Please stop with this BS that magic is found outside of your Comfort Zone.

This is magic for adrenaline junkies.
I played along with it for years and years. 
For a longtime comfort was outside my comfort zone!

And yet I have found deep magic in connection with the divine, in peacefulness, in natural beauty, in the wilds of nature, floating in the Caribbean Sea looking up at the sun and the moon, the taste of a sweet mango straight from the tree, in skinny dipping with Trev under the full moon and shooting stars, in laughing with my niece and nephew, seeing kids having fun playing sport.

None of these gloriously magical moments are outside my comfort zone.

I used to be an outside your comfort zone junkie. It is fun to have your heart pounding at the mix of excitement and fear as you step over a threshold and do something new or something that challenges you. I used to do this so much that I was never in my comfort zone.

To intimate this is the place magic happens is BS.

Magic is natural beauty, is peacefulness, is wellness, is being free, is being in this one present moment.

Where’s your magic?

Create your True Business with Heart

When I was working in traditional business as the global communications director for the Homeless World Cup, I wasn’t aware that I was disconnected from universal energy, source, our life force, nature. 

It was only when facing burn out, I turned to listen to the wisdom of my heart and it guided me to a month in Antigua. Here I walked barefoot on white sand, floated in the turquoise Caribbean Sea and ate mangoes from the tree. The life force of the island brought me back to life. Only then did I realise. 

Now it’s all about creating with this creative universal energy. Letting go of trying to work it out, get it relevant, right, perfect or contain and control it. This leads me back into anxiety, overwhelm, scattered. Instead it’s all about the dance. Listening, receiving, allowing, being with curiosity and wonder, letting go of any expectations. 

Whilst traditional business is cut off from our life force, nature, from this universal energy it will continue to hurt us and our planet. We need a new business model where we create with this universal energy. It leads us from stress, exhaustion, fears of survival, greed, devastation and destruction into regeneration, harmony, wellness, vitality, peacefulness, freedom, expansion and a new world of possibility. This is True Business. 

I’d love to invite you further into the dance with this universal energy in business, to explore and embrace the wisdom and creativity of your heart with a Live Webinar, Podcast, Online Course and Antigua Retreat coming up. Take your pick and please do share with your friends too.

Have you ever wanted to do a naked photoshoot in natural beauty?

Women coming on the True Business Antigua Retreat are gifted the beautiful invitation of a photoshoot with talented local photographer Yensa Werth​ as part of her self love series.

In a hidden place in nature, with a small group of women from the True Business Antigua Retreat, you are invited to embrace your true feminine essence, to experience being your whole and complete True Self and for it to be captured on film.

It is vulnerable, brave and beautiful.
It is transformative.

When you relax into your true feminine nature there is a powerful radiance, a beauty. There is also a creative liberation, a freeing of your spirit and accompanying energy that you can pour into your True Business. You experience the courage and power to lead from your True Self. The group relationship deepens too. And you end up with a stunning collection of photographs to take home with you.

Here’s my favourite photograph from my photoshoot with Yensa to trial and create the experience for the women coming on the True Business Antigua Retreat.

I’m terrified of the Atlantic Ocean. Its intensity is intimidating and overwhelming to me. This is how I can experience masculine power in business and within me – aggressive, destructive, running roughshod over everyone and everything without a care. In the absence of the feminine nurturing essence, in the absence of the wisdom of the heart, this masculine approach in business led me to burnout, anxiety and depression.

Here in this moment I went beyond this fear of masculine power into the experience of embracing both energies equally within me. A harmony, balance, union that created a calm, peaceful, soft power within me. It also burst forth a whole lot of creative inspiration.

I’m curious, what do you see?

We returned a few months later with the True Business Antigua Retreat women and recreated this photograph with five of us. This time the waves splashing over us from the ocean and it was wild and exhilarating.

Absolutely love the magic created in partnership with Yensa.

If you’d love to join the next True Business Antigua Retreat here are the dates:
30 November – 7 December 2019 (2 places)
7 December – 14 December 2019 (Sold Out)

I’d love to invite you to Antigua.

To take the last place on the March True Business Retreat from 16-23 March 2019.

A special time to dive into the sunshine energy and turquoise Caribbean Sea to explore and create the next chapter of your business. To pour pure source inspiration into you and your business.

When you do you have an energy that can sustain you and carry your forwards; an energy that is attractive and opens up opportunities naturally in alignment with your true nature and purpose. This is the pathway of your heart – creativity, love, joy, vitality, fun and freedom, receiving rather than all that blood sweat and tears, leaning in, pushing and struggling we’ve been told business is.

Through the week we connect to your true purpose, your 3 prosperity pillars, your audience, the layers of your heart’s offering to serve your audience, and the financial structure to create confidently. You leave with a solid True business structure and plan aligned with your true purpose, your pathway forwards and a 5 year map that will bring wellness, fulfilment, prosperity and legacy.

We have our creative sessions in the mornings, giving you the afternoons to enjoy the beach, the pool, the sunshine and assimilate all the goodness before a sunset debrief.

There’s yoga, swimming, paddle boarding, beach combing and a very special photo shoot with Yensa Werth, a talented local photographer, designed to unleash your creative spirit, to set it loose to lead in your business. You will love it.

It’s a holiday with lovely women too. We visit lots of beautiful places on the Island, including some favourite beaches, a drive through the rainforest, Sheer Rocks, which was voted one of the best restaurants in the Caribbean, English Harbour and Nelsons Dockyard. On your day off your have the option to have a massage, Reiki, go on a boat tour or spend the day reading your book or writing at the beach, whatever you’d like.

It’s £2950 and includes 7 nights luxury accommodation in your own double bedroom with en suite bathroom, breakfast, all transport on the Island including to and from the airport, welcome dinner, Sheer Rocks celebration lunch, Yoga, Paddle boarding, photoshoot and all the creative time with me to design your True Business structure. Amazing amazing value.

Have a look at www.katbyles.com/antigua and give me a shout with any questions. If it is seriously calling you message me and we can do an decision making session together – kat@katbyles.com

Please do feel free to pass this invitation along to any women who come to mind that would love to pour all this goodness in to themselves and their business too.

Until then. See you in the turquoise!

Much love,
Kat x

What will you create in your business if you create from source?

And what will we create in business on a global scale if we all create business from source?

By source inspiration I mean from, and in harmony with, the energy of life itself.

Here in Antigua you can feel the life force of nature strongly all around you. In the waves of the crystal clear turquoise sea; in a cloud burst on the corrugated iron roof; in the lush green plant life that growth spurts after the rains bring the Island back to life.

Just like a plant knows to turn towards the sun, to send it’s roots towards the water to get what it needs to be healthy and to grow, so do we, when we are in harmony with this natural intelligence, with the energy of life.

And if we allow the energy of life to create through us in business, where will it take us?

I’ve experienced a return to wellness, to vitality, energy and peacefulness. Wholeness, fulfilment, meaning and joy, an alignment with my true nature and purpose, a deep knowing that I’m in the right place at the right time. There is harmony, flow and connection where there once was struggle, burn out and depression.

It has transformed my entire life. It moved me from Bath to Antigua, from burn out as a global communications director working with the biggest names in sport to working with women to create their True Business. From traditional business, albeit with a purpose to the inspired, groundbreaking True Business Model serving over 200 entrepreneurs, teachers, change makers, healers, creatives, writers and artists in 14 countries to connect to source inspiration to discover their unique True Business blueprint. And this is just the beginning.

We know only too well where business without connection to source, without the energy of life, without the creative spirit, without heart takes us. The separation from the energy of life takes us into burnout, stress, illness, anxiety and depression. Business decisions are taken in concrete, glass buildings, in airless boardrooms or pods. We buy and sell the earths resources in concrete rooms on screens on machines. Decisions in the pursuit of profit pollute our bodies, our oceans and our seas and environments are destroyed. If the energy of life is not present in our economic system it’s completely logical that we head towards extinction.

I’m not interested in this way of doing business, nor this end result.

For me the new frontier that is exciting, hopeful and revelatory is creating your business from source, co-creating your business in harmony with the natural energy of life. With your creative spirit unleashed in business we and our earth environment are taken towards wellness, fulfilment, prosperity and legacy.

That’s the business frontier that I want to explore.

You can access source by being in nature. By going into the sea and feeling the freedom and expansion that it brings. Pour that freedom, expansion, energy and life into your business. By walking in the woods and breathing in smell of the earth, the inspiration from autumn leaves tumbling through the fresh air. Pour that fresh air and beauty into your business.

You can access source by listening to your heart. In the stillness beyond your thoughts and feelings you can listen deeply to the wisdom and creative energy of your own sacred heart. Here you are connected to what life wants to create through you now. You can open up to a whole new world of business within your heart. A business that offers a deep expression of who you are and what you are called to create, contribute in service to the evolution of life and humankind, your True Business.

Are you excited to explore this way of being in business that allows life to thrive?

If yes, I’d love to hear from you.

If you aren’t. If you are reading this thinking what is she even on about? Go stand under the trees and breath in the freshness of the earth. Ask the natural energy of life to direct you by listening to your heart, to your deep knowing, to your intuition. And soon enough you will find yourself opening your heart to a whole new world of your True Business, a business so natural to you it doesn’t feel like work.

Come and Explore.
Unleash your creative spirit on the business you were born to build at the True Business Antigua Retreat.
There’s one place left for 16-23 March 2019 – is it yours?
Pour the expansive new energy, growth and momentum into your True Business, from nature, from your heart.
