40. Coming Out of the Spiritual Closet

How can spirituality help you and your business?

Today’s guest is Intuitive Coach Benjamin Stubbs. An Intuitive Coach brings a perceptive rather than prescriptive approach to working with their clients and Ben relies on his intuition to know the questions to ask to help them access their own ‘inner wisdom’ to achieve professional and personal success.

He notes the work of Dr Joe Dispenza as being particularly influential as well as concepts ranging from The Law of Attraction to quantum physics.  With a background in teaching, Ben talks passionately about his role as a guide in helping people find the right answers for themselves, to help them gain a greater understanding and appreciation for who they are.
