We are no longer using the 10to8 scheduling service

I love the idea of convenience for my clients and visitors – one place where everyone can see our list of services with full descriptions, pricing, availability, and a scheduling feature all in one place.

I began using the 10to8 online scheduling service years ago, but last month I decided to cancel the service. Why?

Well for one, people emailed me anyway. Which I loved! Emails give me every opportunity to connect with clients and potential connections more in-depth. What did I learn? Our people like the personal connection. Easy access, generalization, and disjointed disconnectedness isn’t attractive for our client type. People have questions before they want to schedule (i.e. commit).

Two, more than too many times everyone emailed me anyway saying the 10to8 system wasn’t giving them what they were looking for. Three, I heard myself telling people “the 10to8 system uses parameters that doesn’t account for the human factor.” What does this mean? While a digital calendar is programmable to outline and hold to the things I wish to assign for convenience, this isn’t really what we want. The human factor is not there.

I am a solopreneur, and my workday is all about creation and flow. I am not someone who rents space in one location and offers only a few things. I drive to my clients. I work out of multiple studios. I accept walk-ins. I am available virtually. I offer private and group sessions, and I host multiple events and teach classes. Each day is a mixed bag of meetings and conversations and opportunities, online and in-person. While I did my best to make things very clear and outlined for visitors to my scheduler, it never seemed to provide the ease and grace that neither my client or I needed. I will venture to guess about 98% of booking requests were adjusted, and that was after I contacted them to find out exactly what they were looking for. What did I learn? I thought what I made available in the system was clear and articulate for convenience, but after a brief consultation 90% of the inquirees switched what service they thought they wanted, or were looking for. Also, I was continuously explaining what my schedule actually looked like, and where I was, when.

I love opportunity. I have no qualms about students learning or practicing. I also love to support the underdog, or in this case a start-up. 10to8 was new when I first joined them, and it was a pretty basic package. As they grew and made changes, I was happy to grow with them, even though I was already experiencing challenges. From start to finish with 10to8 never did the system ask for clients to provide more than a phone number or email. The minimum required input was so the system could send reminders for me, which I liked. But most people said because the reminders were auto generated by a bot, they went to spam and so were missed and/or ignored because they didn’t know what it was. A form for plugging in an adress was there, but not provided to the client. If I was hired for an in-home visit, I had to first contact the client to obtain their address, then enter the data myself. I learned a lot people didn’t want a home visit anyway – they were trying to register for a class I provided at that time and location! There was a lot of extra work for me and I became an office asssistant. I was on the sytem more than any client ever was. Then came the point about 2 years ago when the service outgrew me – I was no longer able to access support from the company, but forced to try suggested troubleshoot techniques. Then support came in the form of a facebook group led by other users. Though I emailed requests and asked questions to the company, they weren’t resolved because my eclectic need was not understood by an IT tech. As a solopreneur this isn’t what I need. Updates began happening more frequently and changes to using the system were quick and not so solopreneur friendly. With every update on their end, I had more work to do in the back end of the site. Now I felt as though more time and effort was being wasted – by me AND visitors, and I really really tried to hang in there. Then they took more away, disproportionating what I got versus what I paid for. The cost per month to use the service was definitely beyond what I was getting from them, and my needs were still not being met. I deleted my account with them.

Why did I stay with the service as long as I did? Because of fear. I was afraid you wouldn’t know how to find me. Which is silly, because you can find me, and in so many places – Facebook. My website. Multiple online platforms (see my website for the list). I had cut + pasted that 10to8 link everywhere!! For years! It’s on my business cards, it’s in all of my books bios, in media where I collaborate with other experts. And every single time someone expressed interest in working with me I directed them there. I told everyone to send referrals there. Un-doing it all definitely creates more work. Am I frustrated? – Yes. But the decision to cancel is more in alignment with my needs (and yours!), and the outcome, than the decision not to.

Who knows, maybe one day I’ll research and find something I like that works. But for now I am happy to save the money per month I had been spending on an idea I hoped would work, but didn’t. What does this mean for you? You get my undivided attention! I’m returning back to the basics, the personal and preferred way to provide for you. If you are interested in what Ken and I do, and how we can help you – email us at LiKeEnergyHealing@gmail.com. The first thing I’ll do is ask you when you’re available to chat, and my second question for you will be do you prefer to meet by telephone or on Zoom? We’ll go from there šŸ™‚

Are you ready?

I “came out of the closet” as a healer only recently – as I grew comfortable referring to myself as a Quantum Healer.

As you could probably imagine – me, an ordinary and common girl living in a big city, surrounded by adopted (stubborn) values and opinions of all kinds, with no big world adventures under her belt, and no real connection to what I thought at the time was something that only “special” people did. All I was thinking at the time was I wanted somethng bigger for myself.

Something kept turning me. When I would begin to walk down the path I was accustomed to, something always caught my attention and made me curious, made me want to explore a different path with different views. And I did that inner work, and I became detective, and I wanted to understand what was really driving me. Eventually I relaxed into trusting. I even remember saying out loud I have no idea why i am doing this, it’s like I’m crazy. But I went for it. Now, it feels more than right, and it feels good to be able to support myself in what I believe I have been called to be and do.

For everything there is a process and only those who have decided to make such a big and life changing move understand that this is so much more than changing offices, job titles, or companies – this is about listening to that call. Deciding to say no to all the distractions, all the fears (even the good kind of fears, like is this really a smart move? How will I pay my bills?), and all of the comforts we are so nestled in definitely speaks to who we are and what we are capable of. And in order to pull all that off you need bravery in your pocket.

We are all on a mission – to be happy, to feel love, and to live the life of our dreams. Deciding to stop listening to everyone, to stop accomodating, to postpone no more, and to begin to do from what feels right (not from what’s right, or smart by other peoples standards), and to start exploring the possiblities and moving forward towards a new reality – is a huge deal! You have to allow yourself to become, to embrace, really it’s allowing vulnerability – in the most vulnerable of ways. You have to have new and consistent dialogues with yourself, checking in, and really feel into what’s right. Becasue chances are what you’re exploring – doesn’t have a compass or a roadmap. Chances are no one’s been there before. You have only yourself to rely on. And the best way to keep your footing while on the journey – is to find the support you absolutely need.

It’s great if a loved one or best friend knows how to support you unconditionally, always able to pick you up when you feel you chose an impossible mission – but the reality is we need to be able to find what we need in our own selves – in our own hearts and brains, in our own guts and emotions. It can often feel dark in there – but we have to tap into that drive that will bring us into our light.

Guidance on tapping into your own authentic desires, releasing the conditioning habits and patterns that no longer align with our desires, and truly healing ourselves from everything that has brought us to this point so that we can move forward easily and comfortably is all a necessary part of the process. And you absolutely can do this yourself – but there will always be moments when you will have questions, and in need of a fresh perspective. Aligning yourself Mind Body and Spirit is the order you’re looking at.

TREĀ® Experience series beginning in 2020

So many people are looking for ways to heal themselves, to overcome, and move past the things in their lives that bring them down. People are ready for change. People are ready for better. And everyone likes feeling healthy.

I invite you to think back to your first day of school, your first job interview, that big fight with a loved one, being cut off in traffic. Remember the last time you had a really big day, the kind that requires celebrating, like your wedding day.

Why? Because any event or experience (good, or not so good) that causes you to react on a psycho-emotional level has a direct and immediate affect at a neuro-physiolocal level for short or extended periods of time. Let me explain …

These intense and highly emotional events and experiences created charged energy – that is now stored in your body.

Why do we want to care about and acknowledge our charged moments?

Because the continued behavior of failing to acknowledge their effects risks creating stress related diseases, especially when suppressing the not so good ones. I tell my students all the time how simple things – even just stubbing your toe – is traumatic. But I encourage everyone to come up with their own definitions for 1)stress, 2)tension, and 3)trauma.

I am so passionate about helping people be experts for their own health and wellness plan that I created a 4 week series to deepen their healing experience. TREĀ® (Tension and Trauma Releasing Exercises) is a series of exercises that assist the body in releasing deep muscular patterns of stress, tension and trauma (physical and emotional). Created by Dr. David Berceli TREĀ® safely activates your natural reflexive mechanism by way of neurophysiological rebalancing. And the most commonly reported benefits are decreased anxiety, the release of chronic tension, the discharge of emotional and physical trauma, improved sleep, mood and digestion, decreased aches and pains, improved flexibility, and the decrease in symptoms for sciatica, fibromyalgia, and other chronic conditions.
