Name: Crystal-Marie Sealy
What is at the heart of your business?
Empowering solo service entrepreneurs to authentically earn more. Work less. Serve better clients, better. My heart’s cry (scream) is “You’re worth it!” In strategy consulting (pricing, schedule, client engagement, social media), speaking & workshops and set social media packages, I empower YOU to (re)establish the business you intended to start, that lets you live too! Welcome.
Why did you join a women’s coworking and wellness community?
For deeper feminine community. I’ve been a workaholic for much of my life, and I’m waking up to the other aspects of life, to reconnecting with friends and connecting with new, serendipitous interactions. Great if I get long-term clients too, but it’s primarily to connect in love, light and authenticity.
What do you wish to give and/or receive from this community?
I’m simply here to BE, for now. I’m open to seeing what that means.
What does thriving look like for you?
Being free to be myself in every aspect of life, and inspiring the same in others, as I prosper to overflow (into the lives of those others) in wealth, energy, health and love.
Shecosystem’s core values are: openness, community, collaboration, accessibility, sustainability, feminism, and wellness. Which of these resonates most with you and why?
Community, sustainability (in a broader sense) and wellness align most with where I am in my own journey, right now.
Tell us one way you integrate self-care into your working life:
I literally had to build it into my schedule. Empowering clients to do the same has served as a sort of accountability to myself, as well. Still a work-in-progress.
What’s your top piece of advice for other women entrepreneurs?
Slow down and do it your way. If you don’t know what “your way” is, take the time to find out. It’s truly the only way you’ll have a business that doesn’t drain you, but that energizes you. You’ll then attract the right clients and be okay saying ‘No’ to those less compatible. E.g. Introverts may take calls only on afternoons, Night owls may operate during different business hours.
“Do you” and you’ll be surprised to find there are hundreds of potential clients who need Just That.
Anything else we should know about you?
We’ll find out, but I suppose I can start with the fact that I migrated to Canada, solo, from the Caribbean at 23, and that the journey can be a very lonely one. I’ve done Jazz & Modern dance performances until the age of 28 – and well 31 and 34, having performed at Harbourfront Centre and Lula Lounge this year. I guess as we get to know each other, more will come to light.
