The Origin™ Interview Series: Part One – Attracting Unexpected Success Through Saying No

About a month ago, I had the honor of spending the day having heart-to-hearts with four of the extraordinary women who are members of the Origin™ Collective.

I got a little misty in each and every video (these women are incredible), and I finished the interviews with an even fuller heart, knowing that what we’re creating in Origin™ is teaching women around the world to:

  • Slow down
  • Ask for and receive support
  • Use their feminine essence as a superpower
  • Give themselves permission to go at their own pace
  • Increase their productivity through strategically scheduling their time
  • Say no to things that don’t feel right
  • Attract unexpected success by having tremendous self-respect and beautiful boundaries
  • Embrace their cyclical nature as an asset
  • Plus so much more!

Today I have the first of the interview series for you. You are going to LOVE our first Origin™ Empress, Clara, who’s a bilingual author, speaker, and coach, as well as the mother of a beautiful 18-month-old girl.

Clara particularly blew me away when she shared the way that being a member of Origin™ has helped her move from being hyper-goal-driven to allowing herself and her clients to go at their own pace.

Her story of setting up firm boundaries around what kind of speaking gigs she will and won’t accept, plus what she attracted when she recently said no to her first gig, was also pretty thrilling!

If you’ve been having a hunch that there’s more to growing a business while growing a family than putting your nose to the grindstone and pushing, you have to hear Clara’s story.

Get access to her inspiring story that shows you how transformative slowing down and saying no can be here:

“There’s magic in saying no to the things that don’t feel right.” ~ Clara Diaz

  • I absolutely loved this interview Clara and Kate. As a latina (from Venezuela), I feel in the same path as Clara. I have only 4 years living in USA (San Francisco), and starting over…leaving (somehow) behind my reputation and networking haven´t been easy…..Also, while hearing the interview I was feeling the wish to be very soon in Clara´s place, talking to you Kate about my achived progress from this place of “do less”, being intentional, trusting myself more and more……. “What I´m here to truly say”, is also something I´m pondering since I join Origin, and I know for sure that I´m building something big not only outside, but most importantly inside myself. ¡Thanks you!

    • Kate Northrup

      Thank you for listening in Maru and I have no doubt that you’ll be soon telling the story of the big thing you’ve built!

    • Hi Maru, thank you for your comment. I would love to know what you are building! You know I hear this phrase of starting over when in another country, but I am sure you know we take who we are where we go! I look forward to hearing from you!

  • I loved this interview, one of my biggest problems is not being able to say NO.
    It was actually my new year resolution for this year but fell short a bit :/ One of those things I’m going to have to continue to work at!
