All of us have gifts that we are here to bring to the world. For some of us, the gifts are ones that surprise us and put our lives on a distinct trajectory.
While on a nature walk with a friend, Bianca De Reus discovered she had a gift for communicating with animals. This is how it went down… She came upon a snake. Initially, a bit scared, Bianca realised she could understand what the snake was saying to her. It was telling her to embrace her gift and connect animals to people.
This was a turning point for Bianca. She was already practising energy healing for a few years and decided to explore her gift by completing a few courses to become a qualified animal communicator.
Still working in corporate finance, Bianca often found herself questioning her purpose in life. After a lot of self-analysis, she started working with people who shared her interest in connecting people to their animals and soon found her feet in the industry.
About three years ago, Bianca was made redundant from her corporate finance role. She started doing a lot more spiritual work with friends and family and occasionally she would get paid. This made her realise that this was what she loved doing and that she wanted the freedom to do things her way and not have to be reliant on anyone else, so that was when she started up her own business “Connecting Soul Beings”
Bianca’s purpose is Connecting Soul Beings by teaching Soul-to-Soul Connection – “I do this every single day, and I absolutely LOVE IT!”
Bianca’s Three Tips for Business Owners
– The importance of Planning
– Know that it’s okay to make mistakes
– It is okay to show up as you. You don’t have to fake it. Just be yourself and show up as you.
The skills and knowledge Bianca recommends you learn quickly when you are starting out in business:
“Definitely planning and knowing where you are at and what you want to achieve. It is also important to make sure that you have checkpoints in place. An example would be all your numbers (profit and loss), it’s an important skill that I have learnt. Another skill that is critical to have is having absolute focus on your clients doing the best in your abilities to help your clients, but also knowing that it is okay to not have all the information. Build your network so that you have people to refer to and help you.”
Bianca on being a HerBusiness Network Member:
“I love the fact that Suzi and her team has developed the ‘show up, speak up and lift up’ moves. That really resonats with me and it is okay to just show up no matter what I found that really helpful.
I also love the Goals Groups. That’s helping me right now to keep me accountable. I have also made great connections with the group overall.
There is always something in the education that HerBusiness provicdes that gives me ideasl that I have never thought about. And, that for me is extremely helpful. HerBusiness has also taught me to learn to ask for help, because this was something that I really struggled with. But I’ve learned it’s okay to get help.
You’re not alone in this.”
