Who is Lisa Anne Rooney, could you please introduce yourself?
I started Purple Lotus to help both the living and the dead move forward. I soon realized that communicating with the other side to help with grief was only one small part of my gift, spirit was teaching me and leading me to help my clients with their life journey. With my realistic approach to spiritual development my goal is to empower my clients giving them the skills to improve and enhance their lives! I am a strong believer of the Power of I AM! What follows I AM will follow you!
What is your business and when did you start?
I guide my clients and students with spirits help to be the best version of themselves. Whether that is in personal growth, wellbeing, relationships or career and business. I teach meditation and spiritual development. I started doing session professionally and teaching in 2003.
What inspired you to start your business?
I have always had my abilities and I wanted to use them to help and guide others.
What were the challenges in the initial stages of your business and how did you overcome them?
For me it is always been about confidence. I struggle with promoting myself and really stepping into my role. I am amazing at helping others do it, but lacked it in myself. Over the years I just started to grow and learn how to do it better. I often take the long road to learn lessons, but the great thing about that is it gives me tools to help others. I also struggled a lot with imposter syndrome when I released my first book. I felt like a fraud at my book signings. It took releasing my second book and owning that I am not an imposter , I am an author!!
What motivates you about your business?
Helping others and seeing them succeed. I love helping people especially other women step out of their fear and become the best version of themselves!
What advice would you give to other entrepreneurs?
Do not under value yourself. Know you are worthy and what you offer is special, you deserve the success like anyone else!!
Interesting fact most people do not know about you?
I worked in Atlanta Georgia, as a film Production Coordinator working on a number of Food Network and PBS cooking shows.
The best business advice I ever received was…
You may have competition and people around you that do what you do, BUT no one is you – only you can do it the way you do it. Know that and know just how valuable that is and your are! If you undervalue yourself and your products you will be putting out to the world that you are not of value. You will either attract the wrong clients or no clients!
My definition of success is…
This is a big question. I define success as a balanced person. Someone who works hard, but knows when to stop and play and someone who has great relationships with friends, clients, colleagues and most importantly family! It’s not just about money (although money is awesome), but an abundant life in all areas of your life – that is true success!
If I could go back in time when I started my business, I would tell myself to…
Back in time, I would tell myself: Not be afraid. To come out of my comfort zone more, to own who I am and what I do! Stop over thinking and do more!
My personal tagline is…
Guiding others to be the best version of themselves, body, mind and spirit!
