Now let me get out of the way so Lexi can share her story with you!

My journey in spirituality and personal development started accidentally after dealing with an array of sports injuries (of all things) in High School.

I was told I ‘needed’ back surgery and that there were no other options for me. Luckily, I was stubborn, a healer but a learner. I dived into the world of alternative healing and found yoga. Through developing a regular yoga practice and learning how emotional health and nutrition influences our physical capacity to heal, I was able to avoid back surgery entirely.
It was a very natural next step for me to become a certified holistic health coach and yoga teacher. I taught yoga throughout college and took on private holistic health coaching clients part-time.
My self-belief when it came to entrepreneurship, however was at an all time low. I was pursing my undergraduate degree in marketing and I tried desperately to fit the mold of society’s expectation of me and dove head first into corporate.
It wasn’t long after that my Inc. 5000 job spiritually broke me. I worked directly with the Vice President in a top marketing position but I was still left unfulfilled. I knew something had to change and I was determined to make it happen.” ~Lexi Schaffer
What I personally love so much about Lexi is that even though she is a badass business woman, she hasn’t been dehumanized by business, and she holds her intuitive guidance over anything else.
Where were you at before you transformed your life? What was your experience, emotional state, and perspective like?
Prior to entrepreneurship, my life looked the part but internally, I was crushed by the weight of knowing I couldn’t even afford to move out of my parents’ basement. So I took a leap of faith. Within 3 months of leaving my 9-5 I replaced my corporate income. 
During that period of your life, what did you wish for or dream of the most for yourself?
More than anything, I wanted to feel liberated. Liberated from a soul-sucking corporate job that left me passionless and liberated financially, too. I knew I could have both. Passion and money. This might trigger some people… So let me dive deeper. I’ve always known money is a mutual resource. It’s not good or evil. Money gives you the opportunity to take charge, invest in things that matter to you and create a larger impact in the world. This was my dream.
When your life began to change, what caused the shift(s) for you?
I took a total leap of faith when I left my corporate job and a lot of things shifted. All of a sudden I was in charge of my schedule, my clients, my marketing strategy. It was all up to me. This was a huge responsibility. I made sure to prioritize self-care and my spiritual practice before diving into my daily work-grind. I believe by prioritizing self-care my successes were able to multiply in such a short period of time.
What did your transformation look like for you, and how did the experience feel?
I jokingly tell everyone wanting to advance their personal development and spirituality to become an entrepreneur because there’s no way to avoid the mind, body & soul connection when you’re the CEO of your own company. For me, having a dedicated morning routine and spiritual practice helped maximize my intuition and business successes.
What practice, tool, or mindset has been the most meaningful and impactful for you along your journey?
Kundalini Yoga and Meditation is the foundation of my personal spiritual practice and I attribute many of my successes in both my personal life and in my business because of this practice. I highly recommend everyone experiences a 40 day meditation practice as well as several Kundalini classes in person to get a better feel for this style of yoga. It’s comprehensive, practical and powerful. I cannot talk higher of this style of yoga and I hope everyone gives it a try at one time or another!
Having gone through the transformation that you have now, what would you say to your past self?
Trust the process, have faith and enjoy each and every day you are alive. Even though you have big dreams and goals there is so much in your present to be grateful for right now.
Where is your life now? What is your experience, emotional state, and perspective like?
Today, I have more clarity than ever before on my mission and vision for my business. I work with entrepreneurs who know that deep down they are limitless, and are done living anything less than their best life. My clients are experts at what they do; they just need to streamline their marketing strategy with a coach who’s been where they are and know the fast-track route to success (that’s where I come in.)
I teach my clients to plug you into their soul’s purpose, brand their unique gifts, master attraction marketing (& then automate it), make sure they’re serving from their highest self and then scale their impact with ease.
I’ve identified my unique skillset and who I’m most equiped to help and it’s my job to help other light workers identify their unique gifts so they can create a larger impact in the world while working less and making more. That is my purpose. What’s yours?
While I am completely and wholeheartedly biased here, I must say I could listen to Lexi share about her experiences and passion all damn day. Her energy is so radiant and infectious! What I love so much about Lexi and her story is this: Lexi has defied “the impossible” and made her life HERS in the exact way she wanted to. If you ever struggle to acknowledge your infiniteness, the power you hold to create your life, or even your belief in yourself that you can try, re-read this interview and get yourself inspired and empowered.

If you’d like to work with Lexi Schaffer personally, you can find the right way to do that for you here.

How Big Are You Willing To Be?

How Big Are You Willing To Be?


How big are you willing to be? How much are you willing to grow? How boldly, daring, courageous, authentic, and loud are you willing to become?

These are the questions on my mind lately.. So often I see people being more than okay with being small, settling in their comfortable little lives. Yet simultaneously everyone has a dream they are dreaming, and everyone wants more, or wants to do more. Less of us are willing to do what it takes though. To own their power, to allow themselves — push themselves — to expand and grow into the largeness of their dreams. They say you cannot get what you do not ask for… so why not ask for more (instead of complaining of what ‘little’ you have)? Or, even better, go and get yourself more.

How Big Are You Willing To Grow from The Spirit & Soul Blog

Many of us say we want to make our mark on the world in a meaningful way, so let’s think about that. The bigger the droplet, the larger (farther) the ripple.

This one is a little deeper than usual, I know. It came from a deeper place of reflection. I am pursuing my passion and I am going after that ‘more’ we are talking about here today. I tend to go after the bigger things wholeheartedly. As much as I know and believe I can do it, this path can get hard and become a heavy stress sometimes. Recently in a time of heavy stress amidst my own breaking + expansion I began to think about this bigness and smallness, comfortable and uncomfortable.

In this particular instant I am speaking of I was of my niche being too small. I felt this was the reason the blog’s growth wasn’t where I wanted it to be. It dawned on me though, while watching a video of my current favorite Jordan Bach’s, that it is not my niche. It is my reach. My reach is small right now, and my ripple is little. Though it be but little it is fierce… and it is growing. And I have to remember, I am only 18. I have only been doing this for (coming up on) 8 months.

The spiritual/personal development/intuitive business leaders that I look up to, and so admire and am inspired by have been doing what they do for a long time. They all started somewhere. We all do. Once upon a time their reach was smaller than they wanted it to be. They were willing to grow, they were willing to become big. They were committed to their passion and being in their power, honing their craft along the way, and expanding throughout it all. If you look closely your idols are doing the same still, too.

We all start somewhere. How big are you willing to be?

I can tell you this: I am right here. I am committed. If I wasn’t enough before, from this moment on I am 100%. I am honing my crafts, and I am expanding. I will not stay small or be content with settling. I will create all that I wish and more. I have the courage to go after it, and I choose to use it. I will get there in time.

And so it is. And it will be.
