I believe that entrepreneurship gives Badass Bleeding Hearts like us the power to make the world a better place AND pay the bills

(at least until we succeed in burning down this patriarchal, capitalist, white-supremacy worshiping farce of a system, and replace it with something that isn't completely fucked... obviously 😉 )

You-about-graphic

need to make a difference in the world… but you also need to make a living, and you're not quite sure how to do both (at least, not without burning yourself out).

… are open to new ideas, but you refuse to pretend to be something you're not.

… aren’t afraid to work harder and smarter (mostly smarter 😉

… are tired of struggling and worrying that you aren't good enough.

i-about-graphic

… am fired up by helping Badass Bleeding Hearts do work that supports every aspect of their lives.

… love helping you change the stories that hold you back.

… believe that a thriving business starts with understanding yourself and what you need to thrive.

… realize that success is meaningless if you sacrifice the things that are most important to you to get it.

I would say that "together, it’s magic," but it’s so much better than magic!

We won’t be burning candles, visualizing, and praying for success. We'll work with practical & tangible business skill sets, and what we create will be carefully crafted and constantly tested.

(Plus, it's exponentially less likely to release a horde of goblins on the unsuspecting populous.)

Describe myself in three words?

Badass Bleeding Heart.

My name is Heidi Hauck and I am a coach, a mother, a multi-passionate introvert and change-maker obsessed with helping purpose-driven small businesses thrive like I know they can.

I’ve spent my entire life fascinated by the intersection of business and psychology. In my 10 years as a coach (and a lifetime bleeding heart), one of the most pivotal truths I’ve ever learned is this:

And yes, I’m even including a few Business Coach type folks… because I recognize that I’m not the best fit for everyone, and these fabulous people are my peers, my friends, and my collaborators - NOT my “competition.” If I’m not the right coach for you, I would happily steer you towards any one of them <3

You don’t have to choose between building a thriving business or making a meaningful difference in the world. You can do both.

Utilizing my own Superpowers, I’m here to help Badass Bleeding Hearts recognize and understand their own gifts, strengths, and unique purpose in life. I teach them how to create an environment that will support them and their dreams so that they can build a thriving, sustainable business that creates meaningful change in the world.

MY ORIGIN STORY

(Warning: Topics of a Sensitive Nature Ahead)

 

For as long as I can remember, I’ve cared deeply about others - Fairness & Thoughtfulness have always been two of my core Values.

When I was a teenager, my deep caring and empathy began to feel like a problem… it didn’t feel safe to care so much, in a world that seemed to care so little.

As a result, I struggled with depression through my early teens - everywhere I looked I saw misery and pain, and everyone seemed to accept it and think that was “just the way things are.”

(I actually had someone tell me “you aren’t the only one who feels that way” as if it was supposed to make me feel better… what they didn’t realize was how much worse that made it… because that meant I was right… the world really was a shitty, fucked up place...)

The idea that I was doomed to grow up and be just another miserable asshole making everyone around me miserable, was too much to bear… So when I was 16, I tried to kill myself.

I failed (obviously), which was both a blessing and a curse.

I didn’t really want to hurt my family by leaving them like that… but I also didn’t know how I could handle living, knowing that life was going to just keep getting harder.

Eventually, I figured out that if I was going to live in this messed up place, I had to figure out how to make it mean something… I had to figure out how to NOT be a miserable asshole spreading more misery.

It hasn’t been an easy path of course. Our society is so insanely fixated on money and appearances, I’ve admittedly strayed more than once (especially in my impressionable early 20’s, which is how I ended up with an accidental bookkeeping business I hated).

But my NEED to make a difference, to make the world a better place and help save myself and others from turning into grown up assholes, has led me to constantly reconnect with my purpose, to seek out teachers who push me to follow my calling, and to work through the moments of self-doubt and fear.

And so I’ve built a business that allows me to use my powers for good, guiding my fellow Badass Bleeding Hearts in building a business that makes them happy, makes a positive difference, and pays the bills!

An unexpected side-effect of doing this work? Connecting with and supporting my fellow Badass Bleeding Hearts has brought me a joy and sense of fulfillment I feared I’d never find. I’m not some suffering martyr, sacrificing myself for the good of the world - I am in love with the people I work with (platonically of course) and inspired by the work we are doing to make this world a significantly less-shitty place.

That’s why this work isn’t just my business, it’s my calling.
