- Can you tell us a bit more about yourself and your career journey?
Hey there, I am Miki, a wander soul, interested in the journey of personal evolution, self-discovery and life design. Hungry for experiences, eager to keep learning and passionate about inspiring people to do the same.
I always saw myself as a wanderer, going nowhere, while the rest of the world seemed to have all mapped out. Though, not walking in a straight line is what got me to this point I'm grateful for. It feels so rewarding to finally turn my multidisciplinary approach, thought to be a drawback, into my core distinction.
A snapshot into my life
I am a deep thinker and an even bigger dreamer. At 19 years old, my curiosity led me to study psychology, and it became the foundation for my open-minded personality, following into reading and learning about personal growth, meditation, spirituality, laws of Universe and more.
When I finalized my education, I thought I had everything figured out. I knew the path I wanted to go on, I was aware of the steps I needed to make and though, it didn’t seem simple, it seemed predictable. In what followed, I found myself in different professional roles, wandering around trying to find some fulfilment in my life. And it kept lacking. From HR to Communications to Social Media departments, I couldn’t settle with being ok. I wanted more; I deeply desired to wake up with excitement and hoped for making in difference in the environment I was a part of. I was not happy and I felt I wasn’t elevating anymore.
My intuition told me to go and so I did
So, I quit my latest job. I didn’t have a clear idea of what I wanted to do, of how will I manage to make a living out of it, but I was feeding my soul with creative concepts that sparked the light of freedom that I was seeking desperately.
I ended up following two completely different niches, in different times, always thinking and rethinking my personal brand and services to offer. As the days went by, I reached very low levels of self-confidence, personal worth and deep anxiety, worrying repeatedly about how I’m not going to make it. I was so afraid of people coming back to me saying “I told you so”. I also hit rock bottom financially, which was adding up pressure to my current unbalanced state.
I experienced confusion, questioning, learning, falling, rewriting my limiting beliefs, fighting blockages. I felt I was going nowhere, while all my friends seemed so clear with their paths, growing accountability and finances. I was lost.
Though, I can not regret this part of my life, since it was the hurt and pain that projected me in this new direction, and Soulmys was born.
- How did you get your idea or concept for the business?
Feeling empty and lifeless, I was transitioning through a time of darkness, feeling trapped in a tunnel without any glimpse of light. Only now I can see it actually as a time of transformation. I had built this personal prison within, fueled with aches and pains, obsessive reflection, crying. It was the moment I felt the need to turn to research about methods, tools, books, meditation, podcasts, gaining knowledge from experts who have gone through difficult life situations. I began to experience tiny internal shifts, but I couldn’t keep up always. Every day was a struggle, an inside battle between my current and my desired way of living. It was a low and unsteady process as the journey was unfolding until one day when I got excited with a new idea for me up to that point. My obstacles fueled me to go further into learning how to heal myself from within and ignited the deep calling in my soul to guide others back home to their most authentic selves.
- To what do you attribute your success?
After all this time, going back and forth several times, picking myself up from the bottom, I came to realize that what pushed me forward was my passion. I had a strong feeling that there's more to life which made it impossible for me to settle. I had no idea if I would be able to support myself living my purpose, but I had a fire inside me that I couldn't put down.
- What is unique about yourconcept?
Soulmys is a safe space, where people can find all the resources they need in one place, adjusting to their current needs. The Detox Your Lifestyle Workbook comes in a form of a self-coaching tool, in order to make it accessible for everyone to dig inside their true self. I focus on self-awareness and self-improvement by tapping into meaningful questions, exercises and practices.
- If you had one piece of advice to someone just starting out, what would it be?
My heart deeply yearns for being a light for others, helping navigate through the darkness. I would say we each hold the innate power within to heal, but sometimes a little guidance in the right direction could be needed to begin to uncover it.
Every moment is an opportunity to try again. If you’re feeling lost or unhappy with your current path you’re on, just switch the button. Do something. Anything. It doesn’t have to be the big move, but each baby step, done consistently, will take you to rewarding places. If you don’t know your passion, like I didn’t, just keep seeking. Use internet, talk with your friends, go out in the world, read about others’ stories and see what sparks a light in you. You don’t have to know what you’ re doing, you just have to let yourself lose in the process of experiencing.
- What motivates you to keep working on your business to achieve further success?
I have always aimed for freedom, thinking it is the ultimate life goal for myself. What I missed back then was the dualism of the concept: freedom from & freedom for, as well as understanding the responsibility that comes with it. What motivates me to go on is the image of myself as a better person that is stuck in my mind, but also the positive feedback from friends, acquaintances or strangers make my day every single time. Not to forget my vision board which lets me know I still have a long way to go haha.
- Is there anything else you wouldlike to share with our readers, any advice?
Don’t be afraid to fail, because if you are not happy now you can do no more damage. Try something new instead, go out of your comfort zone and never stop learning about yourself.
Get ready to embark on a journey that requires your full engagement in order to get from where you are now to where you want to be. You will learn about yourself, experiment with new tools and mindsets, and explore how your story fits into the bigger picture.
