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)
21 March – 28 March 2020
18 April – 25 April 2020

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.

Peace under a grape seed tree.

Reflecting after a remarkable December True Business Retreat in Antigua.

Creative spirits were set free into newly designed expansive True Business structures – True Business structures designed from our higher natures.

All four women signed up to return next year. WOW.

There are natural, heart-led collaborations emerging between all of us.

We are letting go of old collaboration stories that left us all frazzled, pissed off, burnt out from the lack of mutual reciprocity.

There is simplicity and strength, so much strength in each woman, in each business, in the group, in my business and in the True Business model.

I’m learning that as I connect to source inspiration, show up and serve, letting go of my expectations and any attempts to manipulate and control the outcome is way beyond my imagination.

That I love listening deeply in each moment to what is wanted and needed, choosing to go with the flow, and that the more I relax the better the retreat, the deeper the connection, the more powerful the experience.

All four women loved the delight of connecting to their hearts true purpose and the certainty of success, energy and desire they now feel around their True Business.

They loved too the simple True Business model with its 3 steps of connecting to source, receiving their unique true business blueprint and taking skilful action to bring it to life.

My relaxed flexible focused facilitation style and ability to create tangible end results from the heart, the insights that spring forth from that space for everyone.

That business can be feminine and a vehicle for the full joyful expression of their creativity, make a difference and create legacy – YES!

Antigua, the magic of the island and All the beautiful places we visited, the turquoise sea, butterflies, so many butterflies. The inspiration that pours into us from the Caribbean Sea.

The magical photo shoot with Yensa at Mermaid Gardens. I’d love to share so much more about this one day but for now want to hold the mystery for future women who will immerse in this beauty and liberation.

There is so much goodness from the week that my mind has a job to process it all to understand all the different levels of connection, benefit and impact.

And I noticed my fear rising that success in my business will lead to being publicly wronged, shamed, humiliated, that it’s not safe to win, and that Im ready to let this old limiting story go.

I fell in love even more with my True Business unfolding and with the True Business Model born of inspiration from the turquoise Caribbean Sea, a Business model that has the potential to serve thousands of people to create the businesses they were born to build, to create a new way of doing business that creates wellness and fulfilment and prosperity.

It’s going to be a gift working with these four powerful, smart women with a blend of true purposes that couldn’t be any more perfect to bring our businesses to life over the next five years.

Business doesn’t have to be blood sweat and tears, hard work and burn out. It can be a blend of beauty, truth, relaxation, creativity and joy. It can be so natural to you that it doesn’t feel like work.

Join me for the 16-23 March 2019 Antigua Retreat.Katbyles.com/antigua for more info.

Wellness. Inspiration. Fulfilment.

Set up an Antigua Exploration Session if you’d like to speak, tune into your end result and make your decision.

See you in the turquoise.

Xx

—–

In Western civilisation we aren’t brought up to fulfil our true nature and purpose. Traditional business focuses on making money. Education was set up to serve business; parents encourage kids to get good qualifications to get a good job and earn enough money to provide for their family.

In doing so we’re encouraged to live lives that are completely out of alignment with our true nature and purpose. Before you know it you’ve spent 20 years in marketing for Microsoft when your talent is as an artist but you were fed the false belief that artists don’t make money.

However, this is changing. Slowly.

Many people are experiencing a deep calling; a call to experience a life of greater substance and meaning, a call to fulfil their true purpose and potential. People are turning to meditation and yoga, reconnecting with nature, learning to listen to and create from their own wealth of inner wisdom and a new way of being in business is opening.

So I very much look forward to exploring True Business with you, the groundbreaking way of you being in business with heart for deep fulfilment, wellness, legacy and prosperity.

This month I’d love to draw your attention to the beautiful new book just out – ‘Yoga and the Dark Night of the Soul, The Soul’s journey to Sacred Love’ by Simon Haas. This is one of those magical books that found me just when I needed it, every chapter seemed to be just right for the moment I discovered it. Don’t you love it when a book finds you like that?

Yoga and the Dark Night of the Soul offers a powerful reframe of depression. Whilst modern day civilisation is fearful and ashamed of depression, hiding and medicating it, Ancient India saw darkness as a right of passage, a calling to sacred love, a gift. This book is about that right of passage, about the journey from fear and confusion to sacred love, unveiling the four stages to that journey.

The book is full of relatable, inspiring stories from Simon’s life and the people around him as well as accessible illustrations from the Bhagavad Gita. While yoga has to some degree become part of the feel good industry and “oooh look at my amazing handstand on Instagram” this book brings us the true purpose of yoga with depth and authenticity, to follow your purpose, engage your heart in yoga practice and live a life of love and compassion. It is quite literally a breath of fresh air.

Simon spent his childhood studying Sanskrit and the sacred writings of India and his teenage years living with monks the temples and monasteries of India. This is so far away from my own childhood growing up on a housing estate in Iver Heath, Bucks that it seems other worldly. He also apprenticed with an elderly master practitioner in the Bhakti tradition for 16 years. After returning to the UK to study Law at Cambridge University he now lives in Costa Rica practicing corporate law and is dedicated to making the ancient wisdom of India accessible to modern day.  He is also the author of The Book of Dharma, Making enlightened choices.

Yoga and the Dark Night of the Soul is a beautiful book, one to keep and read over and over, as well as to flick open and take in the particular message for you on that page.  For those of us dedicated to listening to and following our heart’s it is a classic, a must have. You can buy it from Amazon: https://www.amazon.co.uk/dp/0957518528

Antigua just got even more wonderful and expansive.

This year we are bringing business teams to the island to immerse in nature, connect with pure source inspiration and unlock all that hidden wisdom and creative power and potential of the hearts of the team to pour into the business.

I’m collaborating with leaders in their fields of marketing, leadership and philanthropy to co-host retreats focused on…

Leading with Heart for Corporates
Marketing with Heart for SME’s
High Harmony Teams for Global Change Makers

And I’m open to future collaborations too!

The combination of the immersion in nature and connection to the heart is a powerful tool for transformation and creativity. This will only be enhanced in a team benefiting from the synergy and synchronicity that comes in a high harmony team focused on the higher purpose and vision.

During the retreats for women founders, entrepreneurs, pioneers, change-makers, teachers, healers, artists and writers with their own businesses as they have listened to the wisdom of their hearts and stepped into greater harmony with their true nature and purpose and the flow of life, they have…

++ Aligned their business with their true nature and purpose
++ Designed innovative products & programmes with high value and impact
++ Quadrupled their business income doing far less
++ Become confident, creative, imaginative industry leaders
++ Opened international offices
++ Experience deep fulfilment, wellness, joy and happiness
++ Lost kilos, committed to give up alcohol, recovered from burn out
++ Got married!

There will be regular video series focused on a specific topic. ‘Your True Purpose is Your business’ is first up with 5 videos to connect to your true purpose and make it your business.

See you there!

Much love,

What they say

“The greatest gift from True Business has been simplicity. It has allowed my offerings to emerge and they are all things I never thought I’d be able to do as work. Photography and taking people into Nature feel so obvious as they are part of me. The business I needed to bring to the world has now been allowed to emerge.”

Edward Pike, Spiritual Mentor, Photographer & Writer

“My PR plan became the creative, energetic heart of my project. What emerged was surprising, energising, and far larger than I expected. This has given me the courage to do effortlessly what I previously believed would be challenging. I cannot recommend Kat more highly. She is world-class.”

Simon Haas, author, The Book of Dharma

“Kat is a powerful, imaginative and intuitive leader with a great capacity to see a vision and make it happen. What sets Kat apart is her heart. She works with passion and exudes creative energy and enthusiasm that is both inspiring and contagious.”

Mel Young, president, Homeless World Cup

When I aligned with my heart new financial partnerships came knocking at my door, my website traffic went up by 50% and my turnover up by 30%. Being in the Financial Times is the pinnacle for me as a personal finance writer.

Lynn Beattie, Mrs MummyPenny

By following the wisdom of her heart, Step created her True Business: “Your invitation to sit with the new vision of working with men during PR with Heart, Kat, opened up and clarified the direction for my work.”

Steph Magenta, Breathwork Facilitator and Teacher
