Tell us a bit about you. Where are you from and what do you do?
My name is Paleta and I am from Switzerland originally. I’m a movement artist and choreographer working with artists, performers, and singers who want to get in touch with their own movement when they perform, be more comfortable on stage, and feel like they’re not performing something that doesn’t represent them or what they’re about, but to be really connected and authentic within their performance.
Before you joined the Business Accelerator, what was going on?
I was collaborating with Nike on different projects and able to travel around to different places for workshops. People got really interested in me, and teaching movement, dance and yoga classes. I wanted to join the Business Accelerator for a while – when I had discovered you and when I discovered the Business Accelerator, I was like okay, this is what I need to do!
Why London Real?
I connected with you when I found you. The first time I saw you was when you were interviewing Ido Portal. Obviously I loved what Ido is talking about, but then I just was like okay, I really, I really feel you too. I was already looking into some business stuff, and knew I wanted to create something of my own, but I looked into weird things like affiliate marketing and passive income but I just didn’t feel connected. When, then I found out about your Business Accelerator, I was like, okay. This is more of my lineage, this is more of what I believe in.
How was the webinar when you had to actually sell your product?
So it was a really really cool experience to be honest. I had an incredible turnout on my webinar, I had 25 people joining me, who showed interest in what I do, in what I have to offer, and, I made 17 sales on this first webinar. It was not even about the sales for me, to be honest, but it was really about this confirmation that I’m on the right path. I’m on the path of sharing what I believe in, and it resonates with people, and they believe that it will support them on their journey. That to me was like, wow, okay. Everything that has been building up over years is coming to its fruition.
How does that feel?
It feels great. At the same time, I’m very aware still that I’m in the beginning, you know? I’m in the beginning of creating something big. I’m still learning, I’m still understanding, but, I have already come a long way. And, it’s kind of that feeling of yeah, the universe is giving me signs I’m doing the right thing, in a lot of ways.
How many courses did you end up selling?
I ended up selling 38 courses.
So now you’ve got 38 students you’re taking through your course?
Tell me about your classmates on this course?
It’s kind of crazy, all these people around the world, working on their businesses, going through the same thing as you. It is crazy, but, at the same time, so powerful. Really really powerful.I’m not naturally a person who is like, I wanna be part of this community, I wanna be part of this community, but it is really, really amazing for me to understand and to see how important and how beneficial this community has been through this process, to really have people around you who support you in what you do.
To someone who’s thinking about taking the Business Accelerator, what would you tell them?
If you’re already thinking about it, do it, okay? I’m very, very grateful for the course, I feel grateful for the people I met on the course, I cherish the experience. It’s not been easy, but I feel content within myself at the moment, with what I do, with where I’m taking things, and how I’m pushing myself.
