Becoming Bold With Robbie WallsMy guest is Robbie Walls. Robbie, welcome to the show. How are you doing? How are you? I am great. Thank you. What are we going to talk about? You have quite a few things, Founder of The Walls Speak and BOLD GIRL BIZ. I love to create. I truly believe that we are the creators of our own destinies and our own lives. I’m sure everyone has heard that before, but is it true? Do you believe that? Can you do it? The answer is yes. I am a big walking testimony that it does happen. It doesn’t happen fast, but it happens because of our thoughts. I am a teacher. I’m an educator. My parents are teachers, my sisters, and everyone in my family. I went to college to become a teacher. I had no choice right after that. Around 2008, I said, “I don’t want to do this for the rest of my life.” My parents retired after 48 years of teaching. It’s the same job, just different faces. I’m so over that. I said in 2008, “I’m done.” It all happened one day at a restaurant. I heard someone say, “You are the creator. You make your own decisions. You can do this.” They were having a conversation at the table, and I just overheard that. It stuck to me like a magnet. It honed on me. I began to create. I wanted to become an entrepreneur. That’s where the journey started. Here it is in 2023, and I’m still going. My first business as an entrepreneur was an alpaca business, so I studied alpaca. I’m a Science major teacher. Did you start raising alpacas? I started raising alpacas. I started selling alpacas because that’s what you do in that business back then. You bred the best with the best, and then you sold the animal for its fiber. It was the best business, and my kids learned a lot. We grew up in that business. Until the fall of 2008 when I jumped out to become an entrepreneur. The economy fell, but I kept going. I kept going with it. Finally, it sizzled out in 2015. I decided that I wanted to travel. I took that to a travel business. My travel business is called Living the Life Vacations. I’m fast-forwarding. Many other things happened in between there. I decided to also get a franchise. I’m also a Sylvan Learning Center owner so I own that. I have a travel business right now, and then Sylvan Learning Center. When COVID hit, I began to become a creator. I love communicating. I love talking. I love people. Out of that, came BOLD GIRL BIZ. I love that name. Thank you. BOLD GIRL BIZ Podcast. That podcast is about entrepreneurship. It’s about training and teaching entrepreneurs to become entrepreneurs and to have that bold self. You’ve done so much. Now, you’re basically speaking and doing the coaching and mentorship. I teach. I coach. I mentor. Those are three different areas, not all and one are the same. Mentorship is my ultimate favorite. Teaching is what I do when I have my courses. Of course, the coaching is what also is in the teaching and the coaching along the way. Other than that, I absolutely love it. It is so much fun. What is the difference between coaching and mentorship? In coaching, there are a lot of questions. Not only just questions, it’s more of finding yourself. When I’m mentoring you, I’m your guide. I’m right along to guide you. You have to be very vulnerable and very willing to accept everything that we do together. That mentorship is a partnership. That mentorship is you and I coming together alongside, and I am guiding you. It digs deeper. It’s so much more handholding than the coaching, 100%. Which topics do you help the most with? I see something about self-realization and consciousness. That one hit me. That seems like it would be very rewarding for your students, and give them a lot of advantages. I’m guessing that that would be very helpful for any individual to master that, acknowledge it, and realize it. What would it be? The word that you’re looking for is awareness. That’s good. All of those words led up to awareness. What we do in becoming bold is dig down into yourself. We have a lot of blocks. We have a lot of past hurts. We have a lot of programming that started way long ago in our conscious minds when we were born. As conscious people, we are tuned in to exactly what we have been taught throughout our life. At some point in time, there is an awareness that comes about, and you begin to ask questions. We start with a lot of questions. Those questions are around ourselves. What is holding us back? Many of us will say, “I don’t want to do that because I don’t feel.” When I hear that word feel, that ding is what we want to grab. That feeling is a part of that emotion that is tied to that subconscious mind that we work on. Whether it’s limiting beliefs, whether it is the words “I can’t,” whether it’s, “I never have done that before,” all those words are lined up withholding that particular individual back from moving forward. We dig deep inside that conscious mind to become subconscious. The subconscious is where we hold all of those gifts, those talents, and all of those things that I pull out of everyone that is in our little group. We have a little small group. I only take nine people. Within that nine people, I interview those because I want to know what you are trying to align with. What is very important when it comes to becoming yourself is finally finding that lineup of who you want to become. In that process, that is where we find you are becoming your bold self. That’s interesting. It is all about alignment. It’s all about receiving, being aware, and knowing, “This is the process that I need to trust.” That’s one thing that’s always intrigued me. As you were saying those feelings that you have, how are they blocking you? How do you get through them? That seems to me the hardest part because it’s even recognizing what type of feeling it is. To me, it’s generally associated with fear because at least that’s how we may interpret it. I’m not saying that’s correct, but as an individual, I guess that’s how a lot of people think. I don’t know. We go to fear first. We do go to fear first. Fear is the culprit. Once we get rid of that fear, and I do mean get rid of it. I don’t even want you to think about it. I want you not to become yourself. It’s almost like acting. It’s almost like you are embodying yourself as someone else because that person doesn’t have any fear. I have Will Smith when he played Muhammad Ali. He had to let go of Will to become Muhammad Ali. Will is not a fighter, but he became a fighter. I understand what you’re saying because it’s the same with any other actor or actress. I don’t even remember, but I was watching something last night, just a few minutes of it. The way that so many actors and actresses can become completely different people. I was thinking about that even the other day. Is that how they are? They go from playing somebody in World War I, and then going to a sci-fi movie. From one extreme to the other type of personality, location, time period, and genre. It’s just everything. That’s basically what it’s like because you have to step out of your body into something that doesn’t feel right. Is that one reason it’s so hard for us to even find our real selves? Yes, it is. Let me stop there because you said a very important thing. You said that we have to leave our bodies to become someone else. In acting, you do. It’s hard sometimes for them to even shake it off. Acting is so deep subconsciously that you let go of everything and become that character, I’m going to say. For us as civilians, that process is the same but we’re going to minus the fear. We’re just going to be creating, and we’re just going to allow things to happen. Once we start allowing things to happen, it’s just the process. The universe, when we ask for things, it is given. Have you heard that before? Yes. It may not happen right away. It may not happen when you want it, but the process begins. That is the true self that you are becoming once you start the creating process. It sounds like a beautiful process too. That would be very awakening. It is awakening. Within that awakening, then we start attracting. When we start attracting things, things start to unfold. We’re talking on the surface here. Maybe the audience needs some real down hard, “I’m going through this.” Let’s play a role here because it’s very important to be real when we’re on this show because people are going through things and they need answers. People want answers. Instead of the rhetoric of it all, they want hardcore truth answers, “How do I get to this point?” How do you get to that point? If you had any examples or anything that you might be going through, and then we can role play it, or you know a friend that might be going through something. That way, I can get in tune. Talking on the surface is not real-time for me. I am a now person. It’s like happening now. In the past couple of years, I’ve started changing careers and taking on additional things. What kind of advice or what can we do with that? Let me go back. When you decided to change your career, how did that happen? Maybe similar to you. I got tired of doing what I was doing before. It was the same thing. Nothing was changing or evolving. I like to be challenged. I like to talk to a lot of different people, and I wasn’t getting that there. What you did was an awakening. You had a shift in your body and your alignment. You decided, “This is no longer serving me. I’m not challenged. I want to go bigger. I want to do something that is going to challenge me. Not only is it going to challenge me, but I’m also going to feel different about myself. I want to experience something different.” You didn’t even have any fear around it. You knew because you were aware that the timing had aligned. You became in alignment with what you wanted. Once that happened, you said, “I’m done. I’m shifting.” You had a shift in your awareness and soul, and you made that happen. You went from what to what? From primarily focusing on real estate to now marketing. Did you know that it would be marketing or you just thought it would be real estate? I just thought pretty much that I would only focus on real estate for a long time. It’s what I thought. I still do it but not as a primary. I wanted something additional. That is beautiful. Do you see what happened here? Real estate came to mind. You watched something that, “I definitely want to do real estate.” In that process, you found out, “Now, I’m doing marketing.” Everything is going to start unfolding more. Why? It’s because you’re taking that step forward into the unknown and everything is starting to open up a new door for you. You’re getting challenged, that’s what you wanted. Everything is going to start unfolding more. Why? It's because you're taking that step forward into the unknown and everything is starting to open up a new door for you. Click To Tweet Interesting. I didn’t even think of it like that. I hadn’t, so I’m blown away by what you said. Guess what? That marketing has led you here, and then it’s going to take you to other places. It’s going to get bigger, and then you’re going to say, “I want to still do marketing, but now I’m going to be doing something else. I’m going to promote my own program around this.” It just gets bigger. As you continue to grow in it, you trust the process. It’s so true because that’s exactly what happened. I didn’t have any fear at all, which I should have. I hadn’t thought of it that way. That is the part where self-awareness becomes. You still have more aligning to do. I still have more alignment to do. Even in my process, as I’m speaking to the audience, I am very intuitive so I can hear what’s going on in people’s thoughts and things. I impact in that way. At the same time, I’m creating this travel business, BOLD GIRL BIZ, which I love. I love the two. What I’ve done now is I’ve merged them to go live. I’m taking BOLD GIRL BIZ on a cruise, and I have different speakers that will be on a four-day cruise, and you will get the most impact on a cruise. I’m taking it big. That’s awesome. I didn’t see it but it’s like a 360. It all comes together. As you can see BOLD GIRL BIZ, I also have The Walls Speak because my last name is Walls. That’s where my speaking comes in. I can see it and it’s still creating and it’s still formulating. If any of our viewers want to get additional information, you can go to FullerWalletMedia.com/BecomingBold. I love that. Thank you. Before we go, do you have anything else you want to leave the viewers with? Any other information or final words? The final word is I want everyone to take away that you are definitely a true being that is so powerful that you don’t even know. When you want to become aware of what it is that’s eaten at you and that you want to do, you can do it. Taking that first step, moving forward, and saying, “When the universe hears it, the universe knows and it’s coming back to you. Trust the process. It does take time and it will happen.” Thank you. I love that final message. I wholeheartedly believe that. Yeah. It will. Robbie, thank you so much for joining us. Once again, you can get it from FullerWalletMedia.com/Becoming Bold. Thank you so much. This has been great. I love talking with you. I’m glad that I put you on the spot, but I also humbly apologized if I stepped on any details. No, you didn’t at all. Honestly, it was a perfect example because I hadn’t viewed it that way. I think that’s also an issue that a lot of people need help with. It’s just seeing their life more clearly. It’s always through someone else to me. It’s the easiest way to do it. That was great because that would help a lot of people too.
