As a business woman I often feel that my intuition is one of my strongest tools I have, to make the right decisions in my biz.
Not long ago, it was quit shameful to admit that we act on our intuition, but only because we were under the influence of how men do business.
Today I KNOW that other then logical questions, systems and practical tools I have inner tools that can be even more powerful then the others.
Don’t be afraid to search for this inner power and guidance. We all have it inside our soul. (tweet that!)
I believe that women are connected to that inner strength even more then men and if it calls us – we should listen!
This is why I’ve created this special “INSPIRATION” Interview Series.
So you would see other amazing attentive women, how they’re following their heart and how they empower other women to do the same.
When I first read about Nisha Moodley I felt I had to bring her story and her way of thinking to you. So you could see how to combine your feeling, intuition and values; with taking practical actions and make things happen; in such a beautiful way.

1. What is the first thing you do when a new business idea jumps into your mind?
I check in to see if it aligns with what I’m up to in the world — does it match my vision for how I want to support my tribe? If not, I see if it’s a great idea for someone else I know who it’s more aligned for, and I give it away!
2. How do you know if this idea good for your business or not?
Mostly what I shared above — alignment. I also look to see what the motivation is behind the idea — is it coming from a desire to give and serve, or because it will stroke my ego in some way? This helps me sort out what’s real. I have an average of 5 new business ideas each month and I can’t possibly execute on them all! Instead, I see which ones fit and when they do, I put them in the calendar.
3. How do you deal with fears a new project holds?
Whenever I’m experiencing fear around a new project, it’s because my attention is on me and not the people I’m serving. As soon as I put my attention on the people I want to help through my project, it becomes worth it to face any of the negative effects that I’m fearful of. I also give myself lots of loving compassion — fear is normal and healthy — it’s just a sign I’m doing something new!
4. What is your favorite place to do your planning and to work on a new project?
It depends on the type of project. When I’m working on a project with someone, like the Live Free Retreat I’m hosting with my friend Sarah Jenks, it’s great to get away on our own retreat to brainstorm, live luxuriously and plan. When it’s a solo project, I will often settle into my couch with a cup of tea or head out to a local coffee shop. My aim is always the same: to embody the feeling that I want to have (or want other people to have) when the project launches. For example, when I was writing copy for my website, I dressed up in clothes and listened to a playlist that created the same feelings I wanted my site visitors to experience. I always want to be in that state now, so I’m creating from a place of energetic alignment.
5. What do you do if life happens and you’re not keeping up with your original plan? What keeps your motivation high?
This is great news! Life’s plan is always better, anyways, even if I can’t see it in the moment. This I trust. I first ask myself if my heart is still dedicated to the original plan. If it is, I just connect to that deep well of desire, and it’s all the motivation I need to keep going. Any rough patches along the way only make the finished product something we can hold more dearly.
