You will love this interview with Joan Sotkin, holistic business and money coach.
Joan’s enthusiasm and passion overflows in this captivating interview.
She shares her own story of how she began her lifelong relationship as an entrepreneur. For health reasons she was unable to have a real job so she learned about doing a mail order business.
Although this wasn’t a real business it gave her some of the foundation pieces to begin her first real business selling crystals in 1977.
She was in her 40s by then and had stepped fully into a meditation practice. She shares how she had a kundalini experience and followed what she heard in her meditation, about buying and selling stones. This was way before the New Age era began.
Her business became highly successful as she she used her inner ingenuity to put adds in magazines, create her own labels and packaging and creating products called “Joan’s Stones.”
She made a lot of money, but she knew nothing about money management or dealing with cash flow. As a result she lost her business and all her money as well. She took it personally and had to delve deep into herself to heal.
When her father died she realized how much grief and her unresolved childhood issues impacted her ability to deal with money. She says, “If you can’t get past the financial fears, you can’t find peace and hear your own inner voice.”
Joan Sotkin’s passion is working with forward-thinking individuals who are willing to implement new ways of being with themselves and their commercial ventures.
In the early 1980s, while attending 12-step programs including Debtors Anonymous and Codependents Anonymous, she began to understand the connection between emotions and the life stories we create for ourselves, including our finances.
Years of working to release her own repressed emotions helped deepen her understanding of how we act out family-of-origin issues through our businesses and finances.
Her business Prosperity Place is for those who want to experience “more” of life while creating satisfying and prosperous lives for themselves.
She runs a Prosperity Podcast and works with clients all over the world from her home in Santa Fe, New Mexico.
Her wisdom sharing: “People need to learn to be peaceful. The conflicts and violence in the world is all a reflection of our own fears. The two polarities are fear or inner peace. Which side do you want to be on?”
