work on your strengths, what comes naturally to you instead of investing time and money implementing things that don’t work specifically for you or your business.
- De-conditioning from the hustle lifestyle of corporate and the path to stepping into alignment and flow. Whatever you disliked about your bosses in the past – you become that yourself to yourself. Sometimes doing less is more. Finding the true meaning of work-life-balance.
- This one was really keeping me stuck for years prior to starting. understanding that Clarity of what I would do next wasn’t actually what was holding me back from getting out and starting my own business. I was the problem – I had to work on myself first which I discovered when I invested in coaching and personal development programs.
What advice would YOU give someone thinking about starting a business?
Finding your Why – purpose is everything. I spent years asking myself the wrong questions when trying to get out of my career. WHAT could I do instead, HOW am I going to do it? It’s why I was stuck for over 15 years in a career I was miserable in. Once I found my purpose – everything else fell into place.
What skills and knowledge areas would you recommend those starting out in business get acquainted with quickly?
Work on yourself first before the business side. You are your brand. Understanding who you are, what you stand for/against and working on your Mindset, conquering the unconscious limiting beliefs, emotional fears etc is the place to start. Whatever is in the unconscious is what is holding you in your comfort zone and holding you back from making a move.
There’s only so far you can get on your own with free resources. Investing in the right mentors and ensuring you have a community of like-minded individuals who understand your journey is the most important part to do before trying to build your empire.
What does your IDEAL business look like? Even if you’re not there yet, what would it look like if your business was ideal?
- Stage 1 -It would be moving away from Private Coaching and Consulting work into selling group programs. having a consistent flow of leads/clients signing up. Being able to run a 12 week program 3 times a year.
- Stage 2 – 2 terms of a 12 month program where people can enter either term 1 or 2 and stay for 1 or both terms
What problem does being a Member of the HerBusiness Network solve for you and your business? And, how?
A couple for me. The first one is help with the marketing side of my business (still trying to crack the god damn code!) Second – having access to amazing network of women which was definitely missing for me before this.
