Are you tired of battling between “what has been working” and “what you really want” in your business?

Are you going through an identity crisis in your business?

Ugh…yes!

Press play to watch the 1-Minute Video!

Do you find yourself sticking to the same strategies, clients, and content only because it’s worked already? And do you kinda hate it?

Wanting to change a business that’s been “working so well” for you financially can seem counterintuitive to a better life, but hear me out…

If you want to create a legacy business that’s sustainable, and not at other people’s expense (especially your own!) letting go of what isn’t serving you is crucial!

You want to say yes, you want to keep helping your community, and you want to grow.

I get it. I was a former nonprofit fundraiser and grassroots organizer. And when you layer in being a WOC and first-generation immigrant — like you, I just love giving.

I give it all to my clients and community.

I did monthly events for two years straight. And yes, it brought in clients, but it had me EXHAUSTED.

People always talk about “abundance” in money, but I had to redefine abundance as having more TIME as well. Because abundance in money alone was sucking the life out of me.

We only have one life to live. And now, more than ever, we’re reminded of what we could miss out on.

So, I started being more intentional with my time by Marie Kondo’ing my business.

Instead of leaning on what had been surface-level working for my business, I…

  1. Deleted (Successful!!) programs and services that no longer brought me joy, and focused on ONE signature program (This one)
  2. Hired the right team members so I could focus on my zone of genius
  3. Made sure I was HAPPY with how I was spending my time

This is why I created the Color Your Dreams Inner Circle.

To focus on supporting my clients to create a business that matches the lifestyle they deserve.

Here is a picture of me and four generations of my family. I created my business for them.

Regardless of what’s happening in the world, my clients are continuing to see growth in their time, money, and legacy.

These are messages from clients in 2020 to present

“I’m a huge fan of Elaine. If you are someone that really wants to stand out as someone who is doing things in a thoughtful high touch way deeply connecting with people’s hearts, I highly recommend Elaine as a coach, a mastermind leader, and also a speaker for your events”

– SELENA SOO, PUBLICITY STRATEGIST

Here’s the deal, you must apply to the Color Your Dreams Inner Circle.

Because this program is NOT for new business owners, I want to make sure I can co-create the best results with you.

I love new business owners (and I work with them through 1:1 coaching (you can schedule a call with me to see if this is a good fit), but this program is designed for a very specific person. It’s for established consultants and coaches who are asking the hard question —

Do you have the life and lifestyle you truly want?

could be for you if…

  • You’ve been full-time in your business for at least a year.
  • You ​​understand social media is not the foundation of your business.
  • You don’t need the business basics taught again, but want to focus back on using your knowledge to build an ideal life.
  • You know how to make money, but you crave accountability to make money in a way that honors your true self.

In this program, you get to define the monetary goal because you know what feels good to you, and then we can work together to make it happen while creating your ideal life.

I have a client who is projected to make $250k.
I have another client who is happy with making $300k/year.
And another perfectly happy with $100k.

There is no judgment on what monetary goal you have.

The important thing is making sure your business matches the life you truly want.

I want to teach people how to create both impact and income, while still being there for their family

Here’s the thing. I am a proud daughter of two immigrants from the Philippines.

I thought following all the rules, getting straight A’s, and even being valedictorian, would guarantee me success.

It did, in one way, but it didn’t necessarily guarantee me fulfillment and happiness.

I thought I had to choose stability over fulfillment.

And thought that if I chose fulfillment, I wouldn’t have time to take care of my loved ones.

I realize, I CAN have both. I can have fulfillment while also creating income and impact with my clients and family. And now, I’ve realized that “stability” is a smokescreen because I’ve lost relationships and even that nine-to-five job that everyone says will be the safe bet.

You don’t have to sacrifice what you want for a stable business. You CAN create a business that fulfills you, your lifestyle and your legacy. Are you ready to start?

This is the foundation. Our success is a reflection of the inner work. I know a lot of entrepreneurs including myself who have spent thousands on more intricate ways to get leads. And I will tell you, if you don’t get your inner work in place.

Through subconscious work, we learn how to manage blocks and triggers to continue to be the best version of yourself.

We are the writers of our own stories. We will identify what is blocking us, go deep in and move forward.

We get to write about our present and future, and learn to be grateful from our past.

Systems and Structures

OMG. I used to be so reactive. Launch, then rest for a day, and launch again. I also decided to do all the things based on emotions. I would do a challenge one month, a webinar another month, and a freebie another. I never looked at my numbers.

I go through this carefully with my clients and will share with you my framework on how I make my decision based on numbers and alignment, rather than emotional reactions. Please note, that each business is different. I will not give you a copy and paste of what I do in my business.

Instead, we intentionally look at what works for you with your gifts.

Scaling is not just about sales. It is also about looking at what you are spending, making sure there is a profit margin. We will start tracking, understanding cash flow and projections (this sh*t use to scare me, and now I love it!).

Once a quarter, we will go through your numbers. What I mean by numbers is not just your sales, but also profit margins.

By looking at our numbers we can help you make decision not just based by emotions or goldy shiny object syndrome, but based on what really works and focusing on.

Sustainable businesses are the only kind we’re interested in!

Sustainability in business isn’t just about sales. It’s about what will sustain you over time, financially AND energetically.

My clients and I continue to work on what’s sustaining us at the moment and look ahead to what we can build for a business and legacy that will stand the tests of time.

The Color Your Dreams® Approach

This is the approach that my clients will follow in no particular order depending on your current situation, lived experiences, and what makes the most sense for you.

This process is adaptable to meet where you are, and there’s no pressure to do it at any timeline that doesn’t honor you.

Our intention for this Color Your Dreams process is that you stay true to your personal legacy, while my team and I hold you accountable to your vision.

N

Your Personal Legacy

The life you lead and the future you create.

We create the business, career, and life we want to honor the sacrifices our family made before us and affirm a new legacy built on different choices. To truly be successful, we make sure this is foundational to everything you do before we move forward.

We believe that connecting people to each other and building deep relationships is the ultimate key to success. We strive to connect to cultural heritage, self, and community in our work and for our clients.

In everything we do, we see the opportunity to lead our clients closer to themselves so they can create spaces that diversify the business space through self-healing, inclusion, equity, sustainable business practices, and wealth building.

N

People And Culture

The people and the purpose you stand by.

We believe women of color and allies should actualize and empower businesses, careers and legacies that are healthily intertwined, create generational wealth, and give back to their communities and themselves.

We recognize that, above all, family or chosen family is the #1 reason we show up. We honor our families and ancestors, nurture the sisterhood family we’ve chosen, and support the communities we live in. We know that communities are stronger with the perspectives and lived experience of everyone, and we learn and practice anti-racism to the best of our current ability, every day.

We see that our clients value a legacy that goes beyond themselves, so in our own business and theirs, we help our clients identify how to create the right team to support the people and purpose they stand by.

N

Accountability to Align

The support and the clarity to stay true to you.

We guide women of color, and allies, who’ve seen success in their business or career, realign their lifestyle and legacy. Our clients come to us tired of sticking with “what works” to make money over going for what calls to them.

We know that you can have both a successful personal AND professional life. Through 1:1 and group coaching programs, we can support you with a purposeful pivot that meets your needs and wants while uplifting accountability, community, and alignment with your true self.

In doing so, our clients receive weekly accountability action-plans from our team so that you can live in your true self as opposed to being a “prisoner of your own success.” We are committed to you becoming the best version of yourself.

N

Measuring to Manifest

The numbers and the vision to build your legacy.

Our mission is to support WOC and allies to pivot to an aligned and purposeful lifestyle and legacy in their businesses and careers, while collectively creating a sustainable and equitable future. They do that by understanding their numbers while affirming their vision.

You know the importance of charging a competitive rate, while not playing down the narrative of WOC being paid less. As a result, we support you by creating a system and tracking your numbers so you can create generational wealth, while being able to give back to your community.

As we help our clients build businesses that propel their legacy forward, we focus on how their business can support a life that nurtures them and creates space for wealth in time, love, and self.

WHO HAVE I WORKED WITH?

Marketers, coaches, dog trainers, social workers, engineers, government employees, fashion designers, nonprofit consultants, c-suite executives, chefs, college students, mothers, physical therapists, jewelry designers, and authors.

ANY REQUIREMENTS?

Yes, you need to be making consistent income and understand your ideal client and your client journey. This is not a program for newbie entrepreneurs starting their first small businesses. I need to know you have the mindset to make money. From there, we focus on scaling your startup to success with the right systems and team that feels aligned to you.

WHEN DOES THIS COURSE BEGIN?

This is a 12-month program, and it starts once you sign up!

DO I GET PERSONAL 1:1 ATTENTION?

YES! You receive 1:1 SOS calls as needed with me or one of our coaches.

WILL IT WORK FOR ME?

How much time, energy and intention you provide will determine the success you experience. At the same time, I always instill open communication and feedback so if there is anything you want to learn more on, ask me.

HOW MANY PEOPLE WILL BE ACCEPTED IN THE CIRCLE?

We cap at 17 members at all times.

DOES THE CIRCLE INCLUDE IN-PERSON RETREATS?

YES! We have two. One in March and another in October.

HOW MUCH DOES THE CIRCLE COST?

We’re not sharing that information publicly because the pricing varies. We have a full-pay option, an accelerated plan, and a twelve-month extended plan. This is a 5-figure investment.

Our goal is to keep our services accessible as well as pay our team their fair wages. For this reason, we offer payment plans to adapt and adjust to your needs.

WHO IS THE IDEAL CANDIDATE FOR THIS CIRCLE?

The entrepreneur who I can best support has a mission-based consulting or coaching business in high-end services, group coaching, courses, mastermind, speaking and writing. I have also been able to support and help product based companies grow in fashion design, jewelry design and planners.

They are looking to scale a business that is aligned to them and not some cookie cutter approach.

They focus on opportunities and not obstacles.

They are creators and not complainers.

They want to create genuine relationships online and in-person.

Receive 3 action-items and clarity if being part of the Inner Circle is a good fit.
