The first move we learned was fighting stance.
My stance was okay. My son’s was pretty good. The youngest kid in the room had the best stance in the class. Looking at him out the corner of my eye made me sink in a little deeper into my thighs.
That simple move changed how I understood the art and science of growing a soul-powered business.
The fighting stance is the most important move in martial arts – it sets you up to respond to whatever your opponent throw at you. You can defend yourself. Attack. Move around.
Fighter’s stance gives you options.
This simple mindshift I’m going to share with you is like fighting stance for your business.
And it helped one of my clients triple her income in one month, just from her commitment to practice it often.
Here’s the unsolicited testimonial she sent to me:
“Within the first week after starting my work with Ije, I had two people approach me wanting to work together (without me approaching or advertising to either of them). Then a “side gig” client changed my role in our work together into the “dream job” I had just articulated with Ije a few days before. Things like that just kept happening as we continued to work together – it’s one of those things that sounds totally hokey but is totally true.
I didn’t really change any of my “outward” tactics – I only changed my inner approaches and started learning how to listen to my inner authority.
Suddenly, business is booming and I had several insanely lucky coincidences (including winning $2,500 and a custom-fitted dress within a week of each other – not to mention the easiest apartment search I’ve ever experienced).
I’m convinced the work I’ve done with Ije has been instrumental to suffusing not only my business, but my life, with a whole new sense of ease that I have NEVER experienced before.”

So here’s what I shared with Michelle in our first session: if you want to grow your business by using half the effort to get twice as much done, then you need to learn to trust yourself to make good business decisions.
In our first session, I helped Michelle shift from: I can’t trust myselt to make good business decisions to: I know what’s good and right for me and my business.
And I’m going to show you how to do the same.
Step 1: Know your “type”.
Look up your Human Design chart to learn what your “type” is.
Step 2: Understand how you’re designed to reach your goals.
If you’re a Manifestor, then know you’re designed TO DO. You reach your goals by taking action. As a Manifestors, you only get inspired after you take action. Then you just keep going until you get what you want.
If you’re any other type (including a Manifesting Generator), then you’re designed to reach your goals by only taking action when you feel inspired. Pushing yourself to do things when you don’t feel like it, only leads to frustration, bitterness and burnout.
Step 3: Practice
Ready to make a shift in your business? Then try out this experiment:
For the next 7 days, commit to following your Divine Design as often as you can. Be gentle with yourself, it takes practice and like fighting stance it can be uncomfortable when you’re first starting out.
If you’re designed TO DO, use this practice to shift yourself whenever you start to feel frustrated with your business.
- Make a list of how you imagine you’d feel if you had the business of your dreams right now. For me, I would feel free, loving and fierce.
- Then whenever you feel stuck this week, ask yourself: If I felt free what would I do right now? If I were my most loving self, how would I respond to this situation? What would someone fierce do right now?
- Then hit me up on my Fan Page for some free coaching and tell me how your week is going.
If you’re designed TO BE, then you use this practice to shift yourself when you start to feel frustrated with your business.
1. Stop doing whatever you’re doing.
2. Turn your attention to something else that you actually feel excited to do.
3. Then only take action in your business when you feel inspired to. (Tip: Inspiration feels like you’re opening your arms to hug someone. You’re expanding. Growing. Peaceful. Excited.)
4. Then hit me up on my Fan Page for some free coaching and tell me how your week is going.
