Episode 433: From Burnout to Bliss: How She Reinvigorated Her Passion After 17 Years with Rickson Sharkey
Today’s episode is super value-packed and about a really common theme this year – overcoming burnout.
I chat with Rickson Sharkey, an incredibly talented jewelry designer with a fascinating and whimsical niche. She shares about how she went from stuck in burnout to flourishing and thriving more than ever – financially, mentally, and personally. Her tips about getting back into a space of bliss and alignment are absolute gold.
This seasoned business owner of over 17 years received the tools and support from one of our boot camps to propel her past a really difficult time and push her to step out of her own way.
Rickson opens up about her journey to success and why she feels like she built her six figure business the hard way (and how not to). She shares what wished she focused on more from the start and how she reignited her spark.
Join us as we dive into her beautiful journey about what she did to revive her love for her business, get her first 5-figure sale, and so much more!
She Needed to Find What Matters Most
Rickson blows me away with her rawness and her vulnerability. She opens up in this down-to-earth talk about how she was just going through the motions and had lost the joy and the connection to her business.
Her struggle is something that so many go through – wanting to scale, but not having everything in place, including the mindset, to do so. She moved past feeling crushed by her business and struggling to grow by putting systems in place, grounding, and reconnecting.
She Needed to Release What Held Her Back
Rickson discovered that becoming wildly successful and joyful didn’t just depend on what she needed to incorporate into her business, but also on what she needed to let go of.
One of our boot camps opened her eyes to what limiting beliefs she needed to release before she could gain true traction. She became deeply aware of how her struggles mirror so many other jewelry designers' struggles – and perfectionism is a top contender. Rickson, like countless others who actually surpass their goals, needed to get the beliefs that were holding her back out of the way.
She Discovered Where the Magic Lies
Rickson says that she found where the magic lies when one of our programs encouraged her to be vulnerable with volume. She shares one of the most profound truths that get us unstuck – once you face things holding you back, such as the real root of your fear, they suddenly become not so scary.
When she put in the work to discover the root of her fears, she took one of the hardest steps that many never do. By looking inside and becoming aware of the real reason she was letting her fears sabotage her success, she was able to finally soar to new heights and truly twinkle.
