Whos Jan and Why Is She Here?
  • As the Chair of the Ipsalu Teachers Committee
    and Im here to support you with resources to
    help you succeed as an Ipsalu Teacher
  • I know the pain of what it is to LOVE what you
    are trained to do and to STRUGGLE to build a
    community, enroll participants in courses, and
    make a living doing it. Im here to tell you
  • 1) Learning Your Art and 2) Learning the Business
    of Your Art are two separate and distinct things.
    Im here to help you learn about the latter.

Filling Your Workshops with EaseWhy is This
  • You were born with unique gifts to share with the
  • The Universe wants you to give them fully without
    fear, without holding back
  • Serve and share your gifts generously
  • One of the greatest fulfillments is to share your
    gifts and have them received
  • You can do this in ways that energize and sustain
    you rather than deplete you
  • Employing simple, heart-based business strategies
    will help nourish you and your business

Most High-Tech, Common Methods to Fill Classes
  • The O.M. Method
  • H.A.P. (Hope and Pray)

Business as a Spiritual Practice
  • Your business vision drives you to reconcile who
    you are now with who you can be.In order to play
    at the (community, national, global) level, who
    would I have to become? Bold, daring,
    unconditionally self-loving, crystal clear,
    confident, committed, humorous, courageous, etc.
  • Spirituality and profitability mutually
  • Its your duty to get wealthy. Your playing
    small doesnt serve the world. The more people
    you serve and the more value you provide, the
    greater your income. Its a lot easier to pull
    people up that to push people up (law of physics)
  • Your job is to uplift What you provide is a
    gift, a valuable resource for someone to solve
    the pressing problems in their life or to help
    them move beyond their limits and manifest their
    hearts desire. You can become masterful at
    having selling conversations with people that
    support them, inspire them, and compel them to
    take the next steps with you (i.e.
    Heart-Selling). Whether or not people say Yes
    to your services, your primary intention is to
    leave people in a better place than when you
    found them.

Absolutely mind-blowing! We reached a whole new

    having to get to some finish line, to rush toward
  • After working with Jan, sex was the best it had
    ever been! The results were immediate. All of our
    senses are heightened when we make love and we
    are right there in the moment. Nothing hurried.
    There is a lot of passion now and a very deep and
    intimate connection in our lovemaking. It feels
    like we are not just making love with our bodies,
    but with our souls.

Amy and Daniel Goggiano Carson City, NV
Example Testimonial
  • Before we worked with Jan I enjoyed a physical
    connection with my husband during lovemaking but
    not a spiritual one. Sometimes, my eyes would
    wander towards other men wondering if they could
    fulfill me in the way I desired.
  • After we worked with Jan, I feel the spiritual
    connection between us. John looks at me in a
    totally different way. He even says he feels more
    in love with me than on the day we got married!
