Hey Llynne, can you introduce yourself to us?
I am a professional ‘Fairy Godmother’ and also I own Celestial Dream Garden’s Guidance and Life Transformation Services. We can be found on the web at www.MyCelestialGarden.com. I have recently become a published author of 2 books, a radio talk show host, live video blogger, teacher, and inspirational speaker.
I now show people who are struggling and wanting more from their personal and professional lives that are open to a new way of looking at and doing things differently. I believe this to be a proven step by step way to reconnect to their vitality, happiness, and prosperity which in time will help them to see their dreams come true and fall in love with their life again.
Can you tell us a little bit about you and your career background prior to launching Celestial Dream Garden?
I have worked for many companies and ran several successful businesses before I became a Fairy Godmother. My businesses centered around helping people, but being a single mom I also worked and took a lot of online classes.
What additional courses and qualifications have you taken?
I have gotten my Master’s in Cognitive Behavioural Therapy, my MBA in Entrepreneurship and Small Business Management, and my Doctor of Theocentric Psychology, PsyThD.
It was from there I went on to become a Licensed Hypnotherapist( CMS-CHt ), A Level 3 Reiki Master, an Intuitive Accountability and Life Coach, A Success in small business career coach, and became certified to teach Time Management & Productivity, The Silva Mind Manifestation Technique, NLP, and Tapping ( Or The Emotional Freedom Technique- EFT). Then I went on to go and get my certifications in Past Life Regression, Inner Child Therapy, EDMR Therapy, and Conflict Resolution.
Wow! OK tell us more about the coaching and communication methods you use at Celestial Dream Garden?
I teach & coach both in person at my office in Farmington New Mexico, and virtually. I have an amazing platform that lets me connect with my clients from all over the world by phone or by video chat. I send emails, videos, mp3’s and text my clients every week since we live in a wondrous digital age and my business reflects that, I also send my clients packages through the mail as well.
Why do you think so many of us are unable to identify the areas in our life that are preventing us from experiencing a greater well being without seeking the help of a professional?
Truthfully, I have heard many reasons why people do not seek the help of a professional. However, after doing this for over 5 years now I have to say it is the thought of fear, plain and simple. I see people afraid of success, of money, of changing their life, and even fear of what others will think if they do this. That last one is a biggie. No matter what the fear is, people let themselves be crippled by it and will not take the risk needed to move forward.
How would you say you are helping in aiding us to achieve our definitive goals?
I help people who are struggling and wanting more from their personal and professional lives become crystal clear about what they want, get over the obstacles in the way, and teach them a proven step by step way to reconnect to their vitality, their happiness, and their prosperity every day.
As a solopreneur, how are you funding Celestial Dream Garden?
I have funded my business a lot of the time by taking a 2nd job. I have scrimped and saved every dime that I could to apply it to the shoestring budget that I had when I first started. But I had faith and a plan and now the business funds itself.
Can you us what is your most seminal point whilst building Celestial Dream Garden?
When my daughter was born, I was in a very abusive relationship. I left him and as I healed I realised that I was very screwed up mentally. Since I did not have money for a therapist, I started going to school so that I could learn how to mend myself. As I learned, I quickly realised that there was a way I could help others avoid being miserable in their own lives and learn to how to accomplish their dreams.
The most rewarding moment in your personal life?
When my daughter became a wonderful woman with a family of her own. I have also bought my dream truck and house whilst having my amazing soulmate by my side.
Can you tell us what areas you have struggled with the most in business?
Having that focus, determination and areas of marketing have been my biggest struggles.

Social media, podcasts, and word of mouth
What is the best piece of advice you have received to date?
Not to focus on what is around me but rather to focus on what I want my life to be no matter what.
What is the number 1 critical lesson you have learned along your path to success?
That I have had to be consistent and positive in what I do, say, and think about in my life.
How do you create an evenly balanced work and personal life?
It’s hard, I struggle with it often. I have a wonderful supportive team in place that understands that I am a work-a-holic. They help me take time off and laugh. They help me focus on me and do not judge or ridicule when I get so involved in a project that I forget that the sun is even supposed to have shone that day!
Which other leading entrepreneurs and leading female pioneers do you also admire and why?
Opera is at the top of the list! She is just amazing. So positive, goal-oriented, and willing to help people. Plus she has an amazing story.
