CANCER (June 21-July 22)

Soup is your metaphor for the week, Cancerian.  Symbolically speaking, it’s the key to your personal power and a model for the approach you should take in everything you do. On the most basic level, you might want to eat some soup every day.  That will make potent suggestions to your subconscious mind about how to mix lots of ingredients together so that their value and beauty as a totality are more than the sum of their parts. Not just in the kitchen, but in every area of your life, blend little miscellaneous things into one big interesting thing. 

You might think it flaky for a business coach to start a post with her kooky horoscope.  Not so in my books.  Metaphors like this are rich and are not to be overlooked.

In my case, the biggest soup I have been cooking lately is Coach Buffet. My co-chef is Tanya Geisler.  We hosted our first ever Coach Buffet in Montreal last night.  And late late, after everything was wrapped up, with our mouths yawning and our eyes half closing, we read evaluation after evaluation. The verdict: Coach Buffet #1 was a resounding success.

The recipe:

Creativity to dream a vision the guts and drive to make it happen

A business partnership and coaching every step of the way

12 great Montreal life and business coaches who formed the “Coach Buffet”

Participants (professional and business owners) who, as early adopters, showed up fully…hungry for coaching and possibility

Friends and family who supported us through our first event (i.e. for registration, time keeping, photography/ design, spreading the word, access to venue and encouragement)

Openness to the miscellaneous things that will make this “soup” better and better and better

Back to the horoscope. I haven’t been eating soup daily.  Frankly because I like making it for others far more than I enjoy eating it myself.  Coach Buffet was this for me.  We made the metaphorical soup and while others feasted, we were nourished.

Now, metaphors aside. We are building a scalable business franchise model. You will hear more about Coach Buffet.

Coach Buffet Toronto takes place on Tuesday, November 17th. Register online.

    I love your description of Coach Buffet as a satisfying soup – it was definitely that! I very much enjoyed my first experience of CB, and have just good feedback. You and Tanya are onto something pretty interesting! When’s the next one??…
