Many people working in salaried employment every day feel dissatisfied with their rate of pay; but as we get older and our lives get busier, the prospect of changing jobs or retraining seems less and less appealing. Margie Hulse, a Right Riches for You facilitator for Access Consciousness says many people don’t look at all the options that are right in front of them – options which could increase their income without requiring them to quit their current position. It seems more commonplace that at the top of New Year’s resolutions lists among Americans – find a new job. Margie Hulse believes there are other ways to increase income, without having to quit your current position.
We had a chance to interview Margie and asked about her story, how she started her business and the future of Right Riches for You.
Why did you start your business?
I have always been interested in personal development and helping people. I started this particular business to help and empower people to create revenue streams and build wealth using the tools of Access Consciousness and my experience of building businesses.
How did you come up with your business name?
Our business name of Mahara Unlimited came from a local word meaning consciousness and we wanted no limitations.
Tell us about your products and services. How do you help clients?
I offer a range of services based on the tools of Access Consciousness as well as drawing from my wealth of experience in business and wealth creation. I endeavor to empower people to change the points of view which are stopping them from creating wealth and income streams. I offer private 1:1 sessions in which individual issues are discussed and solutions created. I also teach a several Right Riches classes which show people what is required to create wealth and money. Work the System allows you to look at what systems apply to your financial reality and how you can use them to your advantage. Financial awareness helps you to rediscover what you know and explor new tools to create thefoundation off which you can create anything financially. I also teach a class with my daughter, Rebecca Hulse, another Right Riches facilitor on “The Next generation of Wealth”where we talk about how to create a future not only for you but for your family too.
What makes you unique? What is your unique selling proposition (USP)?
The tools of Access Consciousness are very different to mainstream business ideas. Constantly asking questions, and following what you know, lead to very different outcomes for clients.Each individual client is so very different and the results are as individual as they are.
Where do you see your business in the next 3-5 years?
In next 3-5 years I see more people become aware of the tools of Access Consciousness become so much more mainstream, particularly in relation to creating wealth. Not only will I be teaching others how to use these tools, there will be many others around the world doing the same thing.
Any advice you would give to entrepreneurs and business owners?
- Be prepared to do whatever it takes to succeed
When you are starting your own business you need to be willing to do whatever it takes to make it successful. I have had many successful businesses and some not so successful ones too. The difference between the two was my willingness to learn new things, put my self at the edge of my comfort zone, go beyond and do what it took to make the business work. Setting up a new venture takes time and it may seem overwhelming too. To eliminate the overwhelm ask yourself “Where do I need to put my attention today?’. This will allow you to focus on what is a priority and not get bogged down in the non-profitable tasks.
- Use your skills and interests
When you are establishing what you think might be a great business, ask yourself “What are my particular skills and interests?” Everyone has an area of expertise and interest they find easy. These are all clues to what type of business could be fun for you – so start with something you know and love, and develop it from there. Ask yourself “what would be enjoyable for me to create?” – it doesn’t seem like work. Your aim should be to make money and enjoy doing it.
- Good support network
It is important for a new business to have a good support network in order to continue past the first two years. It is very helpful to have people around you who have your back and will encourage you to keep moving forward. A networking group who get together on a weekly basis to support each other in creating their businesses is a great way to market yourself and create a support network of like minded people. Another key person in your team is your accountant. They will be able to help you set up financial systems so you can see at a glance where your business is. It is no use at the end of the year finding out that you your overspending hugely in a particular area. Keep a close eye on your financials. You are in business to make money not just to keep you occupied.
What is your favorite business quote and why?
“There is always a way –no matter how difficult things seem, there is always a solution.”
Anything else additional you want to tell our readers?
No matter what sort of business you are in, unless you are enjoying it, making money from it will seem like a lot of work. Ask yourself “What would I really like to do or create that would be enjoyable for me?” That way when you are “working” it doesn’t seem like it as you are enjoying yourself. Life is too short not to enjoy what you are doing and being in business and making money can be lots of fun.
