Today our expert guest is Rebecca Hulse, an author, speaker, and creative rebel at heart. She’s shown up in places like Thrive Global, Women’s Weekly, and Small Business Daily. She’s a business coach on a mission to help creatives be successful without being exceedingly serious and aiding entrepreneurs in bringing their ideas to life by giving them the tools that fit their purpose.
As someone who revels in shaking up the realities and limiting paradigms of her clients, Rebecca thrives in situations where the impossible transitions to possible. A former recording artist and one of the voices for millennials, she is the personification of her motto, “Impossible is temporary.”
Rebecca’s parents were personal development junkies, which gave her a strong foundation to stand on – but at the end of the day, she had to be the one to take action for her life. From early on, she was sure that she wanted to be a dancer, but dancers don’t make much money. When her path to dancing professionally became a little too easy, she decided to start a business on the side.
Rebecca wrote “Rebellious Rituals” for the former version of herself – for “the yogi who drinks wine.” When she was 18, working on her dance career and business at the same time, she realized that the tools she had weren’t working for her. She was high-strung and over-stressed and meditation just wasn’t working for her. She looked for more tools and eventually uncovered the Access Consciousness movement – and the concepts stuck. She started creating her own processes and rituals based on everything she could find that worked, and it all went into her book.
Being an introverted businessperson can be difficult. The assumption is that, if you’re an entrepreneur, you’re an out there, people person. But that’s not always the case. It’s OK to want to get away from people sometimes. That’s one of the first acts of rebellion: acknowledging your own thoughts and feelings and not pushing them away and telling yourself that they’re wrong.
However you choose to rebel, Rebecca wants you to recognize that it’s alright to do so. We are all unique, and our best chance at success is leaning into that energy to make it what we will. The strongest version of you is the one that’s the most “you.”
