That’s What She Said!
“After working with Lidys, my whole attitude changed…”
When I came to work with Lidys, I felt strongly that I needed more money and a personality adjustment, which ended up not being true at all. I had previously tried to market myself as a “fluffy bunny doula” like all the other popular businesses in the area, which completely disregarded my own personality and how I was actually hoping to run my business. Working with Lidys, I really enjoyed the personal connection and her lack of judgement. Lidys was understanding and compassionate without being condescending. I am also deeply appreciative of the spirituality and holistic-ness she brought to our discussions. I have found it very difficult to balance my own spirituality and ideals with running a business; it’s inspiring to see how they can meld together. After working with Lidys, my whole attitude changed; I was better able to define who I was and how I could be of use to potential clients. I have a more clearly defined target market now, and a better idea of what those clients are looking for in a business. If nothing else, that confidence boost was entirely worth everything. I’ve been able to put a lot of the things we discussed into practice (and continue to use them as I develop more courses and services), and I’m working hard to develop a great little client base. I’m eternally grateful for the time Lidys took to move through this process with me. I believe that she has a gift and seeing how she’s growing her passion is incredibly inspiring!Johanna Veenendaal
“I became a confident artist in my own right.”
When I first came to Lidys, I didn’t know whether what I was doing was “correct” – self confidence was lacking. I wanted to learn techniques and gain gain more confidence in my work. Self confidence is what I needed to achieve my goal. I had tried hiding my work from the public because I was ashamed it would make me the laughing stock even though I was excited about what I was doing. I wanted to stop hiding my work and keep learning and growing as an artist. During my time working with Lidys, I enjoyed her constructive criticism and inviting energy. She did everything for me I needed, she knew when to push me even when I myself did not know – nothing was missing, Lidys was a mentor and a friend and for that I am truly thankful. After my work with Lidys, I became a confident artist in my own right, fighting the fight and willing to learn all that I need to get my work done.Zvafadza (Fadzie) Soko-Simango
